Features

  • Village Vignettes: Harvest Season

    Being a handicap in a farming family is a deadly curse—the ignominy of being an extra mouth to feed without the solace of being a helping hand.
  • U-bends: Ujeli, Again

    Uttarkashi isn’t likely to make the top ten lists of many tourists. It doesn’t offer much in the way of museums or ancient ruins or souvenirs.
  • Songbird

    In the dead of a summer afternoon, hiking through a forest in the Deccan is an unnatural experience.
  • Winter Is Coming

    To put it simply, Game of Thrones is no simple, black-and-white tale of good versus evil.
  • A Hippie in a Strait Jacket

    Airports and airplanes are the best places to try on different faces to masquerade your identity and experiment with your personality.
  • We’ve Got a Problem

    The excitement of having solved a mystery can be said to only marginally exceed the frustration at encountering new questions.
  • When John Met Sherlock

    What is really interesting is how much further Sherlock goes than the original stories in developing the characters of the two protagonists.
  • The Show Must Go On

    It was all a show and these people were here because this political rally provided better, more tangible entertainment than the T.V. at home.
  • Redemption and Beyond

    Bryan Talbot’s The Tale of One Bad Rat should be forced on to everyone with half a working mind and half a decent heart.
  • Photographing Death

    The severed head of a goat lying a few metres away did nothing to deter me from peering at it, curious.
  • Colour Me Blue

    A book that tells a story of loss may make you appreciate life a little more. Does grief not appear more universal than happiness?
  • Village Vignettes: Happiness

    The secret to happiness, so intangible, and yet so familiar, remains too tantalisingly nebulous to encapsulate in words.
