I'll be there for u............

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Maaaaaaaaaaaan! i just love this sitcom like so many others. Become a part of my life now. Love joey the most. I think am in love with him. Man how can someone be so endearing and loving and so cutely foolish! Also i love phoebe.....coz she is amazingly crazyyyyyyyyyy. Wish had a fren like her.

Now after the sitcom, a movie FRIENDS is gonna come. I feel if FRIENDs is ever made in hindi or hinglish or in India, then who will play the the characters of joey, pheobe, rachel, ross, chandler and monica. OK OK no dumb remake like HELLO FRIENDS which came in Zee earlier. Just a freak thought. Am totally confused. But i know for sure that saif ali khan will be perfect for joey. So whom do u think will fit the bill! Tell me ppl........

P.S. For all those people who are feeling the idea of an Indian version of friends as hopeless ok lemme rephrase this a bit....... Imagine its an all indian cast for the sitcom FRIENDS, then whom will it be according to u????

Ethics! Wats that????????

Ethics anbody......NAaah!
Our filmstars and cricketers endorse umpteen number of products. So much so that Sachin Tendulkar is a brand in himself. (almost worth 100 crore) Use of celebrities in advertizing in India has been rampant in India. People look upto the celebrities as they lend a credibility by their association their brand. By recent events force me to think otherwise.

One of the biggest bloopers in can rememeber was the h"HOMETRADE" commercial. Sachin Tendulkar, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan endorsed the fiasco that was home trade. When the whole scam was busted, the celebrities were obviously asked for an explanation it came as a total shock to me when they actually had answers like "I had no idea about the activities of home trade." Hello.....wat on the earth were u doin when u signed the agreements? Such are the people who are considered as role models in India. Sheeeeeeesh!

Recently Coke and Pepsi were accused of having large amounts of pesticide content in them. When the filmstars were asked about their association with products which are considered poisonous their replys ranged from a "No comments to I am under contract, I am not supposed to speak anything to What rubbish,I have been drinking Coke since so long, nothing ever has happened to me!" Ok then the people who painstakingly did all the research are fools as compared to ur knowledge! Duhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!

Now i see Aamir Khan in a new defensive Coke ad in which Coke is trying hard to steer away from the controversy. Sometimes I think public figures in India have absolutely no conscience. How can they associate themselves with products which they know are harmful. I used to hold Aamir Khan in real high esteem, but now i feel he is just one among the crowd.

Here is where i would like to mention Pulella Gopichand. Gopichand refused Pepsi's offer of Crores of rupees to endorse their brand claming that he would never endorse something which he doesn't use himself. Now that's integrity. It is really tough to resist the temptation when crores of money is offered to you. We need more Gopichands..........

This is shocking. I really dunno what to say. First i hear a 17 yr old college galbeing raped by President's Abdul Kalam's guards and now the rape of a swiss diplomat's daughter. Wat the hell!!!!!! *v.v.v.v.v.v.angry* I feel Delhi is one of the most unsafest place for WOMEN in India inspite of being the capital of India. Indians are obsessed with fair skin. Poor Phirangi women who come to tour India always have to take extraa care of themselves from the preeing and staring eyes of 'WE INDIANS". One of the pointers in Lonely planet about India is that Phirangs (women) are actually seen as 'AVAILABLE' and are considered to be easy proposition. Wow! so much of our culture and all such shit! If i rememebr right Mark Waugh had once said if there was a "STARING COMPETITION" amongst various nations, India would win hands down.

Trains in Mumbai always have a cop stationed at a ladies compartment for so-called protection. What will a gal do when protectors become devils. That's wat happened to a female travelling alone in the ladies compartment and this cop attempted to molest her. But fortunately the compartment was adjacent to gents compartment and when the nest stop came she ran towards the nest compartment and then the gents bet the scum to a pulp. A few days ago when I was goin to my college again desperately trying to sleep when my attention was diverted to this group of ladies talking abt the same case which i just mentioned. This is how the conversation went.

Lady 1: u know wat happened the other day at the ladies compartment?

lady 2: Oh yeah i know! bad na! i feel bad for the gal.

lady 1: but u know wat i nowdays dont feel bad for gals. They deserve it. ( Shobha reacts:huh!) They are inviting the problem. U shud see the way they dress up nowadays. all short top and jeans u know! (Shobha again reacts Huh! *shocked*)
......... and then they began a tirade of stories of how they have seen gals wearing "Bad" outfits.

And i was like Duhhhhh! Before i cud open my moith and something to them my station came. I wanted to say that no matter how a gal is dresses in India, every woemn is equally subjected to the risk of rape. Even if one is covered from head to toe, it makes absolutely no difference.

I dont understand this dumb mentality......y are gals always blamed. Y arent the guys reprimanded for their misdoings. Y arent they told to keep their D*** in their pants. Just becoz they get aroused easily, women are advised to dress accordingly. Wat whole load of bull! Also the faulty law system in India gives the men in India ample leeway to commit such heinous acts. Its high time Justice given is soon and prompt. Its high time that delhi police pulls up its act and ensure Delhi is a safe place for women.

P.S. Well i think people commiting such heinous crimes shud be given DEATH PENALTY! Nothin else can stop this menace i feel. When everything else fails fear works! Whaddaya guys think?

Absentminded Me! (*angry*)

Well In the past few months I have been shamelessly forgetting a lot of my frens' bdays which is a very irritating thing to do. Irresponsible, Careless and i can go on and on about myself. I feel disgusted at myself. I have always loved B'days. For me Bdays are special days and I get irritated when people forget to wish me on my B'day. Imagine me doin the same thing! Yucks! I am very angry at myself.

This blog has become an integral part of my life. I love yapping around here and also eagerly await u guys' comments on my various posts. I want to wish all u guys on ur bdays too. But knowing my absent minded behaviour, I am sure I will forget all ur b'Days. Therefore i plan to write ur bday's alongside ur names on my blogroll. In this way i won't (hopefully) forget ur bdays as a momentary galnce will be enuff to remind me of the B'days. I request all u guys to plz write down ur bdays in the comments box. It will be easy for me. Thank u! Byeeeeeeee
Tit for Tat

Well Mumbai heat is killing. and to shop in such heat is a terror. I love shopping. At the end of the day it feels so good seeing the stuff u purchased. Man!!!!!! nothin can replace that feeling. (ppl who disagree and i think there will be lotsa guys here are free to express their comments) But at the same time I'm a very confused shopper, I can never decide on what to buy ultimately. So the person who accompanies me to shop is usually a harassed person coz me always goin in diff shops ultimately buying nothin or I keep on constantly asking them for opinions.

Well today i got a taste of my own pie. Well had accompanied my fren for shopping. Goodness she took 4-5 shops which were at 2-3 diff corners of the city to buy one pair of jeans. Goodness I was famished! I dint shop coz my shopping was almost over and more practical reason....I was almost broke. So somehow controlled my shopping urge. Ultimately I was so bored that don't ask! and then my fren tells me this is the least amount of time she's taken to decide on a particular outfit and I just didnt know wat to say........I was speechless! hehehheheheheheheee

So do ya guys think tht I'll change my shopping habits next time? Naaaah! ;)

All u patriotic Indians out here.......

Guys plzz do chk this out and sign the petition. If u guys are responsible Indians then this is the time to show. Also this is an opportunity to make our (Indian bloggers) felt. Also plzz spread the word around!

Well am immensely glad now tht my exams are over. Nothing can replace the relief u get the moment ur exams get over. Infact everyone in our class started clapping the moment the final bell rang. It was a collective sigh echoed by the whole class.

Now for the best part, Diwali hols. I have always loved Diwali and diwali hols. its always been special for me. Diwali.........have always loved it. Crarckers, New dreses, tht sprinkiling of ganga jal on my head while bathing, and not to forget the compulsory oil bath. I love every bit of it. Sometimes i wonder abt some senseless rituals which had absolutely made no sense to me. being the rebel tht i always been i never did something just because ppl have always been doin likewsie leaving my parents flabbergasted! But now i feel rituals associalted with festivals and all are damn cute, makes my mundane life interesting. ( And by rituals i dont mean superstitions and other stupid beliefs) Also Diwali hols have been special coz my B'day has more often than not coincided with Diwali hols. So its always been tons of shopping, sweets, crackers, etc. and hopefully this time it shudnt be any different. Will be busy this vacations. Am involved in college projects and have finally got an internship. So me will be a working gal for the first time !!!!!!!!! Yippeeeeeeeee.......so wats if its only a trainee thing..........Me excited! But there are ppl (spoilsports) who say u're excited now but later u will be bored and sick to death and wud curse ur job. Well fortunately i don't think tht will happen. Coz tht happens when u do something u don't enjoy, then work sure becomes a drudgery! Journalism has always been a passion and something have always wanted to do. Hope my views aren't too utopian. U guys must be knowing there who sure have been there and done tht! Plzzzzzzz do share ur experiences. Wud love to know tht!

Its been a pointless post. Musings all the way..........

Forward time!

This one's funny! most of u might have read this but I'm stil posting this. have a good laugh anyways!

Don't blame me if you forget your English by the time you are over with

This was an essay written by a person in Bihar for his examination
When he was in class 12.
THE COW. "The cow is a mostly a white lazy animal. Also he is 4
Footed which are connected and therefore he can walk. But all 4 foots are
together. Two are forward and two are afterwards. And because he is a
female, he also give milks, [ but will do so when he is got a
child.]He is same like-God, sacred to Hindus and useful to man but mostly to
milkman. His whole body can be utilised for use. More so the milk.Milk
comes from 4 hanging taps attached to his basement. This is very
special point as other samesize animals like horse dont have any such attachment.

What can it do? Various ghee, butter, cream, curd, and dont forget the
condensed milk and so forth. Also he is useful to cobbler, watermans
and mankind generally. His front motion is slow only because he is of
lazy species. Also his other back motion [ gobar] is much useful to
trees, plants as well as for making flat cakes for cooking and eating
[looks like Pizza ] Cow i! s the only animal that extricates his feeding after
eating. But you move away when the back motion is in motion as it can spray you
from a distance when it falls from a height of 3 to 4 ft as no one
told him to sit when motion is coming. Surprise is it can do both front and
back motion at once and same time she chew with his teeth whom are
situated in the inside of the mouth. He is incessantly in the meadows in
the grass. His only attacking and defending organ is the horns,
specially so when he is got child. This is done by lowing his head whereby he
causes the weapons to be paralleled to the ground of the earth and
instantly proceed with great velocity forwards.He also got a tail also,
situated in the backyard, but not like similar animals. It has hairs on the other
end of the other side. This is done to frighten away the flies which alight
on his cohesive body. He move this end like a tail to hit the flies and
fly them. The palms of his feet! are soft to the touch. So the grasses
head is not crushed. At night time he poses by looking down on the ground
and he shouts. His eyes and nose are like his other relatives. But in
city he moves on road. We want him to move to move on but he does not move
and looks at us. Then we are moved by his look and stop horing otherwise it
can horn us with its weapons Then we move from his near. He also say
moooooo when hungry. We also cook his beef which is tasty to some
but not all will eat this cook. He is the holy Cow because he is with Lord
Krishna when he is playing with his flute standing on one feet and his other
feet is just standing at an angle... His husband also useful to we but only
farming. It is name bull and bad people swear you by its shit when you
talk something they will not believe although cow shit is also same.

We are informed that the candidate passed the exam. and is
now an IAS, is Bihar in somewhere,..[sorry somewhere in Bihar]

Sad......very sad.............hehehehehheheeeeeee

Mirror Mirror

I got this interesting forward which i felt i shud share with ya guys! Read on............
(Have you seen recent advertisement of M/s. SAINT
GOBAIN GLASSES shown in TELEVISION'S - Then you must have known about 2 Way mirror). How to determine if a mirror is 2 way or not (Not a Joke!)Not to scare you, but to make sure that you aware. Many of the hotels and textile showrooms cheat the customers this way & watch privately.
When we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms,changing rooms, etc., how many of you know or sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror i.e., they can see you, but you can't see them). There have been many cases of people installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms or bathroom or bedrooms. It is very difficult to positively identify the surface by just looking at it. So,how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?

Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your finger nail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE mirror.
However, if your finger nail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then

BEWARE, IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR! (there is someone seeing you from the other side). So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It doesn't cost you anything. It is simple to do. This is a really good thing to do. The reason there is a gap on a real mirror, is
because the silver is on the back of the mirror UNDER the glass. Whereas with a two-way mirror, the silver is on the surface.
Keep it in mind!
Make sure and check every time you enter in hotel rooms. May be someone
is making a film on you.
