    So much has been written and said about Sridevi on her death by those who knew her a lot better than me that it feels foolish to write about her now. And yet I am going ahead and writing a bit about her since I think I have at least some new things to say:

    1. My favorite television anchor is Karan Thapar and it will always be my regret that he never did an interview with Sridevi.

    2. As far as I am concerned, Sridevi is the greatest actress I have seen in Indian cinema. (The only weakness in her acting, so far as Hindi movies are concerned, was her weak pronunciation. I am...

    Blue Eyes was telling me today about her niece. This is the eldest daughter of her brother. The girl's mother has now divorced from Blue's brother. The girl is intelligent according to Blue Eyes, but she is not doing good in school and has been placed in 'remedial classes' in school. Her weakest subject seems to be mathematics.

    (will continue writing this blog later)

    Just had an amazing conversation with Blue Eyes. Thought i would write out what she said before i forget the details. Her father was conceived in Germany during the second world war. Her father's mother had met this handsome american soldier and she was madly in love with him. He was the love of her life so to speak. He was, however, already married. When he was returning to the U.S. he told her he would send for her but he never did. He made no efforts to communicate with her, and one or two years later she received the news that he had died. She subsequently met and married another american soldier...

    I was talking to a senior colleague today. She was talking about her daughter's first date. It happened when her daughter was around 15 and the guy she was going out with was 17. When the boyfriend reached their apartment to pick up her daughter my colleague was cutting vegetables. Hence, when he entered the apartment my colleague had a knife in her hand and while still holding the knife she told him: 'if you touch her, i will kill you'. The guy later told her daughter that while her dad was pretty cool about him taking her out her mom was positively scary. 

    The senior colleague told...

    Her parents are both very eminent, highly intelligent professionals who are also both intellectuals; they work in science related fields. She grew up having eclectic interests. She liked the sciences, but she also liked the arts. Like her parents. She finally decided to pursue arts, and got a degree in art history from a top college. She then started working in an art gallery. It was not high paying work, but there was work satisfaction. All was going well, and then something peculiar happened. She had a psychotic breakdown. There were some events leading up to it. One of her best friends had committed...

    His parents separated when he was young, and he found while his stepmom was kind to him, his stepdad did not like to have him around his house and would actually beat him every now and then. He would start crying whenever his father would drop him off to where his mother lived with his stepdad. Eventually he stopped going to see his mother altogether and started calling his stepmom 'Mother'. He was a wonderfully skilled baseball player and won sports scholarships from various colleges. But he wanted to 'chill' for some time after high school, and so decided not to accept them. When he applied to...

    He must be around 45 or so. One of the nicest people i have met. Pleasant, warm, kind. He has one biological son. Out of a sense of social service he decided to adopt a child and the adoption center persuaded him to adopt a brother and a sister who were already grown ups (around 12 or so). It turned out the girl he adopted had bipolar disorder, but this was not revealed to him (perhaps the shelter did not know? but surely they would have known that her behavior was not normal). In fact nothing negative about the girl in any way whatsoever was said to him. And so he adopted the brother and sister....

    I am not attracted to her; in general, i am not attracted to caucasian girls. But i have to say her eyes are very beautiful, even dazzling. They are blue, the color of the ocean, and every now and then they sparkle when she is amused or annoyed. She was wearing a ring and at first i thought it was an engagement ring. I knew she had a boyfriend, but was still single. I asked her about it. She said it was a 'Purity Ring'. Her father had put it on her hand in a ceremony in church, and she would return it to him after she got married. The idea behind the Purity Ring is that she would have no sex till...

    I've been having lots of conversations with Blue Eyes about whom i wrote in my previous blog. She is a very nice girl. We were talking today about disciplining children. In her own case she mentioned that when she did something mischievous and her parents got really mad at her they would hit her with a belt on her bottom. Her dad would say 'this hurts me more than it is hurting you' after he had belted her. Her mother would belt her very rarely but when she would do so it would be even harder than the belting she got from her dad. And they would apply soap on her tongue and then make her rinse...
