Love Cycle

Years to realize the fact.

Months to prepare myself.

Days to decide the D-day.

Hours of contemplation.

Minutes to profess my love.

Seconds of hearing rejection.

Minutes of rebut and reasoning.

Hours of disappointment.

Days of dejection.

Months of seeking respite.

Years to move on...

It was exciting when I first felt it.

But then after those initial days

it grew out of my control.

Sometimes I trimmed it down,

many a time I liked the feel of having it.

"What's wrong with you?" questions and stares arose.

Confused and clueless of their misconceptions

 I maintained a clean-shave, since then.

The Great Indian Blogologues - Bits and Pieces !!!

     History has been made and yeah for the first time EVER (from what we heard from the Stray Factory folks) a string of stand alone blogs, mostly written burning the midnight oil I guess, has been brought to light or rather should I say LIMELIGHT. Now, having watched it twice here's my take on the bits and pieces that made up this show.

Starting off with the three plays...

@Judy finds ‘The One’
  • Firstly, kudos to the director for striking a connectivity between more than a handful of posts and delivering with absolute precision and timing.
  • Its sarcastic genre has surely struck a chord at a lot of stark realities prevalent in the social and work surroundings.
  • It was appreciable that the voice audibility level imbalance between the two characters that was seen in the first screening was overcome here.
  • Bottomline: Amazing adaptation and indeed Judy found 'The One'.
@Vigilante Vs Vigilante
  • Great to see such a complex set of posts be taken in for an adaptation, honestly I couldn't comprehend completely though, still. However must say that I felt the second screening was a bit more "adapted" in an attempt to suit the audience understanding.
  • The Loan Sharkji dialogs seemed to use expletives like as if she was made to sign up for just that.
  • The crying scientist girl acting overflowed (கொடுத்த காசவிட ஜாஸ்தியா நடிச்சா) in the second screening in comparison to her apt act on the first.
  • The background score was not of much support to the scenes at hand.
  • As Inspector Sathya knew his jaab, he saved others' butts, with just bruises.
  • Bottomline: I was twice as "Vigilante" as I could be, both the times but still the clone escaped over my head.
@Confessions of a scattered a mind
  • The first thing that came up in mind was the musical touch that I enjoyed and it was truly refreshing after a befitting fighting-for-samosa break. Must say that the scientist had a good singing potential.
  • The idea of using a mime to create a traffic jam on-stage was truly laudable, hands down but I did not know why it was a wee hour traffic jam rather than a peak hour jam.
  • Mr.Modi was amazing and might have left the real Modi gaping for a moment, had he watched.
  • The character Anuraag struck a good balance in his intonation and rendition and for sure the script did complete justice to the blog post.
  • The என் இனிய தமிழ் மக்கள் who "filled" the last part were good on their accent, body language and voice throw but not on the substance.
  • Bottomline: Truly lived up-to its name and kept the audience mind scattered.
Moving on-to the collaborators...

  • Its pretty evident to know that Indiblogger has grown to the extent of being looked upon as a pioneer in showcasing Indian Blogger talents and no one else would've been a better choice for Stray Factory for this venture, than you folks.
  • Kindly stick to timelines when showing promotions for shows like this and remove it or update it upon completion of the shows because the first thing I still see logging into your forum is the blogologue tab with 'Buy Tickets' button for the 31st Oct show, STILL. It gives a feel that the site has been cobwebbed due to some poor site administration. There are quite a few more for which this is not the space for me to highlight though.
  • Bottomline: Indiblogger will surely make it to that coveted world level showcase SOONER, sans these technical glitches.

  • I know you guys have the potential to have pulled off even a larger, bigger and more 'realistic' traffic jam. No idea whether what you had showcased was all, that was expected by the director.
  • Your part in the second show did not do justice as to what the first show did and there was an evident lapse of coordination which I am sure you people would've realized already.
  • Bottomline: The performance was way below par off a trademark MacTrics performance.

  • I was very much disappointed and confused with your performance, which was just like a background score in bringing the cast and crew on stage in the first show.
  • However, I am blessed to have made it to the second show wherein I had been a witness of the true potential of what you were capable off. I loved and enjoyed your  scintillating performance on stage.
  • The lyrics was well scripted and stuck up-to the message that you wanted to convey.
  • It made me decide to get a copy of your tracks if it has been released already.
  • Bottomline: HIP HOP தமிழா உனக்கு நான் தலை வணங்குகிறேன்.

  • The sync-up, discussions, brain-storming sessions with the blog authors were truly up-to the expectations and the run-up to the event was well informed as well.
  • The live-recorded conversational pair debuted truly in style and sure it was well received by the audience too.
  • I'm rather surprised to notice that the 'LCD Screen Conversations' worked picture perfect for 'Judy...' but not for 'Confessions...' on both the screenings, with a little improvement for 'Confessions...' on the second show making not much of an impact though.
  • The lighting and audio queues are definitely something that should be on the MUST IMPROVE list as it faltered and the actors on stage had to cover up for it.
  • The props management needs fine tuning as well, or maybe the bad light-queuing made this look a bit clumsy especially in the second screening.
  • Though the LIMELIGHT objective was achieved, the Bloggers were not given a worthwhile mention, on either of the shows.
  • All said and done, yet again a must say is that this is indeed an amazing venture and I'm sure you guys will go places.
  • Bottomline: Stray Factory bravely strayed into the unexplored and the unheard off domains and no doubt are en-route a firm path towards fame, achievements and accolades from a growing audience, each time.

From Hider's Den

    The recent interview and news sharing has brought to light that Zulqarnain, who's sweetly referred by PeeCeeBee as 'Hider' these days, has sought asylum in Britain. Our close sources from London has unearthed some reasons so far, behind Hider's move to Britain.
  • Hider was not sure if the South-African media had such a potential of taking him to that pinnacle of limelight that 3 of his team mates got, a few months back based on a whistle blown by NOTW.
  • The potential risks of answering / involving (sharing the limelight) with the senior team members and mostly importantly attending being-a-puppet press conferences with the team manager has been thwarted.
  • His bookies are apparently London based and his remuneration as a Pakistani cricketer was just not enough to support him on the high ISD calls rates he had to pay whenever he spoke to them.
Our London reporter was able to catch up a drink at a "Booker" hotel with a famous Bookie Mr.Paisa Power and the unconfirmed yet very strong reports suggests that in-fact the entire course of  Hider's winning performance versus SA in that ODI and seeking asylum in Britain was a small shred of a newer version of a BIG BUCKS fixing scandal. Asking him on Hider's involvment with match-fixing  and here' s what Mr.Power blurted to us on what all were fixed.
  • The selection of Hider into the National side was itself fixed, to start with.
  • The Paki team's lead sponsors are a bunch of bookies who for the first time ever booked a player (Hider in this case) to play a match winning knock.
  • On every match that Paki plays some player or the other, play a "fixed" role.
  • The retirement announcement from Hider is based on the biggest bet placed on a new comer till date in the CBL (Cricket Betting League) and incidentally this announcement was followed by the 25th anniversary of CBL wherein Hider was the guest of honor!!!
More to unfold soon...

Born Winners !!!

It was a do or die race for survival and existence.

It was not on a track of 8 people nor a race of many laps.

It was a Marathon of thousands of aspirants

for the ONE WINNER GETS ALL contest.

In the end I WON,

so did Billions,

 in their respective Marathons, 

world over!!!

Mr.Chovan Held Kobama's Hand Longer Than Expected

      For the first time in the history of Send-Off ceremonies, Mr.Ashog Chovan was seen SHAKING HANDS with Mr.Kobama LONGER than that was defined by the Protocol draft and in-fact the Protocol Minister Juresh Jetty was seen restless having witnessed the incident from close-quarters.

   "With reports and comments flowing in from various Government establishments, we're still unaware of the reason for Mr.Chovan's unruly act." - An FBI Security Chief at the Mumbai Airport

The White House was the first to react stating "This incident is totally unacceptable and we've called on a High-Level Meet to assess ALL the possible security breaches summing up-to this."

"We had been briefing and making 'these people' in India, on how to shake hands with Mr.Kobama and now with this lapse we have identified that Mr.Chovan had skipped the last two training sessions. We sure will take this issue with our Indian Intelligence Counterparts ASAP" - The CIA Chief-In-Charge of Security at the Send-Off location.

A Sting operation by INN-CBN has released EXCLUSIVE INN-CBN watermarked video tapes of the disgruntled Mr.Jetty post the incident sighing - "He (Mr.Chovan) did not have the latest Protocol Script v5.0. and He did not pay attention to me as well."

Ms.Rirupama Nao of the Ministry of External Affairs stated  - "Its too soon to comment on this and we are yet to receive any formal report / complaint from our US counterparts."

With various Indian National News Television agencies already in full preparations to bring out their versions of discussing this ISSUE of NATIONAL SHAME, our close sources revealed that 
  • Sardeep Rajdesai of INN-CBN has already roped-in THREE PROTOCOL Experts from both India and US to discuss this issue prime-time tonight along with a strong contingent of 25 other experts.
  • Proving they're not too shy at this game, NDeTV has asked Ms.Darka Bhatt to audition a set of 100 young people between the ages 20-30 based on who-claps-the-loudest and air a show prime-time tonight discussing this issue. 
  • Nimes TOW has already started Breaking News as I speak, raising questions of speculative nature like...
    • Whom to blame?? Was it Mr.Kobama or Mr.Chovan, who held the hand LONGER??
    • Could this be a publicity stunt by Mr.Chovan to make up for his Adarsh SCAM???
    • Did Mr.Chovan just follow "orders" of the Congress High Command in doing this???
    • Was there a foreign HAND involved in this incident???
  • The rest of the National English Channels are busy watermarking each of OUR photo stock as EXCLUSIVELY theirs.
With camera person Will-capture-all-footage Singh, this is I-am-the-news-breaker Patel for Pee Tee Aai, signing off!!!

Her Outburst

She was with me, everywhere.

I used to frequently check how she was doing

while she remained silent, mostly.

Left her back home forgetfully once,

I felt crippled all day that day.

Only to get back and realize,

 she had cried a lot that day

as her home screen read

"17 missed calls, 24 Messages"

The 3Gs for being a TRUE Human-being !!!

   The term 3G has been abuzz throughout India for quite sometime now with NTT DOCOMO all set to revolutionize the 3G space in India. As a part of this 3G Life Contest in collaboration with Indiblogger, the following are the 3 Gs for LIFE, according to me.

  • The power to GIVE - We Indians have always been caring, concerned and philanthropic to our best capabilities at occasions that demanded it, be it for the poor or for the homeless, or for calamity / disaster victims and the oppressed and yeah I am proud to say there are countless such INDIANs who have achieved this, all single-handedly and I really hope many more of us take cues from them on this cause.
  • The power to GATHER - With the need for the quickest possible ways for all that we GIVE to reach the respective needy people, it requires a tremendous teamwork of efforts. Hence came the existence of NGOs and other philanthropic boards that succeeded gathering resources (Workforce, Charity Marathon Events, Public Awareness etc) to make the achieve this noble-hearted goal in a every possible manner. Hence it is not just suffice if we start being individual philanthropists but we need to GATHER as a team and achieve the goal of making India a better place to live, for everyone.
  • The act of taking it GLOBAL - This journey of philanthropy should not stop with taking care of our needy fellow Indians but extend our helping hands to any Country or Community who're in dire need of the basic amenities too and strive for making every HUMAN BEING in this world LIVE a life rather than merely EXIST.

With the penetration of mobiles in almost everyone of our day to day lives, I am more than convinced that with the true speeds that the 3G technology has in the offing one can achieve or rather even revolutionize the above 3Gs with it!!!
