Reopening Schools Mid June is such a bad idea !

ऑगस्ट महिन्यात मी भूतानला गेले होते. Rather, मला जायला मिळालं ते एका साहित्य संमेलनाच्या निमित्ताने. Mountain Echoes या नावाचा एक English Literary Festival. तीन दिवसांच्या या पुस्तकी discussions नंतर मी ठरवलं भूतानच्या 10,000 फूट उंचीवर असलेल्या ताकसांग मोनॅस्ट्रीला भेट द्यायची. हा ट्रेक भूतनीज लोकांसाठी खूपच auspicious आणि बाकी पर्यटकांसाठी त्यांच्या फिटनेसची परीक्षा घेणारा. एका डोंगराच्या […]

All it took was just a call to get an appointment with Taufiq Qureshi. The world famous Indian Percussionist Taufiq Bhai. They say he introduced Indians to the instruments of percussion value. I think, the fact that i was introduced to him by Legendary Trilok Gurtu made a lot of difference to the way he remembered me, when I called […]

GIRIVIHAR 2014

न्यूजरूममधली गडबड म्हणजे रोजचीच गोष्ट. हा शो ऑन एअर कधी होणार. अरे यार ते शूट लाईन अप करायचंय. व्हिज्युअल्स काय जातायंत चेक कर. पण जानेवारीचे तीन-चार दिवस हा सगळा कल्लोळ फेड आऊट होतो. त्याचं कारण, गिरीविहार रॉक क्लाइंम्बिंग कॉम्पिटिशन. गिरीविहार ही एक गिर्यारोहणप्रेमींची संस्था आहे. संस्था, क्लब, ग्रुप असं काहीही म्हणा. पण ही लोक भन्नाट […]
