Superhero Steve Tikolo



Age - 42 Years, 6 Months (December 2013), Efforts by Legendary Steve Tikolo, who came out of retirement were not enough for Kenya as they failed to qualify for 2014 ICC World Twenty20 & finished 11th out of 16 teams. (Tikolo scored 236 Runs Averaging around 34 & took 12 wickets in 8 matches). After the dismal performance Tikolo is also the interim coach of Kenyan Cricket Team. Stats - Tikolo has played 134 ODIs in which he scored 3421 runs and took 94 wickets (345 Runs & 13 Wickets in 15 T20 Internationals), & thousands of runs in List A & First Class Matches around the world. Leading, inspiring the Kenya squad in 90s, 2000s & now once again in qualifiers. 


*)- Inpired generations, saved Kenya's ODI status (falling into Division Two, Three team status) which seemed inevitable quite a few times.

*) - World Cup Appearances - 5

*) - Winning Multiple ICC Associate-Allied Nation Championships & Trophies 1996-Present.

*) - Coach - Kenya (Current), Uganda.

Steve Tikolo & Ryan ten Doeschate are the 2 players I want to see playing in test matches, especially Steve but we all no thats impossible. Moving on...

  "The glory days of 2003 and qualifying for the 2003 World Cup semi-final are the stuff of legend to most of the current crop, and a distant memory for Tikolo. "It makes my heart bleed," he said. "We worked so hard - at one point people were saying we could be the next Test team. And look at where we are now." Kenya had also failed to secure a spot for the 2015 World Cup when they were beaten by Afghanistan in the World Cricket League, but they do have another chance at qualification during next month's qualifiers in New Zealand, where the final two spots will be determined among the list of contenders.


 All the Very Best Team Kenya & "The Gun" Steve Tikolo. #respect

Sehar (Movie Review)



Kal Sehar movie dekhi jo 1990s mey Uttar Pradesh k kukhyat Gangster Shri Prakash Shukla jiske naam kai murders, kidnappings thi....(izzat nahi de raha hun uska naam hi Shri Prakash tha) aur tab form huyi Special Task Force (STF) par based thi. Mai rarely ek movie ek se zyada baar dekh pata hun par Sehar jab bhi TV par aayi hai (3-4 times) maine dekhi. Achchhi movie to hai hi par shayad isliye bhi kyoki isme Lucknow shehar ki locations aur unke reference kai baar aate hai just like "Main, Meri Patni aur Woh" & "Tanu Weds Manu". 

Tab cell phone naye the aur Police k liye apradhiyon ka surveillance ek nayi baat. Technology mey Police gangsters k naye tareeko se pichhad rahi thi tab STF ka gathan hua jinka saath diya ek expert professor ne. Script-Dialogues par itni mehnat bahut kum dekhne ko milti hai technical jargon ko tareeke se samjhaya gaya hai. Arshad Warsi (SSP Ajay Kumar) aur Mahima Chaudhary ka love angle hai, traumatized past angle hai Arshad k pita se juda....Politics, thrill, shootouts ka achchha mix hai. Itni bhaag daud k baad climax to bas kayamat scene hai....usi scene mey,

STF team k Saiyyad ko goli lag jaati hai aur SP Ajay apne saathi k saath gangster k peeche jaate hai Prof. Tiwari (Pankaj Kapur) jinhe khoon kharabe aur bandooko se bada darr lagta hai ko Saiyyad k paas chhod kar. Saiyyad mar jata hai to Prof. Tiwari Ajay Kumar k peeche jaate hai.

Arshad Warsi - "Tiwari ji, aap yahan kya kar rahe hai aapko to Saiyyad k paas hona chahiye."

Uske baad ka moment, expressions hai wo batayen nahi jaa sakte.

Acting mey Pankaj Kapur, Arshad Warsi, Suhasini Mulay, Mahima Chaudhary, Sushant Singh ne zabardast kaam kiya hai. Director Kabeer Kaushik ka aese unche level ka debut Bollywood mey rarity hai.

Satyagraha Movie Review

Satyagraha Movie Review



Movie dekh to li thi 10-12 din pehle Review late de raha hun...

Prakash Jha ki as a Director log bahut taareef karte hai ya izzat karte hai. Ab pata nahi aap log maanenge ya nahi is izzat ka ek bada hissa is wajah se kyoki wo serious-social issues chunte hai...arre sachchi...personal experience hai mujhe to, kai baar sambodhano mey Mohit Sir se Mohit ji....Mohit Bhai k baad Mohit tak pahuncha hun jaise jaise logo ne serious se shuru kar baaki genres ki cheezen padhi meri. Jokes apart unke career par gaur karen to usme satta, rajneeti k sangarsh aur parde k peeche k khel, antardwand par zor rehta hai.

Ab bhi unhone ek corrupt system k khilaaf khade hue ek ahinsavaadi buzurg Dwarika Anand ki kahani dikhayi hai. Yahan bhi unhone apna trademark monotonous style use kiya hai twists-angles mey. Ab ye condition to impossible hai to isme buzurg aur us elake se jude kirdaar aakar naye samikaran banate hai. Mudde ki baat ye hai ki kahani par mehnat nahi ki gayi aesa laga ki Satyagrah, Lokpaal par koi aur movie na bana de us se pehle announce karke jaldi nipta do ye subject. Kahani k angles jinke aane par lagta hai ki ab to maza aayega wo yun hi nikal jaate hai jaise Dwarika Anand k engineer bete ki maut ek accident na hokar conspiracy hona jab khula to bahut dull tareeke se....climax bhi feeka laga.

Message dena hai to dhang se dijiye aese adhpake vyanjan se jiski kahani ya scenes yaad na rahe uska message kaise goonjega? Music mey Salim-Sulaiman k alawa Indian Ocean band dekh kar achchha laga...unka sangeet achchha tha par lyrics behtar ho sakti thi.

Acting mey Amitabh Bachchan ji aur Ajay Devgn ne kasar nahi chhodi hai aur roles k saath nyay kiya hai. Kareena ne bhi apna homework achchhe se kiya hai journalist k role par. Arjun bhi Prakash Jha k favorite ban gaye hai aur Lucknow k kuch chhatr neta yaad aa gaye unhe dekh kar. Amrita Rao typecast ho gayi lagte hai ek jaise kirdaaron ki range mey...journalist agar wo banti to challenge hota (low budget mey experiments karna aur commercial movie mey movie makers ko convince karna alag baaten hoti hai).

P.S. Iske kuch adhure scenes dekh kar Shahid Kapur ki Paathshaala movie ki yaad aa gayi. Matlab movies mey achchha climax hota hai, bura climax hota hai...Paathshaala mey to climax tha hi nahi...he he.  Waise Prakash Jha achchhe director hai par yahan kuch jaldbaazi dikhi unki aur production team ki...Satyagraha se kaafi better Rajneeti thi kyoki usme kum muddo par focus tha, to sabko justified weightage mila aur yahan mudde bahut zyada le liye gaye kahani mey....

Unique Product vs. Copied Product

As per few of my friends "Everything created these days is copied...everyone copies." Such statements are insult to those people who work their hearts out in creative fields. Now please consider few examples.

*) - If everyone copies then by that logic Music Directors like Pritam or Anu Malik or Bappi Lahiri should be as great as AR Rahman.....NO!! because he and his team work hard to find unique permutations and combinations instead of lifting music from around the world.

*) - *Hypothetical* You want to make a Political Thriller movie. Now, mainstream Bollywood chooses copied themes, story plots. Political movies similar to USA or big European nations scene are done to death all over the word ...so a lot of stats on the Box Office Response, Critics, Budget etc are already there...for me adapting all that in your country's backdrop is no big deal. Now, many Hollywood as well as independent movie makers take risk and cover Historical Fiction stories on roads less (or not at all) traveled...like Political scenes of not so mainstream countries like Fiji, Moldova..(this is new, this is trying unique permutations-combinations)...if these risks are commercially successful then shameless Bollywood camps, big production houses copy the theme or even scene-by-scene copy the movie (this is copy, no excuse). Artist-Author Mr. Sumit Kumar while reviewing a story in Freelance Talents Championship wrote - "World is a complex place, there are so many stories which have never been told. Holocaust has been done to death - something similar could be the mass killings in Mizoram in 60's. You could write about that."

*) - I agree that volume of creative work, art created over thousands of years is humongous but still there are countless unused permutations-combinations...I guess the commercial barriers restrict people to try something new, unique and they chose 'tried and tested' safe paths over an over again...maybe thats why often a 2 minute trailer can remind 4-5 movies or books to even a casual fan....So, please respect the brainstorming, several experiments few people do to bring those unseen probabilities to life.

P.S. Jab itna paisa aur mehnat casting, shooting mey kharch kar rahe ho to thoda sa story mey bhi kar lo...

Modern Classics in Video Gaming


This is not an exhaustive list, and I will only cover games that I truly love. Rest assured there are many great games out there, but I am not here to write a essay. I am here to let you know what I love, and if you're a gamer, you can look into these games for entertainment. Enjoy. - Ajay Dhillon

DISHONORED (2012)




In this game, you take the role of a royal body guard who's job is to protect the empress. However, the empress is assassinated and you are accused for her murder. You are thrown into the prison, but soon rescued. Now it's time for revenge. To start off, you have lot of freedom to choose your own path in order to complete your objectives. For example, in one mission, you can choose to enter a mansion through the sewers or climb the wall to enter through the garden--these are just few possibilities. You can replay these levels again and again and still find something new. Whether you choose to play as good/evil (killing everyone or killing no one)--your actions will influence the outcome. It's pretty clear when choosing upgrades, you want to be able to sneak more efficiently or be built up for combat. However, I feel the best option is stealth. In stealth mode, you can avoid killing enemies by putting them in sleeper hold, and there's always an option to neutralize your main assassination target as opposed to killing them.




The game is absolutely gorgeous. The developers really managed to create an amazing dystopia and I became truly immersed in it--a 1900s European style city ravaged by rat plague, which has killed over half of the population. I also really found myself getting into the story as the game advanced. I'm a sucker for stealth games, and unique settings, so this game was right up my alley. Upon beating the game, I immediately wanted to start again, and till date, I have beaten this game not once, not twice, but four times. I highly recommend it.

BIOSHOCK (2007)
BIOSHOCK 2 (2009) 





Having a bit of hype surrounding it before it's release, BioShock does not disappoint. In fact, as far as first person shooters go, games rarely get any better than this. BioShock takes the FPS genre to new levels thanks to it's brilliantly realized atmosphere and setting, and a story that is so engaging and emotional that you'll think you were playing an RPG. The opening shows your character flying on the plane, which crashes soon afterwards. Being a lone survivor, you see a lighthouse in the middle of the ocean and swim towards it. This lighthouse is a secret entrance to an underwater city of Rapture. As you arrive, you see that rapture is in ruins and dead bodies are everywhere. There are psychos running around with guns. Now it's up to you to solve the mystery of this exotic place.



Using a barrage of traditional weapons, and some new found abilities as well. What makes BioShock so great besides the atmosphere and story line are the memorable characters and character customization options which really allow the gamer to get into the game and tinker around to your advantage. The overall presentation, from the sound design to the wonderful voice acting to the grimy atmosphere, make BioShock one of the best games released yet, and definitely one of the best FPS' to come out in quite some time. If there's any downsides to BioShock, it's that the enemy variety is slim and that it is a little too forgiving to the gamer. Moreover, unlike the other games mentioned in this list, Bioshock is pretty linear in terms of progression. Despite the minor flaws, BioShock is a masterpiece of modern gaming, and every gamer should consider this an essential pick up. Bioshock 2 is a direct sequel to Bioshock, and expands on Bioshock lore. It also improves on the game's play mechanics of the first game. You play as a different character this time around and the story is yet again very memorable. It's a worthy pick up if you loved the first.

BIOSHOCK INFINITE (2013)




The 3rd game in the series has nothing to do with the previous games, and contrary to the claustrophobic and dark setting of Rapture, Bioshock Infinite takes you above the clouds, where everything bathes in bright sunlight. You play as Booker Dewitt, an ex-Pinkerton sent to a city in the clouds to rescue a girl. It is set in the early 1900's. Although the plot seems pretty basic at first, it evolves into something much deeper. Without giving much away, the story focuses on racial tensions (the norm in early 1900s America), and touches on the subject of forgiveness and redemption. In terms of game play, Bioshock infinite is touch weaker than BS 2 but better than BS1; however, you have wide variety of guns to choose from this time around (around 13). You have plasmids like magic potions from Bioshock, but they are called Vigors here. The story is well written and well told, the voice-acting is some of the best I've ever heard in a video game, and game offers plenty of action.




You are treated to an amazing game world--one of the best settings I've seen in a video game along with games like Dishonored and the original BioShock. It was amazing how much detail and thought went into even the smallest details, details you would miss unless you were looking carefully. The game ended, and I found myself searching the internet to see if others shared my interpretation of it. The overall story is quite thought provoking - something I expect from a book or good movie, not a game. As with any game, there are some flaws. In a true Bioshock manner, the game is fairly linear in design, so there's not a lot of additional ground to cover, as each location is build to progress the main story. Also, there is only one ending! Aside from these nit pickings this is a modern day masterpiece - an overused phrase but one that applies here.

FAR CRY 2 (2008)




Caught between two rival factions in war-torn Africa, you are sent to take out "The Jackal", a mysterious character who has rekindled the conflict between the warlords, jeopardizing thousands of lives. In order to fulfill your mission you will have to play the factions against each other, identify and exploit their weaknesses, and neutralize their superior numbers and firepower with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force.




From the amazing opening scene, it's clear that Far Cry 2 offers an amazing setting that will immerse you all the way through. Far Cry 2 is made for patient gamers who love exploring an interesting environment. It offers insane amount of freedom as well, as you can explore this fictional African country and complete any objective in any order. There are no linear preset missions to be found here and the game can last you from anywhere between 20-50 hours depending on how much you want to do. The action is very intense, with smart AI opponents flanking you, sneaking up on you from behind, and surprising you. The free-roaming aspect allows you to pick and choose from a large variety of activities to suit whatever whim you have at the moment (or, you can explore the huge map). The exotic locations are a refreshing change and nothing like this has been seen in games since. And the map editor for online multiplayer is incredible and the most detailed I have ever seen in a game. You could spend hours just having fun building your own map. This game is an absolute must for any gamer with even a remote interest in shooters.

FAR CRY 3 (2013)




You, Jason Brody, are on a vacation with your friends on a desolate island. However, you soon realize that the island is ruled by pirates (or smugglers) as you and your friends are captured and put up for slavery. You manage to escape; however, your brother was not so lucky. Now you must join the local tribe and get your hands bloody in order to survive this overly hostile environment and get your friends back. Far Cry 3 is the surprise hit of 2012 for me, right behind Dishonored. Ubisoft really hit gold with this open world adventure game. Players are introduced to a hellish and beautiful island right from the beginning where savages rule and guns speak. The graphics are fantastic for such a big game (nothing beats blowing a vehicle and watching the fire spread, it's pretty incredible) and the player has so much to do, from hunting and crafting items, to playing poker and throwing knives, to reclaiming enemy outposts and hunting for relics. The list goes on and on. Like Far cry 2, the game is totally unscripted as you can do whatever the game offers.



Unfortunately, unlike Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3 lacks immersion, as the game world (or the island) is not as unique as the somber African country featured in its predecessor. However, FC 3 is far more accessible to casual gamers, and fixes some of the standout flaws of FC2. For starters, there are more quick travel points so no more driving long distances, and stealth seems more natural and easier to perform. Accumulating XP points by finding relics, climbing radio towers, completing missions, and killing enemies will allow the player to upgrade and learn knew skills, and unlike some games, the player can unlock every skill. Moreover, you can find letters of the lost throughout the island, that tell you bit of island's history and about the war that took place decades ago. My only serious problem with the game are the mystical elements introduced later in the game, which seem awfully out of place for a game so grounded in reality. Quite frankly, Far Cry 3 would have benefited greatly if the developers had just stuck to the core psychological drama established at the outset by a crazy villain named Vaas. Speaking of Vaas, Michael Mando delivered one the best performances I've ever seen in a game. The storyline veers off course about 3/4 of the way through and the endings are underwhelming but despite the flaws, Far Cry 3 is a must buy. It is one of the best open world games on the market.

भारत से बड़ी BCCI (Asian Games 2010, Guangzhou)


BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) कई बार देश के लिए नहीं पैसे के लिए बनी संस्था लगती है। फिक्सिंग का मुद्दा तो 1999 के बाद से हमेशा से रहा है पर आप लोगो के साथ एक किस्सा और बाँटना चाहता हूँ। 2010 मे एशियाई खेलो मे क्रिकेट भी शामिल था अपने टी-ट्वंटी फॉर्मेट में जहाँ सिर्फ एशिया की परिधि होने के कारण अधिकतर देशो की टीम अंतरराष्ट्रीय लेवल के हिसाब से कमज़ोर थी। उनमे कुछ टीमों के नाम बताता हूँ मलेशिया, जापान, अफगानिस्तान, बांग्लादेश, होंग कोंग, मालदीव्स, चीन।

गोल्ड मैडल जीता बांग्लादेश ने सिल्वर मैडल अफगानिस्तान के हिस्से आया। भारतीय क्रिकेट कंट्रोल बोर्ड ने बहाना दिया की उसकी पहले से ही विदेशो मे सीरीज तय है, बिजी शीड्युल की वजह से खिलाड़ी थक गये है तो वो टीम नहीं भेज सकती। देश के लिए मैडल लाने की कोई इच्छा नहीं? चलो मुख्या टीम नहीं भेज सकते तो टीम से बाहर भी दर्जनों प्रतिभावान खिलाड़ी बैठे थे उनकी टीम बना देते। पाकिस्तान और श्रीलंका की टीमें भी विदेशों के टूर पर थी पर उन्होंने दोयम दर्जो की टीम भेजी जिस वजह से पाकिस्तान को कांस्य पदक भी मिला। भारत ने वो भी नहीं किया ....क्यों? पैसा ...देश के आगे पैसा! महिलाओं मे भी टीम नहीं भेजी गयी नतीजा यह हुआ की इस श्रेणी मे भी पाकिस्तान, बांग्लादेश और जापान जैसी टीम पदक ले गयीं।

दुर्भाग्य की बात है की इस राष्ट्रद्रोह जैसी बात को ना मीडिया ने तवज्जो दी, ना खेल मंत्रालय और ना देश के नेताओ ने। आखिर ये भारत देश की क्रिकेट टीम थी या भारतीय क्रिकेट कंट्रोल बोर्ड की जिसके पैसों के आगे कोई तर्क नहीं चलता?

हजारो नेशनल, इंटरनेशनल रिटायर्ड क्रिकेट खिलाडियों को पेंशन, नए खिलाडियों के लिए कैम्प्स, दुसरे खेलों को प्रोत्साहन जैसी चीज़ें भारतीय कण्ट्रोल बोर्ड करता है पर दुनिया की सबसे अमीर खेल संस्थाओं मे से एक होने के नाते वो भी भारत जैसे विकासशील देश मे (बाकी अमीर संस्थायें यूरोपी एवम अमेरीकी विकसित देशों में है), उस से और भी उम्मीदें है साथ ही उसकी कमियाँ जैसे भ्रष्ट्राचार, अपने अधिकारों और पैसो का अनुचित प्रयोग उसे बंद करना चाहिये।

लोगो के रवैये पर भी दुख है मसलन IPL एक घरेलु लीग है उसके छोटे मैच पर भी इतना हल्ला, उत्सव जैसा माहौल जबकि अंतरराष्ट्रीय एशियन गेम्स, राष्ट्रमंडल खेलों की भनक तक नहीं। कुछ खुद को "खेलो का दीवाना" कहने वालो के सामान्य ज्ञान पर हँसी आती है फिर निराशा भी होती है।

एक नज़र, फेनिल कॉमिक्स का अब तक का सफ़र!

2011 में अस्तित्व मे आयी फेनिल कॉमिक्स, भारतीय कॉमिक्स के एक बहुत बड़े प्रशंषक और सूरत, गुजरात के व्यवसायी श्री फेनिल शेरडीवाला के निरंतर प्रयासों की देन है। फेनिल कॉमिक्स 2012 कॉमिक कॉन में भाग लेकर पाठको को अपनी प्रतिबद्धता भी दिखायी। हालाँकि, अभी तक फेनिल कॉमिक्स की 4 कॉमिक्स बाज़ार मे उपलब्ध है पर जल्द ही इनका अगला सेट प्रकाशित हो रहा है साथ ही फेनिल कॉमिक्स द्वारा कुछ ऑनलाइन कॉमिक्स समयसमय पर आ रही है।
जासूस बलराम "दस का दम" से फेनिल कॉमिक्स नए लेखकों एवं कलाकारों को मौके देने का बीड़ा उठाया है जिसकी पहली कॉमिक 'नादान' (जासूस बलराम के सर्वश्रेष्ठ कारनामे - 1) अप्रैल 2013 मे प्रकाशित की गयी।  ऑनलाइन कॉमिक्स मे फ्रीलांस टेलेंटस ग्रुप के साथ मिलकर फेनिल कॉमिक्स मे अब तक 3 काव्य कॉमिक्स भी आयी है जिनमे कहानी की जगह कविताओं के साथ कला का समागम कर कॉमिक्स बनायीं गयी है। वैसे फेनिल जी ने लगभग 3 दर्जन किरदारों और सीरिज़ सोच रखी है पर निकट भविष्य में आगामी कॉमिक्स मुख्यतः फौलाद, ओम, बजरंगी, क्राइमफाइटर और स्टंटगर्ल की होंगी।
कॉमिक्स के अलावा इनका अगला पड़ाव एक ऐसी कंपनी का निर्माण है जो अलग-अलग मनोरंजन के साधनों पर आना है जिसके तहत जासूस बलराम के टी.वी. सीरीयल और फौलाद के एनीमेशन पर कार्य जारी है। वैसे अभी मुख्यधारा के स्तर के हिसाब से फेनिल कॉमिक्स को चित्रांकन और कहानियों में काफी मेहनत करनी है, यह भी सलाह दूंगा कि एक समय मे सीमित प्रबंधन कि वजह से कम काम उठाना चाहिये। पर अभी तक प्रयास संतोषजनक रहे है और आगे बेहतर परिणाम आने की उम्मीद है।



मेरी शुभकामनायें फेनिल कॉमिक्स के साथ है।

वो ऐतिहासिक घटना (Must Read)

Mr. Mayank Sharma

**ये है मयंक शर्मा जी। कोई फोटो नहीं मिल रहा था तो इस घटना के एक किरदार की ही फोटो लगा रहा हूँ।**

आज एक अनुभव बाँटना चाहता हूँ। एक कॉमिक पब्लिशर से मेरी अच्छी बात होती थी, एक बार मैंने जो कमियाँ-बातें नोट की थी वो एक शुभचिंतक के नाते उन्हें ईमानदारी से बताई क्योकि वो उम्र, अनुभव मे मुझसे बड़े थे तो काफी संभल कर डिप्लोमेटिक तरीके से समझाया। उन्होंने इसको बे सर-पैर की आलोचना कहा और मुझे बताया की मेरे सर कुछ ख़ास कॉमिक कंपनियों का भूत चढ़ा है। मुझे ये भी हिंट दी कि अब थोडा मेच्योर होकर ही उन्हें कोई सलाह दूँ या बात करूँ।

सच कहूँ मेरा कोई लालच नहीं था, उनसे काफी ज्यादा बुक्स छाप चुका हूँ और अपनी मर्ज़ी से उतना कामर्शियल नहीं हुआ अभी तक। मै बस चाह रहा था की पहले से ही इतनी कम कंपनियाँ है, जो है वो और बेहतर हो जाएँ, काफी टाइम बिताया है इस फ़ील्ड में सबको देखते हुए, सबसे मिलते हुए ....बात करते हुए। उसी बिनाह पर उनसे कुछ कहाl मैंने बुरा नहीं माना पर बाद मे पता चला की इनकी इस तरह की बहस यहाँ तक की लड़ाइयाँ हो चुकी है आर्टिस्ट्स, राइटर्स, फेंस और इंडस्ट्री से जुड़े लोगो से, थोड़ी शान्ति मिली नहीं तो मुझे लगता मैंने कुछ गलती की होगी।

अब 2013 कॉमिक कॉन, दिल्ली गया। वहाँ वो थे (ज्यादा नहीं बताऊंगा नहीं तो ओबवियस हो जाएगा), अच्छा लगा उन्हें देख कर, उन्होंने मुझे पहचान भी लिया। हालाँकि, आई मस्ट एडमिट वो बिजी नहीं थे पर बन रहे थे क्योकि ये मै अक्सर करता हूँ इसलिए पहचान लिया ...ही ही।

मुझे वहाँ मयंक भैया मिले, उनके साथ ही घूमा। सबके साथ फोटोज लेते हुए लगा की एक फोटो तो उन पब्लिशर के साथ भी होना चाहिए उन्होंने पैसा (चाहे पुश्तैनी ही सही), समय और मेहनत दी है इस फील्ड में। मैंने उनसे फोटो कि रिक्वेस्ट की। अब तक सब ठीक था। पर इसके आगे जो हुआ वो पहले नहीं हुआ। मेरी हाईट 6 फीट 1-2 इंच है जो भारतीय एवरेज के हिसाब से ज्यादा है, ये भगवान् की दी हुई चीज़ें है किसी बन्दे को किसी चीज़ या बात मे एडवांटेज है तो किसी बन्दे को किसी और बात मे ....ये कोई शर्म करने वाली या घमंड करने वाली बात नहीं। ये बात मैंने क्यों बताई .....मयंक भाई हमारी फोटो क्लिक करने वाले है और ये हस्ती जो मेरे साथ खडें है वो उचक रहे है .... उनके जूते की हील काफी नहीं थी ....मुझे विशवास ही नहीं हुआ की ये कर क्या रहा है बंदा ...मन तो किया मै भी उचक जाऊं फिर क्या कुर्सी-स्टूल पर चढ़कर खिंचवायेगा?......पर उचकना ताकि एक फोटो भर में आप एक दूसरे बंदे के बराबर आ सको। भक! मर जाओ बे तुम!!! गधे कहीं के ....वो फोटो भी कभी नहीं लगाऊंगा।

Ghoomayegi muft mey tujhe London se Chin…
Charsi ho gaya tere pehlu ke bin…
Mat kar mera dil tod ke sin…
Jaldi muh mey le…arre, ab to pakad…pighalne lagi hai…
Meri Bhaang Waali Ice Cream !!!!

Procrastination vs. भोले शंकर (Bonsai Kathayen)

 

 

मेरी, जनवरी 2013 मे प्रकाशित हुई किताब  Bonsai Kathayen से एक और पेशकश।
कक्षा 9 का छात्र शुभम कल होने वाले मैथ्स के एग्जाम को लेकर चिंतित था।

ये थ्योरम  समझ नहीं आ रही नेट पर देखता हूँ। आदतन उसकी उँगलियों चली और उसने पहले,

*) - कुछ स्पोर्ट्स स्टार्स और रस्लर्स की प्रोफाइल्स चेक की।

*) - यूट्यूब पर कुछ आगामी फिल्मो के प्रोमोज़ देखे।

*) - सोशल साइंस जिसका पेपर हो चुका  था के रैंडम फैक्ट्स, हालाँकि सोशल साइंस के पेपर से पहले इन्होने सतपुड़ा के जंगल और रेसलरस चार्ली हास और रैंडी ओर्टन की जानकारी लेते हुए घंटो बिताये थे पर आज इन्हें सोशल साइंस भी बड़ी रोचक लग रही थी।

इतना सब करने मे 3:30 बज गए और जब पढाई याद आई तब तक शुभम थक चुका  था, उसने सुबह 6 बजे का अलार्म लगाया और सुबह सब जल्दी से देख लूँगा सोचकर सो गया। सुबह 9 बजे उसके भाई ने उसको उठाया जिसको लगा की ये रात भर पढ़ा है। 10 बजे से परीक्षा थी। शुभम ने घड़ी  देखी  तो वो डिप्रेस हो गया, इतनी जल्दी वो नहाये-धोये, खाए, स्कूल पहुंचे ... का जो सोचा था सब  रह गया।

उसको गुस्सा भी आ रहा था की वैसे गलती से सेट हो जाए तो बिना बात के अजीब टाइम पर बज जाएगा पर जब ज़रुरत थी तो मोबाइल वाला अलार्म आखिर बजा क्यों नहीं? तब उसने ध्यान दिया की मोबाइल घड़ी मे AM की जगह PM सेट था।

"अब तो भोले शंकर का नाम लेकर ही एग्जाम देना पड़ेगा।"

ट्रेंडी बाबा के परवचन : ट्विटर पर कुतिया "सेलिब्रिटी".

नोट - कुतिया एक सिम्बोलिक शब्द है। जो इस तरह के दोनों पुरुषो और महिलाओं पर लागू होता है।

ट्रेंडी बाबा के परवचन : ट्विटर पर कुतिया "सेलिब्रिटी".


*) - पहले लोगो को फॉलो करो और उन्हें मैसेज करके बताओ की फॉलो कर दिया (गिडगिडाओ Plz follow mey back, no one likes me plz plz plz plz xD) वो आपको फॉलो बैक करेंगे। फिर कुछ दिनों बाद चुपके से एक कुतिया की चपलता से उन्हें अन-फॉलो कर दो। जब तुम धीरे-धीरे निरंतर कुतिया बने रहोगे तो एक दिन आएगा (जैसे हर कुत्ते-कुतिया का दिन आता है) की ये फॉलो करने और फॉलो करवाने वाला गैप बहुत बढ़ जायेगा। आप फॉलो तो 200 लोगो को कर रहे होंगे पर आपको फॉलो करने वाले 2000 होंगे
जिस से लोगो को भ्रम होगा की आप कोई सेलेब्रिटी या ख़ास बन्दे हो जो इतने लोग आपको फॉलो कर रहे है जबकि असल मे आप एक खूबसूरत कुतिया हो।


*) - हजारो लोगो की पब्लिक ट्विटस मे से कुछ छोटे अकाउंट्स कि अच्छी, रोचक ट्विटस उठाओ (मैन्युअल टाइपिंग) और दावा करो की मेरी बातें ओरिजिनल है। मेरा कुतियापन पवित्र है। बीच-बीच मे आपकी अपनी कुछ साधारण पोस्ट्स तो रहेंगी ही .... वो ख़ास ट्विटस ढकने के लिये।

*) - कूल डूड़, समाज सुधारक वाली छवि के साथ जियो चाहे तुम्हारा ठरकीपन की हद पार
करते हुए दिन मे नयी, अनजान लड़कियों को 56 प्राइवेट मैसेजस और 32 लड़कियों की फ़िज़ूल की बातें री-ट्विट का एवरेज हो। किसी को शक न हो इसलिए कभी-कबार किसी लड़के या पुरुष सेलिब्रिटी को री-ट्विट कर दो।


*) - की-वर्ड्स, ट्रेंडिंग वर्ड्स की माँ-बहन तोलते हुए सब हपक दो की सर्च इंजन भी तुमसे पूछे कि बता तू कितनी बड़ी कुतिया है?*) - सेलिब्रिटीज, मशहूर लोगो के धान बो दो, मैसेजस, री-ट्विटस, रिफरेन्सस से और जब वो महीनो बाद तंग आकर आपके लिए 2-4 लाइन्स का एक मैसेज करें तो उसका स्क्रीनशॉट लो और .....पब्लिक की पब्लिक में ले लो। जितना छोटा, लोकल सेलिब्रिटी उतने ज्यादा चांस जल्दी और बड़े रिप्लाई आने के।

Not a Potential Rapist!!!

Apne kuch jigri doston (naam nahi likhunga) se khul kar baaten kar pata hun. Halaki, ab Lucknow chhut gaya to ye cheez miss karunga. Unhi khaas dosto mey se ek k saath baitha tha mai last month.

Dost - "Ye heading padh, likha hai...every man is a potential rapist..."

Mohit - "Nahi!!! Maafi sarkaar maafi de do mujhe.....yaar yahan to baksh de TV, Internet, Akhbar, Society...sab jagah blame karoge to kisi din bina crime kiye in blames ka hawala dekar jail mey guilty feel karta hua life kaatunga..."

Dost - "Kaisi Life Inspector Vinay??? Fansi milni chahiye tujhe..."

Mohit - "To tu bhi marega soch lo....ya phir OMG aaj pata chala mera dost mard nahi hai...ha ha ha...medical report k baad jail ka doctor kahega...jaa Shikhandi ji le apni zindagi...."

Dost - "Achchha ek baat bata teri favorite actress, athletes kaun hai....matlab skip a beat...wonder woman type..."

Mohit - "Aajkal to Esha Gupta achchhi lag rahi hai, sports mey Ana Ivanovic...aur bhi hai kuch....kyu?"

Dost - "Achchha imagine kar....tu kahin ka raja hai, tu matlab us desh ka supreme hai tujhe koi darr nahi hai, kuch bhi kar....koi nahi pakadega tujhe...tab tujhe sunsaan sadak par koi Ana Ivanovic ya Esha Gupta jaisi ladki mil jaaye..."

Mohit - "C grade horny movie ka hero bana de mujhe kaminey...."

Dost - "Sun to....khuli chhut hai...koi darr nahi, bandish nahi...kya tu us ladki ka rape karega?"

Mohit - "Nahi...koi chance hi nahi hai."

Dost - "Bhai ko khush karne ko mat bol sach bata....mujhse sach bol sakta hai Bhai...chal tu nashe mey hai...dimaag mannd ho gaya hai kuch der k liye...tab karega uska rape?"

Mai darr gaya ye sochkar, kya karunga mai tab? Kya mai rape kar dunga us ladki ka? Maine pehli baar khud ko kisi aur vyakti k angle se rape karte dekha...us ek second mey hi mai bas kya bataun...hil gaya...

Mohit - "Bhai..maan li teri baaten ki mai raja hun, mujhe koi darr nahi, mai supreme hun, koi saza nahi hone waali mujhe, mera dimaag mand pad gaya hai....par jab wo ladki chillayegi, royegi na to mere haathon ki pakad apne aap dheeli pad jaayegi....aage kuch nahi karega tera bhai....ye antar hota hai mard aur jaanvar mey..."

Dost khush hokar gale lag gaya.

Dost - "Mohit Bhai dil khush kar diya...mai yahi test kar raha tha..."

So, ye hai mera conclusion.....

"Mana India mey 1-2 Australia ki population jitne dooshit mansikta waale purush hai par unke liye 4-5 Russia ki population jitne sahi purusho par gaaj kyu? Kyoki jab laws banti hai to unke ghere mey kai nirdosh bhi pis jaate hai. Ye kaisi victim mentality hai ki doosre group (is case mey gender) k har bande ko criminal bata do. Majority of men would never rape anyone. Men don't just rape people because they feel horny, it's not that basic. Most can resist the lust they have....many men can see what they are doing is wrong. Can I be swayed by my anger and turned into a murderer? Nope. People can't just be "swayed" by emotions and turned into something they weren't already.

Don't trust the secondary info sources to the level that they brainwash you...understand other aspects related to the matter and VERIFY!!!.....Every man has the ability to rape, but so what? If a man has the ability to rape, would you call him a 'potential rapist'? Every woman has the ability to kill a baby, does that mean every woman is a potential child killer? Everyone (except disabled people) has the ability to kill, does that make everyone a potential serial killer?....Every human being has the potential to be anything. Rape is not an act of lust nor is it gender specific. Rape is an act of power and violence. Women rape fellow humans every day. Yes, I mean actual sexual assault kind of rape. Men are just more associated with rape because, as a group, they tend to be more physically violent than women."

Wo Koi Pir Raha Hoga...(Netaji Tribute)


A Tribute to Netaji Subash Chandra Bose 

ग़ुलामी के साये मे जो आज़ाद हिन्द की बातें करता था ...
किसी दौर मे खून के बदले जो आज़ादी का सौदा करता था ...
बचपन मे ही स्वराज के लिये अपनों से दूर हुआ होगा ...
बस अपनी सोच के गुनाह पर जो मुद्दतों जेल गया होगा ...
वो कोई पीर रहा होगा ....

क्या बरमा ...अंडमान  ..
क्या जर्मनी ...जापान ...
शायद ये जहाँ था उसके लिए छोटा ...
किसी दौर ने गोरो पर बंगाली जादू चढ़ते देखा होगा ..
फरिश्तो ने जिसका सजदा किया होगा ....
वो कोई पीर रहा होगा ....

अंदर सरपरस्त साधू .... बाहर पठान का चोगा ...
खुद की कैद को उसने अपनी रज़ा पर छोड़ा था ..
अंग्रेजो की आँखों का धोखा  ....
कहाँ ऐसा हिन्द का हमनवां होगा ..
वो कोई पीर रहा होगा ...

जहान को कुछ बताने ..रविन्द्र सी ग़ज़ल सुनाने ...
या शायद धूप-छाँव का हिसाब करने ज़मी पर यूँ ही आ गया ..
न उसके आने का हिसाब था ..और न जाने का ...
और कहने वाले कहते है वो 1945 के आसमां मे फ़ना हो गया ...
काश रूस पर सियासी बर्फ़ न जमा होती ...
अगर ये बात सच होती तो अनीता-एमिली की आँखों ने दगा दिया होगा ...
गाँधी से जीतकर भी जिसने महात्मा को जिया होगा ...
वो कोई पीर रहा होगा ...

वाकिफ जिंदगी मे जो कभी रुक न सका ....
गुमनामी मे दरिया पार किया होगा ...
दूर कहीं या पास यहीं कितनी मायूसी मे मुल्क को जीते-मरते देखा होगा ...
आज़ाद होकर अपने ज़हन से दूर हुआ होगा ...
 वो कोई पीर रहा होगा...


 वो कोई पीर रहा होगा...
