Yaaron Ki Baraat

Yes, this is absolutely true in my case.

I feel lucky to have many good friends in my life, friends last from 30 years, friends from 15-20 years…I cherish my friendship but few friends hold some special place, not because they are different but they do things different…

This post is for my yaara “Surbhi” …(Now don’t smile reading this post ok….) well we are friends from last 2 years only but few people come in life with some heart to heart connection and she is one of that kind.

Well let me Introduce you all to this creature of God which we all call as “Surbhi” …

13095735_1111543835535469_2205843295740986749_nShe is funny, sweet, nice, not innocent, nautanki and above all a girl with a golden heart. MBA by profession, mother of naughty naughty Aru , caring wife, great dancer with smiling face and above all as my hubby says …”Challenge Italy noone can cook pasta like surbhi …..” an amazing chef of our group !!!

Now, you all wold be amazed to know …Surbhi was my hubby’s colleague in office and she left the job for Aru her son, as he needed more attention of this multitalented mother. We never met before but from my hubby I heard so many times about her and especially about her dabba and her cooked batti chokha, that she cooks amazing.

On one weekend, we invited Surbhi and Ajay (her husband …need to mention him too 🙂 ) for dinner that was when I met her first …. I was expecting my second babyimg_6701 at that time … although it was our first meeting but looks liked we know each other from years .. from then our friendship started and must have to admit that she is very caring girl I have came across.

Due to some medical emergency I got admitted to hospital in April and my due date was in July.. those were the toughest days of our life. She made sure that I don’t feel down in any case and stood beside me leaving all..supporting me emotionally and making me smile all time…I delivered my extremely premature baby who went in NICU for long 2 months but she was always there to support and bring smileimg_1420 on my face. My mother always says ” You can easily judge people in your toughest time” and inspite of knowing her from just few months she use to leave her little boy to neighbor and use to be with me to support in hospital all the time…I know that is one thing I can’t pay off …or I should say I’m not kind of a person who speak about it but today I got this platform to say “Thanks Surbhi”, thanks for everything 🙂 ….

Now I am really mean if I don’t mention that she is from Ahmedabad. I don’t know but I do take so much liberty to pull her leg and be blunt on her face telling if she is right or wrong but she never gets angry …(If she gets angry ….let’s see for how many hours ….hahahahaha s mean I’m ) …

She says “I am equal to her 10 mother in law …but I’m not …hehe I’m one of my own kind….Some beautiful moments ….

“NO” itself a sentence

Yesterday watched one of the finest, heart touching & meaningful Bollywood flick “Pink“.

img_6449

This movie will give make you think about so many facts we are really doing in today’s society without understanding what really happens or happened. Being a mother of a daughter &!I’m confused that should I teach my daughter to be bold  & fight or just keep her inside not encouraging her being a “NORMAL WORKING GIRL” as our society still think shit about girls working & staying alone.

I rate this movie 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟stars for sure, Thanks to Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury for casting Big B Mr. Amitabh_Bachchan as advocate Deepak Sehgal. All three actresses Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea done 💯 % justice to the character.

One court room dialogue which reminded me one real incident happened with me I decided to write about it & pay my gratitude to my dad for giving me such upbringing that I got courage to speak up about it.

Yes, I believe if a girl or a women says no by action or word … she really means NO!!

This incident is of year 2000 after completing my graduation 🎓 with my dad I was traveling via train from Lucknow to Bangalore for my MCA.

As it was only me & dad travelling to Bangalore, we have with us copassengers in which there were a father who was going to leave her daughter to her grandparents home as her 10th board exams were just completed for holidays. She was a sweet girl and we became friendly soon. My father and my berths were upper and side upper and they had lower & middle berth, there was a man age between 40-45 who took his lower berth in front of that girl.

We both girls kept listening to songs on our walkman and he was talking to papa & her father. At night usually I don’t feel slept so I was just lying on my side upper listening to music 🎶 and realised that something weird on lower berth. I saw that man was trying to molest that girl putting his hands in her blanket who was sleeping on lower berth too. I waited for sometime and realised that she was tensed and shifted herself to other side of berth and then also that shameless creature started putting his legs under her blanket.

Train got stopped on one of the station I pretended to sleep and realised he got up and pretended he is going towards washroon he pressed my feet, as I was watching him from long time , I kicked him and said “what’s the problem?” He got little scared and said “sorry by mistake“.

He went to washroom and little girl who was just getting no idea what to do, got up and said to me “ Didi that uncle is troubling me from last 1 hour… help please” I told her go and sleep and wait for me to call your name.

Train started again and his dirty ideas too but this time I was quite sure to teach him proper lesson as one kick was really not enough for him. As soon as he touched her, I shouted loudly “Switch onnnnn the lightsssss” & that girl immediately got up and switched on the lights, hearing me shouting my dad and other passengers got up and papa asked me ” what happened?” I told entire story and that girl was full on tears told same stuff to her dad.. but that shameless creature said “he did nothing just got up to drink water and these girls are making stories…

My dad who always taught me to stand up against wrong trusted me and we called TT and railway authorities took him away.

Papa said “he is proud of me as I took a stand rather being quite” today he is not with us but want to say thanks papa for giving my life meaningful teachings and strength to fight for odds without fear.

My only message to every girl to stand up for yourself and for others girls too & message to all boys “respect every girl as you can save your sister in that way”

Such a great event this evening & luckily I got a chance to ask quick questions to Amit Malhotra CEO & Co founder of Ten dimensions 

image

CC: How was Ten Dimensions born? What is the company all about? What is it’s vision?

Amit : Ten Dimensions is a media & entertainment hub, created out of the passion of its founders to make a mark in the global events & entertainment industry. It’s pupose is to create & deliver world class services across its core domains of Events, Digital, Films & Talent.

CC: Every Indian wants to do something for his country. Ten Dimensions organizing an event on 12th of August 3 days before Independence Day “Jaya hey” how this idea of organizing an event for War Widows was born?

Amit: “None of us can exist in isolation. Our lives and existence is supported by others, in seen and unseen ways, be it our parents, teachers or society at large. To be aware of these connections, to feel appreciation for them and to strive to give something back to society in a spirit of gratitude is the proper way for human beings to live.” – By Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, Peace Builder, Poet & Author

The loss of a soldier fighting the enemy is heart breaking for any nation, but the biggest brunt of it is borne by his family… more so the Widow he leaves behind.

It is with this thought that we decided to contribute to the welfare of those families whose Men have sacrificed their lives so that we remain safe & protected.

JayaHey is an effort to repay that debt to the Martyrs’ families.

CC: Fund which would be raised by this event how that would be going to help real hero’s family?

Amit:  Vasantharatna Foundation for Art, founded by Mrs. Subhashini Vasanth, is doing plethora of good work for the welfare and development of the families of Defense Martyrs of our country. Using arts as a medium for covering projects in education and empowerment, the foundation aims to create a support system for the spouses and families of our Armed Forces personnel. The prime objective of the foundation are as follows:

✓ To empower women from martyrs’ families through education and the arts, and help them to discover their potential to achieve their goals.
✓ To educate and train children of such families.
✓ To develop relationships between army families on the one hand and members of the larger society who are willing to reach out, on the other.
✓ To increase public awareness of the sacrifices of soldiers and their families.
✓ To provide family counseling and legal support.
CC:  Javed Ali is one of the most versatile singer of Bollywood, what was his reaction when you approached him with this idea of an event? Was it easy to get him on board?

Amit: Javed was absolutely delighted to join hands for the cause. In fact, I clearly remember he had a baby like excitement on his face when in one of our later meetings we were discussing the kind of songs should be performed at the event. Approaching him was also easy and very friendly indeed. I guess when your own heart & intentions are clear, it becomes relatively easy to approach and have a dialogue with people around.

CC: GIMA nominee Devyani Majumdar is going to release her first patriotic song “Disha Disha hawa Bahe” on this prestigious event, tell us something about that?

Amit:  Devyani is a very talented artist. Having already worked with renowned and respectable artistes like Shri. Anup Jalota, Ustad Rashid Khan and on a romantic single with Javed Ali himself, she is now releasing Disha Disha Bahe Hawa at the Jaya Hey event. It is amazing and fits perfectly with the theme of the event.

CC:  Can we expect such good caused event from Ten dimensions to be organized in future?

Amit: Most certainly – yes.

CC:  Any message you want to give?

Amit: Happiness of human beings is the basis for all kinds of advancement. If the society, complex and homes that we live in are not happy, we, as individuals can never be happy either. So while working hard to achieve our own personal dreams and desires, we should consciously make efforts to contribute to the happiness & welfare of people around us.

Devyani Majumder:

From her “Shyam piya” album with bhajan & gazal maestro Anup Jalota to her GIMA nominated “Jazbaa” with  Ustaad Rashid Khan this versatile singer has made a mark in the hearts of hordes of fans across the globe.

I got this opportunity to have a quick chit chat with this versatile singer launching her first patriotic song “Disha disha bahe hawa  “

CC: First of all congratulations as you are launching your first patriotic song disha disha bahe hawa? How does it feel?

Devyani: Thank you so much. I feel ecstatic to be finally releasing this song which is very close to my heart. A lot of effort has been put into this particular song by all the people involved in its making. I’m very grateful and I genuinely hope everyone likes it.
CC: Your first album which was recorded with Bhajan & Gazal Maestro Sri Anup Jalota, Shyam Piya, how does that happen?

Devyani: Anupji’s lyricist had attended one of my shows in Mumbai and heard me for the first time. He loved my work and introduced me to Anupji thereafter. Incidentally I was planning to do a bhajan album at that time, and my interaction with Anupji put the entire plan in motion.

CC: After sharing your melodious voice with Sri Anup Jalota your Gazal album with Ustaad Rashid Khan Jazbaa got nomination in GIMA, share your experience attached to it?

Devyani: I have been very fortunate to have worked with stalwarts of the industry like Anupji and Ustaad Rashid Khan Saab. Jazbaa is one of the finest projects I’ve been part of. I consider myself truly lucky to have been able to work with Ustaad Ji.Getting a GIMA nomination for my first ghazal album has been nothing short of a dream. To share a nomination for the best ghazal album at GIMA with industry stalwarts is a dream come true.

CC: Why you have chosen Jaya hey event to launch your song disha disha bahe hawa?

Devyani:  As you know, Disha Disha Bahe Hawa is a patriotic song that encompasses the beauty of our motherland. When I got to know that a program as meaningful as Jaya Hai was being organised for the war widows of our country on the occasion of our 70th Independence Day, I decided to dedicate my song to them. It is the sacrifice of our armed forces and the families they have left behind that makes our motherland actually beautiful.

CC: How did you get associated with Ten Dimensions how was your experience?

Devyani: I have known the partners of Ten Dimensions since a long time now. I share a very close personal rapport with all of them.
I have always had an amazing experience while working with them. I feel this can be attributed to the close bond we all share.

CC: Jaya hey is an event raised for good cause. Do you want to share any message for your fans here??

Devyani: I would simply request all my fans to never forget the sacrifices of our troops and their families. They have given so much for all of us. It is our duty to give them all the support they deserve

So this is the event full of fun, emotion & above all good cause!!! I feel proud to be a part of it…and wish this event a great success!!!
