Questions Waiting to be Answered...

Some questions that have always got me thinking... Some are damn mind-boggling too...

Why are child actors not considered as child labour?

How does one horoscope in the newspaper apply to so many people who share the same sign?

What should I do if I'm getting married and my horoscope for that day says that 'relationships are going to take a turn for the worse'?

How come the sequels to a film never usually match up to the original? (Notable Exceptions: Indiana Jones Series, Shrek & Nolan's Batman Series)

Why is Shah Rukh Khan considered as an actor with just one facial expression when he's played many different roles, such as that of a villain in Anjaam, Darr, Baazigar; a romantic hero in Veer-Zaara, DDLJ, KKHH, etc.; comedy in Duplicate, Yes Boss, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, etc.; ground-breaking roles in Swades and Chak De India and at the same time won so many awards for it too?

How come no one noticed Rob Pattinson in Harry Potter 4 or 5, but only in Twilight? Was it the excessive make-up?

Why do people consider Jim Carrey as only a comedian when he has carried out serious roles in films like The Truman Show, The Majestic, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Number 23, etc.?

How come Titanic hasn't been adapted (copied, rather) for an Indian audience yet? (In the Indian version, the hero and the heroine will be the only ones to survive along with the heavy suitcase of the villain which is full of money and shares. After this they will break into a romantic song in which the they will swim [read: run] around the ship [read: tree])

How come Pritam's plagiarised songs sound better than the ones from which he has shamelessly lifted?

Considering the West's point of view that Slumdog Milionaire was AR Rahman's best work to date (thanks to the Oscar) then what will happen when they hear the soundtrack to the films Rang De Basanti, Delhi 6, Lagaan, Saathiya, etc.?

Whom should I believe- the church who says that Hotel California has Antichrist traces or Eagles themselves who have denied such allegations? (Considering that bands usually never hide the themes or the ideas that inspired them to write their songs.)

Why did my parents ever feed me with the sugar-coated story of Santa Claus if they had to break the bubble later on?

If boredom gets your creative juices flowing (as my friend Julie once said), them what about lack of sleep? (Considering that this entire post was born due staying awake till 3am because of lack of sleep!)

How does the fast train manage to move slower than the slow train?

How in the world did Akshay Kumar films like Singgh Is Kingg and Welcome become hits? (Thank God CC2C, Tashan & Kambhakht Ishq flopped!!!)

Will the style that is so much in vogue nowadays be called the retro style 30-40 years later?

We have had rock stars like Freddie Mercury (Queen), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), Kurt Cobain (Nirvana) and Axl Rose (Guns N' Roses) as our idols in music so long that we look up to them even today... 30-40 years hence who will be that generation's icons? Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Dave Matthews (Dave Matthews Band), Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day), Chris Martin (Coldplay) OR Akon, 50 Cent, Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, Flo Rida, Eminem?????

If people hear from one ear and let it out through the other ear, does it mean that they do not have a brain in the middle to register anything?

When is the next reality show coming out? 'Iss Reality Show Se Mujhe Bachao' - the show in which 10 contestants will stay in a house while facing an onslaught of various other reality shows (like Himesh Reshammiya's Roti act in SaReGaMaPa, Rakhi Ka Swayamvar [or whoever else they manage to get], Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao, Bigg Boss, etc. Maybe an international reality show like Paris Hilton's Best Friends Forever can also be added for the contestants with an international taste!) The contestants will stay in the house for only 40 days. (Come on, if Jesus could fast in the desert for us for 40 days, we can surely bear the 'torture'!)
