Why I gave up Sidharth Malhotra for Shubh Mangal Savdhan

From the time Student of the Year released I decided that come what may, I would always ensure that I watched all of Sidharth Malhotra movies. He had almost come to par with Shah Rukh Khan for me (I became his fan from my first time in the theatre - Main Hoon Na). But in the last 2-3 years I've started going for movies based on the story content and not on it's actor. Indian cinema has started to change for the better; or let's say evolve. Scriptwriters are coming up with content which is more relatable. They have started mentioning issues which happens in our society on a daily basis.

In India, whatever you do is invariably not for yourself but for the society. Think of doing something different, and the family will say "samaaj kya sochegi? " or "log kya kahenge" (what will the society think or what will people say?). It's impossible to be happy like this. Even changing your Whatsapp status to My Life, My Rules doesn't work. Hopefully, with the help of media and every marketing agency promoting their movies in such innovative ways, it will give people the courage to do something different; to do what they want without giving a damn about what society thinks. There are 5 movies which I really liked which deal with the crises of many people but have never been reported.

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.

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…
