life on her own terms
a hot summer day, some time back, I paid a visit to Amrita Pritam at her
home in New Delhi. It was a memorable experience. For long, I had
harboured a keen desire to have a face-to-face talk with the versatile
genius who had dared to live life on her own terms, with love as the
sole guiding force in her life and the pen as her only weapon. Her
emotions find portrayal in her works.
tourist guides misguide
tourist guides are a strange lot. You can find them at any historical
site lurking in the shadows- a motley group of shabbily dressed hawks
eyeing every arrival from a distance. The moment a foreigner shows up,
they would be all over the place, ready to tear him apart.

wars. Till it is too late. Take the daily tussle between the raincoat
and umbrella loyalists. I refuse to believe the driving rain can blind
the world to the dangers of the situation.
