Culinary Catastrophe

My mom wasn’t feeling too well the other day, so my dad and I decided to make upma for dinner to take the load off her. Well, it was mostly me, with my dad helping with the cutting of the vegetables and stuff.

I was getting all huffy with him because I felt that the onions weren’t cut in uniform sizes (the smaller ones burn while the bigger ones remain uncooked, you know) and he was bowing to my superior culinary skills…it was all going swimmingly.

Until the moment when my mother put the first forkful of the upma into her mouth. She gave me this really odd look, and said, ‘Where did you get the rava for this?’

It turns out I’d used idli rava instead of upma rava.



‘Om Shanti Om’

Is the heroine (Deepika Padukonde, according to Anuj on Radio City) the same woman who is the model for Parachute’s ‘Gorgeous Hamesha’ ad? And also the old, old, Parachute ‘One hour champi’ ad? Or are my eyes deceiving me?


‘Shalimar the Clown’

Is too depressing to review right now. More later.
