Would it be more exciting to book a ticket to the moon, or are we were better off staring at the sky, and not knowing what lies beyond?
The food we eat is nourishment for the body and the soul. We share an intimate relationship, one that we carry till the very end. It must not be tinged with fear, anxiety or fatigue.
Since vaccine shortage and a sharp rise in infections continue to inflict suffering and death, is it time to rethink Intellectual property rights policy?
The death of a loved one is usually marked by an elaborate set of rituals. It is how we cope, across cultures, and through the ages.
If love could be defined, dictated, or curated by an algorithm or app, it would perhaps lose its magic. And meaning.
Recently the Centre told the Delhi High Court that ‘our laws, our legal system, our society and our values do not recognise marriage…between same-sex couples’. They are not alone. This sentiment is echoed by many others.
Facebook has been criticised for its handling of hate speech. It’s an issue that it has been grappling with for years, as so much can lie in between. But the world of social media keeps evolving, so should the rulebook.
Social media can be used to create a sense of belonging among the participants. It is the first step towards mobilising a socially and geographically dispersed community – women.
It is up to us as individuals, corporations and governments to take ownership of the future. We must remember to recover and rebuild responsibly.
The elephant death in Kerala is one instance of animal cruelty which is visually so powerful that it has sparked chain reactions, bringing awareness, causing discomfort, and raising questions about our actions.
It is easy to blame the boys. After all, they are old enough to understand the basic values of respect and consent. But that doesn’t really solve an age old problem of patriarchal mindset and sexist attitude, which continues to linger from one generation to the next.

Our colour reflects our heritage, our family, genes and our lifestyle. It defines who we are. We need to accept our differences, especially in a country like India, that otherwise celebrates its diversity.
The real question here is whether the sky-high fines will truly be a deterrent. I am tempted to say yes, given the recent long queues at the RTO to update documents and the sudden spike in the sale of helmets.

The love and cheers that Charulata Patel received was not just because she was an enthusiastic cricket fan, but because she was an enthusiastic 87-year-old cricket fan. She broke through a stereotype, and India saluted her for that.
The younger generation prioritises work-life balance, they are more open to experimentation, learning and personal development even if it comes at the cost of a regular career growth path. Why should Zaira be any different?
India spends little over 1% of its GDP on healthcare, perhaps among the lowest in the world.
Some of the world’s best-known faces are openly gay. By choosing to liberate themselves, they also set an example both within their communities and around the world. But India still has a long way to go.
Inspired by the ancient network, President Xi Jingping announced the Belt Road Initiative (BRI) in 2013 - undoubtedly the most ambitious infrastructure investment project in world history
