I could picture myself roughly over a year ago sitting in front of my laptop biting my nails and impatiently waiting for the clock to strike 9:00 pm in India. Just to let you know I was living in the UK hence the time difference was getting on my nerves. I had to type in the Google search, local time in Mumbai, India and keep refreshing the page so that I don’t miss the countdown. You might wonder what this ‘Hoo Haa’ is all about. I am actually waiting for my favourite tv series to air on StarOne. YES! I am talking about the best thing that has ever happened to me…GEET Hui Sabse Parai!!
Although I started off watching the show on it’s 11th episode, not to mention it was the episode which showed the introduction of MAAN, THE character which kept me hooked onto the show ever since and the combination of MAAN and GEET, most famously known as MAANEET changed my mere interest towards the show to unconditional love and obsession. I caught up with missed episodes in a day.
As a person who’s first language is not Hindi and who has no connection whatsoever with India, without any doubt I can say that this show broke all language barriers and took me to another level and connected me with people not only in India, but all around the globe. Thanks to the GEET fan page on Facebook, I was blessed with the opportunity to interact with thousands of fellow GEET fans around the world who were as crazy as I was about the show and made me feel that I am not alone *winks*
Then began the addiction of spending 24/7 on GEET page discussing about daily episodes, writing analysis, editing pictures and most importantly posting my daily polls on the page which ended up the GEET page administrator crowning me as the ‘Poll Queen’ *grins* My love for the show was so strong that I also joined with a team of people who uploaded subtitled videos of GEET episodes on Facebook on a page called BoloGEET. The best part about this is that the team of people became very good friends and are still together.
Now coming to my all time favourite scene in GEET. 26th August 2010, the day when MAAN forces GEET to become his Mangethar. The situation was apt with Pari’s exit, the atmosphere was romantic with the soft trickling rain and the scent of candles, GEET was stunning and MAAN was too hard to resist. I could still remember how MAAN’s lips curled into a smile when GEET said ‘Haan’ and the shocking pain on his face when she changed the word in to a sentence of agreement to be his mangetar. The passion of love burning within them was stronger than the flame of the candle MAAN was holding. The scene ended perfectly with MAAN carrying GEET in his arms and the unofficial engagement completes itself
Thank you GEET team for giving me an experience to remember, moments to cherish and people to love, even after the show ends.
