Happy Endings.

May 9, 2011

I watched a movie called “Royal wedding” last weekend starring Kate Middleton and Prince Williams. This real life event was almost like a movie because it had all the elements that make a romantic movie – Love between a prince and a commoner, the rise of a commoner into the royalty, princess bride, suspense (what will she wear, who will she wear, will she choose Diana’s designer and blah, blah), the regal walk down the aisle, the vows and all this excitement ending with a kiss.

We all love happy endings because we all grew up reading or watching the fairy tales. How can we forget the beautiful quote from Cinderella “A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep. Have faith in your dreams. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true.

I think this whole wedding was even more special because Kate was like one of us who married an actual Prince and she in her beautiful white dress looked almost surreal.

This real life movie also had some comic relief from the giggling Prince Harry all the weird hats. 

But this was not it. Last weekend had more happy endings in store. Before the weekend closed, we heard about the triumph over evil after 10 long years, the downfall of Osama Bin Laden orchestrated like a slick spy movie. The Navy Seals assumed the role of a group of super heroes who put an end to World’s most wanted man. Again, it reminded me of my childhood days. Haven’t we all grown up reading about super heroes and how good will always prevails over the evil?

I call the last weekend as a welcome oasis after a 2 long years of being in the doom. The Royal Wedding on one one hand provided an escape from reality while the OBL saga gave reality a ne wmeaning. These two events gave us a hope for better things to come, a hope to surge ahead and attain our goals and dreams and a hope for a turnaround. It sure was a weekend when movies and fairy tales descended into our real lives.

Here’s hoping for more such happy endings, cheers!
