Is the World Still Beautiful?

Take That ,the boyish band and successful bands to emerge from UK, has come alive from the dead to revive their careers after lying on the deathbed. Though they didnt idle away their time by watching the grass grow, All Five of them tried hands at solo careers, and only Robbie Williams survived. Now, Take That minus the enfant terrible Robbie, are back after a long hiatus. They look old, washed up as if they were away from land for a considerable amount of time, Well aging effects everyone hard to believe even the celebrities for whom senescence is a disease and eeeeeeeks it cant happen to them after all they are demi gods, thanks to Botox.

Now when they decided to disband, definately the world was beautiful they had huge fan following, million dollar record deals and not to forget they were younger too. Now things have changed, they have become old and weary in search of phoenix like resurrection, Will the world be beautiful again for these 4 fellas? Maybe and maybe not, but judging by the reception their latest album has received things definately isnt looking anthing but beautiful ;). The album is NO 1 currently on UK charts and the first single is aptly named Patience, both for the fans and above all the remaining quartet of once famous Take that! Will Gary Barlow able to drum out the lyrics in flat 15 minutes for their famous song Back for good, again ? Probably yes, Who knows :)

Easy way out !

It has come to my notice that my blog has been going down the drain in past months, regretably and shamelessly I gotta inform that the slide continues. It has been a busy few months and hardly found time to update my blog with my valuable thoughts ;) so easy way out was to write either about entertainment or movies.

I have been in and out of my home from last few months, shuttling between Delhi and Bengalooru, before my previous visit it was still referred as Good old Bangalore, Now the ethnic consious people have decided that its time to bring back the Old Name to the place which has caught world attention, Land of Boiled beans is what is Bengalooru is!

This time I was put up in a Hotel far away from the City just to make sure that We dont waste time commuting, albeit I cribbed Why I am not put in the maddening City?, The reply from the Management was its time we started to cut costs . But In a way this turned out to be a blessing in disguise as we not only had our office at a stones throw but also didnt have to lose time travelling. Many associates of ours had descended from all over the world to attend the SAP TECHED, an annual event showcasing the best in the innovation in coding. I made sure that I stayed miles away from this event.
