Main kar sakti hain…

To keep the confidence that you can do it when you are ridiculed by your family constantly of your failures in life… To do that in face of belittling of your small achievements by your loved ones…

When you can say ‘mereko na har cheez main mazza ata hai’… Even when there are hundreds of pressures in your life… And whilst your eyes are dreaming of flying with and like the elegant air hostesses (who ignore you by the way)… That dichotomy of a grand dream on one side and yet to find the victory giggles in your heart when you get a local shop owner bring a broom to your building on the other…

To show the reality of how a bond of love really is – not rosy all the time, yet the one that stays… Mixed with frustrations in a job where you are sidelined due to nepotism after more than a decade of hard work… In bed with insecurities due to flirtations that begins with the sensous ‘hello’ of your partner said to someone else… And yet with an effort to get close once in a while… That wears the red kurta and the aviators – for the one who loves knows what or rather who is more important in life… you know, heroes are not always the ones who wear capes and fly… And many who should really be idolised are at times not even the ones on whom the movie is about…

To depict the delicate nature of a kids mind and how ingenious they are in finding means to overcome their own difficulties… And how fragile their ability is to manage a family that is breaking… To have a 10 year old confess from the heart – ‘papa – you are very good, mama is very good. I am the one who is bad’… There cannot be a parent without a lump in their throat when they hear that…

Even the nuances and subtle showcase of a women who heads an organisation with confidence… Taking a risk on a newbie… And yet after giving it all – when faced with disaster and a walk out… To maintain calm and still be able to say ‘tu khush hai na’… That human touch and leadership…

‘Mera na kabhi nimbu nahi girta, fir main jeetu ki haru’… That one small line that teaches how to define your happiness… Even when you play to win by the rules…

Freaking so many levels of human nature… Delivered via the backdrop of a normal middle class mumbai family… Americans can save the world in their cinema… But the victories that humans really care about are the ones which movies like this depict… Where you win against your own personal challenges…

What however touched me the most… Is not just the rock solid confidence that the subject line of this blog suggests… Nor the naughty sparkle in the eye that was going with it all the time… Or the drilling persistence that powered it along…

But the fact.. that inspite of all failures and road blocks that kept coming… There was always an intent to find a solution… A different route if one failed… An alternative to make it happen someway… No matter how unconventional it was… No matter how many times the castles in the air were built and fell… be it taxi business or chit funds… But to have maintained an attitude of finding a way… To me that is what it meant…

Main kar sakti hai…
