Nukraee ghantiyaan si...

Been tagged by Ozman.

My oldest memory:

Being very very angry. It was a winter night in Delhi. My mother who was carrying me in her arms hit her head when somebody opened the window just as she got up from a chair. It was good thing perhaps that I did not have too many words on me those days.

10 years ago:

I was in Delhi with my life altering all around me.



My first thought today morning:

“Shit. I did not turn off that weekly prayer thingie”. See, for some reason the alarm clock in my phone does not work. I discovered instead something termed the ‘mobile prayer’. I found that a programmed prayer works just as well as a ordinary alarm tune. So my god of choice is Hanuman and the last time I needed it was apparently last Friday at 6. am.* My father who is always up at unearthly hours was, I think, a little intrigued.

.

You built a time capsule today what would it contain?

I thought about this one for a bit. A little induced panic and I was coming along just fine. My initial list included tiger DNA too. But see, ultimately (why baulk at words - deep down) I seem have a boringly Indian mentality when it comes to recording history. I don’t really believe that we ought to try.

But if I had to sneak past these principals and be tempted to freeze-preserve something, it would be the one thing that I am no end grateful has been preserved into my time in some form - The Upanishads. Whatever the laws of karma it would be a great pity, I think, to have to re-invent that particular wheel.

This year:

Has been somewhat unspectacular for me till now. But I hope I know better than to chafe at unspectacular these days.

14 years from now:

I have no idea. I hope my knee does not hurt.


I tag Floozieloo.


* I started to do this tag on Friday.

Don't tell me! tiger DNA, you too? And I considered and somehow didn't include the Vedanta. Some political correctness and a feeling ke agar isko include karenge to phir ye sab bhi to hai... Shakespeare, for instance. Then, these were oral heritages anyway... still, glad it's in your time capsule :)

Tot, what's 'nukraee'?

Satal! Don't tell me you don't remember the Nazm! The title was solely for your benefit.
Nukraee means 'of silver'.
I've been trying to find it online; no luck. :(
If you do remember tell me,it is Faiz ,no?

Illa kano, don't remember :-( - not even after you jiggled my memory.
You say it's from Waqt; don't even remember the movie.. just the earthquake and it's a blank after that - amnesia-like.
Nukraee sounds lovely, though.
