My Aunty's Pooja room, every mallu in kerala has puja rooms in their house.

I am not surprised why Kerala is called Gods Own Country.

Chai - Kerala Style

Chaiwallahs in Kerala are damn cool they will stir and mix your super kadak Kanan Devan Dust Chai in this amazing ritual of tossing it from 4ft into a tiny glass without spilling a drop.

I wish they served Whiskey n Soda like this :)

No one lives here anymore, as all my cousins are out of kerala and after my Grandfather expired there is no one to take care of it.

I hope am able to restore it to a better condition and relive the memories that are attached to the house.

Breakout Point @ Myzus

Some cool new developments happening currently at Myzus, I think we have reached the breakout point and the next few months promises to be exciting.

We are also looking for some cool techies, do check out and feel free to ping me if you want to be part of a cool tech company.

Also this week saw our investors do some real studdgiri where Lehman Brothers acquired a major stake Brics' institutional business.

Puke of the day

Shiv Sena leader Manohar Joshi said that theirs was ‘a jail bharo andolan similar to the one led by Mahatma Gandhi during the freedom struggle’.
The mob — reportedly protesting the proposal of setting up a special economic zone (SEZ) in Raigad district — attacked people and their vehicles.
Joshi himself has bought a property worth 400 crores to build a mall and complex in Dadar.
Read da mayhem report
This shit reminds of my friend Nilesh, a loyal shiv sainik, who always fought for the right of the Marathi manoos all his life many years ago he was taking his sick aunty or someone to Jaslok  hospital and the shiv sena mob broke his car window shield and nearly bashed him up. 
I wish all the idiots who participated in the mayhem get a bigger punishment as I doubt any of these fuckers have cars.

Just Pondering

Is it right to expect friends to take leave and travel to attend your events, Or I guess its asking to much in today's rat race..
Or maybe I'm from a different school of thought...

Anyways WTF somethings I personally don't subscribe too and can't surely not expect others..

but then there are exceptions to it too...

Orkut celebrates Indian Independence

One more reason to love Orkut :))

Chak De India

ChakDeIndia, originally uploaded by Bombayite.

The film is based on Mir Ranjan Negi. The goalkeeper of the Indian Hockey Team which lost 7-1 to Pakistan in Asian Games Hockey Final, back in 1982 who later came back to coach India to Asian gold in 1998 and the womens common wealth gold in 2002.

The movie is well directed by Shimit Amin whose earlier movie " Ab Tak Chappan" which I also liked.

SRK and the all the hockey girls have played and acted well, the patriotic scenes do really give you the goose bumps.

I wont tell you all the story but its definitely worth watching and the timing is just perfect for a great Independence week.

And yes more people will play hockey and support hockey.

I give 4/5 Points.

HT Yellowpages

HT Yellowpages
Funny Ad in HT Yellowpages today :))



Naseeruddin Shah, Sarika ,Corin Nemec , Parzan, Pearl , Directed by Rahul Dholakia

Based on a true-life incident, about a Parsi couple searching for their son who has been missing since the Gujarat riots.

This movie hurts you, pains you.. makes you wonder if you are living in the 21st Century.. What drives people to do such mayhem and pogrom.
Fundamentalists on both sides Hindus and Moslems kill innocents on both sides, The government plays puppet and no justice is done.. I doubt whether it will ever be done.


Gujarat riots was the first televised riots and hence the memories and images are still fresh in the minds of the people, Bombay and Delhi riots were not televised but mere reported with censorship ... Victims there also are yet to get justice...

At least now people on both sides somewhat realise that they are just mere tiny pawns in the big game played by politicians using each ones imaginary friend.

At times I think The Commies are a zillion times better at least they fight for real issues Labour, Land Reforms, Foreign Policy etc not for some Temple or Rath Yatra.

I pray we celebrate the 60th year of Independence with the hope that every Indian no matter which religion or caste or colour or ethnicity is protected by a Government who doesn't shy away from its Raj Dharma and the Army is given the freedom to protect its people in case the government fails to do it

Having said that, I still believe India is the greatest country and I still have faith in our young democracy and am bullish that it will prevail.

Jai Hind..

Parzania on Wiki

The movie is banned in Gujarat and was never released there.

HawaBaan Harde

HawaBanHarde, originally uploaded by Bombayite.

Have you guys eaten this??

It looks like Rat dropping but its an amazing addictive thing.. a zillion times better than Hajmola or Chatpat :))

I used to eat a lot when I was a kid, managed to get hold of a packet this week at the local chemist.

Great products never advertise.. think Yahoo, think Starbucks, think Google, think Skype... think Hawa Baan :))

Eat one Goli to an amazing chatpata taste..

Caution : Hawaban Harde is the ulimate blasting WMD's to tackle farting gujjus whom come return from Goregaon-Malad to catch seat in Borivli :))

Cash 2/5

Cast:Ajay Devgan, Ritesh Deshmukh, Zayed Khan, Arjun Rampal, Esha Deol, Shamita Shetty, Diya Mirza
Direction:Anubhav Sinha

The only reason CASH is watchable for the Glam Babes and Decent Stunts & 2 good songs... baaki da movie has no major plot and drags a lot even lacks background score at many important scenes.. even the animation is a major bore..

Watchable once juss for da glam babes & Stunts... 2/5 points
