There is a sweet memory attached with this film. I did not like this movie, the first time i watched it in theatre. Sounds strange now even to me. I along with my Btech friends went to watch this movie straight after the final exam of a tough semester and the movie theme was not apt to our mood that time.
But after that i saw this movie again at home and again and again. I saw it even today and loved it again. Watching it today was all the more special, it made me relate it to my life - the question that is always in my mind, am i doing right by staying away from home. Ofcourse for me swades is not india, its delhi :) .
Couple of lines from the song ' ye jo des hai tera' are still echoing in my ears. I guess one more reason other than being touched with this song is that i have heard the version played by A R Rahman in mtv unplugged around 10 times in last two days. Here are those lines :
" yu to saare sukh hai barse
Par dur hai tu apne ghar se,
Aa laut chal tu ab deewane
Jaha koi ton tujhe apna maane"
Am really feeling home sick. Has been the case since last three weeks or so. Been tough out here, and to add to it each passing day its getting more tougher now and all of sudden i do fear the worst is getting near at a pace which i dont want. Watching swades has compounded the feeling. Lucky for me am going home for a diwali break. It has been three months since i went home. Hope to come back rejuvenated.
Wish you all a happy diwali in advance.
