Harmonicity – Synchronicity of Singers?

By the way, this post blew up my web browser repeatedly while this was prepared by my web team; my longest post to date is LOADED with information, lol.

Fashion is Fun

MI Won a Tough Match over KKR

Written by on in Cricket, Kolkata, Mumbai

As I’ve noted earlier, it’s quite a dilemma for me: I love both of India’s biggest cities, so naturally my allegiance was divided. Kolkata Knight Riders (with a Sharukh Khan/Juhi Chawla pedigree) has a special place in my heart. I think of it like Heroes of my Hometown. Mumbai Indians (with the other obvious film industry […]
