P e r f e c t i o n. That’s how I’d describe the performance by Tajdar Junaid & Friends at @topcatcculive on Sunday. I was transfixed from the first note! There was a concert-hall like quiet while these brilliant musicians played their set.* From ‘What Colour is your Raindrop’ all the way to Mukti Bhawan’s OST, we were all so enthralled and moved by the diverse facets of Tajdar’s music. Tajdar Junaid & Friends: @tajdarjunaid , @rhnr , @ajayjayanthi , @nathan_bassman & @sambitc *Apart from this cute little 👶 who was on his own journey of discovering TopCat!
Throwback Time: Benaras/Varanasi I've mixed feelings about this place. While I was immersed in the rich culture and heritage of this place which has one of India's largest Universities, is visited by tourists around the world, is renowned for the very famous Benarasi silk and of course the movie Don, made Benarasi pan famous like no other. But what I usually notice is the attitude of people in any place that I go to and here I did question if the people of Benaras were really progressive in their thoughts or not. The answer was sliding a little towards the negative side of the scale but, that's just my view. That said, I've visited so many temples during my 2day visit here, that I usually don't do in a year back home. The standing ground for our PM is witnessing super infra development, the food is a little overrated but something's just leave you mesmerized. The ghats are very peaceful, but some ghats are a little morbid, like the Harish Chandra Ghat where mortal remains are on their last leg to attain Nirvana. Each ghat has a story to tell, if you're up for it. The Ganga aarti at the Dasashwamedha Ghat is something no one should miss. Sarnath was another bucket list item which I ticked. A drive through Benaras Hindu University left me in awe! If you're a Chai lover, well bonanza! Would I go back there, of course yes! #varanasi#traveldiaries#benarasdiaries#instatraveller#foodtrail#dashwamedhghat#gangaarti#ghatdiaries#muktibhawan#benarashinduuniversity#kashivishwanath#sarnathtemple#oldestcity#upnorth
Mukti Bhavan- A hotel where people check in to die and attain Moksha (Nirvana). Was trying not to go there from a long time because I always thought it is gonna be a sad place to visit. But inside the house they just keep the environment so peaceful, cheerful and the most amusing thing is their acceptance for Death and way they talk about it is not negative at all. They sit near the patient/guest and sing to send them to sleep and wake them up with songs and Aarti. One of the reason why people visit Kashi to die. #varanasi#muktibhawan#kashi
There was a wonderful sense of cinema in the Himachali Gian Jyoti College and the Masrehar Women Collective! DIFF and Jagori Grameen Charitable Trust organized a screening of the 2017 Ektara Collective film, "Turup," and the 2016 Shubhashish Bhutiani film, "Mukti Bhawan." With a total of 58 participating individuals, eyes were glued to the screenings followed by a lively discussion! A massive thank you to the filmmakers, @ektaracollective and @shubhashishb for letting their films become a part of our communities here. We will be holding our community screenings in villages, colleges and jails across Dharamshala and neighbouring areas so stay tuned to see what we have planned! . . #community#screening#diffindia#diff2018#headtothemountains#turup#muktibhawan

Mukti Bhawan-Hotel Salvation A simple thread where the son is forced to go to Banaras because his father wants to have salvation. Its not more about the death here but of life and keeping it simple. Beautifully portrays the relationship of a grandfather and grand daughter, father-son, etc. The stubbornness of the elderly man, the helplessness of his son, the simplicity of his daughter, just says how complicated yet simple relationships are or can be. And the beautiful, raw banaras, the ganga maiya, the ganga aarti, the ghats, the deaths, the celebration of deaths, ah a treat it was. Some honest, feel good cinema. #muktibhawan#hotelsalvation#life#death#celebrationoflife#celebrationofdeath#banaras#varanasi#ganga#ghats
