The Tashkent Files

2019 Hindi movie who killed Shastri

The Tashkent Files

The Tashkent Files, a movie that was highly panned by the critics just got my attention. It is a style that is fresh, pacy and intriguing all once. Although this movie does not offer a definitive answer to the question ‘Who killed Shastri?’, it does manage to raise valid questions and canvases our right to know about this casually forgotten moment in history, as a citizen of india. The callous attitude shown by the then government in not diligently investigating into the mysterious demise of India’s 2nd prime minister seems vile.

The debate scenes in the movie do take you back to the English classic, 12 Angry Men. That said, these scenes stand their own and offer a quaint perspective about every character in the debate in the midst of an enquiry about Shastri’s death. Must say, the content is well researched and is sure to raise a few eyebrows on viewing. This movie had some powerful dialogues and moments that is sure to push you towards finding out what happened and why.

Went to watch it with my mom, expecting it to be drab but, was pleasantly proved wrong. It is indeed appalling to know how India’s 2nd prime minister just faded into oblivion. I, as a child had tons of pages to study about Gandhi, nehru, the ahimsa movement, the freedom struggle but, just had a line or 2 about Shastri. A pity that Shastri, who was instrumental in putting india on road to recovery, post independence, is forgotten in the pages of Indian History.

Watch the movie with an open mind. A real gem in the midst of movies like SOTY 2 and Kalank. Movies like The Tashkent Files, struggle to stand their own against the movies backed by huge production houses that hijack movie screens. Do grab the opportunity to watch, before the Tashkent Files is pulled out of the theatres. Kudos to Vivek Agnihotri’s effort in bringing this taboo topic to the young generation. My daughter is as intrigued as in am.

A Simple Art Studio Set Up Anyone Can Do

Someday I’d love to have my own studio. And you’ve shown me how to go about setting it up. Thank you!

Second Sight Journey

Whether you work from home, or you have a studio separate from your house, it’s so important to have your own space to be creative.

When setting up your studio, ESPECIALLY if it’s in your home, set it up so that what you need to protect from your paint mess is protected.

If you have to worry about getting paint on furniture or walls, it inhibits your creativity. I want to get completely lost in my work, and I can’t do that if I’m nervous about ruining something important.

It might be Dexter’s kill-room, or my studio with shower curtains hung up to protect the walls.

EvesImagination on Etsy…a magical Mother & Toddler duo

Not tonight, I'm Etsying

I would like to introduce EvesImagination…a magical mother and toddler duo.  Eve, an imaginative two year old, uses an ink pen and sketches whatever drawing she’s inspired to create.  After Eve’s ink creation is complete, her mother uses her daughter’s ink lines as a template to craft a unique piece of artwork.  Using watercolors she transforms the ink template into a colorful imaginative painting.  This mother and toddler artistic duo gave rise to EvesImagination on Etsy- a shop created to share their creations and offer the original watercolor paintings for purchase.  The painting featured here is one of my favorites. Titled Elephant King- I love how Ruth used Eve’s lines to create the body of the elephant and then ingeniously paint the Elephants trunk and husks. I love the fact that Ruth can share her artistic talent with her daughter and encourage Eve’s imagination to run free.

Dear nature, bright & sweet,

Do you hear my heart beat?

Gleaming fields,

Happiness do yield,

With a glance

At every bloom

At every plume

At every blade

Joy and bliss

Just does not fade!
