The smoke-filled world out there is really appealing. The films seem to be of more rightist mentality. Ya, it sure touches the matter, but the touch seem to be gentle thus lacking the deep scrutiny of the matters. Some as always is the case with the so called 'art films', are quite lagging. Yet there are some real thoughts n frames. I always thought why drag a subject which we can present in one and a half hours by another hour. It isn't really the concept of cinema. People get away from books for short form explanations and good visualizations. Yet there are some really delicious dishes from Borgman, Jules Dassin and Godard (classics). Retros of Shyam Benegal, Ritwik Ghatak and Omar Kavoor. Its always great when you can watch all these variations the same day. Am learning it. Lets see...

The festival of football begins on 16th..
The english premier league..
Once again the ball rolls down the turf of uncertain beauty..
With new additions of creative footballers, the teams are ready for the final go..
Arsenal as always injected some fresh blood into a squad with lot of creativity. Players to watch will be Fabregas, Vela and Adebayor...
Astonvilla have a manager who has a level head on his shoulders to make things bright in Martin Oneil. Players to watch- Agbonlahore, Young and Reo-coker..
Blackburn runs in with a loss of a long time manager. Might affect their game a bit. Players to watch- Santacruz, Derbyshere and Pederson..
Bolton shed some weight of them by selling El Hadji Diouf, a player who was lacked spirit. Boss Garry Megson would be still thrilled by the great comeback which ensured their spot in the top flight last season. Players to watch- Elmander. Kevin Davies and Martin Taylor..
Chelsea still don't seem to utilize the oil money usefully. A great manager in Scolari is a gain but i wonder whether Bosingwa is worth 16 million. They did justice to Makalele by selling him to PSG. Players to watch- Deco, Ballack and Kalou..
Everton is entering this season with lot of problems. Lack of good signings n injuries might give them a bad start and thus a bad finish. Players to watch- Anichebe, Arteta and Pienaar..
Fulham registered the most signings till now this season. But they don't seem to spend their money with some thought. Players to watch- Healy, Andy Johnson and Dempsey..
Hull city, one of the promoted teams, will have to try hard to be at the top flight after this season. Pemier league experience of players like Boateng and Anthony Gardner might help them. Players to watch- Geovanni, Bernard Mendy..
Liverpool insured with a strike power which is worth millions. A strike power to envy for other teams. But it all depends on the man who utilizes it, Rafa Benitez. Players to watch- Torres, Gerard and Ryan Babel..
Manchester city again have a new manager. The premier league experience of Mark Hughes is important to their progress. A UEFA spot is possible. Players to watch- Elano, Micheal Johnson and Jo..
Manchester united being the champions will have things to prove. Cristiano Ronaldo will be tested after his commitment was questioned. Injuries to Ronaldo and Rooney might give a shaky start to the campaign. Players to watch- Ronaldo, Anderson and Tevez..
Middlesbrough as always seems to have a team for an ordinary campaign. Southgate's managerial skills will be tested. Players to watch- Afonso Alves, Downing and Tuncay Sanli..
Newcastle united still don't seem to aquire players they need. Lacks the fire power again. Kevin Keegan is the vital thing. Players to watch- Obafemi Martins, Nzogbia and Beye..
Portsmouth might continue their last season run. Have some explicit talents in all sections. Players to watch- Defoe, Utaka and Kranjacr..
Stoke city might find the premier league an inappropriate stage. Don't seem to have the resources to cling to top flight. Players to watch Ricardo Fuller, Dave Kitson and Mamady Sidibe..
Sunderland is packing their ranks with some sense. There are players who can be the stars for a day, which might turn their fortune around. A test for Roy Keane as well. Players to watch- Kenwyn Jones, Miller and Craig Gordon..
Tottenham might be a serious contender for the champions league spot. With Juande Ramos in the manager seat, they might give a show to remember. Also look for some serious entertainers in Arshavin and Modrich. Players to watch- Arshavin, Luka Modrich and Darren Bent..
West Brom's come back season will make them play some tough football to retain the spot. The good management wing is their strength. Players to watch- Greening, Ismael Miller and Carson..
Westham united will be under serious pressure to make their owners happy. Maintains a good squad of experienced but unsuccessfull players. Players to watch- Ashton, Behrami and Bellamy..
Wigan Athletic might find it difficult to escape relegation this season. Players to watch- Jason Koumas, Valencia and Henry Camara..

Abhinav Bindra...
My dear fellow, thank you...
You just made me understand wat is pride...

Gold is worth more than a thousand for a gram now...
A member of parliament is worth lakhs...
A life is worth a lifetime...
War is worth litres of blood lost n gained...
Our silence is worth a lot of cheap gains...

Your gold medal's worth can't be assessed...
Its the pride of a nation...
You gave water to one who is very thirsty...
Your eyes showed me wat is being proud like...
Your smile showed me how happy v can get...
Thanks man...
It was great to hear "jana gana mana" in olympics...

Sure we care about the world...
But India is a feeling so deep n passionate...
You just made that feeling erupt...

The nation salutes you Abhinav...

ഈ രാത്രിയിലെ എണ്റ്റെ ചിന്തകള്‍ക്ക്‌ നിണ്റ്റെ മണമാണു,
നിണ്റ്റെ നനഞ്ഞ മുടിയിഴകളുടെയും
വിയറ്‍ത്ത ദേഹത്തിണ്റ്റെയും മണം
നിണ്റ്റെ നിശ്വാസത്തിണ്റ്റെയും
ചുംബനങ്ങളുടെയും മണം.

ഈ രാത്രിയിലെ എണ്റ്റെ സംഗീതത്തിന്ന് നിണ്റ്റെ ശബ്ദമാണു,
നിണ്റ്റെ കനത്ത നിശ്വാസത്തിണ്റ്റെയും
നിര്‍വൃതിയുടെയും ശബ്ദം
നിണ്റ്റെ മാറിലെ കുളമ്പടികളുടെയും
നിണ്റ്റെ ഭ്രാന്തിണ്റ്റെയും ശബ്ദം.

ഈ രാത്രിയിലെ എണ്റ്റെ സ്വപ്നങ്ങള്‍ക്ക്‌ നിണ്റ്റെ നിറമാണു,
നിണ്റ്റെ സ്വപ്നങ്ങളുടെയും
നിണ്റ്റെ കാത്തിരിപ്പിണ്റ്റെയും നിറം
നിണ്റ്റെ വിശ്വാസത്തിണ്റ്റെയും
നമ്മുടെ മുന്തിരിത്തോപ്പുകളുടെയും നിറം.

ഈ രാത്രിയിലെ എണ്റ്റെ ജനനം നിണ്റ്റെ മടിത്തട്ടിലാണു,
നിണ്റ്റെ അടിവയര്‍ നനച്ച കണ്ണീരിലും
നിണ്റ്റെ കണ്ണുകളുടെ ആഴത്തിലും
നിന്നില്‍ അലിഞ്ഞുചേറ്‍ന്ന നിമിഷത്തിലും
നമ്മള്‍ കൊണ്ട പൂറ്‍ണതയിലും.


ബോംബു പൊട്ടിച്ച്‌
അമ്മയെ കൊന്നു.

പൊക്കിള്‍കൊടി അറുത്ത
കത്തിയിലെ ചോരപ്പാടും
അമ്മയുടെ മുലയിലെ
ദന്തക്ഷതവും ബാക്കിയായി.


മറേ ബേസിനിലും
