My Choices are Like My Fingerprints

The major themes in this movie are appearance and sexuality. Be it a man or a woman, sexuality that goes beyond the norms of the society has to be punished. You cannot say, ‘I am a woman, I choose to have extra-marital relationships and that is my choice.’

Women have a lot more dimensions than how they dress, whom they love and when they come home. What about their professional and educational choices? What about the number of roles they play, as a daughter, mother, wife, sister and friend?

What are the flowering trees in Bengaluru called as?

I love the Spring season in Bengaluru. The road side is adorned with trees, which are covered with pink flowers. The sidewalks are carpeted with the pink flowers. The name of this tree that beautifies Bengaluru in Spring season is Tabebuia.

Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma & World Cup 2015

Why blame Anushka Sharma for the poor performance of Virat Kohli in the India-Australia Cricket World Cup semi-final match?

Will you blame Virat Kohli if Anushka’s movies don’t do well at the Box Office? Seems silly, doesn’t it? We need a scapegoat to soothe our feelings, and massage our ego. Unfortunately that scapegoat is Anushka Sharma. Grow up people!

What’s my Bucket List?

I came to know about the book, Bucket List of Traveloholic, from a fellow blogger. The author of the book, Sarika Pandit is a market researcher by day and a freelance writer by night. Being a travel enthusiast I felt that it should be an interesting book.

In this book, Sarika writes about her travel experiences. Her dream was to get all the pages of her first passport stamped before it expires. The first country she visited was Spain. As a part of a language program, she went to Spain to learn Spanish.
