Hello to U

Watched Cheenikum and Metro.. two very different movies and I liked them both. Cheenikum is an ordinary love story with an extraordinary dosage of satirical humor, simplicity of the movie appealed to me the most and I am totally obsessed with the title track sung by Shreya Ghosal (sweetness, sensuality, tone – one gifted female) I must have heard it a zillion times already - it's ghooming in my ipod of mind and driving me nuts!!!
Life in a…Metro is more an exploration into relationships. It was a tad short of being truly impressive. It somehow did not add up to a sufficiently moving experience, the whole is not as good as the sum of the parts, nevertheless a good attempt. Shiney Ahuja deserved a more meaty role, was a bit disappointed to see soo little of him on the screen. Pritam's melodius composition surely made up for everything..it ROCKS!! My personal favourites are In Dino and Kar Salaam….

Do people really change, or do we remove the rose tinted glasses, or do we just learn more about them in time?? I suppose people can't keep up the facade forever…sigh!!! I have an amazing intuition about stuff, people, places and how things will transpire, don’t ask me how?? I just know... it is of an immense help, trust me..

Of late I have noticed a wee change in my outlook, I am almost certain that it is pessimism. I still smile and laugh a lot but only that a little bit of negativity is troubling me. Not sure why! There is some fear and sadness. I hope this phase will pass very soon and I will be back to being the eternal optimist who believes that Jo bhi hotha hai accha ke liye hotha hai! I wish I could have me back soon.. I really miss myself.

Kay Kay is GOD…...He has got an awesome voice and every time I hear to his “Kya mujhe pyaar hain?” It really makes me think and the answer, of course is blatantly obvious. His latest song in Raqeeb, Jaane Kaise only proves that he is the BEST!!

Greys Anatomy and Boston Legal are added to my list of guilty pleasures alongside Lemon Tarts and Chocolate Brownies. I miss watching cartoons..I don’t watch too many cartoons these days. I am pretty picky about what draws me to the couch, gotta watch Popeye this weekend..

Guess what!!! I have been soo busy in my own world, I even failed to acknowledge the fact that I have turned 1 on June 17th (atleast my blog did), sooo bad nai...anyhooo better late than never.. A belated Happy ding-dings to me and myself… Wow how time goes by...so far, blogging has been an awesome thing…Thank you so much to all who has dropped by with crits or encouraging comments. Time is something that isn't cheap and I appreciate that you choose to spend a little here :)

Yeh jo zindagi ki kitaab hai.....

Snow bench

Yeh jo zindagi ki kitaab hai ye kitaab bhi kyaa kitaab hai
kahin ek haseen saa Khvaab hai kahin jaan-levaa azaab hai
[azaab=torment/anguish]

kahin chhaanv hai kahin dhoop hai kahin aur hi koi roop hai
kayi chehare is mein chupe hue ik ajeeb si yeh naqaab hai

kahin kho diyaa kahin paa liyaa kahin ro liyaa kahin gaa liyaa
kahin cheen leti hai har Khushi kahin meharabaan behisaab hai

kahin aasoon ki hai daastaan kahin muskuraahaton ka bayaan
kahin barqaton ki hai baarishen kahin tishnagii behisaab hai
[bayaa.N=tale; barqat=prosperity/good fortune; tishnagii=thirst]

Yeh jo zindagi ki kitaab hai ye kitaab bhi kyaa kitaab hai ...

Weekends

I’m sitting here staring out the window as the rain pours down and I can’t help but smile. In fact, I want the rain to get heavier and I want it to continue for the next two days – that way I won’t feel guilty about my plans. Now, please don’t get me wrong. I love a nice, sunny weekend but there is something quite self indulgent about just lying on the couch with a hot cuppa and a good book and at times the remote control for company while a wintry storm pounds the windows. You can kid yourself that, because of the weather you can’t really do anything else but settle in for some quality time with Brad Pitt, George Clooney and likes. I’ve been soo busy lately that this weekend the only commitment I’m making is to the television and some books I got from the Library couple of weeks back. I think every so often there is absolutely nothing wrong with doing nothing. Bring on the rain!! Have a great week….

Recent Learnings -
Secrets are always fun to hear but ultimately the responsibility of keeping a secret can be too much, even for a well-intentioned person like me. As a friend once told me secrets are something you tell people one at a time. Is liye tho soch rahi hoon ki I should give up the momentary titillations of a good piece of gossip and live in comfortable ignorance.

Here’s something to tickle your funny bone :)
Ek Gadha: Yaar, mera maalik mujhe bahut maarta hai
Dusara Gadha: Tho tum bhaag kyun nahi jata
Pehla Gadha: Bhaag to jaata par yahan future bada bright hai ... maalik ki khoobsurat beti jab shararat karti hai tho maalik kehta hai, "teri shaadi gadha se kar dunga...!" bas isi umeed mein baitha hoon.

Famous quotes by Navjot Singh Sidhu
Tuesday, June 05, 2007
siddu

That ball went so high it could have got an airhostess down with it.

There is light at the end of the tunnel for India, but it's that of an incoming train which will run them over.

Experience is like a comb that life gives you when you are bald.

This quote was made after Ganguly called Dravid for a run and midway sent him back and Dravid was run out in the third test against the West Indies at Barbados. "Ganguly has thrown a drowning man both ends of the rope."

Sri Lankan score is running like an Indian taximeter.

Statistics are like miniskirts, they reveal more than what they hide.

Wickets are like wives - you never know which way they will turn!

He is like Indian three-wheeler, which will suck a lot of diesel but cannot go beyond 30

The Indians are going to beat the Kiwis! Let me tell you, my friend that the Kiwi is the only bird in the whole world, which does not have wings!

As uncomfortable as a bum on a porcupine

The ball whizzes past like a bumblebee and the Indians are in the sea.

The Indians are finding the gaps like a pin a haystack.

The pitch is as dead as a dodo.

Deep Dasgupta is as confused as a child is in a topless bar!

The way Indian wickets are falling reminds of the cycle stand at Rajendra Talkies in Patiala one falls and everything else falls!

Indian team without Sachin is like giving Kiss without a Squeeze.

You cannot make omelettes without breaking the eggs.

Deep Dasgupta is not a Wicket Keeper, he is a goalkeeper. He must be given a free transfer to Manchester United.

He will fight a rattlesnake and give it the first two bites too.

One, who doesn't throw the dice, can never expect to score a six.

This quote was made after Eddie Nichols, the third umpire, ruled Shivnarayan Chanderpaul 'NOT OUT' in the second test at Port of Spain "Eddie Nichols is a man who cannot find his own buttocks with his two hands."

Anybody can pilot a ship when the sea is calm.

Nobody travels on the road to success without a puncture or two.

You got to choose between tightening your belt or losing your pants.

The cat with gloves catches no mice.

Age has been perfect fire extinguisher for flaming youth.

You may have a heart of gold, but so does a hard-boiled egg.

He is like a one-legged man in a bum kicking competition.

The third umpires should be changed as often as nappies and for the same reason.

Kumble's bowling at the moment is flat as a Dosa.
