Saturday....Ulsoor Lake Walk!!! (Life is beautiful!!!)

Hey!!! luks like Im on a spree to blog....one more post for today...

The moment I updated my blog in the afternoon, I left to my room. Had tea and then got ready to go out. Beautiful weather...Saturday evening....drizzle...It was awesome!!!Past a week Im planning to take broadband connection for the laptop. So I went to Reliance n then to Airtel office to get the info. Boy!!! Its expensive. I was about to take Reliance...felt tat I m taking decision in haste. So collected the brochures so that I can compare the rates and then take a call. BTW I have diff options...like data card..mobile to net...

I visited Durga temple on my way. After tat I left to the ATM centre to draw some cash coz I ws penniless. Now Im rich...I have the money power:)It was just 6:00pm. Lot of time....so thought of goin to Ulsoor lake...long walk man!! but I enjoyed cuz I love walking. Before I entered the walkin zone near the lake I went to th Kodak studio to give the roll for development which is almost 2 years old...Gods grace the roll is ok..will be collecting the print tomorrow. Then I bought a pack of groundnuts...entered the walkin zone near the lake. Enjoyed the walk..gotta call from home in between..spoke to my mom(Walk the talk with mom). I sat for sometime on the edge admiring the lush green trees...the sparkling water...n the rodents(Rat)digging themselves into the soil....guess!!! they were playing hide n seek with each other.

It was 7:30pm. Time to go back to hostel. Before tat I visited Lord Ganeshas temple. it was beautifully decorated on the ocassion of Chaturthi. Finished Pooja and rushed to the hostel...lucky me got a rick on time. Had dinner just now. Im waitng for one of my friends to come online......

Tats it I guess!!! Will listen to music for sometime. Yeah!!! I missed out the morning stuff. I read couple of articles in Reader's Digest. Pretty good. Cleaned my room. Washed clothes. Im ready for Monday. I also got an invitation from my hostelmate. She invited me to join her at Sparks pub. But I didnt go. Wotever!!! I enjoyed the day...especially the evenings.

Overall it was a lovely day....Seriously!!! Life is so beautiful!!! Then why do we always complain??? We should be thankful to God for wot he has given to us and admire the god's gift. But the question is...Who the hell...How many of us take time to admire the things around us or atleast have time for ourselves!!!!!

Manoj Kumar....The Legend!!!!! ( A Snippet from his conversation)

Hi Everybody!!!! Guess....it's bin a long time....Since I have blogged...

Okies....lets start then....But hey!!! this post is l'il different coz I have never written something like this before...Its an experiment...


Today being Saturday wherein everybody is busy letin their hair down....here Im lying in my bed and busy tunin the radio...n my finger stops.....when my ears encountered a very familiar,powerful and charismatic voice...It Was Mr. Manoj Kumar..director, editor, producer, composer and a great actor...

He was on Meri Kahani,Meri Jabani. First I thought Im listening to him on Vivid Bharti..later on gotto knw...is on Radio City.

He started with....

"Meri Ek aank roti thi tho doosri aankh hastin thi"...I have seen ups and downs in my life...bin thru the rough as well as smooth phase of my life.

He was tellin his Kahani....Right from his childhood days he use to watch Dilip kumar's movies..a big fan of him. He was so innocent...One day he watched a movie starrin Dilip Kumar wherein he dies and the very next day...he went with his uncle to Watch 'Shahid' starring Dilip Kumar.He got confused and asked his uncle...Hey !!! he is Suraj n he is dead...(Suraj was his name in his prev movie). Hw can he be in Shahid? He is dead. His uncle told .... naaah beta!!! his name is Dilip Kumar...its written on the poster in urdu(Manoj Kumar studied in Lahore till 4th grade).Then he thought, Cinema is somethn great..people die and born....interesting!!!!

When he grew up, finally decided to leave to Mumbai. His family dint have any issues of him leavin to Mumbai to join movies...When he reached the studio in Mumbai, he was dumb struck to see everybody out there singing, dancing. For a moment he thought of goin back to his place.But..then he said to himself let us give it a shot....And that's how the journey started...

He acted in almost 7 movies as an old man...extras...then finally one of the director took him as a hero for his movie...he got 5 to 6 movies but nothing worked out...After all this....He got his final break..when he signed up for 'Hariyali aur raasta'...n his story of success continued thereafter.....

In between he says...Bahut kam log hotien hain,jinke sapne poore hotein hain..n mein khush naseeb hoon ki mein unmein se ek hoon...bhagwaan ka laakh laakkh shukra hain...

He had an affinity towards patriotic movies. Directed movies like Bhagat singh, Shaheed,Kranti....In the movie Bhagat singh...the song 'Mera Rangde basanti chola' the speciality of this song is... it was picturized first and then recorded.
As they dint have enough money they shot the song in Ludhiana Jail. He also shared his opinion on picturizing woman in the movies. He believes...if u show the hero doing vulgar things with the heroine in the movie...the audience loose respect for the heroine n hence should be picturized in a decent way.(Those days)


While he continued talkin....was playin songs from his movies too. Hariyali aur raasta, Zindgai ki tootein na yeh ladi...pyaar karle....,Hain preet jahan ki reet sadan...bharat ka rehne waala...Meri desh ki dharti....I ws really impressed by the way he was narratin his story...so thought of writing a post on Mr. Manoj Kumar...:)

His show ended at 3:00pm.

And while writing this post me listening to the songs on Radio city......
Quit playin games with my heart....Backstreet Boys, Ho gayi hain mohabbat tumse...
Hmmnnn....Shaam savere teri yaadein aati hain...O sanam.....Lucky Ali

Don’t Dance So Fast

When’s the last time you watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain as it tickled the ground?
Have you followed a butterfly’s erratic flight,
stood and gazed at the sun as it faded to night?

You had better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you rush through each day as if on the fly,
never catch up however you try?
When the day is done do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores running through your head?

You had better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Have you ever told your child, “We’ll do it tomorrow?”
And in your haste, not seen her sorrow?
Ever-lost touch, let a good friendship die
because you never had time to call and say “Hi”?

You had better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last.

When you’re running so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift just thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower.
Hear the music
Before the song is over.
