Hoarse Whisperer

That's how I sound this morning. Throat has gone for a toss right now. I get a feeling somehow that people around me are a more relieved lot. Maybe my mind is playing games with me.

Married people envy single people. Single people don't know what the fuss is about, but look forward to marriage anyway. Smart single people figure out that they can rub it in by just talking about their simple life.

I have new respect for Seattle rain. Given that summer is supposed to be here, and the heat really renders the lawn/plants dry, the intermediate bursts of rain help save me a lot of effort and water bill.

My respect for National Awards is going down. I don't agree that Page 3 was the best movie of the year and Saif definitely didn't give the best performance of the year.

I saw 'GoodFellas' finally. Not bad, but the mafiosi genre is disinteresting me now. Too many of them, I think. Thankfully, not too many of those are made nowadays. Of course, Godfather is so so so brilliant that nothing will ever come close to it.

Haven't see Sarkar or Paheli or Dus or a bunch of new Hindi movies. I saw 'Wedding Crashers' instead. C'est la vie.

I am reading up on a passion that I have always pursued half-heartedly. I have given myself a year to try this seriously. If it works out and the blog is still around, you'll hear about it.

If you are among the bunch of people who have been following this blog regularly, thanks for your loyalty and support.

Hey Parth - this sounds like a goodbye? Is that so?

"Hoarse" throats have nothing to do with blogging - so why spreading the fear that we shan't hear frm you from now on? *Frowns*

Meanwhile - Parineeta & Sarkar are worth watching. Dus is a TOTAL waste...and I hear Paheli is over-done and terribly garish!

Totally agree with you regarding Ntl Awards...but then a few years back they gave the award for best actress to Karisma K for Dil to Pagal Hai, for chrissake!

Thanks RT for the support. Thanks for reasons beyond this comment. Thanks for the wishes and the gift and for existing. I wrote up another post to clarify. Should have waited 5 minutes more :-)
