RIP Nirbhaya

Nirbhaya finally leaves this world leaving us all humans shaken with what happened to her .The whole act being loathed and condemned its time to galvanize masses for a movement for stricter policies and laws . The life of Nirbhaya should not go in Vain .We do not want any single case of such nature at all.period. How do we ensure women safety ? Unless the perverts have a sense of assured punishment, there is no way .Death penalty is easy way n is no good . A punishment that makes the criminals of such nature die every day in guilt and grief till he has his last breath . All this lies in our hands and to push the representatives of our democracy to pass laws and dictate harshest of the harshest punishments to the guilty. Im not sure how soon this going to happen .Sooner the better . R.I.P nirbhaya .

Life of Pi movie review

Life of Pi : A well told story . A class cinema( !mass) . No hidden dragon nor horses on Mountains , this Lee's movie will take you into a journey of Pi seeking answers to questions of his own about God and life . A fabulously shot , excellent in graphics and great screenplay . In the end as a audience you get to have your own "Pi" takeaway ,out of this delicious cake served by Lee . I m feeling so calm and ever more positive ! .Suraj Sharma has the whole " Pi" to himself in this movie . Cheers Suraj Great Job! . I guess that is enough food for thought for you folks to walk to the booking site/counter . Push your seats back and enjoy the journey of Pi . :) I give **** Cheers! Note : patience required . As some scenes appear more like monologues and sometimes its just only the scenes that do the talking .

jism 2 movie review

At the outset Jism 2 is a story revolving around Isna ( Sunny)a porn star ,Ayan (Arunoday) a cop and bad guy (ex-cop) Kabir ( randeep ) . The film starts with the ending sequence and continuing with the flashback during which another flashback to show the relationship between Isna and Kabir .Which later progresses to her being used as pawn by ayan through her jism and her own revenge.What follows is Mediocre. Honesty ,this 132 minutes film feels like eternity .The treatment of the story is nice ,however the screenplay is loose and story lacks the pace and punch . Some plusses : Good camera work and Showcasing sunny in very Sensual and aesthetic way. As a first timer Sunny does a good job with her lines and expressions .watching sunny without watching her previous work , is bliss. think we can see more of her in future .pooja uses the canvas well to narrate the story very colourfully. Randeep hooda too does a neat job with his intense dialogue delivery . Arunoday was ok. Ditto for music . Minusses: Most of the sequences were predicatable. . weak screenplay and story plays spoilsport . The promos were very promising and I desired for a powerpacked story from Mahesh Bhatt . Alas ,Desire is the root cause of ... you know that . A 2.5 stars .Watch if u have time ,patience and Sunny on mind :) .

TCS world 10k 2012 success story

With what started as a greed for medals , my inclination to runnining now has tranformed to being a " way of life " . After slashing the weight figure by 12 kgs since Jan 2012, I was feeling better and lighter . I had set my eyes on TCS world 10k marathon 2012 edition and vowed to improve my timing, with friend JJ at work being my reference [ he clocked almost an hour last time around and got a enviable Nike dri-fit shirt] .With my last year timing of 1 hr and 20 minutes and with my current weight this felt impossible.


I spread the marathon virus to some of my friends and family members. And yes they succumbed and we started training from April .With Vishu being the first to join the brigade , Dippy , bhanu , santosh ,sunay to follow .The group inflated with Sanj's , Chan's , Shru's,steff, kiran , Smith's ,Gan's and PP by mid of May. Santosh and Sunay pledged to run next time . With all fervour we trained and did very bengalooru thing : Breakfast at MTR's on Sunday .All the run ,all the fun during training kept our spirits on high till the race day .


All of my cousins camped at my place and at the break of dawn we headed to stadium . With the crowd swarming up at an exponential rate we secured ourself in the holding area . It was 8.00am when we heard Go and by the time I crossed the start line it read 8.04 . With a crowd of almost 9000, covering the first 2km was herculean .I had resolved to run despite this. I cleared , ran on footpath ,off the median and gained momentum and maintained the same till the end . When I reached the finish line it It was 9:00:55 am .I was elated and ecstatic .After gasping for breath and cooling down I said to my innerself "Mission possible ! " . I beat JJ , will get the Cool Nike drifit Shirt that says " IM A FINISHER " !!! and to top it all timing within 1 hr ...wow!!!. I have raised the bar and set target for the later half of the year.Watch out for this space and say Amen! :)
My Numbers :
Overall Rank 759
Category Rank 510
Gender Rank 746 00:56:46 at an Avg Speed of 10.57 Kmph

Kudos to all for being " FINISHER "!!! : Chan's , Shru's ,Sanj's ,Smith's ,Pooj's,vishu, dippy, bhanu , Gan's , Kvb, PP .

Vicky Donor movie review

Wah , Wah , wha! . Apllause Applause . LOL . These are some of the colective experiences you would have when watching the movie. At the outset , Sperm Donation itself being such a taboo to be discussed , a movie on the same subject is quite bold . This is movie about Vicky Arora , unemployed , helping son in mothers 'parlour waxing , massaging and no source of income , comes to notice of a doc curing infertility . The doc hell bent on getting his sperms and to get him to be the donor , as he sees the sachin tendulkar , bradpitt in him . After lot of convincing and lab tests Vicky becomes the Donor . Donor with DNA of Supreme Aryan race.Now the story takes a turn from here on . How he falls in love and the twist and turns in the story . All this makes you applaud the direcotr and the writer for treating a story on sperm donation and a love story with such finnese. The handling of climax is worth applauding .At times there is much of punjabi tadka comin .Nevertheless with my Delhi Noida experince I was able to laugh genuinely on the punju dialogues .havin a punju frind wud be of instant reference in case u miss out on the laughs . Really the nominations for Best Director / Writer /Story /screenplay is already set for this years Film Awards . The music is just Ok .Paani da song being my Fav's. Aayushmaan /Annu kapoor /Dolly Ahluwalia/Kamlesh Gill have done perfect justice to the roles . I loved Biji's role . So now , Just don get the sperm word rush in your head , just rush to the theater and enjoy its a Good watch .

My encounter with World's 7th highest

It was sharp 5.45am when I was at Mandala street . With cold winds cutting the face I checked in to the group that was heading to venue . The minibus serenading on the serpentine road and sedating me most of the 4 hrs way from Kathmandu .After a welcome message by the resort staff we assembled at the central bar/lounge .We were to be weighed before we started our Madventure ;) .
" Arun Sachidananda , from India " Wow! never felt so represented so far . Every step I took towards the sacle , I counted on the calories I stacked on a recent marriage trip and at the trek .With almost trembling feet and a curious look at the scale ,I stood on the mega weighing machine . " Seventy Five , Next Jonathan from UK " Came the announcemet to all.Sigh of relief . After coming down 8 Kgs since Jan , this number kept my head and motivation high .I was Marked " B1S 75" . All of us were segregated based on the weight . With a steady step I moved on the ropeway bridge . Every time i looked down the bridge my heart and ba*** almost popped out from mouth .
There I was at the edge of the wedge ,on the bridge . My mind at its work , pumping the adrenalin steadily and testosterone already at its peak levels . I was the first one to initiate the act . Lots of expectation from self and others . " Ok. ready ... Waaan... Toooo.. three... go...." I'm all in the air ,tied by a rope, at 140 km/hr speed and my harmones rushing in my head 280 km/hr ;) for about 4 seconds. I felt light , felt good and free .I did it! . My first Swing , my first ever , what i call as Adventure Orgasm and am asking for more , cos Zindagi Na milegi Doobara . Cheers! :) CLICK HERE TO SEE

JJ In focus SS Out of focus
KVB at His Natural Best
After an hour drive from chikamagalur we were in kemmanagundi . After having the lunch at the vegeterian hotel we headed to trek . Between kemmanagundi and the raj bhavan is the gateway to Z point on a hairpin bend . With all the walking and talking after about one and a half hour we were at the Z point Summit . .O I alkmost forgot , on the way to Kemmangundi fromm chikamagalur at Attigere one has to definitely stop at Coffe Barn Cafe . Once u r out of it U feel Coffe Day 's are so out and Coffee Barn is So in...








from here on I'll allow the picture to do the talking .

























After the ascent it took about an hoour to come back to the Gateway point . It was all fun and frolic all the way back to Bangalore .With our hearts bleeding and minds forcing to move on, on the thought of Bengalooru and work , we reached halfhearted .

Wedding and Wilderness , Day1 Wedding

One our good friends Anupama was getting married .With a bunch of us , invitees, got togather and etched a paralle plan for trek to Kemmangundi post wedding .



[ L-R : SS , AV ... ]

We started our preparation With almost the same fervour as the wedding . Travel stay and other trek details being jotted and planned we headed to Hassan . The fun started right from the pick ups with SS, AV , JJ , SPB , SP , PP .Our other Friends KVB , PK, GN comin on a Safari .





















After plucking PP from safari , we were seven . The journey started with a deliberation on the games to play . With a oposition to amazingly mediocre Antakshari , SS popped the idea of Mafia game . All of us heeded to SS and stated the game . Boy that was one hell of fun . Once we were staurated with the Mafia game , Dumbchrades was the democratic choice .



There we go . Fun on the ride. PP, JJ n me against the mighty SPB SP SS and AV . U know what was the first movie name we got . Apocalypso !!! . At the time of hearing i din knwo a thing apt from the meaning of the word . My mind raced along to act . With me showing the destruction and world ... ours truly PP ... sait Apocalypso!!! ... " O O ... wow!! hi 5 , hugs and embraces later we :P'ed the opponents and decided to take a revenge for such atrocity against us . Then we tossed Gattaca . They struggled and succmbed . Ye!!! . relived . Finally it was Bellur cross we had to brake our fun for some food .
With our chauffer sugesting the Mayura Hotel off the highway at bellur cross we seated ourselves there . After binging on the fab food we headed to Hassan . O I almost forgot , the Palk Panner there is Fantastic . Absolutely soft and spongy . The place is neat clean hygenic and service fast and prompt .



[Lighter moments , after food some thoughts ;) ,L-R : JJ AV SS PP ]



This how good the food was :) ... I loved it !


Mayura Hotel , Bellur Cross Bangalore Hassan Highway , 10/10 .


Final shot before start L-R :SPB SP .

With a heay stomach some of us resigned from having fun and choosing a siesta . Again a stopover at Relax Dhaba after bellur to catchup with buddies KVB , PK nd GN .The milestone read 58km .

Relaxing

With only less than hour to travel our energy sprung back and there we were at it agian talkig talking crapping , we were in halebeedu .





















The place itself made us wonder about the attention details in the sculptures Jakanachari had at that time and to the culture that were existing at that time . With some of spotting some mature content sculptures and wondering about that culture at that time too. ;) . A quick shoot and long thoughts we headed for the actual purpose , Anupamas wedding reception .














We were at our PI behaviour off work too , we were ahead of time . the girls freshned up and came up really colourfully dressed . After a wait of an hour Anupama and Satwik were on stage .We immediately went on stage , we wished her happiness and revied their hospitality and bid bye to them and headed to chikamagalur.





Finally the muhartham picture .

With some earthshattering laughs and gags on the way back we were welcomed by Kaunteya Hotels pvt ltd's "The Planters Court" at chikmagalur . It was past midnight when we embraced the Bed to retire for the day . Of the weddng and the wilderness .We were 50 % done. Hoping for a good other 50%.
