Pleading for Justice for Yash and Prince

On Sunday, June 7 2015, I got a call from my Chachi (Aunt) at 6:53 PM. She was crying on the phone and informed me that my brother (Yash Nandal, resident of I-1/66, Budh Vihar, Phase – I, Delhi -86) drowned in the Khera Canal, Sector-16, Rohini. I saw her crying profusely when I reached the Khera canal. Then one of the three guys (Shahrukh) came to me and told me that on their way along

आशु के आंसू, सोशल मीडिया की हंसी

आशुतोष जी रो रहे है। सोशल मीडिया हंस रहा है। आंसू और मुस्कान के इस सार्वजनिक समारोह की सबसे उल्लेखनीय बात यही है कि लोग अब किसी भी बात को गंभीरता से लेने को तैयार नहीं हैं। ना अविरल आंसुओ को और ना ही सार्वजनिक माफी को। संवेदनाएं इतनी कुंद हो चुकी है कि गजेंद्र की मौत जैसी ख़बरों की अहमियत भी अल्पकालिक तमाशे से ज्यादा कुछ नहीं है। तमाशा तंत्र ने ही गजेंद्र की

Our Polluted Motherland! Government ko sanmati de Bhagwan!

Now the official National Air Quality Index has been launched for 10 cities of India. It’s really scary! Earlier we merrily presumed the US Embassy Data on air pollution to be a neo-colonial satire! We in Dwarka sub-city of Delhi top the AQI in the Capital city! We inhale 5 times worse the normal air! Our Right to life has been very seriously compromised! We don’t see any active steps from the Delhi Government or

Why Chetan Bhagat’s advice to AAP is completely misplaced

The birthing and teething of AAP has been happening in the public domain unlike ever before in India! The GOP i.e. INC of course happened in a somewhat similar fashion during an authoritarian colonial regime but with a devoted and consensual nursery of stakeholder publics!

Lets educate our Men first

Being a resident of Delhi for 25 years I can easily conclude the following: You wear a nice fitted top and jeans, 90% of the men will stare at you. On the other hand if you are fully clad in a salwar kameez dupatta, less than 10% of them will hardly give you a second glance. Funny isn’t it. Sad, but true story. And many women I spoke to agreed to my observation. And since
