Karthik Calling Karthik ....

Stepping into the theater to watch Karthik Calling Karthik, I felt a sense of expectation from the movie. To confess, I adore Farhan Akhtar because he comes across as an intelligent, constantly thinking man. Not hero stuff but in real life, he has got all that matters - brains, wit and logic that comes across in his warm persona. 

From the moment I saw the way Karthik (Farhan) behaved, I sensed that he had some disorder that began in his mind, the body language was not that of an introvert, but of someone who is going through mental breakdown. Many moments in this movie made you want to live in a world where vulnerable individuals like Karthik are given the space to be the way they want to be. 

However, in the real world, things get nastier and to survive, it becomes a question of joining the worst or being bullied by the worst.  I loved the part where Karthik learns the importance of saying 'NO' firmly. I think there are too many nice people in this world who are taken for a ri…

Thank You for the Kreativ Award

Lord, thank you for your love and grace in every moment of my life and for finding me worthy of this award. 
A big thanks to Niveditafor this Award. I don't know if I deserve it but you make me feel that I do.

You, the reader, helped me improve through every post. Your feedback and suggestions motivated me to write in the only manner that I know: from the heart. Thank you all for the love and patience. A big thanks to all my Twitter friends who have placed their trust in me and humbled me with their overwhelming support, friendship and acts of kindness.
As the rules for accepting this blog award make it necessary for me to share 7 facts about myself, here we go:
1. Kochi is my favorite city. It's in my soul 24X7.
2. I dislike certain traits in people such as dishonesty/corruption, boasting, constantly finding fault or being judgmental about others to camouflage their own faults, leading purposeless but extravagant lifestyles and taking advantage of friendships for wrongful reasons.…

Chaos @ Airport - II

Those of you who read the first part of Chaos @ Airportmay be interested to know about the rest of the story. 
Adi loves books just as much as I do. So, when he saw the Odyssey bookshop inside the airport, he was so delighted. He rushed to the kids section where there were lots of comics and coloring books. In his enthusiasm, he took out most of the coloring books one after the other and wanted to buy it all. This got me worried because I was trying to balance two bags while trying to organize the coloring books back in the correct place. 
From the corner of my eyes, I could see the frown on the sales girl's face. I reasoned out with Adi in the best way I could. I took each coloring book and said, "You already have this one at home so why should we buy the same one here?" or "It is too expensive and I really don't think we should buy this one today." Adi, in his enthusiasm, wouldn't budge. He says, "Amma, you have money in your bag." So, I said, &…

Chaos @ Airport - I

Out of the blue, I came on a sudden visit to Kochi, which is my home town. Everything was so sudden and also because I am hopeless at planning, things were very hectic. The night before I was to leave, I packed all my stuff and Adi's only after midnight and couldnt sleep till 2 am wondering what else I've missed.
Just when I thought I fell asleep, it was already morning and it was such a rush. I had to reach the airport on time and I was worried that if I didnt get Adi ready, we'd never make it. Adi fusses most about what he wears because he says he is going to be an actor. Considering the time and effort he puts into choosing his clothes, I almost believe he's gonna make it, at the cost of my sanity though! Seriously, today's kids are smarter than we give them credit for. They have everything planned and mapped out in their little minds while lesser souls like I struggle to think clearly. I wonder if this is a case of generation gap or me turning a grey leaf before…
