One should never ignore the "sometimes I have this feeling" moments. Such instances rather warrant deep attention from your being, because those generally strike your mind when you are peaceful - the surrounding is serene, after a sumptuous weekend meal, in a still night, or most often when you are in the restroom. And, you would … Continue reading Toilet cleaning, Bollywood & Blogging!
There was recently a beautiful post in FB (see below) about Mouna Raagam turning 30. This was incidentally from The Hindu, which has been providing good coverage around this anniversary, recently adorned by a beautiful interview with Revathi on their news site.
