Rambling on: arthur miller has left the building

Saturday, February 12, 2005

arthur miller has left the building

news item on indus tv ----------"the playwright arthur miller ....... was at one time married to maareelin moonru"

ok...

ary news takes the cake though ----------"the famous drama writer passed away at his home in kentucky-cut"

this is the wierdest way anyone has pronounced connecticut...

ok the desi style of pronouncing the "c" before the "t" is endearing but can we just leave the job of doing mother-sister of english language to the pakistan cricket team, inzimam being the leader of the pack....his lazy demeanor shows he has fun playing the part of an anglophile

some years ago ptv announced, to premature jubilation on my part, that gyaara bajay they will be having a new show called "italian grand pricks"

my heart skipped a bit.....porn is to ptv as eloquence is to george bush

.....big brother resuscitates me with a whack to the head, 'it is italian grand prix, you moron".....

i am a dreamer but i know i am not the only one :)

wait we have soft porn thanks the indian channels so what the hell i am rambling on about..... just watch any of the several dance videos of songs like "kabhee aar kabhee paar" and you will agree with me

And why would a straight guy be so excited about grand prix? :)
Anyway, remember the famouse tennis player - Petty Samprass?

actually i was joking about porn but the grand prix reference always makes me laugh... the other player was a pakistani cricketer who played in australia called ejaz faqeeh... while i am at it, there is a IT company called ufaq technologies who put up a roadshow in canada and people were no amused :)

I know you were joking! I am not as dumb as I sound!
Love the names :)
Petty Samprass was how PTV pronounced "Pete"

Ufaq Technologies? You gotta be kidding...

Like once at this conference that our office organised there was a guy called Faqudeen. My boss had to dispatch me (I saw the evil grin on her face as I turned) to go find out if his name went Faq-ud-din or just plain Faqudeen.

Can you picture yourself having to ask someone that question?

Morquendi, ufaq would be pronounced as o-faq. (ofaq means horizon in urdu) you would probably agree that u-faq would mean something different...reminds me of "i scream you scream we all scream for ice cream"...why the f letter word is reminding me of ice cream, dont ask...maybe it is valentine's day and my mind is wandering :)

i like the faq-uddin bit...can't even start the think what it means...lets just say that holy-f comes to mind :)
