Heey, it's kinda like months late lol but thanks for your recommendation of Seeta Aur Geeta! I really loved it.

Ahh yes, Aki Kaurismaki! I've been wanting to watch his films since forever, but as usual I've been a lazy ass slacker and I've neglected to do so. The problem is that dumb American cinema is so accessible and I just end up watching whatever's on TV instead of actually putting in the effort to find some quality foreign cinema to watch. But anyways I think Finnish humour is fantastic because it's like a combo of absurdism and satire that is smart and hilarious at the same time.

And you're really right about the tedium of staying in one country forever. First world countries are nice I guess, but they're too safe, sterile and dull if you stay in them for too long. Of course it sounds idiotic and privileged to consider other countries to be nothing more than exotic novelties, but I can't help but think in that mindset when I consider the numbing blandness of Canada. Also, I haven't traveled much in my life, which totally sucks. I want to learn about the world firsthand rather than just be stuck in one place 4ever.

Religious fanatics are soo annoying. India has some reallyy demented fundies and so does the Middle East, so people often make terrorist jokes at our expense -__- Like oh yeah, there are ONLY brown terrorists, wtf! But Sikhism is a mostly peaceful religion, when it's practiced right of course. Well actually it started out as a sort of warrior cult to keep Mughal invaders out, which is pretty damn badass.

Btw an "orgiastic feast for the senses" is totally right. India has uh, rather powerful smells but that's what I like about it. Except for the manure stench that the farmlands tend to have, but whatevs. Indian food is delish, especially when it's really spicy. If my mouth isn't burning then they didn't cook it right, that's my motto.

Hmm I suppose it is pretty cool to have an extra cultural background, but it's also kinda weird too. It's like I have a separate culture on layaway or something. If I had a choice, I'd rather have just grown up in India and been Indian 2 the max. Lol but noo instead I'm in freezing ass Canada, dying a death of boredom. And what do you have to envy dude, you're Finnish. Finns are totally amazing, from what little I know about the culture I know that y'all have a badass sense of humour.

I can read and write in Gurmukhi but I'm soo rusty from lack of practice and I read as slow as a snail. I hate how no one ever taught me Devanagari though -__- My parents forced me to go to a Sikh Sunday school when I was a kid and the teachers there only focused on Punj stuff, the bastards. The problem with Punjs is that they're so proud of their own province and don't give a damn about the rest of the country. Like if you've heard of the Khalistan movement and all that, you knows Sikhs can be crazy af.

Hippies in Goa, mann that sounds rad. And going into the desert on a camel has always been a dream of mine. Except I'd probably fall off of the damn thing. O and it's cool that you like Indian food because most people complain it's too spicy and smelly, like excuse me that's the way it's supposed to be!

Ugh yeah I'm a pretty poor excuse for an Injun :/ I'm kinda watered down and cracker-ized since I've lived in Canada my whole life so I'm just gonna plead ignorance for my case. Though I do speak Punjabi fairly fluently and Hindi sloppily so I'm not completely stupid, see! I gotta get my butt in gear and watch some Satyajit Ray and Guru Dutt right away.

Omg you lucky bastard, you've really been around! And I see you've been to Goa, which is like my dream vacationing spot that I would go to if I had some cash. Seems like a gorgeous paradise. Andd aahh you've been to the Taj Mahal, so cool. Too bad it's been turned into a commonplace tourist trap though. The Shah Jahan dude is probably rolling in his grave rn.

My two trips to India weren't really vacation-like and fun actually. I was mostly stuck in a lil Punj village staying with my extended family in our super old ancestral home. I come from a long line of hick farmers on both sides of my family and they live a very, well, antediluvian lifestyle. Outhouses, no stove or kitchen, electricity that goes out at random moments, no running hot water, no showers or bathtubs, no internet...Let's just say I lived like a peasant for months at a time and learned a whole lot about what a first-world brat I am. So I kinda associate India with simple living and down to earth-ness. I really don't know how I survived but I guess it was an interesting experience nonetheless.

Thanks for the suggestions, I've been wanting to watch those two films since foreevverr. I'm Indian and I'm such a disgrace to my race because I haven't watched Bollywood cinema for so long even though I was basically born and raised on Indian movies. I seriously need to check out some o'dat good stuff soon.

Coool, you been to India? Whereabouts? I've also been there twice but I only got to see rural ass Punjab and Delhi because I had to go with my uptight jerkoff family. I got to go to the beautiful Golden Temple in Amritsar but I wanted to see the dang Taj Mahal like every other stereotypical tourist. But I totally get the nostalgia value you mentioned because whenever I watch a Bollywood film I get acid flashbacks bout my travels in India too.

Truee, something about Old Bollywood is so magical and beautiful. Like you said, although it's cheesy as hell and the movies are like 3 hours long, the shit is too entertaining and glamorous. Oh and retro Hindi music is super fantastic, totally, and the dance routines are just amazing.

Be sure to check out and vote on my latest list! A lot of research went into ordering the films by the period in which they take place in Japanese history with the goal (hopefully) of visualizing Japanese history through film. Thanks! http://www.listal.com/list/experience-japanese-history-through-film
