Televised for replay !!!

i am back, i guess i cant stay without speaking my mind for long. i mean i did try to let go of my routine stuff which included troubling my nieces, biking and of course blogging but i realised pretty fast enough that these are the very things that fuel my mundane life....

where else apart from my blog can i get this chance to speak what i want, write what i want without a care in the world. this is after all my space and what i choose to do with it being of course my prerogative :)

so what brings me in now ? aah well nothing great, i was just browsing the tv channels and found a couple of things that suprised me :) so here goes the list (not necessarily in the order of importance tho... )

1. Aah the item girl wanted to distribute computers to arthur road jail inmates and when permission was refused she raved and ranted as if the world is coming to an end. She did the same thing while getting all smootchie smootchie. apart from smirks from people around she didnt get anything else i guess. Ohh i forgot i reckon she gained ENOUGH cheap publicity, which is why it happend in the first place :)

2. A prominent news channel for advocating the devil, bhooth whooth and what not. they even got a sicko to come along and tell us how we should resort to jaap etc to ward off the evil. as if all the fraud baba's and sanyasins we get to see on television werent enough. Admit it, we have 350+ gods and godess and its really suprising we still allow these parasites to render us bare.

3. The K series. Not that i ever watch it, but sometimes vanity gets the better of me and i just sit around with my niece and elder sis listening to those sob stories. Invariably i will ask, isnt this guy the villain, how did he become a hero here and my sis will resort angrily "are who K___ serial mai hai yeh tho K___ serial hai" and i am like ohh yeah whtever...

4. dada in a cheerful mood for a change and it was nice to hear him speak openly about cricket and his future plans. that man has seriously got the potential but its just that at times he gets it to his head which is when he starts acting funny.

5. sadamm and his relation to my god's own country. well actually i have no right to call it as "my" as i am a fraud. i dont belong to the land of my ancestors, neither to my birth place as i left it on my own will. Currently I am holed up at a place which even in the remotest sense would never be a part of me. The anonymity, my career prospects and the climate being the only clinching factors that makes me stay on here for the past 2 years...

6. the ABCD, american born confused desi who returned home to rave and rant about how bad the traffic is, the infrastructure woes, the rotting civic sense etc but still had no shame to urinate at the compound wall ostensibly since it wasnt his place. I wanted to give him a piece of my mind, but just smiled since i remembered the funny ad they showed on tv and the actors dialogue " aadmi par terah terah ke pressure hote hai" hahaha hillarious...

but then we all have come to accept the fact that these days anything and everything makes it to the news channel. First they bored us with abhi-ash affair, then the bentley car saga and before that the munna bhai case. Looks like the media has forgotten it has the role of a watch dog and not that of a pet dog....

the way things are as of now, i guess there's more waiting to happen...........
