Wat if other directors made Taare Zameen Par?! good one!

If Karan Johar made Taare
Obvious starcast:
Shah Rukh Khan as the arts teacher (duh duh duh!!).
Aryan Khan as the dyslexic child (even if he could not act for nuts).
Rani Mukerjee as the kid’s mom (assuming Kajol is unavailable).
Abhishek Bachchan as the kid’s dad.
Amitabh Bachchan as the school principal (who cares if the role is ultra minute, he can afford it).

It would be shot in New York to appeal to the NRI audience.
The story line would obviously be different. SRK would fall for the dyslexic kid’s mom. The last scene would have the mom running to the teacher rather than the kid. And again, like in so many other movies, SRK would get someone else’s girl.
It would have one dance number.
The film would be titled ‘Kuch Taare Zameen Par.’

If Sanjay Leela Bhansali made Taare
Obvious starcast:

Salman as the teacher.
Rani as the mother.
Of course the whole film would be shot on elaborate sets. The school would be nothing short of Harvard university.
An orchestra would play every time anyone cried.
Slow motion, different camera angles for every scene.
The school uniforms would match the classroom walls
The film would cost 60 crores.

If Farah Khan made Taare
Obvious starcast:
SRK as the teacher (yawn).
In the original Taare, Aamir makes an entry at the interval point. In Farah’s version, SRK would be on screen on for 2.30 hrs out of the 2.45 hrs and would be introduced in the first scene itself.
The story would be changed to make sure the above happened. The focus of the film would be a teacher who helps a kid fight dyslexia.
To make it a complete entertainer, there would be a romantic angle, comedy, and action thrown in. Oh idea!! Nikumbh’s character likes another teacher and the kiddo helps him.. throw in some comedy moments there and you have romance and comedy settled. For action.. hmm.. lemme see.. oh yah, the kid gets kidnapped and the teacher fights the baddies to save him. Wow!! I’m quite an imaginative writer. I can see how Farah can write a film from scratch in two weeks straight.

The film posters would have a big SRK with the tiny image of the kid in the background.

If Rakesh Roshan made Taare
Obvious starcast:
Hrithik Roshan as the teacher.
Since Rakesh Roshan cannot think beyond science fiction these days, this film would have that too. Instead of dyslexia, the kid would have alienositis or something, a condition induced due to him witnessing an alien abduction.
Instead of Nikumbh being an arts teacher, he would be a physics teacher, and instead of asking kids to be creative, he would ask them to challenge the science we know.
In the scene where Nikumbh asks the kids to open their minds and make whatever they want outdoors, the kid Ishaan, instead of making a boat, would end up making a working spaceship prototype.
Nikumbh would cure the kids problem by making a full fledged version of the kid’s prototype, traveling to the alien planet, and asking them to give the kid his powers back.
The film would have music by Rajesh Roshan ripped off from some world music.
The film’s name would again start with a K.. probably ‘Kuch Aliens Taaron se Zameen Par’.
The director would make sure Hrithik gets to show all his abilities. This would mean a scene with Roshan jr flexing his muscles, and a dance competition in the end, instead of an arts competition.

Need the cup or the coffee?

A group of alumni, highly established in their
careers, got together to visit their old university
Conversation soon turned into complaints about
stress in work and life.
Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to
the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee
and an assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic,
glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive,
some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to
hot coffee.
When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand,
the professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice
looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind
the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for each
of you to want only the best for yourselves, that
is the source of your problems and stress. What all
of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but
you consciously went for the best cups and were
eyeing each other's cups. Now if life is coffee,
then the jobs, money and position in society are the
cups. They are just tools to hold and
contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't
change. Some times, by concentrating only on the cup,
we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."
So, don't let the cups only drive you... enjoy
the coffee (instead)

MBA vs Bcom student! good one :)

MBA Vs Bcom Student
>> This particular joke won an award for the best joke in a
>> competition organized in Britain and this joke was sent by an
>> Indian..
>> A MBA and a Bcom go on a camping trip, set up their tent,and
>> fell asleep.Some hours later, the Bcom wakes his MBA friend. " look up
>> at the sky and tell me what you see."
The MBA replies, "I see millions of stars."
"What does that tell you?"
The MBA ponders for a minute.
"Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are
millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.
Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.
Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past
Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all-powerful and
we are small and insignificant.
Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day
What does it tell you?"
The Bcom is silent for a moment, then speaks.
"Practically...Someone has stolen our tent".

Facts about women..cntd

Women can't keep secrets. They eat away at them from the inside. And they don't view it as being untrustworthy, providing they only tell two or three people.

Women keep three different shampoos and two different conditioners in the shower. After a woman showers, the bathroom will smell like a tropical rain forest.

If a man goes on a seven-day trip, he'll pack five days worth of clothes and will wear some things twice; if a woman goes on a seven-day trip she'll pack 21 outfits because she doesn't know what she'll feel like wearing each day.

Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.

Women love to talk on the phone. A woman can visit her girlfriend for two weeks, and upon returning home, she will call the same friend and they will talk for three hours.

It was good fun reading it. wasn't it?! ;)

women power?! :P

Silent Treatment

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each
other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day,
he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
"Please wake me at 5:00 AM " He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM
and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and
see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by
the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.


A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws".

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day...
30,000 to a man's 15,000.
The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"


A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time."
The wife responded, "Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!"


A man and his wife were having an argument about who
should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first,
and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."
The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and
you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible
that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament
and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.........."HEBREWS"

God may have created man before woman,
but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece

Facts about women!

Women love to shop. It is the one area of the world where they feel like they're actually in control.
Women especially love a bargain. The question of "need" is irrelevant, so don't bother pointing it out. Anything on sale is fair game.
Women never have anything to wear. Don't question the racks of clothes in the closet; you "just don't understand".
Women need to cry. And they won't do it alone unless they know you can hear them.
Women will always ask questions that have no right answer, in an effort to trap you into feeling guilty.
Women love to talk.Silence intimidates them and they feel a need to fill it, even if they have nothing to say.
Women hate bugs. Even the strong-willed ones need a man around when there's a spider or a wasp involved.


Its 1:30 Am and my eyes are refusing to shut, how much ever hard that I try..! Recollecting back certain conversations that I had today, one tats significant is de movie dasavataram..! its a movie which has been in hype for a long time, a movie which i personally feel was worth a wait..! There has been dis n number of discussions, reviews, blogs which 've read on dis movie, some of which were truly brilliant that i thot 'll pen down couple of my thoughts on dis movie! usually, When ppl watch movies, its of three kinds.. movies for fun, movies meant ONLY for commenting on it and movies which convey a meaning..! I am unable to classify dasavataram in any of three kinds, this itself shows that the movie stands a CLASS APART!! :)So 'd like to say couple of things which moved me in this movie..

wat i liked most in this movie, undoubtedly, KAMAL! he was jus brilliant!The potrayal of ten roles, each to perfection was jus amazing..!! Personally i thought the movie lacked the usual kamal touch,esp when comparing this to movies of his like nayagan, anbe sivam, to say a few.. but i had liked his effort in linking each character together! guess a lot has been said on each of kamal's character and chaos and butterfly thoery ect etc.. 'd just like to mention couple of things which captured my attention in dis movie significantly.
To start with the opening track, kalli mattum-jus amazing.. lyrics were simple but very moving!hats off to hariharan, he's sung this song with perfect emotional blend!
christian Fletcher-my fav character of kamal's..yea yea, i know of all his ten i liked this the best,, actually i dunno why, but the minute i saw this character of his, i found him very arresting..he radiated this power through this character of his, that i enjoyed it the best! and of course to mention 95 years old patti and his imitation of george bush! super!
The scene where kamal was tied to lord perumal at first and also one another where he catches the lord at the dawn of tsunami.. the screen shots where superb!
The way they'd showed the tsunami effect, it was really nice.. i hav always heard of the magnitude of the disaster but wen i saw de movie i actually felt it!
two others scenes also 'd liked, the way krishneveni patti locked herself in the cupboard..! i found de scene too cute! and the fighting sequence between Shingen Narahashi and christian, for a minute wen i saw de japanese character of kamal's i couldn jus believe it which makes me add one other point.. usually wen a movie releases, ppl talk of de acting, direction, music, max costumes! but i thought with out make up, no way could have kamal exhibited his ten roles that he'd dreamed..! if he was able to potray to us each character he'd visualied, its only due credit to the make up artist, westmoor! half of kamal's success in his acting was because he was depicted so well to the audience!I found Asin quite annoying in this movie,[ no offense to asin fans!] and mallika, i actually wondered why she was even there in de movie and the dubbing of her voice was jus awful!! These are couple of things which i wanted to mention on de top of my head..anything else, will edit this blog!

All in all, a movie by kamal, for kamal and of kamal!

good one

Today, upon a bus, I saw a girl with golden hair

I looked at her and sighed and wished I was as fair.

When suddenly she rose to leave,

I saw her hobble down the aisle.

She had one leg and used a crutch

But as she passed, she passed a smile.

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine

I have 2 legs, the world is mine.


I stopped to buy some candy

The lad who sold it had such charm

I talked with him a while, he seemed so very glad

If I were late, it'd do no harm.

And as I left, he said to me,

"I thank you, you've been so kind.

It's nice to talk with folks like you.

You see," he said, "I'm blind."

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

I have 2 eyes, the world is mine.


Later while walking down the street,

I saw a child with eyes of blue

He stood and watched the others play

He did not know what to do.

I stopped a moment and then I said,

"Why don't you join the others, dear?"

He looked ahead without a word.

And then I knew, he couldn't hear.

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

I have 2 ears, the world is mine.


With feet to take me where I'd go.

With eyes to see the sunset's glow.

With ears to hear what I would know.

Oh, God, forgive me when I whine.

I've been blessed indeed, The world is mine.


If this poem makes you feel like I felt,

just forward it to all your friends,

after all, it's just a simple reminder....

We have soooooo much to be thankful for!!!


Sorrow looks back,

Worry looks around,

Faith looks up

deadlock.. good one!

Really a class analogy!

This story is written perfectly how us Indians behave and treat our own kind. The story covers the recent time period but it explains why India was ruled by invaders such as Muslims and British for last 500 years. Some one has made a statement that says ' India is the only country that has never invaded other country' Dha...

Today thanks to USA for out sourcing their labor force to India and making Indians rich. While American billionaires are giving billions to charity our Indian billionaire is busy building billion dollar house in the country where 50% or more people are living in poverty.

An Old Story:
The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and
laying up supplies for the winter. The Grasshopper thinks the Ant is a fool and laughs & dances & plays the summer away.

Come winter, the Ant is warm and well fed. The Grasshopper has no food or
shelter so he dies out in the cold.

Indian Version:

The Ant works hard in the withering heat all summer building its house and
laying up supplies for the winter.

The Grasshopper thinks the Ant's a fool and laughs & dances & plays the
summer away.

Come winter, the shivering Grasshopper calls a press conference and
demands to know why the Ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed
while others are cold and starving.

NDTV, BBC, CNN show up to provide pictures of the shivering Grasshopper
next to a video of the Ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

The World is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be that this poor
Grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Arundhati Roy stages a demonstration in front of the Ant's house.

Medha Patkar goes on a fast along with other Grasshoppers demanding that
Grasshoppers be relocated to warmer climates during winter ..

Mayawati states this as `injustice' done on Minorities.

Amnesty International and Kofi Annan criticize the Indian Government for
not upholding the fundamental rights of the Grasshopper.

The Internet is flooded with online petitions seeking support to the
Grasshopper (many promising Heaven and Everlasting Peace for prompt
support as against the wrath of God for non-compliance) ..

Opposition MPs stage a walkout. Left parties call for 'Bengal Bandh' in
West Bengal and Kerala demanding a Judicial Enquiry.

CPM in Kerala immediately passes a law preventing Ants from working hard
in the heat so as to bring about equality of poverty among Ants and
Lalu Prasad allocates one free coach to Grasshoppers on all Indian Railway
Trains, aptly named as the 'Grasshopper Rath'.

Finally, the Judicial Committee drafts the ' Prevention of Terrorism
Against Grasshoppers Act' [POTAGA], with effect from the beginning of the
Arjun Singh makes 'Special Reservation ' for Grasshoppers in Educational
Institutions & in Government Services.

The Ant is fined for failing to comply with POTAGA and having nothing left
to pay his retroactive taxes,it's home is confiscated by the Government
and handed over to the Grasshopper in a ceremony covered by NDTV.

Arundhati Roy calls it ' A Triumph of Justice'.

Lalu calls it 'Socialistic Justice '.

CPM calls it the ' Revolutionary Resurgence of the Downtrodden '

Kofi Annan invites the Grasshopper to address the UN General Assembly.

Many years later...

The Ant has since migrated to the US and set up a multi-billion dollar company in Silicon Valley,

100s of Grasshoppers still die of starvation despite reservation somewhere
in India,

As a result of loosing lot of hard working Ants and feeding the
India is still a developing country…!!!

CPR- de difference it makes to save a person's life

For a long time I have been wanting to put this down here…after a lot of information collected from doctors, the net and from magazines I am gonna put this down here…this is one post which I jus don want ppl to read but actually learn it and spread it to as many as possible…wat I am gonna talk abt here is how u could administer a CPR(cardio pulmonary resuscitation) to a person whose jus lost his heart beat!! So here I go to tell u wat u should do to become a life saver and ultimately “GOD “to that persons FAMILY AND FRIENDS…
Firstly be bold and act smartly rather than shyin away from the up the ambulance and rush to the victim. If the victim shows no signs of breathing,let the person lie down with chin facing up. Tilt the head back, pinch the nose and cover the victim s mouth with ur mouth and blow until u see the chest rise. Then put ur hands on the centre of the chest and press. Keep pumping the chest atleast 100 times until the person responds or until help arrives.

Trust me it doesn require a medical degree to do this..all it requires is a sensible and fast action.I witnessed the importance this made in my friend and thought of imparting this to u. After all, U give de person a second chance to live!

now here s the link wher u can see how to administer cpr to a person...
