secret revealed…

Hell!! never thought blogging could be so addictive. Was having a bath and found myself flush with ideas!!

Anyways, I  want you guys to have a close look at this and tell me what this is:

Yes!! you’re right. It’s a Copper Stripper. (technically it’s a wire stripping tool, but who cares ­čÖé )

Pop quiz. Recognize this famous scene?

All my┬áBollywood loving friends will instantly┬árecognize┬áthis scene from the movie Chachi 420, where Jaiprakash Paswan aka Jai (played by actor┬áKamal Haasan) acquires a new identity – Laxmi Godbole – the female protagonist of the movie.

After getting divorced, Jai, who is eager to meet his daughter Bharti (under custody of his ex-wife), applies for the post of a nanny for Bharti.

And during a telephonic conversation with his ex-father-in -law, Jai advertises himself as a nanny.┬áLux (the underwear brand) becomes “Lakshmi” (with due respects) and “Til Gul Ghya God God Bola” becomes “Godbole”, and┬áthe iconic “Lakshmi Godbole” is born. Kudos to Kamal Haasan (and of course Paresh Rawal) for playing such a fantastic role in the movie.

Coming back to the subject, once I was whiling away a weekend at my home in Mumbai, thinking about possible names for my blog site.

And then I heard something – Khachaek-Khachaek – the sound of the omnipresent┬áBhangarwala peeling insulation off old unused copper wires. Thats when the name struck and stuck – CopperStripper.

Cheers Guys !! Thanks for reading ­čÖé
