My 100th post :)


I had been waiting for long to write this special post. However, I had not decided what will be the content of this post. I wanted to write something which I have not written before. But then I didn't get enough time to put in more thought. So, I decided to write about my blog on my blog.


I came to know about blogging from my friend K2. She was a regular blogger and I loved reading her. One day I was remembering another friend of mine who is no more amongst us and I decided to express my thoughts in words and the result was this post. My second post was about the first love story of my life. Then I started writing about a subject which I love the most-"Movies". I am a complete movie-buff and all those around me can vouch for this fact. The first movie review i wrote was for 'Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna'. It became the most popular post on my blog but I deleted it sometime earlier this year. With the post all the 'fantastic' comments were also lost. I regret doing that now.


I stopped blogging for quite a while in between and then i came back in Mar 2007 and since then I have been regular, with at least 1 post every month (I have improved that to 3 posts a week now).


I was reading my older posts (i didn't know it would be so much fun) and realized that more or less I have been writing about the same subjects which are:
  • Movies
  • Books
  • Friends and Family
  • Random thoughts (happy)
  • Random thoughts (sad)
  • Some posts with 'hidden meanings' :)

My favourite posts (one from each of the above category) would be:

Movie related: Lamhon ki guzarish hai ye (song), My fav songs

Book Review: Kite Runner

Friends and Family: Bachpan

Random thoughts (happy): I want to be free, My room, Smile

Random thoughts (sad): Mumbai, It

The one with 'symbolism': What do I do?, Umbrella


This post has turned out to be a "review" of the past 2 years. I wanted to compile some of my favourite posts somewhere, so this post serves that purpose too.

In the coming year I don't know how much time I will be able to devote to my blog. If my enthusiasm and an urge to write and express stays with me I will try to reach the 300th post mark in 2009. Lets see :)

As life and times have changed drastically in the last 2 years, so have been my thoughts. The frequency of writing has increased several fold because this space is taking the place of a friend for me. If something strikes me or makes me very happy or very sad I start thinking about how i will express it here. I do have my buddy and other friends here, but still I like to express it here. It gives me a different kind of satisfaction. I intend to keep on writing...and as pointed out by another friend of mine, I will try to think and write "positively".

Thanks to all my friends who follow this blog and all those random readers who drop in every now and then. Keep on commenting... :)

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…
