weekly roundup number one // 2015.

[monday morning commute on the bangalore metro]
I've been toying with doing some sort of weekly link roundup for some time now. I'm still not fully convinced it's something I want to or will do, but there were a few things that caught my eye this week that I wanted to share.

So here goes, and we'll see if it's something I decide to keep up with in the future:

Maratha Mandir in Bombay just aired their final showing of DDLJ after 1009 consecutive weeks. And now I will never be able to forgive myself for not seeing it when I lived in Bombay.

Sir Ken Robinson continues to inspire educators around the world with his wit, his charm, and his calls to action. One of my favourite TED Talks.

Grantland has created a bracket to determine the top second banana of all time. I voted for my first round picks and can't wait to check back next week for Round 2.

A really interesting story on Maptia about growing up in a country that technically doesn't exist. [reminded me a lot of The Terminal, which has been airing on tv in India a lot recently]

This Thrillist article captures so much of Memphis' wonderful weirdness. And makes me just a little bit homesick for BBQ and fried chicken.

Happy weekend, world!


  1. R.I.P. DDLJ at Maratha Mandir and R.I.P. Deepika's line from YJHD.

    1. Our father tried to tell me they've decided to keep showing it. I'm going to Bombay in May and will confirm. If that man's gotten my hopes up for nothing, he'll be sorry.
