• A Snow Leopard’s Ramblings

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

For the Left Wing, the Right Wing and the silent majority of India

From what I see on my Facebook timeline, we are tolerant as long as the other person speaks what we want to hear. If not, then you are either a Sickular or a Chhaddi wala Sanghi. Both sides claim that theirs is the true path. Both sides share well edited videos, biased articles and well … Continue reading


Pompous Political Potpourri

The Delhi Election has been one of the most followed event in India in the last few months. With Congress already out of the equation and BJP hounded by saffron demons. The nation was looking at AAP to see if the new party had any potential.

The Year That Was

2014 was a strange year in more ways than one. Indian Politics, Azam Khan, Rahul Gandhi, Kim Kardashian, Modi, Nicki Minaj, Mamata Banerjee, Arvind Kejriwal, Baba Rampal, Indian Elections, Muffler Man….they all ensured that it was fun and exciting.

One Hashtag to Save the World

In continuation to a post I had written on March 2012, LINK for Purba Ray’s blog, I write this post after weeks of deliberation. A strange new fad had gripped the world about 15 days ago. Suddenly, everyone one was dumping ice cold water on themselves, recording it and then challenging others to do likewise. … Continue reading

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
