P.S. Spoilers ahead …. 😀

This is a story of a impoverished Indian boy  who started his life in the slum of Mumbai and somehow landed up in a show “Who wants to be a millionaire” ….. More than the show , the story is about the incidents that young Jamal Malik go through ….. The director Danny Boyle has more than succeeded in drawing the real life portrait of a poor boy (referred to as slumdog by many) , his life and Indian society …..

So , the boy Jamal makes it to the show “Who wants to be a millionaire ?  ” somehow, not for any desire of money but for his love to see him …… and he  happens to hit the jackpot …. he is able to win 10 million rupees…… but the host Anil Kapoor could not digest the fact and gets the boy  arrested for fraud …..

The cop Irfan Khan interrogates him for the clue and in Jamal’s words “If You would  ask me the question …. I will give you the answer” …… he explains how an uneducated boy like him  happens to know all the answers to the question …. how he happened to know whose picture is portrayed on a 100 $ bill , but didn’t knew whose face it is on a 1000 Rs. note …… how he happened to know who invented revolver …. how he knew where was the Cambridge Circus …… how he knew the answers to all the seemingly impossible tricky questions ….. how he recalled the incidents of his life to tell the answers to the questions ……

Everyone is convinced and the boy is realeased …. He makes it back to the show for the final question ….. the final question for 20 million Rs…..whole nation glued to the TV set ….. Here comes the final question …… can he answer this question ???? ….. Can a slumdog be a millionaire ???? ….. find it out yourself !!! ….

This movie is nominated for 4 golden globes and has already won many awards ….I will give it a 4 out of 5 …..

If I were the PM of India

Standard

Until my mind took a turn and I decided to opt engineering as my career , the aim of my life was to become the Prime Minister of India … 😉 …. To become the senior most minister ….. with all the administrative powers …… the power to bring forth any reform I would like …… seriously , here is a list of what I would have done if they make me PM of this country ……

Make me the PM of India and the first clause that you will find amended will be the clause on ragging ….. it would read something like this ,

”Ragging is a wonderful act and any student found involved in this activity shall be rewarded ……. Any student found trying to escape from this activity will be expelled from the institute and can also be imprisoned for few days …….. strict action will be taken by the authorities against the freshers who oppose this peaceful act of the seniors” ……. 😛

All the movies that make their way to the theatre will be made total free of cost for the students …… 😉 …… No no no …. Don’t think what an irresponsible and a waste of PM I am ……. I will make sure our economy don’t go the gutter …… the people without the student ID will be liable to pay thrice the normal price of the ticket …… and so will be the dudes with their girlfriends …. 😛 …… Mr. PM only serves the needy …. Not the greedy …. 😉 …….

 

We all are equal ….. that would be the message I will put forward ……. No reservations for anyone ….. admissions will be based only on merit …… I won’t have any guy named Arjun Singh in my cabinet ……. And I won’t have any quotas to favour the reserved ones and to snatch the seats from the deserving ones …… Hip hip hurray …… 😀 …… P.S. no reservations even for girls .…. 😡 ….. I don’t mind a ratio of 10:1 in any branch ……

 

Any institute found holding an extra class on a declared holiday will be severely punished …… even a complaint launched against the institute ….. and Mr. Principal …. Pack your bags for a trip ….. a trip to the jail for a day or two …… so that you could also experience same sufferings which you made the students to go through …… 😡 …….

 

A lot and lot of plans I hold in my mind ….. 5 long years of my span will be enough to implement these plans …… no student will be held back for short attendance …… assignments will be made compulsory only for the muggers …… exam schedule will be decided by the students through voting …… DC will never interfere in the student’s business …… bunks will be made compulsory…..and the dictatorship of the college management will become a thing of the past …… Any further suggestions are most welcome ……. I won’t hesitate in incorporating them in my list ….. Who knows….. If I really become PM one day…. 😉

 

Hurray !!! its weekend

Standard

Just when you start thinking that this world is upto no good …… you start cursing everything around you ….. your brain is filled with utter despearation crying out loud for some relief …… all the professors and lecturers take an avatar of a demon in front of your eyes ….. and you are just at the melting point when ………… when weekend comes to your rescue ……..

hurray_1

 

Following the similar routine for the whole week ……forced to wake up early in the morning …….attending five classes on the trot …….. devastated by the result of sessionals …… reaching the labs with incomplete files , ready to be at the receiving end of all the scolding …… the weekend comes nothing less than a blessing for me ……..

 

 

As they say : Weekends have very few days

 

But I know how to extract the bright things out of these few days …… First of all , I have to cover up for all the incomplete dreams that the alarm clock has cost me ……. Do you know how it feels like when that stupid beep-beep tone hinders with your sleep ……. 😡 ….. when you feel that how peaceful this world would have been without these filthy alarm clocks …….

 

Friday it is ……a number of movies released ….. one of them will surely be blessed by my worthy presence…….its been almost a week since I last watched a movie (Fashion being the one)……..

 

Looking forward to this weekend …….. Although college management tried to dampen my spirits through their ugly tactics , by arranging for the extra classes ……. But justice prevails and we didn’t hesitate even for a second before deciding to bunk the class 😉 ….. Howzzat Mr. Dean …… no one can mess with my weekend ……..

 

P.S. I hate Mondays …. 😡
