Silky smooth baldness...

As a kid, I used to read a lot of spy novels and watch all those damn detective serials and paranormal phenomenon serials ( Yes, the X- files was my Bible and I still bow my head in reverance thinking of Mulder and Scully) which …

Just a short post as there's tons of shopping and a train awaiting.. Why are people being so bitchy about Saawariya.. all the reviews I saw before I went for the movie absolutely killed the movie.. I'm not even gonna say …

Oooooh.. aaaaaah

This is more of a follow up to the "man on the moon" post.. it had perked up my interest in optical illusions and other phenomena so I went hunting through the net.. I got a lot of routine fare, to be sure, as the net i…

Reel life blues...

I saw an actress act today. You know what's funny ? She was being her natural self and yet she was playing one of the toughest roles I've seen her play. I'm talking of Kareena Kapoor in Jab we Met. She plays a girl in…

A while back, I'd talked to a newly married friend and she lamented on how her hubby just sat back after work and watched football all day long. Naturally, it irritated her since she had no interest in the game. I sent her th…

They're out there

I beat my own record for the fastest 100 metres dash in the last hour. Seriously, I was the first one out of the theatre hall of "Bhool Bhulaiya" even after having attained a creditable Gold class Row -B ticket. Why ? W…

Between friends

They sat together, these two, watching the oblivious crowd below carrying on with their lives. The rooftop was a frequent meeting place for nocturnal chats back when they were young. Noone would invade their privacy up here amid…

Love me for a reason..
