the national language

Dear mr.balla thakerbray,

Greetings from an indian citizen. I'm not Maaharashtrian. I'm purely Indian. Just one amongst the crores. I can speak in English, hindi, punjabi. I understand marathi, though. So i was able to understand your nephews bluster on national television.

Please note that hindi is our national language and is suitable for public communication within the boundaries of this nation. Mumbai, as far as i know is still in India. So please explain the same to your nephew.

Secondly, in a democratic nation, communication is free. That's the reason we're putting up with your shit. It sounds bad when i say the word. Just imagine a grown man shitting in public when he makes the kind of statements like your nephew.

I expected much more from a man of your stature. You should have taught him better. One of these days someone else might do the needful.

I believe you're a reasonable man, as some well informed folks tell me. So this policy me divisiveness will not get you to the finish line. It may prove to be your Waterloo.

Best regards,
kickass Indian (yours is the ass on the line)

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…
