It all started in October 2007, when a good friend and partner in crime, Arjun Kolady decided to start a new venture. A venture that within 2.5 years would reach more than 100 resilient and passionate individuals.
I have now made the elite list of the under-30s CxO contacts in India as a (brace yourself) - ''Chief Subversion Officer" for the 101-strong 'We Hate Gurgaon' group on Facebook.
I was appointed a CxO on inception, but didn't think back then when we started that this would become a meaningful position. It was just a post created to add an element of fun for all who were part of this movement (hope I don't get into trouble for saying this). Now that we have over a 100 members, the meaning of this position becomes all the more meaningful and important to me personally. I pledge my allegiance and undying loyalty to this great cause.
Will YOU be the 102nd?

By Manan Singhi – January 02, 2010Following the brouhaha between Chetak Bakbak and the 3 Idiots team, Video Vinod Chopped-ra decided to get everyone in a room and decide how these differences can be settled so that he can concentrate on writing his next blockbuster with Himes bhai in the lead, titled '2010: A Greater Love Ishtory.' The discussion is preceded by everyone ritually dancing to the groovy dance moves by the 80-year-old-looking-13-year-old. After taking a breather, Chetak Bakbak (CB), Ameer Kan (AK), Rogered Kumar Hairaani (RKH), Abhi-jaata-hun Jyotshi (AJ), and Video Vinod Chopped-ra (VVC) were sitting in a circle with the famous single-butt-styled 3 Idiots chairs. To mediate the conversation, they called upon Chatur who insisted that the ' Balatkar ' he referred to in the movie was in fact a prediction that he had made on 5th September 3 years ago, which would affect the movie post it's release. Chatur : Maananiya atithiyo - main aapka swaagat karti. Mahabharata abhi part 2 nika
By Manan Singhi – April 27, 2010Ok. So this is not a Mills & Boons-like post at all. In fact, it is something quite different from what the title seems to suggest. I had arrived in Mumbai the previous night and was absolutely sleep-deprived owing to the IPL finals being played at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Mumbaikars will sympathise with me when they understand that I was scheduled to stay at The Trident, Nariman Point . The journey from DYP to TNP was gruesome and tiring to say the least. However, that was the night before. This night was an entirely different story though. I had finished early from work (purposefully) and had resolved to lose some flab and exercise my slightly bulgy sinews by taking a walk down Marine Drive - The Queen's Necklace (am sure the 'freedom fighters' of the country won't be proud to hear it being called 'that' again). Therefore, with sleeves rolled up, a strong resolve, an iPod in hand, and earphones in my ears (where else?) I commenced my short,
By Manan Singhi – December 28, 2009Continuing my previous post on Song Packaging , I thought I'll follow up the post with some new additions, many of which have been suggested by my readers and some that I might have missed out in my earlier post. Kya Karoon - Wake Up Sid (2009); Singer: Clinton Cerejo; Music: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy; Lyrics: Javed Akhtar; Director: Ayan Mukherji; Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Konkona Sen Sharma A song that captures the youth in its essence. If you want to understand the mind of today's teenager who wants to live life for today rather than worry and think about tomorrow, here's a song that tells you exactly that. What especially stands out in this song is that this song is the typical day in the life of a fresh, college-going student. Guess it takes a young director to bring out the emotions and feelings of the younger generation. The scene where Ranbir seems to be floating in the air without a care in the world is the defining moment of the song and is representative of a feeli
