Starting Working Out with Weights

How To Start Working Out At A Gym.

I am sure that you’ve been bombarded by enough #Fitness tags on Instagram to at least wish a partial loss of your paunch or muffin top and consider working out.     Or maybe you’re one of the minority who see the real value in being fitter and realize that you need to start working […]

Indian general election 2019

Voting In India Is Pointless. Convince Me Otherwise.

Voting in the 6th and the second last phase of the 2019 general elections concluded yesterday. The parliamentary constituency I am a registered voter for, went through the process in this phase. I chose not to use my right to vote. I did it as I believe that the most critical issues being faced right […]

Haircut For Rs 50. Nostalgia Complimentary.

I woke up this morning and figured that the vegetation on my face and head was in dire need of pruning. I’ve been trying to grow my beard out to look like one of those on men who I believe are direct descendants of Thor. However my genes have put a spanner in the works […]

The Hidden Shimla Sanctuary Walk

The Hidden Shimla City Sanctuary Walk

Shimla, like most “hill-stations” in India has been ravaged by thoughtless forest razing construction. It’s also plagued by a maddening surge in traffic, causing snaking jams through arterial roads. A mere shadow of its former self, Shimla has devolved into an ugly looking mass of concrete. Did you know? The term “Hill Station” was coined […]

Diet trends 2019 – Choose One to Lose Some (Fat)!

I am pretty sure that given the excellent job being done by the food processing industry and their marketing departments, girth has become one of the primary physical measurements beyond height and weight. It’s totally okay if you’re sniggering at the “girth” bit. What would life be without campy humor anyway? But in all seriousness, […]

So you’re not in your late teens or your early twenties anymore. Life’s alright and you enjoy your alcohol every once in a while. You probably have decided, or have been forced to live on your own.

Delhi Vs Mumbai

Delhi Vs. Mumbai. From the perspective of an (ex) Bombay lover.

You want a conversation starter at any party in either of these cities? A Delhi Vs. Mumbai debate has the success rate of Vladimir Putin running for whatever the fuck he chooses to run for. Given that I was living in Mumbai for a month pretty recently, have assembled a few talk points here to […]

Travel

I don’t like to travel. Surprised? Here’s why.

Shooting the breeze with people you’ve just met, or even known for a while, the topic of travel comes up at times. Nine times out of ten, people will start behaving as if they’ve just come out of a naked run through a cocoa plantation. “Ooooh I LOOOOOOOVE to travel!”, “I SWEAR if I could, […]

Quit Social Media

Why I Gave Up Using Social Media & What Happened When I did.

Immediate trigger? This woman on my Instagram timeline posting yet another pouting selfie #accompanied #with #captions #that #had #been #hashtagged #like #this. #Fuck #Your #Neanderthal #mental #ability. Isn’t it enough that you are trying to look like a chimpanzee with all the pouting? Now you’ve got to go ahead and splash all the garbage in […]

Christmas Tree

A Designer Christmas Tree? Keep it away from me.

  It was the day before y’day that I fired up Instagram and came across this post with a Christmas Tree that had the alphabets of brand Bulgari dangling from its branches. There was really NOTHING special about the tree, except that it was from Bulgari. Then there was the post description which went something […]
