I am no fan of Bollywood. I usually watch them when my friends drag me or when I need good laugh. One movie I enjoyed watching in recent times was Queen. A little too late to write about it but better late than never. While watching the movie, few quotes ran through….
- If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth: Remember the scene where Rani’s fiancé meets her at local cafe two days prior to wedding, just to inform her that he doesn’t want to marry her.. Well, this was expected. Remember how he gets all agitated when she dances during their engagement? Remember how he convinces or rather dictates her not to work and stick around the house popping babies. Often we hang on to people who do not treat us well hoping that one day good times will return again. We repeat the restrictions they enforce is for our own good and they have best interests for us. We believe their elaborate reasons and give them the benefit of doubt. Do yourself a favor – Walk away.
- Not everyone you lose is your loss: On this journey of life, we meet lot of people. Not all people whom we meet and like are meant to stay with us. Some leave,some stay. Losing someone isn’t a loss. It’s a lesson for future. Moreover you realize over time that those little gaps left by people always get filled with better people in our lives.
- This too shall pass: No matter how bad things are, it will not be the same. The key is to not fret too much and be in control like our Queen. After all you never know what adventures are in store. Look where all life took her – Paris, Amsterdam. Live in the moment. Drink, pour your heart out and definitely dance 🙂
- There are no strangers, just friends who have not met: In India, we are not often encouraged to hang out with strangers. Think about it. Our friends are usually from school, college or colleagues. But interacting with people with different background and culture opens your mind. From being escorted by brother everywhere to sharing room with three unknown guys, she explores friendship and her inner self. The escapades from sight-seeing, shopping, visiting sex shop, meeting pole dancers – the four share a bond for life.
- Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, and the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.
