Moving on....After Harsha Bhogle, its now Gayatri Iyer..
What would you call a person who completes her MBA studies from a top institute like IIM, Lucknow and instead of going for a stable job gives up everything in favour of music? Definitely a music freak! Yes, that's what you can describe the 20-something years old Gayatri Iyer. Despite no family background in music, Gayatri has risen today to be one of the most promising voices of the film industry, having sung for composers like Anu Malik, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Anand Raaj Anand & Himesh Reshammiya....read more....
Dunno much about the songs she has sung so far but she sure is a looker...And her tresses...*sigh* ...If only i had scraped through L and not landed up @ SP :-P
Ouimaaa... Just back from lunch and chanced to meet TV now..Its been quite sometime since we caught up and has he put on weight (now looks whos saying that) 3 minutes into our conversation, we got down to talking about the greatest binding factor between us: Cow-Bull :-p CB, as i delight in explaining is a true test of one's vocabulary and analytical abilities. The way it is played is as follows:
Player A thinks of a five letter word say FLIRT. Player B has to guess this word within 20 chances. He starts off with guessing BRAVE. Player A compares BRAVE with FLIRT. In case there are any common alphabets in the same position he counts then as 1 bull and if the same alphabet is present in a different position then its counted as 1 cow. After comparing all five alphabets, as in this case, he comments that its 1B 1C (I in same position and R in different positions). Then Player B guesses CLEAN. Player A responds by saying 1B....And this goes on till the 20 chances are up or the word is cracked
DRIVE - 1B 1C
CLEAN - 1B
HOUND - Nil
SLATE - 1B 1C
FIEND - 1B 1C
(Note: this is where analytical skills comes into play - a casual look at guesses 1, 2, 4 and 5 could easily mislead one to believe that E is definitely there..)
FLIRT - 5B (game over)
The word to be cracked should have no repeating alphabets since the clue then given will not be unique as to which repeated occurrence it is referring to. Another rule that is religiously followed is only common names - no proper names.
Now why all this hullabaloo about Cow-Bull.. Coz i don't think there is anyone on planet Earth who plays (or atleast used to) this game better than me... TV, who introduced me to this game, was good but i was always a notch better. Together there has not been a single word we haven't cracked..OUIJA included :-)) Raising a toast to you, TV, for discovering the champion in me :-))
