A Brand New Day

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”. …

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 …

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, …

Harshad catches up with an old friend


One fine day, a voice from a nostalgic past calls me up and says “Dude, let's catch up”. No guy declines a buddy's call to catch up, especially if the friendship goes back long and deep. Samir already had a plan ready –“Let’s visit Girgaum chowpatty and have 'Milkmade Gola'.” …

Mahafreed catches up with an old friend


I rarely get time to hang out with friends because of work. But I'm slowly realising the importance of 'hanging out' as I get older. No use wasting your life in office. It's always nice to meet an old friend and just sit and talk about random things. So I …
