its official now.i no longer teach at cottons .i have moved on. presently i am a teacher at christ college.its been a month.what a month its been.new people,new students,new locale, new work culture.i was sadly out of depth the first week. i am sure the people around sensed this discomfiture of mine .thankfully most were extremely helpful(having my husband as a colleague has been a saving point-from my angle not his i am sure).the students have been an immense source of inspiration and affection.a special mention has to be made of the second year post graduate students.they show a lot of promise.i enjoy interacting with them the most.in the coming weeks a lot is expected to happen i hope to come a cropper.ciao.

saw two movies,'krazzy 4' and ' you me aur hum'.both the films were just average fare.in fact krazzy 4 was better than the other.kajol was sensatonal as usual but the story itself ,i thought was somewhat pretentious and wordy.i am still confused as to what ajay devgan wants to to convey through his film you ,me aur hum.i have read the original story 'love letters' on which ajay has based his film.the book has greater depth and the protagonist more character.but i guess we need to appreciate ajays guts.its not easy convincing an audience these days about love through wordy dialouges when the average attention span of most everyone is milli seconds.awaiting kareena's 'tashan'.hope to see many more films in the coming weeks.ciao.

i find time after nearly two months to voice my thoughts.a lot has happened the past few weeks-work wise and in the home front.had two months of much needed holiday.saw many movies.liked most of them(my husband says i have become less discerning a viewer).i might have to agree with him.with time i find myself less exacting and critical.i am more accommodating than i was in the past.earlier i expected nothing but a near perfect movie( if that's possible that is),more fool me.in the bargain i lost out on countless movies.these days i am a willing acolyte of 'anything will do' club.yes i guess i am desperate.i see everything and then pass judgement(sometimes not even that--scared of cold turkey--withdrawl does have that effect).liked aja nachle,even though it was a no show at the BO.thought halla bol was trite.taare zameen par was excellent not a dry eye in the theater.looking forward to akbar jodha.lets see if the magic of dhoom two can be recreated by ash n hrithic.here's to movie magic.ciao.

its that time of year again-exams!a time for students to give it their best shot.i hope all my students do well.i am bothered about those who are capable but throw it all away without much thought.of late i get this feeling from my students that they don't give too much importance to academics.its the job that matters at the end of the day.i guess it does matter but academics matter too.believe you me,when least expected it comes in useful-the entire baggage-lessons,exams,marks.and don't be surprised if you were to miss it all.many students come back to say they miss the comforting routine that all these things represent.well do your best gals.ciao.

today had an interesting class with the final years.the topic was headline writing.when the class was first given the headline count they hardly comprehended but slowly acceptance came and they participated in it whole heartedly.there was hilarity and taunts seeing one another's blunders.a teacher always prefers a class that jells well together and humour is definitely a good bridge. i have a class with the jain college students on monday i am hoping that students out there show interest and acumen for the subject. i find a sense of lethargy in students maybe the system is getting to them.my sincere plea to them wake up capture the moment lest it passes you.catch you all later.ta da.
