Well if you think this post is about any spirit , then i am really sorry to disappoint you .... and you may stop reading from here on . So you are still reading .... good! .
Well today i again went to land mark for killing some time .... and this time i actually ought a book ( but only after i finished one while sitting there ). So one thing which i noticed was that most of the songs being played there were from the 80's ( yeah the disco decade!). I took a look around and saw people sporting some hairdo's of 70's ... flashy sunglasses .....and some things ... which i don't know how to name ( one problem after coming from goa ..... you feel you are completely out of place .... but feels good ... i look at it as making a style statement .... eshtyle ).
And so it stuck me .... people are actually doing things their fathers or grandfathers did 20-0 years ago . Coming a full circle ( maybe !) .... good marketing by movies like OSO (hated it !) ...... or may be herd mentality .
Well i feel that half of the people out there dont care a damn about fashion . What they do care about is .... what their neighbour is doing . And so a few people ... try to market their product .... start to publicize the product which they want to sell in the name of fashion . A lot of wanna bees take that bluff and follow it ( may be too much money ..... or too little brain ).... and a domino effect follows and soon you end up in a place ..... listening to the diving disco ..... surrounded by elvis prototypes .... and looking strictly futuristic.
Well so here is my take ...... old wine looks good in the old bottle .....( though it is fun to see the fancy dress ) ..... the classics should be treated as classics .......
as for me ..... i am enjoying my back to the future look and now it is time to go back to my books ( bahut paise karach kiye hai yaar ..... buying a book for reading .... what is happening to me ?)
