Things on the Internet That Made Me Smile: Amitabh Tweet, Sneezing Cat, Alia Moved Back in with Shaheen and Got a Cat, Varun Weight Lifting His Niece

Internet things! Including a broad definition to mean also “the video my co-worker sent of her kitten sneezing”.

Okay, this Amitabh tweet made me laugh and laugh, but that might just be because my brain squirreled it around funny. Amitabh just wanted to do one of his Grandpa-like “here’s an interesting fact” posts. But read this description of the meaning of the name “Vivek”, and then think about our Vivek (or “Viviek”). Could there be anything LESS accurate?

My co-workers kitten has a cold

Big news! Alia got a cat! Even bigger news, looks like she is no longer co-habiting with Ranbir and has moved in with Shaheen. Maybe break-up, maybe no break-up, maybe Ranbir moved in with his Mom after his Dad died, maybe Alia and Shaheen just wanted some time together, who knows. But in my very superficial “I am aware this is none of my business” kind of way, I am happier knowing that Alia and Shaheen and their cat are living together again.

Oh, and Varun is reduced to weight lifting by lifting his niece, who looks not super thrilled. In fact, this whole picture has a bit of a “she’s been crying and sad for three hours, we are all exhausted, maybe we try this to distract her” look to it.

    • Especially without any professional assistance! (I assume). She also continues to look like a kitten to me, which means her now having a kitten herself is confusing.


  1. Alia’s cat looks exactly like Shilpa Shetty’s sister – Shamita’s – cat and coincidently they got them at the same time. So there was a cute exchange between Alia and Shilpa about whether the cats were twins.

    Also, saw Amitabh’s tweet about how relieved he was that Aishwarya and Aaradhya have been released from the hospital and it made me smile. He was so relieved that he cried … awww. It was in Hindi so now sure if you saw it.


    • I saw the tweet, but I had to rely on google translate so I wasn’t sure if I read it correctly. So glad they are back home!

      Maybe Shamita and Alia both got black cats because black cats are supposed to be harder to get adopted? My cat-lover friends all have black cats as a badge of honor because it’s, like, DOUBLE saving a life. Or because they are witches, I don’t know for sure.

  2. Normally I don’t see it, but from some angles like this one Alia looks so much like young Soni Razdan! She also put up a cute baby picture –

    Her nickname Aloo (meaning potato) really fits her as a baby coz she looked so squishy lol!

    I can’t find it now, but there’s a video of a cat bobbing its head to ‘O Humdum Suniyo Re’ floating around somewhere which had me grinning!


    • Yes, Alia looks so much like her Mom in this photo! Which I find interesting because I think of Soni having this immediate mature beauty, like she was born looking 40. And Alia of course usually looks about 10 years old. fascinating how almost the same face can feel so different.
