Every day when you are made to realise that you are not good, there is something gravely wrong with you, you are not as per someone's requirement then you just feel like killing yourself

Some say love by Bette Midler

Heard this song few days back..really amazing..soothing music and lovely lyrics.
Some say love it is a river
that drowns the tender reed
Some say love it is a razer
that leaves your soul to blead

Some say love it is a hunger
an endless aching need
I say love it is a flower
and you it's only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying
that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love in the spring
becomes the rose

Movies galore....

Of late I am on movie watching spree and have watched some already –seen and some never-seen-before-by-me movies.

Will talk more or less about the ones I saw for the first time.

Foremost I saw Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part 1. Well like with most of the movies being made from books this one too had the same problem. It seemed to move too quickly. Having read the book, especially the last part so many times I somehow had every scene already drawn in my mind and maybe that’s why it seemed that everything was happening so fast without much detail. Obviously they cannot show everything in 2 n ½ hour. Nevertheless it was an ok types movie and I am really looking forward to the last installment. So Goblet of fire and the first two installments still remain the ones that I like the most in this movie series.

Second was Mr and Mrs Smith. Somehow I never liked Angelina Jolie, so surprisingly (I thought it out after watching this movie) this was the first movie that I ever saw of this girl. And man I can understand why she is so popular. She definitely have an attractive face, won’t call pretty or beautiful but her face has a kind of sensuality in it. Well since Ocean’s trilogy is one of my favorite movie series so I anyway like Brad Pitt a lot. He has got some style. It’s a story two killers who are married together for 5-6 years (that’s what Brad Pitt says, not 5 nor 6 ,its 5-6) but both of them don’t know that the other is a killer too until they are setup by the their respective agency to kill each other. So then start the cat n mice fight to kill each other until they realize they cannot kill each other and then they combine to protect each other. Well the movie started well but the second half lost the charm. But their chemistry and first half was really worth watching.

Third was a highly recommended movie by the name “500 days of Summer”. And as the narrator says at the start its not a regular boy-girl love story. The first interesting thing about this movie is that its only after 5 minutes of the movie that you understand that Summer is the name of the female lead (at least that was the case with me as I have not read the reviews earlier) and after that the title made sense 500 days spent for a girl. Second interesting thing was the character of the little sister of the male lead. She was barely 10-12 year old girl who acted as his counselor. Her role was really amazing and the way she advised him on his love life and after the break up with the girl, was quite impressive. So this is a movie everyone who has loved and lost should see in fact not necessary for you to have lost but you will understand the essence more if you have lost ;). It’s a story that shows the 500 days in life of Tom starting from the first day he met the girl but the interesting part was the days were shown in random order. I don’t know but this movie somehow is one that could be both helpful and dangerous for someone who is trying to forget someone…lol

So that’s all for the day..I know an update on the books is still pending and definitely on my cards but till then enjoy :)

As I turned 26....

Ok I know I was supposed to write something on it the day it actually happened but that day I could only muster that post which was not that happy -happy.
So after exactly a week has passed I am here to share how it has been so far.

Well on that day my beloved elder sis called me (she is currently in some other town pursuing her PhD) and asked me "so 26 now ? Till 25 its fine but 26 is like you start feeling older now" And later another friend called me up and said more or less the same thing.

To both of them I told that I don't think so in fact I din't feel anything different. It seems the same, neither more young nor more old. I told them that may be turning 30 will be a milestone and we may not be same after that but before that I don't think life will anyway change while we are still in the 20's.

So as the tradition has been going on since last few years, My mom cooked the season's first Gajar Halwa (a sweet dish made from Carrots) and also cooked a lot of other delicacies.
Apart from that there were no other celebrations that day.

But since Tuesday onwards till Thursday , every day I had a party.
First on Tuesday with two of the people who for the last few months have made my life in the office so memorable. One a very pretty girl who is as sweet in nature and company as she is in appearance and the second is a guy who can make anyone laugh with his antics. Unfortunately it was the last of the many memorable eating rendezevous we three had in the last few months as he moved to some other firm.
Second was next day when I had to bring sweets and snacks for my office colleagues and lastly the day after me and my team mates went to have lunch together.

All in all its going fine and I have a lot of things planned for the coming year about which I will be updating soon....

Calender of my own...

I have decided to make a calender of my own with pictures that I will take throughout the year.
Initially I only plan to compile anything that I come across but later I would like to improvise it to either a theme based or at least each photo specific to that month.

Nothing important but still...

I don't know but I feel both sad as well as contented that she din't wish me today. I am not feeling angry but at the same time I don't know I want to not-complain but share with someone. I know she might have forgotten it and I deserve to be forgotten. And its not that she is the only one who hasn't wished but somehow all my expectations n wishes are most from her even after everything.

The worst is I don't even have the right to complain to her  :( :( :( :(

Procrastinating ....

There are so many things that I think of doing everyday but I always procrastinate.

I have to:

  • Play my guitar and pick up something new on it.  - Good thing is that I can still play all the old stuff that I know.
  • Get my bicycle repaired and ride it daily - Hmmmm.
  • Exercise - something that will make my mom so happy.
  • Try to learn dance myself - Or atleast join some dance class.
  • Learn and practice Sketching from online tutorials - I told my folks that I will sketch the running horse that they were fidning so hard to buy. But I din't and they bought it from the market :(
  • Ofcourse write my blog - My cell phone broke down so I am currently using my older cell phone and GPRS is not working on it :( So that puts a break on whatever little micro blogging I was doing.

For almost a month I have been continously working at office well past my office time so that again gives me a lot of excuse for not doing any of the stuff I wrote above.

But thank god despite all this, one thing I am able to do religiously is read some novels, which reminds me that it has been long since I updated about the books that I have read/reading.

Good that gives me a certain topic to write about :). So see you soon.
