I, ME, MYSELF: Raqesh Bapat!


Rangmunch: What is missing in your life at the moment?

Raqesh: Peace of mind because I am too much of a thinking person. My life is actually on a accelator mode, always moving on. I’m a very creative person and with that thought my mind runs in all direction all the time. I kinda wanna achieve everything before I leave this world.

Rangmunch: What would you change about yourself?

Raqesh: Again would like to change the fact that I think too much. I would like to put breaks on my thinking too much. Rest I’m very happy with the way things are. I think I’m God’s special child and I do feel blessed for what I have in life. Yes, I do get angry and at times it leads to a very drastic situation, so I would like to change that aspect of my life.

Rangmunch: What is your biggest fear?

Raqesh: My biggest fear is the fear of losing my talent. I’m a painter and a sculptur. The day I can’t do any of those things is the day I would completely  freak out. So yes, the biggest fear is losing what I love to do.

Rangmunch: What is the craziest thing you have done for your wife?

Raqesh: Well, its not been long since we have been married. But I love to surprise her. Since her birthday happened a while back, I thought of gifting her  a new wardrobe. She keeps complaining that I have more clothes than her, so finally she has no reasons to complain now (smiling at her).

(Ridhi Dogra, his wife who was right next to him, said he shops all clothes for her. Its  obvious that she is completely in love with her husband. Her smile says it all. She also further reveals that he has amazing tastes in clothes and that she totally enjoys being pampered by him )

Rangmunch: So do you let other people’s negativity affect you?

Raqesh: No, not at all. I personally feel there is no negative elements in the world unless you let them happen. It is very important to be positive as there is loads of negative vibes all around one self. Your mind is like a sponge which absorbs all good and discards all bad. I really connect and disconnect  very fast. If the aura and vibes around me  are  not healthy, I would not let myself be in that situation.

Rangmunch : Do you stand up for yourself?

Raqesh: Always… rather all the time. One should fight for the right cause. Its their natural right in doing so. I also stand up for the people whom I love. I can’t take injustice.

Rangmunch: What are you proud of?

Raqesh: I’m proud to have great people around me. Be it friends or family, I’m very proud of that fact. I do fight with them but in the end I love them a lot.

Rangmunch: Do you read a lot?

Raqesh: No, I do not. As a child I suffered great dyslexia. Reading was a problem and I used to find words all jumbled up. Infact I have given most of my exams orally. My mom, being a teacher helped me understand a lot orally cause that was very easily comprehended.

Rangmunch: The movie ‘Taare Zameen Par’ must be very close to your heart?

Raqesh: Oh yes!!! I was exactly like Eshaan. It was shocking when I saw that film. Its like me in the movie (laughing it out).

Rangmunch: Do you take time out for yourself?

Raqesh: All the time. As I said I do a lot of painting and many other extra activities. So ya, I do definitely take time out for myself. I keep my mind pro-active all the time so that helps too.

Rangmunch: One thing you are grateful for in life?

Raqesh: This life for sure. I’m grateful to God for giving me this life. 

That was Raqesh Bapat aka Aditya of  Maryada…Lekin Kab Tak on Star Plus. Hope you enjoyed getting to know him a little bit more. We promise to get more from this Maryada camp!

     hand next year.

·    Introspect, find out the reason for your lack of interest, and go about correcting them.
·    Ignore the feeling and go about your work as best as you can. After all, you are being paid for it.

News Bar: The Week Back and Forth…!

Rangmunch.TV is once again back with the weekly snippets of your favourite shows!!!

Sasural Genda Phool (Star Plus): Try try till you succeed is Eshwar’s motto these days. Eshwar is trying even harder than before to get accepted back but is failing miserably. Even the accident doesn’t bring out the soft and sympathetic side in his Bauji. However, the accident manages to stir the wifely concern in Shaileja. A very interesting and meaning full interaction is seen between Shaileja and Rano where Shaileja tries to comprehend and assimilate her feelings for Eshwar. She questions this concern and is baffled by her ranging emotions towards the man who deserted her two decades back. On the other hand Suhana and Ishaan are trying to find answers to questions pertaining to Sona. Ishaan is all confused with Sona’s attitude and temperament. Lets see where the answers lie. Hope all gets sorted out and good times knock on the doors of our Kashyap family.

Dharampatni (Imagine TV): This week Kastur’s mother-in-law, Saroj, openly admits to Kastur that she hates her and will never accept her as her daughter-in-law. Though this admission leaves Kastur shell-shocked for a while, she recovers soon based on what she had learnt from her grandmother that love conquers all, even ones who are filled with hatred. A moment of awww was witnessed at the way Kastur promptly tries to put her restless husband to sleep in the dead of the night by singing a old song – udan khatola. And yes, it worked! Mohan went to sleep in a jiffy listening to Kastur’s soothing voice and his forehead being lovingly stroked by the gentle hand of Kastur. Double Awwww!! It was a cute moment filled with her devotion for her husband, her innocence, and her belief that she can and will do anything to provide comfort for her husband. After all isn’t this virtue what makes her a dharampatni? 
Yet another layer of Mohan is revealed during this week that he is heavily into gambling. While Mohan softens towards Kastur forming the lighter moments of the show, his past soon catches up with him in the form of the fake degree that is submitted for application of loan at his father-in-law’s friend’s firm. In the coming week, will Mohan be able to sidestep scrutiny and get the loan sanctioned? 
Uttran (Colors): Once again Tapasya and Nani’s idea to humiliate Iccha before the Bundela pariwaar fails miserably because Veer loves and trust Iccha more than anyone in this world. Even though he is disappointed with Iccha and Rathod for keeping him in the dark but he does not hold it against either of them. Meanwhile will Rathod get to know the truth behind the Ploice Raid and the person responsible for the same? Will he understand Tapasya’s insecurities as a woman and mother or hold it against her is what we need to see in the forth coming week.
Saath Nibhana Saathiya (Star Plus): Rashi just refuses to learn from her mistakes. She is hell bent on making situations worse for her. This week, Rashi and her scheming mother have plotted and pitched the ball called Kinjal and have declared a war with Kokila. No matter how estranged their relationship is, when it comes to the well being of her children, you cant touch the MOTHER LIONESS. With the ball in Kokila’s court, you just know she will hit a winner. Kinjal, though with this turn of events couldn’t be more happier and is showing signs of never going back to her sasural. But if she knows her mom, like we all do, Kokila will not let Kinjal stay more than a day and will pack her off to sasural. With this twist, will Rashi get an entry back in the Modi house? Will the mother daughter duo beat Kokila this time? Catch the ladies of the Modi Pariwar in action next week.
Hawan (Colors): Keerat or Atharva? Who will be the groom? This week, Keerat declares war by openly stating his love for Aastha. He manages to free himself from the clutches of the villagers and lands up at the mandap. The whole drama unveils when Keerat firmly reminds Baapji that he has given him the blessing to go ahead with his marriage plans. Atharva like a silent lover is watches all this because of his immense respect for his father. The BOMB explodes when Baapji tells both the would-be-grooms to race to the Devi ma’s mandir and get the sindoor. Who so ever gets the sindoor first will then marry Aastha. Both Keerat and Atharva get ready for the RACE of their life. To see who wins the the title of the GROOM, log on to a Monday episode of Hawan.
Maryada Lekin Kab Tak (Star Plus): Maryada is on a high point with Vidya, Gaurav and Chinu  triangle. Gaurav who has been missing for sometime is finally found and rescued by Aditya. Priya on the other hand is constantly trying to make  Chinu understand and let go of the Vidya obsession, as it will bring in a TORNADO in the house. But Chinu being the man in love refuses to listen to logic and is ready to do about anything to get his lady love. However, we know Vidya’s heart only lies with Gaurav. What will happen when all come face to face with Gaurav’s truth and Vidya’s dilemma? With the Maha episode being aired today, one can only wait and watch.

Balika Vadhu (Colors): Our Lady in distress, Anandi is finally freed from the clutches of the goons by none other than her Jagiya. Jagiya’s immense faith in Anandi and his quick presence of mind saved Anandi from her tormentors. Even though Jagiya and Anandi are no longer living together as a couple but their souls are connected. As Anandi breathed a sigh of relief on seeing Jagiya and embraced him, the moment definitely left the viewers with teary eyes and a deep sigh. Will Anandi and her family find out the mastermind behind this abduction? Will Jagiya’s faith in Anandi create further rift between him and Gouri? Well watch it to know it!
