Bohemian Rhapsody

Roger: “You’re a legend, Fred”

Freddie: “We’re all legends.”

Bohemian Rhapsody

I know Freddie Mercury as a legend, because of his talent as songwriter, singer and performer.

Things as writing songs, ruling the stage and holding sway over thousands of fans make Freddie a special person and the film focuses on them.

It also shows us a man who was lonely and insecure, who did not feel he deserved love.

Besides, this film touches your heart making you think what kind of life you lived and what kind of memories you made listening to their songs.

In my opinion, it is the kind of film you can watch over and over again … A film with strong messages: family is the most important thing and living an authentic life.

In fact, “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a film that makes you think that nobody will do for you what you are not willing to do for yourself. To think that YOU are able to stand up for yourself and be who you really are!

Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy

Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a fiction movie about the first revolt against the British Raj in India and is inspired by the life of Indian independence activist Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy from the Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh.

I am against war and any kind of violence, but I love Narasimha Reddy‘s bravery and honesty. I love them in any form they come. I love it when people believe in themselves and their dreams, and follow them.

I also like Narashyma Reddy‘s words. He says that defending a country from exterior means cleaning it first from the interior traitors. În my opinion, it is true for each of us, for we all have our interior traitors and they are our fears.

Cleaning your fears, you are brave accepting and loving your “interior traitors”. In that way, you change yourself and follow your heart, for you become honest with yourself, and love yourself.

Loving, you will know that you are not your fears. You are either your own Guru or Hero!

Learning about people, you love dogs

Learning about people, You like dogs

Ever since I moved to the village, I have seen people crossing the road with a stick in their hands. I asked someone, why he carries it with him. The answer was “to protect me if a dog attacks”. There is the lesson “fight or flight” because of fear but even using a stick to hurt a dog, that will still be there. The lesson I learned from my father is that unless you run or hit the dog, he does nothing to you. This thing made me love dogs even more.

It happened to me that some people coming to my gate, tried hitting my dog over the gate, in my yard, with the whip or the fist. Although, he only does his “job”. He barks because he defends his yard and owner.

That is why I agree with Mark Twain’s words:

The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog. 

– M. Twain

Learning about people you like or hate them

Unfortunately, in the society we live in, you can be easily fooled. Especially if you do not listen to your instinct, do not know the body language, or do not look into people’s eyes.

Many times we are afraid to look into people’s eyes. We don’t look into ourselves, so how can we do it with others? We’re afraid of what we might find there. Maybe, what we see resonates with what we feel. And we just want to feel good. Thus, we prefer lying than to think beyond the barriers we live in. However, the wrong part is still part of our life and by not accepting it, we do not accept the whole. It destroys our comfort for we do not like change.

In addition, we are taught to listen only to the voice of rationality and to ignore our instinct. Then, many times we cry or are sorry for we did not.

Moreover, the man lies to you and can do it with much nonchalance. Some do not think they can hurt through lies or their actions. Maybe, they don’t care.

Learning about dogs, you like them

Instead, the dog will look you in the eye. He communicates with you in this way. He feels what you feel. He knows if he can trust you or not. It is because he is just his feelings. I said he just loves or tries to defend himself. When he loves you, his gestures make you feel loved because he offers you his unconditional love.

If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.

― Woodrow Wilson

The dog doesn’t lie to you. He eats what you give him because he trusts you. I saw a dog beaten, with his teeth broken, another one with one eye removed and yet they returned to their owners. It is because they know loyalty, respect, and unconditional love.

you like dogs

I posted again because it is very dear to me. On the one hand, because I love the beings in it. On the other hand, for me, it is the bond formed between two beings who do not belong to the same category but share respect and love.

How do we treat dogs?

We are those who are trying to humanize them, using clothes and accessories. Also, we are those who hurt, starve or kill them. At the same time, there are people living in the canals or on the streets. They do not afford clothes that others allow for a dog. Where is our humanity?

I said that I moved to the village and the first impediment I reached was waking up with uninvited guests in the yard. I actually found one in the house and he was an unknown person. It was the first time that happened to me (and the last). I was shocked at that time.

Also, here in the village, I discovered that some people can keep a dog but do not love it. In addition, if they come to your door they take care to have a stick in their hand and to hit your dog if he barks.

A dog’s life

We are talking about a man who lives badly as he lives a dog life. If he is sick, we say he suffers like a dog.

Actually, a dog suffers because the man makes him suffer. We keep him tied, beat him, starve him or kill his puppies. He is a free-born being that adapts to the conditions in which he lives. If he has no food, he looks for it, if he has no shelter, he looks for. If he meets a man who offers him little food, he loves him.

They teach us about friendship, selflessness, and loyalty. They also teach us the way to communicate without words, to listen more than hear, and accept death with grace.

Difference between a person and a dog?

It is not our rationality. It is his loyalty:

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.

– Mark Twain

It is also his love:

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.

– Josh Billings

Athena (my dog in the pictures) does not bark at some people who pass my threshold, although she is “a bad dog”. So, I believe my dog ​​when she barks because she listens to her instinct, and that is not a lie.

Learning about people, I respect the man, but I love my bad dog.

I’m suspicious of people who don’t like dogs, but I trust a dog when it doesn’t like a person. 

– Bill Murray

I can tell you thank you

I can tell you “thank you”

Growing up with only one parent, you think of yourself as a child who did something wrong, sometimes… Though, how to live without that important part of your life as one of the parents is? Can you tell “thank you” to the parent who does not want to be part of your life?

Some fathers have been sons, many sons become fathers, but some have forgotten what they were, and there is no one to explain to the others what they will be.

– Jose Saramago

Mom and Dad are the first persons who should write together the first chapters of the child’s life. Chapters, from which trust and self-esteem are born. Although, what does it happen when one is missing from the child’s life?

May I tell you, thank you?

As a child, I would have liked to know you, so that I could grow up with a model near me, without looking for one among strangers. To meet you to get to know me better and to find my way in life more easily.

If I listen to some people, you have only weakness because you did not want to raise your child. Listening to others, you have qualities. How may I know them? You have decided that it is easier for you if your son will grow up without you getting involved. Then, how to know you?

As a child, I considered myself being punished for living without a father because I am a bad child. This is how I knew that “sinners” are punished. Was a sin that I was born?

I grew up with the illusion that one day you will come to be part of my journey. Or maybe, someone will take your place. Thus, I was asking each relative who was visiting us “Do you want to be my father?”

Besides, when my mother could not fulfil the father’s role, I read or asked strangers, because you were not around me. Can I tell you “thank you”?

You have not been around me

When I’ve fallen while learning to walk. You didn’t hear me telling stories as I knew them. You weren’t there to help me get up when I was beaten or bullied. Not even when I had nightmares or fever.

You haven’t been near me when I was crying, for I wanted to see you. Even if you would know, you will not understand what it is like to cry a river of tears asking “why does not he come to see me?” Even when I was looking at the children running into their parents’ arms. How they hugged or jumped their children on their shoulders.

You will never know how much I wanted you to know that you are dead than to accept that you did not want me in your life. Maybe, I could easily get over your absence in my life.

Also, you weren’t near me when I needed you to warm my frozen hands. When I needed you to teach me how to ride my bike, roller skates or rollers.

You were not near me when I learned to swim or dance. Not even to support me when I went to competitions. Not even when I needed to know how to conquer a girl’s heart.

Yet, because I was not a bad child, I always found strangers who helped me. They supported and encouraged me. They were more fond of me than you were, “father”.

A child looks up at the stars and wonders. A great father puts a child on his shoulders and helps them to grab a star.

― Reed B Markham

I wished you could help me grab my star, father.

What would I have wished?

I wished you dared to come and see me, but you let the years pass as if we have all the time in the world.

To be near me when I learned how to write and read. To run into your arms to show you what I can do.

I wished I shared with you the few gifts I received from Santa. To feel the warmth of your hug.

You haven’t been there to make me feel safe. You weren’t there to see that

There’s nothing that moves a loving father’s soul quite like his child’s cry.

– Joni Eareckson Tada

Growing up, I was looking for you to know why you didn’t want me in your life. I found only a thick wall called selfishness and lack of interest.

What have I learned without you?

For many people, children are gifts. For some, they are burdens. I learned that you belong to the second category.

I have learned that some people want their children and cannot have them. Others have children and abandon them. Also, you are still in second place.

My life made me understand that wishes become true, if I want to and take action for. Thus, I know you because I have wanted to.

I learned that an adult remains a frustrated child if he will not change himself. If he will not take action to pursue his dreams.

I learned to become independent and be responsible for my actions.

Now, after meeting you, I can’t say that you are dear to me. Instead, I learned not to hate you. I don’t even miss you anymore. I feel you like an obstacle in my path if you would be close.

Moreover, I learned that you will never know that being proud of me would have made you proud of yourself. Instead, I am proud of the man I have become.

Maybe, one day, I will have sons who will tell me “dad” just as I could never tell you that word.

Now, I can tell you “thank you” for everything I have learned without you, for you have not been part of my life.

A son

(to whom others have explained what to be a son is like and what to be a father will be like.)
