It really is stupid of me to attend to them or even encourage them to continue to do so. It is not always in their happy times that they remember me. Well who wants to talk to an agony aunt when they are happy?Nah, not them!!! Hmmm, hence they call me only when is really wrong, that they so want to make it right or sometimes it is soo right that its too good to be true!

Its never in person you know, but these phone calls that drive me crazy. I do like to talk, rather i can be the most talkative but maybe its the hour of the night that they choose to makes calls, drives me mad!I am disgusted with these phone calls. Nah not to exchange pleasantaries(they never even ask me what i may be doing) but to pour their heart out to me. Its either about their "oh-so-cute-boyfriends" or "my-i-so-wish-i-was-dating-her/him".

Funny isnt it? Not really almost always.Mostly its my cousin brothers who call me at odd hours(read or later)and dont hang up till dawn!!! And normally they are so drunk!!! Under normal circumstances they are wonderful brothers, fun to be with& caring. But at these times i feel like just hanging up on them....but still i dont.

Sometime back,(6 months) C(my cuz bro) called me at the time mentioned above. He was naturally drunk. I think he could see 4 instead of two. But then he had me to talk to.I could barely make out what he is saying but then it was important to him. Apparently he had been crazily in love with some chic in his college. He had tried everythig...chocolates, flowers, writing poetry& gibberish! Well, she did agree.

But then comes the sad (hilarious) part. She turns out to be a maniac!! lolz, she was a wannabe Indian idol contestant with no visible or rather audible singing skills at all. Hehehe...!!! But then when you have such a sweet, loving, caring boyfriend, you could always ask him to praise you nevertheless!! She did exactly the same. Whenever he called, she would sing(croak) and then ask him to make a judgement. Sadly it always had to be in her favor!

This continued for 3 whole months. By this time my brother was desperately searching for ways to get rid of her& yeah well, now she's history.Another time, C, again cried his heart out to me. Telling me about how he had fallen in love with a chic call P. Lolz he was soo upset that he couldnt get her.

Here comes the sadest& the silliest part, where i should absolutely put an end to such untimely calls. A few days later when i do get a chance to mention this to cousin, he royally snubs me. Firstly, he doesnt remember a thing about whatever he said or did. There was never a girl called P in his life( he did agree abt the first girl tho). And that i was making up stories!!!Phew...irritating isnt it?

I wrote this because this has begun all over again. Though not with the same brother but with the younger one. He called me last night at 3:15 am( i was soo engrossed in reading) and then started laughing, giggling more like it. Well, he just called me to let( how sweet of him) me know he was soooooo totally drunk!!!

He said he had, had 11& half (am not sure of the measure) beers...and that all his friends were drunk!!!UFFFFF!!!! He hasnt called me back. I think he would agree with me that he did say all this. I swear i havent made up any of the above.

And yet C blames me for cooking up stories!!!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - my take

So I was not the biggest Harry Potter fan around but this way before I saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Yet still, I wasn’t crazy about the Potter mania like many I know are. However, watching Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows has compelled me to say otherwise. I am a fan and how!
Whenever one [me to be precise] hears about a great series as such, to be realised on the big screen, I am left with a twinge of disappointment. Harry Potter, on the other hand, is a series that is very rightly realised on celluloid as compared to the many literary masterpieces which have tasted dust.
So here is what I loved about the film:
From the very beginning the plot seems to creep up onto you. "These are dark times, there's no denying," said the Minister of Magic, Bill Nighy. Yes, this very sentence sums up the last book. 
To start with, the colour of the film, I mean the treatment, living up to the theme, is all gray, cold unlike the magnificent magical dining room at Hogwarts. H…
This is a 'nameless' post. I cannot bring myself to name it. If you ask me why, I could quickly crumble into a heap of tears (I don't care if this doesn't sound right!) and bawl my heart out. 
Remember my previous post about having a pet? Well, just my luck that my folks back home decided to finally give the nod to welcome a cute little Labrador pup. This was to be my sister's 25th birthday surprise and believe me when I say I was jealous for the very first time! I even ranted at my father saying he had to wait till I get married and then agree for a dog! Were they not listening when I begged for one as well? But not everything ends well, does it? We had the pup for a mere seven days. A cute little beige Labrador, we called Bolt. He was jumpy, nippy, cuddly and so much more. 
But god had different plans. Simply a week later the pup left us. Stopped breathing after a bout of ill health. Just when we thought he was recovering, he gave up. I wasn't around when they …

Animation films Part II

Animation has definitely come a long way and we know it and bare witness to it. But there is much more to animation and it's different forms way before Disney made Snow White. I have been fortunate in the past to have read and written about some of the masters.
In this post I will also talk about the ones I missed out on!
Animation is not just about bringing drawings to life. And the technique of 3D did not exactly exist then! This was way before computers were invented too. So read on...

Persepolis. I was really kicked about the film and loved the first half. Excellent narration and the b/w makes for the perfect setting! Marjane Satrapi's best!

Madagascar I &2 are both laugh riots. I like the way they move it...
Manny is absolutely adorable as is Diago and Sid. Awesome film and Scrat is the bestest!!!

Ari Folman is no animator yet Waltz with Bashir is a film par excellence. Sometimes animation is just a medium for brilliant storytelling and prove to be the best way to broach su…

A book review – Whispering Paths

The first time I interviewed someone for an assignment, the piece came back with a remark which read – ‘MOTS’ needs flesh, i.e. man on the street needs flesh! Whatever that meant, confusion was my first reaction to it. However, with writing and then rewriting the same assignment over, and over again, I realized that I had to add character or rather more ‘meat’ to the story. So what is my point here? I am trying to say that when someone asks me to read a new book or try a new author, I am generally wary of them. Why? Because I do not want to read through the book like a zombie because there is nothing (in terms of ‘meat) in its story or the characters!
But (There is always a catch, isn’t it?) Whispering Paths by Sneha Subramanian Kanta is different. Her debut publication has already put her in a league of writers who are out there to tell stories; stories that touch a chord deep within us and haunt us (in a good way) for time to come. Stories that a reader can relate to, feel the pain, …

Animation films Part I

This blog post is dedicated to my friend Vemana and Bharathy for they love animation films just like I do! I had long promised this to many of my twitter friends and finally I am putting this up today! Well, I of course cannot decide which animated movies are my favourite so I have just come up with a list of few must see films!

Lets start with Happy Feet! Happy indeed it was and made me extremely happy! Lol. I had the opportunity to watch it in the Dome theatre and the experience was just brilliant!

Now nothing beats this one! The Incredibles is one film I can watch over and over again and still look forward to watch it! Hahaha...awesome racy action and some cool moves...they are incredible! This is the first feature length animated film in the world! Walt Disney's Snow White is a masterpiece! They say this 2D animated film has so many frames that if you line up the paper will go up to the moon! Absolutely delightful!
Awww...this was my first animated film in the theat…
