Next in the installment is 2 Songs. For earlier posts in this series check here
Oh! This is such a tough one. I have a huge winding list of favourites 😛 But two songs that really touched a cord are
Badal pe pau hai, ya choota gaon hai from ChakDe
Baby you are a firework by Katty Perry from Firework
Both the songs talk about looking at the brighter side, believing in the best versions of ourselves and sky is the limit if you believe in yourself. Love these as they have the power to pull you out of the darkest corners.
Next in this #BloggingChallenge is 3 Films. If you wish to see earlier posts in this series visit here
12 Angry Men – This was a movie that I watched on TV. Stumbled upon it while channel surfing. My hubby told me to watch it as I might enjoy it and I decided to give it a Go. It’s a black and white movie and the pace of the movie is what it was during that time. The story, the thought behind it is so powerful that it stays with you long after the movie is over. The simple underlying narrative of it is never just believe what you see, go with your gut. If you believe in something, don’t give up just because nobody else sees it that way.
Harry Potter Series – My sister is a potterhead! I never really got around to reading the books, but I love the movies. I know all the potter fans will hate me for endorsing the movies, but I do enjoy the skill with which the special effects guys have brought the whole series to life. Compressing those voluminous books into sensible 3 hour movies, while bringing to life the whole fantasy world is not a small task and they have nailed it for me.
A Wednesday – A beautiful hindi movie with a really strong message. Long before there was a global war against terrorism, this movie looked at it from a sensitive angle and asked some very relevant questions that a common man would ask. What would happen if the common men around the world decided that enough was enough and decided to fight back? This movie attempts to delve into questions like these.
The next installment of #10DayYouChallenge is 5Food. To check the earlier posts in this challenge check here
I am not very creative when it comes to food 😛 I love what 80% of the Indian’s love. Even Italian and Chinese are the desi versions that I have ever tasted, so I am not entirely sure how I would react to the authentic versions 😀
The next installment in this #Challenge is Places! I love travelling, especially if it is at my pace. So here goes
Norway – I want to see the Aurora or Northern Lights.
Chikmangluru/Coorg – A tiny coffee growers heaven in Coorg. Lovely place, extremely relaxed. Feels like life just went into first gear
Andaman’s – This is going to be my retirement home. I am in love with Andamans. The beaches, the quiet, the corals, natural beauty, everything is gorgeous about this place.
Singapore – This is an anti-climax to Andaman’s but loved the buzz here. There is something for everyone. I especially enjoyed the self-exploration of the city.
Forts in India – History comes alive when I visit the Forts. The strategy, the valour, the sacrifies, everything rushes past your eyes. Add to it a strong narrative by the local guide and you have a full fledged movie in your head.
My granny’s place – This is me at my nostalgic best! Everytime I go there, I feel I like I am time travelling. The old house still has numerous stories to share. There are innumerable hidden treasures that unravel everytime I go there. The trees, the house and everything around it envelopes me into a warm hug, everytime I go there. I am a kid again.
