Murphy’s Law

Categories: Experiences

In 2004, the share markets went down all across the world. They were slightly more down than usual down. They said that it was sort of a minor-recession-cycle-low which happens every 4-8 years. I was just about to start college. I thought to myself: Thankfully it is happening now… What worse would happen at the […]

Notes from the Lockdown, Day 15

Categories: Experiences

It might be day 10 or day 13, I am not sure. I haven’t gone out since March 5th or March 13th, save 2 days in between. So, it is all blurry. Kindly excuse. Here are some notes/thoughts: It is tough when you have nothing to distract you. You need those honking sounds, the sounds […]

Covidiot + Indiot = Covindiot

Many of you must have received this. A wordplay on Covid and Idiot. Let me just add another word to your vocab: Indiot noun ind·i·ot A stupid person of Indian origin who does things only idiot Indians would do. ‘Don’t burst crackers in your hand, you indiot!‘ A stupid Indian person who doesn’t follow rules, […]

Work From Home Guidelines from a Non-Expert

Categories: Experiences, Observations

Oh, yeah. Oooh, ahhh, that’s how it always starts. Then later there’s running and screaming. Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park – The Lost World Fiction has become a reality. Who would have thought that it would happen so suddenly? But it is not an alien attack, or Dinosaurs roaming around, or an asteroid coming (It is […]

2020 will be full of fireworks

Categories: Uncategorized

Back in 2002, when I was still in school, 2020 seemed like a far fetched affair. There was some discussion originating from Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam’s mind about 2020 would be The Year. It felt like it would be a time when the World would have totally changed. Technology would have made leaps and bounds. […]

Year 2019 End Blog Post

Categories: Year End Blog Post

So, the fastest year of life is over in a jiffy. I went to Goa in Jan 2018 and it feels like it was just a few weeks ago. That’s how fast the last 2 years have gone by. There were many learnings this year work-wise. I have now completed more than a decade of […]

Thinking Fast and Slow.

Categories: Uncategorized

Currently, I am reading the book Thinking Fast and Slow and as of now, it is amazing. But, this is not about the book, I just wanted to use the title. Alright, I will admit that I have been slow this time. Probably not paying too much attention to news/Twitter has made me so. But […]

Selfie with Foreigners

Categories: Observations

If you are a tourist in India and if you happen to be White (you could very well be a very fair-skinned Indian), then you would surely have been stopped anywhere and would have been asked for a Selfie. This would have generally been a polite request asked with such humbleness and doe-eyed facial expression […]

The New Indian Adhesive

Categories: Experiences, Tech

It’s ISRO obviously. What else could unite us all at 2 AM in the morning? It used to be Cricket only. Sometimes movies. But from September 7, 2019, ISRO is the next Indian adhesive, I think! Well, Chandrayaan 2 is a partial success after all. It reached pretty far accurately, even became the first Indian […]

Correcting Selflessness

“So, I shouldn’t voluntarily donate blood at all from next time, right? Isn’t that what it is supposed to mean?” Me That was my stern reaction when I was told that the hospital doesn’t take blood from an external blood bank. I was indeed livid while the person in front of me kept a straight […]

So I recently watched: Avengers Endgame

Categories: Movie Review

Goosebumps! Rarely it happens that I am this excited to watch a movie. But the hype was spilling over the brim and the wait had become way too much longer. I watched the movie on Tuesday after it had already earned billions of dollars at the BO. And then when you hear, the once dreaded […]

Bookstores of Bangalore

Categories: Experiences

Did I tell you, I always wanted to own a Stationary Shop which also sold books? I have always wanted to read more and more books. But like everyone else, I end up reading less and less. There are some phases when I do read 2-3 books in very less time. But those times come […]

Watch your Watch

Categories: Observations, Opinions

Let’s start with my self. If I don’t reach somewhere I am needed or I want to be on time or at least 5 minutes before, my internal system go for a toss. Unless it is totally out of my control like a traffic jam happening 5 KMs ahead, I don’t get late. In fact, […]

Humbleness isn’t Hard

Categories: Observations, Opinions

Millennials in India must be familiar with Roadies, the MTV Reality Show in which one has to go through a brutal and rigorous interview process to enter the contest. Needless to say, the show isn’t in sync with my point of view. I recently came across this Twitter thread by someone who faced a brutal […]
