A thousand wishes like these…

One of the most beautifully made movies of its time is Hazaaron Khwahishen Aisi. The movie has made many a fan of Sudhir Mishra. It draws the thin line between the murky politics of the emergency period in the late 70’s and the leftist movement in Bihar. Here’s a dialogue from the movie..

“(Comrade i have not given up...) main mass base mein izafe ki baat kar raha hun. Chote mote self defensive action ke khilaf nahi hoon, yeh aap bhi jante hain…”

Ponder over it…

Yeh kya??....quote ka qoute ka quote ?!!? ;-)

btw...the dialouge doesnt start with the english line (as far as i rembmber).

moreover lets not restrict Hazaaron..... to just the leftist movement in 'bihar'.....

its(amongst other things), the physical,ideological,realizational and practical transition from the college level naxalite infused catalytic activism, to grassroot level hardcore leftist political action (for which part of the theatre of operations is bihar) towards the personal abstract self realization of the limitations of self and ideology.

hasta la vioctoria siempre!!!

cheers.
