Blame the Alcohol

BMW — you need to read this. And learn. I have two really, really close friends. You know, the kind with whom you can bare it all. Not the let-go-of-clothes kind of bare. Although there might have been some accidental instances of skin-show on an odd occasion or two.

The Sound of Music!

This was a couple of years back. I had a Jaguar F-Type for a week. It wasn’t the drunkard 500-and-few horsepower one. This was the substantially more docile and considerably less-drunk model — the one which is unimpressively called P300.  The F-Type is offered with three power outputs to choose from: 300bhp (from a 2-litre,… Continue reading →

My First Time

I am a fully grown, middle-aged man. Back then, I wouldn’t have been any more than — I don’t know — four feet tall, maybe. School was mostly about spending time with friends, playing football and being punished collectively. Standing in the middle of the open amphitheatre — getting roasted in the intense heat —… Continue reading →

The Seesaw of Stupidity

I don’t often talk publicly about politics, politicians or the dramas unfolding around them. It’s not because I don’t have solid views or don’t like a debate, but it’s because I like my peace of mind and if you go verbal on social about any such issues, there’s polarity (which is great), constant trolling (which… Continue reading →

The Supercar, The Fart & You

If you’re a motoring devotee, staying in a proper metropolitan city has some advantages. The more exclusive brands — Merc, BMW, Audi, Jag etc — don’t seem all that exclusive, and you can find the rich-and-famous type coming out flashing their Ferraris, Lambos and Porsches at night.

Happy & Sad Presentations

I love it when I get a chance to work in industries beyond automotive. Over the past few months, I’ve been involved in a couple of creative and business pitches on behalf of a global media title that I am associated with as a consultant. The two couldn’t have given me any more a polarising… Continue reading →

Opened Up?

To those reading — which is my 13 family members — do you see ‘normalcy’ returning where you live? In the NCR, things are starting to open up. From my apartment on the eleventh floor, I can see the shops starting to buzz again after this pause of three-or-whatever months. 

Headlines!

I own a smartphone. I have a couple of news-feed apps that throw regular notifications. I am absolutely miserably fed up by the daily message that says, ‘India records its biggest one-day rise in coronavirus cases’.  Of course it did, you idiots — India has been ‘peaking’ every day, for several days. This is how… Continue reading →

The Earth’s Fuming. Literally.

It was a weekend. As was customary, we drove out to a relative’s place.  We reached and warm greetings were exchanged. “Great timing! You must have lunch with us.” I’m still wondering if it was said sarcastically. It wasn’t great timing. It was 11am and lunch would eventually be at around 4pm. You’ll read why.

Beyond Vanilla; Maybe Blueberry?

I have a small circle of very close friends. At best, it’ll be a metre across if we stood holding hands. Er. That would be an awkward sight.  Of this circle, one is Kunal. He’s a regular chap with simple needs and doesn’t obsess over much. Other than maybe gadgets. He’s been a tech developer,… Continue reading →

Abnormal, Please Be The New Normal

COVID-19 has given us a wretched reality. It’s pathetic — there’s no doubt about it. After some relaxations were announced, the first things that circulated heavily on all kind of social media were videos of queues for booze. There was one of near where we live — the queue went on for almost 800 metres… Continue reading →

Still In Lockdown And Still Loving It!

The lockdown has done great wonders! People are living with each other instead of in their respective phones, there are social praises on the society message boards instead of defaulters lists, and there’s greater sense of cooperation in general. Instagram is full of great cooking, it’s brought out men’s house cleaning skills, suddenly studying at… Continue reading →
