Connecting with my Idols!

A new cool application for your phone is here; Wechat, with amazing features.When Wechat, through Indiblogger, gave me an opportunity to write about, whom I would like to connect with, if I could, and why? and what would I talk about, I had dozens of options flashing in my mind. so, i randomly chose 5 of them.

Birbal:  Aka Maheshdas Brahmabhatt. Both wit and humor fascinates me and I find a man with this combination deadly. Raja Birbal was one of those men who was blessed with this blend and walked with every sense of royalty on this planet. A learned man whose judging abilities and intelligent words found him a place not only in the court as one of the Navratans but also in the heart of Emperor Akbar. His loyalty towards the Emperor was profound and was till his death. World knows him for his wisdom and humor but if given a chance to connect with him on wechat, I would like to know more about his military and administrative responsibilities which he carried out, his last battle that he fought like a true warrior, ergo, knowing the complete man he was. Of course, would love to have humorous exchanges with him all along the chat.


Audrey Hepburn: Audrey Kathleen Ruston, an actress and a humanitarian. Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder, and my eyes behold her as one of the most beautiful women mankind has ever seen. Film industry, be it anywhere in the world, always seek for a great face that has a soul filled with acting talent. And very rarely comes along a super talent tagging along with a beautiful face that carves a niche for itself even after years of its physical death. Hollywood had such a find in Audrey who gave some of the most sparkling performances in movies like, My Fair Lady, Sabrina, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and so on. Despite having a troubled childhood and developing severe health conditions during WWII, She made it in the entertainment industry. Her failed personal life never deterred her from her humanitarian causes.
Connecting with her on wechat would mean a long chat session for me with the talented beauty. I would want to know what inspired her to be so strong in all the adversities she faced and about her experiences while filming those amazing works of art; her movies.

Vyasa: The great author of all times, Veda Vyasa; The creator of the epic Mahabharata along with being the one who classified Vedas into four. Connecting with him on wechat, would mean a month or even more given to our chat. All the characters, the scenes, the evolution of the plots, the nuances in the epic are simply fabulous. As a writer, I would like to learn from him, take notes as in how to write rather how to create such a great piece of work in writing. I would request him to divulge any the fiction part of the book. Besides would like to ask him, if there were any part of Mahabharata which he did not disclose in the epic.

Jane Austen: An author of great repute, Jane Austen penned some of the most favorite romantic novels of all times. Her work is an example of romance in pure literary form. If I get to connect with her on Wechat, I would love to discuss her life from her era, about her wonderful family who supported her through out and would ask for pointers for myself as a writer. Of course, would love to make her read my work and ask for her feedback. Lastly, my question to her would be, if she is happy with how her last novel Sadition turned out, which was completed by another author as Jane left the world before finishing it. 

Satyajit Ray:
An epitome of talent. A film maker, music composer, story writer, painter, calligrapher; and he were master in all these fields. Winner of various National and International Awards, Ray gave Indian cinema a new direction. At wechat, if I could connect with the man, I would love to have an adda with him about his movies, the characters, his favorite actors, his inspiration of story telling. Would have a heart to heart chat about what he thought about today’s cinema? And who is his favorite director, both national and international. And my favorite question to him would be, if not a film maker, then what?

    1. Thanks Ritesh. :)
      Vyasa is one of the most interesting characters form Hindu Mythology having authored the most detailed and huge book ever and I have been dreaming of conversing with him and others since my school days, so, when had the chance to write about it, I went for it.
      May be some day I will explore others, not for any contest but just for my blog ;)

  17. I am wondering if it was indeed Birbal who influenced Vyas to include some witty chapters in Mahabharata... like the ones where the Kauravas make a fool of themselves in the new palace that the Pandavas built... maybe WeChat in some form does connect people from different ages!

    All the best!

  21. Fantastic ! It's always good to see someone talking about their idols passionately. I tried doing something similar - but this is a beautiful blend of people; in gender, profession, nationality and spanned across generations.

    You have my vote. :)
