DDLJ is one of the most popular movies in the history of Indian cinema.
No wonder, almost every person I know loves that movie.
However, there is one favourite scene of mine from the movie, which a lot of people tend to forget.
It is about Simran’s (Kajol’s) grandmom, when she unexpectedly is bedridden, and perhaps won’t be around for long. In that scene, when everyone is surrounding her, she says a line that has forever stayed with me:
I have lived a good life.
This is what is a life truly lived.
Living a life on your own terms.
Living a life that even when the whole world was against you, you lived a life that you found was meaningful.
Live a life that you are proud of. Everything else will take care of itself.
