Cineworm & Me

Before y’all ponder, why Cineworm for gods sake? Let me tell you that it is literal translation of commonplace Hindi (Indic Language) term, Filmy Keeda. Anybody with extreme obsession and inquisitive nature is a Keeda in Mumbai lingo.

So, a bookworm is Kitabi Keeda


while someone who is very inquiring & inquisitive is just a Keeda.


So, my obsession with movies combined with my inquiring nature qualifies me as Cineworm.
