Movie Critic

My friend told me casually “you know what, I downloaded a whole recent movie from one of those sites, first it took me 8 hrs to download the movie, the print* was bad and the movie horrible”

Paarpadhu thiruttu DVD
Kandupudipadhu aayiram kutram

Like on a cold day around the fireplace, delayed passengers congregated around the few pillars......

with power supply for their laptops and started their conversations with distant strangers through instant messaging.


As I got out on the street,
the cabbie was just pulling close to the pavement
took me to the station by the shortest route
had change to the $20 bill.

The line in the check-in counter was short
the check-in interface seemed intuitive.

Life seemed to scream “have a nice flight” until I reached the gate and it said “Time subject to change, delay due to EWR weather’.

Boston to Bangalore


I saw her first and felt that she was arrogant, studious without being intelligent, rich and beautiful. Perfect recipe for a Rajini movie heroine. By the time I realised she was kind, charming and witty as well, she was engaged to another classmate of mine.

American Life

When I came here, I came with this opinion. By the time I realised its fun to drive with Tamil MP3 playing, feast on endless variety of tasty stuff and wander around visually soothing malls, its time to leave to Bangalore

What do you call someone who ...

searches for my stuff faster than Google
makes the impossible sound simple
doesnt need valentine's to display love through blogposts that no-one reads
makes sense of all the madness thrown at her
turned me from "saying-as-it-is" to "seeing-things-that-werent-said"

Superwoman, thankyou for compressing Darwin's evolution to 7 years in my life.

Raising a kid

The best thing that you can probably do for your kid is not to always give it the best things in life.

Consulting is the art of talking a lot while saying very little.

Being in a governed city for a change

As I was watching the driver navigate the snow plough efficiently around my badly parked car and then leave without asking for bakshish, I realised...

A working city is like a warm blanket on a cold day, when you have it you don't realize its worth.

Hats off to the way Boston is being governed

It was my Dad's birthday yesterday, first time in eons I have actually wished him on a birthday.

Is it because I understood...
that when he shouted at me he meant me good and didnt mean to insult me
that when he dint to come to nurse my wounds it was because he had to earn to pay for my medicines
that when he dint know the class I was studying it was because working in shifts disorients you

Or because I want my son to remember my birthdays?
