Adam Gilchrist

I loved the way he scored 80 something in 30 something balls against the Delhi Daredevils in the IPL 2 semi-final. I was real upset when he got out for nothing in the final match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. But who cares, Deccan Chargers won!! Yeah!!! And Gilly was smiling most of the time, though his team's chances were slim. I was thrilled to hear that in the news this morning[could not stay awake till the match got over].

Delhi 6

I never really read any reviews about Delhi 6, but I did hear that the movie got mixed reviews. My opinion - very nicely put together. I loved the way the true India has been portrayed. I did not get bored at anytime through the movie. It was total entertainment :) The kala bandar stuff was dragged a bit though.

Fantastic climate in Bangalore this morning

I enjoyed coming to work this morning. Except for a little "black" pollution near Marathahalli bridge, the air smelt so fresh. The air wasn't so chilly or anything. Was great. Just wish I could have come on my bike to work today.

First morning after marriage

I was terribly sick on my wedding day - cold, fever and bad throat. For the bad throat I always rely on Strepsils lozenges. I went to sleep on the day of my marriage with one of them in my mouth. Guess what? When I woke up, my upper lip was all swollen up. I looked awful. Prashanth was a bit irritated ;) Guess who had bitten me? An ant - which wandered to my lip cause of the sweetness of the lozenge. Was real funny and embarassing ;)

Getting Married...

People told me that my wedding was gonna be real simple and quick. I was real cool about the whole thing hearing all of that. I did not care much for the type of saree that I chose - some materials are easily wearable. I was in complete shock when I got to the temple that morning. I was already sick and my make-up was all messed up. Mom and I had done a rehearsal earlier but at that moment, she got tense and started shivering. Me, being a real pro :-p, took over and did a fantabulous job[people who know me will know better]. There was a huge crowd. Many brides and bridegrooms with their fan following ;) I was still cool cause I had heard of a token system. Well, there we had to buy the token but that did not apply for that time window since there were too many couples to be married off. How stupid!!! Should the token system not apply especially at this time? Well, I was pulled and pushed near the mandap... sweating profusely in the heat.. The worst was when a fat man wanted to get out of the enclosure. I ended up climbing the stairs to the mandap with my bindi fallen off and my blouse falling off of my shoulder cause some imbicile caught on to my saree palav and would not let go until my father-in-law pushed and freed it for me. Once in the mandap, it was a cool ride... real smooth and quick. I really liked the fact that Prashanth and I could talk to each other and just be ourselves. There were qualms or glaring eyes or some dumb rules to be followed..... Once married, Prashanth held my shoulder and kept rushing me to eat lunch. I could not talk to everyone who had come for the wedding. No time to even click a snap with everyone who came. Purna has been pestering me for a snap of his!!! I am real sorry guys. I never knew things would be so rushed. But, I am so so glad that I am finally married to "MY PRASHANTH BHASKARAN".... :)

Well, but things are a bit different after marriage. It is not just Pras and me, it is Pras and his family and me and my family. But, it has been a very nice experience and I am looking forward to a long and happily married life. I do know that there will be the occasional sadness but why think about that now?
