Happy Ash Wednesday


Hey, It’s Ash Wednesday. So this means I think of this Aish too!

One of the things I love best about Bollywood films are the spiritual and moral messages woven in with the music, dancing, action and melodrama.  Don’t you? I also adore all that suffering! Of course as a Catholic I know that suffering leads to purification, hain na? And Ash Wednesday officially kicks off Lent and those 40 days of sacrifice and suffering. So with this special day in mind, let’s enjoy a little sorrow and suffering dosto!

Bollywood teaches so many lessons, like this one, from the 1965 movie Guide. Click over to  DocBollywood for some interesting information on Guide. Here Dev Anand tells Waheeda Rehman some very valuable information:

Guide also teaches us about sorrow and suffering:

    Nandini, giving up Bollywood did enter my mind, but I dismissed the idea immediately. See I can partake in all that suffering, so in that way it’s very Lenten in nature, right?
