Random Thoughts....

Hi!
I'm sitting by the window, a rare occasion when I get time to reflect on the lil things in life that I mite fail to notice in my daily grind. I was in a hurry yesterday n careless as I am I cut my right thumb in my hurry to wash a very sharp knife. My aunt was petrified to see blood in that amount flow due to the huge gash n applied Haldi on it. Thankfully it stopped bleeding in 5 mins n I resumed my chores but every time I did something it would start bleeding again. I don't wanna share this but before I proceeded it was important I shared the incident so you could understand my thoughts that follow...
..I did many things yesterday and was able to notice how a tiny gash effected my ability to do the daily chores. I was unable to wash my hand for starters, I could not stir the curry with my right hand since you need a thumb to hold a spoon... I went ahead to comb my hair but again I faced a problem holding my brush that again requires a thumb.


I encountered many such challenging moments like opening a Halls packet, squeezing a lemon, holding a pen to write....opening and closing the lid of a bottle of water, eating a chapati.. I couldn't even twist my lipstick :P... I love bowling n was looking forward to a good game wid friends but could not do that too.... there is nothing I'm trying to say from this post other than my deepest appreciation and gratitude for being blessed with a healthy body, all other problems feel so insignificant when I realize how lucky I am...


Just a small cut could limit my actions which makes me think how thousands of people overcome their disabilities, how millions of people take on every challenge life throws at them n still move on... I feel lucky n wanna spend every moment njoying this blessing called LIFE :) For all those reading this just wanna wish you  all a Happy n Healthy Life, Njoy it to the fullest coz Life Rocks!!! :D

Have a magical day!

Movie Review: Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola

Hiya People,
Today had gone for the premier show of the movie Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola> When I was invited for this movie by my best friend, I was not quite sure of what to expect from this movie since I've never even watched the trailor of this movie. All I knew was it's gonna be a dhamaal movie and nother reason for me watching the premier show was Anushka is one of my fav actresses so was quite eager to see her in yet another bindaas n mastibhara role.


Speaking bout the movie the movie has a good cast, Pankaj Kapoor is as we all know is a marvelous actor and he is the one who has pulled this entire movie. As the movie starts there are moments when one gets a bit confused as to where is it heading... they have picked a very sensitive topic regarding farmers, their land and governments role in their survival or otherwise which we all are aware of. The entire movie is in bits and pieces, Anushka has no role in it...since she is a fab actress she has tried to do her best from whatever character was assigned to her, Imraan again has done a good job but what is his role in this movie one wonders.. it just feels like a flux of small scripts all put together in a haphazard manner...Many loose ends to the movie... If you do plan to watch do keep your head aside... no logic to this movie....the best part in this movie is the pink buffalo ...reminds me of Akshay Kumaar somehow :) and the other part is the songs are nice while all of 'em have very catchy beats, I liked the songs Khamakha, Lootnewale and Title Track ... TC...Njoy

My Rating - 3/10

Tare Zameen Par










Hiya Friends :):):):):):):)
Yeah am sure you've already guessed that am in super spritzzz :D the reason is I had a fabbbbb evening ...haan bhai batati hoon kya hua....In our vicinity few eager and ambitious women have taken a responsibility upon them to teach young children Shlokas, various games and involve them in activities that will build their overall personality which also includes Dancing, Singing, Art & Craft etc.This class is know as Sanskaar Bharti .
My mother who is a G.D Arts graduate from J.J.School of Arts, Mumbai believes in giving back to the society and so in her spare time imparts her knowledge without charging anything, among the many children she teaches there is this one particular group of children from Sanskaar Bharti she teaches every Wednesday, due to some reason she was unable to go today and asked me if I could teach these children today. So as planned I went there wid all the craft material as I had to teach 'em very simple Collage. The topic was a house wid a roof, doors, windows and a sun :)
The children were aged between 4-10 years. I went a bit early and discussed few basic things wid the volunteers rather fabulous teachers... I sat there and watched every lil one come in ...keep their bags in one corner very systematically and then go and sit in a neat line...The teacher called out to two 4 yr olds, one a cute girl in a pink dress with a pony and the other a very very tiny boy...he was quite tiny :) The class started with Sanskrit Shlokas and Ganpati Stotra... I was stunned to see both these tiny kids say all Shlokas with ease and watch the entire class follow... and here I use to take pride since I know all the Aarti's... a 4 yr old know's more than me :O....

Later I showed 'em how to do the collage...when I was bout to show them how to stick the door...I casually said we all know door right, we come in and go out from it to which I got a very innocent reply "But Didi I go inside from the window" :D it was such an innocent statement...Again as I showed them 2 windows a cutie baby doll piped in "But Didi I have 4 windows in my house not 2" :D I said okkk we'll do 2 more in next class... As they got divided into groups and sat pasting their collage I went around trying to register their actions and reactions...they all looked sooooo cute n totally engrossed in their work...we adults give huge statements while talking bout dedication but when you watch a 4yr old trying to apply glue on a paper and try to stick it in the center of other paper...making sure it did not stick to his/her hand...exact 4 dots of glue were applied and the door came before the window....nothing can beat that dedication...really! :)

There were almost 60 kids and each of 'em was so eager to show me their collage...few had even painted birds and flowers around their house...one tiny girl came to me wid her collage and asked me "Didi my teacher said this is not right" I looked at her picture and smiled becoz she had pasted her windows outside the house... I sat down and explained to her what her mistake was and gave a new set...she came back with a grim face and a new collage, as I looked at her and said "Yes! perfect, lovely!" I just can't put into words how her face lit up...she went back to her place jumping :D....
Later a smart tiny fellow walked upto me and showed me his collage...it was the best of the lot and I smiled and said so...he waited for a min and went back and again came with birds on his paper, again I said good...he went again and came back with sky...then with trees...then with flowers...this went on for few mins...his trip back and forth...finally he came with mountains on his paper and no more space left....again I said very good!...he looked at me and said then when will I get a STAR??? :):):):):) that was the moment I understood he just wanned a star from me on his paper saying Very Good...I recollected the movie Taare Zameen Par as I watched these lil one chatter...giggle...scribble and laugh like there is no tomorrow.... am a lil mushy inside as I write...I had many such beautiful moments wid the kids...one even asked me how was I so tall :D...the best part of the evening was as I bid these smiling innocent faces good bye one girl gave a Thumsup sign and said you did a good collage Didi...while nother one said you're a good teacher...few more came and shook my hand saying good...nice....and the likes and here I was thinking I'll tell 'em what a fab job they did...Kids I tell U :)



On my next visit I'll choreograph their dance on "Mere Desh Ki Dharti" :D will definitely share the experience with you all....till then live life to to the fullest, smile and give a tight hug to your kid..they are the best thing this world has...innocent and pure. Treat every kid like your own coz when you see their sunny faces and eyes shining with hope u'll smile thinking....haan sachmein ..."Taare Zameen Par!"

"Yesterday is gone...Tomorrow is yet to come...but Today is a Gift, that's why it is called PRESENT!"

Gudnite People :)

My thoughts as a human.....as a woman

Hi All,
There is so much rage inside me that am trying to leash, with everything wrong happening around and my sheer helplessness to do anything bout it.... the anger in me has come out on many ocassions and at times it has taken me huge strength to hold myself back, I recollect one incident in my college when me n my friends were playing basketball n there was a group of boys who were looking at us, since we practicing for our matches we were in our uniforms that was a knee length skirt and tee.... there were 3-4 boys the 1st day...the second day 4 more joined in and by the 3rd day they started passing remarks, 5th day I was unexpectedly called for practices and so I was in my usual jeans, tee and a thick leather belt.... as we played merrily oblivious to the world I heard these leaches again n as I turned around I saw almost 15-20 boys sitting on that so called katta... I saw the spirits of my team falter coz those remarks were in no way encouraging  but something that would make a woman uncomfortable, as my girls got a lil embarrassed by the minute and by every comment.. I cant tell you the how hard it was trying to control my anger... as I saw 2 boys get up and circle the length of our court and try to get in the way of my players I knew that's it ... be fore I could see these men or rather beasts touch n make my friends and other girl players feel guilty for playing a simple game of basketball my anger unleashed, having a built of over 5'8" and a structure to make an average male nervous I got hold of one and punched his lights out... I was in such a state of anger that had been piling up that I went on beating that guy and anyone who came in close proximity n finally I removed the thick leather belt I was wearing and went slashing  kicking, punching him from the court till the parking lot..... I wanned every onlooker to know what is the strength of a girl when unleashed and seeing my act all the players also were encouraged and although they didn't beat any but they surrounded me as I bate up that animal... the whole group scattered away like scared mice and I screamed out loud again if I see anyone on this field teasing any girl I swear I'll kill you here itself!.... I was shaking with rage as I went to the changing room..... I am a human n I don't wish to hurt another humanbeing but had I not done that I would have been a witness of a womens dignity slowly burn to ashes... a womens honour....a womens confidence...a womans faith in herself  as woman and as a player....a womans belief that shez free.... a womens innocent laughter....a womens beauty.....a womens strength...all turn to ashes... the next day as I was called for an explanation of my act by the authority I recollect the dialogue from the movie Gulaam " Jab mein aapne aap koh aaine mein dekhoon mujhe aapne aap koh dekhke sharam na aaye!" when I seen in the mirror I don't wanna be ashamed of my existence and that's exactly what I said.

Am not saying every women ...mother....sister....daughter....friend can do something like that but even if u're a male of female don't leave these monsters.... don't ignore....do whatever you can but teach them a lesson..... don't leave 'em, the government will do their part but as a human do your part and trust me the force of mute spectators when turns into a angry roar even the most powerful of beast will have to run...please please please do your bit, don't walk away....please!!!!

Happy New Year!

Hiya Fellas,
Wish you all a Joyous, Healthy and Prosperous New Year! I've been on a crazy shopping spree in my free time as the year came to an end, the past year over all has been a good one for me but when I see the events that have happened in the past year I did not find a reason to rejoice so I did not celebrate the New Year instead prayed with my entire family for the departed souls and made a resolution to do my bit for the Nation whenever n wherever I can. I'm trained in Martial Arts but due to my busy schedule have neglected my daily practices, I've resolved to start doing that with consistency to which I will be adding my weapon training as well, I can't be of any help if I myself am not fit to help myself, so focus on fitness is not a resolution but a resolve.
NO SHOPPING for at least a month is nother resolve I've made n trust me it is gonna be way more difficult to standby than the former one regarding my fitness regime :)

Other than that I have quite a few personal goals that I've been putting off for far too long which I intend to complete by July 2013.... rest all gud...

..Hope this year brings a promising change in the " Mein bhala mera ghar bhala" attitude of we Hindustanis and we stand as one for all the right things and fight hard against the wrong ones on humanitarian grounds.

To end on a very crucial yet cute note wish to share a pic I came across today

Save Tigers!

The innocence just can't be missed in those big eyes, plz do your bit...TC and have a fab year, gudnite.

Love
Priya :)
