Why is it that?

There comes this time (My guess is that everyone gets to experience this once in a while) when you have all the resources and yet you don’t know what to do with those.
Simply said, its nothing serious though a random set of thoughts…in short, a rant:
Why is it that…I have this notepad open in my laptop which is right in front of me and also I’ve got all the time in this world, yet I don’t know what to write…
Why is it that…I am sitting on my terrace with music plugged into my ears, well past midnight and I have no clue of what I was looking into the dark span of a sky…
Why is it that…I have a camera in hand and do everything with it, except for clicking pictures…
Why is it that…I switch on the TV with some random channel and then pick up a newspaper to read…
Why is it that…I have huge bunch of friends and feel all alone…
Why is it that…I climb down my 3rd floor apartment and realize having forgotten to get something only after I reach the ground floor…not even on the way down….
Why is it that…I tend to bite my finger nails, when I’m actually not tensed or not at all nervous…
Why is it that…I sometimes get to experience happiness and have no ways to express it…
Why is it that…I sometimes get sad and become a sadist (for just a while, ofcourse.)…
Why is it that…I rarely get angry and become wild when I am actually angry…
Why is it that…I listen to a song and get stuck with it even after it bugs the people around me….
Why is it that…I get along very well with the gals and even get into unasked trouble with the same clan…
Why is it that…I start to rant and it never seems to end…

Phew…does all this or even more happen to all you guys or is it that…I get to experience things which I feel is common, but is actually not…if so, Why? 😦

Main…aur…tum…

Main kaise waqt bitau, meri har lamhon mein ho tum…
Main kaise kisi aur se baatein karu, meri har lafzo mein ho tum…
Main khush kaise rahu, har muskurahat mein ho tum…
Main ab kaise rou, har ashq mein jo ho tum…
Main kaise kuch karu, har ehsaas mein jo ho tum…
Main kaise tumhe bhoolu, jab mann ke har kone mein ho tum…
Main kaise kisi aur ko dekhu, jab har chehere mein ho tum…
Main kaise kisi aur ka intezaar karu, shaayad jo laut aaogi tum…
Main ab kaise raat ko sou, meri sukoon jo ho tum…
Main udaas kaise rahu, jab meri yaadon mein ho tum…
Main kaise kisi aur ko chahu, meri chahat toh ho tum…
Main kaise kisi aur ko apna kahu, meri pyaar jo ho tum…
Main jiyu toh kaise jiyu, meri har saans mein ho tum…
Main ab kaise Main rahu, yaar ab jo mere paas nahi ho tum??? 😦

Main Chala, Akela jo tha!! ;)

Main toh chala, doondte apne raah ko…
Chalta phira, jaane na kal kya ho! 🙂              
Manzil thi door, andhera sa tha…
Usko paane ki raah mein, akela jo tha!

Chalte chalte, katgayi raathe…
Har awaaaz ne yaad dilaadi uske baathe! 😉
Saansein leta raha, aasaan na tha…
Usko choone ki chaah mein, akela jo tha!

Kaash woh chalti mere saath…
Pakadne ko toh milta uska haath! 😛
Phir bhi main chalta raha, mushkil sa tha…
Lekin rokha nahi koi mujhe, akela jo tha! 😦

Abhi sochta hoon, milegi woh mujhe kabhi…
Kabhi maayoos ho jaata hoon sochte hue ki, kyun nahi abhi?
Main aage badtha chala, rastha anjaan sa tha…
Par woh mere liye hi bani hey, kyunki main akela jo tha! 😀

She…who was she??

I was standing under the vast dark sky…
It was well past midnight, weather being hot and dry!
With the power gone, darkness had taken charge…
I was alone on the road, with my life being at large!

The dog howled at everything that seemed to be new…
I just stood there staring at it, while the breeze blew!
I had no clue as to what to do, and where to wander…
What was I doing right there and then, were facts to ponder! 🙄

I thought I’ll head back to lie down at my abode…
Just then I heard a voice on the other side of the road!
I waited just where I stood to see the person under the dim light…
And then she came, right out of no where in the middle of the night! 😀

She appeared right behind the street-light, looking at my side…
Her beauty and charismatic smile left me with my mouth open wide!
As I approached near, I felt her slowly and silently disappear…
To my disbelief she was not what I thought, I could just see right through her!!! 😦

A lonely private peep at Sarkar Raj!!

I went to watch the movie Sarkar Raj today. Alone. Yes all alone. Things never tend to go the way we want them to happen, isn’t it? It didn’t go very well this time either!

<Flashback>
Wednesday 4th June:

I was in my cubicle when I got a call last wednesday noon from my roommate Nan and our conversation went somewhat like this:
Nan: Hello…
Me: Hey tell me…
Nan: I’m online now and will be booking for Sarkar Raj this weekend. Are u interested?
Me: Sure Man…Make it Sunday as Sunil has night shift on Saturday too. If he’s awake ask him if he’s interested.
Nan: Ya, he’s moving…wait i’ll ask…only the 11:45am show tickets are available.
Me: I am fine with it. Ask Sunil.
Some murmers I hear in the background.
Nan: He said he’ll be able to get up and come. So I’ll book 3 tickets.
Me: Sure dude. bye.
Nan: Bye man.

Saturday 7th June:

Me: So you’ll be able to come for the movie tomorrow na?
Sunil: Which movie? What time?
Me: Sarkar Raj at 11:45am…you didn’t know which movie??
Sunil: Hehe…No. Ok I’ll come.
Me: Ok I’ll wake you up at 10:30am. We have to leave atleast by 11am.
Sunil: No, wake me up at 10am instead.
Me: Ok done.

Nan: Hey da, I won’t be be able to come to the movie tomorrow as I have a dentist appointment.
Me: Great. Didn’t you know that before booking the tickets?
Nan: No man, I didn’t remember!
Me: Hmmm…

Today morning:

Me: Sunil, its 10am…get up…
Sunil: Hmmm…

I then went to take bath. And when I came back,

Me: Sunil, its 10:30am…get up soon..am ready!
Sunil: Hmmm…

Me: Hey its 10:45am, won’t you come to the movie?
Sunil: Hmmm…aaa…haann…
Me: Ok so I’ll have to go alone then.

</End of Flashback>

And so I called a few of my friends. Some didn’t pick, some were already out busy with their plans. One, before asking I got to know that she was on the way to office (on a sunday :roll:)!! I messaged a few, for which some refused (after getting to know the movie name) and some replied late! Hmmm…
So there I was all alone sitting in the corner seat of the theatre at 11:30am with a medium sized bag of popcorn with extra-butter and a medium large glass of fountain coke! Yet, alone amidst so many families and friends unknown to me.
Trailers of the forthcoming movies like Dashaavataaram and Dhaam-Dhoom were projected before the movie began exactly at 11:45am. And the moment the movie began, the feeling of being alone among the huge crowd faded. And when Abhishek came on screen with a dialogue like “Phir tumhaare jeene se kya fayda?” (Whats the use of you being alive then?) I totally forgot I had come alone.

The movie went smooth with some mind blowing dialogues… like:

Abhishek says with authority, “Soch kabhi marti nahi..” (The thought never dies)

Abhishek says to his side-kick, “Humaare yahaan galti aakri baar hoti hey” (At our place, a mistake happens only for the last time)

Abhishek again with, “Apne sharton pe chalne walon ko keemat chukani padti hey” (One who lives life on his own terms, will have to face his own fate one day)

Abhishek to Amitabh, “Door ke fayde ke liye nasdiki nuksaan bhoolna padta hey” (For long term benefits, we need to forget short term losses)

The side-kick utters, “Apne desh mein security rakhne se kya hota hey?” (In our country, whats the use of having security?)

Abhishek again to Amitabh, “Baba, sab kuch nijee hey” (Dad, everything is personal)

Abhishek to Aishwarya, “Faisle haalaathon se liye jaate hey” (Decisions are taken based on situations/circumstances)

Amitabh utters with disgust before his side-kick is shot, “Jo samajh nahi sakta, usse samjhaane se kya fayda?” (One who doesn’t understand, whats the use of trying to make him understand?)

Amitabh to Abhishek during one of their private conversations, “Jaan lena jurm hey, lekin sahi samay pe jaan lena Rajneethi” (Taking one’s life is a sin, but taking one’s life at the right time is politics)
And some dialogues being funny… like:

The villian is conscious about his surname being correctly pronounced with “Oora…nahi…Oora…” makes one laugh.

One villian says “Chota skirt nahi pehena chahiye…machchar ghuss jaata hey” (Should not wear short shirts, as mosquitoes might enter) and the other replies wittily “Nahi toh bhi ghuss jaata hey” (otherwise also it gets in)!!

And one real shocker of a moment when a bomb planted in the car blows up when Tanisha (Abhishek’s wife in the movie) says “AC on kijeeye please”…Bhoooom!!

Amitabh Bachchan is made to cry in this movie for quite a few considerably long shots. His image of “An angry young man” could take a beating.

It looses one point for its relatively weak set of negative characters (villians) compared to the first part (SARKAR)!
The second point cos at some points the camera usage is so disturbingly handled. For instance, the camera is still when a bomb blast occurs while it keeps hovering around unnecessarily for no reasons in some of the scenes!
So over-all I would rate this movie at 3 out of 5. 😀

Finally at 2pm when Aishwarya blurted out “Ek glass chai please” (One cup of tea please) to signal its time to go home and have tea, I came out with a smile on my face…I remembered quite a few dialogues myself and had typed the ones I had liked but hard-to-remember-ones on my cell editor for future remembrance! 😉

SARKAR RAJ in case you have already watched SARKAR is a must watch! 😀
