C is for Chutiya ?? 

‘Chutiya’ – In the past one month, i would have heard this word over a thousand times. No kidding there with the number; so much so that I have to literally pull myself out of that ZONE. Well, in all honesty i am A TAMILIAN and i do not know HINDI and after 3 months associated with a few people, i decided i am better of knowing only what i know. Very...

ScrollBar

No my dear friends I am not writing about a bar that is called scroll bar. But its a nice name for a bar. “The Scroll Bar”. We are talking about the actual scrollbar here. A little googling told me that scroll bar, is actually scrollbar(no spaces) and it dates back to 1974.  Why this interest in scrollbar suddenly. Well, my life is being taken up by...

Gender, Roles and Power

I have been throwing the word ‘patriarchy’ around for a long time. Patriarchy as defined by the dictionary, is a system of society or government in which men hold the power and women are largely excluded from it, this is the dominant ideology.

JUST TALK ;  I can hear Arnab Goswami’s voice resonating on ‘women’s safety’ after the whole...

New Year 2017

2016 has been uneventful, crazy and what a rollercoaster it was- NO, I am not going to say any of that. For me,  2016 was exactly how 2015 was, except that I witnessed there were a lot of deaths this year across the world.

Beyond Beds and Books – Hostel Life

They used to say something in the lines of “Ozhunga padikalana hostel la...

OCD

It became her routine now. To log in to her Facebook account and spend enough time in it so not to feel guilty for what she is about to do next. She points the cursor towards the search button and clicks the first name that drops down. That is the only name she searches for, clicks on his profile and flips through his account and photographs, trying...

Why our politicians need to grow some….self respect
