How Contradictory!!

CNN reports: "Struggling to maintain her composure while testifying at a preliminary hearing, Catherine-Zeta Jones the Oscar-winning actress recalled how at one point she feared having a heart attack or a stroke because of the death threats contained in letters and telephone calls."

Quite funny....isn't it??

Indian TV serial in China!!

After Rajnikant being a big hit in Japan several years ago, it is now the turn of Tellywood to make its mark on the international Asian scene. The 24 episode TV serial 'Koshish Ek Asha' directed by Anurag Basu and produced by Balaji Telefilms will be aired in China. The serial deals with the attitudes of young Indians towards marriage and family. On a side note, from what I have come to know from other Chinese junta on campus here, there is a lot of demand for Chinese-English interpretors and translators with the Indian consulate in China playing an active part in hiring such proficient candidates.

Conclusion for the Week-End...
It rained yesterday, and the drops were big and the wind was gusty!! So the rain hit the surface at an angle (probably 60 deg). I did not have an umbrella, and was stranded at the bus stop for a while and then walking a couple of minutes to reach home. I realised that the probablity of getting wet is higher when you stand in one place when it is raining with rain drops larger than normal with the wind blowing, and that if you keep walking, the rain drops tend to miss you!! Also, a further examination lead me to the conclusion that while walking, if you walk zig-zag the probablity that you miss the rain-drops is even higher than just walking in a straight direction. :-)

Who were you in your last life?

Location: USA South-West around the year 1825.
Your profession was that of a philosopher and thinker.Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Timid, constrained, quiet person. You had creative talents, which waited until this life to be liberated. Sometimes your environment considered you strange.The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Your main task is to make the world more beautiful. Physical and spiritual deserts are just waiting for your touch. Keep smiling!

Hah hah...thats surprising!!

Bourne Supremacy..

Last time we waited in a line for about 30 minutes to get good seats for Farenheit 9/11 and today for 20 minutes for Bourne Supremacy! One of us grunted and reminded us about the lines in India that used to be there for almost anything from milk to passports and the US of A visa....and then another(thats me) put in a philosophy that where ever one goes in the world, he/she should never forget his/her roots and from where he/she comes from....so no point grunting to stand in line for 20 minutes when we have spent most of our earlier lives doing the same! A nice point of debate..isn't it?? Anyways...not digressing further, Bourne Supremacy is very nice! A very fast movie with a lot of things packed in a very short time. It just doesn't let you off the hook even for a moment. A must see...for any spy movie/under cover agent fan!! The only thing annoying about it are the shaky-cam shots which are too fast for the eye to follow...but thats too little for the whole movie as such! Matt Damon has done an excellent job.

Dr. Akagi

Saw this Japanese film 'Dr. Akagi' yesterday. Set in the World War II time era, the movie is about one Dr. Akagi who is extermely devoted to wiping out Hepatitis. He just keeps on running from house to house and the village lovingly calls him Dr. Liver for his tireless efforts. The Japanese government, due to the war is umwilling to support his research and hence Dr. Liver is helped by his friends: A Buddhist priest who is a drunkard, a surgeon who is a morphine addict, a Dutch POW and a former prostitute, who falls in love with the doctor. The movie is hilarious with Dr. Akagi running from house to house, trying to find a cure for the deadly disease!!

The Sun Newspaper reports that Paris Hilton has bought her own porn video from a Hollywood video store..The video titled 'One Night in Paris' was recently released. Apparently Paris Hilton has dropped the £17million lawsuit against ex-lover Rick Salomon in return for a share of profits obtained from the sale of the movie!!

On a Reading Spree...Lets see how long does it last...

I think I mentioned before, that I finished reading 'The Da Vinci Code' by Dan Brown, of course an excellent read! But I also finished 'Angels and Demons' which is also equally gripping. Two successive Dan Browns seemed like watching Part I and Part II of a certain movie, but unlike my usual feeling of the sequel being a bit boring, both the reads did not disappoint me at all. 'Angels and Demons' is excellent too, and at some points I found it to be much more informative than 'The Da Vinci Code'. I am currently reading 'Five People You Meet in Heaven'....it seems to be quite philosophical and has its own interesting but mild twists and turns. I am enjoying reading it, because it is very small ~180 pages. Had it been something similar to the previous two, I would surely never have completed it. Next in line is 'Vernon God Little' by DBC Pierre or Michael Crichton's 'Prey'. The former I got it from the library, the latter I bought it in a sale along with 'Angels and Demons'.
I used to read a bit when back in India while going to and from work and home. Bombay traffic jams used to put me up on the BEST bus for atleast 45 mins with nothing to do than looking out of the window and inhaling the dust and smog and listening to the melodious car honkings and the auto rickshaws doing 'Trrrrrrr' and the BEST bus doing the 'Pooooaaannn-Puuuuuun', those horns that used to be on the tongas in the olden days!! Some of the good ones that I completely remember are:

- Fountain Head and We The Living by Ayn Rand (I find her novels just amazing)
-The Third Twin by Ken Follett (He is my favorite author and now Dan Brown too :)
-The God Father and Sicilian by Mario Puzo.

My reading wasn't that fast, especially while reading any of Ayn Rand's books, but I guess since I read slowly, I remember most of her stories! In the end I was reading 'Atlas Shrugged' but then somehow could not complete it. Don't know the reason, but it just got left out...will definitely complete it one day!

What's up with The Times Of India?

Is the quality of reporters serving for the Times of India on a decline, or is it that the reports on the TOI website are different from the actual paper version? Off lately, the writing style of these reports is so horrible, leave aside impressive! And if the NY times can put the report of the Tamil Nadu school fire on their front page, TOI has the excellence of Dravid as the top headlines....where is this going? Is it sale strategy or just negligence because the incident occured in a not so famous town in Tamil Nadu? Or is it that if I had been a reporter in India, I would have done the same thing, and consider other things a bit more important than the death of 80 children between the ages 8 and 10.

Humor in Tragedy & Serious Circumstances!!!

"In the name of the Filipino people and the name of humanity and the family of de la Cruz and his eight children, the government of the Philippines is pleading for his release," Deputy Foreign Minister Rafael Seguis told the Arabic-language television network Al-Jazeera.

I ask, Did the Islamic militants do a family background literature study before kidnapping de la Cruz? If yes, they might have said, lets take on this bugger...he has eight...prospects are high!! Islamic militants and literature study.....Hah Hah...

This statement from the Deputy Foreign Minister is satirically appropriate to follow the World Population Day!!!

Would India release a statement like this if our Laloo was kidnapped by Islamic militants?? He has 11 kiddos....Would Saudi Arabia release a statement like this if Bin Laden's dad was kidnapped (by God only knows who)....for he has the most of them all,......54 children!!!

"Ten years ago, 179 governments promised to improve the quality of life for women and families with access to health care, education, a clean environment and reproductive rights. Ten years later, we can say that significant progress has been achieved...But much more needs to be done. Nothing demonstrates the urgent need for greater action than the issue of safe motherhood. Today, each and every minute a mother goes missing. She perishes in childbirth or from complications of pregnancy. And the tragedy is compounded by the fact that nearly all of these deaths are preventable"

What is Judgement?
You are walking on a path wide enough for only one person and you see someone coming from the opposite direction. Is judgement, the ability to predict whether the person coming from the opposite direction will step aside and make way for you, or do you need to step aside. What ever the decision, good judgement is that which is productive and time efficient.
Is judgement the ability to predict where the next rain drop will fall?
