A long indefinite break from the blogNita

Tue, 05 Jan 2010 05:57:51 +0000

I will not be blogging for a while. This means that this blog will be going on a long hiatus and I am not even sure whether I will be returning to blogging. This decision has been a painful one for me as this blog has given me so much. A platform for free expression, […](image)

Avatar – a movie with a green message (Movie Review)Nita

Mon, 21 Dec 2009 08:27:33 +0000

This film is Science Fiction with a difference. The aliens are not evil, but perhaps the human are. Humans being evil is not an uncommon theme as there are war films which veer towards this idea. But Avatar tackles other complex issues as well. It talks of the Balance of Life. That is why this […](image)

What is the best way to choose your future mate?Nita

Thu, 17 Dec 2009 05:52:18 +0000

If our instincts don’t tell us who is the right partner for us (long-term) then what can help us? Do we leave it to chance? Ofcourse not. We try and choose someone with the same interests as us, someone from a similar background, someone with the same values, someone whom we feel we have a lot on common with. But does this really work? There is a theory that one increases one’s chances of getting along in one’s married life if one chooses a partner with a similar temperament. (image)

Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year – Movie Review without spoilersNita

Sun, 13 Dec 2009 13:59:03 +0000

Despite its serious theme, the film is a comedy. The overall movie experience was good. We saw the late night show on Saturday night and the cinema hall was packed. The audience clearly loved the movie. We enjoyed it too although in the first half we felt it was a little slow. About 20 minutes could have been easily cut from the film without it affecting the story. The 2 hours 38 minutes is a little too long. In the second half the movie picks up. (image)

Infidelity in the West and in IndiaNita

Thu, 10 Dec 2009 07:46:31 +0000

The media in America is going beserk over Tiger Woods’ infidelity. Jokes, videos, news reports and blog posts are flying around faster than you can blink. The Indian media has jumped in too, and India’s leading English daily, the Times of India, is reporting the news on the front page! It doesn’t take much imagination […](image)

Is Shashi Tharoor’s speech real and relevant?Nita

Mon, 07 Dec 2009 12:38:53 +0000

A recent speech by Shashi Tharoor is a feel good speech and I would say Chicken Soup for the Indian Soul. Sure, it’s bound to  arouse a certain amount of cynicism because of well, a certain amount of hype. Despite that it’s a speech that can fill one’s heart with hope. It’s not as if  Tharoor […](image)

What is intriguing about signboards from Pune (Puneri Patya) is that they are so explicit! If there is something that can make people laugh it’s the absolute truth told in no uncertain terms. But one cannot help wondering if these signs actually work! Take a look at this signboard for instance. It says: THE BUNGALOW […](image)

Sex Surveys and research tell us how badly India needs sex educationNita

Tue, 01 Dec 2009 08:24:44 +0000

Call it teen marriage or  “legal” teenage sex, but what it results is in teenage pregnancy. It underlines the need for sex education in India, more so than in other countries. Half of India’s women marry before the age of 18 and about 18 percent are married even before the age of 15! Even if […](image)

Improvements in security arrangements in India after 26/11 (Mumbai Terror Attacks)Nita

Thu, 26 Nov 2009 17:53:56 +0000

I don't go by the thought that there is no hope, that India is India, that India will never improve, that nothing will never improve. After 26/11 a few changes have certainly taken place in the past year which I hope will help India become more secure. Sure a lot of things have not improved, but here I am listing the things which have...(image)

Remembering 26/11 – the Mumbai Terror AttacksNita

Wed, 25 Nov 2009 14:45:57 +0000

Tomorrow is the first death anniversary of those who died in the Mumbai Terror Attacks. A reader sent me this video, produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Dan Reed which I thought worth posting here. Clicking on the link will take you to the video. Reed has done a brilliant job. Without saying it in […](image)
