Movie Review’s – Angrezi Medium

Since I watched it’s trailer few months back and the Previous Movie Hindi Medium, Its easy to say that I was looking forward to watch it as it hits the theatre but as the lockdown happened and the movie plans blew up to pieces.

But thanks to Hotstar or Disney + Hotstar for releasing the movie on an OTT Platform in a very short span of time of hitting the theatres which is good for the movie and the people waiting to watch the movie, I think it is for the First time for Bollywood movie of this magnitude.

Starcast is Good With Irfaan Khan in role of the Father & Radhika Madan in the role of the Daughter. Mainly movie revolves around these 2 characters and I must say that both of them has done total justification with their roles.

Kareena Kapoor Khan on the other hand had a very little screen time but definitly played pivotal role in the movie. I feel on the other hand Dimpal kaparia had more screen time and more interesting role then Kareena Kapoor.

The other mentionable Supporting actors were Deepak Doberial who played Irfan’s Sidekick Gopi & Ranveer shorey and Pankaj Kapoor for displaying his acting with such a flair in just 3 minutes of the screen time.

Storyline wise the movie was on point without any lags and screenplay & direction was also noteworthy and appreciable.

The movie had 4 songs which was okay as there was not much room for them in the storyline but they blended well and are good to listen. Song “Kudi Nu Nachan De” is sure to get you to listen again and dance as the beats and lyrics were just so good.

Do watch it people if haven’t watched as of now. Surely a good time spend

Quarantine Time Video Fun

As we know the Lockdown has been extented by 15 days from most of the state governments. Although it is the right step in ensuring the safety of the masses… We common janta has lot to think for in terms of passing the time as I am pretty sure the pending backlog has been finished of most of the people, so now question arises how to do a proper utilization of the time.

I have a serious case of missing my friends or as my shrink says Anthrophobia… So I just cant stay away from my friends, cousins & even my Staff Members… So today while I was on a video con-call with best of my buddies I thought of sharing my experience with you…

Video Calling Apps like WhatsApp, Zoom, Google Duo etc are a boon to people like us who are not able to travel in this lockdown are in constant touch with friends and work people. So I am surely hooked to it as it definitely helping in keeping sane & connected in these tough times.

Delhi, Jaipur, Ajmer, Ahmedabad, jodhpur coming together to fight these tough times… braving together and being tenacious…

Stay Indoors, Stay Safe, Stay Happy

Being Busy… Trying to stay Sane

As we know that whole of India is in lockdown (No thanks to COVID19) we all need to stay sane in this tiering time. We all had been trying to stay sane in these troubled times so was just wanting to share with you the ways i had been coping up day to day and what some of my friends are doing to hold up.

Thanks to Netflix, Hotstar & Amazon prime all the entertainment things are taken care of some super series and movies are to be watched in these times Money Heist on Netflix is one promising to watch for, Special Ops on hotstar is a good home grown limited series i watched.

Please don’t watch too much of NEWS on TV Channels as in my point of view it gives less information and more tension to us. Day and Night speaking about CORONA is also not good. I myself had Psyological corona for a few days because of this news. Seriously guys it gives me the creeps watching COVID related news whole day so i skip it as much possible.

As for self learning and knowledge increase i had few of the pending books which was pending i am on verge of completing 3 of them. Seriously people it is the best way of passing time and increasing your knowledge at the same time. If you are light on reading material and cant shop for new books there are plenty of them available on kindle or search online i am pretty sure you can find it there.

One thing that is most important is spending time with family as most of us are too busy in our daily routine life that it gets hampered. Play board games, watch some Movie together, talk to each other, for me and my family regular SEQUENCE time & Ramayan are a daily must. And don’t forget having meals together it is a must. If you have pets like me then do invest time in training & nurturing them.

The thing that is keeping me most happy or sane is my Gaming. Regular night PUBG session or online Monopoly with friends it gives certain happiness and satisfaction of the day.

So people stay busy, keep a positive mindset and come out of this lockdown with some new skill, hobby, learning.

Quarantine Fun

I know the heading is no fun in itself but sometimes we play the cards we have been dealt with (No Thanks To Coronavirus) and that only what happened with me.

I got a whatsapp message from my friend for live round of housie otherwise know as tambola or Indian version on Bingo.

So I transferred Rs. 100 for 1 ticket via paytm. And as the payment got confirmed i got a whatsapp of my ticket and I joined a room where the whole game was about to go down.

After the normal chatter in the group we came down to the serious thing actual housie.
The numbers started popping up in the group and you have to crosscheck on ur cards as the usual game goes.

By the end of night i manage to be a winner and won Rs. 200, Which was paytm transferred within minutes.

Although keeping money aside the fun was real good and it was a well 1 hour spent in this time of lockdown.

I must say kudos to the lovely couple Ravi Bhai & Smita Bhabi for pulling it off so effortlessly and with such flair.

Thank you Smita bhabi for taking this initiative and getting us something to do in the very tiring times… looking forward for more

Guys & Girls some kind of activity is necessary to keep brains & body active in these lockdown times. And make sure more involvement of people is there but under the guidelines of our Dear Mr. PM & Social Distancing… Technology is so helpful for all these interactions with people.

Stay Indoors, Stay Safe People

Quarantine Life preparedness

So Our dearest Prime Minister Sir Sh. Narendra Modi as expected by few of my intelligent friends has imposed a 21 day countrywide lockdown in order to fight N-Cov19.

And with this we understood that shit is bad and about to turn real ugly as it is happening in Italy etc (For which by the way we are 0% ready). So we took stock of medicines in the house (As its the most important thing in my house) and then the food stuff to sustain these 21 days (in which i still have a doubt that it will get over in 21 days).

So as today was day 1 and even newspapers are discontinued from today which created a sense of boredom in my house. and i am sure in your houses as well.

The main thing in this LOCKDOWN will be keeping our routines alive and engaging the mind with some activity to pass time… as I experienced it first hand it is very easy to get bored as the whole atmosphere is giving a vibe that the time had stopped somehow.

So i to have a ton of activities planned for next few days, ton of books to finish, lot of movies & series to watch and ya most importantly lot of friends & family to catch up with…

Try to do Facetime, whatsapp video calls or anything as much possible to distract from this boredom and recharge for next few hours… trust me this works like a dream….

Stay Indoors Stay Healthy

Corona Janta Curfew Day

Our dearest Prime Minister Sir requested the whole nation to do a self curfew of 14 hours in order to fight this panic of our lives corona virus. As it was on a Sunday so it wouldn’t have created much of a mess in routine life.

Brilliant decision sir, lot of scientific logic behind it as well for the prevention and to stop further spreading it. But as this was going on Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Sir Sh. Ashok Gehlot Ji gave an order of total lockdown till 31.3.2020

Now the tension started in terms of work, life imbalance, and few big questions came to my mind

  1. How will daily wages workers go on with their lives
  2. How will business owners pay salaries
  3. How will business owners close the year as we are on brink of financial year end.
  4. What about the whole economic cycle of our state. how we will cope with it…???

only two answers comes to my mind

  1. Only Time will Tell
  2. This too shall pass

This too shall pass but what about the cost…???

sometimes somethings are best left on God to decide and show the way.

We should help the government by doing our end of the deal…

Stay indoors & Stay healthy

Confidence – Why it is fickle as a fiddle

Sometimes some instances do happen where you lose your confidence in certain things and as lots of people & books say it effects your work, life, friendships etc.

For some people confidence comes to them naturally & for some who need any life instances which gives it as well.

So a live example which happened with me only in January 2017 as my doctor has lifted off bedrest on me and said now you are ok to travel and start getting back to your daily life.
So i was back to office where i found no problem talking to anyone as i knew everythem and then had been visiting me regurarly as well.

But the major challange i got was when i had to go and attend a merriage function in my hometown Ajmer. I was scared of meeting people and talking to them even, they are those people who are our family friends and we know them from last so many years and as i was out of house after a long bedrest so everyone also wanted to meet me and talk to me.
I was shit scared and was not able to speak anything except ha-ji na-ji hello thank you.

That day i realised confidence is a must in life even for any basic function like talking to someone or negotiating in business or any business meeting.

Confidence cant be bought it has to be developed from one self from within.
A few tips on what i had done
1. Start Small
2. Meet People in a small group.
3. Prepare beforehand for any meeting.
4. Talk to your friends, family as much as you can

Although it took me a week’s time to regain confidence but yes i am trying it to make it a permanent part of my brain.
It was because of great help of My Family, My Friends & My Staff the confidence is back for good…!!!

A Rock Concert in Ajmer

Last sunday a charity rock concert was organized by Rotary Club Ajmer Midtown to raise funds for their upcoming Project at Satellite Hospital in Adarsh Nagar, Ajmer.
It was a good event by Saar Rock band and there was one more singer named Sheena.

The Band and Singer played some real some real nice tunes and even for a minute it didn’t felt boring. Specially the old songs were the most enjoyable.

The venue was Kangra Amphitheater at Mayo College Ajmer. Which is a fabulous backdrop for these kinds of event. And I personally like this place because wheelchair is so easily accessible to all the main areas of it. Finally on new constructions people are thinking about accessibility for all.

The management of the event was taken care by Rotary Club Members only and I personally don’t think they could have done any better job then this. It was flawless, Period

So keeping it short i will give my best wishes to Rotary Club for their Hospital Project and looking forward for more such kind of events in Ajmer sometime in future…

Felt like Santa Clause

We at Round table India’s Ajmer Chapter Ajmer Round Table’s Members went over to our adopted school at Village Aakhri in Ajmer do Donate furniture.
This Furniture was promised by us at the time of inauguration of the new building.
Sometimes when it is written by the gods will, then only it will happen so it happened to be a day before christmas.

We were trying to get this furniture a month back but due to some availabelity issue with the vendor & then some logistical issue, so all in all it get delayed.

So today the day finally came and our Team consisting our Tablers Bhupesh, Nitin, Tarun, Amrit, Nikket, Prashant, Karan & yours truly ME Sorabh Gehlot reached today at 11 AM to the school.

I seriously can’t describe the happiness in the kids eyes seeing the furniture and they thanked us in their own good way.
School & Kids prepared some Plays, Dances & Poems.
Kids even prepared Thank You cards For us (Check them in the pictures)

So after the cultural function we were talking to kids & Principal Maam about their thoughts for the school and furniture etc. The kids are so happy seeing their school now and they promised us that they will keep furniture maintained.
The Principal Maam informed us that after building renovation the school strength has increased and day attendance percentage has also gone up. Thats the real impact of Round Table India.

So in all Kids were super happy, and seeing their happiness we were happy… an effort well put…

My First Travel For Tabling

So as many of you know i am part of a wonderful organisation called Round Table International whose India Chapter is called as Round Table India.

So after my long bedrest (why, when, what later) it was my first travel to Delhi for a family holiday. As it was a holiday I was free and as told about my friends for the power of tabling in terms of cooperation & friendship i thought why not give it a try and meet few Fellow Tablers from Delhi so i got few numbers from my table friends here and started calling…

One lead to other and after 2 calls i got a call from Area Chairman of that year, heyy bro we all are going to Agra for our Area AGM why don’t you also join us it will be great fun and you can meet the whole area in one shot, Oh and ya Mika is coming to perform in our AGM’s party…

I was sold to this idea the instance i heard his name, so i asked him can i confirm you in 30 mins. he said bro no problem please take your time and do lemme know so i can tell the organizer’s for your proper arrangements and he connected me to one of the member of the organizing committee.

After 2 days of holidaying in Delhi with family i embarked alone for this journey with my driver bhaiya & Helper, The whole way i was just thinking of one thing “I dont know anyone there, wont i be bored” “Wont it look awkward” etc etc

But the moment i entered the hotel and went to the help desk to get a head way and introduce myself after that brothers started coming in to meet, chat laugh.. i was invited for sessions etc so all in all i had minimum 20 friends in 10 mins of time and it was not an outsider feel at all and superb fun filled next 3 days & memories of a lifetime.

Sometimes people ask me why Round Table, Isn’t it a waste of time…??? Definitely NO.
Right now i have so many friends in places or cities or countries i had not imagined. Where ever I go it is brotherhood everywhere and always…!!! And best part for me, Help is always less then a call away…
