OMG, this show looks like such trashy fun. Even if (I’m guessing) Shahrukh will appear for 30 seconds with no dialogue and Gauri will appear for 5 minutes in one episode and never again.Continue reading
This movie is super fun and surprising, you will really enjoy watching it without knowing what is going to happen. So just relax and know it is generally a happy ending, watch the movie, then come back her to discuss it AFTER you have seen it.Continue reading
Yaaaaay! A good happy movie! If you want a film that is satisfyingly well-made, and has a nice happy love and kindness message, you should watch this! I was very worried, because it is the kind of film that can suddenly turn dark and angry without warning (like, Super Deluxe). But no! I can report that it stays in the zone of “the world is ultimately just and people care for each other”.Continue reading

I wrote this post, I don’t know, 4 months ago? 5 months ago? Anyway, it’s interesting to look at and think about how Kamala fits into the history and both is and is not recognized by the Indian American community (I am fascinated that I have seen nothing from the Indian movie stars I follow on social media about her).Continue reading
My Mother just showed me the poem she has been holding on to, planning to post on the door of our building once the election was over. It’s by an American, E. Ethelbert Miller, and it was published in 1994. Presumably written in 1992 after the election of Clinton.
the day after the national election
the sky cleared and the sun found its guitar.
i ran to the plaza and soon discovered myself
dancing in the middle of a jubilant crowd.
a nation of song, a nation of thousands pushing
like the sea to the cathedral. i found my place
among the living, the dead, the ghosts, the children
waiting to be born. something more powerful than
victory was in the air. i could breathe again.
my prison door was open. my country was outside.
she had been waiting for me.
Well, America has tentative good news today! I’ve learned not to count on anything over the past 4 years, but I am going to try to let myself be happy. And part of that is sharing my happiness with all of you!Continue reading
