The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend one book, movie, or song, that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?
I am not really sure I can recommend a book,a movie or a song that explains what humans are all about.
I cannot think of a book I read a movie I watched or a song I heard explains what humans are all about.
However if I’m allowed I can sum up my thoughts and explain to the extraterrestrial outside that humans were created out of a handful of clay, they were given the required health,happiness and intelligence to make the world a better place to live. God overlooked the point that Satan who was made of fire was subjected to bow before Adam,while all the other angels obeyed God, Satan refused,as a result he was thrown out of paradise.This did not bode well with Satan who promised to make life difficult for humans.
Now we have good and bad people,ones who are trying to do good to humanity and others who are doing the exact opposite.
Good and evil are living side by side. When something good happens to our planet,Satan takes over and makes sure everything good is undone by his followers.
I have collected this information from books, movies and songs I have heard. I had to give my support to all three mediums to know and explain all about humans.
S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Night! What’s your favorite way to spend Saturday Night?
I spend my Saturday night watching a movie. If I don’t like the movie, I read my novel. If I finish reading it way before my bedtime,I answer some emails from friends.
I listen to Tagore songs for a few minutes ,then I go to bed.
I can be as stubborn as grass stain or as easy going as a light breeze. It depends entirely on the circumstances. If my feelings are hurt by someone close to me, I make sure they remember how they hurt me. I show how stubborn I can be because I don’t want a repetition of what they did to me.
Let me explain how and why I show my stubborn nature. I was newly married when I first came to Montreal . One day I asked my husband if we could go and watch a movie, his reply was ,”Go with my brother”, I was unhappy with this reply, it was totally unexpected.
My reply to this was,”I didn’t marry your brother, I married you.”
He couldn’t reply and kept quiet. After that incidence I did not ask to go to a movie anymore not only that when he asked me I declined.
If I were involved in a movie, I’d like to be the producer. I think producer is the one with the cash. If I feel the movie is ready to be released ,I’d say: “Everything looks fine,the show must go on.”
Last time I broke a rule was in college. We didn’t mean to but circumstances made us do it. There were four of us, we got permission from our teacher to watch a movie in the movie hall. The condition was we had to have a chaperone with us. My classmate said her aunt would go with us. We were ready and waiting for the aunt to show up. After almost an hour my classmate got a note saying the aunt was unable to go.
Since we were ready and waiting by the college gate we made up our mind to go. We were not sure of one of the girls who was unpredictable. We clearly told her we’d be going without the aunt,if it was okay with her. She promised it was.
We set off on the assumption that things would work out.It was a very hot day,we waited for an auto rickshaw,and got one after walking a few yards. We reached the movie hall,got our tickets, and sat down to watch the movie. Everything went well. We came back happy we managed to watch the movie without the aunt.
Back in our dormitory we found the unpredictable girl restless. We asked her,what was wrong. She said nothing. We went about doing our work. Suddenly one of us was called by the teacher. We didn’t know why. Soon we found out the said girl went and told the teacher we’d gone without a chaperone. We were summoned one at a time and chastised for breaking college rules.
Then she told us to assemble in the auditorium. Sister Joseph Mary was livid. She said everything she could think of. She praised the girl for being honest. We were angry.We were not in trouble,but we learned an important lesson,not to trust the girl anymore!
Rain days (Photo credit: @Doug88888)
Singin’ In The Rain, and a perfect afternoon. I am not sure if there was a perfect afternoon,where I live.The month of June is anything but pleasant.It has been raining almost every day.It’s cold,so much so,I sometimes forget if it is summer or fall. That is beside the point,inside it is toasty warm. I have to turn up the heat instead of the air conditioner.This is the situation here.
I will go back when I was in Comilla.We had a lot of pleasant rainy afternoons. I remember once, my younger siblings and I decided to go out to watch a movie.Mom was at home,busy with housework,four of us quietly went out of the house.We took a rickshaw,and were on our way to the movie hall.I don’t remember what we watched,Mom had no idea where we went. On our way back the street leading to our house was uneven,there were puddles everywhere,the rickshaw driver lost his balance.Four of us fell out on the street and were completely drenched. We came into the house,Mom saw us,she thought we were playing in the rain.We pretended that’s how we were wet. We had fun,loads of fun.We couldn’t tell Mom what we were up to.
We didn’t sing in the rain,we certainly were wet in the rain.
The name of the movie is Jyoti.It is made in Bollywood.There are some fine actors in this movie.The problem here is the same old story of step mother’s treatment towards,the step son.I am not sure how a two year old can survive all that opium mixed with his milk daily. I am not a physician,but the question does arise in my mind,how this is being done to an infant and the father doesn’t have a clue.
There are too many villains in this movie.The step mother,her helper,then the step mother’s son and his evil friends.The movie is crowded with evil people,yet the man of the house is totally unaware of all this. The victim i.e the son of the previous wife gets married to a beautiful woman,who magically changes the crazy man into a sane human being.
The movie is full of violence,I don’t think it is necessary. It is not a good one to be shown to younger generation. In a world full of violence in real life.The producer and directors can help a lot by not having so much violence in their movies.
I watched the movie on youtube because of my two favourite actors.
