Settlers Of Panchgani.   

I’m sitting under a tree, on the edge of a valley, approximately 5000 feet above sea level. The river Krishna flows far below us snaking its way among the Sahyadri mountains. A cool breeze is blowing, jannat ki hawa (breeze from the heavens), as my mother calls it. Ammi, Ira and Junaid are by my side and we are in the middle of one of our favourite board games ‘Settlers Of Catan’. Shahrukh is licking my feet and I am feeding him biscuits every now and then. What more can I ask for?

Now, before you jump to any conclusions let me add that Shahrukh is the name of our dog. And before you jump to any further conclusions let me add that I had nothing to do with naming him. In fact Shahrukh is the dog of the caretakers of our house. When I bought this house it came with the caretakers and their dog! Apparently Shahrukh (the actor) was shooting for a commercial in this house a few years ago, and that very day the caretakers bought a pup…, and named him Shahrukh. What are the chances of me buying a house which comes with a dog called Shahrukh!!!

Some of my friends claim that I bought the house just because of the dog. I would have to be a serious fan of Shahrukh’s to want to do that. Your guess…

All I can say is I’m waiting for him to come over, .

Getting back to Settlers of Catan, it’s a wonderful game. You must try it if you are fond of board games.

All in all I am having a great time with my mom and kids here in my favorite place on earth, Panchgani. I think Kiran and I must have done something good in our life to be blessed with this great place to get away to.

My hamstring muscle seems to be healing, slowly but surely.

Catching up on films, saw Casino Royale last night which I liked.

Incidentally Panchgani is a favorite with para-gliders. Now that’s something I am going to learn as soon as I finish with the Ghajini shoot.

Well Shahrukh is once again begging for my attention, so let me get back to him. He is smelling too much, I think he needs a bath. “Heel boy, heel.”

making fun of another artist or non artist is just so easy, the
act of making fun now has a layered history and every form of it
has been used and employed.making fun is easy. if you display
caring enough as to evidently go beyond the neccessary to make
fun of a co-actor by mocking him disrespectfully and restlessly,
you might as well care enough to attend an award show you so
proudly claim is not something you respect being acknowledged by.
or still better, you could as pretenselessly and gracefully agree
that you are nevertheless not ignorant of the games one plays
when an artist becomes more an industrialist.

Hmm...goes to say that even a really really smart person like
you, Aamir, can make mistakes like this! I am sure this was
probably an inside joke (about the dog) that you and SRK would
laugh about that you decided to make public.....Anyway, we
sometimes forget that you are just a person like our family and
friends and you have reminded us about that......Dont think many
people will be as philosophical though :)
