The Real Fiction

All that we experience, our perceptions – sights & insights – seem like a surreal mix of fact and fantasy. There are no lines dividing anything anywhere & existence rides upon interpretations. This blog will surf, fly, jog, dive, swim, jump & at times even hobble through planes of experiences that will include poetry, protests, design, tales, photo-tales and whatever else is discovered & needs to be shared.

The poetry of logical ideas

The poetry of logical ideas

Life is not an artistic mystery, but a mathematical equation. Specky, my wife says so. She even quotes Albert Einstein: “If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.” And whenever she does that, I just...

Geometry, technology, and KarvaChauth

Geometry… Technology… and Karva Chauth… they are seemingly away from each other but actually complement each other. The truth is that when traditional flavours converge with mathematically clinical technology the output is magical. The magic, in this incidence, is the Galaxy Note3. Yes, the karva chauth app is an android app, but when you use...
This isn’t gadget gluttony!

This isn’t gadget gluttony!

What differentiates the real gadget connoisseur from the gadget glutton? Let me explain. Gadget gluttony is a meaningless hoarding of gadgets with little or no respect for technology and innovations… and a gadget connoisseur, on the other hand is one who dives into the uber cool and ultra modern and everything in between and remains...
A Mega Sunday

A Mega Sunday

How will I describe a ‘mega’ Sunday? Lots of things to eat? No. Getting up late and being lazy the entire day? No. Mall hopping? No. Winning a few more prizes on twitter? No. This Sunday has become MEGA because it felt great bringing the Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 & 6.3, my Nikon D5100, the...

The mystery of the half-empty glass

‘There is a Sherlock Holmes hidden in each of us… well, well, let’s say it is Miss Marple, if that pleases you. It could be 007 or Hercule Poirot or even one of the Famous Five that Enid Blyton gave us all. The point is that this spirit of investigation is inside us all. We...
The super salesman

The super salesman

Review of Samsung Galaxy S4 Well, the first truth that mobile companies need to realise is that they need super salesmen besides their super researchers, super designers, super technicians, and super strategists. The reason is that despite all the great innovations that a new mobile device may have, the consumer is generally either too far...
Camera for an intelligent dreamer!

Camera for an intelligent dreamer!

There was a time when photography was seeped in a complex universe that the uninitiated was afraid to step into. Then came a phase when despite the complexities remaining the same, people dared to get into photography because the cameras had suddenly become affordable. The digital camera era demolished whatever boundaries there were left and...
A Grand Galaxy?

A Grand Galaxy?

The galaxy isn’t just an enigma… it is a grand enigma. Something that towers above all else. Here is one short poem dedicated to the GRAND GALAXY… Stars twinkle and planets go about doing Whatever it is that they do best And some Galaxy majestically embraces them all Helping them shine and reach out To...
There is an artist within you – an incredible truth

There is an artist within you – an incredible truth

There is an artist hidden within each of us. The sad truth is that most of us let this artist remain there undiscovered. I’d say this heart-rending truth is as incredible as the fact that we all have the power to let that artist out into the world and show us all what it is...
A Note for the Future

A Note for the Future

What would anyone want a smartphone for? Will it be simply to talk to friends and relatives? Obviously no. There is a lot one can do with smartphones. If this be the case, what would a person do best with the smartest of smartphones today? Obviously, do a lot more than merely talk. So now...
Yes, it sounds incredible, but Genelia did pose for my camera!

Yes, it sounds incredible, but Genelia did pose for my camera!

Some days are just incredible… the 16th of November 2012 was one such day. This was a day when Samsung decided to create a Guinness World Record by launching its ‘Incredible Art’ campaign. This was also the day when I saw one of my old talented ‘coolest job’ friend Vineeth Vincent up there on the...
Defending smartphones is easy

Defending smartphones is easy

Does a new smartphone in your hands really signify that you are one with a great tech lifestyle? I’m asking this question because wherever I go I find people holding their mobile phone as if it were something that could take them a notch or two beyond all the other ‘lesser mortals’! Let us go...
