10,000 B,C

Recently I happened to see a good movie named 10,000 B.C, a Warner Bros. film directed by Roland Emmerich. The subject revolves around the hunter tribe called Yagahl. A tribe residing far away in some remote mountain range.The film effectively shows how the tribe survives from the then dangerous animals and lives in groups. The Yagahl s also face the attack of some other strange people and finally survive. There is one old wise woman called mother in the film that tells the future prophecy and can see the times ahead through her third eye. Finally the yagahl tribe survives but faces a sad departure of wise mother who helps giving her life to the future of the tribe who is All the scenes in the movie are very appropriate. The story flows in a sequence and nicely knits the scenes. There are no unwanted shots and exposures in the film.I liked this film especially because it makes me think about the human being who tries to survive and save his group, his community. It has been in the blood of humans to stay in groups and be a part of one. This film is a very good example of the same. This is the case since ages. But then why are we not the same right now? Why don t we strive to be together? Why do we fight amongst ourselves for nothing? This reminds me of one very meaningful scene in the film where a tiger, a huge tiger gets stuck somewhere in the water and the hero of the film saves his life. Later when the hero is in trouble this tiger comes forward and saves the hero, a returning favor done to him earlier. This teaches us that even animals are grateful to us. They would never let us down when in trouble. This film has raised many queries in my mind which have no answers. Each one should watch this film and see what the tribe goes through to survive in such adverse situations. This is possible only if we work together as a group and without pampering false pride which is larger than life today.All in all a good film, a different topic and thought provoking!!

Just another day!

I was just driving to library right now and got lost in the scenary around. Today the weather is so very beautiful and cozy. It is purely rainy day and yet no rains. It is totally cloudy and may rain any time. But then yesterday evening it rained quite heavily. And as the after effects, today all the trees are lush green and full with life. The roads are clean and go long long way. They are edged with beautiful trees with various shades of colour.....yes...Almighty surely is a wonderful are popping up from all over...and making the long road look envious. Sky is touching the ground far away somewhere and making earth look really like a round colourful ball....I dont know but while driving I just felt that I should keep on going and imaging all this in my mind forever....and of course catching some scenes in my cam that others could also njoy the show I just experienced :))....

Experiencing Niagara....

This weekend we had been to Niagara of the seven wonders of the world. Though I had enjoyed this beauty before, it was again like a first experience this time as well. It is a miracle. Looking at it make us believe in that Almighty and his skills. U just can’t beat them.
We spent almost every time of the day there, Niagara in the night, Niagara in the early morning, Niagara in the afternoon and Niagara in the evening. Each time we saw the falls they appeared to be totally different and enjoyable. The roaring fall that takes a back seat when it falls down from the flow reminds me of peace and serenity experienced after a strenuous fight to achieve something that’s impossible. The river that flows before it becomes a fall is like a bubbly creature who doesn’t know what it posses in itself.....The flowing water that gives pleasure to the human kind and gives happiness to every tourist there is so very unbiased.

The flood lights that are there in the night making an artificial rainbow on the fall are really amazing. Hats off to the person who initiated this idea and made us njoy that. There is a place called cave of the winds at the falls...where u can literally feel the water on your body....the water that is from famous NIAGARA in India people feel about waters from GANGA. The deck they have built is so appropriate to enjoy the water that flows.
The maid of the mist ride.The boat that takes us right under the fall....give us an experience to the mighty fall that is seen from so far. I saw this fall from all angles. The one flowing down under my feet, the one from the side view, the one flowing from the top, and the one where I was practically under it. Every time I was there I thanked God for the same. What a miracle he has created and there are his soldiers who are preserving them like treasure. God bless them.
Mom n dad are sooo happy that they are falling short of words. I could feel the happiness and satisfaction and the feeling of fullness on their face. I am happy I could make them happy :)
It was an awesome experience...
