i am very donkeys.
i have always hated these beauty pageants. Never showed any interest.
i see my sisters, cousins, nieces talking endlessly about them and see them glued to the TV watchigng the show, and i feel something is seriously wrong with me. 

Have quite a few fashion magazines lying in my room. Chokrees come and ask questions and these magazines keep them from eating my brain. Besides, making women look and feel beautiful is my profession. i see the pictures, models  ads and all.

This post is not about fashion or beauty pageants, its about the number tags.
i can understand in the field of sports where you are judged by your performance or examinations, you get marks and grades, First second third or fourth.
Competetion berings out the best in you but not always.

Some magazines come up with top 100 beauties of the world
i find that very funny.

Heeelo ! How are you ? Do you have fever ?

No i am the one with fever, others are fine.
i juss don't understand these number tags
like number one beauty
Number 2 is not good enough ?
i really pity the number 100, she must be eating cockroaches.
Poor thing.
These number tags insult womanhood.
She stands alone.
A woman has a right to do anything to look more beautiful. Women are programmed by nature to attract males.  They are programmed to be in control. But they are not, unlike the other species.
i hate being in control of anything.
i let myself be blown away by the wind.

oh numbers. yes i am drifting from numbers. Murthy accuses me of jumping the subjects. other friends accuse me of the same.
We'll get back to number tags.

Jimi Hendrix there.
Absolutely no dispute. He is number one. Still.
If Steve Vai, Charlie Burchill, Al di Meola or Joe Satriani is up there at number one i would not dispute that eeda

Some years ago The RollingStone magazine came up with top 100 guitarists.
Silly idea
This is not weight lifting. This is not Tour de France or 400 meters hurdles.
i can understand the stupidity of fashion magazines, Jewelry, perfume or Textile Industry, there is money involved, they have something to sell.

'i feel like i own the stage' says Ritchie Blackmore.
These guys stand alone with their individual style
He is number 55, 

55 ???
changed his style to play Renaissance music with his wife Candice Night.

"I don't care about the rules. In fact, if I don't break the rules at least 10 times in every song then I'm not doing my job properly"  Says Jeff Beck, where is he ? Number what ?

Number 2 according to the magazine is Duane Allman, 

felt sad and ignorant, never heard of him. Many names in the list are new to me. Have to go after them. BB King comes next and followed by Eric Clapton at 4. 
wow !  He won't mind that. 

Keith Richards at number 10. hmmm.
In the movie ' Out of Towners' (remake) Steve Martin says ' i walked in to the office dressed like Keith Richards. 

He looks better than meeee. 
He is followed by Kirk Hammett at 11 if i remember right. i have only one number on my iPod.

i scratch my yeddu when i see Mark Knopfler sitting at number 27.
72 is Joni Mitchell and you begin to get angry, very angry.
Poor thing, she is minding her own business, doing her own things in her own way, Painting composing, singing, and they slap a number on her ......72

Hi Joni, how are you ?

i'm fine,  wan a smoke ?

yes,  no, thank you

you don't smoke ?

i do, but i smoke only when i am alone.

so wassup ?

you are 72

huh ?

You are number 72.

what ?


So ?  what do i do ?  do i feel happy  sad or stop singing ?

Do you wan that number ?

No  thank you,  you keep it.


She would feel silly holding flowers at Jimi Hendrix memorial (Seattle), you are number one and i am 72, sorry i wasn't there at Woodstock.

i don't remember seeing Hank Marvin in the list, perhaps he is there, nor do i remember Dave Evens (the Edge) or Johnny Buckland., must be there at some number

it'll be a tragedy if you slap a number on Miles Davis,  Dave Brubeck, Keith Jarrett Jan Garbarek or Dizzy Gillespie

Its going to be very silly if some one comes up with an idea of 100 top artists of the world. Perhaps some one has.. Van Gogh number one and William Bouguereau number 99  or he may not have a number at all.

Does it really matta ?  

HILO ! Me fine thank you, No i am not sitting at the top of the world, afraid of falling, besides, its pretty cold up there, i would look silly wearing all that heavy winter gear !  i am slipping in and out of clothes without unbuttoning or unzipping them but the weighing scale shows that i have added 2 kilos, i am 56kgs now. improving, i am eating well and thanks for all the emails and greetings.

Christmas time, you all muss be bijjy. Me having Christmas lunch wid Rajkumar, Sarah Becky and John as usual. 

Merry Christmas to you, and a very happy new year 
enjoy the holidays !! 
all my love
