Bloody Hell


Watching shitty movies since 2011 has always been our tradition. R and I choose the worst movies and we don't know why. 

So we made the mistake of watching Rangoon.

I have never disliked any movie. I genuinely enjoy watching crappy cinema too, but Rangoon was next level bullshit. It has been a flop but I trusted a few friends who said it was good, so I decided to go for it. 

There are people who have seen it two times! I mean why and how! Also, what!
It made absolutely no sense. 
From a masked Kangana Ranaut jumping trains to save her lover, to some secret sword being transferred as a token of support for India to fight with the Britishers. To completely wrong costumes and fake visuals. This movie has everything absurd. To quote Julia from the film, it was "bloody hell". You will see the stars drinking "sake" and having sex in the sand. Now no woman from that era when a war is going on would do that with her lover especially when her fiance is somewhere near by. It finally ended with Saif Ali Khan rope walking!! R and I kept looking at each other whilst screaming out words like "huh", "what", "ehh", "noways", "crap".

The only thing good about the movie was that we got the tickets for cheap. It was a "wow" Wednesday at PVR, so basically it was an "only-women" show. We were just eight women in the whole "bloody hell" theatre! I wasn't complaining because I got a taste of how it feels to own a theatre! Plus we got complimentary coffee which is of no use when you give it to two ardent "Chai-fanatics".

The saving grace of my day was a Margarita pizza and a lot of talk-therapy with R. 

That's all for now. Sorry but there is absolutely no "rang" in Rangoon. Just stupid goons. 

Bloody Hell.

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Some "Arty" talk while he does Origami....

I have been trying to find time to write a post about my travels but it has been impossible to do that. They say you "got to make time", but sometimes there just isn't any time for anything! I sometimes wonder, where the hell are these precious minutes going?

It's a lazy Tuesday today and a full house. After a very elaborate lunch of chole and vadas, cake and custard along with some paan. K has slept off and I am feeling sleepy just looking at him. But no! I am going to write and then do some art.

Thankfully I have gotten a good number of commissions since I have come back. I have two more to do, which I shall start today. I finally got around to re-create an Islamic pattern few days back. I was so happy while making it but really devastated with the way it turned out. It took me ages just to construct the grid and then I colored them up using pens. Not very happy with the look and finish of the design. Realised I have a long way to go. I need much more practise. Actua…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
