back from watching 'Quantum of Solace' @ PvR, nice movie, don't know how ppl didn't like it 'n tht too giving reasons for dislike as too much of action! pray how can one have too much of action? 'n how can tht be a cause for dislike? :) :P

neways this post is not abt the movie, while coming out after the show, ard 00:45hrs, saw these policemen patrolling with the guns and immediately wondered for how long? Everytime after some attack one sees all these increased security - checking cars, asking for id's, police patrols...but just after few days as things start settling down, things go back to the way they were before. So all the terrorists have to do is - li'l waitout before launching their next attack for it to be successful.
Even my friends have gotten tired of changing their IM statuses. The general behavior of the ppl residing outside India, was to immediately change their statuses to something abt the attacks. But guess, after so many the novelty has worn off 'n its almost like a daily occurence.

Another thing i wanted to talk abt is this 'refrain from public places' virus. Its funny to see this in action. A colleague of mine from US who has come down to B'lore has been asked not to venture out. :) I call my dad before movie, the usual call, 'n he starts hyper reacting, saying things like lrn to come home before 9:30, its not safe 'n so on...i had no clue why he was saying all these suddenly when he said something like didn't you see what happened in mumbai...'n then i understood the reason behind such behavior...
But somehow seeing these smart ppl falling prey to this illogical fear psychosis makes me sad...thrs more chances of u getting killed in an accident or u can slip on bathroom tiles, hit ur head 'n die...point is u can die newhr, netime! So avoiding public places like malls, that too immediately after attacks doesn't make much sense, as its then when you have maximum security....

well, enough has been said already in better words by much better ppl, 'n also 'm feeling lazy,sleepy & cold!(shd go buy a new blanket), so 'll just end this post
wishing for a more peaceful world

Firstly I really want to know who said there was more action in "Quantum of solace". Action were less and it were very fast that u don't really feel whats happening..

Coming to Hypes and ppl panic, yes its a becoming a regular affair in our life, may be in future u might not hear more of it, as we are getting used to it.. I don't think in Places like Congo ppl really care to tell about attacks happen to them day today life.

Its really sad, still i really can't digest the fact that a police constable with a lathi in hand is trying to catch a terrorist with automatic weapons. Brave attempt.

I also like QoS, the critics of the movie are simply bashing without merit.
It seems that we are becoming insensitive and numb to the terror attacks. Not good for us as a nation.

lol :D
smart people won't fall as prey to illogical things.. as you already claimed these people are smart, then, its not illogical to stop you going outside.. :)
So, better avoid public places..
As you said its true that death can come anywhere, but, it doesn't mean you to go for it.. :)
Serial blasts are more here as you said that patrolling is not effective here and it doesn't stop terrorists to plot more..
So, avoid public places, but, don't stop it if you have something you need to do..
You could have easily got an very good DVD print of that movie and enjoyed it at home..
