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.

Fitness is the New Attitude for the Indian Millennials

Fitness is the New Attitude for the Indian Millennials

Fitness isn’t about brute strength but all about a new attitude that the Indian millennials are forever thinking about. #LeanIsTheNewMean isn’t just another hash-tag that dominates the social media space around us but is pursued with a lot of involvement and creative interpretations. Only the other day I was reading about Beer Yoga and, believe...
A writer, a smartphone, and a thriller in the making

A writer, a smartphone, and a thriller in the making

This is the story of a writer who leaves his desk at dusk and goes out in search of a thriller. No, he was not carrying with him a pistol and 9mm bullets, nor is he trained in any of the martial arts… but he fortunately remembers to carry with him his new Moto G5...
The tourist who wanted a new phone

The tourist who wanted a new phone

This is commoner than most of us will seriously conclude… there are more tourists anywhere in the world who lose their phone and then remain restless as they watch everyone else in the group go click-tap-tap-click for no apparent reason! These are the sort of tourists who find a DSLR too difficult to understand, point-and-shoot...
Experience the freedom

Experience the freedom

No, this post is neither about the slogan decibels at JNU nor about the misplaced sense of patriotism by goons. This one is simply an attempt to talk about the way ‘make in India’ is being milked. Does this ring a bell? ‘Make in India’, I guess is all about the policy music used to...
Technology is not pointless

Technology is not pointless

Technology is not just a tool but much more than that… there is fun, learning, evolving, interacting, connecting, sharing, and so much happiness in being able to do what you were earlier not able to. Arthur C. Clarke wrote: ‘Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.’ I tend to agree with him because with...

The ruling party and the opposition on Galaxy S6

The ruling party and the opposition on Galaxy S6

Our parliament is always a hub of super activity and its corridors are places where power dialogues flow unimpeded and with a nonchalance that you find only in a Nargis Fakhri gliding on the aisle in a Suneet Verma creation! Yes, there is something stunningly accentuated when two politicians talk… especially if they happen to...
A bank in my backpack

A bank in my backpack

Well, we’ve all heard of banks being inside a smartphone… and the smartphone in the pocket. But listen, what if the battery of this smartphone goes kaput? You’ll be left sweating right in the middle of a transaction and even the water vendor on the roadside is going to smile at your plight. Let me...
What if?

What if?

What if every smartphone were to cost a bomb? What if every smartphone claimed to have all high-end features? What if every smartphone looked the same? Fortunately, this isn’t the case… and so the teeming masses can breathe easy. There are smartphones that don’t cost a bomb… and give all the vital features at a...
Creative energy redefined

Creative energy redefined

Somewhere between absurdity and anti-absurdity is the zone where real creative energy can be found. The sort creative energy that is conveyed by the letter ‘A’ in the international radio phonetic alphabet, an unofficial leader, the first letter of the Greek alphabet, the beginning or creation, or a dominant individual in a pack or group...
MAGYTE

MAGYTE

The year isn’t 3333 or some such incredible zoom into the future. The future that I see clearly in my mind isn’t even ten years later. And yet I cannot possibly pinpoint the exact day or month or year. All I can say is that the real future is near, quite near. The future where...
A dramatic revelation by Nargis Fakhri

A dramatic revelation by Nargis Fakhri

You’ve missed it all. You’ve missed the drama. You’ve missed all that the gorgeous Nargis Fakhri revealed on the 16th of April 2014. You’ve missed the fascinated look in her eyes. You’ve missed her swirls and the twirls onstage. You’ve missed the husky tone in which she said: ‘I love ChatON.’ A part of me...
