"All that glitters is not gold,
and all those who wander are not really lost"

Now this is one of my most favorite thoughts. Would you guess why? Because it's from the same flick which I love (the most)

So here's another part of purely Hindi movies which I have loved and adored since bachpan-dom.

IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER: (so that you can also win a radio show some day)

1. Theory : I never understood 'Maine Pyar Kiya' or " Hum Aapke Hain Kaun' , all of them were movies with just loads of songs and caps. The one movie which did make way into my puny brain was .. DDLJ ( well atleast the first half did) .

Effects on infant-ult mind : a) All women in Europe must be called Senorita.
b) Every one must buy a big bell
c) People should sing and probably dance, play footie in the rain.
d) No one should wear their shirts without half of it spilling outside.

Observation: I started writing a diary, " Today i went to school , had tiffin, studied hindi, english....."

Conclusion: " I love thy songs " :D

2. Now this one holds a special place for me and my brother.Both of us were WWF aspirants back then so.... Main Khiladi Tu Anari. We loved the dhishoom dhishoom,the songs, we loved the dance, we loved the movie.

We even tried chorusing the song :)

3. Humko Ishq Ne Maara- I'm pretty sure that none of you have heard of YRF's only television release. I don't know but I found it sweet. pertaining to the fact that was the zamana of 'Hip Hip Hurray'

4. Theory: Introduction to Friendship bands, to college, to unrequited love being fulfilled and of dances in the rain. Under this intoxicating surge many a mates set upon immediately finding theire very own rahul/anjali and some even settled for tina.

Effects on the kid-ult mind: a) " I WILL get married to my crush"
b) People knew what was friendship day and Archies opened
10 more outlets.
c) Basketball became cool. ( And my nose was smashed 15 times
since then)

Observation: Every love became college-love. Basketball became bad for health and The guy called 'Rahul' was tied 20 rakhis.

Conclusion: SRK arrived with Shahid in tow.

5. Jab We Met.

Why did I write this post? Because the next time anyone says " oohh God the same Hindi film" or " What's there in these Hindi films" I'm going to take out a morcha in front of their house and shout at them . Can any other language give you a word like 'TOTA' ? You can watch your Godfather ,Al pacino and Al Capone, run along Star Trek whatever, but apni bollywood nu insult na kariyo .

Moving on what was this Harry Potter all about?? Where was the Half Blood Prince? Great fan of the book, not the same for the movies.

Do take this as a tag "Movies which influenced me" or something of that sort. :) *Don't worry I wont kill you" :)

The past week has been nice, with my training ending and finally getting time to relax. Few friends are moving to different places and I know that this trend will continue further one year down.

When more people lose contact with each other becoming mere names on your 'friend list'. Some might have already attained that status.

Some of whom were *acquaintances* have become PGF( pretty good friends) and some more will fill up the lacunae created by those who have left.

And yet as my 22nd birthday completes a month, I realise that how few are there out of the 100s we meet every year ( via some mode or the other) who manage to leave an imprint even for a few seconds.

There's no limit,boundary and differentiability test as to how and who will be your friend 'coz life in itself is too short to decide many things among which *dosti* is the trivial-est of all.

Life is too short ,

to not smirk , to hold up , to not know how to spell S-H-M-U-C-K.

Life is too short,

to not laugh out loud, to cover your mouth while laughing, to not pee when you laugh hard,
to not see Chaplin, to not act like the aunty-in-maxi asking if her daughter has a bf.

Life is too short ,
to not make friends, to think that anybody other than your own demons could harm you,
to be judgmental, to hate others because they use wrong grammer-diction-language,
to waste hailing Rakhi sawant.

Life is too short ,

to not take a *dare* , to not say the *truth*
when the only judge is a bottle spinning on a table-top,

Life is too short ,

to not say " i looove french fries", to be superstitious,
to not take your favourite pen for exams , to not wear your favourite shirt on all 5 days of the exam,
to not try *bubble boom*

Life is too short ,
to envy those who have found love ,many times over :P ,
to not gossip thinking that it would be *politically incorrect * shmuck you are no bahuguna,
to not try to set up every friend with every one else :P, to not set morals for others who have things and beings we don't

Life is too short ,
to not try to bhangra, to not sing in front of seniors,
to think that *good girls should not drink*, i don't but thats another story already related,
to not whistle and then have a dog chase you , *his master's voice* did yo sayy?

Life is too short ,
to be too moralistic, to never bunk a class,
to think that we can only be bella and not edward, to not be proud of yourself, to not have contrasting thoughts.

Life is too short ,
to not feel sad listening to sad songs,
to not dance to and sing *dhik chik dhik chik* , to not wake up at 3am wanting to write a post,
to not call friends at 12am for their happpppyyy birthdays .

Life is too short ,
to think that the world is bad, that things might go bad, that being negative might save you from the blunders the world commits,
to not watch the first day-first show of *Kidnap*,
to repress emotions,
to not cry when Rahul leaves Anjali.

Life is too short ,
to be moralistic and preachy, to not collect donation for old age homes, to be out of touch with your inner self,
to listen to mumbo-jumbo,
to not enjoy life whichever way that be unless illegal , to not have life, to not have vitae, to not be a bourne,

to not plan, to not fall, to not get up , to not set things right,
to not tell yourself that everything will be perfect just the way you like it
and that your friends will be with you no matte
r what and where ever they go.
