Super Heros

Superman`s confidence has always left me in awe. It is not easy to wear your underwear over your trouser and yet walk tall on a busy road. As if wearing ones underwear over ones trouser was not enough…he also had a big ‘S` for ‘Sucker` on his chest. Not to mention that red flowing ‘bridely` …

Rekha and I differ in our opinion

Rekha and I have started differing in our opinion. Not that we did not differ earlier. Now we differ more often. Our first difference of opinion was when we ended up loving different people. Eventually, we got married to different people. She married me and I married her. Not a good thing to start a …

Traffic update from my wife

Wonder if there were traffic policewomen 40 years back. Coz, if they were …I can be sure that in her previous birth Rekha was a traffic policewoman. From the moment she sits on my Yamaha at 8.30 a.m. till the time I drop her (at 8.50 a.m.) at her office, she gives live commentary on …

What is in a name

Shakespeare said it. And we have lived with it. But there is a lot in a name. Shakespeare who in one of his theatre production (think Romeo & Juliet) said “What is in a name. A rose by any name will smell the same.” I disagree. If that were so, why is Shah Rukh Khan …

Fashion Television and its impact

It is not easy being in showbiz. You got to be a show off, and you got to have something to show off. Like for example long, never-ending legs. Or a figure of 32, 28, 32. I am just close…34, 34, 34. Isn`t that the ‘size` of every other model that walks the ramp on …

Ice-creams

Today, Ice creams are not a rare commodity….thus turning the life of husbands (and in some cases boy friends) a torture. Not so long back, they were a rare commodity. Back then, kulfis were the big thing. Not to mention the ‘noodles` ice stick (it would have semiya embedded). Some say, that was the beginning …
