It has been raining here for 2 days; so i am absolutely out of work!! kept reading reading wodehouse continuously for 2 days.
The beauty of wodehouse is; he will make you laugh so much; that people next to you think you are insane!! ofcourse i am insane and i know it. Add to it bike drives and biliards with your old college mates!! do you really want any other thing in this world!!
As i said earlier this blog is not just about myself. so i sometimes used the chat of some of my friends here also i used some of the chat details i talked with a friend ofmine.
okay getting back to the topic!! i was chatting with one of my IBM friends; we were just talking about good old school days and college days and ofcousre days in IBM!!
This girl believe me is something!! she can gladly accept that she believes in god only when she is scared of something..lol .. no offence to god himself.
she dreams of a new world she wanna enter with small huts and a big lawn and always imagined herself in the world in her letterpad along with the butterflies!!
i see another Alice in wonderland; only thing is mirror became a letterpad here.
let me quote some of her words " i thought of writing a diary; once i started penning it down; i understood that i need to write more than i intend to write. so i stopped writing!!" man i loved these words.
She used to write poems on uncles and aunts who used to visit her home!! believe me she did type some 2 lines in telugu; man i laughed whole day.
Well naturally i started thinking of my own good old days.and i think i need to confess something here
People who know me after my 10th class days can never knew what I was before. for I never cared for marks or i never competed with anyone from that time.
But i was a totally different kid in my School days. In my words , I was an Ass, that too a typical ass.!!
but ofcourse i had two different personilities at that time; better side always said always help people and enjoy ur life.( Dont ask me whats enjoying life; they are deep waters.. we can talk all day and we go no where). i used to enjoy my cricket; used to watch all the cartoons ( man i loved he-man and spider man)
But the other side was very bad.An over enthusiastic typical kid from a middle class family. I used to be too ambitious to get marks that i used to run after teachers and did everything to please them. I was a guy who always thought of getting first rank and first mark by hook or crook.
get me those days back!! i will spend more time playing cricket or marking more friends instead of mugging all the crap! well ofcourse i am not against reading new things but mugging the stuff and the spoon feeding is the thing i really hate.
after all u mug 'Social' all year including the width of the castle built by Ashokha and may be u end up with 94 %. But at the end u lost one year;
My mind was a stereo type; which thought of nothing except to finish off engineering and to settle in a good job.
Only when i came out, joined in hostel; and met people; i started thinking different.
We used to roam around the nearby jungle in my +2 days and used play cricket in the ground bunking all classes. I had one hell of a gang at that time. They are all in touch with me and are helping a lot in my new project. Well then I still remember Aditya telling me stories of the hollywood movies he has seen till that time!! he was one hell of a narrator i ever met in my life. one of the few guys i really loved.
And the best thing that happened was i started learning from life; instead being bookish.I started to think for myself.Slowly i started writing something.
But friends If you write something for the first time; my suggestion is please dont give it to people around you. After all they have to live.Atleast; thats the thing that happened to movie. I wrote a big novel in telugu ( my mother tongue), Believe me when i read that after 3 months; honestly i felt that it is the worst work i have ever seen in my life. Thanks to Raghav and Anil who read that crap and still survived without commiting suicide.
Engineering was ofcourse the best i had ; and everything changed a lot from that time!! and i pretty well know that i am going to make and do what ever i wanna do from then onwards!
And getting back to the future; i am done with my auditions and did shoot some of the scenes. and i am pretty well happy with the progress as of no and also happy to have an excellent team.
But then this project gives mixed feelings ( High and low) . The fact is anything might happen any time. People may drop out anytime; and new people may join in the very second.And everything goes smooth very day and more shots can be shot than planned; or sometimes nothing would happen and we need to pack up just because it rained!! the worst blow was when Nishesh said he might not be here all the year and there are many good moments; finding nice actors and actresses. and getting past the admission scene coolly and pulling in Prof mukherjee as father role. Thanks to Sahil and Khusboo they are keeping incredible effort in this endeavour.
This project is teaching me many things apart from making movie itself.
The best thing it is teaching me is to make myself flexible and to be ready anytime for thing anytime. and what ever it happens just give your best at the end of the day!! man its teaching me Bhagavath Geetha itself... Lol
Whatever it is we are going to do this. and we gonna rock!!
3 cheers to life
