Sometimes

.... you are like a successful poor quality masala movie that runs for a 100 days in India. You tour talkies from Himalayas to Kanyakumari. You visit a dozen states see many patti thottis along the way and speak/get dubbed in many languages. You are projected and seen in different shades, colors and contrasts. Old people, young people, children, ladies, psychos, celebrities, hot chics, underworld rowdies, police, nut cases, eccentrics, wise men and women see you. Sometimes you are a houseful show and sometimes you play for nobody. Some people are born when you are around. Some people die. Finally you run your heart out, you get mixed reviews as you are packed and sent on your way. After you leave they talk about you for a few seconds and then...

The show goes on.
