  • Rant Against Irresponsible Film Critics
    on Apr 30, 2016
    Everyone nowadays is a wannabe film reviewer/critic/wit who will, at the slightest involuntary trigger, tell you exactly what he/she thinks are the flaws of a film and how they should have been rectified/ addressed. Every student of the humanities, i...
  • What a waste !
    on Dec 9, 2015
    I have always found it strange that people availing even of a buffet at restaurants or invitations seem to waste food in great quantities. I mean, hello, it's a buffet, right? You get to choose what you want and how much you want. Strange then, that...
  • A Lesson in Loudness
    on Dec 9, 2015
    I am finding out from professional experience that a meaningful stare or a few quiet but forceful words can be so much more effective with students than a raised voice and sarcastic jibes. Disapproval that seeks to reform without alienating is best a...

    Sentence in comprehension : 'Noise is the greatest bane of modern life.'Question: 'Provide the appropriate meaning according to the context'Word: 'bane'Answer (by hapless student, SL, class 9): 'A character in the Batman series.'Reaction (of hapless...
  • Brrrrrrrrrr...aving the collllllld
    on Dec 24, 2012
    I seem to be the only one who is not at all happy to experience the Kolkata winter. Everyone else seems quite eager to bring out their winter plumage and bedding and savour every degree of the fall in mercury. I feel wretched. I always seem to feel...
  • Pathbreaker: Sanjay Puri
    on Dec 11, 2012
    Although physics-phobic, there's a particular branch of engineering I wish I had had the resolve to pursue. Architecture. Even more so when I read of radicals like Sanjay Puri. The man, trained by Hafeez Contractor, has not only revolutionised the d...
  • Moping
    on Dec 7, 2012
    Nowadays I don't feel like blogging. So little seems to be happening in my life. Well, that's not true, strictly speaking. For instance, we just celebrated Sports Day at school. But the entire process of getting my class to go down to the field in a...
  • Injecting fear !
    on Nov 10, 2012
    Overheard today : "I think I'll come later for the medicine. I'm really scared of injections." I was taking an anti-tetanus injection at the local medicine shop and whipped my head around. Guess who ? It was a big, and burly but terri...
  • Getting class-y
    on Oct 15, 2012 in school funny
    With all the histrionics that I have to put up with relating to my class at school, it's a wonder that my sanity is still intact. Sample some details and you'll know why : 1) The boys and girls (roughly 2:1) are always at each other's throats. On...
