The different guy – HR issues
It was my first day in a spacious office with a not so huge staff. One of my present colleague also happened to be my ex colleague, quite senior though.

Puppets of destiny
Indian men and women have traditionally been puppets of destiny governed by tradition and culture. The moment a child is born to an Indian family the process of turning him or her into an ideal Indian man or woman begins; from the food we eat to the clothes we wear it is all about imbibing the culture into the heart and soul.

As I Woke Up an Aspiring Author
And then it came to me, no not like a lightning bolt, but from friends and family who have read my small narratives that if I put my heart and some years to it, I could become a writer! That would not exactly be being an artist but definitely close - it is creative after all!
Dogs n Balls
Dogs love balls – this is one of the only beliefs about dogs that isn’t a myth. Balls, stuffed toys, ropes – even socks! – are all favorite toys for dogs. However, balls take the cap.
