        • Who: Craig Dowden
        • What: “Negative Emotions, Anyone?”
        • Spicy: It is human nature to look forward to positive emotions and run away from negative ones, so much so that people are ashamed to even admit they are feeling any kind of negativity. But the truth is that negative emotions balance out the positivity, and help us cope better with the situations life throws at us.

        • Who: Deepak Gopalakrishnan
        • What: “When Did Flipkart Become The Bad Guy?”
        • Spicy: Online shoppers of yore would remember a time when Flipkart was the best destination to buy books online and was a site which gave off homely vibes. Now that Flipkart has turned into a huge company, its mistakes and negative publicity have also increased exponentially. This blogger charts the journey of this e-commerce giant.

        • Who: Sandeep Patil
        • What: “Missing the (Maharashtra) point”
        • Spicy: The Maharashtra government is under fire for its back-to-back decisions of banning beef and now asking multiplexes to screen Marathi movies mandatorily.  While the entire Twitterverse is busy criticizing the government, this blogger tries to provide an alternative perspective.

        • Who: Ashish Shakya
        • What: “The Top Ten Million Things To Hear When You’re 30”
        • Spicy: Turning 30 is a huge milestone for every youngster, where your freedom to make mistakes and not be ‘settled’ is reduced considerably. People who turn 30 are supposed to be sorted and must have ticked off a lot of things from their bucket list, or so the listicles on the Internet would have us believe. Ashish Shakya writes a blog post lampooning all such articles, with a listicle of his own.

        • Who: Ramya Abhinand
        • What: “Is It Only My Womb?”
        • Spicy: Women in India are revered as Goddesses, not least for their ability to bear children. This fertility, while being a boon for most women, can also turn into a curse just as soon. Read this blog post about a blogger’s experience with this double edged sword.

        • Who: Sid Vee
        • What: “Richie Benaud. RIP.”
        • Spicy: Legendary Australian cricketer and commentator Richie Benaud passed away recently, leaving cricketers, fellow commentators and cricket enthusiasts to grieve in union. Read this blog post which pays a tribute to the rich career of this commentator with an unmatched style.

        • Who: Arnab Ray
        • What: “On Net Neutrality And Airtel Zero and Flipkart”
        • Spicy: The announcement of ‘Airtel Zero’ was met with a flurry of activity (mostly negative) on news and views sites, with everyone looking at it as the beginning of the end of net neutrality in India. Airtel and Flipkart (who reportedly signed up for Airtel Zero) were blasted on social media sites. While the debate still rages on, Arnab Ray delves a little deeper and asks if the fuss is all worth it.
