Mangalore Pearl

22May16

All my life I stayed in coastal cities and seafood was part of almost every meal. Infact during the great lent (the 50 day fast before Easter during which non vegetarian food is not consumed), my dad declares fish is not considered non veg. I refrained from eating seafood when I moved to Bangalore, as […]


I have been to a couple of Bengaluru Football Club’s matches in Kanteerava stadium and on both occasions it rained. The roads were jammed with traffic swirling like a whirlpool with the stadium at its center. After such ordeal, I was getting comfortable in my slightly damp seat when the first goal was struck, I jumped […]


GuaRented

03Dec15

GuaRented is a website based service which rents out home appliances on a monthly basis. This makes little sense for me because if you are planning to stay at a place 6 months or more, you can own a second-hand unit which is what they are offering as well. But then again, this might turn out […]


Onam 2015

28Aug15

Onam is the harvest festival celebrated by Malayalees across the globe regardless of religion or caste. Last year I posted few restaurants where you can book your onam sadhya in Bangalore. This year I’ll be in Kerala to welcome the return of King Mahabali. To know more about King Mahabali and onam, visit this. Last year, […]


OnePlus decided to launch their new flagship phone through virtual reality. But rather than asking users to purchase VR wearables such as Oculus Rift, they have created their own VR unit of the likes of Google cardboard. The unit was sold out on amazon for Rs99 + shipping within minutes. I was lucky to be awake […]


ACT Fibernet has revealed their surprise and reset the ‘FUP’ (Fair Usage Policy) of all their customers. This means you get back your top speed and your download limit stats get  wiped clean for no extra cost. I’m not a fan of speed limiting policy embraced by the telecoms and this ‘act’ is openly welcomed. Happy downloading […]


Dyu Art Cafe

23Mar15

Fort Kochi’s Kashi Art Café is one the few places I used to take my out-of-town friends while I was in Kochi. I have spent many weekends wiling away my youth there. So it came as a pleasant surprise when I heard that they had opened Kashi in Koramangala. The Bangalore café is called Dyu […]


What do you do on a lazy weekday morning? The kind where you get a off day while the rest of the world works. I decided to have an IMAX experience and as luck would have it, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar was playing. I could hear my friend’s Yoda impression in the back of my head “Watch Interstellar, you […]


Bangalore Comic Con, in its third year, has gone bigger than ever. This time, the ample space at the White Orchid Convention Center near Manyatha Tech Park was taken over by comic fans and cosplayers for three days. I went on Day 2 hoping for lesser crowds since the location was a bit away from the city. […]

They are also know for their unprecedented number of 8 vocalists. After a performance in Dubai, the band is coming to St.John’s Medical […]
