When Kiran Met Karen

Next to “Neil/Neal,” which functions as an approximation of the Sanskrit “Neel,” “Kiran,” close enough to the Celtic “Kieran,” is the most over-used American-Born Desi name.

Now there’s a movie about a lesbian love affair--When Kiran Met Karen--being shot in New York with Purva Bedi. And how meta--it starts off on a movie set.

More about the movie (that I’m convinced is secretly dying to be called a ‘film’) here.

My friend and I were recently discussing about how we as a society are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about almost every day.
