Jab We Met!
Truly delightful!The sight of that yellow board bearing these three words sends me into a frenzy.Every part of the movie washes over me like a pleasantly frothy wave.
It had everything a GEN-X movie watcher could ask for.
Alright,so isn't the most practical or sensible movie in the world.
But since when have we been sensible?
Right from the time the effervescent Geet boards the train to the "oh how cute" moment when the adorable Aditya spots her running towards him,the movie has a spirit of its own...so much so that I've actually coined an adjective:Jab We Met-ish!
Adventure,friendship,hope and love have never blended together so naturally,not atleast fr da last coupla years in Tinselville.
Like a musical with several moods and tones,this story took me on a trip about relationships .It read me a fairytale so perfect that magic seemed but normal here,
a place where sunshine broke through every haze of grey,right when we met...jab we met!
"Aaoge jab tum saajna
Angana phool khilenge
Barsega saawan, barsega saawan
Jhoom jhoom ke
Do dil aise milenge...!"

Time grows short, though the hourglass stands still,
Here visits the unmistakeable chill,
Snowflakes arrive ,carpeting the weathered floor,
Melody’s in the moment,could you ask for more?
Vibrant greens and royal purples do retreat,
Cascading curtains of white we greet.
Lo! Footsteps are now pristine blue pools,
Every man’s a dreaming,humming fool!
Beckoned again from dusty old corners,
Cheerful bulbs of light ,quite an audience garner.
Bitter coffee conversations take a vacation,
Cheerful cups of chocolate hapeen,the cafes are quite a location.
Feisty snow creatures rise forth from the garden,
Brownies and pies ensure that plates are scraped till they’re barren.
Oh and you could just join us for a carol,we’re a merry flock,
Waltz away your troubles as you celebrate round the clock.
I know not if moonbeams stand guard over my dreams,
But powerful cheer is in the air,so it seems.
And every step I take,I ask myself
Did I walk into a fairytale?

I haven't gotten one decent scrap in five days!!!!
Well,i most certainly do know that gettin upset just bcoz your friends haven't scrapped you in a goddamn site shouldnt upset ya,but ,you know ,what ,sometimes it does!
It's actually like no one has actually thought of informing you,or sharing with you,or asking you anything about anything in the last five days,,,that's 120 long hours!!!
I know that it might sound, at this point,like i have a case of a swollen head or 'summat,but really,how come long lost friends,acquaintances,juniors,far flung relatives or fellow bloggers have'nt wondered wht u're upto at all???
Ah well...if that's the way the cookie crumbles,i better sweep up the crumbs and move on...

After many years,well,months,more likely,my cousin ,Aparna ,came visiting.
It was right after the first exam of a particularly scary test series,and i was overjoyed!What better way to unwind than with an enthusiastic lil sis who has the same taste as you?
That one week was like a huuuuuuuuuuge slumber party!Everyday,i came home at noon from college,bolted down my lunch and got ready to partay...
My humble room,with its eclectic cozy cushions and its ever beckoning endeariness served as the perfect backdrop for our shenangians!And for some reason,Dard-e- disco(yes,the same noisy,six pack thang)became our anthem.And boy,was it perfect!
I've always wanted to ,what's the phrase,"hang with a gal pal", and do all the stuff that happens in Princess Diaries...nd sixteen years of wishful thinking finally paid off!
We ate out every other night,laughed ourself silly at almost every Disney animation flick,and scared every inmate of the house with our karaoke sessions(hey, i didn't say i sing well! ).
I blissfully neglected my homework and study sessions that week.I'd somehow lost the key to reality,and i was happy lost in a maze of adventure.
Now ,i find i've been thrown rather unceremoniously across the hedges,right back into REAL LIFE.baah...
Still ,i've no complaints coz ...someone once said..
"One crowded hour of glorious life is worth an age without a name."
