60 kmph

60 kmph!  A pace that puts the wind in your face and the worries behind.Where you hear the rustling of the leaves, and catch the smiles of the children in the street. That classic iron heart of a motor sitting relaxed between the feet.  60 kmph, it’s magic if you please. Them vibes smoothened out…

A neo-classical motorcycle affair

When you’re a 20 year old motorcycle, there’s always something that’s going bust on it. It could be the meters or the brakes, the lights or the carburettor. It could even be some nuts & bolts that suddenly decided they’d had enough and decide to hop off. But as long as you keep that 2T-Fuel…

Cadbury Gems 

Something about Cadbury’s Gems that brings a smile to the face. Their colourful appearance, the sound they make when you shake the packet, that distinctive crunch when you bite into them – everything is instantly recognisable. There’s even different ways of eating them. One is where you munch them down. The other is where you…

Broken Beauty

  Bruised, she lay still on the ground. She knew she’d never meet her favourite flowers or soar into the bright blue skies again. But she put her pain aside & spread those wings one last time, for she wanted to show everyone just how beautiful this broken world can be… 

Spicing things up in 2017

2016 was an eventful one to say the least and this year is all about turning the heat up on things. Pushing the envelope, exploring new stuff & being on the limit. Guess the chilli tree in the window agrees too, which is why: Mirchi ghya mirchi, laal tikhat mirchi, Khidkeetli mirchi… #mepanshetkari 😀 Happy New…

Aarey Energee: memories of an awesome bachpan

‘Energee’ if you’re a leaf from the same book as me, then the mere mention of this word will take you on the journey back in time. Of blue & cream coloured stalls, selling milk in blue plastic packets & foil-capped glass bottles. Lassi & non-flavoured cow’s milk too.  Decades have gone by with generation…

Jumla is the new black

It’s hard to tell whether demonetisation will turn out to be a bold hit or a costly miss, but it appears to many that the government has taken the black money bull by the horns. Announcing the withdrawal of ₹500 and ₹1,000 notes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi listed several steps that…

The Yamaha RD350: Dream Interrupted

Spotted a RD350 yesterday, being lovingly bought back to life. Was in a workshop the size of a security guard’s cabin in Mumbai, but that didn’t matter. There it was sitting majestically in the classic Red livery. It managed to stop me right in my tracks. The brain drained out all other thoughts. The heart…

My #DeMonetization experience & some thoughts stemming from it

8th November, 2016 began on a fabulous note for me. Yummy home cooked food, my favourite folks around me and the preparations of an exciting two-week long motorcycling trip that was to begin the next day. I’d gone to the ATM and withdrawn 10 Thousand rupees, to help me with liquidity for the expenses in…

दिवाळी खडाजंगी जंकशन ची

कंदिल लावला, पणत्या लावल्या, अम्मा ने छानशी-छोटुशी रांगोळी काढली, एकत्र फराळ केला, आणि झाली दिवाळी साजरी आमची 🙂

A scoop full of bullshit

​ This is in reference to a write-up I once read on the scoops and vomit, yes you heard right. He does have a distinct style and rather offbeat style that makes slang sophisticated. The author’s thoughts became a benchmark for me and helped understand where to…

Keep Moving, Keep Exploring

Broken road, cobbled road – smooth road or no road; the surface underneath doesn’t matter as long as you’re riding.  There’s only one life to travel & we’ve got to keep moving, keep exploring…
