R.I.P. MJ

I am not too great a fan of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, but yeah I mourn for the fact that we lost a genius… or maybe we lost him already a few years ago…! Just wanted to share one of the best tributes I have seen so far, to the legend.. to […]

Purine Swaraj

After all, we are amongst the very few nations where the citizens have the freedom to take everything for a free ride. Well, yeah you need to pay here and there.. (okay everywhere!), but certainly not necessary to pay the nation! We are amongst the very few nations where we have complete Peedom (not just Freedom), its the Purine Swaraj!

YASG – Yet Another Story Game

After the huge success of our first Story, we played the same game again, over the night of  Friday 26 June, with a different mix of authors this time – producing a more weird unreadable piece of trash. The useless morons who collaborated to bring this story together were: Anil Kumar Gupta Mota Bhai (Abhinav […]

Gamealored

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! Kogworks, which made its arrival at our place on 22nd, as a saviour to save us from becoming perfect Jack(s), ignited the gamers within us.  Mota, “who-can-do-anything”, immediately deeply yearned to play Chinese Checkers. For all who know this extraterrestrial troll, know it perfectly that […]

Kogworks

Thanks to Divya & Richa, who (to my initial surprise) gifted me Kogworks, a two-player, abstract strategy, board game, on my birthday; which has now become the new buzzword at my place and has captivated us to give in all our spare hours playing it (some spared deliberately for the purpose).

The Story game

Yesterday night, WE played a game. A story game, where each person says just one line of a story spun by him and the yarn is spun around. The game started with a dark night when the night was dark and ended with the break of the dawn… afterall we Friends are Insomniacs!!

STOPped

All my life, I have read, been told and made to believe that life always goes on, times change, so does everything around us and we adapt. Some nice quotes, which I like as well, tell me the same: “I can sum up in the three words what I have learnt in life – Life […]

Weakend

All good things must come to an end, and so did this weekend. I’d rather call it a weakend as I found find myself too weak to end it, too tempted to hold the moments… to stop the time…! The weekend splendidly spent in Pune, with creatures of most varied nature and significance, comes to […]

A few King’s men

Ala new government, led by our Hon’ble Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh again, and the new(?) King walked to the Rashtrapati Bhavan today with His Men. Fifty-nine of King’s men took oath today to form the largest Council of Ministers any democracy has had in this world! I know India is the largest democracy in the world, but does a large battalion guarantee that we, the citizens of India, will get the basic necessities along with security of job & lives?

100 out of 99

The movie takes you back to the previous millenium, in the year 1999 when mobile phones were niche assets, cyber cafes were popping up like mushrooms, match fixing was on its penultimate high, and Coffee shops only meant Madras Cafe or the City Coffee House. The era has been beautifully decade in a very subtle yet striking manner, which makes you seriously ponder that in the past one decade — The world around us has changed!
