Man vs. Woman - The Beginning of Another Argument

Numerable movies have been made on love relationships but only a few of them are known to capture the darker shades of the male-female tiff. What seems to be a heavenly journey, marriages can sometimes result in a disaster, so much so that the couple may not really wish to see each other's faces. One such movie is Pyaar Ka Punchnama. Frankly speaking, it was one of the most entertaining movies I have seen in the recent past (that is, if love is entertaining). Indeed, this movie correctly conducts a post mortem of love relationships (you see, 'punchnama' when translated in English means post mortem). No, it is not true that I am pro men nor am I anti-women, but this movie was very much valid, when viewed in context of the present day scenarios. It is very difficult to understand women, who can very easily manage to be a pain in the ass, but the problem does not lie in what a women thinks but it lies in how should a man imply what a woman has thought.

Women are good in arguments. For a man to win an argument with a woman is almost like putting the toothpaste back in an already empty toothpaste tube. Someone has rightly said, "Women get the last word in every argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument." Pyaar ka Punchnama, very beautifully and very correctly, shows the worst fights that could happen between a couple in love (or so called, love). Though I am a woman and it would hurt my ego if I agree but women somehow are quite capable of picking up an argument from something as minuscule as an atom. And don't ever challenge their memory; they remember events that happened years ago and would somehow, much to the astonishment of men, find a link between the past and the present, or even future for that matter.

The men would definitely agree and women would agree too, but would not admit it. And if you don't agree, you must watch this video.

If you still have not seen this movie, I am sure you'll enjoy the light-hearted comedy. It is a must watch for this season.

If life had been longer

Was it the heat of the intolerable summers
or was it my own irritation
that my mind, not for a second could concentrate
on the vast data bank that lay open in excel format
I sat down to count the number of days
those, which had made my life feel special
To my astonishment, I couldn't count more than 10
In these 25 years of my life,
About 9000 days have been wasted away
Alas, I could easily count the special days on my fingers
Life is short, is what I get to hear
A thought that probably makes the whole world shudder
I wonder, what would happen, if at all it had been longer
Without a doubt, there would be more moments of sorrow, agony and pain
all of which would go on like they were a sloth
Indeed, there would be happy moments too
but a little scantier than the ones that are gloomy and blue
Least in number would be the special ones
That not only had to power to make one smile
but could also bring tears to joy to the pearl like eyes
The mantra is not to live each day as it comes
but it is to live each day like there would be no tomorrow
Life is short, I wouldn't say that it is not true
But to make it longer,
"Live every moment
Laugh every day
Love beyond words"
This world would become a better place to live in
