  • Make way for Johnny!

    I checked off a major thing off my bucket list last week – watching Johnny Lever do stand up live. As a comedian, its one of those things I never really thought would happen simply because he switched from being a live comedian to a Bollywood actor long ago. Still, for those of us who remember...

  • Wrestlemania

    If you were to ask me last week about the best thing I've ever witnessed in life, I'd have gone with standing behind the boundary rope as Dhoni hit the World Cup winning six against Sri Lanka. Now, I'd probably have to go with Wrestlemania 30.

  • The great Indian laughter challenge

    It's officially time to rename the 2014 general elections "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge". Every morning our political overlords wake up and ask themselves serious questions like "Are there more fringe loonies I can induct in my party?" "What should I do to contradict everything that I...

  • To Indian men on behalf of Sunny Leone

    I’m very conflicted as I write this because India has enough of a problem with men taking it upon themselves to speak on behalf of women. With due apologies to the fabulous Karanjit Kaur Vora aka Sunny Leone who doesn’t need anyone’s help, I apologise for taking the liberty to speak to men on her...

  • Stop whining about political rallies

    Arvind Kejriwal graced the city as part of his election itinerary this week. In keeping with the aam aadmi ethos, Kejriwal decided to take a local train from Andheri to Churchgate. While the optics were correct, everyone knows it wasn't an authentic experience. First, no human unwillingly twerked...

  • Model Code of Conduct

    Call me old fashioned, but there are few things I find more exciting than an election. This year, with the national battle tilting towards a BJP Vs AAP contest (voters seem to have already given Rahul Gandhi a participation certificate and sent him home with a tiffin) we can be sure that many...

  • Stay away from pricks

    I want to start off by telling everyone reading this that if you have someone in your social circle thinking about getting a tattoo, I feel your pain. You are not alone. Together, we’ll get through this.

  • Why our parliamentarians will make the best reality show contestants

    I’m always a little circumspect writing about what goes on in our state assemblies and Houses of Parliament. First, I was one of the few people in school who took civics seriously even though it only constituted 10 marks of the social studies exam. Second, even though we make fun of individual...

  • Why I love the IPL Auction

    This week I spent an unreasonable amount of time watching the IPL Auctions. For those who don’t follow cricket, it’s a collection of some of India’s most corrupt individuals coming together to buy players who can then (allegedly) fix matches for personal gain while distracting Indians through Charu...

  • Another year, another auto expo

    One thing I really miss about being in Delhi is going to the Auto Expo. For those too stupid to understand the self-explanatory title, the Auto Expo is a collection of fancy cars kept inside really cramped halls while millions throng to get closer to these hunks of metal while involuntarily rubbing...
