Babu Bhai & Me

Stray Dog
I met Babu Bhai ( dog in 1st pic) during our picnic @Gregery's home ,Vasai , I instantly liked him specially unique name as Babu Bhai . totally different from so called Jimmy , Tommy , Lucky etc.
2nd one is stray from our society , look almost same as Babu Bhai .
For me Stray dogs always look inoceient , just luv them , part of our circle  during my childhood time , when we used to take our 2-3 street dogs along with us to football/cricket play ground every Sunday.

Godhuli Bela :गोधूलि बेला ::Dusk

Godhuli Bela :गोधूलि बेला ::Dusk
Café Reminiscence

 I do not know , but I am always fascinated with this Hindi word " गोधूलि ",and the meaning associated with it.
Go ( Cow) worshiped by we Hindus.
It was decided long back , that if I ever own a big house , I will name it “Godhuli” OR “Sharanam”.

गोधूलि शब्द का अर्थ हॅ - गो + धूल = अर्थात गायों के पॅरों से उठने वाली धूल।
पुराने समय में जब गायें जंगल से चरकर वापस आती थीं तो पता चल जाता था कि शाम होने वाली हॅ। इसलिए इस समय विशेष को गोधूलि बेला कहने लगे। अर्थात संध्या का समय।
Evening time the cowherds bring the cattles back home & eager to embrace their  calves , the loose red soil of the kachha pagdandi (road) blown in the air by the Cow’s khur (feet) , form red clouds & Sun appeared red , the this particular Dusk time called “Godhuli Bela” or magical twilight . Which is not just any particular time of the day , but symbolizes Indian Kissan  way of life .
2nd Picture was taken from TOI ,way back in 2002 , traced finally ,as I just luv the scene.

She's alive - and suddenly Havelock is a marked man, on the run from both US and Russian assassins. Racing around the globe after his beautiful betrayer, Havelock is trapped in a massive mosaic of treachery created by a top-level Mole with the world in his fist - Parsifal ...........

Ranbir Kapoor

Ranbir Kapoor,Katrina, Khuda Jane, Rajneeti

I started liking this boy , 1st Bachna Ai ..,then Wake up Sid , then Rajneeti.
He as Samar Pratap really stole the whole show, overshadowed everybody , even Ajay & Manoj Bajpai.
Western educated Sauvé , elite ,cold blooded .I just loved every frame of him , Powerful performance with grey shades ,specially ;
Sitting on sofa watching news.
Hugging Kat , after getting her approval of marriage  (business) & eye contact with Mama ji.
Stage scene , his dressing of white Linen coat.
Scene with Babu lal , asking for phone call detail 
Gr8 performance , Thanks to Prakash Jha for experimenting with Kapoor , they do not belong to YRF/KJO only !.
  Also wake up Sid , was smooth.
Then final assault in " Rockstar" u rock Ranbir.
Then Barfi! , awesome , laughter n tears in same package!

My fav song among all Ranbir's.

Tesu (Palash) Ke Phool

Café Reminiscence : Tesu ,Palash
Café Reminiscence
Recent business trip to Raipur/Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh was  good , moreover travelling in between small towns & seeing  kachhe ghar . Greenery , water ponds ( many found there)  , Seeing village men/women washing cloths on Pond /river steps ,boys diving ,Animals , Khet , is always enthralling.
Reason to blogpost this trip is Tesu , I was delighted to see lots of Tesu trees &  Holi season  is blooming time for Tesu , such a beautiful tree/flower , natural color/dye , having traditional value , as  dry Tesu flowers were being used to make colors for Holi .Tesu is also having literary value like Cactus ( liked by Poets)
.I heard there are good handicraft items are available , but was unable to get some due to time constraint.
