कर्मठता (A short story in Hindi)

"रामलाल, मैं पिछले तीन दिनों से देख रहा हूँ, तुम बारिश में भी आकर गाड़ियाँ धोते पोंछते हो। बारिश में गाड़ी पोंछी या नहीं, किसने देखा है?"

"बाबू साहब, ये मेरा काम है। अगर बहाने ही बनाने है तो बारिश क्या और धूप क्या। कोई और देखे या ना देखे, मेरी अंतरात्मा देख रही होगी, मेरा ईश्वर देख रहा होगा। ऐसे में मैं अपने काम में कोताही कैसे बरत सकता हु?"

रामलाल की कर्मठता ने मुझे झकझोर के रख दिया जिसने अभी अभी ऑफिस फ़ोन करके बारिश के बहाने से आज की छुट्टी की थी।

Interstellar – The story behind the story!

I have to admit, when I came out of this movie, I was confused, and thinking hard to find a logical sense to the story. One thought which came to my mind was that my thinking ability is of 3 dimensions and that’s the reason I am not able to logically conclude this 5 dimension story. But few hours later, and few brainstorming sessions with myself, I came up with a somewhat logical explanation on what could have happened in the background, not shown to us, but may have leads to this story-line.

These timelines will lead to a situation where the movie would have started. Read on, to check what has happened in the actual timeline.

TnT – Taranath Tantrik – City of Sorrows

I read both part of Taranath Tantrik - City of Sorrow, and to summarize it, I can only say that I just can’t wait for the third installment. Brilliant story, keeps you gripped till the last page in both part. I will not discuss spoilers here. The story is about a Psychic Taranath Tantrik working with his friends Shankar, a CID office, Sneha, a TV journalist and  Vibhuti, a horror novelist, in an investigation, where someone is trying to change the City of Joy Kolkata into City of Sorrows. 
First part shows glimpse into Taranath’s past, and cut to present day for main story to develop. The second part again shows villain’s past, and then move to current day. So, the first one introduced TnT to us, and started chain of events which makes the story. Then second part introduced the villain to us, and the story progressed.  I liked this type of storytelling, which gives you a glimpse of main character’s past, and then jumps directly to the story.

भोर का तारा - कविता (Bhor Ka Tara, a poem)

भोर का तारा, प्रतिक है समाप्त होती रात्रि का।
आने वाली सुबह का, नए दिन की शुरुआत का।
जो लगभग समाप्त हो गया, उस अँधियारे युग का।
एक आशा भरी नयी शुरुआत, नए प्रारंभ का।
जीवन के आकाश पर जल्द ही बिखरने वाली नयी उम्मीदों का।
