I don’t think even people who have bought High-end DSLRs will create so much publicity for their camera, but I have been blowing my own trumpet in Facebook, and now in my blog! 😛 Here’s my new Advanced Point & Shoot Camera:The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS –
That was my dilemma during my recent Hyderabad trip – To walk or take a bus? Actually, the house I was staying in was not far enough to take a bus, and was not close enough to walk, from the Secunderabad Railway station. I ate a heavy lunch at Chutneys and came to the Secunderabad junction. I wanted to walk back home.
Sadhana Forest is a noble initiative near the Integrated Township – Auroville & Pondicherry, South India where thousands of volunteers from around the world are trying to (re)build a tropical dry evergreen forest by planting trees native to the region, and by recharging the water table of the region, on a land that was almost barren a few years ago. The great news is: You can also help them by volunteering!Continue reading Volunteer & Help Grow a Forest: Sadhana Forest, India!→
My Man Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse is the first second full-length humorous book I read recently. Just before reading this, I tried to read ‘Three Men in a Boat’. Although that book was funny (until where ever I dropped it), it tested my patience without a story, or a story that moved tooooooo slow. So I dropped it mid-way.
But this book, at least in comparison, is a GEM. It’s more like a collection of short stories
I love the way Director Gowtham Menon brings the best out of Music Director Harris Jeyaraj in his movies. This song, Unakkena venum sollu from Yennai Arindhaal is another classy song sung by Benny Dayal and Mahathi. This slow and melodious song will easily capture your hearts. The lovely picturization is another great plus! Don’t miss
Many people might have missed this, but Akshara Hassan is the real star of this movie – SHAMITHAB. What a performance – you should see the way she handles both the domineering male leads ~ Amithab & Dhanush! This movie, even if it’s not great or entertaining, it is differently innovative – see it if you like off-beat movies
We have one ZenFone in our house already, the ZenFone 5, and people here are crazy about it! What could be a better upgrade to the ZenFone 5, than the AsusNew ZenFone 2 about to be launched all over India? You should consider buying phones from Asus over all those expensive mobiles available in the market because they offer great functionality and experience at the right price.
So I went to a photo-walk to Besant Nagar/Elliots beach, organized by Humans of Madras. Since we were not allowed to visit the broken bridge (which was our original destination) by the cops due to time restrictions, I hereby present to you some photos I took of boats belonging to a small fisherman colony, nearby.
I guess you remember by maiden crime fiction novella – The Archers Revenge. I have made it free for now on the Google Play Books Store for Android. If you are into reading novels on your tablet or phone or computer, you might want to download it from Google Play Store while it is still free – you can always read it later when you get time. The Google Play Books Android app supports TTS (Text to Speech). So you can even listen to the book from your android mobile. Try it, if you haven’t – I use it all the time
‘Kaara Aata Kaara’ is the song from the latest (yet to be released) Mani Rathnam’s movie: O Kadhal Kanmani. The music for this movie has been composed by A. R. Rehman. I fell in love with the song once I saw the trailer (who will not?). The song doesn’t live up to the expectations set in the trailer as it is too slow at times and doesn’t maintain the rhythm in the first half, but it catches up in the second half and leaves us happy. I am sure I’ll start liking even the first half more if I listen to it more (no time!!). Continue reading #Song of the Week: Kaara Aata Kaara (O Kadhal Kanmani)→
