A detailed guide to buying a property in India for NRIs

Without any doubt, a lavish lifestyle overseas may attract people to become an NRI but a connection with the root is something that gets a sense of belongingness very essential for continuation. Besides these, there are quite a few other reasons for an NRI to invest in India. Few of them are lower cost of homes compared to the costs of the country they reside in or other developing countries. Moreover, the rate of price rise of real estate has always been more in India than that of the develope...

6 Ways to Sharpen Your Pencils

Editor’s note: This is a guest article from TJ Cosgrove. You’ve likely never given much thought to pencils (though you really should!). Likewise, you’ve probably never lent much thought to how to sharpen your pencils, defaulting to whatever was on hand. But much like pencils themselves, pencil sharpeners are a rich and detailed rabbit hole into which you can easily fall, should you find yourself drawn to minutia and the perfection of craft. There are many different ways to sharpen a pencil, an...

Muncherji Murzban and the Restoration of Lal Chimney: Parsi Social Housing

TO practice conservation in Mumbai, one must be lucky to have the right client who understands and sympathizes with the word ‘conservation’.

Article by Ar. Vikas Dilawari Unusually, this trust believed in repairing and maintaining a heritage property rather than in demolition and redevelopment, and in...

Five lost England Test cricketers of the 2010s

Haseeb Hameed (via YouTube) In another universe, these five cricketers are the backbone of the England Test team. A handful of players make it in Test cricket. Others get picked and aren’t good enough. Then there are the weird ones; the ones who get a few games, look the business and then for some weird reason or another disappear again when you were absolutely convinced that they’d become fixtures in the side. Here are five players who seemed for all the world like they we...

How Do I Heal My Marriage from My Infidelity?

From a man in Peru: I proposed an open relationship to my wife for years (from the very start of our relationship) and she usually said no, was sometimes ambivalent or was sometimes inclined to say yes. We never got around to agreeing on the matter. We got married just last year after a long relationship of 13 years and I branched out of our relationship before the wedding, having five one-night stands. After our honeymoon, I confessed to one of the infidelities and she reacted negatively, but n...

Digital Zoroastrian at the British Library

The British Library is fortunate in having an unparalled collection of over 100 Zoroastrian works ranging from the oldest, the ninth century Ashem Vohu prayer written in Sogdian script discovered by Aurel Stein in Central Asia in 1907, to, most recently, manuscripts collected especially for the Royal Society in London during the late-nineteenth century.

RIP Kobe. Thank You, Kobe!

So last night, I was in the zone where I was sad and angry and depressed. About things and life in general. To a point where I was questioning the meaning of life and all that.

No, I do not enjoy human company when I am in a mood like that.And while on twitter, I saw this tweet.Now, I don't know Kobe. But I knew of Kobe.

How to Kill Innovation in India using Customs

I did my engineering from 1998 to 2012. It used to be very difficult to get the latest and greatest in the electronics world from the local market. My go-to way to get something interesting was to apply for freebies from companies in the USA, whether it was PICs from Microchip or the latest Linux CDs. I would apply and then wait. It would take time but it would arrive at home safely. I used to get frustrated by this waiting time. Sometime it would take up-to three months. Twenty years later ship...

In Kolkatta Dharmashala stands, but not many travellers as the community shrinks

A leftover of time but living testament to the Parsis in Kolkata. “Manackjee Rustomjee Dharmashala for Parsi travellers” — the inscription in an old-fashioned font on the doorway transports one to the days when accommodation wasn’t pre-booked online and travel itself was fraught with uncertainties.

India’s brilliant Bombay duck

When I was a little girl growing up in Bombay, June was the month I looked forward to the most. It was the month when the charred, inky monsoon clouds, clipped with streaks of lightning, brushed away the fetid summer heat. It was when I went back to school with my new books, wrapped carefully in crackling-new brown paper. Best of all, June was also the month for the Bombay duck to grace the kitchens of Parsi homes such as mine. This delicious monsoon specialty, which is most plentiful and easies...

Soli Sorabjee: We celebrate the life and legacy of Nani Palkhivala

Nusli Wadia battled Ambanis and Tatas and lived to tell the tale

The $7 billion Nusli Wadia Wadia, who was once called as the epitome of South Bombay’s old money and genteel respectability, has been a part of many corporate brawls during 1970s and 1980s.
