The missing link

A kind soul has put the link up on You tube, and much to my consternation, another kind commenter (Thank you Gypsy) led me to it.

I’m the one in the corner with the funny curled at the ends hair and the crossed legs. And since the uplinked portion is strangely only half the programme with only my part in it, you will not get to hear the words of wisdom being spewed by the other two guests.

My two unknown benefactors. Thank you.

  2. Nat says:

    checked it out – you were too critical of yourself, I think you were looking great. Did you do ur hair urself?? Sense and sensibility personified.


  3. Broom says:

    this was good fun. And I don’t agree with Ayub – that it’s ok for one person to evolve. From personal experience I can say that this spells doom!
    loved your sandals, btw.


  4. Average Jane says:

    Aha! I watched you too though 11 is waaay past by bedtime!! Unfortunately I didn’t like the programme much and I thought they should have just taped shut Ayub after the first 5 secs. I liked you though you looked a tad nervous..well, I would be too! And you do have gorgeous hair.


  5. Kiran Manral says:

    Tara: You are so sweet.

    Nat: No. I left myself to the hands of the makeup and hair guys. The segment of me in my office. Thats the normal me.

    Broom: Isnt it? Both partners need to grow. It just wont work otherwise. But maybe he had his reasons for saying so.

    Jane: Yeah, I was so nervous. And rather disappointed that the discussion didnt lead to anything conclusive.

    I saw the video yipppeeeeee yay yay

    Finally I could see the video on Saturday morning….man why do you complain all the time about being fat, if you complain then it means I should literally kill myself. Loved your hair and sandals, they were really cute. I don’t like ayub that much but rajat kapoor ok ok.
    You look gorgeous.


  8. sushma says:

    thankz to the unknown.. it was real nice to see the person i admire so much if not in person, on TV.. you are just too good… and yes, stop being so harsh on yourself :)).


  9. Anamika says:

    Hey, I watched the clip. I really liked what you said. It speaks to me, especially right now.

    And agree with Broom that
    (a)both people need to evolve, or at least to understand the need for it,
    (b) and, more importantly, your sandals were sexy, and you looked great!


  10. Kiran Manral says:

    Jayshree, Sushma: You flatter me. sab makeup ka kamaal hain.

    Anamika: Point b noted. Thankee.
