This movie was visually stunning, had a beautiful soundtrack. It reminded me of little old ladies at Kalighat, and of walking the platforms of Howrah Station, and of sweet girls who roam up and down Park street. Even, maybe especially, when we read about the coming of the Prince of Peace, there is the ache and incongruity of those things that most need an exceptional hope. From Revelation 21:

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."

loved the movie but cried a ton thinking of the possibilities of prema being that little girl. she perseverates on weddings, had her nose pierced...maybe she was married off young and they didn't want her. watch fire too...that was good. we've tried to get ice but can't seem to find a copy anywhere. its a trilogy.

merry christmas...we love you
