Hum Dono

Jo khatm ho kisi jagah, ye aisa silsila nahi...
I remember that as a kid I used to like Dev Anand a lot. Thanks to the good old days of doordarshan there were  re-runs of movies like Tere ghar ke saamne, Kaala Paani, CID, Solva Saal.  And then there was the sunday morning Rangoli to catch Dev Sahab romancing Waheeda Rehman in 'Khoya khoya chaand....ho..ho' and crooning 'Tu kahan ye bata is nasheeli raat mein' on the streets.

And I felt the need to go back to it because there were certain things that I couldn't share with you...and moreover there were some worries that I needed to sort out without troubling you. D gave me the refuge I was craving for. There were times when I shared with it and inflicted pain upon it by tearing away…
