the long forgotten update

it has been ages since i updated my blog with updates. with what's happening around me and how did it affect me if it did.

there are some movies that never lose their charm. i guess that's why they are called classics. somehow the movies that i love never seem to figure in the list of classics. two are them that i can always think of are:-

- the river wild [you need to have some idea of how river rafting feels, or at least seen a river with rapids with your eyes]
- father of the bride [a movie full of sugar & sweet]

do watch them if you haven't

i try not to watch tv except when it is sports [although my aversion towards cricket is growing with every match]. but these days i am hooked on to some singers on a reality show. the show's name is junoon. the channel is ndtv imagine. there are 3 teams one of which sings sufi songs, another indian folk and the third bollywood fare. the two teams who sing sufi & folk do not sing movie songs. and they are amazing singers. and the even better part is that they sing songs which are so close to the land. beautiful words and simple music. tragedy is that singers from these teams get eliminated because no one seems to understand how different they are from the dhinchak material public are used to. you have to listen to them to understand how different, how classy and superior they are to other music reality shows.

the Sufi and the Folk bit are fantastic... and not to forget the parts that Rahat Fateh Ali Khan adds at times in the show...

Awesome hai...
