Samrath Bhau Moze

Samrath Bahu Moze..... is a member of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) in Pune.


Moze (30), is hoping to contest from Panel 14 in Shivajinagar. Lately he has gained recognition for sporting gold ornaments weighing 8.5 kilograms that cost over Rs 2.37 crore.  




His inspiration is the previous goldfinger of Maharashtrian politics Ramesh Wanjale an MLA with the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) who passed away in 2011 of a heart attack........

But, Wanjale wore gold weighing only 2 kilograms....


May his soul rest in peace knowing that his style successor Moze, has surpassed his ambitions of loving gold, politics and fashion by a whopping 6.5 kilograms.

The thing about.....

....sleepless nights.... Is that they rob you of your precious sleep.... They don't add anything to your life that the day can't give you.... Even though the hours gained awake.... Would be the hours lost in sleep.... The thing about sleepless nights is that.... They deprive you of innocent dreams.... Not those innocent dreams that you have in the day... Those are the most beautiful.... The could be's of fantasy.... I am referring to those other innocent dreams that come from ... The has been's of the multi layered realm of the endless bounty of the mind... And perhaps....those unreachable portals of the soul.... Like the dream I had last night.... I saw her....even though I have never seen her before.... We looked at each other in an awkward glance.... And I swear I thought it was real..... These are the kind of beautiful moments that sleepless nights deny you.... The thing about sleepless nights... Is that they rob you of your precious sleep.... But sometimes awaken the poet inside of you.

Krushak Ashram

Welcome to Krushak Ashram they told me, here no one is big or small, important or unimportant, rich or  poor.


The only hierarchy is that, the cow is divine and she must be respected. She is the mother.

 Luckily when I visited this farm, it happened to be a very holi day for the residents of Satara, I am not familiar with the exact meaning of this long stick...but everyone and everything is at a stand still for a week in this area, because the pilgrams take this large holi stick/pole from village to village....


 And finally end up at a their destination...



I was lucky to be privi to this nondescript little tradition that I was unaware of and coincidentally was wearing the appropriate color. 





Shrirang and Pranay working on the script of the film that I will be making about this farm 'Krushak Ashram'

and this pup....

What a lovely day that was...

Home....

This is a place which is called 'Refuge for Creativity', whether it be in the kitchen or in the balcony, or in the passage or in the store room. Within these walls, one will always find themselves creating, conjuring, formulating and executing whatever crazy thoughts and ideas they want to express. All are welcome!

The last five days have been intense. We cut, broke, matched, designed and adhered all sorts of permutations and combinations of tiles found, purchased, donated and left over...

In these last five days, work has been non stop from 10am to 8pm....with lunch break ofcourse, and today we had a coffee break, thats cos...we are nearing the end...and can live a little.

Creation...

tis not the longing for the thing itself....

 tis the far call for the certain state of that thing which already exists....



Creativity tis not the cry of a lonely wolf....

tis the far cry of that call....

thus creation... just happens somehow.....

 and the thing presents itself.

A far cry not gone in vain.
