The Clash of Movies

For the past 2-3 years I've seen this trend where there won't be any good movies for quite some time and then suddenly BOOM...you have blockbuster after blockbusters.....all during your exams ! Some of the best movies happen to get released when you've blown up your allowances and you feel guilty to spend more, or when exams are 7 days away, or worst case when your sick and all you want to do is curl up in your bed and sleep.


If you thought this was bad enough, let me tell you you're wrong. We're living in the era of social media, so every movie ticket sold get itself a place on Snapchat and Instagram (not to mention the #...so everyone makes sure its trending). Talk about jealousy.



2016 has been a really good year for me....except for the fact that I haven't been able to watch many movies. Not that its mattered much because I have the best critics as my friends, who won't let you regret your inability of watching your movie. After all that's what friends are for, isn't it ?

Nevertheless, I present you with some 2016 movies that have some Bollywood biggies starring in them. Check out how movie lucky been last year. Good luck with your score !

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.


 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…

1st road trip – 1314kms – Mumbai-Goa-Mumbai

The journey is more important than the destination. I learnt driving 2 years ago (enrolled for a driving class 3 days after my 18th birthday) and since then I’ve driven on every possible type of road. But I wanted more. Flying by air didn’t excite me. I wanted to look out of the window to trees and open roads; not clouds. 2 weeks ago after lots of pleading or logical reasoning (as I like to put it), I finally convinced my parents to accompany me on a road trip to Goa. At first, they were a bit apprehensive of the length of the journey (owing to previous bad experiences with bus travelling), but then again, you gotta do what you want to do.

The route we selected was Mumbai – Pune – Satara – Kolhapur – Amboli Ghat – Baga, Goa. We only did one stopover for the night at Pune. The rest was a continuous drive with only a 45 minute halt for lunch before the start of the 73km long, 3.5 hour Amboli Ghat.


Note: Just after the food mall at Lonavala and before the start of the ghats, is a small s…

Of Goan Food, Drinks, ‘Feels’ and Stay

I went to Goa with my parents. And trust me, it was fun. For one, you really don’t have to worry about money when you’re out travelling, shopping, eating or drinking. Secondly, you have a 90% success rate of going to all the places YOU want to go to, instead of compromising for the sake of your friends.

Now I stayed in Goa for 4 nights, two of which were in Baga and the other two in Candolim. Both places were booked via Airbnb. One advice: Avoid booking a hotel room, even if it’s near a beach (I don’t understand people’s obsession with beaches; they’re quite dirty and crowded). Instead,.......
