HAM AAPKE HA KAUN

yesterday i was surfing the channels and started watching..ham aapke hain kaun/ Whenever we watch this movie..my husband always wishes that we have a family like this and the same wish was once expressed by my brother also. This is such a lovely movie.with family values and magical romance.Most of the people always think that movies show us the wrong ways and opulent living only, but if we want to see, this movie advocates many good things........
 Dresses are all the time decent and wearable and according tot he occasions.The head of the family wants to marry his nephew with a good girl and when he sees his friend's sweet daughter, he finalises her.though she is not as rich as they are, so she cant bring a dowry,nor she could have been accustomed to their grand life style. But he wants a girl, who is well mannered, affectionate , intelligent and  caring from a cultured family, so who could be better than Pooja whose father is a teacher(not the modern ones)....his criteria for a li…

VALUES

The biggest strength of our life are our values, traditions, relations and certain rules which we follow wheth.er we like or not।Now a days when I see people justifying everything; like saying-Ramayana is outdated or when boys are not like Rama why should girls be expected to behave like Seeta ,i feel surprised at their ignorance.Ramayana can still solve most of ourproblems if we go by it.
Why otherwise so many relationship management books are getting so popular or why so much importance being given to stress management.Its upto us where we find solution either going to the new age classes or going back to the roots.
Why so many youngsters are delving into spritual field and trying to find the knowledge and truth ? This is not their age to go into that specially in todays busy times when nobody has time even for families. The reason is that this generation wants to go away from the rules and regulations because they want to be free of everything ,everybody and all responsibilities.Bu…

THE COLLECTOR'S WIFE

This book is written by Mitra Phukan.Its about life in Assam in times of insurgency.The protagonist is Rukmini wife of DC (district collector) Siddhartha. The story is an account of both, how insurgency affects the people and how the life of bureaucrat's wife is..glamour from outside and boring and empty there, as wives have to relocate all the time and they live a life without any friends..how they feel and and cope. and sometimes husbands being too busy or sometime callous even can bring infidelity into a perfect marriage.The way She empathises with the students and analyses their course of actions is very realistic.The small town scenario where everyone is concerned about others'slife more, with rumours abound, and how media plays every incident is quite true to life.
I liked the story because after a long time I read something real, because when I read English authors , I cant identify much with their situations, dilemmas as much as I can here..Its our milieu, our sensibil…

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS

Last year I made a review for my resolutions here, and when i see them, i realise most of them are same today too, and when i read the post, I felt bad that few of my very good blogger friends are on sabbatical..hello Rebel, Nancy, shalom, Aarti,Smriti,deeply dip,Frankly speaking, Poonam Joshi, Tulip,Priya and some I must be missing to name..,.I am missing you all.

In addition to last  year ones I would like to add.....My resolutions are like my wishes...

I would like to enjoy grand children this year....this year will be..rather half year will be devoted to them.

My quest for freedom remains the same, but looking at my life, it seems a distant dream to me, I hope that one day I get it.

I wouldnt fuel the consumerism and buy only what I need, not what i want:)

Neither will over eat, nor will over feed the guests, its my strong feeling that god has given enough for everyone on earth, but few go empty stomach because other few take more than their share. I feel very irritated when peop…

PICNIC TO CHUNAMBER

Image
I had booked for this place through SNAPDEAL in December, but that day it was raining to it was postponed. This weekend they took us there. This place is around 10 km from Pondichery. The beauty of Chunamber lies in having backwaters on one side and beach on the other. It is an island. We took a motor boat and reached there. They have lovely thatched huts there for relaxing and enjoying the waves in front of the beach.Even the rest rooms are also made in the same way.Tea coffee,chips,cold drinks and some rice was available for food.Its a beautiful place .
In our group most of the people were young software professionals. But when we were supplied packed breakfast, , all of them ate it and threw the plate outside on ECR road.and same for the lunch..they littered the place without any care..and the irony is that they were behaving as if they have reached some place in their life..like arrived. I even told the manager from travel agency.GO world Holidays, that as a rule you must keep a b…

FIRST POST IN 2011

This year I have been very late in posting my first post..and I when I had so much to post about:)..just the other day somebody was asking me about  some word from hindi..like what we say in Hindi for some spiritual discourse, and I who pride myself for my Hindi couldnt remember immediately that it is Pravachan, and the same thing happens to English too and its making me feel worried that i am loosing my grip on everything.No more I am comfortable in any language.
Last week i saw two movies too...

BAND BAAJA BARAAT...Its about two young people who want to make it big in life and through hard work and planning, specially the girl, I liked that part where she was insistent that she wouldnt use unauthorised electricity in wedding arrangements.The couple start their wedding arrangement services and are successful thru their hard work, and then happens the same story where if a boy and girl work together, they fall in love and the second half is about how they sort it out.The movie is ent…
