चिंगारी कोई भड़के: आप के अपने ही कभी सबसे बड़े शत्रु साबित होते है!!!

दुःख क्या प्रेम को अमर बनाता  है ?

दुःख क्या प्रेम को अमर बनाता है ?

ये गीत मुझे बेहद  पसंद है इसलिए क्योकि जीवन के इस कटु सच्चाई का उल्लेख हुआ है कि आप के अपने ही कभी सबसे बड़े शत्रु साबित होते है. इनसे लड़ना इसलिए कठिन है क्योकि दुश्मनी का डंक अपनत्व के आवरण में ढका होता है. किसी को बनाने में तो ये काम आते ही है पर किसी को गिराने में यही अपने काम आते है.  मीर जाफर  सरीखे लोग ना हो तो किसी राष्ट्र को जीतना इतना आसान नहीं!!  

खैर इस गीत को बनाने में किशोर, पंचम दा और आनंद बक्षी का अहम रोल है.  आर ड़ी बर्मन  इस तोहमत को हमेशा झेलते रहे कि पाश्चात्य संगीत को उन्होंने कापी किया.  आंधी हो या अमर प्रेम यही कुछ एक दो फिल्मे रही है जिनमे इन्होने शास्त्रीय  संगीत पे आधारित अमर गीत दिए और अपने आलाचको को ये अच्छी तरह समझा दिया कि उनकी आलोचना कितनी सतही है.  

सयोंग से कल रोमांस की लहर को जन्म देने वाले राजेश खन्ना का जन्मदिन भी था. भारतीय रजत पटल पे प्रकटे इस पहले सुपर स्टार को मेरी तरफ से हार्दिक शुभकामनाएँ.  कोई आश्चर्य नहीं कि अपने अभिनय से इन्होने “अमर प्रेम”  को अपने कैरियर में एक माईलस्टोन का दर्जा प्रदान किया.

 

चिंगारी कोई भड़के, तो सावन उसे बुझाये
सावन जो अगन लगाये, उसे कौन बुझाये,
ओ… उसे कौन बुझाये

पतझड़ जो बाग उजाड़े, वो बाग बहार खिलाये
जो बाग बहार में उजड़े, उसे कौन खिलाये
ओ… उसे कौन खिलाये

हमसे मत पूछो कैसे, मंदिर टूटा सपनों का
हमसे मत पूछो कैसे, मंदिर टूटा सपनों का
लोगों की बात नहीं है, ये किस्सा है अपनों का
कोई दुश्मन ठेस लगाये, तो मीत जिया बहलाये
मन मीत जो घाव लगाये, उसे कौन मिटाये

न जाने क्या हो जाता, जाने हम क्या कर जाते
न जाने क्या हो जाता, जाने हम क्या कर जाते
पीते हैं तो ज़िन्दा हैं, न पीते तो मर जाते
दुनिया जो प्यासा रखे, तो मदिरा प्यास बुझाये
मदिरा जो प्यास लगाये, उसे कौन बुझाये
ओ… उसे कौन बुझाये

माना तूफ़ाँ के आगे, नहीं चलता ज़ोर किसीका
माना तूफ़ाँ के आगे, नहीं चलता ज़ोर किसीका
मौजों का दोष नहीं है, ये दोष है और किसी का
मजधार में नैया डोले, तो माझी पार लगाये
माझी जो नाव डुबोये, उसे कौन बचाये
ओ… उसे कौन बचाये

चिंगारी …

Meeting With Joy: Celebrating Christmas At Allahabad On Chilly Christmas Night!!

Meeting With Joy: Celebrating Christmas At Allahabad On Chilly Christmas Night!!

On this December 25 when most of the citizens were shivering inside their quilts, some unorthodox souls likes us decided to move on the streets of Allahabad. The glory and beauty of Allahabad on Christmas night was at its peak. Sadly, we were not roaming on the streets with good camera!! However, the brand new Samsung Touch Screen Phone worked wonders for us. We managed to have some good pictures.

It would be interesting to state that Church was bustling with activity as sea of people, mostly Hindu guys and gals, came to gather there. Most of them present there were casual visitors interested less in what’s going inside the Church. They were the ones making Sunday a perfect holiday. The hawkers had gathered around the church, selling all sorts of eatables. After all, girlfriends are die heard lovers of ice cream and fast food. Any occasion activates their taste buds!!

One of the young boys who seemed to be regular visitor while listening to the stories of birth of Christ said , ” Oh! The same old tales!! I have heard them many times ( sigh of boredom quite emanant ) . ” I wasn’t surprised to see huge number of beggars that have also managed to find place just near the entrance. It appears that celebrations not only pleases the deity but also the beggars!!

I should also let readers become aware of the history of this extraordinarily beautiful monument of my city which constitutes its pride. The All Saints Cathedral was brought into existence more than a century ago by Sir William Emerson. Mr Emerson – a famous architect in the Raj Era- attained popularity for his exceptional designing of the Victoria Memorial, Calcutta. In Allahabad, this Church is also known as Patthar Girja. The cathedral has some exceptional stained glass panels having a marble altar involving intricate inlay work. No wonder it’s one of the finest Anglican Cathedrals in Asia.

Meeting With Joy: Celebrating Christmas At Allahabad On Chilly Christmas Night!!

The experts treat it as a finest Gothic cathedral having unique balustrades, gargoyles and stained glass windows. Some of are opinion that it bears close resemblance with eastern end of Canterbury Cathedral. The Central Panel that’s indicative of crucification has images of Virgin Mary, St. John, St. Matthew, St. Mark and St. Luke, to name a few. The visitors can easily locate this Church as it lies opposite to the Allahabad Railway Station.

In the end I come to remember words of one my friends closest to my heart. The words made their presence felt after taking note of huge Hindu crowd at the Church: ” It appears that Hindus exhibit the Catholic instincts better than the Christians.”

Well, my dear friend, Indian culture is exhibiting secular spirit since time immemorial. It has always loved, respected and adored foreign traditions, customs and beliefs. It’s another thing that despite exhibiting such tolerance level misguided souls from other religions leave no opportunity to create mess in this nation.

Psalms 71:5

For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.

A Porn Star Is A Woman Of Substance?

A Porn Star Is A Woman Of Substance?

I would not have talked about Sunny Leone had she been not portrayed as woman of substance by the mainstream media. This so-called successful lady which became part of “Big Boss” show made it very clear that prostitutes are a different breed than the porn star.

In fact, an impression was generated that the choice made by her was a dignified one that reflected her attitude to move against the set patterns. ” My parents soon realized it and respected me for who I am and my decisions. So there was never any question of being disowned by my family.”

She also lambasted on those who had no clue about this subtle difference between the prostitute and porn star! “I think India doesn’t have an adult entertainment industry – that’s why people have no idea what it is. I ran a company that took care of the deals I sealed with firms to sell and share my content online and to other media. Running a company was hard work. I’d work for about 60-70 hours a week. It wasn’t a party. I have only one partner. So that way, I’m very restrained in the real world.”

Anyway, I need to present the excerpts from a conversation that I had with some of my friends in media world. It’s full of insights and interesting revelations, which will let you know all the changing landscape of media world in India and elsewhere.

********************

Arvind K.Pandey:

The moment we are going to oppose such people we would be first labeled regressive and then afterwards we would be asked to treat them and their profession as dignified !!!

Nishant Mishra, Translator associated with reputed government run institution :

This is a matter of choice, and I must say that I believe that human beings make a lot mistakes when they choose what they want to be or what they want to do. In my unbiased opinion, one’s choice of becoming a pornstar is not dignified. There’s no dearth of options if one sees things with insight.

Jayanta Bhattacharya, Media Professional:

It takes great courage to be a woman like her, and even greater courage if she is from a conservative god-fearing conservative Indian family. She is the ultimate example of female self-empowerment only next to Shakti.

Arvind K.Pandey:

I need to thank Nishant Mishra for not becoming too conscious a soul to find merit in such choices. And yes Jayanta , it was quite obvious that you were going to defend her choice. Considering your fierce defence of her decision, I am but compelled to say that what she is doing is indeed worth of admiration and emulation as well. If likes of her fail to emerge as porn star, the media across the world would lack the right ingredient to make the newspaper salable. The editors across the world would turn jobless if there lacks the opportunity to present such hot stuff. The emergence of porn star makes the media not altogether devoid of relevance. Anyway, I am not interested in making my friend Jayanta unemployed by denying him the opportunity to sensationalize such affairs.

Nishant Mishra:

If things remained the same we would soon witness two other new shows:

1. Search for Ultimate Pornstar of India and 2. Who Wants to Become a Pornstar

Arvind K. Pandey:

…. And then Media will promote the whole contest and the winner as the surest way to ensure male/female empowerment !!

Jayanta Bhattacharya:

The reality is that she is beautiful, artful lovemaker, and who knows what a man needs and wants. She is a rich businessman, owner of enterprises, top model and a world darling. There is no doubt that any man, including yours truly would be proud of a wife such as her. She is Goddess Durga to me whom the Mahisasur in me desires, but can never get. That’s it for me, that’s it for Arvind Pandey and that’s it for Nishant Mishra.

Rohit Mehra:

Jayanta bhattacharya you are no more than a fungus in some uncleaned overused overflowing sewer full of scum. Someone who assumes the sewer you live in is the whole of Brahmaanda (universe) and therefore starts advocating the ill as a genuine good. Though your ignorance can be a reflection of ur upbringing, it still can not be accepted as a reason of your innocence. Comparing Goddess with a porn star is not only a sign of sick mentality but also vehemently opposed.this should not have been done .

Now to clear your hugely discoursed perception and to widen your scope of thinking. Even the womanhood of your own house and relatives would be very famous if they follow the footsteps of Carren Malhotra. But would you want this to happen? And if the answer is in affirmative then why are you not encouraging them by telling them how successful a career as a porn star could be? The answer is very simple: Successful and desirable does not always mean righteous and genuine. It is one thing to attract some one with your beauty and art and it is totally other to expose a being to sinister and dark fantasies.

Sex is no more a taboo in this wonderful and matured land of the Kamasutra but spreading and subliminal promotion of porn is immensely adverse to family values and the very structure of family itself. Respect womanhood as she is the nucleus of a family,as properly maintained family leads to a strong society which ultimately gives rise to a great nation.

Arvind K.Pandey:

I agree in toto with Rohit. That’s the real dilemma. The same rules which likes of Shobha De or , for that matter any other feminists preach attains a different meaning in their own lives. Shobha can glorify lesbianism in her own books but I am sure she would be the first one to enter in fierce opposition if her own daughters turn into one such lesbian character found in her novels!!

My only objection with this news report is that okay you might see attaining porn stardom a big cause of celebration but please don’t preach or make a fuss about it publicly. Is this statement of hers such a big thing that it finds a great space in all major news dailies? What’s the point in seeing that as a big career which this porn star has implicitly tried to suggest?

Arvind K. Pandey:

Please don’t misrepresent us Jayanta !! Neither me nor Nishant bhai is ever going to feel anything great in having a porn star as wife. Both you and Nishant Bhai, in any case, can never dream of her having as wife since as far as I know you both are already married!!. Or else, I am sure I am going to see another pic of husband bashing at hands of wife in newspapers!! I wish that husband bashing news gets edited by Jayanta!!

As far as I am concerned I would be more happy to have a good looking girl with decent values as a wife than marrying a porn star- a rich businessman, owner of enterprises, top model and a world darling 🙂

By the way, if you have left out any epithets in favour of this porn star then please go ahead use that also. You will not get another opportunity to carve more epithets 🙂

“She is Goddess Durga to me whom the Mahisasur (demon king) in me desires, but can never get.”…Waah Jayanta bhai kya line hai ? (That’s a great line) Lage rahiye. ( Keep the same spirit). Don’t be that frustrated. Get divorce first and then concretize your dreams.

Jayanta Bhattacharya:

And, what are you Rohit Mehra ? Chief of Vice and Virtue Police? I am at least being frank in my opinions. However, hypocrites like you whose loathsome background and upbringing is exposed by the language you use are losers who can’t have it this way or that way. Shame on you.

Arvind K.Pandey:

This is very interesting discussion. I hope the warriors of words involved in this war of words would not make personal remarks!! Let’s not kill this lively discussion with personal remarks. Let’s target the issue than targeting the person..

By the way, my adorable Jayanta bhai, I appreciate your ability to carve funny epithets and hilarious expressions: Chief of Vice and Virtue Police!! Where is the headquarter located ? Is it another wing of Police department ? Do the policemen involved in this wing take bribe ? These questions have now filled my mind. I am anxious to more about this department!. Anyway, Vice and Virtue police is badly needed to manage the wannabe porn stars !!!

Superstar, Rock star and now Porn Star! Let’s see what other types of star hit our lives.

Rohit Mehra:

Well this is a very expected reaction from someone ( Jayanta Bhattacharya) who is obviously at loss of words to defend his previous remarks. Pity on people like you who are completely delusioned!!!!

Dharmendra Sharma:

The right and wrong depends upon the societal norms in which we live. In society of dogs, it may be acceptable.

Arvind K.Pandey:

In other words Dharmendraji the society of our times has subscribed itself to doggie values!!

We know very well why such news items get sensationalized!! How else Mallikas of newer types survive in ever changing skin business?

The media is rotten to the core. Nothing else remains to be said in this regard.

Dealing With A Breakup In Love Relationship Kolaveri Di Way

Dealing With A Breakup In Love Relationship Kolaveri Di Way

Kolaveri Di song has attained some sort of celebrity status among the listeners. I wonder how many of you know what exactly Kolaveri Di means?   Kolaveri Di means killer rage girl.  This song depicts failure in love not in a heart rendering way but in a diametrically opposite funny style.  The song has been portrayed as soup song which means a song depicting rejection!!

Once you come to know what the song is trying to convey you would really fall in love with this song.   It’s a perfect song in regard to depiction of deep human emotions in a lighter vein.   It’s hard to present another example wherein sense of rejection has been conveyed in such a hilarious way !!   So please listen this song with refined understanding that even break-ups can be a source of comic relief!!!

Since I have referred to breakups,  I would love to point strange habit prevalent in modern day lovers.  It’s really amusing that everybody in teen category is eager to be in love with opposite sex. However, one rarely has the right attitude to be in love.  I mean despite being devoid of romantic orientations we get engaged in love relationships.  Most of us get involved in a relationship in a freaky way. They are seeking something else and not love when they develop a bond with opposite sex in name of love.

I mean they just don’t know why they are in love with someone.  In such love relationships the role of attraction, which is generally short termed, attains heightened position.  When this attraction fades away or when such attraction is not guided by long term plans or when there is no role of human values the breakup soon becomes a reality.

Strange are man and woman of our planet earth.  They have time for nuisance values, for all things they hate like office work.   On the other hand, the only thing they have for relationship close to heart is lack of care and casual attitude.  The bitter truth is that they never are in love with better values.   In fact, modern age lovers lack the guts to be in league with real emotions as building true relationship demands sincerity and purity of emotions-something which hi tech lovers lack.  On the other hand, it’s easy for them to maintain fake relationships in name of love as it doesn’t need any effort to maintain them….

Translation of the Kolaveri D Song:

Yo boys, I am singing song…
Soup song, flop song.
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?

Rhythm correct.

Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?

Maintain please.
Why this killer rage, …, …, girl?

The moon is in the distance, the moon.
Moon’s colour is white.
Night’s background is white, the night,
Night’s colour is black.
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?

She’s a fair-skinned girl, girl,
Girl’s heart is black,
Her eyes and my eyes met,
My future is now dark.
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?
Buddy, take notes, and take the saxophone in your hand.

“pa pa paan pa pa paan pa pa paa pa pa paan”
Play it right.

Super, buddy!
Ready? Ready? 1… 2… 3… 4…

Whoa, what a difference buddy!
Alright buddy, now tune changes…

“Kaila” glass…
Only English, eh!

Glass in hand, Scotch in glass,
Tears in eyes, Life’s empty,
Girl shows up,
Life’s going downhill.

Love, love, oh my love,
You stood me up.
Cow, cow, holy cow,
I want you here now!
God, I’m dying now,
But she’s happy, how?

We don’t have a choice.
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?
Why this killer rage, killer rage, killer rage, girl?

The Western Worlds Can Justify Their Attacks On Various Democracies But Indians Can Dare Not Justify Hindu Causes

It's the rich and powerful who decide political correctness!!

It's the rich and powerful who decide political correctness!!

It’s really frustrating that Harvard University decided to drop Subramanian Swamy for publishing brilliant article ” How to wipe out Islamic terror ” in Indian newspaper DNA.  That exposes the double standards prevailing in the Western worlds.  Anything remotely concerned with the cause of Hindus is a cause of worry for academicians, thinkers and political strategists in Western world. To ride roughshod over it,  they can even sabotage the greater values like freedom of speech. The United States  can use all means to justify their cruelties in smaller nations and that’s fair way of honouring values related with freedom of speech. However, others are sacked or tortured for raising voice against oppressive tendencies and social inequalities. 

The same minds are eager to promote likes of Geelani, M F Hussain and  Arundhati Roy  who worked against the Indian ethos. Whatever hurts the Indian sentiments falls in the realm of “values of freedom of speech” and deserve awards  like Booker !! Their divisive agendas, distortions and manipulation of facts never are neither hate filled nor aimed at triggering violence!!  These derailed minds in Western worlds are icons of saintly tendencies and political correctness and that’s why their views are spread here and there in prominent foreign journals. However, all the people pursuing Hindu agenda are painted as monsters and a negative impression is systematically generated that makes such people a suspicious figure.

The Indians need to take note of these deceptive orientations existing in foreign lands. Unless we become conscious of double standards prevailing there, one would not be able to intercept the double standards inherent in their policies meant for India. Of course, there is also urgent need to ignore Indian scholars associated with such dubious orientations prevailing in these reputed foreign bodies. One cannot ignore that many reputed Indian publications are merely clones of these reputed foreign bodies, whose only task is to facilitate glorification of anti India tendencies.    

Ending my article with the excerpts from article ” How to wipe out Islamic terror”  by Subramanian Swamy, which originally appeared in DNA. 

Any policy to combat terrorism must begin with requiring each and every Hindu becoming a virat Hindu. For this, one must have a Hindu mindset that recognises that there is vyaktigat charitra (personal character) and rashtriya charitra (national character). For example, Manmohan Singh has high personal character, but by being a rubber stamp of a semi-literate Sonia Gandhi and waffling on all national issues, he has proved that he has no rashtriya charitra.

The second lesson for combating terrorism is that we must never capitulate or concede any demand, as we did in 1989 (freeing five terrorists in exchange for Mufti Mohammed Sayeed’s daughter Rubaiya) and in 1999, freeing three terrorists after the hijack of Indian Airlines flight IC-814.

The third lesson is that whatever and however small the terrorist incident, the nation must retaliate massively. For example, when the Ayodhya temple was sought to be attacked, we should have retaliated by re-building the Ram temple at the site.

According to bleeding heart liberals, terrorists are born or bred because of illiteracy, poverty, oppression, and discrimination. They argue that instead of eliminating them, the root cause of these four disabilities in society should be removed. This is rubbish. Osama bin laden was a billionaire. In the failed Times Square episode, failed terrorist Shahzad was from a highly placed family in Pakistan and had an MBA from a reputed US university.

It is also a ridiculous idea that terrorists cannot be deterred because they are irrational and willing to die. Terrorist masterminds have political goals and a method in their madness. An effective strategy to deter terrorism is to defeat those political goals and to rubbish them by counter-terrorist action.Thus, I advocate the following strategy to negate the political goals of Islamic terrorism in India.”
