Saab, Delhi se aye ho kya?

Living in the city other than your native, is totally amazing experience. One should try once in a lifetime to live in different city, out of the comfort zone. For me Living in Mumbai is not that tough, it depends on what decisions you take, whether it is choosing a place to stay, or choosing a mode of transport from office to home. I generally prefer Auto rather than bus, it saves time and energy. If Auto is not available, I prefer taxi rather than waiting for Auto. So, it all depends on how you manage little things in life. But yes, it is tough to live away from your family. I miss the tasty home made food.

So, on that other day, I was going towards metro station. I asked the banana seller how much for a dozen. It was some 30 bucks for a dozen. I chose to have 4 bananas for Rs. 10, and started eating there. While I was eating, I asked him don’t you keep Masaala? (a mixture of salt and spices). First he looked at me totally surprised like I asked his kidney, then he asked “Saab, Delhi se aaye ho kya?”. Me without being offended of being a Delhiite asked: “Haan, kyu masaala kya sirf delhi wale hi khaate hein?
Aur kya saab, yahan agar Masaala laga ke bechunga, to mujhe maarenge aur

Hmm, then I concluded, it is like selling Milk with mixing water in it. But anyways, I completed my last banana, and went off.

Mumbai or Bombay?

So, finally I'm in Bombay. I still call it Bombay, it reminds me the old time when I was so attracted to this city. Whenever I heard about this city, Indian film industry, tall buildings, city of richest people, it's night life, beaches, created the zest for coming to Bombay, my eagerness and my attraction towards this city was growing since childhood. I used to see it in movies, serials and other media. And finally in 2016 I'm here. Liking to so much, easy life, everything is up to date. I've met good people so far, they are really helpful, soft spoken, and they respect your decisions. I've met number of people while searching for a good accommodation, So many stories for each of the broker :) they are funny enough to mention in blog posts. So, I've decided to share the experience I had with them, not in this post but very often.

Usne mujhe bye kyu bola? ;-)

This was the time when we (YMCA classmates) used to have fun all the time. Once a week, we used to visit a place somewhere around Delhi. And the best part of this was that it was always impromptu, it was never pre-planned. We never planned it, these decisions were always on the spot decision "chal aaj wahan ghoomne chalte hein".

So, once we decided to visit Kalkaji Temple. Now I'm gonna tell you the incident which always brings a smile on my face. I was sitting behind Ravi and Sandeep. The bus was not crowded so I was alone on two seats. On the left row Anuja and Chetna were sitting, they both were chatting the usual girl stuff while I was getting bored of sitting alone. I thought of sitting on the seat next to where the girls were sitting. Suddenly an old man with two little girls came and sat on that seat. One of them was so cute. They started playing ABCD with each other. Girl A (the prettier one) said A for apple B for boy C for cat D for dog and E for...?? She suddenly forgot what E was for and she looked at me as I was looking at her. I enact in a way that E for Elephant without telling her, just by lifting my arm as nose, she laughed first then understood and shouted ELEPHANT. Everybody looked at her, Ravi, Sandeep, Anuja and Chetna. But they didn't know that I was actually talking to that little girl without speaking. Then Girl B started 1.. 2.. 3... again Girl A was looking at me, I was pointing my fingers in a counting way, she was actually singing the numerals, though she was smart enough to remember the counting but still she was continuously looking at my finger as my fingers were moving in sync with her voice. She laughed and smiled many times at the way I was talking to her, seeing this  her guardian stared back at me, so I turned my face towards the window. I was actually enjoying her smile. If she were teenage girl somebody would have accused me for flirting her. Then their stop came and they stood up to get off the bus. As they began to walk forward, Girl A turned back and said "Bye" to me and waved her hand. Now my friends who didn't know what was going on looked surprised.

"Wo ladki tujhe bye bol rahi thi?" Ravi asked with surprise.
"Tu janta hai usko?" This time Sandeep threw the question.
Chetna asked: "Fir wo tujhe bye kyu bolke gayi?"

I couldn't tell them the whole story so I just gave one answer. "Ye andar ki baat hai :)"

This incident happened back in 2008, but the funny thing is my friends still don't know ki usne mujhe bye kyu bola ;-)

Resolution 2012

My Resolution for the coming year is “to blog more”

Yes, I want to start continue blogging, cuz I’ve very few posts as compare to my 3 years of blogging career. I’ve lot’s of topic in my mind. So, coming year would be full of posts here.

Although I never take resolutions, as I don’t drink, never smoke, nor I’ve any other bad habit, so there’s nothing I need to avoid. I’m really happy with my life J , then why taking resolution this year?

So the thing is, I want to explore more, I want to live more, I want to grab more, and I feel blogging can help me to achieve these things by discussing life lessons with bloggers.
I’m feeling some happiness in my heart for the coming year, there’s few reasons behind it. One is this is a Leap year, and by now every leap year has been good for me as I can count some milestones of my life in the past leap years. When I look back those were great years of my life, I felt more energetic, more confident, and more satisfied. But I’m also looking for the thing that how can I make my every year as good as leap year.

Second is I’m planning some improvement plans in myself, like Quick decision, taking responsibilities of little things in my life. And more over I want to reduce the time between thinking and doing. As of now I think too much and do nothing, as a great man said: “Thinking without doing is a Daydream, and doing without thinking is a Nightmare”
So, coming year would definitely be my best year cuz I’m focusing on doing more than just thinking.

I also feel there’s no such date for taking resolutions, we can decide anytime, like if we want to try new things then we should go and do it, if anything we know is harmful or bugging us we should avoid it immediately, that’s it. We have to be little strict to our self. As we say in hindi: “Jab jaago tabhi saveraa”

Btw, I’d request you all to drop your comment for your resolutions of this year, I’d be glad to hear you. Even if you didn’t take any resolution, you can at least write what you feel after reading this. I’m sure you must be thinking something worth sharing, you are most welcome!

Jo dikhta hai woh bikta hai

Indian Film Industry is quite disappointing me for last few months, I mean kuch movies ko chod kar agar baat karein to kya bakwaas movies ban rahi hein. Just baseless movies.
Although direction is good, dialogues are good even music direction could be quite ok. But they are just like walls without base and roof. I consider the story as base and climax as roof, Most of the movies are lack of these basic elements.
And yet for every third movie they think to getting Oscar, I mean what's going on to our Story writers? And why Yash Chopra didn't bring hope after veer zaara?
Are we running out of talented writers? or they are not brought up? I can count number of bullshit movies, for example:

Yamla Pagla Deewana.
Comedy good, dialogues good, music excellent, star cast good. But story bullshit, climax quite disappointing. Sach mein yaar isse acha to comedy circus dekh lo.

Same thing for No Problem movie. Another example is Tees Maar khan. Not to speak of "Golmaal 3" This movie was only made to proove that there is it's first part and still better than all sequals.
Hiss dekh ke to vomit karne ka man karta hai, what a **** movie was that? Have they gone mad or what?
Patiala House ko hi dekh lo, I mean they really think kisi bhi 4-5 movies ki story ko ek sath mila do acha sa music de do film hit. Aur kuch movies to hit bhi ho jati hein,

Are our audience dumb? or they just watch whatever is going on the screen.
Tanu weds Manu, Movie chahe kaisi bhi ho... Packing aisi karte hein ki gift dene wala aur lene wala dono proud feel karte hein. Jab unwrap karo to there's nothing more than crap.

I mean ek taraf "Welcome" and "Hey baby" jaise excellent example and dusri taraf "Housefull" and "Khatta-meetha". Action Replay ke bare me to bolne ki zarurat hi nahi hai. Ye to aisi movie hai, I can surely say while doing the movie Akshay and aishwarya would have quite sure that movie will not run well, I mean they are not fool, no body is fool, then why they make such horrible movies? cast & crew work for money only? Director do his job and went away? I'm not getting the freaking idea of making useless movies.

Ravan based on Ramayana, Rajneeti based on Mahabharata. I mean really yaar inko bolo ki kahin ilaaj karwayein seriously.

Dabang bhi bakwaas. Ye movies sirf dialogues and music ki wajah se chal jati hein, on the other hand

"Wanted" was excellent movie in terms of Story, Climax (I loved it), music and of course dialogues.

3 idiots is quite good, based on strong story and stylish climax.

Band baja baarat & Do dooni char had different track of stories.

Love aaj kal was EXCELLENT movie.

But on the other hand there's "I hate love story" and "Break ke baad" made-to-burn movies.

Anyways my point is: I can't believe while making such kind of horrible movies they don't assume of their result, of course they'd know cuz they are the movie makers here for years and yet they make baseless movies, why?

Or they are just following the Indian attitude of selling...
Kabhi Naye Packet mein bechein tum ko cheez purani.... Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani.... Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani.
