Year: 2007

Virar – Not Just a Small Town Anymore!

I am in India for Christmas and New Year, till 12th of January 2008. I reached India on 20th of this month and I am enjoying my stay here. Unlike last year, when I spent my vacation in Chennai (since my family was in Chennai), this time around, I am in Mumbai – Virar to […]

Dus Kahaniyan – Some Excellent, Some Good, Some Ordinary!

Saw Dus Kahaniyan yesterday, at Plaza Cinema in Bur Dubai. I really wanted to watch this movie – especially after looking at its posters yelling “Six visionary directors, ten spectacular movies, one cinematic journey.” The movie seemed quite big – six directors, 24 actors, four music directors, ten writers… Each story is about 15-20 minutes […]

A Stroll at Mall of the Emirates and Bee Movie!

The Christmas shopping continues… This weekend, we (me and my roommates) went to The Mall of the Emirates. The place was jampacked as usual. While walking towards Carrefour, we came across an area, where Sony and EA Sports were conducting a “Play and Win” competition. They had taken up a huge area at the mall […]

Emirates Today Scrapped!

Today, when I walked into the office, I saw a new tabloid on the coffee table. The masthead screamed “Emirates Business 24/7”. I thought to myself, “another new newspaper, huh?” Then on close inspection, the tabloid felt like it had been revamped – it looked familiar. Then when I Googled, I realised that it has […]

Billa’s Music Rocks!

Yuvan Shankar Raja has done it again – this time, he’s rendered music for the 2007 version of Billa. Billa is a film directed by Vishnuvardhan, and is a remake of the blockbuster 1980 film, Billa, which in itself is a remake of the 1978 Bollywood blockbuster Don. The 2007 film Billa meanwhile borrows its […]

Christmas Shopping at Carrefour

Went to Carrefour (pronounced Kar’Fur) in Bur Dubai over the weekend for some shopping. For those who don’t have the slightest clue of what Carrefour is, head over here. I was quite amazed that they were quite prepared for holiday shoppers – though Christmas is about three weeks away. Since it was the UAE National […]

Another Human Edited Directory

The other day, I received an e-mail from The News Box. The web site is essentially a web directory that tries to connect members of the media with organisations around the world. The site currently caters for publishing professionals (writers, editors, bloggers, columnists, reporters and journalists), graphic and web designers, photographers, PR, advertising and marketing […]

Knee Deep in Work!

I haven’t been able to update my blog over the past few days – that’s because I have been doing a lot of things at a time. I’m back from my Taipei Pres Trip and I am currently playing catch up with work. Apart from the regular PC Magazine issue, I have also been working […]

Taipei – Day 2

As you might have read from my previous posts, I am in Taipei on a four day press trip. In these four days I will be meeting a hell lot of Taiwanese companies. Today was Day 2 of my trip. My first meeting was to be with Mr. LC Liao, the President of D-link. Allia […]

The movie also has a huge list of guest appearances made by several Bollywood stars […]
