SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

 



HOW TO REACH A GOAL?


Eighteen year old Jamal Malik is having an amazing answering streak on the Indian version of the television game show, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire". He's only one correct question away from the big prize. However, some, including those associated with the game show, question how someone like Jamal, a self confessed non-genius who grew up in the slums of Mumbai, can be doing so well on the show when others who are brighter, more educated and wealthier than him have failed. Is Jamal cheating? Is it purely luck that they have asked him the questions to which he knows the answers?

Slumdog millionaire didn't show the BAD or NEGATIVE India. It showed a REAL PART of India.
Yes, India has many beautiful and clean places that should be seen like religious mountains and temples or tourist attractions.

It is a movie which was nominated for ten 2008 Academy awards
and won eight...

- TREVI FOUNTAIN -




You will not found any other place in the world that celebrates the ever mutating and incredible power of water like Rome. The Trevi Fountain is a fantastic work of art that is much more than a mere sculpture. This triumphant example of Baroque art with its soft, natural lines and fantasy creatures embodies movement as the soul of the world. The fountain is a true wonder, a jewel of water and stone that is nestled between the palaces of the historic center of city

This work of art is so famous that even cinema has commemorated it on more than one occasion. Everyone remembers the scene in the renowned Italian film  "La Dolce Vita"  by Fellini. On a quiet night in an almost unreal Rome, an alluring Anita Ekberg jumps into the Trevi Fountain with her clothes...

A 31-year old man was recently fined for swimming in the Trevi Fountain . If he was attempting a reproduction of Anita Ekberg  in the famous scene, he probably missed the mark.
The man entered the water, before enacting a swimming race and then dived into the larger pool at the foot of the fountain.
A few years ago, entering the water got you a 15.000 lire fine which equates to about 300 euros today.

BE MY VALENTINE



 
Is it really love?



or is it just a passing feeling
am I not convinced?
a bit uncertain of the feeling

Is it the way you make me feel?
so warm with joy and laughter
or could it be the happiness
from moments spent together

The lasting bliss, the kiss I miss,
The sweetest thoughts without a touch
The heart that hurts and bears a scar
thinking how far away you are

You're on my mind most of the day
And at night I go to bed and pray
An angel soft and gentle as you
Would make my sweetest dreams come true

Thinking about you alone or in mass
Writing your name on my bathroom window glass
Wishing you were here
To love hold and care
Wishing I had you with me
To cherish and to stare

Into your soft and beautiful eyes
As we both travel to the skies
And mingle with the stars above

But is it really love?
