An Untitled Post

Its been long I blogged here and blogged about my personal life too. Although am suffering from a writers block + laziness so all my intended blog ideas are still pending. Today I will break the laziness pattern and also blog about my personal life and enter a new territory of writing called POETRY. I've never done poetry so spare the criticism if it isn't perfect or even close to being good. But here we go...

Even though we are not sailing smoothly,
Even though there is no perfect connection,
Even though there is no telepathy.

Days go by without hearing each others' voice,
Months go by without seeing each other,
Messages are the only source of contact.

Despite all this I love it when you laugh,
Love it when you giggle,
Love it when you call to say you're scared,
Love it when we argue over stupid things.

You can make anyone laugh with your laugh,
You can make anyone smile with your words,
You can make anyone feel comfortable in your presence,
You can make anyone feel nice about their rotten day,
You can make anyone watch Disney channel,
You can make anyone crave to be with you.

I love you! And I think she knows who it is for.

P.S. I know sucky poetry but did the best I could :S Hope you liked it :D

Who wants to be a millionaire?

I came across this video while checking out my RSS feeds. We have the Indian version of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' in the form of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'.

I think KBC has had only one Crorepati in its life (counting only the adults version and not the kids version and Rs.1 Crore as the ultimate bounty) in the form of Harshvardhan Navathe.

I like this video because the guy is just too smartly confident and it makes you smile.Enjoy :)

National anthem before a movie?

The first movie that I saw outside Delhi was Gupt in Jaipur.My favourite Hindi suspense movie although it was ruined by my brother because he told me who the killer is in the intermission because he happened to know it and wanted the suspense ruined for me too.(Yeah older siblings can be like that!) This was when I was very young,maybe when I was 10.

The second experience happened when I watched Taare Zameen Par in Mumbai. Me and Parinita went for the movie at Chitra. The tickets were cheap as it was the morning show(unlike Delhi,godamn ripoffs here!) and the seats were good and comfortable too.

The usual waiting for the movie to start was taking place when suddenly the national anthem started playing and everyone stood up.I was confused what was happening.There is no national anthem played here before a movie,heck the last time I heard the national anthem before me was in school! Not only was the national anthem playing something new for me but also the feeling of seeing everyone standing up was thrilling.Even the rowdiest of the lot were standing as a mark of respect.

Now I thought,it was just a small theaters thing and it won't happen everytime and not in a multiplex for sure.I was wrong.The national anthem played at PVR too when we went to see Madagascar 2.So it was playing in small and big theaters both and irrespective of the language of the movie.

Am not saying I didn't like it and think it was great.I just think is this the best form of showing respect to your nation,before a movie? I bet not even half of them would even watch the parade on the 26th of January or be up early for the flag hoisting on 15th August.So what is the purpose or the essence of having this national anthem before a movie?

Also,since I've not seen movies anywhere else so would love to hear if the national anthem is played before a movie in your town or no? Even if you're outside India,do you have your national song played before a movie?Would love to know :)

But what about equality?

AIt is around 1.30 PM in Delhi. The heat is at its peak and it is not even May yet. People have been waiting at the bus stop for quite a wh...
