Raj Kumar Hirani is planning a biopic on Sanjay Dutt next. Yes, after dealing with Gandhi and God, biopic on Sanjay dutt. Except Raj Kumar Hirani can show every one good - thats probably how the man sees it too. It is disgusting  how the criminals are celebrated mostly on screen.

And that disturbs me. Everything about Sanjay dutt and his celebration in bollywood disturbs me.
His and out of Jail treating it as his vacation home - Our outcry not having any impact on this.

So I decide I wont watch PK

Well until tommorow or how ever long  I can hold off my non-film watching still wanting to watch Lingaa and PK friends.

Lingaa was watched, Punishment endured.

About what Indra nooyi said

So Indra nooyi said, you cant have it all. All the men with super successful careers hopefully nodded their head.

I wonder why the discussion isn't about how to have your cake and eat it too aka how to be a successful ceo and have a good work-life balance too. Instead all I have been reading about is, women cant have it all. 

Men dont either, is all I am saying.

For very valid reasons, I decided I should blog regularly. I will do a post on the valid reasons too one day :)

Another blog, another election post.

After spending couple of hours engrossed in movies, having almost forgotten about election results, I checked the news - the election results are already out. 

First of all, congress is out. A big hurray for that. That is the only outcome I was sure I wanted. And for congress and Nehru family  to vanish from Political scene which I know is little far fetched but that is definitely on my wish list. 

Secondly, arent the results amusing? Crunching numbers of the various regional party wins, a blackmailing Jayalalitha/Mamta brigade - in short the usual post election antics is what I imagined. 
Because I realize that is the only sort of central govt we have known. Do you realize? Most of us have grown up with only with coalition rule at the centre

Now, I am not jumping with joy at all. Do feel scared about quite a few things - 
  • the unnecessary shade of religion( this time another religion - my own) - considering BJIP's base, it seems even unavoidable.  I am a practising Hindu and all but a religion space is always within the confines of a person's private life not in public domain.
  • dictatorship - dont like it cant stand it
  • and on the issue that bothers me the most about my country- corruption. BJP hasnt proved to be any different in their last stint. Narendra modi hasnt been caught in a corruption scandal yet.  And They dont have coalition political dynamic to blame. But somehow I just dont believe, it will be any different. Let us see.
  • Btw,  I dont care about if modi has a gf just dont care about his personal life.  unless he has commited a crime, dont care Period.

PS: found it a little strange that even as of yesterday political parties and media behaved as if BJP had already formed the government( they didnt say it will form a govt. of its own, that seems to be the only surprising element from yesterday to today)

Just talking

1. I like to talk
2. I talk a lot

I am not this, but I cant be held responsible for what I talk.
