Hey guys how have you all been? I haven't been on here for a while now so just checked out all things and updates as u do once you've not been on here for a while you know what I mean hehehe
Well some of you may know that I was going to the Asian Lifestyle show on the 15th of July which was yesterday! So yep you're right!!! I saw Mr. Raghav finally hehe after a long wait I think it was one day to surely be remembered for a lifetime now!
So for you girlies here I'll tell you my once upon a time story about how I met Mr. Raghav. (Oh and not forgetting the guys too hehe ;) )
So once upon a time there was this tomato aka me aarti hehe lol and she wasn't all that much of a big fan of Mr Raghav because she didn't know much about him but she had seen him at the Belgrave mela in Leicester when he was first out on the mainstream of the music industry.
So time went on and tomato had forgotten about Raghav as a person in the sense that heís quite a handsome and good looking guy. I guess you guys and girls already know that but you see I was into his music more than I was into him.
Then tomato went through a rough time in life in 2005 and she had decided to listen to Raghavís music and help he get through the though times because she was slowly able to sing the words to the songs and understood their meanings and emotions that Mr. Raghav was expressing about the experiences he went through in life!
And anyway getting to the point Raghav helped tomato a lot in everyway possible and so Ďsheí (ironically tomato is a she as she is me hehe lol) decided to do some research about this guy called Raghav.
She learnt many things about him and she had read a lot of interviews, watched many, heard othersí stories and started to collect pictures as she was getting seduced by his gorgeous heart as well as his beautiful face.
So time goes on and tomato is a major fan of Mr. Raghav, I use ĎMrí because I know of the deeds, the good deeds he does to helping human kind and all the community around as he has such immense power and authority in life today. He uses it wisely and respectfully.
As Aarti is head over heels about knowing about Mr. Raghav she decides to go and see him somewhere but she never thought that she would ever meet him. She knows heís a busy man and very much in demand but not ever will he be a celebrity as he is a human, technically speaking here. Hehe lol
So Aarti had the chance to meet and dine with him at the dinner and dance in Leicester on the 8th of April. Instead I decided to be with my best mate the week before she was off on holiday and have the time of our life. Staying up till 5am is her way of having the time of your life. Hehe
I await another moment for him to come and hopefully she will take the opportunity this time and you know what she did.
Adverts, posters, radio adverts everything you name it was talking about the Asian Lifestyle Show 2006. The guest list was great but there was one special guest tomato was looking out for and that was Mr. Raghav. He was surely going to be there.
Aarti had all his present ready and made some bling bling bracelets all by hand using approximately 20 to 25 thousand beads on many different styles of bracelets and the other gifts involved letters, personally designed gift box, creative writing and you name it the whole works.
I always thought I would not have the chance to ever meet and greet someone so adorable and passionate about what he wants to achieve in life but the fact that along with the status he has he uses it for good causes. Working with the Kidney Research foundation, NSPCC, Tsunami appeal and much, much more, this person was turning out to be my prince charming in real life.
Itís the day of the 15th of July 2006. The time is 5 am in the morning and here starts my long awaited journey to meet the one and the only for a life time to cherish, My Mr Raghav.
As I wake up I have a smile on my face as the day was dawning and the light was bright. I do what everyone else does, you know brush your teeth have a shower, get ready have breakfast and youíre out of the house.
We get to the station, which takes us to London and then we get to the destination desired, The Olympia Hall, where all the stars will be and so will be Mr. Raghav Mathur.
Iím in this queue, well we sort of pushed into the queue because it was really busy there but it wasnít as crazy and it was sensible. Thanks to the help of my best mate we got in and I had to courage to go into. Normally if am not in the queue and I see a friend I would not push in. itís simply not fare on the othersí whoíve waited there for a long time. But sometimes I guess itís ok to do what I did. Hey it was probably the second time I did it hehe seriously. Jumping queues is not me.
Omar from View Asia was there too and he was asking the ladies as rather than the guys that who is Raghavís biggest fan and he spoke to a few ladies and they were all very cute. Then he asks the same question and my friend points to me and heís coming my way, me being shy and not the type to speak up that easily to the whole world was thinking to run away there and then. But I stood still obviously I was in the queue and two meters away literally from Mr. Raghav. How could I have ran at that very moment?!
Heís starts with the questions then
Omar:- so what do you like about Raghav?
Aarti: - I donít Ö know?!
(Puzzled in amazement that the whole hall was able to hear what I was saying. Feeling like am dimwit I carry on and respond. Well I did something right there?!)
Omar:- no come on thatís not a good enough answer, so why do you like Raghav?
Aarti: - He makes my mum dance
Omar:- he makes you mum dance?!!!
Aarti: - and sheís 55
Omar: - sheís 55
Aarti: - also my grandma
Omar: - sorry what did you say
Aarti: - my grandma
Aarti: - my grandma
(thinking to my self the words that come out of my mouth donít even make any sense what so ever! Hehe but I get courage to carry on! Finally Omar understands)
Omar: - He makes your grandma dance. Raghav is a universal person.
Omar: - so why are you Raghavís biggest fan?
Aarti:- Because I got him gifts
Omar: - You got him gifts! OK she has to be the best Raghav fan!
Girl: - I got him something.
Omar:- ok so now youíre saying you got him gifts too!
Girl:- yeah myself!
Omar: - No, no, no because she got gifts that are hand made you canít say youíre a gift for him!!!
Omar: She is Raghavís biggest fan.
(I was thinking thanks Omar for defending me!!! I needed it hehe lol)
Omar moves on
So am waiting eagerly for my turn. Itís my turn. Heart beat racing to a destination unknown to my own heart. What lay ahead was the on man I feel who is a true prince charming in my heart.
I pluck up all my courage and strength to see him and go there and give him his gifts for his birthday. I didnít know what to say to him how to behave around him. He is a character that burns my desire for my prince charming and surely one day I will find him. Hehe
Moving on I say hello to him how are you and heís smiling at me and Iím smiling at him. We both glare in to each otherís eyes and he had his shades on. Hehe you I bet he check out a lot of ladies like that because they cant see where his eyes are looking unless they are really close to him to the sun is shining. Hehe
Bit info for the ladies to check out there hehe lol
I say to him
Aarti: - Hey this Is for you for your birthday, Iím sorry itís late
Raghav: - You shouldnít have
(His face was shocked in amazement as if a star had landed in his hands. Hehe it was a birthday present and all and something special that I wanted to share and remember my Raghav moment by. But she seemed to have been more in despair as to something and maybe it was me that he was looking at hehe lol)
Raghav: - Awww thank you
(So gently falls in to my arms and gives me a big MWAH, his lips shaped in a big kiss like smooch formation reach for the side of my cheeks and graciously I hug him we compassion)
Aarti: - thereís like hand made bracelets in there and things you like
Raghav: - whatís youíre name?
Aarti: - Aarti
(He spells it right too with two A s)
We gather around for the group photo of Mr Raghav, Me, my best mate and my gorgeous little sis.
His hand was over my shoulder and mine was around his waist, with so much ease my arm automatically went around his waist and not realising that his hand was on my shoulder.
We smile for the photo and take our autographs and leave to go and let the other fans have their moment too.
We all canít have him can we now!
I was a magical moment and I grateful wit all my heart for Mr. Raghav Mathur for being at this show and making my one simple wish coming true. I thought I would only get a few seconds with him and get and Autograph. But I got s kiss, a hug and a sweet smile of astonishment that thank you for making me all these things.
I want to finally say that I thank you, the one and only Mr. Raghav, youíre a great person at heart soul and well you know it too, body hehe lol. Hey weíre all boot-e-ful in out own special way.
Keep up the hard work and stay well throughout the years to come. Hoping your music makes more history for us and we are all very proud of you for being true to yourself and your fans. Thank you for saying in an article that we are the best fans ever. Even though there may be billions of fans for other artists, we nominated us to be the best and the award surely goes to us!

Carry on doing all the good deeds you do because you inspire me to do the same and it follows on as a chain and hopefully with this chain being contagious it will catch the attention of the world and we will all finally be able to say that not only our world is beautiful but the people there are even more beautiful just as much as Mr. Raghav himself.
