Shubh Divali!

My first day off in two weeks and I'm going to make the best of it. That's right, I'm going back to bed.:P Divali, or no Divali, rest is more important to me now than the food and festivity downstairs, so I'm celebrating like we did in college. Bundling up in blankets and watching Lagaan.

I don't often make recommendations because my personal requirements for entertainment are pretty low, just take me away from all this for a while, but if you watch one Bollywood movie in your life, it should be Lagaan. It's right there on youtube in its entirety, with subtitles, if you have four hours to spare.;D Years ago the person who recommended it to me said, "It's about cricket." That's like saying 'Life of Pi' is about a boat trip. It's a wonderful, wrenching underdog story, maybe a little black and white about its heroes and villains, as Bollywood tends to be, but with stellar performances, including the supporting cast, an incredible soundtrack and Aamir Khan without a shirt. Hmm. Excuse me, I have a movie to watch.
