As previously mentioned, I watched my first Hindi film last December, and I was completely hooked. I started buying movies online in February, when I realized that the public library's selection of Hindi movies apparently consisted of all the rejects from someone's personal collection. To decide what movies were worth buying, I began looking at and then religiously following several great blogs on Bollywood films. I've found these blogs to be an invaluable resource for me, as well as a lot of fun to read. Now that I'm not such a complete newbie to Hindi films and have finally figured out how to take screencaps, I've decided to do a bit of film blogging myself. So as not to bore those of you who aren't interested, I've created a new blog specifically for this purpose. Join me there if you wish. It's

I'm starting with Mehndi Lagi Mere Haath, a 1962 film that's apparently too obscure to have a rating on IMDB, wherein we learn that the prejudice against girls who wear glasses reaches across cultures and decades.

So come take a look if you'd like.

I hope this doesn't mean you'll be neglecting your non-bolly blog.

We'll see. The problem is that I don't really have much to say that isn't Bollywood-related. I'd like to talk about work, but there are those pesky ethical rules. Also, I dreamed that I blogged about a crack case, and the defendants found my blog through Google and decided to track me down and kill me. I'd like to avoid that, if possible.

I think you should avoid being hunted down by crack-heads at all cost, but I too hope that you will not neglect this blog.
