Seems like I am trying to be filmi, a famous dialogue of a Sharukh Khan Movie ‘ Kal ho na Ho’ “ aaj … aaj ek hasi aur baant lo… aaj ek ansoon aur pee lo…. Aaj ek zindagi aur jee lo……….. aaj ek sapna aur dekh lo… aaj … kya pata, kal ho na ho..”
Seems like it is incomplete as it can add a long list and as the situation of COVID-19 is going and we are confined to our homes this list seems to be increasing day by day.
1. Aaj ek aur call kar lon
When was the last time you called your loved one (friends, foes, family, colleagues, or acquittances)? It’s never late or long enough to make a single call which can make things different. This should not be a reason that he/she should call me first. Things can never be bad enough to make the first call. Try it feels good maybe this is your last call altogether.
2. Aaj ek aur Rishta sawar lon
When was the last time you tried to mend your broken relationship? When was the last time you tried to make the first make to fix things and make those small adjustments which could have made things much easier and happy to go? If it is your ego or the relation ended on the wrong note it is ok not to make a call but what if with time you just lost the touch and now it just a call away who knows things work out for you.
3. Aaj ek aur Khushi bant lon
when was the last time you paid for someone’s lunch or paid someone’s toll? When was the last time you just went out at the time of adversity and help people suffering on the road? This list can be never-ending but the jist is when was the last time you helped the person who won’t pay you back, but the only thing that he/she can do is give you the smile of your life which can make you sleep in peace for the maybe a long time.
4. Aaj ek aur aansoon ponch lon
When was the last time you picked up the call of the person in distress or need? When was the time when you drove that extra mile to help someone of your loved one? When was the last time when you called your relatives which are away from their kids and these elderly are just waiting to be heard? When was the last time you had a hearing ear? Try is once in a blue moon it is a stress buster and also regulates your BP.
5. Aaj ek aur gana sun lon
When was the last time you switched on your music system to listen to that all-time favorite song that you never get bored with? Please don’t answer you listen to while working ( I am also listening to a song while typing, don’t say you listen to music while driving) No that is not what I am asking you, I am asking when was the last time you went to sleep listening to your favorite music playlist. This is your time you have worked hard for it please listen to a few.
6. Aaj ek aur galti maf kar don
When was the last time you forgive someone? Now, this can be divided into different categories of mischiefs. Life is hard on everyone and people make mistakes, some are intentional and some are innocent and you are the best judge of the mistake. If you still feel the hurt or still feel the pain give yourself time and if you don’t even remember the reason why you are angry with someone please forgive that person and you will feel the peace of your lifetime.
7. Aaj ek aur mafi mang lon
When was the last time you asked for forgiveness? When was the last time you considered the importance of saving a relationship than your ego? The rule remains the same if it hurts and you still feel the pain then give yourself time to mend yourself and if you think now is the time then you shouldn’t wait for a single second and make the first move and say sorry. (I have tried it a lot of places and a lot of places are still on the list).
8. Aaj ek aur muka je lon
When was the last time you tried something out of the box? When was the last time you tried to work on the project you have stopped working on very long ago? When was the last time you tried to drive once again when was the last time you tried to learn a musical instrument that you wished you would play? The list goes on please don’t make it big but yes try to reduce the list. (I am a culprit a lot to be learned and a lot to be experienced)
9. Aaj ek painting bana lon
When was the last time you picked up the pencil and tried to draw some lines and when was the last time you picked up the old box of your having those old colors waiting for your creativity to be on the page of a canvas? You need not be the best and the best seller you must be heart content and you should do this for yourself.
10. Aaj ek bar nach lon
When was the last time you danced? ( Well these days we are dancing to the tune of COVID-19) but yes when was the last time you just closed your eyes and felt the music running down your spine and the flow of energy in the body. You need not be the best dancer in the world. Just try the Sufi dance by moving at a single point but feel the movement and the rush in the body. Closed eyes as no one are around and the music and the movement are a great stress buster. (Try it today)
11. Aaj ek bar dil khol ke hans lon
When was the last time you laughed with all your heart( the baby laugh) this I have learned from Reyan? The way he laughs and the giggles are the best stress busters. We don’t need laughter clubs to laugh we just need the heart of the baby and just find the next possible opportunity and see the difference in the mood and the breathing movement after a heartfelt laugh. (Don’t worry about the so-called society and people around you just need to be yourself and feel the warmth)
the best part is not that Kal ho na ho, even if life is eighty- or ninety years old no issue. It must be without any regrets. Bas wo Khash nai hona chahiye.
When we are on our death bed there should be no regrets in life and there must be ample memories and loads of experience under our belt to make the story of a lifetime.
Kya pata humari Zindagi par bhi ek Movie ban jaye with a tag line Satya ghatnao par aadharit.
