The Debate

It's been a while since I have scribbled something in this space. Blame that on busy life in office and at home. Anyways,....

I am following up with Indian Idol 3 and as usual seem to enjoy every episode of it. Abhishek, Ankita and Amit are my favs. Dunno but I like live songs more than records played. They just seem to have different but lively music on the stage.

Did anyone follow Live US Presential CNN-Youtube debate today? That was just amazing and wow. A first of its kind. All the candidates really had to do thier homework since they were directly facing the audience from Internet. Talk of technology taking part in our real world. I wonder what it would be like to have this system in India.

I couldnt help notice headlines screaming Lindsay Lohan going back to jail after being caugth again DUI and in possession of drugs. Do I need to say more?

Almost end of July. Folks back at home in mumbai say there is no rains this month yet and are facing water scarcity. Situation is same here in parts of east coast of US where ban on watering lawns starts today. No rains here too. Scary ain't it?

what? water shortages in Mumbai... How bad is the situation... extremely bad or still under control..

Again? Does she never learn? Lindsay..lindsay...I guess she only went to rehab to gain better favor in the press....

Mann : There was one nice headline in msn yesterday - Jail may be the only way to save Lindsay.

I think she just lost her last chance to cleanup.

Diva : July is crucial month for monsoon rains and that has not happened this year. Water shortage is impending but not very bad as of now. I would say still under control. Hopefully we have rains soon.

I used to watch Aus Idol at the start...now I dun. Only cos I dun believe REAL musicians r born that way..from a votes-based TV show.

Linday Lohan...she looked like hell in that mug shot of her's. Does she think it's glamorous to go to jail?

Well, I live in Mumbai and we don't have any water shortage. Rains are there too.. only thing is.. for the last 2-3 days it hasn't rained the way it is famous for.

Mumbai Guy said...

Cuckoo : No water cuts yet but with lakes fast drying up, we are going to face it soon. Hopefully not.

And rains have just been drizzling this month. Not the real monsoon rains which fills up lakes and makes it feel like rainy season.

Keshi - I watch Idol shows for entertainment. And once in a while they do provide good ones like kelly clarkson. Music + glam. :)

I find it boring to just watch some singer perform on stage if he/she aint going to be entertaining.
