Full-Blown Hindustan Fairytale

well, if you want to get inspired go ahead, but there are a few facts about Asperger's Syndrome they got wrong. For one thing, Aspies (people who have the syndrome), like I read from House Rules, have a one-track mind, but in this movie, Shah Rukh Khan, who portrays a Muslim Aspie, had so much compassion and emotion for an Aspie.

The story-telling is great, but as the movie progresses halfway, it gets more illogical and 'heroic'. Although the concept was actually kind of good. I like the short and simple tagline: My name is Khan and I'm not a terrorist.

The story spans from the 9/11 incident right up to Obama's election. No, don't expect any real Obama or Bush to cameo in the movie.

All in all, Shah Rukh did a decent effort on protraying an Aspie. I've never actually seen an Aspie in action before, so, I can't be sure, but his acting is okay, believable which justifies why he is one of the 'heavy-weights' in Bollywood.

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

why?
simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…

Betrayed by the worst atrociously shameful mark of femininity, the shy, embarrassed, immature, self-conscious, awkward, school girl blush in the presence of a drop dead attractive member of the opposite sex. *facepalm* I'm gonna be fricking 21 years old, hormones, please stabilize.


Sang Bayu Membisikkan Rinduku Kepada Samudera Cinta-Nya

Menatap kebiruan
yang disulam hijau permata
hamparan keindahan luar biasa

Mutiara jernih
ibarat sungai yang berlari
membasahi pipi
sekali sekala jatuh ke pasir

bayu dingin yang mengelus
membelai-belai wajahnya yang lesu
muram dek cuaca yang mendung
awan-awan kelabu
membaluti langit yang biru,
suram di lubuk kalbunya

meronta-ronta hatinya
mencari nikmat ketenangan

meronta-ronta jiwanya
mencari kebenaran hakiki

ingin saja disapu
debu-debu penipuan
yang mengaburi pandangan mata hatinya

rindunya pada Kasih yang suci menggamit lagi

ampunilah hamba yang hina ini.
