Dhinchak Ishtar – Geet Sagar – Day 6
Have the love and its way changed over last 10-15 years? Is it now easier to fall in love or to just move on and be in peace with a break up? Has the love as a whole changed?
Movie dekh ke we were heading towards food court @infinity. Toh Subway Sandwich khaane ke saath baat nikli pyaar mohabbat ki. Mujhe yaad hai mere school ke dino mein pyaar jitnaa khoobsoorat tha utna hi mushkil bhi. Oopar se chhotaa sheher. 10 saal pehle ki baat hai. Na mobile the hamaare paas, na Facebook, na Twitter, na kuch. EK hi tareeka hota tha. Ya to sher banke jaao…baat karo. Ya chitthi vitthi likho aur propose maaro. Fat.ti thi in sabhi baton mein. Har cheez mein efforts karne padte the. Is se na sirf value samajh aati thi balki kho dene ka dar bhi rehta tha. Pyaar kamaanaa padtaa tha. EK baar phone par baat karne ke liye ghanto aur kai baar dino tak koshish aur intezaar karna padta tha. Kabhi try kiya to baap ne utha liya, kabhi bhai ki gaaliyaan sun rahe hain. Full on majnoogiri.
Aur aaj kal! Things have changed. Mobile se pyaar pyaar ka izhaar. Chitthiyaan boodhi hokar mar gai.(May their soul RIP) Msg mein pyaar, msgs mein jhagde, Status updates mein taunts, msgs mein hi koshishein manaane ki, aur zyaada hua to ek text me hi break up. Wo intezaar aur deedaaar ki excitement raha he nai. Sabke paas options badh gaye hain. Tu nahin aur sahi aur nahi aur sahi.
Propose bhi msg pe — yeh toh bura hai. Feeling, face expressions and sab toh value he nai karta. Aap log he batao romance virtual nai hogaya?
EK baat aur chali ki aksar dekha hai ki ladkiyaan chaahti hain ki propose ladke karein, surprise ladke karein, outings plan bhi ladke karein, raani ki tarah unhein rakkhein, etc etc etc. Wasn’t love a mutual feeling? It’s equally masculine as it is feminine. I am not saying ki aisa hota hi nahin hai but maine bahut kam rishton mein baraabari dekhi hai. Men too want love, to be showered upon them, to be surprised, to be the LADY sometimes. Opinions hain bhai…generalize na hi karein to accha hai par haan love needs some serious thinking for sure. And so do lovers.
Saw ‘Ship of Theseus’ and ‘D Day’ today. Fair enough they were. After long…. saw a movie which could grip you throughout the time, D Day. Nice music. Glued to Alvida from D Day and Slow Motion Angrezaa from Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. How songs speak for you na. Kitni saari feelings kabhi kabhi andar hi kahin chhupi hui milti hain mujhe so koi gaanaa sunke baahar aa jaati hain. It surfaces through a song. Oopar se dono gaano mein Sukhwinder Singh ki gaayaki ke do colors. Amazing!!Wowww!!
Subah rehearsals thi. Aaj ek chhota sa role kiya, raja janak ka. Sita ke pita. Felt so dumb. Jiase hi floor par jaate hain bhai log, solid fat jaati hai. Rehearsals dekh dekh ke itna samajh aane lagaa hai ki –when you try to in act something you also get to understand if you are doing it right, effectively or not. I will work on it as I finish writing this.
Din guzar rahe hain. Aisa lagne lagaa hai ki seekhne ke liye waqt aur seekhne ki speed dono hi kam ho gai hai pehle se. Jaise- jaise kisi cheez ke kareeb aate jaate hain uski vishaalta ka ehsaas hone lagta hai. Har wo cheez jo baayein haath ka khel lagti hai kareeb se usko samajhte waqt samajh aataa hai ki zindagi kam pad jaayegi ‘to be a master of even one’. Kabhi -kabhi lagtaa hai der to nahin ho gayi. I mean shouldn’t I be settling down with a secure life. Phir the artist, wanderer, traveler in me shouts back. Don’t try to think rational, you are an artist. Hahaha. Chalte jaate hain, subah se shaam tak, khwaab mein bhi bas chalte hi jaate hain. Sabhi chal rahe hain. As we become or achieve something lagne lagtaa hai bas yahi to chaahiye…but then again…we start moving and keep going further. Ajeeb baat hai na?
Chalo ji its time. Kal I fly to Jabalpur. Kuch saal pehle, Before X Factor happened main kitne hi aise programmes kiya karta tha jo dil ke kareeb hote the. Nights in the names of legends, Theme and concept based shows. 31st july is Mohd. Rafi Saaheb’s barsi. Is din aur iske aas paas ke dino mein poori duniya mein log Rafi Nights karte hain. He is my favourite singer. Maine aaj tak aisi aawaaz doosri nahin suni. I am going for one such night to be held in Jabalpur on 28th July. Ek din rehearsals and next day performance. Will be working with some old friends…excited I am. Plus I love the outer of Jabalpur city. Have stayed there for a few months in 2010. Its also the cultural capital on the nation. Narmada nadi, green outskirts, old friends and great music….this weekend is gonna be fun. Good Night Folks.
