Fyodor Dostoyevsky And, it made me think. Not all people today know who the Russian novelist Dostoyevsky was, but they sure have figured out the truth of […]
I remember meeting this gentleman like it was yesterday. Such was his hospitality and warmth. It all happened when I along with two other classmates decided to get a cup of coffee at cafe coffee day. Our food was brought to us by this waiter. He came and stood in front of us with the […]
A Brief History… Prostitution has existed in all parts of the World at some point in time. Looking into its history is a mind-boggling task indeed.

I have always planned things in advance and then come to a point where these things that once made me want to JUMP! out of excitement, don’t seem exciting any longer. I have faced this problem for the better part of my teens and still do now in my twenties. I have constantly found myself […]
I think its safe to say that we all are procrastinators in some or the other way. But imagine this, you have to present the Life and work of Adolf Dassler (founder of Addidas) to an audience of more than 50 people at 9 A.M. the next day. At 00:00 – with much planning you […]
