Paan Singh Tomar : A forgotten national hero


Paan Singh Tomar
Paan Singh Tomar was indeed a strange name for a hindi film to me when I first read about it in a newspaper few month back. The fact that I am a fan of Irrfan Khan since his Banegi Apni Baat days so it was obvious for me to watch this movie and as the name suggested I was sure I might have something very different to watch.

Story of an athlete of a world class, seven times national champion at Steeple Chase in 50s and 60s, a participant at 1958 Tokyo Asian Games and his journey as a “baaghi” as Irrfan Khan playing as Paan Singh Tomar repeats in the movie is the backdrop of the story. 

No doubt Paan Singh Tomar, the persona is the winner of the movie, a sportsman who faded with time and despite bringing laurels to the nation was forced to rise against the law. This movie can be listed as one of the best movie of Irrfan Khan and his natural acting has made Paan Singh Tomar alive on screen.

Hi Bebay!! Happy Birthday to you



Hi Bebay!!
Happy Birthday to you
This is your 6th birthday. No matter how far we remain but in this corner of the heart you are always remembered and missed.  These words are without any reasons and sometimes I can’t help myself imagine what’s going over in your small mind. The world is an illusion and we see only those things that we are told or we are always told (?), it depends upon how you look at it. You are too young to feel the weight of these small words and yet I am making you believe that in this core of my small heart there is a big place for you no matter people around you won’t let you feel it. It might take years to flip over this page of my blog (you will be surprise to read that this blog is for you, here you will get everything that I could not teach you) but when you do it, you shall have a different aura to greet you.
Love aye
Baba

Sushma Dahal from Rongli wins Sargam Sikkim

Sushma Dahal with Johny Rai
I first wrote about Sushma Dahal in 2009 and i said about her "She is the next big thing to happen in the music industry from Sikkim" in one of my blog post. I have seen her grow as a singer and i am happy to see her success. Sushma Dahal, a student from Chujachen SSS won the singing competition of Sargam Sikkim yesterday at Jorethang. 

From a small time school function singer to the winner of  " Pratibha Ko Khoj" some year back i had been associated with Sushma Dahal. To see her reach this stage i am very happy. Without doubt i would like to mention the names of three person Praveen Pradhan, Kushal Pradhan and Buren Gurung from Rongli for believing the talent of Sushma and supporting her in her earlier days. Well once more many many congratulation Sushma.
