Who had the Last Laugh?

  He appeared seriously disgruntled, head down, hands on his hips, contemplating the futility with a shake of his head, before reluctantly advancing towards the dressing room. Yes! I’m talking about Gianluigi Buffon. Someone who made his debut over 20 years ago and has been a role-model and motivator on and off the pitch. Throughout its journey from stardom to darkness and back to the very top, one name remained constant, Gianluigi Buffon. ZINEDINE ZIDANE: “ Say that again?”     9th July 2006.

The Boss of all Dishes

The craving, sorry the ‘lust’ began way back in 2011. As the bell rang on a Wednesday afternoon, as it glorified the lunch break, a student’s favourite hour of the day, the first thing we did was ask each other if we had enough cash.

A Guide To heartbreak

  Have you ever thought about what’s the best thing that could happen to anyone? Heartbreak! Yes, heartbreak. It sounds strange when you put it down in so many words. I am not a sadist who thinks that heartbreak is the kind of thing that should happen to humankind. But it is also true that while to you it is the biggest catastrophe, to the world it’s just another cliché. Heartbreaks, I believe, need not always have another human being as the cause. It could be the fact that you…
