Media Vs Legislature …both need introspection

March 25, 2017

The Press is perspiring and seething with anger after K.B. Koliwad, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, announced the formation of a House Committee to suggest measures to monitor and regulate the functioning of Media in Karnataka. This decision was taken during the Budget Session after a four-hour discussion! Yes, instead of discussing the Budget,…

The Lone Movie Wolf

March 11, 2017

I am an extremely sociable person…But I also like to do certain things alone, especially watching movies. This solo movie watching, it seems, is “abnormal” behaviour as a friend observed. He is not the first. He will not be the last, for people find ‘solo-activists’ weird. When I lived in Chennai, my landlord once mockingly…

Musings on Student Unions

March 4, 2017

The student protests these days are getting more frivolous by the day and so is the media that seems obsessed with local Delhi politics and projecting it like it is of national importance. Now what is so special about students of Delhi University that we need to be kept updated about their every tribulation. The…

A report on the Night of Shiva

February 25, 2017

I have always wondered what happens on Shivaratri…do people actually pray at temples all night long? Do people fast? Do people feel a sense of spirituality? And are the whispers that some people sit around playing cards and getting high true? Also what happens in our city on the night of Shiva? Is it crowded?…

A Metrosexual Adventure

February 16, 2017

I go to a barber shop called ‘Big Boss’ right behind my office in Bannimantap. And they do a pretty good job of keeping me pretty, or at least I thought so… until I visited a local fancy hotel’s in-house barber shop or as we ‘neo-sophisticated’ Mysureans call ‘Saaay LON.’ As I walked in, there…

Even Foreign Students Don’t Fear Indian Laws Or Its Lawmen!

February 11, 2017

Yesterday the newspapers reported two incidents about students, both quite disturbing. One was foreign, the other domestic. And shockingly in both cases the students showed no fear for the Law or the Police. First the foreign students: On Thursday, Florence, a 24-year-old woman from Uganda studying in Bengaluru, was murdered. Police Inspector Anjan Kumar rushed…

Netas lusting after  Lalitha !

January 28, 2017

Two years ago out of the blue our then Tourism Minister R.V. Deshpande told the Karnataka Legislative Assembly that his Ministry would look into various violations committed by ITDC (India Tourism Development Corporation) and terminate the lease signed in 1973 with regard to Lalitha Mahal Palace Hotel. What were these violations? It seems one of…

Kaala Mann & Kaala Dhann

December 10, 2016

While our Prime Minister is telling us his Mann Ki Baat…people are busy with Money Ki Baat. And why not, we love money. We have always loved money. And when it comes to money or benefit, the saying “means justify the end” is meaningless. We only care about the end. That is why we see…

Demonetisation & Hero Worshipping

December 3, 2016

The recent demonetisation has been confusing…we have assumed that war against currency is war against black money. Money or cash constantly changes colour from black to white. It is ok as long as it is circulating within the economy, but money truly becomes black and harmful when non-tax paid cash is hoarded and not circulated…

A train-ride to remember

November 26, 2016

Six years ago I entered the chaotic Chennai Central Station to board the Shatabdi Express to Mysuru. Up ahead at the entrance to my bogie I saw people bending down to touch someone’s feet and many standing with reverence reserved for Godmen or politicians. I squeezed myself through the small mob and got into my…
