Open Mag

After a long while, amidst crappy news websites and popups, I discovered one which is quite neat and impressively fresh on content. Open Mag. Its worth a read. http://www.openthemagazine.com

I've been thinking of picking up this book by Amish for a while, and this article pushed me to it - http://www.openthemagazine.com/article/true-life/the-mba-writer

Until the last moment

there are times when life lets our mind travel
a turn of roulette, and moments simply unravel

spaces just tricky, and thoughts as much sticky
luck being for sake witty, not acting quite pretty

and then she cometh with all the apt words and phrase
swept into talk with a hint of poise, subtle grace

slow little raindrops, sunshine bursting the window pane
is she the little lioness, in all wilderness and terrain

words flow like water dotted with cursory rushes
in tense past and present, do we but feel imaginary nudges

as smooth and swift as fingers on piano keys
did we get this far rather with eclectic ease

the rain must fall, the wind gather force
would we run on a lane so same in our lives and course

between the luck and trance, steps pause and fade
would all the affection still remain, or would we just evade

amidst the chaos that is life, will she still prevail
beyond both our futures, is this mirage, mist or veil

Under my eyes

There may not be many a time when we run into fog and are touched by it. On most occasions, we feel it ends up disrupting our plans or rather, its perceived as an uninvited guest in our normal scheme of things.

However, in the past few days fog is the most beautiful thing that I look forward to. It just gives the landscape an amazing arty touch. Fog. Nature. Give me more.

Indian cusine abroad can by quite tricky, especially in a place like the UK. However, some places in the UK still dont cease to amaze me. Some of the indian restaurants present indian cusine in a whole new dimension. One such place is Chowki. On the face of it, its the usual "dal, roti, chawal, curry" fare, but the way its presented is a tad bit different. A meal consists of different pots, and food is served in them, as you please. So, for a value meal you choose a ricepot, dalpot, and a currypot. A normal chowki value meal sets you back by £10-£14 per person. Get to Chowki.com to read more.

This cover design by artist Thota Tharani captures the true spirit of the indian flag. Simply a brilliant piece of artwork which illustrates the flavor of India. We're surging ahead, and we just wish our country moves much ahead in this world, every passing year.


Yet another distinctive film from Dibakar Banerjee (a la Khosla Ka Ghosla) albeit this one has a slightly different blend of humor. The best part of "Oye Lucky Lucky Oye" is the OST by Sneha Khanwalkar. She simply dazzles up the whole film with her lilting score and tracks. This film is a must-see for its innovative score.

Give me SuperChor, any day!

Body Clock

The last few months have been a lot of hard work and crazy traveling. Good on one note and bad on the other, like two sides of a coin. A nice experience but with a lot of strings attached. Traveling between countries gives you extra time, thanks to some time zones. The problem however is that though you remember the time, your body clock does not comprehend the cross of changes. While you sleep and wake up at local times, your body clock starts ringing alarm bells at its own "fixed" time zone.

This site called bodyclock.com makes it easy to calculate it.

Super Jumbo

This is one bird I simply loved flying. If you're a person who loves flying, The A380 leaves you speechless, in ways more than one.
