Posted by sk in abhishek, aishwarya, Blogroll, Bollywood, Hindi Movies, India, movies, Movies and Entertainment, wedding.


This list of famous people who won’t be at the wedding is compiled from several sources, including this.

1. Salman Khan – ex-flame, so, no.

2. Vivek Oberoi – same reason

3. Karishma Kapoor – ditto

4. Kareena Kapoor – sister of ex-flame?

5. Mukesh Ambani

6. SPARKS members – unbelievable! None of us was invited. Jackasses.
and last, but not the least,

7. Robert Scoble – any event of this scale to which Scoble is not invited is not worth it, right?

A thorough analysis of the guest list provides the following statistics:

49% of the invitees are family members of Abhishek or Aishwarya

24% are friends within the film industry

24% are friends outside the film industry

and 3% are no longer alive


3% of the invitees have heard of the Sparks blog and 25% of them use the Sparks blog as a source of information about hardware and software products.

49% of the invitees have read the “Riya Sen” post on this blog and among them, 23% have asked for the clip.

9% of the invitees have viewed tismar’s profile on shaadi.com and this includes the bride.


If you have any more details, please let me know and I’ll update this list. I am to make this post a comprehensive source of information about the wedding that the whole world is talking about. Thank you!

Music, Yahoo, Microsoft, and more December 19, 2006

We’re back. After a brief hiatus, here’s another random post. I’m going to start off with the current playlist on WMP 11 on my comp:

  1. All songs of Guru (except Baazi Laga)
  2. Kabul Fiza (from the movie Kabul Express)
  3. Carry on Wayward Son by Kansas*
  4. Dust in the Wind by Kansas
  5. Point of Know Return by Kansas
  6. My December by Linkin Park
  7. Feel Like Making Love by Bad Company
  8. Songs from Sillunu Oru Kadhal (Tamil movie) – if anyone says New York Nagaram was copied, I’m going to break their bones.
  9. Songs from Tehzeeb (A. R. Rahman)
  10. Saathi Na Koi from Bambai Ka Babu (An old Rafi song)
  11. A couple of songs from Zeher
  12. White Album by the Beatles.

Does anyone care what I’m listening to? I don’t know. Just wanted to let you know. 🙂 Anyway, thanks to Guru, I’ve started listening to a few Bollywood tracks again. What are you listening to, dear readers (if there are any left)?

*I actually heard this song on the radio while driving to Tucson and tried to remember a few words so that I could search for it on the net. Unfortunately, I couldn’t. Thankfully, the song played again a week later and I remembered three words, “Don’t you cry.” I searched for the phrase, “Don’t you cry rock lyrics” on the net and couldn’t find the song. Later I remember two more words, “Carry on”. This time, I searched for “Carry on don’t you cry lyrics” and found the name of the group on Google. I love Google search. I really do.

On the topic of Google, do you think Microsoft will acquire Yahoo next year? I really hope they don’t. But the way Yahoo! has been doing lately, it does seem possible. And Microsoft has already tried once this year. What do you think?

ish, I’ve taken care of the pr0n links. Thanks for pointing it out. 🙂

High five!!
