Half Girl Friend – Is it a Novel or a Movie Script?

Blog, Entertainment, Media
Half Girl Friend - Is it a Novel or a Movie Script? Half Girl Friend, the most talked novel of recent times, is authored by the famous and inspiring Indian writer Chetan Bhagat. While many modern bookworms criticize him for his style of simple, straight English and giving the desi touch with local slangs of words. I totally disagree with this aspect. He creates a picture perfect storyboard of Indian mentality, especially the lower middle class who struggle for their daily livelihood. He caters to that particular segment, which incidentally is more than 70% of India's population. His books have a particular formula, where he tries to make use of themes which depict Indians as they are. That is why they appear so corny to some of us. Moreover, few…

However, in 1853, a Bavarian immigrant named Levi Strauss, an astute merchant in San Francisco, responded to the increase in trade,…

It’s all about satisfaction

It’s all about satisfaction

Blog, Entertainment
Shades of My Life :) Its 6:00 PM in the evening. As I wake up from a power nap, within few seconds suddenly both my mind and heart speaks a lot about food, cooking, eating, dining, serving etc. May be I had dreams about food. And Yes! My taste buds are all agitated and hyperactive. In reality, my taste buds never get satisfied. And every time I look at food they start jumping and craving, just like how small kids jump and dance when they see toys. It might be hilarious, but the truth remains. Cooking has been my one of the few hobbies, which I have always tried to pursue till this time (will always continue to do so :)). My mother, who is a Cook by her profession, has been the greatest inspiration to…
