And nobody was named Fred....

There was a Hugo and a Rosie... but no Fred. Oh well, it's over... that is more than enough.

So finally the Harry Potter series has come to an end. And I did read all the books... but somehwere between the third and the fourth book, all the success went to her (Rowling's) head and she started churning out lousy sequels. I mean the first book was really nice, stuck to important stuff... and did not ramble on unnecessarily. I liked the third book the best, cause of Sirius... I thought he was the most amazing character, he was portrayed as this handsome reckless and brave guy, rugged looking but great looking, kinda like Aragon in the movie, "Lord of the rings" or Oded Fehr in "The Mummy Series". So it was only natural that I stopped watching the Harry potter movies, after I saw who they had cast to play the role of Sirius Black, some demented looking guy. Just look at the pictures!!!

Anyway, this last book was just too much... there was too much of everythin. It was kinda like the movies Sivaji and Spiderman 3, where everythin was blown out of proportion. The only thing I really found interesting in the book was the escape of the seven potter's... that was a brilliant idea.
So, ending in the words of my sister Nameeta....
"im going to write the countinuing series of harry potter... and in the first chapter of the first book harry potter will die.. his own children will kill him for having such a pathetic life!! "

Kids, food and books....

Well, finally done with the exams... its been a few fun weeks with Jacques Derrida, Edmund Husserl, Wordsworth, Mathew Arnold, and the rest of the guys.  Came to know about  phonemes, allophones, consonant clusters and what not.
Anyway, went to school the past fewdays to hangout with the kids... and when I am there, there's no where else I'd rather be.
                  

                                                    
Other than spending time in school, been spending some time in the kitchen too, tryin out a few dishes. Made Stuffed Roast Chicken and it came out really well...

                                                            

Grandma wanted to make some sweet appam, so helped her with that too.

                                                         

Received the new Potter book today and Harry Potter looks so much better as a fictional character than he does in the real life version. She (Rowling) does weave a good story.... though, it's a drag at some places.

I will not forget you...I have carved you on the palm of My hand. (Isaiah 49:15-16)

Here are a few pictures taken in school, when the guys and me dropped by one fine beautiful monday.


 



I showed them the school chapel, and this is what they did there...


At a roadside 'cafe', where we stopped on the way back to drink sarbath.

Exam Ridden

Too busy with exams to contemplate anythin else....
Just enjoy the few videos below....

Manoj was playing this song, and I was wondering who had this kind of deep, amazing voice...


Saw this video on Nameeta's orkut page... she's good, Danielle I mean and not nam.


Nice chorus:
'Cause when push comes to shove
You taste what you are made of
You might bend 'til you break
'Cause it's all you can take
On your knees you look up
Decide you've had enough
You get mad, you get strong
Wipe you hands, shake it off
Then you stand, then you stand



Especially like Taylor's hair in the video... and her long flowing dress too...
