Rahman bags 2 Oscars...Slumdog bags 8

And Rahman ended his acceptance speech by saying, Ella Pughazhum Eraivanukke..."All my success and achievements are dedicated to God, God is great."

Finally Indian music got recognition. Thank you Rahman Sir. We love you.

However I must say, I was a little surprised that Slumdog won the Best Film Award. It makes me wanna see the movie again and check what did they like so much in the film. Personally the film wasnt any new for me. Just the usual rags-to-riches story of a slum dweller. What has been potrayed isnt new. All those hardships of slumdwellers has got a lot of screen space even earlier.

But I guess I will never understand the way Oscars is supposed to work. So thats that.

My heartiest congratulations to all who are benefitted from the victory and my salute to Mr Rahman...

I just recovered from one of the gruelling many-to-few encounters we students have to face so often..against a handful of professors whose sole purpose in life, it seems, is to make the life of innocent students hell...

Really I mean why cant we NOT have exams...

What is the purpose when we do not study for the whole year..and during the last few days when we suddenly realize that the war is on us and that nothing can help us evade it..and then somehow after many sleepless nights and futile attempts to cover d entire course material in a few hours we manage to emerge victorious (assuming just having fought the war is victory) obviously with deep ever lasting wounds inflicted upon ourselves...

But who cares...the lull AFTER the storm is what we care about now...

Thats it for now..If you feel the same way about exams, do post comments...maybe we can sart some sort of an online petition against exams and send it to a certain Mr Arjun that the response to online petitions is terrific..(referring to the pink chaddi campaign)

P.S: Dont take me seriously on this petiton thing ;)

CASH is on my mind!!

hey all..howz u doing?

Hrithik Roshan’s Kites has reportedly been sold for a whopping Rs 150 crore to Reliance Big Pictures, setting a new record.

When I read this in the papers today, I couldnt help thinking...

150 crores!! can u imagine..

No, wait...I dont think u get it...Ironically, the actual amount had not caught my attention,no..the issue of handling that much cash had...

Come to think of many people would have actually seen that much cash...

Many thanks to modern day banks..

Just imagine if all transactions had to be done in cash, I doubt , Tatas and Birlas would exist.
I mean...where would you store all your money?? Or maybe you would have to build money bins just like Uncle Scrooge. How would u feel if instead of ATM vestibules and banks, we had individual money bins that held all the hard earned cash(OK, the not so hard earned cash as well, but thats not the point)? What if you had to move out or something? You shift your money bins as well! Trucks full of currency notes maneuvering across streets!! Maybe we would have money bins for hire available in each block...

Makes me love the very idea of banking..What say u???
