Oh my gawd!! I have lost my ability to think!! I know it does sound very strange but yes. Apart form listening to the same songs in my MP3 player again and again I have not been doing anything creative!! I know cheh!! I need to get a life and fast. So now that I’m back home,(ok I can blog only when I’m home, you could have guessed so much) I have been watching a lot of those good old videos on You tube.
I was surprised that I could stil remember almost all of the lyrics of Mile Sur mera Thumara. Why don’t we have songs like that these days? Where have all the good ol people gone? I was surprised to see Bala Murali Krishna on TV. These days you don’t get to see him. Even if its Diwali or Pongal or some auspicious day like that you get to see a lot of other Great(yuck) people. Last time I tried watching Ongal Diwali Sirappu Nigalchi(it was Chi!!) I got to see a lot f dumb actors lying how good they were at school. Hell if you were good at school you would be somewhere else now dancing around in the cheapest suit possible and still get paid millions for it.
Now when was the last time you saw Kamal Hasan in an Natinal Integration song? By coincidence thebus in which I was travelling home form Coimbatore had a TV and they were showing Vasool Raja M.B.B.S the change in how he looks was like OMG!! I was seriously wondering if he needs help.
Mile sur Mera Thumhara!! National Integration has become a thing of the past. People now are not bothered anymore about what our culture is? Are the TV shows that we see these days so much related to culture( I am not even commenting of the quality of movies that we get to watch these days). Every Amul ad or even the old asian paints Ad that used to come on had some part that had the National Integration in it.People considered the Indian Army an integral part of all the ad’s.Now all we can hear ppl talk is about how their state is better than others. Seriouls ppl all I can say is get a life. Where did all the SST(social studies if you don’t remember the subject) go?? All the maps we drew and all the maps we bought for fun go? I still remember my big bunch of India Rivers and India States. Boy did we have a fun time coloring them!!
I am going to stop here. Somebody told me that all my blogs are saddistic and I think it becoming true. I always have started thinking why is the world so crappy?? 😡 Cheh!!
Well at last it does feel good.. Mama Am home!! After two whole months of no internet(orkut,gtalk and wordpress) at all, now am like a free bird. Well after going through my blog surfer tab I do find that lots of people have lost their creative thinking. Are all of you staring at the computer for 10 hours a day with a coffee mug in one hand?? Life has changed to a lot of people after the Mumbai terror attacks i guess, but suddenly everybody’s jumped into the bandwagon and have started writing about it. From the thina thanthi(I now read it in the morning Tea Kadai) to the DW tv that I get through my satellite televeision at HOME everybody’s going on about the Mumbai terror attacks. People I know this is something big but, please start thinking about what you write. Inida Pakistan relationship blogs have become very common these days, especially if you are living in one of the border towns(both sides I must say) and are educated!!
Also I see that people also like to do tags. You can find all forms of obsure tags that ask you which kind of hair color you would like Kareena Kapoor to have to the ones that think they are going to be the questions in the next million dollar american game show. Well yeah it could also be remade with SRK and telecasted in the subcontinent next year. Coming to that I never was able to watch even one episode of Kya App Panchvi Pass…. It was never to the calliber of KBC.
Wow those days when KBC started I still remember there was a guy in my school who used to play KBC all the time. He would fgo around people asking questions from the show and ask “Are you Confident,Sure??, Lock kar diya jaaye” not necessarily in the same order. After that I don’t think there have been any game show that has captivated our audience so much. I still remember, as a kid how I argued with Appa to make calls to Junior KBC so that I could (try and) win 1 crore!! Al l what I got for the reply was, “Who do you think pays you telephone bill.” Now I have a phone and the most freakish call I have made from it was to K TV I guess. Thanks to Rik,J C and the hotel where I stayed(for free!!) as soon as I joined job, which had a TV. Well we were that jobless that we were trying out numbers of Neengal Keta Padal types shows and trying to talk. And yeh finally when we got through that guy wanted me to MIMICRY. I told him I could talk like someother person. The guy on the show(wearing on of the reddest T shirt I have seen) asked me who I was going to talk like, I replied my friend JC, and that guy hung up.
Oh my god! Mumbai attacks to K TV, What a connection!!
