Hey guys! It’s Mayher! Sorry I haven’t been posting lately but I’m working on contributing to this blog a lot more.
Some pretty big news that you guys probably heard about is that WE ARE HAVING A BOLLYWOOD RANDOM FANDOM! This is the best news any Indian can hear.
This RF will occur on March 10th from 4-5:30 in the program room. Please wear white or bring a change of white clothes for the Holi event (last part of the RF).
Here’s a little bit of background about Bollywood:
Bollywood is one of the biggest film industries in the WORLD and it made 204 movies in 2015 alone. The highest grossing movie of 2015 was Bajrangi Bhaijaan(according to Wikipedia, the most reliable source 😉 making over 626 crore rupees or 92 million US dollars.
Not to mention, the amount of fangirls and fanboys is literally the entire population of India plus more. That’s a lot of moms.
My favorite part about Bollywood is the singing and the dancing in every single movie. Everyone wants to know the latest song or learn the latest dance move. They express sheer joy and happiness throughout the world. (And I get ALL the songs stuck in my head; it’s hard to not love them.)
We decided it would be appropriate to host this RF during the spring time because of the ever so popular holiday: Holi.
Holi is about the celebration of colors in the Hindu religion (but many people outside of the religion like myself can still celebrate it). It is similar to Diwali in that it represents the good overcoming the evil, but Holi is celebrated to mark the beginning of Spring. People throughout India flood the streets wearing white and throw colored powder at each other, and it is a very fun event.
And look how pretty Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor look in Yeh Jiwani Hai Diwani.(I ship them so hard.)
Even in this Gif she’s saying she’s having fun. (Itna maza)
Well, I hope you guys can make it and celebrate the glories that Bollywood has to offer!
