WHY I like Devdas !?

Posted by Rojit on February 29, 2012

                                  Who doesn’t wish to have a great love story? Whenever you’ve been given a chance to narrate your own story, how awesome you’ll feel when people get glued to, just by the mere introduction of the girl you love. Dramatically, it should be like the ever-too-fast-emotional girls will say,” Awwww…cho chweet!” The story, as it moves on, shall contain romantic moments (actually plenty), little sacrifices, goosebump instances, funny parts, sensual rendezvous (ahm ahm) and most importantly some petty fights coz a wise man once put, ”Lovers’ quarrel is a renewal of new love!”

Your story may not be like the DDLJ or KKHH or some Korean movies stuff, what really matters at the end of the day is: The part of your own life which you spent with this wonderful girl…was it worth it? Were you fully drunk with happiness being with her? If ever given a chance, would you like to relive those moments?! If yes, congrats you have just added another fan who envies you like hell! 

I too wish to have a love story, a great one which I’ll feel no shame at all narrating to my kids and grandkids and friends on any occasion (with some added masala of course). But the love story I really aspire to have, is that of Devdas! Ya ya..a guy deeply in love with his neighbour, loved her like anything, circumstances leading to break-up and guy finally consuming his life with liquor. But, why Devdas? Well, that’s my blog post for today!

The reasons for anyone to try emulating a love story very close to Devdas, may be plenty but mine is simple as it can get. I watched Devdas movie (Shah Rukh Khan starrer) on my desktop PC in 2001. It was the first movie actually on my late PC. And since then, I’ve been meaning/wanting to have the persona of Mr. Devdas in that movie…talk like him(I’m not bragging if I say I memorized few of his dialogues 😀 ) and of course find a girl like ‘Paaro’ who would love me like anything. My dream continues till that part when Devdas broke up with childhood sweetheart Paaro, met drunkard Chunni Baabu and started drinking for the very first time. There…that’s the part I really want t experience!! I really want to be in that situation: breaking up with I-don’t-know-how-many-years of girlfriend-boyfriend with someone who loves you like anything (remember that ‘diyaa’ Paaro never lets it put out) and then break up owing to some unavoidable painful circumstances and finally holding that glass symbolising elixir of hope. At this point of time when everything seems to go wrong – universe conspiring against me, the favourite songs going sour and hurtful wishes to get my memory formatted. Yup at this point of time, apart from the pain I ‘might’ be suffering, I wanna know that urge to make the best of friends with say, Old Monk.  And after sipping in few pegs, I really want to feel that ’emotions’ of all my brothers who had gone through that stage and then say for myself whether it’s really the break-ups/heart aches that made the wine/rum/vodka/whisky tastier. Just a far fletched weird dream though…!

I think, for a sadist like me, I’ll never go through such a stage but then again, let’s hope not!

Dear Friend

Posted by Rojit on February 25, 2012

When the glaring heat becomes too unbearable,

Remember that there is always a cool friend.!


When the violent winds become too ferocious,

Remember there is a friend, firm for you.!


When you are too thirsty in the midst of a desert,

Remember there is a friend who’ll be there with a Pepsi!


When you lose your way in the forest,

Remember to follow your friend who knows where the brook is.!


When you feel betrayed in the ocean of life,

Remember there is a friend showing you the sense towards an island!


When you think of your own life like hell,

Remember there is a friend who will tag you along in heaven!


But when you think your life is just fine with all smiles and success by your side,

Remember there is always a very very ‘happy’ friend..!

I’ll miss my COLLEGE LIFE

Posted by Rojit on February 4, 2012

Saturday,  4th Feb, 2012 will always be remembered in a way I thought would never cross my life. College life finally ends its race and so does the journey of sitting in a class! It’s my last day of being a student sitting in a class. How emotional that is..right?! Screw it…I’m actually very happy. This thing called ‘education’ for almost my entire life till now has consumed many a thing and most important of all is the yen to study! I’ll be better off now..that’s the least i guess.  Yet, I’ll always have something that wil prick my mind and heart whenever this thought of ending class days comes to my mind. I’ll certainly miss many a thing and here I’m with yet another list of stuffs I’ll surely miss.

1. We have always been taught to be ethical but never  could be too ethical to give proxy for attendance of a friend.

2.Paying more than 5L as tuition fees, we certainly can afford a pen, but shall always find it meaningful to borrow from a friend. (I guess I lost more than 15 pens..but that’s OK ! 😀 )

3. The coffee or the five-rupee biscuits taste far better when a friend treats you.

4. The weekend nights would have been so dull had there been no party at the hostel.

5. The cigarette would be just another thing killing these lungs if it wasn’t shared with a friend.

6. The sms sent would be forgotten long way back had it not been sent during the class hours under  professors’ noses.

7. The birthdays celebrated in last two years would go missing in the memory lane had there been no ‘expected’ surprises.

8. The grades the college gave will be lost in time but will always remember the grades down due to attendance shortage.

9. There is no place like class to doze off and one is missing something important in life had he not done ever this before.

10. Studying in FORE SCHOOL of MANAGEMENT, yet there is no place better than IIFT dhaba to have some snacks. Will miss it dearly of all. And yup Ranbir Kapoor once visited this place as well for his promotion for ROCKSTAR!! 🙂

11. Last but not the least, there is no place like college where you make the best of best friends for life and the simple fact is that that there is gonna be a time when only facebook could connect us, but friends will always be most cherished and remembered!

As a friend of mine puts it, lemme end this post with this : “We part to meet and we meet to part !”

Has-ta-la-vis-ta dear friends 🙂
