In City Beautiful, to initiate his all-India tour, Ballimaaraan —The Piyush Mishra’s Musical Project, he had packed all things necessary to brave the weather for an open-courtyard show at Nexus Elante Mall on Saturday. His connection with Chandigarh is really special. Although The ‘Ballimaaraan’ band didn’t originate in Chandigarh, but the root cause has been this place or rather a person from Chandigarh, Nishant Agarwal, who is now the lead guitarist of his performing team. Piyush shares, “It was him (Nishant) who had this idea of making a band and performing my compositions for the live audience. He continued to pester me when I was in Delhi doing theatre and even followed me to Mumbai when I pursued acting in films. So, what started in 2015-2016 with him, percussionist Jayant Patnaik (also from Punjab) and I, has grown into a set-up similar to Coke Studio, which itself is quite a journey.

As he celebrates his 60th birthday on Lohri (Friday), he speaks on how he has started enjoying family life, sitting down with wife or talking with his pet dog. And whether staying busy has helped him stay grounded and not take his success seriously? The actor leaves it to be answered by how he is perceived by the masses much like his upcoming autobiographical-novel, Tumhari Aukaat Kya Hai Piyush Mishra?, which will be releasing on February 10. In the book, he is not just narrating his life’s journey, flaws and incidents, but also puts forth the question of identity. No preaching On what led him to lead a better life away from his alcohol addiction, he doesn’t preach to be perfect. “It’s all about small indicators (ishaare) that pop up in your mind or by people around you; it’s always your choice whether to accept or reject them.

What people say about me doesn’t reach me. Even if it does, I do not care. Having said that, it’s because of social media that people can access my poems, my lectures and more, so I am thankful that there’s a medium to reach out to the masses,” he explains.
