The last week has been a bad week for the human race. With all the blasts, the earthquake, and yet another atrocious rape case in my city, we are once again reminded that although we have come a long way in terms of science and technology and human development in general, there are still parts of the world which remain far behind the 21st century.
They call it a “New” Year. But despite that, every 1st of January gives me a deja vu, mainly because of the people talking about New Year Resolutions and how they never last.
Lets face it, not more than 1% of New Year Resolutions last beyond 3rd January (okay, i confess. I made that up).
So this year, I decided to make a list of things NOT to do in 2013. Here goes:
1. Do not stay in Delhi for more than 200 days. TRAVEL!
2. Do not let anything remain the same. I love change. Monotony disturbs me.
3. Do not say things you do not mean, “Lets meet soon”, being a classic example.
4. Do not spend TOO much time in front of the computer or TV. Read more!
And one last thing,
5. Do NOT STOP BLOGGING!
Inspired by PeaBee’s My 2013 To Do List
I recently went to see Breaking Dawn 2. (Yes, I happen to be a twilight fan )
I sat through the entire first half of the movie cursing the directors and the horrible job they had done with this movie. It was too fast moving and far too inaccurate. I didn’t like it. At all.
Then the second half started and I spent the first few minutes promising myself never to see a movie made by these guys again. But the last 15 minutes of the movie changed my perception entirely.
These guys had done things a little differently from the book, and I really liked that. It came off my black list in a second.
There really is no point watching a movie if you’ve already read the book. You know what’s going to happen in the end. But when movie makers decide to add some twists and turns contrary to the book, it makes seeing these movies worth it.
I know that there are movie critics out there, busy writing negative reviews about how movies often take away the essence of literature, but I love seeing film makers do thing differently, and I wouldn’t mind seeing a Harry Potter movie in which Harry’s parents are still alive.
