Stereotyping : A common problem #81

“… your name please?” “Progga…” “Sorry, what?” “Pragya… P-r-a-g-y-a” “You are a Bengali right? Obhijit, Obhishek… ‘O’s everywhere”.The guy burst out in laughter thinking how funny he was. As a Bengali working in a multural cultural workplace I am used to these stereotypes. Today I want to take this opportunity to explain everything that is […]

My first visit to Bangalore: visiting Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Temple #80

Last month(coincidentally last year) I happened to travel to Bangalore with my family. It was a short trip for 2 days. My family is not at all into travelling so I didn’t have much expectation from the 2 days’ trip. The first day I had to accompany my parents and didn’t have any time left […]

Dark Confessions from Life #64

Since my last confession post, I was kind of feeling better. I haven’t made any confession on internet before, not even in sarahah! I am always skeptical about the admins of the confession pages.
