Veni, Vidi, Vici…he came, he saw, he conquered! The phrase was coined by Julius Caesar in 47 BC after his victory over Pharnaces II of Pontus in the Battle of Zela. And after the absolutely riveting performance of Sonam Kalra, on December 16, it is rumoured that the new phrase for “she came, she saw, she conquered” will henceforth be referred to as Veni-am, Vidi-am, Vici-am in honour of the doe-eyed beauty Son-am.
“There is October in every November and there is November in every December! All seasons melted in each other’s life!”
What a fortnight and what a year!
Last fortnight we saw their Royal Highnesses, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visit Muscat.

Diwali Mubarak, Saal Mubarak, Happy Bhai Dooj aka Bhai Phota aka Bhau Beej , Happy Halloween, Happy November etc etc.

Some of you experienced withdrawal symptoms when the alternate Wednesday fix was conspicuous by its absence yesterday, while some of you rejoiced presuming that the TT was finally axed by MD! Absence makes the heart grow fonder or maybe absence makes the heart go wander?
