Mumbai Says Enough is ENOUGH!

The 4-day ordeal in Mumbai has finally come to an end and the city is safe. But at what price? 149 dead and about 300 wounded. This has gone too far. We have got to say that enough is enough. I blame the Indian government for not taking a strict stand against terrorism. I blame […]

Mumbai Under Attack

Fuckin’ terrorists are back again – this time they have again targeted the financial capital and the most diverse and cosmopolitan city in India – Mumbai.

Today, I received a mail from […]

Death Race is a Killer Ride

Last me and my friend Elesh went to Deira City Centre at Mall of the Emirates to watch Death Race. I was back in 2006 that I saw Crank and I loved Jason Statham in the movie. The movie was brilliant. To be honest, I had never heard of Jason Statham prior to watching Crank. […]
