Benjamin Zander's passion for music is truly contagious.
When the speaker is passionate about his talk, it shows!

This movie made me sit up and notice. Not sure of the truth in the claims it makes.

"Asha for Education is a secular organization dedicated to change India by focusing on basic education in the belief that education is a critical requisite for socio-economic change. Asha has supported more than 800 different child education projects allover India."

I've signed up to participate in the half marathon with the Asha Foundation. One of the few useful things I've done in the past few months.

Do contribute here if you believe in the cause.

Refreshing break from the ordinary!

For the last few months that I've been in this city, the striking thing to notice is the thriving indian population here. Atlanta, like many other US cities has a steady inflow of indians every year. They have regular Kutcheris (thankfully) and elaborate temple rituals. The hindu temple here is very beautiful and frequently visited.

You can call the temple to receive an automated recording that says "Press 1 for inquires. Press 2 to talk to the priest..". The prasad can be purchased using your credit card. Apart from other minor attempts at modernisation, I've seen things like mp3s of slokas that can be downloaded from temple websites etc. It felt strange when I first saw these things, but it works well here.

Managed to get a snapshot of the place. The weather these days is very pleasant. Sitting at the main entrance is a great way to unwind and feel at home.

Listening to this brilliant piece of work by Priya Ganapathy as Lingo Leela on Radio City. Hilarious, I tell you!

Listening to a carnatic concert over the phone was one of the most pleasant things that happened this semester. Thanks romaamor !

Enjoyable watch. When animation is used in "non-animation films", it either stands out or dilutes some aspect of the movie.

Found the animation used in this film interesting.

Was looking at some old Saregama videos and realized that the talent this show used to attract was just unbelievable. Its saddening to see the state of the show today (influenced by American idol and audience votes).
