as the calypso sang..

As I watched Gayle’s exploits at the Premadasa while the Windies lifted the World T20 championship, the glares of the past could be seen lingering within. Can’t say ‘ghosts’ since any sport and its defeat stand distraught in terms of performance and the characters that hugely inflict the impact of such profound greatness. Dad chippedContinue reading “as the calypso sang..”

Barfi! – Sweet..

Landscapes woven out of an artist’s dream, streets that flush meadows in daylight, people who appear and are human, love that has touched the arms of divinity. ‘Barfi!’ is straight out of a folklore that doesn’t exist. Rather, you and me don’t know if it ever did. In the last 15+ years of Indian Cinema,Continue reading “Barfi! – Sweet..”

romantics unleashed – an amateur classic!

a new arrival terms the beginning of an evolution, budding flowers blossom meandering fragrance amidst vane, fewer mortals discreet farther feathers, yet, I love to fall and emerge unravelled. tinsel town connotes me at a level of subjugation, a celebrity of self invokes within.. gallops like highwayman when confronted ballistically, quiver, shiver and smell theContinue reading “romantics unleashed – an amateur classic!”

Satyamev Jayate: Slogan or statement!?

If I wander across borders in search of peace, will I get quantum or suffice the unknown elements of this planet? My school gave me the assets that defined the lanes of my life, but conspicuously, they were intangible. Guess, meant to be that way. Present talks language that preach the fetish collages of ourContinue reading “Satyamev Jayate: Slogan or statement!?”

Paan Singh Tomar: Glory that lost the verdict..

7 time steeplechase National Champion, sole representation of the country in 1958 Tokyo Asian games and the winner in 1967 International Defence Meet. Paan Singh who?? I am sorry but pages of history don’t speak and we by our own confessions, have the inimitable ability to ignore, forget and most importantly, never augment the commencementContinue reading “Paan Singh Tomar: Glory that lost the verdict..”

J. Edgar: Cliched & Tampered Genius

Biopics have always been addictive affairs for me. And, magnitudes of such maverick proportions are rarely depicted with such audacity. Forte, remains magnetic. Class, oozes envy and a legend survives the most dramatic chapters in American history with quantum poise and touch of evil debonair. Perhaps, Nixon’s final words describe the powerhouse of a manContinue reading “J. Edgar: Cliched & Tampered Genius”

Do we patronise Mr. Gandhi?

I opened up my day with the headlines and to my dismay, it appeared that tabloids were more keen to get a glimpse of the ailing Sonia Gandhi and get to more trivia behind the background rather putting in few sedate moments to remember the reverent Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Is that the kind of relevanceContinue reading “Do we patronise Mr. Gandhi?”

Greatness. The ultimate prize of invaluable proportions..

When a legend talks, you realise that his legacy was not an outcome of yet another robust yet hard working day; it was a result of blood and sweat that lasted over a lifetime. When a legend talks, his speech has charisma and the way of his expressions exude panache. Those reverberating words of wisdom,Continue reading “Greatness. The ultimate prize of invaluable proportions..”

‘Women’ – The epitome of imperious sustenance

They are probably the most unique and special class of human species. And every time I come across their exploits, they impress me to the core. Usually, in our spectrum of narrow minded inhabitants, we have always acknowledged and expected them to play second fiddle to man. And you can argue that in the wakeContinue reading “‘Women’ – The epitome of imperious sustenance”

An attempt to Rejuvenate Humanity..

My visit to Cheshire Home, located in the sprawling outset of Tiruvanmiyur, is simply an attempt to rejuvenate myself, as an individual and more importantly, to redeem the social and human values, embedded within me. It has indeed been an enriching experience, ever since I started visiting this Home few years back. There is aContinue reading “An attempt to Rejuvenate Humanity..”

Cinema: A Synopsis of Human Lives.

To start off, let me confess that I am a hardcore movie buff (that’s one of my known and disclosed passion) and the technical aspects of the film making business has always fascinated me. Every time I see a movie or whenever I ecstatic about a supreme cinematic experience, do I realize that it is,Continue reading “Cinema: A Synopsis of Human Lives.”
