Auto Vibrate

One day at the massage parlour… A scientific study conducted in the US has found that whole-body vibrations can be as beneficial as exercising.

Ego Massage

I went to see the penguins at Mumbai zoo. But to my horror, what I saw looked like the return of demonetization — 50,000 people waiting in queue! Usually at the most, 50 people turn up outside the homes of our top B-town film stars to catch a glimpse of the star. Compare that 50 to the 50,000 showing up ...

Super Heroes we’d like to see on screen, but won’t.

FOUR INDIAN SUPERHEROES WE NEED ON THE BIG SCREEN Tired of Viking gods pretending to be aliens while looking totally human? Bored by time travelers and detectives with British accents?

Being highbrowed

It’s the thing to be these days. And before being highbrowed becomes too mainstream, which incidentally is the closest antithesis of being highbrowed, try and inculcate these sure shot qualities in yourself to be, if not talk-of-the-town, at least to be licensed to talk about the town.   Read no further if you understood the previous paragraph without re-reading it ...

Amreekan dreams and Harry Potter & the return of Lalit Modi

Seems to me, that this week, both my fellow country men and women are aspiring to reach new heights. Quite literally in case of mountainous 7’2’’ Satnam Singh Bhamra sending the media into a tizzy freakout, laced with the heady drug of accomplishment of one another Amreekan dream.
