To Grey's!

I just HAD to write this, to thank this awesome, awesome, awesome show! So, here's to thanking Grey's..

For the most wonderful mix of character, the most intriguing behaviours, the most emotionally mind numbing screen presence of all of these characters.

For bringing good scripts into the Idiot box..For a narration that's so thought provoking, it gets people to go look up quotes from the show on Wikiquotes!

For a dark and twisty lead protagonist, who in some way represents this unknown side of everyone of us..And for making us fall in love with this character despite her million shortcomings.

So what is it with Indian authors? Is it hard to write a simple sentence without using the "Right-click-synonyms" keys in MS Word? Their answer may go something like :
The complication is but a subtle glimpse into the incongruity of a s…

Of Wishes and Horses!

I wished for something desperately, and it came true..So, I racked my brain for a long time, wondering which of the thousand things I did helped this happen. My first suspect, the zillions of eyelashes I blew off, squeezing my eyes as I fervently prayed for my alluring job to come to me. I can't pinpoint what must have transpired after my full strength blow to the poor little eyelash, but my guess is, it flew across the skies, on the look out for the perfect job for me, landed on the desk of a HR guy in the company of my choice, lodged itself between my resume and his desk, pushed my resume till it was on top of his nose, then did a little jig to catch his attention, and finally threatened to tickle him, till he didn't pick up my file, rush to his senior and get the process going..Yeah, I think that's what happened!
Some of you may find my hypothesis slightly incredulous. Only and only because I respect my audience, I decided to keep aside my eyelash theory. So if it wasn&#…
