Here’s to women! :)

June 10, 2009

The tag’s finally been completed. Solilo tagged me for the Swicheroo tag

So here it is. I have had a gala timeย  trying to complete this tag ๐Ÿ˜€

As expected the tag’s been err stretched..okay REALLY stretched.But I am sure no one’s going to complain ๐Ÿ˜›

By the time I finished the tag I was confused. Had I done this tag imagining myself as a ย  guy? OR had I done it as a woman ? One who admired other women because they were strong, beautiful , capable and graceful while dealing with all that life had to offer them?

Whatever it is , I loved pondering over it.

1. Drew Barrymore

I have always found her cuteย  and more than a few guys agree ๐Ÿ˜€ (also since I am one too (a guy that is ๐Ÿ˜› )for the duration of this tag, please nod your heads in approval ๐Ÿ˜› )

2.Catherine Zeta Jones . Beautiful? Yes that too but more than that I find her to beย  very graceful.

3.Sandra Bullock ๐Ÿ™‚ Pretty much me (as far as attitude goes that is ๐Ÿ˜› ) I LOVED her in the movie Miss Congeniality.

So yeah wouldย  def want to date herย  if since I was am a guy . ๐Ÿ˜€

4. Thandie Newton.I dont know what it is precisely. Except that there is a certain charm about her. An elfin beauty if you will.

5.Julia Roberts as ‘Isabel’ and Susan Sarandon as ‘Jackie’ in Stepmom.

sjff_03_img1327

Ah!Why this pic?

Because I loved the characters in the movie Stepmom .

Two women each trying to come to grips with a reality that neither of them wanted or was prepared for. The way they both dislike each other at first and then slowly but surely come to terms with the situation.The way they discover how much they have in common.The way Julia Roberts’sย  character ‘Isabel’ falls in love with the stepkids and aches for their mom. The way Susan Sarandon’s character ‘Jackie’ย  cries silently in pain and in denial not wanting to leave her children to a stranger and yetย  knowing that she has to.

Convinced that noone could be as good a mom as her and terrified that they will forget her after she has gone.

You want to know why I love these characters so much?

Read this conversation that takes place between the two characters.

A little background first:-Jackie and Luke are a divorced couple with two kids Ana and Ben.Isabel is the new woman in Luke’s life .Jackie is suffering from cancer and has only a few days left to live.The movie is all about how these two women Isabel and Jackie come to terms with each other. Jackie realizes that after her death Isabel will be the new mom in Ana’s and Ben’s life. Hence the name of the movie Stepmom.

—————————————————————————————————–

Isabel: You know, I never wanted to be a mom. Sharing it with you… that’s one thing. It’s another to be looking over my shoulder for the next twenty years, knowing someone else would have done it better… someone else would have done it right.

Jackie: What do you have that I don’t?

Isabel: You’re Mother Earth, incarnate.

Jackie: You’re… hip, and fresh.

Isabel: You ride with Anna.

Jackie: You’ll learn.

Isabel: You know every story, every wound, every memory. Their whole life’s happiness is wrapped up in you… every single second. Don’t you get it? Look down the road to her wedding. I’m in a room alone with her, fixing her veil, fluffing her dress, telling her no woman has ever looked so beautiful. And my fear is she’ll be thinking, “I wish my mom was here.”

Jackie: And mine is… she won’t.

These are real women as real as any movie character I have seen till date.They could be you or me or any other woman we know. And these are the women Isabel and Jackie, either of whom I wouldn’t mind having in my life if I were a guy.

Do watch the movie if you haven’t already.

6.Audrey Hepburn

Don’t ask why or you must be blind I will assume ๐Ÿ˜€

Besides the fact that I love her in the movies Roman Holiday *sigh* , War and Peace, Breakfast at Tiffany’s ,ย  Sabrina, My Fair ladyย  and many more ..I also like her for all the work she did for UNICEF as a result of her traumatic past (something I came to know of only last year.)

7.Waheeda Rehman

Guru Dutt’s muse

Her grace and poise….the way she has aged so gracefully…

Which guy wouldn’t want a soul mate like this? ๐Ÿ™‚ She carries herself proudly and is doing movies even now albeit very selectively. Just watching her in a movie (remember RDB and Dilli6? She ย  makes the movieย  worth it for me even at this age. She brings a kind of realism to her role. )

Listen to these songs .They will mesmerize you.

Aaj phir jeene ki tamanna hai

Ye nayan dare dare

WaheedaRehmanM_Id_76057_Waheeda_Rehman

8.Gayatri Devi

A beautiful lady . The poise. The regal bearing. The charm and the grace. Its not just the fact that she was and is beautiful. No. Its more than that. Its the fact that she carries herself withย  elan and a poise that she seems to have been born with.

gdbss31RajMataGayatriDevi

9.Ingrid Bergman

Because she just was. Not beautiful in the conventional Hollywood sense. But nevertheless had this girl next door look. Because I loved her in Casablanca and Anastasia. And because she stood tall and proud even when there were threats against her life and she was banned from entering USA.

ingrid bergmaningrid21

10.Grace Kelly

*sigh*

Because every time I hear the romantic story I simply sigh. How I wish that it was a happy ending. A girl who became a princess. *sigh* And had a sad end to the fairy tale and a tragic end to her life.

Her beauty is ethereal.

grace10Grace-Kelly-Bride-790440

11. Hillary Clinton

hillaryclinton

Because she knows her own mind.

Because she doesn’t live her life according to the whims of others.

Because she comes across as a strong woman.

Because the choice was always hers, never his.

Because she decided to forgive but not forget and yes there ISย ย  a difference between the two.

Because she gave damn tough competition to the best in the field.

Because she has tried out so many roles in life and is all the more stronger for it.

I realize that she is not exactly crush worthy material for guys (or the ones I know that is ). But Iย  certainly admire herย  ๐Ÿ™‚

How many of us are guilty of slotting women into categories just because she looks capable, knows her own mindย  and acts tough?

12. Ah! Who are these women? You all know them ๐Ÿ™‚

ritusolsihmushusshailpic

( L-R )

Ritu, Solilo, IHM, Ushus and Shail

Ushus

Solilo

IHM

Ritu

Shail

Why these women? These five ladies to be precise?

Its simple really.These are the ladies who are my favorite here. I have known Solilo, Ushus and IHM almost since I first started blogging. And what a wonderful journey it has been ๐Ÿ™‚

A group blog,ย  experiences shared, laughing over stupid things and gentle guidance. This is my charmed circle and I wouldn’t exchange it for the world.

Love you three and wouldn’t change a thing! ๐Ÿ™‚

Muah! ๐Ÿ™‚

We don’t always agree on everything. We debate, we discuss..we know we are not right but neither are we wrong. We four just have different ways of looking at things. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ritu who is a kickass blogger and one whose sense of humour simply rocks!(Maxine could learn a thing or two from you too you know ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Same is the case with Shail who is more gen X than many gen Xers I know ๐Ÿ˜€ (Her attitude shines through in her words ๐Ÿ˜€ )

What is common between all these 5ย  ladies?

They are able to connect effortlessly with the new generation. In Solilo’s case, she IS the new generation. ๐Ÿ˜€

They move with the times.

Their sense of humour is awesome ๐Ÿ˜€

They are not petty . Have never been.

They dont preach. If you get it fine.Good for you. Otherwise they wont ram ideas down your throat.

These are five women who have changed themselves with the changing times.

If anything they have taught me by example. And gently guided me at times when I was about to rant like a maniac. (thanks Ushus, Solilo and IHM ๐Ÿ™‚ )

They tell me how to handle things gracefully with minimum fuss. How not to get agitated (And yeah I do . A lot ๐Ÿ˜€ )

These ladies know theirย  own mind but never have I seen them getting into useless arguments orย  petty fights.

But most of all for a girl who is still trying to struggle to find where she stands in life these ladies have treated me like an equal and with gentleness (only Ushus, Solilo and IHM know of some foot in the mouth moments or the ones that were about to become one ๐Ÿ˜€ )

They never treat me like a ‘kid ‘ ๐Ÿ˜‰

They are patient when I falter, calm when I am about to rave like a fool.

They talk to me about thingsย  when they think I have faltered. And for that I am grateful (thanks IHM ) For all the love and support thank you (Ushus and Solilo )

These areย  the ladies I like here ๐Ÿ™‚

To be completely honest it was damn tough to think like a guy. Try as I might I couldnt bring myself to think like that coz I love being born as a woman too much ๐Ÿ™‚

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

-Maya Angelou

Now tell me how many ladies from the list did YOU like? ๐Ÿ˜€

———————————————————————————————————

    Ingrid Bergman!! Indi! Her entry into Rickโ€™s Cafรฉ, that play of shadow and light on her faceโ€ฆshe looked like she was crafted by God with great care! She was gorgeous, delicate, and a true true beauty!

    And solilo is my darling!!! Tho she recently said sheโ€™s adopting mandy instead of me!!!
    ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
    me- there! there!stop crying Crafty ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Solilo was only joking..hai na Solilo? ๐Ÿ˜€

    me- thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
    yeah Angelina and KEira ๐Ÿ™‚

    Welcome here Anish ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. June 10, 2009 5:22 pm

    Amazing List!! I think you had shot straight from a guy’s heart.

    Drew Barrymore is so so cute..and rightly pointed out by Crafty, she looked amazingly beautiful in 50 First Dates.
    I go mad when I see Julia Roberts..and I hve never seen a woman as beautiful as her in the movie “Pretty Woman”.
    Sandra Bullock..oh the list is endless…I can go on and on.
    me- thanks ๐Ÿ˜€
    yeah all of them are darn cute ๐Ÿ˜€ you go mad when yous ee Julia? ๐Ÿ˜†
    kidding!

    Good pick esp Hillary Clinton, really a fighter. And yes ofcourse, yours close friends..I mean the way you have expressed your fondness towards them, I have every reason to agree with you that they had to be part of this list.

    Charming you are Indyeah ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
    do go over to their blogs and you will see why I love them and included them here ๐Ÿ™‚
    modesty is not my er strong point so I will take all the praise that comes my way ๐Ÿ˜€
    but seriously thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. June 10, 2009 6:52 pm

    “Had I done this tag imagining myself as a guy? OR had I done it as a woman ?” . Ahem . What shall I say ? ๐Ÿ˜€
    me- ๐Ÿ˜€ I think I was somewhere in between ๐Ÿ˜€
    (err not like Vimmuu though)

    15 women ! Impressive . And the way you have expressed yourself, you have made it all very platonic . That is cheating ! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    me- cheating? ๐Ÿ™„
    which word is this?have heard it for the first time ๐Ÿ˜€
    15 women and platonic love ๐Ÿ˜€ how much more clear can I be? ๐Ÿ˜€

    But very Indyeah-esque . Bright , bubbly , spirited and kickass ( I see that you have started using this phrase frequently) .
    me- thank you thank you ๐Ÿ˜€
    and thank you too for the awesome word! ๐Ÿ˜€
    kickass! I love how easily it rolls off my tongue ๐Ÿ˜€

    Lady , you infect everything with your indefatigable spirit ( I assume your spirit is indefatigable , that is what it seems like to me . ๐Ÿ™‚ ) . And when I compile a list of awesome woman I like , your name is going to be on that list .

    me- awww..you made me all senti friend ๐Ÿ™‚
    thank you ..coz you are always but always so generous with your words here ๐Ÿ™‚

    And where do you come up with these movies ? I am still grateful for the gift of Die Welle .
    me- arre what grateful? ๐Ÿ˜›
    you love movies …so do I ..so we share the names of the movies we love ๐Ÿ™‚
    trust me I am not a movie buff ..ppl around me are..so I get dragged to see movies all the time ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. June 10, 2009 7:16 pm

    Thats such a fantastically done tag ๐Ÿ˜€

    And u know what??? Ur list features some of my favorite ladies like, Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore (I find her very cute n contemporary), Sandra Bullock, Waheeda Rehman & Gayatri Devi.
    me-thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am grinning ๐Ÿ˜€
    good!! moi loves the fact that so many names are similar for both of us ๐Ÿ™‚

    I specially liked the ode to the blogger friends ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    BTW do u know Step Mom is being revisited by K Jo with Kajol n Kareena in lead ๐Ÿ˜€
    me- hai ram!! I know ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I think he will murder it! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  16. June 10, 2009 7:19 pm

    Phew!That was marvellous!I loved your list,each and everyone of the ladies.Oh yes Drew Barrymore is a cutie!
    me- thanks Deeps ๐Ÿ™‚
    Drew Barrymore is the only gal for whom I have abs no probs in saying that she is darn cute! ๐Ÿ˜€

    You’ve no idea how much I cried when I saw Stepmom the first time.And its been the same every time I’ve watched after that.I love Julia Roberts even otherwise.But in this movie she held her own in front of a stalwart like Susan Sarandon.And that conversation-its one of my favourite scenes too.
    me- the movie is beautiful!! no oethr word for it! the conversation is poignant and very real..
    Gayatri Devi,needless to say is a timeless beauty.So is Audrey Hepburn.Unfortunately I’ve never seen a single movie of hers*yep!I saw your jaws dropping*.
    me- Do see some of her movies ..:) I am sure you will love them ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love Catherine Zeta Jones too.She has this suaveness about her that makes her stand out!
    me- absolutely..she has this something..

    And finally about the 5 mentioned in the last-I’m an ardent admirer of four of them,Ushus,Solilo,Shail&IHM.I’m yet to read Ritu’s.*Deeps hides in shame*Will visit her soon.
    me- arre why shame?

    do visit her when you get time ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love all the ladies too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks so much for tagging me!will do it for sure:))

    Hugsss!!
    me- looking forward to your tag:)

  24. June 10, 2009 9:12 pm

    What a lovely post, Indy! I simply adore Audrey hepburn and Ingrid bergman – I had as much a crush on them as I had on Gregory peck or Cary Grant :). And I think Waheeda Rehman is one of the most elegant ladies ever – they really don’t make them that way anymore. I also used to admire Hilary Clinton but the fact that she chose to overlook her husband’s affairs just so she could have a shot at becoming president lessened my respect somewhat ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    me- I love CAry Grant and Gregory PEck too ! (also Paul newman *sigh* )
    Waheeda Rehman is truly one of a kind ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hillary yes..I have no clue why she took certain decisions in her personal life..but she does come across as very ambitious and very politically suave and thats why I like her..plus she ‘s any day better than that creep of a husband na?
    I liked the fact that she didnt cry or rant (atleast in public) and was dignified and also didnt play the abla naari card..

    Thanks for tagging me – will do it soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- will be waiting ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. June 10, 2009 9:29 pm

    Most of them are my favorites too ..
    Drew Barrymore can watch her anytime
    Catherine Zeta Jones – anything by her
    Sandra Bullock — a bit selective
    Julia Roberts — again anything by her specially Erin Brockovich & Notting Hill
    me- wow!that IS some list and some way that you have describes your fav women ๐Ÿ™‚
    Ingrid Bergman — i watch Casablanca everytime i find it .. for me thats the ultimate love story .. but then and Casablanca is Casablanca because of what Humphrey Bogart did in that ..

    me- yay!another fan! ๐Ÿ™‚
    ultimate love story..yes *sigh* it SO is ๐Ÿ™‚

    Waheda Rahman — yes she has grown so gracefully and brings life to everything that she does .. for me the scene in RDB when she gets the news of her son and subsequent scenes … her opening the trunk .. giving the diary to Soha .. the pain & silence on that face .. thats subtle .. sublime and only Waheda could have done that .. Delhi 6 a Granny trying to make sense with her old believes and customs and the new age .. everytime i see her i remember my ‘dadi’
    me- you have described her so beautifully! exactly my thoughts..this is how I see her too ๐Ÿ™‚
    liek a fond grandma these days ๐Ÿ™‚ a daadi ๐Ÿ™‚
    and her innocence in her youth was so captivating ๐Ÿ™‚

    I never knew that Sabrina was a B&W movie as well as i have seen only only which had Harrison Ford in it.
    me- yes the B&W is the original one ๐Ÿ™‚ its cute do watch it ๐Ÿ™‚
    I loved the ford one too ๐Ÿ˜€

    There could be few more of them like
    Sharon Stone
    Jane Fonda (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Fonda)
    Madhubala ofcourse she has to be there in any such list
    Renรฉe Zellweger — there is a moment in the movie Jerry Maguire the airport scene .. where he face is on full screen with that typical goofy-lost smile of her.. every time i watch the movie to get to that scene .. Her portrayal of a dotting wife of 1930s is awesome in Cindrella Man
    me- awesome choices ๐Ÿ™‚
    except for Renee (whom I liked ONLY in Jerry Macguire)the rest are my choices too ๐Ÿ˜€ specially MAdhubaala ๐Ÿ™‚
    *sigh* but I would have been strangled if I had increased the tag any further ๐Ÿ˜€

    unfortunately i had not heard of Grace Kelly and have not really seen any movie by Audrey Hepburn

    me- do see their movies ..you will LOVE them ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love all the women on your list! and i agree with them as well! ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The cartoon is so true… funny, sad but true.
    me- hai na? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    The poem, describes us so well… ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- yeah MAya Angelou writes BEAUTIFULLY! have you read her other works? awesome is the word ๐Ÿ™‚

    And of course, Step Mom – I have watched this movie countless number of times and the horse riding scene with her daughter always makes me cry…

    me- yeah me too ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    it is such a heartwarming and touching movie

    me-:P ๐Ÿ˜›

    I have named only err 12 ๐Ÿ˜€
    onyl twice err okay so more than twice the number 5 ๐Ÿ˜›

    Drew Barrymore, Catherine, and to an extent Sandra, thats it for me from this list. Probably my dad or granddad would have had a crush on Waheeda, Gayathri and the rest of the oldies ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    me- haw!!oldies?
    ๐Ÿ˜›
    some beauties are evergreen ๐Ÿ˜€ and beauty is like wine..gets better with age ๐Ÿ˜€

    Am I supposed to say something nice at the end of my comment??? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    me- nah!
    not expected ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›
    atleast I got you into the habit of leaving long comments(long by your standards that is)

    Abhi, I was going to scream unfairness seeing how you stretched the tag but then left that thought after seeing No: 12. Stretch all you want if moi is going to be in that list. (Modesty be damned) ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†
    me- LOL!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    yeah good you saw no12 ๐Ÿ˜›
    LOL@modesty be damned!

    From the list, I love

    Drew Barrymore: for being healthy and not falling for the stick thin figure many others female actors strive to work for. She is what she is. Chubby and cute, a lot like India version of Preity Zinta.
    me-yep!!exactly my thoughts! ๐Ÿ™‚ she is not anorexic ๐Ÿ™‚

    Catherine Zeta Jones: If I stretched my list then she would have DEFINITELY featured in it. Her husband is already my favorite. This woman is everything a woman should be.
    me- everything a woman should be! ๐Ÿ™‚ yeah!

    Sandra Bullock: You know what when I met your jiju, his favorite actor was Sandra Bullock. I know a lot of men who love her simply because she is a woman of substance. Yes! There are men who use brains too and they are abundant because I was surprised myself when I found a lot of men listing Sandra as one of their favorite actors.
    me- yippee!!affirmation ๐Ÿ˜€

    its good to knwo that guys like her too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Susan Sarandon: Another lady I admire. Hmmโ€ฆ.not a fan of Julia Roberts but I love her smile and persona.
    me- SUsan Sarandn toh I admire a lot ๐Ÿ™‚
    and yeah Julia only in some movies ๐Ÿ™‚

    You know Karan Johar is going to murder Stepmom by Bollywoodizing it with Kajol and Kareena.
    me- exactly!I am damn sure he will spoil it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Audrey Hepburn: I seriously should have put her along with Gayatri Devi and Jackie O in my list. This woman is epitome of beauty and fashion. A true fashionista and a charmer. I have watched almost all her movies.
    me- yeah a charmer through and through ๐Ÿ™‚ epitome of beauty!how true!

    Waheeda Rehman: She is your jijuโ€™s favorite and if he ever makes a list then Waheeda would feature first. In his words, there never was or never will be a woman of Waheedaโ€™s aura, grace and charisma in Bollywood.
    me- yay!! ๐Ÿ˜€ he has good taste ๐Ÿ˜€
    he found you didnt he? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I agree wtih all his words for Waheeda Rehman ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gayatri Devi: Of course was there in my list.
    me- ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ingrid Bergman: Another woman of substance.
    me- yep! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Grace Kelly: Ethereal is the word.

    Hillary Clinton: I absolutely LOVE you for this. She is someone I admire for putting up a fight in this manโ€™s world and being a true lady. I would prefer her any day over the Michelle Obamas of the world.
    me- you too?
    I love her grit and determination ๐Ÿ™‚ Eaxctly!the way she held up and still holds her own …she has my respect for that ๐Ÿ™‚

    The last list:

    What can I say? I am honored, humbled and almost emotional. ๐Ÿ™‚
    me-aww(((hugs))had to put my fav ladies here ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for putting me in the list along with my favorite women. If I had a list of 5 women then Ritu, Shail, Ushus and IHM would DEFINITELY be in it. They are the women who change with time, they never preach and they stand by what they believe in.
    me-
    yippee! ๐Ÿ˜€
    They are the women who change with time, they never preach and they stand by what they believe in.
    absolutely!!
    and add your name too as one among them ๐Ÿ˜€
    ((((Hugs))) not saying this coz you are a cherished friend but coz this is how I see all five of you ๐Ÿ™‚
    you are a treasure ๐Ÿ™‚

    So hereโ€™s to Ushus, Shail, IHM and Ritu. Cheers ladies! I am just honored to be in the list.
    me- Cheers! here’s to all of you! :))
    (((Hugs))))

    Your reasons for liking Drew Barrymore, Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon are not the reasons guys like women…I really don’t know if many men lust after Drew, Sandra and Julia – at least I don’t know of any…I know quite a few men who find intelligent actresses like Susan Sarandon and Glen Close sexy…
    me- I know ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I couldnt think like a guy at all ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    (thank god! ๐Ÿ˜€ )
    but guys do like these actresses Sraboney ๐Ÿ˜€
    specially Drew barrymore and Julia ๐Ÿ˜€

    I don’t think ANY man lusts after Hilary Clinton…She’s too intelligent and domineering for their liking…
    me- yep! I agree ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now Catherine Zeta-Jones is a woman men drool over…She’s soft, curvy, beautiful, sexy and rich – everything a man wants…I hate her because she’s married to Michael Douglas – now that is a man worthy of my drool!!!
    me- yeah! Catherine is all woman ๐Ÿ˜€
    you hate her? ๐Ÿ˜†

    Very nicely done tag. I admire Waheeda R and Gayatri Devi. I think they are such classical beauties. Ingrid,Grace and Audrey too.
    And most of all I too love being a woman.
    me- thanks Chrysalis ๐Ÿ™‚
    yes they are timeless beauties na? ๐Ÿ™‚
    being a woman is being blessed I think …or so it is for us who have been privileged enough to be proud of our gender and have never feel ashamed or guilty

  43. June 11, 2009 10:18 am

    Like your posts, your list is also long! Where is the alert?
    me- lol!
    everyone is of the opinion that I should put an alert when I write a short post or they just might die of shock ๐Ÿ˜€

    I tend to agree with Sraboney. I think you have thought like a woman only. No wonder you too have missed out Marylin Monroe, whose magic continues unabated even till now. Another name I thought would figure here, since you were thinking like a woman, was that of Indira Gandhi. I understand that Mayawati will not figure in any straight list, but Indira has not figured anywhere…I can’t figure that out.
    me- *sigh* yes wasnt able to think like a man at all ๐Ÿ™‚
    oh yes! Marylin Monroe ! ๐Ÿ˜€ How could I forget her? Indira Gandhi not so much ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I dont like her at all ….I dont think many women like her as such..

    Out of your list, Mrs Douglas and Waheeda are indeed women who will appeal to a lot of men. Hillary? Ask Bill and Monica!
    me- Mrs Douglas ๐Ÿ˜€
    first time I have heard of her being described so ๐Ÿ˜€

    Waheeda Rehman is a classical beauty ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hillary is here only coz she is wayy above creeps like Bill and Monika ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. June 11, 2009 11:28 am

    Wow, what a list…Indyeah! I can understand why you got so emotional about Stepmom, it is a lovely movie. How I loved it…
    And all the women, specially those I know over the blogging sphere, truly, wonderful women…i WANT TO know them more and understand them like you do…You are lucky, Indyeah! Lov u…loved the post!
    me- thanks Sindhu ๐Ÿ™‚
    STepmom is a very special movie for sure ๐Ÿ™‚
    thank you once again Sindhu ๐Ÿ™‚
    ((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))please take up the tag ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. June 11, 2009 11:42 am

    WOWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! What a list! We already agree on so much, and now I see we have very similar ‘tastes’ in women too!! ;D
    me- ๐Ÿ˜€ I am amazed to know that ๐Ÿ˜€
    similar tastes in women too ๐Ÿ˜†
    tell me that doesn’t sound as bad as it does ๐Ÿ˜€

    Another reason why I’m jumping here is because of the passage you chose to quote from the movie ‘Stepmom’…one of my enduring favourites. It was the basis of an entire Mother’s Day article I had written over a year ago. I think I’ll put it up on my blog, then I’ll send you the link ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- you did? ๐Ÿ™‚
    please do send me the link ๐Ÿ™‚ would LOVE to read it:)

    Great list. And thanks for tagging me, I will take this up! ๐Ÿ™‚
    me-thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
    will be looking forward to yours ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. June 11, 2009 11:59 am

    Hey is there anything left for me to say..?
    me- ๐Ÿ˜€

    hope u r fine.. ๐Ÿ™‚
    me-better than before but still down with fever ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a list.. you ‘Indyeah-fied’ the tag and stretched it too.. ๐Ÿ˜€

    a nice mix of women..
    me-thanks ๐Ÿ˜€ Indyeah-fied? I Love the word ๐Ÿ˜€

    ‘Stepmom’ being the highlight of the post. i loved the movie and could watch it any more number of times. when i was doing the tag i too thought of adding Julia but as she was already taken i dropped the idea.
    me- that is some movie na? ๐Ÿ™‚ I too love it…its amazing to see how it has touched so many of us ๐Ÿ™‚

    rest of them too are great especially the fellow bloggers…. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€
    me- thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

    me-LOL@tweaked ๐Ÿ˜€

    the last five are special na? specially the ones I have known since what seems like forever ๐Ÿ™‚

    lovely,lovely post!!! Had an awesome time going through this one. Loved all the names(except Sandra Bullock and DRew Barrymore). And heyy, the last line in the dialogue between Jackie and Isabel is something I have always pondered about. The way Jackie says “And mine is..she wont.” I loved the movie. I must have watched it some 50 million times and I`ve still not got quite enough! ๐Ÿ™‚

  67. June 15, 2009 8:47 pm

    Yes, I loved the movie ‘step mom’ very much and remember this conversation too. I like them bothe, Susan and Julia.

    Like Sandra Bullock too.
    me- yippee!you like Sandra ๐Ÿ™‚
    yep!Stepmom is good ๐Ÿ™‚

    We watched ‘Roman Holiday’ just last week – must be 100th time. We love Audrey.
    me- awww…you too?:) I LOVE that movie ๐Ÿ™‚

    Waheeda – the name reminds me of Guru dutt movies. She was the best in them.
    me- yes she is so magical in his movies na? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gayatri Devi – I have read her biography. She is a strong woman. She was the third wife or something, but always carried herself with dignity all the time.
    me- yes her dignirty stands out in a crowd of beauties:)

    I remember the beautiful Ingrid in ‘Casablanca’. Don’t know much about her.
    me- she was a mystery for most of her life..

    Hillary – 50/50. She is capable, bold. But she recommended aid to Pakistan.
    me- yes she did ๐Ÿ™‚ she took the decision that she thought was best for her country just as we would do for ours:) its as a woman that I like her grit ๐Ÿ™‚

    The last line is THE BEST, Indyeah I too am getting influenced by you ladies, you know.
    me-thanks Sandhya:) you are a sweetheart
    ((hugs))))

    Just add Revathi, Surekha Sikri, Rekha, Smitha patil, Nutan, Jyothika….my tag is done, Indyeah!!

    me- I know Revathi, RekhamSmita, Nutan in the list ..dont knwo about the others ๐Ÿ™‚
    I like these women:)

    • June 16, 2009 1:03 pm

      Surekha Sikri is acting as mom and daadi nowadays. She doesn’t look beautiful but her acting is superb. She acted in ‘Mammo’ (superb acting by her and Fareeda Jalal), Zubeida (Karishma’s mother) and in some other movies. Now she is in my favorite serial, the only serial I watch, ‘Baalika vadhu’. She is doing very well in that. Jyothika acted in some, not very famous Hindi movies, she like Simran, is famous here, in Tamil movies. She is a bubbly actress but in a Tamil movie ‘Mozhi’, her acting was very good.

      me-oh that actress?I like her too:) and yes Superb is the right word for her acting:) will find out more about Jyothika and Simran :))

      And thanks again for reminding me of the good movies and actors – they call actresses as actors, nowadays!
      me- ๐Ÿ™‚ you are most welcome ๐Ÿ™‚
      yes the earlier ones were something else..
      ((((hugs)))))

  68. June 15, 2009 8:53 pm

    Please please, forget my bungling, Indyeah!!! not IHM. I wrote a comment in her blog just a few minutes back! Sorry, sorry, sorry!!! Feel very bad.

  74. Just call me 'A' permalink
    June 18, 2009 4:51 am

    great list you have there…I like Audrey Hepburn, Waheeda Rehman and Julia Roberts, Solilo and IHM. I have not read the other 3 ladies and maybe this is a good time to start….and this is also a good time to make coming here a routine :). somehow I don’t like Hilary Clinton. I admire her for being where she is in her career and making a name for herself in politics and not just a shadow to her better half..but somehow i’ve never like her at face value only.
    me- welcome here A ๐Ÿ™‚
    Do visit the other three bloggers as well
    Solilo and IHM you already know ๐Ÿ™‚ thats great! ๐Ÿ˜€ will look forward to seeing you here more often ๐Ÿ™‚
    yeah Hillary Clinton is not very well liked ๐Ÿ™‚ but then we are also taking the other women at face value na? ๐Ÿ™‚ ..I think its her hard -as -nails personality that doesnt appeal to many me included..I do like some aspects of her too:)

    it is great to see you here ๐Ÿ™‚

  75. June 18, 2009 8:35 am

    wow ! thats a sooper list .. i like most of the women .. my favs r ingrid ,grace kelly, waheeda rehman, audrey hepburn and catherine zeta jones .. i am not a great fan of sandra bullocks.. nice blog u have here .. !
    me- thanks Bedazzled ๐Ÿ™‚ welcome here ๐Ÿ™‚
    your fav’s are mine too ๐Ÿ˜€
    I like Sandra Bullock’s character in the movie miss Congeniality and a few others ๐Ÿ™‚
    thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ will look forward to seeing you more often ๐Ÿ™‚

  76. June 18, 2009 10:11 am

    OMG (I know I am repeating myself, but cannot help going omg) you have TAGGED me!! :O *moi falls with a thud back to terra firma*
    me- I am smiling after reading your comments ๐Ÿ˜€
    Hmmm… I see someof my favs up there in your list, Waheeda Rehman being one of them. But a switcheroo tag?? This is going to be TOUGH! Not for the usual reasons though. I just am not the sort to go ga-ga over anyone male or female :-))))) Now if it were a tree or a sunset or a cloud or the sea or a flower or a stream….. *goes all dreamy eyed*
    me- ah!I knew it!!

    not the usual hum drum switcheroo for you eh?:D a poetic soul requires all the inspiration and gets it from nature ๐Ÿ™‚
    I LOVE waheeda Rehman too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, let me see what I can comeup with. But girl, you will have a long wait. Sigh! There are two tags pending since long and impatient souls waiting impatiently of course for me to complete them. Sigh, sigh and sigh.
    And once again… hey it is ME up there!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    me- will wait for as long as it takes ๐Ÿ˜€

    yeah that IS you up there ๐Ÿ˜€
