After a really long, long and so long wait, this day became my d-day for watching the real cute, hot, sexy and damn beautiful Deepika Padukone in her first film venture and that too in namma kannada - Aishwarya!Indrajith Lankesh has done an amazing job by adorning this doll called Deepika in the most possible beautiful way that anyone can expect! The film is good with ok storyline but full of colours thru out the movie and the most watched person is of course Deepika and namma Uppi dada..the genious Upendra and yeah, I also liked the bubbly character of Daisy Bopanna - very cute girl!! Deepika is no wonder the next Aishwarya Rai. Really hats off to that god who created this wonderful beauty called Deepika - really beauty blessed girl!! Proud to say that she is from namma bengalooru and kannada girl...Hope I can someday meet this beauty! :)

We had organized (money and idea pooled by us!) one-day event called 'Parichaya' (meaning, Introduction) and I was one of the members of the organizing committee! As the name indicates, we intended to give our fellow friends a Parichaya to Kannada language and Karnataka history, wealth and values! It was a roaring success!!! We had not expected so much crowd to visit us and get 'introduced' but as the day progressed, we were flattered to see the number! People stood in queue patiently to visit the event and this was the most surprising thing of the day! We had arranged lot of poster presentation, indicating the richness of Kannada and Karnataka - right from Poets to Tourism to Foods!

GUFA mei khana!

Yesterday, one of my close cousins and me planned 2 have lunch...we were meeting after a very long time and thought it will be good meet for lunch! So, after some thoughts, we zeroed in on a place in Jayanagar 3rd Block...a new hotel called 'Hotel President'! This new hotel has come up in the Elephant Rock Road and the good thing about this hotel is that we have different 'sub-hotels' in this building to choose from! So, we chose a place called GUFA (Den in english), which is in 5th floor of this building! As the name suggests, GUFA interiors is so well modelled that it lives upto its name! All wooden interiors to give a den-like look, candle-torches in the place of bright lights and wooden table/chair for seating and much more...Boy, they have invested good amount in this and it is simply good! Zara hatke from the rest! :) The lunch was good where we spoke lots, different topics, remembering our good old days too...stayed there for around 2hrs and wrapped up our lunch! …
