Why do all Good Things come to an End?

First things first- yes, you have reached the same place, your very own 'Bare Twaddle'. Just that it is growing up and a few changes shall pertain. I could find no other apter title than 'Redefining Abstractións' for the blog, it means the same, somewhat maturer. :) Just stay tuned.

The title of this post I am talking about the same wonderful number by Nelly Furtado.
She says:

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end...

i wonder at times, do all the good things come to an end? While we comfort someone, to lift up a friend's mood or to cheer up a buddy going through a low moments, we generally say things like 'bad times shall pass' or 'every dark cloud has a silver lining', but then provoking thoughts, all good things too come to an end.

I am an optimist, I firmly believe that things shall be okay.. On second thoughts, last night, I was watching this movie- Luck by Chance. (No, I am not gonna write a review of this movie, neither am I a go-go over Farhan Akhtar). Movie was all right, but the climax touched me particularly.
Its when Farhan Akhtar returns to Konkona, he tells her that he is sorry for what he did to her, and he thinks a lot about her, how had she stood by him in low times, and how she believed him when nobody did. And he apologises and asks her to come back.
The response of Konkana was unusually good for Hindi movies. She doesn't want to return back to him and so tells him that it is okay, she knows he is selfish and he proved that again. The things he told her were all about him that he needs her and he wants her to be his anchor, but never thought about her as an individual. what she wants, what she needs.

I loved the way how logically they portrayed that its not bad to think about yourself- after everything you do for the other person. At the end of the day, you are alone.. By yourself..

It's not at all bad to think about oneself, otherwise people can run us down. Well said. :)

Still reading The Fountainhead?? I'd say, its not even fair to think if its good or bad to think about ones-self. Its only the natural scheme of things.

And yeah, I am not a real listener of the Furtado genre but, heard that song from my brothers collection. To the point you made... its only fun and fair if all good things come to an end, else what's be so different about it anyway??

@REDEFINING ABSTRACTIONS - hmmm... makes sense for what you write... damn cool!!

See you when I see you... :)

Jagjit said...

That was totally practical what she told him when he wasn't able to comprehend his own situation. I loved the movie, and your keen observation too.
