The Commonwealth Games 2010 being held in ‘Incredible India’ (pun intended) unveiled (unlike how media revealed their scam) the CWG Theme Song. Composed by A.R.Rehman –  the song titled ‘Swagatham‘ was released with a fanfare of SDIPA’s students’ dancing to Rahman’s tunes.


The mood was ‘Jai Ho!!’ And, Rehman enthralled the audience – the couch potatoes too, with his rendition of ‘Oh Yaaro, Lets Go.. India Bula Liya.’ With just a month to go, Kalmadi and the Delhi Goverment seem to have taken a miniscule step forward.

But, beware one step back and you will find them landed in the ground debris. 😉

Titanic Love

There was money.. And, there was Love.. There was disapproving Family.. There was Blind love.. Happy moments came.. Sad moments too.. Kodak moments were there..

They crossed their fingers and their legs.. To be together – forever, would be best.. Fate twisted.. The love boat shook.. They clung to each other as long as they could..The strong wind blew hard.. Took away her lover – beyond eternity some say..

She was left on the boat, with memories flooding each day.. Everyday was a test, but each tide she surpassed.. Time broke her boat in two.. One rowed towards a future without him.. The other, an abyss of cold darkness with a flicker of hope – with his arrival..

Which boat should she hop on?

The heart knows, whichever one she rows – it will sink her.. Coz she is without him..

Every morning in Africa a gazelle awakens knowing it must today run faster than the fastest lion or it will be eaten.

Every morning a lion awakens knowing it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve.

It matters not whether you are a gazelle or a lion, when the sun rises you had better be running.

It means, when the lion stops trying, it will starve or when the gazelle stops running, it will die. So, don’t lose hope and try, try and try more!!

Hollywood movies have become a staple for me, these days. Each morning starts with a scan of the movie listings on Star, HBO, PIX, Studio and more. It makes me watch mushy romances or simply thrillers or a comedy.

And, one thing I love is a simple message I usually get through them. Few ring true, others make me want to think more on those words. So here are a few which I remember.

  • When a pristine white-attired God tells Bruce Almighty to ‘Be the Miracle.‘ The three words just give me hope and motivation, each time I think about giving up on a difficult task or a challenging relationship.

Bruce Almighty

To see the path, one has envisioned – choices are to be made and the outcome of decisions to be endured. So if you want your wish to be true, work on it – coz you can make it happen.

  • Jennifer Lopez’s Maid in Manhattan act didn’t win my heart, but one of its dialogues did.  When Lionel tells Marisa, Lopez’s screen name  – What we do, Miss Ventura, does not define who we are.  What defines us is how well we rise after falling.”

Just like a phoenix, who rises from the ashes. To fall is to learn. But remember, do not make all the mistakes yourselves. Sometimes, simply learn from others. 😉

  • Tom Cruise’s Jerry Maguire act had me drooling. But more than that, it was his never-give-up attitude that one admires. Renee Zellweger’s single mother act and the nerdy, bespectacled kid makes you fall in love with them.

It has one of the most romantic dialogues, to serenade your loved one.

This one’s for him : “I love him for the man he wants to be, and I love him for the man he almost is. I love him.”

And, for her – read this and you will know what am talking of.

Jerry: Hello. I’m looking for my wife. Alright. If this is where it has to happen, then this is where it has to happen. I’m not letting you get rid of me. How about that? This used to be my specialty. I was good in a living room. Send me in there, I’ll do it alone. And now I just… I don’t know…but our little company had a good night tonight. A really big night. But it wasn’t complete, it wasn’t nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn’t share it with you. I couldn’t hear your voice, or laugh about it with you. I missed my wife. We live in a cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors, I love you. You complete me. And I just…
Dorothy: Shut up. Just shut up. You had me at hello.
Well, these are just a few. Will add to the list, as they come up. Till that time, why don’t you write in your favourite movie dialogue? Why you like it? If there’s a story, share it. If not, it never hurts to share.
