It's tough to start writing this but can't postpone or delay it anymore as the farewell day is upon us. Anyways, it's important for me to recount my journey, mostly smooth, sometimes rocky, of these 9 months with NBT and around 7 months with this forum.
I have seen quite a few members here saying that NBT is their first ever experience of regular Indian telly. I claim the rights to same category of people, I used to literally despise even the name/mention of Indian soaps. My mother and sister being regular avid watchers of soaps, always insisted that it's good time pass but me being me, had been eternally revolted towards anything related to soaps.
Anyways, was going through a major down phase in my life when even work was not proving enough to keep my mind occupied, not enough to shoo away the dark depressing thoughts. Mother's phone counselling is what brought NBT to my most vague notice. Mid-february, i finally decided to give my mother's words a chance (:p) , googled the name of "na bole tum na maine kuch kaha - watch online" and wow!! I got it and watched the then latest episode, and guess which one it was?? Had the good fortune to watch the "toy shop" MM scene as my first taste of them. Right then, it was enough to get me hooked, I went back, researched, opened big boss 5 finale ceremony and checked out NBT's short segment in it, it's promos and the works. Since then, there's been no looking back.
Had been acquainted with the existence of IF already, so decided to become a silent reader of forum updates/news segments. First venture of getting my account active was during the holi celebrations.
Feeling immensely sad about having to say farewell to my beloved show. It's been like a most-dear friend to me. It managed to pull me out of an abyss of darkness and blessed me with an alternate universe where all my spare hours, and more, went into following the dilchasp encounters of Mrs.Vyas and Mohan. Mrs. Megha Vyas so to say, was just a fictional character but in this case, everytime I saw her, the unreal became real and most tangible. This character, a portrayal of a lone woman's strength and code of going about her life, nourishing two beautiful children in such a way as to make Nanhi's every mannerism hold light up to her perfect upbringing. It was the moment when Mohan came running to an abrupt halt in front of a hands-outstretched steel-eyed Megha, that was the moment when i also came to halt alongside Mohan, since that point onwards, Mohan and Megha just became like my most cherished friends. Two individuals, who gave the term "being poles apart" a new meaning.
Mohan, an outwardly carefree bachelor and focused strong-minded professional, had his heart's eye unknowingly grappling to get hold of a mainstay, a foothold in the fast rushing life. Megha, a delicate vulnerable 28yr old girl serenading in the guise of a dry, stern widow. Pretending to presumably live her life for her kids' sake while letting isolation, desolation thrive and take veiled roots in the deepest recesses of her heart. Then came Nanhi, the cupid in disguise of an angelic adorable 8year old cutie pie. Mohan Nanhi's special friendship, is and will definitely remain a watershed concept in tellyland , for years to come. A friendship, free from the bindings of pleasure and mutual benefit, enduring hardships and attaining heights of adorability, week in and week out.
As these three characters and their mutual relationships went through the rigour of highs and lows of fate, i remained with them. I remember being in suspense, at the same time cheering the three musketeers on when the school gates were being shut in the face of Mohan's racing Damru.
Oh how i remember literally bouncing in anticipation to see Megha Mohan's reactions on their first ever encounter in Prabhat Leher office. It proved upto and went even beyond my expectations, they actually fought over "meri desk tumhari desk" :)) And of course, my heart skipped beats, whenever mohan threw those intense glances megha's way. Megha's pro-love and Mohan's anti-love lectures to a bewildered and hapless Karan. That memorable Jannat ka corridor where silence reined supreme but still, the eyes talked and oh did they talk!! Oh yes!! Some of my fav lines were the ones that were communicated in silence between MM :D
Mohan finally breaking the walls of cool reserve around his heart, to realize and accept that it's the warmth and music of Megha's laughter, her peace of mind and welfare that leads his heart. Megha struggling valiantly, against her very heart, by tying Amar's memories around her throat like a death noose, all but nearly killing her urge to live a happy life and find happy love.
All in all, the more that MM walked forward, the distance separating them stretched longer and longer. Their dream to attain their destiny but that destiny always ended up becoming just their dream. Yet they plod on, getting themselves lost in the way of their wishes/dreams but at last finding their happiness together.
All this and much more, like the wise person of Guru, sulking angry cutie Addu and sweetest Jiji, all of them combined formed my little friends circle for so many past months, it seems like a part of them has grown inside me hence i hope the gate of these memories always remains open, not in sad but in a sweet happy way. Thanks to the makers of NBT and it's whole star cast, so much for making me experience a wide range of emotions, the fleeting passion, hope, joy, pain and sweet depression. Thanks Nanhi for your angelic dialogues of wisdom and innocence, Guru for being GURU with his Maa-baapu stories, Mohan for giving a lesson to us in resilience and persistence, Megha for being an inspiration of self-confidence and high self-respect.
Will miss you NBT but not in sad way, not at all :D
Thanks to NBT for one more thing. Big thing!! For making me get acquainted with this forum, hence MMT. Don't know or can't know whither life will take us, 3 months is a period too small and sometimes too long to let us guarantee anything. Whatever time I have spent in forum/MMT will be among my most cherished treasured times, for years to come. Had a super rich experience discussing and ruminating about everything related to NBT, indulging in every kind of madness within the confines of MMT with buddies who seem to have become my virtual family. To name a long list, here goes - Neelu, Sumi, Kul, Ami, Udhay, Subha, Mamta, Kiran, Shourie, Meera, Siree, Ash, Reshu, Bidzie, Vrinda, Susheta, Khushi, Preet, KK Bro, Lekz.
And then Komal, Pal, Shama, Geethu, Sita, Rekha, Manesha, Dhwani,Hope, Leesan, Puja, Bishal, Vyas, Swati, Bhanu, Shamil, Ankur..
sorry if I forgot anybody..
Had the best of best times with you all in MMT or elsewhere.
Next post is a VM I prepared to give rhythm to my feelings of having to bid farewell to NBT, hope everyone enjoys the VM, thanks :)
