Cher Ricky

It's been a long time I talked to you. It's true I miss you, more at some times than others. I always wished we could be together, somewhere, for sometime, just being us. You being you, me me and all that. But I am aware of the reality, the harsh reality that imposes its will on all of us. Sometimes we are okay with it, sometimes we drink it down with a gulp of ethyl alcohol or sleeping pills. But the fact remains that when shit hits the ceiling, the person who I want to be with, other than my family is you.

Still a STRANGER or a FRIEND...

The treasure hunt begins – He was giving me hints about who he was and I was replying completely wrong. After sometime the hint was “singing “.Yes he is a singer that reminded me a conversation between my friend & me pointing out at a guy who had really sung well last week when I was out of station which I ignored at that point of time. Ok.. There I get him!!! So he is “Nandan Kumar” whom I gave a non-existing movie name for dumb charades to save Chocolates which was prize for correct guess. There the conversation starts …There were days before I had noticed the same guy some evenings when I board bus who use to b odd 1 out. He is good looking and moreover we are from the same place. He had joined our company just a month before and he was...“Road Romeo” types. I was really happy to know somebody from the same place and the conversations went very easy from day 1. Days went on Normal with a “Good Morning” in the morning and “Tadas” in evening J . The conversations in between were fli…

Beautiful Feel

One as usual day in office after my evening chai with one of my friend –“Stephan”- returned back to my desk. By default checked my mails after 50 times almost in a day which made no difference but 51st (Random count) time when I logged in my system I see a LYNC request (Office internal Messenger) by an employee named “Nandan Kumar” Popping in my screen. Before all this let me introduce Myself, I am “Raashi” carrying bubbly nature with a cute smile always but short tempered. I am a born dancer half of the reason me being a bit famous in my office campus. Unknown requests on LYNC were common for me but I use to check the Profile in our company directory and at the end of the day ignore the request. But in case of Nandan he was a lateral to the office and had been less time for him joining the company, his profile was not seen in the directory. I searched 4 times for that day, was fed up giving a try and left for the day. It’s me in our company bus who comes so early to reserve a window …

Top 10 Hindu friendly restaurants in Kolkata

Kolkata is famous as a culinary delight for food lovers the world over. Ok, if that's too much let's just say it's famous all over India. I am not saying it provides the best food, but it's great, cheap and unhygienic. So here are the top 10 restaurants that Hindus can try out while they are in the city.



Hindus in Kolkata, being a minority, can find it difficult to find places that are both famous and yet conform to their spiritual practices. So keeping that in mind here's the list. I have kept out small joints and shops selling sweets simply because it's not recommended to fill your stomach with rosogollas alone - no matter how much you like them.

Safety tip: Always ask beforehand if they have beef on sale. :)
It is still recommended that you ask before you place an order if the place serves beef as demand may require the establishment to provide it. In that case please let us know and we will update it.
Some of these restaurants will have multiple outlets in…

Nonsense

Time flies away so fast. I mean, just so literally effing fast! I have always of the opinion that time would have its own definite speed of travel, so to say. Of course, the very statement - speed of time is itself a paradox! In any case in case you are unable to fathom what gibberish I am talking about - fear not. That is exactly my intention. To write a couple of paragraphs without a specific intention.

Intellectuals may have certain new terms to explain this phenomenon. Some call it post modern writing. To the lay man, this is non sense - naturally. And that's exactly what I feel too. In times when idiocy and beheadings are becoming common, such nonsensical writing is disgusting, wasteful yet - harmless! So think about it. Take just 5 minutes out of your special life, pause for 300 seconds. Take a couple of selfies less a day, post a post less on Facebook, browse a tag for a short while on Twitter and think. The time that you lost, is never going to come back again. It's g…
