Pop goes the bubble

6th April 2014

What happens to your thoughts? The important ones, I mean. Those that you want to underline with every neon colour you can find. Bold, italicise, the ones you resolve to never strike out. But then there are the superscripts. The asterisks. The ifs and the buts. Conditions that you apply. The letters begin to jumble into a nonsensical string of characters, the font gets smaller and smaller until your head is blank again. A clean slate, a fresh start. Repeat.…

BMTC Girl’s Rules

20th February 2011

I’ve been meaning to write this for a while. Everyday, for the past 3 years, I travel by BMTC bus from my home to college and back.  As I write this, I realize that no matter how much I grumble and mutter about the hassles of using public transport, Bangalore actually does have a pretty efficient bus system that many people do not take advantage of, or are simply not aware of.  I have come to cherish my bus journeys…

WRITER

7th November 2010

Sometimes, I wish I had one of those jackets that Richard Castle has which state what he is, in loud bold letters for the whole world to see – WRITER. I say this because, even if at the most superficial level, it’s some kind of identification. It sets him apart from not only his non colleagues but maybe even his peers. WRITER. See? So simple, so confident. It just rushes off your tongue like a gush of air. Whoosh. Powerful, yes? But…

First impressions of Masterchef India

17th October 2010

When I began to watch Masterchef Australia (Season 2) on television, my mother looked at me with surprise and said, ”But you don’t even show any interest in cooking! And you hate the cookery shows I watch during lunch time!” (She would know. Lets just say, battles have been fought over this!) Anyway, I became an ardent fan of Masterchef NOT because it’s a ‘show about cooking’ but it’s a show that concentrates on the food itself, on the challenges that contestants…

Negative Me

8th March 2010

It’s been a while like I felt like this. Filled with negative energy, I might say. Usually this is the point where I burst into an angst filled poem that never manages to be read by the intended recipient. I can’t very well go up to someone and say here, I wrote you this and proceed to watch as their face contorts into a question mark, can I? What would YOU do if some crazy girl wrote a hate poem…

The office fantasy

17th February 2010

Somehow, the past couple of months have gotten me so “consumed” by “the system” that I’m really wondering if the whole creative-person-who-can-write thing was a really long phase, and maybe I’m really meant to be one of those people who sits behind a desk and stays there for long periods of time. But then I would be one of those people with a desk filled with stacks of post-it’s. The pen stands (yes, for there will be many) will be…

Stop telling me things!

28th October 2009

You know I just realized.. Because we are all so ”connected” and living in age where information disseminates so quickly, and so fast, it’s difficult to hang on to life’s ‘SURPRISE!’ moments anymore. Case in point is the way the movie business has changed, I think. I’m doing everything in my power to stay away from stills/videos/blah related to the New Moon movie but it’s just so difficult! I have Perez Hilton tempting me with photographs from the sets, but…
