I am so angry right now, that I don't even feel it! The photographs were just alright the last time I was viewing them on the camera, and now the bloody card just does not want to work!!! the photographs are all messed up of whatever i can see in the thumbnails... the camera freezes when I try to preview the images on it! what a loss!
On the brighter side, it gives a big reason to go back to Panaji sometime!
You find your peace in pieces all over!!! Make sure to collect all of them!
And from how I see it, the 7th year is going to be extremely exciting, and happening, and set a strong base for years to come!
Here is some tea for everyone who has been a part of the journey in some form or the other!!!
Happy Birthday Chai ki Dukaan!
- Dodging falling rocks and rushing through the rock-rain within a matter of seconds
- Gathering courage to cross a fresh active landslide, and driving over rocks and trees
- Driving over huge rocks with just about an inch of possible error margin
- Watching river Kosi in its full flow, and driving through rushing waters for about 100 meters
The rear bumper had a slight impact but I was able to fix it after I reached work! I hope no plastic parts have broken!
In Fred's words, "A portrait of a chai wallah (tea maker), in his shop, in Haridwar. I took this during my stay in Haridwar for Maha Kumbh mela 2010, last April. This little chai shop had become a shelter for me, when the crowds and the sadhu camp became a bit overwhelming. In a way, it was like spending time, not just in a chai shop, but at the man's home itself, as the tiny shop seemed to tell of the man's life story with photographs and objects displayed in every corner.
He said he had seen many Kumbhs in his life before, and was no longer impressed by the whole thing. Yet, he admitted that for his little business, Kumbh time was the best !"
Last minute plans for a late evening Sunday movie helped us watch "Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai" My choice of a cinema hall in NOIDA is going to very obvious now. Its going to be Big Cinemas in TGIP... reason? I bought an year of parking for Rs. 1000... This gives me unlimited parking at the Mall for an year, and some discounts on a lot of stores! most exciting being Rajdhani and Subway! a few more, but Pooja is more interested in them than me!
Let's get back to the title of the post now! Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai! The movie starts with a failed suicide attempt, and runs mostly in the flashback! Sultan Mirza's story and how he is dethroned by both the thought process of a new generation and a man which belongs to it, all of this when he invested his trusted in him! I like the parts of the movie when Ajay Devgan is on the screen, and I almost hated the parts when Imran Hashmi was doing his so called acting! Absolute nonsense! I find it tough to identify Kangna Ranaut on the screen! ALWAYS! she looks different all the time! makes her likeable in my opinion though!
Overall, I think the movie was ok, but slower than what I would like such a movie to be! The dialogues are good, the attention to detail in the backdrops are good too, and the entire look of the movie is carefully thought after! The soundtrack is nice, however there is not much to be heard during the movie except a couple of songs! If you ask me, I would say go watch it if you like watching Ajay Devgan's onscreen presence, and do not mind getting bored for about 30% of the entire duration!
I am wondering about the thought which went into the small ad that is displayed at the back of this Maruti Omni!
Bought a whole lot of movies... by the end of 2009, ended up with more than 100 movies, and all handpicked!
