London. The greatest city

in the world.

For22 years, l've lived here

Every morning l take a walk

down this street

Every morning, the street asks me

my name...

Chaudhary Baldev Singh? Who are you?

Where are you from? Why are you here?

Do l have a reply? After half

a lifetime spent here...

this land still remains alien

to me; and l to it

No one here knows me. None except

these doves. Because they're like me

Neither do they belong to a country.

Just drop down where you find food

Have your fill, then fly on

When shall l fly? l don't know.

Of necessity, my wings are clipped

l'm shackled to my bread.

But someday l'll surely go...

to my land. To my Punjab

''When the koels sing in spring,

it's time again for memories''

''lt's time again for swinging

underthe boughs''

''Come home o'wanderer,

your heart beckons''

''The mute soil doesn't

read your letters''

''Come, kiss your soil, bring back

the earth to life''

''Yes, you have your dreams;

but we are yours too, your kin''

''You are so forgetful,

but we miss you so...''

''Come home o'wanderer,

your land beckons''

Glory to The Goddess

Yes Lajjo, l'm here safe and sound.

. Good

Why is my little one giggling away?

. Mom! Every day for20 years...

Dad has been walking down

the very same street...

to his very same destination.

Yet every day, you call him up...

just to ask him, ''Have you reached?''

. You won't understand

Just assume it's a habit.

. Habit left unchanged...

tends to become necessity.like.

. Philosophy, again? You're twelve

Talk like a 12.year old!

Why all this big talk?

There's no childhood, no adulthood.

One is as grown.up as one feels

All right! l lose! Now go to school,

chew yourteacher's brains, okay?

Why d'you forget

the almonds everyday?

What to do?

Just assume it's habit

Will you get out?

''This is the first time

it's happening in 18 years''

''Some stranger l have never seen,

comes to my mind''

That's my diary!

. So what...?

Only l can read it.

. That was so funny

Let me read some more.

. No way! This is a private diary.

Why hide anything from me?

When a girl is grown up...

her mother becomes her friend.

Show that to me

You won't tell anyone, will you?

. Never

All right. l'll read. You listen.

. very well

''This is the first time

it's happening in 18 years''

''Some stranger l have never seen,

comes to my mind...''

''shadow.like before my eyes''

''Someone raps on my heart''

''Deep eyes want me to give myself up''

''When l look at my hands,

there l see a face etched''

''A silken breath brushes my cheeks''

''My hair still smells

of the odour on his hands''

''Yes, it's happening for

the first time in 18 years''

''l've never seen this stranger

who comes to my mind''

Simi, you've begun

writing Quite well,...

and the boy seems lively.

Who's he?

Ma, l've yet to set my eyes on him

So there's no one? l was wondering.

One doesn't find such boys nowadays

And you dream of someone

you haven't even seen! quite mad

No Ma. This is no dream

l may not have met him, seen him.

But he's there. Out there, somewhere

''The one who comes in my dreams...''

''the one who teases me...''

''just ask him to face me, once''

''What's he like? Who is he?

Who knows where is the one...''

''my lips will say yes to?''

''ls he someone l know?

ls he a stranger?''

''ls he for real,

or just a legend?''

''He stares at me,

from far, far away''

''Tell him not to rob me

of my sleep''

''The one who comes in my dreams...''

''the one who teases me...''

''just ask him to face me, once''

''Some kind of spell is overcoming me''

Aditya Chopra

Aditya Chopra (born 21 May 1971) is an Indian filmmaker. His work as a director includes Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995), Mohabbatein (2000), Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008) and Befikre (2016).He is also the current Chairman of India's multi-national film, media and entertainment conglomerate Yash Raj Films (YRF). Chopra has written and produced a number of critically acclaimed and commercially successful films under the banner such as Veer-Zaara (2004), Fanaa (2006), Band Baaja Baaraat (2010), Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), the Dhoom series (2004, 2006 & 2013), Sultan (2016) and the Tiger series (2012 & 2017). He has broken away from typecast through production of off-beat films such as Kabul Express (2006), Chak De! India (2007), Rocket Singh (2009), Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) and Hichki! (2018), that do not necessarily fit into the realm of "Masala films". Chopra is also the first to move towards a true film studio model through independent projects helmed by producers, writers and directors under his banner. Major production and post-production work of the company is now carried out of YRF Studios (co-founded by his ex-wife Payal Khanna), where Chopra serves as Chief Executive. As of March 2018, he has produced eight films that have accumulated worldwide gross earnings of more than ₹200 crore, which is the most for an Indian film producer. In December 2009, Chopra rejected an extremely aggressive acquisition bid by Walt Disney, valued upwards of ₹2500 crore, to remain and continue purely as an independent entity exclusively funded by domestic enterprises. Apart from emerging as an equitable brand, his company has earned the status of a movie movie mogul, through distribution networks spread across the globe. With a majority of his work being part of the highest grossing films of all time, the company is estimated to be net worth ₹6350 crore (FY17/18) by multiple NSE and BSE analysts, thereby making it the biggest and most successful film production company in the history of Cinema. The Government of India honoured him with the National Film Award for his contribution to the arts, on three separate years (1995, 2005 and 2007) through the Directorate of Film Festivals. In June 2018, he was awarded membership into The Academy by the Producers Guild of America. Widely regarded as one of the most influential and powerful executives in Indian entertainment, Chopra has however rejected the publicity and fame that came with being Yash Chopra's son and the Chief Executive of Yash Raj Films. He has remained extremely media-shy and a passive individual, battling constant reports of an alleged dysthymic disorder throughout his three-decade career, resulting in very few public photos of him being in existence. more…
