Rashees, Stars and Death

Saw What is your Rashee and wished Tata sky had a fast forward facility- cannot believe it was a film by Ashutosh. The tele serial Mr Yogi long back on DD was fantastic and this was a complete let down. The lead TV actor there - Vikram or Mohan Gokhale - and in this the lack lusture Baweja- no comparison at all!!

When I was in college I followed everything from Ganesha says( Daruwala) to Linda Goodman , Peter Vidal to Chinese predictions. Now it took me a month to figure out Aditi's star sign!!

While on stars, Anush was offered a lame explaination of death by me- saying Mufasa (Lion King) went on to become a star. My mother had told her that people once they get very old - go to God. Adding both explanations, now she asks if my aged grand ma would also become a star after she goes to ummachi ( God) . She is also anxious that her parents do not become stars without her!! I told her not to worry about such things and that we would always be there for her. What all goes on inside a 4 yr old's not so tiny head!!

On a lighter note, slept through Mr And Mrs Khanna and discovered why it is already out of the theatres and on cable !!

Read Fear by Jeff Abbot- an interesting plot about drug testing for trauma patients.

I'd gotten Divya a book from Sapna bookstore here..."What is Death?" by Etan Boritzer, Pilgrims Publishing. It helped her understand a lot. (she was 6 then)

oh, I can just imagine how hard it is to explain death to a 4 year old and without scaring them, when even adults find it difficult to accept.
