GOA IT IS...!!!

Off to Goa for the AAAI ferstival. Had great fun at Madira right now. All of us decided to ‘fuel’ ourselves before the journey. We’ll be taking a bus from Prabhadevi.

The trip promises to be all fun n all. With all the water sports and such other ‘fun’ activities.
Shall post a detailed update once there. Adios.

PS: Leo Burnett apparently has won quite a few awards. But JWT it's rumoured is the agency of the year.Kudos to Aggie!

The year has begun on a highly optimistic note as far as good reading was concerned.Right from Jan onwards have been getting to read quite a few impressive books.

Reading Milan Kundera's Ignorance right now. Another book which is keeping me occupied is Arthur Miller- His life & work by Martin Gottfried.While I am yet to form an opnion about the former, the latter as expected is full of nice insights into playwrighting styles and nuances.But provided one knows how to recognise a tip when one comes across one.

Picked up Burial at Sea by Khushwant Singh on saturday along with Amartya Sen's Identity and Violence - The Illusion of Destiny.Can't wait to lay my hands on them, but not before I have finished the first two books.

While I had been to pick up Saat Sakkam Trechalis by Kiran Nagarkar I stumbled upon 2 of the super movies of my favourite
director - Govind Nihalani; Drishti & Hazaar Chaurasi ki Ma. Needless to say both are fab movies. They establish Nihalani as one of those few auteur directors of India who has dared to experiment with a new and pertinant issues through his creations.Have been trying to get my hands on one of the other gems from the master - Party.The CD is not available at all.Based on a play by Mahesh Elkunchwar this one rips apart the pseudoglamourous existence of the folks in the elite circle.More on these movies probably in some other post.Have to catch up on a lot of books meanwhile.

PS:If someone has the priced DVD/CD of Party just lemme know please.

A new look

So after really, really long, I have changed the template. This is the third one since I started. Nowadays am not able to find time to post. There were sooo many things to write about, my birthday, the south trip, the ad film shoot etc etc.

Lets see…

Here’s one sher to keep the blog alive...

Raftaar ki shart toh khair manzoor thi hume,
Magar girne par haarne ki baat toh nahi hui thi.

- Yours truly.
