DESI BOYS

When i saw Desi boys i was wondering.why films fail or hit? because this movie was quite entertaining, and it never got mentioned anywhere, whereas many worse movies got so much talked about and some got even awards...sometimes i feel that in every sphere of life its not meritocracy but many other things....
This is a movie about two friends in London who get the pink slip in the times of recession and take up the job of male entertainers to sustain themselves.The best part of this movie is Anupamkher, he just lights the screen with his role and the most jarring is Chitrangda.neither her character in the movie, nor her acting, everything is so artificial....true the movie is comedy, so nothing serious about it, but even there she is not tolerable.Akshay, Deepika and John..they all essay their roles effortlessly...
Now a days Sony has really some good serials on air..I am loving..Parvarish...the interactions between husband wife, father and son and parents and children all are shown how …

Life is precious or is it?

Recently I went to Nethaji Mercy Home..and what I saw there was shocking and amazing both. As I have blogged earlier too about them..this orphanage is managed by a couple who look after the children as their own..its their main life..not a part time job.Every time I go there, I see a new infant, somebody left there..this time there was a boy who was left there at the age of 9 days and who didint have a limb and a hand and he couldnt swallow. Parents were poor and couldnt look after a special child. So this couple took them got his mouth operated and now they will get him operated for hand and limb whenevr they get enough money ...a few lakhs.The child was now 7 months old and very attatched to father(head of the orphanage) and was smiling in his lap.
Now as soon as I heard this, immediate response in my mind was..how cruel on part of parents to leave their child here and how big in heart these people are who can love a deformed child so much?..But when I think over, my mind debates..…

hellooooooo...

hellooooooo...whats happening..daily either a child commits suicide because he was chided by teachers or elders or denied something or kills someone like teacher, friend or parents even.In Chennai a boy killed his teacher for reprimanding him.
I feel very sad at the thought of this generation going so haywire....though lot of factors are contributing to this aggression, but the most responsible for all this are parents.....
Parents are over pampering the kids, giving them everything what they demand is making them soft target. They cant handle a no from any quarter.
Its a wake up call for all young parents...pleaseeeeeeeeeee.....dont think that indulging the child is love....You are all taking the easy way out, because giving in is much easier than holding and telling the children whys. who can invest so much time?....
Give the children what they need, not what they want, they will also reach a age when they can indulge..everything has a time....teach them delayed gratification, good beha…

Longevity

Whenever i read in the paper that scientists are doing research to increase the age of human beings, I feel exasperated. I mean why increase the quantity, why not work towards quality.There are very few people who are above 80 and can contribute anything to..self, family or society. Instead they just live a life of non productivity and sometimes making other's life miserable.
Imagine a son of 65 looking after his parents of 95..is it a pleasant scenario? When one advances in the age ,one looks for a life atleast free of responsibilities, because with ageing, looking after self is also not an easy job.It is enough if one is not dependent on one's children at that time, but taking responsibility for old parents is very difficult. Though it sounds bad, but service to parents also comes with an expiry date.
I have always felt that instead of adding years to life, we must add life to few years. I dont aspire for a long life..never, rather scared of living long.We must live a life of …
