UG left my Father with A Taste of Life: Daughter Matters

June 27, 2009

Pooja, daughter of Mahesh Bhatt, says, “finally UG has left my father with a taste of life.” Today Mahesh Bhatt is a much mellowed down, changed man – and now the never before heard small acts of flowers falling on his cheeks, and a dog wagging his/her tail, are of more life-juicy, significance and senseful. With the series of the lauching of his newly released book, “A Taste of Life: the last days of UG”, Mahesh Bhatt is at his best, serving straight the ‘taste of life’ and there by demystifying the shackles of fraudulently held holy world of myths like gods, sermons, and the gurus; and saying that ‘the only meaning of life is LIFE’. Perhaps, the best tribute we may pay to UG is to never to make him another God, but to Undo God (UG). You may listen to a few words of Pooja Bhatt, straight from her heart, on a recent launch of this book there on this video clip accessible on Youtube:

A Taste of Life by Mahesh Bhatt – excerpt

June 10, 2009

Yes, it’s released now! Here’s the video clip of the launch of the much awaited Mahesh Bhatt’s book, A TASTE OF LIFE: THE LAST DAYS OF UG, on YouTube. You may listen to some of the excerpts of this strange book straight from the ‘monster mouth’ of Mahesh:

Book on ‘UG’ my most defining work: Mahesh Bhatt

Here are some of the excerpts of expressions made by Mahesh Bhatt, in the context of the release of his bigger than life dream book on UG – ‘A Taste of Life’, as given under the news item link: http://sify.com/movies/fullstory.php?id=14893340

“It was like fire—lava—coming out of my belly on the paper. The book was not an exercise in flashing my writing skills, it was a sense of awe and wonder that drove me to write the book.”

“This is the most defining work of my life, even bigger than my movies.”

“He (UG) was like a blossom in the wilderness which bloomed, withered and then crumbled—the one that was there on a universal plane and yet not there—kind of ephemeral.”

“UG, the anti-guru who deconstructed the myth about men playing gods, was like a wildflower who chose to die unsung.”

“What struck me was UG’s simplicity and honesty that stripped spirituality of its divine pretences.”

UG used to say ‘I am not a godman, I would rather be called a fraud’.

“I had the privilege to be with him in life witnessing his staggering experiences and even in death which I describe as the taste of life because it removed the morbidity that one associates with death like the wind blowing on a landscape where bloom and decay were all one.”

“On the morning of March 22, I saw thousands of black ants marching in a line on the white carpet, up the white sofa and on UG’s stone-like face where they spread out and completely darkened the left side. There were thousands of them moving with the frantic intensity of life. I remembered someone asking him some time ago what the ants were doing in his room. UG had replied they were ‘coming for me’…”
