Yuva may well go down as the most reviewed film in history--reviews reviews everywhere and nor any word of sense--all the rags I read on Sunday had to give their patently biased opinion on how Mani Sir this and that--consensus that it was a cut above the rest but still flawed --this sounds like sour grapes to me.Might be time to check out the version by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu ( tough name ) although Mani Sir maintains the resemblance is passing --thank God Calcutta is not Mexico City.

The French Open starts today--Federer versus Kuerten in R3--cruel, especially when Guga is nowhere near the form that has brought him 3 titles.

Mustered up all the will power in the world not to hit the office on Saturday--yakked for a couple of hours with Nikhil, an old friend based in Bangalore, and then after a tonsure headed down to the British Council. Was on the verge of cursing my luck & withdrawing from the scene on finding the portals closed when a Good Samaritan directed me to the next building where the Library was. Leisurely leafed through 2 issues of the rather innocuously named "People Management" and the overrated " Wisden" before settling on a Peter Carey book. Was tartly told by the person at the counter that only members with Family Cards would be issued Music CDs--sad but true. Am almost through with the " True History of the Kelly Gang" .

Have a possibly dangerous appointment with a legal eagle tomorrow
