All Hail Queen Asin !!!!!!! December 30, 2008

I thought i grew up and had come of age on my 18th birthday.I also thought the drama of hindi movies could no longer move me and make me feel mushy.
Then suddenly ghajini happened and i did cry bitterly.
It was all because Asin acted so well that i actually thought ‘kalpana’ was someone real.
I saw her and I said to myself, look Mujtaba ,here comes the queen.Much to my amazement , she hails from south and now there is no stopping her.
Though it was a movie that revolved around Amir, but it marked the birth of a next big star Asin. (Kajol , sorry but you will no longer be missed)
You slowly do fall in love with the character of kalpana played by Asin.Such is her potential and charisma.
She potrayed the role of a bubbly, vibrant girl so effortlessly that you for a second think that she is
the character herself. Hats off to you Asin.( She is the only Actress to manage her own website http://www.asinonline.com )
AR Rehman did a fine job though i thought lyrics could have been better.
The movie had awesome music and the track ‘kaise mujhe tum mil gaye’ had the stamp of genius all over it.
A tear trickled down my cheeks when I listened to that song. I cant
remind myself of any song in recent times which happens on such an exact time.There couldn’t have been more appropriate timing for that song.The build up to that song was superb and the acting skills of the protagonists did steal my heart and appreciation. The song flew like a gentle stream and
s rich in melody and emotion.The song happened on a situation which befitted and demanded such a melody.I was impressed.

Though lastly i would say i want to watch the movie again but i am not prepared to go through all that pain all over again. Aamir-Asin…you people are great.

Juno- All I Want Is you December 22, 2008

Written By- Barry Louis Polisar  For Movie -Juno

If I was a flower growing wild and free
All I’d want is you to be my sweet honey bee.
And if I was a tree growing tall and greeen
All I’d want is you to shade me and be my leaves

All I want is you, will you be my bride
Take me by the hand and stand by my side
All I want is you, will you stay with me?
Hold me in your arms and sway me like the sea.

If you were a river in the mountains tall,
The rumble of your water would be my call.
If you were the winter, I know I’d be the snow
Just as long as you were with me, when the cold winds blow.

If you were a wink, I’d be a nod
If you were a seed, well I’d be a pod.
If you were the floor, I’d wanna be the rug
And if you were a kiss, I know I’d be a hug

If you were the wood, I’d be the fire.
If you were the love, I’d be the desire.
If you were a castle, I’d be your moat,
And if you were an ocean, I’d learn to float.

One of ‘The Most’ romantic lyrics i came across, And definately my favourite….I couldn’t stop myself from doing some copy paste job on my blog( something which i refrain myself from doing.)

anyways enjoy

 

Tiger On The Prowl December 18, 2008

Contrary to the national mood, the lucknowites are busy fighting with a different kind of terror.A Tiger was spotted in the streets of Mohanlalganj and gosainganj, the suburbs of Lucknow.
Probably a 2 and a half year old tiger is on a royal visit to the laid-back City and has dined on few stray cows and a couple of blue bulls.The tiger is young — but those set after him are all veterans foresters. The combination is odd. But, forest department has no alternative. The officials heading the combing operation are seniors in the department and the so-called experts in tranquillising wild animals.

No matter even if these seniors are missing the dart each time . But you see they were out of practice for so long. A tiger is a rare sight even in Sariska , dont blame them if they are not prepared , on the contrary give them a national award for creating an atmosphere for tiger to feel safe and grow at such unusual places.
The tiger was sighted for at least half a dozen times on Wednesday ( remember when Rajiv Gandhi went to Ranthmbhor and came back without even seeing a single tiger.Imagine how happy would he have been had he been alive)

There are officials on four elephants chasing the animals and two parties dont even have the tranquillising guns.God knows what will they even do , if they happen to meet the tiger. I guess they are planning to scare the tiger with the elephant.Hehehe.

Had there been any elections in the offing then the tiger could have been used to gain political mileage( you know they use anything ) and afterall tiger makes a good conspiracy theory. The bird brain politician could have blamed the rival party or even Pakistan for the animal to have arrived the capital.But as of now the tiger has no nationality or party affliations.

After a week-long enthralling hide and seek with the tiger, the supposed wildlife experts have come to some entertaining conclusions. That the tiger is very cunning, that it is very alert for its survival and that it is very difficult to trap.I guess they were thinking of tiger to be a petty cat or anything like that. Experts fail to explain how their tranquillising darts, more than 30 used each costing Rs 2,000, have not found the tiger. There have been at least 20 sightings since December 13 but the UP version of Abhinav Bindras could not find the target as huge as a tiger.

 

The Art Of Avoiding December 4, 2008

THE ART OF AVOIDING

I think we all have, at some dark time in our lives, encountered people we would never want to encounter again. I certainly have. They say (please don’t ask me who ‘they’ is as I haven’t the slightest clue) that one can learn something even from the worst experiences. And i definitely have (i do note my obsession with the pronoun ‘I’). So I (yet again!) have devised a few tricks of the trade to avoid those I want to. And being a kind and generous person (just nod that head of yours!), thought of sharing these valuable and extremely handy ways to stay away from a person, without of course, letting that person know that 😀

1. DRH – No, it does not stand for drinking rum with honey. Why would anyone do that in any case? It stands for ‘duck, run, hide’: the three things you should do first when you see the Person U Need To Avoid (henceforth ‘Punta’). Duck – if in a gathering, sit down, bend down, crawl down – anything to avoid being seen. Run – only if you can run. Hide – behind the tallest, largest thing around (look for me if out of all options). DRH is only applicable, however, if Punta hasn’t spotted you yet.

2. Amnesia – local or general – In case you’ve met Punta just once or twice before, and it is too late for DRH, then simply look through. If Punta comes up to you, act as if you don’t recognize him/ her (local amnesia). If s/he is annoying enough to remind you of the exact circumstances of the unfortunate meeting, then say that it wasn’t you. Then if Punta asks who you are, say that you do not know (general amnesia). Usually, by the end of this conversation, you join the Punta list of your Punta, and it is their turn to become amnesic. Problem solved!

3. IADSThe ‘I am depressed‘ syndrome – If Punta is someone you’ve met a number of times (maybe an old college mate/ colleague etc) and amnesia will not work, then IADS is a safe option. Say that you are not well, emotionally and physically, and do not want to talk to anyone as of now. If Punta is bugging enough to pester you to discuss your ‘problems’, then graduate to IASS – ‘I am suicidal syndrome’, saying “If i talk about it now, it will be too much for me to handle and i would want to kill myself then, so please just leave me alone”. Unless that person has homicidal tendencies, i think you will be safe for the time being!

4. BFF to rescue – If you aren’t an actor enough to pull off IADS, then this is for you. Catch hold of your nearest acquaintance and start talking like you two are ‘best friends forever’. Best would be to talk about things you know Punta has no clue of, or would rather not comment on. Like talking about the value of faith in a relationship and how one has to be like the biggest losers to cheat on his/ her partner, if you know that Punta is seeing 3 people at the same time! In case Punta catches you alone, then do not worry. BFF can still come to your rescue. Just tell him/ her how you are super late to meet this friend of yours and just have no time to spare. If the situation demands, then turn your boss into your BFF.

5. Famous Five – What if Punta refuses to go even after all this? What do you do? Do not panic. There are a couple of things you can do, which will make sure Punta considers you Punta for the rest of his/ her life. Here i enumerate most effective and famous five of those:
One – Eat something that disgusts you and throw up all over Punta.
Two – Borrow Punta’s cell and make that long distance call to a friend you have so much to catch up with. Or maybe your bf/ gf – whichever is gonna cost more.
Three – Sing at the top of your voice while walking along with Punta on a busy road. But do it only if sure Punta will be embarrassed and not join you instead.
Four – Dig your nose and wipe your finger in Punta’s clothes.
Five – If even that does not work, just tell Punta, “Dude, your clothes stink and are filthy I can’t be with you or I’ll puke yet again” and scoot!

I hope these will help you while dealing with all kinds of Punta. Now that you have a basic idea, maybe you can think of some tricks too. Do share them with me. Happy avoiding!
Ciao.

Disclaimer – If this post puts me in your Punta list, then i just want you to know that i was super bored and had a toothache. Here is a golden opportunity to show how benevolent and sympathetic you are!

 

No place for them in our nation December 2, 2008

Muslim organisations in Mumbai have decided that Muslim cemeteries in Mumbai, where unclaimed bodies are usually buried, will not open its doors for the last rites of these  ‘so called’  urban jehadis.
A move that has called for an out right salute from myside.The muslim organisations have taken a nice step which is so unlike their behaviour. It is an uncharacteristic move and deserve appreciation from my side.
I felt happy and they are justified in doing so. Islam , as i learned , teaches us to respect our nation. We even put the nation’s soil on our face (tayam-mum) which is only alternative to ‘wuzu’ ( a state of total cleanliness in which we can offer namaz). When we value our nation so much then how should we spare people who attacked us.They should be denied the martyrdom they seek and even a burial place

We believe that “Hubul Watn e Minal Emaan” means “love of one’s country is part of faith”. Its Part of our culture to love our nation.The fanatics should no longer represent the face of our faith. The sensible and just people  are the real representatives. We should stand and let ourselves be counted.It is high time we seperate ourselves from psycho terrorists because our silence shall bring us in their category. A category to which we certainly, do not belong.

 

May The Dawn Be Near December 1, 2008

The horror of terror has grown huge in stature in the past few years. It has reached places which were thought unreachable a little while ago.I wish it should all end now.People say it is darkest before dawn. I ask isin’t it dark enough already. Shouldn’t the dawn be somewhere near.

I am a simple man of simple pleasure. I have lead an ordinary life and want a simple death for myself. I dont want an abrupt and unromantic end like a gun shot on my head from a mental terrorist. Is it too much of a wish ?

A big bad thing happened in mumbai, the incident ,no matter how devastating it may be for some families, would reduce to only a spicy story to some.The blame game shall start and sacrifice and the loss of life of innocents shall be used as a method of gaining individual points.The politicians in alligation mode shall treat this as statistics and wrong people will suffer.The worst part of the terror aftermath is the disintegration of society and the fallout of the social fabric which is sacred to us.This would reveal the cold face of our society, or should i say our cold society shall heat up for some time only to become colder than before.

Lastly , my heartfelt condolences to those families which lost someone dear to them coz they know the value of a life which would only be counted as an insignificant  number among the head count in a ridiculous government file.
