On Losing Cornell

It’s been so long since I made an entry here, I have been in and out of it, be it depression, losing someone I love and just the sheer amount of stress when it comes to life. Something in me has been breaking down till I finally wrote this which was published on The Mighty….

Tamasha : Imtiaz Ali did it again

Everyone I know asked me the same question today. How was Tamasha? Its Imtiaz Ali, A R Rahman, Irshad Kamil : Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. A movie couldn’t ask for a better team to work with and as viewers, its all of ours dream come true. Well. Let me start by saying. Tamasha isn’t…

Slash and Kennedy performed in India : AND I WAS THERE!

Overwhelming. Unreal. Spellbound. Words keep tumbling out of my mouth, all meaning the same thing because as much as I kept on saying I want to catch all musicians I know and adore perform live when I start earning, it was always a thought never reality. But it was! I had been talking about Slash…

Nicolas Ouchenir : Fashion’s Right Hand Man

I’ve often come across many faded and dog-eared postcards at antique shows with hand-written messages barely legible on the back. What’s always surprising is how elegant and expressive everyone’s handwriting seems to have been 100 years ago. There was a time when every postcard, contract, or love letter was a thing of beauty – giving…

Harry Potter : The Books that live forever

This post comes a little bit late but since the promised topic was going to be Harry Potter, I wanted to make sure i had a good post rather than a hurried one. “The stories we love best do live in us forever so whether you come back by page or by the big screen,…

Subcultures : Where are they now???

PART I : “Subcultures are meaning systems, modes of expression or life styles developed by groups in subordinate structural positions in response to dominant meaning systems, and which reflect their attempt to solve structural contradictions rising from the wider societal context” says Michael Brake. The significance of subcultures for their participants is that they offer…

Grunge : A lost movement

GRUNGE : A movement Why does popular music change? Why do we, as creators and consumers of music and culture, rebel against what appears to be harmonious and correct? Although the answers to these questions may be many, the musical soundscape of Seattle during the early nineties gives an insight into how the modern generations…

Meet your heroes – they turn out to be humans

We have slowly started blurring lines between a hero and a celebrity – a celebrity is not necessarily a hero, and a hero is not necessarily a celebrity but now that these two worlds are colliding I wonder who gets to be called a hero?

Breathing easy while dancing: The Green Mill, Chicago

Lists have been promoted from a guest star to a plot-regular in my life lately. There was always someplace to go, somewhere to be and something to get done. My world looks like a dizzying blur. Consuming one thing after another, without waiting to swallow. No wonder my body is nauseated more often than not….

Exhale …

It has been two years since my journey with Spoken word Poetry began. More than 7 years since my recognition of my declining mental health did. Speaking about it, did not begin in the first 5 years. Neither did acknowledging it exists, so any prospects of help or medication was certainly out of question. I…

The Unabashed Endearing Vulnerability of Call me By your Name

I have to admit, I havn’t explored director Luca Guadagnino’s work before. But I have read the book Call me By your Name, so watching the movie was something I was dreading. But imagine my surprise when I came across a movie that made me forget to actually compare it to the book. (that, never…

Chaos

It has been a while since I got my bearings back. I mean yes, I have been posting and yes I have been very active on my social media but we all know the facade that social media can be. With almost every aspect of my life in shambles, I stopped talking, writing and immersed…
