Barfi - when words seem so useless ,when eyes do
the wonder ;they reflect jealousy,love,attraction
helplessness !it took
me back to the time when on Saturday evenings I
used to visit Prayas ; A home for mentally challanged
unwanted kids in bhilai (some newspapers claiming
that its a motivation behind 'Barfi' as Subrata Bose
was closely associated with it ) Dealing with some of
the personal problems in life those two hours at
prayas gave me solace ! Kids playing,dancing
,drawing made u forget the "Normal " in your
existence ! One fine day I was told that a girl named
khushi was crying n pushing everyone back as she
attained puberty and was going through a biological process where she needed her mother to explain her the changes ! I tried to explain her but all in vain ,she just kept her head on my lap n cried ,cried ,slept ! Back home I could not sleep ,went to sleep with mom n dad ,I hugged them and thought I was so fortunate to have them in life and then cursed god ,cursed him that if u have not given them the ability to think,to understand then why gave them emotions ,the harmones ,the biological features ,what if they love someone ,how would they express it ! And whoa "Barfi" answered my questions ;the two scenes when Ranbir kapoor is heartbroken and through his hands n eyes says it all(you carry the legacy of Raj Kapoor from jaagte raho man) ,Second when Priyanka Chopra covers him with her hands to say to Ileana that he is mine ,stay away are just picture perfect !watch Barfi for a beautiful locales of drajeeling ,for the kolkata of 70s , for the uncomplicated life when we were not socialy networked ,for a person who does not need some so called abilities to be happy ,for the selfless love without blood relations ,for some of the lovely songs ! Barfi gives us a message that a love which does not end in a happy ending is not a lost one ,for love is above the physical intimacy of "50 shades of grey" its pure like a morning dew .its like falling in love all over again ,"pyaar ke sikkon se chal banyein ashiyaan..................................................sehar"
Have you ever been in love
With someone you can never have? So close you can touch her hand Yet, so far to feel her heart? Have you ever lived in pretense Quietly loving without any condition? A feeling of love that's unknown Hiding it, not knowing for how long. Have you ever fallen deeply Loving the person unconditionally? So afraid to say what you feel Acting normal, keeping things still. Have you ever been hurt unintentionally But put on a smile, pretended to be happy? Deep inside you're in pain and suffering But outside you're jolly and laughing. Why does holding her hand feel so right? Your heart smiles everytime she's at sight Hearing her sweet voice makes your day Hope you can hug her in a special way.
