How long and hard can u think ?

Ah don’t read much in to it … i write to myself much as to express to others , i always think everyone will have their own version or understanding of things – written or seen and that depends as much on the author as on the reader .

 

I have been reading Rabindranath Tagore’s short stories and essays since a month , just came across this passage – i can’t get it out of my mind , neither can i understand it fully ….

 

“Whatever confines our urges inside us , and checks their free access to the outside, poisons our life .Selfishness for instance , refuses to give free play to our desires and so prevents them from working themselves through; that is why its close associate is always festering untruth. When our desires have a chance to be released in the form of worthwhile work the aberration  is dispelled and a more natural condition asserts itself . that is the true state of human nature and the joy of being human .” – this passage is from “the broken heart ” – ‘My reminiscences’ by Tagore .

Henry David Thoreau

It’s often amusing reading  the number of adjectives  that are used to  describe the famous people.For all the simplicity Henry David Thoreau stood for – he is described as everything starting from historian , tax resister  to Transcendentalist .

so I won’t use more of those fancy titles . I want to share some of  his quotes that I like – most of them taken from his work -” Walden“.

–       A broad margin of leisure is as beautiful in a man’s life as in a book. Haste makes waste, no less in life than in housekeeping. Keep the time, observe the hours of the universe, not of the cars.

–      A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.

–    Books can only reveal us to ourselves, and as often as they do us this service we lay them aside.

–     Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for love of it.

–    Do not worry if you have built your castles in the air. They are where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

An efficient and valuable man does what he can,
whether the community pay him for it or not.
The inefficient offer their inefficiency to the highest bidder,
and are forever expecting to be put in office.

Say what you have to say, not what you ought.
Any truth is better than make-believe.

The Oscars

I ‘am feeling quite an itch to comment upon this year’s  Oscars b’cos of lots of noise being made by the Indian presence and by “Slumdog Millionaire” .

I confess i don’t find Slumdog appealing ,i think it got 3-4 too many oscars , ‘cos there r much better movies made in India by Indians on this subject of poverty and success . What i don’t understand is why  this is film such a big hit , is it the circumstances (the success story viewed in the backdrop of current recession ) or sth else .Regarding the best picture and best director I think the other movies “Milk”  , “The curious case of Benjamin Button” deserved better .

Coming to the music ,  i love WALL-E , but keeping it aside , as someone who has listened to Rehman all these years , i know he made much better soul stirring music than this , ok agreed its in regional languages , but still the hype being made up is just too much .

and finally congratulations to my fav actor Late Heath Ledger winning an Oscar , and to the short film documentary  “smile Pinki” , a real good one .

INTO THE WILD

Into the wild , movie released in 2007 , just watched it , i feel the film is growing on me . there are some amazing dialogues in the movie , but here r the few songs that i like .. The music is by Eddie Vedder

SOCIETY

hmmm ooh hooo hooo

It’s a mystery to me
we have a greed
with which we have agreed

You think you have to want
more than you need
until you have it all you won’t be free

society, you’re a crazy breed
I hope you’re not lonely without me

When you want more than you have
you think you need
and when you think more than you want
your thoughts begin to bleed

I think I need to find a bigger place
‘cos when you have more than you think
you need more space

society, you’re a crazy breed
I hope you’re not lonely without me
society, crazy and deep
I hope you’re not lonely without me

there’s those thinking more or less less is more
but if less is more how you’re keeping score?
Means for every point you make
your level drops
kinda like its starting from the top
you can’t do that…

society, you’re a crazy breed
I hope you’re not lonely without me
society, crazy and deep
I hope you’re not lonely without me

society, have mercy on me
I hope you’re not angry if I disagree
society, crazy and deep
I hope you’re not lonely without me

RISE

Such is the way of the world
You can never know
Just where to put all your faith
And how will it grow

Gonna rise up
Burning black holes in dark memories
Gonna rise up
Turning mistakes into gold

Such is the passage of time
Too fast to fold
Suddenly swallowed by signs
Low and behold

Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up
Throw down my ace in the hole
