Someone recommended me to watch the 2004 Paul Haggis movie Crash. Desparation got the better of me and Youtube pointed to the easy exit. So I just finished watching the movie. Thanks Sujata, it was indeed a fine movie, at least thats what a part of me keeping telling me. I say so because the other part kept thinking I am watching a well made documentary, an extremely well made one.

A good documentary is almost like a movie; in fact I am not even sure if there is a sharp line separating them. Possibly I was less moved than expected while the movie because I am so used to seeing around me all those that was shown in the movie. A sensitive person should crash while watching the vignettes of discrimination, mostly racial in nature. I have seen those in so many forms and feathers that they didn't affect me as much.

A poet once said "Where the mind is without fear, where the head is held high...". It needs a lot of courage to be able to do that in today's world.
