Can sugar drive you crazy?
Belonging to a western-UP, agrarian family, a meal is not complete without “roti” for me. In fact, in my village, it was considered disrespectful to offer food without the bread. Similarly, someone from eastern-UP, rice completes a meal.
Royal Indian Navy Uprising
I came across the same old arguments about who contributed the most to India's struggle while preparing to write this article. Some views about what freedom means, and what should it mean. Common amongst all this literature are echoes from intellectual ghettoes, a place where the common Indian does not belong.

Slow Rush by Tame Impala
The Album Slow Rush was long awaited by me. I hadn’t gotten over the previous Tame Impala album—Currents, and now, I simple shuffle between the two albums because it’s hard to choose a favourite.

It was 2087, and Earth was dead. Loud cheers of children woke a weary Oba up. Clouds of dust rose over the parched Lunipurwa settlement as they chased and tried to keep up with the mobile water tank. Men rushed into a disciplined cue to collect their day's rationed water in aluminium buckets.

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
What is the book about? Game of Thrones is the first book in a 5 book series called A Song of Ice and Fire written by George R. R. Martin. First published in 1996, Game of Thrones is a fantasy-drama novel. The world, Westeros and the seven kingdoms are entirely Martin's imagination. Game of Thrones is a conquest between rival Houses. A feud for power, honour, justice and revenge.
