Can't say!!

I can't believe that some people vote "can't say" in polls... Who in their right minds wastes 3 Rs per sms just to let others know they don't have any opinion!! I have seen it in news channel polls, newspaper polls and the list goes on.. I guess someday in the future even the electronic voting machines for parliamentary elections will have an option that says-- "can't decide" .. I mean there is a limit! If you have nothing to say about something then simply keep shut! why waste your money and somebody else's time ( includes my ranting here)..

Again, i have seen people dedicating songs @Rs 10 per song at 2.30 pm.. Shyamlal dedicates "tere bina ab na jeena" to ramlal.. What are the chances of Ramlal watching the show at that time at a crappy channel which plays shitty songs like that? What if Shyamlal's fiancee manmohanlal was watching the show at the time and gets to know about the affair between ramlal and shyamlal? 

Somebody may take the moral of the story to be my miserly attitude, they may ask, why do I care if someone wants to spend their money so that their name appears for 3.36 nanoseconds on national television,, all i can say is that from the next time plz make ur decision count...

25th Hour (2002)

This is your last day of freedom;
The last day to smell the flowing air;
Last chance to look at things random;
Noticing which before didn't seem fair...

What will you do when you learn that today is the last day of your freedom before being imprisoned? Do u mourn? do u cry? do u try to run away? or u rejoice the last moments, with your friends? Montgomrey Brogan faces the same dilemma when he is accused of hiding drugs at his place and has to go to prison for atleast 7 years. he decides to take in all the good things with him, at the same time worrying about "what will happen to me in prison"..... And all throughout this film we follow monty's journey through his last day and the reactions and interactions with his close ones...

Edward Norton is brilliant as usual in his portrayal of this seemingly confident but gullible inside character. Philip Seymour Hoffman does the role of a teacher smitten with his student but unsure of the next course of action to perfection. Barry Pepper uses his enticing good looks to play the successful broker and a realist friend.. Rosario Dawson as naturelle was completely natural but sometimes lacking expressions.. All in all the whole cast did a splendid job.

Some scenes of the film command special mention. The "f**k you all" scene where monty lets out his anguish in the form of hatred for the several racial groups and right before the end where people of all those races are seen waving and smiling at monty and he reciprocates. These are very symbolic of harmony and are really cherish-able. The last monologue by monty's father where he gives another chance to set everything right, to run away and build a new home, to realize all the unfulfilled dreams is another scene which makes us think about the futility of freedom....

On the other-side

Staring into the star-shine, waiting for the dawn of my dreams;
stranded pieces of hope loitering above the sparkling streams,
Near, yet so far away stood alone the darkening horizon,
Found another companion,who was also waiting with anticipation..
Waiting for a sky not as azure,for a wind a little pure;
For a soul full of love; for an evergreen cove;
A place which doesn't have the need of rhymes,
Where shadows don't mess up the lights, 
And lights don't mess up the shadows,
Where grey and black are a shade apart,
there, on the other-side of life-dream-reality,, I will be waiting.......
