Your Computer Will Wear Glasses

You wake up in the morning with a hot cup of tea and grab your mobile to check your email. And then you remember that you’ve forgotten your glasses in the bathroom.

You get into your car. You reluctantly get your spectacles out to peer at the display on your car dashboard.

You’ve reached your workplace and get called to the Boss’s cabin. You realise that you can’t contribute much to the impromptu meeting, because well… your glasses are sitting safely on your desk!

Why does Alcohol cause Blurred Vision?

We have all had that one crazy friend whose histrionics are the stuff that legends are made of. Their crazy capers give you enough anecdotes to regale your friends, spouse, kids and even grand-children, years later. Brian was one such guy. His friends loved to narrate one incidence where Brian kept arguing with the store keeper if there was a buy-one-get-one-free offer on the two bottles of mineral water that had been stuck together. It took a lot of cajoling from his friends and a strong rebuke from the shopkeeper… The embarrassing truth? A very drunk Brian was seeing double!

Don't Turn Off The Lights

Mr. Sinha could not believe his eyes. How was this possible?

He rubbed his eyes. Wasn’t working. Still blurry.

Back to School

“Oh wow, Mamma Chhotaa Bheem!”

Mrs. Sinha watched her five-year old’s eyes widen with excitement at the Mall. Sushant was about to begin school and the mother-son duo had come to purchase his school supplies. As Sushant went gaga over everything Chhotaa Bheem (a much-loved cartoon character), Mrs. Sinha couldn’t help getting nostalgic about her own childhood. Ah! The excitement of the month of June! The aroma of fresh books. The elation of picking out new raincoats. The excitement of meeting old friends…

Is your Child ready for Contact Lenses?

No matter how calmly you try to referee, parenting will eventually produce bizarre behaviour, and I'm not talking about the kids. - Bill Cosby

Mrs. Shanbag could not help but smile amusedly as she read this quote in the magazine. It was cent per cent true when it came to Anaika, her 10 years old daughter. As she sat in the Pediatric Eye Doctor’s waiting area, Mrs. Shanbag recollected how she felt like she’d taken up a part time job as a referee. Sometimes, it was about getting Anaika and her brother to compromise on who would lord over the TV remote. At other times, it had been bargaining with Anaika at the mall over why she did not need a sixth pink teddy bear (But Mamma, I don’t have a pink teddy with a pink nose!).
