Interview In A Dungeon

A few weeks back, I went for an interview conducted by a super secret unidentified company. Since I am still studying, and will probably want a job soon, I shall refrain from mentioning the name or location of the company. The interview was short - just a few questions like why I would want to… Continue reading Interview In A Dungeon


The Constant Migrant

The city has embraced migrants for centuries, and become home to a huge variety of people. Not many can claim to belong to Delhi, yet, anyone who comes here, belongs to it. People who live here are known for their generosity. They welcome visitors with wide-open arms. This is perhaps the reason why the city… Continue reading The Constant Migrant

Flaming Flowers!

Loudspeaker Lily

A few posts back I had written about spring and flowers. I had sketched out a hibiscus bud a few months back, and this month I drew the 'loudspeaker lily'. I folded a 'half-imperial' sized sheet and drew these on each half. They're approximately 24 cm in width and 33 cm in height.

The Journey

Last weekend, I had been invited to attend a cultural programme.┬áIt was the Annual Day Celebrations of a social organisation, which provided foster care for street children. The course of the programme seemed to follow the pattern of the lives of the children taking part in it. The show began with a group of children… Continue reading The Journey

The elections for the municipal corporation were held today. Where there are elections, there is bound to be campaigning. So I too have jumped into the campaign mode. Albeit, of a different kind.

Today, the wind is blowing hard. The sky is overcast, but there are some rays of light,… Continue reading The Taste Of Life

For the love of the game

April 4, 2012 (sometime at night) The flu season is here. The newspaper is full of reports about this bug called IPL* that seems to have infected thousands, if not millions of people. A few years ago, I too, had been a victim of this bug. It had crippled me during evenings. I couldn't move… Continue reading For the love of the game

The Scrapbook


This post belongs to the original post titled 'Letting Go' I pulled out the scrapbook from the bottom of the cupboard with the intention of scanning a few pages. The paper has yellowed, the edges of the paper are torn, and damp hands have removed some of the colour. But as I flipped through it… Continue reading The Scrapbook

Letting go

When I was in school, there was a dance teacher who had once asked us to submit an assignment. She had asked us to find out about the various dance forms of India and prepare a scrapbook with pictures and information that we had collected. I was just going to enter middle school, and this… Continue reading Letting go

Relevance of Relations

Tomorrow some guests are visiting us. Well, they're actually relatives who live in a land, far far away. I don't remember having ever seen them, and I don't know if I'll ever see them again. But they're in town, and have been kind enough to acknowledge our presence, and have decided to pay us a… Continue reading Relevance of Relations
