How do you define a good pal – a good pal is the one who sends you a link to something so delightful as this.
Thanks Jaspal for seeing the inherent wisdom in the article even though you are male and would not know what she is talking about.
I was watching Baghban today. I had wanted to see it when it was released but my kids would have none of that. They did not want to be embarassed by me. Yes, I am a softie and cry in movies. I normally go for a weep-fest prepared with a box of tissues. Heck I can even cry at a well presented Ram-Bharat milaap, though its such an overdone subject. So I sat down with a towel and a huge cup of tea to watch the movie. I wasn’t dissappointed.
What really impressed me was the quiet dignity displayed by the parents facing the changed circumstances and the realisation that their selfish and thoughtless children have no empathy or love for them. So what did they do – they turned around the situation by fighting it and by being positive, like the girl on that public forum in front of an all male audience (in that article).
Life is not about being rich or poor, pretty or plain – life is all about attitude. If we give up, we are finished. We are not licked until we give up.
A Sunday well spent – a lesson revised.
