Thoughts and More!

There are times when you want to leave everything and go on a holiday, probably in a countryside or any place that has the power to keep you away from your laptop and mobile. I've been in that mode since a week now and the funniest part is, I really don't know why!

Chiplun, A beautiful village in Konkan

I've been lucky enough to catch up on some movies and also managed to read a few books.
Finished reading Kazuo Ishiguro's 'Nocturnes' last week.
Started reading 'The River of Smoke' (Yes! Finally), second part of the Ibis trilogy by Amitav Ghosh. Looks good so far. I loved the first part 'Sea of Poppies' and I am sure I will love this one as well. Last year, Amitav Ghosh had released this book at Crossword and I had missed the opportunity to get an author signed copy. I hope he comes back to release the last part of this Trilogy.
Amitav sir, are you listening?

Moving on, It's World Music Day today!
I am not happy with the kind of songs that were composed this year in Bollywood, especially the likes of 'Jalebis' 'Ladoos' and 'Channos'. I am not asking these composers to bring out legendary stuff, but we can definitely do with some good quality music and lyrics, right?
 But still, some new peppy number have made it to my iPod. Amongst the songs that are played on repeat include 'That's All I Really Wanna Do', 'Mukhtasar' and 'Jabse mere dil ko Uff' from Teri Meri Kahaani, 'Tumhi ho Bandhu' and 'Daaru Desi' from Cocktail etc.
Which bollywood song of 2012 tops your playlist?

Talking about music, I saw the new Garnier Light Moisturiser advertisement on TV the other day. The jingle is SO catchy. I kept humming the tune all day long when I first saw the commercial. I particularly liked the setting of this advertisement. It's very cute and chic, with bright colors like Yellow and Green dominating the surroundings, Priyanka's costume and even headphones
(Those colors are associated with Garnier Light range of products).
I have used Garnier products in the past, one of my favorites being the Garnier Body Cocoon lotion.
With Priyanka Chopra as their brand ambassador, I am sure her fans (aka PCManiacs) will rush to the stores, humming this tune, to buy this new moisturizer.
Have you used this product? Do let me know your experience!

Newspapers were filled with news about the Lakme India Fashion Week model auditions.

The Panel

Music, movies, books and more, My life is incomplete without them.
The weekend starts tomorrow and first up on my bucket list is to watch 'Teri Meri Kaahani'.
(Why? Because it stars Shahid Kapoor).

"Khuda Ne Jab Tujhe Banaya Hoga,
Ek Suroor Sa Uske Dil Mai Aaya Hoga,
Socha Hoga Kya Dunga Tohfe Mai Tujhe,
Tab Jake Usne Mujhe Banaya Hoga"

(Don't worry, I am not the Shayar here, it's a dialogue from TMK)
I still haven't got my ticket, thanks to Fame cinemas who decided to delayed the advance booking. So, I shall buy them today and watch the film with my Mommy tomorrow
(Yeah! She is my Shopping and Movie partner).

So, what are your plans for this weekend? Planning to watch Teri Meri Kahaani or Gangs of Wasseypur? Do share your review/opinion!
