Dear Friends,

Every ‘Body’ - ‘Thing’ - ‘Activity’ has an Expiry date and Journey Ends at some point. It has come for me in terms of reporting BO Numbers in the DB. While its emotional for me, it’s a needed thing for me at this point.

Back into Memory Lane:

Was following idlebrain.com for movie updates and somehow learned about SBDB from there. The Name ‘Shoban’ itself was enough for me to visit the DB [smile] as i was an NTR’ian to Shoban’ian to Chiru’ian in my fanism career. Few days into DB got to see amazing people having so many civil discussions even around the most debatable topics with utmost respect for each other and highest levels of decency and thats enough for me to make this DB ‘MY-DB’. YS gaaru from Get-GO was my favorite with his wealth of information on anything literally and yet so calm, witty and dignification personified in one person. Always looked upto Vijay gaaru as an elder/mentor who is a walking encyclopedia of movies. Many more influenced me here in those days even though they didn’t knew me much like gaali sir(became my good friend eventually whom i chatted on phone numerous times ), agent116, diamond weapon etc. All in All the DB atmosphere was so welcoming, variety of informative discussions yet no fights and come on what more you can ask right [smile] and thats how i made it my ‘db-home’.

Vijay gaaru’s MAGADHEERA Tracking was the most exciting and most informative and the best tracking i have ever seen and i felt like a child everyday (even though i was near to being 40 years old ) looking for his updates and asking updates/stupid questions etc to him. Age defies Excitement right [smile]. The Experience was just unparalleled in its own. It inspired me to the core. With few tries and proving to some extent YardStick gaaru gave me the mantel of posting BO Numbers in the DB with the Mantra, we will allow anybody to post anything but PB numbers will be final. It sounds rash but it was needed so as to lock onto something finally and it was scrutinized to good enough extent by YS gaaru to hand that kind of power. He Never questioned nor said please change this number or that etc from that point to the time i am typing each letter of this Essay [smile] and that not only un-folds respect for YS gaaru but also adds so much pressure on me not to dilute his faith and I hope i lived upto his expectations to at least some extent. 

My Journey of DB BO Numbers picked up steam from Dookudu and never looked back till SoS and Thank You YS gaaru and Many - Many Friends and Co-Db’ers who have followed or atleast looked at them in this amazing DB. Vijay Gaaru PM’ed me after a while saying ‘good job prasad gaaru in tracking bo numbers’ and i will cherish that moment. Of-Course, like there are 2 sides to a coin, there were always some who were satisfied with my reporting and then somesome not so happy also. It Happens, its emotional to the fans of their hero when we see something thats not to their expectations or what they believe in and its a sensitive area to touch. So all in all it’s a great journey.

Made many good friends here even though never met them in person and with some chatted on phone and will cherish those moments. In this DB i have many names to take but i am afraid i might miss some so i am not taking any of those friends names, they know who they are [smile] . It Even opened doors for making some very good friends who are not in this db and we have mutual respect for each other even though we haven’t sometimes agreed on what’s posted regarding BO and such friends like GIF’s Sudhakar gaaru and Rajesh (Gaali Sir)gaaru, gem of persons they are. For ever indebted to this db for opening such doors for me personally. Man this DB is the most amazing thing happened as one important event in my life chapter and i have learnt how to be passionate and at the same time how to be rational and patient and polite.

I have learnt a lesson way back in my younger days of career on how simple gestures can light up the mood and make relations and understandings so easy. Used to work as principle architect in one of the tech start ups way back when i was in my early 20’s which was founded by a Telugu Guy from Vijayawada. He was 36 years old almost 13 years older to me. When i first met him after joining the company, the first word he uttered to me was ‘Sir ila Randi, yee position ki hire ayyaru’ . That Word ‘Sir’ Stuck in me so deep that it never got out of my blood stream and i have used it immensely in my day-to-day life and in this db right from start and just saw how that simple word made many discussions friendly in this DB. Ok Thats Trivia and i will stop it here [smile]

SoS will be my last film to track in the DB and after that i am dropping my guard on reporting. May not be very active but will continue to participate in DB. May be you guys can see my real side, my friends say i am as sarcastic and witty as anybody can get yet humorous [wink] .

Thanks again to the most amazing person Yardstick gaaru for giving me this opportunity and my respect for you knows no bounds. Kudos to you Sir & the Friend you are and the way you are running this DB.

Again Thanks to each and every friend in this db and every co-db member. You are the people who are making this db a special db and please continue to maintain respect for each other and keep this db the most clean db out there.

Regards
PB

dear lord!! there will be an explosion in online world wrt box office numbers after this [frown]



I have clear differences with numbers many times but it always its good to have that someone with tough stance/credibility though I am not liking it. With others I doubt I would even care knowing their history [smile] 

SVSC lo PR ki closest representative la unde PB garu (for bo) [wink] thanks for what all you have done till now. 

ika it will be one fan number versus other fan number, i guess.

Wonderful write up sir. Your words about Ys Garu really summed up why this db is what it is. The foundations are strong.

We respect your decision on refraining from b.o analysis, it would be interesting times ahead for this db w.r.t b.o tracking.

On the +ve side , looking forward to seeing your sarcasm and humorous side. Best wishes sir.

Though sad, We respect your decision PB Garu ! Yes, Personal life is more important and its time we move on ...

The BO tracking was the main reason for the popularity of this DB and you have never tried to manipulate any number for whatsoever reason. Your numbers were reference for many. There are many who admire you silently and few who hate you and vociferous in displaying it. However as a dutiful warrior you always performed without caring all these.

To those who arent aware Prasad was my just senior in my college and till date I havent met him in person [smile] World is so small that we are destined to meet and have journey together. Many don't know his other side, He has been benevolent and has helped many members in DB just knowing them in virtual world which was amazing and never even spoke a word openly about these.

To all of us its fun but for Prasad garu its responsibility facing the ire, venom of numerous people and even friends...

Prasad garu, you might end up the tracking but wish you be active in DB and also assist the next P_B as it would be toughest and crucial role in the DB !

Thanks for your wonderful contribution to SBDB and though we all miss your matchless efforts on tracking BO numbers, we have to respect your decision.  Please do visit SBDB and try to contribute and enrich the DB in other ways whenever time permits you.

I know very much how difficult it is to procure, interpret, produce genuine information and after that facing criticism from a section of people just because they are not satisfied with the output.  So, for all the hardwork you done and hardship you faced, hatsoff to you.
