*** Taare Zameen Par ***

Taare Zameen Par is an awesome movie. I just finished watching.

Few movies are made which are acclaimed by everyone. I’ve yet to meet someone who says he/she didn’t like the movie. Now I know the reason. I doubt I’ll ever find someone. 
It’ll be one of my all time favorites.

And I am not able to do this for about two weeks […] Continue Reading…

Interestingly, with every year, these resolutions are becoming more and more innovative. Why shouldn’t it be? One must have a cool sounding resolution. Whether or not one lives up to it is a different matter altogether. While among friends this topic always comes up, especially towards the end of the […] Continue Reading…

Re: Sometimes losers win

While going through this post,  Sometimes losers win which crisply explains how (smart)losers  win sometimes by re-defining winning as being losers,  I got reminded of an age-old wisdom story which goes like this:
Akbar,  who was a successful and able King was known for his witty questions and Birbal, one of his favorite courtiers was known to counter and solve those with compelling reasoning. On one such occasion, to test Birbal’s wit, he drew a line and asked Birbal if he could shorten the line without touching it! Birbal quickly drew another line bigger than the one Akbar did and […] Continue Reading…
