On Passing Away of Dear Friends

It is appalling how few in the print media take the liberty nowadays to print quotes that spring from the imagination of the scribe. It shocked me and Saira to read newspaper reports with imaginary quotes from Saira about plans to celebrate my birthday!  We have yet to recover from the shock of the passing away of my dear friend Yash Chopra who was by my side when I blew away the candles on my birthday cake last year and stayed on till the wee hours, sharing the family’s happiness. 

We are deeply grieving the passing of Balasaheb Thackeray who I always thought was not a Tiger but a Lion. He had the virtues of a lion. We will cherish in our memories the lively evenings at his home when we smoothened out our differences over cups of strong masala tea. I found him extremely sensitive on occasions, especially during the days Sunil Dutt was going from pillar to post to get justice for his son Sanjay. Balasaheb’s response was that of a father who understood a father’s desperation to save his son. We pray for Balasaheb’s family, especially for his son Uddhav, to derive strength from the Almighty to bear the irreparable loss. 

Rajesh Khanna who was with us at our party last year is no more with us. And Dara Singh who wished me so warmly on my birthday last year is not with us anymore.  A friend I am missing is NKP Salve, a stalwart of the Indian National Congress, who shared my love for the game of cricket and initiated me into the legalities of taxation with his command over Law and Accountancy.   

With so many dear friends gone this year, how can we even think of a celebration?

  3. Dilip I'm sorry here. We cannot sympathise with a person who always spread hatred in life. Bal Thackeray always vented anger. First with south india he said "Uthao Lungi Bajo Pungi". He went after Gujrati, marwari community and then angered North Indians when he said UP and Bihari bhaiyas are like gutter rats and said ek bihari sau bimari. In 70's he said muslims are like cancer when he knew 99% of muslims are peace loving. He said hindu people should develop suicide bombs to counter islam terrorism. In 1993 he said Shiv Sainiks are proud to defeat muslims during babri. Such person cannot go anywhere except DOSAK and hell. May his soul burn in hell

    1. I m agree with you what you stated against Bal Thakuray. But dilip kumar's opinion is his personal state of experience which has nothing to do with others experiences. Bal Thakuray proved to be bone of contention.

  4. Sameer - we cannot wish any one dosak or hell - Allah is most forgiving - surely let Allah be the judge not a human being such as me or you.There is a saying let truth prevail and surely every human being who departs will go through a balance check in God's kingdom and ultimately Allah will decide- what Dilip Kumar has done is stated facts and expressed condolences to the family- nothing wrong with that.

  8. As Mahatma Gandhi said" Who is Hindu and who is Muslim when there is Ram in Ramzan and Ali in Diwali" you very rightly are a gifted human being par excellence
    You have the decency to value and cherish friends as a perfect gentleman, besides being the finest actors the Indian Cinema industry has ever created.
    May God bless you with many more Birthdays to come and may you enjoy the bliss and joy each and every day as if it was your Birthday.

  9. Dilip Sir, this is simply your greatness and generosity that you have rightly expressed your condolence on the death of one of the most feared enemy of Indian muslims as well as north Indians. You followed the path of Prophet Mohammad who chose to visit the old woman who used to throw garbage on his head from the roof of her house, when she fell ill. God bless you Sir, and grant you a long and healthy life. Ameen

  19. Respected Yusuf Saheb, Salams;
    my journey from Tweeter to yr Blog!I found late but still better..I am pleased to talk to you, its a dream: now rewinding stray meetings:1970,Ghalib Centenary @Delhi..yr speech"We are celebrating Ghalib but Urdu's.." later from behind the stage calling me" Zara Sager Suri kai driver ko idher bhej do!"
    1984 @ Delhi when you narrated Rampuri-accent before Dr. Farooq Abdullah, RNR Gandhi, our Balli ji, Siddiqui saheb and CEAT-team!
    Kardar saheb giving explanations to SM Saeed saheb and Dr. Hamid saheb winking,Sardar Akhtar enjoying!
    All have gone to retiring- room & waiting for the next stage of life to stand before our greatest Khaliq ALLAHswt!I pray you have long life with Ieman and physical- strength and He may never leave you on Insan( Aap ko ALLAH insano ki Mohtajgi sai mehfooz rakhai aur Apna Muhtaj banai)..Ameen! A thought on what I found in this world, so far:
    1."It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default."
    2. During our life, everything that we do and everyone we meet rub off in some way… Some bit of everything we experience stays with every-one we have ever known; and feel nothing is lost. That is what's eternal, these little specks of experience in a great; enormous river that has no end....

    3. Great to see U &I admired a force radiating from your smile.. innocence, a jewel of creativity... Masha ALLAH !
    4. O wonder!How many goodly Creatures are there here!
    How beauteous mankind is ! O brave new world, that has such people in it.
    W. Shakespeare
    5. The sea of life has its ebb and flow;
    In every atom's heart is the pulse of life;
    It manifests itself in the body,
    As a flame conceals a wave of smoke !

  61. The passing away of dear friends is an experience that transcends words, a poignant journey through the spectrum of emotions that words often struggle to capture. It's a profound loss that leaves an indelible mark, a bittersweet testament to the depth of connections forged over time. Grief becomes an unexpected companion, weaving through memories cherished and moments shared, a mosaic of laughter, love, and shared experiences that linger in the heart. Yet amidst the ache, there's a profound beauty in the legacy they leave behind—a tapestry of lessons, love, and the lasting impact they've had on those fortunate enough to have called them friends. Their absence is felt deeply, but their spirit persists, carried forth in the stories told, the echoes of their laughter, and the warmth of their presence that remains eternally embedded in the hearts of those they touched.
