Homeward bound.   
Nov,06,2008
 

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.

Cheers.

WAT a tragedy in MUMBAI.... I guess people are jealous of the
lively and happy lifestyle of MUMBAI and so want to spoil it by
their attempts.. Hope everything becomes fine... I request
everybody to just pray for the safety of all.... May the
government kill this fuss sooon.....

Sanch: Every birth is an incredible act of hope, and the despair
of the moment mustn't overpower your creation of that new life ..
in my humble opinion.

I remember after 9/11, even though I live half the country away,
everyone was in shock of course. My daughter was eight, and her
dad and I went to a burger place a few days after. Everybody in
the place kept kind of anchoring on her, because the child is the
epitome of innocence and possibility.

I agree Sweetmango: nothing to do with Islam itself. Hopefully
Islamic leaders the world over will take further steps to
separate their religion from this.

I hope the situation in Mumbai is under control, the news are
not so clear about that. The last 24 hours have tested the city.


Here in NY we still have fresh memories of the aftermath of the
terror attacks that shook us to the bone. A friend of mine who
was injured during 9/11 just arrived in mumbai two days ago just
to see a repeat of it all.

This has nothing to do with Islam. This is just a nonsensical,
power hungry act of terror. Islam shouldn't be dirtied by those
fanatics who have no respect for life.

Dear Aamir and everyone,

Certainly the hearts and minds of people all over the world are
with you. I am sure that, as Barack Obama said, your democracy is
resilient and will outlast the hateful ideology of the
terrorists.

I hope that India opens up to all the rest of us helping to heal
and rebuild when the immediate actions are completed, in whatever
way possible.

Jai Hind!

Hi! its such a pity, there is a thin line between sanity and
insanity. unfortunately we are hanging in between what we call
comedy of errors. Iam having a baby soon and I dont know whether
I should or not. What do I bring a new life for..... some more
comedies turning into tragedies. God bless evryones soul who
died.

Mumbai meri jaan :( My heart goes out to those affected.

shakti_47, the one film I can think of where Aamir did a
positive/negative role was 1947 Earth.
