A GOOD NIGHT

28 Nov
The night has come dark and slow

Time to catch up with your pillow
Keep good memories and forget the day
As the day has gone by now
And for sure there is a better tomorrow
It will bring more glow into your lives
So for now go have fun with blanket and mattress
They are true givers of love and happiness
A wonderful night of sweet dreams
Funny, dreams shall be and none with screams
Happy night my friend
I wish you as I go to sleep
But this is not the end
Life has so much still for us to seek

MY REMAINS

27 Nov
I drenched myself in monsoons of your passion
I quenched my thirst in the rains of our unison
Yet, parched and withered I remain
Because our warmth has left me in pain
I seek to walk away from you but just cannot
For, to leave you is going to make my life go vain
When I trudge towards you and I am rewarded by a slap
“The good times have gone by, now you shouldn’t expect a clap”
I hear this from your still and mellowed voice
Still, I do not crib or sob upon on my choice 
I live alone now, in those gone by monsoons unmoved and still
In patience, like a patent who took a time-stop pill
I wait for to come for one last time, just come and kill me
So that, when I die, I pass in peace as I see you in my last breath
I am not in your heart perhaps now any moment
Come take my life and make your eternal past 
I would then be happy living as your past, though dead in present

A SMILE

23 Nov
Smile for the morning and smile for the noon
Smile for the night too that comes so soon
Keep a smile for your kid and a smile for your mother
Smile back at those too who just make you bother
Life is fun till it is done away
To smile all through is the best way
A precious gift which is undervalued
So know its worth and make it valuable
Smile when down if you can
Coz if you smile then you are the man
Smile makes up all the worries
Smile surpasses all the glories
Nothing glorifies life than a beautiful smile

VICKY AND THE TREASURE OF THE GODS (2011) – GERMAN

20 Nov
A fun kids film thats enjoyable when you have kids around.
Before I review, few words please to let you know that I am just sharing this review to keep up with my discipline of writing and sharing reviews as and when I see a film in a theatre or on Big Screen. 
I caught up with this film yesterday night at the Children’s film festival at Lalitha Kala Thoranam with my nephew and my sister. It was fun in many ways to be seeing kids film with so many kids around. 
This is a German film and I am surprised how many kids gathered to see this and my nephew was interpreting most of the film perfectly fine, I was in awe with the knowledge and ideas todays kids have. 
The movie is a fable like story where a boy loses his father to an evil man and must get him back. It was a simple enough story that was made interesting by some wonderful shots. It is an adventure that shot akin Harry Potter. I believe so, many will mostly like this considering the simplicity it has. The film is done simply with noble intention of presenting a story with a moral. The boy rises above odds and uses his powers and gets back his father and wins over the evil. 
The production qualities were good and certain shots made in Computer Graphics were amazing. The art direction was great too. But I am not over impressed by the story as it is more a common place story than a different or a special one which you might expect at a film festival. Also, I loved a few dialogues which were humorous. The acting by most actors was very funny even silly and yet so apt. It’s good that most of the acting brought out laughs.
I am going with 3/5 with this film. Above all, I loved the atmosphere and watching kids laughing and screaming at movies. 

MY PASSION

19 Nov
A hope I had within got me thus far
The passion of self made me this now
But my own ego tainted many a scar
The lust for life made me stoop low

I wish not to have such valour
For that induced a taste so vigour
Can’t say if it was for worse or better
Can’t even say if anything does matter

Yet just cant give up my passion
That thought me a great lesson
That when cries don’t work then laugh
It’s better to laugh than being laughed at
