Filmy music: Current situation

June 19, 2012


I am a big fan of Hindi film music (not a fan of the term Bollywood). Of late the choices are huge , the names are big but somehow the zing is missing. Lot of new music directors, singers are popping up but somehow the formula is getting repeated. Today’s formula (for the past 3-5 […]

The adventures in Delhi metro

February 27, 2012

With phase 3 coming up by 2016 it should have a  pretty large swathe of Delhi covered.  With the daily ridership reaching […]

The disgusting Road Transport (terrorist) Office

February 23, 2012


The Road Transport Offices (RTO)  of India (equivalent of DMV in US) are the biggest if not the most corrupt bodies in India. Nothing more terrifies me than visiting a RTO or a passport office in India. If we look at the baseless numbers thrown by media for telecom and CWG scam running into lakhs […]
