Day 151: Rehearsal, Photoshoot and Darshan

Looks like it is completely back to the grind now. Post the holiday, I had been working on some shoot schedules etc. but today things got really back to the pre-holiday mode with complete immersion in film work. We started off with about 5 hours of rehearsals followed by an outdoor photoshoot. The photoshoot was a casual one mainly meant for a couple of pics that are referred to and shown in the film itself. But getting that done was not as easy as one would have expected. Apparently my cast who are all otherwise very fun people, finds it the utmost difficult thing to give me a fun-looking pose for a photograph. After much effort but with loads of fun as well, we did get a few really nice shots. So it's all good.

Later in the evening hubby, mom and I visited spiritual guru Mata Amritanandamayi about whom I had written here yesteryday. Today was the last day of her annual visit to Singapore and it meant an elaborate discourse, meditation session, night-long bhajans and "darshan" which basically meant that we can meet her individually for a few seconds. So all the tens of thousands of people gathered there get their less than a minutes personal time with her. All three of us got that after waiting for a few hours and felt pretty good about it.

849 more to go.
