Auditions Of Dus Ka Dum

Salman Khan’s Dus Ka Dum Auditions- Ab India sochega percent mein!
I was around 20% too late from the scheduled time to reach at Dus Ka Dum auditions. I was 80-90% nervous, 100% excited, and 60-70% fearful. But needless to say, I was enjoying 100%! I walked in panache, heartily smiling all the way, as if a Princess has landed on earth, with a veil of happiness, robe of joy, and a magic stick that would do things right.
In the long queue, I developed friendship with Gauri, a sweet talkative girl from Ghaziabad. We had an elaborated chat about Salman Khan. After a little chaos outside, we managed to go in. The management was too good to be told in percent. All the participants were given special VIP treatment. We were provided sumptuous meals, and people were all praise for Salman Khan.
Oops! I forgot to carry my snap! But thanks to Sony- they had arranged for the Photostat, and a Photographer for people like me. I posed in the most fashionable style when the photographer told me, “A normal pose would do ma’am.” Eh, there I realized I have to control the adrenaline rush a little.

Gauri and me became so nice a friend to each other that our talks became more candid. She started sharing some embarrassing moments of some audition she gave lately. I also opened up some of my silly moments to her. Wink wink! :) We entered he hall, ate 2 samosas each, sipped elaichi tea, and were ready with our documents and I-cards. Then there were guyz from Synergy Adlabs, who escorted us to our respective halls. Luckily, me and Gauri shared the same hall. We filled our book like forms, with little assistance from the modestly helping guys. Then came Siddharth, and gave tips for auditions. I blushed every time he mentioned Salman Khan. My eyes blinked, and heart did pit-a-pat, on the thought of meeting him. While others were preparing a rocking introduction of themselves, I was dreaming of Dus Ka Dum sets- how I would react on meeting Salman, what would I say, will my voice choke or would I scream loudly?! Should I carry something as a token of my respect for him? Or no gift can express my feelings? What would I wear that day? First I decided of wearing Jeans and T. But then I zeroed in on Salwar Kameez. I would epitomize Indian beauty! Then I saw my not-so-beautiful face in the mirror, and thought, I must buy a lovely dress to compensate my looks. When Gauri sreamed “Good luck Vibha” from the other end, I came back to senses. Once again I was in an air conditioned hall, at The Russian Cultural Center, Feroz Shah Road.

We were then sent inside the respective chambers, and were asked to wait. I was all ears to the types of questions been asked. When the manager announced my name, I smiled so large, that my lips went to my ears. My heart in my throat, I went in. I waved a hello to people sitting there. I was asked to introduce myself, and something from inside me said, ”Hi, I’m Salman Khan's fan.” Gosh! Now that was pretty obvious friends. That is why I was there! I realized I had messed up, and to cover it up, I took help from Salman’s photograph that I took with me. I showed it on the camera, and narrated the whole story of how I got it- my precious little gift. They asked me, “How many Indian females would like to be born as a male in their next birth?” Now that didn’t come to me as a shocker. I said plainly, “The number can’t be much. There may be some crazy who would wish that. It may be around 10-20%.” The two judges smiled at my transparency. Then came the bouncer, ”How many men would like to marry a girl who knows cooking?” “Umm..”I said, “70-80%” without much speculation. When this was not enough, they told me to sing a song…Song people!! Me, song?? Yes, why not? Anything for Salman Khan!! I sang, “mere rang mein rangne wali”, in my ever so pathetic voice, and came out smiling. They were happy with my, eh, performance. The girl who was busy writing the marks on paper assured me of getting a call soon. I was on cloud nine… :) And I still am! So what if I’m not selected. Perhaps someone else needed money, and God gave him the chance instead! The best way to stay happy: “If you have cried today, always think that the smile you deserved has been given by God to someone else who really needed it.” Sometimes its excellent to assume things. Three cheers to Salman Khan! :)

When She Danced to the Raaga

She stood stiff, with her neck buried into her piano, just the way a cow grazes the grass. She believed this way, she can bring her mind closer to the task and concentrate fully. Her fingers moved like undersized waves that ebb and flow recklessly into a sea. The black and white keys, the notes and half-notes blow some syncopated music that she could dance to. She so wanted to! But she concentrated to get the Malkaush Raag right.

Some music begins to flow into the room like maple leaves fall in Ontario- soft, and bronze red.

“Guru ji says this music releases some sort of nourishing energy”- she chuckled without looking up at him.

“Nourishing energy? Umm… like some soul stirring?”- he enquired.

“Soul-stirring. Yes. This raag is believed to have been created by Goddess Parvati to sooth Shiva when He was outraged and would not calm down...after Tandav...and…”

She resumed her attention on the Arohana notes. She just slipped her hand from Komal Ga to Shuddh Pa. "Pa is completely omit…

You won’t believe Who Would be Watching ‘Bahubali-2’ Even Before its Worldwide Release!

Movie buffs in India are eagerly waiting for the release of ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ but guess it’s the Queen Elizabeth II of UK who would watch it first. Reports have it that Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali – The Conclusion’ will be screened in UK a day prior to its worldwide release. 
The British Film Institute will showcase Indian films as a part of Indian Film program from April till December and Baahubali has made the cut to be screened to mark 70 years of India’s independence. If sources are to be believed, not just Queen Elizabeth II but PM Modi would also be among the first ones to know “Katappa ne Bahubali ko kyu maara”. He is likely to attend the screening on 27th April, i.e., one day before its worldwide release – but no official statement has been declared.
With a budget of Rs. 150 crores, Baahubali is the most expensive movie in the history of Indian cinema.  It is a sweeping epic that glues the audience for straight 2 hours and 40 minutes, with our mouths wide open to the gr…

3 Reasons Why Not Wearing a Bra is sometimes the BEST Feeling in the World

As insane as it may sound, but women are ALWAYS in a love-hate relationship with their bras. They would be very choosy about the size, make and color. Every morning, they would meticulously choose which one to wear that complements their dress; but this dear feeling would soon vanish as the day advances. Through this post, I’m trying to list down the reasons why women love to hate their bras that they happily cling on to on a daily basis.

   .Just Letting Them Breathe For it is the basic and fundamental right of any being. Yes, boobs are beings and women feel the urge to unwind and let them breathe, for breathe they must. So when the days are heavy and you can’t take the cruelties of the world anymore, remember to unhook

  2.   To Avoid that Stabbing Feeling

Men would never understand the feeling of something constantly stabbing their chest and shoulders. Women would agree that however comfortable bra they wear, it can sometimes sting the body (padded and wired ones specially are kille…
