Self Destruct?

Why do some people?

Shahrukh Khan in KBC

Just watched a couple of minutes of the latest version of KBC hosted by Shahrukh Khan. Is it only me who feels that he tries just too hard to emulate and outright copy Amitabh Bachhan. While I am not a fan of KBC I do think that Amitabh changed the landscape of television show hosting with his brilliant and touching hosting of the show!

Now Shahrukh wants to emulate that popularity and in that trial, is literally imitating Amitabh’s style but quite ineffectively

Main public se nahi darta, Main khud public hoon

Watch Guru. It’s brilliant. Period!
Might review but I doubt I can do it justice.

Ps. The title means: “I don’t fear the Public, I am the Public”

School Meetup

Yesterday about 7 class-mates from my high school decided to meetup. I was the one who called in all the people and got them to come. Thankfully so many showed up (more than I had expected to turn up)
It turned out to be a very good time as we reminisced school times, caught up with each others and generally chatted and joked about how things used to be in school.

Took a couple of pics of everyone there:

Goa trip and photos

So I had a blast on new years.. Allwin, Sujit, my bro Rish and your’s truly had gone to Goa for the new years celebration. Goa, considered to be the best party spot for new years was on the horizon for a trip for me for quite sometime. So this time, I decided to “Just do it” ;)

Pulled in Al and Sujit and my bro of course was always ready. We departed on the 29th evening and arrived in Goa on the 30th. Met up with my brother in law who stays there and then to his home for an early lunch cum breakfast. From there, we headed out to the Baga beach, one of the most popular beaches in Goa. We spent the day there walking along the beach (having decided not to get into the water on that day but the next) and just watching the huge crowd on the beach. Also climbed up a narrow rocky path to a couple of enclosed beaches.

From Baga, we went for dinner after which we walked to another beach which was within the city of Panjim, Miramar. I was quite tired by then and my leg, having been hurt by a sharp rock, was paining quite badly. So I decided to skip the beach and instead sat in a coffee shop.

From Miramar, we went to one of the many casinos in Goa since the others wanted to check out and experience the casino.

The next day, we visited the Church of St. Patrick Xavier and then went to the Fort Aguada beach. It was here that we entered the sea. And what fun it was. So much that we just did not want to come out. Had it not been for the new years party, I’m pretty sure none of us would have come out of the sea.

From the beach, we went to our hotel for a quick shower and change of clothes and then were on our way back to go for the party. We planned to visit “On the Rocks” ;) a new disc in town on the Baga beach. And what a party it was. A whole lot of fun. Music, booze, good food and dancing! Rish managed to get wasted after having a little too much to drink :D
We finally returned from the party at 4 am in the morning (or atleast I think it was around then)

On our final day in Goa(1st), Rish and me stayed at my bro in laws house since Rish was still suffering from the effect of the previous night’s partying.. Al and Sujit decided to roam around and explore Goa.

We met back in the evening for our return journey to Bangalore..
