The print isn’t dead while we can't ignore Digital either. If robots take up writing jobs in future, this portfolio may still make some sense as all the write-ups mentioned below is written manually by a human and he made a genuine effort to solve problems, intrigue people with ideas and make you saner amidst all the man-made chaos.

Here’s a list of articles that got published and I frankly feel accomplished.

We are living in interesting times when humanity is taking a big leap in technology. Technology and science are mingling peacefully with art and literature and we are the most advanced generation of all-time because we are the pioneers and the early adopters of technology like the Internet, Augmented Reality, 3D Printing.

Under the Watch | September 28, 2018 | The Assam Tribune

Everyone in China will be monitored, tracked and ranked according to their habits, interactions, behavior etc. by 2020. The cameras will follow everyone and they will be ranked accordingly. Sounds like a plot from the dystopian Sci-fi episode of 'Black Mirror’s Nosedive but it's actually becoming a reality in China by 2020. You can't escape the constant gaze of Big Brother in China. You can't do anything that violates the rules and if done, your points will get deducted.


World of Dreams | June 29, 2018 | The Assam Tribune

Dreams are intriguing, some dreams exude horror, some dreams take you outer spaces and few of them make you confused as hell. Are we inside a dream or a real reality? Dreams that are often indistinguishable, dreams look almost real. What if you are actually inside a dream while reading this piece? What if you are under the influence of something or someone so gravely that you lose your mind and begin hallucinating every time? What if your life is nothing but an extended dream? Dreams come from various influences, conscious and subconscious. 



Digitally Immortal | May 11, 2018 | The Assam Tribune 

What if we are already living in a computer simulation? What if we are controlled by some ultra-sophisticated technology? What if we are creating simulated realities within the overall simulation? What if even the powerful people on this earth are just a part of the whole simulation? What if there is no history of Earth? What if we are just virtual bodies hanging around in this virtual place and our main bodies or consciousness are just stored somewhere in the cloud? What if our whole existence is nothing but a lie?

The Lonely Millennials | Nov 24, 2017  | The Assam Tribune

“I need friends” – as Flash (Ezra Miller) in the recently released Justice League tells Batman (Ben Affleck) while giving his consent in joining the League. Even superheroes are lonely in the modern age hence we can’t ignore the growing emptiness amid the people living in this urban jungle.


Scream Rooms for the Lone Wolf | Nov 18, 2016 | The Assam Tribune

The skyscrapers will always make you feel small. You will be reduced to the size of an ant but the growth of those structures won't stop. The future world may look much more advanced but there will be less soul. The connection between people will only happen virtually.


City of Clones | Aug 5, 2016 | The Assam Tribune

Imagine a city in future where everyone looks identical. The females have no one to be jealous of and the males look muscular and uniformly handsome. Everyone in the city looks indistinguishable. Imagine a man entering the city of clones and finding everyone staring at him because he looks like an alien to them. The man makes his way to the church and finds clones everywhere. Human cloning is an unethical process of going against the nature to subdue uniqueness but what if the residents of the city of clones never knew about the outer world where everyone looks different.


Whither Immortality? | Jun 3, 2016 | The Assam Tribune

Imagine life after 100 years when nobody from our generation would be there to tell the stories. Almost everyone will be dead and gone by then. All Facebook and other social media profiles of our generation will be no more active.


'Captain America: Civil War' - More Superheroes But Less Punch Than 'Batman V Superman' | May 12, 2016 | The Huffington Post

The hype, the superheroes and the unlimited praise from critics propelled me to watch no less than the first show of Captain America: Civil War. The critics had slammed Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice which I actually loved, so given that Civil War earned accolades from the snarkiest of reviewers I was pretty excited.


Your Digital Avatar | Apr 8, 2016 | The Assam Tribune

Imagine life after 100 years. Almost everyone living today will be dead and gone by then. All Facebook and other social media profiles of our generation will become digital graveyards.


Ghost In The Machine: Living Forever As A Digital Avatar | Apr 4, 2016 | The Huffington Post

Imagine life after 100 years. Almost everyone living today will be dead and gone by then. All Facebook and other social media profiles of our generation will become digital graveyards. Today's young beauty will be tomorrow's dead grandma, today's leaders will be archived in digital libraries. And as has been the case for many millennia, this generation will disappear and the next one will take over.


The Reality of a Digital Dark Age | Mar 4, 2016 | The Assam Tribune

The impact of digitalization is so high that we can't imagine a day without its presence in our day to day lives. What if everything written by our generation becomes obsolete in future and our existence fades away into oblivion because there are no records or supporting files left in future.


You Critics Are Jokers - 'Batman v Superman' Is One Of The Best Superhero Movies Ever | Mar 3, 2016 | The Huffington Post

I am writing this letter to let you know how new age masterpieces will be disregarded by people like you to satisfy your own inflated egos. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was one of the most awaited movies of the decade, but its release was met by an explosion of bad reviews and criticism. But here's the thing, most audiences will not agree with this herd-like dumping of negativity in the movie.
