Had my visa interview yesterday. A very hectic and tiring day, as was expected. The rest of the experience was the same as my dear sis Sonia described in her blog; tokens, rush, waiting and finally the interview etc.

Just to add a personal flavour to my entry, I will tell you about yesterday’s experience minus what you already know. I made two good friends. One was a Gujarati lady who was amicable and had a pretty smile. She was a godsend. Without her, the five-hour long and boring wait in the embassy would have been mayhem in hell. Thank God she was there. I pity the other uncles and aunties who were not as lucky as me and their faces were frozen to a steady expression of boredom. Some observed the volunteers roaming around involuntarily, some yawned consistently, ladies were busy hushing their noisy kids, and the guys (some of ‘em) were busy looking around for some eye-tonic.

Finally when I got out of the office, I saw my dad waiting outside. I smiled at him, signaling that I got the visa. He later described how other people came out of the office with either a ‘thumbs-up’ or a ‘thumbs-down’. I came with a smile. I am different you see..haha..there I go again!

In the evening I attended a garba function. There I met another would-be good friend. She was a stranger but didn’t look like one. Paradoxically, I felt I have met her many times. We watched people play garba in colorful costumes, enjoyed different food items from various stalls and then finally did try to hit the crowded dancing floor. And yeah, we managed to get into the groove with thousands of other people.

All in all, yesterday was a fun day. Dad is right, I am lucky.

read this poem somewhere. whoever wrote this i would like to ask him,

"how did you know my state of mind?"

not a word here, not a word there. it's esactly what i am feeling right now. it's truely a mysterious roller-coaster of life..A WHIRLPOOL OF SORTS.

it goes like this -

"Try to be pure at heart, they arrest you for robbery,
Mistake your shyness for aloofness, your shyness for snobbery
Got the message this morning, the one that was sent to me
About the madness of becoming what one was never meant to be"

thanks mr "anonymous" for giving words to my feelings..i was trying hard to do that. n i feel light already.

There you are, JD and team, with another very different kettle of fish. I love this serial called ‘BAA BAHU AUR BABY’ like many other people for its unique approach and content. Here are some other reasons why I would give it the title of ‘the king of indian tellywood’ –

The content, which fabricates a fuzzy line between reality and fiction. Audience almost always carry twin emotions of the hope of getting into practice what they see and at the same time feel the itch of the fictional aspect of the story; the feeling that is left after the curtains fall on the episode.

In the days of dismantled families, where people prefer to stay in their cocoons and isolate themselves from their own blood relations, deliberately, it’s an eye candy to watch a family tied together with the thread of tradition, values and discipline.

The serial is rather a series of small incidents surrounding the ‘thakkar parivar’, a gujrati family, who face every endeavour in life hand-in-hand, be it supporting and encouraging a member to win a competition, no matter how big or small it is, or dealing with a life threatening disease paralyzing the other. They are together in every trying moment. It’s so good to see a family tied together in such a strong way. The producers know this. And hence almost every single episode ends with a lesson well learnt.

Salutes to the editor-in-chief who keeps the serial untouched from the ‘madras cuts’; the dizzying transitions, which squint the eyes.

Actors are fantabulous. All are experienced and fit extremely well in the characters.

After dishing out hits like ‘Instant Khichadi’ and Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai, Baba, Bahu aur Baby continues to rule the hearts of the audience.


JD, Aatish and Devang rock!!

Whoopi!! My sis is on TV!!!

And no, it wasn’t some street interview or a ‘bheed-bhaddaka, dhakka-mukki’ gang dying to show their faces to the camera. And it also wasn’t a ‘blink and miss’ kind of blurry background of passers-by that she was a part of.


‘24 FPS animation awards 2006-2007’evening was colorful and vibrant with the presence of who’s who of the animation world like internationally renowned producer-director Mr. Ketan Mehta & Chairman, Adlabs, Mr. Manmohan Shetty to name a few and sizzling performances of amazing dancers and the stand-up comedy of our heroes of laughter-championships followed by much more excitement and fun.

The grand evening of celebration of creativity and achievement presented by Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics (MAAC), was a showcase of the best and fresh animation talent in India.

There were several award categories, for which students had to prepare specific contents rather than submitting their existing ones.

Now, that’s no mean feat!

My sis and her team ‘SNAPSHOTS’, won the award for the category ‘Best Pre-Production’, for their film ‘Ban Ki Chidiya’.

The festival was broadcasted throughout the country on NDTV Profit.

Hey Gurl! You’ve made us all proud!!
