Abhishek Bachchan still searching for Beti B's name



Abhishek Bachchan still searching for Beti B's name

As fans eagerly wait for Beti B's naamkaran, new B-Town daddy Abhishek Bachchan is still struggling to finalise a name for his daughter.

The Bachchan family welcomed the baby girl on November 16. Since then, Bachchan junior has asked fans to suggest names for the new member on a micro-blogging site.

"The suggestions still pour in and still we haven't managed to finalise a name. Evenings are spent reading out all your suggestions in front," Abhishek posted on his Twitter account.

"Of the family and trying to decide. Will decide soon. Many thanks again. Lots of love," he further tweeted.

Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan is busy hosting well wishers.

"A host of visitors for the baby and the joy and blessings they leave behind ... thank you. The name suggestions keep coming in," he tweeted.

Bachchans on Beti B


"We are very happy. Goddess Lakshmi has come to our family and we have brought Lakshmi ratna home. We are happy to have a daughter. This is what Abhishek and Jaya wanted," said Amitabh Bachchan who brought his new-born granddaughter to his home Jalsa on Tuesday.

The baby girl looks like her mother. "I think she resembles Aishwarya, but you know that children change and some people in the family think she has some resemblance to Abhishek," added Big B.

Abhishek on daughter: "She's very sweet, obedient and very cooperative. Shant hai, zyada roti nahi hai(She's quiet and doesn't cry much)."

Amitabh Bachchan regrets Sachin Tendulkar missing his 100th ton



Amitabh Bachchan regrets Sachin Tendulkar missing his 100th ton


The whole of India is waiting for the little master Sachin Tendulkar to get his 100th century and so are our Bollywood celebrities! And when the master missed the century today by a narrow margin and gave away his wicket at 94, Amitabh Bachchan, Arjun Rampal and Farhan Akhtar could not help feeling sad!

Amitabh Bachchan wrote: “Oh dear ! Believe Sachin out on 95 ! Heartbroken ! Ah well another day maybe .. We'll wait !” However, when he realized that he had mentioned the wrong score, he wrote: “Correction : out on 94 !! Still heartbroken, but full of hope and conviction that he shall get there someday !!”

Farhan Akhtar wrote: “Sad about sachin getting out on 94 but the Aussie tour now has an added edge to it... And to get it there, will be priceless!!”

Arjun Rampal’s tweet read: “Oh no Sachin, damn, so close. Wish u that 100 asap”

And as much as we are sad about Sachin not getting his century, we are sure he’ll get it soon! And as Salman Khan says in Dabangg: “There ij always a furst time, and there ij always a next time.”

Big B to release Aadesh’s `Sound of Peace`



Big B to release Aadesh’s `Sound of Peace`


Mumbai: Bollywood music composer Aadesh Srivastav has cut an album titled `Sound of Peace`, a unique initiative that talks about peace and co-existence of all communities across the world. 

On the third anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Amitabh Bachchan will be launching this album that is dedicated to the movement against terrorism at the studio of an FM station.

The legendary actor has also lent his voice for the album. `Sound of Peace` is the first of its kind as it has patrons of music from across the globe and the list includes Akon, Ustad Rashid Khan and Wyclef Jean. The very famous London Philharmonic Orchestra also features in the album.

Aadesh wanted to come up with something unique that could erase the boundaries of caste, colour and creed and unite one and all under a common roof- the world. And what better than music could help realise his dream. 

Here’s wishing success to Aadesh Srivastav and `Sound of Peace`.

Rajini, Amitabh laud Dhanush's Kolaveri

Rajini, Amitabh laud Dhanush's Kolaveri


Two top icons of Indian cinema, Superstar Rajinikanth and Big B Amitabh Bachchan, have appreciated Dhanush for penning and crooning 'Why this kolaveri....' the '3' song which has become a craze all over India.

Happy about this development, Dhanush, the 'poetu' and 'singeru', says, "It was so kind of the Big B to listen to our song and congratulate us for it. We all are great admirers of him and his words mean a lot to every one of us."

On the reaction from Rajini, his father-in-law, Dhanush says, "The Superstar is very thrilled. He is so happy about the song becoming such a hit. He is proud that Aishwarya has come out of his shadow and has carved a niche for herself in the industry."

The song that came out just days ago has already notched up more than 3 million hits and its fan following includes the young and the old, the commoner and the celeb crowd.

Seldom has any song created such a craze with over 8.2 M links shared on networking sites in less than a week, a Sony Music statement said.

A deep yawn before I start to push buttons is not the most welcome sign


Jalsa , Mumbai              Nov 25,  2011                 Fri  11 : 45 PM
  A deep yawn before I start to push buttons is not the most welcome sign … at least for a beginning. There is though the argument that ‘even though I yawn, it indicates that I am at least awake’. Yes I am awake. Awake to all that goes around, within and without. Within has that tendency to remain within. Without is without doubt, for it is present and live and noticed and commented upon and argued.
I am happy that I do not have much without, and much within. My strength to argument and debate is weak. My debate within is more attuned to reason and logic. Without, it gets injected by polluted thoughts not worthy of argument. Speaking out the within is not in nature. Speaking out the without, unworthy of expression.
It is a tolerable state. A state of discipline and reserve and patience. Not many claim its purity. But I do. Better to laugh within than allow others to laugh without. Its a generous state to be in, difficult to pursue, but fruitful when followed. Fruitful to me that is. All may not want to endorse this and in a free and democratic world, it is permissible. Each individual must exercise their individual franchise, bought or unbought !

The gym is a regular now, more so because there is complacency creeping in in the absence of work. A quick drive through the streets to the facility, through early morning risers, through traffic light breakers, through disregard to laws in automobile regulations, past zebra crossings where its literal meaning is paid greater heed to, to mankind walking in the opposite direction of your travel on the wrong side of the road immersed in mobile conversation … ahh ! who cares !! Call attention to their errors and get an abuse in return or a folded hand gesture to be spared of the mistake. Mistake ? I think not. You need to follow a rule to make one. But when you do not follow where the question of mistake. The rule is your own interpretation of it. So bless you and may you survive the unfortunate repercussions of a God forbid situation. There are never any concerns for that because, they would be safe, the driver and vehicle would not. They would be set fire upon and blamed for drunken or reckless driving.
But one tries to set example by following at a lone position what everyone else must and does not. Those driving past look at you in queer mode. But heaven help if we were to be caught breaking rule and regulation. It is the arrogance of celebrity they would state, their ego and self imposed culture !!
The news as you flash past on the tread mill during the cardio resembles a tale of unimaginable proportions. The topics, the background score, the slow motion emphasized shots, the accusatory tone of the anchor and the final verdict on the mobile service that phones in to the question put forward. All in line with a well crafted Shakespearean play that envelops one and refuses to free you and your mind.
The dub for an endorsement follows for FORCE ONE, the SUV from Force Motors which I have worked on with the Oscar nominated Shekhar Kapoor and soon after as I trundle out, the information that Sachin has missed his 100th hundred by a mere 6 runs !! Pain and disappointment ! But hope that it shall happen soon – perhaps in Australia where they play next.
Technology takes over next – mobile transfers, lap tops, digital cameras – and the need to understand each aspect in this fast moving world, where your grandson overpowers you with his knowledge and makes you look archaic and used beyond any use !! And then the baby ! Still, asleep, in her own dreams and smiles of gentle joy of what she sees …
There are visitors too. Important ones. Ladies and friends and later an entertainment for them through ‘Why this Kolaveri Kolaveri Kolaveri di’, the instant rage from Dhanush and Aishwarya – son in law and daughter of Rajnikant – in the music lab, belting out the most simple and fun and catchy number in recent times. A TamilEnglish wonder !! Glory be !!

” Hurry up Balki !!” I yell, as he wanders in to see the new born, ” before I lose all that I have “. Another month he says and after a delightful and fun filled dinner of anecdotes and recent film release result assertions, I am before you in stable and congenial condition to seek absence now, or face the wrath of my medical team that insists that I be under the lights and quilt and sheets and pillows, somewhat rapidly !!
Did you ever realize what a great deal of inconsistent rubbish I write on this platform. If you have not it is time that you did ….
Good Night …

Got this on my mobile among so many other gifts of names for the little one


Jalsa , Mumbai             Nov  24 ,  2011               Thu  11 : 23 PM
चूहे ने किया शेरनी को propose ,
गिफ्ट दिया उसने रेड rose
शेरनी ने कहा जा पहले अपनी सूरत आइने में देख ,
चूहा बोला सूरत पे मत जा पगली confidence तो देख !!!!
Got this on my mobile among so many other gifts of names for the little one. Little does she know what she has started. She sleeps through most of the day except for feeds and has been most obedient and well behaved ! Ha ha ha !!
The search for the name does intensify now and each spare moment we go through hundreds of them, including some rather odd ones as well .. eg Rochelle’s sister suggested with an A : Anonymous !!
I shall leave that one for you to comment on !!
Time goes by and my routine that has till now been devoid of any void is suddenly finding itself free and spare. The baby does take up cause and interest and time but never of any length. The moments spent with her even though one encounters shut eyes, are the most pleasant and fulfilling, but what after. I think there is an indication here to take up vocations that one has always wanted to pursue – that music lesson, language … reading to catch up … and on …
Sitting out in the sun today after what seemed like ages, one felt the need of exposure. Of the breeze and the heat on the face, changing colors of the skin in sun burn shades, perspiration to open up the pores, the feel of the wet grass under bare feet, the fragrance of the flowers – the little that Mumbai with all its surroundings permits. There is need to clean up tables full of paper work. letters and documents and the odd artifacts and material that one collects with each trip, or each day. There is a heartlessness in tearing or shredding them. That sound of the tear or the machine grinding it to little shreds is harsh. It almost speaks as it were in desperation on why this hellish treatment. I would sympathize with that and it gives me reason to store and collect and not destroy what once comes in – that envelope, the ribbon on a package, a letter hand written in the day of laptops and computers, a card, that hurried note on a piece of the Hotel paper napkin … all so deserving of being given a proper and dignified berth in my home or on my desk and drawers. They say a clustered room demonstrates a clustered mind … really ?? Mine must fall into that category and up in the charts. But really … clustered ?? Hmmm …
Why this kolaveri kolaveri kolaveri di .. Ahh … just not leaving the lips and the mind and the system .. such an endearing experience. Brings a smile and laughter and rhythm instantly to the face .. get to YouTube, type Dhanush and Kolaveri di .. its his latest song that has become a rage all over.
Dhanush, son-in-law of Rajnikant a young brigade superstar in Tamil Cinema married to Aishwarya, Rajni’s daughter.. its loverly …
Kolaveri .. Tamil for rejected lovers rage, in a sweet way .. now getting used as verbiage in almost any walk of life, social, political …every where !! tremendous !!
Ok gotta go … kolaveri beckons  .. see ya ..

She is home ! And nothing could give us all greater joy and happiness Bigb


Jalsa , Mumbai           Nov  22 ,  2011                Tue  11 : 41 AM

फुल्ल कमल ,
गोद नवल ,
मोद नवल ,
गेह में विनोद नवल  |
नवल दृश्य ,
नवल दृष्टि ,
जीवन का नव भविष्य ,
जीवन की नवल सृष्टि  |

She is home ! And nothing could give us all greater joy and happiness .. There is so much to say and so much emotion, but I think excerpts from my Fathers poem, written at the time I was born, say enough !

Best to leave it at that ..

Amitabh Bachchan
