Aural pleasure, visual torture : A song whose...
I’m talking about this utterly sensuous song from the movie Rocky - Kya Yahi Pyar Hai, sung by Kishore Kumar & Lata Mangeshkar. First of all, it is filmed on Sanjay Dutt in his baby (baba) avatar who is paired with the uber-sexy Tina Munim. Why didn’t anyone tell the director that it’s like the Beauty and the Buffoon revisited? There’s Sanjay Dutt trying out his...
I am 11 years old traveling by myself from Wadala to Matunga, barely a 15-minute bus ride in a BEST bus. My grandparents think I am independent and capable enough to undertake this short journey by myself, which I am. I get up from my seat and wait in the corner of the gangway of this double decker bus, a couple of stops in advance, so I don’t miss my stop. Just as my stop is about to come, I move...

A daughter's dilemma
My two year old son, my driver and me form the three members of our little farewell group as we get into the crowded Secundrabad station this afternoon, helping my parents with their luggage.

When I checked sometime later, it was a link to a website called 4Deserts and him telling me, we must do one of their trails together. I checked the link and what this was...
On why I want to practise preventive medicine
People may think I’m nuts to get a proper degree in medicine and then take a degree in Nutriton. This makes me a doctor in the field of nutritional medicine but people are only too quick to jump and label me a “dietician”. Almost a century ago, a man with a great mind, Thomas Edison had said “The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but...
An unpleasant experience with Paediatrician Dr....
I am new to Hyderabad. It has been just over a year that we moved from Bombay. The toughest part about relocating is finding essential services that suit your temperament. In this case, I’m talking about a paediatrician. After being under the care of an extremely fine gentleman of a doctor in Bombay, we were looking for someone as good, if not better. After seeing two paediatricians, one...
