Simple Guide for a Tourist UK Visa

Simple Guide for a Tourist UK Visa

After months of planning and speculation, I will finally embark upon the very first of my international escapades in June 2014; I’m scheduled to fly out from Mumbai, India on the 3rd of June, to begin what I’m sure will be my greatest experience as a Nomad till date. I will be traveling through the United Kingdom including London, Birmingham, ... Read More »

Frapp – Student Discounts On the Go!

Frapp – Student Discounts On the Go!

My life as a student was always a case of trying (and often failing) to make ends meet. Life was an endless struggle between choosing to travel by auto-rickshaw or grabbing a drink at the local pub with the best Happy Hour deals. There were so many times when I wished brands would have an alternate pricing method purely for ... Read More »

3 Exotic Summer Destinations in India

3 Exotic Summer Destinations in India

We’ve had a decent winter this time round – chilly, breezy, even rained on a couple of occasions; for a country used to soaring temperatures, moderate climate like this is a bit of a novelty. As we march through April though, the sun is beginning to recover some of its lost ferocity and depending upon where you live, you will ... Read More »

Is David In Fact, Manchester United’s Goliath?

Is David In Fact, Manchester United’s Goliath?

When I first started watching football, the only league comprehensively covered in my country was the fabled English Premier League – in that era, it wasn’t too difficult to have one look at the Red Devils of Manchester play and fall in love instantaneously with the likes of Ryan Giggs and David Beckham terrorizing opposition full backs on the wings ...

An Emotion Called Group Therapy – Part 1

An Emotion Called Group Therapy – Part 1

Rohan Das & I had been waiting for November 2013 eagerly, ever since the British EDM giants Above & Beyond announced their Group Therapy India Tour earlier this year. Above & Beyond’s love affair with India goes back a long long way in time. That the trio love our country and it’s bizarre electronic scene, is significantly emphasized by their ... Read More »

6 Things That Spoiled Titanic for Me

6 Things That Spoiled Titanic for Me

I’ve grown up a romanticist; much to the dismay of liberal, yet conventional parents and the ridicule of a boisterous bunch of friends. But fascination with expression of thought, art and nature came to me from a very young age. Like most people my generation, I watched the classic love story of Jack Dawson & Rose DeWitt Bukater (yes, that ... Read More »

The Legend of Sachin Tendulkar

The Legend of Sachin Tendulkar

I was 12 years old at the time. India was facing Pakistan in an irrelevant Group Stage game of the Cricket World Cup (that’s not true, matches with Pakistan are never really irrelevant). Like most Indian kids from the 1990s, I was a cricket fanatic – at least then. Pakistan had batted first and amassed a challenging score of 273 ... Read More »

The HASHTAG Story

The HASHTAG Story

Each time a new trend comes along, the world is divided into 3 parties – one that follows it frantically, one that opposes it fanatically and rolls their eyes at the entire thing and one that are altogether indifferent. It has been a while since facebook started supporting ‘hashtags’ for grouping posts together with the use of a placeholder. A ... Read More »

The Kaamwaali ‘Bhai’ – The Modern Day Maid

The Kaamwaali ‘Bhai’ – The Modern Day Maid

A modern-day parody unfolds in my house every morning. It is believed that every forest has, but one king; it seems mine has two – not my dad or my mom, but the two maids that run my house and operate for a period of 3 hours combined. Utter pandemonium breaks loose every morning beginning from 9 AM. I’m still ... Read More »

Rush – A Rivalry or Two Contrasting Ways of Life?

Rush – A Rivalry or Two Contrasting Ways of Life?

This weekend, I had the privilege & opportunity to watch the much acclaimed sports drama film based on one of, if not the biggest Formula One rivalry, between celebrated drivers James Hunt & Niki Lauda . My intimacy to Formula One is restricted to championing the talented Finnish driver – Kimi Raikkonen , fondly known as the Iceman. Much of ... Read More »
