Recently I saw a movie and read a book which involved incidents much close to home (mine at least). Let me start with the movie
Pink (Hindi) – My friend and I went for this movie. It was a total cry fest for her. I managed to hold it until the very end and the last scene where a lady constable shakes the hand of the lawyer appreciating him silently for stating the obvious and standing up for all the women, I lost it. This movie is very much appreciated by all. I am sure the scenes could have been done a bit better. Sometimes it felt like there was too much silence to increase the dramatics which wasn’t really necessary in this movie. The dialogues are the best. It also shows clearly how women are treated in this society (may be in many societies) It also introduces us to some of the unknown legal terms like Zero FIR. It is a must watch for all. I know some of my colleagues who have the same mentality as the guys in this movie. I wish they would watch this movie.
Exhume (Dr. Schwartzman #1) – One of the Kindle Unlimited discoveries. A women who escapes an abusive relationship and becomes a forensic expert is given a body to examine and that throws her off badly because it looks just like her. When she thought she was far away from her narcissistic husband apart from his occasional flowers and cryptic messages, here is a proof that things are getting much darker for her. Is she just imagining the relationship between this girl’s death and her husband’s involvement in it or has he really gone to an extreme to kill someone to threaten her. This story follows Annabelle and her quest to be free from her abusive husband who is not ready to leave her be. It was quite gripping and are left to wonder along with Annabelle if it is indeed her husband or is it just coincidence. As always in such cases, there are some good friends of hers who come to her rescue. Gave 4 stars in Goodreads.
Last time I was in London I was so happy to go around the Camden Town area and capture some of the amazing Street Art that were on display. I took almost 2 hours to walk through these streets and capture each and every one of them. I made it into a series called ‘Wall & Art‘. There was one that I couldn’t capture last time. It was this one from the Kentish Town.
For some reason, I never had my camera every time I would walk by that place. This time too I did not have my camera, but used my phone to capture the same. And was so happy when it came out well.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “art.” Write a post regarding “art,” be it an object or a name. Note: I’m not asking you to draw something, but if you’d like to, we’d love to see that too! Enjoy!
Moments are precious; sometimes they linger and other times they’re fleeting, and yet so much could be done in them; you could change a mind, you could save a life and you could even fall in love. – Cecelia Ahern, How to Fall in Love
This is the last photograph from the set I had taken in London during my last trip. I am here again (in London, of course) for a very short duration, but I am not sure how my schedule is going to be. I hope you enjoyed the series of precious moments that I had the pleasure of capturing through my photographs and sharing it with you. It was more fun to find appropriate and relevant quotes for each of these photographs. And I thoroughly enjoyed presenting each and every single one of them.
If I happen to capture some more I will make it to Season 2 😉 Until then, thank you for joining me in this Wall & Art series.
Hopefully I will find something else to start a series on, sooner 🙂
I wonder why does ev’rybody look at me
And then begin to talk about a Christmas tree?
I hope that means that ev’ryone is glad to see
The lady in the tutti-frutti hat.
The gentlemen, they want to make me say, “Si, si,”
But I don’t tell them that, I tell them, “Yes, sir-ee!”
And maybe that is why they come for dates to me,
The lady in the tutti-frutti hat.
Some people say I dress too gay,
But ev’ry day, I feel so gay;
And when I’m gay, I dress that way,
Is something wrong with that?
Americanos tell me that my hat is high,
Because I will not take it off to kiss a guy;
But if I ever start to take it off, ay, ay!
I do that once for Johnny Smith
And he is very happy with
The lady in the tutti-frutti hat!
You can watch the whole song here (and may be move your body a bit too 😉 ) It is a really fun one.
