I'm only posting because I have to see for myself if this actually gets posted because I still cannot believe that my cheap ass college actually sprang for a WiFi connection.

Edited to add: Whoa, the connection lasted long enough for this to post. I'm very impressed.

The good ol' 90's

The other day, during the usual 'snooping-around-on-facebook' phase of my internet time, I happened to find a group, that listed all the things you would remember if you were a kid who grew up in the 90's. Now I actually remember reading an article awhile ago on things that you would remember if you were an INDIAN kid who grew up in the 90's. So I thought I'd make my own list, of course a couple of things may overlap with the other lists that are all over the internet, but come on, that's only because we all remember the same things. After all, we were the cool kids from the 90's, weren't we?

So, here's my version!


  • You know who Mogli from the Jungle Book is, because you watched the show on Doordarshan and you remember singing along to the title track, even though you had no idea what it meant. (This is for the South Indians out there)
  • Wrote an actual letter, or a letter in your head that never materialized to MTV's Most Wanted.
  • You religiously turned on the TV on Sundays at 12 to catch Derek O'Brien on the Bournvita Quiz show. Yes, religiously. Its quite shocking that I of all people loved this show.
  • 'Made in India' by Alisha Chinai was one of your favorite songs and you hoped that one day, a bare bodied Milind Soman would jump out of a box and sweep you off of your feet.
  • Your mom sent you to bed by 8, so that she could watch "Bold and the Beautiful' without you irritating her with questions like "What does 'romantic' mean?"
  • You thought that having a birthday party at the newly opened Pizza Corner made you the coolest gal around.
  • You could sing along to the Vicco Turmeric ad.
  • You got ready for school in the morning while watching 'GI Joe' and 'The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' on Star Plus.
  • You got the board game "Business" as a gift on at least one of your birthdays.
  • Your wardrobe was almost completely made up of clothes from Weekender Kids.
  • Train rides meant hurriedly buying a Tinkle or a Champak just before you jumped in.
  • You thought Nick Carter from 'The Backstreet Boys' was the 'cutest' guy around! (As 10 year olds, 'hottest' wasn't a word that was in our vocabulary as yet)
  • You managed to entirely cover one wall of your room with posters of Leo DiCaprio.
  • Speaking of which, your mom made you shut your eyes during the infamous 'car' scene in the 'Titanic'.
  • You loved the lollipop 'Mr. Pops' but hated Parle's Lacto King. (Seriously, Lacto King sucked!)
  • You cried every time you watched the movie 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'.
  • You wished you had your very own robot sister like Vickie from 'Small Wonder'.
  • You traded your 'tazos' for neon coloured 'Add Gel' pens!
  • You would have given your left eye for a game like 'Jumanji'.
  • Dancing to the Macarena was a given at any party!
  • You remember that 'Lays' were originally called 'Ruffles'.
  • You were hooked onto Cartoon Network and had to be surgically removed from in front of the TV.
  • You grew up a be a pretty awesome dude or chick.
Ok, I know the words 'Dude' and 'Chick' don't fall into the 90's category, but that's cause we grew into the new millennium by then. Because, seriously, you can't deny the fact that we actually are an awesome generation!

PS: If you guys have more points to add, go on ahead, I'm sure that there quite a few that I missed out.

As if I didn't own enough blogs in the blogosphere, I had to go and get myself another one!

This is something that I have been wanting to do for a long time, but other important priorities (READ: lazing around) got in the way. So, without further ado, I give you...

Why? Because I'm lazy and because those are pixels. If you find yourself blinking right about now, go ahead and check it out. Or you could subscribe to the RSS feed and be forever updated on the results of the endless fruitless photo sessions I have with the most insignificant little things in sight.

I can promise that the new photo blog will be updated on a more regular basis than this one is.
Because, my life? Not that happening. But, my camera pointed at various objects lying around the house? Dude, way more interested than the sordid details of my life.

Day 1 at College

  • Went late for my first class.
  • Dozed off in class.
  • Got caught for dozing off in class.

  • Whined about the rest of the year.
  • Ate crap food from the canteen.
  • Got sick.
  • Did absolutely nothing productive when I got back home.

Yup, I'd say I kept the traditions alive.
