these occasions must not go by unmarked

I think my Bollywood one-year anniversary is coming up! I'd have to dig out last year's calendar to be sure, but I think I watched MDK in February 2005. To celebrate, I shall begin a ten-year email correspondence under an assumed identity. Excellent. These sorts of things always turn out well.

Better celebratory ideas are welcome.

Great news! In addition to the 10-year correspondence with someone like Hrithik, you could also start learning a Hindi song, and sing it on the anniversary. And better still, why not start a Hindi movie script? You definitely have the right sensibilities for it :-)

What song, what song? I have the melodies down on lots of them, but even with a printout of the lyrics I do very badly at them. (Yes, I look up lyrics to things, print them out, and sing along with my DVDs. I'm a Bollywood nerd and a choir nerd. Bad combo.)

And a finer compliment than having the sensibilities to write a script has never fallen upon my ears! I can't imagine I'm up to it, though - my "disbelief suspenders," to quote a friend, can make it through a four-hour movie, but I think they'd fail during the months it would take to write something. But the thought is very, very entertaining. Anyway, I need to start organizaing that book series first.

Why don't you ask us to vote? List about 4 or 5 songs and we can choose which one you will sing? :)

You should write the book. No questions/votes/doubts about it.

About the script, I second Obi Wan. Do write the script and maybe even direct it too. Get other people to produce it though. For moral support and otherwise help, I am right here

And so am I of course :-)

I'm not saying this just for the heck of it, pls do give it a thought seriously. I really feel you will write an excellent script.

Well, if I write a movie, it's obviously going to be a vehicle for Akshaye Khanna. Maybe it'll be that one that Bollyhoo suggested. Write what you know, after all. Although I do really enjoy the letter-writing device of MDK and...that other one with Hrithik whose name I can never remember. This one. Hmm....
