Trip to God’s Own Country (GOC)

Hi Friends,

Being in advisory servces allows  the luxury of travelling to locations as diverse as from Mumbai, Delhi to interior villages in Nagpur. I’m in Trivandrum (State Capital of Kerala) for the last 3 days. Some things which I observed here:

Simplicity: To take a fresh air, I had taken a stroll from my hotel yesterday evening. I was waiting to cross the busiest M.G. road then I saw a patrol lights of a car. Before I could blink, the car that followed it had the number plate saying it was the CM and he was followed by another patrol car. No traffic jams, no 10-12 cars following. I guess our respected politicians in other part of the country could take a leaf out of this. Hats Off Kerala CM…

Awareness: I read a snippet in FB which said ” If 10 people get swine flu….100000 people walk in the streets wearing masks, but even with crores affected with AIDS people do not wear CONDOMS”. Infact for the first time in my life I came across this shop in Trivandrum which should be implemented across the country. HLL (Hindustan Latex Ltd) runs a MOODS condom shop stocking all their products in M.G Road and a vending machine as well. See it for yourself. HATS OFF TO HLL

Atrocious: The first thing that caught my eye in the paper today morning apart from SRK playing the negative shade in Dhoom 3 was that 2 nurses were terminated in a Hospital in New Delhi for speaking in Malayalam. No No, they did not converse to patients but just greeted each other. I always thought India gave its citizens “FREEDOM OF SPEECH”…

MAGNANIMITY or MEGALOMANIAC: By the way, the article on SRK playing Villainy in Dhoom 3 is reportedly to save Yash Raj Films from the financial disaster they are into. SRK, know that he is a MASTER MARKETER himself, the reason I presume could be:

DHOOM: Hero –  AB Jr, Comedian – Uday Chopra, Villian – John “HOT” Abraham

DHOOM 2: Hero –  AB Jr, Comedian – Uday Chopra, Villian – Hrithik Roshan

When you compare the 2 films, the villain had scope for performance and in D2, junior Roshan was able to lip lock with to be Mrs. AB Jr in the movie. SRK had already created waves as DON. He would end up going the extra mile as well…With his team’s bad performance in IPL 2 as well, they now require a KNIGHT in shining armour to save them from the disaster they have gotten themselves into.
