Taj Mahal getting a facelift
May 16th, 2007
I knew this! I have always given beauty tips and maintained that they will give you the results. Getting famous with my beauty tips, people from Parliament came to see me, asking for help to give a facelift to “Taj Mahal”. 17th Century marble mausoleum, built by Mughal emperor Shahjahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz is turning yellow. Air pollution monitoring and curbs on nearby industrial activity have failed to prevent India’s famed monument to love, the TajMahal.Ten years ago Delhi Supreme Court imposed a ban on motor vehicles in the vicinity of the marble monument and ordered regular monitoring of the air quality around the monument. Vehicles cannot drive within 1.5 miles (2km) of the site and ...


Lovely song from Huntrez – “Releh”
May 15th, 2007
This is one of my favourite songs and I want to share it with everybody. There is nothing so special in it but I don’t know why I love it. The lyrics are every catchy and once you hear it, you are bond to hum it all day. It’s very interesting the way “Rehle” is pronounced “Releh” in the song. The singer “Huntrez” who is also dancing in the video is looking very funny. The whole video is funny and sexy, especially when girls slap their bum. So have fun….


Google again…
May 15th, 2007
I have love and hate kind of relationship with Google. Few days back I email Google to know that if I can use my domain “” just for fun stuff and purely to write positive things about Google, but they refused and I was denied to use that domain.

Mandira Bedi & her Saree
May 13th, 2007
I wonder what level one can go to get attention or to be in limelight. Flop actress and cricket commentator Mandira Bedi, while hosting a show on Set Max channel during the final of the World Cup Saturday, wore a sari that had the national flags of 16 participating countries printed on it. India's flag, however, found place near her knees, which allegedly violates the Flag Code. The controversial sari was designed for Mandira by Satya Paul especially for coverage of the World Cup. "I reckon if Satya Paul had taken some more pain in designing the saree, the Indian flag would have found top place on the saree." Gyan Prakash Kamra, a Jaipur resident, has accused Mandira of disrespecting the tricolour ...
