A bit delayed post.
‘Ayushyawar Blou Kahi‘-A live marathi musical show run by Salil Kulkarni and Sandeep Khare.The theme of the show is poetry in the form of songs.This duo has created a magic in the Marathi world by their album named same as the show.I was dying to attend it since long.The show has crossed 500 runs already in Pune,Mumbai and the likes.The duo has also proven the so-called-fact wrong that youth these days is not interested in Marathi language.They are trying to be hep and hence moving towards English and obviously the western culture.But post this album,no one can say that Marathi has lost it’s hold on the younger generation.
Finally my wait was over and this program was scheduled in Indore on 12th February as a part of 52 Maharashtra Sahitya Sabha-Shardotsava
Ironically,the show was to start at 7.30 pm but due to the bad weather conditions the artists came only at 9.45 pm and started the program at 10.00 pm which of course lasted till 12 in the midnight. The show was phenomenal.Some of the most favorite songs,that I love to hear multiple times,are these:Ayushyawar Bolu Kahi,Damlelya Babachi Kahani,Atasha Ase he,Me Morcha Nela Nahi…
So, the 12th was made wonderful by this show and I was looking forward to the 13th for we were going to watch MNIK.
About the movie:My name is Khan
The movie is related to the much talked about and steps-should-be-taken terrorism.It’s a story of a man,Rizwan Khan[SRK] who is autistic by birth.But his mother brings him up in a manner that he is no lesser than a normal human being apart from his walking and expressions.He is a brilliant chap and after his mother’s death he reaches to the US of A to live with his younger brother and sister-in-law.He meets Mandira [Kajol]-who is divorced and has a teenage son-Sameer.Mandira and Khan decide to marry.It is then that the turbulence starts in the movie.Incidently,shortly after their marriage the 9/11 incident takes place and US citizens start targeting all Muslims.This certainly effects the Khan-Mandira family to an extent that they loose Sameer to death.
So,the movie is all about how Khan wants to meet the president and tell him that ‘My name is Khan and I’m not a terrorist’. The movie wants to convey a simple message that not every Muslim is guilty and hence should not be charged or suspected.
So,this was 13th and then I was looking forward to 14th.Ahh,not because of the Valentine’s Day..well because we had a trip planned to Maheshwar,a place near by Indore.I have already posted the details and some pictures here.Go check.
The weekend was rocking and I hope the week brings in a lot of happiness too 🙂 What did you do on this weekend ? And how was your V-day ?
In the second half of the movie SRK and his supporters wear T-shirts with a message
‘My Name is xyz and I’m not a terrorist’. It clicked me and I decided that I’m going to paint this message on my Tee
