U-Turn

Did you take one today ? Was it allowed ? Did you shift the divider slabs ? If you think this to be a blabber, please watch the latest Kannada flick: U Turn.  It’s a fab film by Mr. Pawan Kalyan on the perils of traffic violation, negligent driving and the chaos it can wreak…

Declutter

I am not referring to your mind. After several failed attempts, I had realized, it’s practically impossible to do so. However, it is possible to declutter your wardrobe, cabinets, office-drawers, in-fact any place which can be stuffed, including your tummy.  How ? I’ll mention the steps I took.

500D

“I had been waiting for a 500D since past 45 minutes”. The girl told me. I was so wrong when I thought, only my waits are endless. It was 6:05 P.M on a soothing Bangalore evening. With no signs of rain, I had just endured a walk of 600mt with a heavy backpack, only to…

DIY SmartPhone Projector

Chotu : “Gift mil gaya kya ?” Me: “Nahin, bheja bhi hai ?” Chotu: “Ha, its a DIY phone projector”. And I froze. What were AJ and chotu thinking when they ordered a DIY stuff for the most clumsy and confused person on this planet Earth. May be they weren’t, as always. Once the news sunk in,…

Lepakshi

Saurav weekend mein aa rahan hai, kahan chalna hai, bahut garmi hai, not an overnight trip,  well these are a snippets of conversation we had when our batch-mate decided to visit us in Bangalore .
