The Others

There are sections of people in society living for food, money, fame and power. All have their own life, priorities and family. We come across different kinds of people in our daily life. It depends on our acceptance what comes our way i.e. kind of people we accept, which actually affects our lifestyle in a way.

The world is too big to explore all the elements in it.

Different sections of people live in different areas of world which is further divided into countries, states, cities and villages. People residing in cities have a different lifestyles to live with and different work culture to deal with. People are fast enough to get hold of the technology available in the market. Food is available in bulk in varieties awaiting a mass wastage to the extent of throwing comestible food. We are used to such site seeing as we are one of them leading same lifestyle.

But there are other sections of people in society, the people in villages who actually are connected to us but we are separated from them. Its only when we meet people, we get to know them. People we face in our daily life is from our society. But when we start moving places and start meeting other people who are not actually leading our lifestyle we come to know about their dilemmas which is very different than us. Even if the rural areas are developing, there are still sections of people who live hand to mouth on daily basis. People who grow rice in their fields know the real value of it. Rice is gold for them for they know the sweat utilized in it. They have their own wet eye story to tell.

We live a very different lifestyle no where close to the others. The others too lead completely a different life than we do. They are unaware of our very different problem and vice versa.

They are others for us or are we, for them...

The Others.

Fall in Love!

I saw her for the first time but was unable to make out who she was and from where she had come. I couldn’t remember her in any of the serials in TV as told by my friends. She was beautiful but never attracted me. Most of my friends liked her but I was not in their favor.

And one day after a long time when I managed to watch “Lage Raho Munnabhai” in Fames. There she was. She was looking gorgeous. She had a charming face. Her hair was coming in front of her eyes and she just flipped it behind her ears. I just fall in love with Janavi ... the character played by Vidya Balan in Lage Raho Munnabhai. I never liked her in her first movie "Parineeta" but this time everything has changed.

"Good Morning Mumbai" she said with a resonating voice. Her vibrant sound was good to feel. I couldn’t believe one can change somebody’s likes and dislikes. She changed mine.

Munnabhai and Circuit have done a great job in the movie. Gandhiji was well presented in the movie. What I liked is the changeover of Vidya Balan in the movie. But that is virtual reality displayed on silver screen and we start reacting to situations. What were displayed on the screen were the script, direction, beauty and talent. Virtual world is only meant for entertainment most of the time. In real world if we want to change others view towards oneself then we need to fall in love with the positive aspect of life. It’s only the makeover of oneself with efforts put in if he/she wants to change his/her image to change others perspective towards oneself. One needs to change, if ever he/she wants to change his/her image in life.

So the next time we get up in the morning lets say...

Gooood Mooornning Muumbaai... And think what good change we can bring in for the day.
