What do i do?

This time i want to write about a ritual i follow everyday and a problem i have been facing.

I have 'n' numbers of glasses and bowls, big and small. Everyday i drop my riches in them after placing the glasses and bowls in a particular sequence. Of late i have observed a change. The bowl which comes first doesn't seem to get filled. I end up pouring all my earnings in that bowl and still i see it empty. And i m left with nothing to put in the other bowls. I m turning poor everyday...

Taare Zameen Par

Kyun is qadar hairaan tu, mausam ka hai mehmaan tu.
Kyun is qadar hairaan tu, mausam ka hai mehmaan tu.
Dunia saji tere liye, khud ko zara pehchaan tu.
Tu dhoop hai, chham se bikhar.
Tu hai nadi, o bekhabar.
Beh chal kahin, ud chal kahin.
Dil khush jahan, teri to manzil hai wahi.

Saw the first show of Taare Zameen Par yesterday. A Beautiful movie. A must watch for all. The movie deals with an issue 'less-explored'-- needs of a child. 
What does "taking care of a child" mean? Putting your child in the best school available. Spending money on tutions, swimming classes, dance classes, and what not. Getting them the best designer wear available. Chocolates, video games, picnics...

A child who is too young to understand why he is not like other normal children of his age goes through a rough time both at home and school. Then there are constant comparisons with a sibling, …

The moon: Better lost than found!

Do we have to appreciate this movie just because it comes from Prakash Jha Productions or it is directed by Sudhir Mishra (of 'Hazaaron Khwahishen Aisi' fame)? Or because it tries to tell the story of yesteryears filmstars?


I m sorry i can't do that.


Khoya Khoya Chand is one of the most boring movie i have ever seen. At the end of it, it is just a retro-fashion parade by Soha Ali Khan. She does look stunning. But is that what a movie should be about?


The editing is bad which makes the movie discontinuous. Characterisations are poor. The music is ok.


Oh yes, how can i forget Ravindra, who plays the reigning super star (with hardly any screen time and zero dialogues). What??? You missed that 'hunk with a stubble'? Its too late now. You wont even find him if you Google (i tried that!). :-)


And the most funny moment in the movie was not a part of the movie but occurred on the other side of the screen. When a chaotic scene of horses galloping across tents was being shown, a …
