    HItchu n my speciality – Monika n Ross Routine
    EOG’s Demo Dance
    Vimmuuu’s Danganakka Tribal Style (which EOG insists is a evolved form ๐Ÿ˜› )
    Ganpathy Visarjan style
    Anil Kapoor “My name is Lakhan” Style

    *dance is flowing from Crafty’s ears n Indy is running around for ear plugs*
    me- LOL!! so many dance forms? ๐Ÿ˜€
    that will be a sight to watch! ๐Ÿ˜€

    *she gives up and joins with her classical dance*

    • July 2, 2009 9:07 pm

      Hey crafty, danganakka is a very difficult dance……….

      check this video out, and see if you can dance like this guy:

      me- LOL!! OMG!! How is ANYONE able to dance like that?? ๐Ÿ˜€

      • craftyshines permalink
        July 3, 2009 1:06 pm


        EOG…this is NOT the danganakka we were talking of
        *looks at Indy for support*
        really! Vimmuuu taught us something else…as we practised it…it involved carrying a spear in one hand, painting ur face and hopping in circles around a bonfire….this is some other danganakka….
        me- yeah Crafty!!! exactly how I picture two mad fellas dancing! ๐Ÿ˜€

        er…but…why not? of course, i can dance like this also, don’t roll ur eyes EOG, wait…

        *EOG is standing with arms folded, waiting*


        *crafty flees and EOG finds only dust settling in place of her*

  24. July 3, 2009 5:19 am

    Heyyy, fabulous!! Completely agree with your views on freedom and what we as Indians need to change in ourselves. It is so often that I complain about the petty-mindedness of fellow Indians. Only too quick to point fingers. But when I sit down and think, I realize that pettiness begins in the mind, only to be translated into actions. Each one of us can work towards building a better nation, only when we try and be a better person ourselves!
    Fabulous read, Indyeah!! So proud of you,my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- ((((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))Piper ๐Ÿ™‚
    thank you for such amazing words dear friend ๐Ÿ™‚ they pep up one’s spirit so, so much ๐Ÿ™‚
    rightly said …we all can make our nation the way we dream it should actually be like

    Hey,read the second part and left a comment there. I couldnt have agreed with you more on all that you’ve said there.Let me just reiterate a bit
    me- I read it Deeps ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚ have to reply to all the comments there too ๐Ÿ™‚

    โ€œIndia is indeed a beautiful country. Itโ€™s her people that give her heartache at times.โ€

    so very true,Abhi.

    If only we realized this and tried to make a positive difference by way of our deeds,then our country will be so much more worthwhile to live in.Its in us to make that happen,isnt it,Abhi??
    me- absolutely Deeps! ๐Ÿ™‚
    and that is why we need to be so careful about what we say and what we do..specially around kids.,..
    having an open mind is so important so that we can unlearn lessons learnt due to our conditioning….

    BTW,thanks for sharing that snap with us….it feels nice to put a face to an amazing blogger such as you.

    me- thanks a lot Deeps ๐Ÿ™‚

    back to mention another of your brilliant quotes

    “I donโ€™t ever wish to see an India where we have a uniform language, a uniform dress, a uniform cuisine. It has become a clichรฉ I know, but unity in diversity is the only way India can work. This is the only way this country can survive and prosper. To even think of anything else would be folly. Like I said somewhere, India is in my blood. It has seeped in too deep for me to think about anything else or be anything else. Not region, cuisine or language per se but just India.”

    Classic,Abhi…your passion for your country and the fact that you so want her to prosper shines through your words.
    God bless ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- arre!Deeps you will make me blush now ! ๐Ÿ™‚
    ((((((((((((hugs)))))))))for being so generous and so very sweet ๐Ÿ™‚
    muah! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The ‘chalta hai’ attitude which you mentioned in the interview, is indeed our biggest vice as Indians, and we will have to accept that. If a lot of people accept that, we will be doing much better!

    me- hai na? ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    the chalta hai attitude in such huge dollops is exactly what our prob is ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    2nd part of the interview bhi padh liya hamne ๐Ÿ˜€
    me- aapne padh liya? ๐Ÿ˜€ hum khush huye ๐Ÿ˜›

    Agree with your comments that too much of freedom has sometimes according to me stalled whatever progress we as a country could have done. Anything we dont like or dont agree, we use violence to get our points across. Actually its also gross failure on the part of the law and order machinery. A few fellows sent behind bars for life would send a good message across.
    me-I so agree.. an example must be made out of a few people who indulge in such that otehrs will think twice!

  51. July 7, 2009 4:42 pm

    Cool cool cool ๐Ÿ™‚
    Now off I go to BlogAdda ๐Ÿ™‚

    As usual I am much like me :)…but I am late to comment and was not late to read the interview. Yay.
    me- thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really have nothing to say Abhi. But I will surely tell you what I did. I have this fablous group of frnds in office…and I keep bugging them on blogging.
    So it happened that we were relatively free in office and I called all of them (count 4), and showed them your blogspace. I showed them your interview, told them what an amazing blogger you are.

    And of course the closing line was ” Amrit is a fan of this blogger..and when Amrit is a fan that means this blog is worth it”. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€
    ** Woh kya hai na…thoda ishtyle bhi maarna padta hai na!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ **
    me- LOL!

    By the way…all of them went and bookmarked your link. I am yet to convince them to bookmark my link..which i get failed everytime..sniff..sniff!
    me- arre! so much praise! ๐Ÿ™‚
    let me be on the ground please ๐Ÿ™‚
    thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚

    You simply rock lady. Cheers!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    me- thanks a lot Amrit ๐Ÿ™‚

    sorry was a lil late… But awesome interview ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loved these lines…

    “When you share tears, laughter and plain nonsensical fun with friends whom you seem to have known forever.”….
    “I blog because its comforting to know that I am not alone in my fears and in my dreams. That there are others who share so many of the same with me.”

    “Night time is the most relaxing. Its almost a spiritual experience. The whole world is in a deep slumber and it seems as if you are the only human being in perhaps the entire world who is keeping vigil.

    Watching, waiting, thinkingโ€ฆ

    Night forces one to come face to face with thoughts . Thoughts that one had been running from in the light of day. “…
    – so totally agree with these thoughts on Night time…
    Now off to read part 1 of interview
    me- thanks a lot N ๐Ÿ™‚
    (((((((((hugs)))))))))How have you been? ๐Ÿ™‚
    its been a longtime ….god bless you and yours ๐Ÿ™‚

    I felt it before from your earlier picture and the now the new one in the interview page convinced me further. You look like Deepika Padukone. Has no one else ever told you before?
    me- ha!ha! ๐Ÿ˜€
    nah! I can assure you I dont look anything like Deepika at all ๐Ÿ™‚
    its the pic probably that seems to give that impression ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great interview btw ๐Ÿ™‚
    me- thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚
