"Zindagi Na Milegee Dobarra"

Most people don’t discover what life is all about until just before they die. While we are young, we spend our days striving and keeping up with social expectations. We are so busy chasing life’s big pleasure that we miss out on the little ones, like dancing barefoot in a park on a rainy day, or planting a rose garden or watching the sun come up. We live in an age where we have yet to master ourselves. We have taller buildings but short temper, more possessions but less happiness, fuller minds but emptier lives. Do not wait until you are on your deathbed to realize the meaning of life and the precious role you have to play within it.

This leads us to the question what is the meaning of the life? What is the purpose of my life? What does the future holds for me? I was searching answers to these questions and all of a sudden I came across the movie “Zindagi Na Millegi Dobara.” For the first time, a movie inspired me to bits. It made me realize that all of us have been so busy in our lives that we forgot to discover our true selves; we forget to live in the moment. One of the most important lessons I have learnt from this inspiring movie is that, everyone’s life is a treasure and you are so much more than you know. The life you live today doesn’t have to be the life you lead tomorrow. Make a choice. Take a leap. Rise above your circumstances to your next level of greatness.

We have been so engrossed in lives that we forgot what true happiness and joy is one needs to realize that happiness does not arrive when you achieve certain things. It comes when you think certain thoughts and feel certain feelings. Happiness is nothing more than a state of mind that you create by the way that you process and interpret the events of your life. Happiness can be found in small moments of life, it can be found in things which are small yet they give us inner peace and joy. For example, in the movie, happiness for these three friends was achieved through that memorable journey. They achieved happiness by throwing away all the negative feeling and worries of life, in return they took joy from every moment.

We often stick to the shore. We forget that clinging to save shores in your life is nothing more than making a choice to remain imprisoned by your fears. And it’s impossible to discover new oceans without letting go off the shore. As seen in the movie that each of those three tried to overcome their fear. Someone did it by skydiving, someone by deep-sea diving and someone simply by letting go off a stagnant relationship. This shows that happiness can be easily achieved by exploring the life, by taking risk and by just fighting your fears.

Remember, life is such a fragile thing. It is a priceless treasure that we are given to guard and make se of to the best of our ability. That it will not come again is what makes it so sacred. So let’s return to, from where we started. What is life? Finally I have my answer, life is a game. Don’t take it too seriously. Have fun. Dance. Laugh. Love. Never forget the importance of living with unbridled exhilaration. Never neglect to see the exquisite beauty in all living things
