5 Point Someone vs 3-Idiots



I watched the movie 3-Idiots on 27th December. I had had a number of recos from friends to watch it asap. My dire desire was to see 42 goin on to 21! And, to be very true, I didn’t recognize Amir as 42 or 21 years old guy. He appeared as a representative typical collegiate, and I enjoyed the movie. The Wangdu thing was really quite unexpected and appealing.

Well, one thing that I noticed REMARKABLY was that the movie was having 5PS as its soul, no doubt, even though I read that quite a time back and don’t remember it all! Friend who recommended it to me also said so. Ryan’s transformation into Ranncchoddas or Rancho could not go unnoticed. The very scene of Raju’s (Sherman Joshi) home where his mother’s every sentence was ending with some commodity-index listing drove me directly to 5PS.

All said, as I understand all the media brouhaha about this Chetan Bhagat's 5PS vs 3Is case, is that one day CB sahib woke up and suddenly learns that he’s not received opening credited, but a closing-credit. However, Vidhu sahib says closing credit was what signed in the contract. CB’s problem also lies with the fact that movie is 70% 5PS, while he was assured it being 2-5%! Yaar, how do they do these correlation studies? May be taught in IITD or IIMA!?

Whatever, the fuss CB and VVC are creating on media, and the annoyance it’s generating on social networks is just getting bigger and worse! I haven’t seen the movie Hello, and don’t know whether it credited A Night At Call Center or not? So, cant say money is thing agitating CB or not? It’s difficult to decide who’s on right side, who’s playing the cards, and whether it has got to do anything with publicity?

My say is that both the parties should sit together in peace, have a cup of coffee of their choice, discuss the fuss and solve the problem without making any further stride in this non-productive ruckus! VVC should acknowledge book’s contribution to movie, and CB should accept the situation. We all know, movie was good, and was based on CB's work! Isn't it the Best Award for a Good writer?!

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill.

Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle, that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill. I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’s a Bus…

Riders of the Nation of a Billion - Dimensions and Horizons

Incidentally I wrote a post of my tranformation from just around the corner corporate junkie into a Rider (for sure, still gradually) few days ago. Now, here are the Indibloggers with a Contest for the Bikers of the Nation with Castrol guys.


When you look at the scenario of Biking in a general sense, you would be attracted by the road-rowdies and rookies who ride to spread nuisance and are mostly acknowledged for their deeds by the newspaper. Hooligans may be the right word.But, once you get involved with the passion, you would be able to see how the passion of Biking, or rather Riding, is evolving in the country where 2-wheelers over-power 4-wheelers by scores of galactic height, but have never earned respect on highways just coz they are the smallest-speeding machine there! I would try to let you through the Indian Riders tale, so that you  be able to appreciate how the riders of the Country are working, though in a segregative way, to evolve the Bikers’ Code for the Nation of…

An evening in the Chilika Lake

(This post has been published in TheViewspaper as The Paradise called Chilika)

This year seems to be much more happening than I expected. I realized it when I got an invitation from a senior colleague to attend his marriage at Bhubaneshwar. Hidden was another invitation to revisit the Puri-beach and also the Chilika Lake.


I hadn’t still come out of the hangover of my pan-India ride, when the date to fly to the City of Temples knocked at doors. Packing the very morning of departure with least pairs of casuals and 3sets of party wears, I joined Kaustav and Abhimanyu bhaiya on our tour de Chilika and Puri, also the Odiya Wedding.


Chilika Lake is the largest coastal lagoon in India and the second largest in World. It is an essentially shallow brackish water lagoon on the east coast, spread over the districts of Puri, Khurda and Ganjam of Odisa state. The lake, popularly known as Chilka, was designated the first Indian Wetland of International importance under the Ramsar Convention, in 1981. …
