A little nothing ~ Satire


While everyday there are reports being published about selfie being a ‘psychological disease’, someone seems to be going around the world, across the seven seas, taking selfies with biggie-counterparts of other countries. Guess who?
 
On the other hand, there is someone who went on a secret hiatus to some foreign country and presumably coming back after having learnt yoga (for sitting in padmasana with farmers), kalaripayattu (to learn the fine art of balancing the eyes and trying not to squint) , how to talk sensibly in the parliament and vadra, vadra.. err vagera* vagera.
What the latter doesn’t realize is “once a dumba$$, always a dumba$$” (Used my friend’s one-liner here without permission, btw).
 
A mockery of a show! Well, yes, I am talking about the IPL. I am not a pessimist but Sherry pa ji is pushing the limits! If a game gets cancelled due to rain, play the damn serial ‘Sooryavansham’, we watch it tirelessly every time you telecast it after all!
 
When it is that time of the year when we thank the gods and goodness’ for the rains, they make us sing “Rain rain go away”, only to watch Kozli illegally romance Ashushkha :P We'd rather watch Shivanee the anchor as she sports her cute smile.

Phew! That was my try at ‘satire' and I am already tired! :D I didn’t have any clue what to write when I clicked on ‘New Post’ . Well, NaMo gave a good kick start! :)
 
Hope you liked it, folks! :)


* vagera (hindi) – etcetera

  2. It's difficult to mock people without knowing the full picture. But it's a lot of fun, I agree :)

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.



Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:





What is your favorite mango memory? share it with me here, won't you? :)

He could see her directly ahead through the shimmering blue glass window of Cafe Hafooda in Saket. The afternoon sun streamed along from the western side, casting long shadows across the table. Cyrus glanced up at Jennifer and then down at his mobile. 

JJ liked Cyrus but she had a lot of questions in her mind. What was he doing? Secretly texting someone? Investigating without her help? Trying to solve something before someone else is on it?
She was on this case with him. She wanted to do this for herself and for that little child and may be something more than she could comprehend. Whatever was his rationale, JJ decided to confront him. She spun herself around, sat down and found herself face-to-face with Cyrus. There was a sparkle in JJ’s eyes and Cyrus’s were menacing with thirst. Her tattoo seized Cyrus’s attention most. He was transfixed. There was some kind of ‘Ul…
