I begin to realise that happiness is an extremely relative term.
Some people attain a certain level of happiness by owning a Ferrari others attain the same level of happiness just standing by the window watchin the rain.
So is the secret of a content life, the ability to bring down our happiness threshold?
Would one who does so be perceived as being unambitious?
Would a person who has discovered the secret to a content life be bothered about perceptions of others?
Is it the same with sadness....I think so.


-Li T'ai-po (translated by Ezra Pound)

Blue mountains to the north of the walls,
White river winding about them;
Here we must make separation
And go out through a thousand miles of dead grass.

Mind like a floating wide cloud,
Sunset like the parting of old acquaintances
Who bow over their clasped hands at a distance.
Our horses neigh to each others
as we are departing.

Song of the week

Paap: Laage tumse mann ki lagan
Somehow listening to this song, evoked a sense of intense sadness in me. An emotion I am not very used to. Superlative.

Music review: Rang de Basanti

After being fed on a diet of songs by Pakistani artistes(many of them quite good), here is an Album that is truly indian in flavor.
A.R. Rehman has come up with a wonderful album againThe Title Track, though with punjabi beats, sounds fresh.
'Tu Bin bataye' is wonderfuly haunting, this one reminded me of Enya's 'May it be' from LOTR.
The soft 'Khoon Chala' and 'Luka Chupi' are nice as well.
Rehman experiments with 'Lalkar' an inspirational chant.'Khalbali' which sounds like an Arabic number, is decent but not upto the mark.
However, the crowning glory of the album is definitely 'Rubaroo' and the more popular and peppy 'Paath Shaala'.
"talli hoke girane se, sikhi humne gravity...." go the lyrics of PaathShaala

Neat album overall :)

Movie : Equilibrium

Well, did not expect much from this one, though it gets a decent rating of 7.7 in IMDB, I did not find it 'awesome'. It was good, but then again I may be biased, as it has Christian 'Batman' Bale in the lead role.

The action is super-cool, especially the gun-fu moves, close calculated combat with a hand gun. Neato. A watchable movie. Better if you are a Christian Bale or an Action fan (who is'nt?):)


I do not make New Year resolutions since I believe that one does not have to wait for the 1st of Jan to resolve. However here is one...
Bring a smile to someones face, make someone laugh out aloud, make someone feel nice, make someones day.
This is what I resolve to do. Its a simple resolution, thats not so simple to keep up. But trust me its fun :)
If you are reading this, I hope you add this to your list of resolutions too.

W.B. Yeats

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
