    Ruskin Bond’s Dehra

Beginning with ‘The Room on the Roof’ which won him the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial prize and launched him into the nascent arena of Indian fiction, he has explored several genres, edited and compiled anthologies and gifted delightful stories to all readers’ dreams. He has made ink…

    Palampur: The Hidden Wonder

    As countless tourists rush to hill stations to combat the blistering heat of Indian summers by revelling in their pleasant, smoke-free atmosphere, they encounter a nasty shock. Soon enough, the traffic jams and crowded mall road of Shimla, dirty snow of Rohtang Pass, and polluted air of Manali destroy their expectations. This draws our attention to smaller, lesser known places…

    4 CHILDREN’S BOOKS EVERYONE MUST READ

      As wizards and witches whizz past at full speed on brooms, the Famous Five crack codes and save the day with adorable pets in tow and the ingenuity of young minds surprise and excite, the world of children’s fiction envelops us in a gigantic hug. The world of children is simple, easy to understand and remarkable in every sense.…

    From Athens to Kanyakumari: The Sphinx

    The sphinx, a dangerous monster with a lion’s body and human head takes on different forms, names and meanings as it travels from culture to culture. Existing primarily in literature, myth and sculpture, this paradoxical creature is beautiful but deadly, a guardian of knowledge and threat to evil and altogether highly confusing. However, the saga of the sphinx represents the…

    Nutcase

      A handful of nuts is recommended by all doctors as part of a balanced diet. It is said to be filling and healthy as it provides necessary oils to the body. Besides, common sense wisdom blesses almonds with memory-improving capacity, walnuts with better brain functioning and cashew nuts with promotion of cardiovascular health apart from delicious taste and contribution…

    THE GHAGRA

      The Himachal Roadways bus ran at a rollicking pace as its passengers fell to and fro, some of the less experienced ones almost spilling out of the cracked windows. The dangerous wiggling path seemed to hold the hill in a vice-like grip through layers and layers of coil, a serpent created by the British and battered by the Indians.…

    Religion

      An orange jumpsuit has become the symbol of gory terrorism today. A brave cartoon is blasphemy. A skull cap is a mark of murder. A Muslim name is an invitation for intolerance. Ironically, religion created by human beings, destroys them today. Values of love, sharing and enlightenment have been perverted into hatred, jealousy and ignorance. We holler for justice…

    Why THE MIDDLE Appeals to Us

    As Axl caricatures teens to absurdity and Frankie surprises with a refreshing portrayal of a harried working mother, this interesting sitcom about a middle class working family touches numerous chords. The best feature of this show is that it represents average people with funny ticks and problems that all of us can relate with, for they represent scenes from our…

    Across the Fence

    A whirlwind of emotions ventilated her striped outfit, as her weak eyesight drank in the picture of daisies smiling in the countryside. She hung from the doorless opening of the carriage chugging off at a snail’s pace. She didn’t want to obscure the few beams of joy lighting up her miserable world by gazing at the sickly faces wearing morose…

    Let’s Go Bananas!

      As we crunch seemingly “nutritious” fruits and vegetables, not realizing how we’re drinking poisonous chemicals along with them, our stomachs lurch with fear. Today, an apple a day, can take your life away. Innumerable efforts to buy fresh produce aren’t fruitful anymore. The joke of slipping on a banana peel has been done to death. Let’s paraphrase: Slipping a…
