After a week long lay off due o some personal problems, I’m back to the blogging world. Although the absence wasn’t for many days, it feels much to be away from the blogging… when the readers dessert you because you have nothing new to write.
But dont worry Mayur, we are coming up with 2 back to back love stories both with and attempt to explore a new genre.
There and back in the league 🙂

In another 4 days, the dreaded terror attack on Mumbai will complete one year. A night when a handful of gunmen from across the border held the city at gunpoint will be remembered again. It was an incident, which changed the life of many people. But has any thing really changed otherwise?
As an after effect we saw both CM Vilasrao Deshmukh and Deputy CM & Home Minister R R Patil being removed from their posts. The ruling Congress party was flayed, the intelligence agencies were questioned, other political parties were criticized, Raj Thackeray was ridiculed. The people of Mumbai gathered together for a solidarity march at the gateway of India. The protests arose, the cause was raised and gradually every thing died a slow painful death. Is it an irony? I don’t think so…
The only terrorist captured alive is still living in the Arthur road jail without much discomfort. The perpetrators and conspirators are freely roaming around in Pakistan. We are (still) waiting for US to help us. Congress came back to power both at the centre and state assembly. Vilasrao is enjoying his stint as the union minister for heavy industries, R R Patil is back at the helm of home ministry, Raj is back and busy fighting for the Marathi ‘language’ rather than the people, conducting gheraon and angry protests on issues as trivial as debating on ‘Why Hindi is not a national language’. Shiv Sena, now led by a much mellowed Uddhav Thackeray is criticizing the legendary Sachin Tendulkar because he put India ahead of any one else. It looks like they are coming back to the vandalizing best. The men who could have, should have and must be protecting us from the possible attacks, the Police are busy pointing fingers at each other, one year after we were attacked.
Nothing has changed for a normal Mumbaikar like me… and nothing ever will. Terrorism, in my opinion, is a secondary problem for us. We are battling more than that every day, every month… the ever increasing population on roads, trains and buses, the sky rocketing property prices, the water and power crisis, substandard infrastructure and a slowly retreating ghost named recession. Every day journey to the office seems like a solidarity drive.
I think Mumbai is ready for another attack. Any takers?
Remember my post on Consultancy retail? I need your votes here folks.
In case if your memory is too short, let me remind you that few months ago, the self proclaimed bollywood bomb shell Rakhi Sawant had organised a Swayamwar and had also engaged herself with the NRI Elesh Parujanwala. Now you get it? Remeber that sick Rakhi? Well the news of her breaking off the engagement is old now. Although there was a mild ‘hoopla’ in the media about it (although our poor gal Rakhi tried her best), it is now history. They did appear in another reality show, ‘Pati Patni aur Woh’ together. But the news is, they are NOT getting married for sure.
Didn’t we know this already? Poor Rakhi. We already knew about her ‘future’ problems with Elesh darling. We care about her. So we had declared the outcome of this ‘relationship’ long back. The question is, ‘Where the hell is Rakhi now?’ Oh, sorry… better question is, ‘What is she up to?’
I think the whole ‘Wedding related’ reality shows have gone sore. It is really sad and sick to witness such crap being run on Indian Television. Perfect bride was another stupendous example of the depths to which Indian Television can fall. It all looked stupid, sheepish and scripted. And if you thought we had had enough, there is more to come. The wicked-son-of-a-great-man Rahul Mahajan is coming soon with his version of Swayamvar. WTF! I have heard some soon to be free inmates are going to take part in the show. Guys….
Even if I decide to ignore the television, some one else will switch it on. Duh! Some one please save us from them. Oh, by the way, ‘where the hell is Rakhi?’
… is always around the corner.
Where are you?
