Scotsdale Katta is showing all kind of talent now a days....dance, songs, mimicry...from many days only one thing was missing - drama. Many people were willing to show their talent, but got few chances...1st-April (starting from India's time and ending per EST) provided the perfect stage for all. It was full of plan, drama, emotions, comedy....and also US's hot topics - Health Issues and Insurance(car) were covered.
I am sure Shalaka's carrot cake was very special recipe, because it all started with that and provided enough energy and ideas to all to keep all of us busy for 48hours (may be more.....) the topics chosen were so basic that no wonder not a single Bakara was failure.
Bakara no 1: Amit had sold his beloved CRV two weeks back. He got a call from sister of new owner. She claimed that the vehicle is giving many issues and she needs $1500 from Amit to fix those issues. Amit called the original owner and got even more confused. Ed, Amit's colleague, helped out Amit to understand the consequences, if Amit fails to meet the lady, She could trap him legally..... why to take some one with him (to be safe..), why to carry camera (to take some of her snaps with a vehicle....).
'Amit' was perfect bakara...he never realized it till we showed him 'April Fool' banner. Mastermind plan was done by Scotsdale Katta Mandali.....
Our special thanks to Sanjay's friend who played a sister, Nitin Dada for helping us to hold Amit
for 30min till our remaining gang reach Subway.
Bakara no 2: Sandeep got a call from Secretory of State, saying they found some discrepancy in his marriage date and if it's not resolved, his wife would have to leave USA very soon.
Ameya played Bill Hoffman, a SOS guy and Prashant B. was a perfect helping neighbor.
Bakara no 3: Vijay was fooled by Prashant D, for back bitting. Vijay didn't realize even though Prashant D. was calling from Pradip's mobile.
Pradip and Ragu played pivotal roles in this bitter conversation.
Bakara no 4: Neeraj got $700 bill for Cleaning of his Ear and disposing harmful chemicals that removed from his ear......
Amit and Ameya again showed their creativity while preparing the duplicate bill. A timely phone call from Anjali made it close to real.
Bakara no 5: Bhaskar got a call from JCI Shuttle office. After refusing to answer the call twice, finally he answered a call from Bill, who charged him $500 for using JCI shuttle for personal reasons.
'Bill Brown' played for Sanjay was awesome, while Ameya and Shalaka played his colleagues.
So all decided to call it a day and summarized all these Bakaras at dinner, publicly declaring that it is all over....
But hold on....there was one update, Harish 's car was missing.... and hoping not to fail for this 'April fool' trap he only made it public after dinner but he was right in the middle of the trap.
Pradip's acting did the trick! Bakara no 6.
In addition to these, some got fooled while fooling above bakaras also. Kiran never realized plan about Amit even though he was with Amit during whole episode. Kailas rotated webcam display screen assuming it as lens. Pradip closed window glass instead of blinders when he was asked to shut it to restrict view. Sanjay got fooled by scotsdale maintenance guy for bathroom block notice put by Shalaka.....
We all enjoyed these fun filled dramas....-
- as a group we can fool anyone, whatever might be the smartness claimed ???
- target anyone on the week point and obvious things will be missed by the person being fooled...
- we have developed our self so nicely that anyone can play any role at any stage.......like Dhoni's cricket team, and last but not least
- when any scotsdalian face any problem the first thing he/she does is 'Call Sanjay'!
Do you think, 2008-April fool was over?
After making all these Bakaras public on 2nd-April, we all thought that April fool was definitely over now. All scotsdalekars were happy because bakaras took April fool episodes in good sprit and everything ended as per plan without any issues. But, suddenly Ameya got message from Bhaskar. Bhaskar told Ameya that he is not happy with whatever Ameya has done with him. Ameya passed on this message to Amit, Harish, and Kailas. Everybody started pinging Bhaskar. But, everytime Bhaskar was replying - "I am busy, we will talk in the evening".
Many scratched their heads thinking why Bhaskar was unhappy and what should be done to soothe him. By the evening, news spread to all and everybody gathered at Sanjay's place to have Garma Garma Samosa and probable hot conversation with Bhaskar. Bhaskar didn't reply to anybody's call and meeting ended even with more confusion. Some said 'chidala aasel tar Gela udat..karudet phone tyalach....' others said 'we should resolve this today itself by calling him..'
In between snacks and dinner, Ameya and Raghu had bitter conversations with Bhaskar........better left for imagination...................................
Finally, at dinner, again everybody gathered together (mainly because of Sanjay's initiative) and called Bhaskar. As usual Sanjay started conversation and others jumped in eventually. everybody had his turn, but Bhaskar was not ready to listen. When conversation reached at peak, Bhaskar asked Sanjay - " Sanjay, should we unveil now?" and after that everybody came to know that..................................it was a big April fool from Bhaskar to all Scotsadalekars except one......................Sanjay.......now, we understand what Sanjay was doing in Gym, why he was insisting us to call Bhaskar together......and many more...............................Very good plan by Bhaskar with help from Sanjay......................
All (Bakara no 7) got fooled by Bhaskar.......different people claimed different percentages of their foolness. Raghu - 60%, Ameya - 100%, and others are still doing their calculations..........Kailas had thought that Ameya, Amit, and Harish had made plan with Bhaskar to fool him. So 'thinking ahead of them'???? .............this is what Kailas said..............He made a counter plan to fool them and got double fooled........He is Bakara no 8 . Because he got fooled everytime while fooling others.............................In Amit's episode, rotated Handycam display screen assuming it as lens. In Sandeep's episode, Amurta Bhabhi assumed Kailas as the main culprit. In Vijay's episode, he too thought like Vijay. In Neeraj's episode, he got captured in undergarments, and In Bhaskar's episode, his own counter plan boomranged on him............................................
Definitely, scotsdalekars experienced life similar to the underworld for last three days. Nobody was sure whether plan was being made with him or against him and that's why got fooled most of the times.....................after things became unbearable, everybody finally agreed to ceasefire this memorable April Fool Event till next year !!!
