In the last post, I had discussed the emotional stress that one might have to go for preparing for UPSC CSE examination. Most of my elders except me to study for 16-18 hours. I am not someone who is going to take unwarranted advises and ruin my peace of mind and my health. I believe that entertainment is a necessary part of this preparation. I took a day of and looked for a movie on the internet I have always looked for something in history or war genre. This time it was a Jackie Chan movie named Dragon Blade.
Most people tend to look for violent and nudity scenes in such movies.However, I try to learn something from them. I know that such movies are merely a work of fiction but we must remember that they tell us of a time when friendship and honor meant something and people were not that fake. Promises were kept and laws were respected as compared to our civilized society today. Everyone had a reason to live and work hard. But today things seems to have taken a peculiar shape. We are living in days of mob mentality where people will run after one thing- money.
The movie deals with the defense of the silk road and how a protection squad tries to save it from Romans and some Chinese traitors. Both Chan and John Cusack are on the side of good and they must fight the Roman Army. This is entirely fictional and no way had Roman Empire came near to China or they ever wanted to take Silk Road.
