Waqt (1965) Review:

The story begins in media res with no introduction to the characters. The names will be known as the movie progresses. Some of the dialogues in this movie are worth remembering for a lifetime. It has a talented star cast but the entire plot seems a bit dragged. Too many songs and a lack-lustre mundane romance is what brings it's quality down. Some sequences are quite miraculous. The way Sunil Dutt a.k.a Bablu solves the mystery of the murder while being a novice in the field of Law is quite iffy.
You might feel that your time is being wasted when you are watching the songs which are quite long and may also feel the plot is not up to the mark but the ending is quite satisfying, although a little miraculous(and iffy) as well.

Did I like the movie?
No. I feel much better contemporaries are there of that time.

Should you watch it?
If you want to learn some gut-wrenching dialogues that will shoot your reputation amongst your peers to the sky, then you may. For plot, there are better movies.

Worth the money?
This, I advise watching online. Free of cost, if you can.

Overall rating- 2.5/5

Slow water, with time can cut through rock.

Little by little, the British originated these divisions. Today, the divisions are being maintained by our politicians because hatred is much more an effective attraction than love.

And just like these divisions originated: little by little, so can they be reversed...

A little girl sat near her window watching the dark clouds in the sky. As the first drops fell on her face, she ran out to her garden giddy with excitement. She enjoyed dancing in the rain for the first time, but soon she saw a lone figure walking past her, it was the entity time.

TIME: I know you cherish this moment a lot child. But forgive me, I cannot stop for you.

...and he left.
Soon many tiny creatures appeared behind her and beckoned to her.

MEMORIES: Don't worry! We'll keep all your precious moments safe!

REVIEW - 'Deep Work' by Cal Newport
Category- Non-Fiction

In this book, Cal Newport explores and elucidates many reasons for the requirement of depth or 'deep work' in today's fast-paced world which is dominated by the distractions offered by social media.
Ranging from various experiments to hypothesis that Cal collected from many individuals, he provides methods to augment your quality in your work hours and drain the bad habits of seeking out to your phone every 1 or 2 minutes. I recall from his book where he has mentioned that the mind just like any other muscle in the body requires exercise to become stronger. You can't just lift a 100 kg load in a single day if you have never gone to the gym for quite some time. Similarly, the exercises that he has suggested requires slow and step by step approach.

Rating: 4/5

Pros:
-Detailed explanation about the problems faced by individuals in their work due to distractions.
-Real life examples of success in using the methods.

Cons:
-Not all the methods provided in the book are effective.
-Some examples could be vague in context with the related problem.

"It's coming your way! Catch the ball Nariman!" someone screamed from a distance in the field.
Nariman didn't need that indication. His eyes never left the ball that was enlarging slowly each second in his eyes.
As the ball closed in towards his direction, he raised his arms instinctively and manoeuvred at the anticipated position where the ball would land. When he realised that he would miss, he held his breath, closed his eyes and leapt.
He felt the object beautifully being clasped in his palms when they retracted by its force. The heat searing into his skin felt like bliss. And then he fell down with a thud.

Present Day
Grandma will be arriving the next day. Everyone is happy in the house except for my father and me. I don’t know why she loves my brother a lot but treats me like an outsider. Is it because I am a girl? My father thinks so. He hasn’t conveyed it to me frankly, but I have known this from his contemptuous looks that he gives when Grandma ignores me. Maybe that’s why, even though being the only son, he mostly avoids talking with her.
