Why doesn’t MTV play music videos anymore?

Why doesn’t MTV play music videos anymore?

Nov 22, 2012

Getting attention and getting people to notice oneself among all the noise and chaos is the most crucial step towards making oneself a good market in the media industry. It such a challenge to get that hint of attention especially when it has become very important to embrace every fine point and correct every flaw. Inadvertently it pretty much seems that MTV...

Violence and Literature – Realities of North East India

Violence and Literature – Realities of North East India

Oct 24, 2012

Violence can and, is a recurring motif in Literature. It is emblematic of a disorder and chaos which jeopardizes thought processes and militates against happenings, which in turn is reflected in Literature and Art, Violence then is a means in attaining a higher end of aesthetics and the subliminal.

Munchies

Munchies

Aug 10, 2012

A great case of the munchies. They call this town the ‘scotland of the east’ but isn’t that a lil lofty much? Filled with greenery but no place to bask in the sun while we enjoy our food. Unless you don’t mind driving back and forth to kyrdemkhla or laitlynkot, which I may point out has become quite a noisy picnic stop for many. Sad to...

Go Boho!

Go Boho!

Jul 24, 2012

Worn-out of the look which seems to be samey and quite too intended for a muddled person like you? (gags ).Then it’s certainly high time to get some hippies going on this summer as I believe the bohemian look is the hottest trend of the moment. The Gypsy inspired style, ethnic patterns and the ’70s hippie touch that gives a certain allure of...

Support Independent Music

Support Independent Music

May 11, 2012

I spend a ridiculous amount of time thinking about the Independent music scene, and particularly the new independent music scene. This is partly because I am an independent music supporter, and partly because I write on music scene and stuff. I’ve also got a natural interest in patterns and systems (and the independent music scene is one). I like watching...

A bite of art

A bite of art

Apr 29, 2012

How far can you go in search for inspiration? I travelled as far as London. Let art, music, theatre, food, history burst open before my eyes to discover that all of it existed in pockets of Shillong, in bits and pieces, in fragments strewn around that most often go unnoticed. It is like a running stream of water under the earth just waiting and keeping...

Love is in the Hair

Love is in the Hair

Apr 10, 2012

Let it loose. Tie it up. Go shabby with an afro. Chop it down.  Wanna try dreadlocks?  Colour it up .  Make a coontail. Dye it black. Or simply stay au naturale. The choice is endless and all yours. One thing we absolutely love to toy around with is our hair. Its like the endless war of maintaining what we are already blessed with against the countless...

Are you a Freeloader?

Are you a Freeloader?

Feb 11, 2012

The loudness of their voices increases in direct proportion to the thunderous roar of an audience at a concert area. These are those people who’re likely to start a moshpit even at a folk music concert. Well, here I take the privilege to introduce to you all “The Freeloaders”  😀 . Every time I go to a concert I’d see innumerable back t shirt clad...
