Nostalgic on a Bollywood movie

My younger angel- Ruhin would have heard the title song of the movie ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and was humming at home. I told her that the song belongs to a movie. She wanted me to play the movie for her. Thanks to Youtube where the full movie was available.

While my daughter was watching the movie streaming on my hand phone, I, sitting next to her was quick to check the year. It was in 1998 when this movie was released.

I had loved this romantic story due to glamour and romanticism showcased, quite similar to my stage of relationship with my spouse. We were in love but miles apart with no access to internet or hand phones. We could not see each other for months together.

My mind ventured further into details of those years of my life, trying to recall all the details as minute as possible. My memory could not help me with much details though.

I was soon nostalgic about the whole event of my relationship with my spouse and how we finally got to get married. Then I sensed that my brain was attempting to rationalise the years ‘lived’ thereafter.

All the major events that I could recall seemed to me as ‘random’ with no measured effort on my part to make them happen. This was a sincere attempt to decode my past life since we as humans are masters of rationalising our past lives akin to a perfect story unfolding with all ups and downs as being experienced my daughter while watching the movie.

She wept when the child in the movie could not speak on topic ‘Mother’ in some competition and was weeping when the lead actor- the father of the child – walks upto her speaking on her behalf and then gives her a tight hug.

My daughter leans further into my shoulders. As a parent I did not want to influence her flow of emotions nor interrupt it with usual banter- it’s just a movie with actors playing it to a script – followed by laughs irritating enough to spoil her flow of emotions.

While I had my own regrets for not being able to recall full details of my life unfolding in last 18 years, I pledged to make it memorable and record everyday of my life penned here on a blog or in a personal diary.

Jokes on demonetization in India

A week back on Nov 9 2016, the Prime Minister of India made an announcement about discontinuing the Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominated currency. This lead to a widespread reaction from citizens across the country. The existence black or parallel economy is a common knowledge amongst Indians and it’s quite widespread. It can safely be reasoned that even the salaried class who are believed having transparency the most in their incomes do have an inherited unaccounted wealth. 

The reaction was widely shared across the Whatsapp and other popular social media. I too had my share of contribution both to creating new jokes and laughs. I am listing the best jokes, in my opinion, that capture the announcement followed by the reaction of common man and impact in their lives.

1. Dosto Modi ki Shaddi karwao , Khali dimag shaitan ka ghar, Kisne socha tha ki laxmi poojan ke Baad , laxmi visarjan karna padega.

2. Modiji be kaha tha sab ke accounts mein Rs 15 lakh jamaa karwaaonga kis ko pata tha ke khud hee jamaa karwaenge

3. बुरे वक्त के लिए पैसे रखे थे, पर पैसो का ही बुरा वक्त आ गया

4. मारवाड़ी : 

_” भाई वो जो पाँच सौ उधार लिए थे वो देने आया हूँ…..!!!! ”

सिंधी :

*” कैसी बात करता है यार,*

*मैंने तो 400 ही दिए थे…..!!! ”*

5. एक कस्टमर चिकन खरीदने पंहुचा, दुकानदार से बोला भाईसाहब 1 किलो चिकन देना, इतने में मुर्गा बोला भाई साहब खुल्ले है तभी कटवाना मुझे । कभी 500, 1000 के चक्कर में मरवा दो मुझे

6. My client asked me this question today ? I have deposited 5 lakhs in wife’s account. Are you sure IT people will arrest my wife or should I deposit more?

7. बच्चा: ममी जल्दी बाहर आओ कोई दाढ़ी वाले बाबा आए है

ममी: अर्रे बेटा ये कोई दाढ़ी वाले बाबा नही तेरे पिताजी है। बैंक गये थे नोट बदलवाने…आज आए है…पाँव छू इनके

Learning to Exercise

It’s further 3 years now and I live by with every word written here by me. I have got better and better and happy with myself.

Celebrate Life

Exercising does not come naturally to most of us. A very subjective estimate may go like:
          – 90% never exercised and believe they do not need to;
          – 5% think only overweight needs to exercise;
         –  of the remaining 5% less than 1% is actually able to exercise and sustain it over a long period of time.
Exercising is a lifestyle issue and not a stop-gap arrangement as if under some medication to get desired results. Empirical research has always proved that optimal level of exercising strengthens both internal and external organs of human body. But despite all what is written, read and understood very few of us are able to introduce exercise as a permanent change in their lifestyle.
Last year, I began exercising after a gap of some 15 years…
