Wednesdays like thisWake up in the morning to hear that The Joker is dead. I don't like to hear about people my age dying, like this or any other way.
Having finally located a CD of Jodhaa-Akbar yesterday late evening, have been soaking in the songs. Have found it immensely enjoyable. "jashn-e-baahaaraa.n" is mellifluous, "aziim-o-shaan" is majestic, especially with the percussion, Khwaajaa Mere Khwaajaa again shows there is hardly a more sincere singer than A.R.Rahman, "mana mohanaa" reminds me a lot of "Enge Enathu..." from "Kandukondain...", loved hearing the oboe, Naveen sparkles as usual with his flute, was most intrigued by "in lamho.n ke daaman". Sounds even better inside the headphones.
Am constantly surprised by how little many people seem to care about anything that they do - there is hardly any attempt at self-quality-control. Weird.
Due to power trips (the electrical ones), ended up acting out "Ittefaaq" for an impromptu (as most are) Dumb Charades break: "ithe" (maraathii for "here") and "an English swear-word". I thought it should have got a more fitting reception on being solved than it did. Me ego-stick.
