" I would call you up every Saturday night
And we both stayed out 'til the morning lig ht
And we sang, "Here we go again"And though time goes by
I will always be, In a club with youIn 1973
Singing "Here we go again"

Thats how this song of James Blunt goes by & it makes me smile .I had actually hated that " you are beutifaaaaaaaal" song , but this one sings of an era where the guy still calls up 'Simona' even when he's really old.

& no I'm not going mushy or expecting the same , i just tend to like this song :)

Then again, saw a movie "THE HOLIDAY " day before yesterday .
this is what a really old guy in the movie said

In a movie there's always a leading lady
&there's a best friend , but for some reason ,
you are behaving like the best friend of your life

For the time being , I cant really find words more truer than these. Its nice to be good to others , but there's a leading lady in all of us , is'nt there ? all we have to do is let her take hold :)

"1973", was Blunt's first Global Number 1 and the girl from his lyrics "Simona" was indeed based on a real woman he had met at the club.I like the lyrics . THE HOLIDAY is again a good good movie , Jude Law's two kiddos were ulti cute .

we just have to find her!

Yes there is a leading lady in you as well as the best friend in you. Its like in the matrix whether you want to take the blue pill or the red pill.

If you take the red pill you will be blessed with the life you always wanted, live like a princess with your prince. But if you take the blue pill, you will return to your normal life but you will be allowing someone else to take the red pill. The choice is yours and you have to make one when the time is right. lol..Does it make any sense?

Anyway, its another mushy song from James Blunt.
Simple music and simple words but very catchy.

ur thought sare very well defined in all of ur posts....

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

might be , actually that line appealed me more , true true , I dont know if the dots really gets connected , but it is something that we can retrospect rather than predict, I just hope in my case it does :).

A Benevolent Sultan for Life said...

A Benevolent Sultan for Life said...

A Benevolent Sultan for Life said...

Why sry bachchi ? I wish I could sing
:( .

A Benevolent Sultan for Life said...

Actually my singing talent is tantamount to first half of 'Gupi Gyne's ' life , If I sing people here
will take out Idlys from their lunch box and throw at me , as far as the Idlys are concerned I am fine with them but I am bit scared of its liquid counterpart , "chutney" or sambar :) .

Paya hai Google is searching for two
persons who by their trenchant wit has managed to convert their ( otherwise meant for intellectual ) blogspot into a scrap book :) , bachchi bhag ja , meye bhi chup jata hoon :), pakde jane par bahut badi punishment hai .

A Benevolent Sultan for Life said...

Wow those were the best nomenclature,
I have earned , chalon taliyaaan .

No I am not a pedophile , I am not a salacious hopeless, casting carnal lusts on virtual friends but definitely the other one was true , I did kill Time .

A Benevolent Sultan for Life said...

Believe me you are a Kiddo , kiddo with ruddy cheeks , kiddo who runs her nose , soils her handkerchief, with a bandanna on her head and a half licked lolly on her hand , which sometimes gets mixed with the confluent fluid from the nose flowing as streams , and as kiddo licks her lolly she relishes its taste and smiles , don't know if it is the taste of chocolate or the nasal fluid that makes her smile , :) .

A Benevolent Sultan for Life said...

Oye kiddo I was kidding , I am too bad at it :( , was too happy today without any particular reason , aree you are too good I know that , well you wrote that but otherwise I thought I knew all about that , I am just another jobless, , bas masti karte rehta hoon, just plain ignore.

You will get the fruition of the hard work some day .
