“Whatever limits us, we call Fate”

It was all so good that how time flew no one realized. It was time for Seema to deliver and she had gone home to deliver, but Seema kept on thinking about Anant. Anant used to be in touch with Seema however, one day he called and told her to be good with her hubby. He is been forced to marry as per his parents. These words made Seema shocked and she was very unhappy.
“Laughter is the shock absorber that eases the blows of life”
Seema delivered a baby boy and was happy to be with the kid and forget all that she had been thinking of having a good peaceful life with Anant.Mean while, Anant got married and he brought his wife Rekha (meaning a line in Hindi) to Seema’s house. Seema was not able to take this however she managed being a good host along with her hubby Samir (meaning wind in Hindi).

It was summer when Seema met Anant in one of there office training session. When she met him she never thought it would end in this way…!
“Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you've found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.” ~ Lawrence Block
Don’t know what was it but he was just crazy about her at the first sight itself…! Always chasing her and asking her questions so that he can stare her while she is replying to him!
She always found safe and confident about herself, since she was married. One day when she came by and told her friends at work that she is pregnant…instead of feeling happy for her, Anant felt bad and he started thinking that Seema will go on maternity leave and then he wont be able to meet her …!

This weekend, even though I spent times at friends house…I did had the chance to watch two of the movies! Nishabdh (Speechless in Hindi) and Namesake…(what a coincidence that the name starts with N..lol I didn’t notice until now)
“Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.” ~ Ingrid Bergman
Well, when I was watching Nishabdh…I was telling myself that I can’t see Bacchan doing this …and as the movie went on…this actor really proved himself…! I do believe that one can fall in love any time and anywhere …it has no age bar …or should I say…when one falls in love one can never know…!Bacchan’s acting was so good that at one point I could see Bacchan looking younger than what he is :D…he is too good that’s what he has proven.Besides the girl Jiah Khan who has got real good photogenic shots in this however I don’t give credit to her acting.

I know we all say that every mother in this world is the best…all mothers are born great to be that kind where every child will thank her for countless years!
But I know one and yes I am not talking about my mom as to every child his/her mom is the best :D!
“I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine - she helps me grow, prosper, and reach great heights” ~Adabella Radici
Today I want to dedicate this post to one of the mother whom I know and I find it so great that I came across her in this life time :D
“The sweetest sounds to mortals given
Are heard in Mother, Home, and Heaven”
~William Goldsmith BrownShe was brought up in a well to do family…the times were such when girls were not sent to school… in such times she graduated and was married to a Doctor – Surgeon! She traveled with her husband to different countries and when she tells the stories of those days…it makes clear that romance she had with her husband is still young and cherished in her heart…even though her husband…

How many times it happens that you go to the library pick a movie thinking it will be a good time pass and you figure out it was the ultimate selection and decision that you made to watch it?
“It is not doing the thing we like to do, but liking the thing we have to do, that makes life blessed.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von GoetheI was never expecting anything that I will be so much touched with this movie from every aspect of it, and yes my favorite Sir Ben Kingsley …as I watch his movie the respect for him grows more and more :D
“To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.”
This movie “House of Sand and Fog”, directed by Vadim Perelman; is about an Iranian immigrant who has spent most of his savings trying to enhance his daughter's chances of a good marriage. Once she is married, he spends the remaining funds on a house at an auction, without any knowledge putting him and his family in the middle of a legal tussle with the house…

To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring

All of a sudden life seems to be too busy…guess with what???
Too many outings, picnic and BBQ and too much of reading too! That ‘too’ word will tell about the happenings.
I just remembered my Toronto days…when spring time comes my gardening fever catches me so wildly that, looking at my craze my neighbor also starts gardening and watering his lawn :D! I wonder many times Nature gives so many opportunity to us to celebrate.
“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” ~ John Ruskin
Lately, lot of meeting and greeting friends is taking place and when friends gather we discuss on so many endless topics and religion being one of them.
All these discussions and things that is happening around makes me think of my childhood days when there was no such thing that differentiated any one whether its religion, cast or even province…we all were like the beads of one necklace.

I have seen many movies on World War II and Holocaust movies too, and always wondered these are all the tortures that people went through and the Jews who were targeted and were mass murdered; but no one to come back from those place and tell there experience as what they were and what they went through in the concentration camps and later if they survived how they were treated!!!

“Anything, anything would be better than this agony of mind, this creeping pain that gnaws and fumbles and caresses one and never hurts quite enough”
When this movie ‘Fateless’ (directed by Lajos Koltai ) started, I didn’t know it is about the Holocaust! As it proceeded my interest grew upon this metropolitan teen who like any of us, living a carefree life with family where not much related to religion etc. All of a sudden he is separated from his family as part of the rushed and random deportation of his city’s large Jewish population. He is brought to a concentration camp where his existence becomes an adven…
