    83'

    A first ever major sport win for India on a global scale after independence .. A year which has a ring of ‘1947’ to it ! 83′ isn’t the pop-corn movie one would expect but a celebration of 14 ‘Jawans’ led by a high on spirit gem of a captain- Kapil Dev ! While there is no significant build up to the event of the Cricket World Cup as other sport sagas usually do, the film throws chunks of every cricketing personality through not so elaborate arcs. We enter the tournament an underdog and we immediately know our team is breathing the casual air of a team with not much hope from themselves…

    The film then travels across in concentric circles; around how Kapil Dev time and again boosted the teams morale and led from the front with some brilliant performances himself. They say it’s the team that wins matches and not an individual but never ever in any one match you see the champions attitude of our paltan ! I think the English newspapers of 1983 that caught wind of India’s rise in the world cup tournament, calling it a series of flukes must have been referring to these disconnected loops of team bonding as portrayed in the film.

    And yes, there is that flaky music score (with words which have lost shine on most of us) when the actual match is in action ! I mean WHY ? Were the film-makers worried that Team India’s meteoric rise and stupendous fall at times in the tournament won’t channel the emotion into us ? I felt the actors did a really good job ( as most of them have done) but the music killed my enthusiasm at times.

    And then comes a pivotal moment – the final ball to victory. That one moment which stamped us as World Victors – the new cricketing champions of the world ! After a series of actual footage scenes; the film terribly failed to deliver this knockout punch of a moment- where every fiber of your body is already stretched to the limit in anticipation of victory ! And in the most anti-climactic ways in which any victorious moment could have been shot, the moment just passes by with a few ‘howzatt’ shouts and that’s it. India wins the World-Cup and my nerves for once just refuse to relax ! My goodness – where is my victory-gasm ?

    Still, i walked out happy having lived (although a half-life) a moment of euphoria via the big screen. Kudos on this ambitious project and a good film. No wonder the casting was near perfect with great performances and I didn’t see Ranveer Singh anywhere – he was Kapil Dev all the way.

    Do see it as it is not a movie to miss, although one has to live through some flaws. Worth a watch…

    The Lonely Aquarium
    Episode-14
    Nicotine

    I slept on the motorcycle seat. When I woke up, I thought everything was a dream until I opened the diary to read the page 40 again. The woman I have grown to love is not exactly someone that I have imagined all this time. She has proved herself to be one cunning woman in a perfect disguise which I could have never doubted. But the unanswered question here is, is she a bad person?

    I walked into the house, checked on my mother's pulse and blood pressure. Washed my face, looked into the mirror. My eyes were red and baggy. I should be hallucinating or why else would I see TJ and Alice behind me on either side in the mirror reflection. I shrugged those visuals away. It is been a long time wonder of mine, how the mirror switches sides to make you look beautiful, like those selfies. To that list I would add people standing opposite to me as well. They look beautiful when they are not in fact, they are just a mirror image synonym.

    "Mom, here!"
    "Thank you dear.. Why are you looking at me like that?"

    "Nothing ma... you have that cereal."
    "No honey, there is something."

    "Did you know about Alice?"
    "Ahem... Yes honey!"

    "Why didn't you tell me?"
    "What benefit that brings?"

    "I would have known about TJ right?"
    "But I did not know about TJ honey.."

    "Mom, you never asked me about that day ever."
    "Which day you are talking about honey?"

    "You know. The day I walked home."
    "Because you wouldn't say my dear!"

    "Because you loved that man mom!"
    "Yeah.... THAT MAN; I loved."

    "I am sorry ma.. It is hard to call him anything else."
    "May I know why, am I deserving to know that at least?"

    "Mom, you are the most deserving to know that, but you don't deserve to go through what all I have to say mom. But if you want to know what happened that day, ask me."

    I kissed her forehead and walked away with his diary and a packet of cigarette. Sat on my balcony, lit my cigarette and looked for the page 41;

    #41
    Yes, I spoke with her. First time ever! I know that I went to her because my aunt wants to know something. But when I saw her and walked to her, I do not think my mind had any intent except standing near her. The vibes around her my god I want to tear apart a tree on a whole. Dude my heart beat became audible when she looked at me. How the hell is no one dying in just the sheer beauty of her eyes?"
    #41

    I remember that first day ever when he acted as if he stumbled upon me. That moment I knew, his eyes told everything. He stuttered, stammered, staggered and if any words give the same meaning, then he did those as well. Even I heard his heart beat, may be that eyes made me feel something I wasn't expecting I guess. I scrubbed through pages which had nothing to do with me or us.

    #53
    Finally I got her contact number. I asked for her snapchat but she said she doesn't us any social media. Then I asked her number and she just gave. But she did not look like someone who would give away her number just like that. Made me feel special.
    #53

    Yes I don't. I don't give my number to anybody, but I gave him. May be I was falling in love with a person and even I did not know that.

    #56
    Dude I touched her oh my god!!! I remembered an Indian film where the protagonist's finger toucher the female lead and he gets shock and past life memories. I have laughed at those things and today I felt that in real life. I gave her a flash drive and her finger tips just touched me... Oh my god!! I am not gonna sleep...
    #56

    I remember the day when that incident happened but I have no idea about whatever he is screaming about. Men are weird. Or are they?

    #59
    Aunt called me to ask what is happening. I am just in love until she reminds me I am on a mission. Seriously I do not care. I just want a happy life with Amora. And how am I supposed to tell her everything. She is a tormented poor soul and I highly doubt she will be able to handle this. After all, I am the only person who talks with her in the entire college. I am scared.

    I asked her out today. I wanted to tell her that I got official MMA license to fight in professional grounds. Later I came to knew that her mother attempted to kill herself. I went to her home with some food. Today's hug was different, there was more than friendship from her. I came back home early morning and I totally forgot to tell her about my license. It shall wait for the right day.

    It was her birthday today. Aunt told me to make it special so that I have an advantage. But she is my woman and I know how to make it special with zero advantages. Those matte pink lips my dude... In the aquarium I almost asked her to kiss me. But later that night she asked me to ask that one more time. I was shook! I kissed her mate.... I kissed Amy.... I kissed Amy. Then she said she wants to live with me for the rest of her life. At that moment, I gave up on my MMA fighting career dreams. I will live with her... as long a I can... as healthy as I possibly can.... and I will give her as much as I can....

    That was the end of his diary. I can't believe that he tore apart something huge as an MMA career for me; a cursed human specimen. He deserved a lot better than me. I put him in a hospital as a return for all his favours. I should be ashamed for not thinking twice before reacting.

    *INCOMING CALL*
    Alice
    Phone

    "Yes"
    "Amy, I need to know!"

    "You could have asked, instead of using TJ as a pawn!"
    "Done is done, I need to know!"

    "What if I choose not to?"
    "We moved TJ, you might be wondering where, right?"

    "What do you mean?"
    "I will make sure, you never see him again, ever!"

    "Alice please, he is all I got as my future!"
    "You tried to kill him dear!"

    "What do you want?"
    "Answers, or forget TJ"

    *CALL ENDED*

    आख़िर क्यों?......2

    आख़िर क्यों न्यूजीलैंड में निहत्थे कुछ लोगों पर गोली चलाया जाता है,
    और फ़िर क्यों उसका बदला श्रीलंका के कुछ बेगुनाह लोगों को आतंक का शिकार होना पड़ता है,
    आख़िर क्यों सब बस शोक व्यक्त करके चुप हो जाते हैं,
    और आख़िर वो कौन होते हैं किसी की हक में लड़ने की?
    जब हम भूखे हो कर मृत्यु की आस में बैठे होते हैं,
    फिर वो क्यों नहीं आते हमारी मदद करने ?
    और वो कौन होते हैं हमारे हिस्से की लड़ाई लड़ने ?
    यहां हार या मृत्यू ना किसी धर्म का हुआ ना किसी मजहब का हुआ,
    ना वहां कोई हिन्दू मरा, ना कोई मुसलमान मरा और ना ही कोई ईसाई मरा,
    वहां पर मृत्यू इंसानियत की हुई है,
    ना कोई आपकी आंसुओं को पोछने आएगा ,
    और ना ही कोई आपकी जीवन भर सुख सुविधाओं का ख्याल रखेगा,
    बस धर्म के नाम पर ये लोग बस आपका इस्तेमाल करेंगे और करते आ रहे हैं
    अगर हमने इन्हें हक नहीं दिया हमारे हिस्से की लड़ाई लड़ने की,
    तो ये कौन हैं हमारे लिए लड़ने वाले ?
    जिस प्रकार वातावरण की शंतुलन के लिए विष और अमृत दोनों ज़रूरी है,
    उसी प्रकार समाज में सामंजस्य बनाए रखने के लिए सभी धर्मों का होना आवश्यक है,

    नोट:- भगवान ने आपको भी मस्तिष्क और बुद्धि प्रदान की है,
    कृपया अपने बुद्धि का इस्तेमाल करें और इन बिना अधिकार के सिपाहियों से बचें

    I sit at the window,
    open to the summer breeze,
    gazing out, up at the sky,
    waxing crescent hung amongst the clouds.

    In a few hours,
    the street downstairs,
    no more quiet and peaceful,
    but full of people and sound.

    I sit here by the window,
    the clock ticking away,
    the sky turning colours,
    from dark to orange to blue.

    I sit here by the window,
    admiring the peace and quiet,
    the sleeping street,
    waiting till my eyes fall asleep.

    Tasteless

    My nights are tasteless and drab, without you,
    O sweetheart . . .
    These sombre and dry nights are so tough to brave.

    Don't go for your duty; which like a paramour, keeps calling you . . .
    What will I say when the rain comes and asks for you ?
    Please don't go now . . .

    See, these monotonous and insipid nights are impossible to go through.

    Seemingly a counterfeit reality, without you, this moon in the sky . . .
    As an alternative to silver, it's exhaling a white coloured dust at me.

    This gold too feels like brass, without you, O darling . . .
    But when you are with me even a Gum tree is like a sacred fig tree.
