Slumdog Millionaire!

Nothing short of Top notch! Cinematography, Camera, Lighting, BGM, Direction, Story - everything top notch. Definitely, one of the best movies released this year and a 'must-see'! 

[Trivia: As soon as I heard the first background music, I asked my friend if ARRahman is the music director. Not knowing, he shrugged vaguely. Apparently, it turns out that indeed ARRahman is the composer. Just that a bit of BGM made me recognise his signature music style proved what a fan am I! Little happiness in life!]

...teaches me that

1) Vampires drive a Volvo

2) Vampires fall in love

3) There are vegetarian Vampires

4) Vampires live forever

5) Some beautiful girls fall for Teen vampires

Bottom-line : Chick flick!

Work is the only known entity, which can make one feel miserable and mirthful, both at the same time, most of the times. As dubious as it sounds, I wonder why I like what I do with fervor. When I step into most meetings at workplace, I feel like a Gladiator stepping into an arena. I have no idea of what might come from which door.

I work in an environment which demands agility, responsiveness and deftness which would otherwise be required only in the Space station building team at NASA. But I don’t work for NASA. And we aren’t building a space station. Yet I strive.

These days, I have started wondering how much of a fit is the verse 'Life comes at you fast' to my life. More surprising is the fact that this statement fits like a charm when the word 'life' is replaced with 'work'. 

I'll not be the only person in this world if I say I look forward to vacation desperately. And I'll say exactly this when asked any time of the year, no matter how the days look like. Apparently, seeking vacation seems like a universal birth right. 

An average IT professional gets about 2 weeks of vacation an year. At times, I wonder if it'd make one happier when work and vacation switch roles.  That is, every year one should be granted about 2 weeks of work and 50 weeks of vacation. 

Though hypothetical, would one have enough stuff to do for 50 weeks an year and call all that as part of vacation? Doing nothing in life is as challenging as keeping oneself sane while being busy. I reckon doing nothing has to be one of the toughest things in life. 

My imbecile brain invents that humans hate idling as much as they seem to love it. One needs to be occupied in their life. The seek for vacation and the thirst to slug is shallow. Being busy is the solace. 

To earn or to learn, one needs the brain to be put to use!

Epitome of digression!

Quantum of Solace...

...not even a quantum of sense.


(Other than watching the 12.01 am show, a literal first day first show, nothing was fascinating!)

Theory of Supportivity!

Women are more supportive to men than men are to women. That indeed makes men seem more blessed than women, in spite of all the efforts that women take to be more supportive than men. With less travails, men being supported makes them seem blessed, but they actually are cursed for they are sought after to take more efforts to be supportive. Yet, men dont take such curses for long by one woman, as another comes in, only to prove the 'supportive' theory in the first place.

Role Models..

...shows how to be funny when one's life is fucked up. And that too when the redress is to spend supportive hours with random kids. 

Rated R and a must watch for kids!

Madagascar 2 escape 2 africa

...takes precedence over life. And a few other things.
