Lisa Ray revisits her 2001 Hindi film, Kasoor, and writes, 'Minor outbreak of 90s Hindi film memento of a reluctant actor. Renounce if you can, a lie about yourself a day.

'I believed I was confused and lost. Broken, self conscious and reckless but also too erudite for Bollywood. That's the stories I told myself while filming. The truth is life was waiting for me to take my seat at the table, to quit making excuses, stop taking anything personally and dance - even with my two left feet with radical ardour.'

Twinkle Khanna shares her travel musings.

'Hello Mona Lisa. Bye jet spray.

'When we travel, we change form. From stationary to still.

'Routine is commonly described as a fixed time to do fixed things. An elixir to enhance productivity, and a cage.

'When we travel, devoid of routine, we wander, watch and wonder.

'We gaze at the grey river changing into a crinkled, embroidered navy with threads of glittering sequins. The swollen Buck Moon hanging low over the water, jeering the sun with its size. When did we last look at the moon in our own town, we ask each other, shaking our heads in disbelief.

'We return altered and committed to holding onto the change.

'Inevitably, we slip back into the straitjackets of structure.

'Then we wait. To book tickets and clamber into metal tubes. Looking for the pieces of ourselves buried under the longitude and latitude of our lives.'
