Wonderful song--Tum se hi--Jab we met

Na hai yeh pana
Na Khona hi hai
Tera Na hona jane
Kyun hona hi hai

Tum se hi din hota hai
Surmaiye shaam aati
Tumse hi tumse hi
Har ghadi saans aati hai
Zindagi kehlati hai
Tumse hi tumse hi

Na hai yeh pana
Na Khona hi hai
Tera Na hona jane
Kyun hona hi hai

Aankhon mein ankhne teri
Bahoon mein baahein teri
Mera na mujhe mein kuch raha hua kya
Baaton mein baatein teri
Raatein saugatein teri
Kyun tera sab yeh ho gayahua kya
Mein kahin bhi jata hoon
Tumse hi mil jata hoon
Tumse hi tumse hi
Shoor mein khamoshi hai
Thodi se Behoshi hai
Tum se hi tum se hi

Aadha sa wada kabhi
Aadhe se jayada kabhi
Jee chahe karlu is trah wafa ka
Chode na chote kabhi
Tode na tute kabhi
Jo dhaga tumse jud gaya wafa ka
Mein Tera sharmaya hoon
Jo bhi mein ban paya hoon
Tumse hi tumse hi
Raste miljate hai
Manzile miljati hai
Tumse hi tumse hi

Na hai yeh pana
Na Khona hi hai
Tera Na hona jane
Kyun hona hi hai

If everyone were to win, who would be the runner up?? Are we losing ourselves in the struggle to find an identity?

hmmmmm

Just read a suicide note in a blog.. It was kinda funny.. and as most things do, set me thinking and ultimately yapping! Why are we all here in the first place? What is the purpose of everything we do? (I know everyone would have asked themselves this qn/read it somewhere.) Cliche ill call it myself. Life changes so much in a matter of few years.. Sometimes, in just seconds.. I was thinking about my past and my present...

From when i was a kid, scoring marks was the only thing i bothered about..Spending all my evenings reading something or the other and actually enjoying all the books i read. I remember working out every problem in my math book till my hand ached and feeling bad about making a 199 in the revision test. I remember feeling bad in my ninth annual day as i dint get a prize.. Getting my 12th mark list and feeling bad about the unfair 190 i made in physics.. That was me the same old me around four years ago..BITS--the best thing that happened to me i say.. First test i wrote was a workshop tut.. I made a half. I think i felt bad about it. That was the last time i felt bad about scoring low.

What do i care about now?Definitely not marks. The old harini would disown me if she saw me the way i am now. I, the same old me, scared to do so many things as people might 'mistake' me, dont care so much about that now.. (true i do bother about it sometimes when i go crazy..but thats very seldom.. and old habits die hard.) Nothing shocks me now. I dont term anyone a good/bad person based on one action. It all seemed so easy then.. Things were either black or white.. Now i see so many shades of grey and surprisingly accept it..

I cannot say i care about earning money.. Experience has shown me that the best things in life cannot be brought.. Another cliche coming up.. I have seen people who have 'everything' depressed with life and those with 'nothing' quite very happy.. Of course i am not crazy enough to say that money is nothing. One does need money. Accepted. But thats not the only thing..

That brings me back to my question.. What do i care about?? Being happy? Yes i guess so.. But then sometimes i think sorrow is good as one can appreciate happiness better... I care about people who care about me.. Definitely a lot.. but not to the extent i'd give up my life for them! (I dont think ill do what the guy in If only does.. For those who have not watched the movie.. Sorry if i gave away the end) I guess i care about myself..As usual.. I am just another self centered kid you'd find..

How can i forget! I care about what i eat!

I guess i can safely say that as far as i am concerned, i am here on this planet called earth to have a gala time and to eat to my hearts content. Thats the maximum thinking i can do today..

Aerosmith- I Dont Wanna Miss a Thing

Its Valentines day today.. I somehow could not come up with any poem to express what i felt.. Sometimes words are just too insufficient.. This song could somehow kinda capture my mood..I dedicate this song to my special someone...



I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
Far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Well, every moment spent with you
Is a moment I treasure

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

Lying close to you
Feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
And I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever, forever and ever

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

I don't wanna miss one smile
I don't wanna miss one kiss
Well, I just wanna be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just wanna hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
'Cause I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

I don't wanna close my eyes
I don't wanna fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you, babe
And I don't wanna miss a thing

Don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna fall asleep, yeah
I don't wanna miss a thing

Serendipity

I like movies with happy endings that are not too dumb. :)

Monday, February 11, 2008

Shruti had asked me if i was missing bang. That set me thinking. When was the last time i missed something or someone? Last semester during PS, when i was alone and wanted company, i thought of the friends i had left behind. When i was bored and wanted distractions i thought of my college and thought i missed it. Once me and data had this discussion about how our likings change.. Maybe i am a little crazy and cynical... To me, i miss something not because of its absence but because of the lack of anything interesting or comforting at that instant. I guess its the case with all of us. We were not made to miss stuff. We could not have evolved if we are not capable of adapting ourselves to the surroundings. If our ancestors had thought they would miss their habitat and never moved, life as we know it would never have come to be. Its all about surviva and moving ahead. As i have once written in some post.. one can never go forward if one insists on looking back.

Of changed layouts

I was going through my blog. Realised i have not read in a long time. Almost a month since i read a book. Though i blame it on the non availability of books here, truth is when i come to college this laziness sets in. That i guess is the only reason i dont read much. Or even write. I have been watching movies like crazy though. Thanks to jd giving his laptop to sick me. This post is dedicated to him. Thanks a ton!

Taare Zameen Par

The story of a dyslexic kid. I dont know where to start. Should i talk about the great performance of the kid who acted as Ishaan? Should i applaud aamir for producing such a movie? Or must i appreciate the screen play and direction that makes the film all the more interesting? The relationship between the brothers is beautifully shown. The mothers concern, the fathers fear of his child being a retard..There are some movies in which such fears are exagerated.. Not here.. Every scene is natural. There is nothing out of the ordinary here.. Anyone can relate to that kid. One need not be dyslexic to be an outcast. Everyone of us has gone through this at some point of time or the other. I was reminded of the numerous outcasts everywhere...Not everyone has fairy tale endings. I am happy ishaan had.

5 reasons ( you can guess for what)

1) Blossoms
2) Corner House
3) Proximity to home (am i gramatically correct?)
4) Civilization~! ( as much as i love pilani.. it is a village)
5) Variety of food!

Pirivom santhippom

1)Filled with cliches
2)Long
3)Unrealistic(the girl wanting to marry into a large family for one)
4)Bad depiction of mental disorder (maybe watching too many classics makes me feel so)
5)Totally outdated.
6)Boring
7) Comedy scenes totally unrelated to the movie.(Is it the trend in tamil now??)
On a positive note:
8) One or two nice songs
9) The place they go to is beautiful
10) Sneha looks pretty once in a while.

P.S Above mentioned views are mine and mine alone.(Guess few people i know will agree with me.) No offence to the movies fans.

DCH-Tanhayee

Just could not resist putting this up. Listened to this once favorite song of mine after ages now. :)


Tanhayee Tanhayee
Dil Ke Raaste Mein Kaisi Thokar Maine Khaayi
Toote Khwaab Saare Ek Mayusi Hai Chhayi
Har Khushi So Gayi Zindagi Kho Gayi
Tumko Jo Pyaar Kiya Maine To Saza Maine Paayi
Tanhayee Tanhayee Milo Hai Faili Huvi Tanhayee
Tanhayee TanhayeeMilo Hai Fali Hoye Tanhayee

Khwaab Mein Dekha Tha Ek Aanchal Maine Apne Haatho Mein
Ab Toote Sapno Ke Shishe Chubte Hai In Aankhon Mein
Khwaab Mein Dekha Tha Ek Aanchal Maine Apne Haatho Mein
Ab Toote Sapno Ke Shishe Chubte Hai In Aankhon Mein
Kal Koyi Tha Yahin Ab Koyi Bhi Nahin
Ban Ke Naagin Jaise Hai Saason Mein Lehrayi
Tanhayee TanhayeePalko Pe Kitne Aansoon Hai Laayi
Tanhayee TanhayeePalko Pe Kitne Aansoon Hai Laayi

Kyon Aisi Umeed Ki Maine Jo Aisi Naakaam Huvi
Door Banayi Thi Manzil To Raste Mein Hi Shaam Huvi
Kyon Aisi Umeed Ki Maine Jo Aisi Naakaam Huvi
Door Banayi Thi Manzil To Raste Mein Hi Shaam Huvi
Ab Kahan Jaao MainKisi Ko Samjaon Main
Kya Maine Chaha Tha Aur Kyon Kismat Main Aayi

Tanhayee TanhayeeJaise Andhero Ki Ho Gehrayi
Dil Ke Raaste Mein Kaisi Thokar Maine Khaayi
Toote Khwaab Saare Ek Mayusi Hai Chhayi
Har Khushi So Gayi Zindagi Kho Gayi
Tumko Jo Pyaar Kiya Maine To Saza Maine Paayi
Tanhayee TanhayeeMilo Hai Faili Huvi Tanhayee
Tanhayee TanhayeeMilo Hai Fali Hoye Tanhayee
Tanhayee TanhayeeTanhayee Tanhayee

Shawshank Redemption

I am just sitting in front of the comp with this feeling one gets after watching a good movie. Tuesdays is one of my fav days of the week this year. I have just one class to attend.(not that i am quite sincere in attending all that i ever had. But being officially off is nice.) After watching Shes the man, ( movie a lot like twelfth night as balli pointed out to me) i started with Shawshank redemption.
I have always noticed that people have this tendency to unnecessarily hype some movie/book just because its a little different and they want to basically act smart. (you know this i think different attitude people have? Thats what i am talking about.) Maybe i am a bit too critical but after watching lots of hyped movies (wasting a lot of my 'precious' time on that) and reading crazy books, i think my view is justified.
To me, Shawshank Redemption was just another must watch movie i had been told too much about. 2 hours and 16 mins later... all i can say is.. It was worth the hype. I liked andy. (I know i am not as positive and silent as he is). Red, the warden, brooks... the other inmates.. Each character has been beautifully crafted.Institutionalization I guess a term i can relate to. Of course i am not living in a prison or some place i hate. Thankfully i have always lived in places i have wanted to be in. It has not been the case of hating the walls and then becoming used to them. It is more a case of loving the place and getting so used to it. I can somehow not imagine my not being a student in a mere 4 months. Part of me is raving to go and another part scared. The movie brings out the fear factor really well and it is quite believable too. Maybe this connection is way out of context but thats how i see it.
The director has shown a gradual passage of time. I kept trying to guess Andy's age. Somebody illuminate me. The best thing about the movie was the positive way in which it ended.

Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies.

A very good movie. Thought provoking.

Rashomon

Ok.. i am supposed to be working hard on a presentation for my conflict management class. There was this internal conflict in me( i hope the sentence is correct) One part wanted me to work hard on the presentation. Other wanted me to play stress relief paint ball. Other wanted me to blog (thanks to data telling me today she had updated her blog!) So here i am thinking out aloud. I thought id try a movie review.
I watched Rashomon yesterday (for CALCI). 5 mins after the movie, i did not feel anything great about it. I walked up to my room to chat with myla. It was then that the effect sunk in. Akira Kurosawa has done an amazing study of human beings. The story is like this. A man is found dead in the forest. The story of the murderer, the dead man's wife, the dead man(through a medium) and the story of a witness is told. Mans basic need to always be the nice person is very beautifully depicted by the director. Everybody tries to justify their action. When one pauses to ponder, it is quite obvious as to why who covers up what. The story of all 4 have few over lapping points and using that one is able to piece the actual incident together.
I have tried to not give the story away.I never thought id watch a 1950s Japanese movie. I did and i actually realised human nature has not changed much in the past 50 odd years. Guess we just supress few instincts better compared to early man and call it civilisation.
