Monsieur Neuf – Happy Ninth Birthday, blog!

This blog is nine years old today! It’s been a long, long time. Almost as long as the UPA has been in power, and decided to reverse all the decisions of its predecessor and tried ousting the NDA-appointed erudite, visionary … Continue reading

Acht-tung, baby

CS-boom-de-ah-dah OR I Love Computer Science.

So I chanced up on this Youtube vid of Discovery Channel’s ‘The World is Awesome’.  XKCD had its own lyrics to it. Someone (actually many someones) made videos of it. Given that the original is a camping song called I … Continue reading

Where were you when India won the World Cup?

I woke up from a seeming stupor at 7:45 am, and the last thing I remembered was closing my eyes during the 9th over of the SL innings for ‘two minutes’. Webcric’s feed was intermittent and I ended up following … Continue reading

I ♥ Movies

I used to be a majorleague movie buff at one point of time. It almost seemed like no movie would release in Hindi, Kannada and Tamil, and to some extent, English, without my knowledge. Mind you, this was in the … Continue reading

Minestrone Soup again

Food-related title. The past couple of months have been all about food. I delight in eating, and have developed a most unhealthy habit of random cravings at unearthly hours of the day and night. I’m at some level thankful for … Continue reading

Ms Feather-light

There is this type of women or girls I keep running into from time to time. I call them Ms. Feather-light. This species  is almost always camouflaged as the strong-confident-career types who can take the world with the tip of … Continue reading

Quick review of Enthiran

I just got done with Enthiran. Not on the big screen, sadly, but the awesomeness still shines through. It is simply Perfect. Rather well-made product. Ash is not irritating , she seems so totally back to her ’90s aura of … Continue reading

Halfway ’round the world

Thirty-Eight Hours

My phone ringing when it was going through security check. Getting unnerved by the stony-faced security officer. Chatting up an old Indian couple who couldn’t for the hell of them figure out how to use the payphones. Looking at the … Continue reading

Bond of seven births etc

Yusuf Khan’s screen name was Dilip Kumar. He married Saira Bano. AR Rehman’s name used to be Dilip Kumar. He too married a Saira Bano. Maybe we really were on to something when we played FLAMES in middle school.
