I was born today ! 11th of October 1942 in Allahabad in a small private maternity outfit run by a missionary Dr Brar, in the most crowded market area of the city, Katra. I was brought home by my parents in the best possible transport machinery that they could afford – a tonga ! Wrapped in a ‘gudari’ I still refer to many that I am a ‘gudari ka lal’ – a human that is affiliated with the cheapest form of clothing. I loved being in that form and still love it. I have noticed on many occasions that the life and the style of those that live in such conditions, is closest to me in temperament. There is a certain sense of attachment every time I come in close contact with people and circumstances that narrate to me stories of the time. That is my most alluring possession. The complete ease that I feel and identify with when in the company of those that inhabit those lands.

As I step into the 70′s unabashedly, I need to thank several of those that I feel were the ones that seemed distressed with the number of my age. But no they are not so ! When they speak of age and involvement, why must we only look upon the aged, onto those that show the ravishes of time and the hunger of recognition. I would imagine that we must let the world be as it is and allow whatever shape it desires to take vis a vis individuals.
I have only just returned from KBC and it has been a grueling day, apart of course from the fact that tonight there were several from the blog that adorned the front rows of the audience, and what a pleasure it was to be in their company. The zip and the zane went up several notches higher knowing that they were there and there in support.
I has spoken about my experience on the Tv about the serial I saw and the artists of which I admired. The serial was ‘Bade Achche Lagte Ho’ and the artists were Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar. Original, relaxed meaningful and competent. Last night they were down on the set of KBC and playing for a charity that was going to help the poor of cancer, and to be able to build a center for paraplegics. Such warmth and such a delight to be in their company. Natural, relaxed and without a glimmer of their star status, they seemed to have impressed all in their assessment of me.
I must to bed now. I have a busy day tomorrow … and the morrow and the morrow and the morrow !!
Love to all

  3. जन्म दिन पर फूल बरसाए देवी- देवता
    माथे पर तिलक लगाये भारत की हवाए ,
    नई मुश्कान की लहर दौड़े मन मष्तिक पर ,
    आज आप पिता और पोती के बीच रहे ,
    करुण भाव हमेशा रहे , मानव कल्याण का ले
    संकल्प , आप जब बिहार आये मुझ से हाथ जरुर मिलाये |
    नव वर्ष नव जीवन .....नया संकल्प ,
    जितनी संख्या हैं सितारों की,
    आपके जीवन में खुशियाँ हो इतनी |
