There are thousands of posts on MOMA(Museum Of Modern Arts) and their website is very interactive, so if you are reading this post expecting something informative then please don’t. Also I am not writing to trash anyone’s work or ideas .Writing my mind out about my experience in MOMA.
Modern art is really hard to understand. At least for me. And trust me artist don’t make it any easier. But it was really astonishing to see so many thoughts and ideas a human mind can have. At first I thought it will be more of canvas with weird kind of paintings depicting artists’ point of view of life or something, but it was much more.
Don’t know if anyone else noticed but the whole building was a piece of art. The architecture was so well done. 6 floors , with a theme of work in each floor. My personal favourite was 5th floor where they have showcased the famous work of Picasso .Those paintings were amazing. And the best part was each art had a description next to it .Made it easier for armatures like me to understand.
Though I didn’t understand the art but the combination of colors was so alive and masterly done , it was just mesmerizing. Was able to get the pics of few but trust me even photos cant capture that colors , or maybe I have a sucky camera. But anyways I took few snaps to share with my friends.
This particular piece was really interesting. The long I stood there and starred at it, the more I was able to see myself. Not sure if it was the face or the feeling /expression that matched perfectly.But anyways, I liked it so took a snap.Couple of other pieces taht raised my curiosity were the belows.
If only I could draw something as good as theses are.If that sounds odd then let me clarify that i ,myself is an artist too.Though not so famous or talented,but a budding artist. Anyways,the evening was really amazing.Its nice to see something beautiful and so pure once in a while.
WOW.Those were my first words that came out of my mouth when i saw the most amazing form of crystal in its micro view.I couldn't have asked for anything more.My trip to London is finally successful.Sounds little too much right? but look it from my eyes, its the first snow of my whole life. God knows when I will be able to see it again? So I endure the sweet pleasure completely.
Thanks to my housemates and my friend the experience was even more enjoyable.We built a snowman.And posed for picture for lots of other snowman. Ours was not so good,well you cant expect a good one from a first timer. But we still did a pretty descent job.Backyard junks and old cloths of unknown people made it even more fancy snowman.It looks like a Chinese snowman .
Ohhh I almost forgot the snowball fight, and the angle on the snow. Was an amazing experience.Though my bones were paining due to the frost but still it was worth. I saw smile on peoples faces for the first time.Well for Indians (specially like me who have never seen snow ) is obvious to enjoy the snow but its really nice to see for the regulars to enjoy it too.
Wish my family could have been here.Then it would have been even more amazing.Though they were digitally present.Yeah, I actually made a skype call and shared the experience with them.
+1 for London for the lovely and chilling snowfall.Will always cherish this memory.
Discovering something new is always fun and memorable. Doesn't matter if its already discovered by some one else before. Mr. Armstrong might have felt lucky enough to discover the enchanted moon but who knows how many time super man has partied on that white land. The point is the joy of coming to a new place and finding something new on your own is amazing.
What's the hoopla is all about? Well I discovered the land of old and rusty pages with the hint of new glossy magazines. That's correct i went to New-Ham Library today.thanks to Barbara (my house mate). Though I am here from past 4 months still I didn't know that we have a free library next door.
Its actually build in inside a old structural which gives the best touch of old British Library. But its all modern inside. It took only 3 mins to become a member.After Singapore bank this was the the second fast processing i ever experienced.
that being said I am now browsing all the books that i can take home.And as always my favorite corner is Fiction and horror.
How much worse it can go. Waiting for my heart to stop. The pain is slow and keeps eating from inside. And with watery eyes and heavy breathe I stare in the dark and think how to end this. Can’t take it anymore. What makes it worse, the bland eyes that stare at me looking so indifferently every day with a hope I look at those eyes and wish them to differ.
I know writing this will not help me but it helps in minimizing the pain. Sharing is the best way to distribute the pain. And when your own don’t understand, you need the cover of words to hide your feelings or best to say, bury them. Coz no matter how hard you try, no one will listen and understand.And even if someone listens they will come up with some absurd conclusion.So its best this way.
I have been meaning to do this from a long time. Every depressing moment made it easy to think and pen down it.And with every letter and word it eases the pain .. for a while. Why is it so hard to accept the fact?I see it,hear it and even feel it, yet try to avoid it.Why? Coz theres no 'I' attached to 'it'.Its more than one persons faith,love and hopes that makes me think and forces to ignore it.But for how long??Every moment it pricks into my heart and makes it worse.Why I have to care for every one ,why cant I live my life my own?Why cant it just end?
And I always thought Hindi drama can make me cry. But now I am suffering from the Korean drama fever. I must say it’s the must watch. I never knew that it can be so addictive that I ended up watching the whole series of 29hrs in row for 2 days.
My favourite remains The Mischievous Kiss (or the playful kiss, whatever may be the English name), followed by Boys over Flowers, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, Brilliant Legacy and Protect The Boss.
Among the all I like Kim Hyun Joong the most. Haven't heard much of his songs but yeah have seen almost all his drama series and he is amazing. Following to my personal favourite is Lee Seung Gi. Currently I am watching another of his series named King2 Hearts. So far so good. But won't repeat the mistake of watching it in one go. Will enjoy it an episode a day.
Oops I missed one more of my favourite “Coffee Prince”. How can I forget it. But then I have been watching so many that it’s hard to keep track of the best ones coz all of them are so good. Coffee Prince was little different from the other stories. But kept me entertained through out.
Love to watch more and more of these. Please let me know if I have missed something which I shouldn’t have.
Dedicated to my sister in law.
My sister in law once told me "learn how to say NO".Turns out she is right.There comes a time in everyone's life when they have to say NO.
Being a social animal comes a lot of responsibility and obligation that one has to carry on to fit in.Your personal space compromises with lot of factors and your will,well,its not your will anymore.turns out you have to run on others will.You wont be wrong if you say that no one can invade my personal space but that's the hard part when your best friend calls you in the middle of your sleep and asks you,'Hey can we hang out'?And you are like 'yeah why not'.
Sounds familiar isn't it.Well before going further let me make it clear to you.If you are reading this hoping a way to learn it,please stop reading,because the fact is,that I am still struggling to learn it myself.Its just my personal feeling which keeps on bothering me.May be writing it down will help me to understand its value.Because every time i say NO i have this guilt feeling that rips the heart out of me.Why do I have to say no?Its not that hard to do things that pleases others.If I can bring smile to face why should it be so hard.As a matter of fact I did lived on this principle for years. And the result too was good. I had a huge friend circle ,was the favorite of everyone and my scrapbook was full of words like helpful,care taking and reliable.
But it took me time to understand that not everyone was honest about these words. And few them were just bed bugs, living on you by sucking your happiness. They used me nicely and didn't even bothered to say thanks. Harsh isn't it. But that's life and those are few people or better to say few samples from devils catalogue.
Anyways coming back to the topic, though I felt happy for all the praise and nice words, well who wont feel better for the praise ,after all its human nature,but some where and somehow I was not comfortable with it. And it was so prominent that one fine day my sister-in-law told me " learn to say no".
Watched the movie this weekend. Made me cry again. Simple story of a dog, his love and faithfulness.
Richard Gere founds a dog, keeps him. He loves him and nourishes him. Whenever he goes for work dog will come with him till a station to escort him then goes back and comes again to station in evening to receive him. Second half Richard dies. But the dog still kept on doing his daily routine for more than 9 years till the day he died. When he dies that day too he was waiting for his master to come.
Ohh god it was so touching. I am speechless.Cant write the emotions or feeling I felt after watching it.
For me it’s a must watch movie.
Strange but true. An author can really change your life with words. I am not a book worm kind of guy, but I do like to read something or the other. But not for a long time. Reading a newspaper article too was restricted to bollywood gossips or some happening incidents. Politics, current affairs are really a bore for me. Till now.
But somehow I had that habit of reading books, novels, short stories, may be because of my mother she use to read a lot. Even after marriage, she somehow uses to manage time to read. But for me reading a whole novel is very tiresome . But that’s not what I want to say here.
A very good friend of mine once suggested me a book.4:50 from Paddington by Agatha Christie. The most thrilling and killing book I have ever read. The suspense is really killing. You just can’t leave the book. The intensity of suspense deepens more with every turn of the page. A must read book. This was the first suspense thriller I read after Brem Stoker’s Dracula. But honestly none of the books have impressed me as much as Agatha Christie’s.
Unbelievably nice movie. Short dialogs, limited characters and an amazing emotional and heart ripping story.
Its 10/10 for me. Those who really like occasional emotion waves should try it. I am not going to narrate the whole story. But you can extract alot from it. Parenting,love,betrayal,guilt and lots and lots of emotion.
Its a fully packed movie.
Word of caution: Watch it with a tissue paper in hands. Cause you cannot stop yourself from crying.
An artist doesnt require colour or a canvas to create a piece, its his mind and imagination which results in a master piece.
Thinking keeps one brain active.Rather its a best practise.Some may say day dreaming will never take a form,but who cares if it gives a meaning and focus to your life.And when you have the right thinking, you are on the way to discover your own realm .A reflection of your own but in a materialist form.So never restrict your imagination,coz you never know when it can result into a master piece.
A teenage thinks to be rockstar,youth loves to experiment,a man wants the power and a lady searches for true love.you might say its different but they are thinking.Thinking to get what they want ,what they desire.It leads to a action where they try to implement their thinking in positive or negative way.But the same action keeps the life flowing.From one point to another.From one origin to another destination and from one thinking to another.
