I Really Do Not Write A Movie Review (Fiction)

I really do not write a movie review but then it is about aliens. Aliens, I looked for them around and they were not hard to find. There was once a narrow road between govt. apartments and an old age home where the passers by were usually office goers, seldom women and young. Yet since it leads to a temple, I was bound to it and passing by but an old woman inmate avoids my glances.

Years later, I understood about the nature of the building and its services. I went on to ask permission to create a Facebook group and a charity portal from Social Welfare society under whose aegis the building and its inmates were.

They showed the monthly activities arranged for them, their monthly expenses such as issue of library books, medical checkups, etc. They told me that they are properly looked after but if I still feel the need, I can go ahead with my plan.

I was fussed over a bad delivery from a well-known online supermart. I went to consumer redressal forum to become a member to undergo a cou…

The Role of Religion

My Definition:

The religion is both a concept and a manifestation that affirms the presence or authority of Supreme being. Every religion does it in its own way. Thus, a person following Hinduism can relate to a person following another. The manifestation is the level of understanding of a person and also in correlation to his/her surroundings. If a person explains or deals his/her surroundings using it as a concept, it is a concept. If a person is consistent that religious body is a tangible experience in real world (relevance of idols and rituals) then the religion comes in this form.

For me, the religion is a tangible experience considering that the ultimate entities have laid a path for us but overall, they are still diversified somewhere (across universes) as hierarchical supernatural powers. It cannot be surprising.

I believe that every religion has a specific purpose but they can be incomplete and thus, dependable on each other for common good. Here, it is controversial when we…

First Group Exhibition at BAMA Academy of Fine Arts, Panchkula

"A Little Girl” a photo haiga created by me is on display in group photography exhibition at BAMA Academy of Fine Arts, Panchkula.

The work is my first experimental artwork using haibun rather than haiku in haiga.

The photo is from Nek Chand Rock Garden from Chandigarh. This place has been an integral part of my life. Independent of my personal experiences, I find the place has a great allure and leads to numerous expressions and/or thoughts. It is a great source of inspiration, motivation, happiness, joy, creativity and other sources of values to its visitors every day.

The BAMA Academy of Fine Arts exhibition was inaugurated by Mr. N. K. Sharma, Chief Parliamentary Secretary, Industries & Commerce, Punjab on 25th December, 2014. The photographs by various upcoming and established tri-city photographers are on display from 26th to 28th of December, 2014.

The Address:
The Exhibition Hall of BAMA Academy,

PK - Why Be Banned

Question is the best that is asked. One which is dangling in the universe is surely a hoax. Should the literate world leave the hoax, treat it as confusion or a paradox?

We call it creative experiments with use of techniques such as shadow dance, rebuilding a city after devastation or use of alien concept. When I described my reaction over PK movie at Facebook, even I was not perfect.

My reaction was based on higher concepts whereas the movie started with two questions, one from an alien about the concept of God and another of human love. I bent towards answering the relevance of religion (that too of all). The movie however, specifically targeted Hinduism too much. But take it as compliment.

It left us no scope to clarify other than the flaw in the movie itself. "What is God if" questions are laughing stock of type. The condition of plot is like the one who might be disturbed with taking care of a crying child and would at momentary anger curse the God for bringing this up…

A Foggy Noon

Second day of the fog just as expected however, the sky is filled with a flight of pigeons as if they have gathered for a season. Be it summer, autumn or winter, the silent noon is often spent by oneself by the housewives. I can guess there would be almost no rush on the main road because in less horn noise, the vehicles must have turned on their bright indicator lights to announce the proximity.

Following Up

Waking up this morning to cloudy day (winter's first), by evening these mild showers came up with a little thunder. The many birds of this society chirped joyously and I saved some food for them. One by one they perched on a rod by the feeder and took away the bit to their near and far places.

no shape of
the clouds today,
I start to ponder
