When we hear about or read a story in a book then it depends on the ability of the storyteller how he narrates the story, how he manage to keep the story interesting till the very end. Over the years, stories, characters and their names and addresses vary according to the will of who is telling the story, changes in printed stories can be seen too. Many times we see stories through plays, and they seem more breathtaking than they would have if we had read or heard them. A story narrator cannot show us the characters; we can see them in a play but the actors also have a limit of space and acting.
If you want to see and feel a story, then for that which breaks all the boundaries and goes beyond the imagination, is the cinema. Cinema is the magic where everything is possible; to any extent, in fact there is no limit!

When cinema was mute, it was for all. No matter which country it belonged to, it was World Cinema. But when the characters got a voice, this cinema was divided. Dialogs are depended on language, and language gives you a feeling of being different. But the advanced technology has found a solution to this problem, and the solution is called, "Subtitles".
If you want a movie library in your house then these are one of the best pieces you can add. This a buffet I have set up, and has all the varieties I could get my hands on; choose and enjoy!

India is a country of, "7 vaar - 9 tyohar". These are not meaningless or uncoordinated festivals; no each festival has significance. Gods, grains, fire, forest, river, farm helper animals, changing seasons, Constellations of the transition period, relations that stays even after after-life, dead ancestors, pen-ink bottle, books, every relationship, even crops and weather patterns gets a place as a festival. This is why one festival is named after one God and the other on some other. Karwachaut is for husband, Raksha-Bandhan for brother, Teej for sisters and daughters, Navratri puja for the girls, Ahoi fast for sons. Bachrabas for calves, Govardhan Pooja for animals who assist in agricultural. Festivals for Peepal and such. A festival on every crop sowing and harvesting. Even the different festivals in different regions, tribals who have their own festivals and fairs. Festivals are source of enthusiasm in our life. Those who are weighed down by the burden of life-behavior get the chance to be comfortable and take in little free breath in the festive season.
There is no use of celebrating these festivals with extreme indifference or thinking them as merely ritual festivities; a festival is truly meaningful when we celebrate it by understanding the significance behind its feelings and mystery. The great poet Kalidas had once said - "Utsav priya: maanva".
Human by nature is a festive-lover. The main purpose of festivals is the get-together that fights away the misery.
For Indians the way of living is - festivals; life's philosophy is - festivals. In the Indian Calendar, we have more festivals than the dates. From birth to death, we are always celebrating one or the other festival. Indians love their festivals and always manage to find all possible excuses to 'Celebrate' life.
India's rural culture is very diverse, so there are many festivals. The more we celebrate the festivals close to nature the more we will remain attached to our land. Just as tribal celebrate; hunting or harvesting grain, marriage or childbirth; they all gather around all dressed up and imitate nature. They dance, sometimes like a peacock, a deer or a tiger. We cannot celebrate a festival by staying away from nature, by staying from all those gatherings. We cannot feel the joy of nature. Those little festive traditions of localities and villages; Kua pujan, ghura pujan, jaljhulni gyaras, govardhan pooja, sheetla sampatti, naag panchmi.. Ever since festivals such as these have became rare, our sacrament of believing nature as our mother has almost disappeared. Goverdhan pooja is now only celebrated within the cattlemen and in villages. Our livestock is much neglected today than it had ever been. The growing population and outspoken professionalism have worsened the condition of the animals. People ignore those cows that are dying by the roadside because of eating poly-bags, but they cause uproar when those cows are sliced in slaughterhouses.
Festivals these days no longer hold truthfulness and joy. There is no reality in today's festivals. Now everything has turned into a commercial version. Diwali, the Festival of Lanterns has turned into a festival of colorful glittering lights. One cannot even understand if its festival decorations or a wedding!
That enthusiasm of newly stitched dresses, the homemade cosmetic bath for every festival, hand-made home dishes and sharing those dishes in the neighborhood. Many traditions such as these has almost disappeared. Instead of the crowd that used to play and shout all around on Holi, all we see are bikers speeding up on the raids. It seems as though festivals these days are only celebrated to show off.
Festivals are losing their true color because two reasons.
1) A new trend has started where in festivals such as Diwali, government officials, businesspersons and contractors share sweets-nuts, or other precious gift in from of indirect bribe. These sacred festivals have turned into the day of wrongdoings.
2) Festivals these days seem politicized. Today Muslims and Hindus are hesitant in celebrating each other’s festivals because politicians, vote-grasper and the so-called socialists have crossed a line between the hearts. Whether one has to smash a pitcher on Janmashtami or has to worship Ganesh on Ganeshutsav; instead, festivals of the streets these have turned into something one celebrates at a party or a day when “Leaders” choose to show their political strength in their areas.
Despite all this, even today in the interiors of India and ancient cities, a festival of any religion will remain above politics; everyone celebrates it together and gives other best wishes. At many places, Hindus still make Tajia and Muslims make brocade dresses for hindu gods. The aim of the festival is to share happiness and joy, not to go melancholic. When we are away from the public and nature, only the noise and the need to show off remains, as a result our soul is impaired.
The truth is that we have gotten so busy and business minded that we have turned needy, not observant and enthusiastic.

From Hollywood to Bollywood, from sports to politics in every area are such personalities, who for mysterious reasons says goodbye to the world.
It is dazzling to be famous; one gets introduced to different kinds of people with whom one can spend a great time, but it is also a sad fact that it drags you into the superficial and artificial world. In such a situation, they have two kinds of pressure. They think they can strike a balance, but in reality it does not happen. On one hand they want to hide their private lives because they want to live an ordinary and peaceful life, while on the other side they have to live on their glamorous routine. Consequently they are burdened with the double personalities they have to live and become a victim of the ongoing chaos that has taken over their heart and mind. We look at celebrities from fare away and think that they have everything in the world. We envy their glamorous life. We too want to live a life filled with success, fame, money, opulence and full of amenities, but what we do not even realize is that being a celebrity means being a person who endures more injury on their ego than normal.
Divya Bharti, Priya Raajvansh, Manmohan Desai, Guru Dutt, Silk Smitha, Parveen Babi and there are many more whose death has remained mysterious. Brusli, Natalie Wood, Michael Jackson, Anna Nicole Smith, Marilyn Monroe, Robert Walker, John Kennedy Jr., Elvis Prisle Bilnamon etc. The list is very long, from A to Z there will be a name with every alphabet.
The surprising thing is that most of these died between the age of 19 and 42. Their death was caused by the cocktail of medicines, being found dead in their bathroom or room, excessive drinking or hanging themselves. Often few deaths seem to be part of a conspiracy such as Marlin, Divya Bharati or Lee.
Whether the celebrity faces their death by their own hands or becomes a victim of a conspiracy; the circumstances takes such a turn that their deaths doesn't seem as though it was decided by nature itself. Everything happens in such ways that all that is left are many unanswered questions. More names will keep on adding in the list of those celebrities who face untimely deaths. This is a process that will never hold back, because these rich and successful celebrities who appears so happy from outside are really only scattered in their personal life. To maintain their popularity they cannot even share their problems with anyone. Their own likes and dislikes, no such thing as this is left in their life. They have to mold themselves according to their popularity. Their face goes through so many surgeries, the growing and falling weight, their bodies get addicted to the surgeries they go through again and again because of their frequent injuries.
What is the reason that despite the many achievements, gives nothing but strange deaths to these stars? The reason is the pressure they have to endure in order to remain in news. 95 out of 100 are facing depression; they have insomnia and eat medicines to get hungry, more than one marriage, and extramarital affairs, being indebted in order to keep their splendor intact or not being able to except the fact that someone else has taken their place in audience’s heart; which is why many times these so called stars do not even hesitate before doing weird things. Despite have so much money, huge mansions, an army of servants and the audience holding them up on their heads; these celebs lives with a strange emptiness and fear.
The media makes a person bigger than his personality and surrounds him with false mysteries and glitter.
Super stardom has its privileges; where even strangest and false fixations are bought and sold and an image of an individual is created. This is why their ends are so mysterious.
