The second week of my internship is just the same as the first one, lots of excel sheets and research and no Don Draperesque triumph in sight, and though I know that it is the same for almost everybody else I can’t help but feel a sense of foreboding at all times. Every minute spent...
You know that feeling you get when you plug in your charger but forget to turn on the switch or when you put the toothbrush in your mouth only to realise that the paste fell off?  Or when you lose the end of the tape even though you marked it or when your cereal gets...
Mumbai speaks as many languages as she holds people, but ends up screaming in one rather unnoticed tongue that I caught myself talking in the second week of my internship. This poem is the result of this observation. Parth Rahatekar (Batch 2020) — this city loves her people enough to teach them a language she’s...
FILM REVIEW: The world is round and its societal norms, twisted. Individuals belonging to the LGBT community are viewed by the society in a rather eccentric fashion. “Out” by Krysanne Martis is a film that explores the stories of two young women, how they revealed their “queer” gender identities before a society that is strongly...

MUSIC REVIEW: There are bad days, and there are good days. Sometimes, you fail a test miserably. Sometimes, you just spend the day on your bed relaxing and listening to some good music. Those are the good days. I was in one of those happy moods one day, listening to some great tunes. My taste...
A week into work, I had been tested and prodded and assessed to the liking of some of my more senior colleagues, who now went about deciding what sort of work I should be doing. Having put a dreary cycle of annual reports and campaign assessments behind me, it was with excitement, and, dare I...
FILM REVIEW: The ordinary human mind craves familiarity, security, even monotony over change. It interprets these as signs of prosperity and accomplishment. But there are a few among us who yearn for fresh experiences, better challenges to stimulate their intellect and keep it from falling into the dreary desert sands of dead habit. Grey Scale...
Client and Colleagues, are often the very first things that pop up in the mind when one thinks about the office they’d be joining in and the kind of work they’d be doing. However, I would make a teeny-tiny change to this equation and add another C- Commute. Commutes can be a threat to your...
