Wanted to pen down my thoughts on some recent incidents:
- The debate on Ash's weight is still on and my view is that she needs to lose it. It is a common trend for celebrities mom to get into shape few months into giving birth. It is also a recent trend among common (high society) people. 2 weeks back I had to spend hours in one mall. I killed time by people watching. There was some kid's b'day party and many moms were leaving with their kids and maids in tow. All of them were in shape and looked like the kids' older sisters. It takes effort to get into shape and if Ash with access to the best gyms and dietitians cannot do it, who can? Cannes was the perfect time to show her new self and she turned up like a fat cow. She is termed the "Most Beautiful woman in the world" and has no business looking like that... with the double chin and love handles. Look at Lara Dutta and Malaika Arora... and Victoria Beckham. C'mon.
- I do not understand the recent trend of star kids losing oodles of weight to join movies... Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha and Arjun Kapoor. Sonam and Arjun looked good but Sonakshi is fat and ugly. There are so many naturally thin and young people waiting in line to get a break. Have the producers lost their heads?
- Arushi murder case is still going on. This is a very significant case 'coz it first came up when I was in Gurgaon in 2008. I remember a colleague from Noida mentioning in office that her relatives know the Talwars and they are being accused un-necessarily. That they are very respectable people and can never hurt their daughter. I believed it but the recent court judgement has made me change my mind. The only defence the Talwars have is that they are parents and can never harm their daughter. Honor killings are very common in the North and so it is highly possible that the Talwars harmed their daughter. I just hope the case is resolved soon and whoever is the killer is put behind bars.
- KC was a little worried about the Bandh today. I assured him that it will not affect Gurgaon 'coz there has to be public transport for BJP to put a stop on. Everyone travels in their own cars or private cars. They cannot be stopped.
There was more but I am forgetting. Will update as soon as I remember.
