Last night i watched Tintorettor Jishu, i had missed is when it had come to the movie hall. Got myself the DVD and simply loved it. I think Director Sandip Roy has really worked hard on this film. This is definitely much better than Kailasher Kelenkar & Bombayer Bombaytey. The climax was done perfetly. Jatayu was over the top and i think he should be chucked. Digital Filiming, Dolby Digital Sorround, locations like Hong Kong simply wonderful. Bengali cinema has really come of age. Waitimg for 2010 when the next Feluda will come. Sandip Ray i am waiting. Accoriding to the director the next one may be Jotokando Kathmundu.
It was bit funny to see the chage in technology that is seen in this film. Tintorettor Jishu took nearly 3 years to complete due to budget problem and some issue with the producer regarding shooting in Hong Kong. What you notice carefully is that the Mobile Handsets used by the charecters in the begning of the film are really old Nokia handsets which no longer exists in the market. When the location switches to Hong Kong suddenly you see swanky handsets being used as this portion was shot later. Anyways better late than never.
This morning i was kinda feeling sick. Due to my fracture in right foot toe my whole body weight was getting too much for the left foot. Last night it was paining terribly and started swelling. Morning felt bit feverish so i decided to skip office for a change. My niece, nephew and my sis is also suffering for weather change and down with fever. Morning i woke up late and the first thing that i did was to climb to the terrace and looked up in the sky. Todays its Vishwakarma Puja and traditionally in Kolkata people fly kites.
I very well remember that even 10 – 15 years back i could see the morning sky filled with kites. Unfortunately the Promoter Culture ripped apart a basic thing required for this sport that is open sky. My house today is sorrounded 3 side by multi storied buildings making it almost impossible to fly kites. For past few years i had to go to my cousins house to fly kites. It has been a tradition with me to skip what ever work that i have and fly kites on 17th of Sepetember every year.
During noon i was discussing the same with my father and even he was noticing the change. Actually flyimg kites is much more that a sport, its like you are spending money buying Kites, Manjaah & Momtana Shutoo and enjoying cuuting other kites and seeing your own kite get cut while strage people run behing those cut kites to catch them.
I decided that this had to change. It was more like a sense of defiance. I took my bike (with my broken toe) and went to Jarrah’s Kite shop in Sham Shul Huda Road. This is the same guy from where my father used to buy kites. I bought Manjaah (500 Meters) for 100 Rupees and 10 Kites for 20 Rupees.
I started flying in the afternoon sun and yes i did manage to cut one. Bhooooooo Kattaaaa the sound from my terrace woke most of my neighbours attention. By evening suprisingly some of my neighbours were seen on the terrace flying kites. This really tured out to be a good Vishwakarkma Puja after many years.
The final count: I have cut 5 Kites, I have lost 5 Kites, 2 Kites got stuck in the appartment in front, 2 got wet from a afternoon drizzle & 1 kite still left. Any one wana dare with me????? I stilll have one left. See you next year till then Bhoooooooo Kattaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Added an Aquarium Air Pump. Hope this will keep air circulating enough for the 3 fishes to survive, including the Fighter which was bout to die. It costed me 100 Rupees, i am sure would have got it a bit cheaper somewhere else, but the fish had to be fed oxygen.
Our 1 week old Gold Fish died yesterday 😦 bye bye Goldie. The fish bowl i guess was too small for it. On 6th of September my wife got it as a gift from one of her student. There were 2 fishes; Gold Fish and a Fighter. We had to put the fighter in a huge bucket separating it out so that it would survive.
Yeahhhh finally i receive my ITIL Foundation Certificate all the way from Netherlands. This afternoon it came to office through TNT. This has been one of my most loved moment. I was eagerly waiting for this to come. Honestly one thing, i really did not like the photographs in the certificate. What on earth are those mountaineers doing in my certificate? It looks more like the certificate you will receive if you climb to the summit of Mt. Everest. It could have been made much better. Hey one more thing i also received my Green Diamond Batch, i am sure i wont be wearing it any where. My next target PMP certification. PMP here i come, but before i do that let me earn some more money.
