Multithinking

Most people these days are so busy that they hardly have time to even think leisurely or may be they think about so many different things at a time that when it comes to talking,it would turn out to be utter crap,for instance lets take my friend,N who forgets things told to her in less than 24 hours and says one common answer,"i was thinking about something else".
A couple of days back i was also in the same situation,but it turned out to be the best joke in the recent past among friends. I was seriously narrating the story of 3 idiots to one of my friend who was listening to me with utmost interest during which i suddenly said 'aquarium' instead 'ambassador'. She was weirdly gaping at me with a "what are you talking???" expression. I realized the mess i had made in the whole situation i was narrating and laughed my gut out almost the whole day thinking of it. I was telling the scene when kareena's pregnant sister was made to sit in the ambassador car instead of which i said aquarium,probably i had also been thinking about feeding my fishes.
But atleast the whole thing turned out to be something thats laughable,whenever thought about.

On dialing the wrong number.

Mom being a high school teacher handling tenth class,she had to contact one of her tenth class student for some information. She dialed the number that was saved in her mobile with the name Sheshank and when the call was answered from the other side,mom said she was his class teacher but the reply from the other side was not what mom expected it to be,but after sometime the person who din't happen to be the same Sheshank whom mom wanted to contact,said he remembered his Hindi teacher by the name and greeted her. Mom was surprised and cut the call saying it wasn't the same Sheshank she wanted to contact. Later in the evening when i was back home from college,mom told me the whole thing and asked me who that person was. I then realized that the person whom mom spoke to thinking it was her student was actually my cousin brother's friend from whom i had taken some guidance regarding the best management colleges in city and had eventually saved his number in mom's mobile which i had totally forgotten about.
Mom was a li'l embarrassed,though i had a hearty laughter at the end. :P

The kiss effect

When it comes to emotions,everybody knows most men in their 'jawani' ;) flirt with two women at a time. And most women envy each other if the young man gives extra attention and extra sweet gifts to the other woman ;) Now you can see a very young man exceptionally good at flirting and giving a sweet kiss to one of his girls while the other stares with discomfort. Nature you know :P

What will she pay?

Now that the France Government is strictly oppressing the Muslims in the country from wearing a burqa or covering their face by any means and anyone who offends the rule would have to pay a huge amount as a fine,then what would this li'l Siberian Husky in the burqa pay? ;)

Mile sur mera tumhara VS Phir mile sur mera tumhara

The National Integration music video "mile sur mera tumhara" first developed in the year 1988, intended to instill a sense of pride and promote unity amongst Indians, highlighting the different linguistic communities and societies that live in India was once again redone as "phir mile sur mera tumhara", after 22 years,and released on our 60th republic day. Both the videos have their own uniqueness though they mean the same. But according to me some parts in the song can be made a li'l better than what is shown. Let me first compare both the music videos

Mile sur mera tumhara . . .

The song starts picturing the sun rise,sea shore and water falls while Pandit Bhimsen Joshi sings the first verses मिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा, तो सुर बने हमारा| सुर की नदियाँ हर दिशा से, बहते सागर में मिलें बादलों का रूप लेकर, बरसे हलके हलके| मिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा, तो सुर बने हमारामिले सुर मेरा तुम्हारा| by the side of a water falls.
A group of kashmiris are shown having tea together and a scenic view of the sun set by a river,where a man rowing a kashmiri boat sings, चॉन्य् तरज़ तय म्यॉन्य् तरज़, इक॒वट॒ बनि यि सॉन्य् तरज़ (Chaain taraz tai myain taraz, ik watt baniye saayen taraz).
A punjabi family going on a tractor passing by a beautiful agricultural field, where a lady sings, ਤੇਰਾ ਸੁਰ ਮਿਲੇ ਮੇਰੇ ਸੁਰ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ, ਮਿਲਕੇ ਬਣੇ ਇੱਕ ਨਵਾਂ ਸੁਰ ਤਾਲ (tērā sur milē mērē sur nāl, milkē baṇē ikk navān̐ sur tāl).

A group of Sikhs and Muslims (Om puri, Deepa sahi and Dina Pathak amongst) sit together and sing in urdu and panjabi respectively, مُنهِنجو سُر تُنهِنجي سان پِيارا مِلي جَڏَهِن، گِيت اَسانجو مَڍُر تَرانوبَڻي تَڏَهِ سر کی دریا بہتے ساگر میں مل ਬਾਦਲਾਂ ਦਾ ਰੂਪ ਲੈਕੇ, ਬਰਸਨ ਹੌਲੇ ਹੌਲੇ (sur kā daryā bahtē sāgar mēn̐ milē bādalān̐ dā rūp laikē, barsan haulē haulē).
Then going to the down south,starting with tamil,shown are actors like K.R.Vijaya, Revathi , Kamal Hassan and Dr. Balamuralikrishna sing, இசைந்தால் நம் இருவரின் ஸ்வரமும் நமதாகும் திசை வேறானாலும் ஆழி சேர் ஆறுகள் முகிலாய் மழையாய் பொழிவது போல் இசை நம் இசை (Isaindhal namm iruvarin suramum namadhakum Dhisai veru aanalum aazi ser aarugal Mugilai mazaiyai pozivadu pol isai Nam isai) followed by carnatic in the background,showing a herd of elephants.

Now,the new version is 3 times longer than the original one but where are the famous citizens other than those from the film industries? There was None of those entrepreneurs,the cricketers,our beloved politicians,scientists?
There was no Ratan Tata nor Abdul Kalam nor our Sachin Tendulkar or Leander Peas. They haven't even featured any of those classical dances other than the barathanatyam.
None of the veteran actors were too featured other than Big B ... Dev Anand,Rishi kapoor.. none of them..
They could have featured the famous journalists like Pranoy Roy or Rajeep Sardesai too.

My overall rating for the new version would be 3.5 out of 5 while the original of course gets a 4.5
I liked the first one better.

The Lizard attack

HEAD lines - A lizard fell on a man's head when he opened the door of his own office at around 7.00PM on 13.2.2010 at Coimbatore. He was born on 7.10.1968 at 6:01AM.

DEAD lines - *The astrologers say this is the most fatal experiences the man could have had and counting from now anytime before 00:00 on 21.12.2012 he might die.

- *The books call it an affect of the bad deeds and would certainly bring bad luck.

The man is overwhelmed while the lizard enjoys the scenario,warming its couch. ;) lol
