"Everything has a beginning and an end. Jo shuru hua hai vo khatam hoga hi. This is the law of nature." These are the phrases I have been repeating to myself since we all came to know about the ending of our beloved show. It DID NOT WORK.
Then I took another approach and started chanting, "Oh, for god's sake, grow up. It is just a show. Maan and Geet are fictional characters. Stop behaving like a nutcase." This did not work either.
Then I said to myself, do I even want to let go of something that has so deeply touched my heart, has given me a glimpse of divine?
The resounding answer was "No, Never."
My journey of Geet began in earnest with the entry of Maan Singh Khurana. After that day my life was never the same again and never will be.
For me Maan and Geet's love story is far more impact full than Romeo and Juliet's or Laila and Majnu's. In this beautiful story Of Maan and Geet there was so much hope, so much laughter and so much dignity. And that's why it worked for me. Maan and Geet always gave hope and courage to each other and to us. Even in their most trying times they were optimistic and were always selflessly thinking about other's welfare. They always, without fail, brought a smile to my face.
I am so very grateful for them.
I live in USA. I told some of my friends (American) about Geet. We watched one episode one evening when they were in my house and that was it. They got completely hooked to it. (Of course, I had to translate for them) We had so many dinner and Geet nights where we would watch 10 or 15 episodes or even 20. All of them were and still are mesmerized by Maan and Geet and by their sizzling chemistry. Often, they would share with me that they had never seen something like this before - so innocent, so pure, so beautiful and so subtly sensuous.
Another cute thing which I wanted to share was that now every time my 9 year old daughter falls or trips, instead of crying, she calls her dad or me, asks us to pick her up and the moment she is in our arms, she looks in to our eyes and starts singing Mahi........
I know it will be hard to live without Maan and Geet on a daily basis. However, they will always remain in our hearts and I for one will keep watching their scenes.
Hope to see them together again in the near future.
Much much love to you all.
