Rahul and I

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa ........ once my favorite program on television. It was the only show that actually showcased the depth of musical talent present in India......in its last edition the depth of talent was represented by the inflated egos of 5 music directors of bollywood(Jatin Lalit became 2 from 1 when they had a divorce). I have nothing against the music directors themselves.... its just that i feel that i am better than all of them put together.

Yes....its true, I am a musical genius.

*flashback - age 2*

"chocolateeeeeeeeeee......waaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh"
Mom:"Hear that???? he is perfectly in sruti......he is going to become a great musician"
Dad :"Yes....shall I teach him aaditalam on his thigh??????"

*age 5*

"saregamapadhanisaaaaaaa"
"he is highly talented, has discovered totally new swarasthanams...... he will be a great musician, changing the face of music." : Music teacher, who will definately wish to remain anonymous if she still needs a career

*age 9*

"Balikudeeerangaleeeeeee....."
"what a voice he has" who else but my mom....... doesnt she love me or no??????


*age 14*

"Balikudeeerangaleeeeeee....."
"Y dont you try for All India Radio Rahul????" a 'former' friend, "at least then we can switch the radio off!!!!!!!!!"


*age 16*

"Balikudeeerangaleeeeeee......"
-Slap.......whack-(Courtesy ABVP, Part of RSS.... the above is a famous communist drama anthem)


*age 19*

Part of a band in college...... Lead vocals...(No commie rock songs........no more slaps)
First jig, a police association annual celebration.
"We will shock the audience...... Lets start of with 'Smoke on the Water' " - The lead singer

"Jhang jhang jhang, jhang jhang jhajhang, jhang jhang jhang jhang jhang" (One of the greatest guitar intro's ever..........well, u have to hear it not read it for the right effect)

The lead singer takes a look at the SHOCKED audience and goes into a frenzy of head banging.

The drums join in and he grabs the mike to 'sing' the lyrics...."we all came down to montreal......."

Its a world record........................ About 300 people left the auditorium in anout 30 seconds.......leaving behind the said bands family and friends.
(Lucky v didnt get thrown in Jail....... my head banging probably frightened them off)


*age 28*

"I am better than all of the music directors"

*end flashback*

Yes..........Its true, I am a musical genius.
