Do it yourself kit - Make A Movie

"Inspired" by

Doctor Dialogues
Inhe dava ki nahi, dua ki zaroorat hai
Humne puri koshish ki hai, baaki sub uparwale ke haath mein hai.
Mujhe afsos hai ke hum (aapki biwi/maa/baap/bahen/…) ko bacha nahi paaye
Mubark ho aap ma/baap/dada/dadi banane wali/wale ho!”.

Police Trademark dialogues:
Police ne tumhe chaaron taraf se gher liye hain. Bhagne ki koshish mat karo. Apne aap ko kanoon ke hawale kar do.
Kanoon ke haath bade lambe hote hain.

Court dialogues
Apko jo bhi kehna hain katgire main aake kahiye
Yeh aadalat ki touheen hain
Main is Geeta per haath rakhkar kasam khata/khaati hoon ki jo bhi kahoonga/kahoongi sach kahoonga/kahoongi, aur sach ke alaava kuch nahin kahoonga/kahoongi.
Gawahon key bayanat aur saboton ko madde nazar rakhtey hue, yeh adalat is natije par pahuchi hain ki ....

Lovers/couples dialogue.
Main tumhare bina zinda nahi reh sakti
Hindustani patni apne pati ka naam apne mooh se nahi leti
Maine tumhaare bacche ki maa banne wali hoon
Aaya nahi, aanewala hain

The mother:
maine tujhe nau mahine apne kok me pala hai.
Maine tere liye Gajar ka halwa banayi hai.
Beta, Tum sharaab pe ke aaye ho?
Nahi beta, yeh to khushi ki aansoo hai
kaha pe muh kala karke aai hain

Rape Dialogues
Bachao, Bachao. Bhagwaan ke liye mujhe chodd do

Monkey Island

(As stolen from the website)

Lets go to monkey island.

It will make you very happy.

There are no monkey on the island.

However there is plenty of happiness.

Cannot wait for my trip to monkey island tomorrow to find happiness.

Joe's Apartment.

Anyone remember Joe's Apartment? Not the bad movie, the short on MTV. I am strangely being reminded of that.
If this continues, other existential questions ( such as "Who am I?" "Why am I here?" ) will take more of my waking time.
You have to give up. You have to give up.

Barbeque at Hakone

Golden week is a bit odd this year. No straight holidays, so no long vacations. Went out to Hakone with a few friends for a barbeque. Nice food, good onsen, great ramen at shinagawa to end the day.
A cycling to trip planned around odaiba cancelled due to bad weather. Need a big vacation soon.

85 years and a weekend

It's bust. Bear Stearns has folded up. 85 years on wall street. One weekend of absolute mayhem. 170 $ per share last year. 2$ per share this week. It does not get any worse. You can read about it all on the net. For years to come , I guess.

So where does this put me? let's see. Romantic life in the dumps. Professional life in the dumps. Japanese life in the dumps. I don't know where it goes from here. Life has been strange. Just when you think you've seen it all, it has a way of tying your balls up and hanging you upside down to ask " Well, what do you think?"

Wait and Watch. More to follow.

Happy Chinese New Year

That's what it comes down to. A year late on the new year wishes. This blog is inspired by watching The Departed again on cable and four shots of Jack daniels and the new dell laptop. The love for movies is universal. Lot's of events. No time for updates. The lamest excuse ever. No time.
Dance Dance has been appreciated across continents. Love to know Mithun da rocks. New Years in India was great. Tokyo still rocks. Lots of decisions to be made. Never easy.
Moved from shimbashi to higashi ginza. Nice neighbourhood, lots of shops for strictly window shopping.
travel tip - goa sucks on new years. Never again. But, never say never.
Mumbai is great. Nothing's changed. Dunno if that's good or bad. The traffic sucks, the bars close early and no more drunk driving. The last one's definitely great. Friends still rock, they are the best on the planet.
Gotta go now, time for some pink floyd on saturday night.
