मी भारतीय हवाई सेनेत लढाऊ वैमानिक होतो आणि भुजमध्ये दोन कार्यकाळ केले आहेत. तब्बल पाच वर्षं त्या भागात उड्डाण केल्यामुळे, मी माझ्या वायूसेना आणि कच्छमधील आनंदी आठवणींना उजाळा देण्यास उत्सुक होतो. पण हा चित्रपट बघून माझ्या डोळ्यात पाणी आलं. खरंच आलं. पण हसून हसून पाणी आलं, कारण निर्माते इतके गंभीर असूनही हा चित्रपट हास्यास्पद निघाला. … More भुज – न भूतो न भविष्यति!
“Haven’t you done the job yet?” Wife asked. “I’m trying…” I said, actually trying only to sound more confident than I felt. If you have done that job, and that too in one attempt, I salute you.

Among the many messages I received early morning on this Independence Day, the one shown above was very different – and left me deeply moved. And then there was another thing too. Since it was a holiday, I left home late, and on the way back after a leisurely morning walk, got stuck in traffic … More Deeply Moved

“Hello, Sir! How are you?” Asked the young partner from the CA’s office when I answered her call. What business does she have sounding so cheerful in July when hard earned cash has to be coughed up and Income Tax Return filed? But one has to be civil.
A throat problem resulted in the ENT specialist advising me ‘Voice Rest.’ So, I looked forward to spending my days silently, with a saintly smile on my face and feeling as pious as the Pope – like many great men, who have spoken about the power of silence. Look at the irony here – they … More I’ll Never Be A Great Man
