The production of the epochal Maruti 800 was terminated not more than 5 weeks ago. This post is a tribute to arguably the first people’s car of India. For more than three decades now, just ‘Maruti’ has been the moniker for this car. Something similar to butter’s moniker ‘Amul.’ Such journeys of a company being identified by a legendary product instead of the vice versa are rare and difficult to accomplish. What makes the Maruti 800 so revolutionary? It was launched at a time when car was actually a luxury and a status symbol unlike today wher...

The recent Kejriwal fiasco induced my memory to recall a thing on the TV I had seen when I was still in school. The channel was Doordarshan something and the clip was about a bunch of middle-aged and old men and women screaming at the top of their voices, with chairs in their hands ready to be hurled at each other. A helpless man who was in the limelight of the room like a judge is in the courtroom was trying to pacify the entire scene. As innocent as I was, I thought it was WWE of the uncles and the aunties. I was later told by my father that ...

The bandwidth of modern Indian Television viewers has been narrowed down to saas-bahu drama and reality shows dominating the TRP’s in almost every household affecting everyone’s wits, not in a good way of course. However, there are a few shows that provide some refreshment in the forms of humour, drama and brain food. 1. Satyamev Jayate: Probably the best Indian Television Show ever made. It throws light on some socially sensitive issues that prevail in our country like female feticide, honour killings, domestic violence to name a few. Amir K...

‘I vote! I pay taxes! I do my duties I am obliged to!’ How often do we hear people saying these very words? I’d like to address such people as ‘ignorant residents’. A majority of Indians feel that paying taxes and voting are the only duties one is supposed to perform. These too, are done, after hiding external incomes and voting without getting their facts right. These ignorant residents are of no good to the society beyond these tasks. In a democracy like India, where the citizens are vested with considerably more power than the citizens of ...

Why is the Batman my favourite superhero? The Dark Knight. The Secret Guardian. The Watchful Protector. Some of the many phrases used to describe the Batman. I think of the Batman as the perfect superhero and he is my favourite as well. Everything about this character is just incredible and believable at the same time, unlike some web-spinning nerd or x-ray vision alien.  Even the antagonists that give him a run for his money are so awesome and believable. The fear of bats in childhood becomes Bruce Wayne’s strength and inspiration against o...

They say college years are the best years of your life. (Of course the teachers are arrogant and the authorities strict, but apart from that.) The college festival days are the most memorable of them all. This is, if you are somehow related to them. Participating in these fests is easy. And ephemeral. The real fun lies in organization. Organizing includes everything right from handling sponsorships, signing artists and bands to groundwork like security. Organizing or working for your college fests provide a good share of benefits. You get a g...

A year drop is a difficult situation. Perhaps one of the toughest challenges life throws at you. It may be after your twelfth grade to improve your entrance/boards score, or during your degree. The initial days are the toughest. You need to relax during these. You have studied for some time now, don’t start immediately after you learn of the unfortunate news. Engage yourself in some activity you like, it could be sports, reading, watching movies or anything of your choice. You need to get one thing clear. You are not going to study for the ne...

My grandfather likes to talk. He likes to tell things. A few days back, he was enthusiastic as ever to tell me the trends of his days. The most intriguing and unfamiliar to me were the ones regarding schooling of his time. The differences that I could observe were startling to say the least. Education is a necessity today but it was certainly a luxury a few decades ago. With girls not allowed to leave their homes, sons expected to continue family businesses, very few could have the luxury of formal learning. Not just these, schools were scarce...

  Mario Puzo’s The Godfather and its sequel are always in contention in every movie lover’s mind when someone asks them about their favorite movie of all time. The Godfather Part III is not particularly loved by people, frankly because it just wasn’t even half as good as their prequels. Despite of this, The Godfather trilogy is easily one of the best ever made and The Godfather and The Godfather Part II make an appearance in almost every list of the top 10 movies ever made. For me, The Godfather is a different culture, a different world ...

What can revive Manchester United?   With Sir Alex retiring, many connoisseurs of football were quick to write Manchester United off who had been simply dominating the most watched league in the world for two decades. They were right when it comes to the team’s performance in the first third of the season. It’s not that United have been absolutely pathetic but they sure have been below par when compared to the time when Sir Alex was managing this rather ordinary clique of players. The last 5-6 games have been in United’s favour for su...
