One of my favourite pass times is to watch clouds esp before it rains....and of course photograph them. I dont know why I have this fascination for clouds, but I love to watch them float by. Above is a snap I clicked today in the morning just before the monsoon showers. I just love the deep dark may be dull and gloomy for some but I like it anyways. More in flickr....

Chak de!!

I went to see Chak De India only because my husband wanted to see it....and now am happy he did! Its one of those few movies that makes u laugh and cry with the characters, makes u a part of the action, make you feel good! One of the things I really liked is the fact this is not a run-of-the-mill movie - no heroine, no out-of-place, filling-a-gap songs, no typical villans, no fight sequences and best of all no stupid graphics!!

There's a similar old war time movie called Victory, based on football. Its stars a lot of ppl including Pele. The story is about how 11 prisoners held by the Nazis in Germany plan their escape in the guise of playing a game of football.

In bollywood, there are very less movies based on sports theme, and even more less with no songs, no heroines. So this movie is a real treat to watch. Plust points include great casting, good acting by Shah Rukh, simple storyline. I thoroughly enjoyed it and wont mind another go at it!

A day for remembering friends...

Today is friendship day, a day to remember all the good times, all those shoulders that supported you and so much more. One day may not be enough to think about the many souls that touched our lives, made us laugh and cry....but then in this fast world the least we can do is think of them on this very special day.

To all my dear friends, thanks for being there for me! And for the special person in my life who is not just my better half but my best friend too.........thank you so much. Am so blessed to have you in my life. Love u!
