College Fashion Show

April 19, 2009

fashion

This is the story at the eve of college annual function “Trifles”. It’s my final year in college, so all of us decided to attend the function which is actually not so fun for us. Because college does it in very wretched way by booking the neighbor college auditorium, which not so big to take account of all the students and we don’t have sovereignty to enjoy completely. There are so many quizzes but everyone is interested in participating as audience, so those are not so fun since participation is poor and those who participate, Oh! My God, are simply horrible unbearable students. So we don’t usually attend this function.

Only good thing in all the functions is ‘Fashion Show’ competition because girls from other colleges take part and it’s like ecstasy for our (boys!) eyes.

Someone has said “99% of the girls are beautiful and remaining 1% are in my college” so we watch out for competitors (and cheer for them too) from other colleges.

I’ll get back to the topic, so this was my last time to attend the ‘Fashion Show’ and I went to watch it at the scheduled time forgetting its IST, Indian Stretchable Time. The show started 2 hours late, so to keep audience engaged, actually auditorium we were using in other college was a HSC exam centre, so to keep crowd quiet they started another competition ‘Personality Test’ and it was a disaster. Crowd could’ve sat quietly if they wouldn’t have started this show. The crowd became completely out of control that that college’s Principal threatened us (not us, actually our college authority) that they won’t allow our college to use their auditorium again.

Watching her (Principal of other college) shout at our prof. was entertaining than watching that catastrophic Personality contest.

So after long wait fashion show finally began, there were 3 groups from other college and one from our college (Which no one was interested in).

The guests were designer Rohit Varma, some model,I forgot her name (Bgaurav-dagoankarut still remember her face) who is an engineer too and an alumni Gaurav Dagaonkar (in pic) singer of famous song ‘College Days’ and one more male model.

Guess which group performed first, undoubtedly our college group. It was unbelievably excellent; the girls were looking so elegant, stunning, gorgeous blah blah!!! Everyone was where were all these girls these years and it was like if our college can perform so well then we were sure we are going to witness good quality stuff today. (Pardon me, but there are no other words to describe it)

So our college’s theme was love, marriage and sex (do you believe that this word was used in college function, its Mumbai anything can happen), erosion of the queen of some group of ‘adiwasis’ and so much more. It started, it was enjoyable at the initial stage then it became literally vulgar (I mean more enjoyable and erotic). Cloths (Or costumes whatever) were all old times tribal, like if something goes wrong on stage cloths will come off. (I mean what the girls were thinking, when they decided to wore those costumes) They used a song in the background called ‘Anan Panan’ something like that. The song was good to hear. (Everyone one was like should we support them or not)ramp

Then one after the other groups performed and we were  like wow! All were definitely generation next type performances leaving behind the Indian culture or whatever. Costumes used were damn good, themes oh my god and girls what can I say. Background score varied from Nayan Barse from Dev D to Pussycat dolls’ ‘Don’t ya wish’ to ‘Wake me up inside’ to some Hyderabadi song (our college theme in 2nd round was of prostitutes or mujra walis, err it was gross)

And facial expressions were enticing and teasing. That was the best part, I guess.

The last group was from girl’s college and it was totally rapture performance. They even got a one’s more response and even a standing ovation from my college crowd who is never supportive (Jitna mar sakta hai utana marne ki koshish karega). All the girls were too attractive and one important thing everyone was in limit (except one she was too bold), costumes were comparatively decent and themes were attention grabbin’ and it was fun watching them perform.

The Girl’s college group won the contest and it was well deserved win. It’s not that they were good; every performance was above anyone’s imaginations, all sexy (!). But other group’s definition of ‘sexy’ was to expose to arouse (that even our Vice Principal ma’am went out watching this indecency)

The winners were sexy in looks and decent to look at.

rohit-vermaThe fun part is that the designer guy (he was totally behaving weird or it was new to me, I don’t know) said also “It was embarrassing to see the vulgar fashion show” and he was gnashing his teeth fuming (I think because everyone started making fun when he came on stage).

Then the engineer model came to cool off the atmosphere saying ‘I’m also engineer, I was expecting much more from you guyz, where is all the creativity and all that blah blah blah’

(Everyone was probably witnessing Fashion show of that grade for the first time and we thought what more could they’ve done than this yaar.)

This doesn’t end here, next day my friends debated for an hour about the fashion show, that it was indecent, filthy and vulgar. But nobody said anything while watching, rather everyone was shouting, gave a round of applause and now after guests said so and Vice Principal got out, they changed their opinion that it was vulgar (Its wrong that is what I thought).

My Favorite Dialogue

April 15, 2009

Few days back I watched a movie named V for Vendetta. Movie’s good. In that movie I got my favorite dialogue which I was searching for.

v-portman

The scene was there’s curfew in the city and a young gorgeous woman is out on the road after curfew is in action, the young woman is the lead character ‘heroine’ of the movie. (I wonder why always lead female characters went out alone at night, if movie’s action or tragedy or suspense)

So she is stopped by some bad guys (or cops, I didn’t understand that part, movie’s slightly difficult to understand) and they try to mistreat her.

v-maskThen to her aid comes our hero, a masked hero, he saves her with brave and funnier action stunts (maybe to impress her than to save her).

After all bad guys are either ran away or faded. The brave actress asks the mask man,

“Who are you?”

And the following dialogue is the answer to her question-

“In View, a humble Vaudevillian Veteran cast Vicariously as both Victim and Villain by the Vicissitudes of fate. This Visage, no mere Veneer of Vanity is a Vestige of the Vox populi, now Vacant, Vanished. However, this Valorous Visitation of a bygone Vexation stands Vivified and has Vowed to Vanquish these Venal and Virulent Vermin Vanguarding Vice and Vouchsafing the Violently Vicious and Voracious Violation of Volition. The only Verdict is Vengeance, a Vendetta…held as a Votive not in Vain, for the Value and Veracity of such…shall one day Vindicate the Vigilant and the Virtuous. Verily, this Vichyssoise of Verbiage Veers most Verbose. So let me simply add that it’s my Very good honor to meet you……and you may call me V.”v-for-vendetta-logo-wallpaper1

If you have noticed there are 48 Vs used in 9 lines and nothing is placed or used forcefully or nothing is irrelevant.

Now that’s creativity!

(If you want I have complete translated version of this dialogue, it’s simply amazing)

As my name starts with S, I’m trying hard to replace those V words with S words. And through that will tell you about myself.

Prelude to a Kiss

April 14, 2009

Few days ago I read an article in a newspaper about facts regarding KISS. It was so irrelevant (I thought!) to the topic of kissing. It was about what you actually share other than passion and love when you KISS someone. They even have a scientific name for kissing, snogging, osculating and bussing which is “Philematology.”

It had all the survey results and all that to prove the facts. Even now in this modern era talking about sex or KISS is like violating the “Good Family” rules in Indian culture, but anyways my parents are not going to read this … so no problem.

So here’s the little review of that article. It said –

During a really, really passionate kiss, you might burn three calories a minute. (This compares to 11.2 calories per minute you burn jogging on a treadmill.)

So I guess the author wanted to say the longer the kiss…the better the exercise!

But if your motivation for kissing is to burn calories, you’re in trouble, real bad trouble. Because the real feminists say that women can tell if a relationship is going to work after the first kiss. (If it’s after the lusciousness of first kiss then maybe it’s ok)

In western countries every time you talk about love the conversation moves towards the bedroom. Funny thing is that one third of American-made movies have been westerns. The first western movie was titled, “The Kiss.” The German language contains 30 words that refer to the act of kissing.

There is even a word, Nachkuss, for all the kisses that haven’t yet been named.

But in India (Bollywood and to some extent real lives) it revolveno-kissing-in-india21s around trees and lovely scenarios from western country.

So to pull us out of the mundane and the ordinary and take us into moments of the extraordinary every Indian should read this and at least know about the HEALTHY side of kissing.

So the article said –

During a kiss people exchange about 278 of different bacteria, 95% from which are non-dangerous. Couples transfer an average of 9 milligrams of water, 0.7 milligrams of protein, 0.18 milligrams of organic matter, 0.71 milligrams of fat and 0.45 milligrams of salt to each other with each open-mouthed kiss. (I wonder how they got these readings.)

Your lips are 100 times more sensible than the tips of your fingers. A real kiss quickens your pulse to 100 beats in a minute.

Men who kiss their wives every morning before going to work live 5 years longer than all others.

Snogging helps reduce tooth decay because the extra saliva it creates helps clean out your mouth. (Gross!!!!)

I didn’t know Kissing is an investigatory process.

Now some world records regarding the act of kissing.

The world kissing record has been won in Mexico City when 39,897 people in the Zocalo [Main Square] locked lips for ten seconds on 14th February 2009. The world’s longest kiss took place in New York City, lasting 30 hours, 59 minutes, and 27 seconds. (Why couldn’t this couple hang on for another 33 seconds to complete the 31st hour? Huh!) A passionate kiss uses 29 facial muscles. (You know you can use all if you want, no rather if you can. ha-ha)

Up till this I thought the article is real investigatory but I didn’t know these survey guys are so desperate and dim-witted to get all the information about Kissing that they even tested the animals. In animal world a kiss of a chimpanzee resembles human kiss very much. Other animals (horses, dogs) also kiss, but in a different way.

When chimpanzees kiss, “it’s with a deep French kiss,They do it for all kinds of reasons — there’s social kissing, kissing to relieve tension, to express friendship, to make up after an argument. (The article said)

kiss

It even has a bad news for serial Kissers

The average woman uses up approximately her height in lipstick every five years and “eats up” about 2.5 lipstick pieces per year. Her sexual partner also “suffers” from a certain dose of chemicals, which makes about 0.7 lipstick pieces per year.

Herpes is called a “kissing disease”, because it’s communicated with kissing. (yakkk!!!)

And a real bad news is that a long-lasting kiss quickens the pulse and heightens level of hormones in human’s blood so much that it shortens the life almost for 1 minute.

In Naples, Italy, in the 16th century, bussing was an offence that carried the death penalty. (Ouch)

An average woman kisses about 79 men before getting married. (Obviously not in India, I guess, Huh!)

An average person spends two weeks of his or her life kissing. (Just two weeks, Oh!)

And to summarize whole article conclusion is that don’t confuse great sex with a cardiovascular workout.

“Kissing is passion and romance and what keeps people together,” says William Michael Cane, author of The Art of Kissing. (Funny thing about Cane is that he visits colleges to lecture on Kissing, now that’s something.)

Its Prelude because I’m single yet.

Why is there no Nobel Prize in Mathematics?

April 14, 2009

Six Nobel Prizes are awarded each year in literature, physics, chemistry, peace, economics, and physiology & medicine. If you’ve noticed award in Mathematics is absent from this list. This even I came to know recently and wanted to know why Maths is not included, so after searching I got this result, and the result is so funny (?)

Nobel prizes were created by the will of Alfred Nobel, a Swedish chemist.

One of the most unfounded reasons as to why Nobel decided against a Nobel Prize in math is that a woman he loved rejected him because of (or cheated him with) a famous mathematician.

Gosta Mittag-Leffler is often claimed to be the guilty party.

There is no historical evidence to support the story.

nobelprize

But one thing is all known that Mr. Nobel was never married.

One more thing a chief purpose for creating the Nobel Foundation was to honor people who do something practical to help humanity.

And Mathematics was not considered a practical science from which humanity could benefit.

Further, at the time there existed already a well known Scandinavian prize for mathematicians. If Nobel knew about this prize he may have felt less compelled to add a competing prize for mathematicians in his will.

I guess you didn’t know this………………..
