My Word: Travelogue: Visiting Cambridge

Cambridge isn't too far from Brentwood and on one late summer morning, we set off quite early and found ourselves on the motorway without too many speed demons spoiling our pleasure. Thanks to the light traffic, we reached our destination well before 10.00 AM and after parking our car in the monstrously expensive parking lot, we set about exploring the town.

About A Boy: P's action-packed weekend

P had a real busy Saturday - he first had his swimming lessons in the morning, whichh he tried to duck out of by lying in bed with the duvet over his head. We just dragged him to the pool, nonetheless. [Read on...]

Entertainment: I review Pachai Kili, Muthu Charam

That name and Karthik's actions are embedded in my mind and are totally unforgettable. Arguably, one of Mani Ratnam's best efforts, Mouna Ragam is a classic example of Mani's work, a simple tale, well told. [Read on]

What's Cooking: Berry Smoothie
Summer's almost upon us and the fruit & veg shops are full of the most luscious looking berries. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and black - the plump, juicy, glistening fruits tempt you with their sweetness. What a better way to indulge in some healthy berries than a berry smoothie, I ask you?!

About Me

The blogging bug bit me a couple of years back, when I was looking for some place to vent. I started this blog then and used it rather like an online journal. Then last year, I took it more as a place to write about anything I felt like. I always feel like the blogosphere is sort of like a virtual Speaker's Corner - one can use it to rant about whatever moves one.

I slowly expanded it to include my interests so now I have three seperate blogs, housing different things.

I am a major movie / music buff and love watching films on the big screen. The blog Music, Movies and Masti is set up so I can post the reviews of the movies I see, albums I listen to, my favourite singers, composers, theatre shows etc.

I also have a seperate blog called Pratikisms wherein one can find all the stuff related to my little boy. This is my online baby book!

My most recent blog is for my major interests - cooking. I became interested in cooking when I was around 12 years old and have been collecting recipes ever since. I aim to store my favourite recipes from the world - family ones as well as ones I have collected.

Big thanks to Padmalatha for helping me out with setting up this new design and layout and Amrita for checking it out and okaying it!

Drop me a line about general, non-post related stuff here. And bookmark me!
