If hard work does not entitle us to fat bonuses, perhaps our “talent” does? This is the third in the series of posts based on an upcoming column of mine in the Wilmott Magazine. Continue reading
Another old gem from my newspaper columns collection, this post talks about email duels that all of us have gone through at some point in our career. Enjoy! Continue reading
Bush has just left the building. Perhaps the world will be a kinder, gentler place now. But it will certainly be a less funny place. For life is stranger than fiction, and Bush was funnier than any stand-up comedian. Jon Stewart is going to miss him. So will I. Continue reading
I have been doing a bit of geeky stuff lately — writing Wordpress plugins. That made me think… We all started off as geeks, didn’t we? What’s the use denying it? Remember how the teachers loved us, and the sexy cheerleaders, well, didn’t? During our moments of panic, we go back to our geeky roots. At least, I do. Continue reading
This one is a hilarious piece I found on the Web. If you really like it, you have to wonder — am I still doing too much techie stuff and too little management? Continue reading

I wrote this piece on the World Malayalee Conference 2008 for a Singaporean newspaper. I was away in India during the conference (22-25 August, 2008) and did not see it in print.

Is man one of God’s blunders? Or is God one of man’s blunders? Why would Nietzsche say a thing like that? Here are my thoughts. Continue reading
Richard Feynman on physics and sex. My serious and not-so-serious thoughts on the words of the great man, aptly described as ‘No Ordinary Genius.’ Continue reading
If you have to ask what in the world a Malayali is, then this post is not for you! This one came as email flotsam and was too funny to pass up. In other words, if you are a Malayali and find this one a bit offensive, trust me, I didn’t write it! Must have been a North Indian lobby! Continue reading
Another of my French “redactions,” this piece is a translation of a joke, which perhaps didn’t translate too well. I was told that the French version was in poor taste. Now, reading it again, I feel that the English version doesn’t fare much better. You be the judge! Continue reading
Another one of my early “redactions” describing a rich girl’s perspective of what poverty is all about. Enjoy! Continue reading
One of my “redactions” for my French courses. My fellow students and teacher loved it, hope you will too.
Les fermiers aux Etats Unis ont de la chance – ils ont de grandes fermes. Ce n’est pas le cas en Mexique. Mais, le Mexicain de qui je vais vous parler, etait assez content de sa ferme. Une fois, un fermier texan est venu chez notre Mexicain.[...] Continue reading
