Mera Naam Joker and the 123 Tag

I was planning to write a post on Saraswati Puja, as many of my blogger friends mistake her to be devi durga. but my laziness overtook. And now I found an interesting tag in the chaiwala's blog. And for something that interesting, i don't care to be tagged.
so here goes the rule:
Pick up the book closest to you. (OK, you can cheat, pick up the book closest to you that you like; but that’s about it - no more cheating). Go to page 123. Go to the end of the fourth sentence (not line). Write the fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth sentences in your post. Follow it up with ten words or ten sentences about what that sentence means to you - then and there. Spontaneous!


I cheated. I looked for a book that I like. and I went to another room. Rejected harry potters, Roald dahl, inscrutable americans, how to draw cartoons and all my bengali books( as they are unsuitable for the task)...Finally found the one. "Mera naam Joker"- a novel on the Raj Kapoor movie.


Listen, son. Between ten hungry lions and one beautiful girl- do you know who's more dangerous?
I'm beginning to catch on a little, Ustad-ji. The one who's more beautiful is the more dangerous one.
Right, absolutely right. Remember this game of love is very dangerous. Beware of your limbs - and your heart!


There come some times when we all find ourselves in a circus. Love make us do all the stupid things we otherwise would never do. But it's also love which bring out the man from us. You know the game is dangerous, you can get hurt. Yet, the danger makes it more fun. You face her, spend some tensed moments without knowing what will happen, and the next moment you are all wounded. You quit the arena, but not the game. One day you'll be back, with a new lioness. Because it's your destiny to perform. And thus the naive boy will turn into an expert ringmaster one day.


I was not tagged. So I'm not tagging anyone. Feel free to take this tag. It's really wonderful.

Dwai - you might want to reconsider the name of your blog - after this post. Very well done; this doesn't qualify as crap; definitely not meaningless! :) Cheers!
