A Readoholic / Foodoholic / Movie-oholic’s Utopia

Everyone must have a different Utopia. And if I had a place in mine, it would be all filled with food and books and food and books, an occasionally a movie or two.
When I was in my final year of Engineering in Guwahati, I “nurtured” the habit of going out to eat every day and for a movie, every alternate week. When I landed on Mumbai, to my utter delight I found that only a kilometer away stood the building of my dreams – the Movie Hall. No wonder, Saturday and Sunday evenings were spent watching the latest show in the Movie Complex.
Eventually, some of my friends and I decided to go for a movie on every Friday evening, after office hours. Bookmyshow came into picture and hours were spent deciding on the perfect time to leave office and on reaching the place before the trailers are shown. As we realized we are spending a lot of money on our movie-affair we relied on discounts and coupons – early bird discounts at the hall and Rs. 50-100 off on CupoNation.
Now that ten months have ela…

Interstellar : A Retrospection

Initial release: November 4, 2014 (London) Director: Christopher Nolan Screenplay: Jonathan Nolan, Christopher Nolan Cast : Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain, Wes Bentley, etc. My Ratings :4.7/5 5/5

Watching Interstellar was more than just fun - it was thought-provoking, and for an emotional fool like me, it was emotions-provoking too.

A story well-thought-of, a movie well-made.

The 169 minutes I spent watching it made me awe at the immensity of everything.

There are times when I think that the human race just screwed it all up by inventing money and making us all so materialistic about trying to achieve something great in this illusion called life. But there are times like this when we realize there's more in the world than just a mere life to live; there'…

Chasing Tomorrow

They say that if you take care of the present the future will fall in place.

I doubt it.


Almost two months ago I was all at sea on what to do to make my future better than my present.
"Priorities" was the word and I had a handful, all at the same level.
I took some time and prioritized them into various levels, my first priority being "today".

A week later, I was happier than never before - fewer worries, fewer goals, all focused.


Two months have elapsed and now I feel I am just stuck with today. I don't know what's in store for me in the future (Well, nobody does). But even my today is slipping out of my hands.
I'm losing my grip. I am losing control so I am letting it go.

But sometimes, I repeat, sometimes life's not so much of a fairy tale when you let go of things.

May be you need to let go of only the wrong things and stick to the right things and hold them till your hands bleed.

My hands aren't bleeding. I let go and it doesn't take m…
