This year, I won't take anything lying down. There is a lot of horseshit to clean up and hard talk to be done.
Call it a moment of epiphany if you will. But when my editor wrote in with a note asking if I have the muscle in my head to write a piece around what is my New Year resolution, I was staring at a pitch-dark sky. It was after long that I had gotten time out to look at the stars from the terrace at my uncle’s home in Padiyoor, a village in Thrissur district of Kerala. Cut away from the mainland, after a seemingly long time, I finally had a little time to myself—that I may look at my favourite constellation, the Orion, and think of the year that had just gone by and what lies ahead.
