This is what happens when you go back to being a full time writer rather than a writer in exile. when you're in exile your blog is the only thing you write and you feed it like a hungry wolf, with all your observations and comments etc. But when you have another medium of expression and you write for a living then you tend to not go back and write some more. But I know I want to and I've been napping so I'm back. First up, a short backgrounder of what I've been upto:

> people met: Donatella Versace, Pierce Brosnan (only seen not met), Abhishek Bachchan, Tushar Kapoor, Rabbi Shergill, Anand Mahindra, Anurag Kashyap, Indian Idols that's all I can remember.
> people spoken to: Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt, Rakhi Sawant, Anu Malik, Sandhya Mridul, Neetu Singh (kept visualising Khel and her other films though she's far slimmer now), Farhan Akhtar (hot voice), Shabana Azmi, Konkona Sensharma, Mallika Sherawat's secy, Salman Khan's secy, Sanjay Dutt's secy, Hrithik Roshan's secy, Ajay Devgan's secy... need more?
> lesson learnt: it pays to be with a big brand because it opens up doors of access but with the proliferation of media, especially TV channels, visibility is just not an issue anymore. So stars have become choosy and that's made life more difficult. So throwing a big name may not be enough all the time.
> lesson number 2: some filmstars are very very painful, others are so sweet and nice they help you deal with the painful ones. but is this one warped, twisted industry... more on Bollywood later

Relax. Don't sweat the wolf stuff.

This blog, am sure, can be fed at leisure in true connoisseur fashion. There's also Wolfian gradualism, y'know... a special variant of Naomian empathy.

An empathy that differs from Campbellian gradualism (ref: drug detox campaign).

Also differs from Kleinian gradualism (ref: brand integrity campaign).
