Rajnikant v/s Amitabh!!

In Facts & Humour on August 26, 2009 at 10:40 AM

Rajnikanth was bragging to Amitabh Bachan one day, “You know, I know everyone. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them.

Tired of his boasting, Amitabh Bachan called his bluff, “OK, Rajini how about Tom Cruise?” “Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it” Rajini said.

So Rajini and Amitabh Bachan fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise’s door, And sure enough, Tom Cruise shouts: — “Thalaiva! Great to see you!

You And your friends come right in and join me for lunch!” …Although impressed, Amitabh Bachan is still skeptical.

After they leave Cruise’s house, he tells Rajini that he thinks Rajini knowing Cruise was Just lucky. “No, no, just name anyone else” Rajini says ..”President Obama”,

Amitabh Bachan quickly retorts …”Yes”, Rajini says, “I know him. And off they go.

At the White House, Obama spots Rajini on the tour and motions him, saying, :—-“Rajini, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let’s have a cup of coffee first and catch up”.

Well, Amitabh Bachan is much shaken by now, but still not totally convinced. After they leave the White House grounds, he implores him to name anyone else.

“The Pope,” Amitabh Bachan replies …”Sure!” says Rajini, “My folks are from Italy and I’ve known the Pope a long time”.

Rajini and Amitabh Bachan are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Rajini says, “This will never work. I can’t catch the Pope’s eye among all these people.

Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I’ll come out on the balcony with the Pope.” And he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican ..

Sure enough, half an hour later Rajini emerges with the Pope on the balcony.

But by the time Rajini returns, he finds that Amitabh Bachan has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.

Working his way to Amitabh Bachan’s side, Rajini asks him, “What happened?”

Amitabh Bachan looks up and says, “I was doing fine until u and the pope came out on the balcony and the Italian man next to me said,

Who’s that on the balcony with Rajini?

Feelings, Why do we have them?

In All Stuff in here. on August 18, 2009 at 9:45 AM

Parting. Such bizzare events in one’s life. You cannot avoid them. You cannot bear them. Why is it that partings have to happen. Why is it that you cannot stay with your loved ones? Why is life so rude? All these feelings, and even more, in true poetic ‘andaaz’

Gham-e-judaai gham-e-ishq ko bhi par kar jaata hai,

Hanstay hue ko aisa bura yeh rulaata hai,

Teri yaad har pal mujhe aayegi jaaneman,

Ab toh yeh gham hi hai jo uthata hai, sulata hai…

Letting someone go is not an easy task you know what happens when you are left all alone, in your solitude misery. Few lines to explain that situation, when a loved one is gone, far away:

Aaj phir teri yaadon pe ashk bahana hai,

karna hai yaad tujhe, aur apni yaad bhi dilana hai,

Tu na jaane kis tarah bitaye yeh lamhe intezaar ke,

dekh kar ek jhalak teri woh saare gham bhulana hai,

Aankhon ke jharokon mey chipe hain woh khwaab saare,

In palkon ki shikayat pe, aaj wahi khwaab inhe dikhana hai,

Rakh li hain yaadein kahin pe ek saugat samajh kar,

Pal do pal ki tanhayi mey un lamho ko bhi guzar jaana hai,

Tut kar bikharta hun har pal tere bagair ab toh,

Bas sochta rehta hun, is dard ka anjaam kab aana hai,

Aaj phir teri yaadon pe ashk bahana hai…

The greatest of all hard feelings, the feeling of parting, of getting separated. Thats all about it. Yet there’s much more to it.

No topic today..

Okies. Beautiful pictures na.I know. I didn write my morining blog today. Feeling very low. Down with cold, cough and throat infection(OMG!!). I was jus pondering over this thought for quitesometime now..”what can be an interesting topic to write about”. And then nothing very interesting came up. My friends are of no help in such situations as I dont get comments on my blog which would inspire me and provide with topics.

After such beautiful pics, Its quite natural that the mind is filled with ecstacy for sometime. And I dont wanna destroy such beautiful feelings with some nonsense real-life blah blah! Beauty is just natural, all the time. I remember this incident when i had to stay up all night just 2 watch sunrise! It was with a friend of mine, when we roamed around the city till 2 A.M and den lied on the beach till sunrise.(beleive me thats true). God! That was a feeling, truly one of a kind.  Watching sunrise in yerada beach is one of my favourite things to do.

The latest news around is about SRK getting bumped up at US airport for some reason. I don’t understand the reason that should not have happened! Imagine some american superstar in India. If he goes through some airport checking, and the system shows some problem with him. the airport/customs guy doesn’t care for who he is and will definitely ask him to come for further checking. For him, he is just another person, a foreigner, with whom the computer system has a problem. And even if he claims hez a GOD overseas, its not going to create much difference for the customs guy. All in all, stars should also learn to co-operate, and not raise political issues and relegion in such matters.

Huh? What am i talking about! Why NEWS? Has my creativity gone dry? Or am i becoming a reporter or some alien? Absolutely not. Just an expression of biews. We have the right to freedom of speech, so why not use it?

Now, talking of beauty, i hope most of us agree on the fact that beauty is natural! And we need not blabber about it anymore. Good day!

Lets get Spiritual…

Truly mesmerizing…A dance so heart touching, pure and divine. Its simply a tonic for the soul. Even a view of such a dance creates such an inner feeling of peace or”sukoon”. Love this culture.

A notable phrase which is true to every word,

Thou may’st measure out thousands of measures of wine,
But, till thou drink it, no joy is thine.

Meaning: “You may possess gallons of wine, but until you drink it, you dont have any pleasure

Similarly we may have belief, respect and may practice theism, but till we explore ourself, we do not get that intoxication of real life.

Soulful lines, for the angel.

It was one mighty weekend! Had a good time lazing around after a week-long job affair. Independence day saw us all lying at home having no business with the country, listening to patroitic songs and trying to show love for the country. However, that is what happens all the time. Just yesterday night was i listening to fever FM on my phone when such a melody striked my ears that i couldn’t help but publish the lines,. So here they come, the lines, in praise of my beautiful, angellic friend, who occupied my mind all the time when the song was playing…

Arz kiya hai,

Kal chaudvi ki raat thi, shab bhar raha charcha tera,

Kuch ne kaha yeh chand hai,

kuch ne kaha yeh chaand hai, kuch ne kaha chehera tera.

Hum bhi wahin maujud the

hum bhi wahin maujud the,

humse bhi sab poocha kiye,

hum hans diye..hum chup rahe,

Manzoor tha parda tera.

Is sehar mey kisse milen, Humse toh choothi mehfilen

Is sehar mey kisse milen

humse toh chooti mehfilen,

Har shaks tera naam le,

Kar shaks tera naam le,

Har shaks deewana tera…

Kuch ne kaha yeh chaand hai, kuch ne kaha…chehera tera…

I dont know how appealing these lines are to other people but they touched my heart for sure, coz they praise the beautiful imaginary friend of mine.

I haven’t pirated lines from a song or from other writers of late, but these lines are irresistble, and it is by these that you gain some inspiration for original work. There is so much to life, so much in life, which is unexplored, for us to discover, for the rest of our lives.

With love in heart, prayer on lips and electricity in mind, here I am, all set for a new week, starting today. Lets make this week a better one.

X-Citement – One day in life.

In Confrontations in life. on August 14, 2009 at 11:57 AM

Why? WHy on earth am i blogging right now? No idea! But its like I am in a great mood, very happy and excited. And u know creative energy flows in at such moments. Ideally, I am a happy-go-lucky person, whom u will rarely find in a bad mood. As they say, “alwayz in high spirits”(spirits guys! MOTIVATION!!);)

Of late this song is jingling in my mind, and I am not able to overcome the effect of its melody – Aahun aahun…. Dont know why m gettin such a wierdo. but again that happens when you are very excited. This is what happens when you call your boss to ask for some task and he says the next task is: “Go home, party and have a great weekend”!! First time experiences thoe, ppl, respect the fresher attitude!

Now lemme post a story. A day in binit’s life. it started with a sound. Yes, my day starts with this phone alarm sound, screaming “getup dog, Its your day!!”. Forcively, I got up, snoozed it, and back to slumber again. Again after 10 mins,(u knw how these alarms are, i wonder what SOAB made ’em). So i finally go up, wid one eye open, and den slowly da other. Day seemed good. One roomie reading newspaper in front of me. I jumped outa bed, roamed a lil and den headed for mah daily chores.

8:30 AM and m dressed and ready. What? Crazy? U r binit, the deep slumber champ I said 2 myself. But den, Bambai nagariya guys! Having nothing to do, I moved outa house wid mah bag. Below-average mumbai day. Less crowd.  So i went walking and had mah breakfast, took a ride and reached workplace. Now again an Irony. 9:15 AM and m at the office, Its all like a set of Aahat here. So silent. Nobody around

I started to write my morning blog. By the time I had finished 2 paragraphs, Prashant my neighbour in office, appeared. We exchanged morning greetings and slowly the place was getting crowded with rizwan, sweta, reema, and all others pouring in. Reema told me about the gfacebook thing and then we discussed some office policies and stuff like that, which u wont be interested in.

Arnd 10:30 AM, got a SMS frm Mr. Shekhar abt the day’s task. As usual i loved this task as well. I feel I have the most satisfying job in the world! And yes man I do have. I’m really really lovin’ it! Day passed on. Had tea, coffee bites and other stuff. During lunch break, I had my Asli foods lunch pack. Prashant ordered for a club cheese sandwich. So we sat 2gether and has lunch. After lunch just went out and moved around. Then returned back to work. TO my surprise, I got a message from a person who wanted our company services. Altough I am not into client handling and all, I am still adding on to the client base. i informed mr shekhar and he sounded pleased. This made me feel even better and again, M lovin it!

This went on similarly till 4:30 and den i called boss to ask abt another task, and u already know the response. After that m here sitting and writing blog. That how TODAY passed. Tomorrow is independence day, so no office, no classes. And  sunday too is off. So next meeting, on Monday.

Adios!!

Keep It Up!

In All Stuff in here. on August 14, 2009 at 4:28 AM

Sounds Simple, isn’t it? A simple Keep it up message can possibly not create ripples, and is not something to go ga-ga over. But then, there are some events which simply crop up in life and make such ordinary things, such mindblowingly significant. It was just the other day i was talking with this friend of mine and was telling about some achievement, that she spilled out the words – “keep it up”. And my reply, exclusively binitwa style, “I alwayz keep it up”. Now, not many would actually try getting to the depth of these words which again sound so lay-man types, but there is more to it. An underlying hidden meaning, which is not to be revealed, just to keep people brooding over it.

One more great thing that i noticed, there’s this group in facebook which screams “late night talks”. I mean, What the Fish? Are there not better things to do in life? Not about the talks but making groups abt such absurd things, and then other people joining them. Wondering why I am creating such a mess of  a bloody group? Its because I’m also an underground member of the larger community of nocturnals!

Ah! I dun feel like typing crap anymore! Lets get over it. Thats all for now.

There’s nothing rajnikant can’t!!

In Facts & Humour on August 13, 2009 at 4:36 AM

1) Outer space exists because it’s afraid to be on the same planet with Rajnikant (some science, huh !!)

2) Rajnikant has counted to infinity – twice. (of course, he went on the negative side too…)

3) (Now this one is my favorite…) When Rajnikant does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing earth down.

4) Rajnikant is so fast, he can run around the world and punch himself in the back of the head. (and Einstein though nothing runs faster than light…)

5) Rajnikant doesn’t wear a watch, HE decides what time it is. (and then there was Rajni !!)

6) Rajnikant can slam a revolving door.

7) Rajnikant gave Mona Lisa that smile. (alas !! the code is solved…)

8) Rajnikant’s house has no doors, only walls that he walks through. (birla cement filed a lawsuit on him once, they say…)

9) Rajnikant grinds his coffee with his teeth and boils the water with his own rage. (thats why his movies seem to be having such a pot boiler of an end, huh??)

10) If you Google Search ‘Rajnikant getting kicked’, you will generate zero results. It just doesn’t happen. (No comments)

11) It takes Rajnikant 20 minutes to watch 60 Minutes. (Space time continuum is a joke for this dude, must say…)

12) The Bermuda Triangle used to be the Bermuda Square, until Rajnikant kicked one of the corners off.

13) There are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq; Rajnikant lives in Chennai. (There you go Mr. Bush, Saddam was innocent, after all !!)

14) Rajnikant once ate an entire bottle of sleeping pills. They made him blink. (No wonder !)

15) The only things that run faster and longer than Rajnikant are his films.

16) Rajnikant’s every step creates a mini whirlwind. Hurricane Katrina was the result of a morning jog. (oh Katrina…)

17) (quite proverbial, this one) Where there is a will, there is a way. Where there is Rajnikant, there is no other way.

Good morning “Myself”

In All Stuff in here. on August 13, 2009 at 4:26 AM

Weird? Somebody wishing good morning to himself. Well thats my state of affairs- and u need not try to figure it out, simply because- You can’t! Ok now lets not make things cheesy anymore. Well another bright sunny day in my life[;)] I assume there is some relation between the climate outside and my blogging. Maybe I am more of a solar-powered person(another weird bouncer?)  Now, being completely charged, I tend to describe another set of interesting events going around.

To begin with, ever wondered what it would be like to have a friend who is completely your types,  more of a mirror image, in the true sense of the word? If you haven’t try imagining. I take all pride in saying that i am among the very few lucky people who have experienced such a relationship in life, and still experiencing.  And truly truly, I’m loving it!!!

A little intro of this darling, haq banta hai yaar!! Well, this friend of mine, to be very frank is a complete weirdo!(remember the mirror image thing??) Yes, together we make up a once-in-a-lifetime pair of friends! Complete freako, naughty, alluring and the most interesting part is dis friend is  super cool!

Together, we have done such crazy stuff, which in fact wouldn’t be half as fun with ANYONE else!! Ever tried to scare, or in fact, tease a auto driver? Tried to cross signal when there’s hell lot of traffic coming towards you? Ever acted like a couple all the time, so much that people around you go crazy and start bitching about you? Ever tried to shop the whole day for continious 5 days? Morever, plan for a movie suddenly and rush to the multiplex in no time? And the list of activities goes on…

Man, sometimes I wonder what on earth this relationship is like? The best part is that Love never comes in between, and it wont. The best of both worlds is what I am experiencing, and even my friend is, hopefully, naaaaah! she is definitely, I know.

This is enough of no-nonsense stuff for today, its time to get into some serious official stuff. Too much personal work in office is hazardous!!
