Happy St. Patrick’s Day! The Few Irish-India Connections I Can Think of!

(This is a re-posted post from last year, because I am lazy.) There really aren’t as many connections between Ireland and India as you would expect.  They both start with “I”?  They are both former British colonies?  Their flags are confusingly similar?  The both have disputed territories to the north? But what few connections I could remember, I have pulled up and highlighted, on this, the ridiculous made-up unofficial international Ireland celebration day.

Happy Salman Week! Ek Tha Tiger Before Tiger Zinda Hai

I saw this movie 3 times in theaters, mostly because I wanted to watch the Jab Tak Hain Jaan teaser over and over again.  But also for itself, it’s a very well-made fun movie.  I forgot just how well made and fun until I re-watched it just now.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! All the Irish-Indian Connections I Can Think Of!

(This is a re-posted post from last year, because I am lazy.  And also there really isn’t anything to add to Irish-Indian connections in the past year) There really aren’t as many connections between Ireland and India as you would expect.  They both start with “I”?  They are both former British colonies?  Their flags are confusingly similar?  The both have disputed territories to the north?

A little Salman love

I feel like with all the SRK coverage lately, I haven’t been paying enough attention to Salman.  And terrible terrible things happen when Salman feels like he is being ignored.  Plus, he did just escape from 15 years in prison, he needs to be celebrated!  And he also just made the list of sexiest Asian men (that kid from One Direction is on top, Hrithik is second, SRK is 9, Aamir didn’t make it).

So, yesterday I posted about what a great business man SRK is.  Salman just doesn’t seem that interested in business, but I think he probably has quite the natural knack for it, in his own totally nutso way.
