Starry Starry Night – Tribute to Sushant Singh Rajput

Jun 17 2020

On very special request byย Varunaย whose love for Vincent van Gogh, Starry Starry Night painting and this Song “Vincent” by Don McLean is known well to me for last 5 yrs. So I decided to record this before I slept tonight. I first heard this song in 2002 and have always liked the vivid poetry of the song. Death, you mighty warrior, you don’t scare me. Come take me any day but until then I’ll live.

Purely sung by memory after many yrs. Thank you Universe for the memory, the tune and whatever voice I carry. Hope you like the attempt.

Every death leaves a void in life of someone. It doesn’t matter who or why anymore once the person is gone. The more I read about Sushant Singh Rajput, more I discover how much common interests we both shared. I’ve always been told that my interests are STRANGE. ๐๐ฎ๐ญ ๐Š๐ซ๐ข๐ฒ๐š ๐˜๐จ๐ ๐š, ๐‚๐„๐‘๐, ๐Œ๐จ๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž ๐‚๐จ๐๐ž, ๐Ÿ’-๐œ๐ฅ๐š๐ฉ ๐๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ก๐ฎ๐ฉ, ๐Š๐š๐ข๐ฅ๐š๐ฌ๐ก, ๐€๐ฎ๐ซ๐จ๐ซ๐š ๐๐จ๐ซ๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐ฌ, ๐Ÿ”-๐ฉ๐š๐œ๐ค, ๐‰๐ฎ๐ง๐ ๐ฅ๐ž ๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ž, ๐“๐ž๐ฅ๐ž๐ฌ๐œ๐จ๐ฉ๐ž, ๐•๐ข๐ฏ๐ž๐ค๐š๐ง๐š๐ง๐๐š ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฅ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ ๐จ๐ž๐ฌ ๐จ๐ง!

I have had very close association with Depression and Darkness of the Mind. It’s something that is often taken lightly and scoffed at by our society. There are some geniuses who are quick to label this as a generational trait and talk about “how our forefathers lived a happy life”. Depression is REAL, it’s been around since Humanity existed. It raises its head in different forms in each age in each individual in a very unique way. Everyone is fighting their own demons. Not everyone is depressed because of a job or a relationship.

The unfortunate step that Sushant Singh Rajput took, drove me to know more about the man, how he fought depression and was left alone by his loved ones and the Movie Industry. Riches and Glamor do not make anyone immortal.

It’s strange how some people define depression by riches as if it takes away their right to be Human. Like the famous Sage of Himalayas, Swami Rama said “Just because someone is a Swami, does not mean he’s not Human anymore”.

    Hi Gautam, I am new to your website, just discovered it today. Reading about your and your wife’s many solo adventure trips, it promted me to ask you – do you have kids? Also Varuna s blog is not functioning I guess. I was keen to read other parts of her Kailash Mansarovar Yatra. Where can I read the complete details of her KMY? Please reply. Thanks
