Parkour... Free Running

Can you believe that these are humans who's performing such actions... this would be the feeling you will have when you see traceurs ( the term used for people who are performing parkour ) in action... though its been there for many years, i came to know about it from the movie CASINO ROYALE, in the first chase bond makes to catch hold of a person in Africa.. the way they run, jump, drift, bend, you cant even think they will survive.. but people do that at amazing ease... there are lot of videos available in youtube showing free running and parkour.. both these are different types of performances... they are not categorized as a sport.. just imagine if they get into olympics or any national athletics event.. they will easily walk away with all the medals... recently this was used in a tamil movie "Dham Dhoom" where jayam ravi will run for his life in Russia.. we also need to appreciate the camera work which shows us this excellent action... this is another adrenaline , adventurous , riskier activity for people who want to kiss their death... :-)

Proud of U A R Rahman... Jai Ho

Hurray... this man has proved the world what he is capable of... though it came with the support of the international team which made the film, Rehman has definitely done a brilliant job to prove himself.. the final stage where he can get rewarded is the biggest in the entertainment industry... THE OSCARS... 81st Academy Awards... and Rehman got 2 to his name... and in his speech he mentioned the phrase "Ella pughazhum eraivanuke" in tamil... It was so good to see Rehman who was so humble, simple on stage, the performance he gave on stage in front of the international audience with so much talented people in the industry is mind blowing.. he would have done that many times on a different stage.. but here the most hyped one where he kept his cool and didn't show even a single second of nervousness... you need to be a real professional to be like that and Rehman proved it... Jai Ho Rehman ji.... India is proud of you..
