लेडीज़ होस्टल : गीता अय्यर

लेडीज़ होस्टल : गीता अय्यर

जीवन के सफर में हर मोड़ पर कुछ लोग मिलते हैं। किसी से स्नेह का रिश्ता बन जाता है, तो कहीं केवल परिचय पर ही बात खत्म। और हम आगे बढ़ जाते हैं। स्वप्न, लक्ष्य, कर्म, व्यवहार, हर मोड़ पर बदलता है और ये परिवर्तन शायद जीने की पहली और […]

The Crown

The Crown

“Scientia Potentia Est” the mighty words uttered by Sir Francis Bacon, centuries ago, firmly dictated that knowledge is power. Indeed! But, strangely the adage sounds equally plausible when reversed.

The Matsya Curse by Shweta Taneja

The Matsya Curse by Shweta Taneja

Giant spiders hanging out in a bar, delicately featured Bharundas, shrieking at high pitch and Maut Worshippers banging their head and tapping their feet in tandem with high music.

Meri Pyaari Bindu

Meri Pyaari Bindu

Just finished watching Ayushmann Khurana and Parineeti starrer Meri Pyaari Bindu. Released a few weeks ago, on the same date as that of RGV’s much anticipated Sarkar 3, this movie failed to garner much collection at Box Office. However, Parineeti Chopra’s oomph and Ayushmann’s deceptive Bengali appeal, ensured that I […]

मधुराक्षर : अप्रैल-जून 2017 : समीक्षा

“मधुराक्षर” का अप्रैल जून 2017 अंक कुछ दिन पहले मिला.. खूबसूरत कवर पेज और विविध विधाओं को सम्मिलित करती ये पत्रिका, पहली नज़र में ही भा गयी.. कारण रहा बृजेन्द्र अग्निहोत्री जी द्वारा लिखा, हिंदी साहित्य की सामयिक बुराइयों पर चोट करता सार्थक सम्पादकीय.. एक कड़ा रुख अपनाते हुए बृजेन्द्र […]

The story revolves around a Zamindar family, relaxing leisurely in Chandernagore, to aid in healing of their daughter-in-law Kiran. The story begins with a small discussion between Kiran and her husband Sharat, wherein they discuss […]
