Happy Birthday Pankaj

Pankaj, the Lotus, which originates from mud, but emerges so beautifully. The person who is facing lots of issues, living alone in a country far away from his hometown, always try to cheer up other people through his sense of humour, provides lots of information regarding so many subjects by retweeting some articles, does households chores alone and still creats beautiful art through his observations in Cinema and write beautiful blog posts! Yes, that person is you. The shining & glitering forever filmy Bollywood Keeda!

Sometimes I think that I'm entering to your zone where I should not, but then I ask you some of the things and you answer them in such a humble way, that I feel like I know you since long time. You're the kind of the person I always wanted to meet, with whom I can discuss small details of Cinema, sometimes Literature and share life issues, too. And I've got you, I'm not feeling bad that you're just the virtual friend, and I haven't met you personally yet, or we've not talked over the phone, those are the things I even forget sometimes, I've got you through Google, when I was finding blog posts about 'Tamasha' and I am really happy that after that point our friendship grew. I don't know you consider me as a friend or not, (I guess you do, because you've given me solace in many things through your replies whenever I've shared something with you.) but I don't even care about such things that this is the defination of a friendship and this is not. I hope I will able to meet you personally someday for sure, that's it. 

Sometimes I feel to ask for your WhatsApp number, I feel to ask you if you're using that App or not, but then I don't, because I also know that I'm entering a zone which I should not, the zone after which expectations appears and then any friendship somehow fades eventually, so I want to keep this distance for at least, so Twitter is fine for now at least! (We'll think if things work in our friendship.) When I came into contact of yours, I immediately started to read your blog posts, I was taken aback by some of the things you noticed in some films and I thought this is the person I want to be in touch and I contacted you on Twitter. Firstly I was confused that how would I address you, generally I don't like the words 'Bhaiya' or 'Bro' or other addressings, just because the person is elder than you. I wanted to respect you without saying these words and I decided I'll just call you by your name like you're my friend, because age is just a number for me! I was not sure that how would you take my questions about Cinema or other things I asked about your life, but you were replying by your heart without judging me and I knew that this is the person with whom I can talk forever, this is the person who can become your penfriend, the person who can share some common interests and my heart filled with immense joy. 

You keep saying that you've not helped me much, but just I know that how much you've inspired me that I can write whatever I feel, I can do it for myself. You've given me much hope whenever I've asked you something and guided me as much as you can. Although you don't know Gujarati, you read my posts with the help of Google Translation is a very big thing for me, you inspire me a lot by doing that. Sometimes there are days when I feel sad or low, on those days I used to listen my favourite songs or watch favourite films again and again, and in that list your blog has been added! Yes, since past 5-6 months when I feel bad vibes I just read your posts, which gives me happiness. Out of over 500 posts of yours, I guess I would have read some of the posts again and again and again... I read posts of 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', 'Queen', 'Dil Chahta Hai', 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' and much more lots of times repeatedly. I love how you connect things to films, and notice nuance in them. I love the way you put screenshots, it has taught me too that yes I can show things with subtitles so clearly. You're the person with whom I can say this was the thing I noticed, and you can reply that you have noticed that too. I like how you've written 'Lootera' posts, 'Masaan', 'Taal', 'Bajirao Mastani', 'Tamasha' and how could I forget 'Dil Chahta Hai'! I am taken aback that how have you noticed things in Delhi 6's Dil Gira Dafatan, Dil Se Title Song, Dil Se's Satrangi Re, Staircase scenes in Tamasha, Weaving Love- motif in the films of SLB, and much more! I love that you also write on intense and meaningful films as well as on light films too. Some of the posts I've not read as I've not seen those films. I've lots of things to say but I don't know why I feel the conversations with you are like dreams, dreams that I should not tell to anybody! Just keep in mind what I told you about your dreams, you can fulfill them, I hope you'll soon! Thanks again for inspiring me for my dreams! Don't be sad, enjoy much, do what you like and don't forget that we can fly! Posting this photo of yours at Brooklyn Bridge because I want to indicate that smile should be on your face forever and also posting photo from your favourite film hereby, and trying to write dialogues at the end of the post as you do! Much happiness, lots and lots of wishes, cheers to life and dreams...!
