Hum Aapke Hai Kaun

September 1st, 2015

Is there anybody who hasn’t been feeling sick about the ongoing Sheena Murder mystery? I have become almost physically ill with the news, yet turn on the TV the minute I can.

Woke up in a sweat last night twice. 1st because I dreamed that Indrani was standing on my veranda, letting poison gas through my aircondioner  vents.

Opeeenn the door!! Hee hee haw haw haw haw haw!!! ”

Gotta stop following this Indrani Peter #SheenaMurderMystery (even started thinking about it in hash tags!  Yesterday when a friend asked me to send her my postal address I typed #ArnabspeaksToPeter into the phone .  Luckily I noticed it before I hit send- uff.

Controlled anarchy. Who is funding the Hardik Patels of the world…?

August 27th, 2015

For those wondering on the Patel agitation and the sudden appearance of Hardik Patel on the scene, can I point you all once again to this post I had shared a few times? The latest being in Jan this year, post the Sri Lankan election.

“The US Govt, having a much larger courtyard than India has evolved nation manipulation into an art.
