Invaded by the Mughals, The Portuguese, The Dutch, The French and the British. 

Imprisoned in the bonds of slavery. 

Mother India was plundered, looted, and ruined at every step. 

Yet, there was no dearth of bravery. 

Mangal Pandey laid the foundation for the freedom struggle through the Sepoy Mutiny.  

A revolution that ignited the light of rebellion 
to overthrow the rule of despotism and tyranny. 

Mahatma Gandhi, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, and Sardar Patel shaped India's destiny. 

Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi, Begum Hazrat Mahal, Rani Velu Nachiyar gave the British many a sleepless nights. 

Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azaad, Rajguru paved the way for the imperialists' upcoming flight. 

Who can forget the massacre at Jalianwala Bagh where thousands of patriots lost their lives? 

Some shedding tears over their children, some over their husbands and wives. 

The struggle wasn't only for freedom but also from the crimes against humanity. 

To  teach the perpetrators of these heinous crimes and to curb their insanity. 

She might have been injured for centuries together. 

Yet, She holds grudge against anyone never. 

She still holds her head high. 

Mother India's glory now reaches the sky. 

The birthplace of civilization, 

She is my inspiration. 

India is the symbol of love and peace.

I am proud to be India's daughter. May Her fame keep growing overseas. 

Mother India is the living example of unity in diversity. 

Forgiveness makes Her a Unique Entity. 

Rabindranath Tagore, Sir C.V. Raman, Amartya Sen, and Mother Teresa  made India proud. 

I pledge my loyalty to and serve Mother India, 
I  would  declare this  anytime aloud.

Jai Hind! Vande Mataram. 

My dear countrymen ( fellow citizens of the country).

Fill your eyes with tears.

Do remember the sacrifice of the martyrs who laid down their lives for the nation.

You should never forget them.

That’s why I am narrating this story.

When Himalaya was wounded,

Our freedom was at peril,

Our soldiers fought until their last breath.

Then, laid down as corpses.

Some were Sikhs, Some Jats, Some Marathas

Some Gurkhas, Some Madrasi,

Every one who died was a brave Indian Citizen.

The blood stream that gushed through the mountains belonged to the Indians.

My dear countrymen ( fellow citizens of the country).

Fill your eyes with tears.

Do remember the sacrifice of the martyrs who laid down their lives for the nation.

Good morning friends,

Good evening friends,

This is a tribute to one of my favorite actresses of Bollywood, who, unfortunately is no more. I actually hero worshipped her. When I was six, I used to watch her dance and tried to copy her steps. I was so crazy that I would go through any film magazine just to look at her pretty face. Now I am not much of a movie buff and I don’t have any favorite as such after an era dominated by Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla and Kajol.

Sridevi ( The Economic Times)

Shree Amma Yanger Ayyapan , popularly, called Sridevi, was born on 13th August, 1963 at Meenampatti village[18] near Sivakasi of present-day Tamil Nadu, India. Her mother tongue was Telugu but she could also speak Tamil fluently. She has been and will always be one of my most favorite actresses, besides the gorgeous diva, Madhuri Dixit.

She began acting at the tender age of 4 with her debut in Kandhan Karunai in 1967, where she played the role of Lord Murugan, followed by another movie, Thunaivan, playing the same character of Lord Murugan. Her first Telugu film as a child artist was Maa Nanna Nirdoshi in 1970, while Malayalam movie featuring her for in Poompatta (1971) got her the Kerala State Film Award for Best Child Artist. Not many know that Sridevi made her entry into Bollywood as a child artist with the film Rani Mera Naam in 1972, followed by the blockbuster Julie in 1975. She starred opposite Kamal Hassan in nearly 27 films including, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi, while The Tamil Superstar Rajnikant acted with her in 17 movies.

As a heroine, she made her debut with Solva Saawan opposite Amol Palekar in 1979. Her first commercial hit was Himmatwala opposite Jeetendra in 1983. This was followed by a string of hits includingย Mawaaliย (1983),ย Justice Chaudhuryย (1983),ย Tohfaย (1984),ย Naya Kadamย (1984),ย Maqsadย (1984),ย Masterjiย (1985),ย Karmaย (1986),ย Nazranaย (1987),ย Watan Ke Rakhwaleย (1987),ย Mr. Indiaย (1987),ย Waqt Ki Awazย (1988) andย Chandniย (1989) . Besides, some of her most memorable performances include: Sadmaย (1983),ย Naginaย (1986),ย ChaalBaazย (1989)ย Lamheย (1991),ย Khuda Gawahย (1992),ย Gumrahย (1993),ย Laadlaย (1994), andย Judaaiย (1997). She married film producer Boney Kapoor and took a hiatus from Hindi Cinema to raise her daughters, Jhanvi and Khushi. Her comeback film English Vinglish in 2012 directed by Gauri Shinde was highly successful and her last film was Mom in 2017, for which she received National Award posthumously. She was so versatile that she could do any kind of role and truly regarded as the “First Female Superstar” of Indian cinema.

Her awards include :

Filmfare Awards

Best Actress

( Chaalbaaz) ( 1989)

( Lamhe) (1991).

National Award

Mom (2018) ( posthumously).

Besides, she has won numerous awards like the Nandi Award, the Tamil Nadu State Film Award, the Kerala State Film Award, four Filmfare Awards, including a Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award and three Filmfare Awards South. I can never forget her Charlie Chaplin act in the blockbuster ‘ Mr. India,’ the movie which catapulted her to superstardom. Her career spanned over 50 years in the film industry with 300 films to her credit. It’s said that as a person, she was shy and an introvert but once she faced camera, she set the screen on fire. She’s said to have turned down a movie with Superstar Amitabh Bacchan , because her role wasn’t meaty enough.

She was honored with Padmashri in 2013.Unfortunately, Bollywood lost one of its most charismatic Queen Bees, Sridevi, on February 24, 2018 at Dubai. Her death was caused due to accidental drowning. She was given full state honors during her cremation. Physically, she may not be here but I love watching her come alive on TV when her movie is aired. This is one of my all time favorite song of hers. Do watch and enjoy.

The lead actors of this movie, Chandni, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, and Sridevi, and the female playback singer, Lata Mangeshkar have all passed away and moved on to the next world. This is a very special song for me.

( Information and image : Wikipedia)

Adeline Virginia Woolf, better known as Virginia Woolf, was an outstanding English writer, who inspired many women to take up writing. She was considered a pioneer in the use ofย stream of consciousnessย as a narrative device. Stream of consciousness directly reflects the character or the narrator’s thought process either by way of a loose interior monologue or through their actions and expressed in words. James Joyce also used this technique in his novel ‘ Ulysses‘ in (1922).

Virginia Woolf was born as Adeline Virginia Stephen on 25 January 1882, at London, England to Julia Prinsep Jackson and Leslie Stephen as their seventh child in a blended family of eight that also included modernist painterย Vanessa Bell. As a child, she was educated at home and learned English classics and Victorian literature. Further, she joined the Ladies’ Department ofย King’s College London, from 1897 to 1901, where she pursued the study of Classics and History. She also came into the contact of the reformers advocating women’s higher education and theย women’s rights movement.

Virginia Woolf’s writing career began in 1900, and was encouraged by her father to continue writing. After the death of her father in 1904, Virginia moved from Kensington to Bloomsbury with her family. Virginia Woolf collaborated with her brothers’ intellectual friends to form the Bloomsbury group that sponsored artistic and literary talent. She married Leonard Woolf in 1912 and they established the Hogarth Press. The couple moved to Sussex where they rented a home in 1940. Woolf led a controversial life over her alleged romantic relationships with women, especially, Vita Sackville-West, another author who published her books through Hogarth Press. Their literature drew inspiration from their relationship which continued until Woolf’s death.

The movement of feminist criticism focussed on the works of Virginia Woolf in the 1970s. Her work was considered to inspire feminism. She became popular with her books like Mrs Dallowayย (1925),ย To the Lighthouseย (1927) andย Orlandoย (1928). I read her famous essay ย A Room of One’s Ownย (1929) in 2014 , as a part of my curriculum for MA (English Literature). Her first published work was the novel, The Voyage Out, in 1915. Her books are so popular that they have been translated into more than 50 languages.

Unfair, this exceptionally talented writer and a creative genius suffered from mental illness for which she was institutionalized. As per Dalsimer (2004),  she showed symptoms similar to bipolar disorder. She already attempted suicide twice and finally, drowned herself in the River Ouse at Lewes in 1941 at the age of 59. It’s sad that some talented writers like Ernest Hemingway, Sylvia Plath and Virginia Woolf resorted to these extreme steps.
Legends like these might have left their physical bodies but they are immortal and continue to live through their books which enthrall the lovers of English literature. Woolf’s works are certainly a priceless treasure to be cherished.

Meenal, ( the devil), took everyone by surprise with a pleasant change in her demeanor. She started doing household work to help her mother and would also run errands for her father. Soon, she managed to win everybody’s love and affection. A month had passed, since she had escaped from the confines of the mobile and sent the poor girl’s soul to languish behind in the forest of darkness.

She became more studious and also helped those lagging behind in their studies. Her popularity soared to a new level. Her parents couldn’t be more proud of her. But everything comes at a cost. Meenal’s mother, Savita, was the first one to be affected. She started feeling tired after a couple of days. The devil had started feeding off her energy. Meenal had a wicked gleam in her eye everytime her mother asked her to do something because the latter was feeling weary.

Her father,Vijay, started noticing that whenever Meenal offered her help, it started affecting his wife, who no longer welcomed him with a warm smile. He was worried. In order to test his theory, he asked her to pay the electricity bill and gave her his card details. She did as she was told. Later that evening, he experienced a mild headache and absent mindedly, asked Meenal to give him a glass of water to take the medicine for the headache. His headache further intensified, reminding him not to seek any more favor from her.

Meanwhile, she finished preparing food and told her mother, ” Mom, I am going to college. Don’t forget to take the pill for your weakness. I think you have anemia. I will take you to the doctor after coming home.” Her father looked up from the newspaper and said, ” I will take her to the doctor. You concentrate on your studies. We don’t want to burden you with additional responsibilities.”
The devil in Meenal’s body got alarmed. Had her father realized what was going on? It was time to make him forget everything. Meenal took a deep breath and forced a smile, ” Now, dad. Just chill. Isn’t it my duty to take care of both of you ? Do you really think I am going to create any trouble for Mom? ” Vijay looked into her eyes. The innocence in her eyes and her sincere voice won him over. He mentally took himself to task for doubting his lone daughter. In fact, the devil had successfully hypnotized him to forget all his suspicion.

No sooner did she arrive at college, than a strange girl wearing a pink tank top with a pair of blue jeans, rushed towards her with her fists clenched. ” You bitch, ” she screamed, ” What did you do to my boyfriend? He’s clearly smitten over your new charming personality. I liked you more when you were a snob. Don’t you have Anil as your boyfriend? Stop stealing others’ boyfriends or I will teach you a lesson, you will never forget.” Meenal smiled at her nemesis, Manju, who kept on calling her names. She said, ” Listen, whoever you are! I don’t have any fucking idea of which boyfriend you are talking about. I know that you amassed quite a string of puppets who dance to your tunes in exchange for the service you are rendering. I would advise you to stop ranting and search for your soul within. Do you want me to share your tales of infidelity all over the city? “

Manju stopped her verbal tirade in shock. How the hell did Meenal know about her secret affairs? She had been quite meticulous in keeping her affairs a secret.
She almost whispered, ” Please forgive me, Meenal. I will never bother you again? I am willing to pay any price to keep my infidelities secret.”

Meenal’s smile widened, ” Is that a promise? ” Manju nodded and Meenal whispered into her ears, ” I want your soul in exchange for my discretion. Go and end your life after writing a note about your guilty conscience pricking you for doubting your boyfriend. You can have my boyfriend, Anil, whom I have already sent to hell. ” Manju simply nodded. She left without saying a word. A huge crowd had gathered around them. Meenal received a huge round of applause for her tackling Manju.

The poor girl took out a notebook and scribbled her suicide note, leaving it, on the hood of a car at the parking. She went to the terrace of one of the buildings and screamed as she plunged to death. The whole college was shocked at the turn of events. They had never witnessed any student committing suicide within the college campus. The police and the ambulance arrived shortly, as the college principal declared the rest of the day off for the students who were visibly shaken and too scared. Manju was a big bully but no one had any idea that she would resort to suicide. Little did anyone know, that it was the handiwork of Meenal, the devil.

When Meenal came back from college, she saw her mother waiting for her. She appeared to be relieved on seeing her daughter. She said, ” Our neighbor, Mr. Rao, told me that there was an unfortunate incident in your college and that a student had ended her life. I sincerely prayed it wasn’t you. God knows what I would have done if I lost you as well! “
Meenal hugged her mother. The devil inside her, had never experienced a maternal love. He was touched by her sincere, selfless love. This was something he hadn’t experienced. Against his inherent quality of tormenting people in exchange for a favor, he decided to stop feeding on her energy and instead focus his attention elsewhere.

The original Meenal, was now stuck in the region surrounding the paradise. God appeared to her in the form of Jesus. She had no words to express her happiness. She folded her hands and bowed her head reverentially. She said, ” I am sorry, God. Since I am a Hindu, I don’t know how the Christians offer their prayers. I hope You forgive me and save me from being trapped here forever, unless, of course, it’s ordained by destiny that I should stay here.’ God was pleased with her honest revelation and said, ” My dear Child, It’s your thoughts and prayers that matters. God is always one and He belongs to all. Some call Him Ram, Some call Him Allah, and Some Jesus. Unfortunately, My Children, whom I brought into this beautiful world called Earth, have divided Me into several thousand pieces and baying for each other’s blood. How can a Father Or a Mother watch His or Her children suffer In pain? I am here to help you out. You may have to spend a couple of days more as the fruits of your evil past deeds have caught up with you. As soon as the punishment ends, you will go back to your world. Until then, enjoy the company of your sister and enjoy the grand feasts.” He smiled upon her and vanished. Suddenly, Meenal felt a new wave of calmness and love take over her. She was quite happy to serve the term of her punishment.

Watch out for the next episode as Meenal the devil continues to torment people and an unexpected twist in the take.

Note : I believe God is one. He is Our Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesh, Lord Muruga, Lord Vishnu for Hindus, Allah for Muslims, Guru Nanakdevji for Sikh devotees, Jesus for Christians etc. How can we be so cruel and heartless to destroy the places of worship? Let Him guide us to develop love and fraternity towards all religions and respect Him in all the forms.

Hi Friends,

On the occasion of Rakshabandhan, I would like to share this beautiful song which is dedicated by a brother to his sister who’s completely changed. This song is sung by the legendary Kishore Kumar from the movie Hare Rama Hare Krishna in 1971.

The translation is :

Phoolon Ka Taaron Ka Sabka Kehna Hai
Ek Hazaron Mein Meri Behna Hai
Sari Umar Hame Sang Rehna Hai

Translation:ย Flowers And Stars, All Of Them Say
One In Thousands Is My Sister
All Our Lives We Have To Stay Together.

Jabse Meri Aankhon Se Ho Gayi Tu Door

Tabse Sare Jeevan Ke Sapne Hain Choor

Aankhon Mein Neend Na Dil Mein Chaina Hai

Ek Hazaron Mein โ€ฆ

Since You Went Far Away From My Eyes

Since Then All The Dreams Of Life Have Been Shattered.

There Is No Sleep In Eyes And No Peace In Mind

Dekho Hum Tum Dono Hain Ek Dali Ke Phool

Maein Na Bhoola Tu Kaise Mujhko Gai Bhool

Aa Mere Paas Aa Keh Jo Kehna Hai

Ek Hazaron Mein โ€ฆ

Look You And I Are Both Flowers From The Same Branch

I Never Forgot You, How Could You Forget Me

Come Close To Me, Say What You Have To Say

Jivan Ke Dukhon Se, Yuun Darte Nahin Hain

Aise Bachake Sach Se Guzarte Nahin Hain

Sukh Ki Hai Chaah To, Dukh Bhi Sehnaa Hai

Ek Hazaron Mein โ€ฆYou Canโ€™t Be Scared Of The Sorrows Of Life Like This

You Canโ€™t Escape Truth This Way

If Desiring Happiness Then You Also Have To Suffer Sorrow

One In Thousands Is My Sister

Translation source : Bollyblog | Deewana deewana | Old is Gold

What a beautiful song! I miss my brother who’s in Muscat now.

Hello Friends,

Today is the most auspicious and beautiful occasion of Rakshabandhan, in which a sister ties a silk, decorative thread called Rakhi on her brother’s ( elder as well as younger) wrist, praying for his good health and welfare. She also gives him sweet and in turn, a brother promises to protect his sister from all kinds of danger. This is the most sacred relationship. So, I wish all the men across the world except my husband, a Happy Rakshabandhan. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€. I wish to share a special poem on this occasion.

You are my most precious treasure. 
My love for you is way beyond measure. 
We are the life and soul of our mother. 
You are God's gift to me, dear brother. 

I remember the time when I sang you a lullaby. 
I would try to keep you entertained so that you wouldn't cry. 
I would read out the stories from the book of fairytales. 
You were fond of the sea creatures like sharks and whales. 

We might have fought with each other, calling names. 
I do miss playing our childhood games. 
We might have personal differences but that won't affect our relationship. 
When you get hurt, I feel the pain. 
Such is our friendship. 

Her father and her brother are the only men, a woman can trust. 
While the others eye her with pure lust. 
You, my dear brother, always make me smile. 
You have an amazing sense of humor and a unique style. 

This is not just a decorative thread (Rakhi) but a strong bond of love. 
Witnessed by the earth and the heaven above. 
May you be blessed with a good health, and prosperity and a happy, long life. 
May you never witness any strife. 

This thread of love called Rakhi, I tie upon your wrist. 
Just promise to be with me always, this is what I ask for a gift. 
No matter if we live miles apart. 
We always live in each other's heart.
