In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

  1. Ashokji,
    Again very admirable hard work. The pick of your list is Mere dil ko jalaya na karo by Rafi and Shamshad Begum in Gauna. This could have figured in my Select List.

    Mohabbat ke maaron ka haal seems to be a very favourite theme in our songs. In the same year, we have Shamshad Begum’s Mohabbat karnewalon ka yahi anjaam hota hai in Ankhen. In Albela (1951) we have Haseenon se mohabbat ka bura anjaam hota hai. Does it give you ideas for MVS?

    1. I have been toying with the idea of songs that have a common line used in their mukhda. I have been able to collect some material as well.
      Mohabbat Ke Maaron is certainly a very popular common thread in our heart-broken love birds world of Hindi Films.
      And I fight hard to desist from thanking you for your so very encouraging response ….
