An aerial view of Kerala's landscape is indeed a heart-warming one. Tiny little islands of green separated by a sparkling wavy threads of water or by black/reddish stretches of roads.
I don't want to mention those teeming blocks of concrete or tiled roofs that're the unmistakeable testimonials of our 'civilian inhabitation'. These specks (when viewed from above) can sometimes be sore spots to an aesthetic eye. Howmuchever beautiful views (elevation, facade and the like) they present us from the 'terra firma'.
These long winding roads and waterways have a close resemblance with the mental make-up of malayalee brethrens. Any guesses? Well, if you think on a different thought plane, you would find many a Keralite's psychological set-up as intriguing, enigmatic and confusingly amusing (if i may say so) like these twisty, twirly roads and waterways.
Do you agree or agree not?

There are some movies that are really inspiring, educative and entertaining. A notable addition to this genre could be "The Pursuit of Happyness".
The movie tells the stsory of Chris Gardner, a self-made millionaire, entrepreneur and philanthropist who through hardwork, perseverence and sheer will surmounted many an acute obstacles to become highly successful in life. The movie based on a best-seller book by the same name, authored by Chris Gardner with Quincy Troupe, is indeed a most inspiring and watchable one. Some scenes are indeed tear-jerkers, like the shot of him making his son sleep at a public lavatory.
Sterling performances by Will Smith as Chris Gardner and Jaden Christopher Syre Smith Gardner's son are the highlights of this movie. One thing I guarantee, the money you spent for this is money most wisely spent, its my word!
