....and all that jazZ

Where the innocent are lost and innocence is found,
Fingers clutching the kites that soar, feet planted firmly on the ground.
A little window facing the world, with nothing to see,
Free spirits soar confined within the walls, C'est La Vie !

The beautiful are lost and beauty is found,
Peals of lyrical laughter break the cacophony around
To be or not to be ?..
Oh, to find the will to question... C'est La Vie !!

A Must Watch : Born into Brothels.


  • Hmm, is that the one which one the Oscar? I don't understand this Western fixation with Indian poverty, especially in Kolkatta.

  • parth : For some reason this Oscar winning documentary is different. Because Zana Briski actually has been living there.. fallen in love with those kids and has genuinely tried to make a difference. About the Western fixation with Indian poverty.. with Calcutta I am guessing you are also referring to City of Joy ? - That may be true, but for us indians its the strak reality we must live with. And We must choose to do something about. And hence such documentaries are often a gentle reminder of the parallel universe that exists in India, the one we can so easily forget. But is also part of what we call our own.
