I don’t know why but most people watch movies and praise them but don’t really embrace them. The way i see it is that films can teach us a great deal about life. Now before you come to any conclusion about what’s going to follow, let me assure you that this little write up is not on films at all. Its purpose is very different.
I want to take one particular instance from a film that has inspired me a great deal and has helped me to understand n live a better life. I feel that it has a strong significance in almost everyone’s life. Bluffmaster is that film and there is one particular scene that hit me big time. The scene where Boman Irani asks Abhishek Bachchan “How Many Days of Your Life Do You Remember?” for which the answer was a meagre 30. Thirty years old and just 30 days to remember?, this brings me to the point of this little write up.
Everyone reading this please try and think about it. I don’t want you to count coz that will take ages. The point is not to count but for each one to realize that most of us have very few such days. When i started thinking about this my thoughts went right back to when i was in 9th Std and i had just come back home after discovering a library which stacked all the Tintin and Asterix as well as loads of Archies. For my first day i had picked up a Tintin (Don’t remember which one). I came back home, i think i had some guests over but i did not indulge. I straight away went to have a bath, changed into my Kurta Payjama, picked up the comic n started reading it lying down on the bed and i remember myself very clearly saying these words “THIS IS LIFE!!!”. I was just so happy because what this meant was a new comic everyday and my thoughts constantly went to the hundereds of comics still lying on the shelf waiting for me.I couldn’t stop smiling.
I did remember other days also but still even after a lot of thinking i didn’t have enough. Now you would ask what is enough. Well, nothing ever is. That’s Human Nature and we can’t help it. But what we can do is put this in the right direction. Everyday that we live, we live to want more time, more money, more this and more that. Instead we should live each day in such a way that we can remember it forever, live to ask for more such days coz no matter what you say now, these will be the only days that will be worth anything in your life.
