Morning...

Woke up very early today. Finally I made up on all the sleep deficit that had accumulated over the past few days. It has been a long time since I wrote something on my blog. I was busy with the presentation which didn't go well. And after it got over I was left with many thoughts which I wanted to sort out myself. I know what went wrong from my side and what needs more attention. I will work on it. Learning from my mistakes...but I haven't learnt how not to make mistakes.

I have climbed this far and so I will manage to cross the next few steps and the hurdles that come in the way.

There were so many things which came in my mind in the last 2 weeks and I made a mental note that I would write about it here, but now I have forgotten most of them. Also, I have not seen a movie for a long time. My "to watch" list includes Slumdog Millionare, DevD and Luck by Chance. Just came to know that Luck by Chance has Aamir Khan in a cameo. More reason for me to hit the theatres now. And more things to look forward to :)

Thanks for the appreciation and for liking my blog Kokonad. :)
I try to write on different topics which excite me. But often, when i am not in a good mood I tend to spill over some "depressive items" too. I learnt from a few friends and also you that this should not be done.
I am a fan of your photography skills specially the black and white ones.

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…
