We are always in a hurry that we forget to understand how things become excruciatingly painful for others. There are a lot of things that happen in and around us which seem natural but when you see from a distance, it is disgusting.
It’s been over 23 year my address had been revolving around the PIN Code 110023. I’ve been so much attached that at many places this has been my permanent address (actually just like we put –do– or –Same as above– in Permanent Address & Present Address field). Now it’s time to move on… not leaving Delhi but 110023 is not where I’ll be.
Spent all school days from this place, even returned here in college, , got first job, got married and also have a kid. When so much happen around the same place you grew up, it actually holds a special place. Remember many shortcuts, those cycle races, play grounds, chased away by gardeners, house-hopping. Actually have been spoilt by the area and never will find such a place. As my dad says, “We are living at the citadel”, yes Raisina Hill is not for from there 😉 We bid farewell to friends, offices, jobs and even to frenemies but this is me leaving with a heavy heart and lots of memories. Good Bye 110023.
I finished up posting about issues in India with Are we there yet? and I’m stuck knee-deep in an Egg and Chicken problem. May be I’ve a solution but it is as twisted logic as the rule. Continue reading “Egg & Chicken problem: Address Change”
For a long time, I’ve intrigued that what is the status of India, are we a developing nation or a developed one. I wrote this post Can India be superpower? almost a year and half back. I can not say if this is a logical extension to same, may be you could suggest me where this fits. This brings us to a major question, will we ever be a Developed Nation?

I’ve been abroad for around a year. Now I’m back and I can see a lot of things have changed. One thing in particular: Wallets. The kind of wallets I’ve been used to is the physical one. Enter PayPal & Google (I know these only), you enter card and/or bank details and you are done. Worked on Apple Pay too, similar thing. In India, there is another league going on.

I’ve been thinking of writing on this one particular topic for sometime. This is inspired by my fellow Indians working with me in UK.
Let me start with the title, Who is Aam Janta? I initially wrote it as Aam Aadmi but then realised it’s not politically correct. Shall I change to Common Man? It’s still not correct. Mango People (a la Love Aaj Kal)? Ok, Aam Janta it is.
In case, you are here for any particular political party, this may be political topic but it does not endorse any organization.

There has been a lot of hue and cry over bringing the black money back to India. Supreme Court is asking Government of India to give a detailed report. We hear Switzerland is willing to share all details of holders. But with all this being said, where is the money and will it ever come back?
You are a Delhite or even Indian, fed up with corruption and hoping Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will root out corruption, well I’ve a gift for you: a big “F*ck You!”
