Features

  • Rasmai Ya Ramgarh?

    Spending some time with a villager almost always assures one that change is the only constant we all look forward to.
  • Fire and Ice

    If you are a cynical traveller, driven by the urge to seek something different, then Iceland provides just the right kind of kick.
  • Words for a Silent Space

    Male Justice has marched on undaunted, and mutated into more potent and prurient forms.
  • Game On?

    Expectations, they say, kill an idea. And after reading Guy Ritchie's Gamekeeper, I agree vehemently.
  • A Bit of Jeeves and Wooster

    Everyone has their own perfect Jeeves and Wooster, but I can't see anyone other than Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie in those roles.
  • Reporting Rape

    That a woman is raped every few minutes in the country is more than just a statistic for us crime reporters. It is our bread and butter.
  • The Chaatwalla

    Just like an alcoholic’s tragic relationship with his seedy madhushala, my lonely nights had come to be punctuated by sub-standard meals at Kolkata U.P. Chats and Paratha Center.
  • The Tea Party (Part 2)

    This decade has rendered us incapable of facing a gathering on a Sunday without a cocktail or three.
  • The Virtue of Visibility

    As a woman, you are never entirely independent and detached; everyone has a stake in keeping your freedom in check. And they will never let you forget that.
  • Hiking Up Hipti

    Seven households, one school, and one tiny gompa (monastery) make up Hipti, a small village in Ladakh.
  • The Haircutwalla

    Scissors snip menacingly, the naked razor blade wanders tantalisingly close to my ear, and cheap talcum powder is generously applied all over my neck.
  • The Tea Party (Part 1)

    It was no surprise, then, that I, like the rest of my generation, embraced the coffee culture with a vengeance. It was my way of telling tea to go to hell.
