Kidman, Cruise and The Law Of Karma!

When Katie Homes ditched her husband of 8 years Tom Cruise, am sure many of us thought about the same situation that happened with Nicole Kidman and Tom only roles reversed. Well I sure don’t know much or I must say anything about Scientology but I sure do a lot about Karma. I mean of course there is nothing much to understand as the philosophy can be summed up in one line- what goes around, comes back around.

Tom’s life is one hell of an example for how Karma works. He left his then wife Kidman for apparently no solid reason. He impregnated her, forgot his duties, cited “irreconcilable differences” as the basis for the divorce and got out of her life. Just like that! Three months later she had a miscarriage and the pathos the woman went through can’t be imagined. Crying for him on a certain TV show, she said she will always love him.

And 14 years later here he is going through the same situation again. Only difference being, him on the receiving end. Now nobody is sure what exactly happened, but I guess this is going to be one heck of a lesson learnt for Cruise!

I have had so many incidents in my own life when Karma has worked. I never believed in the philosophy and branded it as one of those tricky lines people use to keep oneself from doing wrong. But when it did bite and I went “ouch”, I realized it was real. Since then I am always on guard, deciding to do or not to do things after analyzing their consequences only. While it doesn’t teach any great lessons of life, Karma definitely guides you to a better path.

I might be sounding a tad bit philosophical here but I can't help it. After all I am from the spiritual land of India!

Steven Eckholdt – The most Hate-able Person on TV

Ok so it’s not about his personality to start with, but the characters he has played over the years, that have made him the most hateable TV person on my list. I know he is handsome and totally metrosexual – looking, but hey, nobody coerced him into playing the two worst characters on Television. So here goes, the “ that third guy who broke the cute couple up” roles he played:
Mark Robinson – FRIENDS:

Who doesn’t remember his character Mark Robinson from FRIENDS? We all hated him, when he got Rachel an interview at Bloomingdale’s, we hated him when Rachel hugged him leaving Ross cold after her interview, we hated him when he got her Chinese food right after Ross & Rachel’s situation which later got very famous as the “we were on a break” scene, we hated him when he told Rachel he had a huge crush on her but didn’t act upon it because she was with Ross then, we hated him and this was the last nail in the coffin– when he took Rachel out and hurt Ross (Unintentional? I don’t think so!)…

The Most Important Groupies of All Times

The Rock n Roll storm of the 60s was a much needed revolution in the music history which gave us many great bands and musicians the world segments as “legends” today. While we are all well aware of how much this time period was unequivocally the best time to “be discovered” in the music industry, I wonder how many of us truly notice what kind of opulence being discovered led to.Money – check, villa – check, vanity, private jets – check, fame – check, women – check oh check!

Women – as musicians were a small group compared to the behemoth group of male musicians in the 60s and the 70s. Pattie Smith, Stevie Nicks and a handful more made their mark in the male dominated music industry. Also behind the veil were the groupie clan that slowly and steadily made their ways into the rainbow lives of artists – satisfying the egos and “other things” these men were “in need” of. Being a groupie was more than legitimate if these girls (also men, yes there were male groupies also ) were of the right…

Things "Desperate Housewives" Taught Me:

In the wake of Eva Longoria being named Maxim's "Woman of the Year", I am teleported back to the era of "Desperate Housewives”. It’s been 2 years now since the show ended but the women of Wisteria lane still remain in our memories as the strongest women ever created on TV. Though it mostly belonged to a thriller-drama genre, it was considered a comedy too. There were some serious moments, some very funny ones, some absolutely deliriously painful moments and some emotional ones. Let’s relive some of those diverse moments now in the form of a list of life lessons each of these witty and glamorous housewives taught us:

1. Things Gabby taught us:
a. It’s okay to love oneself -
You know who I am talking about - the narcissistic yet affable Gabriel Solis. So what if she spent hours doing yoga, so what if she had a room full of clothes and shoes, so what if she cheated on her husband, so what if she lied occasionally? She did em all to keep herself happy. To consciously switc…
