Friday Post

Yesterday evening, I was tired and wanted to watch a movie and watch I did, and then slept. I didn't write my blog, so here I am writing in the blogger editor for a change. I use notepad on my laptop, and my dial up connection is so pathetic, I only use it to Chat on messenger, I don't bother to open any website. But I wanted to write a Friday post anyway, so inspired by Casablanca of writing on the wall . Not this Casablanca, that I wrote here.

It had been one festive week I say, we even had one of the most important festivals called Ningol Chakouba in Manipur Yesterday. I was far away in Mumbai though. Home must be filled with festive mood, I won't think about all the delicacies they must be preparing back home. The week has ended with Eid. Eid Mubarak deal all. And thank god, I won't have those terrible bombs blasting beside my window. All those rockets( crackers) seem to exploding right near my 4th floor bedroom window. I felt like picking up all the kids and adults alike who were having fun at the xpense of my ear drums and my piece of mind and lock them inside a tin drum. It would be such pleasure playing dholak with the tin drum.

Oh, the movie I watched Yesterday, The Sound of Music. It was so nice and fresh. I have seen the VCD staring at me for as long I remember at the VCD rack at Music world and Planet M and any other Music store. Frankly that was how I came to know of Sound of Music, and since it was so prominently displayed, I presumed it might have been a famous movie of its time though I never botheerd to check out it review. But each time I browse the VCD rack, it stared at me, a girl dancing and singing againts a a very beautiful backdrop. Well A few days back I gave in to the temptation, well point of sale does work, and had bought it. Watched it only yesterday and it was a pleasure sitting through or rather lying though the length of the movie. Of course, the loud crackers were a nuisnace, but it didn't distract me the least, I watched at FULL volume. I guess, it was what they call a musical, other than Hindi Movies( Hindi movies are musicals and then some more, well much more), I haven't seen a musical per se and was surprised that it could so beautiful and like I keep saying Fresh. I could feel a certain freshness watching the movie.
One more secret about the movie, I will reveal, it had two ending. The first ending was very nice but the second ending beat it. I think that was what made the movie even more memorable.
Yes, a Movie with two endings.

Oh! Just remember my favorite thought

Yea, the movie is a musical and I cannot remember right now but a Hindi movie is based on it too. The quote is great and I love Tagore's quotes. His thinking was way beyond anyone...
