Pani da rang vekh k ..

Absolutely smitten by Ayushman.
I've always liked him as a host/anchor...but never knew he would do so well as an actor and even a singer! Just awesome!

Vicky donor is one of those light hearted movies with every element in the right place. And when you see someone act so effortlessly - it makes watching the movie all the more worthwhile.
Playing a punjabi guy mustn't have been too tough for him. Just loved his spontaneity.

Not only him..every other character in the movie was equally good.
 Loved the role of 'vicky's' modern grandmother.
Some very funny dialogues & scenarios!

And then ofcourse coming to the overall movie - it managed to deal with the subject of sperm donation very well. Plus also taking over the cultural differences and again tuning the message subtly.

A very realistic , sensible , decent & entertaining  movie - yet not very serious or preachy.
Thats a good combination to give a break from the otherwise bollywood bullshit.

I'm currently addicted to this song that Ayushman has sung. Its wonderful.

Types of presenters!

3 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]

1. The ones in relaxingly ORDEAL state :
They don't know what to do. They don't want do anything either.  They might appear tensed about the assessment but it hardly makes any appearance during inputs!
They are dummies in the group - good for nothing! They will sit back and relax till the other members make the entire presentation and when everything is finalized , they will request
"Please give me the introduction slide"
Like seriously ?
But then  at the cost of presentation and their severe lack of knowledge , giving them over the introduction part is a safe bet.

2. The scared mice.
These are the ones little ahead of the type 1 presenters. Not only are they hardly aware like the ones above but  they are also scared about presenting. So they want to speak NOTHING.
Escaping the presentation fear with one slide is boon for them.
It doesn't take much for them to hit the PANIC button.
One blunder and whatever little they might have managed to mug up - will simply wash away.

 3.The muggers!
 Talking about mugging up - these are the ones who will learn every single word of the slide so that it doesn't looks like they are simply 'reading' from the slide. But the fact is that they do not add much to what is mentioned in the slides.
Who are they fooling anyway ?
These are the better halves of scared mice , only that they are confident about their mugging skills and have less chance of slipping.

4.The irritated presenters!
Making other  do the task is a challenge in itself. And one thing you learn in management - is , well - to manage others!
Dealing with the very relaxed and laid back students can be very pesky!

5. The average presenters.
They speak well. Their inputs are below average but they handle the presentation well.
So they might as well be forgiven by other members.
But they still remain average.

6.I will steal and speak someone else's part
These are the confused ones. No matter how many times you explain them what they are supposed to deal with in the presentation..they will go ahead and speak some other part - usually that part which the next presenter was supposed to say.
Since on an average almost everyone rehearses his or her part - it leaves the next one in line in more confusion.

7.My body language says more than my words
If at all you are looking for a little entertainment in presentations - Never miss out witnessing the ones in this category. Their body language dominates everything else.
The slides may go to hell. What they speak may also go to hell. But HOW they do it is what takes the cake :D
Funniest presenters.
( No offense :P )

8.The presentation FREAKS :
These guys are the 'field workers'. Collecting and assorting data. Putting everything in line.
They will be all done with making presentation maybe in less than 2 days after being assigned.
They worship excel , powerpoint. IT guys!!
And since they are so fast with their work , they have enough time to devote to creativity.
Usually the others in class will wonder why do they have to be so amazingly creative every.single.time.
9. Sailing a storm type.
Enthusiastic lot. Vouching for both marks and recognition. They put in efforts .and get just about the result they want. But they usually have to put all the efforts themselves!
Their team mates are either scared mice or belong to the first category.
So its nothing short of sailing through a storm for them ;)

10.The presentation Lords!
The bestest and probably the most enviable of the lot! Not only are their presentation skills excellent but they are also very updated about their subject.
Enthusiastic and spontaneous!
These people don't vouch for marks..they justify their willingness and passion.
 Everybody else simple prays to be in their group !

Its been quite a happening weekend.

Started off with farewell party. We had chosen 'carnival' as our theme and I don't reckon if any senior stuck with the theme. Infact for that matter I think - we , the juniors were dressed better :D

There was obviously the , dancing and picture clicking. Lots of it!

We had selected special couples for the paper dancing competition. Too much chemistry dude!
And yes as they say..'mauke ka faida uthao' - the juniors too jumped in the competition :D

I was dancing with a friend - trying to do the ball dance thing which didn't seem to work because neither am I good at it nor was he :P

My friend and I conducted the Mr and Miss senior/farewell/ whatever :P
And it was nothing short of a disaster!
Our questions were quite questionable!
We asked one of the girls nominee to swear in Hindi.
She started off with beep beep..but we prodded her to say the full word.
And in front of those odd 200 people she blurted out MC and one or two other such slangs without a hitch. Gutsy!!
The seniors were enjoying the show :P but then some of the guys from our batch opposed and I decided maybe we would have to change the rest of the questions.

So even as I asked one of the guys about his views on live-in relations , I had to change the virginity question replacing it with who's the hottest here! huh :o Not much fun :P

The question round was the last one. There was the ramp walk and dance with the juniors before that. One of the seniors asked me to dance with him.

As for the rest of the party...I danced like a maniac! Totally to my heart's content.
And if it weren't for those stupid heels I wore ,  I could have danced more ( if we could have had more of the dj! )

 This is the invitation card for the seniors! Nice no ? Quite a creative bunch we have in college!

I have formed a theory about dressing.
The shorter your LBD , the more compliments you garner :P
While my friends constantly kept saying I was looking hot, my classmates were quite surprised to see me in new avatar :D

And of course my friends were also teasing me to no end.
'Maaal' someone said. The other one was like 'Inventory?' lol
When I told this to another friend , he said ' Godown ka maal ?'

Everybody is a character here! And I love being these superawesome people.
Had an amazing time with everyone!

I don't get it why seniors think they are the most gorgeous people on the whole damn earth. I would have wanted to enlighten them on this several times.
They have an attitude the size of an elephant.

I almost silently swear every time one of them give those looks. Bitch.

Game theory.

0 Cuppa coffeee [comments ]
For every gain there is a loss and for every loss there is a gain somewhere. Its a zero sum game.

You want will have to sacrifice something else. You can't have both equally.

Why don't you get into politics otherwise ?


Because even in that hate lies a deep rooted love somewhere.
Vulnerable and pure. Unfazed by the layer of loathe.


 Yes maybe the best of relations don't need explanations..but if someone questions and you would be questioned only when things are getting bad , why do you need to backfire ?

If someone really cares and doesn't wish to loose you..they will do everything to set those assumptions wrong. They will do everything to assure they have you  all to them self without any doubt.
The moment someone doesn't feel the need to justify ...its all quite over!


After sappy promises of 'being there' and months of dating ..its not called a relation.

Are you fucking kidding me !?


Love isn't a calculation.
But everything after that is math.
This VS that.
Convert every thing said and done into negative or positive points.
Lame blames.
Ex flames.
An algebric equation with increasing variables.
Find x , then y , then z...keep figuring out until you decide its a wrong sum.
Totally wrong. Doesn't fit your logic.
So scrap the entire sum to land up with another puzzle to solve.


Loving and being in love is different. Drastically different.

Loving has various versions...

Being in love. Unmatchable.Unconditional.Unique.Ultimate.


Set fire to the rain.

Do not need a breakup , but a heartbreak to know what it means.
