Speaking effortless English

“Speak a new language so that the world will be a new world.” -Rumi It is, as they often say, languages can open new doorways you never even knew existed.

Indian-states-and-their-governments

Politics in India, or anywhere really, is a roller-coaster ride, well-equipped with its set of twists and turns. Take, for instance, the case of Jammu & Kashmir. Who would’ve thought two parties as different as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Jammu and Kashmir People’s Democratic Party (PDP) would join hands to form a government? Well, certainly nobody before 2016. But, BJP ended up extending its support to PDP, and the alliance lasted for over two [...]Read More

With all the final preparations in place, it will be a delight to see what magic the “bullet train” manages to pull off, once in action. It [...]Read More

Movie-Review-The-Accidental-Prime-Minister

Indo-Pak Relations

On 18th August 2018, Pakistan appointed its 22nd Prime Minister, Imran Khan. With his tenure, also began a set of speculations- what would the appointment mean for the crumbling Indo-Pak ties? The two countries share a complicated past, no doubt. Bilateral talks have been close to negligible in the past few years, with each side blaming the other for the stagnancy. Now, with a new Prime Minister in the picture for Pakistan, will things change? [...]Read More

Movie-review-BumbleBee1

A blue-eyed Autobot and a rebellious teen embarking on a memorable journey together, along with The Smiths in the backdrop. What can possibly go wrong? Well, turns out, not a lot.

For the 80s kids, it is packed with nostalgia, bringing back the days from the TV show and the Transformer toys. For the [...]Read More

The-largest-political-battleground-UP

Granted statehood in 1950, Uttar Pradesh (UP) has been among the country’s most popular and key states; key in multiple senses, including national politics. It is the most populous state of India, and hence, the largest vote bank. To top that, Uttar Pradesh is home to the greatest number of Lok Sabha seats i.e. 80. The state is often called the pathway to Parliament, and perhaps, rightly so. With the 2019 Lok Sabha elections beginning [...]Read More

new-year-2019

First things first, a very Happy New Year! From 2018 to 2019, surely the 365 days would have been a roller coaster ride, a few ups coupled with a few downs. Give yourself a pat on the shoulder for having braved all the storms, and for your soaring spirits every time the storms gave way to sunshine.
