Aaiye aapka intezaar thhaa

Even as we have been celebrating the journey of this blog over 3000 days, there has been another journey that has taken place recently.

Avinash Scrapwala, our Nagpur-based Atulite, happened to visit Bengaluru earlier this week for a short trip with his wife. If you’ve read the post , you will notice a mention of his boarding the train at Nagpur at 10:10 hrs and expecting to reach at 06:40 hrs the next morning.

There’s a possibility Avinashji will himself give us his perspective on the trip in a post or two of his own. But in the meantime, I thought I would give an aankhon-dekha-haal (ok, deferred) version from the Bengaluru side.

A few days before the trip, Avinashji informed some of us local Bengalureans of his plan to visit Bengaluru with his wife. He wanted to keep it low-key till it was confirmed. Given his track record of raising hopes and cancelling plans at the last minute, this was understandable. 🙂

This time, of course, unlike earlier occasions when it was an official visit and therefore much more prone to programme change, there was more chance of success. Besides, his wife was travelling too – so it looked more likely the trip would happen.

Even so, we were not taking any chances. Until we saw Avinashji alighting from the train onto a Bengaluru platform we would not believe that the eagle had actually landed. 🙂

To have more of a comfort level and to have a feeling of being co-passengers (many of us, self included, love train travel anyway) we decided to monitor his trip all the way from Nagpur to Bengaluru through our whatsapp group.

So we requested Avinashji to let us know as soon as he boarded the train. When he confirmed he had boarded it, we heaved a sigh of relief. First box ticked.

Then, along the way he gave us updates. Kazipet, Secunderabad. When he sent us a selfie pic from the platform of Secunderabad station, we messaged him to ensure he got back onto the coach in time. We were all too familiar with film sequences of people running to catch a running train and getting left behind. That is all ok for a film – but strictly belongs only there, not in real life. 🙂

Anyway, the monitoring went on and we felt comfortable that finally Avinashji would land at Bengaluru City Station (now called KSR Bengaluru).

I was very excited that night with the thought that the next morning I’d be meeting Avinashji. I requested my brother-in-law to drive me to the station – I don’t drive in Bengaluru anymore. He obliged.

So the next morning, there I was, waiting on Platform 10 outside coach B5.

First Avinashji’s wife alighted. And then, right behind her, the man himself.

What a moment!

I should have probably captured that moment on camera but it didn’t strike me at the time. Anyway, it was crowded on the platform so we made our way out to the parking lot as soon as we could.

Soon we got home and I introduced Avinashji and his wife to family.

We had not planned anything in advance for the day. I wanted Avinashji and his wife to first feel comfortable, take rest if they needed to, after the journey. After that, we would see what to do.

What Avinashji did not know was that there was another person who would be visiting us that morning.

The day before his arrival, I got a call from Peevisie’s Mom. She said, maybe she could juggle her work a bit and make it to my place to meet Avinashji and his wife, on the morning of their arrival? Was that ok with me?

Arrey, was I OK? I was more than OK, I was very happy. I am an introvert of the nth degree but I make an exception for Atulites – they are always welcome to drop in anytime. 🙂 And while the gangout was planned only for the next day (Sunday), there was no reason not to meet up before then. It is not like bride and bridegroom not supposed to see each other the day before the wedding. 🙂

We decided we would keep it a surprise for Avinashji.

So that morning (Saturday), while Avinashji and I were just chatting, Peevisie’s Mom landed at my place at about 10.15 a.m. Avinashji’s eyes reflected the surprise of the occasion.

The discussion now became more intense – about music, especially about the blog. We discussed songs which needed to be posted, we discussed upcoming birthdays/anniversaries, especially Asha Parekh’s, which was on the very next day.

It was good to see Peevisie’s Mom and Avinashji discussing how, when one of them had identified a song to be written up about, the other would “grab” it and post it. Avinashji clearly felt he had become a victim of this practice. We felt that this was like a PoK situation – maybe we needed an LoC? 🙂

As usual, there’s never enough time when you’re discussing music. We had lunch at a restaurant nearby and resumed our discussion for another couple of hours. Then Peevisie’s Mom had to leave.

That evening, I took Avinashji and his wife to the park where I go for my morning walk. We also went to a temple nearby – it was decorated for Navratri.

Back home, Avinashji gifted me three books. There was really no need for this – I’d already told him earlier before his trip but he insisted, saying “iske liye please na mat kahiye”. And, a wonderful collection of his daughter’s poems – a real treasure. It was just amazing to read not just the way she had crafted the poetry, but also get a window into her thoughts at that age (she was just 12 at the time she wrote this). The thoughts about family, siblings, the environment, nature, happiness and much more – amazingly meaningful thoughts that would do an adult proud.

We then continued our discussion about the blog. We’d promised Peevisie’s Mom a post for Asha Parekh’s birthday – so we got down to working on it. Our initial plan of a Bharosa (1963) song had to be changed, as the song we had in mind was already posted.

So we decided on a song from Mahal (1968) – “bade khoobsoorat ho tum naujawaan”. We split the work – Avinashji said he’d write up the lyrics, I decided to do the write-up. So we worked on that, and got it over to Atul in time for Asha Parekh’s birthday.

This, in a nutshell (ok, a rather big nut), is how Day-1 of the Bengaluru trip went for Avinashji and his wife.

The next day, Day-2 of Avinashji’s trip, was the gangout day. Obviously, that will be covered in a separate post.

The song for today is one that has been picked keeping in mind the build-up for Avinashji’s trip. Granted he had to cancel many times in the past (for valid reasons!) – but the fact is that finally, he did make it.

And we are thankful to him for that.

This song is about waiting for a long time for somebody to arrive. And then welcoming that person when he/she does finally arrive.

It is “aaiye aapka intezaar thha” from Vijay Path (1994). A “recent” song by the standards of this blog. I remember it being fairly popular in its time. It is pleasant enough to listen to. I hope readers enjoy it.

In January 2012, I travelled from Nagpur to Bangalore by the same route, and who knows may be by the same train. In our whatsapp group, I had mentioned that I then did not inform Raja about my visit to Bangalore. 🙂

Atul ji, this issue was also discussed and may be next time you would see our pics around your place and later the information that we were there in your city 🙂
So, all ‘Atulites’ are requested to at least inform the other or have a talk on phone whenever we happen to visit a place of each others.

Raja ji,

I could not quite understand the “situation”.
Anyway, this film had quite a few good songs (This is the first time I am commenting on “new” songs I suppose.)

This particular duet is too good especially the humming by Alka Yagnik.

It may not fit the bill for the “situation” but a good song for repeated listening.

Atul ji,

The movie makes its debut ( Tabu won the filmfare award for best female debut for this film ) I suppose, but is not reflecting on “List of songs-moviewise page”. Please check.

Avinash ji,
It’s a very popular song from Jaal (1952). I had not even bothered to check if its posted or not as I was 100% sure that it was on the blog.
Here it is; picturised on the hugely talented Geeta Bali.

Lata-Sahir-SDB. What else to write.

Excellent article! Enjoyed reading it tremendously. Brought back memories of Nagpur and Bengaluru. Now we know where Atulbhai, Avinashbhai and Madam Peevisie’s Mom reside! Bengaluru traffic is real bad these days. Some roads also! Bengaluru, like all other major Indian cities, has changed so much over the years. But what was outstanding in the description was the camaraderie, and the sheer delight of meeting!
