The Daltons at 404 Andheri

It was some random Facebook post which got us connected. Jey doesn’t even remember the post but he vividly remembers that Sriram said something which Jey could relate easily. Jey came home and told Meenakshi, ‘Do you know there is always a connection with people. you know that Jharkhand feeling.’ Meenakshi smiled and said, ‘seems[…]

Opening more Openings…for art

Journey to Jaisalmer was a memorable ride. Fantastic broad roads, bright sun, deep blue clear sky and sandy soil occasionally dotted with mustered farms. Many a time Jey had to stop on road abruptly. No …there were no traffic lights but large herds of sheep, families of Neel Gai, pair of camels or peacocks were[…]

Lodarwa: Red Sun & Orange moon

“Who all are there in your family?”, Meenakshi asked just before entering the house of our host Sumer in Lodrawa, Jaisalmer. “…..My parents, my two elder brothers, their wives and two nephews.” “Ok”. We rode 20 kms away from Jaisalmer city to reach this village. For these 20 kms we experience desert in true sense;[…]

Moments make you what you are…

Dasna jail broke all the myths we had about a jail. Actually till now, we had seen jails only in films. We expected the scenes of dreaded criminals, bad food, stern jailers beating the prisoners and barracks overflowing with shit. Contrary to that, we found a very neat and clean jail campus where bad elements[…]

Helping them Dream…

“What is your name?” They looked up at their teacher seeking their tacit approval and then said meekly, “Balbir”.

”meeting people in this age is a great thing”
