Biological clocks didn't seem to bother them. Time was one of the things that they were here to kill. The normally laid-back Hyderabadis have long been feeling the need to swing to their favorite music and with their favorite women all night long, and a blast had to occur somewhere. And it did, in what might be the genesis of nocturnal life in Hyderabad.

The dusk-to-dawn party at TI was a cracker in terms of the crowd turn out, especially considering the major event at Nizam College that was happening the same evening. With a Latino theme, a midnight setting and celebrity guests, it was the perfect weekend for all the dance-lovers of town.

The night started out with a party that acted as a warm-up for the real show. And the party was on for quite sometime before DJ Ivan, the show's MC, finally appeared. The leftovers from Nizam and the we-want-more people from the Channel [V] show came there at about the same time. The never-say-goodnights were there throughout, screaming while Ivan was threatening to wind up if he didn't hear some of it.

Ivan may not be a classic DJ in the sense of the term, but if a popularity chart were made during the night, he would have been among the top. Conversing with the dancing public, coaxing them into more rushing of adrenalin, giving them the unknown without any cause for protest - he showed all the signs of being a contender for the 'classic' slot. Before he left to meet his ten-day old kid (that's cute!), the patron saint for dawn to dusk parties shook, banged, gyrated, Gypsy Kinged and J Lo'ed the dance floor.

For a fleeting few minutes in between, we were treated to the Channel [V] jockeys, Kim, Carey and the singer Abbey. Carey, the blond, went on to the stage to render a fantastic 'Slim Shady', the now legendary song of Eminem, which was arguably the highlight of the night. "This is the Hyderabad I love", "That's why this I love playing here" - these were just some of the comments of a man who could have passed off for a bunya, until, of course, he got to the turntable.

There were some stags off the floor; a few dozen couples on it and a few lovey-doveys flitting all over. TI's Ecstasy has always been a Hyderabadi's cupid nest, with the DJs usually playing cupid. And it was all the more pronounced tonight, because this particular DJ watched while he played, scratched and mixed. He even impressed Mr. Prasad Reddy, the boss, who stood around smiling at the way things had shaped up.

So the next time someone says dusk-to-dawn party, there are going to be a lot more towners ready to go that extra 20 km. It is surely worth the drive.
