Love AAJ KAL !!

I love the song “yeh durian” from love AAJ KAL
The song is a usual musical treat lamenting the distance and love.
I have known the lyrics more or less by heart for the past 5 years. However, driving playing the song on full blast, singing along, I had an eureka! moment regarding the depths that the song touches.

Kabhi hua yeh bhi
Khali Rahon pe bhi
Tu tha mere saath

Kabhi tujhe milke lauta
mera dil yeh khali khali haath
Yeh bhi hua kabhi
Jaise hua Aabhi
Tujhko sabhi mein paa lia

The above set a para in a short sweet summary of relationships.

There were times when you were the only one with me, while I walked alone.
There were time, when I needed you and you gave me nothing.
There were times, just like now when i seen your face in everyone around……….

Dantewada..who is to blame?

Arundhati Roy’s interview on CNN IBN was an eye opener for a person like me, whose knowledge about the Maoists problem doesn’t go beyond the half cooked ill researched and sometimes politically influenced stories fed to us by the Indian English news channels.
When viewed in isolation Dantewada( as i did before i saw that interview) all the blames lies with the Maoists . Surely there is no apt reason to kill 76 men , but when you push a community of a 100,000 to the brink, such instances will happen.
When asked why she romanticised the view of a 16 year old girl carrying a gun. Her answer was that she wished that it had never come to the day that she viewed such an instance in positive light, but she’d rather see her carrying a gun than getting raped by a CRPF jawan.
I agree with her when she says that we live in a fake democracy. We live in a country where there is a democracy, but only for the rich and the middleclass. No, such concept exists for the poor and the marginalised.
How can such violence be justified?
“Non violent protest works only of you have an audience. In the forest you don’t have any”

Though the full interview is not available on the net at present ill post it as soon as I can get my hands on it.

Oftentimes I have hated in self-defense; but if I were stronger I would not have used such a weapon.-khalil Girban


Do I want to do this??no man don’t be crazy. Its cazy at best..said a part of me as I took a u turn to take the route towards her house. Why am I doing this ??u cant get anything good out of this… I stopped the car by the road side….stop u idiot. It wouldn’t do me any harm would it.. I turned the key stepped on the gas off I was again.

I parked the car a block away from her apartment building to gather some courage. Looked at the phone …probably I should call her..i scroll down to her name she going to pick up the phone , no she doesn’t have this number…I press call. Then disconnect the call before it rings..come on man u don’t want go through the same trauma again. It’s taken you eight months to get this far don’t ruin yourself. ..I call her again. She picks up the phone “hello who is this”….(silence)….” Hey hi”…..(silence)…..”hey kaisa ha”..”I’m great ha ha ha(awkward laugh), tu bata”-----small talk-------“ where are you”..” a block away from your apartments can you meet me”..”ill come down but I’ll leave soon ive got to go to somewhere” ..”ok”…god I should'nt have done this .. don’t man don’t leave,leave when there is still time.
