It has been a very long time since I spent some time at this place. Life has taken some very serious curves. I am no longer the IT-brat who used to earn enough to survive a month on the first day of each month, and then used to wonder where all of it has gone, probably by the mid of the month. I have joined the many other thousands of pagal guys who decide to become Administrators, yeah I joined for my Masters in Administration. Now, the technical details does not allow me to say that I am pursuing MBA, but it's something similar to that.

I am currently at Ghaziabad, a town very close to the UP-Delhi border. It is not a very great town to be, compared to the other places I have lived in my life. But the area in which I live is pretty posh, our neighbors being the District Collector, ACP etc. Hostel is good. Food is not that good. But overall, life is fun!

MTV Roadies - Hell Down Under- Post 2

Roadies is the show of the unexpected!- This statement has been given so much hype that the audience themselves think about all possible unexpected twists the show can have, even before Raghu/Ranvijay discloses what the twist is.

And the Roadies team the mistake of revealing one of these twists in the form of trailers. Hence Sufi, Nauman and Palak returning to the show was not as big a shocker it was supposed to be.

The water ball task looked cool, I personaly would like to do that some time.

Bye Bye Pradeep- You were supposed to be the "Singh is Kingh", but you were more of the Santa-Banta type.

Bye Bye Kiri - You were not to the par, never!

Bye Bye Bobbie- After all the unexpected limelight....

and Bye Bye Sandeep - Good work till now, but I would like to see Natasha single! [:P]

Roadies 6.0 Hell Down Under-1

You love it or hate it, but you can't just ignore it.

Because MTV plays that 25 * 8..!

I started following the MTV Roadies since its fourth version, and have remained loyal to the 'spoilt brats' and their pranks since then. The whole stuff has been a entertaiment package, starting from the auditions and then the various tasks and vote-outs and then some nobody will become somebody.

Back to Roadies 6.0,

Bye Bye Nauman, I will really miss your glances on the Cam! Honestly, he reaaly did not know how to behave in a reality show and used to stare at the Camera every now and then.

Roop still remains my favourite roadie.

India broadcasted abroad....

Yesterday, I managed to complete two works of Art, which was being discussed across the world recently.

1. The White Tiger

The debut novel from Aravind Adiga was in the News after winning the coveted Booker Prize for 2008. And last time when I went to the Kottayam Public Library, I asked for the book and fortunately they had a copy avaliable. Started reading it on Monday and completed it yesterday.

I am not the one to right a review on the book. So many have done that. But I just think if that novel can make it to the Booker, many people in India who write in their vernalculars should seriously think about writing in English.

2. Slumdog Millionaire

This was a complete surprise for me. I remember reading the novel Q and A , during my college days. Someone in my hostel had a copy, and it reached me one fine day. I started reading it just to kill some spare time, and completed it in one go. I found the novel really interesting. It did not have the hype and hoolah of Chethan Bhagath's novels, which were becoming Icons of English Fiction of India. And over a period of time, even I forgot about the novel.

Last week, I came across the review of a new Hollywood movie, based in India, called Slumdog Millionaire, and the Plot was so familiar to me.

Yesterday, I watched the movie. If I remeber correctly, the movie version has a different life for the Hero, and hence different set of questions. But they have done a nice job.

Screen Play Writer Chethan Bhagath may kindly refer this movie to understand , how to create good screenplays from books.
