Boondein…

Life at 1.45 am, Place: My Bedroom, State of mind: Stateless…
Life is found to be at perfect bliss! Finished watching my favourite shot from movie ‘Wake Up Sid!’. It’s the climax scene where in Ranbir realises his love for Konkona while reading her dream article in Ranbir’s dream magazine when Mumbai’s aah-so-beautiful first rain descends. They both meet at Nariman Point – one place I would always want to be at, to experience the rains! Cudos to the director! He’s captured the rain so beautifully! And to make the scene even more lovely, you have 2 wonderful, fresh n full-of-life actors, Konkona and Ranbir. Adorable! Okay, back to me n my room! There’s amazing weather outside. The Nature God dawned upon us today. Very soothing and surreal breeze was flowing in the evening taking away the scorching heat. A perfect time to hang around with close friends. Not just hang around! Roam around!!! Where do we find ourselves? Khadakwasla. Crowded place. (We later realized it was a Sunday :)). Nonetheless, it din’t stop us from having our share of fun. Rain started pouring in. My very first experience to be so much near the water and  be blessed by the divinity of Rain-God! Could I ask for more?
Kaash hum har lamha dil me kaid rakh paate? Kyaa Kare… Dil toh baccha hain jee…!

On a different note, why look for joy elsewhere and be sad for not finding it, when it is “showered” upon you in small and little ways?

and now I switch back to the super-awesssome track of the movie,

“Jo Barse Sapne Boon-Boond, Naino ko Moond-Moond
Kaise Main Chalu? Dekh Na Saku! Anjaane Raaste…….”

PS: I recommend everyone watching the movie Wake Up Sid! – a very coming-of-age film. Not the typical one!

PPS: I just realised, I’ve finished one year of blogging. Anniversary! Reasons to celebrate. YAY! I’ll do the year-roundup soon 🙂
