The Thirteen Days

Monday, August 29, 2005

Today, we had a session called Non Classroom Learning held by Dr. Uma Narain who is AaFullbright fellow at the NY Univ, a Fullbright-Tata awardee at Omaha, Nebraska. She has also lectured at universities abroad and participanted in number of international programs.

She beleives in not teaching theories but in learning from watching. So what did we do in her lecture, we saw a movie ... yea a movie .... It was fun sitting with all my classmates ( all 65 of us ) it became a mini theater and your's truly was asked to man the projector ( the laptop ).

You may say, ok cut the crap and tell me which movie you guys saw? Ok, without digressing further we saw a movie called " The Thirteen Days " ... no it is not like the Anil Kapoor starrer ' Woh Saath Din '. I am too lazy and short of time to give you a synopsis, you can read the synopsis, reviews and ratings here.

It is an excellent movie and I have got a copy of it and I will watch it many times, many not with the analytical bent of mind that I saw the movie for the first time. I always wondered why JFK was so popular, what was that quality in him that made him America's most popular president and crowned the Kennedy's as the First political family of the US of A. This movie was awe inspiring. I mean you have 13 days remaining for you to decide what you want to do and how to abort the prospects of World War III ( read the synopsis, dont be too lazy :p )

It's a movie any person who is interested in knowing how to deal with people. I mean tell me what would you do when most of your advisors suggest you to go to war, but u believe that you should give peace a chance.

I am not going to break the suspense go and watch the movie, trust me you will love it!
