A few general things on life. Considering this is the longest the blog has remained quiet – about a month of silence I think.
The New Year started on a very raw note. I felt like the universal cow was chewing my happiness. By the fourth week of January though, it felt like the happiness had been spat out like cud and I grabbed what I could. So there it is, I am relatively happier than I was on the 1st of Jan. Which is fantastic.
1. Saw Rann. What an awful film. What’s with camera work that shows you two quarters of someone’s nose, a half ear and maybe magnified eyes? If I want to go look at Picasso, a film called Rann isn’t where I expect to see it. Was bored to death watching the film.
2. Saw Ishqiya. How charming, how lovely, how dark. My childhood crush on Nasseruddin Shah remains alive. I now also have crushes on Arshad Warsi and Vidya Balan. Of the two awesome songs in the film, one wakes me up in the morning, and the other makes a melancholic nerd out of me at night.
3. Saw Paris again. I was right the first time around.
4. It pays to complain. I complained and am receiving some compensation where in the first instance the authority in charge denied all liability.
I do want to write more. Sometimes, the thought of people mercilessly deleting my feed from their feedreaders makes me want to howl. But other than making what can be described as a Sweet Potato, Coriander, Coconut Dal nothing too exciting is happening in my life.
Actually, am in India from the 19th of Feb. That is exciting.
I forgot how lovely it is to be able to hit publish. 🙂
PS: Dancing to Ibn-E-Batuta after midnight and before 4 AM will wake up the neighbours. Know that. Use that.
