Two years back, while I was trying to comb my hair I found the first white hair. At first I thought it’s just a reflection of light from behind. But some days later my sis pointed some white hairs back of my head. I was like… Oh $#@t!!! I am getting older. It was the same time when I just started blogging. I don’t know why I didn’t blog about this.
First white hair is sort of turning point in your life. Often we relate it to experience. Your experience is directly proportional to the amount of white hairs on your head(What about the ones who are bald??). That’s why they say “These white hairs have seen a lot more things than you have.” Try to imagine a character artist saying this line. Becomes more effective. I have been involved in many conversations where this sentence struck.
The sad part of this story is that white hairs are on the verge of extinct. Hair dyes or Hair colors have changed this era. If you find someone with colored hair than he got white hairs(Most probably. I use these two words to save my life). A couple of months back my cousin brother colored his hair with white color. Not all but just the front part. I asked him why?? He said, “Everyone’s is coloring with brown, orange, pink and white is getting extinct. This is to save the whites and to get a different look among others.” True said. The only person with white hair I remember is Mr. Amitabh Bacchan with his white beard. Even the mothers in TV serials now don’t have white hairs. It’s difficult to differentiate who is mother and who is wife if you watch the serial for the first time.
I find it easy to bond and have conversation with white haired persons than youngsters of my age group. Maybe it’s because we are like haired, as in “like skinned” or “like religion”. Kind of Birds of the same feather flock together. They got a lot of experience and I have a big appetite for life experiences. I listen when they talk. Though on the verge of extinction, these white hairs can be found in places called old age homes. I am glad that at least someone is saving the white hairs.
Till you find your first white hair…
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.
A ray of light has two colors at the extremes. Colors are not colors when these two are taken out of the stream. Colors are meaningless but we gave them meanings. Different cultures, different religions have different level of importance to these colors. The only common are two colors. Black and White. Almost everywhere White signifies peace and good whereas Black signifies evil or bad. Though common significance these two “colors” plays important role in many countries.
Somewhere in an unknown place in this world two piglets are born from the same mother. It is unusual as most of the times the number is more than two. One of them was Black and other was White. White was very proud of his color and always teased Black for his color. The aggressive nature of Black always resulted in fights. Their mother was now unable to handle the childrens. She always wanted both of them to stay together. Not just stay together, but happily stay together.
One day a quick brown fox jumps over the fence and starts searching for his lunch. Just then his eyes catch the piglets. There was a dog house with a jammed door but there was no dog. Hence “the lazy dog” doesn’t come in picture. Effort by only one was not enough to open the door. They dash the door together. Door opens where they hide safely. That fox goes away with empty hands. Now both the pigs realize their mistake. They hug and live happily together. Continue reading →
I have started digging and am doing it seriously. It’s a great way to get some good stuff and good friends also. Almost all bloggers know what is the power of digg and what it can do to your blog. So some crap(including the contents of my blog) is digged into this network. The best way to get noticed is to create controversies. I hate the ones which are really unnecessary. Here is one of them.
While digging across I found this story. I was stunned. How can one make a survey of such thing?? They didn’t had any other question?? Why color of Jesus? Why god is also pulled into this “color” thing? I am a Hindu by religion and have faith in god. At the same time I think there is only one god above all religions. It hurts when someone tries to differentiate it based on color.
There are 33 crore god characters in my religion. Everyone has something unique. Some are black, some are blue, some are “white”. But they are praised with just the feeling to pray. The reason to pray may be different. Till date I never heard of single incidence where there was an argument like “Lord Krishna is white and not blue” or “Goddess Kali is not black”. We have fear for our god and that may be the reason behind this.
This is really cheap publicity just to create controversies and get hits. Such cheap things should be stopped. Unknowingly I digged this article instead of burying. Now i am thinking of creating controversies on current hot topics. How about a controversial link between Barack obama and Sarah Palin?? That will sell like a hot cake. Someone do it. Let me be clean.
If at the end of this post you are stil thinking of what color is Jesus then close your eyes and let your heart see him.
The picture you are looking at is not just a sofa but it is a car also. Probably advertising for sofa dot com. After reading this you’ll probably head upto sofa dot com. There are 99% chances of that. Just thought of sharing this picture from an e-mail. This looks to be a good example of how to do marketing of your stuff.
