Even if you have two equally crazy music-lover friends to help you find a famous person alighting from a dhow-cruise at Dubai Creek, the task becomes near impossible if you don't know the name of the boat and its position at the dock. At 11 pm, I learned this lesson. After cruising along the creek, the boats – at least 10 of them, had docked at the same time and an avalanche of contented, well-fed and noisy passengers descended from them making it practically impossible to locate the person we were eagerly looking forward to meet. Ravindra Jain, the composer of many popular soundtracks like Saudagar, Geeet Gaata Chal, Chitchor, Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se, Ram Teri Ganga Maili and Heena (and not to forget the mega-TV-serial Ramayan), was in Dubai and we (Kaustubh Pingle, Deepak Soni and myself) were there to meet him and hoping to nab him for a musical chat. After spending half an hour looking at every possible face remotely resembling the artist, we were about to dejectedly call it quits. The dock was now deserted barring three of us!
