Cover Story

Where Eagles Dare

In absolute distress when the chips are down; when systems have broken down, when no civic worker or state police force is within hundreds of miles, when the already minimal and overstretched infrastructure has collapsed and millions need to be rescued from certain death, it is India's defence forces that save the day for everyone – a grateful nation, its tunnel vision politicians and inept civilian administrations.

Book Review

Book Review - Dhandha: How Gujaratis Do Business

Movie Review

Movie Review : Despicable Me 2

Ishan Raychaudhuri

Last time Despicable Me was on the big screen, I loved every part of it. This time, even when the novelty is lost, it is fun enough to warrant a viewing, in fact multiple ones if you are a fan of animations.


Movie Review: Lootera

Ishan Raychaudhuri

Lootera is one of those films which makes me think Bollywood indeed is much more than cliched love stories, unrealistic plot lines and characters which leave a bad taste in the mouth.
