All I wanna do is (BANG BANG BANG BANG!)

This is just a part of the lyrics of a song in Slumdog Millionaire,"Paper Planes" . First about the movie...I watched it first time online, okay ! what's so incrdible ? (Actually I watched it really with sleeping eyes.) Second time I again watched it (I had too, as it won so many awards and I had to see if its worth it). Definitely the movie is good and portrays some of the basic humanism found in the street of mumbai.

This second time made me hooked to the soundtrack of the music. It's fabulous, am not going to write about all that, but only about the one "Paper-Planes". Great lyrics and it was originally written by Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam(M.I.A), better there is an acronym for the name, as a few can spell it. Am listening even to the song while writing all this crap.

There is a statement underneath the song (My strong belief is, feeling for any song or poem or any stuff varies from person to person. This may be termed as the product of "state of mind in which an individual is".) I am attached to the song. I don't want to care for the world, want to be a Jack and a Master in all trades (notorious ones). The Paper-Planes reminds me of all the things which I wanted to do and still want to do.

A lady who sits besides me at workplace(overheard the song N times) asked me so it's Paper-Planes again ? I just smiled, we all know about the "Paper-Planes", atleast we were supposed to know.

The Paper-Planes were the things of childhood, there were many methods to make them,.I remember the Rockets (folding the paper and using a rubber band to shoot it over people). These Paper-Planes represented the freedom which we had. This we exercised by making the planes land over to the pretty gals in the class.

Why we don't take the life in a same manner. Are there enough of quandaries which we can't solve ? We missed a lot of Paper Planes, we make them again, every time with a new hope, this one will fly and this one will fly to the flyiest(the new term for the apogee - highest attainable).

The childhood gleamed with what we all wanted to do, the freedom which a Plane exercised over the landing. The Planes never cared about the landing in the forbidden area, irrespective of the direction of flying. The forbidden area reminds me of the "Forbidden Apple", which eventually helped for the Paradise Lost.

Let's start building the same Paper-Planes and pursue the forbidden, a few may have "The Paradise" with them, what about those who don't have any but only "Papers.....for the Plane"

"I fly like paper, get high like planes,
If you catch me at the border I got visas in my name,
If you come around here, I make 'em all day,
I get one down in a second if you wait "

Firstly, the song genre sounds hip-hop, I hate hip-hop so naturally hate this one too even without having an ear to the words what it actually says!

Secondly, emotions do control creation, but not every time.

And finally on a serious note, the words quickly jumps from I to we and we to I. I doubt I really could understand that. Bhai isko akele rehne mein darr lagta hai isiliye bheed badha raha hai! :-P
