Languages, rituals and food of India may change with geography. But the people from villages stay the same. No matter where you come from, this movie is for you.

When you set aside the traditional picture of 'the poor village farmers who can't afford to feed themselves', you might get a glimpse of how innocent, simple and, one might go as far to say, satisfying, lives that they lead. This is exactly what this movie shows.
Superb direction and acting and blah blah. The plethora of awards say just that. You dont need me there.

One straightforward task + some outside help + battle for the credit + some awwwww moments + secret ingredient(s) = Valu

(PS: watch Deool(2011) too. Its almost as good as this one. Same director.)

Deool = Temple.
I wouldn't be caught dead watching a movie about or against any kind of temple. I just don't care about the institution. I didn't want to watch this one, because I thought it would either be about the greatness, or the mockery, of some temple.

BUT, its as far as it gets from either. Its the golden mean.

People, who don't have much, need to put faith in something higher, and believe that at least somebody has control of their lives. Keep this in mind and watch the movie and don't go "Oh, these people are so stupid to revere (pooja) a tree".
You will not only spend 2.5 hours thoroughly entertained, but also learn
Why people want temples?
Why politicians agree/oppose to build temples?
Why they are actually built"
(And the most fun part,) How they are "OPERATED"?

Keep in mind that, in our country most people not only believe in higher powers, but also in performing rituals. So even if you are an atheist or agnostic or whatever else, knowing about "Deool" is a very useful information to have.

This film will make you think about the infrastructure, the employment conditions, the local politics and the people, every time you pass a temple. It brings out the economist in me.

I DIDN'T GET BORED FOR EVEN A SECOND. That's the highest praise I can give to a movie.

Even the songs are good.(maybe except for one item song).

(PS: watch Valu(2008). I liked that one even better.)

Using it for ~1 year.
-1 star because its not very accurate. -2 minutes per month. After 8 months it was behind by 6 minutes compared to a G-shock.

Great for absolute beginners, Nice-to-have for everybody else

If you dont have an RPi yet, you HAVE to buy it with this book. Only stuff that needs to be printed, is in here. Rest is available online on thousands of blogs.
So forget the blogs, start with this book. Its the quickest & cheapest way to get started with, giving some input to RPi & making it output some signals. Once thats out of the way, build complex algorithms, or rather copy paste them from your favorite blogs. Also most of the basics of Linux, Python, various electronic components & precautions, are here, so its a nice compilation to have for even experienced programmers.

Comes with Rs 25000 device protection insurance. Bought 2 of these and one 4 socket for my office laptops. Also limited lifetime warranty. The price is just perfect. Been using similar one for a year now. No problems at all.

Its a really nice way of making your office look sleek by hiding these under the desks, instead of drilling holes in every cubicle to fit disgusting electrical panels.
