Why is it so tough to plan an India trip?

Filed under: Rant — Tags: , — yaadayaada @ 4:43 pm

Planning for an India trip this month. Why am I obssessed about getting presents for people especially kids? Why do kids have varied interests and when did they all grow up to have their own likes and dislikes? Why should my dad and mil have 9-10 siblings each? Believe me it is tough shopping with a recovering ankle and why am I obsessed about shopping in person? Why do I have to go to Bangalore and work for 2 weeks? And why did the stupid me suggest that in the first place (knowing fully well that I can’t expense anything including my flight tickets and stay in Bangalore)? Why do I have so many things to do and so little time or why am I not utilizing my time well?  Why? Why? Why?

Ayan (அயன்)

Saw Ayan this weekend. Caught it in a low quality DVD. Wish had seen the fight sequences in big screen, since that was the only nice thing about this movie. Thamanna, She can’t act, she is not pretty. Lesser said about her the better! Surya looks good. But he should either use his brain or listen to some one who has brain and pick good movies with good storyline.

The first fight sequence reminds us of Casino Royale and one of the Bourne movies. The first half is loosely based on Blood Diamond. The second half is very much based on Maria full of grace. The ending is like Catch me if you can. Can anyone do any more cut/paste?

Edited to Add: Oh! I completely forgot about the villain. Man, some villains are scary and some villains are smart and some are just handsome. This one beats all. He is dumb. Felt like taking him aside, give a tight slap on his face and give him a good hair cut!
