Top 25 Movies I like

I made a list of 25 movies I liked the most. The exercise was basically based on 3 principles in that order:
1] The number of times I can watch the movie to get similar excitement as the first time, the movie goes up the rank
2] If I cannot really remember a movie which I had liked, it probably shouldnt be in the list.
3] Any other factor that would make the movie special.

1. Pursuit of Hapiness
2. The Negotiator
3. Anand
4. Saving Private Ryan
5. Forest Gump
6. Sarfarosh
7. Enemy at the Gates
8. iRobot
9. The Insider
10. Lage raho munna bhai
11. Dil Chahta Hein
12. Tare Zameein Par
13. MIB
14. Troy
15. Guru
16. Shawshank redemption
17. Sarkar
18. Titanic
19. Bheja Fry
20. Bruce Al Mighty
21. Omkara
22. Carch me if you can
23. The Bourne Ultimatum
24. The Italian Job
25. Memento

......RUN FOREST RUN.....

So the day came again .. I had planned for it long .. and planned it hard .. After going to Cornell I was consistently motivated to do it .. because there were so many people all around the place who did it swiftly and continuously .. and I was astonished, surprised, shocked and challenged ; how can they do it when I give up so fast .. is it in their genes or have they trained themselves so hard ..

So there I was .. after coming to Toronto for work .. had a week off and nothing to do . So I took out all the cool gears I had gathered to mark the big event .. Nike Shoes .. Apple IPod and a cool short hair cut styled with hair gel .. I knew I was ready for it .. I might fail but I made sure that I would look good even while failing :)

I already had a long day .. applying for my SIN no and shopping at a mall with a friend .. I had stood helplessly while she tried 1000 sandals .. [ ah no .. this time it was not for hitting me ] I had drank coffee .. soda, had cookies and heavy lunch .. tried killing the time in vain [ offcourse there are other perks when you are shopping in a ladies section :)] .. ahem ahem .. so back to the topic .. This was the appropriate time to begin my journey .. I was destined to do it today ..

So against all oppositions I embarked on the journey .. The other day, I had seen a girl do the same on the opposite side of the road so I decided to take the same path .. I convinced myself that this is the path where all the regulars do it .. I started slowly first .. but the excitement was so high I could not control myself ... so I got carried along .. moving closer and closer ..not realizing what I am doing.. getting lost in the songs .. as if I was drunk .. I never realized how close I had moved .. finally the moment of realization came .. I guess I had done it ... I had planned about it a lot since 2 years when I had failed to do it and was hurt .. but now I was victorious .. I had ran more than 2 kms at a stretch!! .. I can actually call that as running .. but I was dead at the end of the road .. i should have taken it easy there was no reason to hurry along .. I felt that 2 big 5 kg blocks were tied to my legs , they were frozen the moment I stopped running .. nevertheless I was victorious..

I always thought its more exciting to do bigger things in life but time and again I get surprised that you derive more happiness by doing things which you thought you wont be able to do ... This feeling of joy today was more than the feeling I had few days back when I graduated !! .. I always knew I would graduate .. everybody graduates in US :) .. but now I can run !!

....... SINHAGAD ........

Its been long since I updated this blog .. fearing that google ll take away this free space from me .. I have decided to write something :)

Its about a trek to sinhagad [ I just call it a trek so that I feel like some achievement :)] . I have a friend who works at Bangalore . Whenever he comes down to pune , we visit sinhagad [for the reason that most of us are not motivated for more trouble and I don feel like a holiday if I just go out and eat at places!] ..
For a change this time we had started at 4.30 in the morning . It wasnt easy either for me or others to do that .. but that was our only claim to fame !! . Shockingly we found around 100 people there early morning !! so much for -peace or adventure .. the prev night was a full moon .. so many ppl had gone in the night itself ! which killed the remaining sense of adventure .
When we started at the bottom there were 2 girls ahead us .. and then there came a strange creature running down . It was running fast and had 2 light on his forhead .. that made it look even furocious . Just before the creature was supposed to crash on the girls [they were half dead from the shock of it anyway] we realized ,an enthusiastic trekker was running down and he had those flashlights tied to his forehead !! we busted out laughing loud. People do come with lots of preparation to trek sinhagad!!
As we were climbing up.. already dead with the hardship .. there came an old man walking from behind . he was climbing up so casually as if he is walking in a graden , easily overtook us and kept on going further ..his face was totally wrinkled .. I was afraid he ll fall in between and we would have to catch him ..not that we were confident that this would not happen with us ! . Finally after reaching the top we spoke to him . To my amazement he was 74 years old and was climbing it every sunday !!! that killed all the remaining achievement that i felt after reaching the top. !!
Anyways we celebrated our achievement by glutting lots of buttermilk , curd and lemon juice that we get there . All in all it was time well spent

U Played 8 hours 2 die like this!!!

Guess how it feels when u break a world record and somebody cracks ur record b4 it is registered....
Australia tasted it when SA just snatched out the victory 4m them when they scored the highest ever total of 434 simply to loose.....
what a fine day of cricket it ad been when the so called celebrated world champions were not able 2 defend a score of 434!!....wid baller like Lee balling only 8 overs and to my surprise he balled a half pitch ball 2 a 11th batsmen whom he could have knocked out wid an yorker aimed at the block hole!!!
Well hats off 2 SA they have proved that even impossible says 'IMpossible' and 4 australia lets say that 'TO ERR IS HUMAN!!!'.
Thats the word around now a dayz.....its in the air...ORKUT fever creates greater panic than bird flew!!!..
Well first upon i ll take this oportunity 2 congratulate google 4 comin up with such a gud concept 2 socialize...
Net at my place means long nights....and with orkut around the official bed time is 3.30pm...not 2 mention the rising time of 10.30 am and bunking the college.Sucess of Orkut is evident from the fact that its banned in our college which has the reputation of banning any new technology that's boomimg be it mobile phones....or wi-fi or even high speed net.Probably the most clebrating factor about orkut is that u get 2 meet all the long lost frinds out there whom you thought you ll bever see them in your lifetime again..wid loads of communities where u meet ppl wid similar thinking and share experiences.
It has definately made the world a smaller place....Once again hats off to Google !!!
