A few months ago just after the Paris attacks in November 2015, my beautician Shabana who comes to my home in a burqa and whose care I have been under for more than a decade, had told me with fear in her eyes that the head of her Majlis had informed those in her community that the heinous Paris attacks had been carried out by Christians and Hindus disguised as Muslims under their burqas. ‘It’s a worldwide conspiracy against Islam’ she had gasped
His wife in the meantime- (With an entourage of suitably servile looking followers and videograhers ) barges onto my front door, threatening me with the most ridiculous excuses for her uncivil behaviour, telling me its none of my business what happens on her floor as I am not her immediate neighbour & so better back off warna….!!! Anurag kashyap & RGV would hire her pronto- i mean its that level of a serious snap of her fingers. As third rate and unimaginable as you can get

yesterday i tried to book a ticket from Lisbon to Hamburg and was unfortunate enough to be scammed by a fraud website edreams.in – who charged me a random sum ( totally different from the actual cost of ticket) and then didnt give me an eticket or any confirmation for the same.
The other evening at an *i’m not drinking – i”ll have a coke please* night out, a gentleman with a salt and pepper beard and hair kept smiling sweetly at me.
“I know you” he said
“Cool” i said, smiling back equally sweetly.

Most often our biggest emotional challenge is to accept how horrible some of the people in our closest relationships are. And to try and love them anyway… Suchitra Krishnamoorthi
Yesterday there were two events that consumed the nation and the twitterati. One was Aamir Khan saying on TV in the presence of Arun Jaitley, that his (Aamir’s) wife Kiran is scared for their kids and talks about leaving the country in India’s current environment of intolerance.
The other was about Pahlaj Nihalani cutting down the kissing scene in Spectre. Both boo boo’s? Tho main kya karoon huh?
