Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Rejuvenated, recharged, inspired, invigorated and ready to go. This is how I feel after the weekend at Anjarle. The pristine beach, intoxicating serenity, calming greenery and fresh air has infused new life into the morbid souls of us city-dwellers who are forever caught up in the vortex of the race against time. I guess travelling does it for me, always. It gets my head clear and my energies soaring.
It’s all over the news channels, in the newspapers, networking sites, everywhere. The amount of space it’s occupying shows the importance attached to it. Before I continue I must tell you it’s about MS Dhoni’s retirement from test cricket. Yup, I was talking about this news. The lost Air Asia flight, incursions by terrorists along J&K border, China’s expanding military ambitions, ISIS crisis, all fade away in comparison to this particular bit of information. Gosh, it’s unbelievable!
Went to see the latest Aamir Khan movie ‘PK’. As usual it was good. I mean when I say good, I don’t just mean it as a package but in how such a sensitive subject has been dealt with. Of late when I go to watch an Aamir Khan movie I go with expectations of having my comfort zone shaken. I’ve been forced to look at ‘things’ from a perspective which is very obvious yet not palatable to the average mind. PK has once again made us all rethink about something’s which we all in our deep subconscious know as a ‘wrong’, yet most of us would not touch it with a pole. Even with people with whom we profess to be honest, we discuss such issues cautiously lest we disturb their sensibilities.
