Happy New Year 2014

Rossi Lorenzo Catalunya 2009
Dear All Readers, Wish you all a happy and prosperous new year, may the year 2014 turns out to be the luckiest one so far :) 

The photo is inspired by the video
I never watch motorcycle races but despite that, this was too good to watch. Really inspiring video, the way the top 2 fight for the final spot is really commendable.

Side business

Snipped from Deccan Chronicle- Hyderabad on the remunerations charged by tollywood actresses for dancing on New Year night.

The money these small time actresses make on that one day beats the average annual CTCs of any service professional. With all due respects to their profession.. 

wonder if the charge is only for on-stage performances :O......with tongue-in-cheek!..
