How internet killed personal style

Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Style is a very personal thing. You either have it or you don't. Well, whoever came up with that line didn't foresee a world with internet and a little thing called google.

"Within minutes, before their eyes Ashoke and Ashima slip into bolder, less complicated versions of themselves, their voices louder, their smiles wider, revealing a confidence Gogol and Sonia never see on Pemberton Road." - The Namesake, Jhumpa Lahiri

Six Degrees of Bollywood

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

Facebook has made all of us aware of the six degrees of seperation that exists. That awkward moment when you add someone and realize there is a common friend between you. yeah, THAT! There is even a parlor game called Six degrees of Kevin Bacon. You are supposed to connect any individual in Hollywood to Kevin Bacon within six steps. Closer home, in Bollywood, that would be equivalent to Six Degrees of Amitabh Bachchan maybe?

I decided to put my Bollywood skills to test and connect two people based on relationships.
