Sachin ban gaya Fillum Writer

Bollywood sighs with relief. At last, the young and upcoming director Salil has finished his first directorial venture. Running to thunderous applause and critical acclaim in packed cinema houses and film festivals across the country, I can proudly say the film is based, albeit loosely, on my story

For those of you unable to wait for this classic to come to a theatre near you, shout "3 cheers to Youtube" and wade in.

P.S: This post is more than 4 months late. Just so you know, I became famous a lot earlier than you people think ;)

Oru Gulf Katha

After a long break , I am back to the world of blogging. Let me warn
you however, that unlike Adoor Gopalakrishnan, a long break in my case
does not necessarily guarantee a classic. Quite a lot of water has
flown down Mahe puzha since I last graced blogworld with words
from my immensively creative literary mind. ( Thank God for small
mercies - the passage of time has brought forth no reduction in the
swelling of the head ).

Last time I wrote , I was in Bangalore. The times - they have a
changed and now I am in that parudeesa of all true blood
Malayalees - the Gulf. To be more precise - Qatar , that blessed
sunlit land , where the only thing you see on all sides is sand, sand
and still more sand , and nary a drop of thirst quencher except good
old H2O.

In the hotel room, I was browsing through the various TV channels and
what do I see on Star Plus but an ad for that magnus opum - Kyunki
Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thhi
. Mock me not, when I declare these guys
deserve an award or something. Its been so long and still Saas
Abhi Tak Mari Nahin
. Ramanand Sagar ji , this is the
original epic.

Lets keep this post short and sweet. Its more a reminder to myself of
the bunch of desparate people out there waiting with bated breath for
my next post. Rest assured guys, your prayers havent fallen on deaf

As 21st century Robert Browning would say:
Sachin's writing posts again
God's in his heaven
All's right with the world
