2 weeks to go...

Nothing is coming in its way now.

I cleaned up my room (more importantly my fan) and now the environment is conducive for me to sit and study and speculate. All the clutter is also gone (or hidden). I just need to concentrate and study now. I will do it...

Another thing which was pending was the review for Ghajini. I finished writing that too (see below). Now my mind is free for other more important things.

Also, my mood is a little better now. After last week's failed experiment I was feeling so low. I didn't do anything except deciding what reagents and other materials are required to make this experiment a success. The cheapest and best option costs Rs. 30,000 only. Prepared the indent and kept it on boss's table with shaking hands, praying that she doesnt scream at me and blame me for the failed experiment. Like most of the time, she didn't say anything, just signed the paper and gave it to me. That was the war I won yesterday. I felt like a school kid trying to get the parent's signature on the report card after failing in all the subjects.

No matter how much we grow up... there are enough happenings which keep us reminding of all the bad things in life.

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…
