एक मामुली सा पेड है वह
सुनसान बंजर जमीन पे
वक्त के थपेडे खाता
बस एक मामुली पेड
पत्ता पत्ता सूख रहा है
और तेज हवा
पत्तों को पेड से अलग करती
एक-एक शाख को नंगा करती
कुछ समय पुर्व
माहौल कुछ अलग था
हर शाख थी हरी भरी
पत्ता पत्ता खीला हुआ
दूर कही से पंछी आया
थका हुआ सा पनाह लेने
हरा भरा देख उस पेड को
वही घरोंदा कर बैठा वो
प्रातः से सांज तक
उस पंछी की चहचहाहट
एक नयी उमंग भर देती
नये नये ख्वाब संजोकर
वक्त गुजरा, मौसम बदला
सुखे का मौसम आया
हर पल एक पत्ता
लेता गया अपने साथ
देख यह, वह पंछी घबराया
कडी धूप वो न सह पाया
निकल पडा उस पेड को छोड
तलाश में एक नया पेड
मायुसी ने पेड को गले लगाया
सुखे ने अपना रंग गहराया
और पेड जब खाली घरोंदा देखता
बेहद उदास वह बन जाता
उस पेड ने सुना था कभी
ये वक्त भी गुजर जायेगा
सांज कभी सांज न रहेगी
नया सवेरा जरूर आयेगा
एक अरसा हुआ वक्त को गुजरे
वही.. उसी जगह खडा है वह
नंगी शाखों से सजा हुआ
एक मामुली सा पेड
Do you remember the times when your grandma used to tell you stories? Your eyes and ears focus to grandma and nothing else. You’ll watch this movie in the same manner. This movie isn’t a narration but it’s still a Kahaani.
Vidya Bagchi is working for a software security company in London. Her husband Arnab Bagchi, working for NDC in Kolkatta, Suddenly stopped calling her. She comes to India to find out the reason for his disappearance. As the cops turn out to be unhelpful, she investigates on her own with a helping hand in form of a newly joined police officer, Rana. Things get complicated and the mystery around the disappearance of her husband darkens. She becomes target of unknown elements and her life comes into danger. Will Vidya survive through the unfolding mystery? Will she find her husband? Watch the movie to find out.
First of all, Hats off to Vidya Balan for playing the role of pregnant woman. She is flawless and effortless in this role. She is the life of the movie and carries the whole movie easily on her shoulders. She reminds me of Late Smita Patil. At the moment there is no actress who even comes close to her when it comes to acting. Since the whole movie is focused on Vidya Balan, the rest of the cast gets very little. Special mention for Paramrata Chatterjee for portraying Rana. He has a freshness on his face and throughout the movie you feel that this role is written for him. The rest of the cast, as I said earlier, has little scope but they support Vidya Balan throughout.
The story of this movie is very clever and different from the regular masala flicks. Starts with a moderate pace and slows down a little after interval. But the climax is just mind blowing. There is a scene where Milan Damji, Arnab’s look alike, kicks Vidya in her stomach. I was quite shocked by this move. But what happened next was jaw dropping.
The screenplay totally justifies the story. Humor has been sprinkled but not very often. There is a contract killer in this movie. You actually laugh when he murders someone. Dialogs are a mix of Bengali and Hindi. That doesn’t make this film Bengali. There are no catchy lines or something that will glue to your memory. Cameraman has done brilliant job. The crowded city of Kolkatta, the darkness of the city, Joy of Durga Pooja are treat to watch.
Brilliant and engaging story, Powerful performance of Vidya Balan, Over the top climax, Top notch direction. Kahaani shouldn’t be missed. My rating 9/10.
It’s been days since I am thinking of posting about music. Today I got right time when one of my favorite movie score won Oscars. Yup, The Slumdog Millionaire. The passion for music made me write this post. My collection of music is growing and growing and growing. There is no restriction of language when it comes to music. I listen to music in many languages and it is a global language. Language is not a barrier for a music buff. Though Hindi, Marathi and English makes most of my music, I do listen to Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Konkani music. Not all of it I understand but still it leaves effect on me. If the song is sad song without knowing the meaning of a single word the feeling comes to me. If the song is romantic then it leaves that effect.This is the beauty of music. It is not just me, ask any true music lover. You’ll get a similar reply.
For the past few month I’ve lost my interest in music. The reason is the quality of music. Now a days it is very difficult to find a good combination of lyrics and music which together forms music. And if at all a song has good music it fails on lyrics side. It hurts when you find lyrics killing a song. I don’t want to give examples here. The current hot genre is the Rap music. It sounds good in some tracks but otherwise it is not at all good on ears. This is my opinion. You may be one of the greatest rap follower or rap fan. But not me. A good lyrics also helps a song to get popular.
My passion for music started when I entered the college. Within a year I became an avid Rock fan. I used to listen to a lot of variety from Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Metallica, Nirvana, Sepulatara, and some other selected tracks from various composers. It all started with “Wherever I may roam” by Metallica. “In the end” remains my favorite rock track. The lines “I tried so hard and got so far, In the end it doesn’t even matter” pictured my life at that stage. (Yeah you guessed it right. The Back papers..:P).During that stage I got my favorite track “Stuck in a moment” by U2 and another one “Walking Away” by Craig David. I get goosebumps when I recall those moments and but feel proud I got out of those successfully. Music played a big role in that. Music has the soothing effect which can heal many wounds not cured by any medicine.
To make this post the longest post so far in my blog, I am adding a list of my favorites track.
1) Zindagi Ke Safar Mein – Kishore Kumar
2) Aanewala Pal – Kishore Kumar
3) Main Zindagi Ka Sath – Mohd. rafi
4) Chukar Mere Man Ko – Kishore Kumar
5) Tere Bin Jeena Nahi – Bali Brahmabhatt
1) Stuck In A Moment – U2
2) In The End – Linkin Park
3) Walking Away – Craig david
4) Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love – George Benson
5) Be With you – Enrique Iglesias
It’s difficult to control that list and I somehow did that. Yeah I am great. It is indeed difficult to choose when you have zillions of songs. There are many more which I love to listen. I cannot list all of them here. Keep listening to music. I hope you were doing the same while reading this…
Question: Which is the most used language in this world?
Answer: Chinese. No English. No Hindi…
The fight goes on. Question remains unanswered. Most used language changes according to time. So what is the correct answer of this question? Personally I feel it is Binary language. Don’t laugh.( Actually you should 😀 ) It is the truth. I cannot prove it statistically and I am not writing this to prove this also.
Just to convince you a little bit. What is the language of computer? It is not the one you are writing or your operating system is running. It is Binary language. Just ones and zeros that add, subtract, divide, multiply and give you the results. There may be thousands of languages around the world. People speak different languages but computer speaks only one languages. I don’t have to further tell you how much computers are used in today’s word. Do I?
Decades ago, There was nothing digital. Everything analog which creates noise and need more maintenance. This mostly applies to communication field but not limited to. After the discovery of diodes and triodes, the world started moving towards a digital age. All analog things started to be replaced by digital ones. Much of them proved to be more efficient. Now many of us hate analog things. Just as an example.. Do you prefer digital camera or analog? Bike with digital odometer or analog?
We are moving towards a digital globe. Soon everything you think will turn to digital. Not everything actually. But most of the things. It has already started. It may seem that we are making progress by going digital, it may not be true. Analog has an edge that it can be controlled by the one who drives it. When it’s digital you can’t say. You may not have control over that. I like some things digital and it includes my watch also. But the classy analog watch is still the best.
I am not at all trying to make you stop from buying anything digital. Just remember, tomorrow the robot washing your clothes may wash them with you inside the cloth.
