Weekend

Friday late evening there was a call from my manager to check some release blocking defects and I was forced to stay awake till 1:30. After that I took a nice nap on Saturday morn, but got up at 5:45 and I was spaced out and dizzy because of lack of sleep....

Saturday afternoon, I was tired and was stuffed like a python and wanted to sleep...But, I decided to watch Dhobi Ghat. It was a hot afternoon and I curtained my room and blocked sunshine and made the room dark and the ceiling fan whirred at a gentle speed. I was undoubtedly tired...

I dunno, if I had seen the movie in some other mood with expectations, I would not have liked it at all...But somehow, I was really freshened - Maybe it was the rains they show in the movie or the gentle pace or the life of Bombay - In fact nothing happens in the movie - Background music is so minimal and artistically used . And all the actors have done an awe-inspiring job. Very well made.

Hmmm...Other than that I had a convocation ceremony for my degree at MSRIT. The food was good and we were made to wear the caps and the provost of IIT had come all the way from Chicago and TN Seshan and Rajiv Mody (Sasken CEO) were there....Interesting event...
