Some science stories

As most kids were, I too was a curious cat. I always wanted to know how stuff works, why things are the way they are – I still do. Amidst this journey of quenching my curiosity attacks, I have had many many (mis)adventures like most of you too I am sure. Here I share a few that I came into my mind. I was in fourth standard I believe. My

My Adventures with Credit Card Calls

When I entered the corporate world, I used to be proud with these calls I used to get from time to time. “Sir, you have a pre-approved credit card from {insert reputed bank name here}.” Hmm.. So I am someone important to the economic system now. But as experiences were gained these grew from minor annoyances to whenever the phone shows an unknown number – “oh! not again!”. I used to

The authentic guide to honking in India

A few weeks ago one of my German friends, Juergen had come over to India. I spend a few days driving him around and showing him places. Well as for any foreigner, it did take a while for him to trust the way we drive – it progressed from a scary horror thriller to ‘I don’t know how, but I won’t get hurt’. One of the things he was

I had sent a not so positive review of her skills, and the poor thing was drafting a “spicy” reply to me. Suddenly she receives a phone call from her colleague. The colleague asks her to inform their Project Manager (a

A 1000 Rupee Haircut

My hair grew too long. Yeah that sort of thing happens in life. But the bad part is hair cuts in Germany are billed in Euros – to be precise 15 euros + 2 euros tip to the barber. Now lets refresh some high school mathematics: 17 Euro = 17 * 57 = 969 Indian Rupees. Hair cuts in India are billed in Rupees – to be precise 20 Rs. + 0 Rs tip to the barber.

The Biometric Me

The rules of Germany. Well it does get some “getting used” to. From applying for a residence permit to driving on the roads to walking on the streets for everything there is a system. And for an outsider it seems like fitting a round object in a hole meant for something square. I dipped my toes into this strange world before even leaving the shores of India. They need a

The Bad Movie Magnets

Why I do not know. But me and my friends never miss a bad movie to hit town. Hindi, Malayalam, English … we have seen the worst of it all. And with each passing day we get to see a new movie that sets a new benchmark! The latest one was the Malayalam flick “Rashtram”, on which we unfortunately wasted 30 bucks. I still don’t get what the hell those

Those Broken Resolutions

So its February, the time of the year when you look back at those delightful ambitious resolutions you make in January… and as usual find them all broken. To refresh your memories, my resolutions were not to get angry, not to complain and to update this site often. So far this year I have gotten angry more than once already, started complaining right from week one and you definitely know
