I can't be a Gloomy Gus for too long. I either seek out stuff to read or watch that lifts my spirits to some extent if not fully. The lockdown has come at the time when the kids usually splash around in the pool, play out till they've got to be dragged home by their... Continue Reading →
Of all the stories floating around about Hitler's demise, am completely inclined to believe the one where he met his end in the bunker. That was a lockdown too and he was shut in for an unforeseeable period with a "loved one"...complete recipe for disaster!

Excuse the segue here but I fail to understand how people can say "bachchey... Continue Reading →
Hey if I could come up with a list of songs which go against social distancing, I can surely find a few which are all about it as well. Let's take a look, shall we? Again, no order or preference to them. Just the ones which popped in my mind- 1. Run Snow Patrol 2.Hit... Continue Reading →
