While everyone is busy posting Facebook updates with a photograph of them (being little or old) with their beloved mother, we thought of going overboard with the melodrama and give it a dash of Bollywood vibes. Now for those who’ve been following the Hindi Cinema saga for a really long time, this will come in as no surprise that the ‘Ma’ characters being played on the big screen are very much similar to our Desi Mother style! Their have been moments (while watching a Hindi flick) that we’ve felt a movie mother is an exact copy of our own dear mother. With shocking freaks of “Oh my god! My mom does just like that.” to the absolute nodding in agreement with “This is so true! She always scolds me like that.”; brown mothers are a true inspiration to the on-screen role playing mommas (Rosesh Sarabhai will agree). Enough of the blabbering already, we present to you a list of iconic Bollywood mothers who (we are pretty sure) are a carbon copy of how your mother in real life is like. Scroll through and tell us which Bollywood Mother is closest to your own MATAJI!? Durga Singh The mom who stays awake waiting for you to come back,  even when you are busy partying till 4 AM in the wee hours. Keep calm because, Mere Karan Arjun Ayenge! Nirmala Gupta Hitler of a Mother (Movie Khoobsurat) : The mom who runs a mini army cant in the house itself. She loves Apple Kheer, believes in the power of discipline and doesn’t let you finish that last slice of Pizza because, KAYEDA! Lajwanti The savoir mom, who covers up and cleans the mess you create. She doesn’t hesitate from fighting Papa bear if need be and always considers her laal as ‘Laakhon Mai Ek’. Nandini Raichand The melodramatic …

Valentines Day Treats To Himself

February 11, 2016

Articles getting churned out this week gotta be all about love. And by love I mean the mushy mushy couple love, because it is the time of the Valentine! But my agenda is slightly different from the general norm. I am celebrating, and giving reasons to celebrate, this week of love with not a partner; but yourself! Having already covered ‘Valentines Day Treats To Herself‘ in my previous feature, this one is dedicated to all the handsome dudes who have befriended solitude as their current hotness. Feel loved, lover boy! 1. Hit The Road Prolly something that every guy dreams of doing 24/7, is taking their automobile out for a drive. Either hit the highway to your nearest destination, or simply map out the country side for some sightseeing. Take it up with your group of friends, or go solo with your music list in check. Breathe in some fresh air and remember, YOU LIVE ONLY ONCE! 2. Attend A City Gig And do some ‘air head bangin’ moves while you’re at it. For the love of music and some alcohol on the side, google up the hot n’ happenin gigs this week in your city and book yourself an exclusive reservation. While committed men will be sipping soup over a romantic candlelit dinner, you’ll be letting yourself lose over some soul music and a bowl of cheese dripping nachos. 3. Get a Tattoo! Not the ones wherein your express the depressing solitude, or speaks about the memoirs of your ex’s history; but the ones that define your personality. Get inspired from Adam Levine or go David Beckham all the way, but get an ink to celebrate life! Note: You can try one of those temporary designs in case a tattoo still seems doubtful to you. This way you will realise if you …

Their are two types of people. The type who ‘Eats to Live’ & the type who ‘Lives to Eat’.  I believe that latter is what defines my life perfectly. Food is one grand affair that I can’t get enough of. So every time a travel is on my cards, I make sure that I come back with some memorable taste buds that I get to try in the local suburbs. If you are in Goa and would like to experience the authentic Goan delicacies, then make your way to the lush land of Alila Diwa Goa.
