Homeward bound.   

On my way back to Bombay. L.A. was good but it's always so good to head back home. I'm one of those people who gets homesick really fast, especially when I am traveling outside of India. Within a week I lose my humour, after two I start getting depressed and by the end of the third week I start weeping when I see soppy television ads.

Speaking of television I get so attracted to these ads on US TV selling the most unusual stuff on tele-shopping. Its amazing how I am such a sucker for all the most inane products which finally I'll probably never use. Thankfully better sense prevails just before I place the order. Like this time I saw this ad for an amazing absorbing material. It looks like a piece of cloth but is made of some magic material which just soaks up any liquid which may have spilled. Every time that ad came on I was riveted. Took down the number to call and everything but I realised that my trip was too short for the order to reach me. Then there was this amazing pull-ups bar which fits on to any doorway and is great for a workout without going to a gym. And then there was this ad for Timeless Romantic Tunes played on the piano by this pianist called Beegie Adair. It sounded so good, and its Kiran's birthday on the 7th so I thought it would make a great gift. But it would never have reached me on time. Well it's the thought that counts, so K should be happy.

In the meantime Obama has won. My congratulations to the people of the US, this is their victory as much as Obama's. Well now his work really begins, time for him to fulfil all his promises. Quite a soap opera though.

My flight beckons.

to earth keep it up! your proving to people to people that your
the same human being that breathes and does things that every one
does but just on a higher rank ;)

Hi Aamir...
This is sheetal...yes I luv these ads too...being in the US i
should say they are good tp with a cup of coffee:)...my mom
enjoyed them too when she was here...she used to prefer watching
these ads than any serial....have you ever tried ordering
something from them..the best thing is when they say free only
pay shipping and handling....the S&H itself covers thier
costs....kya yaar....
I am homesick tooo....miss India big time...whenever I come back
from India I want to go back again...just came back so I hope can
make the next trip soon...

Thanks As an American this was my first time that I voted n I am
proud of it. I was eligibe to vote last election but I didnt
bother N I learned my lesson Bush being re-elected.
I do have alot of respect for Dr. singh also I think he is doin
great stuff for india like N Deal etc.
But not very proud of other politicians.They all are corrupted.
This is my first visit to ur blog n I am hoping I do hear from u
Once again ur performance in Gajini was mind blowing..really
stunned by ur performance.
I watched the movie yesterday n I stil have the hangover.

HAHAA as an American, those ads are addicting! the cloth is
pretty cool, we have that. The poll, I wounldn't want to try
Yes hopefully we will see change in the US with Obama [a
Democrat] in office. Change will place slowly but will come
Also, soap opera here are not as bad as the Indian ones =).

Don't be so enthusiastic for the promises of OBAMA (he wil
certainly do the best for his country, but nothing for the third
world, it's not as easy as it seems)..... and the start donesn't
promise anything good... for us of course
