Which team am I on? #PoliticalPost

Over the past months – or maybe even couple of years something interesting has been happening. I have found myself in the ‘opposite team’ cheering or hoping for a common goal. And what’s even stranger is that this hasn’t been a complete switcheroo.  It just seems to happen every now and then. No! I am not […]

Into the mind of a believer

Those who follow me on Facebook would have frequently seen my lengthy discussions with my old classmate Stephen Raj. And these discussions revolve around the same topic – the age old debate on reason vs. faith. (I have a feeling Steve wouldn’t approve of the way I have pitted reason against faith.) Over the years we have […]

Wishlist 2015-16

Sometimes it feel like these ‘annual tradition‘ posts might end up being the lone warrior keeping the blog alive. I just wish at least one year someone (other than the wifey) decides to look at this and buy me something from the list… Am looking at you. Before we get to this year’s wishlist, let’s look […]

Baahubali – Quick Thoughts

Edit: Added a sentence on Tammanah’s character.   This is not a review. I repeat. This is not a review. Just some thoughts on the movie neatly put into a bulleted list. If this was in a PPT, the slide title would have been… you guessed it, NOT A REVIEW. I was very curious about the […]

Ramzan 2015: Haleem Reviews

Another big year

By any account 2007 was an action packed year, probably the biggest in my life till then. I changed career tracks to consulting, bought my first home, got married, and bought my first car. Phew! 2015 promises to put it to shame, and for very similar reasons. No. I am not getting married again. But we did […]
