Tubelight

Love for movies has been life time for me.On Friday (6-24-2017) I saw Salman Khan’s new movie Tube light.For some unexplained reason, our bathroom lights were flickering right after I watched the movie.This movie just like any other movie, is just fine with me.It has a bit more melodrama (taking you back to a couple of generations of emotions) and has a big cast including Om Puri, Salman Khan and his brother along with a good support cast and thrown in for good measure of Indo-Chinese conflict and melodrama with a couple of Chinese actors.The movie itself is simple is limited to a small village on the foothills of the Himalayas.The backdrop is wonderful and picturesque.

The movie critics have panned the movie.The box office has not been as magical as Salman Khan’s last few movies.This should not come as a surprise to anyone as the movie itself is not a regular masala movie but focuses on a boy/man who is developmentally challenged and his convict…

Newton’s Third Law

Trump always said if some hits you hit them back harder.Although I start writing about Newton’s Third Law (for every action there is equal and opposite reaction), Trump has 70 years of life’s experience in hitting back at anyone who questions or differs with him.He is from New York and a real estate developer, and is an old man with life’s experience of hard knocks and hitting back, and more so rebuilding (building and rebuilding) again and again.No one must like him or dislike him for who he is, as he is the president of the United Sates, and people put him there.To complain, to keep trying to make him something he is not or doesn’t want to do, is impractical, especially given that he is the most powerful man on earth, leading the USA.

Only referring to previous presidential behavior as presidential is history, and much has changed with each presidency and its time and place.From Washington to Obama, times are very different in between each pres…

Only One Place Called Home

In you have lived in the Chicago area for about 20 years, you notice the changes to the weather.Winter is no longer 4 to 5 months long with snow, clod and blowing wind, where you must bundle up before venturing out.There were Aprils where snow was still around.

It has become a standard phrase for long-time residents in the area to say, “I don’t miss the snow and wintry weather”.The mid-west might have missed the year (several years) in having snow cover for four or five months, but it does impact the rest of the seasons.Hot weather in May and not a white Christmas or New Year.It is strange.

Our four seasons have their own charm, seasonality and importance.One season leads to the other, people, farming, life-style, everything moderate each-other and life is in full cycle, all four seasons.Each season with its own charm and importance and reason, keeping with the cycle of life.Weather was predictable and life revolved around the seasons.
