Fact File : MHOW

Have you guys seen the Madhya Pradesh Tourism advertisement? ‘Hindustan ka dil dekha…’ Isn’t it awesome? I totally lov it! Not only is the jingle catchy, the concept was clutter breaking and most of all – enjoyable. For me the thought of Madhya Pradesh takes me to the years I’ve spent in Mhow. Mhow?!? Haven’t […]

Review: The Only Place, Museum Inn Road – Bangalore

The only place is one place most old timers will know of. It used to be THE place to go to for juicy steaks, delicious burgers and cheesy pastas. The location has changed but the place is still the same, for better or for worse. The restaurant apparently got its name long back as it […]

Shopping @ South Delhi

I once saw a fuchsia pink ambassador (India’s oldest and most iconic car), driven by a Blonde European Lady, outside South Extension Market, with the back seat filled with Nalli & Benetton shopping bags: an image that forever will make me smile. Well! Delhi is all about contradictions – unusual things usually happen here. The […]

Dev D review

Dev D is the latest incarnation of the epic Devdas by Saratchandra Chattopadhyay. The idea of the movie might be from the book but the implementation is anything but. My first thought on Dev D – What a weird name for a movie ! What an eccentric song (emotional attyachaar) ! What a bizarre promo […]

Taxing Time

It’s that time of the year again when reminders from the finance & Hr dept are filling up our mail box. ‘Investment Declaration’, ‘Tax’, ‘Exemption’, ‘HRA’, ‘Flexi’ are the only thing one hears about.
