Parliament

The Canadian Parliament.

Went to visit the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa this weekend. After the tour I realized that I know more about the Canadian Parliament than I do about the Indian one. I have made a mental note to try and visit the Indian parliament the next time I am in Delhi.

Quote on a bathroom door

I saw this quote on a bathroom door today...
Come in with a rush.
Go out with a flush.

Friends...

Addendum...I came across this pic after I'd posted the earlier one, seemed to me this also belonged here.


Winterlude

Went to the Winterlude this weekend, saw some great ice sculptures and froze like anything.
Tried my hands (or should it be feet) at ice-skating...had fun :)
There are many more images...will be uploading the good ones from time to time.

And the nominees are...

The nominations for the Filmfare awards are out. As always, no surprises...they are just an example of ass-kissing at it's best. Full care has been taken to ensure that they don't rub the wrong people the wrong way.
Sample this:
Dhoom 2 is considered to be one of the best movies of the year. Here's why I think that is not true. In fact, I think it is an insult of movies like RDB and Lage Raho Munnabhai to be nominated alongside such a movie. But (yes the legendary but)...the movie had AB's baby (and would be bahu) in it, it has the current heart-throb Hrithik Roshan in it, and most importantly - it is a Yash Raj production. Can you afford not to nominate it??? I'd say definitely not ;)
All these (and then some more) reasons are valid for the timelessly intolerable Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna which again has been nominated for best film.
To add to the insult of Rakeysh Mehra and RajKumar Hirani, both Sanjay Gadhvi and Karan Johar have been nominated for best director also.
Wha…

Water Water everywhere...

I have always been afraid of water...the deeper it is the more scared I am. But lately, I have realised that I need to overcome my fears and face and get done with things that are unpleasant (a post on that will follow on my blog).
So, for starters...here's pic of a water body I visited in the not too distant past.

Angoor : movie review

Saw the movie Angoor last weekend. If you are a Hindi movie buff (don't need to be too crazy...just fairly interested in them); then this is one movie you do not want to miss. A true gem, timeless and classic.
Based on Shakespeare's'The Comedy of Errors', the movie is about two pairs of twins who get seperated shortly after birth. Seperated means, each group has one master-servant pair. Confused!!??? Well this is just the start :)
The story in brief:
A couple has twins who are so much alike that even the mother is not able to make out who is who. To add to it, the father (a cameo by Utpal Dutt) has named both of them Ashok. The logic is "Naming them with different names will not make it any easier for anyone to differentiate between them." On a trip, which involves a journey by ship also, he comes across another set of twins who have been abandoned by on the stairs of a temple. He graciously takes them in his fold (egged on by his tanga driver) and starts on his…
