5 Points to Someone

The film is out. And all the buildup done by the producers and the actors, pre-release, was not just a hype. I saw it. And I was bowled over. Everything seems real. And as my friend said, everyone who has ever stayed in a hostel, tries to fit himself into the characters. Maybe the essence of reality

Wishes for this New Year

2010…its here!! With a promise of beginning our lives, afresh. For many, its just another first day of the year. But for some, its and excuse to rejoice, occasion for party and day for new resolutions. People have celebrated all night, and with a spinning head and dizzy mind, have resolved many things. But do

An Award for Terrorism

The high court is of the stand that the state has to compensate for illegal detention for petty theft. The amount being thought upon by the court is 5000 rs per day. Now an ugly thought creeps up my mind. Take ‘our’ kasab. He now claims to have been held in custody, 10 days before
