Lunch of 4 - Live from New york....

This is the first post of a new series that I start today "Lunch of 4 - Live from new york....".

How it all began -

Four crazy minds working at the world largest exchange for Oil. What would you expect?

Billion dollar ideas - Nahhhhhh
Trading Strategy- Nope
Complex algorithm - Can't u get one thing right???

BULLSHITT - That's correct!!

The Founders of bullshit -

Dhiren a.k.a Dhiren- You know the perfect guy!!

Balan a.k.a Manisha - He went on maun vrat(vow for silence) for 5 mins once, ever since he has been unleashed. What google finds with all the intelligence, he does it with pure imagination...

prashant a.k.a Veeru - Ever since his lookalike got killed, this former bandit has been trying to smell computers for some sandlewood!

Jassi a.k.a Jassi- well how do I describe him..hmmmm...Let's just say he is a 8086 in the world of Pentium...Slow ain't the word...SPECIAL is!!

The lunch talk

Veeru is enjoying his last few days at work before he is shipped back to his native zoo in kerela, never mind he will be with us in spirit. May his soul rest with plenty of chicken, jassi’s rotis, though he may hate to admit some of my food and of course balan’s Olive oil…Ughhhhh…I don’t know what that means. Balan came up with a million dollar idea. You know to be all “resourceful” at work, more on that later. Jassi asked a few questions about evolution and concluded that he hasn’t evolved yet…LOL! Our guest Varsha came with 2 pieces of chicken 1 roti and some rice. She is yet to get a hang of what is happenin’ around her. God save her before it’s too late. Our other guest Sujit just kept laughing with his head down …Don’t know what he was doing …too much of self love I guess!!

Bollywood Movie Review - Life mein kabhie kabhie

Ok, so you see a poster with bunch of young boys and girls in fancy designer clothes and bright colors splashed all over, the conclusion is yet another cliched movie about desi youth. Well, I started watching this movie with the same notion but first 15 minutes and I was just glued to it.

The way director navigates thru the lives of 5 individuals and the ones around them is amazing. This is one movie with a message and the viewer gets that unlike other movies where message is lost somewhere in the trash they build up for audience. I am still surprised how Namastey London made over 50 crores worldwide !! It's a torture, military should use it on terrorists.

Anyways coming back to the LMKK, I think as a writer one can choose to traverse thru any path but I think wrtiing is about being real, mapping it as closely to real world as possible. With that I wonder that in one of the tracks why the girl chose raj zutsi's character over Dino Morea's. After all he was stinking rich too. Few minor blemishes rest all looks SAVVY.

Recommendation: Go watch it!
