“Our wedding was fixed for 12th July, as dictated by an astrologer.”

So, this is what happens. I am reminded of a marriage which could not be fixed because of an astrologer and here, the date is fixed by an astrologer and these are common sights in India – irrespective of its length and breadth. A wedding has more contributions from the relatives, pundits, churches, temples or maulvis compared to what a guy and a girl contribute. Well, this might sound funny as well! But, this thing, A Dowryless Wedding, is funnier than what it seems in a helicopter shot or a bird’s eye view.READ MORE


The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh – review

March 15, 2018 • By

The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh is a book which, by most of the critics in India and abroad, is considered one of those novels who could successfully classify themselves to be called an ecological novel and it’s true as well… reading his novel, in case of The Hungry Tide, gradually removes the shroud from the concerns which we often ignore but only realise when it’s too late already. The human beings deported from their homes; the animals beguiled from their native land and the bystanders musing over the loss… this is all in his book and it makes the novel even complex – far, far away from the ones which are being read and written in the present day in our country.READ MORE
