the title is probably not the most appropriate for the content, but heh, that was what i came up with and the questions didnt seem to follow.

am about to finish the book The Magic of thinking Big by David J.Schwartz, a wonderful read, Inspiriing, motivating, guiding, helping and more – one of the biggest inconfident person.

a coincidence that i have also finished watching the movie (saw again after 1992, i guess)Roja – a moving tale about a young woman’s love for her husband and the great lengths she goes to save him from militants.truly inspiring, is what i can say, after how she courageously overcomes the obstacles that one would encounter in a hostile environ,made more difficult, when u dont know the language that is spoken there.

and yes also met with her-which is more important than anything that has happened to me in a few weeks.the fact that i never had a relationship with her, doesnt seem to lessen the impact that her presence did.was thinking abt her for a few days, and fotunately(?) got to meet her.i cant believe a girl can have such an impact on me, i keep promising myself no relationships for a few years and here she comes shatterring all my determiniation.do i love her???

maybe i was thinking abt this, when i wrote the title.

anyway cant beleive I took 34 mins to write this.


it just occured to me, i can see a lot of desi blogs, the bloggers actually in the US.i am living in Oz land and cant find any desi blog, where the blogger is based in Australia. C’mon Aussies (desis) C’mon.


He saw her.
He liked her.
He wanted to be out with her.
He did not ask her, then.
He does not remember what happened in-between then and the time he told her friend.
He was not sure, then.
He got distracted.
He mad a mistake.
He regrets.
He proposed.
She disapproved.
He tries to forget her.
He remembers her, more than ever, now.
He is not sure, now.

a pause- broken

Been some time since I Blogged, I am writing (posting) this not bcoz I have something to post but bcoz I would like to break the pause.

few things happened since the last time i posted (some personal, others not)- like Intel-Mac alliance,disastrous start to the Ashes tour for australia (lost to england, bangladesh and an english county club)-come to mind immediately.

did watch a few films in the weekends that passed without any post here, Mr and Mrs.Smith-film with an attractive lead cast and nothing else to talk abt and a very enjoyable Wedding Date.

anyway as the pause is broken, i feel a bit satisfied and will try to write something more interestng next time.

Fos pou svini, To and Malcom

Fos pou svini, To (2000) aka Fading light is the greek movie, I was talking abt in my earlier post and the actress i was referring to was Viki Volioti . i can sometimes push myself just too hard to remember things.the last two days,I had been fervently searching the web (googling mainly) to get these details.IMDB was pretty bad when it came to plot search.but finally googled SBS to get these details.after getting the movie title, i started diligently searching for Viki Volioti’s picture and couldn’t find anything on google, Yahoo helped me in finding that she is also known as Vicky Volioti and then i got to see some pics, she looked good but i was not impressed with those pics (not her).I read somewhere that yahoo’s search is getting better (than google’s), i would agree to an extent because when i search for kesavan on yahoo my 2 sites come in the first page, while in google they don’t should justify what i read abt yahoo, i suppose.

while searching for the greek movie, i was also trying to remember a very good aussie movie which i saw 6-7 months ago and i remembered it as Malcom (1986), a movie abt a very very likeable character, i remember that the soundtrack was also impressive.

the thing that surprised me was i found it extremely difficult to find these movies on the internet. i guess there is nothing like a human brain when it comes to processing and finding data hidden somewhere in the grey cells.

i am sitting here, typing this on a friday night after having pizza from ilianas, after a hard days work (my boss would not agree, but i am entitled to my opinions and for god’s sake it’s my site) and after meeting someone I really like and am unable to forget. am working tomorrow as well, so guess should get gud nights sleep, as i start early.c what is in store tomorrow.

some more movie stuff

just finished watching Malena on SBS and enjoyed watching it.the main characters in the film are a 13 year old boy and a very attractive women played by eminently endowed Monica Bellucci .showing the impact that a woman can have even on a young boy.it also shows how rumour and jealousy can play a big part in ruining peoples life and how time is a big healer.the film was gr8 to watch not only because of Bellucci, but also because I like seeing Italian architecture creating wonders in the streets of sicily.
i love seeing european films, most of them seem to have a soul in them, they are very realistic and people oriented, exploring the emotions of humans against the backdrop of beautiful architecture.some other films i enjoyed watching are Fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain, Le (Amélie, 2001)– the innocent screen charmer , Abre los ojos (1997) – the english version Vanilla Sky which i didnt like much.
One of the best films I had seen was a greek one, the title of which i am unable to remember, to my dismay.the film was abt this boy who is a gr8 violonist (misses his father who is divorced from his mother), tries to come in terms with his mother’s new lover and while losing his sight is helped by a very very beautiful teacher (i wud like to remember the name of the movie, just, so i can get more info on this actress) all in a picturesque greek island, just amazing.i shall leave the review to the people @ The Internet Movie Database, as they seem to know what they r doing, unlike me.
thanks SBS for showcasing these movies, i am not sure wheteher i would have been able to watch these movies back in India.
that’s it for now, not working 2morrow (semantically 2day), but wud love 2 get 2 bed, without having to worry abt getting up-to go to work.

a tamil film in Time’s Top 100

it is great to know that the Film Nayakan (1987) is in Time Magazines Top 100 movies.I like Kamal Hassan (the actor) and Mani Ratnam (the director), these guys are widely respected in the Indian film industry and also in abroad.

it is also interesting to note that most of the top 100 films are non hollywood based guess these films are recognised not only for the fine perfomance by the actors and great direction of the directors, but also because of the universality of the themes presented and also their relevance even today.

i am not the best person to tell abt the intricacies of moviemaking or the sometimes subtle meaning in movies, but the movies I enjoyed watching apart from Nayakan are Goodfellas (1990) and Pulp Fiction (1994).

i wud have included One flew over the cuckoos nest (1975) , if i had a chance, but who am i to include or exclude???


1:30 pm here and am still awake (or atleast typing this).Just wanna write, which I seem to enjoy (yesterday) was a gr8 day (I wish)..No just an average day, went for a walk along Brighton Rd for abt 40 mins, the weather was gr8 especially in the last 20 mins (around 5:00 pm), then went to a friends place as Mango (mangaraju my house mate and friend) asked me to come with him, after this met with the duo of Sri and Prasad (other friends) @ Hare Rama hare Krishna in sth melb (Danks St) and also Sri’s friend (trio) hritesh and (what, after trio) another guy ..das ( who seems to preach Krsna consciousness).A lively (?) discussion on gita and way of living followed, as usual I was for most part a silent spectator, Das also talked about a Krsna consciousness meeting held every sat abt 7:45pm, maybe will go sometime.

What followed was something very exciting, well am, just teasing.Went to Bombay Club in Ormond (just opposite to Ormond railway station) had a nice dinner, paid by Prasad.

here I am after looking @ a few things on the internet (what kind of things does one look @, @ this time??, before u start assuming, was looking @ some other blogs to get an idea of how I can improve this one, was also looking @ a few other things).

Pity there seems to be no alternative for DC++ for Mac, as I was told DC++ is gr8 in windows.At the moment I feel that Limewire is a gr8 software, really fast file sharing program for Mac.As for as torrents are concerned Bits On Wheels is a great BitTorrent client for Mac.My fav IndianTorrent/Indian torrents site is tmstorrents (torrent files for Indian Movies and Songs) and for torrents search Torrent Typhoon seems to be very good.

maybe end with this 2day.
