Now, this will not go to the Trash can!

After having shared with you my familiarity with books-that-you-start-to-hate-once-you-read experiences, I must talk about this. Something that has come to my relief after a long wait. This book is called ‘The Hindi Bindi Club’.Caught a glimpse of it on The synopsis was catchy and that lured me to read it. Well, I never had to regret, really. All about the relation between mothers and daughters, migrated to the US from India who are confused, torn apart between cultures yet prudent about themselves. A cache of some very warm conversations, thoughts and yes some scrumptious Indian recipes. Now, I am not gonna deny completely on the point that it is a girly book. It is in its own way. It however stands out in the way the strength of characters are projected. A good Tea Time read !

Up, Up and Away

The best fact about mere existence is that Life is full of surprises all the time and I wouldn’t be surprised if this truth is declared the soul spirit that keeps me going.
Anyways, it wasn’t a smooth ride all the way, for the whole of fortnight and to cream it up, fever from the deep down jungle has kissed me down. Sometimes it makes you feel nice to cruise through the tough times, loving the resilience that life has bestowed you with, isn’t it? Quite a handful of advice, suggestions, some serious instructions and some scorn, but there is a kick out of moving on , racing along with a smile on your lips and faith in yourself .
Life will get back to normal, that’s assured. But you would have a greater sense of strength.

All said, my life for sure has slowly turned to normal and above all, I am back to blogging !!!

My friend requires a laptop of about 40GB hard drive, 3.5", 1.44MB Floppy Drive (Modular) and the likes with atleast a period of 3 years warranty. Would Compaq presario be a good choice ? I personally would suggest Sony VAIO. I donno to choose between the two.

That’s what we christened our Team with for the week long events/competitions scheduled between 4 different teams at my work place. They made me do a write up on why ‘Giovane’ as a Team name, which is to be presented over the first event, ‘Team Branding’.
And this is what I did about it. By the ways, Giovane is an Italian word, meaning YOUNG. The phrase within quotes is a flick from ‘quotable quotes’ .

It takes faith in the young heart in you to determinedly stay young even when Life moves on to bring in a higher count to your age. "There is an innocence within me that already knows how to trust my Higher Power, to cherish life while holding it lightly, to live fully and simply in the present moment. I will allow that part of myself to come forward and nourish me as I continue on this journey”, That was an extract from the book ‘Courage to Change’. And if I were to redefine it, I would look within to derive the sense of light, radiant and bright.

Life can’t stay young forever. But the mind within can even outlast life. I can trust the power within myself. I must be a big boy. But I own a flair for my innocence. I must be still young. I can look ahead at the future with courage, thanks to the experience Life has given me. But I will forget tomorrow while I play this moment to the fullest, thanks to the young heart in me. I am so focused on the target, the victory that I want to make. I can feel the maturity in me. But I love to see the spirit in my opponent and enjoy playing with him. I can feel the kid in me. Life will grow old , but I never shall , I only want to grow UP. I am eternally young. I am GioVane.

Oh, a Welcome Change !

I saw Chak De India and it’s absolutely brilliant. I mean to have come up with an attempt to make a bollywood flick with king Khan (me not particularly a Shah Rukh fan but I think he’s really talented), 16 average looking new girls and a story that whirls around the national yet one of the least popular sports of the country , I think, is so brave and positive. I loved the movie and the Indian sprit drawn about it, especially during the 60th Independence celebration season.

So all those movie makers and money lenders who firmly believe to go by the conventions of film making, think about it, the latest sensation is of stories on sports. Chennai 600028 is another fresh change I recently enjoyed. There is fresh air around. Isn’t it? To me , as a fair appreciator of good cinema, I am loving it.
