It is about time we knew Samir, the person. Rangmunch.TV: One thing you are grateful for in life. Samir Sharma: Life itself! (Smiles) Rangmunch.TV: One thing that is missing in your life at this moment? Samir Sharma: What I miss most right now is travel. I love to drive on highways and travel and see the world. Unfortunately, in this profession one doesn’t get to do that. But, we do travel when the show requires. Added to that, I would love to do a travel food show .

Child's work or Child's Play?:Food For Thought

Image
It was in college that I had read about the micro-economic theory of utility which talks about decision making with regards to the choices you make for better a life style. Basically from what I remember and what my professor had explained, the gist of the theory goes on to explain how parents spend money on children as a means of investment, and hence their education and their other needs, with the belief and presumption that they will take care of them later on in life and repay it  . Before you sleep off, let me get into why I have picked up this heavy dosed discussion today.  This theory however doesnt go down too well with our Indian sensibilities where, we have been told from time immemorial that the only love in the world that's unconditional is that of parents and children. But what if, instead of the parents it is the children who become their source of earnings? Sounds in-human isnt it? Well, it does the way it has been presented atleast! But is it that bad? Think abou

The Resurrection of HUM: Maaneet !!!

Image
Today’s episode left me with mixed emotions. I was overwhelmed since after a very long time I saw Maaneet for almost 15 minutes and the entire episode was nothing less than a visual treat. However the news of the show coming to an end and the idea of not seeing Maaneet on-screen at some point in time did dampen my spirit for a while. However I could not hold myself back from penning down my thoughts about the episode that left me spell bound.                       “Geet kaalash ko gira kar ek baar phir meri zindagi mein pravesh karo”   Geet’s patience and perseverance paid off today. These words from Maan put an end to Geet’s desolation. She finally won her love, her Maan and for us “HUM” is back. Apparently for me it was more of Geet’s victory than Maan’s. Earlier whenever Geet came across any difficulty, she always had Maan to fall back on. However, this time around destiny played cruel and not only took away Maan who was her pillar of strength, but brought him back as a challen

Arnav Singh Raizada...A Vulnerable Man with an Iron Mask !!

Image
“You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.” ~ Johnny Depp. In the last few episodes, Arnav’s vulnerability completely moved me and yesterday I could not stop the tears from flowing down my eyes. One could see the pain in Arnav’s eyes not only because of the guilt that he was undergoing for what he said to Khushi but also because that is so not him. Arnav is a man with a golden heart, but the flashes from his past gives us a hint that he is a bruised soul. Incidents from his past may have forced him to hide behind a mask, as he believes that portrayal of emotions is a sign of weakness. Under no circumstances will he allow the world to know the real him or play with his emotions. However, Khushi Kumari Gupta from the very beginning had unknowingly stirred all these emotions in Arnav, which he thought he had buried over the years. How much ever he tried to remain unaffected by her presence,

Fida's Corner: His Wife, Mrs. Khurana!!! (Chapter 18))

Image
Chapter 18 He woke in the morning to the feel of her lips on his but as he noticed the space she had made between them; he knew that he must have dreamt it. She smiled, obviously a little uncomfortable, then said simply “Maan, thank you” With the situation between them still so tentative, he wasn’t sure exactly what to say- should he reassure her that she had every right to expect his support, or should he stake his claim and say that it was his right to be there for her whenever she needed him.  He could hardly tell her that he had enjoyed the feeling of being needed- he didn’t want her to have the impression that he preferred her weak and helpless when the truth was he had fallen for her sherni avatar. Deciding that silence was the best option, he smiled briefly, then got up.  Picking up his phone, he pretended to check his messages whilst surreptitiously casting glances at his wife, trying to gauge whether she was feeling better.  After deciding that she did indeed look bett
