This is probably the most nonsense post ever written in the history of blogging.
SSM and I go to drop Ri to school every morning and on our way I come across this broken dilapidated carving of Lord Shiva on wall; somewhere near the market place.
|I am sure this was a piece of art once upon a time|
This carving has been intriguing me for a long time, rather, nagging me. Because everytime I see it I get this feeling that it resembles someone and I can’t figure out whom. You know, it is that annoying, irritating feeling - where you can’t place your finger on something and it keeps screeching at the back of your head wanting you to tear your hair apart – that feeling.
So that has been going on for long.
You know how people have comfort songs, songs that they listen to when they feel low and not too great about their lives. I too have a comfort song – Yeh jo thode se paise from the movie Papa kehte hai. While I love the song, the picturisation (Microsoft gives me a red underline on the word ‘picturisation’ and does not give me spelling suggestion. So I am not sure if the spelling is incorrect. I will leave it as it is) of the song always soothes me. I always feel thankful for my existing life and happy that I did not decide to venture into Bollywood.
So last week as I was watching the song on Youtube the realisation dawned upon me that the reason why that Lord Shiva carving seemed familiar was because the lips exactly resembled that of Mayuri Kango’s lips.
|See... same lips|
Serious. No kidding. Check it for yourself. Are they not the exact same lips. The person who carved this Shiva, had to be a fan of Mayuri Kango. I was so impressed. I have total respect for the guy who did this awesome carving. What a fan!
And I finally got freed from that nagging irritation of trying to find who did the Lord Shiva resemble.
PS: This post is not meant to offend any Lord Shiva worshippers (including myself) or Mayuri Kango's fans (including myself).
Realisation: I can really write crap when I am upset.
