His legs feel like jelly
Knees buckling,standing seems a huge task at present.
A funny feeling in his stomach,
The pancakes at breakfast seem to have come alive
He can hear his heart
It might just burst out of his chest.
The curtains go up
He feels like someone poured cement on his head.
He brings the mic close to his face
Tries to remember what he wrote down
“Opens his mouth but the words just won’t come out”
Perspiring like a criminal taking a polygraph test.
The crowd is getting impatient
His opponent’s arrogant smirk sapping the last of his self-belief.
He begins his first line but the crowd is booing
They don’t wanna hear,they just wanna heckle him
He wishes a lightning from heaven would strike him
He throws down the mic and rushes out of the stage
His dreams burnt to ashes
His months and years of preparation wasted
In a few seconds
And he knows the chance won’t come again.

He enters his room
Everything is just the same
Smell of dinner coming from kitchen
Brother and sister fighting over tv again
He opens a drawer
Finds what he was looking for
Smiles for the first time in the day;
Then points it to his temple and shoots himself.
As the blood around his lifeless body
Forms different ingenious patterns
Everything else still remains the same.
Except for a man and his boyhood dream.

Plagiarism In Bollywood

Well I was getting bored sitting idly doing nothing.So I decided to make a list of Bollywood movies that copied from hollywood movies just to pass time.This is what I got.I am still reeling,

hum tum--- when harry met sally

sarkar--- the godfather(how dare to compare marlon brando and al pacino with the bacchans)

hey babyy-- 3 men and a little lady

partner-- hitch

kyon ki..---- one flew over the cuckoo's nest

chak de india-- a league of their own/miracle

ek ajnabee-- man on fire (fully copied)

kayamat-- the rock

dhoom-- fast and furious,ocean's 11

speed-- cellular

murder-- unfaithful

the train-- derailed

akele hum akele tum---kramer vs kramer

maan---an affair to remember

chori chori chupke chupke-- pretty woman

meri yaar ki shaadi hain-- my best frnds wedding



Kaante-Reservoir Dogs

Mujhse shadi karogi-meet the parents and anger management

Chocolate-the usual suspects

Musafir- U-turn


Dhamaal-Rat Racxe/Johnny English/Road Trip

God tussi great ho-Bruce almighty

Kyunki main jhoot nehi bolta-Liar Liar

Aitraaz – Disclosure

Baadshah - Nick of Time, Teen Agent, Rush Hour

Baazigar - A Kiss From Dying

Dil hai ki manta nahin-it happened one night

Jo jeeta wohi sikander-breaking away

Chamatkar-blackbeard’s ghost

Rangeela- Win a Date with Tadf Hamilton

Ghulam-on the waterfront

Sangharsh-silence of the lambs

Dhai akshar prem ke-walking in the clouds

Kahin pyar na ho jaaye-the wedding singer

Humraaz-a perfect murder

Kuchh to hai-I know what you did last summer

Rang de basanti-all my sons /jesus montreal

I see you-just like heaven

The killer-collateral



Bheja fry-diner de cons

U me aur hum-the notebook

Race-goodbye lover

Shaurya-a few good men

Dasvidaniya-Bucket list

That covers a lot.I cant go any longer.Next I heard they are making a remake of the prestige,and a remake of forrest gump.If the actor with the maximum number of plagiarised movies in the list is Aamir Khan considered Indiawide as one of the greatest actors of the country,you know there is a big problem with creativity.Respect originality.Not some rip-off.For these movies are nothing more than that.Gotcha!!

Hang on,hang on boy
I cant seem to hang on
My grip seems to be loosening
My muscles are on fire
Screaming to me to give in
Would be so easy to give in
Let go of everything
Oh Blissful Oblivion
Rest me in your lap
I am tired and want to sleep
The night is peaceful
Suddenly a demon appears
His face is a silhouette
His voice is hoarse
“Don’t give up” he screams
His voice cuts like a knife
Brings me back
From my peaceful utopia
Back to this wasteland
Of shattered dreams
I tried to pretend
That the dreams were true
The utopia was real
But now I know better
The dreams are beautiful
They soothe the night
But they are not mine
The nightmares hurt
But they are my real friends
They help me remember
The mistakes I made.

The Straight Edge Movement

Straight Edge refers to a lifestyle and youth movement that started within the hardcore punk subculture whose adherents make a lifetime commitment to refrain from drinking alcohol, using tobacco products, and taking recreational drugs. The term was coined by the 1980s hardcore punk band Minor Threat in the song "Straight Edge".-Wikipedia

Among the youth of today there is a tendency to indulge in smoking,drinking and taking recreational drugs to be considered “cool”.There is also a misconception that most music bands indulge in these activities.You can say it has become almost fashionable to do these things.But what I would like to say here is that these concepts are absolutely wrong.There is no relation absolutely between music and these degrading habits.The greatest musician in India at present is undoubtedly A.R.Rahman.Does he need to smoke crack to come up with evergreen tunes???NO!!!!The straight edge movement was started by the fans of hardcore punk who believed in this truth.But you don’t have to be a straight edge fan to see how right they are.

Some people indulge in these habits to prove that they are THE men.But real men will never give in to these addictions.Men and women of integrity and character stays away from this.Only people who are mentally very weak and don’t have any willpower give in to such temptations.These habits have wrecked havoc on our society for a long time.Many bright futures have been lost to these filthy habits.Many promising careers have been cut short.And yet people keep surrendering to these filthy habits.And brag about it proudly.These people are the ones who are not only digging their own graves,but they take others down this path with them too.

Then there are other types of people who indulge in these habits to forget their pain.These people are even bigger fuck-ups.They would wallow in self-pity hour after hour rather than doing something constructive.If you have pain,face it.Don’t try to forget it like a coward.Face it and get over it.


Even though I am not a fan of hardcore punk,Yet I will join the straight-edge movement.Join it.Prove to yourself that you are strong.Stay away from these destructive habits.Enjoy life.Live life.
