I still remember that I was still in primary school when Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi movie was shown in the local cinemas but we did not have the chance to watch it in the local cinemas.

Anything to do with religion, morality, belief and God
I trust in every religion or society, there always been some form of guardian angels or warriors who will either looks after you personally, family or even a specific village and so on.
When I was in Cambodia on a work assignment, one of the things I did after I came back to the hotel and had my dinner is to watch an old Tamil serial titled “Marmadesam Vidaathu Karuppu” which has a few interesting subplots. Image source: Kavithalayaa

Being locked up in the house due to the lock down since 18th March 2020 except for that few occasions when I venture out to buy the essential groceries, on my free time when I am not working or tied up with house chores, I found myself on the watching university debates, technical speeches, watching 1950s & 1960s movies, attending virtual concerts (like this gem), learning CSS & tweaking my blog site (noticed the changes?), cracking my mind for the next blog posts and rediscovering my love for chess (now that my daughter is picking up the game, she is looking for stronger opponents).
