And yes the single thought was “this show GOT to release on DVD” – because all I wanted to do was keep this show in my possession forever! A very selfish thought turned into, probably the most selfless thing I have done in my life?! The thought was so strong that I made a Facebook account for the sole purpose of being a part of the “Geet” forum. I went to the forum as a silent observer. I still consider myself that. But as I introduced this single thought of mine to the world of “Geet”, I wasn’t so silently observing anymore. I found four people – four sisters I should say; Zainab, Sejal, Iffy and Rani. That single thought of mine was not so single anymore – it has become a thought for many. I now run a page with my sisters to turn this single thought into a reality for all of us Geet fans.

As I watched through the episode, I felt a sense of fulfillment and could relate to every emotion of Maaneet as they held their bundle of joy. The moment they longed and craved for had finally arrived. The tears of joy that trickled down from the eyes of Geet, reminded me of her Hoshiyarpur days. In both the instances, she was married and she was expecting. While her loved ones made it look like a curse then, it brought in immense happiness in her life this time around, as she was able to share every moment of her journey of motherhood with the love of her life, her Maan.
If I cast my mind back I can remember the urgency, the absolute compulsion to watch, to catch the live-updates on the FB page, to find links to the YouTube uploads as soon as possible so that we could all watch immediately, to comment, to defend the show at times and to condemn at others. I remember the devastation I felt when Maaneet separated at the end of October 2010; I think in some ways that was the moment which cemented some deep friendships as I found that there were other intelligent, articulate women who felt the same way.
I will miss GHSP, more than I had realised. But I know it will live in my memories for a long time, if not forever. The friends I have now, the bonds forged in the unexpected arena of an FB page, the relationships I have now- they will be with me forever.
