Patna Book Club – a spark of intellectual discourse

This Sunday, 4 April 2017, was quite amazing. Though I am not a big fan of food chains (be it big guns or the start-ups), because of peace and comfort, I was at the Cafe Coffee Day, Gandhi Maidan, Patna. There were 7 people, including myself, and two others joined later. A gathering of nine heads does not sound like a gathering at all, does it? However, it was remarkable [...]

Best Books for Studying History of English Literature

Books for Studying History of English Literature Literature in itself is different from the history of English literature. One can study the literature produced in various genre leisurely. However, no one really bothers to study the history of English literature other than the students and their teachers. Whosoever studies the history, must look for, at least once, the good books on history of literature. Students are often wrestling with the thoughts [...]

Books on my reading list for February-March 2017

What am I reading right now? As a fellow reader, if you too have the same question to be asked from no other than yourself, you are an inspired reader who cares to read new things as well as learn. As a literary entrepreneur (sounds good and new? no, I didn't coin it), I do have to invest my time in different things - planning, executing and planning again... Nevertheless, [...]

Arnab Goswami The Face of Indian TV Journalism

Kudos Arnab Goswami! We watch you! Time! Let's get back home. Close the laptop; pack the backpack (or side-bag if you are a classic person); if you are lucky to reach home before the primetime media slot, get fresh, and let us sit for the plate-full of journalism dose. Start the 'channel shifting' process and pause where you find something suitable for you. No doubt, most of the people find [...]

The Art of Copy Writing: An Unethical Job

Art of Copywriting Yes, I am the worst copywriter! Fake praise is one the things that will always remain on the top of my list that bears a title 'THINGS I CANNOT DO'. The thing which I don't endorse, I cannot praise that. I don't like smoking and you say me to write a copy appreciating this particular brand, I will never do that. Rather, I like giving my opinion; [...]

The Telegraph National Debate 2016 Speeches Anupam Barkha

The Telegraph National Debate, March 2016 Kajol is rightly pointing out in the background; there are many types of intolerance and political intolerance is one of them! However, I will let her speech remain in the background as she comes from the same fraternity where people act as they are told to. Yes, you may go ahead and call it my intolerance towards Bollywood, but what do I with her [...]

Kanhaiya Kumar Released on Bail in JNU Sedition Case

Kanhaiya Kumar: A classic example of media-made hero Kanhiaya Kumar out on bail! Finally, I have understood the rocket science of riding on the boat of fame in our country. Abuse the nation; abuse the independent institutions of India; eulogize the terrorists and their terror acts; get arrested; garner sympathy; confess your crime; get the bail by manipulation; come out and roar again whatever you want; Barkha Dutt will meet [...]

Indian Journalism is All Negative?

The Dilemma of Indian Journalism: Has JNU Claimed It? The recent developments in Indian journalism, especially on the issue of JNU anti-India activities, have worried the conscious Indians. You don't need any special spectacle to see the apparent divide - the journalists have divided into two groups. I don't think it's necessary to 'name/shame' any of them; you better know my hint. It is indeed shocking to learn that Indian [...]
