Shanti.... Shanti

"If your heart is a volcano, how shall you expect flowers to bloom in your hands?" asked Kahlil Gibran. I don't see too many flowers in this city of ours. But I can sense several volcanoes - some dormant (dangerous!), others spewing lava and destroying all in the path. I find volcanic eruptions most fascinating. I remember standing on the edge of a dormant volcano in Indonesia and being mesmerised by its terrible beauty. A still, acid green lake at its evil heart completely captivated my attention, and reminded me of the dead eyes of a few nasty people I have known in my life.
Tonite, I shall keep my date with the Lalbaug Ka Raja. Inshallah. The cops have warned me it is daunting indeed to get anywhere close to the Moorti. Well. I don't get easily daunted. Wish me luck, blogdosts!
I caught the promos of Fashion. They looked verry Bhandarkar. But if I want to watch clips of fashion shows, I can as well follow Fashion Week on tv. Perhaps Bhandarkar does not want to reveal too much (pun intended), but the promos gave nothing away. They were like the promos of ftv.Priyanka looks like a million bucks when she declares she is getting into modelling to become a supermodel - not just a model.Kangana ?? Who dat?? The girl is unrecognisable these days. She seems to have had virtuually every body part replaced or fixed. She has become another human being altogether.Suman Jr. must really love the plastic lass.
I have been dying to eat 'ookdi chhey modak'. No luck so far. Have promised myself a treat if I manage a darshan.The inauspicious Shraddh period starts on the 16th. I am a total sucker for such things.
The good news about Kiara is that she is doing just fine and being thoroughly pampered. Chicken Liver pate on toast. And shark soup. No wonder they say it's a dog's life! Some life...some dog!

pehle, Muah! to sexy Kiara. so happy that she is fine now.

Volcanic eruptions... and molten lava... sab milega idharichhh! lol.

now over to (not at all Madhur)Bhandarkar's films. Now he is predictable, I know that there will be one scene on homosexuality(man sexploitation), one on child sex abuse, one sequence on sexual exploitation of woman and some reality bytes on politicos and incidences related.

I am cocksure, in fashion, he will have some wardrobe malfunction ka scenes, some overtly slutty fashion chokris, and some page 3 celebs smoking cigars and making some nasty comments.

Bhandarkars films are for a family audience. PUN INTENDED!

I hope you have/had a lovely darshan. I have never been too any BIGTIME sarvajanik ganeshotsav but I hear the energy is brilliant.

Did you get yourself a sweet treat?

Aham... I loved your formula for a Bhandarkar film! They have got rather formulaic haven't they? Bechara Robert Altman. Hehehehehe

Sanjuayyar... perhaps on your blog, could you give us your easy recipe for ukdi che modak. I have never tried making them but since you assure us they are easy, worth a try!

@ Aur Ek Kiran!
haan re Bhandarkar is so environment friendly.

see in recognition of his efforts in recycling the government of India awards him national awards year after year.

The only thing that change in his movie is the profession.

LOL@ Aham's take on Bhandarkar movies! So well said.

So finally, I googled ukdi che modak. I had never heard of it till I found this recipe on Sify. Sounds like, Gujiya, only in a different form factor. Yummy, bring on the easy recipe Sunjuayyar!

De hope you had a fabulous time at Lalbaug, and finally satisfied your sweet tooth. As far as Kiara, wished I was in her paws... Truly what a life!
