I love Bollywood movies! I recently discovered a TV channel that shows Bollywood movies everyday – guess the size of my smile when I found it! Many may think they are cheesy; I think they tell nice stories and include pieces of dance and music – I simply love these parts! Today I’ll talk about one of the movies I watched last week.
The film tells the story of Parveen Babi, a very successful and beautiful actress, who suffered from schizophrenia. It shows her relationship with Mahesh Bhatt, who says the film is his tribute to the actress and the time spent with her, hence the title Woh Lamhe (Those Moments). Parveen Babi is called Sana Azim in the movie, to avoid directed reference to the late actress.
Today’s message is something that the male protagonist says to “Sana” in Woh Lamhe:
“Life is like sandcastles on a beach. Waves come and destroy them. But traces of the sandcastles are always left behind in hearts and memories, in every heartbeat… And no waves or time are able to destroy memories, while there’s a heart beating“.(Originally it may have a different meaning – I’m transcribing the English subtitles.)
History is passed that way, of course: by the ones (ourselves) who can talk to the next generations about past moments. Another quote on the subject comes from fashionedbylove:
“On its journey through history, love preserves intact the events it touches“. (Louise de Vilmorin)
I hope you all have a great week, full of love and smiles!
