A show that one can never get bored of and is probably the only program that is franchised by very many english channels on the tele.On a sunday,when you just want to relax and prolly just watch this show with a sip of hot chocklate or something like that.Friends make a huge difference in our lives.They do shape our lives in queer ways.It would be a wish-full thinking to have a family of friends just as this show.If-Ifs and buts were to be given a day and in this case more than a decade to live,we’d all be living rewarding lives enriched with amazing friends,always there all the time.When people from different backgrounds come together and live together,it creates a fantastic realistic living paradise.Each character is so carefully carved and depicted its just fun to watch.When something has had such a legendary success,a phenomena that stands-out all by itself,shouldnt be copied into and made a cheap slapdash like a program on ‘Channel-V’ here.Classics shouldnt be touched,cant be.They stay on the zenith and throw humorous tid-bits as this show does.No matter how many ever times one watches this show,one doesnt feel the humour is ever insistent.Chandler bing and joey can thrown auidence in splits in matter of no time with their timeless comedy.Phoebe’s caricature quirky and honest to the point of being witty.Not a single moment dull or wittyless.Impeccably ironic,sarcastic and funny in its own way.This show for sure rocks for every bite of its comical tid-bits.Can there ever be another Mr.Bing or Joey tribianey or a Racheal,Monica,Ross or a Phoebe?..I’d say no…and with a smug.

The story of how a simple shopkeeper who started off by sold stone wash fabric to ordinary retailer and later became a retail-magnate himself.The story about Kishore Biyani and his extraordinary stunt in the business with unconventional ideas.The man who retained Indian-ness in his business concepts be it Pantaloons,Big Bazaar or Central.A must read for all enterprising entrepreneurs.His favorite mantra-“Rewrite Rules,Retain Values.

My take on interpretation of Dreams

Posted in: Tv,Movie Reviews | Comments (0)

Sigmund freud had lot of time in his hands to sit and gather probable group of elements and use his imagination to let us know what they mean.Do you really care what dreams you get once you are up and on- the- go?Do you remember them in first place once you are awake?all this trifle is for do-nothings.

I think that dreams are the effect/outburst of the content in the subconscious.Why ponder on the outburst and let it countereffect by thinking about what it meant?Theres things that influence us/effect us at a subconscious level,so what?If its being let out in the form of a dream,its a good thing,mind becomes more lucid enough to accept newer experiences.

Pondering over dreams and interpreting them per se is a disorder engulfed by idlers.Maybe Freud was idelistic when he wrote this book,that jerk.I like C.G Jungs take.Interpreting dreams to take a peak into the subconscious mind is a half-way to destination.Subconscious comes much later,tell me,whos got conscious these days to let effect anything at the subconscious level.There is no subconscious in the modern era.

A bohemian host-show.Offbeat in style and concept that lacks the stereotypical check that we view in most of the shows.There’s that unusual unrestrained informality, which appreciatively dearths humdrum of stodgy talk shows .Formal-deficit-order-restraint show.So very Me-ish!No hue and cry like Oprah’s show.I like this better.Free-wheeling in every way ,creates a convivial atmosphere for the audience and the viewers.

One of my wishes is to be on this show,Either as an audience or a Celebrity! :)

Story of a bead

Posted in: Story of a bead | Comments (0)


I was born in a sea-shell.In the ocean of notions.You gave me a few names,transforming my true color so that I could camouflage in your artificial world of haves and wonts.You twine me indifferent pattern to solve your purpose of exterior beauty,when you fail to see the Real Me,learn and imbibe the same. I wear out my welcome after a while and you wear me out too.I challenge your desire for vanity.And we all beads sitting together in the same row,giggle and watch your superficial world.

Blurp

My neighboring bead tells me he likes to being green color instead of pink to which I turn green in envy and he too turns green seeing all talent of changing colors.Thus all the beads get high strung and high on changing colors putting a demagogue to shame.Then all of a sudden the third bead from the rear end wants to go and sit inside a shell it seems;remincing infancy;feeling nostalgic.The bead sitting next to it starts farting at the idea coz he has dislike for sharks,they are not so polite it seems.Plus they don’t brush properly all sticky drooping saliva trying to bully with such appearance.The skirmish between the nostalgic bead and the shark-disliking bead creates a tension on the thread they are all twined to.The raiment unable to take their farting debate,decides to break free and liberate them all.The stoical thread,does not like naive debates creating such a tension.It likes harmony and peace and thus undoes all the other silent and not so silent beads.The threads slips down to release them all and takes a beauty vacation.The beads rolling on their stomach fall on the floor.Some happy,some confused,some dumb,some numb,some indifferently delirious.A few happy ones find their destination,free from bondage.The others not knowing what to do sit there and watch thinking someone will come and pick them up and twine back into another thread,what an expectation!Mortal of the story…don’t hold on too long,it creates tension and you finally have to break away having no other choice.Hence stay together and be happy Lekin tension nahi deneka!!
