A tribute to the longest running bollywood film – DDLJ


Yesterday marked the completion of an era. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ) which is marked as the longest running film ended its winning streak. Maratha mandir (The theatre) finally pulled down the posters of the film leaving behind the fans berserk. But, what matters is – the movie still continues to relate with everyone’s personal love story in numerous ways, touching the hearts of an individual.The love tricks adopted by Sharukh khan got copied – both in real as well as reel life. People started to speak the language of the DDLJ film. The dialogues became part of regular seaking. And, that’s why in order to give tribute to this particular love saga I prepared content-images that have original hindi dialogues (marked in green), its English translation (marked in pink) and its daily use (marked in black).

Hope you enjoy and have a cheerful smile at the end of this Hetu.













Hetu’s, let’s spread happiness through love!!!

P.S: The Hetu turned out to be bit long! Nevertheless please take 7 min read from your busy schedule.

Quick Referrals:

*Bhang: prepared from the leaves and flowers (buds) of the female cannabis plant

*Maha Shivaratri: a Hindu festival celebrated annually in reverence of the god Shiva.

*Shiva: a popular Hindu deity

*Daksha: king, son of Lord Brahma

*Sati: Daughter of Daksha

*Parvati: Wife of Lord Shiva, Hindu Goddess

Today is Maha Shivratri. May lord Shiva bless us with success, joy and hope we always move towards spreading happiness.

And yes, Happy St. Valentine’s. Apologies for not wishing Hetu’s on 14th Feb

Yes, I know it’s late, but I was finding out the reason for something. I observed, I thought and then, I slept. Lately, I found what I actually wanted to – while having a cup of tea with Dad, yesterday.

The sun rays perfectly lighted the outdoors of our gallery making it shine like pearls in the beautiful ocean. Dad called out mother for the morning tea but mom was running short with her schedule of visiting the temple. Today she even had the reason since it was Maha Shivratri. Dad called mom but saw me at the gallery. He was busy with the world’s perfect combination – tea and the newspaper. Suddenly, I broke his link by shouting, “Hey Dad whatsup! We would rather have bhang over this tea, today!”

Dad just smiled and replied, “My bond with tea is same as Lord Shiva’s bond with bhang!”

“Okay!” I replied in dilemma. (my 1st dilemma of the day!)

“So Dad! How did you spend your Valentine which was 3 days back? Did you take mom for a dinner? A movie? A long ride?” I inquired because I wanted to know the so called “generation gap”.

Dad gazed. I got afraid. I thought “Did I just step into their personal matter?” (my 2nd dilemma of the day!)

“We had a morning tea, as you are having with me now! We visited to your nana’s house. Then, she cooked jeera rice and dal fry. At evening we went to the café. Had cappuccino and later went for a new Amitabh Bachchan’s movie.”

“Oh! You almost did the same as you do during regulars!”

“What do you mean?” 😀

He asked this in little shyness and bit loud. May be he had taken my words to the tripleX level 😉

I went in dilemma (my 3rd dilemma of the day!)

“So, how was your valentine, son?”

“I proposed the girl. Veronica! You remember? She said yes with a kiss and then we were together which didn’t turned to be………..forever!” 😦

Dad couldn’t control the laugh and asked the reason. I was blank. Didn’t know what to reply and How to reply! I and veronica broke up within 72 hours of my proposal, or may be within 4318 minutes of our first kiss.

I just made a sad face. Oh! Wait. I didn’t make. I was sad already, ACTUALLY!

After a minute of silence Dad did speak out something! May be this “something” was the reason for something that I was finding on Valentines.

“Look Son! Today’s love is not love but a mere attraction. You are having a question ‘how’? But wait, let me finish. I used to stay in hostel which was situated 3 houses away from your nana’s home. Being unmarried I looked at your mother every single day. We made eye-to-eye contacts. Exchanged smiles. Well, I did smile at her and she smiled in return. Was it for me? I didn’t know then, but surely it was for me. Her hairs used to be messy, while her glow equally glittering & pleasant. Every time I saw her, she would be carrying some or the other thing in her hands. Really!!! It was a treat in watching her. Wished I become carry bag, then. Did she use to carry things or did she carry charm within? I’m yet to figure this out! As moon is to sky, charm is to her beauty. Her regular work made her toned, fair and healthy. It was 14th Feb 1987. She came out of her house for buying vegetables. I was hiding behind the trifoliate bel tree and seeing her out of the house I rushed to her; hold her hand and….And I proposed. Watch out! I didn’t even knew her name. But there was something which was invisible – but got clicked. There was something which was not imagined – but was done. There was something which was never meant – but got accomplished. Seeing my proposal your mom left away with a smile, but without giving the answer. And, the next day your nana called me home. We had a talk, I shared my feelings, family to your mom’s family and finally things turned out positive and we got married”.

I mean what the fuccccc…..kkkkkk. In today’s world if I propose a girl directly without even knowing her name I will be dead shit! “Name” comes later on to the list, but without knowing her “track” record if I directly propose her, then I will have myself cut into pieces, just like cake – the next day. (You better know which “track” I’m talking about 😉 ) It became little hard to digest the situation of a boy, proposing to a girl – without even knowing her name! May be my father was having bhang instead of tea in the early morning!

I was in dilemma (my 4th dilemma of the day!)

To clear the air Dad further added, –

“That ‘something’ is TRUST.


Noun: Firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something.
“Relations have to be built on trust”

It was my trust in love – “your mother”, that she understood my feelings which I showed to her while making eye-to-eye contacts. It was my trust in love that I got guts to propose her without hesitation. Today by the time boy acquire guts to propose, girl already might have got mingled with some other. How can you wish to have a relationship if you are not even able to show it to the one – who is part of your relationship? Just as the “law of energy”, love can neither be created nor be destroyed, it can only be transferred from one form to another. During the time of propose my love got transferred in hers and hers in mine. Thus, we became one, through this transformation…and the proposal played a major role. Your world, Errr…..not all…but…Ahhh….don’t understand the importance of proposal. For you ‘proposal’ is boy – girl saying I love you to each other, a kiss, clubbing and a perfect end to bedroom. So, how can you expect a relation to survive which already got ended before the commitments?”

I got stunned. Now I was out of one dilemma but entered the new one. (My 5th dilemma of the day!)

I had a question: Whether this type of relations are possible today? Whether this type of relations had been before?

My Dad knew that I had a question to ask. So he asked me what I was thinking about. I just said, “Is it….?” And stopped in the middle. As I didn’t know what exactly to ask!

He replied after seeing my facial expressions –

“Lord Shiva is known as Mahadev – God of God’s. Prajapati Daksha’s daughter Sati rose in love with Mahadev. But Daksha was against the marriage. He found Shiva as an enemy. He insulted, cursed and did the worst of the worst against Shiva. But, Shiva calmly responded with deeds, harmony and best of the best thoughts on survival towards love. Because, he know Sati is going to marry him and will overcome the hurdles & obstacles that lie between them. It happened. After marriage, fights and clashes happened but it’s a whole different story. Later, Sati took birth as Parvati and entered the world. Yes! It was Reincarnation of Sati. Shiva knew that she is Sati. Parvati realized that Shiva is her husband. They both again got married today with all the rituals. And that’s why your favourite Author Amish Tripathi describes Lord Shiva as “Charismatic Lover!” One more thing! On the day of Maha Shivratri, Shiva consumed poison to save the world. He knew it was not going to harm him. His strength and powers would arrest the poison to the throat itself, restricting it from entering into the body completely. And that’s the reason Shiva is known as ‘The blue throated’. By the way you got enough dose of mythology today, my son! Now you might get the real meaning of the relations, the bonds, and the togetherness. And, you might even know the reason of why knowing nothing earns success than in knowing the complete biography of a partner in relationships. You might even know the lacking point”

Dad punched me right. “The lacking point”. I realized trust plays a vital role in a relationship. It was trust of my dad on his love, that my mom knew he loved her. It was trust of my dad towards mom, that she too loved him. It was trust of my mom on his love that it will reach to its desired destination. It was trust of my mom towards dad, that he would propose her one day. Mythological facts on trust towards “love” and “oneself” do hold true in today’s world. May be, that’s why we need to follow, talk, share and learn from Gods.

So, Hetu’s it was my thought on how I could blend love with spirituality. Beg your pardon if it hurt the sentiments and beliefs. I wrote with one aim – “love truly and, trust wisely”

Hope this month of love and the coming months, always shower joy and happiness on mankind. Amin!

Letters of Love – 2

letter2Hi Dumboo,

Some of the best thoughts should get written over on the paper. Today, what I will mention through this will leave you sailing on the ocean of happy hope! Feeling rhapsodized as it’s my first attempt in 7 years to show love in the form of a letter.

I know you love pasta and you know I love noodles. I know you love chocolates and you know I love ice cream. I know you love mountains and you know I love beaches. But, most importantly what matters is I know you love me and you know I love you.

I was wondering about that particular ingredient which is making our relationship stronger, spicier and smoother with years passing by. Suddenly, my mind got stuck on one particular feeling called PASSION! And, I started recognizing how we are passionately taking our life to the next level!

Your desire for long drives and me wanting you to hold me tightly during those rides. That’s called Passion! Your biting on my ear as a gesture of hot romance and me craving for the lips of yours. That’s called Passion. You call me immediately after your office hours and I reach the spot – leaving my work half done only for to drop you at home is called Passion. However, I come because you hold me tight from behind while having the ride. I could sense you completely, deeply. 😉

So, I guess it’s the passion that’s making our relation more interesting by the years passing by. You are turning out to be more and more beautiful as the minutes pass by. Seriously saying, I love your thin flamingo neck the most. I love to hold it for hours. I enjoy being with you, hugging you tightly and planting kisses all over – the best I can. We are really growing passionately. Thankyou my love for supporting, understanding and respecting me.


I have one complain to make!

We fight. But I take the first step…say sorry and then we make out! No, I’m not saying that we shouldn’t fight. We should. Fights are important part of relationship. Fights make relationship livelier. But my problem lies in my “sorry part”. While I will be busy saying you sorry, holding your hand and lovingly pushing you towards me; you do hug me – as passionately as you use to hug me past 7 years. But, I could see tears rolling down your eyes and lips apologizing, when you make the first eye-to-eye contact. Not letting you cry more, I just give you a sweet smooch. Because I want you to stop dropping pearl like tears from your lovely-wibly-bibly big dark brown eyes. I have problem with that tears. Why you cry? Is it a form of regression? If yes, then please stop regretting because as I mentioned before Fights are parts of relationship.

You are hyper, I’m cool that’s why we are a perfect combo of “sweet & spice!” Understand this my Dumboo! I respect your anger, your short-tempered nature, and your hyper-sensitive activities – the same way you understand mine cool, calm and collected behavior. So, I want your promise on promise day that you will not change….you will fight, you will make love, you will be doing what you feel like; but will never regret in our relationship.

P.S: Please, Don’t start crying after reading this. I feel sad when I see you cry and if you cry after reading this – I will go mad since it would be “I” making you cry!

Love you to the core. I’m fine. Company conference will get over by tomorrow. We will be together on bed within 2 minutes of my reach at home. Or say any place of your choice!!! 😛

I know you will be killing me for writing this, but that’s called PASSION.

Always yours,

It’s called LOVE!

Hi Hetu’s,

What is love?


Saying some one “I love you” requires guts to showcase your feeling. But, the actual test of love starts once you are in love. You need to develop the quality (criteria) of love within you. And it’s these qualities; that defines love. I witnessed one such quality called “Compatibility” when I saw a couple celebrating their 54th wedding Anniversary!

dcghdfHi Fattipoo,

Call it my love for you or my urge for getting up locked again!

Judge me for my decency towards you or for my rudeness with others!
