A different Sunday

As for the Sunday, I had decided to sleep till 10am and then carry on with my projects. But things never go the way I plan. Hindrance is usual now. Not worried much about working in evening or night for personal work. What hurts is waking up early, very early on Sundays. I woke up at 5:15am. ;-(

Reason was a religious ceremony. This occurs every year and once in a year. All those who have same surname as my gather at a temple 20km away from my home. Most likely this event gathers a crowd of 50-60 peoples. Earlier it was much more than this. We gather, have some chat, sometimes even play. This event brings us closer.

After preparing and working much for the event, I’ve become too tired. I thought of taking a leave. Nevermind. I’ll get it next time. For now I’ll get some rest and sleep well.

Is this suppose to be “The End”??

Finally after 59 hours of trouble the fight between terrorists and policemens come to an end. For the last two days Mumbai was experiencing what is supposed to be the biggest terrorist attack on India. A very well planned and executed attack that certainly has created an environment full of fear. The whole city was and is still under the shadow of fear.

It hurts me in the way this was handled. As usual the politicians made similar statements what they say after the blasts or terrorist attacks. It is foolish of media to surround them every time such an incidence occurs and in return they get the similar replies. I cannot forget our “Home Minister” who is busy in protecting his home. No actions are taken to prevent such incidences. He is a busy person. He has to also look after his party and breaking up members of opposition. Continue reading →

One day with headache

I am not talking about my boss of work. I am not talking about my team leader(Wait.. there is no team leader). I am not talking about my girlfriend(It’s different from girl-friend. The hyphen clearly marks the difference. What’s more!!! I don’t have one). I am not talking about the beggar who bugs you every time when you are at the bus stop. I am talking about the headache. The one which gives pain in your head.

Yesterday I got a headache. I was on site and suddenly it started. I wasn’t able to have my complete lunch. Even the 2 liters of water. I took rest in my site office and decided to go half day. Well it wasn’t there for me. Some clients were to come on site and hence I had to be there on site. Then in the evening there was unnecessary dispute of the labor contractor and the boss of my work. My headache increased.

It almost happens every time that when I want to leave early, something happens and I have to stay late. I was there on site till 6:45pm. I asked the labor contractor to drop me at bus stop. I was hoping for a seat to sleep. Nope. At least I got a place to stand. I tried to sleep while standing. It’s a very difficult task to do. I wonder how horses manage that.

I came home. Refreshed myself and straight to bed. No dinner, No mails, No talking. Today when I woke up I decided to take a day off. Feeling good now. I’ll take rest for some more time and will try to complete pending work online. There is a lot of it. Only thing I wish is that this headache shouldn’t come again today and ruin things.

Think Nonsense…

When silence talks through sound of music

As the month of November nears, Goa gears up for International film festival. IFFI started on 22nd and will go on till 2nd of December. In spite of being a movie buff I went for the film festival only once. That too without watching a single film. But it’s a great environment out there during the IFFI. Even if you don’t watch movie you’ll still enjoy.

The father of Indian cinema is Dadasaheb Falke. He created fantastic films one after another and gave birth to Indian cinema. That was in 1913. At that time most of the films, well all of the films were silent movies. Expressing through silence seems difficult and it is difficult. But you can express it better than words.

One of his film “Kaliya Mardan” was screened on Sunday. I was not there as usual. I never knew about the screening. Different thing about this screening was that there was live music score in the background of the film. This made the film to come live without any editing or any mixing. I wish I was there. I shouldn’t have missed such an opportunity.

There have been experiments with some old Black and White movies which were turned to Color with surround sound. But they didn’t succeed much unlike this live performance which was appreciated by many. Now if only there was another screening due to lot’s of hype……So that I can go and watch this fantastic mixture.
