The first thing that comes to your mind when you think of
Gujarat is alcohol, or rather the absence of it. That, along with the
dominantly vegetarian diet, meant that it was never a preferred travel
destination for a meat loving geologists like us. In a bea...

14.6 Sholay and Emergency
“Hum angrezon ke zamaane ke jailor hain! Ha haa...” (I am a
jailor from British era). Sholay was released when young Indians, all born in
free India, could easily make fun of their imperialistic past. The youth were

14.4 The War Within and Without
Even after a decade of independence India continued to face
problems both from both within and outside. Nehru’s charisma helped Congress

14.2 Idea of India
Who wrote the constitution of India? Not many know the answer
to which I will come later. But the making of the constitution of India was one
of the toughest jobs in the world. It has been criticized for being copied, but
coping the right thing that suites ...

Battle of Khans

'United we Stand', but then why should we stand? Isn't it the backbenchers who stand? Since we do not like to stand, we don't l... WOMEN can never be EQUAL to MEN. Okay… I am going to land myself into a big time controversy here. I firmly believe that women can never be equal to men.

Just when the ‘ghar bapsi’ movement was settling down, a
