Fuck 'Rules'

We all are afraid of change. We all resist it. Reason is not that we fear the unknown, but we are afraid that the rules we have created around ourselves, by ourselves, will be broken. We all entangle ourselves by the rules, rules about making friend, rules about eating hours, rules about brands, rules about every god damn thing we do. But the real question is – do we need these rules?

Rules bring order in our chaosed life. Rules are good. They keep you on track. They keep you focused, increase your efficiency. Rules give you an illusion of ordered life. Rules makes you feel that everything is going according to a plan. And we all love things when they work according to the plan. Rules limit our view. They limit our idea of good things. There is this friend of mine. She told me that she has a rule of her life, she does not let anyone touch her hair. And the best moment in her relationship was when her boyfriend tied her hair. Now do you really believe that of all the smiles, tears and quite moments they shared, is Hair-tying-moment deserved to be the best? But then why this is special? It’s special because a rule was broken that time and it made that moment treasured.

Rules make our life so narrow. Rules are good but they stop you from changing. You shut yourself in your world of rules and you keep resisting change. Change is good. Change is inevitable. Change is nature’s way of tell you that that nothing lasts forever. So why do we have all these rules then?? In the end, the rules that we define, ends up defining ourselves.

I quote Tyler Durden – “I say never be complete. I say stop being perfect. I say let's evolve. Let the chips fall where they may.”

IIT Chapter - The Closure

I went to IIT today for some work at the bank. It’s not been long since my last trip but this time I felt a lot different. While I was driving back from the bank, I realized that there are no more people I can go to meet unannounced. There are no more faces that always bring smiles to my face. There are no reasons for me to come back here except for the fucking bank loan. All my friends have cleared IIT. I have never been fond of the institute but today was the first time I missed IIT. First time in the last 5 years.

I do have some familiar faces – Ashu, Harshi, The chosen pun, Shamshan and few really great juniors but I don’t think I will ever enjoy that much being in institute again. Since life@insti is so different without the group. I look back at my five years and I realize how fast life goes. How we all change, we all grow up. I remember Sajal as the guy from a small village Itarsi, who now he is doing his masters from UK. I remember Paplu as the guy from the suburbs of Mumbai , he scored 99.2 percentile in Cat 2009. I remember Ravi as the guy who was looking for Hindi speaking guys in the hostel, he is roaming around the world on company’s funds. I remember Anshul as the ratto-fying guy who was always fucked by life. Well I guess he is still the same. And about me, I am learning.

These were the bunch of people who made me realized that life is not as complex as we think. It’s just about doing whatever you want to under the constraints of circumstances and responsibilities. They told me that nothing lasts forever so they taught me a principle to live it up, drink it down and laugh it out. And I followed whatever they say because whenever I fell, they were there to pick me up

Today I feel like the IIT chapter has come to end. A chapter full of so many emotions. A chapter in which life took a giant leap.

Review - Rajneeti

I watched Rajneeti last night. Prakash Jha has done it again. I would not waste time and space saying anything what others have already said or written about it. I just have three things to say about it:

· Fuck man, Shruti Seth was in the movie. Shruti Seth. You don’t know Shruti Seth? She was the girl who accused Arjun Rampal with rape charges. Oh Gosh!! She was so, so hot in that scene. I know that you know what I am talking about. I have seen her so many times the way she was there in the movie. Okay not so much of seen as imagined. Okay only imagined but the point is Prakash Jha has given what I wanted ever since my childhood.

· Mr Prakash Jha, we are not interested in the kiss scenes of that Maa wala character and the Foreigner. We wanted Katrina Kaif. We deserved this atleast after a 2hours 50 min movie. I understand you did your best under the given Salmanian circumstances but c’mon man, we all were waiting for it. If not her then atleast Shruti Seth. You let me down there Mister.

· It’s so amazes me why the fertility rate in Bollywood is 100%. I mean every time there is a sex, next scene you get the news of pregnancy. People try for months in real life and Naseeruddin Shah did it in one night. I mean at that age too. And what I really appreciate is Arjun Rampal’s performance, the way he performed with all the performance pressure. I mean impregnating someone on the first night is really something. Isn’t it?

Apart from this movie is worth watching. First half is amazing and quite a lot gripping but second half loose track in middle. Overall a must watch.

Bollywood Trivia

I have updated a series of status messages on FB and Gtalk and I thought its an good idea to compile their extended addition and post them on blog. So here it is.

Bollywood Trivia: Bollywood of 90’s was a representative of the country’s state at that time. India opened its economy and we as a nation were feeling confident and optimistic. Songs like ‘Tujhe Mirchi lagi to mein kya karoon’ denotes the changed Foreign Policy of India rubbing shoulders with all the superpowers of the world. Dialogues like – “Harkar Jeetne wale ko baazigar kehte” showed the optimism we had in our blood. It also showed the state of Indian Cricket. Such was the deepness of the 90’s Bollywood.

Bollywod Trivia: The bollywood of 90's was daring enough to flaunt the single status of the Indian youth. The songs like ' aa bhi jaa....kab se karein hain tera intezaar' and ' jab bhi koi ladki dekhoo mera dil deewana bole...ole ole ole' has been the landmark in the industry and legendary examples of the time when India was not hit by the MTV 'Dare to Date' wave. Hail Bollywood !!

Bollywood Trivia: Adding Jamalgota was a trivial revenge technique used for the villan's sidekick during the 80's and 90's in bollywood. While it created quite a funny situation, it also result a lot of difficulty for the Villain character. Andaz Apna Apna was the first film to use this technique on one of the main protagonist character. Hail AAA !

Bollywood Trivia: ‘Khiladi’ has the record of the longest ever Movie Series of Bollywood. With 7 films – “Khiladi, Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Khiladiyon ka Khiladi, Mr. and Mrs Khiladi, International Khiladi and Khiladi 420”, Khiladi Series changed the bollywood forever. Undertaker, controversial Mud shot of Shri Shri 1008 Rekha ji and smooch of Mamta Kulkarni gave the first true International touch to Bollywood of 90’s. Songs like “jab tak rahega samose mein aloo, tera rahunga oh meri shalu” paved the way for the corny lyrics which has been a main character of Bollywood of 90’s. Hail Khiladi !!
