O Kadhal Kanmani – Just about OK?

I watched my twitter feed go agog at the first trailer release of O Kadhal Kanmani. Reminiscent of Alaipayudhe was the verdict. I watched from the sidelines as the music release happened and then the movie. I jumped at the chance to watch the movie with family today and walked out of the theater wondering … Continue reading O Kadhal Kanmani – Just about OK?

Bloggy speed dial

Each day, sometimes in the morning, sometimes at lunch, some other days as I retire for the night, I run through a list of blogs that are on my 'speed dial' of sorts in my head. I call it my daily fix. Much like coffee or email. I *need* to read these blogs. Some clue … Continue reading Bloggy speed dial

YOU, you and yes you the silent reader from Marvell Semiconductors. 🙂 On an average day about 100 people visit the blog reading on average about two pages, staying on the blog for about 3.27 minutes.

Too much information?

Lakshmi asked: How did you convince yourself to share so much of your private life with all, I mean EVERY ONE? Ever struggle with it at all? I admire you – its not easy to do it. I have to admit this question took me by surprise. Not so because it is so pointed but … Continue reading Too much information?

Each day as I sip Kaapi, shower or drive to work, my mind is looking for bloggable topics. Incidents that embed themselves into my brain. Some days I get lucky like Tuesday when I got stuck in the snow. Some other days, there is nothing eventful happening. Then one day I get lucky. Browsing randomly … Continue reading Writing prompts

My Inner Carrie

I have mentioned how much I heart SATC in other posts here. I love Carrie Bradshaw. Let me qualify that by saying I like how she thinks of everything in her life as an article waiting to be written. When I think Carrie, I imagine her in her PJ's laptop open and words typing on … Continue reading My Inner Carrie

I’ll be back.

Up earlier than normal for a weekend, I heard K pull out of our driveway on his way to a cricket match. The clock showed 7:45 AM. I lit the lamps, made myself a cup of tea and sat on the couch with my phone to call Amma. Phone call done, I looked around. The … Continue reading I’ll be back.

Life is good!

Sometimes in the hours before I am ready to call it a day, I sit on my recliner, feet up, laptop perched comfortably on my legs and browse. I cover news from MSNBC, The Hindu, Rediff, CNN, BBC and Google News. Then wondering what to do next, I haunt all my fave bloggers in the … Continue reading Life is good!

Inexorable march to the future

Dictionary.com defines inexorable as unbending; severe, relentless, unrelenting, implacable, merciless, cruel, pitiless. Around where I live there are plenty of steep winding country roads. Much like roller coasters. One such road is the one connecting my home with my brother's. Each time we drive back home there is this stretch where there is the feeling … Continue reading Inexorable march to the future
