#Blinddate with world life goal
The word i first listened to when i just entered my pre-teens. As far as i can recollect, i was 10 years old. Probably the best time of everyone’s life, where you are unabashedly you! Full of curiosity and full of willingness. I wanted to explore places, circumstances, people, food, luxuries, love, peace, sex and what not. I had sort of incomplete information that usually any teenager of my age had from their peer group.
We belong to an era of strict parenting where we were not allowed to move an inch without parent’s permission and perusal, forget about taking the daring step! We were bad at lying and were caught easily. The peer group or the good old books were the only sources of information we had. We would be slapped hard, if ever we tried to be stubborn. We would be pacified with the mere rolling eyes of our parents towards us. In the nutshell as kids, we saw the world with our elder’s eyes especially parents. As usual the explanation was; Our parents love us so much and they want to protect us from any unseen danger or hurt so they keep us under their feather soft wings and keep us informed or alerted about impending dangers of this life. The issue was that we had not connected well with our own selves but were corrected everywhere. The reason being is we were not allowed to find our own ways. We were always spoon fed. We were not allowed to make mistakes, realize and rectify them. In short, we are what our ancestors were!
I still believe that i still have a child, a teenager, a college going girl inside me who still is a bit unsatisfied while exploring places because we were never allowed to visit places on our own. And even if our parents took us outside, it would be a very restricted visit. We would visit temples, churches, historical places, places attached to our cultural and moral beliefs only. Let me take you a tour of my disgruntled places where i would wanted to visit in different stages of my life before marriage!
Being a more of hard core romantic and a dreamer, my heart has always played havoc with my emotions so kindly be patient while reading my dream destinations to be visited world wide on my #BlindDate with the world!
The Chandni Magic– I was a child and venturing in to teenage when i watched Chandni along with my parents. It was my first ever experience with theater. Big screen just captured my imagination along with the breadth taking views of Switzerland has etched in my heart. I would often dream about wearing chiffon sarees and dancing in the mesmerizing locality of Alpenrausch Lake and Alps romancing my prince charming singing “tere mere hothon pe mithe mithe geet mitwa, aage aage chale hum, peeche peeche preet mitwa”. I would wear multi color bangles and dance on “mere hathon me nau nau choodiyaan hain, thoda thehro sajan majbooriyaan hain”. I would keep dreaming about Switzerland so often that i decided then and there that i would go there on my honeymoon but as destiny had it, my spouse is not a travel freak so all my hopes have been pinned on solo travel with #Luftansa. So Switzerland tops my list of initiating my #blindDate with the world!
The Hum Aapke Hain Kaun Fever– I had entered in my teens and day dreaming about boys wooing and romancing had already caught up my flight of fancy. And we went to watch HAHK with family, of-course! And i was in awe of The Romantic Salman Khan, The Blushing Madhuri Dixit and their fairy tale amour with enchanting and bewitching moments of pure love thrown in. I wanted to visit the lush green conoor tea estates of Tamilnadu to sing “Inn ko hum leke chale hain apne sang apni nagariya, haye re sang anjane ka uspe anjaan dagariya, ye mausam ka jadu ka mitwa” or wanted to reside in the dream house where their romance bloomed in Ooty singing “dhik tana dhik tana dhik tana”. Romance had clouded my vision and i thought that this is somewhere outside India. Though i later discovered that the places are within our own motherland. Though i have seen almost all north India with my father owing to his travelling freak but missed out visiting other zones.
The DDLJ Medicine– I had almost completed my teens when DDLJ released. Fever of romance had hit me hard and my study schedule lagged behind and my grades staggered. And then caught the frenzy of DDLJ. I would fall in love with every second guy i met and started murmuring “tujhe dekha to ye jana sanam, pyaar hota hai deewana sanam, ab yahan se kahan jayein hum, teri bahon me mar jayein hum” complete with background scores and humming. I would become “Simran” and the crush would turn in to “Raj” and the dialogue “mujhe le chalo raj, mujhe le chalo” I was bitten by DDLJ bug absolutely. I would romance “Raj” in Switzerland, London and Green fields of Punjab where “raj” would play guitar and i would sizzle on its tunes. So London also came to my #BlindDate List.
The Bride and Prejudice syndrome– Now i was almost grown up to be marriageable age and this movie came to screens. The ever perfect bachelor Aishwarya Rai looking forward to meet her prince charming. Having high standards and non trusting in traditional methods of marriage, she sets out on her journey to find love and romance and finally finds in blue eyed Darcy set in the beautiful locals of England. Thus England gave me another goal to have my #BlindDate with the world.
My blind date with my world has to be totally chosen and accepted by me, full of me, my happiness, my needs, my demands, my whims and everything would be mine!
That’s what i would call mine #BlindDate.
