Day Twelve: Critique a Piece of Work

Today I will write about a movie I watched yesterday. It’s a Bollywood movie. The title of the movie is Arth, it’s a Hindi movie; it means purpose.

The story begins with the wife telling her husband how much she wishes she had a house of her own.

Within a few days the husband gives her a key to a new house, with a thick pack of paper money. It’s not unusual for the wife to wonder, where did this money come from? He makes up some stories. The foolish wife believes him.

Days and months go by, his absence bothers the wife, she questions her hubby, who had no choice but to admit he was spending time with the woman who gave him the money to buy the house and also the bundle of paper money. And that the wife should be thankful to this other woman.

This brought about a lot of fights between the two. The wife returned the keys and part of the money.

The two characters separated, he went to the other woman. She went looking for a job. She was unable to find one, in the beginning, later found something.

Meanwhile she met a man, who declared he was a singer. He found odd jobs and spent his time singing among the people he knew. Hoping someone will find him and give him a break.

He got the break, overnight became popular and started earning a lot of money. This singer met the woman before and tried helping her. One day he told her, ‘now you’ve become self-sufficient; you can live your life alone with no worries.’

While I was sad for the wife, I had no sympathy for both men. I was pleased to see she turned down the other man, who wanted to marry her. She reminded him of the time when he told her, ‘now you’ve become independent, you do not need anyone.’

In the end her longtime maid was imprisoned for killing her husband. Pooja the main character in the story, decides to raise her maid’s young daughter.

I liked the ending of this complex story. At least, after all the hardships she had to under go, she finally found her purpose, her longtime desire to raise a child.

Day Twelve: Critique a Piece of work



All sorts of pies and pastries are on display here.

I could not find a piece of work to critique. I looked at some desserts I cooked a while ago and this thought came to my mind, the top two dessert is my creation, the bottom is all sorts of pies created by a restaurant in Montreal. 

Keeping in mind I’m not an experienced cook, my dessert  looks pretty good, if I compare with the  pies by an expert!

Memoir : A House in the Sky: Authors Amanda Lindhout and Sarah Corbett

This memoir is about a woman who was kidnapped. The kidnappers were mean, ugly, they tortured, starved and threatened to kill her. She went through such extreme abuse but never gave up hope that she would get her freedom one day.

While reading this story, I realized that  some humans are cruel and have no conscience. There were times I wanted  to skip the pages to know how this story ends. 

I forced myself to read this book, I am glad I read it from beginning to end. I feel better it had a happy ending for Amanda and her friend.

Day Twelve: Critique a Piece of Work

It was not easy to find something to write on this assignment, I thought about books, movies or a piece of artwork, none of them satisfied me as I thought how much do I know about them.

I Thought of writing about a book, as I had read so many past five months. It was difficult to pick which one. Rather than waste time because I’m already late, I went to the WordPress resource page. One that caught my attention is Pet Adoption.

As I know what one goes through when deciding to adopt a pet, I felt I have more knowledge of pet adoption, than any other topic.

Two years ago we adopted two felines from the same litter, actually we planned to get one, but when we noticed the poor feline was very lonely, we bought the other one from the same litter. When the second one came the first one was very happy.We named them Gabriel and Raphael. While these felines are fun to have around, they make our going out of town challenging. We are opposed to putting them in the kennels in the city, we have seen some, how they take care of them is terrible.

We had three felines before these two, we used to leave them in the kennel, when we went on vacation, they put them in cages, have a piece of plastic litter pan which is no larger than a a foot in length and the width maybe six inches. I was sure our cats could not use these litter pans, then the question  is how do they use these pans, if not what do i.e the workers do  to take care of it.

Our previous felines were scared when we took them to the kennels, which proved they were mishandled.

At present we have two they are a Siamese. We have managed to find friends who took care of them while we were out of town. This we find  is increasingly difficult. This is one of the drawbacks of adopting pets.

We love them, they are good company but they can be very destructive, they have torn the tablecloths on the dining table, broken table lamps and never stop doing evil things, I wonder is it our fault, we did not discipline them. So shall we consider, the maxim, ‘spare the rod spoil the felines’ or ‘spare the water bottle ruin the felines.’IMG_0857the siamese breed


Writing 101, Day Twelve: Critique a piece of work

You can approach this assignment in your own style and preferred format.

Signal hill, in St. John’s NL, Canada, wikipedia image

NLA_StJohns1_tango7174.jpg (1500×600)

This is signal hill in St. John’s , Newfoundland, Canada.It is a hill which overlooks the city of St. John’s, NL and Labrador, Canada.

Since mid 17th century fortifications were placed, because of its strategic placement. In 1762 the French surrendered to a British force at the battle of Signal Hill.

On 12th December 1901, the first transatlantic wireless transmission was received by Guglielmo Marconi.

The US maintained anti-aircraft guns on the hill during  the second world war.

Today it’s a National Historic Site of Canada.

It’s a large well kept place where tourists and local citizens visit during the summer months. In winter high winds @ 68 mph deters most people to go there. Those who are heedless of the warning are a few, who perhaps like to dare nature. But we all know it is a futile task and in trying to be brave they are in danger of losing their lives or might be critically injured.

This was my husband’s most favorite place to visit. I was not so passionate about it. For me visiting once was enough. I felt I’d rather visit some other place that I didn’t see.

When we get some visitors we take them to signal hill, hey, we say this is a very important site, you must not miss visiting it.

I sometimes wonder, if our over enthusiasm to view a piece of history might not bode well with our guests, to be honest what else do we have to boast about ? Shopping centers , No, they have better looking ones; immediately there will be a comparison made and we’d look so silly we’d wish we could hide our faces from their sarcastic grin.

So I’ve decided to present our historic site, ‘The Signal Hill’ it’s a special place for us, St. John’s citizens.

Blogging 101, Day Twelve: Increase your commenting confidence

Today’s task : Read six posts written in response to Monday’s prompt, ‘Brilliant Disguise’. and leave comments on at least two of them.

I was able to read two posts on Monday’s prompt.I liked all of them. I wrote my comment for both . Each one had a message which I enjoyed reading.

In Marie Griffith’s post , she quoted Judy Garland’s Quote: Always be a first rate version of yourself,instead of a second rate version of someone else.

Another post I truly agree with is the post by Crazy Canadian Saver: Why it’s pointless to keep up with Joneses.

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I had an appointment at 10:45 AM . It was a very cold day the temperature was 9 degrees Celsius and it was raining.

When I got out of my house I did not realize that on the 21st July it felt like Autumn.  I thought what happened did I sleep through the summer, it’s the only thing I could think of.

One lady looked at me and said, “Yes my darling it is July and the temperature is what you see on the billboard. You did not sleep through the summer, but you forgot it is St. John’s Newfoundland, it is famous for rain, drizzle, and fog.”

I thanked the lady for her humor. I came home three hours later, exhausted, could not concentrate on the work before me. I had to take a nap in the afternoon. My whole day was ruined, this morning I made up mind to complete day twelve assignment.
