Ganesh and Ganesh

Sunday early morning: Saurav arrived here from Carbondale with couple of his friends. Saurav and Akhilesh spent the night at my place. Two of his other friends stayed at Sahu’s place. We were having a weekend party at that time. Damu, Nikhil, Manish, Kabra and Mama were here. Three 12-packs, all different brands and all lite :). Seems everybody is becoming health conscious these days. Saurav and I talked about old times. It was nostalgic. But he had to leave pretty soon as one of his friends had a meeting the same day (Sunday) at 1 PM. I also checked out his new Canon camcorder. Party ended and it was followed by heavy discussions. I could hear Nikhil’s voice a lot – maybe because of his high voice, maybe because of the “words” he was using 😉 !
Sunday was Ganesh Chaturthi. I woke up very late. Manish, Nikhil, Kabra and Damu went to Sitar and I was really sleepy at that time. So, I told them I would not come. Later I regretted it. I was feeling pretty bored at home. DSL was down from 4 AM in the morning and the GR internet lab was also not working. Had chips and pepsi for lunch because I am too lazy to cook!
Called up home, Cheche Naobi and Cheche Bheman. Today, I called up a bit earlier and so I was able to talk with Dada. DSL finally came up at around 4:30 PM. I know the approx time because I was checking the browser every 20 minutes! Downloaded some music videos and sorted them out.
Studied 580 a bit. Manish went to gym today and he came back pretty late. Completed last 2 months accounts with Manish. This time, KUB bill was higher and my personal phone bill too. I had made a lot of India calls from the landline in the last two months. Manish bought some parathas from Apna Bazaar. He also brought a DVD and I heard Damu brought some videos.
At night, we watched 3 Deewarein on DVD. I don’t know how popular it will be in India (btw, it’s rank 9 in this week’s top 10 on Rediff) but personally I liked the movie. It is nicely scripted and the actors have performed well. I won’t spoil the fun but the ending is really interesting and not the ending that you would have expected 10 minutes before the end of the movie! Nagesh Kukunoor has done a good job in this. Jackie Shroff and Naseeruddin Shah have always been great actors. And Juhi Chawla looked simple and beautiful and acted just great. There is another review from IndiaFM here.
This blog entry is named “Ganesh and Ganesh”. Wondered why? The first ‘Ganesh’ is Saurav Biswas. We used to call him Ganesh in school because of his tummy! And the second ‘Ganesh’ is for Ganesh Chaturthi. This entry was previously called “Saurav Biswas, Ganesh Chaturthi, 3 Deewarein”. But I thought, the current title sounded much better and shorter! 😉
