My Articles in the Bandra Buzz

It's been fun working with the Bandra Buzz newspaper for nearly a year. This monthly publication provides news and views on issues and topics related to Bandra and its adjoining suburbs. I have contributed several articles and even poems for them. My poem entitled "The Valentine's Day Blues" is one of my best. I had composed it literally overnight. Then I wrote about the bomb blasts in the heart of Mumbai, the Holi festival and the Bandra fair. I have covered the Diwali celebrations at the Khar Gymkhana for Bandra Buzz as well as the International Beer Festival held at the Bandra Gymkhana. You can find my work at the following URLs:

Bandra Buzz comes in an innovative design and format. It tackles local issues head-on and has been at the forefront of such issues as the demolition of crosses and the anti-corruption drive. You can subscribe for it or get copies from a host of vendors, restaurants and shops all over Bandra.

It’s quite amazing that in a book of sixty pages you have a list of poems (about twenty in number), a couple of short stories and essays that take on fascists, dictators, terrorists, Maoists and communal forces. In your book “Rose Gardens and Minefields”, you have written about Indian history, the menace of terrorism, the horror of the Naxalite movement, the current sports scene in India, the nuclear issue, secularism, the hostile acts of regional parties in Mumbai, and lots more. Your book certainly rocks and so do you!!!!!
