  • Don’t You Get It? I Know Why They Don’t Want A Girl Child

    The title & the period I am posting this article makes its message obvious. Last week, I was brainstorming with some colleagues about why the girl child is not allowed to be born. We hadn’t reached a conclusion as we all tch-tched for few minutes before the waiter brought our food. Well, now the reason…

  • Independence Day Is A Day Off!

    Today I bid goodbye to my friends and joked about how I was gonna change my Facebook profile picture on account of India’s 66th Independence Day. I would Google the tricolor and upload it. It’s a shame, and even I am totally into it, that we consider completing our pending jobs on this day or…

  • The Curious Case Of A Misnomer

    My last post created quite a furore over the use of the “word” KT as in ATKT. It is wrong to term “KT” as a word, although in shorthand, people prefer KT, than ATKT, or failure or the full form for the matter. So, ATKT which we all know what stands for, is a tag provided free of…

Students of D Y Patil Group of Institutions & SIES‘s establishments sum up to around 60% of this crowd. Half…

  • The Dark Of Authority

    Every institution is administered by authority & that is more of a necessity as we all know. But what happens when you can’t change the Date & Time settings in a PC in a Signals & Systems laboratory? What happens when the dialog says “You don’t have proper privilege to access the settings?” What happens…

  • Dance Of The Meteorological Department

    It is rather dishearteningly funny how the most sought-after department operates during monsoon. The Indian Meteorological Department and its near useless weather alerts have been ruining my commute plans since I began commuting here in Mumbai. It is assumed that people who work there know what they are doing . You might not have noticed…
