Funda Number 14

July 27, 2008

Anecdoted by Pranav ‘Wodehouse’ Bhandarkar – an incident that occurred just before the Roger Water’s show in Mumbai on 18th Feb 2007


Btw There is this amazing incident that i had hitherto forgotten to document. And hence without any further ado let me detail the events as it unfolded. We were waiting in a long serpentine queue to get into the concert. Our reasons for not minding the length of this long queue were two fold, 1) we were quite at the head of the queue 2) As the length of the crew increased, our eyes were afforded a scrumptiuous feast. However, our very own Siddharth ‘Funda’ Advani was taken aback by the extremely bold females of B’bay flaunting their doting boyfriends (who were more clothed than their female counterparts) . Soon his emotions overflowed out of his mouth, when he in his own inimitable style uttered,” Fuck!! If I was a father I would never let my daughter come here” . Next moment, Gopal and I were in splits. There was this middle aged gentleman standing next to us who was stunned by the profundity of the statement. In a swift motion he turned and looked at Advani in total amazement and waited in that position of the next 12000 miliseconds. Its a pity, the NDTV cameras had just left (they interviewed a group of friends from b’lore who were standing just next to us) and did not capture this Zen Moment!!! . Seriously NDTV coverage is going to the dogs man!!!


Hmm, after having spent almost a year in the States, I wonder whether that funda needs to be changed….
