I'll love you baby- No matter if your BLACK or WHITE

A bit over the top ? Overreaction ? Yes ? No ? Maybe ?
My Answer ?

No. A big fat NO.

Well for those of you who don't know what happened, here's a gist. Actress Tannishtha Chatterjee visited the Colors Comedy Night Bachao Taaza set to shoot a roast sequence.

 A ROAST is basically an event where an individual is subjected to "good natured" (remember this) jokes at their expense intended to amuse the event's wider audience - in short, us.

 However this was one such event in which I think they kind of forgot the "good natured " part and substituted it with something else which they thought would work out, but as we can see, didn't. Bad Assumption.

Now. what that "something else" was the anchors saying something about her dark skin(which would put anyone off), I doubt anyone will get to see it. The very first reason being that Miss. Chatterjee told the organizers to cut her part. Fair enough. However, one thing that we do know is that her walking out of the sets was the right thing to do.Action speaks louder than words, you see.

Want to know what triggered off this reaction ?
The actress was described as "Kaali Kalooti" and was asked if she was eating jamun since childhood as a result of which "mooh kala hai". Seriously ? Whats happened to Indian Comedy ? Bure din aa gaye. I didn't even give a half smile at that "joke".

Within a few hours, Colors channel did issue an apology. But the damage is done.
Here are some excerpts from the actress's Facebook post :


I couldn't have put it better than her, so i'm not going to write anything more. Don't let anything wrong happen with you. Even Instagram and Facebook have Report options. This is our country.  Just because you have been given the freedom to make fun of someone, it does not mean you transform comedy into cheap comedy. It's good to spread happiness, make someone laugh. But you know what, we all have brains, we all have common sense. Lets use it and do stuff the right way.

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).

Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

Raising slogans of "Major Kaustubh Rane, Amar Rahe" and …

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…
