नोटबंदी किसी बेवकूफी से कम नहीं!

नोटबंदी को आज एक साल हो गया है। मानो कल ही की बात हो। पिताजी का स्कूटर थामे मै एक बैंक से दुसरे बैंक के चक्कर काट रहा था इसी उम्मीद मे की कुछ पैसे मिल जाएँ जिससे की दादी अपने दवाई खरीद सके, दूधवाले को पैसे मिल सके और कामवाली को समय पर तंखा मिल सके। मेरी हालत फिर भी देश के कई मज़दूर, फलवाले और किसानों से बेहतर है। प्रधान मंत्री मोदी के 8

Can India once again become the education hub of the world?

In ancient times, India boasted of having one of, if not the best university of the world Nalanda. In 1200 CE, along with Takshila and Vikramshila, India occupied the pinnacle of learning in the ancient world. Students from as far as Persia and Turkey in the Middle East and Japan and Korea in Central Asia were its students. It housed close to 10,000 students and about 2,000 teachers. Its staff included the likes of Aryabhatta,

एक किताब जिसे आप सबने बहुत प्यार दिया

शहर के उदास मंजर के बीच एक खुशखबरी ये भी है कि आपने मीडिया की जिस किताब को बिना मीडिया-महंतों के अच्छा-अच्छा कहे जाने का इंतजार किए, लोकार्पण और पीआर राइटिंग से प्रभावित हुए बिना सराहा, लगातार अपनी प्रतिक्रिया दीं और दोस्ती-यारी में मुफ्त की कॉपी की उम्मीद किए बिना खरीदकर पढ़ना पसंद किया..इन्डस्ट्री के किसी बड़े चेहरे ने न तो इसकी भूमिका लिखी और न ही भारी-भरकम मीडिया संस्थान की रिव्यू पंक्तियों को मार्केटिंग

Revealing Tagore the Painter on His 154th Birthday

We all are aware of the great literary figure Rabindra Tagore. Yes, he was the first Indian to win the Nobel Prize for Literature and his composed verse ‘Jana Gana Mana’ was adopted as the country’s national anthem. Though known to the world as renowned poet, versatility was his middle name. He was a poet, novelist, playwright, philosopher, social reformer, musician and also an artist. Egged by an insatiable urge for creativity, Tagore took up

Playing it my way – Review: The book could had been much more

Yes the review is very late, but that is mostly because I didn’t actually read the book. I heard the audiobook, which was released recently. Now Sachin Tendulkar has probably been the best batsman to have ever played the game. It had been my utmost pleasure to follow his game very closely, and more or less his public life had been an open book by virtue of being on the field of cricket or in

Unbreakable: Mary Kom’s autobiography is an amazing ride into her life

It was surprising for me to pick up Mary Kom’s autobiography “Unbreakable” so late because I don’t remember the last autobiography of a big Sportstar that I know of and missed. I ordered after a Facebook post from a known journalist said that it’s much better than the Priyanka Chopra starrer film and to be frank I wasn’t surprised about his comments. It was always known that Mary Kom’s initial life was a hell lot

Can you take a day off to read?

Books are loved all over. Trilogies are made into movies. Epic fantasy series spawn a multitude of fan fictions and command a enviable following. Poems are memorized and recited at social gatherings. Short stories, however, are largely ignored. But that is, by no means, proof that they are of any “lesser” literary value. In fact, the well-written short stories are as insightful, scary, romantic and moving as their other literary cousins. Here are 42 short stories (thanks

What Inspired Me To Write Flames Of Paradise

If I look back down the memory lane, and try to find the answer to the question, what really inspired me to write my first book Flames Of Paradise, I will probably come up with just one answer. Voraciously reading all those brilliant classics written by writers like Jane Austen, D.H Lawrence in English and novels and stories written by writers like Sharatchandra, Amrita Pritam, Shivani and finally my own mother, Dr. Usha Kiran Khan.
