31:1 last day of jan ‘17 and i’ve finally decided to post again😭i apologise for the long absence, just busy getting my arse kicked by school. i’ll be answering your asks this week, just bare with me. how is everyone?! here’s last weeks spread!
Our March #KeepHerInTheGame Campaign is our most ambitious plan yet. We hope you’ll help us make it our most successful too!
Campaign Dates: March 1st- March 31st
We are sending FOX executives Dana Walden, Gary Newman, and Tony Tompson baseballs. Most of you by now are probably familiar with the names Dana Walden and Gary Newman. Just a reminder that they are the final decision makers over at the network. The fate of Pitch literally lies in their hands. Tony Tompson may be a new name to you. Tony is VP of Drama Development & Programming and without his work, Pitch would’ve never made it to our television screens. Tony is an extremely important person to target right now and we want to make sure to also show him how much we want the show back.
Dana and Gary are the priority to send baseballs to.
If you are sending more than one baseball, we urge you to consider sending at least one baseball to Tony separately.
Write on your baseballs #KeepHerInTheGame, #RenewPitch, and whatever other hashtags tickle your fancy. Please remember to be respectful. No demands.
We asked you guys for some suggestions and here’s what you said:
#Team Sanders/Fav player
#PitchStreetTeam (no we did not add this one ourselves XD)
Some Pitches are planning on sending their baseballs in bubble mailers or flat rate boxes from the post office. These are just suggestions to give you an idea how to ship them off, but you can do whatever works best for you!
Please include a small note asking FOX to donate the baseballs to the local Boys & Girls club in your packages.
If you are shipping baseballs directly from amazon.com please include a small note with your shipment with the hashtags #KeepHerInTheGame and #RenewPitch & a request to donate the baseballs.
Our first goal is to send the network 500 baseballs obviously the more the merrier but one step at a time, folks. Pitch Street Team is keeping track of the numbers bc #DATA. Please help us to do this by filling out the baseballs form!
From now until February 28th we are asking if you are planning on sending baseballs that you fill out the Baseball PLEDGE form.
Starting March 1st we ask that you track the baseballs that you have actually sent in the Baseball TRACKING form.
Address your baseball packages to:

We’re the ones on the mound right now. US. We throw the balls.
Birthday - EF - Valentina Ivanovna/Ef Sourav Banerjee … and so we celebrate the birthdays of two of our own today the 31 st of January .. my wishes .. as also the wishes of the entire Ef family .. love and happiness always ..
There is no wonder, no astonished embrace, that likens your interest in days gone by .. ideally we profess that we need to look ahead instead of back .. but when we get reminded by the gallant efforts of some of our dear Ef, we commit ourselves to acknowledge, what we may never have done or remembered .. so while the memory lasts and lasts well .. a revert to those times and events ..
rehearsing for a stage show .. location .. on a stage of course .. but but .. no .. where and which city or country unknown .. could obviously be out of India, looking at these lovely ladies rehearsing with me .. but where ..?
Concerts and my involvement in them began and was initiated by me in 1981/83 .. Lata ji, the goddess of song and music was on a tour of the US in 1981 .. in those days concerts included a stage show of our Music Directors along with their play back singers and a limited orchestra who would perform live of stage with their film music .. that was it .. no artists went .. or were called .. or were ever asked to perform .. at the most on a rare occasion, if a prominent artist happened to be in the country of the concert on a private visit, they would oblige the music director by coming on to the stage and introducing the show .. no more .. a few seconds and out ..
Lata ji, came to know that I was either visiting New York, or was there and requested me to come and introduce her on stage .. INTRODUCE, Lata Mangeshkar .. !!! Goodness, that was like having the audacity to introduce the world to the Sun .. But .. there it is .. I went to meet her at her rehearsal in NYC .. she as always was extremely warm affectionate and welcoming .. and threw a bomb .. !
I had recently just recorded my song from Lawaris ‘mere angane mein..’, rather badly, for Prakash ji, and Lata ji knew of it. She asked me to sing that song for her show ..
ME ..? sing a song at a Lata Mangeshkar Show .. ???!!!!!
NOOOOOOOOO .. !! Lata ji , this will not be possible .. I am no singer no .. bad idea .. please please let me go … Mummy !!! I want to go home .. !!!!
But she did not relent and I was on ..
The introduction happened .. and then a while later back on stage - the Felt Forum , a 3500, smaller auditorium seater in the main Madison Square Garden - and ‘mere angane mein ..’
AND … errmm hmmm .. kind of .. MAYHEM MMM .. !! People dancing in the aisles, some ladies the younger lot climbing on to the stage .. and well, smart managers brain ticking and next thing they have organised an entire 12 city concert only for AB ..
That was the initiation of the Film Industry shows on stage .. and look what it has become today .. or did thereafter .. I stopped after 1983 .. too much apprehension and too scared to get up there and perform .. playing to crowds on immense magnitude in foreign lands when they are so used to seeing the greats in their own country and of such professional and creative talents .. but it happened .. New York the big Madison Square Garden, New Jersey and the Giants Stadium, LA, Sfciso, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, Houston, London, Amsterdam, Trinidad & Tobago, Durban, Johannesburg, Far East, Middle East .. just endless ..
LIVE on stage with a film artist was never done before .. so me singing dancing, dialogues, the works .. was a first .. then all the industry followed .. the magnitude of Madison Square, Giants Stadium, Wembley Stadium, Toronto Leafs, Durban Football .. these were locations never done before and done to capacity - some day this needs to be talked of at length ..
Why do I get the feeling that I have already disclosed this before .. hmm ..
Shows on stage opened up an entire industry .. performers, dancers, creatives for stage design, managers and event company’s .. which then transferred all that to the film Award shows, shows on stage for launches, of various non film events too .. product launches, brands, the entire works .. dancing schools for dancers, stage management lighting creatives etc ., its an entire industry now .. marriages and sangeets … ufff .. just endless ..
Dear me .. what a lot of writing on just one random photograph ..
…. and this .. the Indian winner of the Heavy Weight Boxing division of the 1982 Asian Games, in Delhi .. they asked me present him the Gold Medal .. an honour and a great privilege .. I sat and cheered him on at the event .. I was in a farm in Delhi convalescing after my 1982 COOLIE accident .. had also given my voice over for the Asian Games introduction commentary that was played at the opening ceremony ..
The pose is a copy of what Muhammad Ali, the Greatest boxer ever, did to me, and many others that met him, when I went to Ali’s Beverly Hills home in Los Angeles on a private visit …
… and this is with Premji .. the very prominent Producer of the times .. he produced .. MAJBOOR .. the film where I suffer a brain illness .. either the films’ Premiere, or another public function .. wearing dark glasses at night was another deliberate attempt at just getting ‘cunny’ ( pronounced “kan_nii” a hindi colloquial term, meaning trying desperately to be smart !!! ) .. hehehahaha !
For now its packers .. see ya later .. perhaps .. !!??

woodwork. Batman calls them amateur nights.”
