ARR and Mani

The first song is from Guru.

This second one is from a A.R. Rehman concert.

1,000 movies to see before you die

Guardian picks the 1,000 movies you have to see before you die. Bookmark the link. Might make for a lifetime of happy viewing. (They are just starting out, so keep going back.)

Sivaji on Metblogs

I don't think I put it down in this blog, but two months ago I became co-captain of the Chennai Metblogs team. There's a joke that goes like this: those who can't do teach, and those who can't teach, teach gym. Well, I guess those who can't blog to save their lives become co-captains and act funny with their team.

An interesting side effect to this was that I stopped writing. Attempts made by my colleagues to resuscitate my depleting blogging skills weren't quite successful. For long, my keyboard was never stroked.

But in every writer's life comes a muse(ok, I am flattering myself). Mine was Sivaji. Please click and read.

New Yorker

I am stunned at the revamp New Yorker has undergone. I don't know when they did it. But this is fantastic. You got to go there. Now. There's a Summer Fiction special issue waiting for you too!
