A Beautiful Mind & A Living Legend

Part 1 : The movie - A Beautiful Mind
Yes..Yes...The movie has been out for more than 5 years and the whole world has watched it and I am probably the last person to watch the movie...But I finally did watch it.

I loved the movie. I thought Ron Howard has done a great job with respect to "fictionalizing" the John Nash biography and transformed it into a fantastic movie. Not all great biographies or stories for that matter can be made as good movies.Good cinema requires a lot more than just a good storyline.Russel Crowe was just amazing in his portrayal of John Nash.I only hope , our film makers in India can come up with a movie like this.

Im a big believer that Indian and particularly Tamil Cinema has some of the best actors/directors/technicians and I hope they can rise up to the occasion to create a movie like this.

Part 2 : A living Legend - TIGER on Prowl again !
I have been following golf recently. Just my two cents for people who don't follow golf. "Yeah...This guy Tiger ...Yeahhh...He is pretty good "....(Read in Office Space style)

Tiger has 52 tour wins...12 majors championships and he is 31. This kind of domination is unheard of in sports let alone golf.Some people might argue well..Federer is dominant in tennis. Yes..True..but tennis has had many dominating players like Federer in the past and the same can be said for all sports.But Golf has never had a player dominate a decade like Tiger.His last win came at the PGA Championship that took place in Akron,Ohio.

A person who does not know golf or cannot appreciate golf will love watching Tiger play.Watch Golf...if not for anything else...Just for TIGER !

Short But Funny..

All of us love our schools/colleges etc.,....on that note , get this...
a funny snippet I read recently on the WWW...

"Mani Shankar Iyer and Subramaniam Swamy who are both alumni of a famous college in Delhi that I shall not name. Both these distinguished gentlemen reportedly do not see eye to eye. At a college reunion Mr. Swamy is said to have written the following comments in the Visitors Book, “What I am today is because of this college.” Mani Shankar Aiyer, whose entry followed, is alleged to have written, “Why blame the college?”

Classic !!!
