hi, what is happening. just logged in, tried to catch up on all that had happened but it was too much. 60 pages overnight. amazing record. What all were you talking. I will never get work done if i try reading all the previous. But how can i resist my two bits on some of the topics.
Everybody remembers the tailor scene and maan's eyes going all over geet's face. That shows how effective that was.
I repeat Maan looks best in white kurta. Divine. Yummy. of course it is a different thing that if a guy wants to look good he should wear a white kurta

Mehraan, about your question on the strength of long relationships, have you seen a hollywood movie titled "Seven year Itch" starring Marlyn Monroe. It is hilarious. You should see it. Its about this guy who develops a crush for a girl when his wife of seven years is away. He finally comes to his senses when he realises the folly of it.
More generally the term "7-year itch" came because most marriages in the west crumbled after 7 years (now it crumbles much before that). Partners tend to re-evaluate their relationship after being with each other for a fairly long time. One may notice signs one has ignored for long and try to change it. The relationship can get stronger if the partners are committed to each other and try to rectify the flaws in their bond but can weaken if they couldn't care less or find someone else more alluring.
Coming to the two leads, I think it is best not to discuss their personal lives in the forum as it is against the rules and after all every one is entitled to their privacy, including the stars. As someone who has been married for nearly 16 years, all I would say is that there is no relationship which can only boast of the ups and no downs. One needs to work at it always to ensure that the sheen does not go. If one is not ready to do so, its better to snap it before the wounds fester.
I loved seven year itch. All marriages have to be worked at. But it is so much more difficult for the people in the glamour world. But nowadays I am seeing it coming down towards professionals and ordinary people. Husbands and wives have to invest time with each other and it is an uphill task and participate in each other's lives, otherwise the husband's thinking goes in one direction and the wife is left behind going in another direction. Eevrybody is taking the easy way out by getting out instead of sorting out.
@ opti. BTW regarding cooking. My friends and family can't recognise me and my father actually reconfirms with me everytime he east something i have made whether i have actually made it. All through school and college i made puris for him b4 going to work bcos the rotis would never come ok. my philosophy was you need food to survive and you cannot live for food.
but got married to a guy where my mil was the world's best cook and very interested in doing it well, selfless enough to feed me when i was working 20 hour days and spoilt my tongue in the bargain. She was the smart one after all. So the day my tongue had got longer and my priorities ahd changed, took a break from work to bring up my kidos, started cooking and she had laboriously written out her recipes for the day the chicken comes home to roost.
It is so embarrassing sometimes bcos i am now doing all the things i swore i would never do.
Two things i read somewhere i have treasured.
1. Never say never
2. Keep your words soft. You never know when you might have to eat them.
I don't know when i will be able to catch up with all the others in the club, prema, roopa, meher, hiral, bluey.........have a nice day. will keep looking in off and on. i am missing the chatting process. maybe tonight after the episode i will log on for chatting. hope it is worth it. anyway as someone wisely said 'kii phark painda hai'
