Plan B | Apurva Purohit

Nobody seems to have a ‘plan b’ in their lives these days and certainly not the younger generation for sure. While traveling to school, we used to be given extra money for our fare in case the bus didn’t come, and back-up money to be hidden in an inner pocket,...

Of old friends and cozy blankies | Apurva Purohit

I had occasion to go for a dear friend’s son’s wedding recently. Yes! The decade of attending children’s weddings has well and truly begun! As we spent the three days in fun and frolic (in a sedate manner let me hasten to add, given the decade I am referring to)...

Why Men Stretch the Truth! | Apurva Purohit

We were driving into Chennai from Bangalore for a wedding last weekend, and the journey which was supposed to take around five hours, took seven hours instead. This was because dear husband does not believe in maps, GPS, Google or in signposts. He tells me he relies on his inner...

Foster Baby | Apurva Purohit

Winston – Tinku flew off yesterday and once again I felt the pangs of being an empty nester! For the last few months, I have watched with great interest a pair of hawks diligently building a nest just outside my window, then laying an egg, sitting patiently over it for...

Oh my online delivery – where art thou? | Apurva Purohit

Sheepishly but openly, I hereby admit to all of you that I am an extremely new entrant on to the online shopping bandwagon. In fact I was quite shocked to find out recently that Flipkart sells zillions of other things apart from books on the internet! Whilst daringly baring all,...

Dear men, on this women’s day

Do me a favour! Don’t give the women in your life flowers, chocolates, inane messages on what’s app or diamonds! (ok, ok I’ll make an exception on diamonds). Instead make an effort to listen to them, or better still, make an effort to ask them to speak up! A McKinsey...

The Finger of Fidelity | By Apurva Purohit

Apparently scientists and researchers have made a stunning discovery recently that fidelity in humans depends on the length of their ring finger in proportion to their index finger! While the obvious irony, that it is the finger which is normally used to display the universal symbol of holy matrimony, has...

Where have all the Adults Gone? | Apurva Purohit Blog

“My 16 year old daughter and I often wear each other’s clothes”, says a 40-something acquaintance smugly, simpering at herself and her toned, lithe and spandexed image in the mirror, as we both stand next to each other in the ladies’ loo at the wedding we are attending. “My 18...

Caste | Apurva Purohit Blog

The caste of mankind perhaps? “But then you got married out of caste after all” , said my neighbour’s mom dismissively, shaking her head at my complete lack of knowledge or interest in the ceremonial rituals surrounding the festival of the month. Indians, as you may all know, have a...

Letting Go | Apurva Purohit

Birthdays and year-ends, I think need to be a time for spring cleaning of some sort. The baggage we have collected over the year, the clutter we have amassed, it’s time to look at each item anew and decide to junk it or keep it. But letting go somehow is...

The Code of Hammurabi | Apurva Purohit

Approximately in 1772 BC lived a great Babylonian king in Mesopotamia called Hammurabi. He is famous for having evolved and enacted what is possibly the oldest code of law. Or at least the oldest code which was written down and still exists and has been subsequently deciphered. Justice ordained that...

Toilets for Girls | Apurva Purohit

In the last two weeks I have been party to at least two drawing-room and one corporate conversation around building toilets for girls. So someone I know wants to build 15 toilets this year in municipal schools in his area. Another person wants to send money to an NGO specifically...
