    I have travelled extensively with Ashokbhai on a Bajaj Scooter within Ahemadabad! We worked in the same company and shared a ride everyday from home to work to Gujarat Samachat to home.

    Ashokbhai is one of the most funny, lively and emotional personality I have ever met.

    Miss you Dadu!

    Hello, I am Ashok Dave. Thanks for reading my articles ”which even I don’t read!!!”
    Please incorporate some corrections in my Bio Data that appears above.
    1) I was born on 29th February, 1952 and NOT in 1929 as mentioned. I was wondering as to how and why only people above 85-years write to me. Now I know, they too thought, I am a bloody BUDDHA, (which I am of course, but not as one thinks!!)….and thank you Kartik for suggesting the correction.
    2) For Raj in Kampala, Uganda, pl. e-mail me on ashokdave_52@yahoo.com
    3) I really am thankful both to Neelam Doshi-a very good friend of mine and yes….Darshak is pretty right…I did wandered a lot on Scooter with him to “Strengthen” the Ambanis, once upon a time. Oh vow…I didn’t know the Canadians are so lucky to have you with them. Darshak is a versatile Classically trained singer. Aadarniy Sumantbhai Vashi knows more about me than even I do. Such is his love for me.
    4) The number of books written by me goes to 18 now. Please make corrections, if you can.
    5) May God Bless All of You From my worst articles, that appears once in a while.
    - Ashok Dave.

    Suu Kyo Cho Dadu!!!

    After a lots of effort, and sending large number of emails to Gujarat Samachar (among which, none of them was replied by GS)… finally I found your email.

    Let me introduce myself… I am sure you definitely have forgotten … its not your mistake… we just met once or twice…

    I am Jignesh Solanki… In the year 2000/2001, when Mrs. Haki was visiting ‘Boston’s Computer Institute’ at Vijay Char Rasta, Ahmedabad… I was one of the faculty over there…who taught Windows Basics to Mam. I was being introduced to you by Mr. Udayan Vyas…we both are great fan of yours.

    I am working @ Adobe Systems, Inc. San Francisco, CA. But I never miss any single article of ‘Budhvar Ni Bapor’… Actually I got to read that article even before Gujarat reads… as I used to read it on Tuesday Afternoon (which is Tuesday midnight in India…and gujaratsamachar.com site is updated with new articles) :) :) I am lucky to read it before any one reads it in Gujarat….

    I am inspired a lot with your humour… and with minimum changes (to adjust fun for translating in English), I used to spread simillar humour in the office & other our Indian community :) :)… Balle Balle….

    Dadu, please reply karjo, tamara reply ni print-out laminate karavi ne mara ghar ma latkavish… Pls Pls reply dear dadu….

    With Best Regards….

    Hie All,
    I am Ashok Dave again to thank all those who read my articles and send their feedback, which is always essential to me.
    I don’t know who runs this websight, ’cause inspite of drawing their attention to correct many wrong information about me, there are no rectifications either on my birth-year (which is 1952 and NOT 1929), the musical club, BASED ON THE VINTAGE FILM SONGS I have been running in Amdavad is FARMAISH CLUB and not Harmonium or a Tablaa-Dholak Club. The address should also be corrected.
    ….and for my readers, I shall reply any of your questions here or even on my ashokdave_52@yahoo.com

    બહુ મોટી આશા સાથે મેં ઉપર બતાવેલી લિન્ક પર જઈને જોયુ પણ ઍક આંચકો લાગ્યો.
    મોટરસાઈકલ ના ટાયર નું પંકચર સાંધવાની રીત નો વીડિયો બતાવીને ઍમ કહે છે કે શ્રી અશોક દવે ના ઇન્ટરવ્યૂ નો વીડિયો છે?
    સાવ આવું?
    આ વીડિયો નું ટાઈટલ છે – “Video of Two Wheeler’s Tyre puncture being repaired at a roadside local Two Wheeler Repairing Centre in Rajkot City.”.

    કુલ 7 મિનિટ અને 9 સેકન્ડ નો વીડિયો છે ઍમ બતાવે છે.
    વીડિયો નો હોય તો ના પાડી દ્યો મારા વાલા પણ આમ ખોટી આશાઓ ના જગાવો બેઠા બેઠા.

    Dear Ashok Dave saheb,
    I used to be an English medium student and my father always insisted me to learn Gujarati, so he gave me this habit of reading your article “Budhvaar Ni Bapor” in Gujarat Samachar. Today I can read, write and speak very good Gujarati!!!
    Thank you for your Excellent Articles

    Ashokbhai,
    Today I have read about Tanuja written by you in Gujarat Samachar. I really apreciate what you have written about the forgotten star. The way you have explained everything about her is wonderful. The interesting thing is not what you have written about her but your presentation in the artical. You have knack of writing something beautifully with little comic sense in artical.
    Anyway you are wonderful writer.

    Since divyabhaskar has been launched in gujarat, I started that instead of Gujarat Samachar. But attraction of encounter in GS is such that when every sunday I visit my parent’s place (may be at 10 in the night sometime ), my Dady offers me GS to go through encounter first and then we talk of evrything else.

    I regularly read all the three columns namely encounter, budhwar ni bapore and film India.Ihave also read your earlier columns on indian old film music etc.I gather that you love old hindi film songs than comedy work of your own.Though I like your sense of humor as well as your taste and deep knowledge of music.Like you i am also fond of old hindi film songs for the period 1943 to 1970.I was a member of Farmaish Club Rajkot when you were anchor but after you quit that club I also ceased my membership.Since you an ardent lover of music I recommend you to please listen stage show placed on YouTube by typing Kala Ankur Smaran series Ajmer and you will find many of the old songs performed on stage by the young and old artist and superb orchestra.Like wise if you be a menber of the website http://www.meragana.com, you can sing your choicest songs on Karaoke….Anil Bhatt Rajkot

    I have not read any articles of Sri Ashok Dave. But I had a friend named Ashok Dave in earstwhile Bihar( now jHARKHAND),stuidied and played a lot of cricket in Sixties. He had migrated to Gujarat long back and there was no communication whatsoever. I am told that he is the same person. Please confirm whether I am right.

    I WAS A REGULAR READER OF ” BUDHVAAR NI BAPORE” DURING MY EDUCATION PERIOD. (IT WAS EXTENDED UPTO 24 YEARS!!). THEN ONWARDS IT IS NOT A REGULAR HABIT BUT I GENERALLY READ IT. (OF COURSE FOR SUNDAY’S eNCOUNTER I MANAGE TO READ IT ANYHOW, AND FRIDAY’S REVIEW ON MOVIE). IT WAS MY HOSTEL LIFE TIME (1986 – 1994). I USED TO LAUGH EVEN LOUDLY, WHEN I READ “BUDHVAAR NI BAPORE” EARLY IN THE MORNING. I SURPRISED WHEN ONE OF THE STUDENT REMARKED ON MY LOUD LAUGHTER THAT ” SHU VAAT CHHHE, AAJE BUDHVAAR CHHE!! , MY LAUGHTER REMNIDED HIM THE PARTICULAR DAY!!)

    • Ashwin June 30, 2013 at 8:56 am

      DR. TONY ALMEIDA ( Bombay Kidney Speciality expert ) made the extensive
      experiments with perseverance and patience and discovered a successful treatment for diabetes.
      Now a days a lot of people, old men & women in particular suffer a lot due to Diabetes.

      Ingredients:
      1 – Wheat flour 100 gm
      2 – Gum(of tree) (gondh) 100 gm
      3 – Barley 100 gm
      4 – Black Seeds (kalunji) 100 gm

      Method of Preparation Put all the above ingredients in 5 cups of water.
      Boil it for 10 minutes and put off the fire. Allow it to cool down by itself.
      When it has become cold, filter out the seeds and preserve the water in a glass jug or bottle.

      How to use it?

      Take one small cup of this water every day early morning when your stomach is empty.
      Continue this for 7 days. Next week repeat the same but on alternate days. With these 2 weeks of treatment you
      will wonder to see that you have become normal and can eat normal food without problem.

      Note: A request is to spread this to as many as possible so that others can also take benefit out of it.
      SPB MESSAGE
      SINCE THESE ARE ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS, TAKING THEM IS NOT HARMFUL. SO THOSE WHO ARE SCEPTICAL ABOUT THIS TREATMENT MAY STILL TRY IT WITHOUT ANY HARM.

      • Manish Rathod August 14, 2013 at 4:48 am

You won’t believe but ‘m an ardent female fan of Rafi Sa’ab too..Visit Rafi mandir on Jayanti or Tithi at Indraprasth as well..Your knowledge about Rafiji,music,movies and most artists is sooo vast that it makes me “oh to em vat hati?”….Like it all.Keep sharing and writing.

    આપના દર શુક્રવારના લેખ હું નિયમિત રીતે વાંચું છું. હમણાં છેલ્લા ત્રણ શુક્રવારથી અમદાવાદના થીયેટરો અંગે આપના લેખો વાંચવાની ઘણી મજા પડે છે. હું જન્મે અને કર્મે અમદાવાદી (જન્મ માંડવીની પોળ, અને ત્રીસ વર્ષ સુધી રહેવાસી દેવની શેરી) છું. આપે જણાવેલા બધા થીયેટરોમાં મેં મારા મિત્રો સાથે ચલચિત્રો જોયેલ છે. લાઈટ હાઉસમાં ફર્ઝ પડેલ તો બીજી બાજુ રૂપમમાં ઉપકાર પડેલ. બંને ચિત્રો અમે જોયેલ. તે સમયમાં અમે જીતલા પાછળ ગાંડા હતા. જયારે ફિલ્મોની પટ્ટીઓ લડાવતા ત્યારે અમારો એક મિત્ર પીયુષ મેહતા (અત્યારે યુકો બેંક આશ્રમ રોડમાં નોકરી) જીતલાનું ફક્ત ડોકું હોય તો પણ તેને પાસ કરી દેતો. જીતુ અંગે તેની સલાહ હતી કે તે બિલ્ડીંગ ઉપરથી પણ કુદકા મારી શકે છે કારણકે તે મોરારજી જ્યુસ પીએ છે. અમે તેની સલાહ માનીને તેવું જ કરવાના હતાં પણ આપનું સદનસીબ કે તેવું ના કર્યું અને આજે આપના લેખો વાંચીએ છીએ. નહિ તો આપની દશા ખરાબ હોત. અશોકમાં મારા મિત્ર સાથે મેં ઘણા મફત ચિત્રો જોયેલ છે જેમાંના મહત્વના કહી શકાય તેવા ગાઈડ, વહાં કે લોગ, પરદે કે પીછે, ચાઈના ટાઉન, રાની મેરા નામ વગેરે હતા. તે વખતે એક નવિનભાઈ તેના મેનેજર હતા જે મારા મિત્રના પપ્પાના નજીકના મિત્ર હતા. ઈંગ્લીશ ટોકીઝમાં અમે કોહરા જોવા ગયેલ જેમાં ચિત્ર કરતા વધારે પાછળની સીટમાંથી પાપડ ની વધારે બીક લાગતી હતી. દર બેસતા વર્ષને દિવસે અમારી પોળમાંથી લગભગ ૨૧ જણા ધોતિયા પહેરીને શમ્મીકપૂરનું એન ઈવનીંગ ઈન પેરીસ જોવા જતા. પોળમાં મહત્વના જોયેલા ચિત્રોમાં દિલ દેકે દેખો, કાનુન, કાબુલીવાલા વગેરે હતા. આજે પણ તે જમાનો મને યાદ આવે છે. યાદ તાજી કરવા દર રવિવારે આ બધા વિસ્તારોમાં હજી પણ જઉં છું. તે વખતે બાલક્ન્જી બારી પણ ચિત્રો બતાવતી હતી તેવું મને યાદ છે. ગાંધી રોડ ઉપરની અમારી નગીના પોળની ગલીમાં બીજા નંબરે આવેલી દુકાન વિજય વોચ કું. માં હું બેસતો ત્યારે કલ્પના સિનેમામાં પણ મેં ઘણા ચિત્રો જોયેલ છે. તે વખતના જમાના પાસે અત્યારનો જમાનો ઘણો ઝાંખો લાગે છે.

    મેં આપને રૂબરૂ ફક્ત એક વાર જયારે અમારો કંપની સેક્રેટરીનો કાર્યક્રમ (ચીનુભાઈ સેન્ટર, આશ્રમ રોડ) હતો ત્યારે જોયેલ અને સાંભળેલ છે. ઘણા વખતથી લખવાનું મન થતું હતું પણ આળસ આવતી હતી. હું પણ અમદાવાદ કોમર્સ કોલેજની જ પેદાશ છું. જયારે મારા નજીકના મિત્રોએ એફ.વાય. બી.કોમ. પછી અંગ્રેજી માધ્યમ છોડી ગુજરાતી માધ્યમમાં પરત ગયેલ ત્યારે મેં એસ. વાય. બી. કોમ.માં એક ચેલેન્જ તરીકે ગુજરાતી માધ્યમમાંથી અંગ્રેજી માધ્યમ પસંદ કરેલ. ત્યાર બાદ મારો નાતો ફક્ત અંગ્રેજી સાથે જ રહેલ છે. સી. એસ. અને એલ.એલ.બી. (સ્પે.) પણ અંગ્રેજી માધ્યમમાં પસાર કરેલ છે. અમદાવાદ કોમ. કોલેજની ખાસિયત હતી કે અંગ્રેજી માધ્યમમાં ક્લાસ ચલાવતા હોવા છતાં પુઅર બોયસ લાઇબ્રેરીમાં ચોપડીઓ ફક્ત ગુજરાતી માધ્યમમાં જ મળતી હતી. આમ મારા ભવ્ય અંગ્રેજીનો વારસો નાખવા પાછળ તેનો અમૂલ્ય ફાળો કહી શકાય. ભલું થજો ગુજરાતી શ્રુતિ ફોન્ટનાં બનાવનારાનું કે આ પત્ર આપને હું ગુજરાતીમાં લખી શક્યો. નહીતો મારે અન્ય મિત્રની મદદ લેવી પડત.

    હવે જયારે થીયેટરો વિષેની લેખમાળા પૂર્ણ થાય ત્યાર બાદ પોળોમાં તે વખતે દર્શાવેલ ચિત્રો વિષે પણ જયારે સમય મળે ત્યારે લખવા વિનંતી.

    Hon’ble Shri Ashokbhai

    Hearty obeisance from Anil Parmar. I have been a regular reader of your articles on old movies appearing every Friday in Gujarat Samachar. I fondly remember the happy days (no, years) of that time. I am a product of centre of the city, Dev Ni Sheri, Manvi Ni Pole, Ahmedabad. I am a young boy of only 56 (born 10th January 1957). I minutely remember a number of movies seen by me in the theatres you mention. I have seen ‘HUMRAAZ’ of Rajkumar, Sunil Datt 21 times and Farz nine times. In fact, one of our friends Piyush Mehta (now with UCO Bank, Ashram Road Branch) was so mad after Jitendra that when among the various actors at that time, he always used to pass the film tape of Jitendra only. He also believed that only because he was using Morarji Juice, he could jump from the high buildings in movies. We were also convinced and were about to experiment at that time. HOWEVER, IT IS YOUR GOOD LUCK THAT WE DID NOT DO SO. OTHERWISE, WHO WILL READ YOUR INVALUABLE ARTICLES? WHO WILL REMEMBER SUCH OLD TIMES? Important movies seen by me along with my friends are – Farz in Light House, Upkar in Rupam, Saadhu Aur Shaitan in Prakash (in which only after selling on ticket in Lower Stall, window closed and we had to purchase ticket of Re.1 in black for Re.1.25 (25% more) which amount we all had borrowed from one of our friends as we had only Re.1 in our pocket. Soon after purchase of ticket, audience came out of theatre, so we immediately rushed inside. Only within two-three minutes there was a dark in the theatre, and we saw Mehmood madly dancing on the bonnet of the taxi. My friend who was experienced in this field, expressed a great surprise by telling એડ. બી નહિ બતાવી અને મહેમુદને સીધો ટેક્ષી ઉપર બતાવ્યો. પિક્ચર બી જલ્દી ચાલુ થઇ ગયું. આપણે મોડા પડ્યા. When some of us tried to search seat numbers allotted to us in tickets, some spectators were already sitting on those seats. Where the seats were vacant, some of us occupied them. We heard some people in the theatre telling સાલા ઇન્ટર તક તો મૈને પિકચર દેખી ઔર યે મેરી સીટ પર કયું બૈઠા હૈ. This created a lot of hue and cry. They approached Lala as to how such a thing could happen? Lala came to us and shouted by calling us bad names “સાલે ઇન્ટરમેં ઘૂસ આયે, તુમ્હારા શો તો બાદમેં હૈ. We realised the grave mistake we had committed and immediately came out of theatre. Still we remember this incident.

    Sir, like you, I am also a product of Ahmedabad College (1974-77) during which I studied under scholarly faculty like Brij Mohan Khosla (English), J.J Purohit (master in Economics), R.M. Shah (master in Accounts) and some others. I took my primary education (1-4 std.) in a Municipal School (Kansara Pol and Gatradni Pol) and thereafter studies in one of the best (?) schools namely New Sarvodaya High School where too I got a number of good teachers. One Shri C.V. Shah always used to ask me to teach English Grammar to other students. Even the weekly papers also used to be got checked by me.

    My all friends who had joined English Medium from Pre Commerce (in H.L. College) did not have to face exam because of Navnirman in 1974. After experience in F.Y. in 1975, they switched over to Gujarati Medium. As a challenge, I switched over to English Medium from S.Y. Commerce. However, PBL of the college had only Gujarati Medium books which I got. Question of guides does not arise at all. I started translating those books in English which laid a foundation of good English for me. Thus, the credit for whatever knowledge I am having in the English language goes to Ahmedabad Commeerce College. This practice has taught me to instantly translate material from Gujarati to English with much ease and comfort and with less mistake.

    Sir, I had an opportunity to have interaction with you in one of the C.S. functions wherein you had delivered a lecture to the participating members of C.S. at Chinubhai Centre, Ashram Road (might around 8-10 years back?).

    I hope and wish, after completion of your articles on the old theatres, you write about the movies presented at that time in various Pols and the atmosphere prevailing at that time.

    Sincerely

    Anil Parmar

    Sir, I have a pen drive containing around 1000 old songs (between 1945 and 1970). If you wish, can share the same with you.

      Upload it to dropbox. It can be interesting to share with all people who are really interested in vintage songs. Just send dropbox link to concerned people’s email id. So they can download at their ease and anywhere.

      • anil himmatlal parmar October 21, 2013 at 1:17 am

        Respected Radhikaji
        While thanking you very much for your quick response and suggestion, I could not follow the meaning of sending dropbox link. The songs are in bulk and are in pen drive. If it is possible to send them online, I shall be happy to do so. Kindly guide me.

        Sincerely

    પ્રિય અશોકભાઈ,
    આજનો લેખ અમારા જૂના દિવસો યાદ કરાવી ગયો. જો કે હું તમારા કરતા બે વર્ષે જ મોટો છું. પૈસા બચાવવા અમે પણ રૂપિયા વળી લાઈનમાં ઉભા રહેતાં. તેમાં વળી રીલીફ વાળો લાલો તો ચાર આના લઈને પાછળ વાળા વ્યક્તિને આગળ ઘુસાડતો. પિતાશ્રીનાકડક સ્વભાવના કારણે કોલેજમાંથી ગુલ્લી મારીને પિક્ચર જોયા છે. ખાસ લખવાનું કે તમારા રાજાસુબા સાહેબ મારા સગા બનેવી થાય. ઘણું બધું લખવું છે, પણ તમારો કીમતી સમય નથી બગાડવો.
    આભાર.
    જયદેવ વ્યાસ.

    શ્રી જયદેવભાઈ વ્યાસ
    અમે પણ રૂપિયા વાળી ટીકીટમાં ઘણા ચિત્રો જોયા છે. માણેકચોકની દેવની શેરીમાં રહીને શહેરના બધા થિયેટરમાં અસંખ્ય ચિત્રો મિત્રો સાથે જોયેલ છે. તેની સરખામણીમાં આજના ચિત્રો જોવાની જરા પણ મજા નથી. હજી પણ થાય છે કે પોળોમાં ચિત્રો બતાવે તો આજે પણ જોવા જઉં.
