Myth : The movie Aparichit/Anniyan/Aparichitudu is a genuine creative concept.
Truth : Watch the anime, Death Note! The Garuda Puranam is the death note.Only that our Indian audiences being religious folks , would prefer a sacred book rather than one in which the hero gets to write names of those who should go kaput !!
Of course throw in a heroine, some oomph ,some songs and it looks indigeneous!
Myth : chak de is a gooooooooooooooood movie. (quoting most of my pals here at Jokaland)
Truth : Its ok but certainly not gooooooooooood ! As Vasan said ,had you seen movies like Remember the Titans , The Mighty Ducks, among others , you wouldn’t be feeling that elated about chak de being so goooooooood ! Anyway yeah!Its nice tp fare on the occasion of Independence day. 🙂
Myth :IIIT-H’s Jeevan Vidhya Programme is good for your …err …jeevan !!
Truth : JV is not good in IIIT–H .The gentleman who comes to teach JV is good.But basically the purpose of ‘JV in IIIT-H’ is marketing of the IIITian brand , nothing else! Just because the then Prez euphemistically,accidentally made a good comment on JV, it s now one of IIIT’s USPs!?!? **puke!!**
Myth : ITC’s E-Choupal , IIIT-H’s E-Sagu are excellent examples of Social responsibility.They help the farmers.
Truth : Basically they are incredibly, brilliantly contrived marketing ploys.The good will,the reputation that is generated builds the brand values of these firms/institutes.And also ,in IIIT-H’s case,super-loafers like Dr.Pucker (cant write nomenclature directly, can I ? ) bask in the fame and the paisa the govt. shells out.
Myth : Halley’s married to his servant maid 😛
Truth : Its not true.She tied him rakhi and he’s right now contemplating suicide :))
ps : The abbulu-returns-home trip cancelled due to rumours of one more of those quizzes in the coming week 😐
ps1 : Hmm ..right now ,the force I am exerting on earth reduced by 29.4 more Newtons ! Curse the humidity x(
ps2 : Does the Fight Club still exist back there at the Gachibowli Institute of Technology ? 😉
ps3 :I have an old certificate where I actually won an idly-eating competition back in 1995 … LOL !
ps4 : And yeah! Still running … hehe!
