Rajesh Khanna.......An Pious Homage To The FALLEN STAR


 Gila  maut se nai hai ….Use  zindagi ne mara…..


He got it after his death , for what he died every moment in last 20 years. He was an live example who portrayed the instability of time. His life was full of up's and down. Born in a medium class family, adopted and raised by a high class relatives. Enjoyed the highest peak of his carreer and stardom, became the only superstar  of largest film industry ,then almost got forgetton by the industry and again got famous by his death. Some say's that he was friend of friends , down to earth person.  Some say's he was proudy , arrogant . But what I personaly belive is  that,  reaching at that heightof popularity & stardom  any one  would have behaved in the same manner he did….

 Flashing back I remember that  once in an public interview …Rajesh Khanna, addressed to the public  that …MERE JAISA SUPERSTAR NA TO HUA HAI  AUR NA HI HOGA ……This was the level of his faith in his stardum……at that time AMITABH BACCHHAN was at his  struggling phase with a series of flops in a row..
 ..With the passage of time  AMITABH BACHCHAN  emerged as the mega star of the century and RAJESH KHANNA  was somewwhere lost  in his stardom. And he was left alone . ( Na kami thi dosto ki ...na kami thi dushmano ki...kai dusmani ne loota ..kahi dosti ne mara ....)
  
It was an very emotional moment when he was honoured with IIFA  LIFETIME ACHEIVEMENT AWARD and that too by      Amitabh bachchan….where he said that ….

                   IZZATEIN SHOHRATEIN, NAFRATEIN, INAYTEIN….
                     IS JAHAN ME SAB KUB KUCH EK JAISA NAI REHTA ….
                         AAJ MAI HU JAHA …..KAL KOI AUR THA …..
                           ARE YE BHI EK DAUR HAI …AUR HUMARA BAHI EK DAUR THA …..

He almost died  every moment for his lost stardom he enjoyed earlier (mere fans mujhse koi nai cheen sakta ) his pain was reflected by this recent ad….what I feel that the love and affection which the public showed now , if it would have been earlier ..his soul  would have actually rested in peace.
These line very much suits him..that …
                
JAB TAK JINDA THA KOI PUCHTA NA THA …
                     MAUT NE AAGOSH ME LIYA …..
                                     AUR ANMOL KAR DIYA ….

 Strange but true his death reaveled this better truth of this world that when a thing is no more …its real value is being realized…
§  MAY GOD BESTOW HIM ACTUAL PEACE……
