Peruchazhi Malayalam Movie Review

Watched Peruchazhi over the weekend. I am slightly biased as it is different to watch a movie for which you had visited the sets….  And Peruchazhi as a movie will always have a special place in my heart because the movie gave me the opportunity to meet the legend Mohan Lal himself…. But I will try giving…

Chinese girl run over and people watch; world angered!

When do we say we are human or being human? May be it is tough to answer that in one sentence. But if you were to ask when are we being inhuman? people will give answers citing recent examples. That is the tragedy of our world. It is ironic that we remember examples of inhumanity…

Corruption – Is it inside or outside us?

The recent anti-corruption movement in India brought out several questions and debates on the internet. Though a large amount of people of Indian Origin voiced their opinion I am not sure if there was much coverage of it in world news and among non Indian internet users. The world should follow what is happening in…

Why does (or should) India Rally behind Anna?

So why is India Rallying behind Anna? As Ramlila Maidan fills up with supporters of Anna Hazare and the Anti-corruption movement it is important we ask this question. But at the same time we ask tis question we should also investigate what this means to us as a country and how is it that we…

Breaking our restricted world of likable realities

Though it is true that we are often stressed by the information overload; the internet has also given us the technology tools to filter and selectively absorb what we want. I think this makes a significant change in the way we view and approach the world. While the emergence of technology, social networking, online news…

Between Love and Hate there is a thin line of indifference

Though I would love to believe it is thin, I think it is more like a vast space where each and every one of us falls in at various instances in life. There are things, situations and people we love and there are those that we love to hate, but in between there are also…

Let Baba do his part; Let us do ours!

Yesterday I posted that I was unsure if I should support Baba Ramdev in his fast against corruption in india and the post had people from the for and against camps comment in. Unfortunately I am still unsure even after reading the comments and seeing the government used force on the individuals assembled there (which…

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it!

What are our duties as individuals? How do we recognize our responsibilities without them being enforced? People growing up in different parts of the world and under different cultures grow up to look at world differently. Even though now there is much more evenness in the generic idea of an individual’s responsibility, society’s function differently…

You are free to desire; but also choose from what you desire.

Desires; who does not have any, and it is what fuels people in their life. The desire to own something, the desire to have someone in your life, the desire to be famous, they come in all colors and flavors to direct our life. We reach a point when we are defined by our desires….

It is your responsibility to make a difference!

It is so beautiful to see that so much can be done in life if you look at it as a complete creation of oneself. If you were to plant something, you get the joy of doing so, the relaxation and happiness of continuing to nurture it and as it grows you can be sure…

Godmen, Politicians and Cameras

Godmen who are suppose to be pious turn out to be frauds, Politicians who are expected to be honest turn out to be corrupt and the convenience of small video cameras are now exposing them both. Isn’t that interesting. Recently a Godman in India was caught on Camera and seems to have resigned his post…
