of movies, bodies and marriage bells

I was reminded by a friend that it’s more than a week I posted something. I have not run sort of ideas. It’s the other way round. Ideas, await being penned to see their chrysalis happen. I regret not being able to give them life. I regret not reading my favourite blogs more than posting them. Life is going full throttle. Watched Roman holiday, Veer Zaara, Hulchul, Aitraz, Lakshya, Kyun Hogaya Na and liked them in that order. Audrey Hepburn made her debut with Roman Holiday. She is extremely beautiful and talented and belongs to the era where beauty meant very thin waist. Thank God, the concept has changed and the Bips, J Los’ of today and their ilk has made ‘bootylicious’ body in vogue. (It’s a different thing that I hate both the babes) How much can you starve afterall? I can’t. Not even a meal.

Marriage bells are ringing for some very dear people. Che Romila , a person more than a sis and a friend to me is tying the knot on my B’day, the 3rd of January (there, I said it. Don’t forget to wish me else, I remind again :-) )

My college-mates Arti and Shalini, both daughters of defence personnels are tying the knot too. For Arti, it’s arranged and now she told its love. According to her parents the ultimate man is one who is in the Defence. Opinions!

I am very glad for Shalini. She is a Brahman from U.P and he is from Mangalore, a typical non-veggie. After almost 7 years, their parents gave their blessings to go ahead. An alchemy of two different regions, beliefs, rituals, food habits. Commitment!

Hold on to your love sweeties. I feel one should marry not with the hope but with the conviction that one would be loved and cherished and never say ‘never’ to love and happiness.

Oh! How would it be to marry the person you want to marry?

you are a movie freak. wow. seen it all. now i know where i can get the best reviews in town.

every one is 'defensive' of his or her clan. hence, it becomes ultimate!

as for "Oh! How would it be to marry the person you want to marry?"
totally. couldn't agree more to that one.

divya said...

lovely thought " I feel one should marry not with the hope but with the conviction that one would be loved and cherished and never say ‘never’ to love and happiness."

congrats to all ur friends :) ..

s! said...

"congratulations" to all those people getting married!!

"happy birthday" in advance.. in case i forget.. which is unlikely since i was born the day before you!! ;-))

marriage.. is 'finding the one you love' harder, or keeping the one you love' harder? who knows?!

My dad was in the army, now retired.
My mom was totally against me joining the forces
So its a personal thing.

Cool you have time to watch so many movies :)
I saw the incredibles and swadesh on friday, liked them both

IMHO Audrey Hepburn is beautiful because she is graceful, innocent and the most wonderfully expressive eyes, its hardly about the waist. Thats the reason I like Madhubala as well.

Congrats to your friends.

Asking for permission to send you a e-card?

Manish said...

Very nice post. Congrats to all concerned.

And about "How would it be to marry the person you want to marry?" Well not sure. Most of the times person whom you want to marry is already married :-)

Pallavi said...

Good news all around.. so many movies... I loved roman holiday !! :)

despiteme said...

well happy birthday in advance....the only movie in your list that i have seen is Roman Holiday...and yes they had incredible waists in their time.

Of marrying the person you want to marry...i think there is a saying "Careful what you wish for...it may come true".

The person we want to marry may not be the person we ought to marry ...not our soul mate or equal partner for life....

7 yrs!! hats off to Ms.Shalini n her fiance. Cheer up folks, so the world isnt a bad place afterall. we can rise above all our differences n be one.
Arunima, convey my wishes to them.

watched Swades.it's ok.i'm disappointed though.

"Oh! How would it be to marry the person you want to marry?"
hey!Arunima, who's tht guy abt whom u keep mentioning time n again in ur blogs?? ur sadness can be felt in ur blogs while talking abt him or abt ur relationship. if u still love him, y dont u do something regarding this n if nothing can be done it's better to forget him.

i hate advising others but i'm helpless here.

manuscrypts said...

yup, depending on who you take your vows with, the marriage could be a woe or a wow :)

Une Femme Folle said...

congratulations and best wishes to your friends!

and as for your q, manuscrypts said it all, i guess.. :)

you have a way with words, lady.. keep rockin! :)

Prat said...

All the nice ones are either married or have an alternate lifestyle. As for the lucky few who marry their one-and-only, great going and God bless!
Nicely crafted page, well done!

Stone said...

Ad astra per aspera said...

Marriage...hmmmmm, No comments!(itch itch ). Just remembered a stale joke. A man proposes to the love of his life. She says 'NO'...and they lived happily ever after. *GRIN

romila said...

Thanks,dear and thanks for the wishes being showered here. True, there's some sinister familiarity in thinking and taste between you and me. Me think, their is a nil line between bloodline and some relationships which undoubtably exist between u and me. What say u? Btw, Belated happy bday.
