    INTERLUDE - Some Thoughts & A Tribute

    INTERLUDE - Some Thoughts & A Tribute

    A Tribute. Taking a moment to reflect on the last couple of months. Tough. Happy. Insightful. Resilient. Irrevocably sad. Unnervingly real. And a tribute to the human spirit, yet again.

    Segue into Season 3: GROWING UP PUNJABI!

    Segue into Season 3: GROWING UP PUNJABI!

    This podcast is an attempt to explore my intense curiosity about anything and everything. So, I also want to talk about anything and everything. It is a North Indian nobody’s story, yet it could be something of everybody’s. From growing up in the pre-liberalization India of the 80s and 90s, in a crazy Sikh family, I couldn’t have asked for a broader or more fun spectrum of experiences to recount. And recount I intend to. This whimsical, zigzagging life o' mine, served with a large helping of self-deprecation, a smattering of unavoidable sarcasm, some honesty and lots of laughs at my own expense, I hope. Gravitas, if you will, with an extremely light touch. Happy listening!
    While Season One was stories from my struggle with the debilitating Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS); Season Two was all about my experiments with online dating and dating apps, with a couple of viewpoints thrown in!
    Season Three is all about...Growing Up Punjabi! I hope you enjoy listening to it!

    Season Two Wrap Up: I wish you love. 💕

    Season Two Wrap Up: I wish you love. 💕

    The lockdown has a been a great time to just connect with a lot of people and their stories. Of love, heart break, eternal quests, breathless hookups, patient romances, short confessions and long conversations. And I’ve been soaking it all up! But it's started to get to me - this forced confinement for the second year in a row. With nothing but a short and wonderfully blissful break of a few months in between, as I recovered from the GBS and rediscovered myself. Alas, there seems to be no respite from this round of being home bound. And I find myself trying to reinvent, yet again.    For now, I have deleted all the dating apps i was on, except Bumble. Well, what can I say? I like Bumble. A lot, and can't find it in myself to say goodbye to my sunny friend!    So long, online dating....I'll catch up with you and, when I do, be kind will ya?!

    Hangups, Hookups & Hangovers: A Chat with an Old Friend

    In this episode, part of the online dating series of Season Two...I talk to my old friend - Shivraj - an openly gay man who came out at a time when others were afraid to. It hasn’t been easy, but online dating apps today have made it a lot of fun. Perils exist, so it pays to be cautious and a tad judgemental, he tells me. We talk about profiles, pictures, ghosting, ageism, yardsticks and much much more...Tune in, will ya?!!

    Quest for “The One”: Magic, Myth, or Madness?

    Quest for “The One”: Magic, Myth, or Madness?

    So, what's your quest? Oh and...What does Maneesh think??   I often wonder just how many of us are still searching for “the one”? It’s true that some of us have found that person, some have loved and lost, while others have just been plain unlucky in the quest that, deep down inside, most of us are on - at least at some time or the other in our lives. Everyone’s quest for THE ONE is different. There is no rule book. There is no single definition. There is no mould you need to fit them into, or break them out of. Well, here I don't mean a "friend" but someone you’re attracted to. Someone with whom you can be yourself. No masks. (Except for now!). No take backs. No judgement. No filters. And no guilt. Hence for me, single men!

    Sweep. Search. Swipe. ♾

    Sweep. Search. Swipe. ♾

    THIS EPISODE IS DEDICATED TO PRIDE MONTH 2020. Love is often brutal, unexpected and searingly indifferent to the chains that seek to bind it. May it forever roam free. And back to this season on dating online, I guess it’s not the dating apps’ fault when you have everyone looking for something often quite elusive out there – some for something specific, others for anything at all to break the monotony of their lives.  I’m no different. Especially in this lockdown, this unnatural state of limbo we've been forced into. This podcast season was born out curiosity - my own, and that of my friends’ later on - to understand what the dating scene in India had become while we were all busy building marriages, adjusting their careers and/ or bringing up children.
