The Preparation Begins to being an Engineer: My Counseling

      In the last week of august 2008, Mummy, Papa and I left for Delhi and after spending 10-15 days there, I alone left for Indore on 5th of September, Rahul and I took a room at a rent of Rs.2600 and shifted the same day, so I decided even before the counseling that I am going to spend my next 4 years in this city. It was totally a different thing for me; I never lived in a house where the owner was not my Dad. I waited for the counseling date patiently, On the 10th of September my parents also joined me in Indore, I felt better, I was feeling alone in this city, Indore not at all resembled my hometown or the state I was born in, you can’t say that with Delhi, you can start loving Delhi at once with all the glamour around you, but Indore is a different deal, Indore had its own ways.
      Finally the Day came; we went to the SGSITS campus, my parents, Rahul & I. I was called for a day schedule but the whole process with each and every student’s counseling formalities was too lengthy and too slow, so because of that the pre-scheduled ‘Daytime’ counseling happened at 9.30 pm, My Dad & I sat at the counseling hall, the operator led me to the computer screen and asked me the choice of college and department I wanted, I went for an IT branch in a college called PCST. Abb. Patel College of Science & Technology, located near the famous lover’s point “Ralamandal”. Anyways in this way, “my fate had been sealed” and I took admission in the next two days that followed.

Lets have 'em One on One

I was watching this movie called "Million Dollar Baby" starring Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman and Hillary Swank, it is one of those rare inspirational flicks you can watch just many a times.

All of a sudden, I came across the idea of doing a One-on-One comparison of Actors from Hollywood and the Hindi film industry.

After many disagreements in my head, I have thought of the following actors, who are similar in their style of acting and the roles they get to play and by simply because of some similar facts.

1. Clint Eastwood vs Feroze Khan, although Eastwood is a much bigger name in his fraternity, but these two actors have kind of a similar body language and attitude, don't forget Feroze Khan was our only cowboy hunk.

2. Morgan Freeman vs Naseeruddin Shah, great actors and legends both of them, but what is common link is their intense role play, they can do comedy to romance to sci-fi and thriller with unbeatable class acting.

3. Hillary Swank vs Priyanka Chopra, fits in every character they play, they are fast, athletic, sweet and can switch between being a girl and being a woman.

4. Bradley Cooper vs Hrithik Roshan, I don't have proper words to explain this one, but their personalities and expressions are almost identical.

5.Jason Statham vs Salman Khan, If there is a cop or any 'over smart' character to be played, there are no better name than Jason or Sallu. They fight, they dance, they romance and they beat the shit out of any goon in the town, and they never panic.

6. Tom Cruise vs Akshay Kumar, if there is a need to remake Mission Impossible in India, there is no second choice than this Khiladi called Akshay Kumar, both of them are real stunt men, need not to say anymore.

7. Tom Hanks vs Aamir Khan, If Tom Hanks is perhaps the finest actor in hollywood, we have Aamir Khan on the counter-part, perfectionist, intense and master of their skills.

8. Drew Barrymore vs Kareena Kapoor, they are beautiful, graceful, great actors and have a long line of predecessors in their families, their families are into cinema for more than 75 years now.

9. Russell Crowe vs Ajay Devgn, blessed with great acting the two of them, dives deep into the character, and delivers something extra ordinary, just take 'a beautiful mind' and 'once upon a time in mumbaai' for an example.

PLEASE do Comment... and tell me your agreement and disagreement on each one of them...
