Sania Mirza- Sanjay Manjrekar tweet and the troll.

Twitter is increasingly becoming a hater's paradise and trollers heaven (especially in India). I would not be surprises if very soon most of the brands as well as celebrities, sportsperson, thinkers etc.

Just see a sample tweet e.g.

Here you can see that Indian Tennis player Sania Mirza tweeted that 

Today I complete 80 consecutive weeks as the number 1 player in d world👆its been an amazing journey and just inspires me to work harder

Just to correct him ex-cricketer and commentator corrected that No. 1 doubles player
No 1 doubles player you mean. Congrats!

Seems like a genuine reply/correction and and a wish.
But the trollers had a fun day see these tweets
Do you always need to nitpick?
old habits die hard.... the most irritating person on TV. Sudhar ja bhai mere

this is typical Konkani खवचटपणा. 😂 आवडलंय. congrats.

boring as his commentary.... he always wanted to be but end up becoming an average commentator..

medicore cricketer, medicore commentator, medicore tweet....

And there were many more, from his commentary to cricketing skill to regionalism the trollers started trolling him for all the reason. Recently Pritish Nandy also in his article wrote how Twitter is having a slow death.

Uber moves Shalini and Dharam (Pros & Cons)

Uber has started its new campaign on the theme, Uber moves Shalini and Dharam.

Like most of the mother Shalini's mother also looking for a suitable match for her. While commuting through UBERPool She is showing in various options which Shalini is rejecting. and Dharam has also booked the pool to whom Shalini's mother is asking various questions and his visiting card. 
When Dharam's destination arrives he says instead of you if Shalini calls me it would be better...and the advertisements ends with a beautiful smile.

Life is full of surprises - and you never know who you'll meet next! On your next uberPOOL ride - you could bump into your next boss, your next investor, or even your new best friend.

But In the youtube video there is a comment which reads as What if Dharam turns out to be a stalker and troubles Shalini's life instead? :D

And another comment reads as Agar agle 2 ride me meri girlfriend nahi bani to uber driver aur uber ki *** *****.

Although the ad honestly tries to capitalise on the strangers and surprises but there are some nasty surprises also.

Wild Tales (2014) Relatos salvajes (original title) Review.

Wild Tales (2014)  Relatos salvajes (original title)

This film is about Six short stories  "Pasternak" "The Rats" "The Strongest" "Little Bomb" "The Proposal" "Until Death Do Us Apart The wedding" that explore the extremities of human behavior involving people in a difficult situation. Some parts are short while others are a little long but each and every part will keep you curious and excited throughout the movie.

The starting part starts the tone for the movie in an airplane where a model & music critic kind of flirt with each other and while doing so they found out that they know a person named Pasternak both. The model's ex-lover and the critics who skrewed his work. Also others join in who have been associated with Pasternak in the past, his school teacher, friends who bullied him, his friend who stole his girlfriend etc. What will happen ?

This is the start of the movie, Welcome to Wild Tales.

The other parts The rats set up in a cafe will showcase the reaction of an old woman. A girl whose family has been harassed by the loan shark. The loan shark visits the cafe in am rainy afternoon and Wild Tales. What Will happen ? Welcome to Wild Tales.

The Strongest will showcase an incident of roadrage and both the drivers reaction to it. What Will happen ? Welcome to Wild Tales.

Little Bomb is my favourite in the Wild tales saga. How an ordinary citizen rises above the harassment done by civic authorities and will he be able to take revenge ?  Welcome to Wild Tales.

The proposal is also well made showcasing the greed of human when one person is in distress. Will the rich man succumbs to the greed of the police and lawyer ?  Welcome to Wild Tales.

The last part is the longest with some excitement one can imagine. In a big fat wedding the brie finds that the groom has cheated with her ? And the girl is a guest in the wedding. What will the bride do ? will she break the marriage off ?
What Will happen ? Welcome to Wild Tales.

Tokyo Story (1953) Review.

Tokyo Story (1953) Tôkyô monogatari (original title)

Director: Yasujirô Ozu

Chishû Ryû as Shukichi Hirayama
Chieko Higashiyama as Tomi Hirayama
Setsuko Hara as Noriko Hirayama

An old couple visit their children in Tokyo to have some moments of togetherness. Will their children welcome them with open heart and take care of as it should be ? Sometimes. As every village folks The Hirayama wants to visit Tokyo where his Doctor Son, Stylist Daughter and widow daughter in law lives/work. But after reaching they show the bustling, crowded and polluted Tokyo the biggest surprise was that his own children and grandchildren dont have time for them. on the other hand the widow daughter in law with her meagre income and tight schedule tries to her best for the old couple. The children books a cheap hotel with hot spring bath for their parents, but due to high music, booze and young crowd this also went horrible for the Hirayamas, so much so that they plan to return to their village. What happen in the last ? watch the movie to find out. One thing I like about the Hirayamas that the oold couple always had the jolly face even if they have nowhere to go, both were a pillar of strength and support for each other,

Some movies are so hard hitting that they force you to think. Well Tokyo Story is one such movie, It makes you to sit and think what you are doing for your parents ? is it enough ?

Or as Noriko put it out "as children get older, they drift away from their parents"

Just think and watch the masterpiece by Yasujirô Ozu

My Score- 9 out of 10

Chhote Kadam for a healthy heart.

India has one of the highest number of heart patients in the world and the number is keeping increasing with time. The main reason behind this increasing number is hectic schedules in the workplace, commuting and sedentary lifestyles due to resulting time crunch. India has a whopping 30 Million heart patients, Of the 30 million heart patients, 14 million reside in urban areas and 16 million in rural areas. Although the ration of urban population to rural population is 1 :2, but when it comes to heart disease the ratio surprisingly becomes 1:2.
So from this very simple ratio we may attribute the heart problems to urban areas than the rural areas. As said earlier the urban life has its own challenges which comes along with the amenities. The open space problem, the green cover problem, the polluted air all add to the problem. Coupled with the hectic schedules and sedentary lifestyles act as the straw that broke the camels back.

So how to overcome these problems for a better & healthy heart ? There are somethings which are under our control and there are some factor which are not. Its our #ChhoteKadam, like  Staying Active, Eating Better and Being Happy.

Eating Better- Again in the busy schedules and deadlines we mostly ignore a good balanced diet. And rely on fast food, oily foods etc for mitigating the hunger.
