Of Diwali, Ram and doubts

I am sure you folks had a fantastic Diwali ๐Ÿ™‚

Vasan wrote a nice post here.Read it ๐Ÿ™‚

Now that the niceties are done lets get down to some probably sacrilegious devil’s advocacy !

The 2 major stories of Diwali are Lord Ram returning to Ayodhya and Narakasura getting his a** kicked

Think of this!

Women Empowerment: Narakasura the demon is finally killed by Satyabhama the queen of Lord Krishna (an incarnation of GOD)

Women Degradation: Also, Lord Ram (again an incarnation of GOD )kicks his pregnant wife out just because some random toilet-cleaner said something about her character.
That leads me to ask the question !! Is God A hypocrite ? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

ps: Blasphemy! Blasphemy !

ps1: Not really a Diwali post …more like looking at the moral contradictions in HIndu paganism

ps2: My third consecutive year of not bursting crackers.

ps3: IIMC has a diwali function this weekend (postponed from the DIwali day due to mid terms for first-years) Will wear traditional gult dress ๐Ÿ™‚

BAMAKA: When I play druid

BAMAKA ( abbr. Bad A** Mad A** kick A** ) Defined as a health drink invented by the Ghost Runner, the dreamy chap who thought he could brew a magic potion (like Getafix of the Asterix comics fame) that could give a person super human strength

So the following ingredients were mixed:

1) soda +salt + something else (speculated to be aspirin soaked in coke ! Or was it whisky …well! I dont remember!! ๐Ÿ˜ )

2) banana shake

3) the mixture

And so we have BAMAKA !!

Recommendation

I don’t guarantee that it will make you healthier though that was the initial purpose

However, If you want to lose weight in a painless,effortless and irrational way, please have a cup of BAMAKA every alternate day Also be prepared to skip classes because you will be in the rest room for the whole day. But at the end of one month, your body shape will change for sure ๐Ÿ˜€

-* Rest In Peace ๐Ÿ˜‰ *-

Dark Knight meets Barney

“You either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain”

Sounds familiar ? Then how about this! Suppose the character Barney from the sitcom, How I met your mother says something similar about the so-called open minded modern girls ….

“You either die (marry) as a sensible person or are single long enough to become a bimbo”

๐Ÿ™‚

ps: Lightheartedly, inoffensively dedicated to this lovely and wonderful piece of blog

And they say ‘No nude beaches in India!’ :P

Some STEP students (foreign exchange students) said … Baba ! Are there no nude beaches here ?
I couldn’t give them the Indo-cultural or pro-Sushma Swaraj or pro-ShivSena argument ! They being Europeans wouldn’t understand.So I hit upon an idea.ย  I take them to the nearest desi gaon and show them this …
Need I say anything else ? ;)

Underrated excellence

Sometimes you download a movie wondering why in the name of the rodent’s a** are you downloading it ?

It was a flop.An utter disaster.Known to be a disaster, a pathetic promotion. One such movie was Equilibrium starring Christian Bale, released in 2002.

Then I watch it and I am dumbstruck at its brilliance, at the dark sided similarity to Bale’s more popular dark knight franchise. IMDB now rates it a decent 7.8/10 .Anyway in the end, I realize that bad campaigning can ruin a good film’s box office performance ๐Ÿ˜

Equilibrium

Equilibrium

The Overview:

In post World War III Earth the citizens of Libria, the last civilized stronghold left, are kept sedated by injections of Prozium, a drug that all citizens take at various times during their day. Books, music, art…anything that causes an reaction is deemed to be forbidden material.

So ,the story is about a Fascist future where all forms of feeling are illegal. Then a man in charge of enforcing the law rises to overthrow the system.

The ultimate innovations:

If you are looking for some brain crunching or sci-fi ingenuity, the concepts of ‘Grammaton cleric’,’Gun kata’,etc., are perfect to make you ponder in wonder ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ghost Runner’s take

Lets say you like science fiction and/or like action-films coupled with intellectual logic .And yet didn’t watch this one, go kill yourself.Or as a ‘Grammaton cleric’ would say, incarcerate yourself!!

And yeah! This one would definitely have been a block buster had it been released after Bale became a popular actor. (post Batman Begins and Dark knight of course)

The Most brilliantly timed scene in the movie (you have to see this scene to appreciate its excellence)

DuPont: And you, Preston, the supposed savior of the resistance, are now its destroyer, and, along with them, you’ve given me yourself… calmly… coolly… entirely without incident.
John Preston: [Polygraph machine scribbling rapidly] No.
[Polygraph suddenly registers Preston completely in control]
Polygraph Technician: Oh… Shit.
John Preston: Not without incident.

(and then follows the climax’s action sequence.Simply put, one of the most brilliantly shot action sequences ever)

Lord of the ‘lungi’s

lungi or lunยทgyi [n., pl. -gis or -gyis also -gyis]. A cloth, often of brightly colored silk or cotton, that is used as a piece of clothing, especially the traditional skirtlike garment of India, Pakistan, and Myanmar (Burma).

In the recent quad party at Joka,

Abruptly like a deja vu’ sent by the Gods themselves, he remembered the great ”mass’ ones of IIITian ug2k3 …t3,raja,yaar, etc.,

He decided to get the ‘mass’ touch (the country touch) back in a softening crowd. Becoming victims to the ‘posh’ metropolitnism of downloading stuff,eating room-delivered food and yeah! becoming like jabba

He wore a bandana to make the look more groovy ….

He had a few shots of vodka to make sure the groove lasts …

He wore a belt to make sure it doesn’t come off

He wore a 3-fourth inside to make sure his honour is saved in case it comes off

and then he was set …. to be unleashed … to restore the one true indian partying style …. mass ification

and thus The lord of the ‘lungi’ s was born ….. they loved him !! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

lord of the lungis

lord of the lungis

The next Joka quad party theme: obviously … lungi ๐Ÿ˜‰
