Diplomacy Today.

Cheerful Monk started off her post with “I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once. ~ Ashleigh Brilliant”

That brought this news item to mind about how fickle today’s world is. We do not know if there will be a tomorrow at all!

For those who are interested in seeing the original Bollywood clip, here it is so that you can decide which is better!

  1. Andy and I don’t need either video to remind us that life is uncertain, so live it to the fullest. It was over 25 years ago that I would say at work, “We don’t have that many good minutes left, so let’s make the most of them.” People scoffed at the time, but I still think it was a great strategy. 🙂

    Hi Rummy,

    Superb videos. The first one is what I call soft power in a fun way; and the second (the original) is simply gorgeous. I loved the music, the production, the girl’s hair…everything.
    What a great start to my day.

    Cheers 😀

    Of course the dance moves are crisper and the angst of young love more poignant in the original. However, perhaps even thought there was the deliberate knock-off quality to the version acted by the Germany Embassy members, there’s still a sense of life missed, steps not taken, and an urgency to live what life one has that’s communicated by the greater ages in that version. Bravo for the German embassy loving Bollywood, though! My son-in-law’s grandfather was Aspi Irani, a Bollywood director and producer from the 30’s to the 70’s: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2055188/ His grandfather disappeared under mysterious circumstances. They’re always searching for his Bollywood movies. There aren’t many available here in the U.S. to be seen or purchased, though.

    • I had lost touch with Bollywood films and now am able to get back to them due to the availability of DVDs and YouTube! Believe me, I am having a ball catching up.
