The fuss about going Green

The fuss about ‘going green’ Honestly, I don’t understand what all this ‘go green’ fuss is about. There has been an explosion of TV shows, green marathons, walks, talks – you name it! But, how does it matter to me – if the earth runs out of oxygen or water after 1000 years? I won’t even be alive then! It simply makes no difference to my life. Or does it? A long time ago, when I was still a pig-tailed-school-kid, we learnt about the soaring temperatures (40+ degrees centigrade) in the Thar desert in Rajasthan, and were utterly shocked. How … Continue reading The fuss about going Green

Wordy Wday – Desi girls and some non-sense

To all the ‘innocent folks’ who landed on this page, googling ‘desi girls’ or ‘nonsense’ – you’d be disappointed, so close the window right away. So my friends, a very boring wordy Wednesday, this. Spotted this ‘appertisement‘ on a local bus last week, and thought the model looked really really familiar! And hey! It was our very own Genelia :-) I loved the cute characters she played in the Sachin and Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Seen it? Seen it? Isn’t that sweet? Wouldn’t we love to see more Indian actors and actresses in advertisements abroad, even if it was only for  Dabur Vatika!!! Except … Continue reading Wordy Wday – Desi girls and some non-sense

My dead grandPaa (part-fiction, part-rant)

Every time I see the Promos for the film ‘Paa‘, I think of how strange it would be if my Grandfather were alive. For some unknown reason, Auro reminds me of the GrandPaa I never had. He died before I was even born. [Pic courtesy Sulekha dot com] My only memory of him are fragments of a story I’d heard somewhere, sometime (from my Grandmother, perhaps). That he was on the battlefield, and was severely hurt, along with a friend. And whilst they lay there to die, he felt thirsty, and managed somehow, to find a bottle of water. Just … Continue reading My dead grandPaa (part-fiction, part-rant)

Five steps to looking HAEP and KHEWL

Five easy steps for a woman to look haaeeeep and kheeeewl. 1- Wear a pair of oversized sun-glasses I had a severe eye infection about 10 days ago, and I was forced to borrow a pair of over-sized sun glasses from a neighbour, and I must say, I looked quite different! Was impressed myself, and I knew others were too, as people gave me THE look, you know! (Atleast, they didn’t drop any coins into my hands, so I assume it was all for good ;-) ) Anyway, so, you go, find that pair and make sure you wear it on at … Continue reading Five steps to looking HAEP and KHEWL

Dil Bole ‘Hadap’-pa

When? Oh! When? When will B(/K)ollywood learn to be original? For how many more centuries will be continue to copy plots and music? I really was looking forward to watching Dil Bole Hadippa, but then I read Quirky’s exhaustive review, and decided to skip it. The movie, I mean. When I accidentally came across the story-line, I was disgusted, as this is a straight lift off the English movie: She’s the man. Now that, was a thoroughly enjoyable movie. So, I was upset to see Yashraj has simply hadap-ed an English movie, instead of letting their creative juices flow. I guess … Continue reading Dil Bole ‘Hadap’-pa
