Fever ke side effects...

The fever is back again. The cough is bad too. I realized something. That I become a 'little' more sentimental when I am unwell. Or may be it is estrogen... No, I think its the fever because this is not the first time I am feeling this. I have felt this before.

Last night I cried watching Full House. There have been plenty of emotional moments in the series but i have never cried watching it. But when Jesse surprised Rebecca with a special Christmas gift- snow (when it had not snowed) all over the backyard with a cute snowman standing in the center, because for Rebecca Christmas is incomplete without the snow. That was really cute.

Because of the cough I am not able to talk a lot. That's the reason for blogging this often. On normal days I would have told this to my buddy and then forgotten about it. Since I am not able to do that, I am expressing here. This is my corner. :)

Today I saw 'Pyar ke side effects' finally!

I liked the movie very much. Shame on me. I call myself a movie-buff and i saw this one 2 years after it released. I remember I had almost gone for this movie had I not been screamed at by my guide that day. That was the only time I got a proper thrashing from my guide. Forget it!

Though the movie has been treated 'comically', it does not lack in sensitivity. It takes a lot of time before a man is ready to commit, to marry, to have children. Basically, men are slow in all those matters which are important for women but they are pretty fast in some other matters.

'Jaane kya chaahe mann, baawra' is one of my favourite songs. It was called the "feeling-blue-song" in our lab. Remember K2 and MayRe? I saw it in the context of the movie and it was even better. :)

One thing I liked the most was Naanu (Ranvir Shorey's character) attending the wedding of his ex-girlfriend. It is difficult to fall-out-of-love, though it is not impossible. And one of the best ways is to accept the fact that the person belongs to somebody else and you don't mean a thing to that person. The ego cannot take it that from being everything you are no more than a speck of dust in somebody else's life. It helps to forget the unforgettable. It's true.

Hmmm. It is entirely possible to fall out of love trust me, it just requires some unexpected jolts in life :D I loved the movie very much too, btw, very nicely done! And it's good to see you blog often and positively :)

I can relate to it... Actually this is the time... when u need someone u love the most... and when thats not happening its frustrating...

But to me that was a major time period when i fell in love with myself... and now i take care of myself... Its satisfying... :)

Coming on to the movie... i know guys can be that stoopid... and there were scenes like... guy getting crazy by watching his gal thinking about kids... and Especially the scene where gal shops... hehehe... "Its Nice..." I simply adored that...

A poem from childhood...

"Long legged Italy, kicked poor Sicily
In the middle of Mediterranean Sea.
Austria was Hungary
Took a bit of Turkey
Fried it in Japan
Dipped it in Greece...."

I remember only this much. This poem was my first attempt at learning the names of these countries and locating them on the map of the world. And I thought Austria and Australia were same. :-)

It's time to confirm that I was wrong at that point of time, some twenty years back...

Something has changed

I was talking to this friend after a long time and the first two questions he asked me were, 'What movie did you watch last weekend?' and 'Where are you traveling to next?'. I refused to answer his questions till he first asked me how I was. We laughed and he said that he keeps seeing my updates on movies and travel and wonders when he will find time to do that.

I have always loved to travel. I remember once my parents asked my brother and me to make a wishlist of things that we wanted. I had added 'Trip to Delhi' to that list. Then came a time when all the focus was on board exams and competitive exams, and the joy of traveling was forgotten because it mostly meant going to a new city to give some exam. 
It all restarted once I came to Mumbai, 13 years back. Before I landed in this city I had turned into a shy, timid girl whose friends used to help her cross the road and get a rickshaw for her so that she doesn't have to talk to the rickshaw-wala. I can&#…

Taare Zameen Par

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...

TZP tries to define "taking care" which is very different from what is percieved by most adults.

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, who incidentally is a topper and is 'fit to compete in today's world'. He just gives up trying and gets lost within himself. Ishaan was lucky enough to get noticed by a teacher who understands his special needs. How many other children would find similar support? Wha…
