2. Petrol prices will never come down in relation to the global crude oil prices atleast in India

3. Pakistan will still dodge India on Dawood Ibrahim and Masood Azhar (Dont know when the dogs will be traced)

War against Terrorism or Goverment Sponsored Terrorism?

The last few days of raids on gaza by the FAMOUS State of Israel brings us back to the state of art thinking... Is this really a war against terrorism or a war against civilians... The last I heard was the Gaza attacks from Israel has already caused 375 dead and more than a 1000 injured... what a shame, many of them are just innocent people, kids and females who have NO whatsoever connection to the terror world...

Well anyways under the name of War against terrorism goverments have started to sponsor terrorism on their own... so now you dont need al-qaida's and Laskar-e-taiba's to destroy you... you are a phone call away .... Call

ISRAEL - AND YOU WILL HAVE ENOUGH OF TERRORISM

SAREGAMAPA Challenge 2009

It Kicked of in Style.
1. Contenstants from all over the globe.
2. Real Singing talent.
3. Expectations of hunting another Aneek Dhar or Raja Hasan
4. Glamour
5. Participation from Mid east and non hindi contestants
6. Fantabolous judges

Wow.... it sounds all good at the saregamapa challenge 2009 when it came to the kickoff.... however one thing that did not go hidden was the WAR of EGO and PUBLICITY STUNTS.... and who else can you guess again? Yes Himesh led the way.

The show kicked off with the usual 4 Gharana style on saregamapa with the hunted down contestants to each gharana... currently 4 each in every gharana.
Rock it Gharana - Himesh Reshammiya
Dhoom Gharana - Pritam
Lakshya Gharana - Shankar
jai Ho Gharana - Aadesh Srivastava

8 contestants from the globe (A lot of Pakistani's again) will go each in the gharana as foreign contestants and a few would be sent to Eklavya to be chosen later.... Now all of this sounds very promising... unfortunately the TV producers could not stop Himesh Reshammiya's attitude on the show... he has kicked of the trouble right in the begining by putting hard statements on other shows (Indian Idol that has not started yet and Voice of India which is due to start soon).

While Saregamapa challenge 2009 seems to be good with the contestants, I see the same old story to be repeated in the end.... Are we ready to pay the price to get a winner which the judges would claim was fixed in the end?

Salman Khan needs to involve participants more in 10 ka dum

The first show of dus ka dum was attractive and impressing at the same time the second in the show displays some limitations and in-experience from Salman... well this is not critics for the sake of it... but eventually the second in a row started with Nandini and the other lad who competed for the break of war to get the place to fight the questions from Salman.... eventually I felt that Salman was rushing through the questions in a later stage just to catch up with the time.... I am with him as we can fairly understand that their are limitations to the times.... however it is important that the questions and competition lets the host evolve and involve the participants much more than just running through the questions....

Salman was better and good playing Nandini but the later participant sounded more dominating in the show than Salman to the misery Salman was also rushing through the questions.... lets hope Sidd gets him back on track with some more astonishing jokes... and in any case Salman khan needs some more script writing for better control....

|Anyways a part of appreciation... Salman gesture of sharing the painting he did in the Jodhpur jail was really touching...

Salman Khan is a bride on the marriage stage

Yes... While I read his blog on my mobile... I see Salman khan very very nervous on the launch of the show tonight at 9 PM on SOny Television... As a bride on the marriage stage Salman talks about how he is feeling about the show launch... though I am very confident that the maiden TV show Salman is hosting will be a super duper hit no matter what is the format of the show... his smile and the dare devil style makes it more attracting to everyone...

Salman in his previous blog entries also mentioned that Arbaaz, Arpita, Alvira , David and all in his close circles will be joining him for the show... do I see Siddharth Basu trying to bring in celebs to keep the momentum of the show even before it starts?

While I am waiting eagerly for the ( PM kickoff I am really keen in uploading the videos as streams on internet as soon as I can... if you are looking for some clips and videos of Dus Ka Dum do not hesitate to drop me an email...

SarkaRRaj review doesnt sound very interesting

While I just read the first review from bigadda... read here I find the review itself to turnout to be much boring .... I am not sure and would not want to make any statement before I really watch the movie tomorrow.. I am surprised the first hand review sounds much more complex than it should be....

When I read the first review of Sarkar it was promising .. not because of the story but becuase of the way the stroy and characters were potrayed... here I see a jungle of characters been potrayed with a sheer objective of some gangster masala? Anyways I plan to go for a preview show tomorrow and hope that the movie is not as bad as Ramu can do with a AAG...

Laughter Challenge fears Dus ka Dum

The first laughter challenge was really a cool customer to the channel TRP's the second one was OK and the third one did not really move everyone on the feet... with the 4th in a row planned to be kicked off on 6th of June along with the primiere of my favourite Dus ka dum... I already see Shatrughan Sinha and Navjyot Sidhu lacking the hit to make a killer show...

Salmans popularity,Shahrukh Khans failure on Paanchvi pass, Comedy circus getting some good talent and Shekhar Suman and finally a new co-judge on Laughter 4 is making the deal go costly for Star One...The show been hosted on Friday and Saturday... also collides with Dus ka dum on Friday and Comedy Circus on saturday... leave apart the TRP crash the IPL made for everyone....

My 2 cents get the shows distributed or have repeast telecasts the same day late night and next day (weekend) noon to get back your crowds....

Salman Khan's 12 days of Dus ka Dum are creepy?

The so called blog of Salman Khan seems to be giving some news that is al away available on internet however it talks about some things that my guess would be that it comes from close circles... though I appreciate the blog and if the blog is really run by Salman my request would be to give some inno info.. for instance the Taj lands party launch is not mentioned in the blog? Anyways.. the show with less than a day left is already triggering some high TRP's estimates ... Recently on one of the blogs I read that Salman would really be wanting to promote the show on other reality shows and also has asked Sajeed Wajeed to come up with some new techniques and songs.... not to my surprise it also is in the news that the writer of the movies Maine Pyaar kyun kiya and partner was asked to create some punchline for Salman and also do some write ups to make his show successfull...

By the way I forgot to mention that the attitude that Salman Khan is carrying in the show is praiseworthy... it just makes you like the show... however I am not sure on how much fun the questions would generate as a lot of them are going to be in lines of adultery jokes or crucnhy questions I am unsure on how the director will manage to create some more fertility in the show...

Dus Ka Dum will bring some TRP's

Yes.. the show is very popular even before it has kicked off... with 4 days more to go and Salman Khan seen everywhere it seems to be that the show will trigger as hard as the celebrity world was when Salman announced him playing a host on a reality show...

While I am keeping an aye on the ads that are promoting Salman Khans show, I see a lot of activity on the internet already... There is also a blog for Dus Ka Dum though I dont understant why Salman Khan would choose blogger for this while his very own web site can trigger better ways of commenting and linking mechanism... the other thing that worries me is nothing that is not present on the news and gossip world is written on this blog.. so I am not very sure of this been Sony's official blog for Dus ka Dum and Salman Khan....The other surprising item of this blog is the link from BlogCatalog that show cases some nude blogs is also a point of concern...

Anyways keeping my friend Salman Khans reputation at stake I would request him and SOny to soon announce the official blog for 10 ka Dum... It also looks like the promos for 10 ka dum are taken very seriously by crowd and my 5 yr old son is already very impressed by Salman or Lucky as he calls him (It was during the hosted show of Lucky that we luckily got chance to meet him)... I also found him humming the dus ka dum song and that to my surprise is over his choice of SRK's show Panchvi...

Salman Khan performs Dus ka Dum on IPL T20 finals

Salman begins in style on T20 closing ceremony... yet to arrive on the stage he has already rocked the scenes.... Salaame-Isq and Partner songs are just been played and co-dancers are trying to make him over..... but where is the star?

While the songs are playing I am getting a call from a friend who is now on the stadium saying that he is already seeing Salman preparing down the lane....

OK enough of wait there he goes... in a black suit... Salman styles in the dhakka maar style.....Dus ka dum promotion ;) well I can say this guy really has style... the crowd on its feet and the star looking chilly spicy ;)

I wish my mobile had better video streaming....

Well the stadium is off the lights and now the game is going to kick off with 2 more performances it seems.... My bet on today is Rajasthan Royals choose to field...

IPL T20 closing ceremony begins in style

Just 30 mins left to the finals to kick off and in presence of the who's who of India the closing ceremony of the DLF T20 IPL has started .... some performances from the bollywood stars and now the circus group performing the act.... I am sure in some time Salman khans presence would be spectacular.... I wish I had a wish to watch the finals...in fact I just attempted to check the friends for the passes so that I can watch the finals... but it is too much of travel and not sure if I am a supporter of any of the teams but cricket....

Toshi and Prajakta Shukre in Champions of Jo Jeeta wohi superstar

Finally the challengers got a hault when the last promotion round took place... The last finale saw.. Ameya Daate, Rex D'souza, Amit Sanaa , Priyani Wani, Rooprekha banerjee, Toshi, Prajakta and others to give a head to head war for the final time to compete for the place in the champions before the gala rounds turn into the finale rounds...

Toshi was lucky to get selected as a champion by the existing champion brands of Rahul,Abhijeet, Debojeet, Vineet, Ishmeet, Harsheet if you havent noticed see the eet effect in the names.... Eventually it is said that Toshi is only here becuase they had no choice then getting him in the competition as against the new ameya and rex... on the other hand Rahul's hand in Prajakta's win can be seen clearly..... Rahul Vaidya and Prajakta who are very very wink good friends also make it clear that Rahul got some weight to get her as a champion...

Last weeks champion Himani who was voted out today due to the last weeks drama... is also giving significant effect to the ever happening drama on these shows... I am waiting to see Prajakta and Toshi getting voted out from the show as soon as possible while Abhijeet is the hot favourite to be the winner.... I still dont see Ishmeet and Harsheet of the same capabilities... and Vineet and Rahul are only dramebaaz... on the other hand debojeet is only going to be the competition to Abhijeet.....

Jo Jeeta wohi Superstar

While other reality shows just coming to an end and the Indian Idol and Saregamapa challenge yet to kick off the auditions cmpletions it looks like that the next few months are going to be a better time for Star Plus Series n reality .. Jo Jeeta wohi Superstar...this also comes inline to the fact that the IPLT20 is about to finish and Salman Khan starring Dus ka Dum is a different concept... Shahrukh Khans Panchvi pass is no more in race as many have already agreed it to be flopped...

I am keeping an eye on the TRP's for Comedy Circus, Krazy Kiya re and the Dhum dhadaka, while we are all wating for comparing the Dus ka Dum, Laughter challenge and other singing and dancing shows coming up sn.

The Get Together!!!

Yesterday a Get together for the members of my residence society was planned... think it came in becuase several of the resident members did not know each other very well and it was important to co-ordinate amongst so that we share smiles at least as neighbours...

Eventually i decided to move out of this meeting specially due to a fact that I had to be on call. This is the second time I made myself busy while a social get together was arranged in our neighbourhood. Though I sent my apologies for not being present on the scene I have made up my mind to call in for a party for the residents sometime next month, or at least I will plan for one...

A Trip to Kashid!!!

I finally took a day off to really get myself refreshed from a very troublesome and hectic schedule. It took almost 1 and a half years for me to take a break of my routines where no work was involved. Yes the last leave I took was in December 2006 thereafter I was only off for a couple of sick leaves.... anyways the trip to Kashid (34 KMs from Alibag on the west coast of the country in Maharashtra) was good and refreshing... I took the jerry bag off to make sure that the next few weeks that are going to be lot more hectic for me are neautralised.

We started off late on friday from Pune to travel the 100 kms route with wife and kids... the plan was to hit ALibag and stay there at a resort for a night before we hit the waves of the kashid beach on Saturday..... as expected and opposite to the plan we reached there a bit late .... thanks to overwhelming response we got from the traffic on the north bypass traffic near Khopoli. Reaching Alibag and searching for a better resort this time was another adventure...(Yes I am an unplanned traveller) I read this at Travel and Living web site the quote was : The Best traveller is the one who travels unplanned...

We reached the Radisson Park resorts just out of Alibag city, the new resort that was just inaugarated 4 days ago... what a nice place... Ambience, cool villa's .... perfect reception... however we were unlucky to put up our stay there for long ... due to time constraints....

Kashid is my regular... someohow I hit the beach whenever I can... a place with very few tourists, good clean beach, some good shacks around and best peace of nature.....

I wish to write more... but just waiting to see how the pics come up... for your informatin we still use our non digital old styled camera which generates only hard copies.

Jo Jeeta wohi Superstar

The show hosted by Mandira Bedi with Vishal - Shekhar of the Darde-Disco and Farah khan the director of Om Shanti Om on the judges panel seems to show some fun and glamour... With 6 show winners from Sa re ga ma pa and Voice of India competing against the challengers from the same show who could not win the title ... is appearing to be a unique concept and now its a reality over reality show...

Abhijit Sawant, Rooprekha, Aishwarya , Ishmeet Singh, Toshi , Sumitra , Ravi , Amit Sana, Amit Tandon and all others make it a complete challenger show...

I am going to write about this some days now...

Shakeel and Urvashi win the Ustaado ke Ustaad finale?

Well it was expected.... After Saroj Khan and Jaaved Akhtar acted complete insane and really put down every single performance done by Kapil Sharma and other Ustaad's from laughter challenge.... Urvashi and Shakeel were finally declared as winners... for some reason I feel this is a Sony gist.... Urvashi and Shakkeel who have always played Husband wife acts really get boring sometimes with no new flavours...

The fact that they have won now is going to put Ustaado ke ustaad on the back seat atleast for the comedy section as people see complete Bias here...

Andesha and Aishwarya fight the War today in Chote Ustaad!!!

I can finally wirte today about the show Thanks to some back bitting and trust breaking I got opportunity to watch TV.....

The Chote Ustaad which prolonged long and was actually scheduled to run its final amidst new year kick off has finally come to an end.... The finale is expected today in presence of Big B aka Amitabh Bachan who seems to be equally excited to watch the chote singers to become the ustaad tonight. The Finale begins at 8 PM and is expected to be a grand one as compared to the SA RE GA MA PA challenge specially due to a fact that the voting counts have incresed over the last few days and the 2 contestants running for the show are both females...

I expect a wonderful Final while I waste my time watching some silly migration over in the office or at home...
