18.11.2007 Bollywood Experience

Just came back from our first Bollywood experience. And I have to admit I had several goose flesh. 100% kitsch, a beautiful actress and nice dance moves! The cinema was huge, completely booked out and therefore very crowded. 8 oversized fans provided a gentle chilly breeze (foreshadowing, I brought a huge dupatta to wrap myself in). The racket started with the national anthem. Everybody stood up. While singing, the Indian flag was shown on the movie screen. After an astonishing punctual start, scenes with most popular actors (e.g. Khan) were accompanied with enthusiastic shouts, screams, applause.
After one hour there was a short brake. Now I have to criticize one indian custom:
Why didnt they adopt the straight accurate queueing from the English? My attempt to buy popcorn was quite unsuccesful until Meenaksi pushed me to the front of the bulk of greedy jostling Indians, stepping on my feet. I definitively have to get used to it, otherwise it will probably cost me a lot of nerves in the following months in India.
Because the Rainbow guesthouse is booked out next days (our work was too good I assume;) we have to clear our rooms and therefore decided to go to Hyderabad instead of going to Bamhani. Our train leaves tomorrow at 4pm (hopefully it is delayed, otherwise we will reach Hyderabad around 5 or 6 am in the morning) we will be back on the 24th november, with some nice jewelery from the famous arabian bazar...


Kein Indienaufenthalt ohne Bollywood Kino! Heute wollen wir uns mit Meenakshi (Kollegin aus dem Buero) den neuesten Bollywood Kracher Om Shanti Om auf Hindi anschauen - vorausgesetzt wir bekommen noch Karten. Natuerlich mit Shah Rukh Khan in der Hauptrolle – die alte Rampensau! Das Spektakel wird voraussichtlich 3 Stunden dauern.... Es ist unglaublich, wie extrem die Bollywood Filme hier promotet werden. Wenn ich abends fernsehe kommt der Werbespot mind. 4-5 mal, scheinbar auf allen Kanaelen. Ich kann den Titeksong sogar schon mitsingen. Hilfe!

Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is undeniably integral to our lives in this day and age, and I can say with 99% certainty that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
