#BollyExpress BLOGHOP 2019


Starting with the heartiest thanks to Alpana and Pragun two lovely hosts of #BollyExpress Blog hop, for coming up with a great idea of Bollywood Theme and giving us an opportunity to pen down our thoughts in our own style, what else can someone wished for being a lover of songs to end up her year with writing last blog of 2019 with the iconic Bollywood melodious songs.

Initially, I thought to pick any one song or pic to write something but later, felt like some more songs out there in the list were calling me continuously “come take me too, take me too” so eventually ended up on bringing 3 songs together and trust me it made my job bit easier and interesting in weaving my story.

Life is the name of KEEP MOVING, just like every year 2019 has also come to end. We are fully geared up to welcome 2020 with open arms. Nothing is permanent neither good nor bad just like my ” CHILDHOOD RESOLUTION OF EVERY YEAR” oops! Kidding Kidding Kidding !!!……. but above all what matters how strongly we stand against all odds.

Let’s start the ride, by taking you all down the memory lane of those days when watching Television altogether with family members was the trend.

Aanewala Pal Jane Wala Hai

December month used to be the busiest month, besides, become free from the six-monthly exams, you might be thinking of whyyyy still busy ….of course in buying new year greeting cards and posting them to the right address and yes can’t forget to mention, in the long wait of POSTMAN Chacha , who carried lots of colorful HAPPY NEW YEAR greeting cards from different cities of relatives, counting them and thinking of how to turn beautiful cards into decorative items for our drawing room area was also been one of the very important job among all. Making the list of our never completed resolutions also runs in mind side by side like me and my sis favorite resolution line “Ab Hum Nahi Ladenge” Mummy(from next room): “Jo Ek Din Nibh Jaye Vachan To Bajrang Bali ko prasad Chadau Mei” must confess many new year celebrations comes and go but this childhood celebration memories never miss the chance to bring a smile on my face. Ahhh! missing those days badly. Excitement level used to be at the top-notch as soon new year celebration approaches, finally on 31st Dec night comes,sitting in front of TV altogether in the blanket with the hot cup of coffee ,bowl of green peas pohe ( UP style chuda matar), and gajar ka halwa, with full zest and zeal mood of like “Aanewala pal jane wala hai, ho sake to isme zindagi bita do pal jo ye jane wala hai”.

Aanewale Saal Ko Salaam , Jane Wale Saal Ko Salaam.

Enjoying and watching several performances of actors and actresses of those days, we engrossed this much, without even realizing when the clock needles hit each other, the bell rang and here another fresh year has finally arrived, a big shout out for a New Year with the song “Aanewale Saal ko salaam jane wale saal ko salaam HAPPYYYYYY NEWWWW YEARRRR! ” followed by Papa’s voice hmmm …..”volume low, learn to behave, you can’t take off from the duty of being a good neighbor, doesn’t look nice after all odd hours has started”. WE: “Papa who sleeps on this day in this hour” Papa: SO WHAT!” Go to sleep now else you will wake up late in the morning” time to say 2nd never fullfilled resolution line WE: “Papa bas aaj late night jag rahe hai kal se time pr soyenge and morning m jaldi uthenge afterall hame study bhi to karna hai “ Ahemmm Ahemmmm! and quickly, in no time a sigh of realisation that no matter which day, which year it is “hamare din aur saal ki shuruat achchi tab hi hoti thi jab hum daant ki dose le lete the”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MUMMY AND WE 3 MISS YOU A LOT PAPA….

Har Ghadi Badal Rahi Hai Roop Zindagi

My favorite song Har Ghadi Badal Rahi Hai Roop Zindagi gives me real feel of Reality Check….isn’t it? “BETTER LATE THAN NEVER” , phrase doesn’t work every time, Life is the name of CHANGE, be always ready for it, many New Years celebrations will also come and go, ways of celebrating it, ways of wishing new year will also change time to time, it has already taken a shift of 360 deg, from greeting cards to telephone then from WhatsApp text to eventually Whatsapp group text, we become bound to leave behind our habits of keeping greeting cards safely throughout the year now as soon as celebration time ends, we put all our efforts in cleaning phone gallery, yeah! that’s too a very important task. can’t ignore this, see how we change, I know! we didn’t demand this change but we prepared ourselves for this in the belief of betterment of our own lifestyle, can’t agree more on this, that surely change makes us feel good.

In a similar way, standing at the door of the NEW Year, I wish you all A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR, at the same time request you all to leave behind all those confused feelings which resist you, at any of the point, to remain positive, leave behind your grudges if any doubt about your friendship or relationship clear it now, because you never know ki “KAL HO NA HO”, if you feel like to give one more chance to any loved one, try to sort it out sooner or if you feel like there is nothing remain to rejoin or continue with, then please please please don’t move with any useless hopes/ efforts/relations, etc. in new year, best to let the things go at positive note and don’t look back ever and stick with your resolution 🙂 of Obviously unlike my childhood resolution !!!!!!

See you guys next year in 2020. Till then Make Memories, Cherish Moments, be happy, Be Kind, Be Humble, and more important be Honest to yourself….

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Lovely post. This is exactly my childhood when new year celebration was around greetings, late night TV and relishing gazar ka halwa. Life was simpler as choices were limited. Today we have ample of options but that enjoyment is missing. Hope new year will bring lots of happiness in your life.

    Resolutions of new year in childhood were sometimes made to be broken . And siblings fight is what was to be broken on new year day. Liked the way you took prompts in this post.

  11. Childhood memories got refreshed through this mail. Loved it. I remember every year on New year’s my resolution would be to start writing a daily diary . But it would never get completed beyond the first week.

  12. Ahh So nostalgic

    हम सब इस दौर से गुजरे हैं

    वो समय था जब हमारी मासूमियत ही हमारी समझदारी हुआ करती थी

    हम सभी के साथ समान यादें जुड़ी हुई हैं

    मजा आया पढ़ के

  16. Aha, that’s a lovely post. Making greetings cards was my favourite hobby, but this e-generation has taken away those moments of fun and decor. I’m glad ki us jaanewal pal me I spend my life then. True are the lines of the song har ghadi badal rahi hai roop zindagi, har pal yaha jee bhar jio is all we can try to do and live to the fullest. Glad to have your post in #ALPxGUN #BollyExpress
