The Testaments and many lessons it carries

My lessons derived from The Testaments deeply entrenched in the fear of not just imagining the kind of world depicted in the book but the fault lines of our societies, when magnified may become detrimental to women.

1Q84: A Book Review

1Q84 is a typical culmination of Murakamian writings over the years. Someone who has read Murakami extensively will find some recurring themes ranging from domestic violence, runaways, melancholy followed by a profound loss, parochialism & fanaticism of some religious sects, to stranger events taking place in tandem. Those who take great delight in magical realism,Continue reading “1Q84: A Book Review”


Since the pandemic ravaged the world, there has been a persistent reckoning with the fact that the clock is ticking, if left unaddressed will lead to a catastrophe, subsuming the gargantuan axioms of development. Our health infrastructure crumbled, world cooperation waned, livelihoods were battered, poverty rampaged and everybody rued at the drop of the hat.Continue reading “IN DALLIANCE WITH NATURE”

This book is set around an idea of motherhood which will irritate an average Indian mother. The book evolves with the presentContinue reading “BURNT SUGAR”

A Year of New Normals

The interesting thing about normalcy is that it isn’t normal Many commentators have called this year a complete annus horribilus, which isn’t an exaggeration. Normalcy became a farce, a virus traversed from east to the west, from oceans to poles, which ravaged life and led to so many new normals. Masks what an awful thing,Continue reading “A Year of New Normals”

My Young Mind

I am not a child anymore, I hear them say. I am young so I need a drink to make sense of  things I can’t decipher otherwise. I need to go along, no more questions, as grownups are supposed to know everything. My young mind ought to be full of aspirations and I must constantlyContinue reading “My Young Mind”


Why does one follow someone? Personality, ideas, beliefs, you relate often! But the bigger picture is about the solemn purpose, the greater cause for which the personality finds an existence & is with all the might following the way you think you must trudge on, contributing every bit every second to bring realization to theContinue reading “CAN’T BE A BLIND FOLLOWER, I’D RATHER BE A BELIEVER THAT WE DESERVE BETTER!”

The Great Hunger Crisis

Among all the insecurities India faces Food insecurity is critical & needs to be dealt with the same alacrity as the one with Chinese intrusion For developing countries among many crises, humanitarian crisis is abject and needs a positive response from the state. It’s palatable that lockdown has added to the woes of the alreadyContinue reading “The Great Hunger Crisis”


With right wing being reduced to fascists and left wing to as proponents of violent revolution& self accepted elites, is there a space left to call out moral wrongfulness & promote ethical principles in the first place? We made some progressive changes in our social customs by adopting the western model, some bore fruit toContinue reading “CANCEL CULTURE; IS IT STIFLING DISSENT & THUS DEBATE?”


The talk of unity in diversity is discursive if we fail to strive for the unity in inclusivity To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, governments don’t acquire power with the help of majority, but with a majority that participates. In Indian context majority is 80% & even if 40% participates they are to overshadow the electoral outputsContinue reading “AN IDEA OF INDIA FOR ALL”


‘’ From Ayodhya to Kashmir, diversity gives a clarion call and the mockery of unity has the last laugh’’ August 5, 2020 a day which will become the most important & historic, not for Hindutva propounders or Sangh parivar but also for India as a whole, maybe between August 15 & January 26, this dayContinue reading “IN A PARALLEL UNIVERSE”

Pandemic, Politics&People

‘Soon after the pandemic ravaged, paradigm shifts became a new normal from the mode of governance in some countries to the not so wanted banality of power play in India by ordinances or shuffling chairs” To paraphrase Gandhiji he believed he was in politics to serve people,to ameliorate dialogue between the poles to come toContinue reading “Pandemic, Politics&People”

Years in the making

So I turned 21 today, when the clock struck 12 my heart beat was normal, seemed like any other day with a date more frequently known as we mention date of birth in many areas, so it’s unlikely that one forgets her birthday; what’s so special about birthdays? Every year they come over & againContinue reading “Years in the making”

Time For Nature

With time,our priorities change, from pre cambrian era of nothingness to the industrial era of using nature’s bounty to serve our yearnings of development and now a newer reality of virtuality where machines are getting smarter than the ideas which formed the basis to create them, we have come a long way. From the hindsight,Continue reading “Time For Nature”
