On being happy :)

    Of late, I have been feeling intensely low due to several factors. No, I am not going to discuss any of those factors here. However, after analysing the major reasons of my being unhappy, feeling low and depressed, I found that I am attaching, connecting my happiness to some other people’s attitude, behaviour, treatment towards me and the...

I love – love

  Love is, I agree, crazy. But just like all other fools who waste their time, effort, energy and money on love and on someone they love, I do that too. I love being in love. But wish it was easier to love human beings! One of the worst cons of loving someone too much is that the one you...

Veppilaikkatti a.k.a. South Indian Behuwa

Today I made Veppilaikkatti. It’s a South Indian savoury side dish, somewhat similar to behuwa (Assamese dish). But it has a hot and tangy taste to it. It goes well with curd rice or rice dal. I made it without the red chilli on request. Contact me for the recipe. The basic ingredient of this dish is lemon/lime leaves.

Night Out in Mumbai

I had a great night out tonight. First stop was the IMAX Dome for a movie, followed by 2 ice tea and paneer kebab. Then a drive around to reach our favourite hangout place for dinner. A Cosmopolitan, some Risotto Siciliano and some talk and laughter at the Pizza by the Bay followed. Then some dessert. Then a walk on the Marine...

Baandhon

Finally I managed go and watch the much-hyped (because it was released in PVRs and outside Assam) Assamese movie Baandhon by Jahnu Barua. Thanks to my brother +Hiranya Deka! Here is what I felt about the movie: Pros: The first concept of the love and hate relationship between the old couple was refreshing.  Acting by Bishnu Kharghoria, Bina Patangia, Jatin Bora, Zerifa...

Rape and India

There is something seriously wrong about some Indian men. It is becoming scarier by the day as more ghastly incidences of rape are coming out in the open. I do not understand why this is happening! (Or is it that such incidences are getting reported now!) What has changed that these perverts are losing complete conscience and raping baby girls?...

French Lover by Taslima Nasrin

The book French Lover by Taslima Nasrin speaks more than just about French lovers. It actually speaks the mind of a contemporary, educated and independent Indian girl desperately seeking her place in the world. A female reader will definitely be able to relate to the thoughts of the protagonist Nila’s feelings regarding household chores, financial independence, marriage and childbearing.  Nila’s...

the other song

What was your immediate thought when you read the name of this blog? Chances are, you thought or assumed that this blog would be on a particular song, right? Interestingly, it isn’t. It’s about an international institute of Homoeopathy. Yes, obviously it is different – and that is the reason it finds a  place in my blog. My best buddy...
