Is it really a…. Coincidence?

Something's been happening last few weeks and I actually started thinking about this great entity called Life. Which has been discussed many tyms with hypothetical questions and people have written a million novels on it, beautiful poems to read, and songs to sing, and even countless blogs on this very embracing subject. Of course, I am not going to ask the regular question ‘oh.. why is life so unfair?’ but I started thinking about those little things called coincidences or some people call it accidents and how these things define life.

Lately I encountered some coincidences to remember, happy and otherwise, which made me go ‘okay lemme write this down somewhere cos I want to remember it ten years later’. These incidents are nothing big but something makes them memorable. After all, now I started seeing that life is full of coincidences.

So....Coincidence! Yeah. Thats what I wanted to write about. Small, everyday and insignificant ones which you feel lyk ‘Wow, what a coincidence…’ and you forget all about them the next minute. Uno, its lyk when you are thinking of your friend and just then the phone rings and its him/her on the phone and you say ‘I was just thinking of you...’. And your friend says ‘Me too’. You squeal and say wow and then move onto talk about something else, forgetting all about it. It happens all the tym to every one of us. Can we deny it, huh?

Well for instance, lemme share my going to this networking site and finding my now close friend, who shares the birthday with me, same interests, same car and our boarding skool lyf, and what not? Oh how could I forget the tyms we ate the bourbon without even realising it was a coincident? Even at this very moment, when I was typing a message to a friend for some purpose and exactly the same tym am receiving her message to remind me of the same work :D

Is it really a coincidence? Or a miracle? Or a think alike mind? Or this is what they call it as the ‘Maktub’?

Many a time being color coordinated without actually planning to, is also coincidental, especially when it happens more than once. Well very recently I get to see this coordination when I went to meet my friend for the first tym in years. First day, we were both going purple (very same shade too). And the second day, turning red. Wow.. I guess when we go to our wardrobe to dress up to meet each other, our brains become one and we think ‘colorfully’ alike. What more explanation could I give, hmm?

At times am confused about these coincidences too. Are these simply events which have no connection to each other or does it have more meaning to it, huh? Whatever it is, I like the fact that these lil things make my lyf more colorful today and happy for here I get a topic to blog about which will certainly make me remember these random but truly nice moments…

Killing them softly – a slow n subtle thriller

My first tym to write about a movie I watched. So I keep it as not a sole review but my added movie experience too.

Though the traffic was heavy, we managed to reach the theatre on tym.  Collected our booked tickets, the popcorn, and nachos n coke and entered the cinema hall in a rush. It was fully packed. We found our seats in the dark n settled there finally. 

Movie started and 45 mins passed already with more talks and less action. People started leaving the cinema, getting bored I suppose. And I also saw a guy, who was sleeping in the front row till the end.

This film of my favorite actor’s dwells on a story line when Americans needed a political change from Bush to Obama and the economic crisis during that period. A thriller of its own kind, plus dark comedy entwined.

With continuous meetings throughout, the dialogues were good. But in many parts I was confused n couldn't follow too. Being an average audience I think, I didn't get the grip of the story in the first half while the latter one was awesome especially the way it ended, which was one of the best scenes in the movie. Claps...!  Another scene I enjoyed was the way Brad Pitt coolly threatening one of the hoodlums in the bar and its aftermath killing scenes too. On the contrary to the Clown from The Dark Knight, here the killer’s desire to kill his victims ‘softly’ and at a distance to avoid the embarrassment in getting touchy feeling gives the meaning to the title. This so called action film shows the violence in a very subtle way .

Brad Pitt was cool as always. The casting was good but to me the character Mickey didn't make an impact with his presence except dipping his olives in the martini. The script could have been more engaging. And i liked the graphics.

It’s not a must watch film I’d say but a well crafted one. If you don’t get the point of the story, never mind, cos the final dialogues of the protagonist not only will leave you in awe but makes it clear too. With Obama’s election campaign going on the TV in the background, the protagonist condemns n says ‘America isn't a country. It is a business. So give me my f** money’. The curtain falls.

Bottom line - With awesome performances, the movie only occupies us in parts. It kills us softly too. My rating 3/5.

Slip, I think you may be interested to watch this film. I bet more than once… :D

Going Purple..

It’s been more than a month I scribbled here. And today my friend was talking about my ramblings. Lol he was bit too curious to read my thoughts again, I suppose. Thanks Slip for the wake up call. At least you are there to read my writing. And the time n place I was in when we were talking about, I thought it 'd be apt to write about my newly found gym experiences. While I was pedaling there, I started scribbling in my mind too. My new lifestyle begins…

One not so fine day, I felt like as if I was losing my stamina. I know that happens if one stays at home more and doing no big work. ‘’Vetti ah irundhale ipdi than pola..’’ I am either way too lazy or too demotivated to do it on my own. Sigh…! That’s me, for now, on a long vacation.

After giving it a thought over, over and over again, I finally decided I should go to the gym. And that’s one reason I am in the city now. Whenever I talk about losing fat, my cousins were lyk ohh u wanna go to gym :-o aft all you’re not fat. Hmm maybe I'm not ‘that’ fat but still am not happy with my weight lately. To be frank I don’t have a serious target n all. But lemme stay fit.  Imagine what will happen to me if I have no energy to run like a hell when a dog is chasing me behind?  Ufffff… Scary no?

I started surfing for the women’s only gym in my locale. I am not comfortable in front of men and that too when my tongue out at the end of every session. That’s when Jamie helped finding me the Purple, my gym, which is almost close to my home. I made the inquiries and rest… the story.

I am.. oops.. was not that fatso for you to imagine me. I couldn’t remember when I looked chubby. Ever since my childhood I was a lean and a lanky kid. Unfortunately I am putting on nowadays but not shedding the fat. After all these years, WHYY now?? Back at home, I even tried starving, cleaning the house, and even climbing up n down the stairs and yoga too. But nothing helped me. So here I am enrolled in a gym for I can get someone to drive me to get back my previous self. Will see….

The gym carries variety of packages. But I chose for a month even though it was bit over my budget. Coz for one reason, I can’t stay longer in the city and chances are there to travel a bit in the future. And there, it’s my problem that I couldn't continue anything for long. Hey, I have my reasons. Ok? So don't think that I’m someone who gives up easily. Well at least not in this one, I hope.

I think in comparison to some, my gym is relatively small and wall to wall mirror to make it look big and also to view ourselves enjoying our ride there. lol. I was bit nervous on my first day there but then the welcoming people n the ambience made me feel relaxed. Seeing all sorts of people from college goers to middle aged women, I eased up a lil. After all I am not alone with a mission..!

My trainer was good n friendly. She asked me not to force myself for the first few days. They let me use different machines with 15 - 20 mins each. I felt dizzy at the end of my first day that I remember I couldn’t even walk then. I stood there by the treadmill and relaxed for almost 5 minutes before I took another step. Oops I was wondering what happened to me. Am I growing old? L  I felt soo much heat being released from my body that day and sweated out like a pig.

Now I am on my 2nd week and they started teaching me new floor exercises to tone my body that are supposed to help me lose some inches here n there. It is quite easy and fun to do the exercises lying down. hehe. I can even rest in between. Phew! Man… I get tired easily. There also is this room where one can bathe in the steam, twice a month. I am still looking forward to enjoy the hot steam bath. No big changes made in my diet regime. That means I am already eating healthy, which certainly is good news…!

Everyday I go there, I see new faces along with the familiar ones. Thou we don’t talk much, they are my silent motivators. Inshaallah, these workouts will bring back the flexi n energy I carried a year ago. I wish I could continue this throughout, with not being lazy at home in coming months. No pain no gain someone said. But here it is no pain, no loss. I think I should buy a machine at home. Hmm, let me see what my budget says again.

Honestly, who will want to look shapeless anytime in the future, hmm? Well if not for the shape, fitness n stamina deserves a better consideration. But if you are fit, then that means you are already getting back your curves. So here I am looking forward to indulge in my new healthier lifestyle.

All I can say now is that I am so.. so tired ‘naaku thalling’ after an hour n a half session and a 10 minute walk back home. I feel like sleeping now but today we already have a weekend plans going for the new released movie, ‘Killing them softly’ casting my favorite actor Brad Pitt. I will review it afterwards... off I go now. But I ll be back sooner than before this tym.
