This is an article I wrote for a contest for a newspaper. It’s about the wonderful city I call home. Bangalore. Or as hardcore Kannadigas call it, Bengaluru. Unfortunately for me, it was not selected. So I thought I’ll share it here.
Feminism sucks! What is feminism anyway? Isn’t it anti-male propaganda? Women are victims. So what? Men are greater victims, aren’t they? Women have been shouting about “women issues” time and time again. Do we really need to hear it? It has been done to death. Women issues are just complaints. Why do they exaggerate everything? 90% of rape cases filed by women are false. It is just an attention-seeking tactic. Feminism only spreads hatred. Women blame men for their own inadequacies. Now where are the sandwiches?
I’ve become lazier than usual. Normally, I love to write. On my daily commute, my mind drifts off into a wondrous fantasy where all I do is read, and write. Then the driver brakes so hard that I am jolted back to reality, where I get an ample amount of time to do what pays the bills. I am reading whenever I get the time (I sound so white-collar, I know). Looking for Alaska was an impulse buy because I had heard so much about The Fault in Our Stars and John Green. And I tend to buy in the series.

Who doesn’t love to travel? Every one of us dreams of going to some exotic location to get rid of life’s tensions. And what better inspiration to rev up than good ol’ movies. This movie is a reboot of Dil Chahta Hai with an international twist. What’s common between Dil Chahta Hai and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara? Let us see.
The Great Indian Election Circus has ended in Karnataka. While some voted, some vetoed. Facebook is abuzz with pictures of inked fingers (thumbs, this year). People proud of having done their part in choosing a leader who will bring the country out of its misery. The winner has already been decided by popular polls and media hype. I am just glad that this drama will finally come to an end on 16th May 2014. I can finally skim through Facebook without having to look at fanboy posts about their favourites. And what fanboys they are!
