..And the world goes baa baa !

Himesh Reshammiya, medias favourite play child has been the butt of many a jibe recently when he donned a burkha as a disguise to visit the dargah of Ajmer Sharif .

The channels, perennially on the look out for fodder to feed their gargantuan appetite for news, made quite a gung ho of it, mocked, sneered, condemned, questioned a seemingly innocuous incident. (more…)

Pakistan Lifts Ban On Indian Films….Conditionally!

Filed under: India n Me,opinions,Random,This Gets To Me — Kaveeta Oberoi Kaul @ 1:39 pm

Kaveeta Kaul

The Federal Censor Board of Pakistan has decided to finally lift its ban on Indian films ..albeit conditionally. Are we supposed to trill in glee?

Any Indian film with a Pakistani co-producer or having a Pakistani cast and shot outside India can be released in Pakistan.

Deserved of a polemic debate imho despite the congruence of our cultural ethos which invites bondedness and elicits no surprise at the phenomenon of similarity in preferences . (more…)

Brace yourself for some wild gloating about moi in Toi.. in the second half of this post!!

Meanwhile, the legendary Mumbai monsoon has arrived! For many it proves to be a source of great nuisance, erratic trains, pot holed roads, dampness galore, for me nevertheless a welcome relief, a time to romanticise. It takes a lot to incite me these days. My maids quite aghast at the fact that a treasured broken vase, is met uncharacteristically with just a disapproving look, a mild reprimand and an advice at caution. She is as yet, I presume, wondering whether it has to do with her prayers or the almost perfect ‘pakoras’. Drat.. will she ever guess it has to do with almost perfect weather? Come October and my elephantine memory is gonna get her into a chase! (more…)

Congrats!!!! WE have done it.. The Taj Mahal has made it as one of the Seven Great Wonders! The listing is alphabetical and does not reflect number of votes..

According to media reports Taj has received the highest number of votes!! Wow …Great

Shall keep you updated on exact number of votes.

Meanwhile feast on beautiful pics of the New Seven Wonders and the function

Now that Indian citizenry has supported the cause and accorded Taj the glory it deserves, the Indian Government is obligated to ensure that Agra and the heritage structure abides by norms of infrastructural procedures essential to the tourism industry. Presently the conditions surrounding the Taj are appalling to say the least.

Results to be declared today..7th July.

You can watch Live Streaming of the Award Function here.


Show solidarity for the monument of love The Taj Mahal.

Voting is on for the selection of the New Seven Wonders. Our Taj surely does deserve to be in the list.

Presently its not doing as well as one might have hoped, considering we are the largest democracy in the world and perhaps the highest percentage of online subscribers!. It has not even reached the 7th place as yet !! From the looks of it, metaphorically speaking, to be among the first few was the expectation!! Put in your votes asap guys. Its a matter of national pride and also a celebration of Love and the worlds greatest lover Shah Jehan.

Its amazing to be told by overjoyed anchors on the number of votes received via paid SMS’es for say an Indian Idol or Sa Re Ga Ma ..and few forthcoming via a free vote to prove pride for a heritage structure, the pride of India, the next inclusion in Wonders of the world?! C’mon guys I’m sure we can do better. One can do little about votes cast for the goons in U.P…but why not spend a minute for a worthy cause?

Sigh.. Ladies, think about it.. we aint gonna have another Taj dedicated to us..not even the tea bag variety.. so might as well revel in the joy of Mumtaz Mahal..although she had to die to fathom his love.. or am I being cynical! (more…)
