A Movie with a logic

              Recently I saw this movie, which is a 1997 release, directed by Kevin Smith. It won two awards also. It tells the relationship between three - two friends and a lesbian girl. For the story line, read this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chasing_Amy
              Film moves very smoothly. How Ben Affleck falls in love with the lesbian girl, Joey Lauren Adams and accepting her and jealousy part of his friend, Jason Lee are dealt well.  When he came to know about her past with many men, his turmoil and the love he has is shown beautifully thru' his eyes.


Holden & Banky   Ben Affleck stars as Holden McNeil

              So what about the worst part of the movie?  The dialect, more of sociolect, belongs to low social class I think. So many hit words...subtitles run with many more asterisks. Its a turn down point of the movie, makes it a C grade one. Coming to the part of stars, Ben Affleck nice and so striking to watch acts out the role well, but  Adams giggles too girlishly in the first(lesbian) part of the movie and then suddenly becomes serious, when he suspects her heterosexuality. But she delivers her best in the last few scenes when he asks her to be with he and his friend. The last lines "some guy I knew in the past" lingers in our minds. Nice movie to watch.

      Love hurts.. but evoking the past hurts more.
  The logic "Past is always the Past" reaches us.

And Our Indian Women


Word of Thanks I am so thankful for my agonized women friends who asked and helped me in writing this article. I believe this would certainly helps our women to balance in the social network to some extent.



Indian Women
Indian women, had a definite pattern of living and a very stringent culture of not being out with other men after they got married, whether they are educated or an earning member. For the past one decade, we had seen change in behavioral pattern of our college girls, influenced by the western culture. They love, like or lie down and go well with any other person on earth. The social sites trap these girls into this current, that they are not able to adjust with their partners after the nuptial knot. They compare their men with the other male friends in their network. Many marriages end well in the court. 

If these are all known facts, what is the necessity for writing this article?....Leaving young girls, we beckon the women in their 40s and 50s to defi…

Moms never quit..

Long Skirts



Little things do magic Lilies and chrysanthemums Fold mountains and Hay meadow Shearing wind whistles around lonely boat Dashing clean water murmurs along the shore But the old woman in her hood Is yet to sing the tranquilizing dream  That bloom with love and life
Whatever happens,  Moms never quit to say  Girls should wear long skirts   Then the children  Never fail to follow the Pied Piper
