Random Musings on 2009

Those who know me personally or through my blog will probably agree with me if I say that it would be an understatement to say that this has been an eventful year for me. Getting married, moving to a different country, quitting my job, learning to cook, learning to do a lot of things for myself. This has also been an almost equally eventful year for a number of close friends who got married or engaged, quit work to get another degree and/or moved to a different city or country.

Five things I did this year that I didn't think I would do quite so soon:

  1. Got married
  2. Moved to the States
  3. Learnt to cook for myself
  4. Quit my job
  5. Spent time pursuing my real interests - reading and writing

Eight movies I watched this year (I watched them this year, some of them are older ones) that I liked a lot more than I expected to:

  1. Barah Aana
  2. Mumbai Meri Jaan
  3. Welcome To Sajjanpur
  4. Aagey Se Right (I'm gradually becoming a big fan of Shreyas Talpade.)
  5. He's Just Not That Into You
  6. Dr Seuss' Horton Hears A Who!
  7. Oh, My God
  8. Avatar

Twenty favourite Bollywood songs from 2009 (roughly in chronological order):

  1. Rehna Tu - Delhi 6
  2. Dil Gira Dafatan - Delhi 6
  3. Genda Phool - Delhi 6
  4. Paayaliya - Dev D
  5. Emosanal Attyachaar - Dev D
  6. Ranaji - Gulaal
  7. Tune Jo Na Kaha - New York
  8. Khudaya Ve - Luck
  9. Ajj Din Chadeya - Love Aaj Kal
  10. Chor Bazaari - Love Aaj Kal
  11. Ore Sawariya - Aladin
  12. Sapne Bhaye Hain - Dekh Bhai Dekh
  13. Pehli Baar Mohobbat - Kaminey
  14. Rabba - Main Aur Mrs Khanna
  15. Meherbaan - Ada (I'm not sure if this counts as a song from 2009, but anyway)
  16. Iktara - Wake Up Sid
  17. Tu Jaane Na - Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani
  18. Mere Paa - Paa
  19. All Izz Well - 3 Idiots (and all the other tracks from the movie too)
  20. Gadbadi Hadbadi - Rocket Singh

Okay, this was a fairly random post. But life is just so - fairly random. Happy New Year everyone!

hny :-)
was surprised to find Gadbadi-Hadbadi instead of Pankhon Ko in the list...

well you know, although Pankhon Ko belongs to a genre that I would normally like better, Gadbadi Hadbadi is a much nicer song for its genre than Pankhon Ko is for its own. Somehow I liked it more.

seems like the term rationalization was created to capture comments exactly like the last one ;-)

If you say so!
