What are being referred to here? What else, but the nemesis of every student and the survival secret of lecturers: THE TEXTBOOKS. Come July, and it’s that time of the year again when students are forced to give into the lecturers demands and throng to the bookshops for the best possible (used, cheapest) deals on their textbooks....

“Oh! Isn’t life a terrible thing, thank God?”. This statement was quoted by an earthling by the name Dylan Thomas. How true its essence is in today’s times! For the average citizen, activity is the norm of the day. We wake up, we slog, we sleep; We roar, we fiddle, we meddle; We spurt, we dream, we conquer; We forget, we fret, we cry; We punish, we pester, we persist, we exist. So lost are we in an imaginary illusion that we, sometimes, curse our relentless endurance. So obsessed are we with our savoir-vivre (social ambition) that we,... Read→

Yeah, it’s a two-in-one word, but pretty apt. You will know what I am talking about if you go and check out Bank Street in Koti. Bank Street plausibly hosts the city’s best pirated DVDs and VCDs sale. Go to Koti and ask anyone on the road about cheap DVDs, they’ll usher you to Bank street. The entrance of the street is dingy and dirty, but you will be spellbound by the crowd there. You will not generally, even find place to stand. Every shop here owns and sells the latest movies to the most expensive games at the cheapest price. You don’t... Read→
