Khelega India, Jeetega India

Football is the second most loved sport in India after cricket. A rich game like football has an equally rich history. It was quite shocking to know that the game, that was and is still a favorite pastime of mine, wasn’t discovered by Indians but brought to India by British soldiers in the mid-19th century. It was introduced properly as a modern day sport in the country by Nagendra Prasad Sarbhadhikari (NPS), a passionate Indian

एक बम की अभिलाषा: फीट भगत सिंह

यह पंडित जी का फैसला था की असेंबली में बम फेंकने भगत नहीं जायेगा. और झुंझलाये हुए सुखदेव को समझ नहीं आ रहा था की दल का सबसे बेहतर प्रवक्ता कैसे और क्यों नहीं जायेगा. उसने भगत पर मोहब्बत का इलज़ाम लगाया पर भगत ने मोहब्बत के इलज़ाम को झूठा ठहराया. पर भगत सुखदेव की झुंझलाहट को समझ रहा था और कहीं जनता था की सुखदेव जायज़ बात कर रहा है. इसलिए पंडित जी के

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

To ensure I get updates regarding blood donation, I signed up to receive notifications from BloodConnect, a wonderful organization working towards addressing blood shortage in India. Today I again got an opportunity to donate to a blood cancer patient. A BloodConnect official

Yatra of AZADI!

When I first heard Kanhaiyas speech post his return from jail, I was awestruck by his speech making styles, his unmatched sarcasm and his clarity of thoughts as a youth (not all will agree). I say this, as this is a first, in my times where a speech is made with utmost grit and without a paper in hand or a teleprompter or dramatics. It isn’t surprising that his fiery entry into the arena from

Why Sex Has Become The Only Strong Attraction

Santosh Desai, who writes the column City City Bang Bang for the Times of India, is one of the very few of what I would call the Thinking Man’s Journalist. When most other news articles across various media are filled with details and opinions, his are the rare exceptions, filled with an honest and unbiased analysis of the issue at hand. In  TOI, he wrote about the whole furore over Dr Harsh Vardhan’s comment on

A letter from Virat’s “Late father” to his coach and the Indian Fan

HE WILL have to learn, I know, that all cricket fans are not just; all cricket fans are not true. But teach him also that for every scoundrel there is a genuine hero worth emulating; that for every selfish manipulator, there is a dedicated follower. Teach him that for every critic there is a friend. It will take time, I know; but teach him, if you can, that the respect earned the hard way is
