Enid Blyton

Let me start this section with my favourite childhood author.
Enid Blyton was a very enthralling children’s story-teller. Her novels always
spell bounded me and transported me into a world of mystery and adventure.
Blyton came under some criticism for her stereotyped characters, simple
writing styles but remained famous with the young readers. The simplistic view
with which the novels illustrated the traditional moral lessons was successful in
captivating my attention for hours on end. How I get nostalgic when I remember
my younger years and the books I enjoyed!

Pets or Accesories!!

Last week i was visiting my friends place to  celebrate Onam- a Southindian festival. As i entered her building i was stopped right in my tracks by a distressing view. I was shocked to see a parrot in a cage hanging outside a door. Yet another example of  “How sinister humans can be!!”  What were they even thinking. Did they want the parrot to do the work of chimes!! Or Did they want people to know they own a parrot the 1st thing they visited them.
Why the hell did they buy a parrot if they didn’t know to take care of it.

Pet is defined as “An animal kept for amusement or companionship”. And recently its got another definition something you carry or own that makes u look better, as a means to accessorize you.

This reminds me of dog purses. Its the so called “in-thing” to carry your dog everywhere in your purse. Some have even claimed to buy pets to match their handbags or get their pets coloured according to their changing handbags.

Imagine yourself stranded in a place where u don’t get to stretch your legs for hours. It wasn’t bad enough that earlier the dogs were restricted to move till where their dog-belt extended and now they want to further limit their region of access>> a small bag where the poor animal has problems breathing let alone move a limb.

What dog owners fail to understand is that their pets don’t need the so-called “bow-wow bags”.  All they need is the freedom from such atrocious and callous human behavior.

Memoirs of a Geisha

Memoirs of a geisha is an intriguing movie which draws attention to the various facets of the life of a geisha.

It is a film adaptation of the novel of the same name, produced by Steven Spielberg and Douglas Wick. It was directed by Rob Marshall.

Geishas are traditional female Japanese entertainers whose skills include performing various Japanese arts such as classical music and dance.

I was bewitched while watching the snow dance from the movie. And am sure anyone will be lured into watching the movie once they see the following video of the dance.
