Depressing - Thats New York

I just saw New York this weekend. After ages I was watching a bollywood flick in a theatre. So went with really high expectations. N the fact that it was a Yash Raj production only seemed to increase it. Fun Cinemas in Sigma Mall, Cunningham road was the only place where tickets were available. I hate that place. I dont know why but everytime I visit Sigma mall, I come out feeling extremely depressed or irritated. This time it was a combination of both. Depressed because of the movie, n irritated because of the person who was accompanying me. Now the movie... Its good. But definitely not worth a **** rating. I would give it a *** rating. The movie starts of well. The best part is the campus story n it is also the shortest part. Katrina looks awesome, but poor girl cant act to save her life. She has the same expression throughout the movie. John looks amazing as usual, but his acting stumped me. He has come a long way since his Aetbaar and Madhoshi days. Neil Nitin Mukesh wa

Colors of Life

I feel blue , When I try to forget the fact that I miss you.. I know you are not around anymore and My heart actually aches for you.. I feel green , When I sleep and dont see you in my dream.. The thought of you with someone else, Creeps me and only makes me scream.. I feel yellow , Without you I'm so confused, hazy but mellow.. What I felt for you, can never be felt again, No, not even for the best fellow.. I feel red , With the thought that you're with someone else instead.. Be it morning, noon or night, Its only your thoughts in my head.. I feel lime , When the days we spent together comes into my mind.. You were so caring, so amazing, So wonderful, so understanding and kind.. I feel white , All I want now is for you to hold me tight.. I dont know what it was about you, But you always made life seem bright.. I feel brown , You only made me smile n never frown.. You were the king of my life and, You were the jewel in my crown.. I feel pink , Cant believe its over, our

Flash of Weekend

I just had the most shortest weekend ever. I remember waking up on Saturday n going to watch 'New York'. Next thing I realise is I'm getting ready for work on Monday. It was just a flash n then gone. Pfff... So much for waiting for an entire week, to eventually reach the weekend. Now there are 5 more days to go :-(

Heaven through Hell - My journey with IBM

First of all, Congrats to me. Its been a year since I started working. A successful, eventful year. Exactly a year ago, this time I was in Chennai staring into strange faces.First day started of well, with a grand welcome in Le Royal Meridian . With no friends around, I was in a strange city. Not any city, but a city like Chennai. Me being a metropolitan, Bangalore bred girl, I found it really hard to cope up. Not only that, I was away from my family, boyfriend n friends. I thought "Well, this is it. This is what hell looks like". After having lost a lot of things, including the love of my life, I came back to Bangalore. This was hell for me. Still with the hope of starting a good career I put up with everything. I met great people in the company. I got to learn things which I hadn't learnt for 4 years in college. IBM has given me many things. Great friends to begin with. Respect, It gives me so much pleasure to watch my dad tell relatives that his small little daughte

Homage to the King of POP

Dear MJ, May your soul rest in peace. You will surely be missed.

Lousy is the word

I just saw Delhi 6. Thats 2 hours of my life I am never gonna get back :-(. Clearly the worst movie have ever seen. The movie should have been called Kaala bandhar instead. It only deals with the age old monkey man issue, n some Ram lila here n there. Even the concept of romance is so lousy. I ever expect much from an Abhishek Bachchan movie anyway. But after Rang de Basanti, expected a lot more from Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra. But no. This one was worse than his first movie, Aks. Saving Grace?? - Sonam Kapoor. She's simply gorgeous. Makes the wrong choice with movies though. After the dud Saawariya, comes a bigger dud. Please lady we are waiting to see some good work from you. As for Delhi 6, If anyone sat through the whole movie in a theatre, hats off to you!! May your soul rest in peace.

Weight Issues

Okay... So I'm not very happy these days. I have lost oodles of weight. Not that I was Hercules before. I was already lean, n losing weight inspite of that is making me look size 0. I knew if you were not happy you would lose weight. I just dint realise that I was this unhappy. Within a span of 3 weeks I lost more than 10% of my weight. The past few days have been very stressful n trying for me. Infact this whole month seems to be jinxed. Its fine that nothing good happened, but why should bad things happen. My parents are worried big time. I seem to be losing weight by the second. Many people strive hard for months to knock a kilo off. N a person who needs kilos is knocking them off like crazy. I've had enough. I'm on a serious weight put on mission now. After years, I'm actually having breakfast regularly n atleast 5 meals a day. Coffee is totally off ( I cant believe I actually quit ), pastries n muffins are in. Healthy meals actually make me feel really good. Right

Careless Whisper

My all time favourite song, George Michael you rock. If only you were not gay... :P I feel so unsure As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor As the music dies, something in your eyes Calls to mind a silver screen and all those sad goodbyes I'm never gonna dance again Cause guilty feet have got no rhythm Though it's easy to pretend I know you're not a fool I should have known better than to cheat a friend And waste the chance that I'd been given So I'm never gonna dance again The way I danced with you Time can never mend The careless whispers of a good friend To the heart and mind Ignorance is kind And there's no comfort in the truth Pain is all you'll find I'm never gonna dance again Cause guilty feet have got no rhythm Though it's easy to pretend I know you're not a fool I should have known better than to cheat a friend And waste the chance that I'd been given So I'm never gonna dance again The way I danced with you To

My second home

Dear Barista, You are one of the most important thing in my life. You know my tastes very well. You have been with me in both my high n low times. I have always been nice to you n have introduced almost all of my friends to you. There have been days when you have been my home. I come to you n I can feel relaxed. I have visited many parts of you, but my favourite shall always remain the M.S Ramaiah barista in new BEL road. Everyone knows where to find me if I'm not at home. All my friends know that I'm safe with you. The times spent with you have been amazing n trust me as long as I live I shall come n visit you everyday. You've fed me so well that I feel like I owe you something big. Something other than the 150 bucks or more I pay you during every visit. You're lemon iced tea n chocolate ecstacy is something I swear by. They are the ultimate. Your chocolate chip muffin is the perfect way to squeeze out stress from my day. My dear, beloved Barista, I have a confessio

Eight Below

This is probably the best that has come out of my local oscar library :-). An amazing movie. I've always loved dogs, n this movie is a tribute to them. I laughed, I cried. Oh mann.. What a movie. This movie was something that I should have seen like 3 weeks ago. But I just got the time a coupla days back. The movie is about 8 dogs. Maya, Old Jack, Max, Shorty, Truman n Dewy (the twins), Buck and last but not the least Shadow. How do they get animals to act I dont understand. The way these dogs show emotion on their faces is truly remarkable. They should have won an oscar for it. After losing my beloved dog about 8 years back, I couldnt bring myself to get another one to take his place. But now, after watching this movie I surely will. I wouldnt mind even eight or ten. Okay.. The story goes like this. There is a research team in Antartica called NSF which includes these eight dogs. The only local means of transportis them. They are tied to a sledge n they need to pull it. Due to

That thing called.... Love

That thing called....love. This particular title of a book caught my eye at Blossoms', the book store. Being a love fool, as expected I picked up the book. It was written by a new comer. Worse, Indian. Indian author books are not something I like to read. Well I'm not being racist here, its just that I dont like their style of writing. Chetan Bhagat for example, Five point someone was good ( okay to be precise ), the other two sucked. His third book, 3 mistakes of my life made me realise that the 2 days I spent reading it, n the 180 bucks I spent on the book is something that I'm never going to get back. I had almost written off Indian authors until I came across Jhumpa Lahiri . Her Namesake, Interpreter of Maladies and Unaccustomed Earth were amazing. Unaccustomed Earth in particular was great. It was simple, n each story in it was well told in a sweet way. You could easily identify yourself with any of those characters. That was the last Indian author book I read.

Shiney, not shining anymore..!!

Last night, after watching India's debacle in the world cup... Like I was not depressed enough, I came across a breaking news "Actor Shiney Ahuja accused of raping housemaid". Worse, him confessing to it. I couldnt believe it. I've always liked him. He looked so normal, so ordinary that made him attractive. But him being in the news for wrong reasons, upset me. If he has confessed to it, then there is nothing much to say. He deserves the worst of punishments. If he's being framed, then I pray that he come clean. I dont think he is someone who would do such a mean thing. A well settled n married guy with a kid. N not to forget that he is famous. The housemaid in question surely doesnt look 19, n without any forensic evidence, I dont know how they arrested him. I just hope this episode doesnt jeopardise his career. Not that he has a very upswinging one, but still I liked a few of his movies n he looks great. Hmmm ... being a celebrity has its own up's n

Bored..!!

I'm so bored with life. Why are'nt any good movies releasing. With India out of the world cup, there is nothing much to look forward to. Being a person who loves to roam around, I'm running out of places here. Movies... I miss watching them in theatre. At home, I can watch anything anytime. Thats the best point of having best friends like Mr. A, who has a collection of movies larger than the oscar library :-), n I have a miniature version of it too :-). Angels & Demons was the last I saw. N bollywood?? Holy moly..... The last I saw was Ghajini. Both sucked. Badly waiting for Terminator salvation. Christian Bale....... Wow..!! After Dark Knight, I'm waiting to watch him take macho man Arnold's place. Another movie I'm waiting to watch is Newyork. For obvious reasons... :P.. I just love that song "Hai Junoon". Katrina has never looked that good before. Loved her costume. Well have a whole list of movies to look out for. Love aaj Kal n Kaminey seem in

Monday Blues

Mondays... Apart from poverty, racism and AIDS, this is something I wish never existed. The very thought of Mondays make me yawn my lungs out. The Monday blues are the worst feeling ever. I literally have to drag myself out of bed every Monday morning. Actually this is the same story everyday ;-) but its worse on Mondays. The weekends are always shorter n the sun rises really early on a Monday. Techies nowadays just dont have a life. Even before you know it the weekends are gone n the damned Monday is laughing at your face. Why cant it be a 5 day week? Or why dont we have 3 days for the weekend? Its so sad. Not going over the top, I think Wednesdays should be made an official holiday as well. Working on Monday n Tuesday, then an off, Back to work for next 2 days n an off again. This would be really ideal. Work goes on, but dont we need sufficient rest? The entire week is spent with us rattling our brains. We surely need a mid-week break. Please God please, hear us.!!

The Ultimate Love Story

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is one of my all time favourite movies. I remember this was the first hindi movie I saw in the theatre. I was 8, n I went to watch this with all my cousins. It was the Sagar theatre in Majestic. I wouldnt step my foot in that area now though. This movie is superb. Its the ultimate love story. I would love to have such a love story. Its simple n classic. Shahrukh Khan..!! What do I say about him. I've been crazy of him from when I was 4. From the time I saw Baazigar. Its been almost 19 years since then, yet I'm loyal to him. I love his movies. My favourites have varied time n again, Hrithik, John, Rahul Bose, Fardeen.... n so on. But ShahRukh will always be my ultimate favourite. This movie perfectly defines the saying "Believe in your dreams" and "Believe in Love". This movie has a perfect combination of friendship, love n respect for parents. It can also pass of as a family movie. N the songs are simply amazing. Shahrukh n Kajo

The Man Code - Part 2

 WELL here's a few reasons why guys like girls... As said by a man..!! Yeah, sometimes men do make sense... "1. They will always smell good even if its just shampoo 2. The way their heads always find the right spot on our shoulder   3. How cute they look when they sleep 4. the ease in which they fit into our arms   5. the way they kiss you and all of a sudden everything is right in   the world   6. How cute they are when they eat   7. The way they take hours to get dressed but in the end makes it   all worth while  8. because they are always warm even when its minus 30 out side  9. the way they look good no matter what they wear  10. the way they fish for compliments even though you both know   that you think she's the most beautiful thing on this earth  11. How cute they are when they argue  12. the way her hand always finds yours  13. the way they smile  14. the way you feel when you see their name on the call ID after   you just had a big fight  15. The way she says &

The Man Code

This was a mail which was forwarded to me by my best friend Priya. I always thought that there was nothing much to write about men. But this mail says it all. Here it is, the man code-Decoded :-) 1: Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella. 2: It is OK for a man to cry ONLY under the following circumstances: (a) When a heroic dog dies to save its master. (b) The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse. (c) After wrecking your boss’ car. (d) One hour, 12 minutes, 37 seconds into “The Crying Game”. 3: Any Man who brings a camera to a bachelor party may be legally killed and eaten by his buddies. 4: Unless he murdered someone in your family, you must bail a friend out of jail within 12 hours. 5: Moaning about the brand of free beer in a buddy’s fridge is forbidden. However complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable. 6: No man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another man. In fact, even remembering your buddy’s birthday is strictly optiona

The Magic Tap

This is actually a sculpture present in Aqualand, Cadiz. The tap is actually in the air, with an endless suppy of water flowing from it. Its simply amazing..!! 

Angels & Demons

Just saw the movie. It was okay. The novel is way better. The movie incorporates a lot of new twists n turns, but nothing can beat the amazing novel. The ambigrams are not given enough importance. When I read the book I couldnt stop myself from going back n forth n looking at them. I used to turn the book around like a million times to see it. It had me go "Wow" every single time. In the movie they just show a shot of each sign. The fifth brand doesnt match the one in the book at all. It was supposed to be a diamond shaped one which holds all the other signs. Ewan McGregor looks amazing n the actress who plays Dr. Vittoria bears a stricking resemblence to domestic godess Nigella Lawson. Tom Hanks is good but looks really really old. All a all a movie worth the money. But not to watch it having high expectations. The book stands all against the movie.

Smile :)

Smiling is infectious, You catch it like the flu, When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too. I passed around the corner, And someone saw my grin, When he smiled I realized, I'd passed it on to him. I thought about that smile, Then realized its worth, A single smile, just like mine, Could travel round the earth. So, if you feel a smile begin, Don't leave it undetected. Let's start an epidemic quick, And get the world infected.

Memories of Life

No much work today. So I just sit n let my thoughts wander. Some make m happy, some moisten my eyes. The first thing that comes to my mind is, the first time I baked a cake all by myself. I can still feel the smell. My parents were so proud of me that day. So till today I'm the official baker of the family. The first day of my engineering college, all new strange faces around you, but the feeling of being in a college like Ramaiah held my head high. The time when I hugged my best friend goodbye while going away to Chennai, the time when the guy I love the most held my hand, the time I was awarded the Excellence in Studies award in high school, the time when my beloved doggie licked my face for the first time, the time when I handed over my first salary to dad. These memories never fail to bring a tear to my eye. Tears of joy. Happy memories include the time I topped college, the time I was crowned "Miss Fresher", the time I celebrated my love every single month for almost

Holy Spook

I first visited the Shiv Mandir in Old Airport Road when I was around 13. The place then looked so amazing. That was when Kemp Fort was'nt constructed. There was a huge vast marble adorned space in front of the massive statue. It was the most serene and peaceful holy place one could hope for. The Lord could be seen even as you drove along the Old Airport Road. I had a wonderful experience there. Even though I am not overtly religious, I kinda liked that place. It was said that you make a wish n toss a coin into the pool in front of the lord, the wish would come true. It did for me n I was thrilled. I still dont know why I dint visit that place all these years. My aunt stays just 5 minutes away from there. I have visited her a million times, but never the temple. Fast-forward 10 years n I'm at the temple now. I just cant recognise the place. Total Mall stands tall in front of the beautiful statue. The new entrance to the temple had me spooked. It looked like a cave bathed in b

Guy Talk

Is there anything called a perfect guy? The usual joke, perfect guys are like UFO's. They dont exist. Many girls want many traits in their guys. Some want goodlooking guys. Well... who doesnt? :-). Some want rich guys. Some want a guy who has everything. That is a perfect guy. N they spend their entire lives waiting for such a guy n eventually settle down with one who is far from being perfect. I dont want to end up that way. ... I want the guy who loves me as I am. ... I want the guy who puts me to sleep with a song. ... I want the guy who wakes me up with a kiss. ... I want the guy who cooks for me ( sometimes is fine ). ... I want the guy whom I can be totally comfortable with. ... I want the guy whom I can call any name I want. Cholu, polu, golu, booboo, poopoo, pookie... anything that can be pronounced. ... I want the guy who is sure of himself. ... I want the guy who makes me fall in love with him, every single day. ... I want the guy who has me craving for him. ... I want t
