The sudden death of actress Sridevi has left the country shocked and grieving. Just 54, Sridevi died after suffering a cardiac arrest on Saturday in Dubai where she was attending the wedding of actor Mohit Marwah, a nephew of the Kapoor family.

 Sridevi, respected by her colleagues as a fine actor with a gift for comedy, is considered the first female superstar of Indian cinema and leaves behind her a rich legacy of films in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi. 

Life is so unpredictable. You don't even know if the person standing in front of you will be with you the next moment or not. No wonder they say, never do anything you will regret or jo bolna hai achcha bolo nhi toh chup raho. 



Earlier the average death age in India was around 69-70 years. Now, it's dropped drastically to 50-55. In the past 2 years, 3 of my friends have lost one parent. All sudden deaths. 1 person from my school died in an accident. Incidents like these sort of freak you out. It makes you wonder if studying so much, working through the night, worrying about things, eating/staying healthy, is actually going to guarantee you a long life. 

Moral of the story: Apna har din aise jiyo....jaise ki aakhri ho !

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…

CRPF Personnel martyred in J&K

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is the largest of India's Central Armed Police Forces. The CRPF's primary role lies in assisting the State/Union Territories in police operations to maintain law and order and counter insurgency. With 239 battalions and various other establishments, the CRPF is considered India's largest paramilitary force and has a sanctioned strength of 313,678 personnel. 



Yesterday, at 3:15pm, a Scorpio driven by a Jaish suicide bomber who was a local youth carrying a huge amount of explosives, deliberately crash banged into 1 of the 78 trucks which formed part of the convoy carrying approximately 2500 CRPF personnel who were returning from their vacation and proceeding to resume work in Awantipora, 30kms from Srinagar.
