"Wall Street Meets 70mm"

CNBC-TV18 & Enlighten Film Society is showcasing four movies on the Stock Markets on 5th and 6th June 2008.

 

5th June

7 pm - Wallstreet.

9.30 pm - Barbarians at the gate.

6th June

7 pm - Boiler Room.

9.20 pm - Rogue Trader.

 

The fuckall part is they are only being shown in Metro Adlabs, I’d suggest call up Seventymm or Clickflix or your local DVD wala and watch it at home in case you can’t make it to town.

 

Nevertheless it’s a nice attempt by these guys.

Vijay Tendulkar - R.I.P

Vijay Tendulkar  one of India's best writer, playwright & overall very brave social activist died today.

I would say more than his writing it was his courage to stand up for justice without fear whether supporting  people against Bhai Thakur in Virar or standing in support of Mahanagar when attacked by Shiv Sena or  Standing with the displaced people of Narmada and many more such things... Something that his daughter Priya Tendulkar did in Rajni.

After PuLa Deshpande, this is one of greatest loss to Maharashtra.

Snapshots from National Park

Inspite of living in Borivli I went to National Park today after more than 10 Years, for Deepthi it was her first visit to the all Famous Sanjay Gandhi National Park.
There weren't too many animals just saw a few Deers, One leopard and many Monkeys... The Lion Safari was bit vague and the official jeep were missing, and our Rickshaw wasnt allowed to enter the Kanheri Caves Region : ( .

But the coolest thing was the Mini Train, the 15 min ride is fun, reminds you of your school picnics and the Peddle Boating, real paisa vasool stuff.
Both @ 15 bucks per person.

The park was clean, but many of the animals were missing so were the food stalls .. the only food available were the Kulfiwalas and the Cucumber vendors.

Maybe next time we can do a group picnic and carry all our food and housie tickets and some booze :)

Things I've not been doing...

My realisation that holidays just fly so fast and the things that we plan during weekdays but never implement on holidays...

Some of the things I've not been doing :-

  • Scanning retro family pics
  • Crossing over to Gorai beach over the ferry ride and eating Tadgolas.
  • Swimming in my building pool.
  • Playing cricket (seal) matches of 55 Bucks and MRI tennis balls
  • Reading the books I've bought.
  • Watching the movies I downloaded on my LAN
  • Sending a 'hello' scrap to my Freinds on Orkut.

Hopefully I can Tick mark some of the them this weekend, till then its back to the usual grind.

I think we should have a collbrative weekend list on the lines of 43things and make the best of the holidays.
