April Showers and August Rush

Bangalore is really rocking at this point of time. Mornings are lazier than ever. There is always a cool breeze waiting to greet you good morning (or afternoon depending on when you take a leave from your dream world). Afternoon and early evening time can be spent reading some nice novel and experimenting with your culinary skills waiting for the best time of the day - evening. Trust me, evening showers, here, can heal any mood. When you don't have any job, you could not have asked for more. It's a wonderful life.

I watched August Rush for the third time enjoying one such early evening shower yesterday. It's a very nice movie with a superbly cute star cast. Music is the soul and the binding force that keeps many of us going in this life. I really love the music sequence August Rush plays for the first time when he meets the Wizard. The smile on his face is that of the most purset form. I remember seeing the musical shows in Indian TV and I have always cursed them for the fake emotions all the artists display. What August shows is the genuine affection clubbed with excitement that music brings to his life. It's heavenly. I can watch this movie n number of times to see him enjoying the music. If Nirvana has some look and feel, I must say this one will be very much close to that. Watch this movie if you haven't watched it yet.

Shantaram is going on smooth as usual. I find it difficult to keep this book down everytime I start reading this book. It's only when my wrists and hands start aching that I take a break. I am in love with this book all over again. It has some connection with the best times of my life. Hoping that it continues the same way in future too.

New Post

Well, let me start with an apology for the lack of creativity in putting title for this post. A month's break should be more than enough to get back those creative juices after a hectic final term at WIMWI. What a time it was! "those were the best days of my life" - if I try to put some words to my feelings.

Anyways... So coming back to the long break and life after that. Ah, nothing changes. I traveled to Delhi, Gurgaon, Amritsar, Dalhousie, Dharmshala, back to Delhi and now settled in Bangalore. Not many places, but lots of stories. A couple of thousand photos. In Bangalore, I am re-living my life post resignation from Juniper. Friends, nice food, books and lots of masti. My kinda fun you know. I have started second read of Shantaram and it still is as exciting it was the first time I read it. His wisdom is mind-blowing. Here is a little glimpse of the same -
Most loves are like that, from what I can see. You heart starts to feel like an overcrowded lifeboat. You throw your pride out to keep it afloat, and your self-respect and your independence. After a while you start throwing people out -- your friends, everyone you used to know. And it's still not enough. The lifeboat is still sinking, and you know it's going to take you down with it.
Can't say if I totally agree to it. But it surely is like that prediction that comes in daily horoscope. You can relate to it on any day no matter how hard you try to be a non-believer. More about it soon.
