RGV Ki Aag - Ceedy Ka Paani

Remember this scene from the epic Sholay.
This is a scene where Jay (Amitabh) approaches Mausi to talk about possible marriage of Veeru's (Dharmendra's) and Basanthi (Hema Malini)


Just my take on it - What if it took place in the current internet era.
The basic assumption is that Veeru, Jay, Basanthi and Mausi!!! yes fan wielding Old Mausi are all internet savvy and Ramgarh is technologically connected to the world.
Mausi : Son, I have this huge pressure on my mind, I wish I can get Basanthi married. Then I will be at peace with myself and dont have to put her profile on Shaddi.com
Jay : Yes, you are absolutly right, you do have a lot of pressure on your shoulders.
Mausi : But, I cant simply get her married to any stranger, can I ? It is very important to know which Tech Company he works for, his internet browsing hours and habits and his per hour billing rate.
Jay: Per hour rate, well once he is off the bench he will start to make some money and then once he has to take care of wife and the kids he will actually go out and seek a job.
Mausi : So, it means he is does not have a job and is not looking for one!!!!!!!
Jay : No, no, where did I say that, he sits in the internet cafe all day and keeps posting his resume.
Mausi : What, all he does is post resumes!!! What about going to these new offices that have spurted on the outskirts of Ramgarh.
Jay : Yes, Mausi, he will also do that, once he gets time in between blogging and commenting, his long chat sessions and scrapping to girls on Orkut, Facebook and MySpace.
Mausi : Scrapping girls!!!!!
Jay : Yes, Mausi, you know how these internet meeting places are. Allows for ample free speech and e flirting.
Mausi : So he is flirt!!!!
Jay : He and flirt, no, no, he simply wants to make some good friends there. But once he sees a cute profile and some nice posted pictures, what is he supposed to do? Its not Veerus fault is it?
Mausi : You are right son, he scraps women, flirts with them online, but it is not his fault.
Jay : Oh you are getting a wrong impression,.......he is very naive and straightforward.....get him married to Basanthi once and he will simply cancel all his online profiles.
Mausi : Oh!!!!! You are trying to explain this to an Old lady. Has anyone ever been able to give up his online addictions.
Jay : Mausi, you dont know him well, he is not that kinda person, once he gets married he will stop seeing porn and have live sex chats.
Mausi : Oh!!!oh!!!!.....now this was the only thing left. So he also frequents these kind of websites.
Jay : Yeah, whats wrong in that? So many people frequent these websites to increase their libido and add spice to their personal lives.
Mausi : Ok, so atleast tell me how does he manage to pay for all this when he does not even have a job.
Jay: Oh, he is smart, he has it all figured out, he is part of a group "internet fraudsters", he uses other peoples credit cards and information.
Mausi : Oh well, one thing I noticed, your friend does all the crazy things online but you still are all praises for him......
Jay: Now, now, what can I say Mausi, I always try to portray my online avatar - BigHeart. So should I consider this marriage fixed.
Mausi : FIXED !!!!! Are you crazy, I cannot marry Basanthi, to such an online deliquent. I am a real aunt not her step mother.
Jay: Sigh!!!! it is so sad, even though i tried to explain to you everything in detail....you still refused.

Poor Veeru !!!!!!!!!

you have a great sense of humour ..maybe you should write spoofs for films

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Ceedy,
Those are on line verities, a part of a bloggers life. But going through porno web sites and flirting on line are not the cup of every blogger. It depends on the blogger's very purpose for blogging. Thanks for the post. God bless and have a wonderful and peaceful day always.

Preethi said...

Lol. Very funny. I wonder what Veeru is gonna say for painting this oh-so-purrrfect pic of him. he he heee still giggling.....

@backpakker

thanks for the inspiration - right now am concentrating on making bloogers life....maybe sometime later in life :)

cheers!!!

c e e d y said...

@mel

thanks for you comments. the way of this write up is that in India people still have arrainged marriages - and a friends or family goes to a girls house to ask for her hand for their friend or son....

this is an excerpt from an old india movie that shows the depth of a good friendship where the person goes to this old lady and tells her that this guy is basically a drunkard, a gambler and a philanderer - but still he is good at heart and ideal for marriage

so took the same context and put it in the modern day perspective - we read about these evils all the time and how they are wreaking families.....

c e e d y said...

@preethi

well veeru still got basanthi inspite of being a drunkard, gambler and philanderer in 1974....so I assume its not going to change that much....but well dunno about modern day women and mausi's :)

you and preethi fellow bloggers will be in dilema whom to support?

Its almost certain Patriots vs Giants superbowl ...... I would like to hear Newyorkers view on this one......

c e e d y said...

@raaji

its a definate watch if you like hindi movies....it changed and paved the way for many indian movies to follow - and today after 34 years (was released in 1974) is still one of the best movies that came out of bollywood.....(many ppl here will probably agree)

c e e d y said...

@solitaire

isnt this one movie which you can watch umpteen times and still love it :)

c e e d y said...

@-xh-

Thank you sir....yeh to thoda masti hai

c e e d y said...

@rohit

ab main poochunaga zaroor - kaha pe mila....

well spiritual ppl search for the "light" - creative people carry it between their fingers right !!!!

c e e d y said...

@abreshyam

well its not always lust - it can also be a form of spiritual awakening.....but I wont go there - its a very sensitive topic

welcome back....you do take a while to resurface...

c e e d y said...

@kp

thank you boss....technology ai machavi khali bali...

was also thinking if you goto do arranged marriage in the US wont "what is your credit history" be the most important and pertinent question a couple should ask each other....that holds the key to "financial" american freedom :0

c e e d y said...

@preetilata

thank you for visiting....glad you enjoyed it :)

do keep visiting and I will do the same :) multiplied by 5

c e e d y said...

@kp

yes that is a very interesting question dude....but if you go by the way they play - patriots are very good....saw their match last week they basically tired giants....
but again yesterday, colts who have similar game to patriots made some blunders....so for me i would say i support football this time...not a team
