#WebSeriesReco #Scam1992TheHarshadMehtaStory #Scam1992OnSonyLIV

Certain series and shows leave an undeniable impact on the power long after the last credit rolls up. You may have identified, rooted, hated, loved the character. Some shows just refuse to go out of memory...

Scam1992 The Harshad Mehta Story is one such show.

Brilliantly shot and executed, this show, based on a book, chronicles Harshad Mehta's raise to stardom, his iconic battles with banking giants, his trysts with PSBs, his downfall and ultimately his death

Show presents Harshad Mehta in his form. Neither making him a hero nor a villain, the viewer is connected to him throughout the series as they ride the waves of Harshad's success, through the rocky terrain of his failures and ultimately down the waterfall of his failure..

As the final montage plays, Harshad says, Dont give me roses. Dont give me brickbats. Let me be what I am. I am proud of what I am.

Supported by an ensemble cast, the show boasts of some finest performances. Shreya Dhanwanthary was at her best as the journalist.

An underplayed, but an absolutely sweet and brilliant performance by Faisal Rashid as Debashis Basu.

Rajat Kapoor as CBI Director Madhavan oozes energy, spirit, integrity into the narrative. An absolute masterpiece of a performance.

Coming to the protagonists... Pratik Gandhi and Hemant Kher as the Mehta Brothers are natural... I would like to call out Hemant Kher's performance as Ashwin Mehta.. The pain for his brother is clearly visible in his eyes..

One can clearly make out the brotherly bonhomie..

between the 2 brothers. Superb performance.

Pratik Gandhi as Harshad Mehta is an absolute treat. One of the finest performances, he makes you root for the hero of masses as he climbs the himalayas of financial success.

His can-do-it attitude is infectious.. quite enigmatic

The scene at the end with Harshad's body on a hospital bench hits you in the gut. Betrayed by his own trusted lieutenant, the man who once ruled Dalal Street lies like a common man..

An absolute masterpiece of a show.. don't miss the same on SonyLiv

8/8 -- end --

#Hayagrīva #DeviBhagwatham

Hayagrīva / ಹಯಗ್ರೀವ

In Devi Bhagwatham, there is a chapter dedicated to the Hayagrīva avataara of MahaVishnu. This is one of the most interesting events in our puranas which has atleast 2-3 threads interwoven within them. A thread below

1/ Image
Once upon a time, there would be a major war between Devas and Asuras that would run upto 10,000 years. Maha Vishnu would be fighting this war and would be a little tired.

He goes to Vaikuṇṭha to take some rest, sits in a padmasaana.

His bow would be set on the side in a slanting position and Maha Vishnu would be resting against it.

Devas accompanied by Brahma and Maheshwara come to Vaikuṇṭha in search of him and find him in Yōganidrā. They want to wake him up, but are wary of the same.

#Poem #Anonymous ...

Sharing a poem I read somewhere..

Pebbles in her path, thorns in her feet... alone
Treading along the maze of life, with gusto and dominance
As a rock she stands, stronger than ever.. On her own
Inspiration beyond comparison, lovable is her presence

Circumstances and situations seem fantastic
Alone the poet was trudging along, taking a stroll
Met her did the poet, asked her for an inspiration
She said, Write something to solace your soul

Spirits of fire, angelic is her form
Object of my attention, engulfed my imagination
Prostrate I do, front of her majestic aura
Offer I can, few words as my oblation

#Response #Reaction #RandomThoughts

In the last 10 days, the number of posts I have drafted and deleted far outnumber the ones I posted.

Why? I am trying to implement restraint in response for wider good. Some random thoughts..

As a signal processing enthusiast, my life's been filled with Impulse Responses.

Philosophically one wonders if this was prophetic. The stability of a system (as in DSP) as well as in life is measured through it's impulse response

To put things in perspective, I quote a very often described concept

Stimulus + REACTION = Response

Stimulus is available in plenty in nature. In a fluid platform like Twitter, we get stimuli every nano seconds. However, the next few aspects are more critical
