Doctor Zhivago


The first time I saw this film was around 2002-2003. A few days back, watched this film again in an original dvd with all the extra features. Fell in Love with the soundtrack again. Listened to it day-in and day-out. Salute to David Lean for making this film.

Instantly remembered this cartoon which I had seen a decade back. The human brain never deletes anything completely. Each and every thing is kept in a vault. One thing leads to another and the memories come back.

Boris Pasternak won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958. The communist regime of Soviet Union refused to allow him to accept the Prize and travel to Stockholm. Cartoonist Bill Mauldin won the Pulitzer Prize in 1959 for this cartoon :

"I Won the Nobel Prize for Literature, What was your Crime?"
