Monday, September 28, 2009



From the last year onwards, I have made it a point to kick off my puja extravaganza as soon as possible … the very central extract every inch of a happy moment that’s available around me…

We, the special 5 gang , planned to meet this day i.e. 22nd of September before any commitments turn up.. but zeeshan still missed out. Though it was a small session of a meeting… but was a nice one..venue was though a bit pathetic one.. a fair…!!!!!! I hate them like anything. But..whatever… with Kwality Wall’s Orange Stick in hand and browsing through pickle shops to toy shops , from Body Toning Instrument Shops to Candy shops , the evening session was fair enough. Sancho would be going out of no chance of meeting her..and Pilu & Ali had a damn “busy” schedule..during the puja..ahem ahem… so.. at the end of the day… I felt nice ..that at least we managed today.

Umm.. maybe the digicam should have been there… but silly … batteries are not charged yet…anyways better luck next time.


Lots of reasons were for me to remain happy .. but of course..this year’s puja special wardrobe of mine made me feel excited. And yes, I was pretty confused while browsing through them.

Anyways… while the first half of the 23rd of September was nothing worth mentioning… the second half of the day was a planned outing by me and my partners in crime.. Borda, Amitava and Naveen. Had a quie good adda session followed by a quick session of pandal hopping. Sitting on the staircases of CC, Amitava joined a bit late. And when he turned up, a few minutes later, Anjan Dutta along with Neel and gang took the stage and gifted us a musical panchami evening. Was hungry a bit… thus..within a few minutes, Zinger burgers and Crushers were ordered.
Had a small walk after that… within the silent alleys of Salt Lake..and then we were back to our den.


24th was more of a family affair for I had to accompany mamoni to a relative’s house for an invitation.. though there was a function too… for underprivileged children…missed it !!!! Anyways wrapping it off.. went straight to Gariahat..mamoni had some work. I was happy to catch up with Ekdalia, Singhi Park, Hindusthan Park in the meantime.
Was back quite early, but the rest of the evening went on with a chaos as I had to chalk out the next day plans.
Even if the day was not that good… to remember.. but nevertheless, it went fine.


Its morning … 10’o clock of the 25 th… still I am quite unsure about the morning venture. Still not sure who’s going to turn up and who’s not. Finally, at 12’o clock , our Seven member gang boarded two autorickshaws and went out for the Salt Lake pandal hopping. Yes. I turned out to be the tour guide and we did land up at some of the best pujas of the area with some eye catching themes served for the viewers by the block committees.
Reaching FD .. people were damn hungry and the smell of the “bhog” accelerated the hunger; and straightaway we landed to HANGOUT. Biriyani to Pasta , Murgh Masallam to Ghost Rogan Josh - everything gulped up. With a “Misti Pan” , we signed off from CC and move towards Sribhumi and Lake Town. It was the end of the episode there with the gang logging out for their respective den approximately at 6’o clock.
Took half an hour rest and an instant plan was made. Para friends and me are going out with family. Lovely. Moved to Bagbazar and some adjacent areas, Jumped into Mitali Sangha and some more and was back by 10. Hmm. Quite a Day.


Gearing up with the traditional attires for the “pushpanjali “ session ; went to pandal around 10:30 am and finished it off in the first batch. The Crowd seemed to increase as the hands of the clock progressed. Basically, I remain a bit aloof from my block.. thus its on the day of puja, I realize the “vast population” of my para. And it seems , its increasing with each year. On the other hand, what pinches me more ~ Well.. I never realized the such damozels resided here. It’s fun to catch a glimpse of them. Ahem Ahem.

As usual, had the lunch invitation at Choco’s Lansdown residence. Meanwhile Zeeshan was back yesterday. We two jumped in the bus around 12 and went straight , though suffering with the hiccups in traffic. Reaching around 2 ‘o clock.. had lunch served up..and it was damn tasty, man. “Bhaat..Dal.. Phulkopi..AlooBhaja..Chutney…aah khaye monta bhore gelo re paglaaa..”
Lazed during the noon session … and had a good adda with everybody out there.
During the evening hours we caught up with Sravanti Di’s gang finally at her para…and moved out to Deshapriya Park for the Rides. Visit to CafĂ© Coffee Day was the last piece of our adda zone . It was great to catch up with them after a long time and after the gala chat session, we moved out from there at 9 approx . But, whether it was moving in or moving out, catching cabs was the ultimate headache. Phew!!! At last , got in a bus and with some breaks, finally was back at home at 12’o clock!! Oops..!!! 26th was a bit too much!!!
(Meanwhile India lost to Pakistan… in the Group League… not the perfect Ashtami … that’s why..!!! )


It’s a bit sad - the 27th of September. Ma is going to leave tomorrow. Again making us wait for quite a long time. Because I heard that Puja is in late Octobers. Shrugging it off… I accompanied Nilanjan and Co. to Dum Dum Park and Sribhumi. Initially , I was feeling a bit too lazy but anyways, after the morning tour I felt good. Lunch was done back at the community hall. Food was too good and beyond my expectations.
Then a sudden plan cropped up. Baba, Mamoni and Me took a break from Kolkata crowd for a while and straightaway drove to Shaktigarh. A 4 hour up and down journey for the famous “lyangcha” was the USP of the day.
Mou Mashi and gang joined mamoni and me during the evening and it was a dinner again at Hang Out. Initially, everybody was geared up for a night out.. but eventually a visit to FD block was enough for all of us. The Hang over is still on. Maybe I had the energy but still I thought it was wise to give a break now for my later commitments. So, back to bed at 2:30 am. Snoring!!!!


Yes. Today. It is. The curtains are finally coming down tonite. The festival … which we wait for with a bathing breadth is finally over. From today , Idols would be marching off for “Bhashan”. The creative works would be moved out from their place, many of them destroyed. This is what I feel about the whole idea. Anyways, I do not have an alternative idea though.
I woke up at 11’o clock today. Lot of work up to wrap off. Finishing off with the breakfast, I did all those bits and pieces of work and organizing and arranging the whole house. Finally, life needs to come back to its original track. And yep, I am scribbling down all in my diary … finally. This was the last piece of work remaining for today.

Shubho Bijoya-r priti o suveccha janai shobbike. Boroder ke pronaam janai amar ei chotto jaigati theke. Shobai valo thakben.

And yes, I am signing off for now. Maybe I will catch up with Ind-Aus Match now. Take Care , People.


The Editorial Venture Moves On...

Yet another satisafactory Saturday morninh it was.. on 26th of September. Yes, another piece of mine got published.

Bits from here..Pieces from there [Part - IV]

It’s a sad September…. And it is continuing…. Two great personalities left ….Norman Borlaug and Raj Singh Dungarpur..!!!
On the other hand..i just wish that the rains take a back seat in the coming days… just the pleasant weather.. the perfect gift for the pandal hopping session..please..!!!!

But there has been few moments of “fun” under the sun..!!!! The whole scenario is set on one plot : proper utilization of public money..!!!
The first story is with a term..that had formed the theme of Central Government… “AUSTERITY”.!!!! For the past few days…it has been topping the charts … primarily kicking off with Mr. Krishna’s and Mr. Tharoor’s luxury living!!! Central Government is riding on a economic journey to properly utilize public fund..!!!!!! Sanctified thought .. you See..!!!! But Mr. Tharoor’s one liner with “cattle class” and “holy cows” is surely a winner..!!!!
Truly Tharoor has the right to joke. Because there’s sarcasm all over. The Central Government has made it clear to cut down extra expenses as much possible….noble thought and praiseworthy initiative..but what about the Statue of Chatrapati Shivaji..!!!!!!?????? Yes..Sir..please explain. How can a developing nation like India preserve such illogical thoughts????? Completely weird!!! A whopping amount of Rs 350 crores for a tourist attraction ( or formally.. for a respect towards SHIVAJI????)… Crap..!!!! An America can have a Statue Of Liberty, but not a nation..where innumerable people do not get the basic amenities for survival..!!!!!! Can’t the money be utilized for establishment of proper housing facilities, educational institutions, serve the drought affected areas?????? Where is the heart now? Where is the motive for proper utilization of Public fund?????.... Poor India…it is still dominated by sick ideologies!!! Don’t you feel Austerity is a mere “Show-off”..!!!!!!!!

Few personalities from the Film industry have raised their voices. I too did it in my space. And I hope you will do the same. Yup..jaaago..jaaago…jaago re…

The Days That Were....

Aah..back again.. I guess the longest gap till date taken by me.. could not really help.. thanks to those few commitments!!! Of course.. I’m loving them… and a special thanks to Amitava too…truly buddy..I dunno remember whether I did such tedious research work earlier on the net or not….
On the other hand..I was missing the space..truly…anyways.finally I’m back…
And yes..I was happy to see my other letter getting published… yup..the feel good factor was there…and I’m happy about the Indian Cricket Team. Finally, a finale to thrash the Lankans..!!! But I do feel bad..missing a major portion of the game..yup Sachin’s brilliant knock…but anyways I tried to make it up with Bhajji’s performance. Truly, it just gives you a feeling beyond see India lifting a trophy…and did you notice the first digital trophy..yup..concept was cool..and I feel proud that Dhoni and his men were the first to lift it..!!! Kudos..!!! I was damn disheartened to see India’s polite surrender in the group league to Sri Lanka…and succumbed by superstition I did not feel like watching the finals. Anyways, after seeing Indians defending 320.. I shrugged off the superstition.!!!
Oh meanwhile..after loitering around with few of the new ones, I finally watched “Kambakkht Ishq” and “Love Aaj Kal” …relaxing back at home… to be frank.. I quite liked the movies..( surprisingly)…maybe because it was a free of cost affair…who knows!! And Saif .. you rock man..!!! On the other hand.. I finished off with “Night at the Museum II “… and did stand beyond my expectation..!!! The conceptulisation in merging Napolean with Al Capone …and from mini Einsteins to Abraham Lincoln needs a standing ovation..!!! And the winners : Cupids doing a “MY HEART WILL GO ON” and the man from 1800 BC screwing up the cell phone..!!!
Apart..there were few funny recognitions that went on. Yesterday while returning home.. a man caught up with me.. “Kya hero!! Kya haal hain..??? I looked back.and sideways…”Was that intended for me..???”.. Carrying a blank expression throughout, I heard the man saying..he used to work in a courier service that was given on a rent .adjacent to my house; he continued..”arrey tum sab doston ke saath cricket khelte the… yaad hain..hum bhi tum log ko sath kabhi khel liya karta tha… “…True that my gang used to line up in my alley ..and faintly I could remember there was a courier service… !!! The man left..dissapointed… I shouted back ”softly”… “khair..mind mat kijiyega…”..!!!!! And on the previous weekend, a boy of my tuition class asked.. “Tumi Netaji Subhash-e porte toh??? “… “Hyan..but..tumi…????”..instant reply from my side…. And I ended up knowing he was a senior from my college..!!!! Oh’s a case of Amnesia..!!!!

But in the middle of everything.. I’m quite disturbed….one thought haunts me nowadays… is the call of TCS…sounds better or belling the “billi”..!!! I’m quite torn apart with some scrambled thoughts..I hope I recover..!!! The AIMCAT’s surely are not promising nowadays..!!!!

Whatever.. I feel I should be least for the coming days… after all it’s the season that we all Kolkattans have been looking forward too…But but.. did you notice the grandeur and popularity in Biswakarma pujas …woo… I never knew Biswakarma puja could be this big.!!!!! Anyways…Biswakarma puja…Eid…and now its Durga Puja time… a festive season all the way… wishing you and all happy and joyous days ahead… have loadzzz of fun… nd yeps…HAPPY CHATURTHI..!!!!!!

Editroial Venture Stays Afloat...

Quite a satisfied Saturday morning it was. Another letter of mine saw the light of the day. And I’ve some additional reasons to be happy… the concerned editors have trimmed down the usage of their scissors… and thankfully… the whole name “Siddhartha Sengupta” is flashing beneath the content of my letter… boo hoo..I’m excited..!!!

RAINFALL AND A SLICE OF METRO far as I could remember…it has been an occasion or two..where I might have got stuck in water-clogged areas. Till date..I need not have to travel much..So I have escaped the thrashings of nature.. and blessed by the position of my locality.. I do not witness any such traumas !!! But.. everyday is not marked by uniformity.. and day before yesterday turned out to be “UNIQUE” !!! Had an important exam..hired a car to ease my journey to Central Kolkata..but fate decided something different for me!!! The heavy traffic accompanied by massive downpours distorted the schedule… was late at the exam hall..!!!!! Finally, managed to submit a decent paper.. (maybe!!!)… but the hangover is still on..!!!!!! What would have happened if I had to miss the exam!!!! Anyways, the return journey was a funny tale though. Rain drops danced at its continuous pace… coming out of the exam hall…I boarded the Metro. Luck was by my side this time. The wild rush in Metro is now and then making the headlines… creating a problematic situation all over!! It was not the office time..when I boarded could avoid the crowd and had a safe ride. As I reached Sovabazar to take auto for my home.. I found myself in oceans : ocean of people and the flooded road!!!!! WOW!! What a scene… I wanted to take a snap..but anyways..I didn’t have any provision at that time!!! Somehow..i managed to jump into one of the running autos from the chaos… the auto driver warned the rates are doubled!! Cool..Who cares!!! Sitting beside the driver, the next 20 minutes or say..seemed to be a steamer ride on the Ganges..LOL!! Manhole has been opened to flow out the excess waters… but on the contrary, it has started ejaculating more water from the underground!!!! Boom..Booom!!! Two sudden sounds. Ohh.. tyres punctured of a nearby Maruti Van!!! Man, Woman trying to stride through the waters… mothers with the schoolchildren marching on… I wanted to join the gang!!! I let one of my foot hanging…as the Auto accelerated through the waters… splash..splash..splash…the sound was… as it clashed with the waters.. though I could see dirty polythene bags to platic glasses, rotten stuffs swimming aroud!!!Ahem Ahem!!!
Do not panic… I’m quite fresh now..!!!!! day..I went through the newspaper.. and found out Tuesday witnessed the highest rainfall since its tryst with Aila earlier this year….I do not doubt dear!!!!
Even the next day… I had to move out for some seemed fine..but as I walked past my house..within a minute or two… Rain God joined me on a walk..!!!! Tthe umbrella just saved my head…that’s it…!! This time too..I had to board the Metro from Sovabazar… luckily there were no downpours the previous the area has got rid of the waters…and still boarding the metro in th office time..I found myself in a comparatively comfortable compartment.. Thank God!!.. Wrapping up my job after yesterday.. it really seemed that I passed through quite a hectic venture. Because I have not been going around much due to my “CAT”astrophic commitments!!! Phew!! … whatever it was.. I had fun..that’s what sums up!!
And yes..for the first time…I witnessed people yelling out at Metro ticket counters… “Dada..duto NAZRUL dekhi…”…. “ Amake ekta Surya Sen deben..”…. shit!!! sounded so sick!!!

But.. some pieces heard on a regular basis: Reporters line up at Kumortuli to search for updates and each year a copy-paste article – Workers in trouble; highly doubtful regarding their work completion before the Puja . Another One: Mayor and city officials are on a tour in the rains and reports condition to be better than previous time… but the commuters witnessing the same extent of hazards each and every time!!!

Arre..byata ei sarkar-ta toh rojkar khoborer kagoj aar manusher ghyanghyanani-er chotey birokto hoyeo kaaj shuru korte parre ektu..uff!!!! kichu toh monotonous public..mairi!!!!

Bits from here..Pieces from there [Part - III]

September screwed up, I say.

Quite a happening month of this year… with lots of upside down..

Was a bit busy these days…wanted to scribble down from the fresh memories..but unfortunately, could not manage…
Anyways..a bright sunny morning ..feeling refreshed..(though thoughts are disturbing) so..I’m back..sitting in my own desk…

The Bengali festive is… but if I go by the sayings…” Morning shows the Day”… this month would be turning be a terrible one… !!!! With Gaffar Mollah’s “responsible “ venture in Vedic Village… it’s a bye- bye season for the software giants- Infosys and Wipro..!!! Bengal Government played the safe side. After the land ownership fiascos , the West Bengal Government has put a block over the transactions that private organizations carried on till date…
restricting it to direct transaction from itself. True, the options were limited and so such a step opted… but Singur or Rajarhat, whatever be the scenario… Bengal is loosing the route to industrialization… damn was the need of this century!!! Still in a fix, projects of Steel plants are standing far way from implementation… sole reason: infertile lands meager. It’s hoping against hope… would love to see the proverb.. “All’s Well That Ends Well” turning out to be true..!!!!

The second of this month… was again marked by a loss – disappearance and finally, death of another political figure YSR..the Andhra Pradeseh CM. Touted not only in terms of political loss, the death also marked the nation’s loss as he was the Common Man’s leader. I wasn’t really much aware of his do’s and don’ts … but the news of the poor committing suicides made it pretty evident… of Mr. Reddy’s contributions!!! Only a month ago..we lost Subhash Chakroborty..!!!!!
India is loosing out on its men.. who really worked… quite an irony!!!

But…Certainly.. the one that is making a helluva of news : The September downpours!!!!! Addressed as a blessing after the (seemingly endless) months of drought , the low pressure overturned the graph!!!! Bringing back a smile to the farmers and consumers like us… within a small span.. it is wiping it off with the adverse situations it has resulted in.!!! Continuous downpours have resulted in surplus now… again we are retained in the same state.. farmers worried and consumers upset!!!

[meanwhile… I found out my previous “bits and pieces” in the “to be continued “ state… well… I do not really remember what I planned to sketch in that section… and feeling damn lazy to find out.. so please excuse… maybe if this “short term memory loss” heals up.. I will pen them down in my next..
By the way.. Why am I flushing out excuses..’s not meant for you people.. I guess it’s just my self-realization…] signing off..and yes you.. Mr. too!!!

What’s cooking? Inside? Sniff..Sniff.
Stop, I say. Why the hell would I do the rounds to find those tit-bits? The veil of privacy has been shed!!! Isn’t it?
Do you notice the today of India? Yes.. the shedding of inhibitions… oh I do not mean to say flaunting in bikinis (that’s an age old story)… but the bed room gossips and affairs are out amidst the known and unknowns … finally baring the soul out!!!!
Obviously you have noticed. It’s virtual or actual; the fever has caught up the nation at large.
But did you seat back and think, WHY?
The time you remain tight-lipped ensured that you are satisfied..rather quite satisfied to be just a face in the crowd. Talent and out of the box thinking fetched recognition, but the common man starved .Even if they were hungry for their identity between the millions.. they were still silent. But today somehow the hunger has managed to overpower the inhibitions. The prickling at the back of the mind ~ How Would I Face The Society If I Unveil Those Hidden Facts Of My Life ~ has taken a back seat.
Yes, dear..the sole reason is carving a space among the million faces and to show that- YES, I EXIST AND THIS IS ME.
The Common Man was exhausted to lead the most “Common” Life..and when the concept of Social Communities rose , it was an instant hit!! People found their platform…the platform where he can pen down the thoughts… he can voice his likes and dislikes… eventually making the world aware : I AM HERE. Today the sharing of ideas, scribbling down the discussions are day to day affairs. And while I’m blogging down these articles, I do feel..I do not have the ability to stand in the middle of the avenue and shout out my thoughts…. It’s this space exclusively available for me..where I can freely accumulate and circulate my world of thoughts…. Yes..and while you are are being aware about me..and my all those haphazard notions. Certainly, that pleases me.
Appearing for quiz shows on the television channels did etch one out, but still was a test of his talent. Few days back when I sat back to watch people discussing about what happened under the bed sheets, expectations from life and wife (knowing that he is being scanned thoroughly in a national television channel).. I was in a dilemma!! Was the cash prize luring them to unveil those secrets??? Or, there was something bigger than this. And with the coming days, I realized the underlying reason : Identity Crisis!!! Even admitting the truth relieves you from the stresses..true.
The Court room dramas verify the fact.
The ordinary lives are nowadays getting a fascinating twist with the “blessings” of such new concepts ..and yes it’s on the rise. So, be a bit aware when you switch on the television next time ..maybe your ex-girlfriend is sitting on the hot seat …f*@k!!!!

The Editorial Venture ~ RELOADED

This time..I do not want to number this article.. It's a new episode..i am not very long it would proceed... so..its the WRITING SEASON RELOADED!!!...

As usual..after mailing my article..I started browsing for mine from the following day onwards... and it was the DAY..i was waiting for. Found my name first..that made me smile... but while I went through the content..i was a bit taken aback..!!! Phew..I was failing to recognize..the editing has taken a big role for the very first time...(previously..the editing was not on this large scale..)..

Here.. I am penning down..both the original and edited can only recognize yourself.the reason for my surprise...!!!!


The plight of ours so called “valuable life” still remains a toy in the hands of drivers!! Can we blame them for their outrageous action? Simply NO. After all they are the ‘driving force’ that are dominating the roadways for years and will continue to do mercilessly. The Drivers are least bothered about their lives, and you expect them to care for ours - a mere sorry case.

Recent newspaper reports regarding the road accidents do not only trigger the ira upon these uneducated and unethical drivers , but also towards those corrupted hands who have made 'responsible' venture to manipulate the system of law and order at large. It is quite evident that the commission system needs to be done away with as soon as possible so as to scrap away the competitive mind that thrives in the minds of those silly drivers. But unfortunately , the roots of corruption, have dug in so deep that the transport minister of our State sounds doubtful regarding whether he can do away with the commission system or not in recent conversations!!! Really "applaud able"..!!!

As long as the system does not receive a good thrashing from us , our life would continue to remain as a puppet in the hands of these cursed system and such 'feted' drivers. The ball (of life) is still in their court!!!


Calcutta remains at the mercy of bus drivers who have no regard for the lives of commutators.However, the ire against errant drivers should also be directed towards corrupt officials who manipulate the system and enable drivers to dodge the law. The commission system needs to be done away with immediately to stop buses from racing each other to get the maximum number of passengers. But the rot has gone so deep that even the new transport minister was unsure about doing away with this system,and could only say that he will "look into" the matter. Unless the people protest against such thoughtlessness , citizens will continue to be puppets in the hands of irresponsible drivers and administrators.

Did You See?..Well.certainly the change in language was disappointing..but while I realized..that the editorial board gave me a recognition pleased me. Even it was a short lesson. The editorial section trimmed it in the style that they wanted my letter to be. So, next time.. I would be more careful to shape up my feelings in that particular order.

Well..that's is what sums up for tonite!!..You all bored... ?? oh.. I don't care!!! It's my space..I'm enjoying democracy..LOL!!!

And the Abortive Venture Award went to...

Though there were few articles that didn't get published...and yes..true ..they were not upto the all...and list of bloopers as follows...


"With reference to the article "A SPECTACLE" (1st February,2008), our bangali's very own BAPPI DA (Bappi Lahiri) can certainly make an entry in the list with his SPECTACULAR EYE WEAR collection i.e. either with his sunglasses or "moon"glasses that are ornamenting his eyes all day all night long !! Well its a million dollar question for me whether he takes them off during his sleep or not!! Accompanied with the gold ornaments wrapping him and his own "BHINDI- ( 'b'engali + 'hindi' ) " vocabularies, the special GLASSES do define our Disco King all in all !!!!! kyaaaaaa ???????"


"With reference to the Lead Story "AFTER EFFECT" dated 1st february 2008,how about remebering MADHAVAN-DIYA MIRZA starrer REHNA HAIN TERE DIL MEIN for being candyfloss romantic entertainer??

Though it waz a total let down at the box office, but you surf the channels and most of the time you will bump over this flick for sure and to be very precise with the film does set a light hearted mood wid MADDY wooing debutante DIYA MIRZA, the mesmerizing numbers playing in the background like "ZAARA ZAARA " ( the music still remains hot favourite) and others accompanied with a short but powerful performance by chote nawab SAIF ALI KHAN strumming the guitar or going head on collision with MADHAVAN really sets RHTDM as a good timepass movie with a popcorn in one hand and a soft drink in the another.

So this fillum is worthy enough to say "Rehna Hain Tere LIST Mein"..


"With reference to the article HEADLINES 2025 dated 11 March 2008, some more issues that can make there way on the newspaper's front page are :

1. To celebrate and establish WORLD PEACE day, George W. Bush and Osama BIn Laden gets engaged. They have decided to invite only one personality from INDIA , and she is none other than MAMATA BANERJEE - the "biggest idol of PEACE"..!!!!!

2.Ratan Tata launches "TATA MICRO" with special features of flying into the air if stuck in the road traffic or getting rescued from water logged areas.

3.Jyoti Basu decides to stand for the elections as he feels that WEST BENGAL is missing the "GOOD OLD DAYZ OF BASU RULE".

4.Children from standards 3-6are the main visitors of PARK STREET pubs as they mostly go to enjoyia chiiling CHAMPAGNE drink at the bars as post exam celebration.

5.PALM TOP is is the time for FINGER TOP. With a one inch small screen ,a small pinch can help us to expand the TOUCH SCREEN of the FINGERTOP and carry out our necessary tasks.

6.After the super success of ORKUT, here comes from a BENGAL a social communicating site called "BIS KOOT" where not only people can chat but will be served with tea time snacks beside a small hollow space of the monitor.

7.PIRACY of BLUE RAY DISCS have been widespread all over the market.

8.MICROWAVE OVEN are now being password protected so that small kids can't access them or create any damage.


10.SRK now has concentrated upon WWE after getting inspired from THE GREAT KHALI's perfromance and has decided to "buy" him and give a tagline "PHAD DE! INDIA"..!!!!!!

11.TUSHAR KAPOOR's waz model to be unveiled at MADAM TAUSSAD by SYLVESTER STALLONE !!!

12. RAM GOPAL VARMA decides to make an animation film on RGV KA AAG and Ramesh Sippy has decided to produce it!!!

But seriously what i truly want to see in the headlines of all newspaper is that THE TELEGRAPH is ranked as the NEWSPAPER OF ALL TIMES and is the number one in the business and t2 being the No. 1 ENTERTAINMENT SUPPLEMENT ."



"Here goes my very very special message to our KHAN DADA who has got a new KHANDAAN set out right here for us (kash SHAH RUKH ji ...aap yea letter par sakte the....)~

"Badi shiddat se tumhe paane ki kosish ki hain..har zaarre ne tumhe mujhse milane ki sazish ki hain...."-that is the only thing coming in my mind after you created THE BONG CONNECTION !! It is like "shonai sohaga" especially for your crazy fan following in bengal( that includes me very very much)... not only you have set the tempo high... we are really getting drownd in the cricket fever that you have generated within this period of time.Donning the role of a KING in d small screen , BAADSHAH of bollywood.... it is you only who can successfully get on being the SHAHENSHAH of the new revised entertaiment called CRICKET.What a grand "annoprashon" for the KNIGHT RIDERS it has been with your presence....and hats off to the deadly combo.. getting DADA by your side.. what more can KOLKATA ask for..???and more and more kudos to you for making a wonderful site of you team which is so well poised with all its great grand features.Last but not the least,cuming up with the "KORBO,LORBO. JITBO RE' anthem by tying up with the deadly duos of music industry, u have proved it again the BAADSHAH can never go wrong in his way of ruling..!!!

If given a chance to pen down some lines for you and your team .. then here goes my version-

"Break free gotta get some chhutti ..tod do har zanjeero ko…
Break free get ready kyon ki…aa rahe hain SRK and DADA go…

They gonna rule....makin no bhool yahi hain dawa sola aane.....
The KNIGHT RIDERS are here ..making you go paagal deewane....

Phad de ve... tor du ve... jo aayenge hume lagane thikane
We are the KOLKATA-r notun pran...jene naao o anjaane.....

Hey dude..zaara tu sa bachkke tu aab se rehna re...
Because Amrai toh korbo..amrai toh lorbbo..amrai toh ebar jitbbo re."....

E (SRK).... tum bore toh nahin ho rahe ho....!!!!"

The Editorial Venture ~ Part V

[Preamble: The last one in the session...with which I will finish of my trumpet blowing syndrome. The "LETTER OF THE WEEK" which got published while asked to pen down the new curriculum that can be added by the Bachchan family in their upcoming project of opening an institute]

"With reference to the article “ MODEL SCHOOL ” published on 3rd March 2008, some more curriculum can be added up for this trendy school to make it a completely hatke one..!!!!


Big and Small B can both take up this extempore classes for guiding students and developing them for the betterment of speech delivery taking the instance of films like LAGAAN and others. The kids can even impart this skill in the advertisements..!!!


Big B will be the ideal teacher to help the students keep fit so that they can continue to ROCK n’ ROLL till the age of 65 or even more..!!!


This special course should be taken up by the three – Senior AB, Junior AB, Bahu AB so that even if a student fails to succeed in his own desired path , that individual can easily switch off to the Ad world for ‘fame’ and money..!!!!!


If you see a XII standard student romancing a III standard student in the school campus …. You can very well understand Amit ji’s has imparted the basic knowledge ….”Arre umar kya cheez hain.. dil ko dekho yaar”…. !!! Guest lecturers can be appointed for this class and they are none other than MISS JIAH KHAN and TABU.!!!!


They comprises the mandatory session of the school as importance of "puja paths" and wearing stones of different colours on all the fingers will be taught there!!


"No loosing hope... if you fail once..again you can take up a disastrous path to fail again ... no hurry at all.. whenever success needs to come up it will turn need to run after success..!!!!!"
The mentors there will be stressing upon this statement as they know how to give deliver flos after flops continuosly in more than 10 films and how to get drowned in "AAG" even after creating a "NISHABD" massacre..!!!!

If all these sessions can be compiled and executed , definitely we can say proudly ...... "WHAT AN IDEA"L SCHOOL , SIRJI...!!!!!"

The Editorial Venture ~ Part IV

[Preamble: t2 wanted the readers to prescribe some "NANO" modes which can be implemented after Ratan Tata launched the most interesting and of course, the most controversial vehicle of the era. Lucky article finished with a winning note]

"With reference to the article "SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL" (Wednesday,20 February) some more things or people do find their way in the list as follows:

a) HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY SYLLABUS: The contents of history books should be made short and compact or else it really makes us go krazzzyyyy remembering the peculiar dates like when AKBAR killed whom and the day when Bhagat Singh started shouting “INQUILAB ZINDABAD” ; and continuing with the Geography books , the list of jowar and bajra crops growing here and there in India or knowing where the rain washes away a part of the country..remebering all these lists chapter after chapter really gives a horrifying feel,and while the exams start knocking at the door …. it results in saying “THE SYLLABUS IS DANCING"..!!!!!!!!!

b)SHORTENING OF MOBILE CONNECTION PROVIDERS "COMMENTARY": Everytime the date of recharging of balance in our cell phone approaches,the service providers start calling us up, and while we make our important calls they again give out their "lectures" each and every moment prior to our call..!!!Give a reminder once for God's sake..!!!!!!!!

c)A PLEAD TO ASHUTOSH GOWARIKER AND KARAN JOHAR FOR MAKING FILMS - Ashu ji and Johar saab can entertain us with their films only, no need to go for those three and half hours of "documentaries" !!!or else next time ur masterpieces would find place in 'THE HISTORY CHANNEL'..!!!!!!

d)LESS OF MANDIRA BEDIS OR RAKHI SAWANTS - These type of women are in the news or tv shows to make all the stuffs boring and painful,so if it is impossible to say a bye bye for you...atleast give a break!!! thoda to rehem karo..!!!!!!

e)CUT DOWN THE ASTROLOGY SHOWS - Either these programs should be lessened to a great extent or better they should be packed away.... arrey pehle khud koh toh samhalo..phir hum logo ko samhalnaa ASRTOLOGER saab!!!!!"

The Editorial Venture ~ Part III

[Preamble: t2 announced 7th February as "RUN FOR YOUR LIFE DAY" . And asked us to articulate a fictional situation which would make anyone run for his life. Mine bagged "THE LETTER OF THE WEEK" title]

"With reference to the article "RUN FOR YOUR LIFE DAY" dated 7 th february,2008,a burning news can be added up to create a massacre in bollywood!!!!

The "never ending soap" maker Ekta Kapoor has decided to take up the Director's chair for the first time and decided to take Tusshar Kapoor in the lead (to extract his "hidden talent as an actor" which till date remain "unnoticed") after some 'big bollywood stars' turned it down !!!! The Siblings say -

Ekta Kapoor: 'The movie is tentatively titled Kyunki Kahani Abhi Baki Hain.." and will be released in sequels till Tushhar doesn't receive a FILMFARE AWARD in the BEST ACTOR CATEGORY.'

Tusshar Kapoor: ' It is going to be my dream project with all the actors and actresses from Ekta's serial coming up for brief roles (!!!) , and talks are going on with KATRINA KAIF for being the lead actress in this project.'

( hey,KAT run!!!! or else TUSSHAR will present you with the nightmare of your career!!!)

Well TUSSHAR's role was first offered to UDAY CHOPRA ( he turned it down as he is busy with his home production 'NEAL N' NIKKI :2') and then to ZAYED KHAN. The latter also turned it down because he says he had talked to STEVEN SPIELBERG for re-making his movie "ROCKY" and if things get finalised, ZAYED smiles amd says : Nobody gonna stop me from bagging the OSCAR this time....'!!!!!

SRK,AMIR are you people listening????? or else... had they run away from BOLLYWOOD!!!!!!!!"

The Editorial Venture ~ Part II

[Preamble : It was t2's first anniversary and readers were asked to pour down their wishes. And mine was... ]

When the sun spreads its smile over my face
I sprang and jump up right from my base,

Running to the balcony I search for t2
You lie in front and say " Here I'm just for you",

Not only today, not only yesterday
You spread an everlasting smile day after day,

Everyday I pray for you to prosper and grow
So that each of your anniversaries go dashing in a row,

Dressing yourself up in all cool stuffs as you make us smile
Today I especially wish you to move forever mile after mile,

So with lots and lots of love i just wanna say
many many many haapy returns of the day.... :)

The Editorial Venture ~ Part I

[Preamble : After Shah Rukh Khan became the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, t2 asked the readers to pen down their thoughts predicting what could be the next investment plan of SRK in Bnegal. t2 suggested some ideas. Readers were asked to add few more.I took the attempt and was quie successful in making my article ~ " LETTER OF THE DAY" ]

The article :

"With reference to the article BUY BUY,SRK (26 th Jan.2008), according to me, a vital thing that needs to be added in that list and that is a SHOPPING MALL by d Baadshah!!
He is such a big brand name and endorsing more or less each and every item ranging from Pepsi to Himalaya Sona Chandi to Belmonte Suitings to Hyndai i10 a mall would be a superb concept with all the brands coming in with their showrooms!! Even the short kurtas or Suits that are worn by him in a particular film can be displayed and distributed through lucky draws!! Again,a multiplex within it to run SRK’s new films along with his old flickz and even a small counter can be made from where KBC IV’s entry form will be available!!! Last but not the least,wid SRK turning out to be the new item boy of bollywood a centre stage to be made where he can come up to perform the “Dard” or “No-dard” Discozzz.!!!! And if a SIX FLOOR shopping mall can be made, what can be d better name for it –‘SRK’ mall bole to ‘S’IX ‘R’ACK ‘K’OUNTRY mall!!!!"

Down the memory lane...

I had a happy morning today. After the previous attempts, finally my letter got to see the light of the day in the Telegraph's main editorial section. I'm satisfied. But not overjoyed. Yes, because it's nothing new to me, after all. For the freshers, I used to pen down articles for the "T2" ~ the entertainment papyrus that is circulated with The Telegraph. And during that time only I realized that I had a spree in writing. As I had earlier stated, I never had he knack to go through the serious stuffs in the newspapers.And editorial section was a strictly no-no for me. Letters to Editor was confined for the intellectuals nad luckily some got their names flashed!!! ~ summed up my misbelievings!!
Umm.. it was in the month of January .. previous year only, I saw some of the letters of my acquaintances getting published!!!... Not a Big Deal..then..Man!!! I uncorked the digital ink and started penning down my thoughts on various issues..and yes..they got successively published as Letters of the Day..Week..bla bla..from the very first day!!! Things went quite good...but maybe I was turning a bit arrogant.. I guess...!!! Whatever I would be scribbling...would be an instant hit!!! ~ another misconception stuck my bloody head!!!..And I realized this when few articles of mine went non-published!!!! I learnt from my mistakes very soon though...but one article...I penned it down with care..and it is still close to my heart....failed to make a space for itself again!!! Maybe i was damn egoistic...I stopped penning down any such articles..and vowed not to write again!!!!
Well..well... dayz passed..and I realized my mistakes... I needed to improve from my side...and I backed myslef with the words ~ "try..try and u'you gonna be successful". This time I wanted to expand the horizon..and I made the main editorial section as my new target. And making quite a contrary to my previous venture , I failed to make a mark with my first second one...and the third one ..!!!!!! But yes..I have improved myslef...I never gave up my hope... I expanded my attempts...though were few in numbers!!! But still...and by the way... within this span.. this lovely blogging bite has kept me pre-occupied. It's a refresher...I say. And certainly..I am having an affair with CTC... and why not... it is the only one who provides me the space to scribble and say...pouring down my emotions with my heart out...without protesting... it allows me to remain as I am.. Love ya..CTC..for giving me the space...
And today..while..I got to see the letter in the editorial section.. I felt..nostalgic..and yes..this was the space..where I had to say everything..simply everything.... And for many..who never saw my previous trysts with writing...I would be updating this space..only.. \m/
