Some Clips:-

  • George Fernandes Interview by Karan Thapar -- Karan Thapar in his TV programme, Devil Advocate , intrigued George Fernandes over all possible issues. And when Karan Thapar interviews some one, it appears like -- "stupid,.. ANSWER my question". Geroge Fernandes had his great glorious day, when in those days his oratory and administrative role matched best of the country. But then the Jaya Jaitley case, the coffin scam and his constrained relationship with his party members; made him just a symbolic figure of his past. George is now 78, and in the above mentioned interview he appeared unconscious, fighting with himself to utter single words and his health appeared poor. Often Karan had to put letters in his mouth. It did not appear a fair debate. Actually it appeared cruel. A person who was once pitted as possible PM after Vajpayee, who is no Deve Gowda no Lalu, though he could have easily got cool-nice power positions for himself, should not be treated in such manner.

  • RACE -- My brother and sister pressed hard to watch this movie at some multiplex. In 2007 I watched three movies in Cinema Halls -- Saawariya, Welcome and Taare Zameen Par. Movies like Welcome, are some of the best example of worst making of a movie and still becoming a major hit. And Saawariya ... when I told my sister ( Anisha and Nandi ) that its background was great, somewhere somekind of flame appeared! But Saawariya is like a metaphor, where its words got consumed, absorbed in the poet himself. It suffered lack of dialogue with spectator. Now coming back to RACE, I was in no mood to spend my hard earned pennies on such a movie where Bipasha Basu, Sameera Reddy and Katrina Kaif ( she always giggles or smiles, and this is her central acting prowess )are the poster ladies. No doubt, my skepticism turned true when I saw it on my Lappy. The suspense, thrill and the unfaithfulness of the step bothers ( Saif & Akshay Khanna, in the film ) is worth of 17 years old 1st year college student only. Not for me.
It is now almost 10 years since I slept on the roof of my Mama Jee's house, which is in a village, where the cold but soothing breeze kept the soul happy; the bare sky, where the stars were twinkling and playing with your eyes ... where is that peace and the calmness ?


  1. Awesome post !

    And I totally agree to the Karan Thapar thing...his tiff upper lip bellowing harangues and pelting qustions like his assis on fire...reduces the interviewee to a 'bichara' culprit on the dock..ready to be hanged.

    And you went to watch Race ? No way ! But then I heard it was good...dunno. I aint a multiplex person anyway. Even I am not the one to spend my hard earned buck on a stupid movie.

    Glad to have you back !

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…
