raya holidays...

i had 2 days off for raya. ended up resting at home watching movies on tv. one particular movie touched me. finally i had the chance to watch "Taare Zameen Par" (Stars on Earth) on Zee. wat a remarkable movie ! hats off to aamir and everyone involved in making the movie.

TZP being an impressive debut by aamir tells the story of eight year old Ishaan who suffers dyslexia and how a wonderful teacher saves him ... a beautifully scripted movie with compatible cinematograhy and showcased a brilliant performance by the young Darsheel Safary (playing Ishaan). I read today that TZP has been selected as India's official entry to the Oscars this year in the best foreign film category. Well deserved indeed. I wish that more movies as such will be made in coming years... quality movies with great storyline..

Loved tis painting of Ishaan by his teacher Ram Shanker Nikumbh...Every child is special
