You’re A Strange Country, India

Everyday I get alerts on what are the 10 most searched topics in India on Google. Today’s trending searches really caught my attention. The most searched topic in India on 28 January 2016 was the ‘Australian Open’ (kind of expected) followed by the ‘zika virus‘. For those unaware, there is a possible link that pregnant women infected with the […]

The World’s Most Polluted City (By Far) – Delhi

If I asked you which is the world’s most polluted city, you’d probably say Beijing. Sure, with the amount of attention the media gives the Chinese capital, you’d be among the many who believe it to be true. However, the funny thing is that Beijing doesn’t even feature in the top 20 most polluted cities […]

Hardik Patel: Regressive Idiocracy

No matter how hard you try, you can never escape the ridiculousness of news in India. Whether it’s adding to the ever growing list of murder mysteries or baseless accusations of molestation. However, there’s one story that’s making waves and has managed to really infuriate me, and that is the story of Hardik Patel.

So now apparently porn is banned in India. I tell you, India has the most random and arbitrary rules when it comes to censorship and blocking content on the Internet. I remember back in December 2014 India tried censoring a whole bunch of websites that included Github, Vimeo, Daily Motion and other legitimate websites. In fact if you […]

It’s taken from this Storypick blog and apparently everyone on Facebook seems to love the masked vigilantes spraying […]

Get On With It

So if you’re Indian or have tons of Indians friends, I bet your Facebook feed like mine is full of Supreme Court bashing posts. So instead of bothering you on Facebook, I’m just going to leave my incoherent ramblings here.

The Next Innings

This weekend saw a turning point in the history of cricket, and also in the history of India. Sachin Tendulkar, a cricket legend and a demi-god in this country, retired from international test cricket after over two decades. Now I’m really not a cricket fan, but if Sachin Tendulkar was ever batting, hell I’d watch […]

Priorities For India

So last Friday the four rapists were sentenced to death for the brutal crime they committed almost a year ago. A punishment well suited in my opinion. I honestly don’t think scum like them should be allowed to live in society. But like everything almost else this country does, we’re once again missing the trees […]

Jugaad And The Death Of Craftmanship

Jugaad is probably one of India’s best gifts to the world. The word originally comes from a vehicle that is put together using the chassis of a tractor/bus/mini bus and an agriculture water pump as its engine. It’s a word that is used to describe a process of creative innovation when resources are limited. Like […]
