Used coffee grounds

The next time you make coffee on your machine and take out the grounds from the filter, don't throw it.

2 AM music

You know one of those songs that you listen to, and you don't know how you can ever relate to it, or if you ever can, but you just feel like swaying your hips and your hear to the melody and the voice!?

This is definitely one of them for me.

Its a song from a recent Bollywood release, Ram-Leela. I don't want to get into the story, how much ever I'd love to. But this song is one sensual song. And trust me on this, you can do all your pilates moves on this song.

Here is a video. Do watch it. Even if you don't understand the lyrics, its great eye candy. Both the actors are looking really good!

So, I am sitting here, listening to this song, on repeat, and I think may be others would like it too.

I hope you do!

Thanks for reading,
XO Ayesha.

Ego and its games

Rusty Eric once said, " When you allow your ego to control your thoughts, everything you believe becomes an illusion".

What is ego, why does it play such a big role in our lives?

An ode to handwritten letters

When was the last time you wrote a letter to your loved one? And by wrote, I mean actually use a pen, and fill a paper made from a tree bark with words that matter!

Handwritten letters are losing their charm. People communicate through texts, Whatsapp, facebook, and all the means that can be used over wireless. Of course these means are faster and cheaper than the previous but don't you think when you are writing a letter, there you are putting so much more feelings in there. And, I'm not just saying love letters, although that would be great too. What I'm talking about a letter to your parents, to your friend, or anybody special, something that they can hold while they read it, where they can smell your scent vaguely. That they can keep with them forever.

I love handwritten letters. I feel that if you are writing a letter to me, you are giving a tiny piece of you to me. Some of my friends write mushy letters to me on certain occasions not. I love them.

So the message here that I'm trying to convey is that one should write letters. They are so personal and they convey so much more than an email or a text message. So start writing!

Thanks for reading,
XO Ayesha

Movies by the years


I have silly little hobby.
I like to read celebrity and movies wikipedia pages.
I don't really read everything. But I like going through them.

So, a few things caught my attention while I was going through a couple of pages from the time of wizard of oz and gone with the wind and then psycho and so on.

 The first thing that caught my attention was that how many of these scripts were adapted/copied to make slightly more current movies, even Hindi!
