AMUsING

ANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL is what the month has been so far.

suggested we ought to have IBM franchised yoga classes... just because i can feel my back becoming a brick.. like tough old mutton meat..

still trying to get to bloody lal bagh to get some plants to grow in time for monsoon... hoping for a flower on my birthday

been thnking abt my birthday.. which somehow always depresses me.. princess me

been feeling hot under the collar, sleepy under the eyes, heavy at the heart and malaise in just being

How would Mr Ansari know what is 'Indian', and what is not? Did he design Indianess? He's chosen to stick to his guns, insisting that women in India today do need to be protected, actively citing the Pratibha murder as fuel for his fire.

If what he wants is to target the women of the BTO, BPO, IT sectors then, how come the Bill exempts these …
