Welcome to Blog-O-Wood

Aamir started it… Big B latched on to it … RGV remade it and now K Jo embellished it.
Yes ! it is the big bad world of blog-o-wood where reputation is either made or destroyed in a matter of posts and the blog hopping junta decides if the entry was eye-balls vasool or not.

As if the current plight of mediocre bloggers like yours truly who vie with the rest of the lot for a few seconds of ‘your quality time’ the entry of super star bloggers makes this jog in bloggers park a truly herculean task. We have to goad/plead/threaten/Kidnap/Spam people to get to read our posts/rants and comment on them while people like K Jo who just happens to post his first entry today has already 100+ comments.

No I am not lashing out at those who don’t read my blog or at the celebrities who are jumping on to the bandwagon. Please we could do with many more celebrity bloggers.

For instance I would like to know what kareena had for breakfast or how Rakhi feels about her surroundings and hear from big producers and directors on their views about the casting couch etc. Bloggers in India have not been able to influence the mainstream media the way they have been able to do in the USA. So a little bit of glamor to the Indie blogging sphere would only do it good. Like earlier Indian womens tennis was something you knew about in passing..enter Sania Mirza…and now that’s all we talk about.

Aishwarya Rai-Bacchan’s comment on Ramu’s blog… Aamir and Sharukh : the dog connection… these are headlines/breaking news! Gone are the days when a blog was like a personal thing. With the present celeb frenzy it feeds tabloids and gossip columns the spicy tidbits they are looking for.

I would also like to see some non-Bollywood blogs (but celebrities nonetheless) like the pani-puri standwala near my apartment who serves hundreds of people every day; The beggar at Panjugutta junction who seems like a connoisseur of life. These would also be interesting perspectives, No ?

I am reminded of a dialog from Sarkar Raj that people in India just want entertainment. How true. We like the political dramas, gossip, the k- serials and the k-movies. We just want to be entertained at all times obvious to the discomfort that we cause to others.

Like what’s with all those people who talk loudly on cell phones, spit n piss in public places, answer calls in cinema theaters, pass rude n lewd comments, lech at women? don’t they know the discomfort they cause to others? Why doesn’t anyone do anything ? No, we want to be entertained.

I like to see that look of ‘oh ! damn’ in the eyes of the other person when I rush to slam my bum into a just vacated seat in a bus; the same seat for which the other dude been waiting for, to be vacant.

Russell Peters jokes : ” Terrorists hate Americans; Indians hate each other.”

How true.

So come on Bollywood get cracking. Salman paints kaathe how about a website of his paintings? Come on Saif you can talk about how to serenade firang women and Pritham could pen an original line about creativity in music .

If you don’t know nuts about blogging platforms don’t worry, there are n web 2.0 wannabe’s out there are willing to pay you good money to use their platform for your blog.

Gentlemen and women start your typing. It is show time folks!

Everyone must have a blog, and regardless of it’s popularity, one’s blog is one’s space on the world web.Good write-up.

I love your blog,while offering a realistic view about several aspects of life,some seemingly trivial everyday things too,it is laced with humour and an extremely engaging writing style .Like someone else mentioned,I would read your blog anyday rather than reading Aishwarya Rai defending the romance in Sarkar Raj(I mean does it even make sense??)So,keep blogging for your audience Sid !!Padma
