Sunday - keeps your eyes open

Its an interesting comedy - thanks to Arshad Warsi & Irfann Khan!! They make the otherwise average film watchable.

I still don't think it was worth the 200 bucks apiece ticket - the music was atrocious, Ayesha Takia can't act, Ajay Devgun was under utilized. The suspense was ok & the film carried a good message too - never take a drink from a stranger - not in Delhi at least!

Then there's Balu the taxi driver - proclaiming - I'm not a lesbian - only Arshad Can do that ;-)

I haven't learnt to quit - even when I'm ahead!
So what if the next roll of the dice goes to my adversary!!

Play on - I say!!
One roll just ain't enough!

I have it all - but the inner self is always in turmoil. There is a restlessness within, that I seek to understand - but know not how.
I daydream - of tons of wishful things , including flying horses and pigs with wings.
I endeavor to be creative, to add my touch to the events around me. I want my life to mean something more - to those around me - to me!
So I try harder - and still the dice elude me.

Who the Fu** is Robert Vadhra?

Just a fella who married a political daughter.

So why does he get security , Z Class?
Why is he exempt from frisking at the airport, when all our service chiefs had to undergo it?
Does one marriage qualify him for all that - esp since she is not a serving member of any governmental agency? As someone put it quite coyly - he married the daughter of the power behind the throne!!

They block the friggin traffic if his entourage has to pass..... man!!
Someone ought to clobber some sense into the BABUs who run this country...We ain't gonna last for much long like this!

Happy Republic Day 2008!!

Learnings from the year gone by!!

Every year throws up its own set of issues and solutions.
2007 wasn't any different.
It's just that the issues this year had more of a global impact!Arjun is not to argue with women - he stood some semblance of a chance in the past - now that he's married & that too to a lady whose profession is arguing - he stands no chance!All thoughts of purchasing goodies for oneself are to be taken in perspective - multiply the cost of the item bought for self by a factor of 2 to 3 (depends on mood of lady) and provision the said amount for her purchases. - this ain't true - but you get the general idea!There is MOM & there is MA - both will shower you with love - but one must tread carefully cos this is a slippery path - where they all have tender nerves.Half gharwalis are the only ones with unconditional loveThe X Box 360 is a good gaming console - but one must console oneself to enjoying its delights on a very limited basis after the matrmonial bond is entered into.Even i…

Welcome 08

The pen has been silent for a long time now. It's not like i didn't have anything to write or convey.
The paucity of time coupled with the lack of willpower to sit down and make the effort to consolidate thoughts led to this hiatus from the blogging screen.
Well it's time to make amends and start 2008!

For starters - welcome to 2008!!

The new year promises some fresh starts!
There's Tina & Gautam starting their married life - wishing them the very best of luck!
Then there's me - planning to be a better person this year - less crap, more results!

Here are some things I hope will happen this year:-
- We start saving up for a new house this year - lets see if we can get it in the next 2 years or so
- We hope to be in LA for the new years 2009 - so mebbe Sups can get her passport done before that.
- We can spend more time with the family - whether its n Gurgaon or Kolkata - in a meaningful manner.
- Less of arguments and more on results for me and everyone else around me.
