A letter to my teacher....!

Respected Ma'am,

It is 5th September today- and I know- We celebrate this day as YOUR DAY- THE TEACHER'S DAY- The day when I turned a student and you became a teacher!
Her you must be thinking- "What's new dear child??" I know nothing's new.. but something's better than new. I mean, today when I have completed 9 years of my study under you- there should be some confessions, some heart opening expressions... through which you may understand- how important you are.. how classic you are... how close you are.

So ma'am, years ago, when my parents told, "इसे स्कूल में admission दिलवाना है..." I never knew that I'll meet you...! My greatest pleasures were my school bag and box, while choosing an ice cream flavor was also an assignment. But when I met you- I met the world beyond Home."मम्मा का बिंदी, वहां से पापा का घर, फिर मम्मा का घर...बन गया 'उ'." Even 'A for apple' and 'sharing is a good habit' are the facts, that you fed in me. You made me learn what life is!

When grown up a little- I remember, you taught me ADDITION/SUBTRACTION/SPELLS/वाक्य प्रयोग AND WHAT NOT!.I remember if you told, "घर जाकर मम्मा से कहना है..SEND NAPKIN". Then the repetition the whole day was, "Ma'am ने कहा है...send napkin" And finally, Mamma had to say "हा.. तुम तो तुम्हारी Ma'am की ही सुनो..". And best of all.. you know what Ma'am- The only game that I played in my childhood was- TEACHER TEACHER. Old books in one hand and non working pen in the other- and fighting for the role of the Teacher- is something that I'll never forget!

I remember- once you slapped me in front of the whole class. I was embarrassed and hurt- and afraid too. But the next time when I improved on the same matter- It was you who appreciated me front of the whole class saying "LOOK AT THIS GIRL-I SCOLDED HER - BUT NOW- HOW NICELY HAS SHE DONE HER TASK. GOOD CHILD! KEEP IT UP!" I knew, this was almost like winning an oscar!

Ma'am, once I saw you in a party- I remember with greatest fear, I came to you saying " Good afternoon Ma'am!" and more than smiles, you talked so informally!! You are so good Ma'am.

But Ma'am, I still have some requests to make, and that is- Ma'am please don't compare me with my other classmates. I know some of us are really talented but others might not be the same. Your confidence in us makes the subject so beautiful. If you tell me- "CHILD YOU CAN DO IT!" I actually feel that I can. I mean it Ma'am- you taught me how to live- please keep the same in continuation. Ma'am YOU ARE THE BEST! PLEASE LEND ONLY 1% OF YOUR THOUGHTS. I'LL BE OBLIGED!

I DON'T KNOW- WHAT NEXT TO SAY... simply i love you ma'am!

Your lovable child

Lammmmmmmbi si gaddi...!

It's raining cats n dogs... and i'm loving it...(why??? arey... mein likh bhi to rahi hoon na... aise bhi mere blogs aajkal baarish ki tarah hi aa rahe hain... 'BIN-MAUSAM'..omg!!)

Anyways, returning to blogs is something that I love...(love like salman khan's look in bodyguard) and yes... ab... bhoomika band... pakaana shuru...!

So, it was a few days ago when one of my facebook friends posted on his wall about his NEW BRAND INDIGO (gaddi hai gaddi..). And ooparwaala jhooth na bulwaaye... before I could like it... a sort of happily jealous feeling that surrounded me!! (imagine baadal). And if you wish to ask me what is this... happily jealous feeling ??? Then dear reader, it means... main aadhi khush thi.. n aadhi jealous bhi.. Khush issliye because the friend had purchased a gaddi and dukhi+jealous issliye because only a friend had purchased one... matlab.. gaddi sirf wo kyon khareede??? main kyo nahi...???

It's something like... Saavi ... dhikkar hai tere RJ hone par; wo to ek faculty hokar bhi lammmmbi si gaddi khareed chuka... aur tu... ek RJ hokar bhi pitaji ki gaddi mein ghoomti hai... Saavi kahan hai tera zameer??? Agar so gaya hai to usspar paani daal, jaga use... khareed bhi le ek Lammmmmmmmbi si gaddi apne liye... papa ke paas do-do 4 wheelers hain... to kya hua.. hai to papa ki hi... grow up Saavi Grow up...!

So yes... I have grown up... grown up to buy a Lammmmmmmbi si gaddi for myself... Yes! (aaj hi book karwaaiye... offer seemit samay ke liye....!)

PAR AGAR MAINE GADDI KHAREED BHI LI... TO HOGA KYA??? MEANS KE... MAIN GADDI KA KAROONGI KYA??/ Here I think... you must be thinking... "Saavi Beta, gaddi ghoomne ke liye hoti hai...ghoom hi lena.. udaana mat.." Even I know... but problem is... ke in lambi gaddis I face a problem... In fact, if I narrate the same problem to you you will probably think.. Kya Saavi... ye kya tareeka hua... how so low!! To express it better...

15-20 लाख तक की AC वाली गाडी में भी.. my head rolls.. I feel giddy and uncomfortable.. In fact, whenever I sit back in a lammmmmbi si gaddi... I don't enjoy it hard... Isse much much better to Bike hai... ( see.. chalaaye koi aur , n you ennnnjoy) But I mean it,... agr aisa hi chlta ऐसी ऐशो आराम वाली आदतों के बिना...नखरो के बिना will I turn eligible to be 'अमीर'...??? :P I mean.. log to sochenge... "HOW SO DOWN MARKET..!" OMG!!

And you know what??? I personally feel it...kai baar bike is a favorable option.. like

1. Galiyo se aise nikal jaati hai jaise kareena ki kamar... It's best suited for 'Nainva', 'Itaava' ki streets.. Koi mamma ka laal sab wahan BMW ghusa ke to dikhaaye.. BMW agar nainva ke liye banegi to sirf B hi reh jaayegi (BMW-MW=B.. Sahi hai na...ha... meri maths achchi hai..!! :P) (now don't ask me... ye nainva/itava kya hai... offcourse places hain)

2.Natural hawa ka strotr hai ye... just sit back on bike..n you realize without any fan or Air conditioner you feel like Miss Hawa Hawaaai! OOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhh (jhonka hawa ka...)

3. The ultimate feeling of a 'heroine'(not kareena, sweethrt....!) comes when you are on your bike... ab waddi si gaddi ke AC main kabhi baal udte hain bhala??? (ye reshmi zulfien ghata si lagti hain...wah wah!)

4. Ek bike ki keemat tum kya jaano Rames babu... 50 hazaar se 1 lakh ke beech mein aa hi jaati hai... usme bhi itni suvidhaayein.. 2 lakh se 2-5 crore ki car se to behtar hi hai.. you see economical!

5. It promotes small families.. infact the government of India can implement as an effective means of population control... it's something like... a two wheeler and U ME AUR HUMARA BABY... ha bada ho jaaye to 4 wheeler le lena.. but you know what these days kids ask for their personal vehicles soon... (humara papa kaisa ho.. gaddi gift karne waala ho..!)

6. Imagine (not NDTV Guys!)- if Roadies was constructed with cars..or BMWs.. the guys would have watched BMWs rather than girls... Or they might be found getting know..and ofcourse the contestants should be found voting for the Bmws.. AND IMAGINE.. WHO WON ROADIES 9..??? IT'S A BMW! (CLAPS/^\ CLAPS)

7. It makes you feel the reality.. the nature.. whether it be pelting rains, sadak ke beech ke drains, ditches or be it pollution.. reality to yahi hai... it doesn't make you live a fake live the reality! (ooooo whatta imosanal punch.. good wrk saavi good!)

8. Mujhpar ek ehsaan karna.. ki mujhpar koi ehsaan na karna... I tell you sallu babu.. Bike actually saves you from any ehsaans.. I mean to say ke.. the possibility of taking or giving lift is diminished!!... so sallu babu.. khush to bahut hoge tum??

9. Practically, as and when you take a car.. it takes more time to take it out of garage/ home...gamle hatao... aur kucch ho to bhi take care.. it's almost like.. you need 1(+1)persons for handling a car.. (oye back mat le back... peeche gaay hai gaay... omg!!)

10. If an accident occurs, it's sure.. the parts of cars are harder to find... bike ke to shooker-wooker, seat cover etc etc. to sound bhi easy karte hain... than steering! dashboard grill! injection molds! papa re...!!

11. 'Bike with scooty... making couples' is something you can do.. than in car.. wahan to car par bhi car...(koi achcha lagta hai??/)

Vaise, Dear Reader... by this time (because i think I have already cooked you so hard!) I expect you have actually realized my liking for bikes or you might say..that I have possibly given allllll reasons ke...... main abhi bhi lammbi si gaddi nahi khareed rahi..!! hehehe...

But yes, there's one thing that I'll miss and that is... That ameero types feeling and expression that to give to others... (In a BMW you actually look at others like.. bike par ho... tanik lajja nahi aati tumhe..ISS CHHOTI SI GADDI PAR... KBC KHEL LETE...KUCHCH TO STANDARD BADHEGA!)

N for right now.. bye.. !

Talking to a Smoker...!!

"Naaraaz to Maharaj hote hain..." That's what the hero of my blog (today) says. Hohohoho (don't worry... you don't have to laugh, ye hansna meri side se tha...).

Now before I begin, I must readmit- blogging for me is Aishwarya Rai.. you like her always- But only if her movie is in da market, you got to see her... No PREVIOUSLY PERMITTED APPOINTMENTS you see. So dear reader, I am back... not with a bang.. but with a smoke..(Imagine fumes...!) And ya, if you didn't get this punch.. let's restart.

9th of March was NO SMOKING DAY. No Smoking bole to... cigarette, beedi aadi se aapko itni doori maintain karni hai.. jitni biwi ke saamne girlfriend se..heheh. Now by God's grace and even by Papa's furious face- I don't smoke. So the blog is not about me. It is about a smoker.

Actually, I had to celebrate the day on air- but somehow wasn't able to. Why? is a different reason. But yes, taiyyaari zaroor ki thi. So, jo taiyaari on air nahi gayi... use aap jhelo!!

It was paune 12 in the afternoon, when I asked one of my colleagues- "Sir aap smoke karte hain to kaisa lagta hai??"
Sir (confused): Kaisa kya Saavi... theek lagta hai.. par mujhe cigarette peeni nahi aati...
Me: Cigarette peeni nahi aati..?? Ye kaise hota hai??
Sir: Matlab... main peeta to hoo.. par mein dhuen ko andar nahi rakhta jaise smokers rakhte hain... sirf phhhoooooooo kar deta hoon..
I smiled at this one(iske alawa koi choice bhi nahi thi..)

Meanwhile, my onlyfemale colleague suggested.. talk to 'V'.. He might tell you better. (V.. is our 'smoker'.. so sorry uska naam nahi loongi... use bura lagega)

So I turned to V.
ME: V... how do you feel जब तुम smoke करते हो तो...?
V: आनंद... परम आनंद..
ME (surprised): You mean...संस्कार channel की भागवत कथा सुनो.. या smoke करो.. one and the same thing..??
V: नह्हीं .. पर मैडम.. आप क्या जानो ये कैसा होता है...
ME: Thanks... मुझे नहीं पता...don't wanna know it either... वैसे V...Are you a chain smoker??
V(with a killing expression): नह्ह्हीं... chain smokers to तो घंटे में 1-2.. और पूरे दिन में 20 - 25 cigarettes तो फूँक ही लेते हैं..
ME: OK... you take 10???
V : yaarrr.. 4-5 are done... (you must have seen V's expression.. he looked as if... feeling so light...जैसे बाब रामदेव की योग क्लास ज्वाइन करके आया ह... और कह रहा हो...20-25 के सामने आखिर 4-5 है ही कितना...? वाह..)
ME:So... you like it..!
He replied nothing.

V:वैसे मेरा मानना तो ये है की.. आप दुनिया में नशा कोई भी करो.. precaution ज़रूर लो. Drink हो चाहे smoke इतना हो की बॉडी को नुक्सान ना पंहुचाये. जो में करता हूँ ना... वो लोग नहीं करते.. में बॉडी का ध्यान रखता हूँ.. (seriously.. iss waqt mujhe laga V mujhe 2nd class ki bachchi samajhta hai... Saavi kya jaane.. ye aakhir hota kaisa hai..)
में क्या.. शौक के लिए भी स्टार्ट नहीं किया.. जैसे 80% boys करते है,,, शौक शौक में स्टार्ट कर लेते हैं.. पर अपन ने ऐसा नहीं किया..

ME: तो तुमने स्टार्ट क्यों किया..??
V: mmmmmmmmm वो आपको नहीं बता सकता...
ME: अच्छा में तुम्हे ऑन एयर (radio par) लेना पसंद करती...
V: पर मैं अच्छा नहीं बोलता...
ME: कोई बात नहीं.. मुझे 'V' से नहीं.. एक SMOKER से बात करनी थी...
V (with a killer look): Yaarr... SMOKER तो ऐसे कह रही हो जैसे मैंने कोई चोरी कर ली हो...ऐसे तो मेरी मम्मा ने भी कभी नहीं कहा...
ME: वो मम्मा है ना इसीलिए..
V: पर अपन भी ध्यान रखते हैं... मम्मी पापा के सामने कभी नहीं आये..
ME: So your mamma doesn't know...???
V (proudly): नहीं.. जानती हैं.. पर कभी सामने नहीं आया.. भले ही दुनिया के किसी भी कोने में जाना पड़े.. पर उनके सामने नहीं... (yahan to over proud ho gaya tha.. kis baat par donno..)
ME: मतलब... मम्मा से छिपाने के लिए... कोनो में चले जायेंगे... पर उसी मम्मा से permanently छिपाने के लिए smoking छोडेंगे नहीं...
V: आप तो embarrass कर रहे हो..
ME: Vaise.. Is it correct...दुःख दर्द भुलाने के लिए.. smoke करते हैं...
V: नह्ही नही... वो तो थक जाते हैं ना...
ME: oooooooooo.. मम्मा के चेहरे को देखने से थकान नहीं जाती... पर smoke करने से थकान चली जाती है...
V: वैसे Saavi... आपको एक बात बताता हूँ... ये सब छूट जाता है...
ME(wondering): अच्छा ...?
V: हा..मेरे आस पास वाले... मेरे जानकार कई साल पहले smoke,drink करते थे... पर...20-25 सालो से touch भी नहीं किया है..
ME (still wondering): ऐसे ही छूट जाएगा...??
V (explaining): मतलब ,... ऐसा होता है..(He looked blank)
ME: oooo तो खुद नहीं छोडेंगे.. पर खुद से छूट जाएगा...?? अच्छा how did your mamma react...जब उन्हें पहली बार पता लगा कि you had smoked...???
V: आप तो embarrass कर रहे हो.....
(i re-smiled sternly).
V: (questioning): कैसे react करेंगी ???
ME: मुझे क्या पता??? I'm not a mamma...
V: Obviously डांटती हैं...

Meanwhile, V was interrupted by a call. Our conversation sort of ended. Par sawal ab bhi hai mere paas..

"क्या SMOKE करना आपकी मम्मा कि ख़ुशी से ज्यादा है??"

ye patriotism kis bala ka naam hai...???

oohho... a headache to begin a blog...?? pretty different... but no... the show must go on... so aaj kuch likhna banta hai..

It was 26th January yesterday- our 62nd REPUBLIC DAY. What? Where? How?... India... Republic... public...n me??? OMG!now, if you are thinking that's a patriotic blog, HOLD... it's a purely 'just my feeling' blog.

One of my listeners (alike others) called up yesterday- to wish me a happy republic day..(achcha lagta hai... kam se kam hum wish to karte hain...). However, at the same moment, I felt- had he really called up to wish me... or to regret? Means k, the boy who called up, is a student of class 12. (imagine- ek bikhra sa bachcha... sorry bada.. with bikhre se baal.. a branded bag to suit him... a latest hair color...baju mein ek bike...and something of the same sort..!).
And yes, as he called... the same 12 class ka bada told that he went to the school- FOR A REPUBLIC DAY...!! So the question is.. A TWELFTH CLASS KA BADA FOR A REPUBLIC DAY...?? OMG! How dare he??? didn't his girlfriend stop him??..Didn't his group fine him for doing the same punishable act??? how dare he??

Now guys, if you are thinking that I am over reacting- I am not.. the fact is.. literally, these days, twelthies don't go to school... and that too for a REPUBLIC DAY...its impossible!! IT'S EXPLOITATION OF THEIR SPIRITS. Arey bhai... case kar do..!

Vaise.. this moment, i feel like talking as an oldie.. (jinhone apni jawani bahut dekhi thi..hheh..) Something like... "humare time par hum to jaate the school.. 26 janvari aur 15 agast ko.. chocolate milti thi 10 rupaye waali... aur kuch bachche to ek chocolate lene ke baad bhi phir line mein lag jaate the...hheheh" But dear reader, no chocolates can please the students these days. they say..." chocolate ye to naya boyfriend aise hi khila dega... meri shart lagi thi..." So again..zamana badal gaya hai janaab...!

Any ways... what all did he tell?? The student... say D(let's name him)... told.. "arey yaar... happy republic day... pata hai... aaj mein school gaya.. and 12th class ka main akela bachcha tha... main neeche bhi baitha tha... main akela!!

Me: tum akele???
D: Ha.. my friends.. they told wo bhi aayeinge... but they didn't...seriously yaar...socho... me for a republic day...!I just went for my school..
Me: MMM pata nahi.. par tum aise hi ho..?? like aisa nahi hai yaar...repulic day ke liye jaana... are you feeling it that hard??? mujhe kuch achcha nahi lag raha..
D: Why?
Me: yaar.. you u mean.. you went for your school... but couldn't afford to go for your country???
D: Yaar i know... mere ghar mein sab mujhse bhi zyada patriotic hain...
Me: But then you mean... your school is much important than your know what..while u are in your school, you think your school's the best. But after wards you realize school se aage bhi bahut kuch hai...
D: yarr... i'm not an rj who's talking to people..
Me: Even I know.. but u were born in india... not your school. And yes.. as you'll grow with life... u'll know know... school is not all... and ... you paid for your schooling..
D: But my school made me smarter...
Me: all english medium schools.. especially your school teaches us to be that you call smartness. It shows.. you are the best..
D: I know. But i think, right now i am more important than my country...

I had no time to explain him better. My station Id. had already been played... I had to stop. But I mean it...Does an English medium school really stand much important than my country???

And yes... you know what?? 'D' and I are from the same school..Modern School Kota
And though,D didn't speak... I knew he meant..."ye patriotism kis bala ka naam hai...???"
