DAY 3441

Jalsa, Mumbai                   Aug 29,  2017                 Tue 11:37 PM

Lashing rains throughout the day .. winds of very high velocity .. streets and roads flooded and water logged .. and the shoot for the Ad., continues unabated and unconcerned .. until .. they step out to find they left their swimming trunks at home ..

It has been a traumatic experience for many .. especially they that live and dwell by the street pavements .. those that live in places of congested poverty  .. those that have never seen or heard of shelters their entire lives .. they are the common man in this flourishing metropolis .. and they are the ones along with the Mumbai Police that have saved so many and rendered help and assistance to them that have been stranded on roads, hungry wet and away from home ..

Many extend voluntary help and assistance .. concern and connect to them that have strayed distance .. in all a most noble and praiseworthy deed done for the populace of our great Nation ..

Long may the spirit of this great city ever live and more …

I work at Mehboob studio for my shoot and find myself isolated from the rest of the connect .. the waters rise and threaten to invade the floors .. they have done so in my office and home .. BUT thank fully the rains have evaded further occurrence and the city continues its life, albeit in an eerie silence .. but done all the same .. a city that refuses to give up and perish .. it stands up tall and filled with pride at each turn ..

The Mumbaikar is an exalted individual .. straight, strong and with fight .. it shall be felled, by strokes of fortune adversely .. but it shall stand erect and proud, each time .. 

In the incredible lashings of rain he stands there at vantage points warning and controlling traffic .. guiding those stranded to places of shelter, offering hot drinks and food and to some a place to rest for the night, in case they be stranded ..

Loads of praise then is due to our Police force, for conducting themselves in a manner that has only helped the suffering and the disabled .. filled with pride I admire the spirit of them that have stood by and given succour to the devastated .. they then are the true Mumbaikars .. and long may they live ..

.. and as I prepare to leave the studio and pull out my ‘outboard motor to sail into the flooded pathways’ I am pulled aside by dear friend and ace photographer Avinash Gowarikar, to the historic stairway at the Mehboob Studio, that has led many a great to the recording floor .. songs and directors, creators and legendary artists have lent their name and worth to these steps .. and asked to climb them .. !!

I oblige ..

many a climb has been undertaken on these .. to film to sing to record historic music .. and now interviews - for that is what is left of this space !

BUT it never was in this condition before .. as I educate the ace AG .. it used to run at 90 degrees to this present state .. it was open roofed and it opened into the main floor of the recording theatre ..

In 1968-69 I had climbed up here to give audience to Sunil Dutt .. seeking a job .. he was dubbing here for ‘Padosan’ that iconic film .. then of course there have been such incredible moments within those portals, it shall be difficult to describe .. but the one that comes to mind is the first song I ever sang for film - ‘mere paas aao, mere doston ek kissa suno’ for Mr Natwarlal and the most accomplished sound recordist of the time Ghosh da , had, after listening to me advised me : “ you should sing more often”  

The huge floor housed the legions of musicians , at times over a 100 of them, when sound recordings were done live in one stroke .. no digital manoeuvring and no space for error .. 

Now with the advent of modern technology, the floor has been used for TV programmes, interviews and such like .. where masters like Laxmikant Pyarelal and Rafi saheb and Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle and o so many greats all produced the music that has lasted for years and shall last for years to come, the air has now been replaced with none of those memorable moments ..

Time, space, circumstances, deplete the very core of our living .. and regenerate it too .. at times with equal proportion, at times not …

It has begun to pour again .. 

May those that have been affected adversely find solace and peace and well being .. I pray for their well being ..

nickandch33se  asked:

What are your opinions on the Adventure games from a critical standpoint? It's obvious that you like going through them and finding unused content but do you genuinely enjoy playing through them?

I could go all day about positive aspects of the games and why I find them good so I’m just going to address what I see as the negatives of the games.

The problems I see with them are:

  • Camera
  • Collision
  • Game Design
  • Localisation
  • Development Time
  • Port Quality

I’m going to explain each of these, because I see a lot of people complaining about the games these days and then not knowing what they’re supposed to be talking about when asked to go into more detail.

for day four of the teen wolf rarepair countdown: favourite rarepair AU.

I love Christmas/winter AUs, so I combined that with a couple of other favourites: college AU, diner AU and meet-cute.  



It’s official.  Stiles’ day sucks.

The girl behind the counter is giving him a blank, unimpressed stare as he does some kind of stupid dance, patting down all of his pockets to try and find his wallet. Except all of them are empty, because he apparently managed to leave his wallet at home like a total idiot.  When it becomes obvious that his wallet isn’t just going to miraculously appear, he starts digging into his pockets for loose change, literally turning the pockets of his jeans inside out in his effort.

A lone quarter rattles onto the counter, spinning wildly before Stiles quickly slaps a palm over it to stop it, offering a sheepish smile.  

The girl pops her gum before repeating, blandly, “Two dollars.”

“I know, yeah, I just – give me a sec,” Stiles wriggles a hand into a hole in the lining of his coat, sure there must be some loose change somewhere, and if the ground could just open up and swallow him whole right about now, that would be great.  

Two dollar bills slide onto the counter next to Stiles’ miserable looking quarter.  He pauses, looking up at the girl now standing next to him, and she offers him a warm smile that lights up her dark eyes.

You woke up this morning raindrops falling against the window. 

‘’Same dream… it’s the same thing over and over again.’’ puzzled by your repeating dream you slowly climbed out of bed rubbing your eyes. This was the 6th time this week. You poured the coffee into your cup hoping it would wake you up, your cat jumped up on the dining table begging for attention. ‘’I know I know I’ll feed you in a minute fluffy.’’ You answered waving your hand at Fluffy. The cat in your dreams look nothing like Fluffy. Fluffy was black and fat, while the cat in your dreams were a calico, stoic creature who moved gracefully over the white floor. Fluffy looked at you pissed over the fact that you had yet to feed him, he had been waiting a whole minute now! You made your way over to his cat bowl and picked it up. Next to it lied Fluffys bright red ball, another thing that made you even sure that it wasn’t fluffy. The ball in your dream was yellow, Fluffy hated yellow. You on the other hand quite liked the color.
Your morning went on just as it did any other day. Getting dressed, going to school, nothing out of the ordinary.

“Is anybody there?” Dean wondered as he entered the animal shelter, the hot air from the inside making his fingertips burn as they thawed.

The weather was terrible that day, the blizzard outside making it almost impossible to see anything, but Dean was determined to get Sam, his little brother, a perfect present for Christmas. Sam had been asking their parents for a puppy since he was a toddler, to the point they were beyond annoyed with it. Still, they secretly agreed when Dean asked them and gave him permission to choose the puppy.

That’s how he found himself in an animal shelter, as he didn’t want to just buy a dog. He preferred to choose a puppy that nobody wanted. His goal was to give this puppy a present as well, the present being the sweetest owner it would ever see.

“Hello?” Dean repeated, taking off his jacket and hanging it near the door.

It’s days like today when Bellamy really regrets his decision to not own a car.

To be fair, his regret is not limited to days like today, when the sky breaks out in a spontaneous thunderstorm, when he has foregone his umbrella, when every passing vehicle makes him shrink away for fear that they’ll hit the gutter puddles just right and spray dirty water all over his work clothes. He’s also regretful on days when the bus makes him late to work, when it’s unreasonably cold or unbearably hot outside, when he’s had it up to here with strangers being in his personal space.

At the end of the day, the extra cash in his bank account outweighs the convenience of having a car (which, considering city parking availability, is not that convenient anyway). But it is one of those days, and Bellamy has forgotten his umbrella, and a car did spray him, so he’s not in the right frame of mind to remember why selling his car was a good thing.

So if

Vale = valley area?? = dark = needs light = Signal & Beacon (big signal)

Mistral = probably has been through a lot of disasters?? = needs safety = Sanctum & Haven (big sanctum)

Vacuo = desert area?? = hot = needs shelter = ????? + Shade (big… what?? what’s a smaller version of shade???)

Soooo I’m guessing Atlas has a warmth-themed academy name, cuz it’s cold up there…??

Herb of the Week-Saffron



Saffron, also known as Crocus sativus, is a plant that grows from a bulb and belongs to the family of Sword Lily. This is actually a spice with an intense aroma and is used extensively in a variety of cuisines. In fact, saffron is among the most expensive spices available.

This yellowish spice is obtained from the blooms of the species called Crocus sativus, which is widely called saffron crocus, The saffron crocus plant grows up to a height of anything between 20 cm and 30 cm and each plant produces a maximum of about four flowers. Each flower of this species has three bright crimson stigmas that are located far away from the point of attachment of a carpel. In conjunction with the stalks or styles which are connected to the stigmas to the plant hosting them, the dried out stigmas are mostly used in a variety of cuisines in the form of a seasoning as well as coloring agent.

Baby You’re A (Porn)Star

“Is it weird that I kind of want to watch us having sex?” Niall asks nonchalantly one morning, and Harry chokes on his cereal. “I mean, it’d be hot, right?”

Give Me Shelter

‘‘Look up baby, be pretty as always.‘‘ Niall heard his Master whisper behind him, and he looked up at all the men that were standing in front of him. They were in a tent in Las Vegas, Niall cuffed and standing in front of a group of men, who were willing to buy him. Just the question was, who would give the most for the precious blue- eyed and blond- haired boy? ‘’Wow, he’s really beautiful,’’ a man said. ‘’Is he good too?’’

In The Bathroom Stall
In school hate sex after a fight
Naughty Texting
It was any normal day, hot and boring. Niall was bored, sitting on the couch. He was alone, all of his friends were busy as usual. Why doesn’t anyone ever want to hang out with him? He thought it was because he was gay but it couldn’t possibly be that. Niall decieded to text one of his old mates, Harry. They haven’t spoken in ages and Niall was wondering how he was doing.
