“There is no present like the time”

These were the words which came out of the mouth of a humble Indian taxi driver by the name of Babul.
“How Profound” I thought to myself “damn shame it is scripted”.
These were one of two quotes which made a real impression on me when I had the pleasure of watching the movie “The Second Best Exotic Marigold hotel”.
The title might leave you with the impression that this movie is not as good as the first. But nothing is further from the truth. I believe the first movie was a bit of an experiment where everyone was quite hesitant to put a lot of expensive resources behind it. However with its success the producers have not held back the second time around. Ironically “The Second Best Marigold hotel” was far superior to the first when it came to scripting, production values and thanks to the presence of Richard Gere, casting.
One thing was the same though it was a great repository of quotable quotes just like its predecessor. However this is not a review of the movie which I am sure there are tons available online. But let me tell you one thing do watch it if you get the chance I really enjoyed it. Now back to “No present like the time’’. Isn’t it absolutely true?
In todays constantly networked world where terms like partial attention synodrome are part of our lexicon we forget that the best gift we can give someone is our time and attention. Sadly it is one commodity which most people do not value.
One other brilliant quote could be considered a life hack. When this same driver was asked “What do you do when you have to face a difficult decision” this was his answer “I don’t believe there is such a thing. Throw a coin in the air and we always know what side we want it to land on.” Sheer brilliance even if its scripted.
