Sarkaar - The Godfather

Both Hollywood and Bollywood have taken inspiration from the same book. There are only minor plot changes. However both have one similarity : Loss and Pain



The Godfather is a popular movie which was released quite a few years ago. The lead role of The Godfather ( Don Vito Corleone) was played by Marlon Brando and Al Pacino played his son Michael Corleone. That was Hollywood.

In Bollywood Sarkaar (Subhash Nagre) was played by Amitabh Bachchan and his son Shankar was played by Abhishek Bachchan. Until now I have read the first Godfather book and seen the first 2 movies of the series.



In Sarkaar, Shankar kills his elder brother Vishnu whom he loved a lot because he tried to kill the father. That killing was important for the family "business". Towards the end of the first movie, all the other competing family heads are killed off in a well executed murder rampage.

A lot of double crossings take place which ends up meaning one thing : No can be trusted.

In both movies, The Godfather's daughter-in-law ; Michael Corleone's wife dies in a failed attempt to kill Michael. She accidentally sits in the car in which Michael is supposed to sit. As soon as the ignition is turned on, the car explodes.

In Sarkaar, Shankar himself dies after an attempt on  his life is made. Later it is revealed that his closest aide Chandar (security head) had a hand in the murder to take revenge at being humiliated because he could not save Shankar's wife due to which Shankar fired him and appointed someone else younger and less experienced than him.

Towards the end of the Sakaar Raj, it is shown that Subhash Nagre has now lost both his sons and daughters-in-law. He calls back Vishnu's wife and his grandchild Chiku. He orders the killing of the puppeteer. The trailer of the next movies shows that Subhash Nagre now has nothing to lose and he is the most dangerous person.

My question is : Is power so important that one should kill or get killed in order to acquire it ? What is the point of having power if you do not have your loved ones with you to enjoy it ?

Below is the link to the video of the third part of the Godfather series in which Michael dies with no one next to him. He has only his dog for company and a dilapidated old building as a backdrop

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).



Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…
