Yesterday I was walking down the street when I heard a kid demanding a Cadbury to his Mom. Mom replied:
"No Beta, they are full of worms."
Diary Milk used to be the easiest expression of love and friendship for me when I met my buddies. But luckily, I dont like sweets or chocolates much. So i am not missing Diary Milk at all. And I have found alternatives.
And I don't know now what is up with lovers out there, for whom a diary milk resembled a red rose in romantic terms!
But for kids, whose age is to enjoy the thrills of having that magical brown piece, food-pollution has taken over that romance. Parents and kids should have found their alternatives by now or will find soon, let us hope.

Conspiring with Mr. Iyer
Yesterday I met Arvind Iyer for a story I am doing on him. To tell the truth, chatting with Arvind on Yahoo messenger has always been a chaotic affair with this gentleman shooting down long messages non-stop:)
But when I finally met him, he turned out to be a different guy. On chat, he used to be very informal with me. But during our meet, i felt him keeping a studied distance and giving me a highly consistent speech.
I enjoyed the meet really and now wanna come up with a good story:)

Precious Silence during Diwali
I had a very quiet Diwali on Saturday, in solitude. But sunday was different. Had a damn good get-together with my x room mates. We re-lived our days - cooking, roaming, watching a cricket match together etc.. etc.!
That made me acknowledging the fact that living in a group has it's own highs when compared to living in isolation as I have been doing recently. But I have not thought of going back . Just decided that, once in a while I would have a deviation.
Adding flavour to the Diwali celebrations, we had this news of an Indian win from Gwalior. Sachin had a 100, but as A put it, after 90 he was clearly playing for his hundred. Very sad to note such a great player slowing down his innings when a 100 was in sight!
