I cannot believe more than 9 months have passed since the last episode of Coffee Chronicles. Much coffee has flown from the machine since then. As a result, some events that I had made a mental note of, would have got lost somehow. But this episode, the last in Season 1 of Coffee Chronicles, will… Continue reading Coffee Chronicles Episode 9: Part 1- Of cups and cameras
Some wise man had once remarked, “Balloons may come and balloons may go, but celebrations go on forever.” After a general mandate ousted the balloons as a means of celebrating any milestone, things have been different on the floor. It might also have to do with the transfer of the proponent of balloons as a… Continue reading Coffee Chronicles Episode 8: ‘Dumb Charades’

All sorts of quirkiness in human… Continue reading Coffee Chronicles Episode 4: Ballooning Woes-I

A trip to the coffee room makes my day. Also thanks to some of the finest lyrics I have ever set my eyes on.
