• abhay Nanu Ki Jaanu and the Deol-ification of Abhay

    With Nanu Ki Jaanu, Abhay Deol finally feels like a member of the Deol family. He fights multiple goons single-handedly, just like his “dhai kilo ka haath” cousin.

  • Person of the Week: #InternetMahabharata CM Biplab Kumar Deb

    Person of the Week is no easy position to fill. It isn’t merely about making waves, but also about making us laugh.

  • Why Bigg Boss Marathi Reminds Me of My Life in a Chawl

    Bigg Boss Marathi reminds me of my life in a chawl – a bunch of Maharashtrians stuffed in one single dwelling with a common bathroom and kitchen. Host Mahesh Manjrekar is like the Ray-Byan-wearing kaka from another shakha and Usha Nadkarni is the judgemental aai of the House.

  • Mumbai Meri Jaan: Kabhi Cushy, Kabhie Kaam

    The first time I met Mumbai, I was looking at the city through keyholes that were actually the glassed domes of its fabled high-rises, tinted with expensive weekends.

  • An Honest Letter from Manmohan Singh to Mr Modi

    Modiji, you and I have many things in common: The Prime Ministerial office and silence. We are also men of vikas, who believe in economic theory. How else do you have the courage for bold ideas like economic liberalism or demonetisation?
