A #BlackandWhite movie-watching experience

I’ve been invited to movie screenings several times, and I usually turn them down. I have a low tolerance level for mediocre movies, and so I accept screening invites only if I already have a strong idea that I”ll like the movie.

But an invite from Black and White whisky to come view Deadpool at JW Marriott was definitely not to be missed.

I’ve never watched a movie screening at a posh hotel before, and I was looking forward to an evening of pampering and entertainment.

Dear Zindagi – Five reasons to watch this movie

Dear Zindagi – Five reasons to watch this movie

Dear Zindagi is being telecast on Zee Cinema this Sunday 23rd April at noon, and I am really excited to watch this movie. These days with two small kids, a job, and a blog to juggle, I don’t get the time to watch movies at the cinema at all. The only movies I watch are on Netflix or TV, long after the kids have gone to bed, and if I am not bone-tired by then (as is often the case).

So, I missed Dear Zindagi in the cinema, but I’m really excited to catch it on TV this Sunday, and I think you should too. Here are five reasons why.

Last week of December was the Winter break, and now after a week of sleeping, and eating when I please, my circadian rhythms are all over the place, and I am feeling enormously tired and jet lagged although I went no further than Chennai (about 300 km east of where I live) to my parents’ place.

As you might have guessed from my blog title and first sentence, I spent the break alternating between being a couch potato, and being a lazy hippo wallowing in the water, and felt thoroughly relaxed in the process.

All my RSI-related aches and pains, and Vitamin D deficiency-related pains all faded away taking me to a mellow state. And yes, the multiple bottles of beer helped too 🙂 .

Here’s a quick rundown of all the happenings.

Teacher’s Day – Inspiration through Books, TV, and Movies

Every year sometime late in August, Snubnose comes to me for help on some project or the other – to make a little something special for her teacher. This year for the first time, she’s going all independent on a project of her own. The ever independent Piglet also scorned my help – scribbling out a drawing of an elephant (or was it a dinosaur for his teacher)?

Anyway, with nobody needing my help, the time hangs heavy on my hands. And hence this blog post where I list the top teacher’s pets, and teachers on books, movies, and TV.
