Big B rulz....

Hello world !!!
"Life mein aadmi aisa sirf doich time bhagta hai,
yah ho Olympic ka race ya phir Police ka case."
Translates to ->
"In life man runs like this only on two instances,
either its an Olympic race or Police chase."

Vintage Amitabh Bachan dialogue in Amar, Akbar, Anthony.
Big B dialogue delivery is like nothing seen on the Indian screen.
His thick voice complimented the dialogues perfectly.
Another favourite dialogue in Sholay ->
"Tumhara naam kya hai Basanti?"

Although Big B continues to act in movies now,
I've not seen any since i last saw him in "Hum".
I still got a hero's image about him and cant think of seeing
him an any other role whatsoever. Guess Im still stuck back in time.

All his old movies be it Kaalia, Zanjeer, Coolie, Abhimaan, Bombay to Goa,
Mr. Natwarlal, Don, Kala Phattar, Dostana, Shakti, Hera Pheri, Sholay
Laawaris, Sharaabi, Namak Halal, Gambler, Agneepath are classics.
I never get tired of seeing them anytime.

Big B rulz....

Cheers !!!

Hello world !!!
Nothing to blog about.
Pretty dull day.
Its been thunderstorm and lightning for the last two evenings.
Pretty much brought the temperatures down.
Dunno if its going to rain again today ?
Got stuck for two hours in the rain.
Guess gotta buy a new jacket for the monsoons.
I used to earn 10k and fall short for money,
now i get double the amount but still fall short.
Cant understand the logic. Guess Im a compulsive spendthrift.
Gotta control my expenditure.
Have a nice week folks !!!
Cheers !!!

Hello world !!!
Another week-end ...
Me remember one our seniors saying this-"Another Saturday night"
when we went to his house for a party on Saturdays when I was a teenager.
There used to be lots of fun, games, cards, jokes, sing song sections
apart from drinks and cooking food mostly Barbeques in summers.
But nowadays the young kids only want to drink and fight,
they dont enjoy the drink; the drink enjoys them most of the time.
Had been for a Barbeque party y'day at my friend Sam's place.
There was Mutton chops, Fish and Beef.
I landed there from office pretty late at 10 pm
and staright away given the task to handle the Barbeque.
Uff just did'nt get time to taste any meat myself,
serving all the hungry souls. But it was nice after a long time.
So what are your plans for the weekend folks ???
Have a nice week-end !!!
Enjoy. Cheers !!!

You are sensitive

Hello world !!!

Just blog hopping y'day on some of my favorite blogs
where i came across a Birthday predictor on GS's blog.
Quite interesting. Although i dont believe in this mostly,
but the result it threw up was quite descriptive of my character.

"You are sensitive, but your feeling stay somewhat repressed."

"You have a compelling manner that can be dominating in many situations."

These statements are quite true.

Its Thursday - tomorrow Friday another week-end coming up.
Its become really hot this summer in Bangalore.
Temperatures are touching 36 degrees. Very dry and arid.
Hope the monsoons hit soon to give a welcome relief from
this sweltering heat. Somehow Goa was much better,
although its much humid and you keep sweating.
Missing Goa - the sun, the sand , the sea, the seafood.

Your Birthdate: January 28
Your birth on the 28th day of the month (1 energy) adds a tone of independence and extra energy to your Life Path.
The number 1 energy suggest more executive ability and leadership qualities than you path may have indicated.
A birthday on the 28th of any month gives greater will power and self-confidence, and very often a rather original approach.

Unlike much of the other 1 energy, this birthday is one that endow with the ability to start a job and continue on until it is finished.
You may prefer to use the broad brush, but you can handle details as well.
You are sensitive, but your feeling stay somewhat repressed.
You have a compelling manner that can be dominating in many situations.

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

Im Back

Hello world !!!!
Im back ... after being away for five days.
Seems like a long time ... I missed blogging ...
Had a wonderful little vacation...
Attended a wedding, a christening ...
met lots of old friends... Feels good.
Sitting by the riverside with beer, fish n chips
idling away doing nothing just gazing at the stars in the sky,
the coconut trees, fisherfolk in the passing boats - nothing like it.
Goa is truly relaxing. It puts your mind to rest from
all the hustle bustle in life. I wanted to stay longer,
but guess I for one never get tired of Goa.
Goa - sun, sand, sea and seista.
Goa - 365 days on a holiday !!!
Cheers !!!

Bombay meri jaan

Hello world !!!
Bombay now called Mumbai...
This city has left an undeniable mark in my life.
Right from childhood I used to visit this city
and everytime get fascinated by the crowds,
the local train, the vada pav, double decker buses,
Bollywood, Cross maidan, Azad maidan, the suburbs, the slums,
India Gate, Mount Mary, Siddhi vinayak, Haji ali ....
Bombay has got so many colors,
the city just does not seem to stop, time just flies.
Everyday it accomodate more and more people.

They say -
"If a man learns t olive in Mumbai,
he can live anywhere in this planet."

Another -
"A man eager to work never starves in Mumbai"

Its been almost 3 years since I've been to Mumbai.

One nice song from the film C.I.D starring Dev Anand
and sung by Mohd. Rafi and Geeta Dutt
about Bombay which i was listening to y'day ->

"Bombay meri jaan"
Aye dil hai mushkil jeena yahan
Zara hat ke zara bach ke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan
Ha haa, ha ho ho, ho hi haa ha haa
Hm hm hm hm, hm hm hm , hm hm hm hm hm
Aye dil hai..
(Kahin building kahin traame, kahin motor kahin mill
Milta hai yahan sab kuchh ik milta nahin dil) -2
Insaan ka nahin kahin naam-o-nishaan
Zara hat ke zara bach ke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan
Aye dil hai..
(Kahin satta, kahin patta kahin chori kahin res
Kahin daaka, kahin phaaka kahin thokar kahin thes) -2
Bekaaro ke hain kai kaam yahan
Zara hat ke zara bach ke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan
Aye dil hai..
(Beghar ko aawara yahan kehte has has
Khud kaate gale sabke kahe isko business) -2
Ik cheez ke hain kai naam yahan
Zara hat ke zara bach ke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan
Aye dil hai..
(Bura duniya woh hai kehta aisa bhola tu na ban
Jo hai karta woh hai bharta hai yahan ka yeh chalan) -2
Tadbeer nahin chalne ki yahan
Yeh hai Bombay, yeh hai Bombay, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan
Aye dil hai mushkil jeena yahan
Zara hat ke zara bach ke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan
Aye dil hai aasaa jeena yahan
Suno mister, suno bandhu, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan
Aye dil hai mushkil jeena yahan
Zara hat ke zara bach ke, yeh hai Bombay meri jaan

Hello world !!!
I've got a friend who used to always call me or vice -versa.
But last week, we had some misunderstanding;
from then on she is not ready to speak to me at all.
I tried calling her and explaining but to no avail.
She has asked me not to call her from now on.
Im really lost. Without any fault,
she is behaving as if I've commited a crime.
Dunno what to do. Any suggestions folks ???
Have a nice day !!!

Go karting !!!

Hello world !!!
Went Go karting last week.
My first time.
It was really cool. But my kart
was in real bad shape, the accelerator pedal
would not stop accelerating even after i left it.
Somehow I managed to control with the brakes.
Hope to again try my hand it this week-end.
Quite addictive sport. Good to see small kids
driving so fast on the circuit. Guess Narain Karthikeyan's
entry into F1 has fired up lots of kids to take up this sport.
Y'day watched Arsenal vs. Liverpool.
Arsenal played well and won quite convincingly 3-1.
Although Arsenal have lost the premiership tilte this year,
their young players show lots of promise.
Im quite impressed with Cesc Fabregas and Van Persie.
These two youngsters are really great.
I was quite disappointed with Liverpool.
They continue their poor run in the premiership.
Hope they play well in the Champions leg finals in Istanbul.
Have a nice week ahead folks !!!
Cheers !!!

Hello world !!!
Megadeth - a heavy metal band who sing sane
about the environment, warfare, crime, pollution
and all the insane things going around in the world.
Usually i dont listen much to heavy metal but this
band has taken me by storm.
Headed by Dave Mustaine who was kicked out
of Metallica - this band is kickass with hard hitting lyrics.
Must listen songs ->
1. Angry again.
2. Sweating bullets.
3. Countdown to extinction.
4. Youthanasia
5. Symphony of destruction.

Have fun. Cheers !!!

Right now listening to Sweating bullets -->

Hello me...meet the real me.
And my misfits way of life.
A dark black past is myMost valued possession.
Hindsight is always 20-20,
But looking back it’s still a bit fuzzy.
Speak of mutually assured destruction?
Nice story...tell it to reader’s digest!!!

/chorus/Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety’s attacking me, andMy air is getting thin.
I’m in trouble for the thingsI haven’t got to yet.
I’m chomping at the bit,
and myPalms are getting wet, sweating bullets.

Hello me...it’s me again.
You can subdue, but never tame me.
It gives me a migraine headache
Thinking down to your level.
Yea, just keep on thinking it’s my fault
And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance.
Mankind has got to knowHis limitations.

/chorus/Feeling claustrophobic,
Like the walls are closing in.
Blood stains on my hands and
I don’t know where I’ve been.
I’m in trouble for the things
I haven’t got to yet.
I’m sharpening the axe and my
Palms are getting wet, sweating bullets.

Well, me...it’s nice talking to myself,
A credit to dementia.
Some day you too will know my pain,
And smile it’s blacktooth grin.
If the war inside my head
Won’t take a day off I’ll be dead.
My icy fingers claw your back,

Here I come again./chorus/Feeling paranoid
True enemy or false friend?
Anxiety’s attacking me
And my air is getting thin
Feeling claustrophobic,
Like the walls are closing in.
Blood stains on my hands and
I don’t know where I’ve been
Once you committed me
Now you’ve acquitted me
Claiming validityFor your stupidity
I’m chomping at the bit
I’m sharpening the axe
Here I come again, whoa!Sweating bullets

Hello world !!!

Some of the things I've started to believe in(after experience) -->

# Every dog has his day.(Har kutte ka din aata hai.)

# The higher you rise, the bigger you fall.

# What goes around comes back around to you.

Hello World !!!
Had a relaxing week-end.
Caught up with much needed sleep.
Saturday went to a pub to watch some EPL.
Southhampton vs. Norwich City
Bot hare fighting for relegation.
It was a see-saw game tied at 3-3 till the 80the minute,
until Camara for Southhampton came with a winner.
All four teams are i.e Southampton, norwich city, Crystal palace
and West Bromwich Albion contnue to fight the relegation battle.
Chelsea won 2-0 against Bolton Wanderers to claim
the EPL title after a gap of 50 years.
Arsenal and Man. U continue to fight for 2nd place.
It would have been so good and exciting if all three or 4-5 teams
would have fought for the title.
Tuesday Liverpool take on Chelsea in the Champions league
semi-final. First semis being 0-0, this is one game
Liverpool have to win after losing 3 times
to Chelsea this season already. C'mon Liverpool U can do it.
Sunday went to my friends place for lunch.
Had lovely fish curry rice with crabs and squids fry.
Hmmm delicious.
Have a nice week ahead folks.
Cheers !!!
