Attitude and view changes one's perspective

So now I know how I can keep posting new ones in my blog.. The secret is "Watch movies" ha ha ha ha ha .. I eventually feel my blog site is going to become movie reviews..

I cant really resist myself from writing this today. Thanks to one of my friend who read 2 earlier posts of mine and sent a link where I can watch movies online. Now that is what I say friends are for. I tend to get drifted away from what I wish to write. Let me focus.

My caption for this posts says it all. After the movie "Everybody's doing it" I dint really fell my comfort level in watching English movies have improved. But today I have found which type of movie do attract me. Thanks to the way movies has been classified here. My attitude towards English pictures have taken a new shape!

I believe the one and only constant thing in this world is "CHANGE". [I tend to repeat this again and again! Please bear with me!] One should be with open mind to accept and admit the same. Its more easier said than done. As the time moves on we tend to understand this more. My experience with this simple concept of watching English movies was the same. I never liked Western movies. The moment I see the scenes with such backdrops in star movies [sometimes I do browse through that channel for cartoon movies back in India] , I switch over. I felt those movies with cowboys and rifles involve more of violence.

Many times less knowledge is a bliss. Unknowingly I hit upon this movie "Love Takes Wings" released in April 2009. It turned out to be a wonderful movie. Hats off to the director. Every one had done justice to their character. The little girl at the orphanage had performed well. She has expressed the roughness towards the society which had abandon many kids like her and also tenderness when it comes to serving the kids down with illness.

Story short and sweet! It revolves around a young doctor [Sarah Jones] who arrives at a small town Sikeston as a physician. The town is affected by a unknown epidemic and she is put under the pressure to solve[?!?!] rather find the cause and treat for the same.

The movie's time period is when Liberty of women was under question. The villagers were not able to accept Sarah even as a nurse. Those were times when only male can become a doctor. The way she is humiliated and how she makes them believe her as a doctor is well depicted.

Being a lover of medicine and always wanting to peruse a career in it I personally felt this movie close to my heart. Though it was a simple dysentery, I was not able to believe how it would have been to treat the same before the discovery of a proper medicine. This movie gave me a visual treat to all those data my school books referred to. Thanks to all those who had contributed their time and life for all those modern day medicine which has helped us anticipate and a cure to keep us live longer!

I loved to watch the way Sarah prepared the saline bottles, tubes, saline mixture, intravenous injections with all those available stuffs like wood, rubber etc.! Gosh I am not sure if I was born then, before this birth, but it was really exciting to see medication done on those days!

Reason behind the spread of water-born disease [as called now] in the movie was a unused well which was being used for dumping! On discovering the same the water connection from the well was closed and hence the spread of disease was controlled.

Seeing this it just struck me that even on those days when there was no knowledge of disease people were open for implementing the remedy measures and play safe when enlightened about the cause. Now with the advent of good and high cost medication we are not ready for any control measures. Is medicine a boon or curse? With more knowledge and ways to control we never bother about the sanitation in our surroundings. All we care for is our home or office or place of our regular visit. From world sanitation its just personal sanitation we have now.

Whenever I see koovam [A river that flows around chennai] I feel bad that we had really worked hard to change a river to a proper gutter! Having had a river in hand, and spoiling it properly with all means, we now expect neighboring states to lend us with water!

I know I am getting too much sentimental..I have to stop! Just writing and shouting wont help to improve situation. Every individual should think twice before dropping a garbage in public places! This could be pretty good start to keep the world clean!

well said madam and by the way u are not centimental. what u said was 100% true. theree are plenty of good movies in different categories. as english movie are only 1.5 hrs they move the story fast. also each movie will have nearly 10 songs which u might have not noticed during the film. so what link are u using up to watch. no problem if ur blog is turned into movie review page :) . u do read crime novels right and there are many movies in that category with lot of twist in the story. of course being a crime movie violence will be there but the plot makes u watch. there are movies which when u start watching it is bits and pieces but at the end everything is connected so well. recently i watched a movie named "chaos" in tv. the has absolute twist. the title is so perfect according to chaos theory every event looks to occur at random. but when u watch all these events together it will be like a jigsaw puzzle revealing a particular pattern. chaos is bank robbery story in which the police man who heads up the case is the culprit atlast and he gets away with robbery too. whats interesting is the way he robs the bank. a computer virus is send into banks mainframe. the task of virus is to take very little money say 100 or 50 dollars from various account into a seperate account. u know banks they check in more vigorously for big amounts being transfered. ok i guess i am boring u. did u see horton it was really good. when u find time do see "music and lyrics". it is a beautiful love story with beautifull songs. ok i guess if i write on movies i will keep on writing. take care ma.,
