In Appreciation…of the Simple Pleasures of Life

By   /  November 5, 2016  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on In Appreciation…of the Simple Pleasures of Life

Hello folks, I believe that life has so much to give if only we cared to give a little thought to the most minuscule of joys (which we’d find so much of) only if we’d stop looking at the looming discomforts and discontents. So here I am, to share with you the simplest joys in […]

Time to Set the Record Straight

By   /  October 19, 2016  /  Khekiye K Sema, Our Columnists  /  Comments Off on Time to Set the Record Straight

There was a time when bureaucracy commanded a healthy respect of political class because matured unmotivated technical guidance based on rules and regulations were the standard benchmark that mostly determined government actions. One […]

3 am in the morning, jostled out of my sleep by an odd thought was very disquieting and unsettling. It did a quick spin, darted around and had me up and out of bed in a snap of the fingers. It stuck fast. Worrying, confusing and so nagging-ly persistent, I had to pen it down […]

A Knocked- for- six Pummel

By   /  September 4, 2016  /  Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on A Knocked- for- six Pummel

One cold chill day in April, (for those of you, who perhaps can correlate it with the fourth month of the year) was not for me. A Pleasant springtime is what I was hopeful of, but the unanticipated stark freeze of a still lingering European winter was what hit me. Notwithstanding, here was my moment […]
