Dhadke Jiya || Aloo Chaat

What do you do when your entire family is against the bride of your choice? Do you replace your family? Or do you replace the bride? Or do you make an aloo-chaat of your life?

I first heard this song at my cousin wedding the video guy inserted this song.. into the video clip, then in my cousin Dog's wedding I hardly knew what the lyrics meant... but I was mesmerized blown away.... then I found the lyrics.. and found someone who could explain to me the lyrics

"A soft number that has melody at its core, 'Dhadke Jiya' is the one for a long walk with your loved one on a moonlit night"

I am still blown away....

Dhadke Jiya Lyrics

Dekho zara kitna haseen hai,
Phir yeh samaa hai naa,
Jee le zara ek pal mila jo,
Tanhai ka hai naa..
Wo hi hasna hasana,
Kuch keh ke yu sharmaana,
Kuch baaten yu hi aankhon se hi kar jaana,
Achcha lagta hai yeh chehra takte jaana,
Ab aaj gaye ho to naa phir jaana,
Yahi dua yuhi sada…ohhhwooo…
Tere liye dhadke jiya, dhadke jiya…

Yeh raasta gum hoga,
Yeh darr tumhe hai naa?
Main aas paas hi kahin hu,
Itna yakeen to hai naa?
Teri har aahat ka chup chupke peeche peeche aana,
Mujhe tanhai mein tera ek lamha de jaana,
Shayad yeh lamha bhi phir khuda ne,
Tere mere milne ka socha hai bahana, haaaa…
Yahi dua yuhi sada…ohhhwooo…
Tere liye dhadke jiya, dhadke jiya…

Palke yu jhuki to kuch hua tha,
Yeh pal jaise rukk sa gaya tha,
Mere sapno mein bhi har baar tu aana,
Ab aaj gaye ho to naa phir jaana,
Yahi dua yuhi sada…ohhhwooo…
Tere liye dhadke jiya, dhadke jiya, dhadke jiya,
Ohhooo..aahhhhaaa…dhadke jiya…

I saw a rainbow today morning

.. I was getting out of the car and looked in the sky and I smile.... paused to look at it for a while appreciating it for all it's worth

A dear friend of mine is getting registered today said to me rainbow mean hope... i replied we all need hope.. when all else fails Hope is all we got.

Still it was lovely to gaze upon it

Stupidity breeds Stupidity

When Saddam Hussein was no longer allies with the US the media was quickly stated portraying him as a bad guy but when he was in US good books all the bad thing were looked away ... not getting of the telling images replayed again and again was at the end of CNN news a footage showing Saddam brandishing a guy and firing into the air. Time and time again, an image planted in the mind of people.

Another image was 9/11

Another image was Anwar Ibrahim black eye

Time and time again images like these constantly used to further a cause.

I submit to you 2 more nominees for Stupidity breeds Stupidity section of images that will come back again and again to haunt the powers that be

This is a little more compelling

Firstly - Brian Rashwan thanks for inviting me and taking me there... I had not been to plays and theater a long time and it was indeed refreshing to be watching it again.

Also the Appam session was worth every juicy drop, the least I could do is pick up the tab

Secondly - Advisory: recommended for mature audiences only which is posted on the web is very correct.

Well this is KLPAC at night love the way the building lights up.. took me a while to get this shot...

Doors open at 8.30 show starts at 8.45 and there was a crowd.... we were "GUEST" lol

SYNOPSIS: BOTTOM TOP is a story about a 52-year-old mother, Bertha, who is about to re-marry. As she prepares the guest list with her son, Melvin, they screen through the people in their lives to invite as guests for the limited 150 seats at the Oversea Restaurant. Secretly, Bertha is trying to find a seating partner and, ultimately, a partner for her son and suggests various people in her life. Melvin, however, thinks he has better taste.

The stage was simple as seen below but we managet to get good seat, not prime but god seats so it was wonderful.

Bertha is a mother re-marrying again and start making a dinner invite list with her son Melvin who is gay and trying to make him bring a partner (gay) to the dinner, the laughter and jokes and statements as the mother and son bond is explored and revisited.

So being mummy dearest who loves her son and a son that loves the mother (mummy knows he is gay but calls it dan lain lain lol) she suggests men as the market butcher’s son and an unmarried distant uncle who is suspected to be gay.

In between the laughter, I feel for Melvin, of the social and political and realities of life by being gay and trying to find a partner, the pain and joys of a partners coming or leaving all in between innuendos and punchlines that leaves you laughing till tears comes out.

As a parent, as a mummy she wants what best for her kid, accepting he is gay and moving forward talking about her experiences with men and while he shares bout his flings...

In short its worth watching..
