Initial tranquil period is not getting more and more eventful everyday and the toothless wonder gains strength to struggle and move forward. Nonu had her first fall from the bed in the hall, on 10th of October, a day before we left for Kalol for her Annprashan. It was a good fun, Mummy and Papa were so happy, spent a great deal of effort on the ceremony. Nonu has starter touching our lives with her angelic touch, this was one trip which was quite long and without any sad episodes, if one doesn't act too touchy and count in casual twists which is quite normal in any household. Expectation of perfection from any end and not counting the goods done by other party is recipe for disaster. I can not feel more greatful to Papa for reaching out to Sonu's family and this time I fleetingly held him by shoulder, since probably my childhood. Sonu's parents also joined in together with Pinkoo and Bittoo and Nonu could really enjoy unabated attention for the six days. Sonu's father comes out as a very proper and nice person. Coming back there was no reservation so we took a flight. Nonu had her first flight experience on 19th of October, 2008. Much to our surprise she was all happy and relaxed during the flight. Lucky baby, it had taken me 31 years for my first air travel, in extremely stressful circumstances. Now she has become so engaged and seems to be missing me as I go to office even when her mother is with her. I am really concerned what she will do when Sonu also starts going to the office. Now she can actually convey her happiness when she finds me back from the office as she slowly breaks into smile. She actually breaks into smile so easily, I at time worry about the transparency in her emotion which although valued initially later looked up as a weakness. Things are peaceful in the office, waiting for the MTNL tender. Hope we make it. If we do, I trust, things will get easier. In any case, as the market recoils in recession, it is easy to get sweaty behind the ears. Again starting day after I have five days holiday, which will give me some time to spend with Nonu. My lack of self-discipline is making me angry with myself, as I plan to spend mornings with Nonu, so that we can spend some time together in silence but every day I am not able to get up in time. Also health wise not feeling very good, it worries me to think what will happen should something wrong happens. Was feeling little congestion in the evening. Savings are also very less, Huawei settlement is yet to come by. Another effect of Nonu coming to our life is that it has made me very aware of the plight of parents. At this old age, how lonely people. You fight all your growing up years to gain the centre stage, as you have kid, you start stepping sideways from the limelight, until there is no light left in your life. I hope, all could understand this and support in my duties. Hope Nonu will grow with love for grandparents as is usual course of life most of the times.
she has almost started talking to us in a language that she only could comprehend. Strange, she still tries to talk to us even when we do not understand a word that she says, and will she also end up showing her hands in air claiming parents just don't understand. I hope she does not, but which parent does not and ends up with exactly same experience. One good thing is how close she is to Sonu. It seems there was a void in her life, I do not know, before marriage or even after that which has been so nicely filled up by this little wonder. They are almost like two friends talking to each other endlessly. Yesterday Nonu went for the first time in the slinger, first to the park and then to Ansals. She was quite happy in that, she can sleep at will, wake up and look around whenever she felt like it.

कांग्रेस संत समागम - Congress Sant Samagam

आज रात्रि जब प्रात:काल डिम्पल बाबा जागे, उनका हृदय नई ऊर्जा से प्रकाशमान था। कल ही काँग्रेस कार्यकारिणी ने उनकी तुलना किसी अचार से की थी और ध्वनिमत से सनातन धर्म का रक्षक बताया था। डिम्पल बाबा के बताया गया था कि अचार बनने के बाद हिंदू धर्म ध्वजा की रक्षा का दायित्व उन पर बैठता है। बाबा को खुद को पिकल कहा जाना पसंद तो नहीं आया था और वह जानना चाहते को अति उत्सुक थे कि ये हिंदू पिकल का इतना सम्मान क्यों करते हैं। हालाँकि डिम्पल बाबा के उत्साह का सबसे बड़ा कारण यह था कि ब्रह्मऋषि डिम्पल घोषित होने का बाद वह सामाजिक मर्यादाओं से इतर हो गए थे, और बक़ौल बाल ऋषि पूनावाला उन्हें भाँग गाँजा की निर्बाध व्यवस्था का अधिकार था। बालऋषि के अनुसार- राहुल जी इज जस्ट लाईक दैट डूड फ्राम माऊँटेन- शिव। सोच कर ही महर्षि डिम्पल के शरीर मे फुरेरियाँ उठी। नानी ने जब पवित्र वेटिकन के जल से ब्लेसित किया था तब उन्हें कहाँ भान होगा कि एक दिन उनका पौत्र हिंदू धर्म की दिशा तय करेगा। 
बहरहाल नव-नियुक्त ब्रह्मऋषि डिम्पल बाबा ने, घड़ी को देखा। बारह बज गए थे और प्रात: सूर्य वंदना का समय था। रोलेक्स राजर्षि को भी अब पहुँच…

लँगड का एमाराई

(Hindi Satire, inspired by immortal writing of late  Shri Shrilal Shukl and his legendary Novel- Rag Darbari)


लंगडवा एम आर आई करवाने का सोच रहा था। फिर सोचा पता नहीं मशीन कहाँ कहाँ से जुड़ी होगी।

खन्ना मास्टर लंगडवा के उहापोह को बड़े ध्यान से देख रहे थे। ग़रीब का कष्ट अमीर को सदा ही ध्यानाकर्षक लगता है। उसी में उसकी आत्मा का उद्धार और राजनीति का चमत्कार छुपा होता है। खन्ना मास्टर जवान और जोशीले थे। चमकीली वास्केट पहनते थे, और गंजहा की जगह ख़ुद को गंजावाला कहलाना पसंद करते थे।

गंजावाला अपना चश्मा लहराते बालों में धकेल कर, मनुहार के लहजे में बोले - “जाओ हो, काहे घबराते हो? कब तक वैद जी के पीछे घूमते रहेगे? क़स्बा क्लीनिक जा कर एमाराई करा लो।”

“हमको थोड़ा डर लग रहा है।”

लंगडवा गंजावाला के उत्साह से भयभीत हो गया। अमीर आदमी ग़रीब के सुख में अचानक रुचि लेने लगे तो अक्सर ग़रीब के लिए भय और भ्रम का कारण होता है। एक राजकुमार पहले उत्साहित हुए थे तो जवाँ मर्द कंबल और ट्राजिस्टर प्राप्त कर के लौटे थे। उसके बाद उनके घर कभी किलकारियाँ नही सुनाई पड़ी , बस मुफ़्त के रेडियो में बिनाका गीत माला सुनाई पड़ती…

Know the Naxals- A brief look at the History

There have been many debates of late on the television, in the wake of the arrests of those who are now increasingly mentioned as the Urban Naxals. I am both shocked and amused at the same time to look at the audacity of the sympathizers of Naxal terrorism, in all their starched Saris and handloom Kurtas, when they hide behind the same constitution, that the want to overthrow. They are shrill, sophisticated, eloquent and deriding. They hate the common folks, and their disdain for those who work, create and make a living, peeps through their elitist smiles. They are mostly ideologues (yes, that is some work for sustenance in the modern scheme of things), academics and well, ostensibly, writers and poets. The fact remains that when communism is the scheme of things, Naxal notices mentioning Jan Adaalats in the villages of Chattisgarh too become work of art, and corpses hanging from the electricity poles, become equivalent of art work on the roof of Sistine chapel.
The other day, Ms. Arun…
