Another Fairytale ? Ananya's Fairytale ??


Ananya's favourite movies, Impact of Bollywood movies,

I was 14, during school vacations I visited my aunt (my mothers younger sister), who stayed in Pune. We both were watching a romantic Bollywood movie 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun'. I was totally lost enjoying the romance between Salman Khan  and Madhuri Dixit. I was immersed in watching the actor's display of his unconditional love. The way he wooed his lady was so alluring. 

Reading my mind, my aunt paused the movie and said "Movies are meant for entertainment, don't take these love stories too seriously. Real life is totally different from REEL life. In Reality life is not always rosy, Lovers are not always in Love. There will be a stage where you feel you are in love, but you need to be wise enough to analyze the situation logically and decide whats best for you."

"You won't understand completely what I just said, but always remember it", saying this she resumed the movie.

That night I lay in my bed thinking if love is real, after hearing the harsh reality of love I decided to always listen to my mind over heart, I promised myself to always think before I act but a small part of me secretly prayed to find my Prince Charming some day.


Would my love story end with a ' ..they lived happily ever after', Another Fairytale or will it be a Nightmare, that only time could tell.

  6. Ooooo, my first A to read! And a good one... I think your aunt gave good advice, but it would have been fun to have another aunt who said to follow your heart... then you would have both voices is your head to balance each other.

  9. I couldn't agree more with your Aunt. I have a happily ever after too. I met my husband on a trek twelve years ago, and we have been together since then. The initial phase was very exciting. But soon, it gave way to a new phase. The show-less-feel-deeper phase. I now love my husband more than I did twelve years ago, I am more attached to him and vice versa. But we have surpassed that rosy romantic peaches and cream kinda love. Our love is shared mutually between us and our kids. It is definitely not the Hindi Movies kinda romance, but a better one :) I hope you find your happily-ever-after too! :)

  12. Your aunt's advice is a good one and the one from the head!! But then heart does not follow any rules, it finds it own path! And may your story has ... they lived happily ever after! Cheers :)

  13. Hopefully your life won't turn out like the soap opera that's HAHK :) Here's to strokes of your life as you make it!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Good luck with that Ananya. But personally I feel in the matters of the heart, if the heart rules the mind it usually turns just fine. Anyway, hope you find your Prince Charming son :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I loved HAHK too but I would only half-agree with your aunt's opinion. While it is true that reel life is nothing like real life where there are many people who would take a girl on a ride in the name of love. But I feel true love exists. Why else some people would be married for 60-70 years and still cannot live a moment without each other :)

  17. My husband and I met online, so we fell in love with who we thought the other one was. We were neither totally the same or totally different than we seemed, though. And we met 21 years ago, have been together 19 years and married for 17 with 3 children.

    Great A to Z start, Ananya!

  20. Aha! I am smiling after reading it! While many of my friends and aunts still say I am living in a fairy tale world of romance and love, I dont wish to give up on that! I believe in such stories and I dont mind an optimistic approach! And no fairy tale is complete without struggles and daily life problems, but they end on a happy note! So they seem real to me :)
    All the best for further alphabets :)

  26. I was a romantic when I was younger. I loved romantic movies and dreamed I was the heroine. Of course life is a mix of both, a little bit of fairy tale, a little bit of reality....but probably more of the latter! still I think it's wonderful to hope and dream.

  32. I went from heart to mind to heart, Ananya. Wondering how your tale has proceeded. :)

    1. Well you know it proceeded, as any other ordinary life story, with extraordinary events.

  33. This is wonderful! Yes, you must listen to your brain - there are many charmers that will take what they can and go, but that being said, true love does exist. I see it every day when I look at my husband. Sometimes it can be covered with anger and sadness when we get into a disagreement, but when it comes down to it, the love that we share (going on 11 years married, 18 years since we started dating) grows deeper every day. We rarely let a day go past that we do not say we love each other or share a glance that says more than words. It is wonderful and all logic says that this could not have happened when we were 17, but so far, logic was wrong. My advice is become best friends before you get married, because the friendship holds you through the tough times!

  35. "Happily Ever After" is a bit idealistic, but you can certainly be fortunate enough to meet the one person who is right for you and spend your lives together. I did! :) We've had some bad times along with the good, but that's just part of life. As someone else said, if you become best friends first, that helps a lot.

    1. Yes Debbie. Sometimes I feel whole fairytale concept is overrated.
      I appreciate your honesty in saying that we have bad times, yes we all do!

  37. In life, anything is possible. There are times when you will find your Prince Charming. There are times when he will sweep you off your feet. There are times when you wonder why you found him charming. My two cents: Take Life as it comes and enjoy the whole ride :)

  42. I love Bollywood movies! Anything I can find on Netflix. Do you think it would have been different if the first movie you watched was Devdas?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Lily on a lighter note if Devdas would be the movie, guess the emphasis would be on ' Drinking Alcohol, Bad habits, addiction' etc not love. ;)

  54. Well sweety, or Ananya... this is certainly a very difficult topic... but falling in love is different than being in love and it could be a phase that may go or get permanent... however we are complicating things completely... love is life... you may love the movement, a person or thing and experience happiness that is bounds and thats when you become cheerful...when it comes to life partner... it is affection and friendship and a bond...wooing of a girl just like in films is well time pass(: but enjoying spending time with her, encouraging her and trusting each other what counts for a complete love relationship that will be forever charged come what times may...there is no prince charming... but yes when you find someone your sure, do trust your heart too...only don't cross boundaries and be sensible and intact...your heart is wiser than the head and is purer...also think one should keep that as part of our lives, not our whole life, and must stay disconnected...if its true we would stay reconnected. Wish you good luck... I am sure I am not talking sense but that is my view... I had almost fallen in love(: last year and the reason i did was only because I was sure that person liked me genuienly not for my looks, money but me(: and even though he had to go because of some reasons I changed completely... so I think love is deep and real and if it is true really it will grow you up(: one has to experience it...sometimes I fall in love with the movement and not anyone and get selfish... and I don't know weather it is right or wrong... but it depends on experience, do fall in love with life and think someone if walks along with you without making you love love of love, he or she is perfect for you...and there might be someone who makes you love life and yourself more... but it is best be disconnected not emotional, rational and trust your heart too... it is only your subsconsiense which has thought things over without your knowledge... I think it would work in general...anyway blabering...
