Jab We Met - My Way..!!

I normally take movies as time pass or entertainers which make us feel good or sometimes just pass the time we would be killing otherwise… but Jab We Met is one which made me think about it..

Jab we met – a movie which reflects many traits of my personality. I think I could see more of me in kareena’s character and many of shahid’s traits were also part of my life. The Movie starts with shahid going as fail in life to finish his life and fortunately-unfortunately gets onto the train where Geet [kareena] lands in by flashy entry catching a running train. When I was watching kareena being a non stop chatter box , I once thought how can one be that talkative and very next thought , I said ..arrey even m same way yar..
The Story goes a fun way with shahid and kareena together although shahid always looking for escape from her. From ratlam they turn out friends and there starts an interesting story. Like a typical Punjabi family, geet’s family asks her to see the guy and get married while she has some other plans to run to her bf and get married with him and live happily ever after. Interesting times and continuously moving story lands kareena running from home with shahid and meet her bf. The point where kareena is left by shahid and he returns to Mumbai to run his business , Shahid’s life takes a turn. From a serious to hyper-active shahid… he takes his company to heights and gets much more successful than ever and during the time missing kareena and completely out of touch with her. As soon as he launches his product with Kareena’s name, the family of kareena asks him to return kareena to them. Out of shock and asking for 10 days time , he gets back to manali to meet geet and ask her to get back to family. There he comes to know that that guy did not accept her and she was left alone during that time.. Shahid goes to shimla where he sees kareena and manages to get kareena back to home and in this whole time kareena realizes that in this time, shahid has taken over place of her boy friend anshuman and finally kareena marries shahid.. and there ends the story with Maujan Hi Maujaan…….!!

See I somehow wrapped up two and half hour story in few words but there is much more in the story which gives so many reflections and lessons to follow in this fun and easy going comedy movie. Here are some points which atleast I learnt and enjoyed watchin jwm

1. Be Yourself – Kareena shows how you can be yourself and enjoy life to full. Though sometimes being the non stop chatterbox , you might sound stupid, yet you would be able to have real fun of life.
2.When You’re in Love, Be complete in it- Kareena again shows the way to be fully committed in love. Even though his bf has no idea , she still has plans of running with him , getting settled in life etc..
3.Dream to Achieve – You have to dream of something and then act on it. Only if you have something in mind, you can think of going for it or achieving it.
4. Its very hard to get back the same respect and love after differences – Once you leave any space , getting back that space is a very rare chance. It might be taken over by someone or the person can refuse to put you back at same level. I can corelate this with my life where I have given enough respect for some of my friends but due to one or the other reasons have moved away or have lost that level of respect, I really think sometimes that it would be very hard for me to give the same anytime again in life.
5.Be a good Listener - Sometimes ,person on the other side can also be right. We always try to think , whatever we think and how we act is the right way to do things, But there are many times where people on other side can suggest or can act the right way.
6.Exceptional Music is always a bonus – Aaoge jab tum o saajna [my fav] , Yeh Ishq Hai [ another fav] , Tum se hi din[ fantastic], Maujan hi Maujaan [ balle balle], Chalne lage hain yeh raaste [ pretty nice] and Nagaada Nagaada [ another foot tapping number] .. good music will always help in making a bollywood movie HIT……
7. You can always like someone and enjoy it – Its not always necassery that one who you love, loves you. Not everyone can be that lucky.. but you can always enjoy being in love or liking someone. You can just like and feel happy about it. Just Enjoy in that feel..
8.Don’t Run from your house- He he.. as simple as that, Never Run from your House.. and last but not the least
9.If you are rich , need not publicise it , You might get Fake Friends.

All in All.. Great Movie,Awesome Music, Fantastic Humor , Absolutely Great Dialogue Delivery by Kareena and Shahid.. they both show great chemistry between them . Irony is that their first hit as couple comes after they break up.
Cheerz to JAB WE MET.. :)

What a valentine day I had.. I would say this was first year I celebrated the day being Single …even without friends… and what a great day I had..

The day when stress, tension, smiles, excitements, love, care , worries all feelings came , stayed for some moments and then left way for others to come.. Being in Bangalore, and on working day.. no plans made but to go to Office.. Morning 7 am.. woke up and got ready in an hour and was really happy to be all ready by this early but when you get ready for office on time and on the way get stuck in traffic.. nothing irritates you more than that.. finally stepped in office @ 9.15 only to know that there was a long day in wait and loads of work to finish…Anywayz whu carez that time… he he.. had breakfast and finished off with analysis and daily work.. There was one issue which I was handling which needed immediate attention and coz of that the first half of day kept me in worry and stress since at times I was not getting the right way to get it out but I kept going.. went to Lunch..had great time there wid team mates…and Tea-Time, we all had a new joinee’s party in Cafeteria. …Till evening all things went normal… and almost to end of evening, got the issue resolved.. woooohoooo.

Sanskruti - Ethnic Day Celebrations

8th Feb, 2007… It was a long day…. Tiring yet a memorable one… Sanskruti ‘The Ethnic Day’ was there, Bharathi’s Marriage and least thought of.. work :p came as surprise..The Ethnic day was planned this time in much organized and innovative way. So for everybody it was a pleasant surprise. We started off with distributing houses in all the teams with respective captains taking cues and material for the same the day before. The planning went long ways and people started decorating their respective aisles straightway. While the organizing committee was busy decorating the common bay for function, we all could see a clear enthu between all teams and great spirit of competition.
We had Kindergarten, Jail, Discotheque, Railway Platform, Village ,Beauty Parlour, Star Trek and Junkyard as themes for decoration, So each of the teams were in full flow to make a clear picture of the same. 8th Feb, Everyone came to office in ethnic wear, so it was one day when all of us were out of normal Jeans, Shirts and Trousers..I too went in Kurta Pajama and with complete Punjabi Attire.It was great all around, People came in their traditional dresses. Around noon time, we had the judgement for the themes decorated, and wat a competition it was.. no one was clear winner seen. Till the time results were announced, we never knew who won..After Judgement, we got all the teams in respective aisles and started off with the games. Uncommonly Common, Mummies Alive and Mad Ads, there was full participation and great sportsmanship between all the teams. Me and Kiran were the anchors for the event and I think, both of us controlled the stage fairly well to catch attention of audience. While she controlled the formal part of speech, me took control of spontenity of situation and handled stage that times. In all, all the times .. we never clashed :DAfter the games, we had a great Guitar Performance by David Enhinger, and it was indeed a flawless performance. Mad Ads were great too.. all the teams came up with their innovbeto ation and creativity to catch everyone’s attention to buy their products, Finally Stone Pillows were considered Winners.
We had vote of thanks by Ganesh and everyone went for the Lunch at Civet. Handling 200 people at civet itself turned out to be bit of challenge but I would say, we managed to get hold of that as well.
It was great to see almost everyone putting an effort to make this event a success and to make it memorable for long times. We could hear good feedback from all the leads, managers and everyone around. It boosted the morale of organizers and set a benchmark for times to come.
Well, We all had lunch, full tummies and then got back to seat to check mail and what a surprise.. The work load was double and time was quite less. So we all sat and finished our work as soon as possible, The Moment last one said the work is done, we went for Bharathi’s Reception. And we never knew that the mantapa [place of reception] was 35 km from office.. it took nearly 90 minutes for us toreach there. Bharathi was very happy to see all team mates there. J So we all had south Indian food , south Indian style one more time ;) After having the food we all went to meet the couple . Finally by 10.20 we started journey back home and in half an hour, back home finishing the day tired, yet memorable.

Off now……. Ciao……
