Dus Ka Dum Game Show

No More Crorepati or Paanchvi Paas, Dus Ka Dum- Real Show Of The Real Superstar.
Dus Ka Dum isn’t just another game show. It has split the atom- Courtesy: Salman Khan. This man is the pulse of the show, which is apparent by watching every single episode of the show. He has a tremendous fan following, from the shy and meek to candid and extrovert, youngsters or oldies- many go bonkers on catching a sight of him. Here are few differences that make Dus Ka Dum stand apart from the likes of Kaun Banega Lakhpati, Crorepati, Arabpati, and Are You smarter than a so-and-so Standard.

A. While game shows of the past were more outwardly money oriented, with the host showing off the cheque book in between the telecast, signing lavishly, and handing it over to the contestants, Dus Ka Dum is based more on the pattern of fun, gaiety, love, and affection. No formal show offs!

B. Recent games shows, hosted by some so-called Kings of Bollywood, harps more on your intellect and mental power. While in Dus Ka Dum, you just have to flaunt your wisdom. Intellect is the accumulation of facts, and Wisdom is the direct result of experience of an individual. Dus Ka Dum deals with realism, not naturalism.

C. To participate in other shows, you have to be prepared. A lot of home-work, and brain storming is involved. "May be they ask a question from this chapter! Or that subject! Lemme give it a quick look!" You might also have to gulp an energy drink to say in confidence, "This is the secret of my energy!" And with Dus Ka Dum, you can wear your heart on your sleeves and go in full tune!

D. All of us need a support in our happy, not-so-happy, and constant times. Dus Ka Dum pattern allows its contestant help at every question. It eases a great portion of tension (if any) from the contestant’s mind. For other game shows, I only remember that either they put a big cross on your Lifeline, indicating, NO MORE HELP NOW! Or the host says "You can cheat from a kid’s notebook." A good source of humiliation for few, eh! In DKD, you have a good margined window- khidki as they call it. Then there is your partner to help you, and the ever-so-supporting Janta, who is allowed to scream to their fullest, and help each and every contestant. What else can one ask for?

E. I wonder if a pappu who is difficult-with-studies or a 12th pass person, or a 18-year-old kid can answer "the largest gland in the human body" or "the chemical reaction of alpha and beta" with any dexterity. Yes a Phd., MA, MBA might! Now look at the Dus Ka Dum format- Be it an MBA, Engineer, Doctor, Lawyer, or a Sweeper, Coal Miner or Housewife, anyone can guess, to some accuracy if not full, about the number of Indians who are afraid of a dentist! Clearly, Dus Ka Dum has a wider scope. It encompasses both the masses, and the classes.

As for the USP of DKD host, no words suffice. Watch the show, and find it for yourself. Dus Ka Dum- Mere Saath Nahi Khel, To Kya Khela!

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…
