TV shows--What next??

Being a stay-at-home/housewife,quite a lot of my time is devoted to the idiot box and my laptop.After my routine work and blogging,I plop up in front of the tv and watch a lot of stuff.Movies,songs,some serials and sometimes news:).Of course,sometimes even after the regular channel surfing,I feel there's nothing interesting to watch-not in any of the 200+ channels,yes that happens!!

It was during one such day that I hopped on to Ndtv Imagine's show Rahul ka Swayamvar.I was curious.I had seen trailers of Rakhi ka swayamvar and the buzz of their engagement and then so-called-break-up and then again them appearing as a couple in some other show.But this isn't about Rakhi Sawant,no.As someone said,like her-hate her but you cannot ignore her:)

I don't know much about Rahul Mahajan.Except that his father was murdered,sometime later he[Rahul] was hospitalised due to a Cocaine overdose and within 3 months of his father's demise,he got engaged to his childhood sweetheart and got married soonafter.

Married..??Then why the swayamvar??I wanted to find out..remember..I was curious??!!

I googled and found out that his ex-wife[yup,he is divorced now] filed a case against him for divorce stating incompatibilty.There were even serious allegations of Rahul beating his wife!!!

I have seen footages of the show Big Boss on Youtube where in some scenes,Rahul is seen openly flirting with Payal Rohatgi.

Now my question is..who would want to marry a guy who was arrested for Cocaine overdose..was married and divorced with serious allegations of beating up his wife..was seen flirting with fellow-participant on national television?? None..??Oh no,you are wrong..17 girls are vying for his attention just so they can be his bride....*gasp*

From whatever I have seen,the participants are literally on their knees proposing to him and he's having a real tough time deciding on whom to get married to.One participant while getting eliminated said-If only you had paid some attention to me,we could have worked on our chemistry..eeeks.Another one said-you only pay attention to so&so and don't give any bhaav[attention] to us.Gosh..I truly find it hard to digest.

I am not being judgemental here,no.I am just wondering how time changes and people's attitude too.Tv shows have gone from bad to worse and I really wonder what they are thinking of next..!!!

Diet..Got to start!!

Much has been written about the dreaded four letter word DIET these days in blogs and forums and websites.This month's Reader's digest even carried an article on it.Everyone wants to lose weight,but how.As I have mentioned before,I have had a love-hate relationship with my diet as well as weight.I've gone from healthy to very plump to very thin again to very fat and back to healthy weight.

Off late,due to some unavoidable circumstances,I've not been following my diet and my regular walks.Which of course has taken its toll on my weight.

I was 52kgs while on my diet and reached 54 after I started eating regular food.It was constant for a while but now I've shot to 56.5 and that has started giving me nightmares.I want to go back to my regular weight ie 52 kgs,hence lose 4.5 kgs.I need to buck up..NOW!!
