Happenings

(Quip for the pic: Shell-shocked!)

Thought for the day:Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time and annoys the pig."

Whew-if I hadn't seen the ad, I wouldn't have believed it.There's actually a movie which has broken Sholay's record for longest running movie? This movie is 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge', released in 1995. It's still running at Maratha Mandir, week number 646 and going strong. I almost felt like what people say when they see someone after a long time, namely' kal tak to yeh itna sa tha'(He/she was that small till yesterday(when I last saw him/her)...the same goes for the movie,I guess- it's like it was released just yesterday and now see how many weeks it has run. I'm surely going to see it,when I visit Mumbai next, just to see the audience which trickle in/pack the aisles. How about it,Mumbai bloggers-Austy,et al? Have you seen the movie at MM recently?

Still on ads in Midday(Where I saw the above one), there's this ad about a play,titled 'The va*ina monologues. Good Lord, I was shocked. What a title-and,it's ad line goes' Let's talk about se*.On the occasion of International Woman's Day, we bring to you the award winning play. A must watch for every woman and man'. Now,if that's not being bolder than the boldest, what is? I wonder how this title escaped the eagle/hawk/narrow eyes of our moral police?

Where do brands suddenly pop up from, I wonder? We have this quaint area called 'Karama Shopping Centre', which has a whole row of shops filled with duplicates and originals(More of the former) of the biggest brands, be it a D&G Chaddi or CK line of designer wear. So,imagine my surprise when I suddenly found all the shops filled with Ed Hardy-caps,Tees,Jeans,you name it.I asked one of the shopkeepers' Ed Hardy who?' and he says, Heaven knows what the brand is or where it's from. It just arrived suddenly, and now it's a craze. Craze is the right word. I mean, imagine paying 50 dirhams(550 Rs) for a cap with Ed Hardy scribbled on it?
