Mummble Mind: Inside Out Review

What’s better than an animated film that’s so full of emotions that you just can’t let it go? Inside Out is amazing, it’s right up there with Pixar favorites like Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Up & Wall-E. I still remember being fascinated the very first time I saw Wall-E.

IIT at any cost?

Every cloud has a silver lining, they say. But, sometimes, even sunshine seems tinged by clouds. Clearing the JEE is a ‘dream come true’ for any engineering aspirant in India. But, once the initial euphoria fades, reality bites. Clearing is good, but topping is better. Without a good rank, you will never get the branch of your ‘choice.’ And what ...
