    I’ve got Om Shanti Om stuck in my head and need to replace it with some other tunes.

    I need a joyful respite from the storm of crap that has enveloped me this month, and I think Bollywood is it

    I’ve been wanting to come to your parties for a very long time, truth is, I cannot afford the tickets. The student budget does not allow me to splurge very often. It would be great to win tickets!! Either way, I’ll be there in spirit, just as I always am!
