The Navaratri Dandiya Raas

Dandiya Raas, the integral part of the Navaratri celebrations, predominantly in Northern regions of the Subcontinent, is a wholesale Raasaleela; a mass orgy.

This mating ritual is a manifestation of the decadence perpetrated by say, the Kyunki... typecast TV soaps, where adultery is the thread that holds the feeble script together.

Here in Bangalore it used to be held at Palace grounds, the "Hallowed Concert Arena". (no idea of this season). (oh yeah, Central College Grounds!)

There are statistics reported of a rise in 'participants' seeking termination of unsought pregnancy.
Not to mention, the STD chain reaction initiated in this melting pot for the worse of the society.

So goys, dress up n bait some easy lays;
& the moral police are hibernating.

some lyrics:
"dandiya aatamam aad
Dussera kootamam kood
Gujarat kumarigalaad
Kadalan kadaliya thede
-Dandiya, from the movie KadalarDinam

Happy Dussera!

Remembering Shankar Nag

October 2nd, apart from being the birthday of Sri M.K Gandhi & Sri L.B Shastri is
the day we lost beloved Shankar Nag to a freak mishap, 15 years ago.

Were you among with us you would have scaled boundless heights n outclassed
everyone out there in the industry.

Autoraja, you continue to live as goes your song from the movie 'Geeta':
Jothe Jotheyali Iruvenu heege endu...
Hosa Harushava taruvenu heege endu...

I'll be with you together this way
I'll bring you new joy everyday.

Iron Maiden set at the Ozzfest sabotaged by Sharon Osbourne

The Ozzfest Debacle Saturday 20th August at the Hyundai Pavillion, LA - "Ozzfest, hang your head in shame."
>>Yahoo News: Iron Maiden And Sharon Osbourne Clash At Maiden's Final Ozzfest:

>>Read a full account on Blabbermouth.net:

>>Excerpts of Bruce's Interview with The Sun:
The Sun Online: So what happened when you went on stage at Ozzfest?

Bruce Dickinson: "We were hit by a co-ordinated barrage of bottle tops, lighters and eggs from a certain section at the front! Then the power for the PA and backline was completely pulled three or four times during songs. The band held it all together incredibly though and we just got really pumped up. It ended up being an amazing show. MAIDEN can pretty much deal with anything. We don’t get fazed too easily."

The Sun Online: Who do you think was behind it all?

Bruce Dickinson: "Everyone knows it's Sharon Osbourne. It's certainly not Ozzy or SABBATH — they have too much class to condone stunts like that. She hates me for making remarks about reality TV. I hate reality TV. People should get off their arses and do stuff and not be so voyeuristic."

The Sun Online: Her stunts seemed to backfire as you played a magnificent set and soon after, thousands walked out in disgust?

Bruce Dickinson: "We left for the airport pretty well straight after we came off but we could tell there were a lot of disgusted fans who had paid good money to see us. The audience was incredibly behind us all the way and they really lifted us. If they hadn't been happy, there may have been a riot as those fans were really disgusted with the cowardly attacks."

>>IRON MAIDEN Manager Comments On OSBOURNE Camp's 'Disgusting' And 'Unprofessional' Behavior:

It was a truly memorable moment when Bruce went to the very front of the stage during Trooper - something which he never normally does as he is usually on the ramps - waving the flag whilst avoiding the hail of missiles and yelling 'This is a fucking British flag, and these colours don't fucking run!'. The imperturbable attitude and ability of the band shone through and in the end made this a truly remarkable rock and roll event, even if for all the wrong reasons.

We will have no more to say on this matter except that l do think the band deserve an apology from a number of people, and you know who you are.

Manager - Iron Maiden

p.s: just reflecting on what true-blue metal gods are made of. For the record, apart from being Maiden lead vox, Bruce Dickinson is a licensed Boeing747 pilot, accomplished guitarist, has tasted success as a solo artist, is a Olympics qualified fencing champ, and an ex-infantry man, a genuine trooper. Whoa! being any one of them would be a lifetime accomplishment!. And Sharon, you cant mess with someone of that calibre.

>> recounting a similar event - Silver Jubilee year of Rajnikanth's services in the Indian Cinema Industry,with Mrs. Latha Rajinikanth at the helm:
" Latha Rajnikanth is arranging a mega-show to celebrate 25 years of Rajni in tamil cinema. The theme of the event is 'Entertainment for a cause' and the proceeds will go towards the 'Ashram School' run by Latha. The events include a film festival of Rajni's movies - selected by the Superstar himself - and an exhibition of wigs, guns and other props used by Rajni in his movies. At the end of the festival a star-studded , public meeting will be held. Latha plans to invite international stars like Jackie Chan too for this extravaganza. Watches with the Rajni-25 logo, posters, coins and other souveneirs will be released to mark the occasion. The whole festival is expected to start on December 12 1999, Rajnikanth's 50th birthday. "

This lady released a record with songs sung by her to assert she too was talented, ticketed the event much against Rajni's wishes, elicited bad press and left the fans fuming.

The moral of the story is ...

Sambhar of 69 Tuned to Summer of 69

this is from one of those mail fwds i made a folly of opening. some college kid has tried too hard to write the lyrics. anyway, full credits to her/him. and humour cant get any more stale as the sambar.

Sambhar of 69 (lyrics) tuned to Summer of 69

I had my first real six rupees,
stole it from my father's pants.
went to a madrasi hotel,
to eat the sambhar of 69.
Me and some kadke dost,

had it all and we caught bukhaar,
jimy puked, joey got ulcers,
and Bagga ne maari dakar.

Oh when I went back there now,
the food was as stale as ever,
and though it was 1999,
still the sambhar was being served over there,

that was the worst food of my life.

Therez no use in complaining,
when you got no other place to eat,
rushed in the evening to the doctors clinic,
but he too was at the toilet seat, yeah

standing there waiting outside,
nurse told me I will wait forever,
oh and when I held my breath,
I knew that I had to use that loo there
That was the worst food of my life.

Back to the sambhar of 69.

Man I was getting killed,
I was full and restless,
I needed to unwind,
I guess nothing can wait forever - FOREVER... NO!!!!

And now the dhabas are changing,
new dishes have come and gone,
sometimes when I pass that old madrasi lane,
I still smell it, I can't be wrong.

Standing in those unwashed clothes,
the waiters still call me in there,
oh the way my nostrils burn,
I know that it will be served forever,
what was the worst food of my life.

yeah it was the sambhar of 69,

the sambhar, the sambhar, the sambhar of 69 ……………
