“Why do we kill people who are killing people to show that killing people is wrong?”

How much blood? How much torture, how much pain causing to others one can see or bear? I mean we all watch movies whether its based on true story or fiction and even from the true story. But I have to tell this in the name of horror movie I have seen couple of mere blood shed for no reason and sometimes I think this is the reason why people are not even scared now anymore of these…!

I wonder why such movies are made may be there are some audience who just like to see blood, cuts, killings and mere torturing and causing pain to people.

I have only one thing to convey please don’t oversee it as we human if become emotion-less then it will be a disaster.

“Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.” ~ James Anthony

A human should react when he or she sees blood, torture, pain and killings that is happening to another human, otherwise if the inside human is dead then no one is surviving.

We should know we ar…

Happen to watch the movie ‘American Gangster’, boy I didn’t know that these two amazing Academy Award Winners Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe both are going to be in it. It was tough for me in the beginning whom to support and I had a slight fear that I might be bias but hey …this is what we say about the best ….you can clearly make out about their talent. You cannot do injustice as their performance will not allow you to do so :)

Amazing movie about a true story of Harlem in 70’s, seems like it was the worst period…

As I love music and my friends all know what I feel without music how life would be :) so am sure you wont be surprised if I say I love to watch American Idol as much as any other music related program.

I watch this program for two reasons – one of course music but I get to hear the new talents and that too so many youngsters which makes you feel proud too about the effort that they put in through. Secondly for Simon Cowell hahaha yes! I am a big fan of him.

I actually like his criticism which is direct without going around the bush he speaks straight. His words might be strong but if you take things in positive criticism and a bit with pinch of humor it goes all well :)

“Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.” ~ Winston Churchill

I some how like him so much that my friend teases me – Don’t call me Simon as I am not …lol!
This post is basically to tell Simon Cowell that…

Valentine’s Day – I was wondering how it was initiated and as the time went ahead how this event became a festival :)

“Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another's personhood.”

Yesterday I was shopping in the evening and I saw this guy who was with his maintenance jacket on top which showed he was working somewhere and just stepped in to the shop and bought hyacinths with a small heart inserted in the pot and yes a tag with ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’.

He paid for these flowers and while doing so he asked the helper guy in the shop did you see a girl with short hair just walking out of the store? She just bought lemonade and the helper guy ran outside to look for and by then this guy took the flower and he forgot the card on the cashier’s table. Suddenly, the cashier said- Sir, you forgot the card that you bought and he said oh!!! Yeah! He was much engrossed in finding his valentine… ! He took the card from the Cahier…

I remember adding a post in my early days of blogging about attending concert in a school and I lived that moment as a kid.

“A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business, live concerts.” ~ Elvis Presley

I yet again got a chance and that was today and feels so proud to see kids growing up with talents each day with performing better and better.

The best part was that this concert was Musical only ;) – now tell me how exiting it could be when your moment of life has no rhythm without music :D

“Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons. You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes
Yes, it so a moment of proud to see kids between 8 to 10 years of age with violin on the stage performing that too six songs by heart without any books, now tell me how many of us can do.. ? Tell me honestly … :D yeah! It really needs that dedication…

I would like to wish my parents a very happy, peaceful, joyful and healthy wedding anniversary today and in the future for many more to come :)

"All weddings are similar, but every marriage is different"

Yes, that's how I feel about my parents wedding!
For my dad, it was love at first sight :) and then what happened is history now though we celebrate that moment even today ;)

“What is not started today is never finished tomorrow.”

As there is a saying, when one door closes another one opens. Yes, that’s how life is and this book of mine is just like that as I make progress on its release.

Me and my friend we are working very hard to put together this book of mine.
It’s like a baby who is growing each day and making progress towards that day when the baby will walk…yes that’s how I feel about this book of mine.

This is the cover page of my book and I want to see what do my friends see when they see the cover of this book :). This could be one of your eye test ;) …lol!

Well the title of this book is ‘Khawabon Ki Zamiin’ meaning ‘Land of dreams’; as I feel this is the land where we dream and we also make our dreams come true.

This book consists of all my poetries belonging to my childhood, my teenage mind and heart and…
