The past week, ever since I arrived in Dubai, I've been busy busy running [ in a car driven by everyone but me- i like it like that =D] and have been out from morning till very much after sunset.

But today is a friday. The sunday of here.

The malls [ the life of here], the restaurants are closed. It's time for a laze.

So I must be home. I'd catch up on the calls I missed and need to make but ........ it is the time for a laze. So I'll let them be.

I've spent my morning [ been up since 5 am , I am like that and thankfully so is family so I can create a hulla with the tv and music and fm all at once] watching Indian classic oldies. Coloured.
B & W will have to wait for when I feel more patient.

I saw Parichay this morning, which has been a favourite from childhood. I like how the characters were developed and the movie was very down to earth. No flowery statements of love and yet a few actions were enough to draw it out clearly for the audience.
And the cute kid, Sanjay.

I'm watching Sholay now since I've never seen it properly or completely. I mentioned it once to me Daddy and he remembered it and brought it over without telling us. =D Sweet of him especially since there is a lot I say and he still remembered = D

Back to the movie : I can see why it was a super-duper mega hit. And Helen's dance- WOW. It brought such life and definition to that song. And such ageless dialogues.

Other favourites from those days would have to be

  1. Waqt -good songs and a good cast. Nicely done. A very cute young Shashi Kapoor and Raj Kumar. Attractive *sigh*
  2. Jewel Thief- excellent songs and the wow honton par aisi baat dance sequence.
  3. Mother India- no words for this. A classic classic.
  4. Guide- unconventional storyline, superbly executed with unforgetabble songs.

Then there are the likes of Chupke Chupke, Baaton Baaton mein and Golmaal, good comedies and Amol Palekar at his best [ in my opinion] in the last one.
Good memories.

That is all I can think of from the top of my head. I'm sure Fox would have plenty to add. I need to watch more movies.

Ok so now back to Basanti and Veeru at the water tank.

The air is heavy with it.

Like the dense cool airs of Toronto winters, you can't not notice it as you awaken and step out- feel it hit you right in the face like you expected it to. Its cool presence difficult to miss and yet it makes me smile because it is so lovingly fresh. Like a morning greeting. Just for me.

Yes such is excitment in the air.

Presentation misgivings

Presentation #1: 83.33%

Presentation #2: 91.4%

Presentation #3: 90%

Presentation #4: 76% [the 5 losers who didn't put in ANY damned effort got marks for the efforts of my friend and myself but we were marked as a group of 7 not 2 even though we did the essay+ presentation+arguments+ research. Hope you get horrible presents this Christmas slackers for screwing up MY mark]

I am mourning.

New blog

Obssession with organization has led to the creation of a new blog which will feature my fiction-fact mixtures. This one shall remain as the factual corner. Whenever I update the new blog, ill mention it here.

My new blog:

I am not sure if I should keep my fact-fiction mixes and 'she-stories' here or just transport them to the other blog and delete those entries from here.

Suggesstions anyone?
