My new mobile phone

Actually, it's already a month since I bought the Sony Ericsson W550i handset. But I hadn't told you guys about it so for all practical purposes, it's still my new mobile phone. I didn't quite like its bright orange hue much and immediately changed it to the more decent blue you can see below. The phone's been called a lot of things - kiddo phone, candy floss... but its Walkman and other features easily stand out from others in the market. Given its popularity in India, it's easily the best phone in the Rs 10K category. I've been a Nokia fan till now but the W550i really impressed me with its complete entertainment package. Now my hour-long bus journeys are pure bliss. Wotsay?

Snippets from Ahmedabad

Yup, we took a break and travelled down to Ahmedabad to visit my mom's side of the family. My last visit was around six years ago. The city is dirty, dirtier than Delhi and yet - isn't there always something magical about the place where you were born? My mom had been born here too. But we never spent any time here. I was spirited away to Pune when I was a year old and then to the national capital at the age of five. Which basically means I hardly remember anything from the city of my birth. Even the nursing home at Gomtipur where I was welcomed into this world no longer exists (am told it was burnt down during communal riots). Well, here are some images from my five-day stay in Ahmedabad.

Something that my young cousin Philo created. Isn't she wonderful?

She made these things too. Now, isn't she talented?

Philo's favourite teddy

A visit to the cemetery to visit my grandparents and uncle. I just wish I knew them better.

Philo (also known as Dolly) engages in a kung-fu contest with my brother Jose

And lastly, the cat which waltzed in through the gate as I was fiddling with my camera phone

The Lola Kutty concert

Well, this is why I say Lola Kutty rocks.

Barking Cat

The BIG question is - is the cat imitating a dog or is it a dog in cat's clothing?

Couch Potato

I have been a couch potato this week and am not proud of it. Have been more loyal than any other fan of HBO/Star Movies/Zee Studio. Watched Woody Allen's Melinda and Melinda, Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and Mona Lisa Smile and Runaway Bride. Add to this list the musical Little Shop of Horrors, the whimsical *batteries not included and the relatively unknown yet interesting The Best Man. And that's not all, have also been catching up on all my favourite sitcoms on Star World/Zee Cafe. Wonder if I've to sign up for a TV de-addiction seminar.

Cute Kiwi

Found this animated clip on YouTube and thought - what's wrong with spreading some cheer.

The Head-Banging Question

So the next time some guy in the U.S. loses his job to outsourcing, has he been Bangalored or Bengalurud?
