The best movies you could watch during this lockdown

Kavi (my wife) & I have a liking for mystery, thriller, and horror movies. We have searched for “best thriller movies” or similar at least over a hundred times. Our routine goes like this: We google a list of movies and zero in on one after reading its synopsis. Then, we search for it on…

My little brother Bablu

My brother and I have been together for 22 years now, and the fact is, excepting minor misunderstandings or disagreements, we have hardly fought. Now why I had to state this fact, I do not know. Does this have any semblance to my story below? Not necessarily. My younger brother, Maheshwaran aka Bablu as we…

If old habits die hard, let’s cultivate good ones.

2017 has definitely been a productive cricket season both individually and for the Adamstown Cricket Club (ACC) Team-2. The start was not smooth, the team had lost all 3 of its opening matches. To recover from the setback, finish second in the table and being promoted is quite an achievement. I faltered in the first…

My 100th blog of this month!

Warning! You are driven by the sumptuousness of the title This is how I will use clickbait and give an irrelevant title to my article and entice you into reading an absolutely useless piece of crap that has nothing useful to offer, like this very sentence.

For starters, a meme is an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by Internet users, often with slight variations. It is pronounced meem and not mey-mey, so familiarize yourself with the correct usage before we dive deeper. The word meme was coined by Richard Dawkins…

Do you know you have been a curator all your life?

When I sat down to write an article about “curated self”, little did I know about the topic. When dissected, the term obviously refers to ‘self’ and relates to something about caretaking, a custodian or a conservator. I would know about curation from the cricketing term “curator”, a person in charge of deciding, preparing, maintaining…

Learn early, learn best.

During high school, some of my friends had come to play cricket in an adjacent field. I don’t remember much but one of the balls my friend hit landed on the roof of a house that was under construction then. I walked up the stairs and picked the ball, when my neighbor shouted, “get down…

Ireland – My Johari window

I know two friends. One, Peter the pampered and other, Steve the sturdy. While Peter, as his tag-line calls, was the coddled, happy-go-lucky kind, Steve, on the other hand, is measured. Peter didn’t know the ABC of cooking, all he knew was some pre- and post-cooking skills including cutting vegetables and washing utensils. But Steve,…

Selfie – boon or bane?
