Now you are hung up on my usage of "hung up on". Just kidding. I wasn't even using it in a pejorative manner, it's just a turn of phrase that comes naturally to me when I want to call someone out on their persistent outlook on something. There. Better? And please, I wasn't trying to employ Physics into the discussion. Only God knows how much I curse that thing called Physics everyday. Theory of relativity can be employed in a regular conversation too without treading into Physics and Newton's laws of motion. Since I noticed that you tend to look at the whole shebang as opposed to me who looks at one thing at a time, I brought up the theory of relativity to put our differences into perspective. For God's sake, how does that warrant such a caustic reaction from you?
looking at one thing at a time... isn't that exactly how the flowchart works... how do you expect to reach the conclusion, if you don't consider all the points...!
Quote me where I said that SDM is the ONLY movie she's done so far? If you go over my posts with a cool head, you will see that the overall point I'm trying doggone hard to make since the past few days is that Freida's work, considering it alone, does not warrant the amount of hype she gets. And that is strictly my opinion. If you believe that her body of work does deserve the hype, that is absolutely fine with me. Just don't expect me to appreciate or agree with it.
Is that your perception of desis living in the west? That they are hardly happy to see other desis succeed? Not that this has anything to do with the topic and I hate to be disagreeable, but I think that depends on what kind of desis you been hanging out with. Perhaps I have been hanging out with the right ones, hence I don't think so lowly of them.
Anyways, coming back to the point, perhaps you got the impression that I am not happy to see Freida's success. But that couldn't be further from the truth. We both agree with the end, i.e. Freida's success. It's the means that I have a problem with. How hard is that to comprehend? Sheesh!
lowly...? no, i don't hang out with such desis, not that it's any of your business...! look at any job field, you'll see similar trends... and it's not ALL, it's the majority... there are exceptions everywhere... world is not black and white you know... perhaps, you are too young right now to have experienced such things, but it does not matter...
nah... i am not under any impression, and i don't form conclusions of other people's life based on their comments... seems like that is your hobby, but i assure you, it hardly interests me...
and as i have said it earlier, i really do not care what you have problems with... world is not out there to appease each and everyone... there's no magic science behind that either, that you can't comprehend, and continue to repeat points, by becoming more and more personal...!
yup, lowly. I mean, if you say that desis are jealous of the progress of their own kinds, it means that you hold a low opinion on them, innit? Unless you consider that a high opinion.Coming to what kind of desis you hang out with, I was not tryna intrude into your personal business or anything. It was just an attempt at tryna know where you opinion is stemming from. It could either be coming from a personal experience or just plain observation, innit? Either way, I apologize if my inference came out as a personal attack.
And just to clear up another thing, I didn't jump into the discussion to tell you how you view the world, you know. Not THAT interested in the inner workings of people's minds now. I only brought it up to contextualize the reason you don't find Freida overrated while I do - it was very much relevant to the topic of discussion. You ask why I felt the need to do so, well, my answer would be to make sense of both sides of the argument.
Hopefully things are clear now.
Not that this has anything to do with my point but just to touch on that bit about Kat/Deep/Sonam, they are popular because badnaami mein bhi "naam" chupi hoti hai. As long as people either love or hate them and not ignore them, they will continue to grow popular.
exactly... and that is something that i always say...
hum taalib-e-shuhrat hain, humen nang se kya kaam
badnaam agar hon ge, to kya naam na ho ga...!
that's by Ghalib, btw...!
That's a great couplet. Feels good to be on the same page with you for a change.
p.s. if you have issues with the response of certain people, you can always report those comments... you certainly do not need to redirect them towards me... just because some people might be okay with them, i certainly am not...!
it's kinda amusing to me... on one hand, you find comments which suggest you're making 'nasty, etc.' comments out of line (which i have to agree with), but on the other hand, you also make personal comments, which are also out of line... espcially comments about other people's personality (not only in this topic but others as well)... in any case... just something i noticed... but hey, whatever floats your boat...!
