Father's Day, Mother's Day or even otherwise, it's good to oft reflect on the wonderful things your parents have taught you that are gems which you're going to treasure for the rest of your life and pass them on to your children and posterity. 

While from a mother you'd essentially imbibe the qualities of nurture,honesty, discipline, grace and compassion but from a father you'd learn some invaluable lessons that could possibly be chapters from his life which would help you deal with the real world. 

At the end of it, what you'd learn from both your parents would give you a fine balance of life and go on to define the very essence of your being. In fact, I find that many things taught by a father are those I've learnt from a mother as well; so it's this convergence of the principles, morals and qualities that solidifies this very root of my existence.

Films are my fodder for love and romance! Of heart-aches to falling in love and from dalliances to alliances...a 90 minute film offers it all! And when a film becomes my favorite, be sure that I'm reading all about it - whether it's news, gossip or the buzz surrounding the air! And it so happens to be that I belong to the old school of romance... so not surprising are my choices of novels and films!

Now that WeChat has given me an opportunity to group-chat with as many as I can, I'm not going to let it go! So, through a poem I composed, I thought of quizzing some popular actors, an actress, a director and renowned literary authors from the films, novels and adaptations that I've loved from their body of works with the likes of Jane Austen, Colin Firth, Margaret Mitchell, Clark Gable, Audrey Hepburn, Nicholas Sparks and James Cameron
