Am I a hypocrite

She stood right in front of me. We had lost the order. As I looked at the paper work it was apparent that it was not a good job. A major specification had been overlooked. Even before I could find the words she stoically said - ‘The team has goofed up. They should have told...

Atma Shakti

You told me I was still impure that I still had blemishes, the light was still blocked I strived, strive and continue striving to make Thy presence shine… You told me I was not competent that I still didn’t know how, my effort was not efficient I strived, strive and continue striving to make Thy...

The Probability of the Immposible

She looked up into the sky, the vastness was simply breathtaking. The serenity of the moment seemed to extend forever. A distant noise - a bird call or was it her imagination. Still sleeping under the open skies, she gently moved her eyes backward. A glorious sight unfolded - a thousand birds flying across the...

Where is the Shudra in you?

I never understood the caste system as a child. I still don’t. I never realised names had religious connotations. In one of my very early stories as a storyteller, the protagonist Ayesha had a mother named Asha. When someone asked me why I had chosen names from different religions, I simply said I liked those...

But many don’t know why… Since April 1980, Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale had taken residence in the Harmandir Sahib complex in Amritsar, Punjab. In 1984, Prime Minister Mrs.Indira Gandhi ordered an Indian military operation called ‘Operation Blue star’...

Dance happens…

After a series of dance shows celebrating my silver jubilee on stage, in January 2007, as I was climbing down the stairs, my left leg simple gave away! It was horrifying! There I was just having completed a successful ‘margazhi season’ and the very next day, rather than a sense of euphoria at the accomplishment...

Kakkai Chiraginile…

Kakkai Chiraginile Nandalala… He doesn’t say there will be no black – He says you can still see its beauty… He doesn’t say there will be no thorns – He says the flowers will still bloom… He doesn’t say there is no noise – just that silence is hidden deep within… He doesn’t say there will...

Why Krishna…

I wasn’t too enamoured by character sketches as a student. But today’s maturity prompts me to revel in the characterisation of every role I come across. Hence this series… Why I admire… Krishna Many of us fail to see the significance of Krishna lost as we are in validating his historical or mythological reality. Yet,...

Don’t make God Cry…
