I am not one particularly drawn to an Ariel Levy or Isla Fisher. It doesn’t help that I had literally never heard of either one until today. (Make of that what you will.) Apparently, Ms. Fisher is the fiancee of Sacha Baron Cohen of Borat fame, which is very “naice” for him; she has also apparently ridiculed Scientologists, which is a testament to her good judgement (despite the business of being engaged to Sacha Baron Cohen). No, if we must talk about actresses/celebrities we will never meet, it simply has to be Rani Mukherjee whom we admire:
About such a woman, Sayat Nova might have said:
Ov che tesi, test e uzum, ov tesnoom e, miranoom e
(He who does not see wants to see you; he who sees, perishes.)
Or to use one of my favourites:
Patvakan angin javahir, lal badeshkhan is indz ama
(You are a worthy, priceless jewel, the very ruby of Badeshkhan for me.)
Update: Here is a higher-quality version of Rani performing Main Vari Vari from Mangal Pandey. Tumhari adao pe main vari vari indeed.
On the lighter side of blogging today after all of the terribly grim Kerry and Iraq news, I thought it was about time for another dose of Rani Mukherjee. Here she is in the number Kangna Re from the amusing Paheli. Grimly serious blogging will resume later on.
Thanks to the wonders of YouTube, I can inflict my weakness for Bollywood music on those readers inclined to listen. On a lighter note, here is the beautiful Rani Mukherjee from Mangal Panday, an otherwise unremarkable Indian nationalist retelling of the outbreak of the 1857 Mutiny.
