Movies and corn



No pop corn. Boiled corn.

Anushka was having a small piece of corn on the cob and yours truly was having one. I offered the third bit to my mother and she refused.

Anushka to her grand ma with concern- " Paati, why are you not having?"

Without waiting for a reply from paati, to me " Amma give me that piece to me- I will eat it" with urgency which implied quickly before paati changes her mind!!

*********

Saw The Bong Connection and Saas Bahu and Sensex over the last couple of nights. (Anush has been sleeping early. Navy has been returning late)

The former was surprisingly interesting - it brought out the conflict and contrast of not belonging anywhere but wanting desperately to belong.... you know- NRI trying to be Indian- Indian trying to fit in in Texas...

Saas Bahu.... was a let down despite the fact that I adore Kiron Kher. All the characters were rather stereotyped and caricaturised in my opinion. Farook Sheik thoroughly wasted as well.
