Why I will never be able to fathom #BhagatSingh?

Today all the wings, the #RightWing, the #LeftWing will try to claim #BhagatSingh. They need to be told that he belonged to no wing. He was an atheist, he was a communist (the righteous one and not the kind that move around in our times), and he was someone who sacrificed his life smiling, not like the babas who claim impotence at the sight of jail or who get in a salwar at the sight

The waltz of death is free and running open

Dear Bihar, Can you hear those sounds? Don’t worry the guns are still biting the dust, but the sound of those firecrackers are surely an indication of the things to come. I am at loss of words, last year you had that one power of choosing the right ballot and you landed up choosing the wrong bullet. What have you guys done? Did you see those thirteen hundred SUV’s zip past the dusty terrains of

Udta Punjab – ALL HYPE AND NO SHOW

Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Daljit & Satish Kaushik. Produced by: Alt Ent & Phantom Directed by: Abhishek Chaubey. First take: Did the publicity help the film? Yes! It did. Morning shows for an anurag kashyap film was housefull. Journalists made a beeline outside, waiting for the feedback. Police was called in to manage any threat. The problem of course was the threat inside the cinema halls. The threat called ‘mediocrity’. Story:

Virat Kohli, the CEO

Virat Kohli is probably enjoying a kind of form now that even if he tries, and edges one to the keeper, the ball will fly over him. And let’s just not limit it to his batting. He is fielding tremendously and just when you think India miss an idea or two because the captain is the wicketkeeper far flung from the running in pace bowlers, here is Kohli at mid-off, chatting, ideating and encouraging the

Why I will keep watching the IPL year after year

There is a lot of talk around office and elsewhere amongst pals as to how the interest in IPL is waning. How people are now not that excited as the “India Ka Tyohaar” eighth edition has begun. There is an overdose of cricket and there is little quality in watching bowlers being smacked in batting friendly wickets and smaller grounds. The number of blogs and comments that are anti-IPL have become a tad too much

Statistically Also Sachin Is Far Ahead If Compared To Any Virat

Now that 200 has been breached thrice, all three times by an Indian batsmen, I have a simple question. Was Rohit Sharma’s 200 greeted with the same aplomb as Sachin’s? A definite answer is no. And that is why Sachin Tendulkar’s numbers, especially those which came pre 2003 make them so special that no newbie, no matter who he is, can come closer to the master class. Here are 5 reasons, simple ones why Sachin’s

Review: Manjhi, the Mountain man: Nawaz shines in an otherwise bland docudrama

Director: Ketan Mehta Stars: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte, Ashutosh Acharya I had huge expectations from a film based on the premise of a lower caste Bihari in the India’s of 60’s takes on himself to bring down a mountain. It was a stellar idea for a film. The bigger thing was it also a fact and not part of fictional folklore. What was needed was amazing treatment but that is where I felt Manjhi, the Mountain

A rebuttal to a daughter-in-law from a son and a husband

I scrolled through this piece on AkkarBakkar some 10 days back. I felt angry as to how the Internet, something that was supposed to give a life beyond saas bahu bitching, was falling prey to it. I wanted to rebut it then but I did not care much. Today though is a different day. I see my wife sharing this piece on her Facebook profile. This makes me rebut it because tomorrow my sister might
