If you love Goa, by the time this movie ends, you will not be the first one to do so. Most of the people I know, definitely ended up packing their bags and heading off to Goa, post they saw it. And because it’s a movie about friends, you’ll also feel like asking your friends to accompany you as well. The movie was also shot extensively in/around Sydney in Australia.

Learning To Finally Let Go…

It is an intrinsic part of human nature to become too attached to things or people. And so it can be very difficult to figure out as to how to let go from these attachments. Though secretly we might know that they are not good for us yet detachment is just too much to process.

Some people say that this a very addictive behaviour and this turn is the root of all our suffering. Believe you me, it may seem as a very strong statement, but it is TRUE!

But what I cannot figure out is that why is it so damn difficult to let go? Why is it so hard to give up a habit gone bad or an ex-lover? When we know that these very things, are filling our life with unhappiness and are not letting us move forward in life. Most of us suffer from a feeling of inner emptiness and in hope to try and fill it, we hold on to various attachments.

Some may eat or drink too much, another’s may cling to an unloving ex-partner while a some may even get addicted other ways to fill our inner emptiness. The only way we can let go is to take a good, hard look at the things and people that we are so attached to. And try and make a sense as to do they really fill that nagging sense of inner emptiness?

All we need to burst the fantasy bubble that we have built around our addictive clinging and then we need to make a hard decision to give it up. And stick to it for good. Another good way to let go is to pick and choose the memories you want to keep. And slowing letting go of people and things even from our memory.

You need to stop worrying, stop obsessing over the things we could have done differently to make them stay. And realizing that whatever happens, it happens for a reason and life can be just as good, just as beautiful, even without them in it.

tumblr_mrzgctBkhH1sfwumuo1_500

This famous dialogue from a popular television series called ‘Gossip Girl’ is perhaps the most apt description of what fashion trends ought to be. Even though you may have all the money in the world but that certainly doesn’t mean that you will be the most stylish person on Earth. More often than not, it has been said, either you are born with or you don’t have it at all. And before you let the horses of your imagination run wild, let me tell you I am talking about ‘fashion’.

While most of us aspire to be truly fashionable all our life but very few of us actually achieve this in our life time. Each season comes with its new set of fashion  trends, the beauty lies in finding a fine balance between what’s ‘in’ and what ‘works for you’. To make matters simpler for you here are a couple of fashion trends for summer which you can easily incorporate in your wardrobe and make million heads turn your way this spring summer.

1. Go chic with black and white: Let’s just stick to basics; some things never go out of fashion irrespective of the season. Black and white as a trend’s isn’t groundbreaking; yet you can easily spot black and white everywhere. What is really interesting is to know, what makes it a spring summer’s hot favourite? Play around with your own take of this classic color combination through various textures, patterns, and silhouettes.

How TV Is Making You Fat And Stupid

Yes, of course I am not kidding, watching TV can make you fat. And if the idiot box is your best friend then you need to read further to know how it will make you a very unhealthy person eventually.

homerizlazyazz-couch-potato

Come to think of it, there must be a reason why television is called the idiot box and people who watch it are called couch potatoes. Doesn’t that name trigger doubts in your mind as such? Or is it just me? IDIOT box as the name suggests will make one!!

Recent studies have revealed that an hour of watching TV burns in total 55 calories while if you were out than now sitting on the couch things would have been way different. As compared to walking where you burn 230 calories, riding a bike where you burn 220 calories or dancing that results in burning 330 calories all this is way more than the amount you burn while watching TV.

In fact while sleeping you lose 70 calories, while typing on a computer you lose say about 80 calories, and eating might result to expending close to 100 calories than watching TV. And still you sit endless in front of the damn thing.

In general the food industry spends about $1 billion annually on advertising targeted at children and teenagers. And these advertisements lead to inevitably adding on extra pounds to your weight. As a good chips or chocolate commercial will plague your mind and initiate a curiosity and craving that will eventually lead to you spending money. And in the process also in taking tons of EXTRA calories.

Let me say this, once and for all whatever the actors and actresses might say about how good the product is that they are endorsing, THEY DON’T USE IT. So having honey will not make you look like Bipasha or even having a drink will not make you as cool as Saif. It will all make you FAT, if not anything else!!

As much as you will like to deny it its true that most of us have dinner with the TV. Not literally, but what I mean is that many of us eat in front of the TV. And since we’re distracted and eating mindlessly, we end up eating way more than we realize simply because we’re not paying attention!!

Make a mental note of all this and see if still want to WASTE your time in front of the TV and become a fat couch potato.

8 Things Women Hate About Men!

“Men will be men” is an excuse that men all over the world use to cover their ass. Yet still that doesn’t give them a pass to do what they want. Women in general have a long list of annoying habits that men have. And if by chance you ask them to compile it you will have an unending list of things that they hate and you’d eventually have one extensive collection of cons.

d

Here are top 8 things that men do that we as women collectively hate and men often than not, don’t even realize they do them.

1. Adjusting their privates
Yes, there I said it!! Now it isn’t that you have just grown out of after puberty. Men have a lot of fascination with what lurks beneath and they can spend a lot of time down there to ‘sort the boys out.’ But please, even if it may just be for the purposes of comfort but it is something that women time and time again have complained about. STOP DOIING it in public, it isn’t the most hygienic practice!!

2. Poor hygiene
Now let me just spell it out, this a BIG no no. Men, please for the love of god, wear nice cologne and deodorant 24/7. Cologne is in no way a replacement for soap and water. A good scent is a natural aphrodisiac and we LOVE it. And if you didn’t know, it is one of the first things a woman notices in a man. So invest on the perfect cologne.

3. Never taking directions
What is with men when they feel that they are the best drivers in the world? It’s like they have an in built GPS system and they know directions to everywhere. So, chill and understand that it’s ok to take directions sometimes! Trust me, it’s better than getting lost or being late!!

4. Forgetting
“Men are bad with dates and also at remembering just about anything in general” but WHY? Women absolutely loathe it when you forget. Although we may forgive you for the occasional forgotten detail, but it is not that okay when you make it a habit. But forgetting something important, like dinner plans, or worse, an anniversary or birthday is a disaster. Is just a big no!! Put a reminder in the phone on email anywhere but just try!!

5. Ogling
Let me just clear this once and for all. Women absolutely DESPISE catching their men ogling other women. It’s not that women don’t ogle, we do too, but there is a certain level of subtlety involved. Try at least be more discreet about it.

6. Cockiness
Women in general do not want anything to do with a cocky guy. Why? Because cocky guys are the number one cheaters and this is an established fact. Women know that cocky guys are secretly insecure as people so they feel the need to overcompensate. Try and be let’s just be real, that should work!

7. Selective hearing
We know that men are completely incapable of multitasking and even scientists have demonstrated the same. So pretending to watch a program while your wife or girlfriend is attempting to initiate a conversation will never end well. Because in this scenario, the TV usually wins. And pretending to listen to her or selectively listening to what she is saying is more annoying to women than just not listening at all.

stupid

8. Talking about your ex
Nothing can be a bigger put off that constantly taking about your ex. Talking about the ex is a “NO GO” area. Never ever do it. Mentioning your ex is a lose-lose situation. If a by chance this topic comes up try and not get into the details. It will be good for you only in the long run, trust me.

Why I Hate Bollywood!

Bollywood has certainly lost its charm and even more so in the case of its low standard of originality. Film makers these days seem to be in the rat race to make money and in doing so they are producing movies with no head or tail. And before you jump to bite my head off, of course, there are a few exceptions.

tumblr_mo56wdnxHU1s6pukzo1_500

But the majority movies that seem to have crossed the 100 crores are just excuses called movies. Or rather they are just mass entertainers that make no sense whatsoever and are related to nothing sensible in life. Anyway, here are the reasons why I simply hate Bollywood!

Let’s get to the crux of the problem here. Bollywood plots are the sole reason why they make crappy movies. The boy meets girl #insert song, boy and girl fall in love #insert song. The hero aka the boy is poor and the girl’s family disapproves of the union, #insert sad song.

The boy gets into a huge fight with the uncle, past lover, future lover, father, cousins etc etc of the girl ( insert fake punching sounds), the parents finally give in to the union, #insert over acting and huge droplets of tears flowing from the parents. The couple finally gets married, #insert marriage song, THE END. Now, what exactly we got to see in maximum movies.

tumblr_memr3wMYxp1qf3v8bo1_500

Not only is the plot that sucks usually, it is also the charaterisation, treatment of the plot -all are way too over the top. And have no connect whatsoever to the audience. It’s like a three hour long torture in the name of movie with people trying too hard.

Next excessive use of item songs make me hate Bollywood even more, not only are they demeaning but they all run down women and objectify them. Most of these songs play no role in the ‘so called development of the story’ and are just cheap excuses to cater to the baser needs of the front row audience.

From songs we move to the lyrics, the lyrics of some of the chart busters go like ‘mera pyaar,pyaar, pyaar, hukka bar’!! Or another jem like ‘aachi baat kar li bahut, abh karuga tere saath gaandi baat’. With poetic masterpieces like this why would anyone want to miss a movie!!

tumblr_mtef89GFMy1s1ncoso1_500

More than 75% of the actors and actresses in Bollywood have no idea why they in the profession, it’s like anyone and I mean anyone can get up one day and declare that they can act and join the Bollywood bandwagon. Their acting ability is limited to over the top expressions coupled with pelvic thrusts. All this and much more put me in position but to HATE Bollywood!!
