A Perfect Adam.

    Hello, dear God!
    May I come in for a while? Uh, sorry for disturbing you, God.  A thousand apologies for vitiating the peace of your sanctum. But, I have a proposition for you. So, could you please spare a few minutes of your precious time for this lowly mortal and give her a patient hearing?
    You see, I have been thinking- well, you made me a 'thinker', so, thats what I do best! So, I have been thinking about your creations. You created the world, the beautiful nature all around  to appreciate and admire and then you created Adam. Then, to give Adam company you created Eve and then you went off on a vacation! God, were you in such a hurry to go on your vacation? I think you were....Adam is living proof of it! No complaints about Eve, though. Eve is perfect. But,, you could have done a better job there, God.
     Actually, I feel, had a Goddess taken up the job of creating Adam, she certainly would have done better as she had such a perfect example in front of her- YOU! Human nature, as you know, is such that we are never satisfied with what we get. We always want more, want things perfect...want a perfect life. Now, we know that life can never be perfect. Thats okay. But, at least the life partner ought to be perfect. Life would be such a pleasant journey!
     God, its not today's Eve who yearns for a perfect Adam. Do you know Draupadi? Of course you know her. You are Mr. Know All, after all! So, Draupadi once invoked Lord Shiva and asked for a husband who was honest, strong, skilled, handsome and knowledgeable. But, Shiva said that she would have all five men that she wanted because no single man, except God, could have all these qualities! And the rest is history! See? That is why I said that had a goddess created Adam, she would have created a perfect, 'sarva guna  sampanna'  Adam. And Mahabharat would never have happened!
     And do you know God, Eve wants a perfect Adam because she herself is perfection personified! i mean, look at how you made her! She is beautiful- the beauty salon bills sing in her praise! She is skilled and knowledgeable; she knows how the human mind works and is therefore deft at handling varied personalities and their inflated egos. She is strong- stepping out of her comfort zone and stepping into a completely alien territory after marriage as well as facing those aliens and bonding with them needs strength. Can Adam do such a thing with even 50% ease? Never. And she is honest- honest in accepting that her Adam is born with a set of imperfections and a lot of scope for improvement Well, that does need integrity, doesn't it?
     So, there you are. Adam DOES need to be worked upon. But, is  it too late? Could you stop the production, redo the mould and then restart the production? Or something simpler, like wave your magic wand,"Abracadabra", and lo! we get a new and improved Adam who is strong, knowledgeable, skilled ( in every manner imaginable),honest ( in accepting his mistakes without any ego hassles) ,handsome as well as sensitive (to our feelings) and yes, a very good listener! A brand new Adam in a brand new package! Wow!! It would be a dream come true for the entire womanhood on this planet!
    Umm.....okay, I can see you are losing patience. I will leave you in peace, God. But, do think over my proposition and see what you can do about it. Eve will be ever so grateful to you if you fulfil her wish.
     So, God, dear dear God, kindly consider and do the needful. Thats all- for now. I take your leave with a lot of hope in my heart and dreams in my eyes. Looking forward to some miracles!
     Have a good day!

A pleasant surprise.

Life does that. Springs surprises when you are least expecting any. And  you are left baffled, overwhelmed, ecstatic, and, surprised, too! You find it unbelievable that such a thing could happen with you. And, it takes a lot of probing and analysing to finally accept that something this unimaginable could happen to you, too!

              The above emotions are  what I went through when I received a message from the Manager of Baggout that my blog had been selected as one of the 15 best love and relationships blogs in India. I must have read the message 5 times and still found it unbelievable. In fact, I thought someone was playing a prank. I made enquiries, tried finding out all about Baggout and went back to where I was - in a state of utter disbelief! Call it low self esteem if you wish, but I wondered how  anyone could find my one and a half year old blog worthy of any such mention.

        The feeling was  good, nay, great. But, unless I saw it all in black and w…

MOM - Film Review.

Starring: Sridevi, Akshaye Khanna, Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Director: Ravi Udyawar

Music: A.R. Rahman.

Rating: 4/5

Because God couldn't be everywhere, He created Mother. A line from the movie, it could very well sum up the movie for you. Sridevi couldn't have chosen a better subject for her 300th film. I haven't been a diehard Sridevi fan, but her last film, English Vinglish, changed my opinion of her and that's the reason I simply wanted to see MOM, right on the day it released.

MOM is emotional; MOM is electrifying; MOM is hard-hitting; MOM is riveting, right till the end.  In short, MOM is Sridevi. This could very well be the review in a nutshell, but there's more I would love to talk about.

Devki Sabarwal (Sridevi) is a school teacher, the kind one can never mess with, whoever you may be. However, at home, she struggles to bond with her 18 year old step-daughter, Arya (Sajal Ali). The quiet acceptance and the sensitivity with which she accepts the cold vibes she r…
