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... :)

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...

Healing and conquering myself, one tiny step at a time

"It is not the mountains we conquer but ourselves."
-Edmund Hillary
Two years back, when I had set out on my first trek in the Himalayas, I did not know what I was getting into. It began as a quest, a search for the place that I was dreaming about for the last few years. Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand did turn out to be straight out of my dream and I still cannot believe it. I remember sitting on that large asymmetrical rock for more than an hour, looking at the snow-clad mountains and scribbling in my diary as the cool wind blew in my face and the sun tried its best to warm my fingers. 
Less than a year later, I went back to the mountains and it was then that I realized that I was meant to go back, not once or twice or thrice, I just have to be there every once in a while. May be that recurring dream had a bigger purpose than calling me to the Valley of Flowers. May be someone up there knew that it was just a beginning. And now that it has started, it shall go on till my…

This 'Barfi' is sweetest of all

After a long time comes a movie that makes you laugh and cry at the same time. One cannot stay unmoved by the love and spirit of two people who suffer from hearing and speech impairment and autism. But it doesn't come in the way of identifying their individuality and their likes and dislikes. Neither does it prevent us from empathizing with their feelings.


The story begins with an ailing Barfi (Ranbir Kapoor) and a bunch of people sharing their memories of him and reminiscing about the past. We are introduced to the prankster who knew no boundaries when it came to creating trouble. The local policeman (Saurabh Shukla) was one of the main targets of all the pranks whenever he went chasing him. Barfi was too smart to be caught for any of his crimes. Things change when Barfi gets involved in a kidnapping and a bank robbery. The story of Jhilmil (Priyanka Chopra), who was kidnapped by Barfi, then unfolds. Barfi and Jhilmil go through a lot of ups and downs. The initial mistrust is ta…
