Why is watching Movies by going to Theaters is so popular?

There are many reasons why watching movies in theaters is so popular. For example, some people like going to the theater because they want to be surrounded by other people. Not just their family or spouse!

While others like going for the atmosphere of being in an old-fashioned movie theater with all of the decorations and attention that it gets! Watching movies in the theater is a great experience.

The sound and the picture quality are amazing. You feel like you are in another world.

The flip side is …

But there are also some cons of going to the movie theater. The biggest con is that it can be expensive and time-consuming. You have to buy tickets, find parking, go through security, and wait for your movie to start, amongst other things! In today’s rates, anything around ₹1200 to ₹1500 would be the cost!

Moreover, going to the theater can be more difficult for people with disabilities or elderly because there often aren’t any customizable seats available for them. Even if they do find a seat, it may not be very comfortable because theaters don’t have many seats with extra leg room or arm rests.

How Do People Feel About Watching Movies in the Theater?

Movies are a great way to spend time with friends and family. Theater-goers have mixed feelings about going to the theater. Some enjoy it, while others don’t. The main reason why people love going to the movies is because they can have fun outside.

Furthermore, the sheer experience of spending quality time with their friends and family is worth more than the amount of money they spend! Besides, they can also enjoy the movie without any distractions from their phone or laptop.

What Are The Best Movie-Watching Apps To Make Your Experience Even Better?

On the other hand, some people don’t like going to theaters because it’s expensive, crowded, and noisy. Have you ever been to the cinema, bought a ticket and found out that the movie you wanted to watch is not playing on the screen? Have you ever been in the cinema and couldn’t find a place to sit?

These are some of the most common problems that people may have faced when they went to watch movies. The best way to avoid these problems is by using an app. So, here are some of the best apps available for watching movies. Netflix, Amazon Prime, ZeeTV, Sony Liv are the OTT apps and for offline booking in any theater, there are many like Book My Show, Inox, PVR Cinemas and so on.

Watching Movies at the Theater worth it?

Watching movies at the theater is certainly worth it. This is because the experience of watching a movie at the theater is different from watching it in your home. The first thing you notice when you enter an auditorium is that the ambience and facilities for snacks and beverages.

Moreover, there are no ads on the screen while the movies goes on! The big screens, surround sound and air conditioning make for a more immersive experience.

Go for it if it if you are going to watch a movie for the first time or if it’s a blockbuster release, such as Gravity, Bahubali, Vikram or Top Gun Maverick for its special 3D effect.

How to regain the book reading pastime?

I love reading books. Of late, of course, it has become less. The main culprit -you guessed it!… is the internet. When you spend so much time on a PC or Laptop, naturally the book reading has come down. Even though there is a lot of reading that happens from the browsers, PDFs, EPUB, and Kindle, nothing can replace the charm and glory of reading from a book that you just bought from a bookstore.

The nostalgia of a bygone era…

When I settle down to read the book just then bought, the first thing that I would do was smell the book. It used to be so beautiful, invoking myriad feelings, setting me on a unique journey, that will end only when the last page of the book arrives. Depending on the book, I will sigh long and deep and close the book. Of course, it may not be in one sitting. Sometimes, yes…those were special books!

The Reading Challenge

Let us become specific. How many books can you read this year? If the answer is 6, (assuming 1 book in 2 months), then one way to do it is to list them in the Reading Challenge. If your intentions are clear, then it is possible as everybody would know the books you are reading! Naturally, they will ask you whether you completed the challenge. Or if it is just one of those posts on social media!

Planning to read?

Start today. Just allot 15 min to start with. After 15 minutes, stop even if it’s interesting so that there is something in it for you to come back to. Remember to set a particular time for it. So when the next day arrives, you will start to read exactly at the same time. Now make it 30 minutes and eventually an hour a day. If you continue, who knows, you may have clocked 20 to 24 hours in a month, which is enough to complete one or two books!

Please comment if you liked my suggestions. We will meet again soon on another topic on books. Bye, take care.

Yoga means Unification

The immunity factor

Your immunity plays a major role in successfully warding off or thwarting the dreaded coronavirus infection. Let us face it: The virus is deadly because regardless of your physical fitness, it invades your internal organs.  It could be virus-induced pneumonia or other respiratory tract infection to start with.  Its spread is certain when your defense mechanism is impaired. Fortunately, there are specific methods available to bolster your immunity mechanism. Let us see the steps involved in strengthening immunity.

Breathing exercises or Pranayama

Breathing is the bridge between the body and the mind. Have you noticed the change in your breathing when you are angry? It will come in short, sporadic breaths. Same way when you are scared or fearful due to panic attacks or stressful situations, your breathing becomes short and labored. On the other hand, when you relax and cool, your breathing is calm and smooth.

Deep Breathing is the Key

So instead of yielding to panic and fear, start breathing deeply during these stressful times to be on top of the situation especially when infected with the dreaded virus. Furthermore, becoming fearful of the infection makes you breathe shallow thereby reducing your oxygen intake and saturation.

Building up the immunity

The success of warding off the dreaded virus infection corona is your immunity against the invading virus. Regardless of your physical fitness, the virus attacks your organs. Furthermore, the spread of the virus is certain with your impaired defense mechanism. Fortunately, there are specific methods available to bolster your immunity mechanism. Let us see the steps involved in strengthening immunity.



A Vicious Circle?

Enter corona, you end up with impaired breathing, due to its deadly effect on the respiratory tract, mainly the lungs. Coupled with your fear, the breathing becomes further shallow. Other compounding factors like the fear of the disease itself, the present condition of hospitalization, expenses, and the lurking fear of death. Because of this fear, your oxygen intake becomes less, the might of Corona slowly strengthens its stranglehold of the alveoli in the lungs.  It is a vicious cycle as you can see.  Surely if your oxygen saturation falls below 92%, in the oximetry readings, you will have to go for oxygen supplementation. Therefore, break free from this vicious cycle by adopting these yoga techniques on deep breathing.

Three breathing exercises

Bhujangasan or Cobra Pose

Lie down on your yoga mat with your forehead touching the ground. Hands just below your shoulders and your pelvic girdle slightly elevated forming a V-shape with your buttocks raised. Your toes touching the ground outstretched. Three spots your body is touching the ground, namely your forehead, arms under the shoulders, and your feet outstretched. Take a deep breath and release…

Simha Kriya

Simha Kriya is a simple process of breathing out through your mouth in two ways. The first one with your tongue sticking out and the second with your tongue rolled over to your upper palate. Forcefully breath out through the mouth 21 times first with your tongue out and secondly with your tongue touching your upper palate. This is similar to Kapaalabaathy or the skull shining breath.

Deergha Swasam

Take a deep breath and hold as long as you are comfortable and release. Start with a small count of say 5 seconds and hold for as long as you are comfortable and breathe out slowly. Remember to do it at 70% of your capacity always. This means that if you can breathe in for 10 sec, do it only for 7 seconds initially and slowly over time build it up to 10 secs. Always start with a lesser count than your capacity so that you are always comfortable.

Online yoga class during the pandemic?

Yes, it certainly is the safest option. In the post-pandemic period, online yoga class is the safest option for keeping fit without the risk of being a carrier of the virus to your near and dear.  Can we conclude really that the pandemic is over and done away with? Of course, it is on the wane and is likely to reduce its spread.


We can say that regular practice of these breathing exercises goes a long way in strengthening your lungs. As a result, your oxygenation capacity increases.

Immunity what is thy price?

You are as healthy as your immunity permits you to be. Immunity is your ability to fight invading organisms be it virus or bacteria. Therefore, here we are going to see how to build up a strong and healthy immunity mechanism in our bodies.  By building a healthy reservoir of strength against invading organisms, one can be sure of not getting any disease.

Immunity vs disease

You will be surprised to know that immunity and disease are inversely connected. How?  The more immunity you have, the less likely it is for you to fall ill. Conversely, if you are afflicted with a disease, your immunity is, likely to have shrunk. Furthermore, if you examine the word disease; it consists of two words dis-ease which means the opposite of being at ease. Being at ease is a sign of health, right?

Eat healthily and build immunity

You are what you eat. It may sound too simplistic, but it is a fact. Eating affects your very being. Therefore, always make a wise and knowledgeable choice when it comes to eating. Fruits, veggies, and lean meat are preferable to other heavy food. Remember, immunity builds resistance to infection and influenza. Moreover, remember to consume as much water as possible for improved digestion and circulation.

Negative factors affecting immunity

You guessed it correct! Smoking!

The single big contributor of weakness and impairment to your lungs is smoking. Give up if not already done. It is no longer fashionable to smoke! If you remember the eighties, everyone smoked.! The actors, celebrities, you name it, they did. Remember, ” Come to Marlboro Country”? The handsome macho looking man with a Stetson western hat holding a horse. His left hand holding the horse and a glowing cigarette in his right!  So effective was the ad, the theme of the ad continued for a long time!

Positive factors building up immunity

Let us come to the positive aspect of building and harnessing the immunity factor. In fact, any type of physical exercise is welcome. To begin with, the list of physical exercises is long and varied. It includes walking, jogging, long-distance running like a marathon. Not to speak of the gym, aerobics, swimming, cycling apart from Yoga and Meditation is unthinkable! Therefore, join a weekend online yoga class. Better still any class that teaches you a deep breathing technique. In fact, there are so many different practices of deep breathing techniques that are effective in building up immunity.

Psychological factors affecting immunity

Studies have shown that one’s self-esteem and self-worth are intricately connected to personality. Therefore, anything that elevates your mood like music, dance, and meditation is worth its weight in gold!  Go for it without postponing it to tomorrow! Also, conversely, if you feel low, you may not want to do any practices! In this context, ten minutes of doing something every day is more important than reading about it!
