All That You Can’t Leave Behind

I sit here and stare at the blank screen. I have so much to say. A part of me wants to write how my heart feels plundered leaving Bombay. Another part of me wants to say, “Hey.. isn’t that how its supposed to be. I asked for it. Thats what being a nomad is. Pack your bags […]

Are You Dating a Superhero?

This is a long overdue post about Superheroes and real men. But there is a story behind the story of this post (Isn’t there always one?) So it started with some drunken conversations about men and Superheroes and how every man thinks that he is a Superhero (or tries to be one). You see, there […]
