If you are here to find the secret of the FB status updates of your female friends that says “I like it on…” then I’m sorry I can’t let out the secret of my sorority, though I think its a bit stupid and I seriously don’t know how updating the status of your handbag can increase breast cancer awareness… oops! Sorry ladies! On a completely different note and a tad bit late, I want to say that the And then… contest was awesome fun and I thoroughly enjoyed conducting it 😀
What I am going to write about today is KBC (Kaun Banega Crorepati) and Amitabh Bachchan. I have to say the old guy is the God of Indian Film Industry and he knows what he is doing – its an awesome show and though I am an ardent SRK fan I can’t help but admit Big B rocks the show like no one else can. Now maybe its because I’m a huge Bollywood fan but the whole recreation of hit scenes from Big B’s movies – what an idea sirji – nope, no one pays me for this gibberish!
When he did the Agneepath scene I completely forgot that I was sitting in front of my TV in the drawing room in Singapore with one nostril choked and other flowing like a tap – that scene tele-ported me to a cinema hall in India – I tried to whistle and shout to cheer but my sore throat did not support me – Big B! The man can still create magic. I’m not surprised that KBC 4 beats all other reality shows on TV read it here. The show created a huge buzz with teasers ‘koi bhie sawal chhota nahi hota’ and is now delivering up to the noise it created. I specially liked the crispness in this season and the time limit to questions made it super-exciting.
Big B, of-course is like a bottle of wine aging makes it taste better, at 68 is an eye candy. His finesse, language, stature, personality, laughter and sense of humor among other things make him a league above the rest, make him, Him. I say – Deviyon aur sajjano its only a 9 week season and one of those is over so catch it if you can… coz when its about KBC I like it on Amitabh Bachchan – what say you?
The night before the winner is announced is the toughest for all the participants… To cheer you all up I would like to present the trophies and certificate that the winners and participants will take back 😀 😀 I am extremely happy that I conducted this contest which helped me get connected to so many wonderful writers and gave me the opportunity to read some fantastic creations from a simple scene that I started.

Today, as usual I started from office at 11.45 for my 12.00pm gym session, when I reached the changing room I realized I had not brought my lock. I knew Pushy (my instructor) with his watch was watching my way, so I decided I’d change and think simultaneously… I saw a kind looking woman and webbed a plan, I’d keep my stuff inside one of the lockers and pretend to search for something, I’ll look very upset and in hurry, all this hoping she would ask why… then I would rattle how I didn’t have my lock and couldn’t leave my stuff without a lock, she would then offer to give her lock, I could return that at the reception she could collect it later… I am sometimes impressed with my optimism and quick thinking and yes! It worked… I quickly locked the stuff and ran down to reach at 12.02 – 2mins late is almost a routine by now…
In the last 15mins of my 60mins torture, I always jump into planning-mode for next 30mins how I would run to the shower then to juice bar and then for my call/meeting/whatever… at 1.02pm he relieved me, I huffed, puffed and dragged myself towards the changing-room while Pushy chuckled saying “take good rest tomorrow! See you on Saturday” and I mocked (in my mind of-course) “You wish! I’m gonna be unwell on Saturday, hahaha!” once in the changing room I was racing against time to reach the client’s office for a 1.30pm presentation with Fussy (my client) and Snooty (my boss). ‘Its fortunate that Fussy’s office is in the same building as the gym, this would give me a few more minutes…” with this thought trailing, I opened my locker and my worst nightmare came alive – no it wasn’t a gecko, though that would be as bad well in this case, I saw NOTHING… I thought of the towels, clothes, cosmetics – its weird how I thought of the most irrelevant things first – watch, phone, wallet, IC card… Yes! “The Kind Woman” had swept my locker… My heart almost stopped but the clock kept ticking…
With 20mins on hand for the presentation, I was still in my gym clothes stinking and wet with sweat running on my forehead… I ran to the reception and started blabbering about the woman when I realized, in my previous hurried episode, I had forgotten to even ask her name – I know, so rude well she did take some revenge though! Anyway so I described her – Singaporean, dressed in shorts & T-shirt, straight hair, slim – OMG! I thought that’s 99% of Singaporean women! It took me 10mins to explain to the receptionist and at 1.20 we were standing in front of my empty locker… By now most women in the changing area knew something was not right… They glanced at me while I talked with my face slightly redder and voice slightly raised… Then this lady walks in and in all this crisis she wanted to use the locker just beside mine – seriously, I thought, people are so weird, of all the empty lockers this moron wants to use the locker right beside mine! So pissed I was, I said out loud “you won’t find a treasure in there you know!” she replied “this is the one I always use…” It drove me insane it was 1.25 what did I do to deserve this… she suddenly snapped at me “see I did find a treasure here today” It dawned on me then – I had locked an empty locker while all my stuff lay open in the locker beside it…
