Features

  • 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.
  • Track Record

    Ravi Chopra's The Burning Train (1980), with its unpredictable twists and turns, entertains and educates.
  • Revisiting Mahabharat

    Just one viewing of this old classic by B. R. Chopra shows us all that is wrong with Hindi television today.
  • Pins and Needles

    Nascent pictographs created from the controlled symbiosis of needle and ink on nothing but bare skin hold a certain allure for this writer.
  • Hard Pressed

    In a world where everyone with an Internet connection possesses the agency to self-publish, how do we deal with questions of quality?
  • A Space Odyssey?

    It is not very incredulous to foresee a future where sentient mechanical beings will take over the mantle of evolution from human beings.
  • Not Too Shabby

    Sanctum is a lifestyle store that focuses on a more relaxed approach to creating intimate spaces, with pieces that are both comforting and timeless.
