Movie Character I Want to Play #TadkaTuesday

We are all in some way or the other fascinated by the stories that are created on the celluloid, knowing fully well that they are imaginative and ingenious to say the least with an exemption of some being inspired from true events.
We have all lived vicariously the journey of the characters while watching a movie with some even carrying the feeling home. Who doesn’t want to be in a dreamland living a life “king-size”? With living in huge mansions, traveling in private jets, so on and so forth. With everything at your command, life being at ease with things around and with there being always a happy ending. Who wouldn’t want such a life and I being no exception. But then there are so many movies and numerous characters that have transported me to a utopian world, if I may use that here.
But then when I was asked this question there is one character that stood tall amongst scores of others that have made me identify with them. The biggest reason amongst others was that it would be every aspiring man’s dream life. It is that of Kabir Thapar aka Bunny in the movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
Kabir at one hand has a dream job of traveling around the world and covering the best that the universe offers so also gets to experience the finer things in life first hand. But then on the other hand he has shown that to achieve you got to dream first - “care to dream & dare to achieve” is brought out clearly by him and I would love to live by that cliché. He has shown a strong desire to go for his dreams and was ready to make whatever sacrifices that were needed. That is another aspect that inspired me and made identify with him.
Also Kabir brings to the board another very important aspect that we lack in our society, is that of agreeing to disagree. Kabir has been brutally honest throughout the movie, which is what I am too. He is a very social person but managed to keep his personal life separate. That brings me another facet of his personality and which I dearly adore in my life is that having you close group of people, for whom  you would always want to go that extra mile.
So to wrap it up I would just not want to play the character but imbibe and reproduce all of his aesthetics in everyday life.

5 Takeaways From #PM #Modi's Speech To The #US #Congress


Source: PTI Photo
  1. Always touch base with common factors with the host and you will immediately build a lasting connection.
  2. Use humor in your speech no matter how professional the occasion and formal the speech may be.
  3. It’s irrelevant that you have a heavy vernacular accent to your English, it’s your confidence, presentation and eloquence is all that matters not even your vocabulary.
  4. Make discreet use of aphorism to help drive your point through without having to offend anyone.
  5. Most Important - remember time is an essence of a speech and therefore don’t drag your topics to a point that you lose your audience.

55 Fiction # 27 - First Love

Could never have had enough, but it was time to make a call. To do or not to do was the question that kept oscillating in her mind freaking her out. After maneuvering her mind for long hours she could finally come to terms with it and decided to return the book to the library.

An Ode to Maa

To tribute my Mother who I fondly call #Maa even using all alphabets in all probable attributable words would not be enough and certainly not enough is a day. So I do it in my small way. We always get interested in celebrating things on a larger scale and in grand style. But what we forget is life is celebrated the most in mundane and smaller things that we do and appreciate in the simplest way.

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2016 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's.  Today's word is "Z".
My theme is “Human Characteristics”.  Today I chose “Zen”.

Sprints on veranda
Shameless screaming in schoolyards
Fearless me

When did I lose that?
The zeal of a bee, I had
Blissful used to be

Without distortion
Sans figment, happy again
Zen like want to be


As children we are fearless of the world and our only agenda is to be happy. We mingle and get along with anyone and everyone and never bother about who that person is and which family/religion/cast/creed so and so forth, s/he comes from. However as we grow up we tend to forget the ultimate goal in life of being happy and tend to tilt towards becoming more snobby and selective as a result of which we are illusioned from the real purpose of life and living.

Young Mind

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2016 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's.  Today's word is "Y".
My theme is “Human Characteristics”.  Today I chose “Young Mind”.

Bursting energy
Ever ready keen young mind
New start, age a count


As they say “it’s all in the mind, age is just a number”. It so true, as long as one has desire, fervor and energy and is ready to go for it with all heart, no age can stop one from setting new goals and achieving them!
