There was a huge ruckus created in the Indian advertisingscape over an article by afaqs Sreekant Khandekar on wednesday. Read the 'Rant Against Scam' article here. You may want to read my last year's post on Goafest here...
Had scrbbled some lines on the flight back from Goa...Sreekant's rant inspired me to complete the 'tukbandi'. Here it is!!
Goafest - Bajate Raho
Teen hazaar se jyada delegate, pachason agency
Last year se jyada thi excitement ki frequency
Mausam tha great, arrangement super-fine,
Daaru was flowing, one only missed good wine!
Zoom party thi hot, so was the rain dance
Youngistaan mein 40+ bhi le rahe the chance!
Hoodi baba, Balki ka is baar bhi tha kehna
Goafest se humme door hi hai rehna!
Joshiji ka convincing nahin tha bahana
Jhooth bolne ka ab nahi raha zamana!
Entry nahin thi to scam hi kartey
Sab ne jam ke kiya, aap kyun the dartey!
Last year ka scam king Rediffusion raha peechey
Lagta hai midland book-store ne budget kiya neeche!
Is baar Burnett ne jeeta scam king ka khitaab
Lintas ke client ki chura li poori kitaab!
Jury ne mil kar Ogilvy ki kheechi taang
Pandeyji ne 3rd umpire se ki appeal ki maang!
Wahi puraane chehre, mostly puraani sound byte
Logo ko chhota karo, reduce font ki height!
Goafest hoga har baar goa mein, CM ne diya vaada
Lagta hai chadhai thi do peg jara jyada!
Ek aur beeta saal, ek aur Goafest
Mind mat karna doston, this was half in jest:-)
(P.S. The picture you see on top is that of Goafest 2007 and not 2008.)
