announcement and comeback

I had planned to write and post this entry two 40 weeks back. That’s the plan I made six 44 weeks ago. But I could not. Not because it’s a difficult topic to write about (may be it is) but because I was busy. When I was not busy I was lazy. So the news is this: […]

Busy Days, American Politics and Our Leaders

I have been extremely busy in the past two weeks. Blogging was the primary (or caucus? ha ha ha) casualty. I was completely into journalism, my primary profession. Reporting, writing, managing and editing. The assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto came as a shock and I found myself in our newsroom tracking the […]

When You Don’t Have Anything To Do

Kya alchhi lageko hau! What to do when you don’t want to do anything but still want to do something? My friend Sudeep tells: sutne! [sleep] or go to movie. Those are nice ideas but what I did a few days ago was this: No, I am not telling this right now because if I […]

On “Happy Dashain Mass Emails” and Ram Ravan Dilemma

Theme of the blog: I have put an auto response message to the senders of Happy Dashain mass emails requesting them not to send any such emails next time.

Kathmandu Load Shedding: Life in Darkness

It’s 1:21 AM and I just woke up. I came home at 10:30 PM last night. There was no light in the house. There was no light in the village. The whole area was under darkness. Living in darkness has become part of life in Kathmandu and other parts of Nepal. But then I think […]

Oh My Sleeping Child the World is so Wild

… But youve build your own paradise Every midnight I quietly go to bed with this promise that I will wake up early in the morning. The alarm in my cell phone rings just in time: 6 AM. I instinctively reach up to the machine and kill the sound of Christmas tune only to go […]

State of Mind: Midnight

It’s 12:12 AM as I am starting to type these words. Not exactly a good time to start writing a blog post. May be a right time to dream. Dream about what? Sleeping with a girl? Forgive my lingo but I am alone and I am adult and it’s exactly 14 minutes past midnight. I […]

House Arrest: Read, Sleep and Imagine
