Best of India Movies

There’s a big difference between race and culture.

Because racially, I’m an Indian man.

Culturally, not at all.

    I enjoy learning more about other cultures. I looked up Diwali and loved the beautiful colors in the photos from various events, the fireworks, decorations and colorfully dressed people enjoying the festivities. The photos of the market places are incredible too, now I’m craving foods of India! I work with an engineer that was heading home to India last week. Maybe that was one of his reasons for the trip. It’s so much better to see happy things in the world rather than our other darkened options that see in the news daily. Thank you for sharing, Sharky!

    I have seen a few movies made in India years ago but can’t recall the titles anymore. They were well done movies with very good plots. I do recall a Hollywood made India inspired comedy that I took a date to a few years ago. I intentionally won’t share the title because I don’t want it ever to be seen again as it shouldn’t have then. She wanted to see something else and I wanted see my movie. You would have thought I won—wrong. Ninety minutes we would never get back and an hour more after—I wouldn’t! Talk about in the dog house. Damn it, I hate to disappoint a Goddess.
