Kaapiteria

A lot can happen over a coffee they say and rightly so. Coffee is not just another drink, it’s an emotion, an expression, it’s true love. I’m starting a series called ‘kaapiteria’. The idea is to capture moments in and around coffee. Hope you like it, please do share your thoughts, I would love to…

Backbone of the Nation…Really?

Really disheartening to see what is happening to our farmers, makes me wonder ‘Is India still an Agricultural Nation?’ TN Farmers plea went unheard, MP has recorded 1982 suicides in the last 1 year, Maharashtra in turbulent state. Corporatization of Indian Agriculture, I’m no expert but as a layman when i read these stats i…

BLACK

“If we were racist, why would we have all the entire south…Tamil, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra…why do we live with them? We have black people around us,” Tarun Vijay Dear Sir, This is not the first we have come across something like this. We go through such humiliations everyday…We have always been overlooked. Aren’t we…

Thambi Vilas – Review

Thank God It’s Friday and just like every Friday this was no different, eating out was on the cards…Last evening my friend and me discussed on how would it be to just walk into some random marriage, eat and leave (this is in my bucketlist 🙂 ) but somehow that didn’t happen. Option 2 was…

Do We Really Care?

March 8th – My phone has been busier than usual…Good Mornings are replaced with Happy Women’s Day messages. Videos, Images, Texts and there was someone who shared a Phil Collins wala song as well. Everyone are celebrating WOMEN but honestly do we really care? When 1 in 3 women worldwide (35℅) have experienced sexual/physical violence,…

By The People

Tens of Thousands of people are protesting for ‘our’ rights in Tamilnadu. The protest is not just to safeguard our Tradition and Culture but to ensure that our Future is stronger and brighter. This protest isn’t just about Jallikattu and the sport…this is beyond that. For years we have been ignored, deprived of our rights….

Cattle Class

Lots have been discussed on Jallikattu. I just wanted to share a few points that I’ve researched, read & understood on why we need more of our Native Cattle. Cross-breeding has brought to extinction of our Indian cattle. There were 130 or so cattle breeds in India 100 years ago and now there are only 37…

What A MESS!!!

Kabali to Karpagambal, Madisar to Maami, Ramakrishna to Raayar…Mylapore is all about rich culture, tradition, music and much more. While I haven’t had an opportunity to explore this place in detail but I can assure you that your trip to Mylapore is never complete if you haven’t visited Mylai Karpagambal Mess. Breakfast here is simply…

Chennai Wears Vardah

What Chennai witnessed yesterday was a total carnage. Wind at 120 KM/hr is something we have seen when Rajini, Vijay, Captain walks during the intro/hero worship song but to be there and see/feel something as scary as Cyclone Vardah was an experience we would all remember for many many years. Cars & Buses flying, Trees…

Something Fishy

‘is this a classroom or a fish market?‘ Most of us would have come across this famous line during our school days…maybe this is what has increased my love for Fish Markets. I get really excited when i’ve to go for Fish shopping, while we regularly order seafood from Fish-o-Fiish/Indian Fish Land nothing can replace…
