Life Lessons From Queen JLo Who’s Just the BEST Life Coach EVER!

If you know even the wee-est bit of Jennifer Lopez then you know that she is, was and probably will be a powerhouse, an unstoppable force of nature ever and ever and ever. This woman seems to have done it all and done it better. Not only is she a phenomenal actress, performer, singer, song writer and dancer, she is just as terrific a human being. All the while seeming to not age a day over 25. If there is anyone who seems to have figured out this puzzle called life, it’s got to be her. Every word out of…Continue Reading

Indian Weddings, Annoying Relatives & Shah Rukh Khan; This Comedian Nailed It ALL

It’s not uncommon to spot hordes of stand-up comedians in India, as of today. Comedy is a tricky thing. You can either have the audience hooting you on or there’s this deadpan silence even after you’ve cracked your best joke. I guess what I am trying to say is this: it’s difficult to find a stand-up comedian you can continue watching, show after show. But Sundeep Sharma’s raw, unprecedented comedy proves he’s a natural. We all have a bunch of ridiculously annoying relatives who are such a pain in the ass to deal with. Weddings or no weddings, they seem…Continue Reading

If You Didn’t LOL At These 14 Bollywood Scenes, Then You’re Dead On The Inside

I’m not the happiest person to be around. Really. Smiles appear once every 300 years, and most of them when I’m in front of a screen. When I’m watching brilliantly written scenes that make even my resting bitch-face crack up. So if you’re having a bad day, and simply want to LOL your way through it: here you go. And if you don’t LOL at this, then maybe you’ve forgotten how to laugh. When Veeru drunkenly stood on the water tower when Basanti rejected his proposal in ‘Sholay’. Jai literally giving zero fucks added to the scene. When Geet loses…Continue Reading

When You Have A Million Followers, But Only One Best Friend

I’m someone who constantly checks social media. Who tracks how many people have seen my Instagram stories and tracks EVERY stupid poll EVER. Mostly because it gives me the illusion of well…having people care. And the truth is, they probably do. I mean, they care enough to reply to my stories, and be nice to me when the Internet can be a truly, truly dark place. And honestly, their replies make me forget the friends I’ve made IN REAL LIFE. You know, the best friend who stuck around before I was even on social media. Who’s been there for 8…Continue Reading

13 Indie Indian Films That Are SO Much Better Than 100CR Blockbusters

I sort of lost faith in Indian cinema as I watched EVERY Salman Khan film rake in the big bucks. But then an amazing thing happened: I chanced upon the trailer of ‘Waiting’ on YouTube, and felt myself turn into a puddle of tears. And that- that opened me up to the plethora of Indie films that really deserve to be seen by so many more people. If you’re like me, and SO done with the commercial, masala flicks or really…just looking for a change in the things you watch – well, this list is for you. Miss Lovely (2012)…Continue Reading

21 Peppy Yet Sweet Hindi Songs You Should Dedicate To Your Best Friend

I wish instead of all the crap that they’ve taught us about love over the years, we had been educated on the beauty of friendship instead. But maybe it’s better this way. Because the best things just happen. Like finding that one weird soul that completely vibes with yours. I am pretty sure we all have that one human who makes life worth living. And this one human is so much more than the “soulmate” we’ve been asked to wait for. Having a best friend, I feel, is like the universe sending you a gigantic gift of love. And if…Continue Reading

19 Indie Artists Who Prove Indian Music Is Much More Than Just Bollywood

I used to be the sort of person who used to ONLY listen to foreign artists. Mostly because after I heard the 15th sh*tty remix of “Humma Humma”, I kind of gave up on modern music from India. But then, I slowly got introduced to the Indie scene here. Starting with artists like Nucleya and Divine. And there was no turning back after that (I mean, I still listen to Taylor Swift, but anyway). Parekh & Singh This dream pop-duo from Kolkata has become my go-to for music that’ll make a bad day better. Their lyrics are beautiful and their…Continue Reading

15 Brilliant, Award-Winning Indian Films That You Haven’t Heard About

So I’m going to start this with a confession: I wasn’t always a big movie buff. In fact, me falling in love with movies is quite a recent happening, mostly because I discovered that Indian movies are so much more than the commercial blockbusters that I’ve been put through. And when I found that out – well, there was no turning back. The most heartbreaking bit? So many Indian movies are stunning works of cinema, so many of them get recognised abroad. But they remain unknown to a vast majority. Because who said the best India can produce is Bollywood…Continue Reading

17 Beautiful Movies That Taught Me A Thing Or Two About Real Love

Ever since we’ve been introduced to cinema, we’ve found people running around in meadows, with their dupattas flying behind them, being chased by a dude in too-tight pants. Well, we now know real love is so NOT any of that. There are no firecrackers lighting up the sky or violins playing in the background when you first meet them. Nope. So many times, we pass by our soulmates thinking there could never have been a future with them. Sometimes it takes years to figure out that the one person you call your best friend, is actually the one you should…Continue Reading
