Laughter, teasing, and when that young niece and nephew discuss vintage hindi films from the sixties and the latest music do you realize how time has sped by. A loved elder’s birthday, celebrations, family ties, everyone talking at the same time, an unspoken thought like the music in the air, next year who knows. Sunday evening, bits of Om shanti om with the remote on standby you realize even a standard, run of the mill story can be given a super treatment, that is art.

in some odd way, i find myself linked to your life... younger family members talking of things as old i remember as new...you still have your loved elders, and i sit and read of birthdays and celebrations and whisper "many more" with tears thinking of my own now gone beloved elder. how strange, is it not?

give them my many more, please, with the well wishes from a strange lady in a strange land.

i liked OSO for the fun element that it had. Yup, I see my niece and nephews and many more kids growing up so fast and sometimes really wonder, am I so old?
