Hey people, its been a very very busy week ! plus very less access to internet doesnt help… ! I havent replied to the comments in the last post and I need to do that, reading blogs is becoming increasingly difficult as I am rarely able to blog hop so please excuse my absence from some of the places, reading will still take some time to come back in… sigh !
As much as they say dont be a Taansen be a Kaansen, I cant help being a Taansen… its inherent in me… !
So while I dont have time to read and visit places I still have lots to tell people… it also seems the blog is also becoming a sort of a diary… btw I would love to show you this welcome I got at coming back to Bharuch…
Well in Gujarati they have written : Shuddh Shakahari !!!!!!!! They obviously dont mean me !!!!!!!!
Although Gujarat serves enough nonveg, there is a special emphasis on pure-veg restaurants, the variety of food available is totally awesome, gujarati’s by nature are a food loving community and being here means one thing for sure, I aint STARVING TO DEATH !!!!!!!! (in case you guys got worried… )
The English obsession of this state is unbelievable, every good English speaking guy or girl is always looked upon as a cool dude/dudette. So if you speak english well be sure a lot of them will be in Awe of you !!!!!!!! The spelling mistakes are classical throughout the entire state and I hope to now share them here as and when I come across them… ! What is also apparently apparent is people here can speak English without using Gujarati words, but cannot speak Gujarati without using english words, the language has totally been diluted, its a fusion of Gujarati and English !!!! you might as well call it Gujinglish !!!!!!! if this word sets the precedent… I surely want all the rights as I have just discovered it and established it… !
The other thing I have realised and realise it more and more with each passing day, I dont like the IPL, I dont like T-20 format all that much and with my Indian players playing against each other I just dont know which team I support…. Test Cricket is the best form of cricket and its getting proven to me all the time…
I strongly feel IPL is a pure example of killing the goose that laid the golden egg… already the popularity is not what it was, with two teams being added…next season will have 94 matches !!!!!!!!!! Absurd… two matches everyday for 45 days is not logical not practical and not at all something you crave for… ! We recently went to Inox to see a movie and were shocked that we were the only 7 people to go for the match and infact we left the match half and came out as the bloody owners didnt run the A/c trying to save money !!!!!!
I cannot believe I would ever write something like this, but I have not seen one match fully, it simply doesnt matter to me, believe me you I consider myself and actually am a very very very big fan of cricket, but guess I am a fan of Test Cricket, even ODI cricket doesnt sound all that appealing to me anymore unless against Australia or South Africa… !
Too much Cricket Mr. Modi too much and much tooo commercial… its better to see a bit of bitter rivalry, but what we see is a celebration where everyone is simply making money and this mindless market wont last forever, the consumer will lose interest eventually ! I hope I have made some wise proclamation !!!
The only fear I have is with so many matches making people shell out so much money for tickets, they will have no money left for Test Matches !!!!!! Guess I am obsessed with Tests but thats what Cricket is all about a contest between bat and ball not between two batting sides where the bowler is reduced to a pauper… This comes from a guy who is a fast bowler at heart !!!!! Sigh
Anyways… money is what drives any and everything, the other discerning fact I am obsessed with is Trees rather the lack of them in Gujarat suddenly ! Over the last 3-4 years some massive investments, developments and humongous infrastructure projects are going on, we have heard of thousands of crores worth of Mou’s etc being signed everymonth. While a lot of Gujarati’s were going gaga about the investments and development of Gujarat, what I have seen and realised is tremendous chopping of trees, societies where everything is in concrete no trees. Wonder how all people are forgetting that Trees are the life line for us humans… Unless some drastic turnaround is made and fast the weather here will be unbearable !!
I think in the next 10 years the amount of Plastic and the industrial waste combined with this mad rage to build concrete roads and huge buildings and structures… this state will develop only in quantity but the quality of living here will be most horrible !!!!! Man it seems is obsessed with development but I kinda feel its obsession with destruction… !!!! Sigh…
We friends are thinking of starting a plantation initiative if anyone can help and suggest some way please do, right now its only an idea and we have no clue how and what to do… and we are trying to find out !
And now before I keep ranting and ranting I would like to part with this song, I had almost forgotten this song from one of my most favourite movies, Gardish ! Recently I heard it about 15 days back and since then there has not been a day where I havent heard it once, infact had it playing in the loop once for 25 times !!! Do listen to this song and enjoy its SP and Asha at their very best !!!!!!!!!!
So folks I hope you loved the song, it was a desert after a badly cooked meal to leave the reader going back a lil happier to the comments section !!!!!!!!!
Cheerios… until next time…
