Dhobi Ghat..!!

What is this movie..?? I am not able to understand it or maybe i am not able to understand myself..

The story is a juxtaposition of 4 stories and i don't know which one has affected me the most.. But yes.. It has affected me.. I am not able to stop thinking about it today..

I think or feel that the story of Arun(Aamir Khan) has reached to me quite well.. His confused attitude and shying away from the crowds or not even shying, just staying away from it, connects to me.. His ultra connectivity with the story of Yasmin and his feel about it is awesome..

I wonder and even applaud the change of moods of Arun as per the life of Yasmin.. It is so real and yet so unreal that we are affected by the lives of people whom we even don't know.. But yet, their condition of plight saddens us too, maybe not for a long time, but yes it does..

And then again we throw away this feeling by thinking,"What shit..!! Why am i bothered..??". This is not a question that we ask just to get away from this feeling but its a statement of wonder that we utter to understand this human nature which has surprised us for an eternity..

The last scene of the movie is something which i am not able to get.. The act that Munna(Pratik Babbar) does is what i am finding a bit hard to understand.. Does it shows that he had understood the difference between him and Shai(Monica).. Or is it the feeling of love and that he just wants to see her happy..

All in all, the movie has left a huge impression on my mind but still, i am not able to understand it..

But wanna some more of these kind..

Indian Football..!! Is this the rising..??

India have just finished at the last position in the ongoing AFC Asian Cup after getting a beating from Australi, Bahrain and South Korea..

We scored a total of three goals in the 3 matches that we played..

To any unknown person, a person who just follows the top teams and clubs of the world blindly and just sees a win as a proof of betterment..

But this team of Bob Houghton has achieved what other teams had never ever done in my life of Football following..

This team has made it to my hearts by the way they have played.. The way they have bravely faced the top teams of the world.. Their this attitude shows the mental development they have developed since they have begun playing the sport to its and their true nature..

It is foolish to expect a team of a ranking 142 to beat a team of 26.. But i think that finally this sport is excelling in our country..

Bhaichung Bhutia has made a team out of a bunch of good footballers.. It is a great disappointment that he was not able to play the AFC Asian Cup but still he won many hearts by his 12 minute appearance in the last league match against South Korea..

I was filled with euphoria and pride when he came on the field in the 80th minute.. The sense of joy that prevailed amongst the spectators as he came running on the field gave me goosebumps.. The people were happy to see their hero come on the field and not crying over the ongoing game.. I.M. Vijayan had rightly said,"Bhutia is God's gift to Indian Football", which this player has proved time and again..
The handing over of the arm band by Climax Lawrence also enthralled me..

The ongoing status of this game tells us a story that we have players who can match the top players in the world.. But its our responsibility to train and help them to get to that level..

Sunil Chhetri's association with the Kansas City is a proof that if tried a little harder, Indian Football can again reach and even surpass its Golden period of the 60's.. But it needs inspiration and support from its own countrymen who take out a little time out of watching Cricket and give it to Football..
