Om Shanti Om - Hindi Movie Review

After a long time, i got to see a hindi movie...This movie looked as if it was taken in 1980s. I slowly realized that the movie is set in that time, so no wonder, to enfforce the reality, the director has made the costumes and characters to suite that era...

In india, this movie has grossed Rs.85 crores ($22 Million) in 6 weeks. Worldwide, its grosss is $39 million....

Watch Arjun Rampal in a very different type of role...Unfortunately, his charm / charisma is lost in the character...

Eggnog - The Nog part in the Name.

On the christmas day, i was fortunate in being a part of the American Family. All of us had eggnog when a inquisitive boy asked his Mom where the What the Nog in eggnog meant? I wondered why i never asked that question in particular and such questions in general. The tools that i have access to (e.g. Wiki, google) should have made me more inquisitive than ever. But I/it failed.

Coming to the point, Eggnog (or egg nog) is a sweetened dairy-based beverage made with milk, cream, sugar, beaten eggs (which gives it a frothy texture), and flavoured with ground cinnamon and nutmeg; alcoholic versions also exist with the addition of various liquors, such as rum, brandy, or whisky.

2 different NOG Story

1. The drink adopted the NOG part of its name from the word noggin, a Middle English phrase used to describe a small, wooden, carved mug used to serve alcohol in.

2. Yet another story is that the term derived from the name egg-and-grog, a common Colonial term used to describe rum. Eventually the term was shortened to egg'n'grog, then eggnog.
