Just YouTube and hum 'Kolaveri Di'

28 Nov 2011, 17:09

Just listened to it. And I'm just awestruck ! No words in my dictionary to explain how awesome is the song. No, I ain't talking about some soulful music or deep meaning song. But yes, the "nonsense” song of the year "Kolaveri Di".

Kill Kasab !

26 Nov 2011, 15:45

Last time when I went to my hometown, I saw ten little cousins of mine, all of them armed with AK-47. Hold a second, let me clarify. No, kid cousins aren't militants (Not everyone in Manipur is a militant, at least, spare the kids please!). They were just playing shootout with their plastic guns.

Roti, kapda aur BB!

12 Oct 2011, 16:03

My day is incomplete sans you. Before anyone starts misinterpreting it, let me clarify that I am talking about the unavailability of BlackBerry services specially its messenger (BBM) for three consecutive days which is getting on my nerves now. It's only been a couple of months that I got my new BB (gift from Papa), but it seems I have been using it for years now. It really has made an impact on my life. I eat, sleep and breathe BB particularly BBM.

I detest 'Apple', love Jobs

6 Oct 2011, 12:16

Had shock of my life on Thursday morning. Steve Jobs, Apple Inc co-founder, no more. Shock because I have this strange connection with him and of course, with apple. This Apple visionary-who transformed the world of computing, music, mobile, tablets- changed my life as well

But, I'm used to partiality...

9 Aug 2011, 21:31

I can fool my mind easily and can divert it on more 'grievous issues' than Manipur issue like inflation, cricket, Rakhi Sawant’s new boyfriend, Aishwarya Rai’s pregnancy and the like. But how can I control my heart? It aches a lot when I see my state and issues being sidelined. Yes, it hurts a lot!

Journey from Facebook to Delhi Belly

7 Jul 2011, 09:00

Yes, it’s crazy. And it’s a perfect weekend movie. I am talking about Imran Khan starrer ‘Delhi Belly’. Done with the office work on Saturday, I thought it would be a great fun to go out and watch a movie (my idea of ultimate fun). But whosoever I asked, they had some or other problem.

A B'day gift to me, with love from Papa

30 Jun 2011, 10:11

It's that time of year again and it comes again and again. Ya, it's a time for party, laughter, music, sweets, drinks and all these sans that someone special? Ammm...possible :(... But sans friends? Ya, you hit it right...still, let me say it...It's impossible!

DK Bose on my mind

1 Jun 2011, 10:35

Gone are the days of Munni and Sheila; it's time for DK Bose. DK Bose has not only chased 'Badnaam Munni' and 'Jawan Sheila' but has also left them way behind. No, no, he is not after some 'Tinku' or 'Laila' or any other item girl. And then he is not interested in anyone of them...

Time to reveal 8-year-old secret

11 Apr 2011, 16:52

Life changes persistently; so does the life style – the way of thinking and perceiving things. But some memories just aren't meant to be forgotten, while some secrets are simply meant to be unveiled.

Roads full of fools!

29 Mar 2011, 14:18

Driving on Indian roads could be one of your most terrible experiences. Being a driver is a curse in India. It hardly matters whether you are in a Mercedes or Maruti 800. When the roads are jam- packed and filled with chicken-headed people, it really doesn't count on which Ac car you are traveling.

Anything for a cause

16 Mar 2011, 11:55

Youth love to support any cause and they never fail to flaunt what they support. Be it global warming, slum issues, deforestation, child labour, female infanticide, gay rights and recently Japan's cause; yes, you name it, they have it.

100th Women's Day, who cares !

8 Mar 2011, 12:42

Will a saree-clad lady serving tea in a roadside stall ever care that there is a special day to celebrate her gender? Or for that matter, your own maid who daily comes to your house for cleaning and cooking will give a damn that there is a day calle

Dear Tropicana, I can't leave you

28 Feb 2011, 16:47

A small packet of juice and a plate of maggi fill my stomach every morning in the office. I know mine is not a healthy breakfast. Barring maggi, the remaining menu, yes, only the juice is healthy

Buying a perfect groom

19 Feb 2011, 16:34

Sale, sale, sale! Buy one, get 50% off, seasonal discount up to 70% . Yeah, yeah, you got it right. It's a season of discounts and sale. You can avail any benefits you want at anytime but of course *conditions apply*.

Pay us or face the music

19 Feb 2011, 16:00

"Pay 50 lakhs or face action.” A common threat that the people of Manipur get every now and then from the mushrooming militants in the state.
