60th Rupublic Day, Slumdog Millionaire and The White Tiger

The 60th Republic day is coming to a close. The day passed by without any major terrorist activities as anticipated.Kudos to the security personnel! But this is not the topic I want to write today - rather I will tell you how I spend the last 'once-in-5-weeks' free weekend after the mid-term exam. Err...don't worry, I am not going to bore you with minute details-rather I will discuss a little bit of the movie Slumdog Millionaire, which I watched last Friday and the 2008 Booker winning book The White Tiger by Arvind Adiga, which I read during the long weekend.

Barddhaman Utsav 2009


See the picture. Does it seem a statue to you? No. It's a living person, entertaining the curious crowd all through the evening at the Utsav. Any comment? Though the person was portrayed as a embodiment of concentration, I felt sorry for the him. He was probably doing it to earn a living. What do you say?

Happy New Year 2009

The new year has just arrived. People are partying in the Old Hostel Squad. Intermittent sound bytes of *JBS BaroC's performance are reaching my room. The city at the distance is celebrating the commencement (of the year) by bursting crackers. I generally do not like big parties. Rather I like to celebrate with a small gatherings of my close friends. Without the one at present, I preferred to write this blog to take a look back and ponder over some of the issues crossing my mind.
