Happy Engineer’s Day (in India)!!!! What a Wonderful Holiday!!!

When we were little little girls, our grandmother brainwashed all 5 of us to believe to the depths of our souls “engineers make the best husbands” (guess what my grandfather, father, and brother-in-law all do?).  And so I can’t ignore this holiday!

1.1. I love this song for perfectly capturing the look and attitude of the IIT grad.

 

2. Shashi makes a very cool and easy breezy type of engineer.

 

3. A less cool engineer.  But with a pretty assistant.

 

4. New version of life for an engineer, Bangalore, freedom, and fun.

 

5.  Remember, Viviek is a computer engineer too!

 

6.  I almost forgot, Shahrukh was a computer engineer too!  Of the cool video game designing type, but still.

 

7.  And of course, Swades.

 

8. Going back to the classics for a moment, remember when Dharmendra helped his uncle invent solar power?

 

9. Going back to those computer engineers/video game designers, let’s look at Prabhas in Mr. Perfect!

 

Okay, that’s all I’ve got off the top of my head!  Feel free to add on in the comments.

          • It’s true! Not saying you have to talk a lot in real life, but I think introducing Grandpa to a computer screen and a semi-anonymous commentator won’t really inspire his trust.

      • Hi there! I have another random translation request: another behind the scenes video from JHMS. It’s like 90 seconds long, and I’m just curious what little cute things SRK might be saying throughout…

        A couple of notes: at 35 seconds I note that he has no trouble kissing (nuzzling, whatever) offscreen–ahem; and at 1.14 seconds we get a little more evidence to judge the butt question. Sigh, I think you may be right about the optical illusion in Hawayein, Margaret. 🙂

        • I just presented this to my panel of experts (two of my co-workers who are also performers), and the agreement was that if you have your leg up like that it will always straighten and lower the butt level. More importantly check out around 40 seconds when we get the chair shot from Beech Beech Mein. That appears to be his natural butt level and, while not at the same hieght as Hawayein, it is still good.

          at 0:29 Are you crazy?
          at 0:35 yes, take it. it’s late.
          at 0:30 (?) (i didnt get what he said)
          at 0:52 When i get naked, so does everyone else
          at 0:58 Let me know if i still have my nose. Anushka: It’s there
          at 1:00 but for mom and dad, your brother in law (something, something *bad audio*)
          at 1:08 after this, we’ll go up there
          at 1:25 do not let me loose

          There were some dialogues from the film so I’m assuming you know them better than me already.

          Enjoy!! 🙂

          • Perhaps this is the explanation for our discussion on male/female gaze videos? Dard E Disco was supposed to just be SRK, but then random women saw he was naked and started ripping their clothes off?

          • No that was Farah enjoying being in the director’s seat and using all her experience to hardsell her film. Just SRK would be too much. Besides, you’re not supposed to notice the women in the background. They’re props. Sounds horrible but that’s the truth.

          • I like that you specify just SRK as “too much” rather than “too little”. Which is true, just naked SRK is like the sun, you would have to look away.

            Like saying “OMG Salman so hot” won’t be an issue for people but analyse every part of SRK’s body and face and his hair for 3 years and suddenly you’re obsessed!! SHEESH!!

    • I’m looking at my DVD shelves, and I’m drawing a blank. Women are lawyers, doctors, interior decorators, and fashion designers. and models sometimes. But mostly just daughters/wives/sisters.

      Oh!!! Tabu in Kandukondain Kandukondain!!!! She’s sort of a computer engineer. and there’s another reason to watch the film, if you haven’t already. And Kajol in VIP2, the antagonist to the hero and a more successful engineer.

  1. Engineers day is celebrated for vishveshwaraiya who built my home town to all its glory and was Dewan to the king. He designed and executed asias first hydroelectric power station and dam. Bangalore was then the first Indian city to get electricity. My dad and allmostveveryone in my family is an engineer. So this is a very special holiday 😊
