The Notebook - Watched it over and over but it still remains fresh!

The Notebook, for some reason is the one of the best movies I have ever watched. It is completely worth every dime and time you spend! Oh boy! Do guys like Noah Calhoun (Played by the handsome, Ryan Gosling) really exist now? Or is it only in the “long long ago, so long ago” era?

Well, the movie did not have any major glitch. (Even if it had, it deflected from my tear-filled eyes…he he). Just like the Kollywood and Bollywood movies our poor hero, Noah meets the rich, beautiful, city bred girl, Allie (Played by Rachel Mc Adams).

Noah is naughty, flattering, and falls crazily in love with Alley. Predictably, how can any girl resist such a charming lad? Yes, Little Miss. Alley falls in love with Noah, and yeah… they hang out, have fun, ultimately, they are crazzzzy about each other.

Now just as expected (from an Indian movie though!), Alley’s mom is totally against this love, calls it puppy love, and sends her off to school, out her love’s reach. After 7 years of separation, Ally returns to the same old town with her fiancé – Lon (Played by James Marsden). She meets Noah again and finds out that he is still crazily in love with her. Well… again little miss sunshine couldn’t resist his magnetic love…falls for him again! This time, she struggles, realizes what she really wants in her life (With help of Noah, of course) and puts her foot down that her life is with Noah.

All is well, but the real sweetness unfolds when the director shows how the couple lives when they turn 60. Alley falls in to a strange memory sickness and loses all the sweet memories of their love, marriage life, and Noah but old Noah’s love for her only increases. The movie has a sad but a satisfying climax! (No other climax would have been perfect!)

“True love is eternal”

If Only...

If only I had not met you

If only I had not fallen in love with you

If only you had not reciprocated my love

If only you had not met her

If only you had not lied

If only I had not believed that lie

If only I had not chucked you out

Life without Vitamin CP (Cell Phone)?

I cannot imagine my life without a cell phone now! Seriously, I feel a cell phone is very very important in my life. It’s my deary reminder that reminds me some important “things-to-do” (If not for these reminders, I will be subjected to the screams and scowls of my mum and dad), an alarm, to wake me up every morning (The task even my mommy dearest gave up, AND without an alarm… I guess I’ll wake up only by noon everyday!). In addition, I could listen to some music whenever I get bored or tensed. I can even take some snaps of anything that catches my eye on the way, in my office, or wherever!!!

Albeit the uses of a cell phone are not limited to a cauldron, I now doubt whether they are really useful because I met a colleague of mine, who said, “I don’t use a cell phone, cos I felt I don’t need one” (Mr.S’nan, I am truly dumb struck! Hats off to you!) He must be in his late 20’s and is married! (People note – “MARRIED”) My big doubt is… how can he manage things without a cell phone? (Won’t his wife want him to buy some emergency grocery? Veggies? Or anything for that matter?!?!?) He uses the public transport to commute; won’t he get bored at all? (NO, he doesn’t have an iPod either!)

Now, THE BIG QUESTION IS…can I do a day…err... may be a week without a cell phone??!?!?! The answer is an obvious NO!

How many of YOU have tried living sans cell phone at least for a week?

Child Labour Soars High in India

How many of you have got your car or bike cleaned, washed, or repaired by grease smeared, tatter clothed, smiling child in the past one year? I am sure there are quite a lot of you nod “yes”. Yes, indeed, child labour is very much in practice in every part of India! Despite the ban made by our government in October 10, 2006, many mechanic shops, factories, small-scale industries, and restaurants hire children below the age of 14 for the age old reason – more work and less pay.

This is not just the whole picture! According to a latest survey by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), approximately 246 million children between the age of 5 and 15 are employed in various hazardous and non-hazardous works. To add to that, Pacific – Asian countries tops the list of countries with highest child labours and not so surprisingly, India tops the list of countries in the Pacific – Asian countries.

Why should our country wear this dirty crown? The instant answer is, many Indian men and women are below the poverty line and lack the basic education to fetch a job or earn their daily bread. Inevitably, the responsibility is shared with the children of their household. The lack of employment opportunities for the low-skilled workers in urban sectors and the degrading requirement for physical labour in the rural sectors also add up to the increasing child labour.

This increase in the number of child workers, working for low wages has triggered the greedy minds of many employers, who started the practice of child trafficking. In India, child trafficking has increased two-folds in the past decade. Sometimes parents, themselves come forward to sell their children for a few hundred thousand rupees, to pay off a debt or just to feed their stomach for a few more months. These children are either made to work without wages or not given adequate food and sleep. Some children are even forced to work as sex-workers or beggars. Whether the parents of these innocent children are aware of these facts remains unknown.

To eradicate this kind of injustice done to children is a big goal for the nation and us. Schemes like the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan have been implemented by our government. In addition, the Indian government has also launched 76 child labour projects that have been sanctioned under the National Child Labour Project Scheme that covers 150,000 children across our country.

Under the Child labour Prohibition Act of the Indian government, child labour is banned in 13 industrial sectors and 52 types of work, which includes domestic work and work in the hospitality industry. According to this act these sectors should not employ children below 18 years, but, lending a deaf ear, there are many industries and individuals who continue to employ children for many industrial and domestic works. Many of us fail to realize that, the government has many rules and laws in place to abolish child labour, and it us who are encouraging child labour both directly and indirectly. The answer for the million dollar question, “How to abolish child labour?” lies within us! Stop encouraging child labour and do not fear to raise your voice against your neighbour or mechanic who employs children for their own greed for money.
