Read, Listen and Watch.. a must!

Listening to: Teri Deewani(Kailasa) by Kailash Kher
Genre: Sufi Rock
Rating: ***** because of the feel and high that it brings

I watched a bollywood film or say a film itself after a long long time, so one movie is out of the lengthy list. This time it was 'Maine Gandhi ko nahi mara'. I must say the story and screenplay was very original and interesting. I just loved it and strong performances by every single character made it even more worth watching. Direction rather camerawork is lousy in some frames but then the powerful performances compensate it. Anupam Kher is at his best and Urmila was also very good. Anupam also got Best Actor Award for this film at Kara Film Festival. I won't tell much about movie or else the suspence will get killed but I do recommend this film to you. Scenes are haunting and the film is very touching. It puts all big banner films to shame, big applause to Anupam for trying and financing such offbeat and challenging movie.

The message posted below can save your and your loved ones life so please give it a read,

During a BBQ a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone who offered to call paramedics that she was fine and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up. Her name was Ingrid. Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the afternoon. Ingrid's husband called later that evening telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital at 6:00pm, Ingrid passed away. She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ - had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. It only takes a minute to read this - a neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed and getting to the patient within 3 hours which is tough.

Thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
1. Ask the individual to SMILE.
2. Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
3. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE(coherently) (e.g....It is a sunny day today)

If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, immediately consult the doctor and describe the symptoms. After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions.

They presented their conclusions at the British Stroke Association's annual meeting last February. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. BE A FRIEND AND SHARE THIS ARTICLE WITH AS MANY FRIENDS AS POSSIBLE, you could save their lives.

Thank you
