Like Humans do

Like Humans Do

For millions of years, In millions of homes
A man loved a woman, A child it was born
It learned how to hurt and it learned how to cry
Like Humans Do
I'm breathin in
I'm breathin out
So slip inside this funky house
Dishes in the sink
The TV's in repair
Don't look at the floor
Don't go up the stairs

I'm achin
I'm shakin
I'm breakin
Like Humans Do

I work & I sleep & I dance & I'm dead
I'm eatin, I'm laughin & I'm lovin myself
We're eatin off plates & and we kiss with our tongue
Like Humans Do

I'm breathin in
I'm breathin out
So slip inside this funky house
Dishes in the sink
The TV's in repair
Don't look at the floor
Don't go up the stairs

I'm achin
I'm shakin
I'm breakin
Like Humans Do

...am putting these lyrics here for no particular reason except that I guess I like the feel of this song....

My first earthquake alone....

Yahooooo!
Today I experienced the first earthquake of my life when I was all by myself in my house ( coz i stay alone ). The thrill of this incident was something else....

When the tremors came..I was taking out clothes from my almirah and thought I weighed down too heavily upon it and hence it was shaking. For 30secs I tried holding it and making the thing stable...but ofcourse it wouldnt behave...and then suddenly I heard ppl screaming outside.."earthquake..earthquake". And then started the series of dilemnas I had to face...I was in my pyjamas and couldn't decide if I should run out like that..so I DECIDED to grab a towl...then I wondered what if I am rendered homeless and if I should carry some dough..DECIDED otherwise...and then it occurred to me if I die atleast I shud be able to inform my parents and bid them adieu.... so I grabbed my mobile,....also thought what if ppl enter my house while I am lying dead outside and find my lingerie strewn all over...so I locked my house and FINALLY raaaaan downstairs for dear life....

By then things had already settled down and it was too late to die I guess...the thrill was good as long as it lasted..and frankly it left me exhausted with the no of decisions I had to take in those 120 seconds... ;-)

Cindrella Man

Cindrella Man- The movie is touching, more than any I have seen in the past one year. Really liked watching Russel Crowe in action…

The movie definitely has a message…a message that urges you to ‘FIGHTBACK’ in life…and not give up on your beliefs and values in the worst of times. What’s important is to be MENTALLY TOUGH and not let anybody in this world ANYBODY to bog you down with their own notions of truth/reality.

Also, I could so identify with the way Crowe was so passionate about his game (the way I am about my work). His passion actually stemmed from something very basic-hunger/bid to survive…for me that drive is basic too and that is my freedom.

I also loved the way Crowe chooses to respond to people’s attempt to brainwash him by calling Boxing a killer game and him a murderer. Instead of getting sentimental and giving up, he again countered strongly with his reasoning. The anticlimax to that situation was very interesting.

In many ways the movie reminded me of another beautiful work ‘Life is beautiful’. It’s a must watch!
