A chat which called for a political blog post!

Today afternoon, I was chatting with a friend about the famous political leader in Mumbai, Raj Thackeray. He says, he supports him to which I replied that though I don't support him I guess his agenda is right. When I was doing my internship with this company, I noticed that many employees were migrants from various northern, eastern and southern states. To which I don't have any problem at all but since you have come to mumbai and this is your "karmabhoomi" you might as well embrace it! Coming to work daily and cribbing how awful place this is you might better get your ass of here. However, I also met a few people who are in total love with this city though it is fast paced and were also making an effort to learn the local language, but that again is a rare case.

Again I don't favor any party here coz I believe in a country like India, whether it is party A or party B, neither have any potential to offer anything substancial. Over the years of what I have noticed there hasn't been any remarkable offering by any party. Every political party in India weighs equal pros and cons to which I believe the only reason is that this country is caste-driven and always will be.

India always stands out in the world map coz of its varied culture but I believe it has been our major weakness as well. Simply consider India without so many religions, castes or languages; with the amount of existing resources I am sure we would be a great hit! But we won't have anything to brag about are glorious past, right?

P.S: You are allowed to differ! :)

I could kill to get C.I.D off air!

Yeah you guessed it right, the very show which pops out at any hour of the day on Sony TV. C.I.D (Crime Investigation Department) is an insanely annoying detective serial on air these days. I mean has been for the past 11 years. Yeah dude even I go WTF??? If you haven't seen it yet, here is your chance to get to know the show better and then it is upto you if you can gather guts to watch such a mindless, pathetic show!

1. According to this show the people of Mumbai prefer calling C.I.D instead of police when there is any murder and C.I.D's number is on the speed dial of every person.

2. More then a detective serial I find it a show where they are trying to find out who is the lamest actor of them all? The ACP, the senior detectives, the doctors or the criminals?

3. The Case titles are also very creatively done. Here, check this out!
  • 1 January 2010 - Rahasya Shootout Ka
  • 8 January 2010 - Qatil Khiladi
  • 15 January 2010 - Khidki Ka Khooni Raaz
  • 17 January 2010 - Khooni Aatmahatya ( 2 Hr Special Sunday Night )
  • 22 January 2010 - Zeherily Laashey
  • 26 January 2010 - 12 Years Ke Khilaaf Gallantry Awards

  • 22 May 2010 - Khooni Kamre Ka Raaz                 
(Source: Wikipedia)

This should certainly give B-grade film titles a good competition.

4. The show's cast have been given outrageous and emotion-less dubbed voices which more or less sounds like robots are talking.

5. C.I.D's forensic department has gadgets which probably won't be invented in the real world in the next 50 years.

P.S If you haven't yet received C.I.D shayari/PJs you deserve to die!!!

the GOD theory!

I totally shudder on writing on flammable topics like religion, politics, GOD etc. It invites totally uncalled for debates. But this post is rather my observations and nothing else so you are allowed to differ.

Inspite of spending 12 years of my life in a convent girls school many are shocked that I turned out to be an atheist. And no I didn't choose it coz the name sounds so cool or emo-ish or to stand out among the totally devoted Indian audience, I chose it over the years of my observation. In my school, everyday early morning we had a 45 minute prayer session where we were suppose to stand all the while and join our hands to pray the catholic prayer. We were never given an option to skip the prayer service if we were of different caste or if one didn't believe in God. It was forced into us that God existed and that we had to stand and pray regardless of our religion. It was less of a prayer service and more of a torture as we fought hard to not faint during that time. I am not targeting any particular religion here coz I am sure it would have been the same if I had joined any other religion-based school. The point is why ain't we given a choice? Why is that since we are kids we are forced to follow rituals without providing us the rational approach? I understand that when we are toddlers we cannot make such decisions but atleast our parents should have a say whether they want their kids to pray or not.

All the while I was in school the prayer sessions made me aggressive coz no one told me why was there a need to pray 3 times a day- morning, afternoon and the end of the school. I instead resorted to being stubborn. I never closed my eyes while praying and always looked out of the window. I never joined my hands in the manner I was supposed to. I always gossiped with my friends during the prayer distracting them even. I am not telling this again coz I am proud of it, but when you don't explain a kid the whole idea of thanking and apologizing God all while even when you haven't done anything wrong you cannot expect anything better.

After I was out of the school I was glad that I didn't have to pray any longer but then I noticed that my life did not change after the transition from praying to not-praying. I still lived the similar constant life. At that stage of my life I was Agnostic- confused about the existence of God. Gradually other things started making me sick like when a student never thinks of God the entire year but will never forget to pray the night before the exam or when a man whose vocabulary consists more of abusive words then the articles of the English language never fails to go to a temple every Saturday or when my parents force me to pray only before important events like exams etc. Basically this lead me to believe that God is simply a hypothetical character in our minds to whom with can go to and say sorry to clean our evil deeds. After that God didn't exist for me and at that stage of my life I was an Atheist- a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings.

But this does not mean I have anything against the theists- believers in God, coz I am sure they might be having their own reasons for it. I respect it when my parents or friends visit a temple or a church its just if I go with them I go without any faith coz the whole idea seems irrational to me.

P.S. I repeat you are allowed to differ :P

Random Rantings: Summer 2010, IPL...

I finished my semester 2 exams and performed hopelessly bad in economics and maths with bright chances of flunking! But after exams its always like Raat Gayi Baat Gayi :P Planned out a day trip with my college pals to Alibaug and here are few pics...
 Sea Face :)
 Me in the pink cap :P
 Friends who make college lectures bearable :D
 Tour Guiding in process, I wasn't interested in listening to history so was busy clicking pics! ;)
 Picture perfect...

 Small ferry in which we traveled...
 Read more about this place here.

After what seems like ages I am out from the so-called writer's block although I don't consider myself much of a writer :P 

IPL is back with a bang! I am supporting Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Banglore, Deccan Chargers, Delhi Daredevils and Chennai Superkings in that order. So you see I basically don't support the teams owned by the bollywood celebrities. Ah! Even I don't know why :P Two more teams will be introduced next year and the season will go on for 94 days!!! Modi is such a greedy ass I tell you. Does he think that people got no work to simply sit and watch his IPL? It will simply ruin the charm...

P.S My new blog avtaar with a super cool header all thanks to the super ossum SID :)

Karthik Calling Mature Audience!

I somehow managed to grab hold of the movie Karthik Calling Karthik. Not here to provide you with another movie review coz it might simply spoil the suspense of the film. But its sort of an open fact that intelligent films don't work in India and I have a feeling that this film might also go unrecognized. It almost kills when movies like A Wednesday, Aamir, Mumbai Meri Jaan etc fail to grab public attention and on the other hand Singh Is King is entitled highest grosser ever! Indeed times have changed and small and quality films are being noticed.

KCK is taken up an issue which as far as my knowledge goes no bollywood movie has ever touched before. So its kind of fresh yet I won't call it brilliant coz it fails to grab complete viewer attention. Trust me I have watched this movie with a maniac audience so try and watch the this movie with a neutral mind. And if you are as intelligent as me you might find out the suspense before it comes out :P

P.S I have a soft corner for Farhan Akhtar o_O

P.P.S And I also think he is hot! ;)

Girls Don't Come With A "HELP YOURSELF" Tag!!!

This is to all those guys who can't keep their penis in their pants or rather their eyes to themselves. I may sound a bit feminist today, so be it! If this is all it takes to get all the male species brains back.

A big Fuck You to...

1. to the ones taking advantage of the crowd and considering it heavenly to brush their shoulders against a girl's or walking past her and dashing her. Oh come on! Do you like think that we were born yesterday and can't differentiate between what's deliberate and what's not?

I face a similar situation almost everyday! I stay in the suburbs of Mumbai and travel everyday to town for college by train. There hasn't ever been a single day as far as I remember since college started that I have walked peacefully upto the railway platform without being dashed by anyone. I know its peak hours and people are darn late to work but hello! can't you see the ample of space around that you HAVE TO brush against me?

2. to the ones taking advantage of a crowded public transport bus and rubbing their penis against the female passengers. I mean seriously GO GET A LIFE! Just coz you can't get a fuck for yourself doesn't mean you fool around in public!

I myself haven't been in such a disgusting situation but heard a lot from my female friends.

3. to those who can't shut the fuck up every time they see a girl passing by. I have been a victim to the most outrageous comments passed.

4. to those who in one long stare imagine the girl in all possible positions! I know its sort of a universal rule that you check out a hot person of the opposite sex but hell no! I don't check out your tools. Can't you like limit yourself to a simple glance or to the face? Coz there is no chance that you can have that girl.

5. to those who blame girls for their so-called INDECENT dressing. Guys can freely roam in their shorts and vest. Then why the hypocrisy? huh?

But no! I am not at all mad at all males around in fact it is us, girls to be blamed! I have all mentioned in the post whats been happening with me but never have I gathered the guts to go and revolt against it. But trust me next time I see a guy staring at me in restaurant I am so going and slapping him. No, I wont ask him whether he has a mother or sister at home, coz probably he has and has never paid respect to them!

First time ever on my blog presenting an OSSUM friend as a guest blogger! I didn't have to pester him or anything to get him to write a post on my blog, he agreed instantly unlike most who throw tantrums :P Well I am in love with his blog SIDOSCOPE, where he has written on themes ranging from humor to thriller stories. And if there is this one blogger I want to see as a novelist, it is SID coz trust me he can write the most awesome stories. My favorite being WHAT IF. I will stop yapping now and let you guys read what he has specially written for my blog! :)


Long long long time ago when the Gods and Demons were busy churning the ocean, a dangerous item came on the planet from the depth of ocean, deadlier than the halahal (The poisonous poison that Lord Shiva had to drink...poor Lord) and even powerful than the bramhastra (The ultimate weapon of Mass destruction. shss don't tell America we Indians know it), it was called Television, the ultimate weapon of mass distraction.

Gods fear it, the demons hated it. Both started dodging the idiot box in heaven and hell and finally they decided to send it on Earth and both Gods and Demons secretly decided they will not talk about it. They simply whistled as the television hit planet earth, you see back them Mr. Flintstone Dagade and his family were happy living in stone age, chasing dinosaurs for two days and then enjoying a feast on third day but wallah, they found television and Mrs. Dagade (the stone age super wife) got busy watching it and slowly they stopped chasing the dinosaurs and started eating the green green things that grew on their doors, true story.

The dinosaurs saddened with no one chasing them and started committing suicide. When the television showed the people only 1411 dinosaurs left, no one listened (maybe because back then there was no sound in television, who knows?) and dinosaurs died down and humans started sitting too much on their butts, so lost their tail, true history of television, at least I believe it is true, sacchi.

Television nowadays is the biggest curse lying around the house, if there is anyone in the world who shows wrong thing at the wrong time, its television. I always suspected television had a big conspiracy against me since childhood.

Whatever I used to watch since childhood, even if it science channel where they used to show wild animals and stuff, but the moment my dad used to step into the room, all of the sudden without any prior warning, it would show condom ads. Total awkward silence, between me and my dad.

The curse has no ending, imagine after spending a complete day at the office, you come home and sit down for hot dinner served by your mom. You are putting the first morsel in your mouth, just for curiosity you peep what your mom is watching for last two hours, she may be watching the age old historical saga of some queen or even the undying feudal human torture methods (read: sobby sobby soaps with 2567th episode airing tonight) but the moment you peep in, the television chooses to show you… toiler cleaner advertisement, with the worlds most dirty toilet on display. The torture doesn’t end here, not satisfied with the look of disgust on your face, it chooses to zoom into the toilet at the microscopic level to show you the germs wriggling in the toilet, all this while with the morsel in your hand and a look of disgust on your face, and then use their brand new toilet cleaner with some stupid technology (I always wonder how the liquids get technology?) into the toilet bowl and flush it. Aaaah by then, you are also so flushed.

There are some elite marshal arts associated with the television. My little bro who has mastered the art of flipping 1001 channels (its an expression, I am not that rich to buy so many channels) in the little window of commercial breaks often comes all of the sudden, snatches the remote from my hand, turns out some million channels and again gets my channel by the end of commercial break, exact. So proud I am of his skills, I tried doing it once. I flipped channel during commercial break, saw a old chinese chu ha movie, was seeing the fight scene, I forgot the channel which I was watching previously. I asked my bro, he looked at me as if he has seen an alien. Garn.

There is another elite ancient marshal arts which my mom is expert in, watching two different soaps on two different channels, in two different language in the same time slot. I have to learn this trick, she doesn’t teach me, they all laugh at me when I ask them.

After the television spoiled half the world, the devil decided to send one more companion, the television remote controller. Have you taken part in house Olympics with wrestling being primary sport and the winning trophy? the television remote.

I have also seen houses hosting treasure hunt competition where the younger sibling hides the television remote and the elder one searches for it. It usually ends with both getting good spanking and mom/dad snatching the remote and tuning to news.

I am hunting for the gateway to heaven that they showed last week on a news channel, so I can throw the idiot box out there, but last time someone did it, the box returned the same way and he definitely heard a giggle and a thunder from the other end.

The universe is planning a big plot against humanity, but we are busy searching for channel no. 9 on the idiot box.

Does Ishqiya falter only because it doesn't provide the audience with another boy meets girl shitty romantic tale?

After having watched a series of TYPICAL bollywood movies where the boy likes a girl, girl likes boy but there is always this barrier in between them which they try overcoming during the course of movie. Once that is done, the boy kisses girl and they sing happy songs ever after...

So just because variety is the spice of life and mainly I was bored of the usual drama so I decided to go and watch ISHQIYA.

Well definitely the movie has some charm which keeps you alive throughout the movie. The main reason for some disliking the movie can be its language. I mean if you suck at hindi then this movie is definitely a NO! My daily conversation includes 90% hindi (yeah I live in Mumbai ;P ) yet I failed to get some of the humor in the film. But the ones which I did manage to grab were hilarious! Don't blame the movie for its abusive language or vulgarity, the movie was set in a village if you didn't notice. On a whole awesome acting by every actor, great plot and good music. My favorite being Ibn-e-batuta. I won't bore you by discussing the story and the plot, go and check it out by yourselves! It is a refreshing change trust me :) RATING 3/5

BRAgging all the way! :P

Are you wondering whats wrong with the chicks in your facebook friend list? Are you wondering why the fuck are they putting up colours as their status messages? Well my dear friends I am here to clear your mind. As it is female gender is hard to decipher! :)

Of all I know this was started to spread breast cancer awareness. So as a part of it many facebook users (obviously females) received a message to put up their BRA color as a status update! Can you fucking beleive that? I mean you can give me one plain simple reason how this can spread awareness and I call myself a dumbass! It simply helped guys drooling over their monitor screens. nothing else dont you agree?

Gathered a few case studies for you:

Case 1

Here are few guys caught behind the facebook wall gossiping the current affairs.

Mr. A : The color thing is totally stupid!

Mr. B comments:
I dunno about you, but i'll always support the cause for healthy boobs ;)
Trust me, it's for our benifit.

(wtf? :O atleast guys don't be so open enough with your pervie thoughts! )

Case 2

Here is a girl who sort this as an oppotunity to flaunt all her colorful lingerie in her wadrobe which she otherwise couldn't show off!

Miss. A : 10th january, 9am Baby pink...........!!!! ;)

Miss. A : 10th january, 3pm Black :P

Miss. A : 10th january, 8pm White :)

(Even I am yet to figure out the reason why this girl changes so often? :S )

Didn't all this amuse you?
So how about?
leopard print? naah?
goofy smile? damn!
fluorescent color? still no? well you suck!

P.S-My blog revived! yay! :D
P.P.S- I am a little slow to comment on your blog maybe...but I definately will be around soon!
P.P.P.S- How many of you actually did expect a picture in this post? :P
