The current launch model for #starkids for their debut #movies

Especially applicable to kids entering with #KaranJohar #SajidNadiadwala

1. The star kids become active on Instagram. While most are active anyways, they now hire a agency to manage #socialmedia + do #PR 2. #BombayTimes articles begin to happen, giving inspirational stories from their life or getting quotes from them on topics like #fashion #fitness #holidayspots etc

4. Rumours circulate about their starring in an upcoming film

5. Photoshoot happens with 1-2 reputable magazines

One of the cheaper options, the third cheapest to be precise, in #Qatar for #FifaWorldCup, is $5500 for a week

We spent half that in #SouthAfrica, #Brazil & #Russia for 3 weeks each

Also only one portal to access acco, no hotel sites etc

@FIFAWorldCup @QatarEmb_London @qatar Image Unlike any of the previous 6 #WorldCup I've attended, this is by far the most painful, most expensive one already

The govt needs to step in to provide more, cheaper accommodation options right away

Also, the sites aren't functioning well

Given my love for #travel, thought I'd compile a thread of some of the best #tourism ads I've seen over the years

Am keeping it restricted to #PrintAds, and only those by #tourismboards, whether national, state or city

Hope you enjoy it 🙂🥂 and are inspired to travel We could warm up with #Australia's 'So Where The Bloody Hell Are You' campaign, which turned a lot of heads thanks to it's choice of wording and, of course, the stunning visuals
Politeness can be over rated, eh @Australia 🖖🏾

Existential thread re how much do you love your kids & if you really, really want them over for Xmas holidays?

All thanks to @DGCAIndia @MoCA_GoI & @JM_Scindia @PMOIndia allowing v few flights, so fares > ₹1.5 lac, any sector, #London to #India
In @ShashiTharoor's cattle class Thought I'd begin with our national carrier @airindiain after a great experience last time

Chose #AMD @ahmairport, one of our few international airports with A

Fare is £1983 (is it a promotion with the movie 83?)
Hey, it's #Gujarat, all business folks, ex Modi town. My bad!

Hilarious Thread re #Omicorn, received via Whatsapp

In just 48 hrs everything just went upside down. Looking at all the updates and social media posts, a colleague from my legal fraternity outlined the absurd response from the countries. Read On 😀 South Africa: Hey guys, look what we discovered in our labs while researching Covid19 variants and mutations

World: What??

SA: It's a new variant of Covid19 - seems to be different than others. Let’s work together & study further.

World: What? You have a new variant of Covid?!

Kind folks of Twitter, I need help in solving a personal issue ie lifting my sister

Avani, the angel of our world, is handicapped, no limb movement or communication possible. She has to be lifted from her bed on to her pram & vice versa about 6-8 times a day Two of us usually do the lifting, one from the shoulders, the other from the legs

Am assuming she weighs about 45-50 kgs and since no communication is possible, her body is inert and lifting isn't easy, though within our family we've been managing last 40 years
