Jai Ho Rahman.!!!!

Well, who is not proud about the fact that AR Rahman got 2 oscars home y'day night. Also an oscar for Pookutty and Gulzar. I usually don't sit through the whole oscars, but y'day sat only to see if our Indians would make us proud. Well.. They did and my God how good that felt... !! I want mention how humble both of them were when they accepted their statues. Rahman's body language clearly stated he was just not comfortable with whole world staring at him in awe.! It goes to show how down to earth person he is..

On stage he quoted "All my life, I had an option between love and hate. I chose love and here I am today....." I think that summarized what he wanted say., ofcourse there was another pearl, he said "I was this nervous only another time and it was my wedding day." Pretty funny and how shaky he must have been..

I think he got into his element when he had to sing.. that was the most comfortable moment for him. And today I watched him perfom at Oprah Winfrey show.. Even though over the years we have seen him deliver great music one after the other, he has got recognition internationally because of his involvment in the international project. I am sure there are still whole lot of offers coming his way soon.. I felt soooo proud to be born in the same country as him. My fav till date from him... (hmm... this is a tough one, but I want to choose one.!! ) , I think has to be Vande Mataram... Every time I hear it, I LOVE IT.!!!!
Here's to the Maestro.!!!!!!! Congratulations.!

Media coverage..!!!

Have you seen news lately. Mostly it covers the news abt Shahrukh Khan. As to how he is recovering from his shoulder surgery.. All started with what time he had surgery, who did the surgery, doctors interview, list of people who come to visit him, interviews of people who saw him, touched him.!!!!!! Gosh,..!!

I remember few years back when Amitabh was in hospital, all the news channel did only that coverage.... Details almost as the above and lot more.. Like what he was suffering from, how it affects, whom it affects, why it affects.!!!!!

Well, around a month back when our Prime Minister was in hospital for by-pass heart surgery, how many of you notice that news.. Coz there was a small link on the news page which "mentioned" it.!!

Hilarious or Ridiculous... You decide.!!!

Nine words women use.!!!!!

I got this email recently, which listed some of the common words women use and their meanings. I thought, well, how bad could it be and started reading... But when I looked at the list., oh my goodness, it's hillarious.... And it almost means what women.. ( atleast what I think heheheehe).. think.!!!! It must have been written by a some woman, otherwise it can't be soo close to truth... Whatya all think girls???
So, guys, here is an insight of women's brain, am sure it will work to some extent. Remember the points, so it saves you some argument time... Nice gift for Valentine's day. ;o). Enjoy the read.!!

(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

There are ridiculous number of bailouts happening nowadays.. Left and right they are sanctioning bailouts.. But what does that mean to us commoners., close to half of our hard earned money goes as taxes, and these tax money is the one that's used for these bailouts,... Instead this money being used to improve the local schools, libraries (which surely could use some help..) it's being used for car-makers bailouts, bank bailouts... These got themselves into this position, so why should it even get any sympathy from the public. Also reports of these companies splurging on unnecessary things are driving me crazy.

First the car makers come in their private jets (fly in 4 diff jets!!! ) to Washington to ask for money. Then heard about the CEO who splurged thousands of money in renovating his office room, and today heard a news of all the banks, along with bailed out ones having a convention in 5 star hotel in Vegas.!!! Some of these are the sponsers over there. The bank side of story is that it didn't cost them much to be sponsorers.!! Duh.!!!!

Then follows a news story of how School districts are struggling to keep going, coz they do no have money to pay to the teachers.. And how libraries all over the country r closing coz they can't keep up with the operating cost. There is no-money invovled for the public to use the library, so the money should come from govt for them to survive.!!!!!
Is anyone seeing all this or is it just me getting frustrated with all this??
