Merry Christmas :-)

My maternal grandfather, who is, err, a great 'devotee', on Christmas Day.
My father and I in a taxi on Christmas Day.

My grandfather and I at a Chinese restaurant in Kolkata, where we had lunch that day.

My grandmother with my parents at the same venue.
My grandparents and parents at City Centre on that day where we watched the new Bengali movie of the famous Feluda series by Satyajit Ray, "Tintorettor Jishu"(Tintoretto's Jesus).

I LOVE the pictures. They are amazing. Especially the first one. Otar irony ta...massive.
That will be my new wall paper. Thank you!

How was the movie? The book is great except for the plagiarism thing that Ray does in the end from Doyle's work.

I need to comment again.

Missing you folks so much, especially after the photos. Wish I could be there right now.

So you have celebrated Christmas! I like the way people in India mix with the different religions. As far as I have learned: instead of stubbornly holding on to one religion they just take pieces of each! Quite relaxed.
I was not sure whether Christmas was celebrated in India, whether it is an official free day there, and so on. But it seems that it doesn’t go by unnoticed in India too.
I had quiet, peaceful days. OK, apart from the first half of the first day, where my husband and I had to clean the house! We have been on a skiing vacation; and clearing the vacation-stuff, putting up a Christmas tree, decorating the house, doing the Christmas shopping, cleaning the house, *and* go working was a bit too much for one week!
Now on to the year-changing. Have nice days you all!

Chinese restaurants are the best, aren't they?
I didn't like the movie. Did you?

What should I call you, Shinjini or Sinjini? You can call me Raj, Raj-Da or Raj-Uncle. At 27 I am quite fit to become an Uncle I guess. Well, I came across you blog through the Feedjit widget that you have put on your blog. You know what is the best thing I liked about your blog? Truthfulness. You are not afraid in saying the truth. Hope you remain like this even when you grow up. I am a Blogger too, although I started much after you did. Hope you would find time to check out my blog someday and leave a carefully crafted comment there. And although you are much more experienced in blogging that myself, ever you need any help you can get in touch. Wish you and your family a very happy new year (belated). Hope to hear from you soon, till then keep smiling :)

May you have a great year ahead.

I'm glad you liked the pictures and the movie was great.Though I had liked the previous movie(Kailashe Kelenkari)more, this one is also very engaging.

Didaike ota bola hoye gechhe. Aar Mammamke jeans porrte raji korata ekta bishal kaj. Koto kichhu je bolte hoy! Oi ekdin porlo, abar kobe porbe tar thik nei. Regular aar kothay porchhe? Aar tumi jodi ekhane thakte, taholete to amra 'Mauja hi Mauja' gaitam.:-D

People in India don't celebrate Christmas for religious reasons. Its just another holiday for them which gets all the more special because of the pleasant weather. Moreover, it brings the excitement of New Year with it. So, the reasons for celebrating are entirely different.:-)

I'm glad that you enjoyed the week. Happy New Year!

The movie was excellent though I think the previous one was better.:-) The villain actually was better.

Hey, why did you change your profile name? The previous one was nice and unique.
The movie was really good though I somehow think that the previous one was better.:-)

Of course, I am very fond of Chinese food.:-)
But, I liked the movie, you know. The previous one was better though. In this movie, I didn't like two things. The first one is the villain's performance and the second one is the way Feluda escapes from Somani's goons in Hong Kong after being kidnapped. In the book, that was much more interesting.

I don't suppose I should call you Raj Kaku. You're not that old.:-)
And, you must of course call me Shinjini though the spelling says soemthing different.

I am so glad you liked my blog and I will surely visit your blog and leave my comment there.
Welcome to my blog and a very Happy New Year to you and your family too.:-)

Happy New Year to you too.:-)
Yeah, I enjoyed the festive season a lot and hope you enjoyed it too.
