I don't know how this post is gonna end, but it is definitely gonna start with what is happening at work.....To some extent it is adrenaline, fun etc....But since it is huuuge, you end up losing energy by the end of the day , too tired even to turn on the stereo as you drive through the madness of a 8:45 dry and cold night of Bangalore. I dont want to remind myself of details and get a gut-wrenching feeling.
Met rajaneesh on the weekend and he quoted a memorable truth:-
It is not what or how much hardwork you do at work, but it is how important the work is to the higher ups, which guarantee visibility. Example, you may be doing a trivial thing but that trivial thing might be very important.
And we saw "Don" the movie. Don is good, but waaaaaay to sophisticated and heavily inspired by Hollywood flicks. I would prefer the lambu and great looking Amitabh Bachchan in a Mafatlal suit looking damn smart, in some car chase in UP in India than SRK sitting in Paris/Malayasia.The Don of the yesteryears had a clunky charm, but this new Don is really very sophisticated. Zeenat Aman in the nurse outfit looked oh-so-gorgeous and Priyanka Chopra is okay.But Kareena Kapoor is really wasted, and she has not taken her looks seriously for this movie, and cant look like a vamp with oomph owing to weight problems.Ish Koppikar looks very un-Indian with the makeup, but some loose outfits could have been avoided. On the acting frontier, except for SRK, well chuck it. Screenplay is definitely good and a very good job of an adaptation.And Farhan Akhtar is a good auteur but he cannot understand the pulse of Bollywood. Period.
Meanwhile, I also checked out a restaurant called "Herbs and Spices" near Innovative Multiplex. It is an old British Officer's house turned into a restaurant (well it is more like a farmhouse, with some anglo-indians playing good jazz music). Very limited choice for veggies, but it was good continental food, there.

And I have to pull up my socks. This is a very important thing. (For memory).
Apart from that, today is Kannada Rajyotsava , yellarigu hardhika shubhashayagaLu.This is also a holiday at Bangalore.
And yeah, for regular blog readers, once the work thingy gets going smooth, I will be as regular as ever :-)
