Don’t Breathe

Interesting film. Well paced. Enjoyed watching this one.

Not happy with the way it ended though. In my view, Rocky (Jane Levy) should’ve died (at least).

Shaikh Saahab Se Rasm-O-Raah Na Ki

Faiz Ahmed Faiz…

Shaikh saahab se rasm-o-raah na ki
Shukr hai zindagi tabaah na ki

Tujh ko dekha tou ser-e-chashm hue
Tujh ko chaahaa tou aur chaah na ki

Tere dast-e-sitam ka ajz nahin
Dil hi kaafir thaa jisne aah na ki

The shab-e-hijr kaam aur bahut
Hum ne fikr-e-dil-e-tabaah na ki

Kaun qaatil bachaa hai shahar mein 'faiz'
Jiss se yaaron ne rasm-o-raah na ki

Quick Reviews


New series - Just watched the pilot episode. It should’ve been titled Senseless instead. Waste. Not going to bother.

Blacklist - Season 4

Watched 2 episodes of Season 4. Trash. Dumping the series now.

IndiGo Bars Kids Below 12 From Premium Seats

NEW DELHI: If you are flyingIndiGo with children under 12 years of age, then the extra leg room seats are out of bounds for you. The low cost carrier has termed seats in rows 1-4 and 11-14 as "quiet zones" and passengers travelling with young children, or unaccompanied minors, cannot pre-book them by paying extra for these premium seats.


Excellent move! Of course, as with most brilliant ideas, there is an OUTRAGE from pretty much every corner. Sigh…

One somewhat legitimate ‘concern’ brought up: A senior Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) official said: "Won't premium row passengers be disturbed by children crying in rear rows? We will examine this policy of IndiGo."

Yes. It would be annoying and disturbing, but we can’t throw them off the plane, now can we? At least here is an attempt to make it a bit LESS disturbing. Are you incapable of understanding that?

Wish all the airlines would adopt a similar policy (and also introduce some sort of screening procedure before allowing one to book a business class / first class seat).
