Coffee With Mi Vidya Sury

I advertised on a couple of sites to sell our washing machine and “bedset” as they call a cot and mattress, Mi. I am totally in the space-making mode now. Contrary to the belief that everything goes like “hot cakes” there, the enquiries were few and far between. Except one,...


Time and Again

Time and Again Coffee With Mi Vidya Sury

And yet again, we watched Waqt, one of the better films that keeps getting aired on TV, Mi. Of course, our theory is that the disc is right on top of the pile and they’re too lazy to actually plan what to show…but we don’t ┬ámind. It is better than...
