   Being a mother has been a life changing experience for me. Iam sure most women will agree with me on this.First ,the sheer ecstasy of seeing my new born in my arms & then the never ending worries which suddenly engulfed me as soon as my daughter was brought home.Hats off to my parents who gave their 200% to make my life comfortable during the first three months when I was staying with them. My mom fed me nutritious food around the clock while Pop entertained my little one several times during the day. My daughter didn't give me too many sleepless nights & slept soundly most of the time.

 When it was time to go back to my husband's place, I had a lot to thank God for. First, for giving me such wonderful parents who have showered me with  unconditional love from the day I was born. Now that Iam a mother I realise the turmoil my parents must have gone through during the times when I failed to live upto their expectations. I only hope that Iam able to take care of my parents in their old age as  I feel they both need some pampering & TLC. Love u mom & Pop.

Jesica movie

  Just watched 'No one killed Jessica' yesterday. Interesting & overwhelming at times. Somehow I feel the movie could have been handled in a better way. Firstly, the character of Sabrina , played by Vidya Balan is most depressing to watch.Here is a girl , fighting to nail her sister's murderer , & all she does is vent out her frustration in private.I expected  Sabrina to have an indomitable fighting spirit , remain positive at all times & also morally support her ailing parents.But the reel life Sabrina goes through the film like a person carrying a huge burden on her droopy shoulders,  without an iota of hope in her fight. Agreed that in a legal battle spanning a decade, even the strong willed can lose their faith ; but that fight for justice is the crux of the film & it has not been shown as expected. It is a sore for the eyes to see the normally vibrant & sensuous Vidya  potray such a morose character.
Also, Manu Sharma is potrayed by a faceless actor with no screen presence at all. Come on, he is the villain of the film; at least get an actor who looks like a spoilt brat & not a starved wimpy character!
There are certain moments in the film that do touch a chord & stand out like Vidya's sudden giggle during the trial, Rani's jumping on the bonnet of her boss's car & the candle light march. The flash back scenes showing the bond between the sisters are touching.
Lastly, the actor Myra is like a fresh breath of air in the movie. A fresh , youthful face & the go getter attitude of the late Jessica Lall is well defined in the movie.
So, the movie is worth a watch , but it could have been much, much better if the characters of Sabrina & Manu Sharma had punches at the right places.
