Depp rules!

We interrupt the regular transmission to bring you a news flash.

For the second year in a row, Johnny Depp has made it to the FIRST spot on the IMDB's top 25. This rating is based on the search behaviour of over 30 million users of the IMDB. To celebrate this, we present a picture of Depp from one of our all-time favourite movies - The Ninth Gate.

We wait eagerly to feast our eyes on The Libertine and of course, Shantaram. We fervently hope that he drops by in Colaba for the actual shooting of that epic novel.

Beware! Disparaging remarks about Mr. Depp or The Ninth Gate will be deleted. More power to the Deppster!

We will resume regular transmission shortly.

Thanks for the info about Shantaram. I was not aware of that.

I propose a Johnny Depp festival. Those is favour say 'aye'!

It is an amazing book. A little too philosophical sometimes but it describes all the places in Colaba TIFRites frequent like Leopolds, Colaba police station, Gateway, Navy Nagar slum, etc.
A great gift for someone leaving TIFR!

A Google search reveals that "Shantaram" is more than 925 pages. Last time I touched such a thick book was a actually a dictionary! And this was long before the invention of Google, when I was a kid weighing same as the dictionary! :)

Jokes apart, I'll definitely read the book once I get some time to spare.

I will try.

I would like you to come. But...I don't see how you could unless we can use the video-conferencing for these kind of things as well!

it is worth all of its 900 pages. at least, that is my opinion.
