Somebody who goes by the name of Sudhish Kamath has written a few words on what he thinks is the stereotyping of Madrasi's in Chennai Express. Now, Mr. Sudhish Kamath is a film critic who write for a respected newspaper - The Hindu - & so I did read his article to read his thoughts on the movie. And boy, was I disappointed. His Chennai upbringing & resulting indignation at what he thinks is an assault on the tamilian culture totally clouded his thoughts & has resulted in an article that is borderline stupid & plain silly.

I was thinking about Eid this morning. Now, all of you know that I am a pretty non-religious person & religious festivals have no meaning in my life. But I still wait for every religious festival. The only reason behind that is the fact that major movies release around festival times. Especially Eid - since this has traditionally been a Salman Khan release day & this year it was the badshah himself who came on screen on Eid (well, another reason for Eid is the food). Isn't this the Almighty's way of making an infidel like me await a religious event?

It is hard being a professional & a dog lover at the same time. You clean up shit at work & then you clean up shit at home. Especially if you have puppies. Especially if you work in the fickle IT industry where the quality of skills are about as good as Sajid Khan's directorial skills.The only difference is that after all cleaning is done you can, at least, play with your cute puppies & it feels nice when they lick your face. Try having people at work do that to you after you clean up after them....NOT SO MUCH FUN! Believe me.
