Reality check...somebody?


Its beginning to get me all over again!!!

First it was channel V if i remember correctly....remember Viva& asma?

Then now its the third season of Indian Idol(bloody copy cats) and the god knows which season of sare gama pa!!

There are all here to make it big!! Win a huge price money with a singing contract & stuff. But then wat after tht? Nothing much really. I remember following The indian idol season where Abhijeet Sawant won the contest, got an album removed& yeah, he got famous. Then comes the very irritating, Fame Jodi! Again, Rooprekha& Qazir(read he bleats actually) won. I think they are back to their respective hometown now! "One year of fame", isnt it?

Then comes the flop album followed by an equally quick disappearing act! thats not all, they always plan a comeback season. I remember my sister being glued to the television(as long as there are ppl talking& moving on the screaan, she can sit thru it) for an hour watching these bloody reality shows. Ma& pa would also join in. Then come the voting time& quickly everyone is soo engrossed in sending the sms's to the channels.

They vote because they feel, or do they? The host is constantly hugging& sharing the participants woes...boo hoo hoo! Gack!!! Aree kaun chance pe dance nahi karega!!(read Aman Verma is a naughty boy!!)

The sms's are flashed& wat not! lolz....

It doesnt obviously end there. Recently everywhere...actually everytime u turn you get to see the hoardings of " The greatest challenge in the universe" or some shit, Sare ga ma pa. They have even managed to rope in Asha Bhonsle, I guess its her timepass!!!

And the honourable judges...are even wonderful. They are notorously known for leaving the stage in between the contest...posing to be miffed or being really really upset with the participant. Seriously these men(mostly)..especially Himesh Reshamiya(our new bald,topiwala superstar)& Ismail Darbar are soooo irritating!!

How are we to know if the real talent would win? Its like a game show right? We vote& the no. of votes decide who wins. So people are emotional fools anyways, hence they vote.

Why do we get dragged into these silly games? We know this is a another facet of consumerism encroaching on the only freetime people get & when they should be spending with their families and not be sitting in front of the damned idiot box! Ufff then they blame on the generation gap!

As if the saas bahu sagas werent enough!!! Believe me no woman can be Parvati or Tulsi and yeah, marriage isnt the end of the world. So why? lolz...The ultimate question that is....WHY???

Of flop albums, numerous marriages& plastic surgeries(face change actually!!) , thats all what is left to see on the televisions today.

But no the government bans the Fashion Tv but they allow soft porn movies to be made..lolz.

Yeah i know, this outburst is actually due to the lack of attention i get at home...lolz kidding!

But then a mere mortal like me cant do much right? hehehe

Maybe cutting the cable wires would help...but darn they have dish tv's now!

So maybe something like the war of the worlds....may help? lolz

#Sorry not sorry

I feel sorry for ‘Sorry’ – such an abused term. When you come to think of it, it is just a word, right? It holds significance in some instance and at times, it is a mere excuse. But we humans absolutely love it as an excuse, don’t we? I use this term a lot; I mean a lot! I think of myself as a kind being, and hence, if I happen to push or ignore (deliberate), I say ‘sorry’. I say sorry for things that may not need a ‘sorry’. I say ‘sorry’ to people I am not really feeling sorry for (don’t read this the wrong way). In short, I say ‘sorry’ a lot like I have already admitted. It is my ticket to moving on, a ticket to redeem myself for mistakes and sometimes, tinged with slight sadness (maybe).


But is ‘Sorry’ the right word? Mean, is it even appropriate? Like they say, first you commit the murder and then say sorry. What is the point of it? I would say nothing. Sorry – the term originated from the West Germanic term Sore that evolved to Sarig, meaning pained or distressed. It is also known…

I Wonder What Ants do on Rainy Days…

On days when the sun has abandoned us, hiding behind the grey, moody clouds. Do they sit inside their hills and wonder out loud? Do they stare outside at the rain, measuring the raindrops, letting thoughts splotch all over? Does the earthy petrichor take them down the memory lane? Or are they content with what nature has to offer? It is a part of their lives, isn’t it? They dredge up foods daily, diligently build their hills, even if it is to serve their queen, only to enjoy it on days like this, no? Maybe they do take stock of things, of their bearings. They ought to sleep it off, take a day to rest or do they lament on the lost time?
Unlike me.
When I gaze out, a gazillion thoughts fly by; some worthy of the pen, some so disturbing that I often question my sanity. I like the grey skies though. They seem like textured canvases waiting for me to scribble something. The lazy raindrops wetting the streets below and casting a temporary stain on window ledges bring a…

Celebrating Navratri? Stop now as we have no right to worship the female form...

Today my mom asked me to go get fall bidding done for her new saree. Navratri has begun and Durga Pujo is just around the corner. This year we are planning to go Pandal hopping on a Saptami instead of an Ashtami or Navmi to avoid the jams and the crowds. I will wear a saree too and my Punjabi husband will tag along for the delicious food.
In a multicultural household like mine, most festivals are a big deal, especially Navratri and Durga Pujo. But in the hullabaloo of festivities, we don’t stop to think of its essence – why do we celebrate Durga Pujo or Navratri at all. To celebrate Ma Shakti – a prompt answer from my mother. Navratri is a celebration of the nine stages of womanhood – a tribute to the power of the female.But to us commoners, it is a festival of dancing to the tunes of Garba or dandiya or Bollywood music. It is our turn to wear our best clothes, head out in the night, meet family and be merry. And once, this is over, the female form goes back to being what they always a…
