When you love something/someone it makes u weak...

An excerpt from 'Fountainhead', about why Dominique wants to stay in solitude..

'If I found a project, an idea or a person I wanted-I'd have to depend on the whole world. Everything has strings leading to everything else. We're all so tied together, we're in a net, the net is waiting and we're pushed into it by one single desire. You want a thing and its precious to you. Do you know who's standing ready to tear it out of your hands? You can't know, it may be so involved and so far away but someone is ready and you are afraid of them all. And you cringe and you crawl and you beg and you accept them-just so they'll let you keep it.'

Jes thought of putting it here as I found it deep.

Hiyaaaa everybody!!


I am totally engrossed these days in this book which most of my class mates read when they were in school...but me thinks the book is timeless and I absolutely adore it- 'Fountainhead' by Ayn Rand.

I am half way through it and everytime I start reading I jes can't put it down..and yet when I notice the number of pages I have read I get disappointed that it would finish soon!

The story revolves around our hero 'Howard Roark, Architect'.. the man really ROCKS, his indifference towards people he doesn't like( rather can't like), who he thinks aren't even worthy of his disapproval or hatred. He's jes plain...mute to them.

I was talking to my mom abt the book and trying to explain her what's it about...I said 'It's about those people who are too good for their times or those who are so good that an average person either doesn't understand them or fails to appreciate them' and in my mind I was thinking 'Jes like me' and then suddenly I heard ma saying 'jes like me' and then my bro who was over hearing echoed 'yeah man...JUST LIKE ME...'

Why ?

Why is that my hardwork is not recognised, despite my sincerest efforts...
Why is it that my most beloved people sometimes don't trust me...
Why is that I find life meaningless so often..
Why is it that I am not able to decide...
Why is it that I can't remain without being judgmental about situations...
Why is it that its difficult for me to like too many people..
Why is that I feel its okay to think about yourself and be selfish , if you aren't hurting others or being unfair...
Why is it that I feel guilty about my beliefs and my decisions..

Is there a test to get to know if you are a bad soul, if you need to drastically change yourself..

Isn't life meaningless if I can't make those who are close to me happy, if I can't bring smiles to their faces, if I can't earn their trust...

Parineeta is a love story set in the Kolkatta ( India) of 1960�s.

Saw the movie, first day- last show. It lives upto its expectations.
The movie has such beautifully depicted subtle romance between Saif Ali Khan and the new girl ( can�t recall her name), that it touches a chord somewhere.

I absolutely adore Saif in the movie. The guy is becoming handsome by the day.
The new girl has done a good job too.

�Parineeta� has 1960�s Kolkatta, captured in a lot of detail. The clothes they wear, their houses, the Vintage cars and the night club ( called Moulin Rouge) where the girls wear Sarees and go.

And yes I loved the song with Saif travelling in a train which could only belong to that era. The wooden interiors � its steam engine hissing through the lush green surroundings�.. leaves the viewer totally lost in the era and the movie.

By the way, any comments on Mr. and Mrs Smith? I am planning to watch it soon�reviews would be most welcome!

Bunty Aur Babli- A BUBBLY movie!!

MUSIC : 8/10
To begin with the movie has very peppy numbers. Kajra re , kajra re is an unusual 'item number', if you could call it that! Aishwarya looks cute in the number. The theme song � Bunty aur Babli� also has foot tapping music.

I especially liked the clothes that Rani is wearing. Over all very colorful outfits

PLOT: 4/10
The story hasn�t been worked upon at all. It is an obvious inspiration of �Catch Me if you can� but the script writer hasn�t gone through the trouble of explaining how Bunty and Babli go about conning ppl ( they are only shown running from one place to another wt ppl trying to get hold of them). Any details how that was happening is left to the audience�s imagination.

CAST: 9/10
Loved the onscreen chemistry of decent boy Abhishek Bachhan and bubbly, naughty Rani.

OVERALL- enjoyable but please leave home any expectations that you may have and then try watching's good entertainment otherwise.

To all my blog friends....

Resting in peace...!

..hey not literally..atleast not yet!

Was down with Viral, last three days and so I took a nice long break from work..blissfully coughed my way thru the nights not bothered abt what was happenning at work for once!

Actually, I was driving myself crazy past few months. Sometimes I feel my physical energy levels just can't match upto my mental energy..I have a thousand things on my mind and a dozen creative ways to do all of them...a thousand clothes to buy and a dozen shades in many authors I have been wanting to read..( I am currently reading three books together- Fountain Head, The Alchemist and Malgudi Days!!)....
Maybe life thought..I was getting too much out of it..more than my share maybe so I was made to fall flat on my bed with nothing better to do than to sneeze, cough and shiver in the cold( with the temperature soaring 42 degrees otherwise!!)
But guess what, I had fun doing that as well! I watched Tv to my heart's content, listened to my fav music, played Pictionary and Monopoly with family and am back at work today...with more energy to do a lot more!
