a 'noT sO greAt' m!nD @ woRk..

ab na rahe we pinewale…

अपने युग में सबको अनुपम
ज्ञात हुई अपनी हाला,
अपने युग में सबको अद् भुत
ज्ञात हुआ अपना प्याला,
फिर भी वृद्धो से जब पूछा
एक यही उत्तर पाया-
अब न रहे वे पीनेवाले,
अब न रही वह मधुशाला|

The above is an excerpt from Shri Harivanshray Bachchan’s ‘Madhushala’. It depicts the importance of the era to the person in which he lives. We think that now is the best time to live. We love our songs, our trends and styles, our way of living, in short everything. To us, the present time is the best one and we can’t imagine life without some of the things which, now a necessity, were not in even in the list of luxury some time ago. The question arises in our minds that how people lived then, with no TV, no cell, no modern day facilities. How they were able to entertain themselves when their options were limited to the All India Radio and the Doordarshan.  How on earth did they stay in contact without sms and internet.

But but but, this is our thinking, not of those who lived then. When asked, our parents would look somewhere in the horizon and start with “This is nothing. Life was what we lived then”, followed by all the things they did, the fun they had even without our so-called basic necessities (a gift of modern technology), the times that they wished to be back.

Our grandparents would go further back in the time and tell their tales.

So, the thing is no matter whatever or however were the times, people always love their time, the time of their youth, the time when blood gushed through their veins ready to take up any adventure, the stories of their love and break ups and crushes. Person of any generation, when speaking on this topic would always say:
अब न रहे वे पीनेवाले,
अब न रही वह मधुशाला

OSO vs The Secret

‘agar tum kisi cheez ko shiddat se chaho to puri qaaynaat use tumse milane me lag jati’, a dialogue from the blockbuster “Om Shanti Om” which conveys exactly the same message as Drew Heriot’s “The Secret”.
OSO is all about how a junior artist always wishes to become a superstar and believes in his wish. He dies trying to save his love but in his next birth, he gets every single thing that he used to think of and repeat over and over to his friend. the aforementioned dialogue means that if we heartily wish  something, then the whole universe tends to give it to you.
This very concept, we see in The Secret, which is a compilation of revelation of various people including some really big and famous heads, how their life changed when they followed THE SECRET.
All you had to do was to think and think and think about your wish and TADA, you will accomplish that.
So, the thing is what to do, which film to opt.
Well, i would go with OSO. It, at least has some good songs and of course Shahrukh.
What’s your say?
P.S. – Kunal Sir, I am sorry.(if ever you read this)

my mummy’s sopa de tomate!

For past few days, every evening I make tomato soup for my mother.
The reason, she thinks that it helps to improve her appetite and the cause through which she found it was that one fine day, my father thought of making tomato soup just for fun in his leisure time. his leisure became my tedium. :p
Well, it won’t last long, if considered her previous such practices.
She took to exercise once in which she was very regular, skipping every other day for no reason. This lasted for an entire fortnight. Too long a time compared to her ‘after dinner walks’ which ceased in two days. haha!!
Last winter, she took amla (indian gooseberry) juice, which ended soon followed by all vegetable juice.. YUKK..
Well , lets see how long the tomatoes remain on her chart!
And it seems that I am totally following her example. ( After all heredity is some thing :p)
Its my record too that I can’t keep any of my resolution more than a month. I have tried studying sincerely from the school’s first day(which I always have failed disastrously), using paper bags, look after the very few plants that i have (at present, none of them can be called alive) and the biggest one is the fact that my longest job was of 2 and a half months ( either I leave or they fire me).
But whatever it may be, I enjoy my and my mother’s ineffable actions..

‘EVERYBODY’S SOMEBODY, NOBODY’S NOBODY IN DELHI’, quoted this line from the movie NO ONE KILLED JESSICA. Well, the situation goes not just for DELHI but for the whole country.
Anywhere and anytime, either you say “do you know who i am” followed by names of some bigheads or you fail to get your work done. The irony is that 90 percent of the holders of the names mentioned may not have done anything worth mentioning or perhaps anything, let alone worth mentioning. They are the ones with huge money, tiny conscience and a political whip in hand.
Any task form getting an affidavit signed to a property deal, needs to be accompanied by a bundle of notes or names. No need for yet another long lecture on the corruption in India. This is the Indian way and this is the way we live. All I want to know is..
Is there no way out??
If there is, what is it??
And when the ruddy hell will it be trodden upon ??

to hell w!th the mot!vational stuff..

every time i read and try to follow, some book or article intended to uplift your morale, the so called motivational and inspirational stuff, it really helps, if not to lift me up, surely to push me down, distress me to a greater degree.
how come it happens that once some fellow has success under his feet and the whole world behind him that he becomes fearless enough to speak up his follies
and who knows what fraction is revealed because greater the success, bigger are the compromises with one’s conscience.
the world around is enough to make you feel sorry for all your actions and make you feel depressed for what you are NOT..
so why this extra stuff.
they say after break up, wish your love a happy life but practically how many us have the hearts to wish that. a wounded heart can’t think of all the godly deeds you should, but the ones that you don’t follow.
even if you don’t do anything to harm him/her, any cause for their distress brings peace to your mind and this remains a fact no matter how much you deny.
when we are rejected from the jobs that we want to do or from the wishes that we cherish, then who, in this world thinks the crap like ‘doesn’t matter, I’ll keep trying or it surely will lead to success someday’
who is able to stop their tears and get along, without crying themselves to sleep.
all we can think then, is that life is not worth, what the hell are we living for or simply try to seek solace in the virtual world created by the net, the drugs or the wine.
so myself came to the conclusion that its my life, no matter how depressing and dull, it may seem
cuz i don’t know what other elite ones have paid to get there where i admire them, what dreary facts they are hiding, what secrets they are sitting upon.
so to hell with all the stuff that, rather than giving encouragement, discourages me. define my own way to success
try to follow it
if i can’t, which knowing my past record, m sure that i won’t, simply try to think of some other interesting way and follow it.
why not do what i think is right no matter how crazy or weird others may consider it.
so to hell with the inspirational crap..
to hell with the people around..
and welcome lyff…

The First Ones..

The first one..A phrase which almost every one of us has not just used or heard or read but has lived. So, here’s to my first blog. Didn’t know where to start and what to write, so thought why not just dedicate the first one to the memory of some of the first ones of our life..

First day in school coz i don’t remember anything before that, :p
I was crying standing in front of the building where i was to spend time laughing and kicking..

First friend: Didn’t knew how to define a friend. Don’t know even now but ’twas something special, one with whom I was to, am and will always share my stupidity and all the devilish pranks..

First love proposal which I myself didn’t experience but which I’ve experienced more than anything in life. During high school and college days, everybody was in love, so had enough of all such scenes, the “ooooh, he is so smart” and “aah, here she comes” and the YESs and the NOs.

First Job, First Boss, First Salary: This I’ve had enough experience. Have done so many jobs(but never stayed more than a month or two) but nothing compared to the first ones. Was so docile and obedient, did whatever task boss gave and a truly sincere one. The first salary was like, like the world at your feet. You having your own earnings, nothing comparable to that..

So, these are some of The First Ones that I could remember,  but would love to add to the list..
