SUPERSTAR yaaru nu kettaa…

A saga.

Happy birthday 62 to a man who gave Wayfarers the due credit it deserved, revolutionized smoking trends and quite simply changed the course of film history with nothing but just a simple flick of his hair.
Here’s to him celebrating many many more to come, the true Rockstar way. 🙂


Pride To The Bone

Writing this in the country that started it all is a feeling beyond verbalization. I still remember the history textbooks which taught us the incidents, catastrophes and events that eventually lead to this day, our Independence day. The Jallianwalabagh massacre, the Dandi march and the Purna Swaraj, though the dates seem a bit hazy, the story narrated through the pictures in our 7th and 8th grade SST textbooks remain vivid and distinct. A story that made independent India what it is today, a story that brings a smile so fuelled with pride and glory and a story of a time period in history that gloriously describes a nation’s unity in a time of great difficulty. A story, which is the reason  why we call India our motherland. A story for time itself to take.

On August 15 1947, a new day was born for any other but a nation was reborn with a new soul in a land called Bharath. Today, it is with colossal pride and boundless joy that I, Vandhana Mothinath celebrate my country’s 64th Independence day. For all the jawans and soldiers who have laid down their lives to help us live ours, JAI HIND!

My country, my home , my heart. India, forever more.
