  • Sex and the City: The bedroom bullying

    Q: My husband was once my good friend. I had shared my angst about my ex-boyfriend with him back then, and had revealed all the perverted sexual demands – that I despised – I had given in to. He helped me break up with my ex, and subsequently he proposed to me. I accepted his proposal as I saw him as a very sensitive and respectful man. He was everything that my

  • Life lessons from plants that humans must learn

    Anybody who would walk into my house couple of decades ago would first be welcomed by the plants. My mother always introduced to them as a part of our family and ensured that the plants knew whom they were being introduced to.

  • A peek into versatile Manoj Bajpayee’s mindscape

    I come out emotionally bruised from Dipesh Jain’s directorial debut Gali Guleiyan. It’s a film that uncomfortably locates you in the maze-like minds of a physically abused child, Idu, and a tethering-on-the-edge adult, Khuddoos (Manoj Bajpayee). After watching this perfectly cast, imaginatively shot, sharply edited film, I rated Manoj Bajpayee’s performance as one of his three best in the 20 years since his breakthrough with Satya (1998). Manoj begs to differ. He

  • Be calm and composed

    Aeons ago in ancient China lived an old farmer who had worked on his land for many years. He was blessed with a perspicacious mind. Abruptly, one day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, a motley group of neighbours came to commiserate with him. “Such misfortune, such ill luck,” the agitated group of villagers reacted. “Maybe,” nonchalantly replied the farmer. A few days later the horse returned, accompanied by three
