Last week...

Last week was near perfect. 2 movies. Dance class thrice in the week. Dinner at a friend's place. Visit from another dear friend. A new technique which seemed to have worked in my hands. And an improvement in my sleep-wake schedule.

Since the day I have returned from Pune, my whole routine is changed. I have started sleeping early and getting up early too. I am feeling good about it and hope to retain this habit. The only thing I am missing because of this is blogging. Mostly I used to write my posts late night or early morning while struggling to fall asleep. But now, sleep comes uninvited around 10:30-11:00 and I am dead by 12. Tonight is an exception, so i decided to write this post.

Saw two movies last week. Luck by chance and Slumdog Millionare. I didn't like the latter. Will write about it in the next post. As far as the former is concerned, I am in love with Farhan Akhtar. The movie is not great but I really like the guy. I have still not seen Rock On. Will do that when i get some time.

Another thing which made me happy last week was that after struggling 2-3 times I managed to make upma finally. I love upma and now I can make it myself. The picture below proves it. Just that it was a little too salty, so I have to adjust that from next time onwards.

Now the reason why I am still awake tonight. My throat has been paining on and off for the past one week and I tried my best to control it by gargling etc. Now it is out of control and looks like a full-fledged infection and I am down with fever and body ache. I hate it :(

All good things are followed by not so good ones and vice versa.

the only thing i din't like about slumdog was that i was watching the bad part of mumbai/India, which I know is true but is not the only part, but i guess as per movie's theme they couldn't afford to show the "colaba causeway"....

@ Aditya
I didn't find Slumdog impressive at all. Sach mein...And it has nothing to do with "projecting the unflattering face of India on the global front". Luck by Chance had Farhan Akhtar :).

@ Shilpy and Jeet

Tabiyat ka to chalta rehta hai yaar. Tum Dev D. dekhna aur batana kaisi lagi. Mujhe time aur motivation nahi mil raha Slumdog ke baare mein likhne ka. Aur Luck by Chance ke baare mein nahi likh rahe kyunki hum ko maloom hai ki hum sirf Farhan Akhtar ke baare mein hi blabber karenge. He is my latest crush :)

@ Sujaan
Dev D. jaake dekho. Bahot badhiya hai.

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…
