Watching "Stories by Rabindranath Tagore" on Netflix got me thinking about his other works and started re-reading "Gora" once again. The last time I read that was when I was in high school. I see that work in a whole new light now. Kept me awake most of last night. What an amazing writer....
His Kabuliwalah that I read as part of middle school english still remains deeply etched in memory... Guess its time to jump back into his other works now.... Now I know what to read on the flight to India ;-)
On a side note, Radhika Apte takes Chokher Bali to a whole new scale that the movie failed to achieve. Watch it just for her histrionics even if you're not a big fan of Gurudev. Suddenly Netflix seems worth the monthly 10$ ;-)
This one, for some reason, always reminds me of the old Liril soap ad in Doordarshan (yes.... that was THE TV channel when I grew up. Yes.... I'm that old). Here it is again for you : https://youtu.be/Te-MA3yLEak
One more from the Thanksgiving weekend. We saw this Kestrel have its thanksgiving dinner of a vole... Processed using the new improved Affinity Photo 1.5. So far it looks like a much improved RAW processing from the earlier version... #MacAffinity
