"There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature."

good old DDLJ

I am watching Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (for the nth time?) and wondering why this movie never does lose its appeal!

I know the dialogues and the sequences almost by heart.. but I still cannot change the channel...

My most favorite dialogue from this movie is where Raj reminisces about what his mother had told him: ..at every crossroad of life, you will find two paths - one wrong and one right..the wrong path will draw it towards you.. it will offer you fast prizes..but at the end you will be a loser.. the right route will be difficult and unattractive.. you will face numerous obstacles.. but in the end you will be a winner in the game called life..

I know, in today's world, it seems too simplified and ideal.. but this has helped me on many occasions when wrong routes attract us with tempting possibilities... and resisting ourselves becomes difficult.. I try to remember this dialogue and keep a check on myself..
