Current thoughts ...

Listening to 'Sun sun sun sun zaalimaa' ... from Guru Dutt's movie 'Aar Paar' on Doordarshan.

The Google blog template, seems a definite hit !
However, I hope its not a copyright infrigement. Copying a web template should not be; but you never know. I was just reading a document back at office; each and every publicity note or advertisement or even internal notices have to follow a format, a particular specified style.

Was reading 'To Kill a Mockingbird' - it is one of the most poignant and subtly humourous and touchingly sensitive books that I finished recently ... The ending is very unexpected. Just started 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho.




Ashwin Kumar 's movie LITTLE TERRORIST has been nominated in the SHORT FILM (LIVE ACTION) category at the Oscars ... Lets see if the Indian director picks up an Oscar today ...

To Kill A Mockingbird

Started reading this week, 'To Kill A Mockingbird' by Harper Lee. It is the best book I have read till now, (earlier it was 'A Clockwork Orange', and 'Uncle Tom's Cabin'; in the classics category); the way imagery has been captured is just amazing at that time (1960) its as if you were watching a movie about a little girl as she grows up. The way people behave in her neighbourhood; along with her brother, and her father, a lawyer fighting for the rights of blacks, when the black and white divide was still rampant.
I have read about half the book and I am enjoying this, like I havent done with so many books, for a long time ... It strikes a chord, right with my heart, an amazing classic. Lovely. Sometimes serious, conveying a message; and simultaneously humourous with a subtle humour at every step. Its a novel I would have loved to write. Highly recommended !
