An Insight into the minds of Pakistani hockey players

Sporting encounters between India & Pakistan are the epitome of fierce rivalry. Over-the-top & exaggerated celebrations by the winning team are very common. But the ‘celebrations’ carried out by Pakistan hockey team after the semifinals match against India in Champions Trophy held recently crossed all the limits of exuberation and decency. Spirit of sports was sacrificed at the altar of a ‘middle-finger’. Pakistan hockey team thereafter is in the eye of a storm and has

A license to kill

It took 13 long years to nail the culprit and the justice to be delivered and only couple of hours for High Court to free the convicted actor. The wheel has been set in motion again and Salman is back into the lap of luxuries and stardom.

I don’t blame the naysayers in this case as their perception was based on the despicable statements and lack of remorse by the rapist and his lawyers, which is really blood boiling when you watch it. But that apart, the film actually holds a mirror to the society. It

#BetterDemocracy: Polls 2015: Can Delhi voters get it right?

When Delhi went to the polls 13 months ago, the scenario was exuberant. There was an urgent need for change; a mini revolution was brewing. People, fed up with a corrupt and arrogant government, were looking for an alternative and Arvind Kejriwal arrived at the right time the right place.
