"Sound of Music"

..growing up as a kid i have overheard lot of conversation about this movie by my parents, and decided recently to check what the movie is all about. when people who are least interested in movies and also consider viewing movie as a sin speak good about a movie, you need to check about it, wouldn't you.

Well it is a typical movie that can be watched in a boring saturday afternoon, slow movie, an musical treat to any music lovers. This movie got released in 1965, and the story opens in the backdrop of world war 2 when nazi's are about to capture Austria, and movie revolves around a nun maria,a widower captain, and his seven childrens.

More than the story line or script of the movie, the movie i think got famous only for the songs. there are 2 songs which made me sit up and notice and am sure will impress any person, whether he is interested in music or not."My Favorite Things", "Do-Re-Mi".

My favourite things...maria sings this song when the little children gets afraid or rather terrified with the thunderstorm.the lyrics reminds me of one of a post made by my friend...about what she does when she gets bored.the lyrics of the song goes something like this.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
.
.
.
When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad
...

Do-re-mi.....in this song maria teaches the children on how to sing a song with proper notes.

Let's start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with A-B-C
When you sing you begin with do-re-mi

Do-re-mi, do-re-mi
The first three notes just happen to be
Do-re-mi, do-re-mi
.
.
.
.
Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long, long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow Sew
Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do (oh-oh-oh)


Now to bejing Olympics. A day after making a billion dream come true, Abhinav has this to write, rather than going all gha gha over his achievement, he called for support to all the athletes specially when they are not on top of the game...read more on this below.
