Kristopher goes Old School

Nikita is a photographer, and I met her at a wall painting event in 2010. She clicked a few photos of me, and took my contact details. A few weeks later, I was pleasantly surprised to find a letter in the mail for me – the second letter I’ve ever received in my whole life. […]

Mahafreed goes Old School

If you haven’t taken a ride in a double-decker bus in Mumbai, you probably are missing out on something really awesome. When I was a kid, sitting on the first seat on the second floor of these buses was equal to going to Essel World, actually it was better. I would rush upstairs to catch […]

Harshad goes Old School

I’m a big fan of two wheelers. Ever since I learned to ride a small bicycle in 2nd grade, I have been traveling independently – to school and back, protected by two seniors, each on one side till I grew up and started roaming around our small town on my bicycle. Graduated to mopeds and […]

Anubha puts her tools on leave

Doing this task sure had me scratching my head. I went bonkers thinking about what I could possibly go without for a whole day! I could not go without the computer for a day (who can??). Most of us rely on it for work, paying the bills, booking tickets etc. You never know when you […]

Kristopher puts his tools on leave

Most people think of me as a phone addict. But what they don’t realize is that I love switching off and disconnecting once in a while. However, these days, due to the marvel of technology, even the remotest of places have cellphone coverage. Until I heard of this village, “Dhena”. It’s barely 35km from a […]

Mahafreed puts her tools on leave

Being a journalist, any mode of transport is a tool for me. But cabs are for lazy Mahafreed. I usually take them when I haven’t planned my day well. So I decided not to take a cab and use my feet to walk from office to home. I enjoy walking. And walking in South Mumbai is a […]

Harshad puts his tools on leave

Today I let my tools rest. I parted –and painfully too –from my cameras for a day. I often photograph everything different that I see around me. My cameras are often used and, if nothing else, I tend to use my phone’s camera to click photos through the day. Yes, of course, I use the […]

Kristopher revists some old New Year’s Resolutions

I always loved to read. When I was in school, I was a voracious reader. I would read so much that my life revolved around reading. I loved fiction as well as non-fiction. In fact, I read almost half of my school’s library during those years. As a child, my only entertainment I enjoyed was […]

Anubha revists some old New Year’s Resolutions

They say resolutions are meant to be broken. But sticking to them once in a while gives you a small sense of achievement. All through my life, I have always been a “nocturnal” person. I am as awake as an owl during the night and consequently, end up staying in bed late into the morning. […]

Mahafreed revists some old New Year’s Resolutions

So the sax has been lying in its box forever. I mean, I was gifted a saxophone after I went on begging for one and then finally, when it came… I played it… for a while… a few days… maybe weeks and put it back in the box. So the plan was to play the […]
