Date: 26th Jan'2010.(Happy Republic Day)
Time: 09:09:10(it'll be 10:10:10 in an hour and one minute?Happens everyday, btw, so don't look so astonished..LOL)
That day went off just perfect. As I said, it'd be a day of laughs, and it was...saw two fun movies- One Two Three- a comedy with @ 12 comedians starring..right from Sunil Shetty to the Office Office gang people...it's all about three people with the same name, Laxmi Narayan- all go to Pondy from different parts of India. They stay in the same hotel. One has to buy a vintage car for his Co, the other wants to exchange lingerie designs(This one was Paresh Rawal, so you can imagine) with a lady designer, the third one has to murder someone. Photographs of the people each one is supposed to meet, get mixed up...and, you can imagine the laff riot that ensues..not as good as the natural acting in Hungama, but naturally...but still..it's not a new movie,btw..it's probably a 2008-2009 release.
Later, the National Channel (DD- what to do- the Hotel has barely 5 Indian channels)..was showing 'Mere Baap, Pehle Aap'...Again, Pareshbhai playing an ageing Dad who wants to get married....saw a bit of it and then fell asleep, with humorous dreams running through my mind.If only every day could be like this.
I read about tweeple(People who tweet on twitter, for the uninitiated)..who're making weird tweets these days...a lady put up a pic of her drowning kid, another did something equally bizarre...seems like people get mentally deranged sometimes...will write more on this article next time.
Also, came across a piece on columns from India's top stand up comedians(Know why they're called that?) in Hindustan Times(which we get in Dubai but not in Baroda)..and the articles from some of them really made my morning today...will put up some of the highlights next time.
Just two more days to return to Baroda...at this time on Thursday, I'll be at the airport doing my usual observations on the shennanigans of people travelling to Amaaro Gujarat. The land of NaMo(Narendra Modi, as many fondly term our excellent CM) and Nano.
More updates coming up later...cheerio and TC. Tell me, what made you laugh today? Or smile?Or snicker?:)
