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.

Hey Aamir,

The next time you are in Austin, TX and find your self homesick,
you should come over to my place for dinner. We'll play some
chess where you can beat me and then some racing video games
where I can beat you:)

I totally understand homesickness and how artists such as you
must be having a hard time with all the travelling that y'all do.
I have heard AR Rahman mention it in the past also when he was
working on the Lord of the Rings!

Either way, consider this an open invitation whenever you are in
Austin. You are amongst friends!

It was relieving to know you were ok as NDTV quoted your feelings
on the attacks.

Serenity, peace and love to you and your beautiful city.

SKOTSE SWEETMANGO NEETA and other fellow bloggers outside of

The international channels are taking some time to keep up with
the latest news in Mumbai despite their concern and efforts(and
also tend to cover Taj and Oberoi attacks more than the others I

There is a link to NDTV on the web where you can watch the news
in English from India:


I am still feeling numbed by the extent of the violence shown by
a few individuals who have succeeded in messing up so many
people's lives.

Wishes of peace to all.

Enough is enough...for how many more years r we going to
suffer???y alwayz us? why cant we just stop all this? and why
shud v blame the politicians, police, ats? aint v equally
responsible. I agree v cant go there n fight bt y cant we be a
bit more responsible??? V have had enough. now no more. plzzzzz
wake up....aftr 9/11 has thr been a single attack on US? no. then
y cant we bring about the same results??? N to the neighbouring
countries, thank u bt v dont need ur sympathy. V can manage

Dear Aamir and friends...
