- Who: Durga Prasad Dash
- What: “Of Good and Evil”
- Spicy: Similar to the yin yang, the good and the evil are differentiated by a very thin line. They are the two parts that combine together to form life’s balance. None exists without the other. We might find it difficult to digest, but Durga brings to us mythical references put so aptly that one is left in awe and contemplation. Next time something bad happens, we do have an ulterior motive as our answer.
- Who: Ramya Rao P
- What: “When She Fell Ill“
- Spicy: Mothers are the pivot of the family’s wheel, keeping it in balance with their superpowers that let them multitask. She is responsible for every task, ranging from the tiniest of details to the huge decision making ones. What happens when the lifeline of the family falls ill? It won’t be wrong to say that almost everything comes to a standstill. Ramya jots down a beautiful poem and we hope her lady gets well soon!
- Who: Samparna Tripathy
- What: “Is parental care only a son’s prerogative?“
- Spicy: Our society is bound by many unspoken rules that are adhered to, without putting a single question mark ever. From dowry that still prevails as exchange of gifts to men being the sole guardians of their parents in old age, we have illogical rules written all over us. Today, when most of the parents bring up their kids as equals, why should the responsibility of parents in their old age be written under the son’s column? Here’s Samparna bringing up the much needed question!
- Who: Shivani Shourie
- What: “Karwachauth for an Army wife”
- Spicy: As women celebrated fasting for their loving husbands this Karwachauth, many missed the final ritual of having their husbands beside them. As our nation’s proud soldiers guard us at the borders for our peaceful nights of sleep, their wives and family too, endure their absence in festivals and big days. What is Karwachauth like for an army wife who doesn’t get to see her heartthrob as other women end their fast with their beloved husbands? Shivani writes her heart out.
- Who: Niraj
- What: “Fathers Love”
- Spicy: The bond of love between a father and a daughter is one of the prettiest. While many accolades are showered on our mommies for the umbilical connect we share with them, daddies are often kept a metre away from the final trophy! While fathers maintain a strong front when it comes to emotions, their hearts too are brimming with equal affection and care for their little ones.
- Who: Aravind GJ
- What: “Bayon temple at Angkor Thom”
- Spicy: India has been showered with a rich culture and architectural heritage. When it comes to temples, India’s topography is a platter full of architectural marvels that still stand a winner in front of our technologically equipped building skills and creations. When the travelling eye meets the intrinsic creations at Angkor Thom, one has to pinch oneself to confirm its reality and not just a dream! Pinch yourself as we get you a virtual trip through Bayon temple.
- Who: Subha Rajagopal
- What: “The Coffee Mug“
