How did I spend my weekend in Bangalore after a long time?
On Saturday morning I watched the movie Irattakkuttikalute Acchan on television. After that I decided to go to Majestic just like that. First I went to office, checked my mails, and then went to the bus stop. There were lot of beautiful girls waiting for the bus, so I stood there for almost one hour before taking the bus to Majestic.
There is a verb in place in Malayalam language for this process, called "Vay Nokkuka" ('y' is silent in some regions). Introduction of a word to the language was probably necessitated by the life styles of the people who use the language.
I had a fried rice from Kamat restaurant. The work of underground way in front of the bus stand has been completed, it looks like. I just roamed around, and then went to MG Road. Visited Premier book shop, and bought two books: "Balika Badhu", a collection of Bengali short stories, and collected short fiction works of Jibanananda Das (I have been looking for this book for a long time).
Back home, I watched the movie Rajavinte Makan on television. I had seen this movie almost 15 years back, when it was screened in our school. Mohanlal's character "Vincent Gomas" in this movie is the great grandfather of all the characters of Ravana Prabhu, Praja etc. "Rajavinte Makan" was a classic among this genre of Malayalam movies (like Deewar was among the Hindi movies about underworld), and it is still watchable. But recent movies are almost intolerable.
On Sunday, I setup my kitchen again. I had to clean up the things as I hadn't used it for last three months.
I went to Symphony theatre at 12. Lavakumar and Sridhar came soon, and we went to Galaxy theatre and watched Behind Enemy Lines. After that we had lunch from Amaravati restaurant. Lavakumar told he got a permanent transfer to Bangalore.
I was back home at 4. I completed reading the novel "Janaranya" by Shankar, translated to Malayalam by Ravi Varma. It is about Unemployment. An excellent novel.
