The (mis)Adventures of Phulka & Phulki

Now, before I start, let me introduce you to my dear friends Phulka and Phulki.
Phulka is your quintessential 18 year old, uh...well, Phulka. And Phulki is his (going to be) lover girl, who is a little younger to him in age.


Phulka and Phulki weren't like other couples, you know. They were different. Don't ask me how. They just were. Okay, if you really want to know, then I'll tell you.
First of all, the age differerence. It wasn't much. Just a couple of years and a half or something like that. That didn't make them love each other any less.
Phulka and Phulki met in school. Phulka was the hot senior guy in the twelfth grade and Phulki was the geeky tenth grader. They never spoke much until he asked her out. Before that, it was just a few 'hello's and 'hi, how you doing?'s here and there. More of a social obligation.

Phulki had always had a huge crush on Phulka. But obviously, she was scared to admit it, for various reasons. For one, he was SUPER HOT, and just thinking of making conversation with him made her mouth dry. Let alone him, Phulki didn't even tell her closest companions. Two, she thought that he would never be interested in a nerd like her. Three, she assumed that Phulka would have had a girlfriend already, who was also very much attractive, like he was.
Little did she know, that Phulka was secretly in love with her. All his friends would drop hints all the time but she would never have guessed that her secret admirer was Phulka.

(to be continued)

Do let me know how you get along with Phulka and Phulki. ^_^

Of fraandship.

Good friends.
Best friends.
Some are good friends. Some friends we like better than others. Some friends know us, some really don't. But when can you really use the superlative? Who is a best friend?

When did reality become TV?

I don't know what's wrong with the Indian junta. Really.
If you're wondering what I'm referring to, then it's the most recent "reality show" on Sony Television by the name X-Factor. In case you've never heard of it, it's one of those shows those (hardly) musical shows where people from all over the country take part in it hoping to become "hep" Bollywood singers.

In the good old days, when every Indian didn't own a mobile phone, crucial decisions like deciding who is to win such contests were taken by professional musicians.
However, since the past half a decade or so, these decisions have been left to a tone-deaf population of 1 billion who base their decisions not on what they hear, but on where the contestant hails from. if he/she is from the same state/community/caste, the  contestant is ensured a vote.
At least that's what it looks like.
X-Factor's first season was won by the most horrible singer on the entire show. Gah.
First of all, these shows are already uninteresting because the contestants sing the same old Bollywood movie songs ; there's not a speck of originality in anyone's performances. There were a couple of groups that really stood out, though, whom I expected to see in the finals, but the Indian audience is apparently satisfied with mediocre singers and their mediocre voices. Watching talented singers' dreams getting crushed is not the nicest sight.

Speaking of "reality TV", Kaun Banega Crorepati is back and the only reason you'd still wanna watch it is because Amitabh Bachchan hosts it. I don't like it when things like these change. Why isn't there a lifeline called 50-50 anymore? Why do they make autobiographic video clips for the contestants? Why can't they cut all that emotional crap and just play the game?! Why is there so much sentiment on a quiz show?
I miss the earlier seasons of KBC when the contestants just came, played took the money and went. That's what an actual quiz show should be like. Who cares why the contestant is playing the game? Even if they did, there is certainly no need for a video clip to be made. It could certainly be brought up in conversation while the contestant is playing the game.

Also, the shows that they are on kids' channels these days, makes me sad. There's just too much of graphics and and too much of noise. The characters have annoying voices that make want to crash the TV screen. And yes, the kind of language that they use, has its effect on the kids. I have experienced it first hand. There's just too much of trash talk coming out of my lil' sister's mouth these days.

And do not even get me started on VH1. JUST DO NOT.
They air Jersey Shore. 'Nuff said.

I hope the producers are listening.
