rules #1314 (1)


I SUPPORT PREITY ZINTA, unconditionally.

Indian Premier League COO Sundar Raman has corroborated Bollywood actress Preity Zinta’s claim that she had informed him about her spat with former boyfriend and industrialist Ness Wadia at the Wankhede Stadium.

The 39-year-old actress had filed a police complaint alleging she was abused and mistreated in public view by Wadia (44) at Wankhede stadium on May 30, 2014 when an IPL match was played between Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings.


Wadia has termed the accusations as “false and baseless”.

Being an ex-boyfriend does not give someone the right to humiliate a woman in public, even if he is rich and powerful.

But I am not sure the media should continue to use the word molested in the case. I don’t think manhandling, abusing and threatening or even humiliating in public translates to ‘molesting’! Nevertheless, that doesn’t make the guy any less a villain.

Indian men have a foolish belief, I do not know about other men, SORRY, that they own their women, daughter, sister, mother, wife, girlfriend, or even former girlfriends for that matter. That’s a PITY. It’s high time they understood that all they ever would truly own is their silly ego.

In her written complaint to the police, Zinta had alleged that Wadia publicly humiliated her on several occasions, including once at an IPL auction where Raman was present.

Based on Zinta’s written complaint, police registered an FIR against Wadia under several sections of IPC relating to outraging the modesty of a woman and criminal intimidation.

Both charges, I believe are true.

You rock girl! Proud of you…


It’s hills again…

Another year, another hills, same reason — rejuvenate.

From what? Routine.


We are going to Sikkim in India this time, no my past obsession Shimla.

Oh no, I am not setting the characters of my new book there. This trip is just to be in the midst of nature of a different sort. I know for someone living, and working overlooking the coast, this will be an extreme shift. But I love the crisp air and the monsoon, and they both combine, this is one journey I must travel.

I am looking forward to seeing some of the most beautiful spots in the world and people. I have my bookings done, my itinerary prepared and my friends enrolled. Life is beautiful, indeed. :) Image

Things to do, people to see, places to go!

AMSTERDAM – I was watching the film The Fault in our Stars and the main characters visit Amsterdam. The scenery really blew me away – such a beautiful place, where Anne Frank lived in hiding. This is definitely a place I need to go, even if it’s just to see the Anne Frank Museum. What a story it is, a very sad story.

TORONTO, CANADA – Although Toronto Canada is such a lovely, beautiful city full of history, it’s not the only reason I would love to go. I’d love to meet my very dear friend and pen-pal.


amazing street art

It always feels good when you stay at a nice hotel, but when you travel, it’s probably not the best place to get in touch with the locals. The people of where you are going are not going to hang around hotels. Toronto has some really great street art, by the way.

A little bird and the sea

A little bird and the sea

It was, for us, a routine walk on the coast – except that I lagged behind to take a few pictures as SS walked briskly away.
It was then that I saw a sparrow that frolicked on a concrete block rapidly being ‘consumed’ by the rising tide. It was meant to be just a few shots, but then the little bird dived into the water, perhaps do a kingfisher and was engulfed by a wave.
I thought it would soon fly off but that wasn’t the case. And soon I realised it was actually drowning! My worst fears were confirmed as the tiny bird did not fly away after being washed ashore.
It was then that I realised it was in some situation. I picked it up and removing the weeds entangled in its weak feet, kept it safely away from the water. The sparrow was breathless, almost dead, soaked…

Seeking the Sun

DSC_7988 DSC_8889 DSC_8930 DSC_8637 We were at the exclusive island resort of Al Dar over the last couple of days and, besides the luxury of the pristine beach and the flip-flop of the gentle waves, were breath-taking sights of the sunrise and the sunset!
Expectedly, I spent much time trying to capture those perfect shots of the two events. I surprised myself by finding photographing the sun rising was much more a spectacle than the sunset and just waiting for the big orange ball to make an appearance is an exhilarating experience!
And while I was quite satisfied with a single shot of the sunset (bottom), there were several of the rising – and some of them are featured here (left)!
Nature does an outstanding job to say the least and it makes us feel rather tiny in comparison with its ‘awesomeness’.
We have already decided to come back at the end of Bahrain’s…

Cyclists like these car cleaners are commonplace all over Bahrain – inviting trouble on the roads

I came across a gut-wrenching scene as we drove out to run some errands this afternoon. A cyclist had just been knocked over by a car and lay motionless on the side of the busy road while another man, possibly his companion on another bicycle, wailed hysterically.
Also at the scene was a police officer and a woman in white uniform, who appeared to be a nurse, as were some onlookers who had stopped.
My first reaction was to call 999 which I did but they said they were already aware of the incident. Help was on its way so we left the scene.
What else could we do? Just being part of the already-swelling crowd would only hinder any rescue efforts.
As we drove off with a lump in our throats, we wondered…
