Star Movies Secret Screening - II

Image
It would have been an ordinary day,
But waking up to an invite to another Secret Screening by Star Movies just made my day.



After a huge success of the earlier Secret Screening, there were numerous people who wanted to witness the next Secret Screening. Star Movies has definitely been the trendsetter here.
Being a part of earlier screening and a fan of it, I was very excited for this one too.
(Star Movies Secret Screening - I)

On the evening of December 3rd, the whole clan of 'Secret Keepers' was there to witness this little secret.

Many of them had placed their bets on what movie they'd showcase. Since I lost in the earlier season, I decided not to bet this time.

On entering, we were given the Secret Screening Masks, along with coupons which enabled us to hog on food.



After a little wait, and endless guessing, It started :

This time, the movie was :
EXODUS : GODS AND KINGS
Directed By :Ridley Scott
Star Cast :  Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Ben K…

Are the deceased really dead?

No one is born to live for ever. There is always a time when they have to part ways with us.
It hurts a lot to know that the person you love so much is no more alive to love you back, or at least acknowledge your love.
Birth and death have proved to be a significant part of our lives. Loosing the ones who gave birth to you seems like they've left us halfway and left.
Questions! Questions are all that is left behind!
"Weren't they supposed to be with me all the time?"
"Why did this happen to us? We were a perfect family"
The other side of the coin?
It hurts even more to know that the little kiddo is no more. Clearly, we never grow old for them. Its like they loose a part of them, as we are born out of them.
The feeling of loneliness strikes hard when your soulmate leaves.
Some wish to leave with them, some wish to leave before the other so that they dont have to go through all the pain or the suffering of being alone, of being without their other half.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S

Remember the time when you finished watching all the seasons of a television show and then didn’t know what to do with your life?
Well, I’m in the same boat right now.

Last night, I finished off with all the 10 seasons of American TV show, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. No, That’s not the reason why I’m back to blogging again, I just want to write down what I’m feeling now. This was the very 1st TV show that I started watching, and now I think what in the world kept me away from watching it earlier?

I loved the show right from the Episode 1. Not all shows start with a wet bride rushing in through the door, and then decide to figure her life out. I used to finish all of my pending stuffs and targets for the day and then end the day with episodes of Friends! I loved them even more with each passing episode.

At times, in our silent bedroom, where I and my sister used to sit and do our individual works (She doing serious work and I used to watch Friends); I'd suddenly start laughing because of Chandler'…

Star Movies Secret Screening!

Star Movies Secret Screening! Sounds spooky, isn't it?

It was up and gaining popularity when the official twitter handle of STAR MOVIES mentioned about it!
When it was running on their website, it seemed inexplicable, just exactly how they wanted it to seem.

On their website, there was a dark entrance door, and through the glass of the door, all we could see was an elevator with glowing lights.

A part of it said :



The entry through the door was only possible via a secret code. Everyone wanted to get in! And thus, requested for the secret code through their twitter profiles.

It was followed by a couple of days of waiting.

While the hashtag #StarMoviesSecretScreening was trending and fetching huge number of tweets!


.@HukkaKing1 Waiting list is not bad news. It means some good is gonna happen soon..Be positive.

People were curious to know what it was.

It was when the applicants started receiving codes to open the secret door, that the thing…

The Aquarium Lounge, Delhi

When you have an unforgettable dining experience at a place, It needs to be appreciated.
The Aquarium Lounge, GK is one of those experiences that I've had.


Having situated at a very posh area, i.e M Block Market, GK; The Aquarium Lounge is nicely built. Every corner of the place has something which will amaze you and obviously, every single thing relates to the aquatic life. A big aquarium is built under the counter near bar and is truly amazing! Oh, by the way, they have a huge bar place, and keep almost every kind of alcohol in store. (Yes, I saw the place where they store them)


Haven taken quite a long time to choose what to order, we finally decided. Reason for such a long time? - Varied Cuisines; American, Mexican, Thai, Italian, Lebanese, Indian are what they serve. From Seafood to Steaks, you'd find it all :)



Finally we decided on Goong Yang Ha Rod from the THAI section, which is a prawn’s dish! And the LEBANESE Chicken dish, Shish Barak! Both of them arrived in some …

The Haunted Diaries!

Stories of ghosts and abnormal activities interests some, whereas they manage to capture someone's weak nerves. 
This time, I'm here with a list of those haunted places in India whose legendary stories sent chills down my spine.  1. Brij Raj Bhavan palace, RajasthanThe Brij Raj Bhavan Palace belonged to the former princely family of Kota, Rajasthan. The reason why it is termed as ‘haunted’ is; when in 1980s, the palace was converted into a rich heritage hotel; the resident ghost of the palace became the ghost of the hotel too. While serving as a British Resident to Kota, a major named Major Charles Burton was killed by the Indian sepoys in the hall of the building. Post Independence, the mansion became the private property of the Maharaja of Kota.


During his (Major Burton) night patrols, if at all he finds a watchmen asleep, then a voice is heard by the half asleep watchmen saying, "Don’t sleep, no smoking" followed by a sharp slap.
The fact that the ghost of Major Burton …
