Most of us love to walk in the rain. For once to shed all our inhibitions and allow the drops to quench our reticence and let us be. A look at the cover page and you may well be mistaken to think it to be the same. A story of a young couple madly in love running around trees made for a cozy reading with a hot coffee besides your window on a lazy rainy afternoon. But then there is a lot more than what meets the eye.

We are all in some way or the other fascinated by the stories that are created on the celluloid, knowing fully well that they are imaginative and ingenious to say the least with an exemption of some being inspired from true events.
We have all lived vicariously the journey of the characters while watching a movie with some even carrying the feeling home. Who doesn’t want to be in a dreamland living a life “king-size”? With living in huge mansions, traveling in private jets, so on and so forth. With everything at your command, life being at ease with things around and with there being always a happy ending. Who wouldn’t want such a life and I being no exception. But then there are so many movies and numerous characters that have transported me to a utopian world, if I may use that here.
But then when I was asked this question there is one character that stood tall amongst scores of others that have made me identify with them. The biggest reason amongst others was that it would be every aspiring man’s dream life. It is that of Kabir Thapar aka Bunny in the movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
Kabir at one hand has a dream job of traveling around the world and covering the best that the universe offers so also gets to experience the finer things in life first hand. But then on the other hand he has shown that to achieve you got to dream first - “care to dream & dare to achieve” is brought out clearly by him and I would love to live by that cliché. He has shown a strong desire to go for his dreams and was ready to make whatever sacrifices that were needed. That is another aspect that inspired me and made identify with him.
Also Kabir brings to the board another very important aspect that we lack in our society, is that of agreeing to disagree. Kabir has been brutally honest throughout the movie, which is what I am too. He is a very social person but managed to keep his personal life separate. That brings me another facet of his personality and which I dearly adore in my life is that having you close group of people, for whom you would always want to go that extra mile.
So to wrap it up I would just not want to play the character but imbibe and reproduce all of his aesthetics in everyday life.

Could never have had enough, but it was time to make a call. To do or not to do was the question that kept oscillating in her mind freaking her out. After maneuvering her mind for long hours she could finally come to terms with it and decided to return the book to the library.
