Happy Wednesday! Such an odd shortened week, I almost forgot about this post because I kept thinking it was Tuesday.
Reading: I finally got the Lois Bujold books that datablue recommended from the library, yaaaay! I am very excited to start them.
Watching: I saw Hamilton last night, thanks to the generosity of my mother. We had balcony seats and mutually agreed that, at least in this particular theater, the balcony seats are far better than floor. Also, I got distracted the whole time thinking about Fiorello! and 1776. I’m probably just short-sighted and sentimental, but I think I like 1776 better. And maybe Fiorello! best of all.
Thinking: Will there be air conditioning at work today? There wasn’t yesterday, and then it was sort of fixed but not really. We are in this very modern circa 1960 office building, that doesn’t have windows that open.
Now, question for you! Inspired by my seeing Hamilton, and Paltan coming out. What story from Indian history do you really want to see onscreen that hasn’t been told before?
I know it will never happen, but boy do I want to see a Nehru-Lady Mountbatten love story onscreen! It could be handled very delicately, supposedly he inspired her to be a better woman, to dedicate herself to good works. And she got him to laugh.
Oh, and I would also LOVE to see the Tata family in a movie. Any generation, I don’t care, they are all cinematic from the young orphan boy adopted and inheriting millions to the late in life passionate second marriage with the Swiss tourist.
