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.”

Hi Aamir !!
you have jus made me remind of my past which i'd spent in
"Jannat' (Panchgani) , yes i was in sanjeewan vidyalaya for three
years and after i saw ur movie TZP my emotions rose up again. The
feelings that arise when u leave ur parents n family for the very
first time and the whole new world that is full of miscreants is
calling us n it is that point when one learns how to
differentiate amongst good and bad ones. The burden of living
independent is felt . i must really appreciate ur hard work n
bringing up these feelings openly.

I also remember that when u n ur wife came to panchgani back in
2002 or something we were so eager to meet u, at that point we
were ready to skip of the campus taking the risk n see u once.

Anyways, it was nice writing to u n watching ur movies. Take

hello every1, its really disappointing that aamir would make such
sarcasm on srk. i m no lesser or greater fan of either, or
salmaan, or snaju, or tom hanks, or robertdiniro or any1 in
entertainment business, .. but guys aamir is as human as others.
he definitely let out his jealous tint of character. This is the
problem with internet that any1 writes anything about others.
This is the biggest of all disadv of this medium to the freedom
of speech. Lets keep this blog on good spirits. let us all come
to good moods, rather than spoiling each other's mood. i hope all
these big actors are able to live in harmony and good will
irrespective of the stress and competition, and lead to a
healthier environment.
i had watched a movie of Will Ferrell which dealt with such humor
in tv series. but i dont rembr the title, may be its anchorman...

someone very intelligent has said that if people start talking
about ,,, no matter good or bad it simply means that your success
is multiplying by every day and night.
SRK is much above such petty bullshit remarks by JEALOUS ARROGANT
and INSECURED people like Aamir and his close friend Salman

Aamir is such a cunning man who only knows to take undue
advantage of situations ...SRK may not be a great actor (compare
to AB) but definitely a GREAT HUMAN BEING in the whole film

He rose from nowhere had no backing of his chahchas and others had and still very modest and humble.

Love you srk and thats why writing this only for you on your
friends blog.

Hey Aamir, all the best for ghajini. I hope you manage to give
another hit. I have nothing against you are a good actor.
But i dont find you a good human being and that should neither
bother you and me. its your life.
