Photography as a hobby

What is life ? It is an experience and filled with mix of good and bad memories. What is the best way to capture it other than Photography ???

Buy a decent camera.... learn properly about how to take a picture., Improvise it... be a good observer.... improve over a period.... Capture your lovely moments. Share it with first circle of friends and family. I would recommend this to every individual on earth. But it is an hobby ... and stay with it.

To all the high headed individuals who think SLR should be owned only by experts, professional photographers.... Go to hell..... SLR is a commodity and every one has a right to buy and use it. They can even exhibit their pictures in gallery if they can afford it.... You don't own anything other than some abusive tweets or cribs... get on with life dumb folks...

Imtiaz Ali's Rockstar - Movie review

Movie Name: Rockstar
Director: Imtiaz Ali
Overall Rating - Very good if you are sick are tired of Mindless Masala movies

Saw the movie at Odeon, Manchester on 12th Nov, 2011.

Plus Points:

1. Imtiaz Ali's approach to the movie.... It is simple, journey based, experience based.... didn't try to find an end to story....
2. Lyricist - Irshad Kamil - was wonderful... less dialogues... Ranbir's emotions are mostly conveyed through Lyrics.... he has contributed immensely.
3. Music - What to say.... another masterpiece from Rahman
4. Ranbir Kapoor - Acted really well... emoted very well.... would have been really good if he had moved his left hand while playing Guitar.... as he claimed that he learnt playing Guitar for acting in this movie.

Minus Points:

1. Nargis - She looks good but doesn't look like a common girl... more from rich and famous attitude... hence, the problem.... or the lack while emoting...
2. Screenplay - lacked coherence like.... where he learnt guitar classes, who was his musical mentor etc etc...

Favourite Scenes....

1. Plenty... like Samosa in pain scene, tearing the contract, signal scene bwn Ranbir & his manager, Caravan scene bwn Ranbir & Aditi Rao....

Sensex outlook Nov, Dec 2011

Tough international political, financial problems prevailed above the Sensex over the last 3 months resulting in severe volatility....

Dull period ahead of the year end.... hence, expect the following... Support levels 16500, 15750; Resistance 18200, 18900;

Avoid trading in huge positions in Futures... Indian trading mood is bit if low key due to low IIPs, bad corporate governance news like Kingfisher airlines, inflation and higher interest rates. Currency volatility would impact the profit margins over this quarter too.
