Can your car be a polluting agent? In Delhi, unfortunately its true

http://flyingsquidstudios.com/files/skeletor_109.html If anybody were to undertake a ‘Delhi Darshan’, apart from witnessing the fantastic monuments and scenic spots one would inevitably be greeted by the ominous ‘Pradushit Vaayu’ (PV) also known as ‘Air Pollution’. PV hits a record high every winter. Dangerously though, PV isn’t restricted to outdoor air. The confines of your home, office and even your car are not without its own concoction of PV. Be it the humble Maruti 800 or the latest

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

मंत्रालय और मूत्रालय और जहाँ सोच वहीँ शौच

समान ध्वनि वाले दो शब्द आमतौर पर समानार्थी नहीं होते। लेकिन अगर आप थोड़ी कोशिश करें तो आप उन्हे एक जैसे अर्थ वाला बना सकते हैं। मोदी सरकार के वरिष्ठ मंत्री नितिन गडकरी ने यही किया। नतीजा ये हुआ है कि देश की जनता मंत्रालय और मूत्रालय को लगभग एक मानने लगी है। दोनो कुछ मामले में एक जैसे हैं, भी। मंत्रालय हो या मूत्रालय तलबगार को जल्दी से जल्दी अंदर दाखिल होने की बेचैनी

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

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
