Happy Birthday John Abraham! A Dozen Reasons I Love You!

He deserves a birthday post, right?  Maybe not as long as the ones I did for Dilip Sahib and Raj Kapoor, but still something.  Let’s say, a dozen reasons to love him, that seems fair. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)

Happy Birthday Raj Kapoor! 63 Reasons I Love You

You’re dead, but that’s no reason to stop celebrating.  Your legacy lives on in many ways.  So I am going to count down 63 reasons I love you, one for every year you lived (until you died). (obviously this is a reposted post from last year, I don’t have time to come up with 63 new reasons every year, not even for Raj)

Happy Birthday Dilip Sahib!!!!! I Read Your Autobiography for Your Birthday Part 1

I finally read it!  Don’t tell my friend who brought it for me all the way from India 2 years ago, only for it to sit on my shelf unnoticed unloved and unread.  Until now!  It took a while, but I finally finished it.  And it was fascinating in lots of little “history of the industry” ways.

Massive Multi-celebration Birthday Post!!!!!

Happy Birthday Shotgun Sinha, Dia Mirza, Dino Morea, and Priya Gill!  Phew!  I’m exhausted!  Obviously, they are not going to each get reasons I love them.  Let’s see, how to be fair?  Okay, each person gets 3 reasons, either 2 songs and one fact or two facts and one song.  Whatever I feel like. (this is a reposted post from last year)

Happy Birthday to One of My Favorite Commentators!

Commentors?  Commentatorite?  I think I’ll stick with Commentator.  Anyway, I’m not going to call you out, but you mentioned in passing your birthday over two months ago, and I immediately wrote and scheduled this post for today as a special treat.  Feel free to identify yourself in the comments if you want! (you mentioned your birthday more recently, but I want credit for figuring it out and scheduling this post ages ago before you came right out and said it!)

Happy Birthday Juhi Chawla!!!! A Dozen Reasons I Love You!!!

I feel bad only giving her a dozen, but on the other hand I am also taking time from visiting my sister to write this post, and using my sister’s stupid mac computer to do it (the mouse only has one button!  What is this MADNESS!), so that should count for something.  Oh well, next year I will give her 2 dozen reasons to make up for it.

Happy Shahrukh’s Birthday! In Mathematical Terms

My sister, the teacher, celebrates Shahrukh and Amitabh in her own special way.  On their birthdays every year, her homework problems have a very special theme.  Also, there is background music playing during class.  And depending on the ethnic make-up of the group, they either really get into it (like when she was teaching in New Jersey and the class was 2/3rds desi) or are super confused.  Anyway, this year she is letting me share with you all, so we can all learn about Shahrukh, and also math.

Happy Birthday Aish! My 12 Favorite Songs

Aish is not my favorite actress ever, or my favorite public persona person.  But on her birthday, I am going to follow a “if you can’t say anything nice…” policy, and just focus on her dancing, which is incredible.  She shows both Bharat Natyam training, and a really good ability to sell a dance onscreen.  So here are my 12 favorite Aish dances. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)

Happy 1 Day to Shahrukh’s Birthday! The 1 Way He Makes Me Feel

Yaaaaaay!  For the 1 day, the final day, here is the 1 way that Shahrukh makes me feel.  And, okay, I’m going to go a bit over the top here, but I figure, if you’ve come with me this far, you feel the same way.  Plus, I’m all caught up in the holiday spirit!  And this is almost the same post I put up last year, but that’s just because my feelings haven’t changed since then.  There’s just a few more songs available to express them.

Happy 10 Days to Shahrukh’s Birthday! 10 Best SRK Expressions

A light one after I got sucked in to two posts yesterday.  He jokes sometimes about how he is only working with 5 expressions, but we all know that is a joke, he is really a wonderful actor.  Although he also knows how to use his face in certain set ways that the fans love.  Here are my 10 favorites, feel free to add your own in the comments (reminder: no way to insert images from your computer, but if you can find them online, you can insert an image link by simply going down a line before and after.  It works best with a short link).
