Still I persevere

So if you read my last blog entry - Mumtaz is dead - has been for 375 years!!
But we - or at least I, intend to find my Mumtaz.
I may not build her a Taj because I wish that I never had to live a day longer than she.
She will inspire; she will love; she will strike; she will engage; she will mother.
Her visage will enchant and calm.
Not for me the ones who drive a man crazy.
Shah Jahan married thrice - Akbari begum, Fathepuri begum and then Mumtaz Mahal. A fine example of 3rd time lucky.
I don't want to marry thrice and then get lucky. Knowing my luck - I'd go broke paying the alimony on the first two wives. Who could afford a third??

I take comfort from the fact that I've met several women, a few ladies and some girls. Life has taken me down many a path that I remember and deliberate the chances of success had they been pursued with the passion of the Black stallion. No regrets however - this is not an article in black!!
I visited Kabalarians.com and ran a check on the name - Mumtaz. This is what they had to say.

Your first name of Mumtaz has made you a patient, meticulous person who enjoys working in a detailed, systematic way. You are determined and deliberate in pursuing your ambitions, but you must work at your own speed. You hate to be hurried or to leave anything unfinished or untidy. Your infinite patience would allow you to develop intricate, involved skills to perfection. Often feeling burdened with work, you worry about details out of proportion to their importance.
Although the name Mumtaz creates the urge to be both logical and technical, we emphasize that it limits your versatility and scope, tuning you to technical details exclusively. This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the elimination system, which can lead to other complications

That's not my Mumtaz !!!
My search continues...

search without a destination !!!
Arjun said…
why do you think there is no destination???
Jo said…
OK, now I'm just curious.
How's your Mumtaz supposed to be? Kuch hints do...
mallik said…
ek milegi, chali jayegi, dusri milegi chali jayegi, mumtaz is a mathematical function.
Arjun said…
Well said Mallik - but the fact of the matter is that I haven't met Mumtaz yet...
And in answer to Jo's question - I've described Mumtaz in those 2 lines in bold font... that's all I know about her.
Mallik said…
Yes, it remains a fact, you can never meet mumtaz, because mumtaz is a function, not a person. You are in love with a charecter and not the actor. Hence the search for an actor is always elusive.

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…
