" सरहदें तो ज़मींन के बटवारे के लिए होती है,

दिलो के गुलिस्तां में सरहदो का क्या वास्ता "

My experience with Pakistan television 
I have  lived in two parts of country closer to Pak border . 
Akhnoor (J&K) year 1998 to 2001,Sriganganagar(Rajasthan) 2002-2005 .The boundaries were within 50 km at max . The television frequencies would be caught by our antennae.
I have seen PTV  and Doordarshan .  I have seen some television serials though i don't remember any , well i didn't have cable network so didn't have much choice . I just watched for timepass and somewhat loved that accent,language. I saw news of both sides ,interesting was to view news of India on PTV and news of Pakistan on Doordarshan .I Don't like to make any political comments but both were biased. Ultimately people end up creating their opinion on these biased news . This was my experience with Television on Pakistan and India .

I loved the efforts of Zee Network and Zindagi to mend this gap because as kid i didn't distinguish ,i just watched tv . Today atleast i have choice . 
I am not much of serial guy but would like to try a few ,just for the shear fun . If i can watch telugu movies,tamil movies ,indonesian ,chinese , why not pakistani . 

 Concept

I wasn't sure what to expect in the meet but it turned out wonderfull .
I loved the concept . Good approach to change thinking of people .Good way to blend in .
We love the music of Rahat Fateh Ali khan , Atif Aslam,Ali Zafar,Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan,Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan,Ghulam ali ,Adnan Sami ( I googled this list ,Surprised to see Names 20+).  I carry their music in mobile ,share it ,like it for the quality of their music,talent that's the beauty of it :) . 
I expect same from Zindagi ,to blend in our hearts the actors ,acting ,stories .
 Don't promote Zindagi as pakistani television just let it blend . Soon the names will be common .People will google them ,their bio,wiki pages and they will be part of us. They will appreciate the actors and serials for their acting .

I loved the effort ,i loved the concept . 

Experience at 

I love indiblogger meets ,It's fun :) . 
Good concept
Loved the effort of zindagi . 

Delicious food

Venue arrangement was very good ,the Leela hotel ,indiblogger has got bigger :) . Round tables ,drinking arrangements,I saw many scribbling on notepads, Live video streaming ,chat with Delhi and Pakistan .Fun part was Delhi Vs Mumbai . Yo ! Delhites you cant beat Amchi Mumbai .

Love kills

-ismita Tandon 


Got this book from Harper Collins Publishers for review . :)

Love kills  book cover
This book is social/suspense/crime-friction novel . Why so many genre!? Well it was hard to decide. i love the plot ,the description style ,the events occurred ,issues mentioned for social cause and how families compromise to be together.
There are lot of emotions in this novel romance,hatred,jealousy ,anger ,obsession,guilt and  lot more..

Novel has touched some very important issues and highlighted them in such light that one could actually relate to many of them .Alcoholics family issues,compromises,events are described very well ,the betrayal in love relationships ,unquestioned love,trust and lot more..
I really wont like to give away the plot. The story should unfold as you read it else you wont follow the theme of the book .
There is bit of family melodrama in book but then it always is and it's important to book .
Characters taken are very strong :
Johnny :- main character ,a psychiatrist ,highly talented ,High IQ ,working for social cause,philanthropist guy . Story revolves around this man . 
Then there are Mira ,Sera,Adele,Officer Ray,Zac,General,Lady Baines,Azaan ,Mr.Kermani . Sometimes name intrigue you to read ;-) .

Best part in novel,I love how poetry is integrated in the book.

'If love could be bought ,
The queue would be long '

Here goes one character ,but its worth it.Poetic narration of an Alcoholic,the General.The Journal of an alcoholic with poems,his guilt,his shame ,pride .
 If you like reading poems you will love them.

' The hands that tremble in desolation,
The eyes that mirror desperation,
Belong to me ,
Yet i am stranger to them....'

Another comes from Officer Ray..

' I lie,I lie very often,
Sometimes i don't even remember,
At times I don't wish to ,
Still,I like my memories Clean,
They may not be worth a dime,
But they are all I have,
the ashes in the urn ,
To hold tight,on a dark,lonely night .'

The novel has suspense,mystery,crime,romance,social cause. In writing style use of poems,diary-journal entries ,letters is very good . Loved the writing style. 

 This novel has really touched me . I recommend it to all . There is something in it for everyone. 
Happy reading :)
