Jodhaa Akbar

Posted on February 29, 2008. Filed under: movie |

I watched Jodhaa Akbar a couple of days back.  The movie was visually very grand and colorful.   Hrithik and Aish seemed to fit in their roles reasonably well.  It was a very very long movie.  The film lasted nearly three and a half hours.  The intermission was after 2 hrs and 20 mins.  Movies in other screens were over and people were leaving :).   

Overall,  I liked it and might watch once more.  And yeah, the song ‘Khwaja mera Khwaja..‘  is mesmerising.

Are Chennai Roads Safe?

Posted on February 29, 2008. Filed under: chennai, sholinganallur |

Here is a photograph that I clicked @ the Sholinganallur bus stop in Chennai.  The kiddo sitting on the road belongs to a family of construction workers for the IT Highway coming up here.  Most of the workers are non-localites and live in cramped tents by the road side.  I even heard news of a couple of people who were runover by a bus when they were sleeping in a nearby bus stand.

 

Lot of accidents happen on this road.  Our company alone lost 3 employees in road accidents. Another colleague had a bus run over his hip. We used to play table tennis together.  He can barely walk without a support stick now. And worst of them all,  read this incident.

A few milestones crossed

Posted on February 8, 2008. Filed under: ekalayva |

Now, I’ve been sitting for a while wondering what to write.  Let me stop it and write of a few little things that happened this week.  Here goes..

  • It has been a year since I started blogging regularly.  I wrote at http://webtrot.blogspot.com till December 2007.  Then, I moved here because I found wordpress better and easier to use.
  • I passed the SCWCD Examination.  It is a technical certification which my job wants me to complete.   I treated myself for it with a sumptuous lunch here.
  • Switched to the Tarski theme.
  • Site statistics indicate my blog crossing 1000 hits since December. Crossing the 4 figure mark isnt the point.  The fact that there are a few people who read what I write keeps me going.  

I ll keep writing and I hope to write them asap (as sane as possible) for your sake ;).  Stay tuned !!
