Mumbai

They say the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks are young men between the ages 20 to 25.My brother will turn 21 day after tomorrow.Whose kid brothers are out there, taking people hostage? Killing indiscriminately?I don’t know…everyone I’ve talked to is trying to turn this into a conspiracy theory; whereas I keep imagining Hani (my brother) … Continue reading

The Riddle of Bob Dylan

When you watch ‘I’m not there’, keep an open mind. If you are ‘all there’ you won’t be able to survive the first few minutes, so turn off the DVD player after reading the title and put on Grey’s Anatomy. This movie will kill you.But if you aren’t, keep moving forward. Pay attention. To the … Continue reading

Husn e Bazaar-aan

Saddar is the heart of Karachi. Whenever my father goes hazy over the days when he would walk from Manora cottage (ancestral home which by some weird family conspiracy was sold off and is now a block of flats) to Urdu bazaar and back before breakfast, he almost manages to convince me of a time … Continue reading

But the minute I press the power button, … Continue reading

Big Foot in an alternate universe

Nothing makes me happier than watching the hot person die at the end of a movie, other than having her/him die in the beginning. Beautiful people scare me. If they talk to me I wonder what their hidden, stuck-up, pain-in-the-ass agenda is; if they ignore me I know it’s because they’re stuck-up-pains-in-the-ass anyway. Nothing is … Continue reading
