I can distinctly recall growing up watching The World This Week, which was a weekly affair. Only because of this news programme that we were allowed to watch TV on Friday nights. Prannoy Roy looking dashing with his trademark beard surely was very impressive. In those old Doordarshan days, the news bulletin was surely a great relief. As time passed NDTV has expanded and is now a network. As NDTV(New Delhi Television) turned 20 today and they have put up a small capsule on their site here which recounts their journey. Watch out for Prannoy Roy who talks passionately about their humble beginning and especially the part where he talks about his wife, Radhika Roy, the real brain behind the channel.
NDTV scores a cut above the rest with their Clarity, audio, video coverage and delivery. The whole package is very pleasingly acceptable. This is one team which has not let me down in so many years!
Somewhere there’s someone who dreams of your smile,
And finds in your presence that life is worth while.
So when you are lonely, remember it’s true
Somebody somewhere is thinking of you.
When I lay and think, in my bed at night,
The day you’ll arrive, seems nowhere in sight.
I toss and I turn, dreaming of you,
Opening my eyes… checking if my dream came true.
It didn’t, again, and a tear starts to roll,
Weeping quietly… my pillow I hold.
Today before you say unkind word – Think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food – Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife – Think of someone who’s crying out to GOD for a companion.
Today before you complain about life – Think of someone who died too early on this earth.
Before you complain about your children – Think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn’t clean or sweep – Think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive – Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job – Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another – Remember that not one of us is without sin.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – Put a smile on your face and think: you’re alive and still around.

Ghajini is an adaptation of Memento, the critically acclaimed film by Christopher Nolan. The protagonist of the movie suffers from anterograde amnesia or short term memory loss and seeks revenge for his wife’s murder. Ghajini features Aamir Khan, Asin Thottumkal and Jiah Khan in lead roles. A. R. Rahman has scored the music for the film.
There has been lots of talks regarding the looks – near-bald crew cut with conspicuous scars – Aamir had got for the movie. The actor will be showing off his eight-packs in the film, which has become a tad bit boring now. There is whole lot of buzz regarding the release of Ghajini. The movie is slated to release worldwide on December 26, 2008.
