Perks of being a woman!

It’s a routine day at work and over the past year I have acclimated to the copious amounts of chivalry men shower towards women in this country. Be it waiting for you to enter the elevator even though they are ahead of you in the queue (er, yes folks here queue up afore the elevator)…

Good Men Do Exist!

P.S: No drama, no philosophy, let me come straight to the point. Good Men Do Exist. In the wake of men being criticised for being male chauvinists and ruthless towards women, let’s take a moment to look around and appreciate the morality that lies within them. I am not renouncing the fact that the male…

Tint of Bravery!

It was yet another day of catching a train to work and the usual struggle to find a seat until my station arrives. My work is a 30-minute train journey and usually, I have no luck finding a seat at least until 15-minutes into the journey. Not today, I found one next to a lady…

Sultan Bhaijaan

Movie : Sultan Category : Bhaijaan’s Indian Film Industry Cast: Salman Khan, Anushka Sharma Director: Ali Abbas Zaffar Music: Vishal-Shekhar   Let me start with giving a heads-up, this one isn’t for Salman fans who like his swag and moves or his dancing(which never matches with the background dancers, just saying!). He has actually pulled off quite…

Lazy Lingo!

In my adult life so far, I have seen some real lazy stuff happening around me. People are lazy about working – in general, cooking, driving and even about eating food. Just when I thought that the list is pretty much done, I hit a new discovery… Lazy about pronouncing an entire word! Like literally they…

Brains @ Work!

There are days in office when your workload is low and the music coming in from ear-pods which usually helps you focus on work starts sounding absolutely boring. I decide to give the ear-pods some rest for the day and start hearing conversations from real humans around in the office. “There’s going to be a…

Mexican Stint

Post a long Easter weekend, the office committee decides to host a Mexican feast for all employees on a minimum tariff. Gracias! The set-up is impressive, a live BBQ cooking meat in the cafeteria balcony and a spread of veggies, meat and various sauces inside the cafeteria. The serving staff have fancy Mexican hats and…

Heels!

I always fancied the idea of wearing high heels and presumably the only time I cursed my 5″8 inches of height. It is probably one of those things which you always long to have but simply cannot because you would end up looking like a complete Idiot! Heading to work, I am in a jam…

Hot Chocolate

“Could you help me with this Hot Chocolate cup please”, I request the young Indian boy at the cash counter of the departmental store. It’s been quite a day, been up from 3 AM in the morning for an assignment back in office, could hardly open my puffed eyes and read the damn instructions on…

Memory Eraser

Being a Software Engineer by profession, I get to deal with a lot of installations and un-installations of software’s as a part of my job. “Would you mind removing that software so we could bring in the latest alternative we discussed in our meeting yesterday?” orders the boss. Staring him hard inside my brains, I…

The Proposal

Walking along the street near my office, I feel the place has turned shimmering red. The shops around are bustling with bright red roses and fancy worded cards, apparently it is Proposal Day! The boys around the train station with their Adidas kicks and Nike bags are holding fancy wrapped up gifts trying to locate…

Turning 18

Been setting up Kindle on my new iPad the entire night hoping to put it to use during the travel back home. Trying hard to put my head into this book and concentrate on what’s the writer trying to place in my brains, but the gossip around is so intriguing that it catches my attention…
