Black Adder


Rowan Atkinson gets to his sarcastic best as the 'evil' Black my current favorite series.
I have watched 3 seasons and my all time fav is season 2, with Miranda Richardson at her hilarious best playin the Queen of England.

Amazing set pieces and awesome dialogue makes this one of the best series I have watched!

Scrabble Crazy

I have always loved word games, my morning starts with crossword and coffee. The day goes with setting and solving anagrams with friends over sms or sometimes in office with colleagues.

Now its scrabble that makes an entry into my day. A game of Scrabble over lunch and one at 7:30 pm makes the day at office seem complete.
Scrabble on Saturdays in Barista on Brigade road, sipping cold coffee is just icing on the cake :D


A ClockWork Orange


This movie is awesome, the music, the direction and the acting make it a cult classic. Just when I was beginning to like Stanley Kubrick's style of direction, I happened to watch Lolita (1962) .....a pathetic overrated movie. Only Peter Sellers worked for me in there, and hence I give Kubrick one more try with 'Dr Strangelove'

Current Mood...

Yeh Mahalo, Yeh Takhto, Yeh Tajo ki duniya
Yeh Insaan ke dushman samajo ki duniya
Yeh daulat ke bhooke riwajo ki duniya
Yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaaye toh kya hai....

(I thought of translating this...but I would not do justice to it.)

Dumb Charades :D

Back to College, to conduct/judge the 'Dumb Charades' event.... it was decent. The new auditorium is huuuuuuge (supposedly the biggest in Bangalore), the quality of the teams...umm average I would say, the best team was able to get just 10 words in a minute. I remember us cracking around 34 in a minute at our peak and most of our rival teams acheving similar numbers :)

Overall the intensity that I used to see from all teams back then seems to be mising now :(
( I see similar things happening on the 'mad-ads' scene unfortunately)

But i enjoyed revisiting the same forum where I started always gives me a nostalgic feeling to go back and Judge an event i used to participate in !

Overall excellent 2 hrs spent.

Quote of shame!

"I think it quite possible that I could have dispersed the crowd without firing but they would have come back again and laughed, and I would have made, what I consider, a fool of myself."

— Dyer's response to the Hunter Commission Enquiry.

After the firing was over, Official sources place the casualties at 379. According to private sources, the number was over 1000, with more than 1200 wounded, and Civil Surgeon Dr Smith indicated that they were over 1800. The figures were never fully ascertained for political reasons.
