i have never really paid attention to movie sets as much as i have begun doing now...(meri ankhen khul gayi hain) it started in college when i saw gabbeh and got me more seriously interested when i saw across the universe some time back. two days back i saw mamma mia. i first read about the set design on one of my favourite blogs..designsponge. even though the story was naive...it ofcourse had great music of abba, greek surroundings and fantastic textiles esp. the sheets made out of joseph frank fabrics! so a little bit of research an i have dug out two blogs for you...if you wish to get the look of mamma mia the movie...click here for tips and if you want to find out some more about movies and their sets click here. enjoy!
and thats the no. of posts including this 1 that i have posted so far !! yayeee!! hurray!! cheers!!
i have been collecting a lot of things and images that i want to post about in these past few days but i just haven't found the time. with diwali knocking at the door, my cousin's approaching marriage and Heimtex Fair coming up in january...life at home and at work is totally hectic.
inspite of this i love this time of the year...festivities in the air...random money spending (yeah thats the best part)..exchanging gifts..cleaning up the house in time for diwali puja..family coming together.. everything is so cheerful, happy and busy!!
with everything being so joyous all around is one allowed to be just a bit mean? mean twised with humour ? oh come on now..i'm sure just a little dig is allowed...:)
OK so Outlook, the magazine has begun to publish a miniature short story book idea which comes complimentary with the magazine every now and then. these little books have a couple of short stories in them that make a fun read..like i finished reading it on my way to work in the morning...it was quick and fun . fullstop.
one such miniature book...here take a look...
is called "the princess of kahin nahin" meaning The Princess of Nowhere, by Khushwant Singh.
i loved the colour the size (A6) and most of all the title. this is where the mean part begins. i wish to dedicate this to a woman i know who fits the title absolutely :P. all through the story i could not think of anyone else and i must add that i had little chuckles all through the story knowing that i know this very name dropping, gasbag of a Princess!
ps. this has to be one of my more random posts..
