Page 3 and dinner at 3

Last night my friends and I decided to catch the movie 'Page 3', the much talked about film about life of the glitterati of Mumbai. Pretty well made film, I dare say. More than the plot, what appealed to me was the interweaving of characters and the realistic depiction of celebrity life... all through a Page 3 journalist's perspective. Yes, naturally I could relate this to N, an ex-Page 3 journalist. Overall, good movie. Watch it.

What followed after the movie is the more interesting part. Manish insisted on driving through the town and before I knew it, we landed up in Juhu. I just happened to suggest dropping in at JW Marriott, I had to check it out before I left the city. No sooner did we land there than we realised - we were in the midst of uncountable Page 3 folks! It was close to 2 o'clock in the night but this place was totally happening, abuzz with folks from tinsel town. Sitting right next to us was Gaurang Doshi.

We spotted some television artists, I didn't know any. There was a gorgeous looking Mahek Chehel and a blonde-avatar Shefali Zariwala. Suddenly while I was busy munching into my pasta, Kapil almost jumped up asking me to check out the person standing next to me - Madhur Bhandarkar, Director of the movie Page 3! The world does indeed come full circle!  Posted by Hello

A high-five to 2005!

This is the year I've been waiting for. The one which I have pre-christened as my personal best year. A lot of innocent people in South East Asia who may have nursed similar dreams were mercilessly tucked away to bed, put forever to sleep by a ghastly blanket of the sea on Dec 26, 2004. So this year instead of going out and partying wild with friends, I decided to form a team of volunteers to visit affected areas in India and do what we could do best. We came back with lingering memories, a renewed zest for life, a passion to do something bigger than the short-term assistance we could offer there and spiritually unified. What better way to start off the new year?! While I continue to work on that, I'm realigning myself as an individual with an improved psycho-spirituo-somatic self to truly make this the best year for myself and touch as many lives and enrich each other. 2005 to me is about amelioration, redux, new frontiers. Cheers!
