who is a writer who doesn't write? a non-writer!

jewellery loot

its amazing the pleasure jewellery can bring to a lady. especially when its eight Sia sets - big and happy, shiny and colourful all for less than Rs.3000/= :)

bought thanks to spending a day in bed watching homeshop18. very well done scripts. very good presenters. good deals. a lot better than the news and soaps.

Wonderful, wonderful

Harishchadrachi Factory is a wonderful movie that celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit of Dadasaheb Phalke, who made India's first movie in 1911. A cheerful, upbeat, celebratory movie. Must watch.

the best tea - truly none such

here's a highly recommended but hard to find tea - grown on the hills of the nilgiri mountains. its a light, delicate, aromatic tea - made for brewing. available at the nilgiri supermarket in bangalore, but very hard to find here in mumbai.
