    Holding On: 90+1

    Alive Again: 90+1

    Ever felt like a complete stranger when you wake up and look yourself in the mirror? I have. I was a stranger to myself every morning, a stranger who succumbed to the high expectations of our ‘society’. The stranger who ran away from reality, the reality being- I didn’t want a nine-to-five job with Saturdays off. I wanted to live…

    Who I am: 90+1

    12th October, 2003 “Engineers earn pretty well, you know. Think about it, eh?”  He said slapping my back. “Haanji, Papa. Pa, you know Krish? He went to London this summer and he visited Stamford…”   I tried to reply as enthusiastically as I could but he cut me short, obviously. “Arrey? what football-football you keep doing every day?

    Book Review: Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    ‘To go wrong in one’s own way is better than to go right in someone else’s.’ There are good books, great books, and then there is Crime and Punishment.
