Spanish classes are fun

As regular readers would know yours truly is making a valiant effort to learn a new language. The language being Spanish doesn’t make things easy either. But in the Spanish classes I understood one thing. Even difficult things can be a lot of fun. for example in our Spanish class since all of us are novice learners and not even equipped with beginner level grammar some of us make very funny sentences. Our instructor is brilliantly gifted to make the class dynamic and light so I think it is my responsibility to share some truly light moment’s with all of you. here are some of our constructions:

My top 5 Actresses

A couple of days ago was International Women’s Day, celebrated with much fanfare. Don’t ask me what I feel about this day, this blog entry is not about my feelings on Women’s Day. Celebrating this day was Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s wife on prime time TV describing the top 5 Bollywood actresses she thought demonstrated amazing girl power. On seeing that i just had a passing thought: who are the top 5 actresses I admire in Bollywood. I didn’t have to think much and here is my list of women with raw acting prowess from number 1 to number 5.

1. Smita Patil (Mirch Masala)
2. Nargis Dutt (Mother India)
3. Madhuri Dixit (Hum Aapke Hain Kaun)
4. Rani Mukherjee (Black)
5. Vidya Balan (Parineeta)

Note: While the others in the list above have already proven themselves time and again, Vidya Balan finds place in my list because of my strong belief that she will make a solid mark in Bollywood in the days to come.

The Dramatic Life

Alfred Hitchcock was reflecting the mood of his times when he said, ” Drama is life with the dull bits cut out”. The times that we live in are such that one is forced to say,” life is drama with the dull bits all cut out”.Indeed life is more interesting than planned and directed drama. All the world’s a stage for the drama of life:

a. Drama in America over who is the father of Anna Nicole’s baby.

b. Drama in Dallal Street over a non-event as the Union budget for FY 2007-2008.

c. Drama in Japan over whale-hunts

d. Drama in Jerusalem over the supposed discovery of Christ’s remains(also dramatic is the supposed discovery of Mary Magdalene’s coffin)

e. Drama in the streets of Karnataka over who will take how much of Cauvery

f. Drama in parliament over the delay in Quattrocchi’s arrest not being flashed as breaking news.

Having said that I think its never good to give up hope – “ Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow them. ” – Louisa May Alcott
