10 people you would love to avoid at all costs


1. Nothing can be more frightful than a demonic scorn of a pissed off girlfriend. In olden days, it could have burnt you to the ground.

2. Colleagues, who side stepped you to promotion. You are no longer a big hug bunny to them.

3. Profs, whose courses you flunked. You may be a big shot manager by now, but you will always try not bump into him/her, during the alum meets.

4. Neighborhood Uncle and Aunt, who know your academic record like the Sachin’s centuries.

5. Relatives and family friends whose wards have foreign degrees and their parents can’t shut up about that; nor can yours.

6. That one cousin in your family, who shared the same crush as you.

7. Few school and college friends, you no longer feel connected to. Just share few old jokes and pass on mate.

8. Your weed dealer, if he is under arrest.

9. Landlord, when you bring a girl over for a ‘Night Cap’.


10. Former classmate, whose ‘Diaper-Delivering’ start-up just got a funding of 1 million from a VC, while you bide your time napping in the cubicle.

Let the Magic Begin!!!

Hi,
I stopped writing about 2.5 years ago. Why? 
I guess I didn't like the smell of my own shit. Weird huh!!
Well, that happens right!! Self-doubts, low self-belief and mostly poor sentence construction and grammar issues. 
Have I overcome those? Naaa, still work-in-progress. So, why am I writing again?
I think I have a sane explanation for that at least. Writing when taken as a job or as a serious vocation becomes impossible for me. It simply ceases to be fun for me. 
One more reason for not having written much from last 2.5 years is that I became better at managing my emotions, hence I stopped using my blog as my refuge. So, guys bring out your reading glasses and your coffee mugs because it is going to be a long read. My fingers are working on an auto-mode. The process is so fast I am unable to keep up with it. I am barely able to breathe. God! Have I missed it? 
It is like touching yourself again after a month-long "celibacy" vow minus the sticky part.
I have no ide…

Ikk Kudi Jeda naam......Udta-Punjab-Review

Finally, the mavericks at Phantom have started to churn out movies which can both stir the social curry as well as money counters. 38.8 Cr in the opening weekend must have been a big deal for the producers. It's been a long time since the money came in crashing for them.
Udta Punjab is a treat to watch, for a lot of reasons. Is it an unconventional movie?Yes. Is it entertaining?Yes. Does it have a message for the society? Yes. Does Alia have an item Song? No. Sorry. She was not paid that much or even Kareena for that reason. 
The latent stench of a documentary has been well camouflaged behind the long flowing locks of Shahid Kapoor. Within ten minutes of the movie, you get a feel that the director means business. There is no excess social drama that usually forms the part of movies which are on Drug menace-A poor family with a little source of income and the main earning member hooked to the syringe-No, Sir. This one started right at the barbed Indo-Pak border of Punjab from wher…

Bihar

One word which kept ringing in my head during my trip to Bihar was "unapologetic". Everything I saw or heard was in its raw form. There was no tact or attempted sweetness. The Auto rickshaws did not wait for you to move off the road, but somehow without scratching you, they will pass right through. Driver will turn his eyes towards you for a brief second and then spit the pan on the other side. "Chawtiya" was his assessment of me followed by peels of laughter from the other cramped passenger whose one butt cheek was hanging like an overgrown pumpkin. I did not mind. Neither did I revert. I just smiled and walked. It was around 9 am. The market was already bustling. We stopped at a dingy sweet shop. The owner was sitting on a tall stool as if he was judging a tennis match between Rafa and Federer. We asked him the rates of the plates. He just showed us in and indicated V with his finger as his entire mouth was overloaded with Pan induced Saliva. The walls were neve…
