Padmavat

After three hours of glossy, bulky sub drama, a graceless one on one battle between Maharawal and Khilji comes to an end followed by the animated climax.

Bhansali has been as disappointing as ever, mysteriously again failed to make it a point to answer the question – why this movie ?

Wrong choice of characters, Maharaval more than a king was looking like a security guard of Chittor fort and Khilji- not sure what was expected out of him, an eunuch himself with Shutarmurgh, or a Monkey or a Bear. More than controversy on Maharani – and Rajput’s getting annoyed, it should be Brahmins (the way Raghav Chetan was treated) and Musician’s (the way conversation on Raag Yaman went), who should object and request a ban on this visual.

Except for shots on Singhal Pradesh during initial 10 mins and Khilji’s monkey dance post interval, audience had been wanting and missed the scenes made for 3D.

With all this high drama before the movie release, Bhanasali again successfully gets audience to watch another of his movies.

However at the end Art wins again and loads of congratulations from the art lover to an artist Bhansali  for courage, showmanship,  believing in himself .

Ashwatthama

हज़ार टुकडों में बट गया हूँ मैं,
कुछ इधर कुछ उधर ….
नाम के लिए जी रहा हूँ,
हज़ार सालों से, सदियों से

मैंने जैसे खून से लथपथ कपडे पहने है ..
आसुओं के धागों से बुने हुए…..
नीली नूरी ख़ामोशी से सनी हुई तलवार
आरपार हुई है मेरे चेहरे के परखच्चे उड़ाते हुए ….~नूर

The Journey

Ek lamhe main simat gaya hai sadiyon ka safar..
Zindagi tej..bohot tej chali ho jaise..
Ummeed se jyada hi mila hai aksar
Haathon se sab kuch choo liya ho jaise..
Kyun nahi milta sukoon-e-dil tu bataa e NOOR magar..
Fir bhi bohot sara jeene ki kwahish ho jaise…

Vidwan Dr BalaMuraliKrishna

 

Vidwan Dr BalaMuraliKrishna is no more. I am not capable enough to say if he is one of the greatest musicians who lived on this earth. Though his ever smiling face while effortlessly rendering vocal music ( I didn’t see him play Mridangam or Violin yet, which knowledgeable people say he had same mastery over), his establishment of definition of classical music – in terms of the music that passes the test of time, his voice full of emotion as if the God indeed is surrounding us and encouragement to find him within us through the sound, and above all a symbolic of beautiful river that flows between tradition to innovation, south to north, smile to bliss, composer to singer, performer to discoverer, and sound to spirituality with ease, will always keep inspiring us. Being a percussionist myself, Dr BalaMurali  has been the factor in my life to start searching for sound in my throat and motivating me enough to allow this sound to happen and follow the same. Incidentally this has taken me to be born again few days back, this time as a classical singer myself. Bowing down.

 

Blue and Gray

Miscommunication, gaps and confusion.Pakistan/LoC/Media/Surgical strikes, Reliance JIO and saga of telecom, Samsung Note 7 push and pull, Cauveri river issue, and  TCS Q results under the reigns of Mistry -beautifully explained by Mercury retrograde, becoming direct and Jupiter, Sun and Mercury in Virgo. Moon opposing trios in Pieces will create a nice force aligning spectrum, nations, states, and mobile phones towards oceans, tails, toes, Yellows and CHINA, and much more !

What is evil..

Its not evil, there is no evil, there is no darkness, when the light is not there it becomes dark that’s it, but nobody can create something that emits dark.. there is no dark, its absence of everything , something good – the truth is, there is no light, those who dislike something they are not evil, they just don’t know how to appreciate it, that’s all… a little awareness will make them appreciate good in the future, its can be called as ignorance or they just plainly lack wisdom knowledge. But there is no darkness, its just no light.

Jhamal jindagi

काय झमाल जिंदगी आहे…..
डॉक्टर ला वाटते तुम्ही आजारी पडावे….
पोलिसाला वाटते तुम्ही काही तरी गुन्हा करावा….
वकीलाला वाटते तुम्ही कुठेतरी कधीतरी कसतरी कायद्याच्या कचाट्यात अडकाव
एका इंजीनियर ला वाटत तुमच्या कडे चोरी व्हावी म्हणजे त्याचे design केलेले patented कुलूप विकावे
हे असे सर्व आहे विश्वविद्यालय चे शिक्षण ,परीक्षा पास होणे आणि झुंड मधले बोक्यान सारखे लाळ पाडने
आपल्या विश्वा करिता,तुमच्या degree बघून नाही जणू तुम्ही स्वतः ला बघून घेउन चालायचे , घ्यायची ध्यास कुणी का घेत नाही ??
असो .. मी आहे , परिभव , प्रदाह , भ्रम, भय हरवून घेऊन जायला … स्वरात , रंग टाकून सुमेरु संजीवनी ची मन्मदन बुटी नाकात टाकायला …
मी नूर यॆत आहे ।
