India vs Pakistan on Twitter!

India vs Pakistan matches have always been an intense affair, be it the  hard fought matches on the field or the politics off the field. The most intense of the matches were probably the one’s played in the deserts of Sharjah. The matches these days between the 2 countries though played with the same passion lack the intensity of the matches yesteryear. Nobody can forget the famous Javed Miandad jumping up and down at the batting crease to poke fun at our wicket keeper Kiran More or the Aamir Sohail-Venkatesh Prasad incident of the 96 world cup. The latter still…

Being Social

Year 2004 I got back home from college and ran straight to my desktop PC. I first switched on my CPU and then the monitor and logged in to my Orkut account via Internet Explorer. There was a new testimonial waiting for me there written by my friend Prashanth and I was excited to read it though I had been bugging him to write one for me since weeks! It would show on my Orkut profile page and everyone would view it. Satisfied with what he had to say about me I then went onto check if I had any…

Mirror Mirror on the wall……..

October 1995 Riya checked her watch. It said 8:29 AM. She would make it on time to class after all! Having stayed up all night preparing for today’s exam she had somehow managed to oversleep and was now making a mad dash to the examination hall. The clock struck 8:30 just as she reached the door. It had been a tough two weeks for Riya just as it had been for the others in her class. The university exams were on and finally today they would be let free like a bird out of a cage. She looked around and everyone seemed to be mentally preparing themselves for that…

This One’s For THE Girl!

“Most people who meet my wife quickly conclude that she is remarkable. They are right about this. She is smart, funny and thoroughly charming. Often, after hearing her speak at some function or working with her on a project, people will approach me and say something to the effect of, you know, I think the world of you, Barack, but your wife, wow!” – Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope She looked awesome when she danced. I could see her jiving to the number Mambo Number 5. The guy dancing with her seemed to be constantly out of beat but…

All Over Down Under – Melbourne

Today was such a tiring day at school. Nobody realises how stressfull life is for an 8 year old! We have class after class with hardly any play break in between. On top of it I have to deal with a few bullies in class who want to have a part of my lunch packed by mom. And then to add to it there is so much homework! That is why I think the perfect song for an 8 year old would be “saari umar hum, marr marr ke jee liye, ek pal toh ab humein,jeene doh“ As I came…

He came, He saw…I shaved!

Before I begin, I would like to thank my good friend Kunal Borah – The Kaleidoscopic Kanvas for tagging me and pushing me to write this post. He is someone whom I can genuinely call my Blogging Friend because I have never met him but we seem to somehow tag each other in our blogs! So here’s my story…………………………………. I was passing by the room named TREATMENT ROOM in the hospital when I saw an intern bent over a patient. It was the surgery wing of the hospital, my favourite subject and I couldn’t help but peep in through the…

Different Strokes Of Pre-Marital Sex

It was our first night. We both were on our bed and looked at each other. She looked into my eyes and I could see that she really wanted me to know what she had in mind. But I did know exactly what she wanted and I wanted the same too! “Do you know exactly how it is done?” my wife asked me. “Of course!”  I said. “I have done it plenty of times earlier” I added. She looked at me surprised. I looked at her through the corner of my eye. “You know me since 3 years but you…

Darr ke aage JEETHU Hai!

Jeethender Singh was my classmate since we were in class 1. We were childhood aquantainces, not really friends because we weren’t that close. He was fondly known as Jeethu. We didn’t know much about each other except that I always felt he was a nice quiet boy who hardly spoke to anyone. Most of the time when we were in a group he would only smile or contribute an occasional word or two to the conversation.But that didn’t stop me from having a healthy rivalry with him when it came to studies.He was damn hard working and so was I….

A Walk To Remember!

ROAD RASH was a game which was a rage in the late 90’s and early 2000’s until the X-box’s and Play stations erased their fond memories. It is  a simple violent game which involved 2 motorists racing each other illegally with them hitting and kicking each other on their way to victory. We spent hours playing the game. I still have it on my PC and play it once in a while and today was just one of those days. It is probably the best way to take your frustrations out without hurting anyone other than your keyboad! After an…

Cleanliness – A path towards Godliness!

“Cleanliness is next to Godliness.” This is probably one of the most abused sayings not only because of it being used so much especially in schools but also because it is rarely respected.This along with the “A friend in need is a friend indeed” were probably two of my most favourite quotes right until I reached college.So why is it that the concept of cleanliness and hygiene which is taught to us probably in class 1 is forgotten in our adulthood? Which is why I want to take this journey of hygiene and sanitation right from our ‘naive‘ childhood to…

2015 DUMPlings

At the end of every year we all have a tendency to look at the events gone by in retrospect. At the end of it, all that we want to know is, has the year been a good one for me and how can I make the coming year a better one. This year has been an amazing one for me with me clearing my MS exams, joining work at our hospital as a staff and the icing on the cake at the being when my wife and me became first time parents having been blessed with our son in…
