In that continuum of ‘Sau Grams’ (100 grams of life), the precious 100 grams , my summer holidays fit in. Out of all my good times, this discrete holiday began. It didn’t start with splendour and pomp, it tip toed in, like nice and silky dreams.
This morning I was listening to one of my favourite songs, “Sau Gram Zindagi Yeh” composed by Sanjay Lila Bansali. A blogger puts it in a nifty way, I quote, “All the happy moments in life can be compressed and saved into 100gms, but these 100gms would be the most precious thing we all would have”. The blogger goes on, “Sweet, sour, teary-eyed, hysterical, thoughtful, all the emotions we have ever gone through, all the pictures of vivid colour, all the great days when we thought it couldn’t get any better, or worse”
“Thodi si meethi hai
Zara si mirchi hai”.
The lyrics went on, reverberated with its melody and magnetic flavour to say, Zindagi (life) is composed of a dash of sweetness, but make no mistake, the counterpart , slight unpleasantness of ‘mirch’ , doesn’t matter if it is chili con carne or red hot chili of the orient which can initiate the flow of tears, tears of happiness and joy.
