Tibet in Song

Ngawang Choephel's debute "Tibet in Song" documentary film deserves accolade from film critics and particularly from Tibetan and Tibetan supporters.  On Thanksgiving Day, my buddy and I went to watch the movie on its  final day screening in the Washington D.C . When we reached the cinema hall , only a scattered audience was sitting in the theater. My purpose for going to watch the movie is simply out of curiosity and also to lend my  support to the few  Tibetan artists and filmmakers, who is emerging as a star in a gloomy dark night, and illuminate the audience with its radiance.

Memoir of a Geisha

"Memoir of a Geisha " is Arthur Golden's debut masterpiece. The book caught my eye in the public library and it was purely a personal pick. It is mesmerizing, extraordinary, enchanting and  poetic. I would describe the novel in all the  superlative terms. Running over 434 pages in paperback, it is a terrific novel; that spans the chronological tale of a geisha in a war time in Japan.

The rainmaker

What is my reflections on reading John Grisham's "Rainmaker" ?I feel like having watched a movie and was totally engrossed in every actions and deliberations of the drama unfolding in front of my eyes. I have a perfect understanding of the character's emotions, intelligence, and the inner struggle. Grisham's portrayal of the main protagonists are very striking and powerful. Some of the events and personalities could have resemblances to real life occurrence.

Foregone conclusion

The preliminary result for the election of 3rd  Kalon Tripa of exile Tibetan government has announced, and Dr.Lobsang Sangay has swept the polls with a landslide victory. A good report on phayul for the details,
 a strong lead indeed, and probably it is a foregone conclusion as who will emerge as  the winner for final election in March. Unless there is a game changer, that tilt the favour for Tethong, and unless Tethong revamp his election campaigning, Dr. Lobsang Sangay is the obvious favorite.
