2017 – Hope & Optimism

2016 was an eventful year. I look forward to 2017 in a positive way

Globally 2016 was a year ravaged with many calamities. The chaos that seemed to spread so quickly across the world was too hard for anyone to miss. When I look back, however, 2016 was NOT a miserable year. In many ways it was a good year for me.

Zootropolis – A New Change

The world is filled with foxes and sheep. Foxes – sly, cunning and methodical. Sheep – mob followers, grazers and forever abused. That’s the version the world concurs with. Maybe up until Disney’s Zootropolis (Zootopia).

Disney has changed its usual way of making films. Stereotypes seen in characters has withered; there is more subtlety to the plot line. Even someone as ignorant as me, can now observe hint of grey shade to the black and white story line. Strangely the imprints left behind in the mind of the audience are so blissfully colorful!

Moana (2016)

My review of the Disney movie Moana (2016)

Just as I am writing this, BBC News confirms that some parts of Hawaii are under three feet of snow. A study by NASA just confirms that “it is no longer a question whether the West Antarctic Ice sheet will melt, it is a question of when”! In case you wonder what all this has to do with a Disney princess movie, read on…

The Perfect Vision

Dedicated to humanity

I stood in front of a little wooden box
Mellow at first touch,
And coarse by the next
Curious, I slid open its crest.

It had two pairs of glasses
One rimmed with a golden frame
The other all rotten and rust
I decided, that try them I must.

Eternal Spirit

The eternal soul is an unquenched thirst in our mind for perfection, a fire burning deep within each one of us, an unresolvable enigma whose purpose is beyond human understanding. Yet seek it is what we do, day in and day out.

You exist formless like the wind
You take no shape and yet
Complete the incomplete
Filling my void.

Breaking the Routine

2015 – An year of Breaking the Routine. Here is my usual lookback at the year that just seemed to have zipped past!

It was the beginning of an uncertain year. If there was any certainity in life, it was that our routine life was going to be shaken up. That we were to fly out of the nest of three years that we had gotten so very comfortable with.
