OT: #MeToo [And I am Neither an Actor Nor Pretty]

Like so many women and men, I have been following the exposure and revelations of the systematic sexual harassment Harvey Weinstein has inflicted on so many women over the last decades. The revelations – even though highly disturbing – did not surprise me. I was aware of the ‘casting couch’ phenomenon, and the power that…

OT: Let Us Rise! #DigitalTheatre #DACA

On the eve of yet another business trip, I am catching up with world politics as much as some commercial grievances of the past week. First of all I would like to add my voice to the angry choir of disappointed theatre fans who are feeling betrayed and taken advantage of by Digital Theatre. I…

OT: Observations on the SD with #DavidTennant

Confession: I don’t have any side dishes, collateral attractions or ‘guilty pleasures’ besides my one and only crush. I’m not a Whovian, either, but if I had to pick a favourite Doctor, it would probably be number 10. There’s something about David Tennant – apart from the delicious Scottish accent (check out this *fantastic* audio…

OT: ❤️ -Letter to London

Interrupting the heavy work load today to insist on the beauty of the world. I never expected it, and I came to London really late, but it has become one of my favourite places on Earth. I was in my late twenties when I visited it the first time; and it really didn’t hit me…

OTT?

So, with my Social Media hiatus looming, I am surreptitiously trying to generate more reasons for myself to blog and thus avoid cold turkey stay in touch and have reasons to be online and commenting/reading/distracting myself. Over the top? No, I was thinking of an OTT along the lines of a “Off-Topic Tuesday”. You see, recently I have…

OT: Help Aleppo

The situation in Aleppo/Syria has worsened infinitely in the last few days. What was already a war-torn city, has now become what looks like a site of genocide. The vlogs that have been posted on Twitter, could not be any more urgent and haunting. There seems to be a seize fire in place since midnight,…
