Jaan Se Bhi Pyaari Hai Dosti Hamaari

All numbers are unique unto themselves – inasmuch as each number has its own claim to fame just by being what it is. And but for the imagination and fancies applied by our minds, which at times picks on certain characteristics and binds some special stature to some of them, all these numbers would be as interesting, or for that matter disinteresting, as any other number. Let me quote the instance of a number that has now become famous as the ‘Hardy – Ramanujan Number’. This anecdote is attributed to a conversation in or about 1919 (wow, ninety seven years ago), that happened in London. Indian mathematician Srinivas Ramanujan, who was based in London for some time, was ill and confined to his bed at his residence. His friend, Godfrey Hardy, another mathematician (who had invited and arranged for Ramanujan’s travel etc. to London), came visiting him. The initial conversation was about Hardy’s journey to see Ramanujan. He mentioned off hand that the number of the taxicab in which he had travelled, was 1729 – for all intents a most uninteresting and boring number. To this comment, Ramanujan replied that ‘1729’ was a very special number. In fact it is the smallest number that can be represented as the sum of two cubes, in two different ways. (I am avoiding the calculation details; interested readers can google this for more details).

So the point I am trying to make is that a number is a number is a number. We humans try to discover interesting aspects, and attach interesting characteristics, to make the discussion interesting. Now coming to our blog. We too have a fancy for numbers, as is evident by the amount of discussion and mental calisthenics applied to certain categories. Always, a century milestone has been a matter of big celebration. But I am sensing a drift now in the enthusiasm associated with it. Maybe, after celebrating one hundred and twenty three (123 for short) century milestones, the glitter of this theme is kind of wearing thin. Quoting Peevesie’s Mom ji, from one of her recent comments – she says she is no longer so enamored by the century breaks; she now looks forward more to the thousandth milestones. In fact, we all do remember how big an affair the ten thousandth milestone turned out to be.  After that, the century events look somewhat timid and also ran. In recent memory, the bigger affairs have been the eleven thousandth and the twelve thousandth campsites.

And yes, in between, do pop up, some special patterns which do warrant a special hullabaloo. The previous one in memory was the five aces number – ‘11111’, which was eventually adorned by the iconic song from the film ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ (1977) – “Hum Ko Tum Se Ho Gaya Hai Pyaar Kya Karen”. I do remember emails popping in from some gang members before we arrived at that number, goading Atul ji and myself to plan something special. And once we ran past the twelve thousandth barrier, there were more than one comments and messages about the arrival of the next peculiar signboard – the number of today’s post – twelve thousand three hundred and forty five, or 12345 for short. In the past couple of weeks, yes, there have been a couple of reminders, requesting us not to miss this opportunity to celebrate this most interesting pattern in five digit numbers – all digits in a perfect ascending sequence. And I did assure Mahesh ji, whose reminders were consistent, that yes, we are seized of this eventuality and will be planning something special.

But to tell you people the real truth – this time around, me and Atul ji were quite at sea, grappling with various combinations and probabilities, and for a longest possible time, we were not able to come up with an interesting combination of milestones or targets or situations that would do justice to this sequential 5 digit number, and also be ensconced inside a song, such that a post may be created out of it. The communications that Atul ji and I have been having, tell of the zaniness of ideas we were bouncing around and the near despair that we were facing in coming up with a deserving tie up. The story goes something like this, in short.

The first and the obvious thing to do is to go for a song that goes with the line “Ek Do Teen Chaar. . .”. Now coming to think of it, this is not at all a difficult thing to do. There is any number of such songs in the realm of Hindi film music. Actually, Atul ji had even selected the one from the film ‘Tezaab’ (1988) – “Ek Do Teen, Chaar Paanch Chhe Saat Aath Nau, Das Gyaarah, Baarah Teraah”. Well, not a bad idea at all – this song was one of the greatest hits of 1988 and the starting bars – “Ding Dong Ding, Ding Dong Ding Dang Dong Dong. . .” was quite a rage with the kids. In the absence of any other good (great??) ideas, I was kind of leaning towards this option. But then I recanted and wrote back to Atul ji, and I would not want to do this song for this post for two reasons. The first being that looking at a number like  ‘12345’, the most simplistic thing we could think of is “Ek Do Teen. . .”, and so selecting this song for the milestone post does not sound too convincing. And the second reason that wrote to him that this song is seemingly so special that I would rather save it for the ‘12345678910111213th ’ post on our blog. Hmmm.. . that would translate to, well, ‘बारह पद्म, चौंतीस नील, छप्पन खरब, अट्ठत्तर अरब, इक्यानवे करोड़, एक लाख, ग्यारह हज़ार दो सौ तेरहवां’ song on our blog. Goodness, I don’t think there are going to be that many songs in Hindi films, even if we add all the NFS songs to the mix. But friends, what a thought – gives us all a wonderful reason to live for a very very very long time 🙂 :).

So, with this ‘ab initio’ option out of the way, then we started looking for the next best drum roll. Now we started to focus on getting to a combination of artists who are close to century marks in their respective counts. Meaning, we started looking for combinations where one artist would be at 100, another artist at 200, a third artist at 300 and so on. Goodness, I and Atul ji spent a few sleepless night, poring through the stat pages, as well as our personal compilations of blog songs, that would help to bring in the actor stats also. We got to some imperfect combinations, but frustratingly, for those combinations shortlisted, were not able to find the one song that would bring together the identified artists. After some sleepless nights, we decided this path would lead us nowhere.

Then I had a brainwave. I wrote to Atul ji that let us celebrate this milestone as a set of 5 songs. These would be the posts 12341 to 12345. Each one of the songs in these posts would progressively have something special relating to the numbers 1, 2, 3 and so on. Each song would celebrate something about an artist or a movie, related it to the numbers 1 thru 5. We could do 5 artists who are not yet on the blog; and present one each of their really rare performances. Alternatively, we could do  5 artists who are on the blog; but to post extremely unheard, unknown songs of these artists. One more thought that we considered was artists with post no. 1, 12, 123, 1234 and so on. This seemed promising, but we could not locate enough collateral for this. ‘1’ and ’12’ was easy, but the nearest to 123 was still eight posts behind. And no one even reasonably close to 1234. And then in desperation, I suggested that we shall do five songs with artists for whom it would be the 1st post, the 2nd post, the 3rd post, and so on. Of course, after putting it on paper, even this idea appeared very flimsy and simplistic. And so after a couple of back and forth iterations, Atul ji responded half heartedly, in a manner that jammed this brainwave in its infancy, saying that milestone is a milestone; can’t have it spread over five posts.

We continued to bandy more ideas back and forth. I did some analysis of the posts at numbers 1, 12, 123, 1234, hoping to find some interesting pattern that could be extrapolated to the 12345th post. I was driven by my experience with the 11111th post. Regulars would remember the discovery that I had made. The four singers that are featured in our 11111th post, all individually figure solo in the post nos. 1 (Rafi Sb), 11 (Kishore Kumar), 111 (Mukesh) and the 1111 (Lata Mageshkar). No such luck this time around. I dug in and went on to explore other such combinations. I tried all kind of zany combinations – post nos. 12, 23, 34, 45, post nos. 123, 234, 345, post nos. 1234 and 2345. It was not leading anywhere. I was panicking now.

Then Atul ji suggested a variation. He said let us check for song categories instead of artists, and try to build combinations of occurrences of songs in a category. Once again, we made a dive into our stat sheets and excel files. And yet once again, the prize combination eluded us. And here I was thinking, that I had responded to Mahesh ji that Atul ji and I are seized of this eventuality, but we are not likely going to have something to show for it. The proverbial ‘pudding’ will just not be there for ‘eating’, so what to prove about it.

Atul ji seemingly gave up. He sent me a message saying that Rafi Sb is close to his 26th century mark, and the number of songs in the year 1957 is standing at 399. So let us just select a good song by Rafi Sb from the year 1957 and be done with the milestone. He then followed it up with a short list of possible candidates, as his suggestion for this idea. I was quite bankrupt myself, in my ideas account by this time, and was getting inclined to go with his suggestion. However, I continued to have this nagging feeling in the back of my mind that we are letting pass a significant event, and do not have anything to show for it. Going by the song of Rafi Sb from 1957, would in no way link the song to the peculiarity of the post number. That would be quite a memorable post – we would celebrate a milestone without really celebrating the milestone.

Then, in the depths of such despairing thoughts, there came another flash of an idea. Atul ji had set 21st as the target to publish this post, and we were already behind the schedule. And in the midst of this came this flash. I shared this with Atul ji, and he too became excited about it. I asked for some more time (sic) to do the research, but I had this feeling that the idea would work. What finally transpired, i.e. this song, actually goes beyond even my own expectations with this idea as it first came to me.

So the idea came as I was poring over pages of Geet Kosh trying to strike something for this post. It suddenly dawned on me – well there are songs which are solo, duets or trios. There are music directors that are duo, and even trio. So how about pulling together a combination that would bring together a solo, a duo and a trio. I sent this idea to Atul ji, and then started another long search, through the Geet Kosh listings this time, to search for movies of duo music directors and trio music directors. After some time of searching through the S-Js and L-Ps and Suresh-Talwars, I finally was able to locate songs compliant to this idea, for music directors Sonik-Omi and Lala-Asar-Sattaar. Atul ji reminded me again to look for Rafi Sb song, so that we can bring up his 2600th song on our blog. I was able to locate one song each with both these music director teams, that has Rafi Sb singing, and also complying with the 1..2..3..4 structure of the post no. We were close, but at this point, I did not realize how close we really were.

The two songs I selected – one is a duet in the voice of Rafi Sb and Kamal Barot from the 1965 film ‘Sangraam’. Music is by Lala-Asar-Sattaar and lyrics by Madhukar Rajasthani. So I am able to get 3 of the 5 conditions met – One Lyricist, Two Singers, and Three Music Directors. The second song is from the 1976 film ‘Yaari Zindabad’, with music by Sonik Omi. This song, which makes it to the podium today, is sung by 3 singers – Rafi Sb, Manna Dey and Minu Purushottam. So once again, 3 conditions met – One Lyricist (MG Hashmat), Two Music Directors and Three Singers. So I now had a choice to make. I went in and listened to these songs carefully, and something about the ‘Yaari Zindabad’ song struck a chord within (I will come to it little later in write up), and I decided to go with this one. And friends, this was the providence helping me make the choice, for till that time, I was not aware what more good luck was in store for me.

As I checked the YouTube, I could not locate this full song as a standalone video clip. Either just the audio was available, which does not carry the voice of Minu Purushottam. The LP/EP version of this song does not contain the antaraa with her voice. Or the video was either not complete, or was available only inside a complete selection of the songs of this film. So I decided to make a new video clip for this song, from the film on the disc. And in making and editing this clip, I made two wonderful discoveries, that completed the run for all the numbers. That surely is providence working for us. 🙂 🙂

I discovered that on screen, 4 actors are lip syncing the voices of playback singers. AND. This song appears in 5 parts in the film. And voila – I had the complete set of 12345 done and packaged for publishing. So here is the rundown of numbers.

One – Lyricist

 

MG Hashmat

 

Two – Music Directors

 

Sonik – Omi

 

Three – Singers

 

Rafi Sb, Manna Dey, Minu Purushottam

 

Four – Actors Lip Syncing on Screen

 

Kiran Kumar – Rafi Sb
Mahendra Sandhu – Manna Dey
Joginder – Rafi Sb
Actress (green sari) – Minu Purushottam
(either Lata Sinha or Sadhna Khote) 
Five No. of times this multi part song appears in the film

 

I simply could not believe myself, how these numbers finally rolled together. And ‘sonay pe suhaaga’ – the 2600th song of Rafi Sb on the blog. I could not have done any better, and in fact, I could not have done even this without the providence stepping in.

And that, my friends, is the story of ‘12345’. 🙂

Now, coming to the emotional connect with this song. I have written about this before, in some of my earlier writings also. The songs about friendship, move me. There is a premise of synthesis, when two minds, two beings come together in understanding and camaraderie. It is this synthesis, this convergence of emotions that means the world to me. Such emotions have the power to move me to tears. This song, it brings in this feeling so strongly, that I had no second thoughts about picking this as the song for today.

In this song, this emotional thread of amity and alliance works through at two levels. One is a very personal level, wherein one being connects with and interacts with another being. Most times, there is no specific reason that can be attributed to this attraction. It simply is. We call it by many names – resonance, frequency matching, meeting of minds, etc. But what it specifically is, is hard to put into words. In friendship, we learn that we share the joys, as well as we share the sorrows. We learn that we like to care, we learn that we like to help, we learn to support, and we learn to share the burdens when travelling together. We learn of companionship, and we learn about togetherness. And I always like to share my feelings about this personal liking, sharing and togetherness, especially with reference to our musical bandwagon. As I was listening to this song and seeing the visuals, some of the words and some of the deeds struck that chord within that connects with the love of music, and the togetherness that is shared within our circle. And I am moved. And when that happens, I want to share this emotion with all.

kabhi tootegi na yaari
yaari zindabad

And then, there is one more level of this sharing and togetherness that moves my heart with an equal compulsion. This is the level of the community, and the social fabric that we all are a part of. Many events of the recent past, and even of longer memories, bring an anguish to the heart, as to how the vested political interests exploit the naturally occurring variations in the society, to sow seeds of differentiation, and pit a brother against his own brother. Be it the unrest in the Kashmir valley, or the maltreatment of one human being by another, simply based on the social standings within the society; be it the exploitation and depravement of the people in their natural habitation or be it simply the manipulative abuse and physical violation of personal propriety on account of religion or caste or gender. This widespread malaise, is a frightening agony for the mind, as one continues to hear about such events and incidents, day in and day out. None of this happens spontaneously. All of it is motivated and orchestrated, by vested interests who desire to have limitless power over other human beings. It is a mindless obsession that eventually results only in suffering, even for the perpetrators. But who would want to put their minds to this thought.

The problem of the social divide in our society, based on religion and caste, is the worst legacy from the days of oppression by the British rule, that we have refused to give up, even at the cost of substantially destroying the social fabric and the normal tolerant existence, that is the bulwark of this land. Maybe it is a utopian expectation, but my heart continues to want to believe in the innate goodness of a human being – the goodness that would deter any person to inflict any grief or injury upon another human being, simply based on the reasons of variation and differences between human beings. It is the law of nature that no two beings, no two minds are created alike. And in addition, every mind is also instilled with the intelligence to appreciate and respect these differences. It is a long and futile debate to deliberate why and how this intelligence gets suppressed and the wilder instincts of greed and power take over and prevail. The end result of this conflict is only misery, and more misery.

On such an unsightful canvas, when one encounters a streak of even just the words, as are contained within this song, there is a moment of relief that descends upon the troubled mind. It is just a poet’s vision, just a hopeful aspiration, saying how this world should be, as opposed to how this world is, as we actually see and perceive it. And the heart is elated, just to know that there is / are other such minds that crave for this amiable tolerance and understanding, to overcome the mindless divisive rage that is cutting through the fabric of our society. That is the relief that moves my heart to tears, when one encounters expressions such as the one in this song

ek hindu ek musalmaan hai
gaadi ke hain do pahiye

And the heart cries for hope, hope for amity, and hope for a friendly brotherly love that I want to share with all.

Yes, glory be to friendship, glory be to peace and love.

Yaari Zindabad.

Thank you Sudhirji for discovering this long forgotten song. It used to b a regular on Vividh Bharati some 40 years bk.
Congratulations Atulji & Sudhirji on taking the effort to make song number 12345 special! And this is indeed a new way of bringing up this special number…. one, two, three,four,five

Thanks Peevesie’s Mom ji,

Yes, a very special song and a very special memory indeed.

Sudhir ji,

Thanks a lot for the efforts made to locate the unique song for the unique number 12345. I would not have imagined in my wildest dream that such a song existed.

In the context of Hindi films, whenever, there are discussions between writers and directors for scenario writing, generally the writ of directors would prevail. But in the case of this special post, the perseverance of the writer (Sudhir ji) paid off. The ‘director’ (Atul ji) must have relieved to know that at last, the unique song for this special occasion was found.

🙂

Thanks Sadanand ji,

I share your sentiment about not knowing that such a song exists. This HFM is such a big ocean. I am sure there are many more such surprises hiddnen in the depths of this ocean.

As mentioned in the writeup, century posts and also thousandth posts are the “regular” occasions of celebration for the blog. Post number 11111 was perhaps the first occasion when we celebrated a non century post. That number was significant arithmetically and we managed to make that a memorable occasion, with as many as five (or rather six) individual centuries getting combined into a song writeup where the song itself was as rare as the number 11111. And then Sudhir Ji, the author of that writeup discovered the amazing coincidence that the four singers of post number 11111 had figured in solo songs in post numbers 1, 11, 111 and 1111- and that too in the same order in which their voices appeared in the song post number 11111 ! Such coincidences are preordained and us humans are just puppets to such divine scheme of things. I may have mentioned earlier that I have been involved in such rare and mind blowing coincidences even in the past.

Regulars (especially Mahesh Mamadapur, who never fails to remind us of such occasions) must have been waiting for something spectacular on the lines of post number 11111. And Sudhir Ji assured him that yes, he was aware of this occasion. Unlike post number 11111, where regulars guessed the song that was going to figure, no one could guess which song was going to feature as song number 12345. How could anyone guess this song when even the author of the post was not sure of the song 🙂 This reminds me of B S Chandrashekhar, the legendary leg break bowler of 1960s and 1970s. No batsman in the world could guess what delivery he was going to bowl next, simply because B S Chandrashekhar (incidentally a huge fan of singer Mukesh) himself did not know what delivery he was going to bowl next. 🙂

It was just a couple of days back that Sudhir Jee zeroed in on the song, and even then he was not very sure that the writeup was going to sound convincing enough for the occasion. He had discovered the one, two, three and four part of the song, but the five part was still elusive. And the song indeed turned out to possess a FIVE part as well. What a spectacular and amazing discovery of a song !

I am so mightily relieved that the blog has lived upto its reputation of coming up with amazing songs and writeups for major occasions like 11111 and 12345. Hopefully another such “artificial” occasion is not going to come anytime soon and so we can continue celebrating “normal” milestones in near future. 🙂

All credits go to Sudhir ji for this mind blowing discovery and write up for post number 12345.

After 12345, this is the SIXTH comment posted for this unique posting. Wow, What a Himalayan effort by Atulbhai and Sudhirbhai to select the post !! Congratulations. May your ‘Faldroop’ brains search many more posts like this.

Dear Bharat ji,

Thanks for your blessings. It is such words of appreciation that helps to keep our brains and our energies fertile.

Sudhir

Dear Atul ji,

These comments from you mean so much for me.

And as for the “artificial” milestones, come to think of it, there are many more that we missed on the way. Actually, we started paying attention to them only when we hit ‘11111’. All such numbers in three and four digit ranges simply came and went. Now we are in the 5 digit range, and so the gaps to come to arrive at such numbers will be larger. Possibly, the next such milestone would be ‘22222’, which is 9877 posts hence. Lot of time to prepare for that one ;).

Rgds
Sudhir

We want more occasions to celebrate our wonderful Blog. Please dig out the next number, not very far from 12345 for that celebration.

1,11,111: Number of posts required to arrive at such a number again (123456-12345)

Lastly. I have no words to thank for the efforts taken by Atul ji and Sudhir ji for arriving at such posts and song selection time and again.

Dear Mahesh ji,

Thanks for the appreciation and encouragement, and the additional inputs.

As I mentioned above, possibly the next such “artificial” milestone would be ‘22222’.

Congratulations Atul ji and Sudhir ji …!!!
Thank you Sudhir ji for this unique song+post for post no 12345 !!
Great efforts by you have made this ‘unique celebration’ possible. Have yet to listen this song. I think it must be there in my vague memories since it’s a song of ‘seventies’.
Once again Congratulations to all and many many thanks to Atul ji …!!!

Thanks Avinash ji,

Yes, I am sure you will recall immediately when you listen to the song.

What an absolutely fascinating post this is!

Just reading about the whole process of picking a song for the occasion is so much fun – though I can imagine how much Atul and Sudhirji would have racked their brains to find a befitting song! Like Atul says, thankfully, from now on, for a while at least, we will have “normal” milestone songs. 🙂

All the combinations considered are quite inventive in themselves – but the one finally picked is just outstanding in its completeness. One lyricist, two music directors, 3 singers, 4 actors (picturised on), 5 occurrences in the film! Wow! Just wow!

And what a song! With just the right words for the friendship that we have built thanks to this blog. Like Sudhirji says often, and I second him wholeheartedly, the sense of sharing of joys and sorrows, the connect that is hard to describe and is best felt – that is what finally matters. Especially in the midst of all the divisiveness that surrounds us in the world today.

Thank you for this wonderful, wonderful post, Sudhirji. And thanks Atul, for being the sparring partner in the intellectual exercise that resulted in this wonderful outcome that is No.12345.

And of course, congrats for Rafisaab’s 2600th also.

Thanks Raja ji,

Quite honestly, even I myself was wow’ed when I discovered the 4th and the 5th dimensions to this song. Before that, I was thinking I will have to make do with just the first three dimensions.

Thanks again for your appreciation.

And yes, not to forget the Rafi Sb 26th century. 🙂

Atul ji and Sudhir ji,

Words fail me to appreciate the dedication, efforts and the eagerness to hold the image high in your case. You both have truly maintained the reputation of this Blog to present special songs for special occasions.
We know that it is not as simple as we all writing about it here. The write up of Sudhir ji has amply shown the real level of genuine efforts in this case to get the right song.
It is said God is always with those who strive hard. That is how today’s song is appearing here with your hard work and His blessings.
I feel proud of being a team member of this Blog.

Dear Arun ji,

It is words such as your comments, that makes spending the energy worth its while. Thanks and thanks again.

In this case, it surely is the providence that has supported us in completing the full accomplishment. His blessings are the most important impetus for us.

wah wah Atul ji and Sudhir ji, what dedication, what passion!! Goodness, who could have even thought that such a thing is possible ……. You people keep on acing yourselves. With this happening, I would not be surprised with anything that you guys are going to do in future!!!
Congrats to you both and the team 🙂

Thanks Aparna ji,

For your strong encouragement. I hope that we are able to live up to expectations, as we move forward with more such possibilities in the future.

Kya jugat lagai hai, Sudhirji. Kamaal kar ditta.

Aapka dimag to computer se bhi zyada tez daudta hai – like Chacha Chaudhary.

Dear Ava ji,

Bilkul sahi, balle balle ho gai, ummeedaan to wi uchi.

Aur kya yaad dilaaya hai – Chacha Chaudhry, a one time favorite comic strip character. 🙂

Thanks ji

Amazing!
Mindboggling!!
Stupendous!!!
Fantabulous!!!!
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!!!!

Uff! What a post!
मार डाला ज़ालिम!
(Lovers of Queen’s English surely would frown on this surfeit of exclamation marks but what the heck. I plead not guilty – the post, and the occasion, makes me go unashamedly over the top.)
Sudhir ji, you are a wizard.
Enough has already been said by the earlier fellow Atulites and stalwarts
about your post and all the lavish praise is richly deserved for all the sleep deprived nights spent by you two – Atul ji and yourself.
Pre-ordained or divine assistance I do not know but it is said that providence favours hard work and inspiration comes to a prepared mind. Examples are galore, like Kekule’s dream of a snake biting its tail which led to his discovery of molecular structure of Benzene or Newton propounding Law of Gravity from seeing a falling apple.
Thanks a zillion to ASAD Team for keeping us enthralled all the time.
Gratefully yours,
Avadh Lal
P.S.: I observe that you have a head for figures. I too am fascinated by the fun provided by the world of numbers. it occurs to me that there is a magical number which perhaps could meet your consideration in this respect and, if it passes muster, it would be a much much nearer milestone.

Dear Avadh Lal ji,

This is the most incredible and remarkable set of superlatives shower so far, not to forget the overwhelming splatter of exclamation marks accompanying it. And the fantastic reminder from ‘Mary Poppins’ – it has completely made my day.

Thanks so much for this over-the-board surge of encouraging sentiments.

And please, oh please, do share the magic number you have in mind. 🙂

Sudhir

He has already shared that magic number at the end. 🙂

Like the Train No. 12345 Saraighat Express from Howrah to Guwahati our blog is hurtling down the musical track singing away…
gaadi bula rahi hai
siti baja rahi hai
sab ko suna rahi hai
pyar bare gaane

Wow! What a phenomenal post. Sudhir ji.. the way you write is mesmerising always, and then to make a connect for 12345.. what do I say? Just speechless. I bow before thee and feel blessed to be part of the ASAD family.

Pradeep ji,

Yes, this was quite an unexpected fitting connect for the number. And providence helped us big time, as Atul ji has stated.

Thanks for your message of appreciation.’

Dear Sudhirbhai,

You refer to HFGK to find a relevant song to celebrate a special moment on the blog and say it’s like finding a needle in the haystack! Now just imagine we all ASAD members, referring to the dictionary to find those words (or should I say just a word) to express our gratitude for giving us these surprises one after another…. Mujhe abhi tak ek shabd bhi nahi mila jis se aap ko ye samjha saku ki ye post padh ne ke baad meri kya haalat huyi hai!!! I can hear you singing “Haal kaisa hai janab ka….” lol.

Thanks to you and our Atulji for serving us these delicious items!!

Khaas bhai paas. 🙂

Dear Atul ji,
Thanks a heap for going greatest lengths for entertaining all of us – Atulites.
By the way, have you ever noticed that if you start by train from Kolkata to see the holy Golden Temple, historic Jalianwala Bagh and the famous Durgiana temple in Amritsar, you pass through all odd stations including my city – Lucknow?
Once again, with full of gratitude and warmest regards,
Avadh Lal
