Long Live masks and air purifiers.

Long Live masks and air purifiers.

Just after the night, we set blaze gazillions of fire-crackers, the rockets, the bombs and the chakris, the air around the urban centres in Northern India has turned awfully pure. The Air Pollution Index (API) has scaled faster than the Salman Khan’s box office collection, driving in smog in headlights has became a delight in Delhi and the hazier, contaminated azure is giving  déjà vu. The comatose ‘Environmental Education’ textbooks have suddenly started rejoicing after they overheard that the pollution level during ‘Diwali’ in 2016 is far greater than 2015.

It isn’t RESERVATION, it’s INJUSTICE!

It isn’t RESERVATION, it’s INJUSTICE!

A scored a gleaming 90% in Class 12 board examinations, aspiring to become a doctor. B scored a meagre 50%. A was a ‘general‘ candidate, hence had to kill her wish and had to study Engineering from some XYZ college. B was an ST. She now plays in the lobbies of the best medical college; shamelessly clicking selfies all day long. Such is the unabashed wrath of this blasphemy called Reservation.

‘Udta Punjab’ Or ‘Doobta Punjab’!

‘Udta Punjab’ Or ‘Doobta Punjab’!

Censor aficionado Pehlaj Nihalani,

Frankly speaking, I didn’t know you until your name popped up in ‘Udta Punjab’ controversy. When I saw you, everywhere on my news feed, I learned that you head the Censor Board of India.
