a happy new year indeed!











...i've been meaning to write ever since the last sun went down on 2006...damn! it is almost the end of jan already!! and here's wishing you all good things this new year. i couldn't have asked for a better start to the year - am lighting both - kbc and koffee, and between shahrukh n karan, going all crosseyed and hugely sleep-deprived. but it's been fun...all the pressure n the attention these two shows get. kbc back with the same set but big demands for "something new", besides of course, srk. more about that later.


koffee was a lot more fulfilling with a new set. have really enjoyed lighting sharmista roy's sets. so correctly proportioned and an understated chic look. needles to say this has consumed all of me until last evening. running from one set (in film city) to the other in yashraj (andheri) tho' wasn't so much fun. crawling amidst honking n fumes for a full hour n fifteen minutes over a mere 12kms or so!! exasperating...annoying...tiring...infuriating... how i missed my bicycle!!


watched that last '06 sun go down with so much relief...a hard year it was, esp the end... made worse by the absolutely horrific noida maniac - children abused, killed, bodies mutilated n thrown down a gutter...over months...while the poor parents only got barked at by the police...and the sickening tv coverage n the usual political "passing the parcel"...

scary...while partying on new year's eve at mukul's i didn't want to think....just wanted to forget...got high, danced with no one in particular and left without saying bye! :)

but i still miss my bro-in-law a lot...mad man...fat man! cheers to you and to the final settlement of the chembur family property matter. "When HE closes one door, HE always opens a window, at least"...or so it is said...you win some, you lose some...but why do we have to lose at all...like mike...so so broken to have lost his sister...

and some good news from delhi...c!'s mum is recovering slowly from her angioplasty and fracture. while her dad hasn't been too impressesd with his new "digital" hearing aid. i hope i can make it back to delhi before it hots up again, to spend some more time with them.

hope to be more regular with my postings too...this jan-end will be a year since i begun this blog! wishing you all lots of happiness n peace ...looks like i'll have to end this with amen!! ;)
