Sparkle Part II:AmitL

Hi,all,just thought of some more sparkles over the working week...As I always say,keep your eyes and ears open,and,ideas come naturally.(both good and mischievous,of course..haha).

As sparkling as:(Now,many of these are India-specific,hence,there're links,which are,err,Keshi-specific,and,for any others who're not familiar with our country's sparklers)

- Preity Zinta's smile in the first part of 'Salaam Namaste'
whether she's RJing,or, listening to Jaaved Jaffrey say 'Egg-jactly' or' The ghosts of the kicks not listening to the talks'(Laaton ke bhoot baaton se nahin maante')

- Vidya Balan's pearly white-all of them sparkle when she goes 'Goooood Mooooorning,Mumbai', in her role as a RJ in 'Lage Raho Munnabhai'( Hehe-even the IMDB article says 'great teeth')

- Birbal's wit in Emperor Akbar's court, when he was asked silly questions supposedly meant to trap him,but,he managed to wiggle out courtesy his wit. Like,when Akbar asked him,when they were out for a stroll:
How many crows are there in my kingdom?
Birbal: "There are ninety-five thousand four hundred and sixty-three crows in the Kingdom".
Akbar: How can you be so sure?
"If there are more crows than my answer, then some crows are visiting from other neighboring kingdoms".
"And what if there are less crows", Akbar asked.
Birbal: "Then some crows from our kingdom have gone on holidays to other places".
(Now,doesn't that remind you of school days?I'm sure today's school kids would just say 'arghh' to such a joke.)

Want more tales for ole time's sake?Read right here.
Here's looking forward to the next 'word',Ishi.From the polls,it looks like 'color' is going to be THE ONE. Have a great weekend,everyone.Cheers!
