Welcome 2010!!!

Its time to say Good Bye to the past and welcome the new year 2010. Like any other thing, cine field with full of magic and virtuality, also welcomes the new year with new beginnings and hollywood or bollywood are no exceptions. Of course 2009 had filled the box office hits worldwide with big films such as Roland Emmerich's 2012, James Cameron's sci-fi dream project Avatar, much awaited installment series Terminator Salvation etc., bags a huge millions and some are still running successfully. When it comes to bollywood, 2009 was the amazing year for the cine-gods especially for Khans. Obviously Aamir Khan has given bollywood's biggest ever hit Ghajini and his latest humorous bomb 3 Idiots makes the biggest collection in his history. but it hasn't met the expectation for King Khan SRK since his Billu was not up to the mark. But it is expected that 2010 will be the good one for king of bollywood, Karan Johar's much awaiting "My Name Is Khan" is going to hit the screens. Like every individual, I welcome this new year and I wish you all a very happy new year. Cheers!!!

Bill Clinton to Woods

It is always a fashionable question "Why men cheat on their wives?". It is difficult to find the solution and you will get infinite counts popping up this subject. That's because a recent study says that half of the men tends to cheat their wives apparently they won't admit to it. we have many samples for this right from the former US President Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, which caused major shook amonst the US politicians (ofcourse to this world too), former tennis legend Boris Becker who got divorced from his wife to the latest hot chip Tigerwoods, we have many examples which are very closer to our life. When you look at these happenings a big question is raised why men cheat? But a study says that it is a natural instinct in them to have more than one partner unfortunately our system doesn't encourage to do so that they have possesion in their mind to have pleasure with more women. Men are biologically programmed to do so hence there is nothing to blame them. But do men always have a reason to cheat his wife? And do you think cheating is done only by men? Our social dynamics has changed in recent years and when it comes to Woods or to a common citizen, there is no specific reason for infidelity I guess they do for an excitement. But I think it is a very vast subject that could be endlessly debated.
