Seeing through The London Eye

Some times I wonder if The London Eye is really an eye, a spectator, a witness to all that is happening around him. It feels like he is standing there watching upon us, guarding us, protecting us. At times it seems as if he is spying on us, furtively eavesdropping on our dirty little secrets, selling us out to the foes.As it’s aging it’s getting wiser, more intellectual, more tolerant and maturer. He is used to being an excellent listener, hearer of stories told and untold, a shoulder to many in times of distress, a symbol of hope to...

Love is London

People say England is the village of Europe and same goes for London automatically. No matter what people say London will always be my love. The smell of its streets always lingers around me.

Now if we look at the...

Sherlock is the new sensation

Sherlock is the new sensation, all over again. When I say Sherlock, I really don’t mean The Hollywood Sherlock franchise starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. The BBC series Sherlock has been a massive success over the past four years. Though it was started as a small adventurous trick play on Sir A. Conan Doyle’s works but it turned out to be a great hit. There is only one complaint the viewers have been making since the end of series 1, that is, the directors make us wait far too long; the excruciatingly painful wait. Most of the...
