    My Grunts, Growls, Hisses, Chuffs, Wails and Mews. That is all the voices a Snow Leopard can produce.

A Tale of Multiple Political Parties – The Indian Elections of 2014


It was the best of times, it was the worst of time! - everyone was winning, everyone was losing  The 2014 Lok Sabha Election, or for the people of Bombay and Bangalore the most epic reality show in the history of reality shows (I am pretty sure they were trying to send votes via SMS). The … Continue reading

Ma, Mati, Manush, Majority: Trinamool Congress in 2014


Trisha analyses the Trinamool Congress and Mamata Banerjee in particular in this election special guest blog. Why Didi? I don’t know. I am guessing it is because of the Bong connection or something. Here is Tee in her “Politic-ky” avatar! Mamata Banerjee is something of a black sheep of Indian politics. A diminutive figure, enrobed … Continue reading

Bingeing in Baramati


Last week I had a chance to visit Four Season’s beautiful Vineyard in Baramati, near Pune….which is in Maharashtra if you are geographically challenged. Despite climatic constraints, that region of India is apparently suitable for viticulture. And since the produce of the aforementioned activity is a major ingredient of any wine, it is but natural … Continue reading

The Valentine’s Day Post


It is that time of the year again. When red rules supreme…..errr….not communism. And also it is time for my yearly post on the day designated to love *insert a valentine’s day + 9 months = children’s day reference here*. I am seriously confused this time. Valentine’s Day is a day when you are supposed … Continue reading

What would Rahul Gandhi say?


I found this awesome site called “Ask Rahul Anything!” Here is the link http://www.engagedino.com/askrg and you might want to come out of the rock you have been living under. So, here is my very own interview with the Clown Prince of Congress. I took the screenshots and……I hope I am not arrested for this.

Why should I write?


I have been away from the blogging scene for some time now. Each time someone asks, I give an excuse. But they are just excuses, nothing more. Frankly I should only blame my lethargy and the lack of will to sit down and type a few words. Sometimes my head is full of ideas. Some … Continue reading

A Diwali Diatribe


The morning after the Diwali revelry brings one of the worst hangovers thanks to the heady cocktail of noxious fumes and a plethora of guests. A long time a ago, in a previous age and time, I used to look forward to Diwali – deafening noise, lit sky, toy guns that literally packed a bang, … Continue reading

In Conversation with Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta


I arrived about an hour in advance for my lunch date with the two Sahara Force India drivers. If it hadn’t been for the Metro line construction along the Ring Road, I might have reached earlier. About a week ago I received a call asking me if I was free on the 21st of October around lunchtime, … Continue reading

A Night with Mallu Porn


Who am I? I am you. Maybe I am most of you. Maybe I am none of you. For the universe I am a microscopic blimp on the face of time, but that is for the philosophers to philosophize and I am certainly not one. For you I am the mind’s curiosity. I am the … Continue reading

Romancing the Mountains


A guest post I wrote for Auntius Purbus’s blog, which is world famous in India. Dear Mystic Vixen, I pen down this letter as I watch the sun go down behind the snow clad peaks of Trimurti. What wonders I have seen and experienced in this region, you would scarcely believe. The beauty of the … Continue reading

The Death of a Language


A few days ago while I was filling a form in a bank, a woman came to me asking for help to “phill a pharam”. She seemed a nice lady and I was not going to judge her based on her language skills or rather lack of it. But the address she gave me was … Continue reading

Shardul


Venkatesh was an introvert and hardly talked to anyone. No he wasn’t a sociopath, neither was he suffering from depression….he just liked the peace that solace gave him. Far from the maddening crowd if you will. This ensured that his social circle was nothing to brag about. He lived alone in a large farmhouse in … Continue reading

Love Shove and all that Shit


Disclaimer: I am not drunk, neither am I under the influence of any drugs or chemicals. No one has threatened me to write this post and aliens have not brainwashed me. I am not delirious and am not suffering from any known mental illness (but I could be suffering from one that has not been … Continue reading

An Unfinished Poem


It makes no sense and I have no idea why I wrote this -  We walk alone,        in this stage of life. The sacred truth,       is quintessentially a strife.   What truth I seek,       in forgone acquaintances. The essence of love,       or its subtle … Continue reading

Twitter Highlights of 2012


If 2011 was the year of the Protesters, 2012 was ruled by the Mayans. But still, 2012 was an interesting year despite the fact that there was a sword of doomsday hanging over our heads. I know I am a bit late, but now I can blame other things besides my lethargy. Yes, I joined … Continue reading
