Grow Up Kids

Masala, Hypocrisy, Fantasy, exaggeration… Despite all this I loved Slumdog Millionaire. I have heard people slamming, slapping, doing/saying whatever they want to, and in short criticizing this movie. Our own AB is one of them. Grow up kids, accept the fact. Nobody can deny that truth is always exaggerated, but still a component of truth is TRUTH.

I am very keen to read Q&A now.

P.S. AB = Amitabh Bachchan

Oye! Amritsar

This is the first time in Bangalore that I really loved the food at a restaurant, that’s Oye! Amritsar on the roof of Ruby Tuesday building at Church Street near Brigade Road. It was the authentic Punjabi Food with that typical taste and presentation. I loved the Dhaba look and the various shops inside which all had a common menu.

Kale Chane ka Shorba (Soup) was the dish I liked the most and I would recommend everybody to taste it once.

They have the lunch buffet as well, thinking of taking everybody to this place one day for lunch at least.

है एक देश पाताल गया प्‍यासी धरती के लिए अमृतघट लाने को

सीखे नित नूतन ज्ञान,नई परिभाषाएं,
जब आग लगे,गहरी समाधि में रम जाओ;
या सिर के बल हो खडे परिक्रमा में घूमो।
ढब और कौन हैं चतुर बुद्धि-बाजीगर के?

गांधी को उल्‍टा घिसो और जो धूल झरे,
उसके प्रलेप से अपनी कुण्‍ठा के मुख पर,
ऐसी नक्‍काशी गढो कि जो देखे, बोले,
आखिर , बापू भी और बात क्‍या कहते थे?

डगमगा रहे हों पांव लोग जब हंसते हों,
मत चिढो,ध्‍यान मत दो इन छोटी बातों पर
कल्‍पना जगदगुरु की हो जिसके सिर पर,
वह भला कहां तक ठोस कदम धर सकता है?

औ; गिर भी जो तुम गये किसी गहराई में,
तब भी तो इतनी बात शेष रह जाएगी
यह पतन नहीं, है एक देश पाताल गया,
प्‍यासी धरती के लिए अमृतघट लाने को।

– रामधारी सिंह “दिनकर”

Looks like this Hindi Poem “Bharat”, written by well known poet Ramdhari Singh “Dinkar”, suits well today.
