Reminscing

The advertisements being broadcasted on the Idiot Box these days make you bang your head on the TV until you become senseless enough to appreciate those stupid ads or until the ad disappears from the screen, which makes me wonder what happened to all the creative ad film makers which used to give us so many good ads in the past which have just disappeared. So i sat to compile the list of a few of my favourite ads which were ever telecasted on TV.

This list is by no means exhaustive because first of all this is a list of an individual and second, this is a list of a person, who had a night out today morning and then attended a few classes and then slept from 2:30 pm to 11:30 pm, so you can understand that my mental state is not the best now.. but i will try.

1) Fevicol Series :- There have been many ads in the series and each an example of innovation which has been rarely surpassed by others in the ad industry.

2) Dairy Milk :- The ad bein aired these days featuring Amitabh Bachhan looks shit to me but there have been good ads by Dairy Milk in the past, one of which featured a catchy song which ran in background whose wordings were ” Main Khush hun aaj khamakhaw…”
But the ad which i like the most is one in which a girl came dancing on the ground in a cricket match.. It is just a memory in my mind

3) Raymond :- There have been 3 ads by these guys which i can remember to be good.. Last spot i would keep the ad which featured quite a few cute pups along with a man dressed in Raymonds sutings. The remaining two ads which were a sequence, one featuring a class bidding a final goodbye to a teacher who taught them and the second part which came many years after the first one and which showed a few seconds of the first one in flashback,shws those young children all grown up and become “Complete Man” themselves, they see their teacher and the warmth shown by them wins you.. 🙂

4) Nescafe :- Even if the ad was not good sometimes the music was there to captivate your heart and your fantasies, such a good song… The only ad song which i can hum any time “Taste that gets you started up..
Taste that gets you going..
Nescafe”

5) Bajaj Boxer :- There was the ad of Bajaj Boxer which used to be telecast when the bike was launched for the first time tagging it as ” Unshakeable” which showed a guy going to meet his girlfriend after coming back from a war but reaching her house to find that she is married and has a child now :(… Thats what i can remember of it…

These are the only ones which are coming to my mind right now,so pardon me if i missed out a few good ones and comment telling about the ad, i will include it in the list if i also liked it.. 🙂 I know there are many which i just cant remember at this moment, but what to do, i am a human after all.

Song Of The Day:- There’s A Place by Beatles from Please Please Me
Starting of this song is just something out of this world. 🙂 Listen to the song for my sake if you haven’t…
There is no end to the musical genius of these guys, this is just so good.. 🙂 Wish they were still here, making more music enthralling us even more

PS1:- This post is to aplaud the good ad makers and show a _|_ to the ads being shown these days, for a few of these ads refer here
PS2:- Mid sems finished.. 🙂
PS3:- India fucking won a World Cup.. This month is golden for Indian Sports… First Football(Nehru Cup), then Hockey(Asian Champions) and then this.
PS4:- Rediscovered Stumbling after switching back to Firefox from Flock.. It just rocks
PS5:- BEATLES ROCKKKKK…… coz there is no one song which you can mark as your fav, before this song , i listened to the song Imagine by John Lennon 100 times on stretch and before that Seargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and there are 7 songs i have played >200 times and 5 >100 times in last 4 mnths since i started listening to them and many with play count >50 … 🙂
PS6:- Back after hibernation.. posting after a gap of 22 days.. maxm for me while living in collg…

Dreamland

Let me wander off into dreamland
Into the realms of wonder and plenty
With no footprints before me on time’s sand
A place with things to explore aplenty

Cool gale always blowing across my face
A calm and blue cloud cover saving me from sun’s wrath
Life always moving at a sluggish and comfortable pace
Seas churning out valuables along with their froth

A land where I live with the ones I love
With bridges built over the streams of misery
Blessing consistently being showered from above
Love abound in the hearts of people, no treachery

A land reminiscent of Gonzalo’s commonwealth
A place with the ideas of Utopia as its soul
Such a place where mercy is the real wealth
People always thinking of society as a whole

Wish to see my dreams realised
A land be built with happiness all around
All we need is the good in us to be arised
And just let our spirits run sans bound

Song of the Day:- Achha Ji Main Hari from some B/W movie featuring Dev Anand n Madhubala

PS1:- Sachin misses another ton.. 😦
PS2:- Another top innings from Sachin… 🙂
PS3:- News of Sachin taking retirements were rumours… 😀
PS4:- For the first time, i think reading Shakespeare came to my use, the line about Gonzalo’s Commonwealth refers to his play Tempest and the line about mercy came to my mind remembering Portia’s speech from Merchant Of Venice
PS5:- Thought of writing about Teachers’ Day celebration but not in moood to write much.. so postponing it.
PS6:- Today’s was a Hot FSIS..as i have heard.. rue missing it..
PS7:- NLP projects to be allotted in a few days.. Workload ever increasing.
PS8:- Have to make my PS count 10… so doing BC
PS9:- These days every alternate post of mine is a poem.. Tell me when you get bored and I will stop publishing them when I get bored 😛
PS10:- Its already quite cold at 5:30 in the morning, had to wear a full t-shirt today before venturing out of hostel.

जन्मष्ठामी

Please use IE(INTERNET EXPLORER ) to read the post so that Devnagri script is displayed properly.. Thanx.. 🙂

पिछले कुछ दिनों से हिन्दी में लिखे गए पोस्ट्स को पढने के बाद मेरी भी इक्षा थी कि मैं भी हिन्दी में कुछ लिखूं, और एक पर्व से अच्छा विषय क्या हो सकता हिन्दी में लिखने के लिए|
आज रत को हमारे विश्वविद्यालय में जन्मष्ठामी का पर्व मनाया गया | शुरुआत में हम लोग जाने के इच्छुक नहीं थे और हम जाने के लिए निकले भी थे तो पहले कुछ खाने के लिए ही निकले थे परन्तु और लोगों के संदेश आने के बाद हमने सोचा कि चलो अभी तक समय व्यर्थ कर रहे थे तो भगवान् के काम के लिए भी थोड़ा समय निकाल लेते हैं| हम लोग संगीत कक्ष चले गए जहाँ पे सारा कार्यक्रम आयोजित हुआ था | वहाँ पहुँचने पर मुझे सुखद आश्चर्य हुआ , हमारी आशा के विपरीत वहाँ अच्छी संख्या में लोग उपस्थित थे |

एक और आश्चर्य की बात ये थी की ये पूरा आयोजन परा-स्नातक छात्रों द्वारा किया गया था | हमारे विश्वविद्यालय में अक्सर सारे आयोजन स्नातक छात्रों द्वारा आयोजित किए जाते हैं और परा-स्नातक छात्र प्रायः अपनी पढ़ाई में ही व्यस्त रहते हैं | परन्तु ये पूरा आयोजन उन्ही लोगों द्वारा किया गया था और मैं कहना चाहूँगा कि ये एक उत्तम आयोजन था | उस कक्षा में आरतियाँ जिस जोश से गाई जा रही थीं उसे देख कर मेरे मन में येहि ख्याल आया कि भारत में रह कर हम कितना भी पश्चिमी सभ्यता परन्तु जब भी अपने रीति रिवाजों की बात आती है तो हम भी उनको उतना ही सम्मान दे सकते हैं जितना की हमसे पिछली पीढियां | वहाँ पे आरतियाँ गाने से जो सुकून मिला था वो अतुलनीय है | मैं उन परा-स्नातक छात्रों को फिर से धन्यवाद देना चाहूँगा जिनकी वजह से मुझे ये मौका मिला और आशा करता हूँ की आगे भी पर्व ऐसे ही धूमधाम से मनाये जायेंगे |
मेरा लेखन पढने के लिए धन्यवाद् |
