Though Cin has some kind of "firebrand" nature of posts, but often they become nice(rich) example of Lolism. Her last post, the Dumb Blond, was not jerky, it was picturesque; it appears surreal though you think a bit, its a complete unadulterated truth. No doubt Keshi, picked the theme with Lara Croft like pace, and now so, the whole Dumbness issue has become academic matter of Girl's world. Spice up yourself. Yesterday (28th), at 3AM when I was cajoling with my laptop, I saw Cin's post, and I was sure the day will have funny moments. So when I entered into coffee room of my office, sipping self made half water - half milk-little sugar with a lot of tea infusions diffusing randomly to create some intelligent order, tea, I found myself as a grand spectator of heatly Cricket discussion. Remember, India has taught me that the easiest way to kill your time is to be in mid of a cricket, politics or SRK-Amitabh-Bollywood discussion. (By the way, such type of Indian philosophy is known to every Indian, and when Shashi Tharoor tried to exemplify this philosophy (in a sense of his grand study), Chandrahas Choudhury in his blog -- The Middle Stage ,has rightly made an intellectual comic of him) . So here goes conversation between two of my company mates (call them A and B):-

A:- I think Sachin should retire, and he should become Indian Coach. (his seriousness reflected as if he is next Gorbachev)
B:-Why do you want to make him Indian coach, he should better remain as a player. (what an idiot person I am talking to)
A:- No for the future of Indian Team, he should retire. (Retire Sachin, Retire ... your every delay is a statement of anti-patriotism).
B:-Hmm... Sachin cannot be a good coach ... you know this AAmmmiiiir,..umm..., In ... Sohaib Malik,..., no player hears him ... (fool, what you are discussing on; there were mixed smiles around his lip corners)
A:-Amm, what do you want to say ...
B:-See Sachin will not be heard by the players. He is not ... (collecting the correct word)
A:-Why he will not be heard? Every body will hear him ... you are comparing Sachin with Sohaib ( B should be instantly guillotined)
B:- He is not authoritative. You know Sourabh Ganguly is the better person.
A:-Sachin is a better person ...
B:-Sourabh was not hearing Sachin when Sachin was captain.
A:-How you know that Sourabh was not hearing Sachin (now this is axiomatic, boy you are stuck)
B:-Sachin was not able to command Sourabh.
B:-Sachin is kinda soft guy.
A:-People like you are stupid, you don't know meaning of your words (tug of war)
B:-You are stupid, you do not know how to discuss.
A:-What has happened to your mental condition ...

So the fight had begun, though, as their discussions were not time bound to company work (how can it be!), I left the place.

Manisha Panday is writing some really good posts in Hindi. The quality of her Hindi Literature assures me that Hindi has great future.


Anton Chekhov's 201 short stories can be read from this place. If you have a lightened soul, you will like them.

Sowmalya on Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya

Sowmu, my friend and the song Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya of Shree 420.
If we think from the premises of this film this song resembles the pain one is going through during the parting times.

But if we see the song from the beginning the song is being sung by a group of street people who in general does not have anything to loose or not much a thing to gain .Their singing the song indicates their casual interaction with life and easy acceptance of any good or bad. One big teaching which comes from this film is HOPE. Which reflects in a couple of plots of the film e.g. the 100 rupees flat sequence , the hope to get everything back for the poor, getting the love back after all the miss happenings.As we know this film is the journey of a small town guy coming to a big town and lost his naive ness partly due to the circumstances and partly by his inclination to be rich early (which in general every body have) .The first part of the song tries to make him remember the pure soled human with which he …

Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette

Now I'm a fella with a heart of gold,
The ways of a gentleman,
I've been told.
The kind of a guy that wouldn't even harm a flea
But if me and a certain character met
That guy that invented that cigarette
I'd murder that son of a gun in the first degree.
Well not because I don't smoke myself
I don't reckon they'll harm your health
I've smoked all my life and I'm not dead yet.
But nicotine
slaves are all the same,
At a pettin' party or a poker game,
Everything's must stop while they smoke a cigarette.

Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! that cigarette.
Puff! Puff! Puff!
And if you smoke yourself to death,
Tell Saint Peter at the golden gate
That you hate to make him wait,
But you got to have another cigarette.

Now in a game of chance the other night,
Old Dame Fortune was doing me right.
The kings and queens just kept on comin' round
I played 'em hard and I bet 'em high
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
He kept on r…

Archie and Betty ... or Archie and Veronica

So with whom Archie should go finally ? The 600th edition's cover page suggests it could be Veronica !!!

Oh! don't say that this is their personal life, personal decision ... and one should not interfere, intervene !!! Veronica seems to be happily blogging, and cheerfully oozing her wavy words. But lo and behold, the whole blogger world is damn serious about this issue, and internet is flooded out of discussion - with whom Archie should marry !

He should marry otherwise "Bahan Jee" (sister kinda) type Betty or should he go for the "Kat" Veronica?

Its 2009. Its 68 years of Archie Andrews. He is still young, still to marry ... thanks because he is a comics character. But he is not just a comics character. Along with Veronica, Betty, Jughead, Reggie, Dilton and all of Riverdale and Riverdale High School - Archie develops on your imagination. In your teens you may have been fan of this team, your father in his teens may be fan of this team and perhaps may be your…
