"In the folds of these moments, there are some pure bonds .... Prayers of love are being recited and reverberated by some unseen Angels ... The earth is speechless and the sky bewildered with light .... so much light, that spreads to the heavens !! ... There is a melody in every awake and sleeping breeze .... a beauty in every movement .... as if Love is in the air !!! .... What is this love ? ... What is this dream ? ... What are these feelings of love flooding in ? ... Days have changed, nights have changed ... Conversations have changed .... The way of life have changed !! "
A song was floating in the air as we walked down from Banke Bihari temple at Vrindavan towards the ghats of the Yamuna ... Angel and Aanchal were tripping on the Bhang laddoo prasad from the darshan at Banke Bihari temple and still chanting Radhe Radhe ... The afternoon sun of the Indian month of Phalgun was absolutely incandescent !! ... There was so much light everywhere ... maybe it was the sun ... maybe it was the place ... maybe it was the bhang ... i don't know ... but our hearts and souls were distended with love and curiosity ... i say "distended" and not "filled" because to be filled means you cannot take in anymore .... yet everything and everyone we encountered had a peculiar quality of love and light ... Maybe we were surprised ... roaming around an urban village of Goswamis (Brahmin priests) ... with no cellphones ... no money(though thankfully Aanchal had brilliantly tied a few hundreds to her dupatta end just as a fallback :D, smart girl), ... no Man (this is patriarchal India ;P) escorting us ... just a blue elephant Kaleerey (a dome shaped streamer with tinkling bells tied to a bangle) on Angel and a red one on Aanchal, and my Nikon of course .... yet we did not encounter the beady eyes of city life even once !! ... Everything was so Pakeezah ... that beautiful Urdu word for purity .... In fact looking back i get goosebumps even thinking of coincidences that happen with me ... Angel had rinsed her hair in the temple complex after Bihariji's darshan ... her long curly hair was the popular target of many Holi water guns ... and it dripped in colour any way she moved ... So she washed it under a temple tap ... and in no time her hair dried in all the sunlight into Medusa curls ... I was just thinking of telling her that she looked like Meena Kumari in Pakeezah ... when i heard the song .... "In lamhon ke daaman mein .... Pakeezah se rishte hain .... Koi kalma mohabbat ka .... Dohrate farishte hain ..... Khamosh si hai zameen hairaan sa falak hai .... Ek noor hi noor sa ab aasman talak hai ..... Nagmein hi nagmein hai jagti soti fizaon mein .... Husn hai saari adaon mein .... Ishq hai jaise hawaon mein .... Kaise yeh ishq hai .... Kaisa yeh khwab hai ... Kaise jazbaat ka umda salab hai .... Din badle raatein badli, baatein badli ..... Jeene ke aandaz hi badlein hai" !!! ... Get the Pakeezah connection ? :p  .... This is Part 2 of our #Roadtripping Series 1 ... with The Filmy Owl, Delhi's hottest talent, our favourite doodle artist, aka Angel Bedi !! .... presenting Angel and Aanchal, the Queens of Sass :D

"No, no ! The adventures first, explanations take such a dreadful time ! " .... When Lewis Carroll told a story to little Alice once upon a time, rowing down the river on a lazy sunny afternoon .... it resulted in a huge book of many pages ... the Adventures in Wonderland ..... that changed the world ... that changed My world !! .... Thats the thing about adventures .... it changes you .... you are never the same when you come back to where you started ! ... So was our trip to Vrindavan on Holi, with  The Filmy Owl , the alter ego of Angel Bedi, who "aims to doodle quirky smiles across the universe, all the way to infinity" with her brilliant illustrations of life in the Indian capital, Delhi :) ... We at DSB have been thinking about a roadtripping series for long ... the idea is to discover the innate Style Barometer of the hot young creatives we know locally and socially beyond their fame and celebrityhood ... to know and understand their unique worldviews that fuel such brilliant outputs in the field of fashion, art, entertainment and music .... We have been following Angel avidly on Instagram ( 9834 followers) , on Facebook ( 30362 ) as The Filmy Owl and on her personal FB page, and she is just the sort of person you would want to go on an adventure with ... Filmy is local slang for die hard movie fans whose life and vocabulary is peppered with scenes and dialogues from blockbusters and Owl is well, ... an incredibly wise bird by connotation ... Angel is as filmy in real life as her quirky sassy doodle characters .... and as wise as the Owl on the tree who "saw more" and "spoke less" delivering wit in nano bites, enough to sting but with a dash of self deprecating humour !! ... Here is our picturesque account with the very lovable Filmy Owl :)
