The Dark Knight is doubtlessly a cinematic masterpiece and the Joker is by all means one of the most intriguing negative characters to have ever come to life on the silver screen. The movie is remarkable not only in terms of characterization, but also because it deals with eternal human struggles once again without looking, feeling or sounding stale.

NISHANT: A Tale of Violent Re-ordering Movies

Those with means and influence tend to be adamant and oppressive apart from being almost completely indifferent to the miseries of the less-privileged.

Law in ‘Hot Pants’? Personal

Spat! I looked around. All looked fine. Smiling faces. Nodding faces. Talking faces. A student was scribbling in his notebook, a foreigner hunched over his Apple laptop, four girls sitting in a huddle giggling away at the far corner, a heavyweight female gorging on a Chocolate Fantasy loaded with two scoops of ice-cream, two immaculately dressed, middle-aged gentlemen having a discussion on some business project...

I Am Not A Terrorist Personal

He cast an odd glance at me, which turned into a stare and then into a scanner as he measured me up, head to toe. All I had done was ask him to look after my luggage for a short while so that I could come back relieved from the toilet. The four cups of coffee that I had downed during the hour I had...
