Beauty and Money.....

two things most of us r hypocrites abt......we say something when its concerning others and something else when it is regarding ourselves...
maybe we do it unknowingly
being a dentist i deal with aesthetics daily....
eg 1. just yesterday a patient came to clinic....she had habit of chewing tobacco n had brown stains all over the teeth...now normally she would not have thought that for her health of her gums n teeth she should firstly stop chewing tobacco or at least get scaling (cleaning) of teeth done every 6 months....but she came at nth hour when she had to go for a wedding n jus wanted outer (buccal) side of front 6 teeth cleaned..she said to get rest of her teeth cleaned she wud come later....lets c
a similar case came few months back too where the groom had come for scaling 3 days prior to wedding...he is yet to come for cleaning rest of teeth....
2.today only...one uncle came...he has only upper front 4 teeth..they r also shaky..n now he wants artificial denture for jus front teeth coz he has to attend a wedding..he is not bothered how he will chew....he has no posterior teeth....n even his hew lower teeth which r there r all shaky...still he is not bothered to do the entire treatment which involves removing all teeth n making a denture..that wud improve overall function of chewing n eating....
countless patients get their front teeth treated be it root canal or crown or filling or denture in one shot...we hardly have to convince them...but if it is poor molars they wait till it reaches the stage of removal....feel so helpless then...
young girls come for orthodontic treatment at age of 20 or 23 in short marriageable age in their caste.....n when v suggest the treatment for 8 or 9 yr old girls when it is actually more effective better results seen...parents say treatment is too long or expensive
everyone says beauty is not important...your character is..your heart n your soul is...but sadly no body wants to check out the rest of them if the face is not good enough...
if it were not true why do stories like ugly duckling exist...why didnt anybody not treat poor little duck well until it blossomed into a swan...
same true for money too...people say its not important...it causes misery...true if not handled properly it does...but it is important....n not always it causes misery....
someone told me....PEOPLE WITH MONEY ARE UNHAPPY AND SO ARE PEOPLE WITHOUT IT...BUT ITS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE RICH N UNHAPPY RATHER THAN BEING UNHAPPY WITHOUT IT.....
how true this is.....
so let us accept that both these r important...know to value it....after all it takes hard work...beauty maybe god given but maintaining it is in your hands only.....so no need to be ashamed to admit its worth....
we think people will call us money minded or look conscious....but its not true...they jus call u that coz they r not able to achieve it n so r simply jealous....nothing else...

ram gopal varma ki aag.....

well m so glad it bombed....along with victoria 203....recent two movies which were remade n flopped big time...
hopefully it will put off film makers from remaking old movies....
didnt see it...trailers n posters were enough to make u feel disgusted....
i guess DON too didnt do too well....so out of so many movies which were remade only devdas n parineeta did well....n that too coz they were presented well....n film makers didnt toy with the soul of the movie....
why cant they make more movie from books..n give the credit where deserved n make a good movie....
out of so many movies seen recently i thought only chak de proved to be a great entertainer n everything was going for the movie..
even heyy baby..well i wud anyday prefer to watch three men and a baby..
the love story angle was so pathetic.....n the joke was funny only when it was repeated twice not 5 times...by the 5th time the joke lost its humor....
hopefully our film makers get inspired by something more than a past hit movie....
good luck folks..
n RGV better luck next time...

malaysia

finally my tomorrow has arrived.......

so from singapore v went to malaysia...in malaysia first v went to genting highlands...it is a mini las vegas...v went there by skyway...one of the longest roperails in the world...it was pretty cold out there as genting is situated on top of a mountain hence the name highlands...

well at genting there r 4 or 5 hotels...each connected by lifts n monorails n escalator...n like las vegas there r play areas for kids....where u play games n win teddy bears n stuff...also there is a casino there...(banned for malaysian muslims though)...the hotel where v stayed had an attached theme park...which was a again a mini version of our good old essel world...

after having quite a good time in genting for 1 n half day...v proceeded to kuala lumpur city of gardens...beautiful landscaping done all over the city...n colourful lights hanging on every tree..beautiful

there we saw patronus twin tower (4th tallest tower in world as of now....n the ONLY twin tower)...also saw kuala lumpur tower....its a telecommmunication tower...it seems taller than patronus twin tower coz its built over a small hill...the hill is called something annanas..

there is an interesting story abt it..some rich guy built his home on that hill..n to prevent thieves from entering he grew pine apple plantation around it...so the hill is called ananas (remember even in marathi ananas means pine apple)..thats why i remembered the malay version of the name too...hehe

then we visited chocolate factory outlet.....where v sampled delicious chocolates n of course bought some too.....

we also saw the kings palace.....quite a young couple...king is in his forties n queen in thirties...

from there we went to out hotel...n to our surprise our room was on 19th floor n from rifht outside the window we cud see patronus twin tower...n what a sight they were..glitttering as jewels...the whole building is made up of steel n glass on the outside...

n jus for information sake this is where shooting of movie Don has taken place..where shahrukh n arjun rampal fight...

next day we had to leave early in morning as the airport is quite situated outside the city...n we had an early flight to catch....

next attraction.....THAILAND...will write soon...
