A Christmas eve post.

Hi there,  I watched this movie today, along with my daughter on Netflix. I fell in love with it! The animation is fantastic. Kurt Russel SHINES as Santa. The brother and sister duo are heartwarming. The direction is superb, the action scenes have you holding your breath and you find yourself rooting for Santa. While the story itself is not 'unexpected', what is refreshing is the treatment.

For all of you who want to get published, do attend the second session, where I will be in conversation with Amrita Mukherjee. For the first, Ravinder Singh, Seema Anand and I will be in conversation with Dipankar Mukherjee. Here's a nice pic of Ravinder and me, clicked when we last met. I will be in Kochi on 26th November.

(which means I wake up at 4.00 am) So you can see how punishing it
