Saturday pataka!!

Yesterday was the annual St Joseph’s College fest “Equinox 2006”. Quite an enjoyable day at the college grounds. I missed last years fest as I was working that Saturday, so we i.e my friends and me decided to go this year. The last show on the menu was various bands playing their music. The ground was packed. Since it was threatening to rain, we decided to keep to the periphery of the crowd so that we could make a dash for it when it starts pouring.

The band was in full swing and suddenly one of the band members, a chubby guy, got caught up in the heat of the moment and took a swinging dive into the crowd. He must have been inspired by similar stunts by popular bands as seen on TV. Inspite of the ground being packed something strange happened. The crowd parted like Moses parting the sea and the band member fell flat on his face onto the ground.

I just collapsed laughing.

The crowd helped him to his feet and tut tuted at the plight of the poor guy. He limped back bravely to the stage with a strained smile, waving bravely at the crowd. Everyone was commiserating while I could only clutch my aching tummy and laugh. That was Saturday pataka after Friday Dhamaka.

What a weekend!!

Is the mere prescence of Silverine making the environment intoxicated or drugged that these guys start doing foolish things???

Ouch... that was bad.
Has somebody told you that "events" happen when you are around? I wonder why...

LI said...

Me just wondering why these Dhamakas happen when you are around. This happens only in Bangalore . Again let the poor guys in Bangalore survive yaar :).

Fleiger said...

And now I see not somebody, but everybody has told you that. And your reply is...

silverine said...

Unni, Flieger and Li: It not my presence but my observation powers...did you notice no one in the ground laughed but me? I was the one who caught onto the hilarity of the situation :)) Flieger I rest my case.

Fleiger said...

Ok, so it is not you but your smile that does it...

This should explain to you why Steve Tyler from Aerosmith WILL jump into the crowd and be carried around and why someone like, lets say, Meatloaf will NOT attempt such a stunt.

Funny, funny and like Mind Curry said, it happens only in India.
