Most people think that life is like a limited overs cricket match where one has just one innings which ends when one retires from his job. But in reality one still has a long enough life ahead of him/ her. Instead of retiring, one can re-tire one’s wheels, take a fresh guard and begin a new innings, which may be quite glorious and memorable.

Internet became available to public in 1995, and it became available to Indian public in 1996. I became exposed to it in 1997 and I began to have internet connection at home from 1998 onwards.

Development of internet took place rapidly and internet forums came into existence soon. I was a cricket enthusiast and I was looking forward to join a cricket forum. I could not find an Indian cricket forum of my liking. There were cricket forums populated by loud, jingoist and abusive ignorants but those sites were not my cup of tea. I finally settled for a Pakistani cricket forum called pakcricbuzz (by now defunct). This was quite a sensible cricket forum and it had some Indians too in it. One Indian called Saurabh was one of its moderators. This happened in the second half of 2004.

Folks who are avid browsers of the internet in search of Hindi film songs and related information must be very familiar with another blog ‘Songs Of Yore’ (http://www.songsofyore.com/). Today, I am writing to introduce AK ji, the personality, who is the driving force behind this blog that is famous in the digital world, for its content and references. Last month, on 7th June, his blog ‘SoY’ celebrated its fourth anniversary. On the occasion, the lead post starts with the following paragraph.

When Atul ji added this blog on facebook, a small change happened to the blog page too. In the right hand column, there appeared a matrix of 15 tiny portraits, representing some of the newer persons who are following the blog on the facebook. This is a good place to see some old friends and even sometimes new and familiar faces. And yes, occasionally I have espied even celebrity names as I run my mouse over these images.

Now this gets cosmopolitically interesting. She is from a Keralite family that settled in Mumbai about a century ago; herself she is born and brought up in Mumbai, got married to a gentleman from Tamilnadu (I think he won’t mind if we call him Peevesie’s Dad), and currently settled in Bangalore. (Maybe she can head a movement for national integration). Interestingly, today she is back in her hometown – Cochin, as this write up gets published. But that is just for a short weekend vacation, she assures me.

Sadanand Kamath, a pillar of this blog is one of the seniormost regulars of this blog. His introduction in his blog makes for an impressive reading. It mentions:

Post graduate in Monetary Economics, worked in Reserve Bank of India and thereafter with a major Bond House until retirement on August 31, 2006. Did consultancy work in the area of financial markets with a major industrial house which I gave up in June 2009 to devote more time to my family, travelling and trekking.

Mr Sadanand Kamath appears to have discovered the blog in july 2011. He began to comment in the blog from that month onwards. He first sent me a song lyrics on 8 october 2011 for a song of “Doraaha” (1952) with the request that it may be used on 25 oct 2011, which was Sahir Ludhianvi’s anniversary.

When I was pointed into the right direction, i.e. JK Rowling and Harry Potter, then the mystery dissolved away, and the nickname ‘Peevesie’ came out in a better light. And after spending maybe an hour with her, the significance of the nickname also eased itself into my mind. In the Harry Potter series, Peeves is a poltergeist at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, since c. 993. Fond of mischief and chaos, he is known as the spirit of chaos around the school. And so, picking up from her favorite series of teenage adventures, the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself. Hmmm. . . is it that the daughter of Peevesie’s Mom selected this nickname for herself and was then known as Peevesie, or is it that she picked this nickname and then her mom came to be known as Peevesie’s Mom – it is getting a little mixed up in the order in which the things may have happened.

Introducing Shekhar Gupta – one of the quieter albeit active voices on the blog. Over the past two years, I have been in email communication with him, on various topics related to film music and the blog. He comes across as an unpretentious and humble personality, that belies his stature and accomplishments. In recent weeks, when I sent him an email request to get some personal information from him, his response started with such statements of humbleness and gratefulness, in a very friendly tone.
