I do not think I will be able to truly describe what my time with Geet has meant, as most words will fall short in comparison to the weight and depth of my emotions, but nevertheless, here goes…
Looking back at my journey with Geet, brought back a flood of memories, that are truly priceless and which will remain with me forever. It took me back to the days when GEET Facebook page would be totally buzzing with nothing but sheer fun and uncontrollable laughter. I remember how everyone would anxiously wait for the days episode to air and by the end GEET wall would be flooded with thousands and thousands of posts; some hyperventilating over the ‘hotness’ and ‘sexiness’ of Maan Singh Khurana, others admiring the courage and adoring the beauty of Geet Handa, not to mention the ones where the pure romance and the sizzling chemistry between Maan and Geet would make everyone go “Mahiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii”; we had our daily takes on the episodes too written by some very talented people, also posts screaming with bucket loads of gaaliyans “GEET Kyun???…bleep bleep bleep…UFF”, and my favourite, the ones that were full of humour, masti and TOTAL FALTU BAQWAAS. Off course along with all the fun and laughter we had our moments of bickering too, but that’s how it was ‘Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham’.
The one scene that has always been my favourite is the one just after Where’s The Party Tonight’s dance sequence, right from their hug to when Geet rejects Maan – Although momentarily, but for the first time Geet and Maan embraced each other wholeheartedly, letting go of all their inhibitions and for me this was their first ‘real’ hug, where they connected together as ‘one’, as Maaneet. I loved the intensity of the scene that followed the hug, how Geet fought within herself; how she defied her heart by pushing Maan away and how that one jhatka left Maan crushed, hurt, rejected and to an extent guilty. There was a whole pick n mix of emotions; be it love, passion, turmoil, hurt, pain, sorrow, guilt, resistance, desperation, anger; The streams of emotions depicted by the two were simply outstanding, not to mention Barry Dhillion’s absolute best dialogues, some of my most favourite. It was also in this very scene where we got one of our much loved famous MSK dialogue “Tumhe farq padhta hai”.
To me Geet HSP is my ‘Kismat Konnection’, for it was due to Geet that I for the first time stepped into the world of virtual communities and found myself a second home (my adda), a second family. It connected me with so many wonderful and amazing people across the globe who are now a part of my world outside of this virtual empire. Geet inspired me to write and bring about smiles and laughter to many on the page; and for that I would forever be grateful to the makers of Geet for giving us a masterpiece and above all to the Almighty who blessed me with such a fate.
Geet Hui Sabse Parayi is a very special chapter of my life, which for me will never end; it will continue to live in my heart every day. It has become an addiction, good or bad, but I find myself unable to let go, so for me it’s time to rewind to episode one again. I can only hope that I get to see my favourite jodi Gurmeet and Drashti once again creating magic together on screen, until then I leave singing these few lines…
“Tum ko bhi hai khabar…Mujhko bhi hai pata…Ho raha hai judaa…Dono ka raasta…Dur jaake bhi mujhse…Tum meri yaadon mein rehna…Kabhie alvida naa kehna…Kabhie alvida naa kehna…Kabhie alvida naa kehna…Kabhie Alvida Naa Kehna……………….……Kabhie alvida………naa kehna”
By the way, I take back what I said about me being ‘lost for words’, after all this is what I am known for!
Jhappizzzzzzzz te pappzzzzzzzz to all Geet Fans!!!
