A Lonely Bud

By Rahul, published on Aug 3, 2013

It was a Friday evening and the school fell into an odd silence, as all the children left as soon as the bell rang. Its weekend and the school won’t open till next Monday; the joy of the holidays filled the faces of the children and the teachers alike as they left the school grounds. A lean young man in a khaki shirt and dhoti’s was rushing through the corridors with a bundle of keys dangling in his hand, closing the windows and locking the doors of each classroom, his name was Appu and he was the school peon. It’s past 5 pm and he was in a hurry not because of the principle waiting in her... (more)

The Indian Way

By Rahul, published on Jul 27, 2013

One of the many things we Indians are good at is in blaming others, we always get irritated by others actions and are never concerned about how ours transpire to them. We like to live in a state of self denial of our own mistakes and flaws, projecting ourselves as the perfect human with explicit ethics and view the word through that shaded outlook, ‘a proper man living in an improper world, working hard, even fighting to correct it’ how more pathetic can it be.

We live in a country run by politicians and the rich, according to whom we all are totally ignorant fools, we don’t know how... (more)

Travelouge: In The Himalayas, Journeys Of Faith And Flowers

By M H Ahssan, published on Jul 1, 2013

Deep in the gorge that it carves through the Himalayas, the Alaknanda River rushed beneath a footbridge. On the right bank sat a busy Indian village, Govindghat, its one street lined with spartan hotels and shops brimming with Sikh religious items and souvenirs. On the left bank, a man wearing a frayed sweater-vest and a ski cap greeted me imploringly.

“Horse?” he asked, hoping I would hire his mules to haul me and my pack up the path to Ghangaria, an isolated mountain hamlet in Uttarakhand state. Ghangaria is the base for visiting the legendary Valley of Flowers National Park — where... (more)

A Matter of Time - glimpses of old Cochin

By iancochrane, published on Mar 1, 2013

... sheets with a quick glance across the bed to Sally. The nurse’s look is sombre and Sally tugs at my shirt sleeve and whispers, nodding in Hedley’s direction. “Don’t worry; he’ll be glad of the company, and I have a magazine.” I turn and take a step closer to Hedley.

“Been to India young fella?” he asks softly. I detect a smidgin of sing-song Welsh, and answer yes – he’s been talking to Sally – I had lived there for a short time. Hedley slowly eyes me up and down, and adjusts the tubes taped to his arm.

Hedley was based down south; in Cannanore, Kerala.... (more)

Freedom from CASTE & RELIGION

By Rahul, published on Jan 31, 2013

Do we Indians take cast and religion too much seriously or is it that they are the only things we care about. It may be an intuitive thought but nevertheless it seems like that the greatest threat to our nation is not our neighboring countries (Pakistan and China) or the Maoist insurgency, it is the numerous religions and castes that prevail here. They have rooted so deep into the soil of our nation that any decisions made or anything done in this country should consider both above the needs, interests and wellbeing of its people.

The recent outrageous act towards a film ‘Vishwaroopam’... (more)

Sister, my Sister

By Anastasia , published on Jan 6, 2013

I feel ashamed. Late last month I was loosely aware that some horrible crime had been committed against a woman in Delhi, the capital of India. But I looked no closer. I was too full of the joys of life. I was getting ready to host a party in London; I was looking forward to a family Christmas in the country; I was preparing for my annual skiing holiday. What was happening in my own life was more important than what had happened to some unknown female in a place as far away as Delhi.

I’m now back to reality, my eyes wide open. I now know exactly what happened to this twenty-three... (more)

The Delhi ASSAULT

By Rahul, published on Dec 27, 2012

Few days back my love called me, she was furious on the phone about something; she kept on cursing nonspecifically and was indefinitely shouting at me. I have never seen her like this before, so as I wondered why she was acting such, suddenly everything went silent on the other side and all that hate in her voice turned into puling. She was weeping hard now, I normally feel sad when I see someone crying and when that someone is very close to me, my eyes will wet unwittingly. With a concerned voice I asked her what happened and she told me about a mail that came to her inbox that same day which... (more)

Mother, I want to live

By Uttam Gill, published on Dec 20, 2012

...in shame. Why, in spite of having such a vibrant democracy, we could not translate the dreams of our forefather to make this country a promising land of peace, harmony and safety. Why, that the woman is still looked upon as piece of commodity?

To hell with this arrogance that we, the Indian are the best; my foot, how can we call ourselves the best when basic freedom of an individual (especially woman) is so casually bartered to medieval beliefs, impressions and criminal actions. Certainly, something is terribly wrong in our society. We all are perpetrators of crime in denial,... (more)

ADDICTION

By Rahul, published on Dec 12, 2012

...consumption and chain smoking; they know what ultimate price they have to pay for such a weakness but how many do avoid/quit its use and help others in doing the same. The numbers suggest that each year the number of people addicted to alcohol and cigarettes are increasing in a drastic way in India (even more increase in death rate due it). The more shocking and concerning fact is that majority of the addicts are in their youth (age range from 14-30), the same youths to whom the future of our country is entrusted. Now alcohol and cigarette (don’t even get me started on Pan Masalas) has... (more)
