Indiblogger ZeeTV Connected HumTum Meet: Sharing What was just Personal....

PERSONAL adjective \ˈpərs-nəl, ˈpər-sə-nəl\        1: of, relating to, or affecting a particular

This is what Merriam-Webster suggests as the definition of Personal. And not much differing, for me ‘Personal’ means just personal, no intervention, limited input-output interaction. Now, here are these 6-girls from different walks of life, each having not only a different story to tell but also an altogether different way to tell it – at ZeeTV’s new Prime time Reality show ConnectedHumTum.

Indiblogger’s Meet
I had a really real hectic and screwed up time last week. I wanted to go to this event, but it was on a weekday, and again about a sorta daily soap opera which I have been least interested about. But, I wanted to meet follow bloggers and its always be great to be at Indiblogger’s meets to explore more like you and then I did a little research and gotta know it is not a soap opera but something I wouldn’t ever think to be a part of (yes, I may say yes if they ask to be on BiggBoss, but not here). After the regular blogger stuff,
we were asked how many of us will be ready to share the all we live every day and no surprised none said Aye; then came forward the ladies, sitting amongst us, who agreed to share their lives on National Television.

The Ladies
Paromita Vohra, the one who directed the show, was the one who told us about the concept and how they finalised with the courage of these six women. Preeti Kochar, a Dentist by profession, a Belly Dancer by love, aw loving wife with a smart kid and caring mother in law, was the first to share what she feels and was also the last who answered the question that was not even clearly understood by the audience ;) Pallavi Barman is Brand Manager at Diesel and has just got married with a guy for whom the family meant only guy-thing. Mahima Chaudhary is a small town girl with big dreams in this big city, she feels lonely without her parents support. Sonal Giani, a freak girl who’s an LGBT activist with Humsafar Trust, and has got an identical twin sister, is still to know will her lover’s family even accept them, like her family accepted her decision? Madhavi Mauskar is though the eldest of the league is for sure the youngest of all :) She has got a story and is now in a Catch22 situation of what to do and worse Why to do it? Sixth one, and not the least (though widest ;) is Malishka Mendonca, India’s best known RJ, who signals love but hops the road signals.

The Show
Now the thing is that these six ladies will have to carry a camera all day along, shoting-recording not what they are up to but also sharing with it what they thinking as if to one’s best friend. I am not sure what all part would be true, or if some part of the show would be like they say cooked up, but it no doubts need courage to share anything, even if it’s untrue, with a camera that directly (with edits of course) transmits it the world. Honestly, for a few ladies I may associate success in their career as a point to join such a weirdo show, but what for those who have already got a so called settled life?

To appreciate something, and even to criticise something constructively we better watch it (like I read MeinKampf before having a view on Hitler), so I wont be reviewing it here. But, for sure suggest that though I don’t feel to be a part of peeping into neighbours’ window kind of guy but I do watch reality show and will watch these too.

For a better reason, it may solve the eternal question, what the women WANT, for me :) Women have always been courageous than Men and have always got lot, hell lot more than Men to share, let’s see what’s with them now...

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 .  Evolving Biker Code of the Nation  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

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

What Travelling earns....People?

When travelling is your passion, you are bound to see a lot in your life, meet a thousand through your journey. I realised a day back only that most of us love to write what we did on our trip, what places we visited, how was the road, the hotel, the people. The People! Do we actually write about the people we met, or the men or women we spend a good time with? I did meet few people on rides, while flying or on train journey who left a deep impression on me. But, never actually took pain, if any, to jot down about them. Just them and there stories. So, in this post I will be talking about the People only, a few of the few meeting with whom I still cherish. If you RIDE a Bullet, you ought to know him There are many a people all over India and World, who love to ride. Few of them love to brag about there rides, most are just concerned about there rides. I belong to the earlier class, ride and blow your own trumpet! This person, about whom I’m writing this section, religiousl
