@Fine_Whining That’s cause this is basically a free holiday. You want to fund my tickets to Mumbai in December?
@rakeshrach Am sure. Weather is currently exceptional due to a post-depression in the Bay of Bengal. So far loving my (first) visit here.
Hyderabad traffic, not so much different from Bangalore’s.
Weather, pleasant too.
@rungta True that.
IF Amit Trivedi’s ‘No One Killed Jessica’ is an instant fav, THEN the loop doesn’t end.

Feel the need to break the silence.
11 hours have passed since anyone has posted anything on twitter.
It feels strange.
@Divya_Rani I agree! :)
Summary: One of the best days I’ve had in ages!! :)
@shikkha What is awesome?
Nanu bengalurinalli idini! :)
@shikkha He he!
@shikkha Yes, remember tomorrow is Q-day! :)
Music overdose. Information explosion. Filtering is hard. Spoilt for choice.
@rakeshrach Oh, loved the movie as well.
@rakeshrach Just discovered the song after having seen the movie yesterday. It sure is a beautiful song.

@rungta It tastes weirder after it’s defrosted. It gets all watery.
“Complaining is silly, act or forget.” I chose to forget. Today has been a crappy day.
Did I sleep in that late that it’s 2034 already?? http://yfrog.com/37bh8vp
When will the subtlety of humour hit mainstream bollywood?
Whereas Anwar, on a similar theme, so much more watchable and focussed. Yet the lack of credit. Such is the state.
Over-stretched. Over-Dramatic. Lack of simplicity. What did I expect from another Karan Johar movie. Yet I went. Save the buck. #MNIK
Hating these cycles of life.Hot & cold; sun & snow; day & night; blocked nose & then unblocked.
What else is out there to piss me off now?
Back to sleep. Reminders of last night demand that it is a must.
An upcoming Focus Features movie http://www.apple.com/trailers/focus_features/greenberg/[+]
If you haven’t already, this is for people who want the 2010 F1 timetable set in their iCals. formula1.til…te_2010.html[+]
@rungtaakki Join the club.
35 more days.
@shikkha How long will you be gone for?
@wateva It’s just my second one, and it’s cheaper than Odeon. :)
Yeah, thankfully they found the iPod.
@rungtaakki Saw it at a small art theatre, Cornerhouse, here in Manchester. They have 2 bollywood selections every month.
The Pool-one of the most realistically shot cinematography I’ve ever seen. Nice watch. http://www.apple.com/trailers/independent/thepool/[+]
Been 15 minutes, and you can already tell it’s an Australian Open final that you don’t want to miss.
Jason Reitman (and George Clooney) did it again for me.
Some I-don’t-knows need to be addressed. Like quickly.
Some nice picture(s)-of-the-day from in and around Bangalore. facebook.com…/browser.php[+] [It’s a facebook album]
@shikkha News travels fast, with a bit of coincidence. And don’t know where the ‘ue’ at the end of dialogue went. :P
@shikkha Why you off to Hubli? Some development dialog thing?
@rakeshrach Thank you.
@wateva thank you!
Officially a graduate again.
WTF! RT @htTweets On her 54th birthday, Mayawati has been gifted a three-acre plot - on moon! hindustantim…-498133.aspx[+]
After an hour of playing with it, I’ve come to the conclusion that analogue SLRs are just baffling, even without film inside it.
@shikkha Who was ill-treating you?
@rungtaakki Oh nice! with whom? Good luck!!
@rungta The MoSoTer was a bit slow this time, but succeeded. Did you get the song?
Four more days to go for daddy dearest to land in the UK. Much joy
There it comes… First nightmare confirmation. The first train is delayed!!
Frozen Britain. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_depth/8447023.stm[+]
@rungta Happy Birthday!!!!
Have you seen so much snow on a tree before? http://flic.kr/p/7tmuUo[+]
@rakeshrach The breathing under water album sure keeps you wanting to play it on a loop. Beautiful fusion melody. Thanks for mentioning it.
@rungta and you’ll be back soon too. Not to fret. Have a safe journey.
and I thought you’re leaving tomorrow.
After her 2002 album, this is the first one that’s caught my attention. The Fall by Norah Jones is quite a pleasant listen.
Possibly going through a preview of the empty nest syndrome.
@rungtaakki glad you had fun! :)
@rungta that’s a perfectly timed vacation.
