Magical moments

Happy friendship day my dear blog friends. Of all the means which wisdom gives us to ensure happiness throughout our lives, by far the most important is friendship. It was a magical weekend for me in so many different ways. From childhood dreams coming true to friends making you feel that you are wanted on friendship day, it makes life worth living!  Today's Song of the day is also about that magical moment that Shashi Kapoor experienced when he heard the sexy but elegant Zeenie baby singing the song Ishwar satya hai in the movie Satyam Shivam Sundaram. The voice had so much magic in it, that it made Sashi K. want to see the face behind the voice. Raj Kapoor captured this magical moment with such passion that today, when I hear this song, I get goose bumps. India is so lucky to have Lata Mangeshkar, alive, even today, creating this magic with her golden voice. Nightingale of India, I salute you!

A magical moment is always associated with happiness. It is a special event that you experienced in your life. Often you let your happy life slip in the pursuit of materialistic happiness. All it takes is one life altering event to change your perspectives on things. Disney World is one such place, where every person young or old experiences that magical moment. Bollywood has known to create magical moments on celluloid, whether it was drunk Devdas's eternal love for Paro, played by the Badshah of romance SRK, or the blind Rani Mukerjee, feeling snowfall in the movie Black or the Jadu ki Jappi dialogue delivered by the tough Munna Bahi, played by Sanjay Dutt in the movie Munna Bhai MBBS, they were all so memorable and loved by each and every cine goer. It is so heart warming to listen to stories from people who have experienced such magical moments in their life. Magical moments is different for different people. It can be very simple or something heroic. It could be an image or a scene. It is a vivid memory that stands out from all other memories. There were many magical moments in my life so far. But the one that stands out the most was the miracle called childbirth. I feel proud to be a Mom.Thank god for this wonderful gift. It is a moment that every woman should have the privilege to experience. I feel so blessed to be given the name Maya which coincidentally means Magic or Illusion. Like they say, it's all  in the name and I want to live up to it. Shub ratri folks!
