Missing you, Mumbai!

I dreaded going to mumbai!! But  now after coming back from there I am missing it so much.. I loved it as much as I hated it!

A beautiful home (note: I did  not say house!) at a luxury appartment, room mates like a family, work place at a walkable distance, everything within reach. No place has treated me so well until now (with the excemption of coimbatore, ofcourse).

I was just "Kumutha" to my roomies, and by the time it became "Namma Kumutha" I was kicked out of Bombay, kinda a thing that I bought upon myself! I was transferred to Chennai!! Well that story is for later..

I Loved Mumbai... hmmm.. THANE to be exact. I loved the local trains, even though they were crowded, they were on time. I loved the rickshaws!! Really!!

When you get a nice place to stay in, you eventually love the city. I guess that is what happened to me. I know I was one of the lucky people, my roomies themselves were homeless for the first few days. "Mumbai is the financial capital of India, everything is very professional, people in Mumbai are friendly and nice to you when you are nice to them... blah blah blah" - I was told before I left for Mumbai and how true they were!

You only realize something was good for you after losing it.

For the first time, I stayed in an apartment. We made our own food. Cooking was fun! Thats when we had all the fun. One cut the onions while the other took care of the dish on the Induction Stove. If atleast one good happened to me there, that is I learnt to live, cook and clean. :D my mother-in-law (when I have one) will not complain!

Friday evenings were for me to experiment in the kitchen. The very first dish that I cooked was a huge flop, because I did not know the thermodynamics and mechanics of the Induction stove :P. But, later I proved myself and my roomies that I am a decent cook and grew-up to a level where my roomies started asking for dishes from me. :D (I am so proud to say that :) )

Saturdays we walked to a shopping mall called the R-Mall on the Ghodbunder Road. We went there for nothing on one day and to buy a big bag full of groceries the next time.. It was our weekend spot, when we spent it at home.

Sundays were for cleaning the house :). Sweeping and cleaning the floors, rearranging the kitchen counters and washing the bathrooms. Yes, we did it all on our own, no need to worry about keeping your things safe and doing the monitoring when the maid is in.

At this moment I want to thank my roomies, Indu, Elavarasi, Jeni, Saranya, and Valli for making me feel at home in a city where I was sure that I was going to see hell, I was loved and accepted instead. I have fallen in love with Mumbai because of you girls. Love you all. :)

I have a lot more to say... that will come later :)

Manmadhan Ambu - A Late Review

A good try by Kamal Hassan. Even if not spectacular it isn't that bad!

Loved the casting. As usual Kamal steals the show, Sangeetha and Madhavan have done a good job. Trisha looks so polished in the movie! She can confidently dub for her roles from now on.

A flock of birds fly across the sky, Kamal looks at them and that tiny tear in the eye! Perfect!

Sangeetha!! Wow!! She is too good, really really good. And all those spoonerisms.. haha.. but sadly not many catch it.. well, thats typical in Kamal movies. The kid bodyguard is sooo cute!

Missed the Kamal Kavidhai a lot. Since the song is gone, we miss the moment the hero and the heroine fall in love.

May be if the movie was shortened into an hour and a half without some sentiments and songs it would have been more fast paced.

P.S: I am a Kamal Hassan fan. So if you think the review is biased, sure it is :) :) :)

From Frogs to The Prince!

What if I wrote short open letters to all the frogs that I met in my life? Don't ask me what triggered this thought process I don't remember now, mom brains! With a toddler around it is a miracle I managed to write this blog, all credits to the notes I wrote down.

I am not going to mention names here. But if you are in this list you will know its you.



Frog #1

I knew you weren't interested in me and that you were too good for me. But then, you were perfect for my adolescent hormones, thank you for that. But the way I turned out, you might regret letting me go unnoticed.

Frog #2

Man, I was bowled over by the brains and the intelligent banter. I was quite disappointed with the looks department but then was matured enough to let it go, until one fine day you turned out to be some psycho blah blah blah stalker types. I have absolutely no regrets.

Frog #3

This was a classic case of peer pressure. I liked you but crushing on you was a side effect of having mutual friends who tho…

To the fussy maiden!

I recently took part in a woman's forum meeting at work. The issue that was mostly discussed was men staring at women for their looks, their clothes etc etc etc.
I don't know how long it will take women to realize that when we dress up all glam, we are surely going to get some "appreciative" glances every now and then. Making a fuss about it is a waste of time! You could do that when you want to show off that you are getting some attention.
Women dress up, and men get attracted. Thats basic human nature. The animal instinct. You shouldn't be complaining about it!
The pervs do the wolf whistles and stuff to get attention. You should not react to them, react as in get angry, flirty, upset, happy, everything counts. That means that they win! This is one valuable lesson to remember: learn to ignore.
Nothing can rebuff them like being ignored.
I don't know how many ladies are going to get upset about this post, and I frankly think I am right.
If you do not have e…
