Anjaana Anjaani

When I first saw the promos of the movie Anjaana Anjaani.. I was like yeah I will watch it :-)
When you r in a foreign land and you “love” movies especially the romantic one’s you wouldn’t miss this movie for anything on a weekend where otherwise you have no option than to go to malls or watch TV at home..

So on a Sunday afternoon I left for the theatre. I had decided to watch the 4 15 show. It was housefull and I was glad I went early (had experienced watching “we are family” on the third row) to get tickets of the second last row.

The movie is very filmy.. very filmy type romantic… but then so am I :-)
And whoa I did like the movie.. liked the concept too. Though couldn’t get to agree with Priyanka Chopra’s character, still I loved the movie. and later thought that Priyanka Chopra’s character was also ok.. means like these things could happen to people…and people could behave that way….And I thought how true.. sometimes or in fact most of the times the people who help you out when all you need is to make a new beginning are strangers.

And then I was thinking about aNjaAna's and aNjaAni's in my life who were meant to be friends for a while but for that time they were the most appropriate people in my life.

When you are with strangers you forget all your past hurts, sadness and u tend to start your life anew.

May be its the comfort factor and that the stranger doesn’t know you at all, which makes it so easy to forget the burden of the past and make a new beginning, write a new chapter in your life, and you can have the new beginning exactly the way you want it to be…

Here in South Africa there are 6 strangers I have encountered (of which one is a 3 year old girl Mahi) and I am perfectly happy and at peace when I am with them. Irrespective of all the sadness or anxiety I feel when I am alone sometimes vanishes the moment I let myself be the new “MARI”, the happy “MARI”. And it’s a whole new world for me.

This blog goes to all the anjaana’s and anjaani's in my life. You all have made my life worthwhile :-)
And also to those who are no more anjaana’s and anjaani’s but lifelong friends :-)
