MyBindi Weekly Newsletter
January 16, 2014
Welcome to another edition of MyBindi's newsletter.  
It's hard to believe we are already halfway through January.  Are you working through your resolutions?
As a lawyer, I find that the one thing that most of my clients make a priority in the new year is to plan their Will. Here are some things you should know about NOT having a will and maybe you'll be able to decide if you really need a will. 
So why do I start with such a sombre topic you wonder? It's because I want you to know about an organization called Amar Karma and the good work that they are doing to create awareness on organ donation.  You can support their "Give a Heart" event on February 8.  
But, as much good as we can do in our death, let's make sure we make the most at celebrating life.

And, no one throws a celebration more glamorous than Anokhi Magazine.  Get your tickets now and join in their 11th anniversary event on February 1, 2014
Don't forget to engage your child in music and performance through the  Oakville Children's Choir! This organization values community partnerships.  The auditions are on now.  Call 905-337-7104 or send them an email to book your child's audition.

Have yourself a great weekend! 

Best regards,

Movie Spotlight - Dedh Ishqiya
Set in a decadent and picturesque North Indian heartland that's filled with loveable criminals, this film, Dedh Ishqiya has everything you could ask for. There are love triangles, a bromance, a delicious villain, multiple twists, car chases and, of course, lots of humour.

Shah and Warsi first played the roles of the two petty but charming con men, Khalujan and Babban, in Chaubey's debut film, Ishqiya. In this sequel, Vidya Balan's Krishna is history and the two men have new targets. Rather, Khalujan does. Khalujan has set his sights upon Begum Para (Dixit-Nene), the gorgeous widow of a nawab. Begum Para has announced her intention to remarry, but according to her deceased husband's directives, she is to marry the man who can win a shayri contest.

Starring: Madhuri Dixit, Arshad Warsi, Naseerudin Shah, Huma Qureshi
Director: Abhishek Chaubey
Where: Albion Cinemas (Etobicoke) & York Cinemas (Richmond Hill)

Malaa Treon   
Ayush Tandon & Avneet Sawhney in Malaa Treon's New Song 'Labdiyaan'  
Malaa Treon who recently released her Punjabi single 'Labdiyaan' says there is no age to accomplish a dream.

"I started ten years ago and this project got shelved due to no support from my family," reveals Treon. "I lost funds on a bad video, earned what I had lost again."

A decade later, there was no giving up for this Punjabi woman as she journeyed ahead and brought out her debut single. "Ten years later... no giving up... a true Punjabi spirit! A one woman show! There is no age for a dream to be accomplished! At the ripe age of 50 yrs, I took the plunge! " adding with pride that Ayush Tandon (Life of Pi) and Avneet Sawhney (DID Li'l Masters) are featured in the music video of her song.

"The song is a journey from finding love to found the love," says Treon.

The song Labdiyaan has been released as a Punjabi folk fusion number, a song which is a part of who Treon is. The song relates to merry-making, celebration, love and finding love, and is now making its appearance in Canada. According to the artist and musician, the song has been designed to cater to all moods and age groups.
