!! Fighting Addiction Not Quitting !!

So folks, some time back I posted about me thinking of quitting to smoke :) Here are some clarifications about it, coz few ppl then raised concerns about my being leaving the club, asking me a lot questions on what, why, where, how...and how-many :)

so here are all the answers

  • I am Fighting the addiction to Cigarettes.
  • I am not quitting smoking Cigarattes.
  • I still relish Beer, Whisky (Jonny Walker esp...), Wine (Red), Vodka, Gin, Martini :), Rum (Old Monk esp...).
  • I shall refrain from daily smoking and shall only smoke with friends occasionally at TGIF, Ruby's Tuesday, Geoffry's, some other pubs and bars around the globe.
  • I shall continue to smoke & drink with MY DEAR "SYED SHASTRI" & "Sandy" :) - I have a no limit pact with both of them for the lifetime. The Cigs smoked with them shall never be counted.
  • I still reserve the right to smoke for Pleasure when I am very happy or too much tensed or SAD.
  • Smoke or not to smoke at any point of time shall be my discretion forever.
I feel ki Duniya mein kissi ko isse koi fight nahin chahiye....Kissi ko hai to abhi bol do.....

Nashe mein kon nahin hai Mujhe Batayo Jara

So here it is folks, the song illuminates a series of emotions that hovers in one's psyche as one gets more and more into the song.

Aakhir kya hai aisa isme....

The song begins with the perception which ignorant crowd have deepend down there soul about being a "Sharabi", being in "Nasha" and the lyricist revolts and rebukes them. Finally proving the fact "Nasha Sharab mein hota to Nachti Botal" - Had there been any sedative (drug) effect in Alcohol, then the bottle would have danced.

The song continues to .....arre kya ker raha hoon mein....Hindi mein likhta hoon , ye firangiyon ki bhasha mein likhte likhte dimag ka dahi ho gaya....

haan to sathiyon.....

To aakhir kya hai Nasha,

Nasha koi bhoot nahin jo uter jayega, Nasha to woh khushboo hai, jo ek baar koi soongh le, to uski ruh mein bus jaati hai, Nasha woh Paimana hai, jo hamesha chalakta rehta hai.

Nasha to woh awaaz hai, jisse agar Sau Taalon mein bhi bund rakho to bhi sunai degi.

Song then progesses with all the comparison -

Kisi ko husn ka guroor, jawani ka nasha, Kissi ko dekhe Sanson se ubherta hai Nasha....
- Kya baat hai...cha gaye....

"tum to apne Husn ke guroor mein alwida keh ker chal diye,
Kash ki ek Baar mud ke dekha hota,
Kash ki ek baar mud ke dekha hota,
Hum Mohabbat ke junoon mein Sir kalum kiye baithe the."

Ye wala kisi aur se suna tha -
"Kya Gadi Gadi, Dojakh ka khauff dikhata hai, E - Aalim,
Yahan Roz nighahein Milti hain and Roj Kayamat hoti hai"

"Nashe mein kon nahin hai Mujhe Batayo Jara, Kise hai Hosh Mere saamne to layo jara"
- tune kya socha, ki humko thukra ker tujhe Jannat naseeb hogi,
Ja Kal tere Khuda ke saath baith ker, humne do jaam piye.

Aakhir
jab sab apne Nashe mein the, to mujhe kyun utha ker le gaya,
Kuch der to aur so leta mein bhi apni kabr mein akele.

Tu to khada ho jayega khuda ke saamne khali haath leker,
Mein kiss muh se jayoon, mujhse to woh phir Jaam magega.

Ye wale bhi kahin sune tha,
Agar dum hai tere Ebaadut mein to Masjid ko hila ke dikha,
Nahin to aa Baith, Do ghoont le, aur Masjid ko Hilta Dekh.

...to be continued .....

SMS Joke of the day

This was there on Times of India's Web Edition of Delhi Times.

"Kuch log kuch Ghante kerte hain,
Kuch log saari raat kerte hain,
Tab jaker hota hai unka,
Mobile Charge"

English translation for No Hindi Folks

"Some people do it for Few Hours,
Some other do it whole night,
Then and only then they get there,
Mobile Charged"

Reading Myself

There was nothing significant to do on this sunday morning (oops afternoon) so I started reading my own blog.

Altogether different experience, on some post I desired to comment, on some felt sad on the fact that I was sad in those days, then smiled on some other post, wondered on innocence and nonsense of some other posts.

"Hirdu", who wrote those posts was altogether different from the "Hirdu" who is inking the blog now a days, Todays "Hirdu" has evoluted himself from all those posts. But one phenomenon is unchanged, Both "Hirdu" are equally true and natural, they are phrasing whatever, and whenever they desire to phrase.

Here are links to few posts I noticed again in my blog

purple: I have my cubicle

purple: !! Walking Down !!

purple: I don't know

purple: "Then you say Why No Blog Today ?

purple: Till there' s space, I 'll stare at it

purple: Waana Say Few Words to Sbdy !!

purple: A thing of beauty !!

purple: !! You say I am Greedy !!

purple: !! Another ME to be HANGED !!

purple: !! Let the bell ring !!

purple: !! Let me Sleep now !!

purple: !! Fortunate ! Am I ?

purple: !! Aaj Phir !!

It sometimes strange, that I was able to write it all.

This song from Lawaris, immortalised by Amitabh was played several times, while Holi Celebrations at Seattle.

There was no liquor and even in the chilling rainfall, smoking was banned (though me and a friend of mine had 2 behind the wall :)) coz the married females were against it and even then whenever this song was there, ME and SANDY shall start jumping on the floor marginalised at the dance floor, and shall pull every other guy or gal to come on the floor for dance. The enthu was simply awesome.

Before I move on the subject further let me just give here the list of songs played on which Dance and Enthu was Marvellous, We downloaded and smoked a Audio CD (for Better Quality) for the event.

here is the list, Copy this folks, fun & enthu assured :)

3. Balle Balle - Bride and Prejudice

18.Mere Haathon mein Nau Nau Churiya Hain
19. Berang Zindagi hai - Naach
20. Rabba Rabba - Aks

These songs were continuously playing on Holi-day. But there is a series of events that happened a day before.

We all were wondering that who shall be preparing "Gujiya" (A North Indian Sweet Mithai Prepared like Samosa but insteal of Potato mixture use a Sweet Mixture of Khoya (Khoya Khoya Chand) and other Dry Fruits). None of Gals came forward so Me and Sandy accepted the challenge of preparing them.

We two are almost always in sync to leave no stones unturned when something like this is to be done. Last time when I was in Seattle, we prepared "Aloo & Mooli ke Paranthe" (from 10:30 PM to 2:30 AM in Night).

Since its next to impossible to arrange Khoya in US, we decided to go with "Rajbhog" (Mithai Prepared with Khoya). So we bought all the other stuffs, went home and started. Now we were lacking the main ingredient at that time - THE BEER, so I managed with Continuous Cigs and Sandy thought about his GF.

He made one fast phone call to his Mom in India and then I made one to my MOM to confirm that we have all the procedure in order. At 2:30 AM we released Beta version of "Gujiya"and had 2 DEMO setups ready. Though I donot have much regard for the LORD, but we unanimously decided to put one in front of Shivji and Try the 2nd one.

3 Beta issues were found namely,

a) Gujiya's are bigger then normal - P3 Issue
b) Gujiya's are too much khasta - P2 Issue
c) We need to add More Sugar in the Mixture - P1 Issue

So we decided that we shall fix this in Final GA (General Availability) of the Product.

All was settled, we both looked at each other, It was raining heavily outside, "What to do ? Should we start with the Build or Should we go and have some fun ?". As you all know what we must have decided, We both then went for long drive, Came back at 3:45 Approx and Slept.

Morning around 8 0'clock, phone rings, we were awaken. O Lord !! We have have to build the release for GA.

"Okay !! No panic, Sandy !! You go and get fresh, I shall have My Cig", Hirdu says.
"Okay Hirdu !! After Cig, Fix the Beta issues and then we shall blow !", Sandy says.

I finished my Cig, and fixed some issues, Sandy came out of Restroom, I went in, Sandy started. I was Back, We started working in Sync, From 9 AM to 10:30 AM Approximately 30 Gujiyas Were Prepared. Wow !! What a performance. !! We are getting Late!!.

"Sandy !! You are a lazy Guy !!", Hirdu says.
"Hirdu !! tu pitega aaja M & R se !!", Sandy exclaims smiling.

"Okay Run Fast !! Pack up .....", Hirdu finally dashes out.

So folks this is the Part 1- holi preparations

You scored as atheism. You are... an atheist, though you probably already knew this. Also, you probably have several people praying daily for your soul.

A walk in the clouds..: Kilroy is here

A walk in the clouds..: Kilroy is here

Simply Informative !!

!! Black - What a movie !!

Watched this yesterday !!! What a strong movie, strong charaters, the charater classification and there architecture is too strong too believe.

There are very few movies which had moved my psyche to the soul.

To name a few - Anand, Life is Beautiful, Scent of Woman, Pyasa, Final Destination, Choker Bali, Forest Gump, Final Destination et al.

So what was so special about "Black", The special thing about BLACK is the character which Amitabh B played. He was unbelievably dedicated towared his assignment and towards his goal.

The pain, sorrow, loss, delight, adamancy, emotion, contradiction, silence, color et al involved is great.

Definately a collectors delight. !!

Shall write more about it sometime

!! Jo Chup !!

Jo Chup Rahega Jabaanein-E-Khanzar
Lahoo pukaarega Aasteen ka
-From Movie Jurm

If the tongue of the dagger is silent,
than the blood from the arm shall give a cry.

another fine dialogue.

!! Socha Na Tha !!

Socha na tha ki, Mohabbat mein kabhi aisa hoga,
Royegi tu, aur dil ko Mere Karar Hoga.
- Dialogue in Movie "Jurm".

Never had a clue, that there shall ever be a time in love,
That thy shall cry and I shall be the one feeling the delight.

Kafi acha sa laga ye dialogue sun ker, Pata nahin kyun, But accha laga.

!! Wrote 2 letters yesterday in Hindi !!

I don't know after how many years, I wrote something in Hindi (Devnagri) Script.

While I was coming back from Seattle after Holi, a thought came to my mind, that its has been years, since I wrote a letter and that too in Hindi Script, so I bought stamps from the airport, came back to office and arranged for envelops and sheets.

In the evening wrote letters and posted to my friends. Wow !! What a feel it was !! and What a fun-tastic relief it was, to be still able to write by hand and in Hindi.

I was amazed over the fact that, I have forgotten writing few alphabets, was doing spelling mistakes and the handwriting was pathetically bad. And I was the one who scored 90% in Hindi in my ICSE (X).

As I continued to write, I started feeling pain in my palm, coz its been approximately 9 years, since I wrote in Hindi, and approximately 5 years (after I passed from college), I was really writing something on paper.

After I finished writing, I read my self written letters 4-5 times so as to reduce the probability of errors, spelling mistakes, grammatical errors et al., and admired my own style of writing !!

The delight and joy, I felt during the process and after it was overwhelming.

There was a time, when we use to receive letters and greetings almost every week and use to write the replies over the weekend.

The technology advancements have made hand written letters a endangered species.

Gone are the days, when family and friends were closely knitted by the fabric of handwritten letters, lovers use to send letters in pink envelops with fragrance of Roses and people use hide them in books.

So folks !! What are you waiting for !! Don't you desire to feel the joy and delight I felt, Why don't you go and start writing a letter and post it to your loved ones today. Go to Post-Office, Buy stamps, Post them via ordinary post (NO Couriers) and then wait for the reply. Make somebody feel awe, happiness, delight, joy all at the same time and let the recipients wonder.

Have my word on it ! I assure you, that thy shall also feel unparallel joy.

Incase any of you desires a handwritten letter received in there mailbox, send in your postal address and thy shalt receive a handwritten letter from me in Hindi (I Prefer) or English.

So what say !! Write a letter today !!
