I feel bad for villains.

“The Joker” 
Brad Pitt of Fight Club
Christoph Waltz of Inglorious Basterds
John Milton-Al Pacino of The Devil’s Advocate
Lord Voldemort of Harry Potter 
Gabbar Singh of Sholay
Mogambo of Mr India
Kabir of Dhoom
Jaikant Shikre of Singham
Kay Kay Menon of Sarkar

All were handsome-charming-bad-boys of their movies and you would agree its cuz of their roles that the movies fared so well on the box office.

I noted the following things-

1. It’s because of these villains the heroes looked so good.

2. They acted equally well or sometimes better than our beloved heroes who had to romance the heroines and impress the audience with cheesy dialogues and flirting.

3. They never get the heroine in the end. Hmph.

4. They generally have to die brutally and the hero becomes the goody goody boy everyone admires.

5. It seems, the dark character of the villain attracts more fan following now-a-days. Why? *self questioning too*

6. The villain has to get beaten up and/or accept defeat. Not fair. He worked equally hard to come all the way to end of the movie, and then finally hero is the winner. Why? Why can’t they let the villains win?

So, I am sorry people, I like the heroes. They are our “heroes” after all, but I feel bad for the villains. They’re so good. They’re hardworking. They make the essence of a “hero”. A hero won’t be a hero if there was no villain.

Ain’t I right?

If my life had a remote control *lost in thoughts*

If I had a remote control to my life, at this time, these are the actions I would take :

Rewind – to stop the incident which leads to a dent in my smile – the falling out of one of my precious 32 teeth

Fast Rewind – to stop the interview I successfully cracked

Forward – see who I FINALLY get married to

Fast Forward – the exams I wrote in anticipation

Pause – the time I made my parents proud after I excelled as top 0.1% of Indian students in academics

Stop – the bullying/ragging I went through

Replay – the dance performance I goofed up on-stage in front of hundreds of people

Dear  Me of 2022,

I hope you have refreshed this list. You just can’t be still hung up on these things 😉
