Hullo hullo. I will, this time, refrain from further falling off the otherwise very responsible sounding occupational echelon that I sit upon by producing yet another ode. Instead, let me serve it straight up this time as unlike last time, I was present at the scene along with most of the WC mad hatters. And what a scene it was! Masses of drunken bodies roamed and oft collided in the specially constructed little village on the beach in attire which would make the pope reconsider his options in a collective state of surreal stupor! Vigorous limb movement inducing music echoed around and the air was repeatedly pierced by “Oh my f***** god, I haevn’t seen you in ages!!” and some such voices! Russian fire dancers would suddenly apparate out of nowhere followed by salivating males around them! Alcohol was tossed high in the air before being turned into absolutely free concoctions for all! Right, okay, enough. I think you get the picture.
Mild confusion prevails over the number of dolphins that have waded into the little red corner of our conference room where all the other assorted shapes and characters which make up our awards showcase are housed. However, I’m happy to declare that a minimum of four and a maximum of five dolphin type trophies were recieved on 22nd april on a beach in Goa at Goafest 2007. The dacoits got gold, daddu went silver while Chitthi and Aao bagged a bronze each. My, wouldn’t the real dolphins like to know about their colorful friends doled out as metal at award shows.
Anyhoo, in between fleeting glimpses of the fauj running up and down the stage and rest of us cheering and jumping around on lower ground and following it up with free food and alcohol, it was a bloody good show.
We are all back now and the sights have been set and fingers have been crossed over those pretty pencils and lordly lions which are given out at the big daddy award shows. Here’s to more odes then! Oh, for a change, no one managed to take any pictures of the half a dozen faujis who went onstage, twice, coz the buggers were too busy posing for cameras that did not belong to us so I shall have to look around a bit before I can put some here. Which I will.
