Party it up!

So we were out Saturday night.... on a whim and a fancy.... thought we'd go clubbing - it's been a while now.Started out at this place in Defence COlony above Moets... I forget the name - but it was something about a STONE!
Met some interesting young ladies... (for the first time) .... and had Sups giving me the long distance.... " watch out buster" look!!
I was on my very best prim and proper behavior....
Chetna & Mahima.... making a point!
Sudhanshu & Sups share a conspirational whisper.... i capture the moment as Rachita is sandwiched!!
It's been a long long time since we went clubbing - it's like the concept has gone out of fashion. SUps had been insisting on it for a bit - so I took the initiative and we headed out to CAPITOL at the ASHOKA. To be honest nothing has changed about the party scene in the last year and a half. The DJs are still confused about the music and the junta in Delhi throws arms and legs around in the hope for a Punjabi Bhangra number (all the time).
This time around - we saw a couple of 45+ uncle types with teenyboppers on their arms. Not very difficult to guess that this was the paid help. So as one of the young ladies finished her gyrations and sat next to sups - I put in a word to Sups (whisper) - " have you ever sat next to a lady of the night?" She said NOPE and then i clarified to to the young lady sitting with her. You should have seen her jump - i wish i could have clicked a pic.... unfortunately wasn't carrying a camera.
I'm not trying to make a moral / immoral point here. But there is something to it. If I hadn't told her about it - maybe she wouldnt have guessed. Now that she knew it - her viewpoint changed and while the lady hadn't said/done /hoped to do anything to her... age old bias' came forward.
I try in my life not to be biased, prejudiced & religiously discriminatory - but I am.

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…

We had a mixed crowd and more …
