The other day, I had gone to see ‘Barfi!’ at the neighbourhood multiplex; because everybody has seen it and are gushing about it, because the film is announced to represent India at the Oscars, because the reviews are unanimously good, and because the trailer on youtube looks so inviting, and because I liked the soundtrack.
Then I had an epiphany! What’s the point in paying my hard-earned money to see other people having fun. Instead, I must have fun myself. So, I left the multiplex and went straight to the nearby sweats shop, and got a barfi for myself. A big one. It was good.
