Chicken Malai Masala

Ok, so this was basically a mix and match of three recipes I found on the net. I made this recently for some 7 people during a house party. Making two kgs of chicken, was a whole lot of fun! My first recipe on the blog, do try it and let me know how it [...]

Kala bandar

Delhi 6 is actually not about the infamous ‘monkey man’ of Delhi. its not even about the romance between Bachan and Sonam. Heck, it’s not even about Delhi.
It’s about the people we are and the things we do and the things we say, that makes us that much more Indian. How we tend to believe [...]


The 10th board results were to be announced in a few minutes. I knew I had given it a good shot, but I could never be too sure. All through school, I had been a 60% kind of a guy. The website as usual conked, and I was trying for the last 2 hours. It [...]

Catches, Condoms and Commitment

A for apple… B for ball… C for…cat… also Commitment… Catches… Condoms… So the more I have known the human race, the more these words have intrigued me. I know I have a long way to go… but what the heck! I don’t mind sharing what I have learnt so far. 
Catches - Makes men [...]


I did mention Mushy B**ch Consultant Writing - but i intended this one to be Mills & Boons Consultant Writing.
While Vinni@13 was busy having a 6 month romance, BCW@13 had only theoretical knowledge - having read all the Mills & Boons Romances in this world, probably more…
At significantly older than 13, I surprise myself by [...]

Shivraj’s Wardrobe

Buttface, my flatmate was in the midst of the shootout in Leopold café. Thankfully, nothing happened to him, he just fled from the place. The attack raises a lot of questions and provides no answers.
Shivraj resigned today a few hours back and took moral responsibility for the same. Modi announced a package of 0ne [...]

Beauty and the dork

Let’s be honest. I was not the most sought after guy in school. I was the average guy, with large plastic spectacles, and a hairstyle like the good boys we see in movies. Neatly combed with coconut oil, and dripping wet.
For a dork like me, that I landed with the hottest chick in school [...]

Rain and a sweater

The girl’s hostel was a few miles away from our campus. So whenever we had to meet them, we had to drive all the way there, pick them up and head places.
One evening, a plan just happened and I was heading for a dinner date. It was a nice quiet dinner we had over candle [...]

The Movie

“Yeah sure, I’ll be there in 15 minutes, just leaving home”, I said as I locked the door. It was sunny Sunday afternoon, and I was looking forward to the movie I was going to see with her. There is a lot of history between us; and not just the memorable kinds. But something did [...]

Buttercup meets SDK

SDK always wanted to do a lot of things in life. It’s a matter of great accomplishment, pride and honour.  On the fateful day, Buttercup met SDK and got to know more about him and his misadventures. In this exclusive interview SDK shares with us, what it takes to be the greatest. SDK always talks [...]

Super Duper Kid – Part II

As promised. Super Duper Kid, and all that he once did!

SDK once…
…shook hands with the girl who had just asked him out. Hopefully, it was very turning on for her.
…danced like a duck and won the first prize. Others were dancing like dodos.
…got caught in school making out by his Hindi teacher. His dad scolded [...]

Mad Miranda

Yes! The name is inspired from ‘The Devil wears Prada’. I don’t think much of the book or the movie, but when I saw Miranda on screen, I thought, “There she is!!!” – ‘She’ runs the firm that I work for; also tries to run my life whenever possible.
Everyone will have at least one bad [...]

The 4 Cs of Consulting – Part I

It may not be the McKinsey way of consulting, but it’s definitely worked for me. Here goes…the first C!
CYA (Cover Your A**): This is in fact a universal principle to be followed by any human being working for any other human being, since the nature of the beast is to find someone to blame, whenever [...]

The other way round

Trust me people, my life is not exciting enough to be posted on a blog and I do not want to list why, how, when etc…
Anyhow, there are certain things that add adventure to my routine life. Things, that I have not seen many gals do and “conventionally” are not expected to do.
No! This is [...]


So me and Softie sat in the balcony of my sea facing house. We met after a long time and had a lot to catch up. I guess that is the most obvious thing women do when they meet . After talking about our tiny tots, the last gift given by our hubbies, how good [...]

Super Duper Kid, Part I

Ladies and gentlemen! Presenting, the adventures of the super-duper kid, the then alter ego of mild mannered Vinni. I crack myself up when I remember all the things I did when I was a kid. When you are young, the funny thing is, you really don’t even give a damn because you know your [...]

He loves me, he loves me not..

29 July 2008. I remember it like it was yesterday. What was that? Oh sorry! Wrong date! I meant 9th May 1996 of course. The first time I saw him. You see, it was only the previous evening that we had picked up the glasses my optometrist had prescribed for me. We were classmates, good [...]


These are one hundred percent original. Feel free to forward this to your friends.
“Damn! I am so thirsty, and there is no water. Let me just drink the old sugarcane juice lying around somewhere”.
“This weird thing under the cow’s belly let me try pulling at it, just for fun. Just to see what [...]

The Way It Is

I am always asked this question. Why do you drink and smoke so much? The fact is, I don’t know. I drink by the gallons to stay totally sober and I smoke more than I can count. It’s not a good thing in life, and I don’t even try to justify it.
I don’t even remember [...]

The Open Door

Sometimes I think its pushing things too far. Heard about this thing called the open door? Its one thing I really like here in HP. There are no doors, none except other than the main entrance door where we flash our dog collars. What else do you call them?
Life’s an open book here; you should [...]

Fish, Chips and Coffee

Vanilla and chocolate sauce is the most favorite combination amongst masses. They taste the best when one is frozen and other is hot. They complement each other just right.
One is the perfect flavor of simplicity and the other, is devoured, passion, and the perfect sin!!
Opposites and ironies are the food for thought. They make our [...]


Life plays as a mystery
I thought I knew it all
The ride was going to be smooth
It fooled me again, that’s all
Memories of a distant place,
Tender love in my heart
I dream of tomorrow,
But I am scared of another fall
Beginning of a new day,
Made stronger by the failure
I will try again
Only to fly even higher
Written by Preeti [...]

Life of a Salesman

When I say, SALESMAN; what comes to your mind first? These are what you would imagine him as. Right?  

A pesky door to door salesman (selling soap?)
A smart boy in a tie and suit (again at your door, the Eureka Forbes kinds?)
The boys outside banks, trying to sell credit cards
Tele marketers (“I am calling from HDFC [...]

Angel Strikes Back!

This might seem an act of revenge coming from a 23 year old that has some authority on this subject matter and hence I will go ahead with it. These are personal observations along with some universal facts. Please do not think I am feminist, I am just trying to kick a&* of an MCP! [...]

The Kid in Us

I haven’t shaved for a month now and have a thick beard. It’s not the sexiest of sights; I don’t want to shave it either. It keeps reminding me of what I have grown up into. Notice the choice of words.

I was browsing through some of the old family snaps, and I can’t believe, it [...]

Why women like men

These might seem very bull, very very bull coming from a 23 year old who has no authority on this subject matter but I’ll go ahead anyway. These are just personal observations, and do not involve any kind of research whatsoever. Please don’t think I am sexist, I am just trying to be a male [...]

Into the Wild

Some movies change you. Into the Wild, is one of them. It’s not yet changed me, but it’s got me thinking a lot. The movie is about Chris McCandless who grew up in Annandale, Virginia, and died at age 24 in a wilderness area of the state of Alaska. After graduating in 1990 from Emory [...]

Courage Under Fire

Before I begin writing anything, I would like to put a small disclaimer here. Please don’t expect a direction, a moral, a conclusion or a happy ending in this article. I wrote many paragraphs individually and put them together under one heading - something that just sounded cool and with nothing more to it.
I was [...]

The Dead Ones’ Perspective

There are so many things we watch, do and talk about every day. Be it shopping, eating, driving or just lying down. We feel free and are well equipped to put a point across. But have we ever thought of the objects we use or see everyday? I mean I am sure if they could [...]
