Reality check...somebody?


Its beginning to get me all over again!!!

First it was channel V if i remember correctly....remember Viva& asma?

Then now its the third season of Indian Idol(bloody copy cats) and the god knows which season of sare gama pa!!

There are all here to make it big!! Win a huge price money with a singing contract & stuff. But then wat after tht? Nothing much really. I remember following The indian idol season where Abhijeet Sawant won the contest, got an album removed& yeah, he got famous. Then comes the very irritating, Fame Jodi! Again, Rooprekha& Qazir(read he bleats actually) won. I think they are back to their respective hometown now! "One year of fame", isnt it?

Then comes the flop album followed by an equally quick disappearing act! thats not all, they always plan a comeback season. I remember my sister being glued to the television(as long as there are ppl talking& moving on the screaan, she can sit thru it) for an hour watching these bloody reality shows. Ma& pa would also join in. Then come the voting time& quickly everyone is soo engrossed in sending the sms's to the channels.

They vote because they feel, or do they? The host is constantly hugging& sharing the participants woes...boo hoo hoo! Gack!!! Aree kaun chance pe dance nahi karega!!(read Aman Verma is a naughty boy!!)

The sms's are flashed& wat not! lolz....

It doesnt obviously end there. Recently everywhere...actually everytime u turn you get to see the hoardings of " The greatest challenge in the universe" or some shit, Sare ga ma pa. They have even managed to rope in Asha Bhonsle, I guess its her timepass!!!

And the honourable judges...are even wonderful. They are notorously known for leaving the stage in between the contest...posing to be miffed or being really really upset with the participant. Seriously these men(mostly)..especially Himesh Reshamiya(our new bald,topiwala superstar)& Ismail Darbar are soooo irritating!!

How are we to know if the real talent would win? Its like a game show right? We vote& the no. of votes decide who wins. So people are emotional fools anyways, hence they vote.

Why do we get dragged into these silly games? We know this is a another facet of consumerism encroaching on the only freetime people get & when they should be spending with their families and not be sitting in front of the damned idiot box! Ufff then they blame on the generation gap!

As if the saas bahu sagas werent enough!!! Believe me no woman can be Parvati or Tulsi and yeah, marriage isnt the end of the world. So why? lolz...The ultimate question that is....WHY???

Of flop albums, numerous marriages& plastic surgeries(face change actually!!) , thats all what is left to see on the televisions today.

But no the government bans the Fashion Tv but they allow soft porn movies to be made..lolz.

Yeah i know, this outburst is actually due to the lack of attention i get at home...lolz kidding!

But then a mere mortal like me cant do much right? hehehe

Maybe cutting the cable wires would help...but darn they have dish tv's now!

So maybe something like the war of the worlds....may help? lolz

Mind vs the heart

Picture courtesy: Google. Only for representation purpose.
Standing on the highway, Roads leading both ways to somewhere, I stand still and wonder, Where do I belong?
The soothing lullabies of the green mist fairies call.  With promises to wrap me in the cool calm fog, Holding me in wet, gentle caresses, lulling the storm within. 
The call of the shrill, salt-laden sea sirens,  from the sun-baked rocks, Pull me back To join them as they make me one, in the fathomless abyss of wonders unseen. 
I lament my fragile being,  Born with one heart, not two, Torn between the ebb and flow of waves, And earthy scents in muddy dew. 
Both offer me refuge,  Cloaking me whole in their embrace, Dust to dust, flesh to flesh and soul to soul. 
In this battle between the mind and the heart, The heart but loses steam,  Leaving me stranded on a path to nowhere, never to be seen. 
My mind has been wrought with depression and all things crappy. This is a result of binge-watching a…

#Sorry not sorry

I feel sorry for ‘Sorry’ – such an abused term. When you come to think of it, it is just a word, right? It holds significance in some instance and at times, it is a mere excuse. But we humans absolutely love it as an excuse, don’t we? I use this term a lot; I mean a lot! I think of myself as a kind being, and hence, if I happen to push or ignore (deliberate), I say ‘sorry’. I say sorry for things that may not need a ‘sorry’. I say ‘sorry’ to people I am not really feeling sorry for (don’t read this the wrong way). In short, I say ‘sorry’ a lot like I have already admitted. It is my ticket to moving on, a ticket to redeem myself for mistakes and sometimes, tinged with slight sadness (maybe).


But is ‘Sorry’ the right word? Mean, is it even appropriate? Like they say, first you commit the murder and then say sorry. What is the point of it? I would say nothing. Sorry – the term originated from the West Germanic term Sore that evolved to Sarig, meaning pained or distressed. It is also known…

9 Things My Dog Taught Me About Life

And he has no clue…


I am guilty as charged. Per my husband, I spend every waking minute with my dog. If I am watching TV, he’s by my feet, if we plan an impromptu drive, he wants to come along, and at times, we do take him. My evening walks happen only because I have to take him. My social life is all thanks to him. And if you happen to mention the dog at a social gathering, I can go on and on about the pup even if we have nothing in common otherwise. Hell, I started an Instagram page just for the dog on popular demand!
I can assure you, though the husband isn’t convinced, that its all the dog’s doing. His popularity has only grown over the years, and who can resist those googly puppy eyes? He works his charm on all, irrespective of age, gender (partial to women though), color, and caste. He’s gentle with kids, super active with people who can keep up, he’s sensitive, always ready to share food (only yours) and so much more. His licks and cuddles have the power to melt glaciers and his …
