Motivation

Are you the one who needs some kind of motivation to take out some time to sit back and reflect on 'us', 'our society', or 'our country'?

Don’t think too much! WE all are the same. If not all, but majority of us do want to contribute to our society’s growth, be a part of our country’s development process, and get involved in some form of activity which can enable us to pay back to this society, which has given us enormous opportunities to be where we are today. However, we need to be shaken out of our daily routine lives to be able to think on the lines of being a responsible citizen and DO something. Yeah…even SRK now advocates for ‘doing’ something and leading the country!

I belong to the same genus of people who need an inspiration to think out of the box and begin doing something. And for me the stimulation came in the form of EHSAAS. What can be a better way to start with, than aiming to educate the children of underprivileged class of society, who would constitute the larger section of the ‘responsible citizens’ of tomorrow?

Sooner or later, we have to realize that it is ‘us’ who need to start thinking objectively and taking initiatives. No blame game can unravel the complexities and we shouldn’t even wait for someone else to initiate a beginning and clean our own house, our neighborhood, our country! It is ‘us’ who can and need to bring about a CHANGE.

I hope to involve and motivate all of you who sincerely want to be a part of the army of civilians who wants to bring about a positive change to our society, in whatever way it be. Don’t let the spirit die! Remember, it is vital to start thinking now. Actions will surely follow!

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Blue Moves


What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you're not there

What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it's all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word

It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word

What do I do to make you love me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I do when lightning strikes me
What have I got to do
What have I got to do
When sorry seems to be the hardest word

Ramu ki Aag

I surely must have done some realy good deeds in my past life that am still alive...no am not talking about being saved from the bomb blasts that happened in Hyderabad...but about still managing to be alive after watching Ramu's AAG...

Ramu ki AAG ne humko jala hi diya hota, bas hamare achche karmo ki wajah se hum aaj aapke saamne sahi salaamat hain :P

An absolute movie buff like me hardly dislikes any movie...my idea of a good weekend is to go for any movie...mind you any...but this ramu ki aag...am surprised how am still alive although it wasnt any less than committing suicide...after a long saturday (long--coz I was in office for 6 hours), I decided to venture out to find tickets for the so-called 'fundoo' remake of the age-old blockbuster Sholay, RGV's Aag...and what a luck...i got the tickets...that too very easily, without booking them a week ago and in a descent theatre...but whats waiting in there, I could have never guessed...the theatre was jam packed with all fools, like me...

Now a bit about the movie:

All the characters were total waste n why the hell all of them...esp mr. Big B had to overact to the extent that he never seemed to be the negative character but a complete joker (on top of it, the name Babban, suits a character like Rajpal Yadav more than Gabbar’s counterpart); his weird expressions were rather funny than scary... infact now mothers would tell their children that better get ready for a sweet dreamy sleep coz Babban uncle would come and make you laugh with his comic acts...I dont understand why all the other actors like Ajay Devgan and Sushmita Sen wanted to be a part of this blockbuster flop show where they just had to over-react on every dialog and underact for every little scene, respectively, that they had in the movie...I still dont know who played Jay's character and why was Ghungroo and Laila (her auto)in the movie, even Dhanno cant explain...for Sush...it was absolutely clear that she isnt getting work nowadays...n the Telugu superstars...are they so velle to act in this super bakwaas bollywood flick...alltogether it was disastrous and pathetic...sorry, actually disastrous and pathetic would be an understatement!
