-- boss is on leave
-- parking lots are emptier,
-- trees don't have a leave left
-- next-desk colleague 'who-keeps-his-left-eye-on-my-screen' is working from home...
-- office front desk flooded with cookies n chocolates
-- a deadline to meet, but no mood to work.
-- as usual, 'm distracted,
-- thinking about spending next month back home doing nothing :-)
-- Weather Gods are doing some sort of experiment, it drizzles in morning, in noon sun shines at its best, in evening again drizzling resumes, and in night drizzling becomes rain n lots of rain accompanied with high-speed winds making howling sounds whole night..or till the time I sleep.

-- n I'm wasting time,
-- moments of nothingness
Or hmmm...ahhh......dunno.........crap!!!

Two wrongs make a right!! -- That’s the new BCCI mantra!
Failure of everyone in ODI series resulted in Dada's recall. :-)

'Bande poore nahi ho rahe.....'

When I was a kid, in our 'block' there used to be two cricket teams, one kinda 16+ and other one of say 12+ olds, whenever 'senior' team were short of guys they used to include some of us under- 12 boys to make count 11, though most of the time they used to place us at thirdman for fetching the balls from boundary :-( , but whoever got selected used to feel proud :-) .....

Exactly same scene is with Indian team, bande poore nahi ho selectors decided to include Ganguly :-)
After all, atleast on papers his name looks better than 'Kaifs/Rainas/Mongias and Raos' :-)

Time for a listing my Top 5 good , ok-types and bad movies of 2006

Top 5 good ones ::
1) Omkara
2) Rang de basanti
3) Lage Raho Munna Bhai
4) Khosla ka ghosla
5) Dor

Top 5 ok-types time-pass ::
1) Don - The Chase Begins Again
2) Yun Hota Toh Kya Hota
3) Darwaaza bandh rakho
4) Taxi No. 9211
5) Pyar Ke Side Effects

Worst 5 ::
1) Kabhi Alvida na kehna -- K Jo should be banned for 5 years.
2) Fanaa -- Lifetime ban is not enough for Kunal Kohli.
3) Phir hera pheri -- Priyadarshan, should be put under house-arrest to reduce 'confusions' in his life.
4) Baabul -- Director should be hanged/shot/buried/burnt and ashes should be dumped in 200 feet pit.
5) Darna Zaroori Hai -- RGV, someone please drag him out of his office and show him there is more to life than his make-believe underworld.

Its tough to come back to work after 4 days at home,

-- Visited Mystery spot for second time, and coincidently visited the same place on same day last year too. Seriously this place should be renamed as 'Desi Spot', its soo full Indians and they should consider hiring a 'desi' guide.

-- Also updated my photoblog, and more snaps to come!!

same day dekh kar kari badhi bhool :-(

Ravi Chopra should be banned from industry immediately, seriously I feel he should seek career in something like event management rather!!

Kabul Express, -- a mediocre documentary movie, made with sole purpose of exposing Pakistan's much maligned dual-policies.

During whole movie, I mistook Salman Shahid for Goofy Paintal :-(
There is absolutely nothing to write about the movie, it was just plain documentary, that’s it.

Yes, this place revolves ard , bollywood and cricket :-) at least these topics keep it going.
Lately work and other commitments kept me away from it, and our team's performance post-WI tour contributed a lot.

Now at last, some good news flowed, first win in SA, and justice being delivered in Jessica Lal case, and loved the way Judges quashed arrogant Jethmalani's arguments.
