Ru Ba Ru - Rang De Basanti

This song is running on my I Pod since yesterday. No other song. Awesome lyrics. Awesome meaning. Awesome fundas.

aye saala
abhi abhi huaa yaqeen ki aag hai mujh mein kahi
hui subaah main chal gaya
suraj ko main nigal gaya
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy

jo gumshuda-sa khwaab tha
voh mil gaya
voh khil gaya
woh loha thaa pighal gaya
kichhaa kichhaa machal gaya
sitaar mein badal gaya
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy

dhuaan chhataa khula gagan mera
nayi dagar naya safar mera
jo ban sake tu hamsafar mera
nazar mila zara

dhuaan chhataa khula gagan mera
nayi dagar naya safar mera
jo ban sake tu hamsafar mera
nazar mila zara


aandhiyon se jaghad rahi hai lau meri
ab mashaalon si bhad rahi hai lau meri

naamo nishaan rahe na rahe
ye kaaravaan rahe na rahe
ujaale mein pee gaya
roshan huaa jee gaya
kyon sehte rahe
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy

dhuaan chhataa khula gagan mera
nayi dagar naya safar mera
jo ban sake tu hamsafar mera
nazar mila zara

ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy
aye saala
aye saala
aye saala
aye saala


Someone asked if I have the song's lyrics which was being played during when aamir Khan and his gang visit the Golden Temple in the movie. Here it is for everyone, with the meanings. Got it after some googling.


ik-oNkaar sat naam kartaa purakh nirbha-o nirvair akaal moorat ajoonee saibhaN gur parsaad.
One Universal Creator God. The Name Is Truth. Creative Being Personified. No Fear. No Hatred. Image Of The Undying, Beyond Birth, Self-Existent. By Guru's Grace.


jap.
Chant And Meditate.


aad sach jugaad sach.
True In The Primal Beginning. True Throughout The Ages.

hai bhee sach naanak hosee bhee sach.
True Here And Now. O Nanak, Forever And Ever True.


sochai soch na hova-ee jay sochee lakh vaar.
By thinking, He cannot be reduced to thought, even by thinking hundreds of thousands of times.

chupai chup na hova-ee jay laa-ay rahaa liv taar.
By remaining silent, inner silence is not obtained, even by remaining lovingly absorbed deep within.


bhukhi-aa bhukh na utree jay bannaa puree-aa bhaar.
The hunger of the hungry is not appeased, even by piling up loads of worldly goods.


sahas si-aanpaa lakh hohi ta ik na chalai naal.
Hundreds of thousands of clever tricks, but not even one of them will go along with you in the end.


kiv sachi-aaraa ho-ee-ai kiv koorhai tutai paal.
So how can you become truthful? And how can the veil of illusion be torn away?


hukam rajaa-ee chalnaa naanak likhi-aa naal.
O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam of His Command, and walk in the Way of His Will.


There are lots of fundas. I have no idea what the whole thing means. But this is the only prayer I know. Basically its the first paragraph of the Guru Granth Sahib. Very beautifully sung in the movie.

Rang De Basanti



Saw Rang De Basanti on Friday night. The movie is phenomenal. Now there are few movies which hit you so hard that after watching the movie you shut your mouth and think "What am I doing?" This is one of them.
Movie is about few friends from Delhi University who have no aim in life, are real happy and masti marofy, no pain to anyone and just chill attitude. There is this girl who comes from UK to make a movie on Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sukhdev, Chandrashekhar Aazad and Ram Prasad Bismill. Because of low funds she hires them and tries to fit them in the Freedom Fighter's shoes. But the group is not able to relate to what the Freedom Fighters had done till something happens to one of their friends. This changes their lives completely. They now want to stand for a cause and fight for thier friend's lost image and identity. Doing this they also ask the nation's youth to question themselves as to what they are doing. I guess thats the mesage of the movie. They say "kuch dhamaka hona chahiye, tabhi log samjhenge aur jagenge" and they do the dhamaka and the nation awakens.
Aamir is DJ (Daljit Singh) and a Delhi University passout but still stays in the campus because he says "University ke gate ke is taraf DJ ki koi aukaat hai, DJ ko koi pehchanta hai. Gate ke us taraf koi aukaat nahi. University ke gate ke is taraf life ko hum chalate hain aur gate ke us taraf, life hum ko chalati hai" Sali kya baat boli hai DJ, tu cha gaya yaar!!! Ekdum god level baat. May be thats the reason I keep going back to IIT as much as I can. Who knows. Pata nahi.
Its full of fun in the first half and lots of gyan in second half.
In one of the scenes Aamir comes back from hospital after shocking incidents happen to him and his friends. He tries to eat food and the roti doesnt go below his throat. Phenomenal acting by Aamir Khan. I guess thats why he is where he is. Brilliant actor!!!
Soha Ali (Sonia) has done a great role too. Doesnt look like a new comer. Very comfortable and very matured as an actor, with that Sharmila Tagore look.
Excellent roles by Kunal Kapoor (Aslam), Sharman Joshi (Sukhi), Atul Kulkarni (Laxman Pandey), Madhavan (Ft. Lt. Ajay), Waheeda Rehman (Ajay's Mom), Anupam Kher (big shot businessman), Om Puri (Aslam's Father) and Kiron Kher (DJ's mom) but the surprise was Siddharth (Karan). Magnificent performance by him. In one of the scenes he gives a 500 rupee note to some arbit guy, his friend asks him why did he give the money, in reply he says "Baap ka paisa hai, pada pada saad jaata." Ha Ha Ha, saala kameena. Doesnt talk much, speaks through his eyes. Gave a slight touch of Ajay Devgun. Was great!!!
Alice Patten was great as Sue. Looks very pretty and very humble. RDB is not like other Hindi movies showing most of the "gori chamdi" as "kutta kameenas". She looked very sweet with that broad smile. :-) And also lots of colors of Punjab and north India thrown in, with excellent music. A movie everyone should watch.
I loved it.

Coming Back to Life

Back to the mother of all festivals, "Saarang" is here. I have videos of "Shankar - Ehsaan -Loy" show and will post them soon.

Gurcharan Das gave lecture on psychology and was relating it to Mahabharata. Was giving major funde on Dharam, Karma. It was good but too much for me I would say.

The "Ravi Tea Stall". We used to sit here for hours and hours and hours after dinner and used to discuss the future of India. :-)


At my department. :-)


Friends for ever: Srinath, Parichay, Kini, Dipankar, Soumya, Tushar, Ritu, Akhil, Nishtha, Rashmi and Nitin.

Underwear & Life Partner

I was talking to one of my friends and came to a great conclusion. Never allow anyone else to choose your underwear and life partner. Reasons:
  • You must know the quality yourself.
  • You must be comfortable with it/him/her.
  • Its bloody your decision what you want.
  • Both can make you itchy in public.
  • Both can make you spend more than the initial amount you have spent.
  • Its important you choose them because they hug you all the time.
  • Both need not be very colorful but you have to be with them all the time.

If anyone wants to put more reasons please feel free. :-)

People had something to say:

  • Trupster said: u can always date girls (one at a time okay) b4 u actually make one of them ur life partner, but u cant try out an underwear b4 u buy it!!!
  • Trupster said: this theory of yours, i dunno if it applies to girls... girls have many different styles in underwear; and they can buy as many as they want, cuz each depends on what they r wearing :) but life partner for a girl, is only one :)
  • Raj said: But its very easy to get rid of an underwear you don't want.

Cheers

Tag of all Tags - Part 2

The life partner tag

Praveen tagged me, about the eight different points I would love to have in my life partner. Now, let me see. First she should be a GIRL!!!

  • She should love me. I can never be with someone who doesn't love me. Ok I love her but if she doesn't love me then we both wont be happy and then there will be hazar problems. It is very important that love exists between two partners before anything happens.
  • She should be intelligent. I cant cant cant tolerate dumbness. Stupidity is fine, sometime you do some stupid things and we can laugh over it few years later but dumbness is yukkkkkkkkkks. I say a Santa Banta jokes and she says "Hello ji, suno ji. Yeh joke tha???" I would take a brick and hit, no not her but my head.
  • She should respect me. Love and respect come with each other. I would always respect my girl for what she is and would expect the same from her. Respect is very important. She should respect me for my work, for my driving, for my choice of clothes, for my pony tail, etc etc. hehehehe. Ok exaggeration but she should basically respect me for what I am, thats all.
  • She should be my strength. If I am down and want to talk to her she should always be "Bhavdeep don't worry" and her one look should calm me down. I know there is a lot of love involved in this but I guess she just being around me should calm me down even if I am having the worst day of my life.
  • She should be my faith. Like I can look up to her. If someone says "Bhavdeep whom would you like to born as in your next life?" I should at once say without second thought,"My wife. She is the one I would like to be born as." She should have everything what I lack and should make me a complete person. Not like Raymond's Complete man since 1925 though ;-)
  • I should be able to trust her without even a second thought. If I can't trust her, I can't love her or respect her. Trusting her should come from inside and that will come when we both are madly in love with each other. Love is again the the the thing I look in her.
  • She should be a great cook or else find a great cook or find a great restaurant where we can have good food every night :-) Naaah. Cooking and all doesnt matter. I just want to have food with her every night. Thats all.
  • She should love Movies. Sholay, Andaaz Aapna Aapna, Lakshaya, Swades, Lagaan, Matrix and Lord of the Rings Triology, Harry Potter Series, Spiderman series, etc etc. she should have copies of all these movies. :-) She should love bhangra music (But hate Daler Mehendi) and should know how to do Gidda and Bhangra. (Virdi thinking: Kya Bakwas kar raha hai sardar, do you ever want a girl in your life??)
  • And and and if she is awesome in bed it is an added advantage. Ahem Ahem Ahem. See I am not lying or hiding any of my feelings. ;-)

The last three are just fillers. :-)


Dinner Tag

Have been tagged Thanu, few months back. I have to list 6 people who I would like to take out for dinner and why. Firstly I would not like to go out with any guy. Sorry guys. Enough of guys and this that. Now its time I concentrate only on gurls. ;-)

  • ROS: She is nice and she helped me with the EEG and brain scan reports. So complementary dinner.
  • Sayesha: Hmmmm. I said stupid things to her few weeks back. So have to again pataofy her and say sorry worry and all that. So complementary dinner.
  • Sneha: Oh I put her photo on my blog and she got angry because of some of my dear naughty stupid friends were doing natak and were pestering her. So got to say her also sorry worry and all that. So dinner for her.
  • Roopa: Guujju babe has got awesome taste of food and she is very very pretty. :-) How can I miss pretty girls on my list??? Ahem ahem ahem. Roopa ko khaana toh khilana hi padega. :-)
  • Princess: Hmmm she is really different and after food when we sit around the table she can just tell her one of her favourite poems and we can just listen to them, shanti se. She writes awesome awesome poems. So Princess ko khana khilana hi padega. :-)
  • Thanu: Now she asked me out for dinner so I have to ask her. :-)

I just saw that half of the girls are being called because I have to say sorry to them. What a life. Sad life. Worsht life. "Pehle pain deta hai, then dinner deta hai. Sala pakka sardar hai."

Not tagging anyone. But if anyone has done this just let me know. Just want to see what others have written or done.

Back in Madras now, back to regular blogging.

How to take a perfect catch!!!

Dear everyone. Thanks for all the good wishes :-) Mom is perfect. Just that there is a little weakness. Either she gossips with my Naani all day or else she sleeps. The pills are pretty strong I guess.
Special thanks to Fao and ROS. Fao took care of my chota cousin Deepu. ROS looked at the EEG and brain scan reports. The reports were pefect and she suggests "rest and good food".
Me and Deepu were having fun few days back by throwing the ball on the wall and then taking a diving catch. I tried few stunts and "Yuvraj Singh - Jonty Rhodes" tricks**. Here are some of the photos. How to take a good two handed catch.

Make a full hearted attept and jump at the ball with two hands. Two handed catch is always safer than one handed catch.

Perfect Landing is very important
Holding on to the ball and then "Howazzat!!!"
I am using a dial-up connection for this post. And believe me I am using dial-up for the first time. It is awesomely slow. I mean now I know the difference between dialup and internet cable connection. Phew!!!! Worsht connection!!!

Life Hai Yaar

Sometime life does few things and you don't know why it has happened. There might be so many questions you would seek answers for but you might never find them. You might ask yourself as to why this happened to me or why this happened to that guy. I have seen people who don't smoke, don't drink, lead a very sober life fighting with diseases. I have seen people who pray five times a day, were the class toppers, were recognised by professsors at IIT as the best student they ever had; getting divorced after 8 months of marriage. Sometimes it just happens and you don't know why. You just have to accept.

Nandita sent me a forward today morning and it made a lot of sense. Sometime you just have to say, "Life Hai Yaar!!"

  • I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it may be better tomorrow.
  • I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles a rainy day and lost luggage.
  • I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life."
  • I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
  • I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's glove on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.
  • I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
  • I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.
  • I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.
  • People love that human touch - holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
  • I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

Makes sense to me. And yes I have to learn a lot. :-)

Lakshaya - Four times

We were watching Lakshaya yesterday and it was fun. No No No not because of the movie but because the way we were watching the movie. Every dialog was repeated thrice and then we allowed Hritick to spit out the dialog.
In the scene "Malihabad Ke Aam Khaye hain??"
Me: Karan kabhi Malihabad ke aam khaye hain?
Kini: Nahi sir.
Deepu: Aasli maza toh aam khane ka aam ke baagh mein hi hai.
And then we let the real movie dialogs come on screen. Deepu said, "It looks like I am watching the movie four times." Every dialog was repeated four times. As they say in IIT "Saala poora magga maar liya hai"
I love this movie and its dialogs.
Hritick: Uncle last time inki rally mein police ne water cannon chalaye the water cannon. (With a face like his eyes are about to pop out)
Lalita Dube: Jaisi maa waisi beti.
Hritick: Aunty?? No uncle (Eyes are now out of the sockets)
Uncle: Toh fir tum kya karne wale ho Karan?
Hritick: Aabhi toh main ghar ja raha hoon. Fir sham ko Udesh aur Parvesh ke sath.....
Uncle: Main tumhara aaj ka program nahi pooch raha hoon. Tum zindagi ke baare mein kya soocha hai??
Hritick: Zindagi??You mean life?? Hmmmm... Iske baare mein bhi soochna toh chahiye.
And then the scientist and ghas kaatne wala dialog. Phew!!! I am amazed I have all the dialogs in my head. :-) Pata nahi I was so jobless that I saw the movie 2000 times and now I have total magga marofied the dialogs. :-)

Ah this movie. How can I ever forget "Andaz Aapna Aapna"? What a movie!! Errrr, I mean what a crappy movie. What stupid dialogs. What stupidity. What crap. Its the best movie made out of junk.

Gogo: Gogo Mogambo ka bhateeja. Aankhen nikal ke gotiyan khelunga. (steals the cyle and runs away) Aaya hoon toh kuch leke toh jaunga.

Gogo: Yeh teja Teja kya hai? Yeh Teja Teja?

Aamir Khan to Gogo: Gogo ji aapki kahani toh meri maa sunati thi. Maa kehti thi so ja beta so jua nahi toh Gogo aa jayega. (total pickup from Sholay)

And how can we forget Vasco da Gama ki gun. Just take the name and fire, the bullet automatically hits the guy. Hahahahahaha... Kya bakwas hai yaar.
The kidnappers call Raveena and Krishma to tell them that their father has been kidnapped.
Raveena: Yeh lo aapne boss se baat karo (and gives the phone to Aamir )
Teja (the kidnapper): Mera boss?? Mera boss kaun hai??? Kaun hai mera boss??
Aamir and Salman go on a Luna to give the kidnappers 50 lacs. Kidnapper 1: yeh thaili mein pachas lakh leke aayeh hain kya? Kidnapper 2: Sir sir lakh lakh ke pachas cheque hoyenge sir. Kidnapper goes to Aamir and Salman and they give the kidnapper Rs 7800: Abe yeh firoti ke paise hain ki maiyat ka chanda? (Is this the money you have brought to get back the guy or is it money from some donation?) Worshtest Dialogs.
Total crappy movie and please if someone has not watched this movie, go and watch it but make sure you have a refrigerator at home. You need not carry your brains in front of the TV while watching the movie.
I love Bollywood. :-)
Oh before I forget. There was this girl Sneha Gupta who wrote a comment on Sayesha's blog and she has such an amazing smile. Posting her photo and this is her blog ID. Such an innocent and pretty smile. Hmmmm...
UPDATE: REMOVED YOUR PICTURE SNEHA!!

Manchester United


Ok never wrote anything about the club I love the most. As the Oinglish say: "Manchester United in the best football club in the world mayte." I love Man United. I presented Deepu with this ManU tshirt and we plan to watch all their matches together wearing the ManU colors. Check out the Manchester United Legends page too.
They play the FA cup third round match against a small team Burton Albion and I know they are going to win it. Go ManU go!!! Under Sir Alex ferguson they have won the English Premier League eight times and won the UEFA Cup Champion's league in 1999.
Poor Arsenal and Chelsea its going to take you all a long time when you can catch us. Keep trying losers. Muhahahahahahaha. (Mogambo Khush hua) All said and done they dont have a great team now. They are out of UEFA cup champion's league and will not win the EPL this year too. I hope they win atleast the FA cup and bring some glory to the club. All the best to the club I love the most.
Latest Update: Burton Albion 0-0 Man Utd. Read full report here.
Absolute bullshit. Absolute crap. I hate everyone running the club right now. Even the gardner who waters the grass. I am in real bad mood.

My New Car

Bought a new car on Monday. Wanted to start the year with a bang. Mercedes Benz CLS - Class. Always wanted to have a Merc, so here I am now. Proud owner of the car. The photo was taken just before I left the showroom.
Thanks everyone. Hope you have enjoyed the show. And now lets get back to the real world.
Went to the Chennai Open and Merc is one of the key sponsors. There was this car parked there and took a photo and left that place. Ok I don't own the car?? Bleedy jealous people can't even see me happy for one moment.
Good night!! :-)

Chennai Open 2006

The Chennai Open started today and I witnessed one of the best doubles matches ever played.
Firstly, thanks Archana (Dog) for the tickets. You dad is rocking. Thanks uncle, for the free tickets. :-)
Me and Fao went for the matches and saw Prakash Amritraj beat some guy from Brazil. Then Srichappan partnered with some guy from Czech Republic to beat some guys in a stupid doubles match. Don't know don't care. There was a new doubles rule. Please click here for more information.
Then came "The Tiger" partnering a louzy guy from Czech Republic, Martin Damm. He looked moron of Nth Grade. He was slow on his feet and was really really looking like a Nazi.
But Leander Paes showed yet again, how he inspires himself and comes up with great shots at very tense situations to win the game. He was amazing yesterday. And as Fao says, "He has got the heart of ten lions." Being set down and nearly written off by the opponents in he second set, Leander showed what is class, why he is still rated as the best tennis players in the world, why he is still winning Grand Slams with a 50 year old woman, why he still carry the hope of 1 billion people on his soulders, because he knows HE CAN DO IT!!! Such people really inspire me. I believe this is what makes people like Leander, Dhanraj, Raghavandra Singh Rathore, Anju Bobby George and Sachin, REAL LIFE HEROS and we are just normal human beings. They have the will power and the killer instinct. People who have the belief that they can do things, can only do it. Others are hmmmm, don't know can't say. Leander Paes is GOD!!!
Check out some of the photos.

Centre Court


Kids are so cool. They just want an autograph. Doesn't matter who he is. :-) Really loved it when they just wanted autograph of Charu Sharma. :D No one else but Charu Sharma. HAHAHAHAHA!!

OK good night everyone. Good luck Leander!!!

31st December 2005

We all had decided to watch Harry Potter, in Mayajaal. Me, Kini, Fao and AJane ready to go, till AJane ditched us. Fao requested her again to come and don't know what happened and she said "OK I will come". Girls can't decide. Ufff!!
Anyways AJane took 45 minutes to come to Adyar from Alwarpet. Fao was getting furious and didnt want to sit back at home. Asked me to drive out of home. Phew!!! What anger maachi.
We were waiting in front of Sixth Sense at SP Road and AJane met us there. Fao was had to be tied down to not hit her. We were getting really really late for the movie. Reached there at some 4.05 and we missed the crediats and "Film Division Dwara Prastut Certificate" of Harry Potter. Movie got over and we had not decided where were going to eat for dinner. Coming back from ECR can be a pain at times and met a huge traffic jam at Tirvanmiyur.
Came home and made tea for everyone. For some reason we decided we want to eat at Karaikuri and Fao was the culprit. I didnt have any idea what I was reading on the menu. Kazambahu and Kutupadi and Mutton Onion Tomato something. Seriously I had no idea. Kini had some "Turkey Biriyani." I ate some dosa with chutney. Yukky chutney.
Went to Gio-R-Gio, continental reastaurant and ate total Indian food there. :-) I never had diner at two places in my life. Finished eating and off to drop AJane home.
One the way we stopped at Chill Thrill for ice cream and it was 12. Yipieeeeeee. Happy new year everyone.
Ajane lives in Alwarpet. Phew her dad has a lot of money. Sexy appartment she live in. ;-)
While driving back my bladder started showing off and I had to drive back without changing gears. The more I moved my legs I felt like I am going to pee in the car. New year's first wish, "God Please Bring my house 5 kilometers nearer I got to peeeeeeee" reached home and ran in like a rugby player. Phewwwwwwwwwww!!! What a relief. Thank you god. Thank you.
It was 1 AM and Kini was like "Maacha lets go to IIT man". Ok lets go. :-)
Went to IIT. Played Table Tennis in Cauvery hostel. Kini lost to me again. 21-6. I didnt even smash. My ball placement on the table with backhand and forehand spin was just too good. To irritate him more. "Come on Kini, give some fight!! Come on Kini, atleast this year try to beat me!!!"

Kini looks sad after losing to me in TT again

Went to Krishna. Wow. IIT is rocking. Night cricket and all that.

Picture 2. In Krishna Hostel

Happy New Year Everyone. I had a great time. Hope everyone else also had.
