Something the lord made

When my fren first gave this DVD as a gift along with many movies... i thought it would be a movie like "Gods must be crazy" by Spielberg... But I was totally wrong.
This is a very serious movie.

This movie is about a Cardiac surgeon and his assistant. Its a real life story about how first heart surgery was done by a black. Behind every invention or discovery there is huge effort... which is unseen most of the time... there are many failures. This movie conveys the message that one should love thys work. Sheer dedication is a must and only then one can expect successA must watch.
The actual doctors snap is this:

here is the link for more details about the movie:

The Hungry Tide

This is a book by Amitav Ghosh...

I never heard about this book untill I saw it with a road side seller. The title of the book attracted me the most. I heard about the author for his distinguished work.

I read few lines from the cover page of this book before buying it. It talks about Sunderbans... tigers... tidal waters... I bought this book...
Till now i read few chapters from this book... its interesting... its different from my usual style of books. As I read through this book, I could see a new anxiety in myself... to know whats gonna happen next...

Maybe this is common feeling among readers... A book worth reading i suppose... I can give my opinion in an unbiased way only after reading this book completely...

happy reading!!!!

This is an excellent movie... it gives insight about indian women living in foreign countries...
Its useless to marry an NRI or a software engineer and work for him like a slave.. or rather a maid who takes care of everything.
Every woman should be independent... educated enough to live on her own if something goes wrong. Fight for her rights if needed.

Atlas Shrugged

By Ayn Rand...

Its a great novel... of course this fact is proved by most of them in the world. I m just added to it.
I couldn't stop reading this book. It enhances your thought process towards society, economy of the country.
Its good... Worth reading.

A movie is going to be released based on this novel. Ms Jolie is going to play the role of Dagny Taggart here. I dont like this actress for some reason.
But I am waiting for the movie to be released.
