Inception: Why I liked it?

If you want to see, what wonder a good Director can create on well written tight script and bunch of good actors, you must go and watch Inception.
Hearing a lot many good reviews and praises about this new flick, we booked Sunday morning show tickets. Seating with a houseful of audiences, loaded with high expectation, we were a little afraid or better say, skeptical about the movie. For most of the highly praised movies, distaste has been a general phenomenon for we people.

Inception ~ Experience the Maya

So, the movie started with a strange Leonardo presented to an old man, who had seen the totem in his half-dream and have been waiting

for this young man to kill himself. Here starts the series of dreams woven so extensively into and within each-other that you won’t be able to realize when you got so much involved in the movie. The movie let’s one drive through mazes, and provides an opportunity to think beyond what is real and what is dream. The more you get involve, the more your thoughts become spiritual in nature.
Leonardo's Totem
It would be killing the fun, if I tell the story. The real thing is what one can experience oneself, provided if there is anything real. J

Diving in to the thoughts provoked by the movie, at a point I was wondering is it not what Krishna described as Maya. What he said that nothing is real, but the Maya. The conflict of Reality and Maya is very well depicted through the Real World and Dream conflict. The way the concept of dream extraction and further dream-implantation or inception is materialized in the movie is sheer brilliance of the script and direction. Doesn't Krishna describes himself as the one who sows the seed into the Prakriti or Nature that gives birth to life, the self and the intellect! We are actually the projections of The Almighty’s Dream and living in an Unreal World or Maya as designed by Him. And when we start creating or own projections in this Maya/Imagination of God, there starts the conflict, between the Creator and Creature, the Nature and the Human, so on so forth.... The more I think, the more I get involved. Go and get involved thyself. This is the best way to appraise the beauty. About my take on Maya, a more direct approach would be better' so next time...
Inception ~  Me
For me, Inception is the Best movie I have seen since Matrix I. It’s one movie one must go and watch, not for Stars it had earned in reviews but because if you won’t, you won’t even realize what you have missed.

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill.

Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle, that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill. I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’s a Bus…

A Day at Global Vipassana Pagoda (A Photo Story)

What I like most about the cities we live in is the places we generally not aware about. Like the case of one of its own kind Butterfly Park of Thane, which is at stone throw distance from my place and I came to knew about it a few months back only. Then there is this Pagoda – another one of its own kind – world renowned and still not known to many city dwellers. We visited this place to take pictures and let me confirm it, we were stoned by the colors and the mystical sky (check out the Photo Story at the bottom of the post)
Located at Northern most corner of the Megacity of Mumbai, across the Gorai creek, Global Vipassana Pagoda is a meditation hall built out of gratitude to the Buddha, his teaching and the community of monks practicing his teaching (Wikipedia).  The Pagoda is also known for being built on the world's largest stone dome without any supporting pillars, at height of ~29 metres and external diameter 94.82-97.46 m. It is, thus, twice the size of the Gol Gumbaz Dome in…

Trekking Naneghat in Monsoon

Naneghat has been like an annual pilgrimage for me. So, when I planned for the ride and trek this year, I was sure I wouldn’t be blogging about it. But the way it turned out to be – I couldn’t resist jotting it down and share. On just a few days’ notice three Decide&RideTM Bullet guys agreed for the ride and trek along with a colleague and my roommate. Plan was simple - Ride/ Food/ Trek/ Food/ Trek down/ Food/ Ride back. Itinerary included Heavy to moderate Rain and Fatigue with Directions, misdirection, lot of fresh pahadi water, scenery and slips. We started it at around 6 AM morning. It was raining since last evening, and when we started it was still raining. Josh took Ashutosh as pillion and Abhishek hoped on to my pillion seat, Sandy was to join us at Kalyan naka with Monty – who found his bull not ready for ride and had to cancel it (though he rushed and did power-trek to meet us at top later). Anyways, it was still raining when we met at Kalyan naka and left for Naneghat.
Nane…
