Salman Khan, Bhaijan Who Makes Millions of Hearts Beat

It’s Salman Khan’s birthday today! The Bhai of Bollywood has turned 52! Though he doesn’t look like, isn't it?

While I found many posts wishing him Happy Birthday and counting how many times he proved himself the real BHAI of Bollywood, I would like to talk about Salman Khan, a philanthropist. The happily single actor, despite giving blockbuster films one after another, also works abundantly in a space where he is someone very giving, caring and affectionate towards underprivileged people.The actor is very well known for his charity work and has been making headlines on the same. His charity foundation, Being Human, has already got recognition worldwide.

You know, in the time of face news, I really feel confused when I heard something unbelievable. And as per a well know media name, Salman Khan spends just 10% of his total income for himself while the rest of it he donates to charities. In one of the TV shows, I heard Salman Khan giving credit to his father Mr. Salim Khan for influencing him. As per the actor, his father hardly spends anything other than basic necessities and this inspired him to follow the similar way of living a life full of good deeds. Since the beginning of his career, Salim Khan had fixed 10% of Salman’s income to be spent for personal need. A part of the balance 90% is used for charity. Now when Salman has his own NGO, Being Human, the rest of his income goes to the same. Salman still doesn’t know how much money he actually has in his account. He maintains a low profile of himself and spends meagrely on his personal need.

As a common man, if you are confused, is this even possible to survive on only 10% of earning? Then you must keep in mind that he is not a 9 to 5 employee. He is a megastar and obviously earns in crores. His annual earing is close to 60-70 crores, 10% of this comes to 7 crores and that suffices to live a grander life. Salman Khan also has a passion for painting. And many times, we have seen how beautiful paintings he makes. In 2007, Salman auctioned his paintings and donate all the money earned to a charity organisation. Another love of his life is fitness. If I remember correctly, he is the first one who started showing off his toned body in films. There are many Bollywood actors who proudly say that Salman Bhai helped me in getting the perfect body and a perfect Bollywood break for that matter. As a 50+ man, he gives such big fitness goals to men of his age who mostly prefer breaking couch at home while watching TV and checking their mobile phones.

Now coming back to Salman Khan, the big heart man, I read somewhere that his NGO has adopted several villages in Maharashtra and outside the state. The organisation helps the underprivileged kids across India to get a better education. As per Mumbai Mirror report, when Salman Khan was shooting for his film 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' in Kashmir, he helped a family there. Zaina Begum met Salman when he was shooting in Pahalgam and let Salman know all her problems. The actor apparently helped her eldest grandson, Gowhar Ahmad Bhat with an immediate job and assured the family that they would never want anything else. Gowhar was quoted saying, "Upar khuda hai, neeche Salman Khan".

I know his name is involved in many other NO-GOOD cases where he went through court trails and even faced criticism for being a powerful man who eventually got the ball in his court. However, when I read posts like "बजरंगी भाईजान की वजह से धड़कता है कई बच्चों का दिल" I feel, even if he was charged for murder, there are many other lives who exist just because of him. There are many kids who smile today just because of him and there are many hopes still depends solely on him.

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

A few questions to Halloween party people of India

Ugly pumpkins, ridiculous costumes and over-the-top makeup, trick or treating for kids and scary themed parties for the adults, the story of Halloween runs deeply in the Western culture. And these days I have been observing a flood of Halloween posts in my social media accounts . "10 ideas to celebrate Halloween with your kids..", "10 craft projects for Halloween..", "10 things to do at Halloween night.." There are parties happening for Halloween. Costumes are getting sold. Myriads of contests are posting spooky pictures and asking to share even more ghostly pictures. And amidst all this, I am puzzled, baffled and tickled.

I don't know if this is the notion of globalization or a modest thought to adopt cultures regardless of the geographical borders. Howbeit, I am sure about one thing that I hate the idea of kids celebrating Halloween here in India.

I have a few questions in my mind that I humbly want to ask those Halloween party people:
How you are p…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…
