About the movie ‘Public Enemies’

I’ve just seen the trailer of this wonderful movie starring Johnny Depp. Releasing at a time when banks are facing public’s ire, the story of criminals who robbed banks during the great depression(I ain’t gonna capitalize the G and D ’cause it ain’t great anymore :P) would definitely be a big hit. The trailer has Johnny Depp saying this to a customer “We are here for the bank’s money, not yours. Put it away.” Another movie I am waiting for Micheal Moore’s movie about the bankers who caused the current crisis. Good time to cash in on the anger against the bankers.

From iPhone

Watching Monster-in-Law on TV and writing this crap to check the wordpress app on my iPhone. Thinking I am jobless? Ads are playing on the TV. That’s why!!!

Okay. That’s a photo of the London Eye that I took the other night 😉

Crossroads never end!!

Or to be more precise(?): No matter what road you take, you will reach there. And there you stand…contemplating about the direction to move in. One line of thought says that you need to know the direction you are moving in and the goal you are moving towards while there’s another line of thought which says that it’s the journey that matters in the end. I would prefer the second one and I will take it one peg at a time.

Do men really cry? Matt says:”I reckon men cry at odd times because they withhold the tears at more obvious times – it has to leak out some time but social conditioning frequently hinders this.” Perfectly true!! I have experienced something similar recently during a conversation when my eyes suddenly started to water enough to make them flash. ^__^

Share your experiences too!!

WIP

Warning: This is a WIP(Work in Progress)

Every time I start writing a post and try to think of a title, I can’t think of one. Lemme hope that i will be able to come up with a title by the end of this post.

  • As i frittered away the night to write this blog, a question flashed in my mind. How much of our daily time do we spend ( or waste? ) on checking/re-checking/re-re-checking mails or on googling for trivial stuff? I heard about this word ‘Infomania‘ today. When i looked at the wiki pages, i felt that it’s meaning was somewhat incomplete. Shouldn’t infomania encompass a more wider range of activities carried over the internet? ( Mind it. I didn’t say computer 😀 )
  • On an unavoidable visit to a temple in India, I was awestruck by the way some trusts are building temples and milking money from people. I got a feeling that the number of babas has definitely increased over the past decade. There seems to be real (un)healthy competition in that profession as well. Why don’t parents consider this as a lucrative profession for their kids? A profession that offers every possible comfort that one can possibly think of.
  • Look back into the past? It ain’t a crime. Sum up what you have done over the last few years. Cling to it! Nah! On a starting note, I definitely seem to have a wider range of memories from my short stint at TML. Experiences, the traces of which are no longer in your mind but nevertheless have made you learn something out of them. Whether it was related with me trying to communicate across in a language that I haven’t spoken much often or to those moments when I tried to handle those larger than life contraptions which could be sold more easily than many other things in India. Ah! They could be sold easily as we didn’t have a choice. You had to pick the best among the worst. And slowly, i guess that’s changing and the pioneers of the indian automobile evolution have woken up and took note of this fact. (No offence meant)
  • You intend to concentrate on something. But, your mind doesn’t slacken it’s grip from what you perceive as unimportant. Your mind’s blocked. It’s in such a ravaged state that you cannot get it to concentrate on any other task. And all that you could do is write this crap. You aren’t sure about the one thing that’s on top of your mind. On a closing note, let me tell ya that I tried hard to pick up some ingredients that i could add to the cauldron of thoughts in my mind. Now, when i read the above post, I can be sure that the reader doesn’t get the original flavor of those thoughts.

P.S: Your comments would make this post even more fuzzier.

Start doing!!

I had this opportunity( Let’s not call it compulsion for the time being.) to listen to a person talk about commitments and the like. Though a selective digestion of its contents might have made some impression on me, this long-winded talk tended to take me off the hook. I am not sure if anyone really enjoys listening to these kind of things where you lose the patience to stare across and let your wandering mind take-off on its course. Even the “soft-skills workshop” lot fall in this category. Here, atleast, you are better off as it’s some kinduva classroom setting and you can pretend to take notes while you can actually draw sketches, scribble something like this, etc.

It’s kinda hard to push these into your head just by shooting across bullets on a screen intertwining them with stronger sound waves for more than an hour.

And later, i see this ad from IBM about innovation with a tagline ‘Stop talking’.

Now. I am thinking. Was it really a futile exercise on his part? Was he really not able to send across his point?? Yeah, he did I guess.

What If

What if there was no light.
Nothing wrong, nothing right.
What if there was no time?
And no reason or rhyme?
What if you should decide
That you don’t want me there by your side.
That you don’t want me there in your life.

What if I got it wrong?
And no poem or song..
Could put right what I got wrong,
Or make you feel I belong
What if you should decide
That you don’t want me there by your side
That you don’t want me there in your life.

Oooooh, that’s right
Let’s take a break jump over the side
Oooooh, that’s right
How can you know it if you don’t even try?
Oooooh, that’s right

Every step that you take
Could be your biggest mistake
It could bend or it could break
But that’s the risk that you take
What if you should decide
That you don’t want me there in your life.
That you don’t want me there by your side.

Oooooh, that’s right
Let’s take a breath jump over the side.
Oooooh, that’s right
How can you know it when you don’t even try?
Oooooh, that’s right

Oooooh, that’s right
Let’s take a breath jump over the inside
Oooooh, that’s right
You know that darkness always turns into light
Oooooh, that’s right..

P.S: Influenced by my friend and co-blogger Sreejith’s blog, posted above are the lyrics of a song by Coldplay.

A really inspiring song huh??

Randomness and Chance

Aptly being posted in the “Random Scribble” category. 😀

It’s mid-night. No need to write down the date(You can see it). And I can’t help but appreciate the fact that Life inspired Movies. And Movies inspire Life. Whoever said that,salaam aleykum. On this day, after yet another attempt at the ‘great and fatal’ mystery a.k.a riddle a.k.a “WORDS CAN’T SAY WHAT IT IS”, I am here. Infront of a computer, reminiscing a movie I have seen , and recollecting some stupendous dialogues, I try to comprehend the mystery of life ( a.k.a movies ?? ) and the exam.

This is not just “Something That Happened.” This cannot be “One of those things…” This, please, cannot be that. And for what I would like to say, I can’t. This Was Not Just A Matter Of Chance. Ohhhh. These strange things happen all the time.

“Strange things happen all the time.”And all I would like to think is that, this, indeed, was just a matter of chance.
