It is raining and the house has many inlets to witness the downpour. The porch with a large patch where potatoes (the reddish ones I bought at Shoprite) are grown, is fully exposed to the air. The front room has a large tree (trees inside my house) and water percolates through the edges. The sitting [...]

Raju, the sweeper, knew something was wrong when Mrs. Sujani, the always alert old lady, did not respond to his first doorbell. By the day end, the apartment manager was persuaded to open the apartment with the emergency key in the presence of Yamuna, the neighbour; the account writing nephew who came everyday; the chowkidar [...]

Onlookers looked and unlooked at the shabby man, overweight with unkempt beard and uncombed hair, both white, dragging along his bicycle across the 10 lanes crossing circle.

We went to stay with my trader friend in Delaware; a school friend who migrated to US and like the true early European Traders, set up his final trading post in Delaware after a long stint at Pittsburgh. He has the “doer“ spirit so well perfected by the American culture which benefits from diversity that [...]

We learnt many things at the world’s learning mecca, BOSTON – MIT and Harvard being the niche and fifty plus other learning places. The best way to get a feel of Boston is to stand on one of the bridges of Charles River and look at the distant outlines of the Hancock and Prudential buildings, [...]
