Over the last few days

June 26, 2007 at 4:06 am

Things have been going on in a hazy fashion. I don’t seem to have a grip on what is happening around me and worse, to me also. And this string of thoughts has stretched me quite a bit.

Suddenly, relationships seem shaky. The ones that I thought were unshakeable are now swaying to the winds of miscommunication. And when this happens, people around you seem to be diminishing and you are actually wondering if you made any mistake. And quite aptly I read one status message of one of my friends on GTalk which made me think. It was “Never apologize for expressing your feelings. Nobody apologizes for saying the truth”.

Rajni fever

Yes, you guessed it right. After Rajni mania, it ought to be fever. What else do you expect? There is some magic stuff that Rajni does that sweeps us off our feet!

Ok ok ok. Let us come to reality. Our trusted mechanic, a former mechanic of the Superstar, helped us get tickets to the second day night show at Baby Albert theatre in Egmore. So I actually got myself to watch Superstar earlier than I thought.

This is how the queues were. Let me also post this photograph here. Courtesy: The Hindu, 11th June 2007 Chennai edition.
Sivaji craze
My wife got up at 7.30AM to try for tickets at Sathyam. Only one ticket was available for Friday – first day first show and two tickets for Saturday first show. That’s all. By 2 PM yesterday, the earliest show that you could book a solitary ticket for was for Thursday morning show.

All other theatres first three days were completely booked by 11 AM. If rumours are to be believed they have all been booked by fans associations and corporates.

And mind you, it is being released in 18 theatres across the city.

I got myself three tickets for Monday night show at Mayajaal! Yipeeee! Yay! Yo hooo!!!!

  • I have Naresh Iyer‘s mobile number with me
  • Your turn now. Tell me which one you think is not true!

    We were planning a gala get-together within our first and closest circle of friends. It was also meant to be a celebration of a landmark in our relationship – the 10th year of our meeting. Few of us have become husbands and fathers while the rest are looking to enter this stage. The planning was going on with great pace and enthusiasm over emails because each of us is in a different corner of the World. Just then an email came that threw everyone keenly involved in the process into the thinking mode. It was always assumed that we were all still the same. It never occured to us that someone might have changed over these years.
