The recent spree of racial attacks on the people of Northeastern states in some parts of the country, particularly Delhi, have left me in a state of shock and grief. What infuriated me so much is that we are being forced to live in fear even in our own country.

Don't you feel glad when you see an older couple sharing time with each other on a park bench hand in hand, or a newly-wed couple sharing a lovable kiss and embracing each other?

Louis van Gaal has endured the worst possible start for Manchester United in its 28-year history, as the English giants lie at a dismal 10th position after 10 games this season. Sadly, after a hefty summer signing spree, United's defensive woes have rocked van Gaal's start at the club.

When Team India won the most coveted ICC trophy in 2011, for the second time in its history, this time under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, it was full of players who had a reputation of being match-winners.

Public display of affection, or PDA as we popularly call it, is yet to find acceptance in the society that we dwell in. The recent 'kiss of love' campaign by some of the volunteers in Kerala, protesting against the moral police, has proved that India, as a nation, is not prepared to allow its citizens to indulge in such physical intimacy in public and rightly so.

Many a times I have come across mundane people bombarding me with their bizarre questions inquiring `Why am I still single`?
This is a question which even I may not have thought deeply into, as it seriously does not bother me. But repeated queries (some of them heavy with concern) from my social circle have set the rational wheels of my brain churning for an answer.

India is my favourite place on earth. Where else will you find landscapes as contradictory to each other within 500 kilometres? There are snow-capped mountains and vast sand deserts, beautiful waterfalls and exotic virgin beaches, all in one country. India is a place where colours are a riot of emotions and people are welcoming.

Never a die-hard fan, but I have always admired this charming fellow from Delhi. My favourite Shah Rukh Khan moment was his introductory scene in ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ where he plays rugby in the rain. I guess every SRK fan fell for him in that movie. Maybe, the credit goes more to Aditya Chopra than to SRK himself.

FIFA announced its shortlist for the 2014 Ballon d'Or awards on Tuesday. The award is football's equivalent of Hollywood's Oscars. Like always, the 23-man list in contention for one of world football's most coveted prize raised a furore.

After the summer departure of Liverpool's talisman Luis Suarez to Barcelona, manager Brendan Rodgers had a mighty task in his hands to fill up the void left by their star forward. In came Southampton's Rickie Lambert and AC Milan's Mario Balotelli. The latter was expected to be their new showman alongside Daniel Sturridge.

If you don't consider his record in Test matches, especially overseas, MS Dhoni is someone who has led the Indian cricket team exceptionally well over the years in ODIs.

Recently, I was having a conversation with some of my friends about ‘missed calls’, a term that may be alien to many people across the world, but not to Indians for sure. What struck me was the amazement that some of them displayed about many of us considering this as a means of communication. This got me into thinking whether we had actually developed a new means of communication.

“Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.” - Salvador Dalí
Each of us has often heard people discussing perfection and what we could do to try and become “perfect”. We often assume that everything around us is either black or white, and seldom acknowledge or appreciate the existence of greys.

With the crème de la crème of Indian festivals — Diwali — just around the corner, I can only but feel a sense of alienation as I see everyone around me hatching plans with their family for the celebration of light.
Well, of course, I do take part in the festivities, but staying away from home does take away the true meaning of this festival.

After scoring his 20th One-Day hundred against West Indies at Dharamshala, Virat Kohli has booked a place in the pantheon of batting greats.

“The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting,” said noted artist Andy Warhol.
Bollywood seems to have taken his words to heart. It has become the new mantra in Bollywood to get the audience chock-full of anticipation for an upcoming film, and the new fad has even surpassed the old one of numerology-induced crazy spellings.

A shrill scream welcomed me in the morning as I entered the ladies compartment of the Delhi metro. Unknowingly I had stepped onto someone's foot, and the nasty look which I received from the 'victim' convinced me I had committed a grave crime.

What is a player supposed to do, when despite being the highest scorer for his country in all formats of the game, he is sacked by his board, citing reasons, which are yet to be known? What is a player supposed to do, when his own team-mates create a parody account on Twitter by his name?

'Who is Kailash Satyarthi?' was the first reaction from all and sundry when his name began trending on news and social media. While many of us know who Malala Yousafzai is, we hardly know about this man who was shrouded in anonymity until the colossal Nobel Prize was conferred upon him.

There is a joke amongst Bengalis – if you want a day off, just start shouting 'cholbe na cholbe na! inqilaab zindabad!', on the streets and the entire city will come to a halt. No one is going to ask you why you are protesting, rather they will just join you. In fact, if you can establish that you are protesting against a meagre 50 paise rise in bus ticket prices, you might get a week off.

During the IPL 7 auctions, while other franchises frantically paid hefty sums to bid for world class cricketers, Punjab never seemed to be in a hurry as they had done their home work.
