Religion Poisons Everywhere

I have posted very little lately because I discovered that YouTube has movies in addition to those too-prevalent junk videos. The good videos can be difficult to find because they are buried deep, so I decided to post this wonderful movie here (just follow the "next" trail).

Water exposes the harm done to people by religious edicts, and reveals the original selfish motivation behind the invention of this particular religious superstition. The movie is in Hindi with English subtitles, yet is quite easy to follow because dialogue is minimalist.

Water was directed by Indian/Canadian, Deepa Mehta as part of her Elements Trilogy and was nominated for an Academy Award. Mehta lost out to the multi-award winner, The Lives of Others (Das Leben der Anderen).

La Despedida

Hay Amores





No hay mas cielo , no hay
No hay mas vida, no hay
No hay mas vida, no hay
No hay mas lluvia, no hay
No hay mas brisa, no hay
No hay mas risa, no hay
No hay mas llanto, no hay
No hay mas miedo, no hay
No hay mas canto, no hay

Llévame donde estés, llévame
Llévame donde estés, llévame
Cuando alguien se va, él que se queda
Sufre más
Cuando alguien se va, él que se queda
Sufre más

No hay mas viento, no hay
No hay mas hielo, no hay
No hay mas fuego, no hay
No hay mas vida, no hay
No hay mas vida, no hay
No hay mas rabia, no hay
No hay mas sueño, no hay

Llévame donde estés, llévame
Llévame donde estés, llévame
Cuando alguien se va, él que se queda
Sufre más
Cuando alguien se va, él que se queda
Sufre más...
Sufre más....

The Farewell

There is no more life, there is none
There is no more life, there is none
There is no more rain, there is none
There is no more breeze, there is none
There is no more laughter, there is none
There is no more crying, there is none
There is no more fear, there is none
There is no more song, there is none

Carry me to where you are, carry me.
Carry me to where you are, carry me
When someone leaves, he who stays
suffers more
When someone leaves, he who stays
suffers more

There is no more sky, there is none
There is no more wind, there is none
There is no more ice, there is none
There is no more fire, there is none
There is no more life, there is none
There is no more life, there is none
There is no more rage, there is none
There is no more dreaming, there is none

Carry me to where you are, carry me.
Carry me to where you are, carry me
When someone leaves, he who stays
suffers more...
When someone leaves, he who stays
suffers more...

suffers more...
suffers more...
