The Spanish warrior returns!

The Spanish warrior returns!

A seemingly innocuous day in my life, which generally starts at around 1pm everyday, started at 8:30am today. Why?

IPL 3: Impressions so far..

It is that time of the year, when no big-banner Bollywood movie releases and Ekta Kapoor does not come out with a sensational and tear-wrenching soap(which after my mother finishes watching, blames me for being a bad son in real life, as if I was the very son in the tv serial who threw the … Continue reading
