It Is Complicated! A Real Status or a Fad

Ankush Kumar in his inimitable humorous style writes on a broken heart and what all one does to sew it up, only to fail. Another must read. I am heartbroken. Oh!

The only thing that a full bar of cocoa does is it increases your weight (if you don’t work out that is), it increases the nonsensical ‘dishum dishum’ advertisements on television and fills the coffers of toothpaste making companies. If the chocolate experiment fails, one thing that keeps the pain going is random updates on

Do we truly see the good in something or someone? Are we natural critics, cynics or optimists? Do we often think of what might be wrong with someone or something before we

Sports Terrorism

Be Thankful There Aren’t More Bostons

The Boston Marathon blasts have taken many by surprise, but what one should marvel at is the fact that few sports events have been hit, says Jaideep Ghosh Terrorism in sports isn’t as new as many are making it out to be. The 1972 Munich Olympics, which saw the Israeli contingent being decimated after being taken hostage, sowed the seeds of violence in sport. What is dismaying is that some of our NewGen have either forgotten, or are completely ignorant of, this episode. And the worst thing you can do with terrorism or war is to forget. So when the

5 Reasons Why You Can’t Write-Off Sehwag

Geoffrey Boycott, the legendary former England opener has opined that we might have seen the last of Virender Sehwag. Here are five reasons why we think he is wrong. Sehwag has been written off many times previously but he has always come back stronger.
