—Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh

Bathinda, October 25
"Life is too small to worry. I live in the present.  This is what satirist Jaspal Bhatti said in his last interview to The Tribune during his visit to the city for promoting his movie "Power Cut 

Asked about his future projects, Bhatti had replied: "I live in the present. My present is to promote ‹“Power Cut that will add a new dimension to the peoples knowledge about the power sector in the state.  Bhatti, a retired senior Executive Engineer (XEN) with the erstwhile Punjab State Electricity Board (PSEB), was working on three scripts simultaneously.

The "Ulta-Pulta  man, called himself a crusader of peoples causes. "As an actor, I am fulfilling my duty to society with my satires. When I provoke a chuckle in the audience, my work is done. The onus then lies on the people whether or not to react to a situation, 

Amritsar, October 25
He was one from the masses who taught people to laugh at their own gripe. An incredible entertainer, he was a sharp satirist too. His untimely death has left the Punjabi entertainment industry in a shock.

Bhatti was born in Amritsar at the ancestral home of his maternal grandmother at Chowk Karori. "We had shared a room just hours before the accident. He had talked of the irony that Yash Chopras last directorial film is titled ‹“Jab Tak Hai Jaan. And today he is dead when his film, now his last, is to be released tomorrow,  said a tearful Arvinder Bhatti.

"I was with him while promoting the film in Ludhiana a few days ago. I was to join him in Chandigarh later. We were planning more promotional strategies. He was like a father-figure to me,  said Amritsar-based artiste Chandan Prabhakar, who has a role in "Power Cut .

Playwright Jaswant Jas described him as one of the pioneers in ‹“black comedy. Though Bhatti spent most of his early years in Nangal and Chandigarh, he briefly studied at DAV College, Amritsar. "He spent a year at the college and later shifted to Chandigarh. In 2003, we honoured him as a prominent alumnus of the college,  said KN Kaul, Principal, DAV College.

Tribune News Service

Jasraj, who was driving the vehicle, escaped with minor injuries as the air bag saved him. Surilie sustained a hip dislocation. She also had injuries on her leg. Navneet sustained injuries on the head.

He was said to be out of danger. A shocked Zafar Khan, who has an important role in "Power Cut  said: "We had reached Jalandhar when we learnt of the accident. I am devastated. Eberything was going on so well...  Jasraj was inconsolable when told about his fathers death. He refused to meet anybody.

Seat belt may have saved Bhatti

"Had Bhatti worn a seat belt, he may have been saved,  said a doctor at the hospital. Bhatti, who was on the rear seat, died of multiple skull fractures.

OBITUARY
He will be remembered for his wry one-liners
Bhatti dared to call spade a spade, and yet was an incredibly well-liked person
Nonika Singh

Jaspal Bhatti, the very mention of whose name would bring an involuntary smile to ones lips, today evokes a heartfelt emotion of deep loss. Satirist, comedian, actor, director and columnist with The Tribune, Bhattis untimely demise in a road accident in the wee hours of Thursday morning leaves behind a void that would be hard to fill.

‹“Irreplaceable is the word well-known comedian Gurpreet Ghuggi uses to describe Bhattis place in the world of laughter. He goes on to state that with him Punjab saw the advent of a new era of comedy that was a far cry from buffoonery. He says: "For here was a man who made people double up in laughter with his wry one-liners and not silly antics. 

Undeniably, Bhatti, who put Chandigarh on the laughter map of India and whose dead pan expression held millions in a thrall, set new refreshing standards of satire. He had the singular ability to infuse humour in everyday situations and address the common mans problems through wit and jibes. Sarcasm was his forte and he knew how to use it effectively and purposefully. The man who mocked at one and all had the cheek to poke fun at himself too. Samples of this are ample on his official website. Even the credit of his films, including the latest "Power Cut  that hits the cinema on Friday and marks the debut of his son Jasraj Bhatti reads - (mis)directed by Jaspal Bhatti. Today Punjabi films might be ruling the roost but remember it was way back in 1998 that his Punjabi film "Mahaul Theek Hai  broke records and ran for over 13 weeks. If in his last feature film he spoofed the police force, "Power Cut  is a satire on the states power situation. Incidentally, this Punjab Engineering College graduate had got his first job in the Punjab State Electricity Board. Ironically, the man who dared to call spade a spade was an incredibly well-liked person "for people understood that he had no axe to grind,  said his close associate and actor of many serials Vinod Sharma.

If his uncanny sense of humour pulsated in his works right from his popular serials like "Ulta-Pulta , "Flop Show  and the DVD film "Jija Ji  and much more, in person too he brimmed with it. Sharma recalls how Bhatti created a bouquet out of recycled products when he went to congratulate Rock Garden creator Nek Chand. The Nonsense Club that he founded in 1980s as a student of PEC was yet another testimony to his wacky ideas. But his barbs were not misplaced or misdirected. Not loud or vulgar either. No wonder Ghuggi says: "He never hurt anybody and even if he did lampoon them, I bet his subjects too would not have been able to resist a hearty laugh.  In fact, Ghuggi views him as someone who not only showed the way to many comedians of Punjab but also how to walk en route that path. One person who has walked along with Bhatti shoulder to shoulder is his wife Savita Bhatti. She has played an integral and stellar role in his work. Acting in his serials, she has been involved in his projects right from the stage of genesis, together creating work of consequence. Four years ago, to hone the talent of the region, they set up MadArts Jaspal Bhatti Film School.

Though Bhatti may not have got the credit for it, the fact remains that he was instrumental in carving a niche for the turbaned image of Sikhs, both on the television and in popular Hindi cinema. An actor of many Bollywood films like "Fanaa  and "Aa Ab Laut Chalen , he sincerely believed that the unflattering portrayal of Sikhs in the Hindi cinema was a thing of the past.

The son of Punjab born in Amritsar in 1955 aspired to make a Hindi film too. On the anvil was also the mission to set up Indias first comedy school. But dreams die young. In his case much was achieved, yet there were many more miles to go. Alas, at 57, he has fallen asleep forever.

Killer Roads: State has 300 ‹“black spots
Sanjeev Singh Bariana/TNS

Chandigarh, October 25
Punjab has at least 300 "black spots  that have been officially certified as "very high risk  status by the Roads and Bridges Development Board of the Public Works Department. On an average, 10 persons die in road accidents in the state daily. Ace comedian Jaspal Bhatti, unfortunately, happened to be one of them.

The car of Giani Zail Singh, former President, met with an accident in 1994. Capt Kanwaljit, former Finance Minister of Punjab, was killed in an accident near the accident prone T-point near Kharar in March 2009.

In terms of the Accident Security Index , " black spots  are areas that see "very frequent  accidents. These spots have a score of more than 30 points calculated on account of the nature of accident, its severity (death 6 points, non fatal 3 and minor1), frequency of accidents and other factors.

Importantly, at least 350 such spots existed more than five years back as pointed out in the Road Safety Audit carried out in 2007. Sources said not more than 50 such spots had been rectified till date. At least 40 more had been rendered "satisfactory . Of the total, at least 125 were located on national highways and the remaining on state and district highways.

The Punjab Police has prepared a list of at least 200 trouble spots based on ground accident data. The state list has in all 200 accident-prone spots. Amritsar district has at least 30 crucial points( among them Maqboolpura Chowk, Sangam Chowk, Sikandri Gate, Sadar Chowk and Ram Bagh Chowk), Batala has 36 , including the Jalandhar bypass, Shastri Nagar Mod, Beeko Mod, Amritsar Chowk, Dhir Mor Bypass, Simble Chowk and Maur Pind Kandial, and Gurdaspur has 20, including Bus stand Parmanand, Sekhupur Paper Mill, NFL Colony crossing and Nattan Wali Puli.

Certain road portions near the state capital have witnessed serious accidents in the past and continue posing problems to drivers. These include a portion of the road near Sunny Enclave in Ropar, the Blind T-Point near Landran that has no traffic lights, the Maur Bharopur T-Point and the old Rail Bridge in Sirhind.

Behind his comic face, he was a courageous man
Vivek Gupta
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, October 25
"Behind his comic face, he was a courageous man,  says Savita Bhatti while recalling her 28-year-long journey with her husband Jaspal Bhatti. He always remained fearless and committed to his work, she adds.

"After the release of ‹“Mahaul Theek Hai in 1999, he got several threatening calls and it created a lot of tension in the family. But he did not bow down and continued to make films on issues which concerned him greatly,  says Savita.

Even his upcoming movie, Power Cut, had a few objectionable dialogues against politicians, but he did not remove them, she says.

Remembering him as a man who always gave her equal opportunities in his projects, Savita says it pains her that she will never be paired with him again.

Savita had talked to him last night. He was excited about the premier of his movie that was scheduled for today, she says. "Nobody knew that he would meet such a fate,  she says, with a chocking voice.
