An evening in Bandra - the secret lives of Team

The team got together at Barbeque Nation, Bandra to celebrate. We as of now are not sure what we were celebrating!

But we discovered some strange and yet unknown facts about people we work with. For example we realized Madhu could fly, that Urmila is a supporter of a certain political party and can get you wiped off the face of earth, Mohnish is not really Mohnish but a closet something from a certain neighbouring state, Rohit is actually quite flirty and nice, Priyanka is a secret 'look after nephews' aunt, Vipul stares and laughs when drunk and starts talking non tech too, Nikita does not drink in public! Manoj does not mind drinking like a fish, Dev likes to talk to his drink, Ram loves spicy mushrooms and exotic English veggies, Swati fights with Coke and calls it rum, Susmita changes plates when fishes jump off the grill and land on her side of the table, Nikesh gets lost on a straight road and changes seats often, Amar Singh gets high on mocktails too, Nirmal eats noodles with gulab jamuns. And I take pictures that are really bad.

We promise more dope and pics as the get passed along by the people who were not drunk.

Welcome Star One and Star Plus on

Yesterday was one of the most remarkable days in the life of Networks. Two of the most popular channels in the Indian television industry - Star One and Star Plus went live with shows that made history - Koffee With Karan, Laughter Challenge, Kyun Ki..., Sanjeevani and so on. Now people who miss these serials and talk shows can catch them on the 6500+ widgets and on the portals. They can forward these shows to their friends via email and IMs and also comment and rate their shows.

Team's RSS (Rajiv, Swati, Shalin) feed were in Bengaluroo with the Star TV team setting things up and ensuring they met their ambitious deadline of going live before they left for Mumbai. These guys made Susmita jump around so much that it was making the rest of us nervous about the health of the office building. All said and done - it was a fantastic feeling to see here in Mumbai show after show go live without any hitches. Great job RSS.

And thank you Ram, Rohit, Vipul, Vikas, Dev, Nikesh, Nitin and Deepak for the excellent support from behind the scenes. You guys deserve a great communal hug!

Mumbai Meri Jaan along supports the thought that 'Together we can, and together we will' defeat terror. At nine tonight we go live with a special film on MirchMasala channel called Together We Can. We also have the film live across our network.

This film has been created by WizCraft and features our Prime Minister along with prominent personalities like Shahrukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Sachin Tendulkar amongst others.

We hope that this film will inspire millions of Indian across the world who watch the videos on our network to make that little bit of effort to ensure that the country does not suffer anymore at the hands of the people who want us to be scared and live in the shadow of terror.
