    An Interview with Aditi Mathur Kumar!

    TM: Do you write to a schedule?
    AMK: Oh, how I wish! I have no schedule whatsoever and I don’t understand how people can write according to a schedule. Write daily for three hours is the type of writing tip that has never worked for me. I am either completely detached and don’t write a word for a month, or I am completely consumed with an idea, writing throughout the day (and half the night).

Fast & Furious 6 – A Review!

Where Fast & Furious 6 differs from its predecessors is that it gives due importance to character development. In a very succinct way, it manages to link many of the characters from the previous editions in order to bring a logical end to many of the open threads.

Surprisingly, everyone gets enough screen time to showcase their abilities and emotions.
