It’s the end of this month and, just like the past two months, this one was nothing different. Some days were harder than others but we tried our best to stay safe and maintain our cool at home. For me, this was a busier month, with online lectures, binge watching and updating my new blog. I must say it has been way too interesting to find my own way and explore the journey. There are a few other things that caught my interest lately and left me thinking, and added to my joy. I’m calling them my May favorites and sharing them with you all!
Watching ‘The Impossible’
I came across this movie ‘The Impossible’ last week on Netflix and it totally bowled me over. Directed by J.A Bayona, it is a true story of an American family that travels to Thailand to celebrate Christmas. Unfortunately, Tsunami hits the country turning their luxurious holiday into a nightmare and separating the entire family. The best thing I liked about the movie is that the way the little boy (Lucas) helps his badly-injured mother in difficult times and enables her to move to a hospital when she is in desperate need of help. If you are a film lover, you should definitely watch it.
Experimenting with my culinary skills
Another thing that I truly enjoyed was helping my mum in making the Fruit Cream Dessert. Honestly it was her idea to try something out of the leftover cream in the freezer. Yeah, it was very simple to make and turned out really delicious. I recommend all of you to try it soon (psssst… I downloaded the recipe off YouTube). All you have to do is beat the leftover cream well, blend it with sugar and chill it. Serve it with chopped fruits. You can also add a scoop of your fav ice-cream to the bowl (I added strawberry ice-cream). You may also add a dash of dried fruits to make it healthier.
Attending a national Symposia Webinar on “Tribes in India and Interpretation of those tribes in Indian Cinema”
So, here’s my third favourite of the month. The national webinar on the local tribes of India and how Indian cinema showcases them, was conducted on Zoom by a Mumbai college for film students. And being a media and film student, I registered myself out of curiosity. The webinar was truly an experience and I’m sure all other students would have enjoyed it too. The icing on the cake was, I was even awarded a certificate of participation! It was an eye-opener and boosted my confidence.
