Exodus - Gods and Kings : An awful movie, but a visual wonder

Ridley Scott, the director of Gladiator, one of the movie in everyone's favourite list. Exodus:Gods and Kings is the latest movie from him.

The film is so strong in visual department featuring total Egypt set located at Spain. 3D experience was quite good in the scenes of plagues created by God against Egyptians.

It was poor casting which spoiled the movie and the character building was pathetic. Aaron Paul (that Yo guy from Breaking Bad and Marshal in Need for Speed) and the Batman fame, Christian Bale.

I did watch this film in Ratnamahal, Ongole. I didn't expect such a 3D movie experience. It was overwhelming for me in the first few minutes for the 3D visuals and expected an epic film. But in the end it was very disappointing. The movie dragged with stunning visuals and pathetic script work. There was no emotional attachment to the characters. The movie was concentrated on the visual side forgetting the story side.

After coming out from the theatre and searched for what was happened in the movie on internet. And came to understand the movie title that meaning of Exodus is 'going out'. The Moses (Bale) lead the Hebrews who were working as slaves under the Egyptians across the red sea.

Moses trained the Hebrews to fight against Egyptians when he was sent by the God. The training sequences were good to watch.

India - Democracy - Bureaucracy

India a nation with strong Democracy. There has been a well-established democracy in India. This democracy is responsible for the happy and free-living of people in India. Now you people may get a doubt, what has happened to our democracy now. And what is the reason why I’m revolving around the term repeatedly? These would be answered automatically if you go through this article. One of the reasons why India fought for the freedom is to achieve democracy and to end bureaucracy. Before Independence India was run by bureaucrats. And the apex house sitting in Britain would make laws and rules based on the feedback and reports given by the bureaucrats administering India. Due to this Indians suffered a lot and there raised the zeal for self-rule. Moreover, the reports of bureaucrats would always be favoring the interests of Britain and they never bothered about the common people. So to represent the problems faced by the common man and also to solve them we adopted democracy after Indepe…

There is no less of innovation in the young minds of India. To encourage that innovation, AIM (Atal Innovation Mission) has been set up under the NITI Ayog wing. And Atal Tinkering Labs are spread across the country to enable the innovation in the students. After many rounds, top 30 Ideas have been listed here.

Out of these 30 best ideas, a few caught my senses strongly.
Recycling wastewater from automobile garages We often give a water service for our bike/car monthly or weekly. We tend to saw how our vehicle got a new look after servicing. But, the students of  "Jnana Prabodhini Navnagar Vidyala, Nigdi, Pune, Maharashtra" thought something else. They are interested in the wastewater which can be recycled. What an Idea sir ji!
Smart Tap Just like how there is a measurement for electricity, mobile data that we are consuming, there will be a smart tap that measures water coming through that tap. The best part is that the tap also purifies the water. This idea came from the st…

God - God Men - Hinduism

God - God Men ------ The title looks something odd. But there is a lot to think about it. Let me begin the article by putting some questions that are lingering in my mind for many years. Question: 1 Whether the existence of GOD has been discussed in Hinduism? If discussed, by whom it was done? And whether the discussion is carried forward in a sensible manner? Question :2 Whether the GOD mentioned in the age-old books of Hindus personified? Question :3 Is the essence of Hinduism wrongly propagated? If yes why? And by whom? If not, the reasons thereof for the present scenario. Question: 4 What does the entity God Men? And where does it come from? Question: 5 Is the varnas mentioned in the great books were correctly carried out and interpreted? “Ohh……! hey please stop it.” ------- you may exclaim in boredom and distress. Though these are irrelevant to present way of life, there may be some questions often attack our mind as I have experienced. Situations may be relevant or not, the present generati…
