Booker Prize 2008 - The White Tiger

India & China are known for better reasons in Aravind Adiga's - The White Tiger,than for the war of so called "SUPER POWER" by 2050 ..........

The hunger of the characters in this novel is alarming & you can see why India has quickly become a challenger on the global stage.There's no room for mercy in the jungle that is Balram's India, and the more tigers he has on his side the better.

It was a memorable experience but felt more like a movie script .........Worth a Read !

Stay Blessed !!!

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again during this time.

We should be like wet cement , trying to make an impression every year which passes by .

Happy Holidays ......................

'04 '05 '06 '07 '08 ................ 2009

I am not obsessed counting my age yet !

The above count is my stay away from Bangalore , having stayed 2yrs in London and 3yrs in Chicago.

Life away from home has become a foreign language and most of the time I have mispronounced it.

I recollect a spat with my dad during my college days having challenged " I shall prove you that I can stay away from home for 5 good yrs ".
(Being the only natty child to my folkz ......................)

I have no regrets as I believe that everything happens for a reason be it good or bad and this journey since 2004 has been rewarding in moulding a character tagged "RAHUL".

Indian Idol 4 - Is It a Girl or a Boy ?

You hate it or love it , I am sure most of us do watch this talent hunt . I have been following all the seasons till date and to my surprise this II4 is a bit different from the rest due to "Girl Power" been raised quite often by the judges.

Lay back and watch to see if its going to be a Boy or a Girl this season . I think the people of India would choose a better singer irrespective of gender .

Having said that we should be our own judge as we cannot put a "stop payment" on reality check of these shows !

Mr Rahul Gandhi - Safe Bet ???

Having learnt from the recent terror attacks that Politicians are like diapers , they both need to be changed regularly for similar reasons.

I frantically scratched my little grey cells to see if we can choose a better leader for our nation , I was not really surprised to find an answer "NONE" .........

My unfair & biased votes went for Mr Rahul Gandhi .
Do you think he is our Safe Bet ???

I guess we still need to smile when it hurts the most..............

Slumdog Millionaire - Destiny's Child

George Herbert once said "Destiny is always Dark". Having watched this underdog rags-to-raja saga percolates in originality and blistering spirit.

The film has a flavor as distinctive as Cinnamon tea.

I see another City of Joy being framed ...........

Its a million rupee winter blockbuster !!
Make an effort to watch .

A sure Oscar contender ....... Even though I am not a big fan of Oscar's !!!

Imraan's Tee - Speaks His Mind ???

Think While You Ink

If you have known her as "Jackie Collins" of India, so be it! Why should you want to read her critical & brutal articles ?

Having watched her independent voice for the Mumbaikars resenting the outsiders or wake up call for the Mumbaites during the terror attack she has walked her way out for the resilient Indians .

I did want to re-introduce the writer whom I respect & who inspires me the most to ink on this blog ..............................
Shobhaa Dé

Please read more about her recent articles "Wake up , Mumbai ....."
" Enough is Enough " ........ "Cry , my beloved city "

My Heart Goes To Mumbai ........

Having walked the streets of Mumbai way back in 2006 before I landed here in Chicago , Its seems to me a world of its own is created with my heart going in for the civilians and the brave men who have fought a battle for themselves to survive the worst terror attack in India.

My only request for all the Indians back home not to come to NORMALCY and would want them to send a message across India that we cannot afford to FORGET or FORGIVE !!!
