Susanna’s Seven Husbands & 7 Khoon Maaf – The Connect

Susanna's Seven Husbands

It is interesting to go through a novella form of a short story you had visited as a child.

While Ruskin Bond weaves his patent magic of making the most mundane things spark to life, the story is so named because of a very important reason.

I haven’t seen the movie myself, but have read the original script (also included in the paperback available in bookstores now). However, I have come across a lot of discussion on who the seventh husband was and who was the seventh one she murdered – and the like.

It would be interesting to note that Ruskin Bond never suggests the concept of seven murders – either in the title of the novella or anywhere within. What simply remains is a subtle yet clear indication towards the end of the original story – precisely pointing out all the seven husbands.

However, the film-makers chose to toy with the idea of extrapolating what happens in the end. And yes, they did clearly suggest seven murders (not necessarily husbands, but as it turned out – and also the very words of the script, all seven murders were indeed of husbands). But as in the original story, so in the script, the concept of the seventh murder & husband is again very prominently conveyed – not quite needing you to be a Nolan to move out of the theatre with your head held high, knowing the secret of the universe. It’s there for everyone to see and absorb.

As for me, I loved the novella and well, the script was pretty well extrapolated too.

The bottomline – This is a treat for all Ruskin Bond fans out there. Go for it! :-)

The need for the right aids towards AIDS

I remember reading in my school books how mankind was helpless with no cure for the condition caused by AIDS. Today, as we find people and celebrities, alike, falling prey to one fatal disease after another – well, I present here some text towards the big one – AIDS.

With all the AIDS-awareness drives worldwide notwithstanding and the clinically proven effectiveness of the antiretroviral drugs, Dr. Boyd Graves chose to differ.

If one were to go by his findings and recommendations, AIDS would eventually be proved to have been synthetically manufactured with suggested intentions of bringing down the third world population. AIDS, as per his research, has its roots in the United States of America’s The Virus Cancer Program which synthetically produced the HIV in its laboratories. The validity of such claims can always be contested and often dismissed as conspiracy theories but the fact remains that if such apparently biological warfare has actually been resorted to by supposedly responsible governments (not to be confused with these as reported here), perhaps it wouldn’t be out of context to mention here that they also (in black & white) harbour the cure in their backyards.

At the end of the day – I leave it to the Almighty to preside over.

Back To The Future :: Microsoft Office

Apple & Microsoft (not necessarily in that order!) undoubtedly have some of the best brains working in their innovation labs. It is therefore no wonder that when they go ahead and toss up concepts and perceptions of how the future of computing would be like – it is often unbelievably awesome..!!

Microsoft Office Labs showcase their prophecies in this short-n-slick clip.

And It Played On.. Man Tu Talbat… Tu Man Talbat…!

 

Tere Bina, Jee Na Paaun, Sang Tere Jee Na Paaun
Hoke Juda Ab Hum Milein, Ab Na Kabhi Hongey Judaa
Ab Kyaa Kahun Iske Siva;
Man Tu Talbat, Tu Man Talbat (2)
Vey Nakh Inti (2), Ye Noor Al Kahein, Be Nakh Inti
Teb Li Haya Dhi, Takh Li Un Yunhi, Ukhne Vele Geynvhi, Vifte Ki…
Ab Kyaa Kahun Iske Siva;
Man Tu Talbat, Tu Man Talbat (2)
Tere Bina, Jee Na Paaun; Sang Tere Jee Na Paaun (2)

Hoke Juda Ab Hum Milein, Ab Na Kabhi Hongey Judaa
Ab Kyaa Kahun Iske Siva;
Man Tu Talbat, Tu Man Talbat (4)

Ab Mil Gaye Lo Fir Se Hum, Subahon Ne Fir Choomein Kadam
Kudrat Ne Haathon Se Likhey, Khud Rishtey Ye Janmo Janam[2]
Mil Kar Rahengey Hum Yun Sadaa;
Man Tu Talbat, Tu Man Talbat (2)

[Oh My Love, I Have The Key In Love, I Will Be There For You, Always Be There For You]

Vey Nakh Inti (2), Ye Noor Al Kahein, Be Nakh Inti
Teb Li Haya Dhi, Takh Li Un Yunhi, Ukhne Vele Geynvhi, Vifte Ki…
Dil Ke Waraq Pe Hai Likha, Har Lafz Tere Pyaar Ka
Ye Waqt Ne Hai Chaha Bhahut, Lekin Na Fir Bhi Mit Saka
Har Lamha Ye Kehne Lagaa;
Man Tu Talbat, Tu Man Talbat (4)
