I really don get this. Person 1 who is Person 2's colleague, posts on Person 2's wall on FB asking how his day went. And Person 1 & 2 hold the highest position in the workplace. How dumb can they get???

Go watch 'Peepli Live' if you have nothing to do. Actually go, even if you have something to do. Its very good.

On Mightymagic's request:

I guess by now everybody must have heard how great the movie is. For me, the best thing about the movie was the costumes. It was so dam realistic. I mean I literally felt like I was in one of those interior parts of Bihar for a while. The actors of course could not have been better chosen. Raghuvir Yaadav lives the role literally. the casual manner in which he asks his brother to commit suicide was amazing. Though it was a sad moment in the movie, the atrocious manner in which he approaches the solution was hilarious. This guy is really under rated. And Omkar Das as Natha is brilliant too. there is something special about theater artists who perform on- screen. They somehow beat the other actors hands down, however small their role is.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui needs special mention. His sincerity was so endearing.I really wish they hadnt ended h…
P visited Thames without me. waaaaaaaaaaaaaah :-(
Loved this-

The past.....well, it's just like our Great-Aunt Laura, who cannot or will not perceive that though she is welcome, and though we adore her, yet now it is time to leave.

Jhilmil asked my sister if mothers carried the female baby and fathers carried the male baby in their womb. This got me thinking. Imagine a world where either the man or woman would carry the child depending on the sex of the baby. I could ask my colleague-'so who is carrying the child' and if she already has a son and the again father is carrying I could say- sheesh thats too bad'. Men would have morning sickness, bloat, go on paternity leave etc.. Men and women would start understanding each other better. There might not be any incidence of female infanticide. This is under the assumption that men would start understanding the pains and pleasure of bearing a child and would protest again killing of the female child.

Life could have been made lot more interesting this way. Maybe the maker does not have a good sense of humour.

It would be nice to know the possibilities arising out of this. Do reply with ur comments :-)
