Homi Bhathena of Jazz Garden is no more

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Got a shock when reading the newspaper today morning. Homi Bhathena, former champion cyclist and the founder-owner of the erstwhile Jazz Garden had met with an accident on the Bombay-Pune highway and was no more. Apparently, a bus rammed into his car, though some other passengers in the car survived.

Jazz Garden was one of the several restaurants that was part of the ABC Farms complex. It was a favoured haunt for me and like minded friends and we would often chill out there and enjoy the live music over good food and drinks. This place was a fantastic platform for new and upcoming musicians to showcase their talent, and I remember thinking highly of some of those bands at the time.

Yet another beginning v 2.0

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Its been quite a while since this blog was created… and forgotten somewhere in time… Almost two years later, it is being revived. The June effect, perhaps?

Lots of things happening on all fronts… The Sensex plunged further and nosedived below the 10K mark, the “new” Saral form threatens to cause more consternation among the already “tax-harassed” people, fuel prices shoot up by a hefty margin… We also have two “Rahuls” making the news, though for entirely diverse reasons. While Rahul Mahajan faces the prospect of police custody, Rahul Bajaj prepares to enter the Rajya Sabha as an Independent candidate, backed by the BJP, NCP and Shiv Sena, leaving the Congress red-faced.
