Not talking to someone

I see a tall, fair, quiet young man almost everyday on my TV screen, mobile screen, laptop screen. He is all over my mind you see 😉 . But I have never spoken to him nor even seen him outside those screens; there is geographical distance and social status difference in between. Still I like him. He is an actor by profession. Only 3 films old in Bollywood career. But I loved his work, especially in his latest film. I never spoke to him. He doesn’t even know I exist. Still whenever I see his films, I seem to connect with him, I dunno why. I feel what he “pretends” to feel,  I seem to find a truth in what he is “made” to say. I tend to believe that he is what he portrays in his films; serious, intense, can do anything for love. But I don’t even know the real him. He too doesn’t know there is a girl called Priya who likes him so much that she has dedicated a blog post to him, proclaiming her liking towards him to the world. You might think I am mad, but I have no problem, cause I believe everyone in this world have some sort of madness or the other, and hero-worshiping has been a common trait among we Indians.

Whenever I see any of his film, I always wished I was working in Bollywood, so that I could get to work with him, or just interact with him, somehow I could be a part of his life. I know I am talking nonsense, but that’s what I feel !!!!! I just can’t help. He has become one of the reasons for my sometimes thinking of diverting my ambition towards acting.

I have even started daydreaming. Whenever I read a romantic novel, I start seeing the scenes floating in front of my eyes and I imagine the female protagonist to be me and the male protagonist to be him (How silly of me ☺). Even I sometimes think I have gone mad, I am dreaming of something which is practically impossible. But I am a teenager after all, so……….. It happens 😉

But don’t you think its striking ? Connecting to someone whom you haven’t spoken to ? Its actually weird. Very weird. Do I need a psychiatrist ? Maybe I am suffering from some mental imbalance. Otherwise why would I behave like this ? See ? I am contradicting myself. At one instant I have no problem that I bear such an attraction and on the other hand I am saying its weird and that I have gone mad. I have seriously no idea what’s wrong with me. This dilemma has been there in me for quite a few days. Now I am venting it out in public, knowing quite well that I might be made fun of. But right now I am trying to ignore this situation.

This is a little confession of a fanatic to her favourite actor Sidharth Malhotra.

The Fault in our stars

Truly speaking, i am not good at writing book or movie reviews. Still i am trying.
Day before yesterday i saw the film “The Fault In Our Stars”. In my view, this film is the best adaptation of any novel. Whenever I saw an adaptation of any novel, I always found the novel much more appealing. But in this case both the novel (of the same name written by John Green) and the film are equally great. Simply great. The film is as heart touching as the book. The film has that essence of pure love which John Green has brought out in the book. The filmmakers very beautifully and aptly depicted the journey of the two cancer patients. Every event seemed real, nothing unrealistic. The actors too were really good. They very aptly fitted the roles of Augustus and Hazel and wonderfully carried out their roles. I know my review is not good, not appealing, still i could not stop myself from writing.

EXAMS !!!!!!!

Exam time is no less than a tornado. The world around a student seems to have been caught in a whirlpool. Time seems to fly at 100 kmph. Brain becomes so saturated and is under such a pressure that it seems it will burst out anytime. One seems to have a “breakup” with sleep and leisure only to patch up again after exams are over. Memory power seems to confront an “agnipariksha”, where if it stands strong, it can surpass, if not, GAME OVER, exam becomes a disaster from which no rescue team can save. School/college becomes Hitler’s concentration camp and teachers (especially question paper setters) become the Gestapo. During this time, a student may find most number of betrayers. From the day exams starts, one starts planning what to do after exams are over. During exams a student is all devoted to God, spending every alternate minute in praying. You won’t find a more sincere devotee than a student sitting for exams ;).
