Where did the tradition of extras lifting up bollywood actresses and carrying them across the stage come from? And why is it so important? Why do so many dance sequences have a section where exactly that happens? All the while the actress is frozen, her face either cool or ecstatic. No inbetweens. Where did this mysterious tradition come from?

    Orginated from the ballet?

    Hey Rahul,

    As enjoyable as your rants are, I had a quick (unrelated) question for you: during your time in Dubai…were you a student of the Cambridge high school?

  3. Rahul Says:

    Thank you. There’s a lot of luck involved in making these rants enjoyable. And yes, I was in CHS. How’d you make that connection? I’m presuming you were there too, given that no one but my classmates knew me in Dubai. 🙂

  4. Ali Lakhwaira Says:

    Whoa…the question stems from something I’ve been trying to locate, another question: did you at anytime live in a place called Al Sh’aab/Al safiya colony in Deira? (hope this doesn’t cross the `creepy’ border)

  5. Rahul Says:

    Indeed I did live in Al Shaab colony! Where were you staying? And what kind of memory pills have you been on?
